With Hell in a Cell settling many ongoing feuds, and John Cena off on a mysterious vacation, the door was wide open for everyone to step up on Raw. Conveniently, Seth Rollins needed a new #1 Contender to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, so the entire evening was given over to a series of matches designed to determine his next opponent. With everything on the line, a wide array of Superstars brought their “A” games in an attempt to earn their way into the main event of Survivor Series. Also, Bray Wyatt needed to explain exactly where he put The Undertaker after carrying him off last night. Yes, a lot of things happened on Raw this week, and here’s a list of the most important ones!
10. The Authority Likes Seth Again
You could probably be forgiven for thinking that, despite being their hand-picked Champion, The Authority didn’t particularly care for Seth Rollins. For months, they’ve done nothing but yell at him, dismiss his concerns that their Director of Operations might be trying to kill him, and set him up in seemingly impossible title defenses. But it was all a test, you see, and by remaining champion after facing a gauntlet involving Randy Orton, Brock Lesnar, John Cena, and (sigh) Kane, Seth has finally won their respect and admiration. You know, unlike the other times where they only pretended to like and respect him. Yes, it turns out, this was the plan all along, and Seth Rollins really is The Man, the chosen one of The Authority, and has their full support. For this week, at least, because it’s possible they may not be so supportive once Seth starts complaining about who he has to face at Survivor Series. But first, of course, they have to determine just who that is going to be.
