WWE Raw Spoilers, Preview for August 17, 2015: Brock Lesnar, Undertaker Confirmed Tonight, Live
The WWE is in Brock Lesnar's territory of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and fittingly, he and The Undertaker will be live in the same arena on Monday night.
With less than a week for "WWE SummerSlam" from Brooklyn, New York, the WWE is promoting the biggest event of the summer with their main eventers -- Lesnar and The Undertaker -- having a confrontation. The last time the two were in the same arena, it was July 20, and a brawl occurred throughout that show's arena. The Authority, namely Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have attempted to ensure both WWE Superstars don't get physical, so expect plenty of security and WWE Superstars to be on guard.
United States Champion John Cena finally resurfaced on WWE programming last Tuesday on "Tough Enough" after WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins legitimately broke his nose. Rollins challenged Cena for a title-for-title match at "SummerSlam," and the United States Champion accepted. With Monday being the last show before Sunday's pay-per-view event, Cena is more than likely set to appear at "Raw."
The "Divas Revolution" continues on as Team B.A.D., Team PCB and Team Bella are set to compete in a three-team elimination match at "SummerSlam." On Monday night, fans will see which team gets the upper hand as it will be an indication of which team will be victorious. Usually, the WWE Superstar with the upper-hand at "Raw" would lose at the following pay-per-view event. With the elimination match, Nikki Bella's WWE Divas Championship will not be on the line -- for now.
With Intercontinental Champion Ryback returning from injury, his feud against Big Show and The Miz lives on. Miz has done a lot, promotion-wise, but it's now time for some physicality in the ring before Sunday's show.
The physicality has been happening with the WWE Tag Team Championship picture, as The New Day is gaining momentum, which could damper current champions The Prime Time Players.
Another tag-team match is Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns against Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper. Expect either another singles match with any combination of the four aforementioned names or a six-man tag match that may include Randy Orton and Sheamus.
It was expected that a mixed tag-team match would occur between Rusev and Summer Rae against Lana and Dolph Ziggler at "SummerSlam." Lana, however, said Ziggler would return after Sunday's show. Regardless, Lana is expected to avenge herself after Summer Rae attacked her last week.
Finally, Cesaro and Kevin Owens are still feuding, and while this is on the midcard at "SummerSlam," it has strong potential to steal the show.
"Monday Night Raw" airs weekly at 8 p.m. ET on the USA Network.
