Raw brings three title matches to Trenton

The Raw World Tour is coming to Trenton Friday night, and it's not coming empty-handed. The card, which is subject to change (and already has, in fact, due to John Cena's injury), features THREE title matches, improving the chances that a title could change hands.

In the main event, Ryback, who is undefeated, will challenge CM Punk for the WWE Championship. Oh, and it's a last man standing match, which means no disqualifications-- which means one of these is losing much more than a wrestling match in Trenton.

Team Hell No, the comical pairing of Kane and Daniel Bryan, will defend their titles against Epico and Primo. I find this to be interesting since, you know, there's this tournament going on to determine the number one contenders, and here Epico and Primo are getting a chance to win the belts before the tournament is finished.

Then, as if that wasn't enough, Antonio Cesaro will defend his United States Championship against kiddie-favorite Sin Cara.

Speaking of kiddie-favorites, Funkateers will be happy to know Brodus Clay is scheduled to appear. Also expected to travel to Trenton are A.J. Lee, Santino Marella, Jack Swagger, Damien Sandow, David Otunga and Eve.

John Cena was originally advertised to wrestle CM Punk. Because of his elbow injury, he was pulled from the card and is not expected to be at the event. If you are bringing kids, please let them know so they do not leave disappointed.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6 p.m.) at the Sun National Bank Center. Tickets start at $15. For tickets, click here.

Mick Foley visits Hamilton today

Mick Foley is signing copies of his new children's book, A Most MIZerable Christmas, at the Barnes & Noble in Hamilton starting at 6:30 tonight.

The book features Superstars like Sheamus, Wade Barrett, Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler and Natalya as kids bullied by The Miz. Somehow, he stays on Santa's list of good boys, until a new kid comes to town and changes everything.

The Barnes & Noble is located at The Hamilton Marketplace, 425 Marketplace Blvd. The WWE is recommending fans arrive early.

WWE debuts new Main Event tonight

Tune in tonight at 8 p.m. to ION (on my cable, it's Channel 20, even though ION's website told me it would be Channel 19...) for WWE's latest program, WWE Main Event. Trust me, based on past experience, this will probably be the best this program will get.

They'll put on a good show tonight (CM Punk v. Sheamus is the advertised match) to draw viewers in, but it's likely to turn into Heat by the end of the month.

According to ION's press release, the show will feature matches taped the night prior, or during SmackDown shows.

What I don't understand is why WWE keeps tossing out these programs on various channels when WWE had planned to start their own network by the end of the year. If they've delayed that and are giving programs for the channel a temporary home, why hasn't the most anticipated (and finished filming) program, Legends House, debuted somewhere yet?
