Following the conclusion of Clash at the Castle: Scotland, the focus now shifts towards the upcoming episodes of WWE RAW and SmackDown. The upcoming shows will feature the fallout from Saturday's events. WWE could also have a few major surprises for fans this week.

Apart from that, the company will kick off its build towards its next premium live event, Money in the Bank, in the coming week.

On that note, here are four bold predictions for WWE RAW and SmackDown this week:

#4. Jade Cargill turns on Bianca Belair

Jade Cargill and Bianca Belair lost their coveted gold to Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn on Saturday. However, this loss could result in the breakup of the babyface duo.

Jade Cargill could blame The EST of WWE for the loss against The Unholy Union before turning on her. She could launch a brutal attack on Bianca on the upcoming episode of WWE SmackDown to lay down the breadcrumbs for a massive clash down the line.

#3. Damian Priest gets replaced by Carlito in The Judgment Day on WWE RAW

RAW Superstar Damian Priest prevailed over Drew McIntyre on Saturday due to CM Punk's interference in the match. However, things may not end well for The Archer of Infamy on WWE RAW.

Given his feud with McIntyre seemingly reached its climax yesterday, the company could lay down the foundations for Priest's next feud on Monday night. WWE could reveal Finn Balor as Priest's next opponent by having him turn on his stablemate.

Given the creative team has been teasing the implosion of the dominant faction, this won't come as a surprise to many. Balor could manipulate the rest of The Judgment Day into kicking Priest out of the faction. The Demon could then have Carlito replace The Archer of Infamy in the faction.

#2. AJ Styles announces his retirement

AJ Styles once again failed to overcome Cody Rhodes as he succumbed to The American Nightmare after a grueling contest at Clash at the Castle. The Phenomenal One had his moments in the match. However, Cody managed to fight his way to a win.

After another demolishing defeat, which saw Styles yield out of fear, The Phenomenal One could decide to hang his boots for good. Styles could make an appearance on Friday's SmackDown to announce the same.

#1. Huge match announced for Money in the Bank

Cody Rhodes was attacked by The Bloodline following his win at Clash at the Castle: Scotland. This led to Randy Orton and Kevin Owens showing up to help The American Nightmare even the odds.

Given how things unfolded, the fans could be in for a massive tag match at Money in the Bank. The company could book Cody, Owens, and Orton in a 3-on-3 tag match against Solo Sikoa, Tama Tonga, and Tonga Loa at the upcoming premium live event.
