Last week Raw saw the suprise return of The Rock, this week Raw will see the much hyped return of The Undertaker
For the last month WWE has promoted the return or debut of a mysterious wrestler with the 02.21.11 promos. Many have speculated on who the promos were for but it seems that it will be the return of The Undertaker(sorry Sting fans).
Tonights Raw will also feature the start of the WWE Title feud. Last night John Cena became the number one contender for Miz’s freshly defended title. Wrestlemania will also take shape tonight with other Mania match feuds being featured. It is rumored that Triple H will be taking on The Undertaker in another career vs. streak match and CM Punk is expected to take on Randy Orton.

Miz retained his title at the Rumble with help from Nexus, tonights Raw will likely play a role in the fate of the WWE title heading into Wrestlemania
Last nights Royal Rumble provided possible new directions for WWE’s top stars. Randy Orton failed to capture the WWE title from Miz after CM Punk and Nexus interfered in his match. John Cena was thrown out of the rumble by WWE Champion the Miz and lost his shot at the title. With Elinination Chamber only three weeks away WWE will probably start the build to the PPV on tonights Raw. I would expect the PPV to be headlined by Punk, Orton, Cena, Miz, Morrison and Sheamus with the victor becoming the new champion.
Also coming out of the rumble was the return of Kevin Nash as Diesel and Booker T. The two men where said to have the biggest reactions of the night when they returned so they may be featured in storylines tonight. Rumors have had Booker getting another decent sized push as this may be his last run in the company and Nash may also receive a last run type push.

The final Raw before Royal Rumble features a match between Raw and Smackdown Champions- The Miz and Edge
Tonights Raw is an important one as its the last Raw before the road to Wrestlemania officialy begins. There are strong rumors regarding Triple H participating in the Rumble, some expect him to return tonight to promote the show Sunday.
Also for tonights show WWE has signed a match between the World Heavyweight Champion- Edge and WWE Champion- The Miz. Rumors of an RKO reunion broke over the weekend so the match between champs may become a tag team match.
Another storyline heading into tonights show is the addition of a new member to CM Punk’s Nexus. I would expect the new superstar to be featured on tonights show as the heat between Punk and John Cena builds.

Last week’s Raw featured a change in the leadership of Nexus and a new contender for the WWE Title
CM Punk lead an attack on fan favorite John Cena two weeks ago, putting him out of action for a week. The story of tonight’s Raw revolves around John Cena returning and getting revenge on Nexus and their new leader CM Punk. Another angle leading into tonight’s Raw is Randy Orton becoming the #1 contender for Miz’s WWE Title. On last month’s PPV The Miz escaped with his title after he put Randy Orton through a table. Tonight Orton will be looking to gain momentum heading into his title match and one wonders what tricks he has up his sleeve.

John Morrison tries to win the WWE Title from his former tag team partner, The Miz
The first Raw of 2011 features a WWE Title match between #1 contender John Morrison and WWE champion The Miz. Morrison earned his title shot at the last PPV after defeating Sheamus in a ladder match. Last week Morrison won the right to decide the date and type of match he would have against The Miz when he beat Alex Riley. Morrison chose to fight for the title on tonights Raw and for his title match to be falls count anywhere. The WWE Title situation is murky heading into Royal Rumble with several contenders for Miz’s title. I would expect Morrison to lose tonight by outside interference setting up a multiple man match for the title at the Rumble.

This Monday on a live three-hour Raw WWE Champion The Miz shows off his awesome title and a new King of the Ring is crowned
It finally happened, this past Monday on Raw The Miz cashed in his Money in the Bank title shot and won the title from Randy Orton. The Miz seized his oppurtunity and pinned Orton after he had wrestled a grueling title match with Wade Barrett. I expect the anonymous GM to sign a rematch between the two for the next PPV.
The Cena/Nexus angle is also expected to continue this week with rumors circulating that Cena has bought a front row ticket to this week’s Raw.
The main focus of this three-hour Raw is the finish of the King of the Ring tournament that began on last week’s Raw. The qualifying superstars are Raw’s John Morrison, Daniel Bryan, Sheamus and Ezekiel Jackson. Also qualifying for the tournament are Smackdown’s Alberto Del Rio, Kofi Kingston, Cody Rhodes and Drew McIntyre. Of the eight superstars my pick to be crowned King of the Ring is John Morrison, other likely winners are Sheamus, Del Rio and McIntyre. John Morrison seems to be the likely choice when you consider his most recent push and PPV win over former WWE Champion Sheamus.
