There are just four episodes of Raw remaining until WrestleMania 29, and it is imperative that the WWE uses its time wisely and continues to build toward the company’s marquee event by putting on entertaining shows each Monday.
That starts with an amazing edition of Raw in Indianapolis on Monday night.
Led by a bevy of part-time superstars rumored to return, the excitement over the company’s April supershow has the fans at a fever pitch, and the WWE must capitalize on that with an amazing episode of Raw.
Add in the fact that the WWE still has to build most of the WrestleMania card—filling the match lineup with undercard and midcard bouts—and Monday’s Raw will have serious implications on the road to WrestleMania 29.
Where: Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis
When: Monday, March 11, at 8 p.m. ET
Watch: USA Network
Star-Studded Evening in Indianapolis
The billing for a WWE show from the arena holding the event is usually not reliable—either because they are misinformed or they are given outdated public-relations material—but Monday’s show from Indianapolis is advertising huge stars for the event.
Including The Undertaker.
Not only is The Undertaker scheduled to be there, but Bankers Life Fieldhouse is also advertising Triple H, Brock Lesnar and Chris Jericho for this week’s edition of the Raw.
If all of these stars are actually in attendance, it’s going to be a wild Monday.
Brock Lesnar Responds to Triple H
After brutally attacking Vince McMahon and almost doing it a second time, Brock Lesnar was finally stopped by Triple H two weeks ago on Raw. Now that both men are healthy—Triple H had his arm broken twice by Lesnar—it looks like these superstars are destined for a rematch.
Question on Everyone’s Mind: Will Lesnar Accept Triple H’s Challenge?
Lesnar and his manager Paul Heyman are playing the full-fledged heel in this storyline, which means the former WWE and UFC champion will undoubtedly turn down the challenge at first. There is no doubt that this match will come to fruition, but only after Lesnar gives Triple H the run-around.
Hype Meter: 4 out of 5 Seasoned Veterans
Say what you want about Triple H, but the man knows how to put on exciting matches at WrestleMania. With the help of an in-ring animal like Lesnar, this duo will top its SummerSlam match in terms of both excitement and violence.

Team Rhodes Scholars vs. New Age Outlaws
When Team Rhodes Scholars takes on the New Age Outlaws on Monday night on Raw, the WWE Universe may witness the first matchup of what could eventually become the title bout for the tag team championships. If Team Hell No breaks up as they are rumored to do, this tag team battle has a whole new meaning.
Question on Everyone’s Mind: Is it Smart to Bring Back the New Age Outlaws?
As much as the older fans would love seeing the antics of the New Age Outlaws every week, this would be the wrong choice. The novelty would wear off in a few weeks, and while the duo could have made up for that with in-ring prowess before, they are not talented enough in the ring anymore to put on amazing matches. Look for Rhodes and Sandow to help carry the New Age Outlaws on Monday.
Hype Meter: 3 out of 5 Tag Team Rubs
The hope is that the only reason the New Age Outlaws were re-formed was to put over Team Rhodes Scholars and force the duo to tag up once again, but that is likely not the case. With talk that Team Hell No will be going their separate ways starting after WrestleMania, the New Age Outlaws could not only become regulars on TV, but they could also be tag team champions again.
