WWE Raw Sneak Peak: June 13, 2016
Less than one week before they battle for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Money in the Bank, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins will appear on a must-see edition of Dean Ambrose's chaotic talk show, "The Ambrose Asylum." What can the WWE Universe expect when all three former Shield members assemble in the ring at the same time? WWE.com has some ideas.
Will a Shield reunion prove disastrous?
Dean Ambrose seems to thrive in unpredictable scenarios, which is probably why the return of his talk show, “The Ambrose Asylum,” will bring together all three former members of The Shield when WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins appear as his guests.
The WWE Universe will no doubt delight in the fact that The Hounds of Justice will be assembled in the ring at the same time, but we somehow doubt the get-together is going to be anything but tense. Can The Lunatic Fringe keep the peace when “The Guy” and “The Man” come face-to-face six nights before their WWE World Heavyweight Title Match at WWE Money in the Bank? Will Ambrose join in on the mayhem if a brawl breaks out? After all, he never passes on an opportunity to deconstruct The Architect.
Is Kevin Owens the next Mr. Money in the Bank?
It’ll be every man for himself in this year’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, and perhaps no Superstar is better suited for the callous nature of this contest than Kevin Owens. On SmackDown, The Prizefighter turned against his own tag team partner, Alberto Del Rio, and still managed to pick up a victory over Cesaro & Sami Zayn.
This wasn’t exactly the most surprising betrayal Owens has ever pulled off, but it did prove to three of his opponents — and likely Dean Ambrose and Chris Jericho, who battled later that night — that he doesn’t need allies to walk away from WWE Money in the Bank with a guaranteed WWE World Heavyweight Championship opportunity at the time and place of his choosing.
Will Owens keep that momentum going on Raw, six nights before what is already being hailed as the greatest Money in the Bank pay-per-view in history?
New Era, new WWE Tag Team Champions?
The tag team division continues to heat up as WWE Money in the Bank approaches and, thanks to a suggestion from Teddy Long, the event will play host to a Fatal 4-Way Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship. Live in Las Vegas, The New Day will defend their titles against Enzo Amore & Big Cass, The Vaudevillains, and Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson.
It’s anyone’s guess who will leave Sin City with tag team gold around their waist, but something tells us that the three challenging tandems — all of whom emerged on the main roster recently — are preparing to make their mark on The New Era, and make The New Day old news.
Will Rusev and Titus O'Neil collide before Money in the Bank?
In an exclusive interview with Michael Cole, Titus O’Neil learned that at WWE Money in the Bank, he’ll receive the ultimate Father’s Day gift in the form of a United States Championship Match against Rusev. As O’Neil sets his sights on the star-spangled prize — which, if won, would be his first singles title victory in WWE — he’ll also get the opportunity to prove to The Super Athlete what Old Glory is all about.
If Rusev starts belittling Americans on Raw, six nights before their one-on-one title clash, expect O’Neil to leave The Bulgarian Brute red, white and bruised.
Should Cena keep his head on a swivel?
After The Club took The New Day’s Xavier Woods out of action during Raw’s six-man main event and used their numbers to their advantage, John Cena evened the odds and gave Luke Gallows an Attitude Adjustment for his troubles, while Karl Anderson ate a Big Ending from Big E.
Cena stood triumphant as Raw went off the air, but at WWE Money in the Bank, his one-on-one battle with AJ Styles will essentially be a 3-on-1 scenario as long as The Phenomenal One has Gallows & Anderson in his corner. Will The Club give Cena an early, painful preview of what he can expect next Sunday in Las Vegas?
