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.
