The RAW after Stomping Grounds was rather a good one, as the company was able to surprise the fans as the night went on. The first one came when The Undertaker came out to help Roman Reigns when the latter was being assaulted by the pairing of Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre.
This has now allowed WWE to make way for a tag match between the team of Roman Reigns and The Undertaker, and Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon.
Meanwhile, that wasn’t all, as Samoa Joe, who lost his US Title to Ricochet at Stomping Grounds, attacked Kofi Kingston after the WWE Champion beat Kevin Owens in a singles match, hinting towards a potential feud between the two for the most coveted Title the company has to offer.
There are some ways that WWE can go about it – and here are 5 of them…
#5 A filler
Ever since Kofi Kingston won the WWE Title at WrestleMania just a little over a couple of months ago, he has already had two feuds – one with Kevin Owens and the other with Dolph Ziggler.
The feud with Owens played out in just one PPV – Money in the Bank – while Kingston has defended his title in two PPVs against Dolph Ziggler.
And now, with Samoa Joe attacking the New Day Superstar, it seems as though the previous two feuds in which Kingston took part were nothing but fillers to make Kingston look stronger.
While both Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler are compelling as villains, Joe takes it another notch as he seems to have no limits that he won’t cross when hurting his rival. As a result, Joe could be used just until the Extreme Rules PPV where Kingston could beat him and take his place even higher.
