It seems that most WWE fans are still recovering from SummerSlam, but already, we're fast approaching the next big pay-per-view. 

On September 16, Hell in a Cell returns - and this week's episode of Monday Night RAW set up another huge match for that event. 

A TITLE DEFENSE 

It will come as no surprise that Roman Reigns will make his next Universal Championship defense against Braun Strowman. 

"The Monster" holds the Money in the Bank briefcase - but rather than cashing in when Roman's back is turned - as most would do, Braun's scheduled his title match. 

It will take place inside the cell, which is perhaps a smart move, considering the cage lowers any chance of The Shield interfering to help Reigns hold onto his belt. 

But Hell in a Cell isn't the only big PPV on the horizon. 

BUILDING FOR EVOLUTION 

In late October - WWE's first ever all-women's event will be held in New York, as the Evolution PPV debuts. 

Of course, this is likely going to be one of the promotions biggest shows of the year - and rightly so. That means though, that attention has already turned past Hell in a Cell. 

Evolution will be WWE's first ever all women's PPV

In fact, this week's RAW was used to build a match on the Evolution card - and the show, which aired from Toronto, featured a huge return. 

A LEGEND RETURNS 

Midway through RAW, Elias came out with his guitar, played a little song and began to insult the city that WWE were broadcasting from. Nothing new there, of course. 

But this time, he didn't get away with it, because he was swiftly interrupted by Hall of Famer and hometown hero, Trish Stratus.

The seven-time women's champion and former "Diva of the Decade" received a huge pop from the crowd as she plugged her Evolution match against Alexa Bliss, before decking Elias. 

Stratus wasn't done there though, as she staying ringside for Natalya's match with Alicia Fox, before aligning herself with Evolution headliner Ronda Rousey. 

It was a pretty triumphant return for "Canada's Greatest Export" - and it will be interesting to see how involved she will be in the build-up to Evolution in October.
