    RAW Five-Point Review:

    Less than one week before the Road to WrestleMania kicks off with the Royal Rumble event, WWE’s most legendary Superstars assemble in Dallas, Texas, for “Raw Reunion,” a special night celebrating the rich history of sports-entertainment. With WWE Hall of Famers Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels already slated to appear and new names confirmed to join them, what other surprises are in store for this momentous installment of Raw? WWE.com has some ideas.

    1.Raw Reunion:

    This week, a host of WWE Hall of Famers and Legends will converge on Dallas, Texas, for “Raw Reunion,” a celebration of sports-entertainment history. We’ve already learned that Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels will appear to take part in the festivities, but WWE.com can confirm that joining them will be Kevin Nash, X-Pac, Jimmy Hart, Billy Gunn and Ron Simmons. What awaits on this all-star evening?

    2.Will Brock Lesnar exact vengeance against Seth Rollins?:

    Some called it opportunistic, others think Seth Rollins has a death wish. Regardless, Mr. Money in the Bank made a major statement on last week’s Raw when he not only Curb Stomped John Cena during the contract signing for Royal Rumble’s Triple Threat Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, but delivered the sickening move to reigning titleholder Brock Lesnar.

    Thursday night on SmackDown, Rollins struck again, this time threatening Paul Heyman in Lesnar’s absence. Even though The Authority is behind him, The Architect had best be careful, as the ravenous Beast Incarnate will be looking for payback.

    3.Is Dean Ambrose his own worst enemy?:
    [​IMG]
    Even though Dean Ambrose was standing tall at the conclusion of Thursday night’s SmackDown, The Lunatic Fringe was feeling far less celebratory last Monday night, when United States Champion Rusev battered Ambrose so badly, the referee was forced to stop the match. The unstable Superstar argued with the official over the decision, and was then blindsided by a superkick from The Hero of the Russian Federation after the bell.

    Ambrose hasn’t necessarily been concerned with his wellbeing lately, and as The Lunatic Fringe seeks to gain momentum in the lead-up to the Royal Rumble Match, there’s no telling how he’ll put his body on the line this week on Raw. But will Ambrose’s devil-may-care attitude be his undoing?

    4.The “Yes!” Movement reborn:
    [​IMG]
    For the first time in months, Daniel Bryan returned to action Thursday night on SmackDown, battling Kane in the night’s opening contest — a bout that was interrupted by J&J Security — and then successfully teaming up with Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns against Seth Rollins, Big Show and Kane in the night’s tag team main event. After showing no signs of ring rust following his prolonged absence from the ring, The “Yes!” Man now looks to the Royal Rumble Match and beyond, determined to headline WrestleMania for the second year in a row and compete for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

    Emboldened by the support of the “Yes!” Movement, Bryan seems more confident than ever. However, his dreams might very well be crushed by The Authority on SmackDown, where Bryan must battle Kane in a rematch with his Royal Rumble Match spot on the line. Will Triple H and Stephanie heap even more obstacles onto The “Yes!” Man on Raw?

    5.Will Reigns and Big Show clash once again before the Royal Rumble Match?:
    [​IMG]
    Roman Reigns is an odds-on favorite to win the 2015 Royal Rumble Match, but he’ll need to get through Big Show first. The giant announced his participation in the over-the-top-rope bout Thursday night on SmackDown, and there’s nothing The World’s Largest Athlete would enjoy more than tossing Reigns over the top rope himself.

    After Reigns got the better of Big Show on SmackDown, the goliath is surely anxious to get his hands on the powerhouse before the Royal Rumble Match. Will we see a giant-sized collision between these rivals?​
     
  2. The Kliq and the NWO meet LIVE on Raw! Maybe there's someone known for killing factions by himself hiding in the rafters somewhere... :hmm:

    Y'all have fun with this :happy:
     
  3. Kliq & NWO apart of the pre-Royal Rumble festivities, there's a good chance I'll be here for this mainly because I'm bored Monday nights but idk.
     
  4. Pumped for this episode!

    With NWO/The Kliq being there and Sting, hopefully, this should be a good one! Hopefully I won't jinx it by saying this.

    Obviously looking forward to seeing D-Bry, Heyman/Lesnar/Rollins and Reigns hopefully putting the Big Slow out of his misery.
     
  5. NWO/Kliq/DX reunion.. should be fun.

    Why in the hell are Ric Flair, Ron Simmons, and Jimmy Hart going to be there?

    Unless they are announcing another season of Legends House and these are the participants?

    Hmmmmmmm.....
     
  6. I always get hyped for the Nature Boy, WOOO!:woo1:
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  7. Ah, Nash. Now I'll be watching live
     
  8. If the rumors are true then The Ascension are going to be confronted by the Acolytes/APA, JBL and Ron Simmons possibly leading to a match tonight?

    Eh..... Not so sure about this scenario.
     
  9. The New Age Outlaws are expected for a quick program with The Ascension.

    But, whoever ends up facing The Ascension, they're gonna get squashed.
     
  10. Since Rollins wanted to cash in on Lesnar last week on Smackdown, I expect him to try to do the same thing this night on RAW and actually happen. I can see him beat Lesnar after Lesnar being distracted by Cena and Rollins winning with a roll-up or small package, but unfortunately if this happens, Rollins will lose the title anyway at Royal Rumble (most likely Lesnar taking it back). A reign of 5 days sounds "meh", but it's a booking that I'd really like to see it happening.

    How about this booking?
     
  11. I wouldn't mind it however I just don't see it playing out like that but who knows.
     
  12. I don't see them giving that match away before the Rumble, but then again they did it with Rollins/Reigns a week before NOC, so who knows.

    I just don't see it happening, Rollins cashing in tonight only to lose it at the Rumble is so lame.
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  13. I wouldn't mind this short run. If he wins this match, he won't be a cowardly heel as WWE books him nowadays. All he needs is a clean win over someone big, like Lesnar. Being WWE Champion in the Wrestlemania Season means something.
     
  14. The only guy I see going over Lesnar clean is the RR winner and that is happening at Mania, so it's either DBry or Reigns. Rollins should cash in at Mania, not a second before. That's just how I feel.
     
  15. We will see. It was just my idea.
     
  16. Nah, that's cool. I'd just prefer it at Mania. But to each their own.

    I'd love to see a cash in by Rollins, regardless. And I would just hate to see him have a short title reign, that's all.
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  17. Right, me too. But I fell like it's a good way to do what I just said in the previous post. Lesnar is a big name. Even though, Lesnar never wrestled on RAW since he has returned.

    I'd like to see a bigger reign, though. But if Reigns wins at WM, I don't see WWE taking the title from Reigns this fast.
     
  18. Lesnar is paid per appearance, so I doubt they'll have him wrestle on RAW, they'll save their money for the PPVs, most likely.

    - Why not? It's only gonna make Roman a bigger face than he is already. If Rollins cashed in on Reigns at Mania, we'd get the former Shield feud and that is cool, in my book. Reigns would prolly regain the title at SummerSlam.

    Speaking of ruining big moments, WWE likes chapping D-Bry on the ass, so I really see Rollins cashing in on Bryan at WrestleMania.
    Or, Bryan can win the Rumble and still fail to beat Lesnar, then Heyman can turn on Lesnar and help Rollins to cash in (Lesnar's contract expires on post-WM Raw episode).
    Plus, they teased Rollins/Heyman working together in the near future this past Thursday on SmackDown, so that one's possible.
    There are a bunch of scenarios, really. But we'll see what happens.
     
  19. #REIGNSWINSLOL :sunglasses:
     
  20. I can only see Lesnar appearing in the Raw Reunion segment
