One quarter (or fifth) of Stunt Granny will be attending Raw tonight at the fabulous Nationwide Arena in lovely downtown Columbus, Ohio. Andy, Tim & I will have seats close to the one pictured above.
According to WWE.com, James Roday & Dule Hill will be the guests hosts. I couldn’t pick these guys out of a line up even if their show airs directly after Raw during their season. The guest host role has been reduced some as of late so I’m sure they’ll do a fine job of playing buddy, buddy with John Cena since he will be on Psych that airs Jan. 27th. No other information is provided on their site.
Over at our buddy Jason Powell’s Prowrestling.net, he notes that John Cena versus Sheamus for the WWE Championship. I’m sure this match will end in some type of DQ because they’re not going to change a match at the Royal Rumble this close to the event. I’m not sure what else to expect aside from maybe a qualifying match or two for Royal Rumble entrants.
Because of a demanding contractor and shit weather, I didn’t get a chance to take pictures of Nationwide to do an Architecture of Wrestling but it will get done at some point. Considering this will be the second Raw in eight months, I get the odd feeling a live taping won’t happen again for a while. I try to make the arenas coincide with live events but this one may be an exception.
We’re hoping to get an audio posted soon after the event even if it means me staying up way past my bedtime. – Kevin
Update: Ted DiBiase (Jr.) will be signing copies of “The Marine 2” at the K-Mart down the street from my condo tomorrow between 6-8 PM. I’m debating whether to be a complete dork. I don’t think it’s worth the money to buy the DVD though.
