Welcome to Bleacher Report's live coverage of WWE Raw for August 18.

SummerSlam was a big night for WWE and many of the Superstars involved. We can expect plenty of fallout from the event on Raw and maybe even some seeds planted for feuds heading into Night of Champions.

Three new champions were crowned at the pay-per-view, but the biggest story coming out of SummerSlam is the devastating defeat John Cena suffered at the hands of Brock Lesnar. People have often wondered what it would take to put down Cena, and apparently the answer is 16 German suplexes and two F-5 finishers.

However, Lesnar is not the only one who walked away from SummerSlam a winner. Dolph Ziggler won the WWE Intercontinental Championship from Miz, and Paige defeated AJ in a surprising upset to win her second Divas Championship.

There are plenty of things to address on this week's Raw, but hopefully the wrestling doesn't take a backseat to all the drama going on.

How will Nikki Bella explain betraying her own sister?

What will Lesnar and Cena have to say after what they went through on Sunday?

What's next for Roman Reigns now that he has defeated Randy Orton?

How will Jack Swagger and Chris Jericho cope with their losses?

And lastly, will Sheamus and the United States Championship find a way to become relevant again?

Make sure to bookmark this page and come back Monday night at the start of WWE Raw at 8 p.m. ET. Bleacher Report will have answers to these questions and live coverage of all the action.
