Tonight’s edition of WWE RAW will feature a number of storyline developments as WWE begins the build towards Survivor Series. The most prominent unanswered question is the direction in which WWE plans to take the Orton/Flair hug from Taboo Tuesday. No definitive word is available yet, but as of early this weekend, there were debates for many different viewpoints; everything from beginning plans for a face turn to completely ignoring the hug and dismissing it as post-match “respect.”
For what it’s worth, Flair did work heel at the house shows.
WWE will continue the storyline with Edge and Benoit as tag champions. An eventual match between the two is certainly likely, although it is not known how WWE will play out the storyline with them as a tag team.
Another key question is the role of Gene Snitsky, who will need a new angle now that Kane is reportedly off to shoot his movie.
The WWE RAW preview also cites plans to continue the ’embarrassment’ associated with Eric Bischoff’s haircut.
