There will be a tournament elimination at Survivor Series to determine the new champ, but who will participate? The Wyatt Family plans a eulogy on Raw for Kane and The Undertaker. Will Dolph Ziggler get payback against Mr. Selfie Stick, Tyler Breeze? And with Raw taking place in England, you know Paige will be making an appearance.

All this and more, tonight on Monday Night Raw.

We’ll have live updates and video highlights of all the action kicking off at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT.

HHH talks about Rollins’ knee injury, and who might compete for the vacant title. He then introduces Roman Reigns. … HHH asks Reigns if he wants to be the man, he just has to “be his man” aka his bitch. Reigns sarcastically asks if all he has to do is sellout? Roman tells HHH to “shove it”. HHH thanks him for reminding him why The Authority did not choose him as the future of the WWE over Rollins. “Welcome to the back of the line,” says HHH. Roman will now face Big Show.
