  • Nick

    Pray for Y2J…I was looking forward to a potential 2011-2012 nWo with Nash, Miz and Truth.

  • Mordecai

    That ItBegins2012 promo can’t be for the WWE Network, as the network is suppose to debut around Wrestlemania 28. Besides, in the promo it says that on Jan. 2, is when some “familiar force will appear and reclaim what is his…”

  • tim

    I thought maybe shane. Comes back to reclaim what is his….the company. Who knows but the speculation is fun.

  • Nicholas G

    You know I though it was going to be the Miz that turn face not R-Truth. But then again that would kill Zack Ryder run which I don’t get that one either. I mean to me the Miz seem like the guy that was going to take Cena spot but Zack Ryder not so sure.

    As for the Barrett vs Randy Orton feud. You know many people should be giving Randy Orton his just do respect. I mean since he went to Smackdown he has put a lot of guys over an made a wrestler become a pretty good world champion. I mean to me Randy Orton seem like he went to Smackdown to put talent over an that is what he has done. Yeah sure sooner or later Randy Orton will be back in the world title picture but as for right now Randy Orton good job mad respect.

  • Pissed Off Fan =(

    Most likely that twitter thing was for the WWENETWORK. Plus wasnt Brodus Clay AND Jonahh Hill suppose to be on Raw????

  • CardiffWanderer

    WWE network is reputed to start April 1st to go along with mania, the ItBegins2012 video specifically states the return of a “familiar face” will return the second day of the new year.

    This corresponds with RAW in Memphis.

    Its most likely Taker linked with the return of Kane for a 3rd showdown at Mania. Its unlikely to be Jericho at this point as Fozzy have an album due last week of January or first week of February so timing would be poor.

    However one name that should also be considered which is Dave Batista. His Strikeforce contract was cancelled after Zuffa took over the company and has not come to an agreement with either Bellator or DREAM so he is currently without income.

  • breezy

    that link ItBeginsIn2012 isnt for jericho its an ad for the wwe network

  • Greg

    Yeah what happenned to jonah hill??

  • TS93

    So is miz still here? Is truth face? Fingers crossed for a miz face turn. my hometown hero

  • alex_delarge

    no divas, no brodus, no rock, no Jonah? whats up with that

  • Mr. Spadez

    Not that I know we all care about guest hosts ……. but wasn’t Jonah Hill supposed to be on RAW tonight? lol.

  • B

    So I’m totally assuming that the delay of Brodus Clay is actually his gimmick. It probably works out really well, as he never has to actually show up.

  • BlaH

    there goes another tag team down the wwe drain.

  • poko

    It’s been a good RAW thus far. Excellent match between Punk and Ziggler. Even though Ziggler lost, he was put over hard by Punk. It’s awesome to see talent like Ziggler, Barrett, and Rhodes being put over in one show. A big change from a year ago. This is as interesting as the WWE has been in a long time.

    I just hope Kane comes back as an absolute bad-ass.

  • Cakes

    Also, randy Orton vs wade Barrett vs big show vs mark Henry for tHe WHC title in a TLC match at TLC with Barrett capturing the title
    This way, you get the title off Henry before mania and have Bryan vs Barrett at WM28 for the title because it is really the only logical feud they could have Bryan in considering the original nexus storyline and it could actually make that group (even though it’s done) look like it actually meant something.
    So Barrett vs Bryan for the WHC at WM28
    …and miz/truth vs cena in a handicap match at TLC

  • B

    Cakes: you totally forgot for ANY move from the top rope: “With the greatest of eeease”

  • Cakes

    Booker T’s commentary >>>
    “listen here maaaan, I tell ya dat boy “insert wrestler’s name here” is serious maaan.
    “you see dat look in “insert wrestler’s name here” eyes , dat look means I’m ready for whatever dawg”

  • alex_delarge

    brodus clay will make his debut during the divas match. 25 $ on it

  • bloodstone

    anyone even care about wade?

  • bloodstone

    the one on youtube isn’t the same

  • B

    LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, It’s 30 mins before the end of the show, and we’ve yet to see Cena. So it’s time to play “WILL BRODUS CLAY EVER GET DEBUTED?” – Place your bets NOW!

  • jcorona

    Chris benoit…..

  • JohnCenasHair

    It’s the big red machine, Kane!

  • BlaH

    Punk vs Ziggler tonight was the best match of ’11 on Raw.

  • Cakes

    Punk vs ziggler match of the year!

  • bloodstone

    the video on youtube i watch it don’t really understand it

  • B

    Looks to me like the annual Taker Hype Train. ‘End of the World’ would be a reasonable angle to sell towards a going for 20-0 and retiring thing.

  • jcorona

    I’m scared…..what if its muhammed hassan…..

  • BlaH

    nice head stand Zig Zag Man.
    Can’t for the Rhodes & Booker fued.

  • Jay

    Damn! The Rock is not on Raw tonight. Im not watching this crap then

  • Bill

    Did you guys see the twitter add in the corner of the screen that got staticy & in the static was something like “#ItBegins2012″ or “ItReturns2012.com” or something. Sounds like a why too jay reference, if you know what I mean…..

  • BITWx

    saw* the screen, not say the screen, youtube.com/user/itbegins2012

  • BITWx

    am i the only 1 who say the screen go fuzzy and a message come up? a link to a seriously weird youtube video about the end of the world?

  • Cool Mark Punk

    More punishment for getting himself over.
