Tonight’s episode of WWE RAW takes place from the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California.
The only match confirmed for tonight’s show will see CM Punk vs. Paul Heyman. Punk’s SummerSlam opponent, Brock Lesnar, is scheduled to appear as well.
WWE.com’s 5-point preview is focusing on the following items:
* Expect Heyman to throw some kind of curveball to weaken Punk further before he steps into the ring with Lesnar on Sunday.
* Can Kane rediscover his old, sadistic ways in time for Sunday’s Ring of Fire match against Bray Waytt? And even if so, will it be too little, too late?
* Without a match at SummerSlam, The Shield could strike tonight.
* The next chapter in the ongoing John Cena vs. Daniel Bryan feud – and how Randy Orton and Vince McMahon will be involved.
* Triple H will continue to keep Vince McMahon out of the WWE Title match at SummerSlam.
The advertised dark match main event for the live crowd will see John Cena and CM Punk teaming up against The Shield.
