WWE Raw Tonight - John Cena graphic

It’s the start of the week, which means Monday Night Raw is on the air tonight. They’re live this week from Boston, Massachusetts’ TD Garden. The show is a 12,863 sellout according to WrestleTix as WWE continues to be on a ticket-selling roll en route to WrestleMania. The TD Garden has been a landmark arena for WWE since 1997 and is one of the few buildings to host all 4 of WWE’s Big 4 Pay-Per-View’s (now Premium Live Events). As a matter of fact, the building has housed TWELVE different WWE PPV/PLE event’s meaning it could fill an entire calendar of them. That’s impressive. It was notably the house for WrestleMania XIV. Headlined by Shawn Michaels vs Stone Cold Steve Austin for the WWF Championship with Mike Tyson as guest enforcer. It saw the crowning of Stone Cold as WWF Champion and the event is seen as the official start of the Attitude Era. Let’s take a look at what the building will host on WWE Raw tonight.

WWE Raw Tonight – Full Card

The Champ Is Here!

Massachusetts’ favorite serious, straight-man action star is in the house as John Cena fulfills his WWE appearance quota early this year What will he do? Well, all signs have been pointing to him inevitably having a match with Austin Theory at WrestleMania. Something that has been teased since WWE celebrated Cena’s 20th-anniversary last year in June with promos by Austin Theory directed at the former 16-time World Champion. Reports even seemed to indicate that segments between the two had been pretaped backstage as far back as last year. Lets see what Peacemaker has in store for his hometown crowd tonight.

Arrogant Face To Arrogant Face

Seth Rollins was gotten to at the Royal Rumble. Logan Paul eliminating him has been like a chip on his shoulder since the event and Logan Paul appearing at Elimination Chamber and costing him the United States title set him off. Two weeks ago, Seth seemed absolutely livid at Logan Paul. Last week though, he seemed more jokey about the situation. Stealing The Miz’s phone to Facetime the influencer and mock his brother. This week though, the two will finally see eye to eye. Without a doubt, to set up a WrestleMania match.

NXT Golden Boys Clash

If this were “black and gold” era NXT, this would be a Takeover quality match. Two of that time period’s most celebrated babyfaces go head to head this week on Raw. This was set up after Johnny Gargano’s plans to face Otis in a match last week were stopped due to The Judgment Day trying to bully him.

Finn Balor has already laid out the challenge to face Edge at WrestleMania. While Johnny Gargano….. Well, let’s just say he’s seen better days. The bigger question going into this match is if Edge will respond to Finn Balor’s WrestleMania challenge and what kind of stipulation they will have. As their last encounter was an ‘I Quit’ match at Extreme Rules. Will they up the ante?

Uso vs Former Uso

Announced on social media, Sami Zayn will face off against one-half of the Unified WWE Tag Team Champions, Jimmy Uso. As Jey continues to be AWOL, Roman Reigns has already laid out his ultimatum. Either Jey returns, or Jimmy will pay. Meanwhile, Sami Zayn continues his crusade to either end The Bloodline or to make them see reason. And finally, the last combustible element, this is Raw. Which means Kevin Owens will have his eye on things as he has not failed to chase out any Bloodline member that shows up on Raw yet.

What Else To Expect?

Cody Rhodes confronted Roman Reigns on Smackdown and the two had a heated exchange of words. Will Cody follow up tonight? Also, we have Carmella taking on Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair. Trish Stratus aided Becky Lynch and Lita in winning the WWE Women’s Tag Team titles. Will Bayley retaliate? They are dead serious about Omos vs Brock Lesnar. And Bobby Lashley has ended up with the opponent Lesnar rejected: Bray Wyatt. All that and more, on WWE Raw tonight.
