*OFFICIAL* Raw Discussion Thread: 16th October 2017

The Shield is back to dole out their brand of justice on Raw. However, by preventing Braun Strowman from mauling Matt Hardy last Monday night — driving the behemoth through the announce table with a Triple Powerbomb during the attack — they’ve earned an enemy in The Monster Among Men.

Following that altercation, Strowman joined Intercontinental Champion The Miz, Cesaro & Sheamus in their Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match at WWE TLC, making the anticipated bout a 4-on-3 affair. Additionally, Strowman was placed in a Steel Cage Match against Roman Reigns on the final Raw before WWE TLC, bringing a new chapter to one of the most brutal rivalries of The New Era.

The last time Strowman entered a steel cage, he threw Big Show through the structure and put the giant on the shelf. Can the cage contain the carnage that awaits when Reigns and Strowman collide once more? Moreover, can Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose, Miz, Cesaro and Sheamus resist somehow getting involved?

Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins may have gotten the band back together with Roman Reigns to re-form The Shield, but the duo still has unfinished business as the Raw Tag Team Champions. As revealed in a breaking news report, Ambrose & Rollins will defend their titles once again against Cesaro & Sheamus, who are also part of the four-man squad that will battle The Hounds of Justice this Sunday at WWE TLC. Suffice it to say, if The Bar manages to reclaim the Tag Team Titles, the complexion of the contest this Sunday might be very different indeed.

After speculation as to whether or not the mysterious Sister Abigail was indeed among the living, Bray Wyatt formally introduced Finn Bálor to the otherworldly entity in an unnerving meeting last Monday night.

“Bray may have unleashed something awful,” Bálor told Renee Young after the encounter. “When she spoke, I heard her words echo through my head. I felt a shiver up and down my spine. I felt pure evil. But I also felt that now I know what I have to do.”

Having already defeated Wyatt as The Demon and as a man, how will Bálor deal with The Eater of Worlds’ latest threat?

Emma finally earned the spotlight she so craves last Monday night when she won a Fatal 5-Way Elimination Match to become Asuka’s opponent at WWE TLC.

The Empress of Tomorrow was undefeated as NXT Women’s Champion, holding the title for a record-shattering 523 days before vacating it. Now that Asuka has come to Raw, will she remain unbeatable, or will Emma start her own revolution by spoiling the Japanese Superstar’s Team Red debut?

Kalisto and Enzo Amore are still battling for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at WWE TLC as scheduled, but the bearer of the title going into the match has shifted somewhat thanks to Raw General Manager Kurt Angle.

Last Monday night — on WWE Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero’s birthday, no less — Kalisto’s opportunity came early, With a breathtaking Salida del Sol, The King of Flight put away The Certified G to capture the title and dedicate his win to Latino Heat’s memory.

Kalisto conquered Amore once again the following night on WWE Network’s 205 Live, successfully teaming with Mustafa Ali against Muscles Marinara and his sole ally, Ariya Daivari. Will the luchador continue to frustrate the newly former champion leading up to their WWE TLC rematch?

Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss clearly isn’t one to respect her elders, but after Mickie James’ Little Miss Bliss beatdown last week on Raw, she might need to start.

“The Goddess of WWE’s” mind games have lit a fire within the six-time Women’s Champion, making it seem all the more likely that she’ll add a seventh reign to her list of accolades when she battles Alexa at WWE TLC. Will the increasingly aggressive Mickie keep the arrogant titleholder on the defensive before their title showdown?

Don’t miss Raw, tonight!
