5 Biggest Questions Heading Into RAW

With only two weeks remaining before the 2016 Survivor Series, the WWE's flaghship program lands in Glasgow, Scotland to pre-tape the November 7th edition of Monday Night RAW. After last week's heated confrontation between Goldberg and Paul Heyman, you can bet Brock Lesnar will be looking for retribution. And by retribution, I, of course, mean a threatening video package, as neither Lesnar or Goldberg will be live on hand for tonight's episode.
Don't let the untimely absence of the two men in the Survivor Series main event spoil your evening, as there are still many big questions to be answered in tonight's RAW!
1. Who will be the final member of Team RAW?
Only one spot remains in the 10 man elimination tag team match between team RAW & team Smackdown. Team RAW currently consists of Kevin Owens, Roman Reigns, Chris Jericho, and Braun Strowman, while the blue brand will go to battle with Dean Ambrose, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, Baron Corbin and A.J. Styles.
Seth Rollins seems the obvious choice, but last week an allegedly leaked photo appeared to show Sami Zayn taking the final spot. Was his inclusion on team red a spoiler or just a red herring?

2. Will Seth and Roman get the band back together?
At the end of last week's RAW we saw the possible beginning of a reconciliation between former Shield brothers Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. Now that they share the common goal of ridding RAW of those pesky Canadians BFFs, team JeriKO, a reunion seems inevitable.
Personally, I'd much rather see the WWE hold off on a Shield reunion until an obstacle larger than Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens presented itself; perhaps one including the man who cost them both the Universal Championship, Triple H.

3. Who's next for the queen?
How will the WWE keep the Women's division momentum moving forward with Sasha Banks out of the title picture? Bayley seemed like the obvious choice for Charlotte's next challenger until she spent last Monday night taking a 3 second nap underneath Nia Jax's massive Samoan Drop (Yes, all Samoans are legally required to use the Samoan Drop).
Will the focus remain on filling out Charlotte's women's Survivor Series team or will a new challenger emerge?prevnext
4. What will become of the Cruiserweights on RAW?
Last week it was announced that the Cruiserweights will be featured on 205 Live; a one hour, Cruiserweight only show airing Tuesday nights after Smackdown on the WWE Network. What does this mean for the future of the division? Will they have to pull double duty by wrestling meaningless 6 man tag matches on Mondays before moving into their real programs on Tuesdays? Either way, the added bonus of Mauro Ranallo and Corey Graves calling the action will make 205 Live must see TV.
Now that they have their own show, how should the Cruiserweights be featured on RAW?prevnext
5. Who will answer Dolph Ziggler's challenge?
One of the more interesting developments to come out of last week's Smackdown Live was Dolph Ziggler's Intercontinental Survivor Series challenge to the RAW roster. Which red brand superstar will step up to answer the call?
After failing to crush Goldberg, Rusev appears to have an opening in his schedule, but it seems too soon to relive the Ziggler-Rusev feud that ate up the majority of 2015. Cesaro and Sheamus appear to be too wrapped in the tag division to be considered. Could it finally be time to give Neville, the man that gravity (and creative) forgot, a shot at stealing the show from the showstealer?
