The Dec. 27 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw will take place at the Trans Union Center in Albany, N.Y.

Snow and travel accommodations will most likely play a part in the show and could wreak havoc.

A massive blizzard crippled New York yesterday and has left a lot of people stranded, or stuck at home.

WWE wrestlers and staff just got finished with their holiday break, so most wrestlers who don't live in the North East, have no choice but to fly to New York for the event.

While WWE trucks should make it to the arena just fine, there is no guarantee of how much of the Raw roster will make it to the show, which could make for an interesting night.

With the Royal Rumble so far away, and WWE used to building up to an event two weeks before it starts, this show isn't that important really.  However, it is the last Raw of 2010.  I think they need to finish off 2010

While many believe that Nexus is over, that isn't what some are saying.  According to some wrestling sites, the WWE creative team has got together and discussed bringing Wade Barrett back on Raw this week, in his Nexus gear.

Of course, they could change their minds and have him show up without a Nexus shirt on, symbolizing the end of Nexus, so this could be interesting to say the least.  Word is, Nexus was kept off of Raw last week to sell the beating that were given to them from John Cena at TLC.

The dark match scheduled on the card, puts Randy Orton and his partner, John Cena against Wade Barrett and The Miz with Michael Cole as the special referee.  However, we all know cards are subject to change, but it looks like Barrett is scheduled to be in New York tonight, if he can make it.

Past Raw's that have happened in the snow, bring me back to brawls outdoors.  I remember back in 1996 or 1997 when Ahmed Johnson and Goldust had a No Holds Barred match where falls counted anywhere, and they ended up outside in eight inches of snow, beating the crap out of each other.

I think WWE could use this snow to their advantage tonight and make it part of the show.  How about a Divas Dirty Dozen Snow Ball Brawl!?
