Tonight, on the With Leather WWE Raw open discussion thread:
The City of Brotherly Love is about to get its biggest dose of electricity since Benjamin Franklin: WWE Champion The Rock is back in town. With the various WrestleMania matches set, the Superstars are frothing at the mouth to get a piece of their rivals, from The Undertaker’s hunt for CM Punk (still at large with Paul Bearer’s urn) to Team Hell No’s quest to humble Dolph Ziggler & Big E Langston. But the faceoff the WWE Universe is most anticipating is that of Rock and John Cena, who will surely have words when The People’s Champion confronts his No. 1 contender. Here are five things to look forward to on this week’s Raw. (via WWE.com)
Our five-point preview:
1. h/t to @TripleH and @CMPunk for Urn Anderson. I hope they follow it up with a Bury Windham.
2. The Rock will finally~ return to Raw, and I will only say nice things about him, because people who like the Rock are extremely frustrated to find out that others don’t. He is an extremely handsome older gentleman who works better as a presenter at the Kids Choice Awards than CM Punk would! Also, he never had a period on Raw where he pretended to be a “sheriff” and rode an ATV around, so he’s got that going for him. And besides that one time he imitated Triple H, he’s never been Triple H, so … yeah, Rock’s pretty awesome I guess.
3. Will Kofi Kingston continue his streak of making me love him on Raw? If his role tonight is “lose heinously to Antonio Cesaro to get the US Champion back on track,” then YES, YES HE WILL.
4. Brock Lesnar and Triple H will have WORDS with each other, and they will be tense, and Paul Heyman will get pulled around by his ponytail and ridden like a horsey, because that’s what super tough guys do when they’ve got a big fight coming up. Heavy breathing and horsey man riding.
