wwe raw viewershipRAW New Years Comes to Richmond!

Tonight's WWE Monday Night Raw is a special "Raw New Years" episode, live from the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, VA!

The only match that has been announced for tonight's show is an Intercontinental Championship defense. Big E. Langston will face off against Fandango, who earned his shot after defeating Dolph Ziggler in a "Present on a Poll" match during last week's Raw Christmas special. 

As we have been reporting, the "Beast Incarnate" Brock Lesnar is expected to make his return to the WWE tonight, and there have been some reports stating that Paul Heyman will be coming back with him. What will Lesnar have in store for the Raw roster so far away from WrestleMania? Will he compete in the 2014 Royal Rumble match? 

WWE's official website is also teasing that The Authority and the locker room may have comments about the impending return of Batista, who is scheduled for the January 20th edition of Raw. They are also questioning what is next for John Cena after his unsuccessful attempt to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion. With Cena and several other top stars at a seperate live event tonight, expect a few pre-recorded backstage segments, and a lot of focus on the remaining top talents CM Punk, Daniel Bryan and The Shield. 

Also, 2014 is right around the corner which means, for whatever reason, the 450-pound giant Big Show will be appearing in a diaper. Check out our exclusive live coverage of Raw New Years tonight kicking off at 8PM EST to see what other anceint esoteric references WWE will pull out of their hat for no reason!!
