For the first time in history, WWE, short for "Walk With Elias", presented Monday Night RAW on Christmas. A sold-out arena in Chicago, which played the part of a perfect host, led to an engaging RAW from top to bottom.

Two surprising championship match-ups along with a host of other segments made the show memorable. John Cena, making his umpteenth return to WWE, kicked off the show in style. One of biggest revelations of 2017, Elias, went toe-to-toe with Cena, which helped his tremendous push.

We look at five major talking points from Monday Night RAW this week.


#5: Walking with Elias(W.W.E) is great!

Elias transcended onto the main roster in April, and was booked perfectly from day one. He made a name for himself back in NXT, shining out as one of the true heels on the roster. Professional Wrestling today lacks true heels, a superstar whose personality is completely hateful.

Elias has stood out as a perfect mid-card heel in the recent months and hence WWE's decision to give him a rub alongside the top superstars is a great decision. Interuppting Cena's promo and handling the ruckus crowd of Chicago with ease, Elias demonstrated why he is destined to become a future main-eventer.

Cena won their impromptu matchup with his "five moves of doom", but it doesn't take away the spotlight from a new star in WWE.
