The WWE will return to basic cable Monday night after its explosive “Survivor Series” pay-per-view event on Sunday that saw Team Cena take down Team Authority for control of the company. Meanwhile, a fan favorite joined the ranks of athletes in the WWE for the very first time.
“Survivor Series” was home to a bevy of major events in the wrestling community. In addition to the main event’s drama, things heated up even more between rivals Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt. During Sunday’s broadcast, it was announced that the two would meet again in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match at the pay-per-view event in December, according to the five-point preview of Monday's event on the WWE website. With plenty of time before then and an already intense rivalry boiling over, there’s no telling what the two have in store for each other leading up to their next bout.
Fans can also expect more from Nikki and Brie Bella. Tonight is the last night that Brie must serve as her sibling’s personal assistant following the loss of a bet. Now that Nikki has won the Divas Championship, who knows how she’ll treat her sister, now free.
The “Survivor Series” main event saw two big surprises. The first occurred early on in the match when Big Show betrayed his team and knocked out John Cena before leaving the arena in the middle of the match. Although things worked out for his team, there’s no doubt that Cena will make sure that Big Show answers for his actions, possibly during Monday night’s live show on USA Network.
Big Show’s team flipping didn’t matter thanks to some quick intervention from WCW star Sting, who entered the WWE ring for the first time ever on Sunday. Now, the question on everyone’s mind is whether the famed wrestler will be joining the WWE or if he was just there to administer justice at the eleventh hour of “Survivor Series 2014.”
Following guest-host Grumpy Cat from last week, Monday’s “RAW” will be hosted by comedian Larry the Cable Guy. The 51-year-old actor will be on hand to promote his holiday movie “Jingle All The Way 2,” which will be available on Blu-ray and Digital HD Dec. 2. The film is co-produced b WWE Studios president Michael Luisi, which explains the former Blue Collar Comic’s hosting gig. Joining him in the film, and on tonight’s “RAW,” will be Santino Marella, returning to the ring from retirement, according to Wrestlezone.
“Monday Night RAW” airs Nov. 24 at 8 p.m. ET on USA Network.
