Super Moderator Going Backwards With WF
Tensions rise en route to Extreme opportunityWWE Raw preview, May 22, 2017: Will Bray Wyatt change the course of WWE's New Era?
Last week’s Raw proved that it will be every man for himself when Roman Reigns, Finn Bálor, Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt and Samoa Joe clash in an Extreme Rules Fatal 5-Way Match at WWE Extreme Rules for the right to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. The Eater of Worlds stood tall last Monday night, but will the sinister Wyatt maintain that momentum this week? WWE.com has some ideas.
Will Bayley come out swinging against Alexa Bliss?There will be no friends to be found when Roman Reigns, Finn Bálor, Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt and Samoa Joe clash at WWE Extreme Rules for the opportunity to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. With this anticipated and historic Extreme Rules Fatal 5-Way Match looming, it’s The Eater of Worlds who appears most dominant after concluding last week’s show by laying waste to both The Kingslayer and Samoa Joe with Sister Abigail.
Will Wyatt similarly stand tall in the five-man melee at WWE Extreme Rules, potentially changing the course of WWE’s New Era in the process? Stay tuned.
Ambrose faces bizarre stipulation at WWE Extreme RulesRaw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss claims that Bayley doesn’t have what it takes to get extreme, but “The Goddess of WWE” might be forced to change her tune when she defends her title against the former champion in a Kendo Stick on a Pole Match at WWE Extreme Rules on Sunday, June 4.
Bliss laid into Bayley both verbally and physically last week, nearly breaking a kendo stick across the back of the beloved Superstar in a sadistic assault that inspired Bayley to choose the bout’s stipulation to repay Little Miss Bliss in kind. But can Bayley wait until WWE Extreme Rules for some sweet, sweet kendo stick retribution?
Goldust shows his true colorsAfter The Miz attempted to steal the Intercontinental Championship with a low blow while the referee’s back was turned this past Monday night, Dean Ambrose retaliated by giving The A-Lister a swift kick to the co-stars. The attack gave Miz the disqualification victory, but not the championship.
Enraged by Ambrose’s below-the-belt attack — which was clearly an unintentional move by the fighting champion — The A-Lister demanded a rematch at WWE Extreme Rules, and if The Lunatic Fringe is disqualified in that bout, Miz will be awarded his seventh Intercontinental Title.
Ambrose is known for getting out of hand from time to time (he once stole a hot dog cart from Coney Island, after all), so this WWE Extreme Rules stipulation puts the champion in a perilous position. Will The Lunatic Fringe be able to keep his cool and his title?
After a string of unfortunate losses, including a misfired attempt at a career comeback in the No. 1 Contenders’ Tag Team Turmoil Match on the May 8 Raw, The Golden Truth is no more. Enraged and seemingly blaming his newly former partner for their inability to pick up victories in recent months, Goldust ruthlessly assaulted R-Truth this past Monday night, punctuating the brutality by spitting his longtime friend’s catchphrase, “That’s what’s up!,” back in his face.
Now that he’s severed his ties with R-Truth, what’s next for The Bizarre One? Will the former Intercontinental Champion address his heinous actions?
