5 interesting things that could happen on Raw & SmackDown this week
Since the Money in the Bank pay-per-view, a lot has happened in the WWE. Within this week, we have seen many surprises and unexpected things happen which have changed the course of the two main brands.
Mick Foley revealed the new 24/7 Championship, on Raw which has already switched hands thrice, and can be defended on all brands of WWE including NXT and NXT UK.
Apart from that, there is news that our new United States Champion is suffering from an injury which could result in him in possibly relinquishing his title.
The Money in the Bank briefcase winner has already threatened both Kofi Kingston and Seth Rollins, and we will likely find out on Monday who will be the victim of The Beast’s wrath.
Similarly, Becky Lynch will also be looking for a new challenger for her Raw Women’s Championship after Lacey Evans failed to cash in on her big chance.
In this article, we will look at the 5 interesting and exciting things which can happen on the Raw and SmackDown episodes this week.
#5 Triple H & Randy Orton
Since we are heading to Saudi Arabia with WWE again, we are expecting to see some of the biggest clashes in WWE history take place once again to entertain the Saudi crowd, while new clashes will also emerge.
One of the main matches set for the event is between Triple H and Randy Orton. Just like we watched Batista and Triple H tear it down one last time at WrestleMania 35, and Triple H and The Undertaker do so last year, we will witness another great rivalry possibly reach its final chapter.
The match was unceremoniously scheduled on May 13, and a promo aired during the May 21 episode of SmackDown, recapping the two's various rivalries that originally began in 2004.
What’s been missing between the two men is some great promo build-up for the match. Triple H is one of the greatest talkers in WWE and did a great job building his previous two iconic matches. WWE should take advantage of this and use Orton and Triple H properly to build the match rather than just rely on videos.
This match has the potential to bring in a few more viewers for the event, and therefore WWE should not overlook it. Will we watch the legendary Triple H come out on Raw this week to deliver a warning to The Legend Killer? We hope to see the two Evolution teammates square off at least twice before the big match!
