Tonight’s WWE RAW emanates from the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina. Tonight’s show will be opened with a “Piper’s Pit” segment featuring the return of “Rowdy” Roddy Piper interviewing John Cena. In addition, the main event will feature CM Punk vs Alberto Del Rio for the WWE Championship.
Advertised for the local Columbia crowd is Big Show vs Mark Henry for the World Heavyweight Championship. Also advertised is a triple threat WWE Title match featuring Cena vs Punk vs Del Rio, though that likely won’t take place because there is already the aforementioned WWE Title match headlining the TV broadcast.
This will likely also be the final WWE television appearance for John Morrison, who is expected to leave the company this week due to a contract expiry. As noted in an article yesterday, expect Brodus Clay to make his debut tonight by taking out Morrison and writing him off television.
Mick Foley, who will be hosting tomorrow night’s live SmackDown! broadcast, is also rumored to be on tonight’s show. Since RAW stars won’t be in attendance on SmackDown! tomorrow to give a hook to the show due to the tour of Japan, Foley may appear to promote the special Tuesday SyFy telecast.
