5 Burning Issues For WWE Raw Tonight (Oct 9)

Will Paige be Sister Abigail?


Affording SmackDown Live! a rare night of glory, WWE delivered a turn, a title change and two terrifying tumbles in their caged Hell In A Cell pay-per-view bookends. The stipulation has taken a kicking since the structure became the subject (and often albatross) of its own supercard. However, with contests that actually warranted the scorched earth ending only the 'Devil's Playground' can afford, the show offered powerful conclusions to stories ahead of a bleak midwinter on the blue brand.

Before the bloated bigger brother gets too antsy though, attention must now return back to Monday Night Raw. In Tables, Ladders and Chairs, the red brand has a stuntshow of its own to promote and with two weeks away, a reunion with implications just as seismic as those between Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens seems almost nailed on.

Last week's episode went off the air not with Enzo Amoré's world class desecration of the Cruiserweight Division but a silent locker room reconciliation of Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. Having taken separate beatings from The Miz and The Bar on the show, the three brought to an end weeks of speculative teases with knowing glances about their shared plight. Will this be the week they make it official?

Elsewhere, we're due to see a family member in the form of an infamous sister. But will Bray Wyatt's latest manifestation take the form of a former Women's Champion? Turn the Paige...
