*OFFICIAL* Raw Discussion Thread: 2nd January 2017

We haven’t seen Goldberg since he announced his intention to enter the 2017 Royal Rumble Match — and that was before he knew Brock Lesnar was also in the bout — so it will be interesting to hear what’s going through the WCW icon’s mind less than four weeks before the over-the-top-rope extravaganza.

Will Goldberg have a message for The Beast Incarnate, who suffered a shocking, swift defeat to the returning veteran at Survivor Series? How is Goldberg preparing for what’s sure to be a daunting challenge? Regardless, Goldberg never makes an appearance unless it means something. Who’s next? It’s anyone’s guess.

Sami Zayn might have been able to survive 10 minutes against the imposing Braun Strowman at Roadblock: End of the Line, but tonight on Raw, he’ll have to not only defeat The Monster Among Men, but keep him flat on his back for a 10-count in a Last Man Standing Match — a seemingly impossible feat.

And yet, The Underdog from the Underground wears his moniker proudly, and wants nothing more than to prove to his critics, including Raw General Manager Mick Foley, that he can not only withstand Strowman’s punishment, but overcome it. Is Zayn being foolhardy, brave or a combination of both? We’ll find out tonight.

With Seth Rollins serving as a much-needed equalizer to counter Chris Jericho’s distractions, United States Champion Roman Reigns successfully defended his title against WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens last Monday night, and if that was any indication of what's to come at Royal Rumble, The Big Dog could be leaving the Alamodome with titles on both shoulders.

The Architect might not be there on Jan. 29 to keep Jericho at bay, but a shark cage hanging high above the ring will prevent “The Best in the World at What He Does” from helping his bestie steal another win. Should Owens be worried?

Neville’s new attitude has been paying off as of late, most recently in the form of a non-title bout victory over WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann last Tuesday night on WWE Network’s 205 Live. And yet, the so-called “King of the Cruiserweights” has yet to truly sit on his division’s throne.

After defeating Swann, has Neville earned a WWE Cruiserweight Championship opportunity in the near future?

With her most recent win over Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair evidently stricken from the record book, Bayley was forced to battle The Queen for No. 1 contendership this past Monday on Raw. And since Dana Brooke served as the special guest referee, it wasn’t exactly the fair fight The Huggable One had hoped for.

Defeated and unfairly taken out of title contention by the crafty Charlotte, Bayley might need to rethink her path to the Raw Women’s Title. How will she respond to The Queen’s machinations?

Don’t miss Raw tonight!

After their explosive confrontation on the final Raw of 2016, Enzo Amore & Big Cass will face off with Rusev & Jinder Mahal tonight, as announced on WWE's Twitter!

What will happen when Muscles Marinara and his 7-foot tall partner try to get even with The Bulgarian Brute and Jinder Mahal? Find out tonight on Raw.

Good to see Bayley get the victory to be facing Charlotte for the title, I certainly had no problem with the momentary distraction by Sasha Banks which allowed Bayley to quickly take advantage and hit Nia Jax with a Bayley-to-Belly from the middle rope for the 3-count.
