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.

01/10/11 Raw preview- Will John Cena return to Raw?

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.

Morrison gave it his all but still came up short in his quest to win the WWE title

Raw opened with Michael Cole informing the viewing audience that John Cena would not be on tonights show due to injuries sustained last week. Also missing from last night’s show show was Jerry Lawler who was selling Miz’s sneak attack from last week.

WWE Title match:
John Morrison vs. The Miz(champion)
Morrison was unable to win the title, but he had a great title match with The Miz. The match featured several cool spots from Morrison, including a plancha off of the WWE logo and a Starship Pain through a table to the outside. The finish came after Morrison crashed through the table missing The Miz, then Miz hit the Skull Crushing Finale for the pin on Morrison.

Eve Torres, Brie Bella and Natalya vs. Melina, Maryse and Alicia Fox
Natalya dominated Fox and Melina with suplexes and clotheslines. The match ended when Torres hit Melina with a neckbraker for the win.

The Usos vs Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov
Jey Uso got the pin with a Samoan drop on Marella. After the match Marella and Tamina knocked out both Usos with a double cobra.

CM Punk came to the ring to gloat about knocking John Cena out of action. This brought out Wade Barrett who took credit for injuring Cena at a house show, he also insisted that he was still leader of Nexus. Punk and Barrett began to argue when the anonymous General Manager dinged in to announce a Triple Threat Steel Cage Match involving Barrett, Randy Orton and Sheamus to determine the a new number one contender for the WWE Title. Punk and Barrett then agreed that if Barrett won the match he would gain control of Nexus but if he lost Punk would be the group’s leader.

Alberto Del Rio def. R-Truth
The returning R-Truth challenged the cockiest Smackdown superstar Del Rio to a match after Del Rio promised he would dominate the Raw and Smackdown superstars in the Royal Rumble match. Del Rio proved he spoke the truth when he pinned the rapping wrestler.

#1 Contenders Steel Cage Triple Threat match:
Sheamus vs Randy Orton vs Wade Barrett
Barrett had the match won when fellow Nexus member CM Punk came to the ring. Punk met Barrett at the top of the cage and knocked Barrett back to the mat. This allowed Orton to walk out of the cage after he laid out the Celtic Warrior, King Sheamus with a RKO.
