The calendar might change to a new year, but if it is Monday night and there are no dog shows on television, we have Monday Night Raw. The year starts the same way that 2006 began, with John Cena as the WWE champion. Instead of getting ready for the Elimination Chamber like he did on the Raw before New Year’s Revolution, he is going to face Kevin Federline before he defends the title against Umaga on Sunday night. What is next between Team RKO and Degeneration X as they get ready for the tag title match at the pay per view? Will Victoria try to make things easier for her title match on Sunday when she faces Mickie James? Will the new year bring out any new surprises on the Raw brand?
We start off tonight’s show with highlights of Kevin Federline’s previous appearances on Raw and the set up for tonight’s match.
We are live from Miami, Florida and your announcers are Jim ‘It’s a Fiesta’ Ross and Jerry ‘K-Fed up’ Lawler.
