Monday Night Raw Preview – 1/9/12

Last week was the HUGE viral reveal of the return of Chris Jericho, and what is now being lauded as the best heel promo, and fastest heel turn ever. What is certain is that last week’s segment was the reveal portion only. This week the execution of the material will begin. The only way to judge the merit of Jericho’s return is to see how it is carried out over time. That will either engrave it into our minds forever, or simply let it fizzle out and move on to the next story line.

Tonight’s WWE RAW Supershow will take place from Corpus Christi, Texas at the American Bank Center. Kane vs. John Cena, WWE Champion CM Punk in action and a special appearance by Chris Jericho is being advertised by the arena. SmackDown stars advertised for tonight include Big Show, Mark Henry, Wade Barrett, Sheamus, Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes and World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan. – LOP

I almost just wrote “I’m excited to see Kane vs John Cena,” but I think I’ve said that before. We’ll probably see this match at the Royal Rumble. Tonight we’ll get an extra push in their feud together. Maybe Kane will attempt to swallow Evan Bourne, a kitten, and a large diet soda into an abyss, and Cena will save them all. Well, at least get the kitten and the soda to safety, John.

I expect so many names are being stuffed into these shows now because the Rumble is fast approaching and the crowd needs to get excited for a new entrant every two minutes. I personally cannot wait as it is my favorite PPV of the year.

I think we are on the cusp of a few fresh story lines being established, or the advancement of other angles. CM Punk and Johnny Ace will certainly have another spat this evening. Whether it leads to Laurinitis getting into his ring gear and running the ropes, I’m not sure.

There was talk that WWE will announce a name for the 2012 Hall of Fame class at tonight’s RAW Supershow from Baton Rouge. Tickets are going on sale soon and WWE is looking to announce a big draw to boost sales. Mexican legend Mil Mascaras was previously announced. LOP

Ok, let’s start wildly guessing and getting angry at each other when we disagree. Ready? Go!
