5 Talking Points From Monday Night RAW
Daniel Bryan VS McMahon Alliance
Daniel Bryan is in the midst of taking on the McMahons, alongside Randy Orton, now heel. This is just like the past, when Stone Cold Steve Austin fought against his boss, and the Corporation and won. With the McMahons recruiting Wade Barrett (as it appears) and The Shield, the odds are stacked against him. The McMahons forced Bryan to fight all the members of The Shield in a 3-on-1 Gauntlet Match on Monday Night RAW. Bryan managed to defeat Seth Rollins, but as he was about to make Dean Ambrose tap out to the No! Lock, Ronan Reigns interferred and caused a disqualification. Randy Orton and Triple H came out, and Randy hit Daniel with an RKO. During the show, and before this match, Triple H announced that he had bought Randy a new car out of his own pocket. Later during that night, also before the match, Daniel Bryan spraypainted the word "Yes" in orange on the car. To this, and I find this funny, Kofi Kingston tweeted that he shouldn't leave his cars around, referring to his rivalry with Randy in 2009. Also, Bryan called Triple H a corporate sellout, so there's that. What will happen? Will history repeat itself? Will Bryan overcome all obstacles and win the WWE Championship and become the face of the company.
AJ Lee & Total Diva Superstars
As a sort of promoting match for E! Network's popular TV Show Total Divas (Which I adore, by the way), Brie Bella fought against Natalya, with fellow Divas at ringside to aid them. Coco announced the match, too. AJ Lee came out and had a great package talking about how stupid the Divas were. Will this lead to a Divas Championship match? Will AJ Lee make an appearance in the Total Divas show?
Heyman VS Punk
Things heated up in this rivalry tonight. Curtis Axel was to fight CM Punk, with three stipulations for the WWE Universe to choose from as to what happens. The one with the most votes, over 80% was one that said that if Axel lost, Heyman would have to come back and face Punk in the ring. When Punk defeated Axel, Heyman tried to escape but wasn't allowed. Axel handcuffed Punk to the ropes, and was bashed with a Kendo Stick, leaving him bleeding. It was announced that at the Night Of Champions, Heyman and Axel will take on Punk in a handicap match.
RVD, Rodriguez, Del Rio & The World Title Picture
The rivalry between Alberto Del Rio, and his old ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez and his new friend Rob Van Dam made for a great match between the two (RVD VS Del Rio) with RVD coming out with the victory. It seems as though RVD will be taking on Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship at the Night Of Champions. The question is, will Rodriguez be loyal to RVD? Will he betray Van Dam and go back to Del Rio, like he has done countless times before? Will RVD capture the World title?
Night Of Champions
The Night Of Champions is around 20 days away, and it looks like the WWE is trying to arrange who will face who, so that the build-up makes for a better card. Fueds are heating up and people are getting big pops from the crowd.
