WWE Raw is live tonight Monday, December 9, 2013 from Key Arena in Seattle, WA. Tonight’s episode of RAW will focus on the 2013 Slammy Awards, and will be the final Raw before the Champions go head to head at the Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view on Sunday.
What will happen on the final Monday before the two World Titles are unified under a single Superstar?
Storylines to watch for tonight, via WWE.com:
- Wade Barrett returned as “Bad News Barrett”, and what is to come from him is anyones guess. ’It is only a matter of time before the former Intercontinental Champion delivers some bad news to unlucky Superstars in the ring; who will be the first to feel his renewed wrath between the ropes?
- Is Daniel Bryan going to join with the Wyatt Family? The suggestion seems like pure lunacy at first, but the “Yes!” man’s anti-authority streak of late certainly has more in common with Wyatt’s creepy, down-with-the-machine railing than the WWE Universe would be likely to admit. Does Wyatt’s invitation have legs to it? Monday may give us a clue as to which way Bryan’s leaning.
- Is AJ Lee’s Championship run over? AJ seems to be coming apart at the seams after several unpleasant weeks at the hands of the “Total Divas” cabal. She is facing Natalya this Sunday at the PPV … question is, can AJ get her groove back, or is her time as Divas Champ coming to a close?
- Six days after Monday’s Raw, there will no longer be two World Champions. Instead, there will be one unified, undisputed Champion of Champions.The only question that remains is whether it will be John Cena or Randy Orton who hoists the two-pronged prize when the dust settles at WWE TLC. Then again, there’s also the question of how – if at all – The Authority might interfere in the biggest match to unfold under their watch, and, given Orton’s attitude of late, whether they’re still 100 percent behind their serpentine standard-bearer. Who will come out smiling heading into WWE TLC?
As per usual, we will be live blogging the whole show, so check back to Tireball WWE this evening at 8:00pm/ET.
