The first ever Raw Pre-Show on the WWE Network featured Josh Mathews hosting an expert panel of Booker T, Alex Riley and Ric Flair. There was a lot of talk and a "live look-in" from the ongoing WWE Superstars taping in the ring.
Kofi Kingston spoke with Jerry Lawler where he put over his victory against Damien Sandow on this week's WWE Superstars. We have taping results available at this link.
The following was announced for the Monday Night Raw broadcast:
- Alberto Del Rio vs. Batista
- Christian vs. Sheamus
- Brock Lesnar's return to Raw was teased, amid "rumors" he was in the building. He's there and has actually been officially advertised.
There was a backstage interview with Renee Young and Brad Maddox that was interrupted by an argument between Christian and Sheamus. Maddox got in-between them and announced the match we detailed above. He told Young that was her scoop.
They talked about the Elimination Chamber Match and Ric Flair said the best man walked out.
Booker T said John Cena needs to come out and make a statement. Flair said in this business, you're only as good as you were the night before. They're asking a question, wanting fans to vote on their favorite Elimination Chamber match on WWE.com.
