The torch has been passed. What's next?
The torch has been passed. What's next?

In many ways, the RAW after No Mercy almost feels like a brand new era. Especially after the RAW Talk which indicated that John Cena will work a significantly lighter schedule than usual, and the torch had been passed to Roman Reigns, for the time being.

Undoubtedly, we're far more excited for the aftermath of No Mercy than we were for the actual pay-per-view itself. We sense a sea of changes and are certain that the RAW after No Mercy should deliver in a big way indeed.

Here we speculate about 5 developments on the episode, that could make the show very interesting to watch for the entire WWE Universe. While none of them may happen, each of them may actually transpire and make the show a must-watch affair.

Also, if any of these changes were to occur, the landscape of WWE would be significantly changed.

#5- Samoa Joe returns from injury

Could the Samoan Submission Machine be returning from injury?
This is a return that will shake things up

The injury list for WWE has been growing by the day, really. Big Cass, Jeff Hardy and even Scott Dawson of The Revival are missing from the red brand. Samoa Joe had been injured at a Live Event, not very long ago.

From what we'd gathered, his injuries were not very serious...making us wonder if he could be on his way back to choke the entire locker room out. We sense two distinct possibilities if he were to return to the company, once again.

The first concerns his rivalry with Brock Lesnar. We never get tired of watching Brock Lesnar and Samoa Joe collide with each other inside the ring. From what we understand, Brock Lesnar will be missing time following his big win at No Mercy. Could an attack from Samoa Joe write him off TV for good?

The second could be a dream confrontation that we haven't been privy to, so far. A feud between Braun Strowman and Samoa Joe. Joe is one of the only two men on RAW who Roman Reigns has never beaten in a singles match(the other being Brock Lesnar). Two big monsters locking horns, and in the absence of the heavyweights, giving us a good program for TLC. This could be a very compelling program if booked right by WWE.
