WWE 'RAW' Spoilers & Rumors: Kevin Owens, Triple H Set To Address Universal Championship Controversy [POLL, VIDEO]
After a controversial ending to last week's show, "Monday Night RAW" should be very interesting this week.
The flagship show is set to emanate live from the Spring Center Arena in Kansas City, Mo. This episode will air just less than three weeks before Night of Champions, which takes place on Sept. 25 from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
Though no matches have been announced for the event, every title will be defended at Night of Champions. Here are five things to watch for this week on the Red Brand.
1) KO Mania
Kevin Owens defeated Big Cass, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins in a Fatal 4 Way elimintaion match to capture the WWE Universal Championship with a huge assist from a surprise returning Triple H last Monday. Owens and "The Game" are set to address the controversy surrounding the situation. It has yet to be determined who will face KO at Night of Champions, but rumors of a potential Triple Threat Match against either Rolins and Reigns or Chris Jericho and one of them has been rumored.
It officially begins tonight...https://t.co/8g0szzydE7

2) Game On
All eyes will be on "The Game" this week as both Rollins and Reigns will be seeking some revenge on him after he cost them the gold. Triple H also locked eyes with "RAW" general manager Mick Foley and commissioner Stephanie McMahon, which could lead to a power struggle between the entities on the Red Brand. Reigns' feud with Rusev seems far from over, so it's possible that Triple H and Rollins will be the focal point of the rivalry.
3) Match 3
The best-of-seven struggle between Cesaro and Sheamus is set to continue with Match 3 this week on "RAW." The "Celtic Warrior" has taken the first two bouts, scoring a victory on the SummerSlam pre-show last month and then notching another win on "RAW" last week. The "Swiss Superman" will look to avoid a 3-0 hole this week.
4) Women's Revolution
It's been a rough few weeks for the women of "RAW" as Paige got injured and was subsequently suspended 30 days for violating the WWE's wellness policy, while Sasha Banks is also on the mend, but could be back soonr than expected. The WWE was able to keep the division interesting by calling up Bayley from NXT. It seems the lovable Superstar is in line for a Women's Championship bout against Charlotte, which will lkely take place at Night of Champions.
5) Title Wave
With the Universal and Women's Championship scenes starting to get settled, the other two titles in the WWE need to be decided at Night of Champions. It appears The New Day's feud with The Club will continue into the event, while Rusev's rivalry with Reigns should lead to another match between them-- though Triple H's involvement last week puts that in question. Rusev missed last week's show likely as a way to sell his injuries and get set for his "second wedding" with Lana.
