WWE Raw Live Results, Coverage and Analysis
Welcome, everyone, to the Bleacher Report live WWE Raw coverage for Feb. 4, 2012.
Sunday night, fans all around the world witnessed one of the most interesting Super Bowls in NFL history.
After an incredible game like that, Raw has a lot to live up to tonight in terms of sheer entertainment value.
This week's Raw is going to be interesting as we will witness the fallout from Brock Lesnar's attack on Vince McMahon last week.
WWE.com claims McMahon has a broken hip, which means someone else will have to represent WWE management at the show. Perhaps, Triple H?
There is also sure to be some word from CM Punk regarding the WWE title, Brock Lesnar's return and the future of Paul Heyman.
After The Shield and Brad Maddox appeared in a video, which proved Heyman's guilt, we might get some kind of response from Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose to justify what we saw in the video.
Alberto Del Rio may come to the show seeking revenge for what happened to Ricardo Rodriguez, The Rock and John Cena will probably get some coverage and Dolph Ziggler will likely steal the show in some way.
Will Triple H step in and stand up for his father-in-law?
Will The Shield finally meet their match?
Who will be in the Raw Elimination Chamber match?
And lastly, will we be forced to watch more dancing from Tensai?
Make sure to bookmark this page and come back tonight at the start of the show (8 PM Eastern) for answers to all these questions and up-to-the-minute coverage of all the action as it happens.
