Lesnar VS Taker
Before I write anymore. Just watch this video. Were the Undertaker exchanges words with Brock Lesnar at UFC 121. You all have seen this by now.
Looks like Brock and Taker have some history together. Wrestlemania 30 will be interesting how this plays out because it looks like it could get "Personal". Im actually excited to see the build up for this match. Should have some fun characteristics to it. Honestly Lesnar wasn't my first pick for Taker to face. I rather of seen Taker VS Reigns in a all out great match. My only worry is can these two still give us a match that worth while? Will people be talking about this match for the next day? It depends maybe we get a Taker warm up match on RAW. Lesnar has already warmed up i guess. I can't wait to see what the creative team does to help this feud.
Why WrestleMania 30 will have opinions before the start.
The last couple WWE PPV the fan base has bashed WWE. Who could blame them. They weren't good had there moments. People are going to go into Wrestlemania 30 thinking that the show already sucks. They still will watch it though. People have been complaining about Batista/Orton for weeks (Myself included). My question to the creative team is who is the baby face in this match because it sure isn't Batista. There's two angles I see WWE doing involving the Authority, D-Bry, Batista, and Orton for WM30.
Triple H will take on Daniel Bryan in the middle of the card at WrestleMania. Earlier in the day on the WWE App or Network or whatever. They say if Daniel Bryan beats HHH he gets a title shot against Orton tonight. Match becomes a triple threat. Bryan wins.
HHH takes on Daniel Bryan. Bryan wins. Batista win the title. The wonderful next night on RAW Daniel Bryan wins the title.
Im sorry but I could vision WWE doing scenario 2. They care about the next night on RAW so much. Also Punk won't return at WM30 he will return the next night on RAW and beat up John Cena because that happens every RAW after Wrestlemania it feels like.
My point is that we watch because were fans. Even if we hate whats going on we still watch it. Whenever my friends say their boycotting WWE. I laugh because they never do. So people will be mad about the card for Wrestlemania 30. They will go in with the mindset that its the worse mania ever. Well Vince doesn't care if your happy. WWE doesn't care. So I'm preparing my self to see Batista holding two titles in his hands and a bunch of pyrotechnics in the background just be prepared.
" The Hulkmaniacs helped build the WWE Universe brother!". Umm Hulk I think you botched your line. " Whatcha gonna do when the WWE Network runs wild on you". Now thats better. Hulk Hogan is a legend. Funny to watch a all time great botch a promo tho. Hulk Hogan will be hosting Wrestlemania 30 brother. I can't see Hogan hosting brother. What will Hogan do the leading weeks to wrestlemania brother. Will we see Hulk Hogan get into a verbal feud with Jack Swagger brother. Isn't annoying when i say "Brother" every second? Now to reality Hogan will embark into a non wrestling feud with Swagger/ Colter. We will see hogan go all crazy on these two. Hogan going to have to find someone to be in his corner to fight for him at WrestleMania. Who could that be? to me I would pick Roman Reigns to be aligned with the Hulkster. Then again Reigns will probably still be with the shield. Who do you think Hogans apprentice should be comment below.
WWE Network for me has been a journey of watching 3 minutes of WCW Sin then watching only watching 30 seconds of the first ever smack down. My experience with my Roku has been quite hard. I know WWE is still trying to figure it out but. Here some bullet points on likes and dislikes about the network.
I would love the Network if I could watch it without the Roku coming up with reloading error.
Well thats it…

Rest of the Card?
This is the last RAW before two thing the Elimination Chamber and the WWE Network. Many things will play into tonights broadcast. What the rest of the card? How many times will Micheal Cole explain how to download the WWE Network? For Elimination Chamber I see the rest of the card shaping up to be this.
Randy Orton VS John Cena VS Sheamus VS Cesaro VS Christian VS Daniel Bryan in the Elimination chamber for the WWE Championship.
Batista VS Alberto Del Rio
Shield VS Wyatt's
Big E VS Jack Swagger for the IC Title
New Age Outlaws VS Uso's for Tag Titles
Summer Rae VS Emma
Thats how I see WWE booking the show. My picks will be on Sunday make sure to check them out on the Wrestling BreakDownZ. Micheal Cole though might not be the one explaining how to download the WWE Network. The Bella Twins have been doing the flight attendant thing and I can see them explaining it.
Will Uso's get a shot?
Lets hope the Uso's will get a shot at the Outlaws. They deserve it but well Ziggler deserves a push and he doesn't get a shot. It's the WWE Uso's ,can get these huge pops but in there mind they still don't get a shot and they put the titles on The NAO. This sunday though I think the WWE will make the right decision and put the titles on the Uso's this sunday if they don't there just missing another opportunity.
Who is next into the Hall of Fame.
To me its either Paul Bearer, which most wrestling fans know him. Paul Bearer was Undertaker's long time manager and a great entertainer. He also managed Kane and Mankind. Paul Bearer real name is William Moody. William Moody also had a short stint in TNA under a similar character name Percy Pringle III. Or the other possibility for this years Hall of Fame could be Scott Hall. Knowing WWE they will use his ring name Razor Ramon. Also which people might not be expecting this but I can see the N.W.O going in the Hall of Fame but only the real 3 (Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Hulk Hogan) even though that would give Hogan his 2nd induction he would've had his 2nd induction if they induct the Main Event of WrestleMania 1. So tonight they will announce the 4th Hall of Fame(rs). So far we have Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Ultimate Warrior, and Lita. I popped the most for Lita because that one truly shocked me. I knew she would go in the Hall of Fame didn't think so fast though. I can't wait to see who the next inductee is though.
LAST MINUTE THINGS
I know this wasn't a great RAW preview but RAW doesn't have anything special going on tonight. I'll wait and see what happens though.

Slight Name Changes.
Antonio Cesaro will know be just be simply known as "Cesaro". Vince thought "Antonio" was too hard to say. Even though I disagree. But if this means he will get a push. Then Im all for Cesaro.
Also Big E Langston is now just "Big E" which makes more sense. No one knows why Langston was dropped out of the name.
Shawn Micheals reveals who he would like to work with at WM.
Shawn Micheals was recently interviewed on the Podcast " 30 years of WrestleMania". Shawn says who he would like to work with at Wrestlemania. He said the following.
" Thats an easy one for me, it would be Daniel Bryan. I'd throw in any Shield members. I think those boys are talented. Throw in Ziggler in there, Sandow too, I think the Wyatt's are really good too."
Micheals also said " That there is a lot of guys that can tear the house down."
Kurt Angle Facts
In honor of the Winter Olympics Im going to do 10 facts on the Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle.
1. Kurt Angle was born December 9th,1968 and was born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.
2. Kurt is 45 years old.
3. He has won both a gold medal,wwe championship, TNA Championship.
4. Started Amateur wrestling at age 6.
5. Competed in the Olympics with a broken neck.
6. Kurt has feud with the likes of Eddie Guerrero, Brock Lesnar, Edge,HBK in WWE.
7. Angle in TNA has feuded with Samoa Joe, Magnus, Jeff Hardy, and Jeff Jarrett.
8. Kurt was going to compete in the London Olympics and make a comeback to save amateur wrestling. But he had to pull out due to injury.
9. Was the first man to kick out of an F5.
10. Kurt tried out for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1995 even though he didn't play college football.
1. Orton's Next steps.
Tonight on Monday Night Raw Randy Orton will go through another round with John Cena in a epic battle. Orton will have to win tonight or else it will hurt his momentum, but in the WWE these days momentum doesn't matter. One week a guy can be winning next being a jobber. Orton should pull it through tonight. I won't be surprised if it ends in a DQ though because that usually happens. That will be a main event to watch tonight.
2. Team Hell No
Remember when Kane and Daniel Bryan were a team. Well I don't think many remember since Kane became Director of Operations. Kane's role doesn't interest me all that much I never been a "kane" guy. He's a good wrestler a great storyteller in the ring. Just we will know tonight if the Kane and Bryan thing continues HHH VS Bryan will most likely happen but then again crazier things have happened.
3.Tonight Mark Henry returns.
The World Strongest man is coming back to steal someone's push. Tonight he will probably confront Brock Lesnar.
4. Betty White
Betty White will be on RAW tonight and I have no clue what will happen. Prediction is that her Santino and Emma dance.
5. Shield VS Wyatt's
I can't wait to see this match it will be absolutely crazy and chaotic. Tonight on RAW I can see some single action on RAW tonight thats my prediction.

This year's road to Wrestlemania wouldn't be complete without the return of The Undertaker. Undertaker is slated to return the night after the elimination chamber also the night the WWE network is released. I cant see Undertaker VS Brock I don't think taker wants to work with Brock anyways. Daniel Bryan thing is still up in the air I'm guessing. I'm also hearing they might insert Daniel Bryan into the WWE championship match at Wrestlemania which would be a good thing but it would have to have the right outcome. Which in my opinion is Bryan winning the title and 90,000 people doing the "YES". I'm just excited to see the phenom come back. Always a great pop to watch.
Punk thing is still a work
You the reader are probably looking at me like I'm dumb and stupid. Let's think though. When Colt Cabana opened up on the Punk walking out he said the following " He still pretty pissed off at the company". Now everyone think Colt is true. Heck I thought that sounded accurate until the next day on WWE.COM there is a interview with Colt Cabana about Ring of Honor's influence on the WWE. Also Cabana has been to the WWE performance center many times to try out. How don't we know that he's not a part of this trying to make the work look real. Then again could be real. Anything can happen when it comes to Punk.
Corporate Kane doesn't excite me. Never has never will. Now that he has attacked Punk and Bryan its pretty obvious he going to be a big part in the elimination chamber. Also on the next couple of weeks on RAW. Hope this long arching Authority storyline comes to a end soon.

Every monday night at 8:00 RAW comes on and RAW is always live except for Holidays and oversea trips,etc. Tonight this RAW will be different stuff to look forward too. The fans in Pittsburgh hijacked the Royal Rumble and it was hilarious to watch. Tonight on RAW I'll guarantee it there will be a lot of "CM Punk …Clap clap clap…. CM Punk" and also on tonight show we will now know if its a work or not a work. My personal opinion is that anything can happen with Punk and he complains about creative and always has a opinion on the direction of the company. If WWE mentions the name Punk tonight we all know its a work. If they don't then its just another interesting chapter in this CM Punk story.
Also I would like to acknowledge WWE on Social Media has a lot of power so #WeWantPunk could possibly trend but you will not know about that by watching RAW's Trending Now box. WWE unfollowed Punk probably to make it look like he will leave. Punk is a star and right now WWE needs some stars.
Analysis: Cena Eye Injury
John Cena taking a bump to the eye won't stop him bahh gawwwd he's superman for crying out loud. Only if the eye prevents him from not seeing he might have to stay on the sidelines. I just think Cena will act like he doesn't have a injury tonight and do a little stint with the Wyatt's or something to that manner.
BATISTA can create some serious HEAT!!!!!!
Last week on RAW lets face it Brock Lesnar a bad guy got a baby face reaction and Batista the so called "Good" guy got a heel reaction. Vince McMahon's head is still spinning after that segment. Batista isn't a great face anymore after the whole "Rumble" incident and his behavior. Lets face it WWE ruined Batista's return it should of been a surprise and he shouldn't of won the rumble. WE ALL know who should've won the RUMBLE! WWE now needs to make Batista lose his #1 contender spot or else they could have the worst mania reaction in history.
Wyatt's are finally facing The Shield at elimination chamber
Im still surprised we haven't gotten the whole Reigns "FACE" turn yet. At least WWE is getting done with the last good
6 man tag match and there doing what we have been wanting Shield VS Wyatt's. Hounds of Justice VS Follow the Buzzard. This will be a great match.
Im expecting RAW to have some good explanations tonight. Im hoping RAW is good tonight.
Maybe tonight we hear "Its clobbering time" or we will hear "Punk couldn't get the job done"
