For the first time since the brand extension, WWE Raw’s portion of the SummerSlam card began to take shape, but not without leaving a few burning questions to address in the wake of the August 8 broadcast.

One, in particular, revolves around the face-to-face encounter between Raw general manager Mick Foley and his SmackDown peer Daniel Bryan. How could a segment so hyped over the last three days wind up being so inconsequential by the time Monday’s broadcast ended?

Another focuses on the brightest star of the show, Cesaro. After working hard-fought, incredibly physical matches, he appears no better off than he did before his stellar performances.

Finally, there was the escalation of the feud between Roman Reigns and Rusev. After a relatively weak start a week ago, the issues intensified and did so in a manner that had the desired effect for all involved.
