We are officially on the road to Royal Rumble, the on-ramp to WrestleMania. So we are on the frontage road on the highway to WrestleMania.
After an incredible Survivor Series, we have a lot to sort through. So let’s dive into some details you might have missed on Monday Night Raw.
Iyo Sky’s Neckbrace

It seems Iyo Sky was injured in the War Games match.
Rhea Ripley carrying Iyo Sky out of War Games is a vibe 😂

That is not surprising, considering how hard she went in the match.

Sami Zayn: The Ultimate Uce
Sami Zayn is officially a member of the Bloodline. Zayn proved himself and put his body on the line to prove his loyalty and help win the WarGames match for the most dominant faction in WWE.

But rumors are running that Zayn will soon be turning on the Bloodline and re-teaming with his long-time friend Kevin Owens to face off against the Usos for the tag titles at WrestleMania: Sunset Boulevard. The emotional moment between KO and Sami felt meant to build a fantastic payoff.
Sami Zayn with the Bloodline story was already so deep. Adding Kevin Owens into the mix just added so many new layers into this whole thing.

In the Vince times, Austin Theory’s failed MITB cash-in would have been the nail in the coffin. He wouldn’t have had the chance to build himself up and would probably be teamed up with American Alpha doing joke tag matches with R-Truth and Tozawa. But instead, we got a grown-up (but not mature) Theory. He, indeed, wasn’t humbled by the loss. Instead, we got a serious and deadly machine.

Theory looks to be locked in a feud with Rollins, and I wonder if the two will hold off on their meeting until WrestleMania. Now, that’s five months away, and a world can happen between now and then, but I think WWE can use that level of tension to build this into perhaps the night one main event.
Alexa Bliss Seems…Distracted.
With Alexa and Bray Wyatt’s returns, many fans thought it was only a matter of time before the two are reunited. Despite being on different brands, The Fiend, Uncle Howdy, or whatever dark passenger Wyatt is carrying is creeping up on Alexa Bliss.

The tease has gone on for a few weeks now, and Bliss seems more and more in her head. I don’t know if we will see a heel turn as much as Bliss returning to the fold as Wyatt’s muse.
