WWE Monday Night Raw Preview: Will Raw Be Rated-RKO?

Micheal RobinsonSenior Analyst IIJanuary 24, 2011

WWE Monday Night Raw comes to us from the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit tonight.

Just one week left until 40, not 30, men will compete in the 2011 WWE Royal Rumble event.

A lot of names should be dropped into the Royal Rumble fray tonight and WWE has a lot to work with, so it should be a pretty good show.

World Heavyweight Champion Edge from Smackdown, will be facing Raw's WWE Champion The Miz in a one-on-one contest.

It is highly likely that both men's opponents get involved in this match tonight, as Dolph Ziggler could be in The Miz's corner, while Randy Orton could be in Edge's corner.

Speaking of Orton in Edge's corner, there are talks that Rated-RKO could be making a comeback soon.  The only problem I see with that is, they are both faces now to many people, so it wouldn't be as good.

It could work, but having a reuniting of the team, then a heel turn at Elimination Chamber, would be better.

Tonight would be a good night to get the ball rolling on that if they are going to do it, having Randy Orton help Edge beat The Miz tonight.  I wouldn't mind to see Ziggler, A-Ri and Miz all get planted with RKO's tonight.  Would you?

Orton and Edge formed a team known as Rated-RKO in October of 2006 to fend off the team of Triple H and Shawn Michaels. Rated-RKO captured the World Tag Team Championships in November of 2006 and officially disbanded in May of 2007, after Edge moved to the SmackDown brand.

Besides the two title matches and the Royal Rumble match, no other matches have been announced for the event.

WWE Divas Champion Natayla has yet to find an opponent for her Divas Championship. Maryse, Eve and Melina all seem like great opponents, as the match could be turned into a fatal four-way.

However, there is always an outside chance that newly signed Diva Kia Stevens (TNA's Awesome Kong), could be making a debut any week now, as she has not appeared at Florida Championship Wrestling, WWE's developmental training site for the South.

Stevens coming in and cleaning house on all of WWE's Diva's would make for great TV, and the women's division needs some excitement right now.
