Tonight, on the With Spandex WWE Raw open discussion thread:
Brock Lesnar’s Go to Hell Tour rolls through Dallas en route to Hell in a Cell this Monday night, and The Beast Incarnate isn’t coming alone. Also set to appear live on Raw in WrestleMania 32’s host city are WWE Hall of Famers Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels, as well as The Beast Incarnate’s Hell in a Cell opponent and bitter nemesis, The Undertaker.
After Raw, Lesnar will sit down with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin for a special Stone Cold Podcast, only on WWE Network. The Texas Rattlesnake undoubtedly has some hard-hitting questions planned for The Anomaly in what’s sure to be Austin’s most intense interview yet.
Join WWE.com as we preview the star-studded final Raw before Hell in a Cell. (via WWE.com)
Our five-point preview:
1. Stone Cold Steve Austin was originally advertised for the show, then removed, then advertised again. Now, per WWE’s preview, he’s out again. Raw will probably open with a STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN HERE TONIGHT graphic.
2. Worst-case scenario, Austin’s sitting in with Brock Lesnar on the Stone Cold Podcast after the show, which is sure to be full of worked shoots and threatening references to taking your ball and going home. Should be fun for everyone!
3. The mystery of “who attacked Natalya on Smackdown” continues. Could it be the only person who has been fighting her for the past few weeks? No, it was probably Eva Marie.
4. Let’s hope TMZ doesn’t break the news that Kane and Undertaker aren’t really brothers and ruin all our great Kane storylines.
5. The John Cena U.S. Open Challenge continues, probably! Can we have Shawn Michaels answer it and win? The guy already made one massive comeback from retirement, maybe they can use Undertaker’s dick-kickedness to explain that he’s not sound of mind and go back on the “you can never wrestle again” thing. Or they can just not mention it and get mad at anyone who notices.
