WWE RAW Preview – 30th November 2015


Even though Sheamus robbed Roman Reigns of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Survivor Series last week, The Big Dog is riding a wave of momentum leading up to his Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match with The Celtic Warrior at WWE TLC. Will Reigns once again deliver some steel justice to Sheamus and his allies, Rusev and King Barrett?

WWE.com has sent out the Following Five-Point Preview for Upcoming RAW on November 30, 2015

1. New extremes for Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns is always intense, but The Big Dog has taken his aggression up a notch since Survivor Series, where the opportunistic Sheamus used his Money in the Bank contract to rip Reigns’ title away from him in his moment of triumph. Now, per The Authority, Reigns will clash with The Celtic Warrior for the title in a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match at WWE TLC — a bout that seems to favor the challenger in ways neither Triple H nor Stephanie McMahon expected.

Sheamus certainly talked a big game on SmackDown, likening Reigns to a “walking, talking Adele song,” but those bold words came just days after The Big Dog made The Celtic Warrior, Rusev and King Barrett say “Hello” to a steel chair on Raw. Will Sheamus keep his distance this Monday night, as a determined Reigns looks to their high-stakes, career-threatening collision?

2. The Lunatic Champion?
On SmackDown, the wily Dean Ambrose conquered both Tyler Breeze and Dolph Ziggler to become No. 1 Contender to Kevin Owens’ Intercontinental Championship. That accomplishment clearly didn’t sit very well with the prizefighter, who walked away from the ready-to-brawl Lunatic Fringe at the end of the night.

With his defeat at the hands of Ambrose in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament fresh in his mind, Owens must be aware that his days as Intercontinental Champion could very well be numbered — a realization that might explain his reluctance to battle his unstable future challenger Thursday night. But what if Owens is simply waiting to fight on his own terms? Will Owens send a message to Ambrose on Raw?

3. Poor table manners
We don’t want to imagine what Thanksgiving is like in the Wyatt compound, but The Eater of Worlds and his cruel kin gorged themselves on destruction this past Thursday on SmackDown, where they destroyed D-Von Dudley and sent his brother Bubba Ray through a table — using The Dudley Boyz’ own pine-splintering pastime against them.

Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman have twice obliterated Dudleyville’s favorite sons since Survivor Series, but something tells us the macabre quartet is just getting started. What sinister plans do The Wyatt Family have for Raw?

4. Far from finished
After Paige accused Charlotte of cheating to retain her Divas Championship at Survivor Series, the raven-haired aggressor argued for a rematch against the titleholder on Raw — an intensely personal bout that ended in a double count-out when the action spilled outside the ring. Afterward, The Diva of Tomorrow vented her frustrations against her former friend by trapping Charlotte in the PTO atop the announce table, forcing the champion to scream out in agony.

Paige went on to steal a victory from Charlotte’s ally Becky Lynch on SmackDown, clearly sending a message to the Divas Champion. Will Charlotte attain retribution this week? Stay tuned.

5. Leftovers for The New Day?

Thanks to a little help from The Gobbledy Gooker, The Usos and The Lucha Dragons spoiled The New Day’s “fowl” Thanksgiving festivities on SmackDown, when Jey Uso disguised himself as the notorious turkey and cost the WWE Tag Team Champions a non-title match against Sin Cara & Kalisto. Then, after revealing himself as the feathered fiend, Jey took flight off the top rope — in the infamous costume — and hit a big splash on a helpless Xavier Woods. For the first time in 25 years, the WWE Universe was actually happy to see The Gobbledy Gooker in a WWE ring.

After suffering that humiliation, what’s The New Day’s next move? Are The Usos and The Lucha Dragons going to somehow parlay their Thanksgiving triumph into a WWE Tag Team Championship opportunity? If so, which team is more worthy of that honor? Expect more tag team chaos on Raw.

Don’t miss Raw at 8/7 C on USA Network, and be sure to tune in to Raw Pre-Show at 7:30 ET, only on the award-winning WWE Network.
