WWE Raw Preview: The Beast comes to Chicago


-- WWE Raw airs tonight - live from Chicago - and here is the official preview:

The Beast returns before WrestleMania

One week after Seth Rollins’ victory over Brock Lesnar’s longtime training partner, Shelton Benjamin, the Universal Champion comes to Raw with the red brand’s most prestigious prize in tow. What will happen when The Beast Incarnate and “The Beastslayer” meet under the same roof? Will Rollins bring the fight to Lesnar three weeks before their anticipated battle at WrestleMania?

Kurt Angle to announce his WrestleMania opponent

On Raw, live in his hometown of Pittsburgh, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle announced that his career was winding down, and that he would embark on a farewell tour leading to his final match at this year’s WrestleMania. This Monday in Chicago, The Olympic Hero will reveal his opponent for that climactic contest.

Whom will Angle battle as he takes his bow on The Grandest Stage of Them All?

Seth Rollins seeks retribution against Drew McIntyre

One week after Drew McIntyre assaulted Roman Reigns and brutalized Dean Ambrose in a Falls Count Anywhere Match, Seth Rollins aims to avenge his Shield brothers by facing The Scottish Psychopath one-on-one.

Will The Architect be able to take down McIntyre on the night his WrestleMania opponent, Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, storms into Chicago?

Dana Brooke gets her title opportunity against Ronda Rousey

Seven days after her bold challenge to Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey was met with a vicious beatdown, Dana Brooke will face The Rowdy One for her title on Raw. On Friday morning, Rousey was fined by WWE for her actions last Monday, which also included striking a WWE official.

The Baddest Woman on the Planet has been living up to her moniker more and more in recent weeks. Despite WWE’s punitive action, it seems unlikely she will alter her behavior to appease WWE management as her WrestleMania title clash with Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair approaches. Might Dana come to regret stepping to the increasingly aggressive champion?

Who will partner with Finn Bálor against Bobby Lashley & Lio Rush?

With a little unexpected help from Lio Rush, Bobby Lashley defeated Finn Bálor this past Monday night to reclaim the Intercontinental Championship.

Now, Bálor will team with a partner of his choosing to take on The All Mighty and The Man of the Hour in tag team combat. Who will fight alongside The Extraordinary Man?

Is Beth Phoenix pondering an in-ring return?

After Nia Jax and Tamina dared to put their hands on Beth Phoenix at WWE Fastlane, the WWE Hall of Famer retaliated on Raw, bringing the fight to “The Samoan Slaughterhouse” alongside her former tag team partner and longtime friend, Natalya.

They say that anything can happen in WWE, and that’s doubly true on The Road to WrestleMania. Are we witnessing a “Divas of Doom” reunion, with The Glamazon teaming up with The Queen of Harts once more?

No. Holds. Barred.

Triple H gave Batista what he wanted: a one-on-one match against The Game at WrestleMania. But the battle will be on The Cerebral Assassin’s terms, and will be a No Holds Barred Match.

When these former Evolution allies clashed at WrestleMania 21 for the World Heavyweight Championship, it was The Animal who walked away with the victory. But after viciously attacking Triple H’s mentor Ric Flair and provoking one of the most ruthless Superstars in history, has Batista sealed his own fate?
