PLAYERS: John CenaRandy Orton
WE’RE BEST FRIENDS This week, on the With Leather WWE Raw open discussion thread: With the huge announcement that Batista is returning to WWE, 2014 is already shaping up to be an exciting year. But let’s not forget about 2013 just yet. In fact, here are five things to look forward to on the year’s final Raw, tonight at 8/7 CT on USA Network. (via WWE.com) Our five-point preview: 1. After a week of holidays (which we are not allowed to legally mention, per the ongoing War On Christmas) we return to business as usual. Here’s a quick Best and Worst recap of last week: the show was kinda brutal whenever we weren’t six-man tagging, and we should all be shaking our head dismissively at John Cena’s scrappy little buddy CM Punk. 2. Smackdown spoilers have accidentally ruined chunks of tonight’s Raw, but if you haven’t been spoiled yet I won’t do it here. 3. The New Year means a fresh new start for everyone in the WWE Universe.
