With another historic WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view in the books, it’s time to look forward to Monday Night Raw.
Just when you thought WWE could not pull off another great PPV card, they did.
Now, was it better than Money in the Bank?
Let’s leave that one up for debate.
Fans were skeptical of this year’s SummerSlam event, as it was a slimmer card—compared to other events in the past.
But in this case, less meant more and WWE delivered a solid card from start to finish, once again.
Now with the dust still lingering, as questions still have to be answered, we (the fans) anticipate the upcoming Monday Night Raw.
Just like after Money in the Bank, fans are amped up to tune in to the following Monday Night Raw to see what develops.
We saw Mark Henry continue to dominate (continuing his push); Kelly Kelly retaining the Divas title; Daniel Bryan's push to the top getting put on hold with a loss to Wade Barrett; Randy Orton reclaiming the world title; Cena and Punk going to battle with Triple H as referee; and Del Rio going home as the undisputed WWE Champion, with assistance from Kevin Nash.
Although Alberto lost the opening match of the event in a six-man tag match consisting of Rey Mysterio, John Morrison and Kofi Kingston, Del Rio and R-Truth went home with gold.
This is not much of a shock to me, as WWE is going to be touring Mexico this fall, were Del Rio has huge appeal.
But who will he be feuding with?
Looks like CM Punk will be busy as he has to deal with Kevin Nash and whoever else is behind this “screw job!”
The likely candidate will be John Cena, as this feud was originally planned for this year’s SummerSlam event, which is not that bad of a feud.
As a possible Cena and Del Rio feud develops, we can see Punk go to battle vs. Management, which is the Triple H regime.
Something tells me Triple H or Stephanie McMahon Helmsley had something to do with Kevin Nash attacking CM Punk. As Triple H seemed to be confused during the Nash incident, this leads to speculation that maybe someone else is pulling the strings—Vince McMahon, maybe?
But as of right now. we don’t know; this makes the upcoming Raw so intriguing and anticipated.
Although CM Punk is not WWE champion, you have to love the current situation.
Kevin Nash’s involvement leads to a bigger storyline and bigger developments.
Also at the end of the day, Cena is not the champion, which is a good thing. It’s nice to see someone new with the title.
The way WWE has been ending PPV’s as of late is a plus; it draws more attention to Raw, which will lead to people tuning in.
This is a Raw we all should not miss, as more pieces to the puzzle will take place.
Also, anything can happen.
