Tonight, on the With Spandex WWE Raw open discussion thread:

Making his first WWE appearance since his victory over Dean Ambrose at WrestleMania 32, Brock Lesnar returns to Raw to wreak havoc on anyone in his way. Who or what will The Beast Incarnate destroy en route to his clash with Randy Orton at SummerSlam? Plus, how will Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and Raw General Manager Mick Foley gain an edge over SmackDown Live this week? (via WWE.com)

Our five-point preview:

1. Last week’s Raw was extraordinarily good and exponentially better than Smackdown, so we’re gonna stay positive and hope that trend continues. As it stands now, Raw is what NXT would be like if it was Raw, and Smackdown is Raw Classic. Please stay.

2. Brock Lesnar is here, which is always a good thing, unless he’s just here to stand still while people talk near him. Even that’s probably better than zero Lesnar.

3. With Britt Baker and James Ellworth setting the pace last week, we’re hoping Raw has more comically wonderful slash terrible enhancement talent available. Let’s find someone with even LESS of a chin!

4. The best part of the split rosters is that we don’t have to worry about Randy Orton showing up and doing anything.

5. Sasha Banks is the new WWE Women’s Champion, so what do you say we trade Sin Cara for Becky Lynch and have another 20-minute women’s championship match?

As always, reply to your favorite comments from tonight’s open discussion thread with a +1 to nominate them for our top 10 comments of the week in tomorrow’s Best and Worst of Raw column. Enjoy the show!
