Welcome to the Bleacher Report live coverage for the Royal Rumble go-home Monday Night Raw on Jan. 21, 2013, from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.
The Royal Rumble is just six days away, and WWE will be looking to finalize some of the storylines heading into the pay-per-view, as well as to add some more participants to the Royal Rumble.
Last week, we had the 20th anniversary of Monday Night Raw, and WWE decided to make it a low-key affair after recently celebrating Raw's 1000th episode.
This week, we are bound to see segments involving The Rock and CM Punk's feud, The Shield, The World champion Alberto Del Rio and hopefully some more names added to the Rumble. We could also see another appearance by Ric Flair after he and Miz had a good time messing with Antonio Cesaro during MizTV last week. If anyone can get Miz over as a babyface, it is The Nature Boy.
Will anyone else make a return to WWE and enter the Royal Rumble?
Will The Shield get involved in any matches?
Can Dolph Ziggler have a match with a clean ending?
Who will make the next stupid joke about Cody's mustache?
Bookmark this page and come back tonight at the start of the show for answers to these questions, as well as live coverage of all the action as it happens.
