raw-recap

This week RAW comes to us live from Dallas, TX and it’s looking like it’s going to be a stacked show, between the John Cena/CM Punk main event, the Vince McMahon/Paul Heyman “fight”, and potentially an appearance by a certain “Deadman”. Let the build to Wrestlemania 29 continue…or something.

[WWE News] Wrestlemania XXX Date and Location Officially Announced

wm30 logo

In a press conference held earlier in the day WWE officially announced that the 30th edition of its flagship event Wrestlemania will take place on April 7, 2014 from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Joining Mayor Mitch Landrieu for the big announcement were Chairman Vince McMahonJohn Cena, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H, The Rock, Alberto Del Rio, The Big Show, Mark Henry, The Great Khali, Brodus ClayThe Funkadactyls, and Layla. To watch the entire conference, click the link provided earlier in the article.

Being that New Orleans has long been rumored to be the location this probably doesn’t come as much of a shock to anyone who bfrequents the bevy of news sites on the internet. But it’s still nice to finally have it be official. And much respect to the WWE for keeping the Roman numerals for the official logo; it’s going to be unfortunate when this time next year everyone is going to make the “LOL TRIPLE X MEANS PORN” joke. Be prepared.

One night after the historic end of the Royal Rumble, WWE presents Raw live from Las Vegas, Nevada. Naturally, with Vegas being the gambling capital of the world, theme for tonight’s show is the “RAW Roulette” which will decide the stipulations for the matches (and other stuff). Tonight will also be Vince McMahon‘s “evaluation” of adviser Paul Heyman as well as appearances by Rumble winner John Cena and the men involved in last night’s main event: CM Punk and the man who beat him for the championship, The Rock.
