Welcome one and all to the first Monday Night Raw of 2017!
Tonight’s broadcast features the return of the 1-that-beat-the-1-in-23-and-1, Goldberg! Bill returns to Raw tonight to hype his upcoming appearance in the Royal Rumble this month. Can Goldberg actually overcome the 29 other men in the Rumble? Or will his seemingly unfinished business with Brock Lesnar cause both men to lose their chances of winning the Rumble? It will be interesting to see what Goldberg has to say tonight!
Also on tonight’s show, Universal Champion Kevin Owens is likely to be avoiding Roman Reigns, while Chris Jericho probably spurred the ire of Seth Rollins again last week, so expect these four to continue brawling. Braun Strowman is still on a warpath looking for Sami Zayn, who actually sneak attacked the big man last week. These two are going to compete tonight in a Last Man Standing match that certainly paints Sami into a corner. Strowman, as of right now, is my top prediction for actually winning the Rumble, so you can expect WWE creative to continue rocketing him to the stars!
Bayley is still chasing WWE Women’s Champion, Charlotte. Bayley has yet to earn a title shot, despite having pinned Charlotte more than once. The two are clearly going to face-off at the Royal Rumble, therefore a match should be scheduled tonight or in the very near future. Elsewhere, Neville scored a pinfall over Rich Swann on 205 Live last week, so he is surely in line for a title shot, Sheamus and Cesaro have several teams vying to be the number one contender’s, and Enzo and Big Cass are still fighting with Rusev (and now Jinder Mahal for some reason).
That’s the preview for tonight’s show, it’s going to be a big show to start off the year. Get talking in the comments section and enjoy the show!
