02/21/11 Raw preview- Undertaker returns

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.

Mysterious 02.21.11 WWE promo- Retun of Undertaker? Debut of Sting?

A return or debut of a wrestler is set for the Monday night after Elimination Chamber

Sting?
Last night at TNA Impact tapings Eric Biscoff grouped Sting with Kevin Nash and Booker T who recently signed with WWE from TNA. This got fans wondering if Sting would go to WWE for Wrestlemania and be inducted into the Hall of Fame. With Wrestlemania emanating from Atlanta(home base of WCW under Warner) the chances of a former WCW wrestler being inducted are higher this year.

Undertaker?
WWE is expecting The Undertaker to be back in time for Wrestlemania. Undertaker would have to return soon to have his rumored match with Wade Barrett. Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer also reports that if Undertaker is not healthy enough to wrestle on the show WWE may do a tag match, having Undertaker team with Kane to take on The Corre.

01/31/11 Raw preview- Miz still WWE Champion, Elimination Chamber three weeks away

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.

After the match The Bellas where shocked to learn the Bryan had been seeing Gail Kim for several months. The Bellas felt taken advantage of and attacked, the three women had to be seperated.

Non Title match
Husky Harris and Michael McGillicutty vs. Vladimir Kozlov(c) and Santino Marella(c)
McGillicutty starts things off for his team against Kozlov. McGillicutty comes out like a house on fire and Kozlov is forced to tag in Santino. McGillicutty continues to look strong and tags in Husky Harris. Harris overwhelms Santino with his offense and Santino is unable to tag in his partner. Santino gains momentum with his quickeness and goes for his cobra strike on McGillicutty but misses. Harris takes advantage of the distraction and lays out Santino with his finisher for the win.

Wade Barrett vs. CM Punk w/ John Cena as the special guest referee
Wade Barrett comes to the ring with The Corre and CM Punk comes out with his Nexus. John Cena comes out to a massive ovation and precedes to ban Nexus and The Corre from ringside. Cena attacks both Barrett and Punk knowing that if either men attack him they will be disqualified and unable to compete in the rumble.

Punk attacks Barrett from behind and throws him out of the ring, then Cena throws Punk out. Punk flies back into the ring and curses Cena out, Barrett attacks Punk from behind and goes for the pin. Cena rolls out to ringside to sign merch for the fans instead of couting the pin for Barrett. Cena gets back in the ring and exchanges words with Barrett, Punk goes for a clothesline but Barrett counters with a clothesline of his own, laying eachother out.

Cena disqualifies both men for offensive language on a PG show. The Raw GM dings in and ammonishes Cena for his abuse of power, the GM forces Cena to go back into the ring and apologize. Cena does, then attacks Punk and Barrett bringing out Nexus and The Corre. As the factions prepare to attack Cena the Raw locker room empties out and we are treated to a preview of the Royal Rumble.

01/24/11 Raw preview- Champions collide days before Royal Rumble

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.
