Raw Five-Point Preview: March 10, 2014

Get your inner 10-year-old ready, because not one, but two legends of the squared circle are returning to WWE’s flagship show this Monday. The impending arrivals of both The Undertaker and Hulk Hogan are sure to carry major implications for WrestleMania 30, especially since both Superstars will be on hand to address their respective tasks at The Show of Shows – Undertaker’s match against Brock Lesnar, and Hogan’s duties as host.

Speaking of WrestleMania, Daniel Bryan’s bid for a “Game”-changing match on The Grandest Stage of Them All faces more resistance than ever before; can the “YES!” man overcome his latest humiliation at The Authority’s hands? And will John Cena prevail in his just-announced bout with Erick Rowan? Here’s WWE.com’s Five-Point Preview for Raw, and be sure to check out WWE Network’s live Raw Pre-Show at 7:30 ET for further insight, and Backstage Pass to see Raw’s aftermath at 11:00 ET.

Dead man's tale

Paul Heyman says Brock Lesnar will end The Undertaker's Streak at WrestleMania: Raw, March 3, 2014

Brock Lesnar sends a message to The Undertaker.

Brock Lesnar is champing at the bit to face The Undertaker at WrestleMania, but as Paul Heyman outlined last week, the mad scientist has his own reasons for tempting The Streak a second time. According to Heyman, it was The Phenom’s defeat of CM Punk at last year’s Show of Shows that drove The Straight Edge Superstar to abandon Heyman altogether in late 2013. The Deadman has been confirmed to appear on Raw, likely with a response for both The Anomaly and his handler. What will he have to say?

A crack in The Shield

The Shield Summit: SmackDown, March 7, 2014

All three members of The Shield try to workout their ongoing issues.

Things are … well, they’re not looking great for The Shield these days. WWE’s formerly inseparable trio  are on shakier ground than ever before, thanks to Seth Rollins’ abandonment of the group in the middle of their second match with The Wyatt Family last week. The stunt that cost Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns the match was done, according to Rollins, in order to make a point. However, can “the architect” of The Shield be taken at his word? Or has the glue finally come undone?

Fight the Family

John Cena calls out Bray Wyatt: Raw, March 3, 2014

Bray Wyatt sends a cryptic message to John Cena.

John Cena's grudge with The Wyatt Family continues to burn at a low simmer, and the Cenation leader will get his first chance at retaliation when he goes one-on-one with Erick Rowan tonight on Raw. Can the 14-time World Champion defeat Bray Wyatt's lieutenant, or will The Eater of Worlds leave Cena down once again?

Breaking news, brother

The Immortal Hulk Hogan returns to Monday Night Raw: Raw, Feb. 24, 2014

WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan returns to a WWE ring for the first time in more than six years.

The host with the most is coming back Monday night, and he has big news in store for the WWE Universe. Hulk Hogan, fresh off his big homecoming two weeks ago, is headed back to Raw for a follow-up, and word is he’s packing a huge announcement for WrestleMania 30. What does The Immortal One have up his sleeve, or lack thereof? (It is Hogan, after all; the man never met a tanktop he didn’t like.)

Live that fantasy

Daniel Bryan vs. Batista: Raw, March 3, 2014

Batista looks to end the Yes movement by eliminating Daniel Bryan.

WWE COO Triple H claimed he was sick of dealing with Daniel Bryan’s “fantasy” after the “YES!” man reiterated his WrestleMania challenge to The King of Kings. True to form, Daniel Bryan then kicked The Game square in the head. Needless to say, Bryan is adamant as ever about facing Triple H at The Show of Shows; The Authority and Batista’s joint beatdown of the fan favorite left him lower than ever at the conclusion of last Monday’s Raw. Bryan has always overcome the odds, though he’s racking up enemies faster than ever now. Can he defy those odds and get The Game to play ball? Find out this Monday at 8/7 CT, when Raw goes live on USA Network, and be sure to check out WWE Network’s live Raw Pre-Show at 7:30 ET and Backstage Pass at 11:00 ET!
