Reality Pit

Raw started with alot of talk, but it wasn't the typical 20-minute promo that opens WWE programming lately. Bagpipes played and Rowdy Roddy Piper entered the ring, followed shortly by his guest, John Cena.

Piper attempted to give Cena the "reality check" that the fans' negativity is starting to affect Cena. After Cena refused to play along with Piper, the Hall of Famer slapped the boy scout.

Then, Cena walked away.

He walked away.

Is Piper right? Will Cena eventually crack, and crack big time as a result of holding it in for so long?

Will the WWE actually let Cena go heel? Can they?

I still don't think so. Cena's new slogan is "Rise above the Hate" and works alongside WWE's anti-bullying campaign. It wouldn't be a good message to Cena's fan base for him to let the "hate" get to him.

Personally, I would love to see it, but the moms buying those kids' tickets won't.

The curious case of Brodus Clay

Every week this month, we've been teased Brodus Clay is making his return. Then, he never appears on air.

Will he remain behind the curtain another week?

Rumor has it Brodus is backstage at Raw every week, but doesn't get to make his grand entrance because of last-minute script rewrites.

I suspect this rumor was fed to us by the WWE for the storyline. As I believe I've mentioned before, with Internet's ability to spread news, WWE has used it to further storylines, as well as throw people off with false news.

I believe this is leading to Brodus getting fed up with the delay, and making a destructive appearance. Perhaps he'll even be a hero heel, attacking John Laurinitis along his path of destruction...

Will Survivor Series be Rocked?

I must admit, I was a little disappointed in the Rock-ing of Raw Monday night. It felt like Mick Foley had more air time than the electrifying one.

Will we have a similar show tonight?

Will The Rock simply wait on the apron, flashing his smile to the crowd, as John Cena does all the work? Will the The Rock's only contribution be a People's Elbow?

Hopefully, The Rock is saving a little less for WrestleMania, and we are getting our money's worth tonight...

Social Media Champion

Today, Google+ unveiled brand pages, allowing businesses, organizations, media and the like to join the social media platform. Only 16 entities were the social network's launch partners, and WWE was one of them.

Yup, that's right. WWE is such a worldwide social media icon that they got to be among the first to have a Google+ page.

The other partners were Angry Birds, Barcelona Footbal1 Club, CNN, the Dallas Cowboys, Fox News, Macy's, The Muppets, Pepsi, Save the Children, Toyota, Train and the X Games.
