Well, it’s Monday, and you know what that means… It’s time for our weekly WWE RAW preview. Let’s hope that WWE made some good New Year’s resolutions this year, and one of them included making RAW a lot more enjoyable every week.

Yeah, I know. That’s a pipe dream.

Anyways, it’s the first RAW of 2017, and when we last left our boys and girls, Sami Zayn still had a death wish, Roman Reigns continued his ridiculous streak of beating Kevin Owens, and Bayley was getting screwed over by Charlotte and her “Mean Girls” cohort, Dana Brooke. But, it’s a new week and a new year, so maybe this week will bring good tidings and cheer to our favorites.

Yeah, I know. Another pipe dream

Anyways, let’s see what WWE’s flagship show has in store for us tonight.

1. Goldberg Returns

Yeah, big deal. Goldberg is on his way back to WWE to hype his appearance in the Royal Rumble. Break out the band and the confetti and whatever else.

No, I do not care about this. We saw him handily defeat Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series, and I really wanted that to be the end of it. It wasn’t, and now we are stuck with these two doing whatever they are going to do sporadically until WrestleMania.

I just don’t see the appeal.

2. Please Don’t Die, Sami

Sami Zayn may think he’s going to prove that Braun Strowman can be beat tonight, but I think it’s going to end up being proven that Sami is no more than a sacrificial lamb.

WWE appears to be having a love affair with Strowman, and they aren’t going to let Sami beat him decisively. So tonight, we will either get shenanigans, some sort of swerve, or Sami is just going to get destroyed. Any way you look at it, Sami may be the Last Man Standing tonight, but he’s going to get the short end of the stick when this whole angle pans out.
