WWE Raw Spoilers, Preview for July 27, 2015: First Live Show Since Hulk Hogan's Firing; Lesnar vs. Undertaker Continues
"WWE Monday Night Raw" will broadcast from Oklahoma City, and it is the first live show since the company terminated Hulk Hogan's contract following racial slurs leaked online.
The main focus of Monday's show will not be Hogan, the WWE does not want that kind of publicity as the company moves toward "SummerSlam," their second-biggest event of the year following "WrestleMania."
While the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is in the hands of a full-time WWE superstar, the real focus will be on Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker. Lesnar and Undertaker brawled last Monday, which generated plenty of buzz including more than 1-million views on WWE's YouTube page. Paul Heyman will appear on the show, but the question will be if either Lesnar or Undertaker will appear given their consistent limited appearances during the year.
With the WWE World Heavyweight Championship taking a backseat as the second main event to "SummerSlam," the feud between Rollins and United States Champion John Cena will strengthen. As much as there was disappointment with Cena challenging Rollins, thus ending his feud with Kevin Owens, perhaps this is the type of match and challenge Rollins needs to further elevate his reputation as WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Owens's second main-roster feud is officially Cesaro. The two exchanged words during the last "SmackDown" and will likely meet again on Monday night. These are two talented athletes, and they will definitely reach for the figurative brass ring.
The "Divas Revolution" continues as the three-teamed divas are still trying to be the top women of the roster. The Bella Twins defeated Team B.A.D. (Naomi and NXT Women's Champion Sasha Banks) last "SmackDown," but some of the divas have yet captured their own individual win such as Becky Lynch, Paige, Alicia Fox and Tamina Snuka. Fans could see a second-consecutive week of at least two divas matches instead the typical one match.
An mini-Wyatt-and-Shield feud has resurfaced. Former Shield members Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns have teamed to battle Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper. While Erick Rowan is still injured, Harper and Wyatt appears to reformed The Wyatt Family. It is not 100-percent clear how much time Rowan needs to heal, but the two-on-two match could be etched in stone for "SummerSlam."
In other feuds, Summer Rae will confront Lana for tackling her during last Monday's main event, Stardust and Neville will likely pinpoint the purpose of their feud and will Intercontinental Champion Ryback finally return following his staph infection?
"Monday Night Raw" airs weekly at 8 p.m. ET on the USA Network.
