It looks like tonight’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw will feature a big angle to set up a big match at the Evolution pay-per-view.
Several weeks ago, Dave Meltzer broke the news that the plan for Evolution is for Ronda Rousey to defend the Raw Women’s Championship against Nikki Bella, presumably in the main event of the show.
If you were paying close attention at Super Show-Down, there were subtle teases of a heel turn for Bella when she insisted to start the match on Saturday and Brie and Nikki chose not to tag Rousey until there was no other option because Brie was taken out at ringside.
In recent weeks, WWE has been telling the announcers to hype the Bella Twins as “legendary” in preparation for Nikki’s feud with Rousey. Last week in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was noted that an angle would take place either at Super Show-Down or Raw.
Well, it looks like tonight is the night because the WWE.com preview asks what is next for Rousey now that she and The Bella Twins have taken care of The Riott Squad.
WWE appears to be embracing the fan negativity towards the Bella Twins and that will play a part in the feud with Rousey.
