When SmackDown Live invaded Monday Night Raw earlier this week, it truly kicked off the war between the two brands that is going to culminate at Survivor Series on November 19.

The vast majority of the SD Live locker room - a real mixture of babyfaces and heels - went on a warpath through the backstage area and took out numerous Raw superstars, including Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.

Kurt Angle was forced to watch as the Blue Brand destroyed their red counterparts and Shane McMahon then sent him an ominous message in the ring to close the broadcast.

Raw was 'under siege'.

Naturally, the anticipation was high was SmackDown the following night. Surely Raw would retaliate and viewers could expect to see several unusual appearances on the Tuesday night product, right?

Wrong. Despite a striking video package at the beginning of the show and teases throughout about the angle, Raw failed to show up in any kind of way.

Quite rightly so, fans were upset that the WWE had promoted the angle so prominently only for there to be zero developments.

So, why didn't Raw invade? Fans on Twitter seem to have a fairly logical idea.

Of course, the Raw brand's Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view was hampered with a viral infection widely believed to be the mumps on Sunday.

That meant that Roman Reigns, along with Bray Wyatt, were unable to compete in their high profile bouts and they shall be missing for a while longer.

Fans believe that until Roman is back, Raw won't invade SD Live and they will tease the prospect instead. Here are some of their tweets:

Of course, it would be a triumphant return for the Big Dog and you can just imagine the kind of pop The Shield would get for taking on SD Live.

Furthermore, it actually makes sense from a storyline perspective. Wouldn't Angle want to strike back with his very best?

Both shows have three weeks of television to go before the PPV event, so don't be surprised if Raw drags out it's attack.
