Monday Night Raw - 30th January 2012The past two weeks have been enjoyable shows. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is Cena/Kane stuff but hopefully it won't take up as much time this week. They've not got long until the Chamber either, so they should do a lot to build to that. As for Triple H and Laurinaitis, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw the return (or a signal of the return) of the Undertaker this week.
Punk still on top
Two weeks ago, when John Laurinaitis claimed that he would screw CM Punk out of the WWE Title, it seemed as though we were destined to have a new WWE Champion: Dolph Ziggler. Things changed last week on Raw when Laurinaitis discovered his job was under review from Triple H which led to Laurinaitis foregoing his previous plans. At the Royal Rumble, despite some minor controversy regarding referees, CM Punk managed to retain his WWE Championship against the Show Off. However, was that enough for Laurinaitis to keep his job? Or will the COO, Triple H, look back on some of the Interim General Manager's more questionable decisions in the past? And what is next for CM Punk - will we find out his opponents for the Elimination Chamber in 3 weeks time? Find out this week on Raw Supershow.
Also on Raw
Despite stiff competition, Sheamus emerged victorious in the 2012 Royal Rumble match giving him a ticket to Miami and the main event of Wrestlemania 28. The question now is, which title will he choose to wrestle for. Could we find out this week on Raw? Sheamus last eliminated Chris Jericho, who put up a valiant effort but in the end fell short. After promising the "end of the world as we know it", Jericho will be disappointed with the outcome. For weeks he has left WWE fans bemused by his actions: will we finally get an explanation this week on Raw? Also at the Royal Rumble, Kane and John Cena fought to a double countout, but the damage was done after the match when Kane delivered the tombstone piledriver to a wheelchair-bound Zack Ryder. Expect Cena to come out looking for vengeance this week on Raw.
