The IC title may be on the line...
RAW will be held at the US Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona for the first show after John Cena left WWE. There will obviously be a heavy focus on Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan for the WWE title at Night of Champions next month.
CM Punk will fight WWE Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel. While the match is said to be non-title, there are rumors that the title may actually be on the line.
Tonight's show will also feature more from Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. Other talent set to appear include Alberto Del Rio, Rob Van Dam, The Shield, Mark Henry, Big Show, Ryback, The Wyatt Family, Dolph Ziggler, Big E. Langston, AJ Lee and Kaitlyn.
The dark match main event will be Punk vs. Axel and Paul Heyman in a handicap match, along with The Shield vs. Henry, Show and Van Dam in a Six-Man Tag Match.
