With just 3 weeks to go for Wrestlemania 28, the build to the matches on the grandest stage of them all is in full swing. This weeks Monday Night Raw Supershow will be held at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. Several big names like The Rock, The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels have been promoted to appear on the show.
The Rock Concert and John Cena Rap
The animosity between The Rock and John Cena is reaching an all time high as we get nearer and nearer to the Wrestlemania. This week both men are set to vent their feeling about each other in musical style as WWE has advertised a Rock Concert by The Rock and freestyle rap from John Cena. Will this musical war of words lead to physicality between these two volatile superstars? This is a must watch segment. The payoff of this this segment would be vital in the build towards the once in a generation match.
“The Most Electrifying Man in Entertainment’s insta-trending insults take on the Cenation leader’s home-spun rhymes in a Rock Concert and Rap, respectively.”
Shawn Michaels confronts The Undertaker
Just a week after revealing his role as the special guest referee in the ‘End of an Era’ Hell in a Cell match between The Undertaker and Triple H, ‘Heart Break Kid’ Shawn Michaels will make an appearance on Raw wherein he will confront the dead man. The Undertaker hasn’t been in the limelight for the past few weeks after Triple H accepted the rematch challenge. It will be interesting to see what the deadman has to say about the recent developments in his match. What will Shawn have in store for the Undertaker is the most intriguing question that will be answered on Raw.
Raw gets ‘Psych’ed
‘Psych’ star James Roday will make a one-off appearance on Raw this week, to plug the show featuring a guest appearance by the Miz, this week. Roday will be involved in a segment with The Miz. Incidentally, Raw takes place in the hometown of the Miz – Cleveland, Ohio. The Miz, who is really pissed off because of the fact that he still doesn’t have a spot at this years Wrestlemania, might be able to turn the tables on this weeks Raw. He is one a downhill freefall and desperately needs a lifeline and this weeks Raw may turn out to be the one.
The Best in the World debate between CM Punk and Chris Jericho expected to continue
Last week, we had a heated discussion between CM Punk and Chris Jericho over the Best in the World debate. Jericho got the better of Punk as he pinned him in the tag-team bout. But this rivalry may enter into the next phase this week. With three more weeks to go, it will be interesting to see how they build up this feud which has been watered down a little. We may get a contract signing between these two in the upcoming weeks. It would be interesting to see if they get into a war of words this week too.
Laurinaitis back as the General Manager
After a week, Big Johnny gets back to his Raw GM job. With the power struggle between him Teddy Long still not yet absolved, expect it to play out during the show. The impending announcement about the Wrestlemania match between Team Long and Team Laurinaitis can be expected on the show. What will be first on the agenda as Big Johnny returns to Raw?
Randy Orton and Kane
Ever since Kane attacked Randy Orton in his comeback match against Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton has been retaliating with RKO’s on Raw and Smackdown. With both men advertised for Raw, expect this rivalry to continue. It is likely that we will get the announcement of a Wrestlemania match between these two men on Raw, this week.
Smackdown Stars and Dark Match
Smackdown stars advertised for the show include Daniel Bryan, Sheamus, Randy Orton, and Big Show. A dark match featuring John Cena & C.M. Punk taking on the team of Chris Jericho & Kane has been advertised for the local crowd at Cleveland.
With plenty of Wrestlemania 28 implications, this weeks WWE Raw is a must watch. With the Rock is all set to electrify and The Phenom set to make an appearance, Raw promises to be a jam-packed action filled show. Don’t miss it because you’ll regret it.
