Before we get to those, let's take a look at the headline-makers of the day:
Fresh twist in Randy Orton vs Edge feud?
Edge vs Randy Orton has been pencilled in for WrestleMania 36 as per reports. The groundwork has been laid for it with the Viper getting eliminated by the Rated-R Superstar at the Royal Rumble.
It became clear on Monday Night RAW the very next night when Edge was taken out by Orton. The former member of the Evolution hit the returning Edge with an RKO and then a Con-Chair-To to rule Edge out for a long time.
Edge is now expected to return just before WrestleMania and WWE are planning to introduce Drew McIntyre in the buildup. The Scottish Psychopath, who is set to face Brock Lesnar at the Show of Shows, is set to be involved in a feud with the Viper next month.
How WWE uses McIntyre in the Edge vs Orton feud only time will tell.
