After last week's red-hot Old School Raw, the WWE has a lot to live up to, particularly with WrestleMania XXIX now just a month away. There is a ton of feud building left to do, though, so the WWE should have no issue filling Monday night's show with three hours of compelling content.
Arguably, the most anticipated part of the event is the inevitable showdown between The Undertaker and CM Punk. Last week, Punk won a Fatal 4-Way match for the chance to face Taker at WrestleMania. The Undertaker returned earlier in the night and resurfaced at the end of the show to stare down Punk. No words were exchanged and there was no physical contact, but there is likely to be some interaction on Monday night.
In addition to that, Brock Lesnar is scheduled to answer the WrestleMania challenge that Triple H laid down last week. Also, WWE Champion The Rock will not be in attendance, so it will be interesting to see how the WWE handles furthering his feud with John Cena.
While The Rock won't be present, Chris Jericho is supposed to make his return to WWE programming, and The New Age Outlaws will wrestle for the second week in a row, as they face Team Rhodes Scholars.
Here are the top five things to be aware of while watching Monday night's integral episode of Monday Night Raw on the road to WrestleMania XXIX.
