    Monday Night RAW: January 20th, 2014

    The Monday Night RAW Episode for the 20th of January, 2014: Continental Uprising



    Yes, Santino on a WWE promotional poster. You forgot two years ago, didn't you?


    - Happy Belated Birthday to David Bautista, better known as Batista, who turned 45 on Saturday.
    - Happy Belated Birthday to Ronnie Killings, better known as R-Truth, who turned 42 yesterday.
    - Happy Belated Birthday to Pat Patterson, who turned 73 yesterday as well.
    - Happy Early Birthday to former WWE Diva Maryse Ouellet, who turns 31 tomorrow.



    - Today In Wrestling History: 2002: It was the Royal Rumble PPV with such memorable matches as Ric Flair vs. Vince McMahon in a Street Fight, Edge vs. William Regal for the Intercontinental Championship, Chris Jericho vs. The Rock for the Undisputed Championship... and of course, the Rumble Match itself. Now what stands out about '02's Rumble is one very interesting elimination between The Undertaker and some "Tough Enough" newcomer...

    ... and the eventual winner later on...

    Without further ado, here's 2002's Royal Rumble Match.




    Batista returns tonight in case you forgot. You're welcome.


    --- Questions To Ponder ---

    - Is there anyone that you believe will NOT be in the Royal Rumble match that isn't already on the card itself so far that has appeared on a WWE show within the last month or so?
    - Will a match for the Divas Championship be announced tonight for the PPV, and if so, AJ Lee against who?
    - How confident are you in thinking Alberto Del Rio will interrupt Batista tonight?
    - Will Daniel Bryan appear on tonight's RAW despite reports of him suffering a concussion?
    - Who do you think will win the Royal Rumble, and what entrance number will he draw?


    --- Enjoy the show, everyone. I'm the illest fool, cooler than the water in a swimmin' pool... ---

    Obviously there will be quite a few, but I'm gonna say of heavily featured guys Eric Rowan and Luke Harper will not be officially in the Rumble but will do the fighting for Bray when he enters.

    - Will a match for the Divas Championship be announced tonight for the PPV, and if so, AJ Lee against who?

    Yes. Against Brodus Clay's dancer with the nice backside.

    - How confident are you in thinking Alberto Del Rio will interrupt Batista tonight?

    Extremely
    .
    - Will Daniel Bryan appear on tonight's RAW despite reports of him suffering a concussion?

    Yes. Won't be in a match though.

    - Who do you think will win the Royal Rumble, and what entrance number will he draw?

    I think, if he is able to compete Daniel Bryan. He will probably enter late if he has had a concussion. Maybe 28. If he's not able to compete then CM Punk and he will enter number 13.

    Bryan won't wrestle but will appear tonight but will wrestle in and win the Rumble Sunday.

    If true.....

    It's true. Or at least every indication is that it's true. Hurra Duff is right though; no way Bryan wrestles tonight regardless.

    Yep. Highly unlikely he wrestles tonight. Unless they want to give him a lighter schedule at the Rumble and they have something like a beat the clock to be number 30 challenge and Bryan wins his match in about 10 seconds

    If WWE knew what was good for them, they wouldn't have let word leak that Bryan is cleared. Act as if he's not ready on Sunday. He then wins the Rumble at #30 or so.

    No Daniel Bryan is a draw and they should take advantage of that.

    If anything they should make it seem he will wrestle (by leaking it) even if he cannot.

    I reckon they are still looking to do Punk and Bryan as the first two guys in the Rumble, hence they decided to announce this now. Would've been interesting if they had kept it hush and made it seem like Bryan was legit hurt though; a storyline where Bryan wasn't cleared to compete but entered and won the Rumble anyway, only for Triple H to strip him of his title shot afterwards would've been gold.

    Bingo. Gold.

    Watching Nitro volume 1 right now, I always smirk at Luger's WCW music. So crappy.

    Has Luger won the title yet?

    They'll either wrap it up this Sunday at the Rumble, or at the Chamber next month as Bryan prepares for the Mania main event. Contrary to the reports, I'm still of the mindset that the WWE never intended for this storyline to go longer than it did, and this was just a way to pass time till Wrestlemania season kicked into gear.

    Agreed, I think it was always intended to end on last weeks Raw. However I would of liked Bryan in The Wyatt's to have started a little earlier. Like the Raw after TLC.

    And do you think they're seriously gonna just throw Big Dave into some random program with Del Rio? Not really sure what purpose that'd serve for either one of them, since there's no chance in hell Alberto's winning it

    That is asking a bit much, but I think it is safe to say that the magnanimous WWE will put a black wrestler over...in a match tonight!

    A few months ago, Steph wanted the ruthless Randy Orton.

    Remember those Raws where Triple H and Stephanie ran things while guys like Goldust, New Age Outlaws, and Big Show were wrestling on the show?
    I think it's awesome that the word lisp has an "s" in it.

    Far less of a pop than I expected. Wondered if the crowd mics are weird or something.
