Welcome, everyone, to the Bleacher Report live coverage for WWE Monday Night Raw for Jan. 7, 2012.

Tonight's show has a few things already planned out so far.

CM Punk will be defending his WWE title in a TLC match against the monster Ryback in a match that was supposed to happen at TLC, but was delayed due to Punk having surgery on his knee.

We also have the the return of The Rock tonight as he gets ready for his title match against whoever leaves Raw tonight as WWE champion as this year's Royal Rumble.

We will also likely see more names announced as participants for the Royal Rumble match as well as some progression on other storylines like the AJ/Ziggler/Cena situation and The Shield's quest for justice.

Will The Shield make a bold move tonight and attack The Rock?

Make sure to bookmark this page and come back tonight at the start of the show to find out as all the action is covered right here live as it happens.
