In addition to our preview of this week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, we’ll also update key storylines to catch you up following the holidays:
- Mr. McMahon will work as the special guest referee for this week’s Raw main event between Roman Reigns and Sheamus for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. WWE is looking to engage viewers with the big title match main event, prior to next week's return of Brock Lesnar.
- John Cena is back and the first order of business from a creative standpoint is to blowoff his program with Alberto Del Rio. We’re told officials want to move on quickly here, so expect a blowoff sooner than later.
- Big Show and Curtis Axel are two of 30 announced entrants for the 30-man Royal Rumble match, expect more entrants to be announced on this week’s Raw.
- As seen on last week’s episode of Smackdown, WWE has split Tyler Breeze and Summer Rae.
