Ahead of an exciting night of WWE RAW action - here's a look at what you have to look forward to and what you need to watch out for:
After being ordered not to compete, by Mr McMahon and Stephanie, Triple H is set to ignore the demands of his wife and father-in-law and line-up opposite Curtis Axel. With uncertainty surrounding the fight, questions circle as to the potential repercussions both in and out of the ring for Triple H. Axel, coming off the back of a big winning streak, will head in as favourite should the rematch bout go ahead.
From out of nowhere, Axel has emerged from the WWE wilderness and scored two major wins over defending champion John Cena and Triple H. During last week’s Cena vs Axel match, Ryback interrupted and pushed Cena through a table. The week before, Ryback dismantled the champion in a sneak attack at the close of Raw.
It’s been a rough few weeks for Cena. This will be a chance to see whether or not he will finally get some retribution and gain momentum before WWE Payback.
World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler is one wrestler that will definitely be returning to action after being medically cleared to compete by WWE officials. The news broke on Friday’s SmackDown when the champion appeared via satellite following a match involving his No. 1 contender Alberto Del Rio. The pair will face-off at long last on tonight's episode.
Elsewhere, Divas Champion Kaitlyn will have her secret admirer revealed at long last tonight, after weeks of speculation. It remains to be seen how she will take the news and whether there will be any sparks between the pair - but for the rest of the WWE world, she remains well out of reach.
And finally, eyes will be pealed for an appearance from CM Punk ahead of his clash with Chris Jericho. Last week, the contract was signed for the WWE Payback match between the pair, but with Punk nowhere to be found, the deal was signed by best friend, confidante and strategist' Paul Heyman. The Second City Saint could be set to lay low until the fight itself, but where would be the fun in that?
