Monday Night Raw Preview 12/29/14

Happy almost New Year, marks! For the last episode of 2014, Monday Night Raw sweeps through the nation’s capitol for some hard-hitting, bone-crunching action! Pre-show notes:

  • The Ascension Debuts: The time has come! The longest-reigning NXT tag team champions are making their WWE debut tonight. The last time we saw Konnor and Viktor, they were on the losing end of a match against Finn Balor and Hideo Itami, but long-time NXT followers know that they are not to be trifled with. It remains to be seen whether they will keep their uber-serious personas from NXT, as their vignettes are certainly bordering camp overload.
  • Edge and Christian Host Raw: One of the greatest tag teams in WWE history hosts Raw the same night as the debut of the Ascension? Hopefully E&C acknowledge the new guys in a passing-of-the-torch-type of way. Even if not, it’s always great to see Edge and Christian back together.
  • Year End Surprises: With still roughly a month before the Royal Rumble, several WWE superstars will be looking to close out 2014 with a bang. Dolph Ziggler has had a great year, and the Dean Ambrose/Bray Wyatt feud seems to be hurtling towards a conclusion. Hopefully these characters will get some fresh direction, if not tonight, then in the new year.
  • Split Roster: It’s worth noting that WWE is also doing a live show in Richmond, VA as a part of WWE’s Holiday Tour, so some familiar faces might not be onscreen tonight, or will make an appearance at the beginning or end of the show, in an abbreviated capacity.

That’s it — enjoy the show and see you in the new year!
