Posted by under *like, Television | Join The Discussion |

WrestleMania_29_posterThe road to WrestleMania finally ends tonight as WWE pulls into MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey for the biggest show of the year. The stage is set and while the path to get here may have had some bumps and even a few questionable detours, there’s an inescapable excitement when the show is imminent. With mere hours to go, we’ll touch on this past Monday’s Raw, review tonight’s card, and make our predictions for the “showcase of the immortals.”

Also, we’d love for readers to interact with @MLDtweets throughout the night for some bonus WrestleMania action.

Monday Night Raw Warm Up for April 1st, 2013

A lot of big names gathered in Philadelphia last Monday night as Hall of Famers Mick Foley, Booker T, Dusty Rhodes, Bret Hart and Jerry Lawler asker the Rock and John Cena about what we can expect from their WrestleMania 29 rematch.

A lot of big names gathered in Philadelphia last Monday night as WWE Hall of Famers Mick Foley, Booker T, Dusty Rhodes, Bret Hart and Jerry Lawler asked the Rock and John Cena what we can expect from their WrestleMania 29 rematch.

We’re just six days from WrestleMania 29, and the MLD Monday Night Warm Up is taking a bit of a break this week to prepare. We’ll be back later in the week with a special edition WrestleMania Warm Up, while tonight’s episode of Raw will emanate from Washington, DC. Last Monday’s Raw from Philadelphia was exactly the type of show WWE needed heading into the biggest show of the year. Local sports radio hosts in the City of Brotherly Love may not have understood any of what they were seeing last week, but the fans in attendance did and they approved. It would be great for the last Raw before WWE’s biggest show of the year to get the same high marks. At the very least, tonight is likely to bring the usual rhetoric from Cena and the Rock, more disrespect for the Undertaker from C.M. Punk, and Shawn Michaels returns for what could be the final Raw of Triple H’s career given the stipulations of his match WrestleMania match with Brock Lesnar.

While we get our thoughts together for WrestleMania, enjoy some of the highlights from last week.

Monday Night Raw Warm Up for March 25th, 2013

Hustle, loyalty, respect, and perfect attendance are just a few of the qualities that make John Cena a top contender. WWE Champion, the Rock, will also be in attendance on tonight's Raw.

Tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw emanates from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, just two weeks from WrestleMania 29. With the biggest show of the year right around the corner, WWE only advanced two of the three big matches on the card last week and the rest of the show seemed to be on autopilot. Things may change tonight with the Rock in attendance, but I think most fans would agree that Raw should always strive to be something worth watching and the WWE Champion’s appearance should be a given from week to week, not a special occasion.

Monday Night Raw Warm Up for March 18th, 2013

C.M. Punk’s disrespect of the Undertaker reached new depths last Monday as their confrontation at WrestleMania 29 draws nearer.

The Road to WrestleMania gets another week shorter tonight in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The path for the top of the card for this year’s big dance is clear (including Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar, C.M. Punk vs. The Undertaker, and of course John Cena vs. The Rock), but there are still a number of names that don’t have a place just yet. We have our favorites on both ends of the spectrum and as the show approaches we’ll be right here with our reactions to what’s in store.

Monday Night Raw Warm Up for March 11th, 2013

C.M. Punk will try to break “the streak” at WrestleMania 29, adding his name to the impressive list of challengers to the Undertaker at the super bowl of sports entertainment.

Unfortunately, last Monday’s “Old School Raw” suffered the same kind of emptiness as the show’s recent 20th Anniversary episode. The retro graphics, ring aprons, and commentators jackets aside, it was really just another Raw. While that’s not necessarily a bad thing, the 20th Anniversary was a better show and that’s a bit of bad news with WrestleMania just around the corner. There was a lack of focus on feuds on deck for the biggest show of the year which was literally looming in the background. Another big match was announced, but was it enough to save the show?
