WWE Raw: What's next for Paige, The Shield, Cesaro, John Cena and Rob Van Dam?

The red brand rolls into Alabama with plenty of questions...

Paige became Divas Champion last Monday. What will she encounter this week?

Monday Night Raw should give a good indication of where a host of WWE Superstars are headed.

In the wake of WrestleMania XXX - an event at which The Undertaker's legendary winning streak was shattered by Brock Lesnar and Daniel Bryan became WWE World Heavyweight Champion - a myriad of the company's new breed made an impact.

Cesaro recruited Paul Heyman as his advocate, Alexander Rusev destroyed Zack Ryder and Sin Cara, Paige became Divas Champion, Bad News Barrett won twice and The Shield ran roughshod over Triple H, Batista, Randy Orton and Kane.

The red brand rolls into Birmingham, Alabama tonight with the aforementioned grapplers eager to maintain their upward momentum, but their adversaries are likely to try and knock them down a peg or two...

THE SHIELD - Dean Ambrose, Seth Rolllins and Roman Reigns annihilated Triple H and his cronies on Raw, beat The Wyatt Family on Main Event, and then pummelled Kane with a triple powerbomb on Smackdown. Quite a week, then, but will they face punishment in the Yellowhammer State?

CESARO - Things are going exceedingly well for the now Heyman-managed Swiss Superman - his win in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at 'Mania was followed by Neutralizing Big Show on Smackdown - but will former cohorts Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter look to stall his progress?

PAIGE - The Norwich-born star stunned the WWE Universe last Monday by defeating AJ Lee and pinching the Black Widow's sought-after Divas strap. You can be sure that Lee will be on the warpath in Birmingham, but will any other fighting females be targeting the 21-year-old Briton?

JOHN CENA - The Cenation Leader is not a new face by any means - he made his WWE debut in 2002 - but he has a spring in his step after conquering Bray Wyatt at 'Mania. However, the Eater of Worlds has vowed to go 'extreme' in order to draw out Cena's bad side. Will he do it on Raw?

RVD - The Whole Dam Show is another WWE veteran and marked his return to action after a six-month hiatus with a pair of victories over Damien Sandow. Van Dam was unable to seize gold during his previous WWE run, so does he have his eye on nabbing a garland this time around?

For answers to those questions and a whole lot more, watch WWE Raw, 1am, Monday (Tuesday), Sky Sports 3 or catch the repeat at 10.30pm on Thursday on Sky Sports 2.
