The WWE that existed when Payback went off the air on June 1 is no more.
Gone is the dominant Shield, a trio of Superstars so unstoppable that the reformed Evolution was no match for it. The faction has been shattered, leaving three young competitors in its path who are ready to carry the promotion into the future. All three have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Roman Reigns could prove all speculation true by ascending the ladder and capturing the top prize in all of sports entertainment, becoming the latest breakout star for a company desperately in need of one.
Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, once brothers united as the Hounds of Justice, are now hated enemies. A guaranteed title opportunity awaits them if they can put their hatred aside long enough to focus on the task at hand.
Daniel Bryan is no longer the WWE World Heavyweight champion, his title stripped from him thanks to a neck injury and rehabilitation that are proving far more troublesome than originally expected. He will watch from the sidelines as eight Superstars do battle in a dangerous Ladder match for the title he never lost.
No longer is Cody Rhodes "dashing." Instead, the second-generation star has donned the gold and black face paint of his brother Goldust and become an enigmatic, bizarre character known as Stardust. He has the chance to shine brightest when he and Goldust meet longtime rivals RybAxel.
The theme of June has been change, and Sunday night, WWE could deliver on that theme with new champions and challengers that drastically change the course of the company's history.
Will it, though?
Take a look for yourself.
