Raw emanates tonight in my backyard at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.

Jim Hensen's Muppets are scheduled to take over Monday Night Raw on a special Halloween episode.

I will not be attending tonight's event due to an unforeseen work schedule.  This will be the first WWE show I've missed in Atlanta for quite some time, especially a live Raw taping.

I have to ask WWE fans out there, and what more appropriately to ask than Halloween night,  do you think WWE Raw tonight will be a trick or treat for WWE fans?

Personally, I think it will be a big let down.  It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact I won't be attending.  I hope it is a great show for the fans able to attend.

Unfortunately, this would be a better show to watch at home.

A lot of Muppets segments, besides some possible commentary will be backstage.

Also, The Rock is scheduled to answer John Cena's request for him to be his partner at Survivor Series. It would be great for him to be there to answer in person, but this is just a big set up for The Rock to be bringing it via satellite once again. 

This reminds me of how let down I was at a show I attended in Charleston, South Carolina some odd years back when the "Trial of Eric Bischoff" took place.

Most of the segments were pre-recorded as we watched on the big screen, I could have been in the comfort of my living room to see that.

I don't think this will be a great show for the fans attending live, but it would be a decent show to watch at home.

WWE is receiving some media attention for the Muppets take over of Raw as well.

However, it is Halloween night and WWE should see a quite significant ratings drop because of this.

WWE has got me excited recently with the Survivor Series build up, and has left me with somewhat of a nostalgic feel of one of the "big four" events.

Survivor Series has always been a great pay-per-view, and it is a shame that WWE almost took it off of the pay-per-view calendar.

However, with Survivor Series still 20 days away, don't expect much build up tonight other than The Rock's answer to Cena.

The only thing we can hope for is Gonzo hitting Cena with a Peoples Elbow.
