Flair’s purpose is obvious. He continues to be Charlotte’s manager, training her a ways of The Dirtiest Player in a Game along a way.
Santino, though, doesn’t have a transparent trail to conduct down. Perhaps he’s usually around for comic service or to assist WWE with one of a product-placement segments.
Titus O’Neil might be removing his partner back. Darren Young hasn’t been around for weeks. That’s reportedly due to him traffic with a leg injury.

Build Toward Royal Rumble
The delayed retraction of Becky Lynch and Charlotte’s fondness stays a focal indicate of a Divas division. Each week, Charlotte bends a manners usually a bit more. That’s led to contention between a friends.
On final week’s SmackDown, Team B.A.D. released a beatdown on Lynch, an conflict that Charlotte didn’t mangle up. That’s certain to means additional issues between a teammates.
As Wortman wrote in his preview of Monday’s show, “It will be engaging to see if Becky and Charlotte will stay on a same page during Raw.”
Meanwhile, there is a brewing coterie on a men’s side, as well. The League of Nations continue to hit with Reigns and his crew.
Wortman hints during some-more of that to come. He wrote, “How will The Big Dog and his ‘family’—including The Usos and Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose—keep The League of Nations on a defensive this Monday night?”
Ambrose also has flourishing passion toward Kevin Owens. It’s not transparent how WWE will juggle that story and The Lunatic Fringe’s partial in a League of Nations feud. The same goes for The Usos clearly shutting in on a pretension shot opposite The New Day.
However those narratives unfold, Reigns is certain to be a centerpiece of a night.
He not usually has The League of Nations to contend with, nonetheless with McMahon back, he’s certain to have some piper-paying to do. Reigns harmed Triple H and cold-cocked McMahon, nonetheless has nonetheless to accept any discipline.

Monday’s Raw should answer a doubt of who is Reigns’ subsequent challenger. Either Sheamus isn’t finished with him or a champ moves on to a bone-fide conflict with The Authority, potentially environment adult Triple H vs. Reigns during a Royal Rumble.
The same goes for Cena and The New Day. Their paths for early 2016 are set to be forged.
