Tonight’s Raw will emanate from London, England. As such, a ceremony will be held in which Michael Cole will be knighted. Really.
Outside of this travesty, Raw looks to have at least a couple of good matches on the lineup card. R-Truth, who last week won the right to challenge for the WWE Title at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view, will put his #1 contendership on the line in a one-on-one match with John Morrison. Truth looks like he’s on the brink of taking the next step in his WWE career, but John Morrison has been poised for an ascension up the card for some time now, so either man could realistically claim the victory. Raw will also feature a rematch from WrestleMania 27 when Randy Orton takes on CM Punk with the New Nexus banned from ringside once more. Hopefully Punk will avenge his loss at the grandest stage of them all and claim a much-needed win over the WWE’s Apex Predator. Expect US Champ Sheamus to return to Raw tonight, possibly to seek revenge on Sin Cara for the masked superstar’s attack on the Celtic Warrior two weeks ago.
Like last week, Raw will be preceded by Tough Enough on the USA Network. The Big Show will make a guest appearance this week, and if the past two episodes are any indication, someone will likely be sent packing. I understand that a certain former WWE Diva will also be stopping by to participate in a scheduled cheerleading challenge.
