- They open up Raw with an intro of MLK. Happy King Day. Out to the ring first is Cena. He is all fired up. They re-cap him being destroyed by the New Nexus. Also he will face Punk tonight. Cena Has a list of New years Resolutions.1. Take care of the deranged CM Punk. 2. Find a copy of Reggie's Prayer, 3. Win Royal Rumble. 4. Go on to Wrestlemania to become new WWE Champ. Out comes the Miz. "Really?" he says. "Really, you're gonna win the WWE championship? Really?" Says Cena won't win odds aren't against him. There wont be 30 participants but 40. Also winner will be able to choose between WWE Champ and World Champ. Miz advises against challenging him.Cena Rips on Miz for not fighting Orton last week. Says he doesn't want to fight.The Miz isn't afraid to fight. Nice back and forth for a while till CM Punk and The New Nexus come out. This leads to a nexus attack on Cena Out comes Santino and Kozlov. for the Save. Gm Interruption. Punk Vs Cena Nexus barred for ringside. Tag team Championship Match next
- Santino and Vladimir vs the Uso's These guys are working hard to put on a good match but the crowd is dead. The Tag division is dead. This is a championship match, no one cares. The challengers are people no one cares about. Let these guys cut a few promos to see if we like them or get rid if them. Santino lands the Cobra and wins. Disappointing. Nexus members backstage upset about the GM's ruling. Punk Comes in and just smiles and says "Faith" .
- John Morrison vs Daniel Bryan W/ Bella Twins Odd two "good" guys. Lets see how this develops. Pretty even match early on. They are grappling and matching each other move for move. Then to commercial break. After the break, Morrison is in control. Morrison wins the match and I am disappointed Daniel Bryan is one of my favorites right now. good match might be the best one f the night. Out comes King Sheamus and he proclaims that he plans to win Royal Rumble and He wants to eliminate both Morrison and Bryan.
- Coming back from break it seems the Bella Twins have a bet to see who could be Daniel's "first".
- Orton vs Ziggler. "Excuse Me!" No one gets more heat that Vickie right now. Orton gets a loud pop as he is coming out. I am expecting this to be a good match. Ziggler real aggressive early on but Orton gains Control. Really good match I don't want to spoil it by trying to do half ass play by play. Orton wins, but is attacked by Miz and Riley. The King tries to stop him but is disposed of. Miz and Riley leave Orton out. "Awesome!"
- Nexus in the back. Punk is preaching about faith. Someone must sacrifice it all he says. Hmmm... I wonder where this is going.
- Maryse vs Natalia. Maryse is gorgeous. Natalia wins. Don't mean to be so short, but it was a short match. Maryse is flipping out now. Dibiosi comes out to calm er down. She says he can't win the Royal Rumble. Ted Jr offers an over the top rope elimination challenge. Prediction Mark Henry. We will see after the break. After the Break yes it is Mark Henry. He will make short work of Ted. Other Superstars come out and an impromptu Rumble match starts out. Mark Henry is the last man Standing, Until Alberto Del Rio comes out. His name is Alberto del Rio, but we already know that.He isn't here to fight. Just to make his presence known. That is one classy dude there.
- After a long Royal Rumble commercial, they tell us Edge will fight the Miz next week Championship vs Championship. I may have to work OT next Monday but I will watch that match for sure.
- Cm Punk comes out and tells his guys to go back in the back. Cena's pop is not as loud as it usually is. maybe I am dreaming. Cena is taking it to punk early on. Punk isn't even trying it seems. but he turns things around in time for last commercial of night. We come back and Punk is still in control. Cena tries to gain control but Punk counters and keeps control. This is a good match . Another match of night candidate. I love the Anacon Vise came from no where. Brilliant ending, a new guy come out and attacks Punk getting Cena Disqualified. New guy is Nexus.
