*OFFICIAL* Raw Discussion Thread: 8th May 2017

lthough The Miz and Maryse don’t want to admit it, the couple probably owes Samoa Joe and Bray Wyatt “thank you” cards and fruit baskets after what transpired last Monday night on Raw. During a chaotic and wildly unpredictable Intercontinental Championship No. 1 Contender’s Triple Threat Match, The Samoan Submission Machine laid out Seth Rollins while The Eater of Worlds took down Finn Bálor with Sister Abigail, essentially handing The A-Lister the victory and a guaranteed Intercontinental Championship opportunity against Dean Ambrose.

Benefitting from Joe and Wyatt’s heinous actions, The Miz is closing in on his seventh Intercontinental Title reign. When will the boastful “must-see” Superstar get his title bout? Also, will Rollins and Bálor attain retribution against their attackers? Such questions will be answered on Raw tonight.

Both Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman bear the wounds of battle following their brutal clash at WWE Payback, where The Monster Among Men defeated The Big Dog and continued the brutality in the locker room area.

Both rivals were noticeably absent last Monday, and Raw General Manager Kurt Angle has assured the WWE Universe that he is working with medical personnel and WWE officials on a proper course of action for Reigns and Strowman moving forward. What does their future hold? Find out tonight.

They don’t call Alexa Bliss “small but fierce” for nothing. Following a “coronation” this past Monday night that put the new Raw Women’s Champion on an all-too-literal pedestal, the self-proclaimed “Goddess of WWE” was victorious in an Eight-Woman Tag Team Match, scoring the victory for her team after raking the eyes of Bayley and pinning The Huggable One.

That win marked the second time in as many nights that Bliss had pinned Bayley — the first being at WWE Payback, where she defeated the fan-favorite Superstar to become the first competitor to win the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Titles. Will Bliss maintain her momentum in London, or will Bayley rebound against the new champion’s “Five Feet of Fury”?

Live on Raw in London, five teams will meet in a No. 1 Contenders’ Tag Team Turmoil Match for the right to challenge The Hardy Boyz for the Raw Tag Team Championship.

In addition to The Golden Truth, who were placed in the match last Monday, the teams of Enzo Amore & Big Cass, Heath Slater & Rhyno, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson and Cesaro & Sheamus will be part of the mayhem.

A Tag Team Turmoil Match is an elimination bout in which two teams begin battling in the ring, and once a team is defeated, another takes its place. The match continues until only one tandem is left standing.

All of the teams in this match have a lot to prove, and one can imagine Enzo & Cass will be looking to get a piece of the so-called “good brothers” after Gallows defeated Amore last Monday night. Meanwhile, The Swiss Cyborg and The Alabaster Gladiator will surely look to use their newfound aggression to pummel the opposition en route to another opportunity at Matt & Jeff Hardy’s Raw Tag Team Titles. Slater & Rhyno are hoping to become two-time tag team titleholders while Goldust & R-Truth’s “Golden Quest” officially begins tonight.

Don’t miss any of the action as Raw takes over London’s famous O2 Arena tonight!
