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

Payback was a pay-per-view that was met with mixed reactions from the WWE Universe, but now that it's in the past, we have the Elimination Chamber PPV to look forward to in just two weeks.

One of the big stories coming out of Payback is the potential breakup of Lana and Rusev. The bombshell manager was told to leave by the Bulgarian Brute after she claimed he had quit in his native tongue. We should find out more Monday.

According to James Wortman of WWE.com, three titles will be defended on Raw. Naomi will challenge Nikki Bella for the Divas Championship, Tyson Kidd and Cesaro will get another shot at the tag titles and John Cena will hold his weekly open challenge for the United States Championship.

We should also see Seth Rollins celebrate his victory from Payback, Kane deal with more issues with The Authority and some hype for NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable.

Who will be included in the Intercontinental Championship match that will take place inside the Elimination Chamber?

How will the tag title Elimination Chamber match work?

Who will step up and challenge John Cena for the U.S. title?

Can Kidd and Cesaro get revenge after being cheated at Payback?

And lastly, will any NXT favorites appear to advertise TakeOver: Unstoppable?

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