It's the Raw after WrestleMania, the best night of the year usually. Will things be the same this year? Let's look ahead at just what might go down tonight.

The Crowd

Each it's customary that before heading home all the Europeans that have made the trip over for WrestleMania go to Raw the next night and throw a bit of a party for themselves. Celebrate being wrestling fans and just have a jolly good time, no matter what is wheeled out in front of them. Tonight, will surely be no different. Expect loud chants, mexican waves and singing along with entrance music, just because they can.

New World Heavyweight Champion

There's a new sheriff in town and he just so happens to be The Authority's Golden Boy Seth Rollins who claimed the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at the epic climax of last night's WrestleMania. Will Brock Lesnar be there looking to gain revenge, after losing his title without being pinned? What about Roman Reigns? He had his WrestleMania moment stolen from him by Rollins. There's even Randy Orton, who defeated Rollins earlier in the night, I'd expect things to get heated quickly at the start of Raw.

New IC and United States Champions

Daniel Bryan and John Cena claimed new championship gold at Mania, titles further down the pecking order than they are used. How will the new champs go about re-building the presitge of their newly captured straps? Will Bad News Barrett and Rusev be gunning to get their titles back? How about Dolph Ziggler who came just inches from winning the Intercontinental Championship? The middle of the card has been shaken up by these title changes and having such popular guys holding these belts and keeping them with strong, interesting storylines can only be good for the straps going forward.


The night of Mania is also famous for debuting new superstars. Could we see anyone from NXT make the step up tonight? Adrian Neville? Sami Zayn? Charlotte? If we see these superstars make their full main roster debuts, where will they slot into the landscape? Straight into a feud? Or a slow build against jobbers and the like? I'd much prefer straight into a feud, as it's a quicker way of getting to know what a wrestler can really do in the ring and will allow those fans who don't watch NXT to climatise to the characters and in-ring skillsets.

Other Mania Fallout

Will The Authority be looking for blood after their clash with The Rock and Ronda Rousey? How will Bray Wyatt react to his loss to the Undertaker at WrestleMania? What next for those unsuccessful in the Intercontinental Championship? Who will step up to challenge Tyson Kidd and Cesaro for the Tag Titles? Will Miz and Mizdow get to go at each other once again? Will Big Show knock some people the fuck out to celebrate his battle royal win?

All these questions and more will be answered tonight on Raw. And I'll miss them all, because I'll be finishing off this 24 hour challenge! Yikes.
