WWE is starting out the new year with an episode of Raw so let’s take a look at the show with a preview.
Unlike previous shows, WWE has had one week to build hype around this show as they have already announced several big matches.
Thus, it’s time to look ahead starting with tonight’s episode of Monday Night RAW.
Rey Mysterio vs. Andrade for United States Title and Viking Raiders defending the RAW Tag Team Titles against The Street Profits and The OC in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match are the bouts that have been confirmed.
We also have the return of WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, which marks his first appearance since Survivor Series. The belief is that we will find out who Lesnar will face in his next title defense as the top star on the RAW brand at the upcoming Royal Rumble pay-per-view event.
