WWE Monday Night Raw: Top 5 Superstars to Watch For

1 of 6

    On Monday night, WWE has a huge feat ahead of themselves. They must convince viewers all over the world to purchase Over the Limit in six days. It is going to be a tough task.

    However, WWE has all the right wrestlers lined up to make it happen. The Red Brand will feature many great talents that are more than worth watching out for tonight.

    Who are they? Let's find out!

5. The Big Show

    The Big Show must apologize to John Laurinaitis on Raw.

    That may seem like a "low" act, but this is simply life.

    When you do not listen to simple instructions from your superior, you will face consequences.

    It happens every day. Some people just never learn.

    Tonight, we will see if Show has learned his lesson. While I have an idea about where this story may head, Raw will give us all a hint.

4. CM Punk

3 of 6

    The biggest night of CM Punk's career was last year's Money in the Bank pay-per-view.

    You could argue Survivor Series last year, or even Wrestle Mania XXVIII. I suppose a few other shows may be thrown into the conversation.

    That all changes this week.

    Tonight, Punk gets one last chance to sell all of his fans on purchasing Over the Limit on Sunday. While some certainly have supported him in his rise to the top, numbers show many still do not.

    From ratings to buy rates, it may be time for Punk to convince others he can actually "draw."

3. Daniel Bryan

    Daniel Bryan is in the same position.

    This Sunday, he is in the main event against CM Punk for the WWE Championship.

    That sentence may put a smile on many fans' faces.

    However, those same fans may just flock to the nearest illegal stream site.

    WWE is not making money off traffic on illegal streams.

    They determine who draws by pay-per-view purchases.

    Daniel Bryan had better have one excellent promo ready for Raw. He'd better be ready to appeal to a broader crowd. His small, niche, non-paying audience has yet to prove he can make the company real money

    Tonight is huge for him!

2. John Cena

5 of 6

    Last week, John Cena did not appear live on Raw.

    He did after the show went of the air, but that does not count here.

    The man is set to appear live tonight.

    With his big match with Johnny Ace this weekend, I suspect a fired-up Cena. He will bring the intensity one final time before Over the Limit.

    He always brings his best, and I expect nothing different in a few hours.

1. Triple H

6 of 6

    I would have kept Triple H off television for another few weeks, if not more.

    At least wait until after the pay-per-view on Sunday. Him appearing does nothing for Over the Limit!

    However, he is returning to Raw tonight.

    Everybody knows about Brock Lesnar "injuring" his arm. Everybody knows about Paul Heyman threatening to sue the company. Those are perfect storylines to move forward.

    Brock is going to be away for awhile, so it will be interesting to see what happens tonight with this feud. It could go in many different directions, and I have full faith in WWE no matter what happens.

    Will Heyman appear again? What does Triple H say? Do we get a further update on Lesnar?

    So many questions...
