WWE RAW Five-Point Preview – 4th May 2015


WWE RAW Preview 4th May 2015

May the 4th be with you! No, this week’s Raw probably won’t be overrun with Jedi, droids or Wookiees for “Star Wars” Day, but with both Randy Orton and Roman Reigns locked in attack formation as they pursue Seth Rollins’ WWE World Heavyweight Championship, we’re guaranteed some out-of-this-world action. You won’t need to use the Force to see what awaits on Monday night — just check out our Raw Five-Point Preview.

WWE Has sent the Following Official Five-Point Preview for May 4, 2015

1. Who is the greater threat to Seth Rollins’ championship?

Thanks to WWE App voters (and Kane), Seth Rollins must now defend his WWE World
Heavyweight Championship against both Randy Orton and Roman Reigns in a Triple Threat Match at WWE Payback —a bout that puts his WrestleMania-launched title reign in serious jeopardy.

Yet, will it be The Viper or The Big Dog who proves to be Rollins’ more dominant threat in the lead-up to that May 17 confrontation on the award-winning WWE Network? How will Reigns and Orton deal with each other as this crowded WWE World Heavyweight Title clash approaches?

2. Will Dean Ambrose get retribution against The Authority?

Thursday night on SmackDown, WWE Director of Operations Kane denied Dean Ambrose victory against WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, and proceeded to join The Architect and J&J Security in assaulting The Lunatic Fringe after the bell. The attack was ultimately halted by Roman Reigns, who rushed to the aid of his brother against the Shield turncoat and his ruthless Authority associates.

Despite the assist from The Big Dog, Ambrose has no doubt been restless ever since that brawl on SmackDown, and likely has some plans to get even with The Authority on Raw. The WWE Universe won’t want to miss whatever the unstable Superstar does next.

3. Might we see a new United States Champion?

Even though a grueling “I Quit” Match against Rusev awaits at WWE Payback, John Cena remains a fighting champion and is determined to offer open challenges for his United States Championship each week. Last Monday night, Heath Slater answered the call, and were it not for The Super Athlete savagely kicking the wannabe rocker off the stage, Slater would have gotten the biggest opportunity of his career.

As The Hero of the Russian Federation prepares to give The Champ his first “I Quit” Match defeat on May 17, Cena will no doubt continue to be a fighting champion. Who will rise to the challenge and face Cena for the star-spangled prize this week?

4. Will Ryback feast on Bray Wyatt?

Twice last week, the sinister Bray Wyatt viciously assaulted Ryback, the latest target in The New Face of Fear’s macabre crusade. The attacks came after weeks of cryptic messages from Wyatt, hinting at the pitfalls of adoration and the futility of physical strength.

With The Eater of Worlds making clear his intention to dismantle The Big Guy, Ryback is now on the defensive — a rare predicament for the chiseled Superstar. Might we see Ryback retaliate against Wyatt on Raw?

5. What will be Barrett’s first act as King of the Ring?

It pains us to admit it, but Bad News Barrett’s new crown suits him. Tuesday night, live on the award-winning WWE Network, Barrett defeated Neville in the final round of the 2015 King of the Ring Tournament, earning an accolade shared by such ring greats as Bret Hart, Harley Race, Brock Lesnar and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.

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