Raw Preview 1/2/12

A new year arrives for the WWE Universe and the superstars on tonight's episode of WWE Raw!  Among the top stories that will be developing for tonight's show will be CM Punk defending his WWE Championship against Dolph Ziggler.  Just last week, Ziggler defeated Punk in a Gauntlet match that had been set up by interim Raw GM John Laurinaitis.  The match saw interference from both Jack Swagger and Vickie Guerrero.  However, it was Laurinaitis who caused the biggest distraction to Punk from ringside, allowing Ziggler to hit the Zig Zag for the win.  Now Ziggler is in prime position to score major championship gold.  Will he do so on the first Raw of 2012?

Last week also saw developing nightmares for several superstars.  First up, The Miz saw the return of his former partner, R-Truth, who he thought he had got rid of.  Instead, Truth emerged to seek revenge on Miz, and put him on notice.  Truth said he'll be slowly picking apart Miz week after week, rather than ending it all quickly for him.  With that in mind, it could be a rough start to 2012 for The Miz.  What will Truth have in store for his former "Awesome Truth" tag partner on tonight's show?

And finally, a major nightmare has developed for WWE superstar John Cena.  Cena has been attacked several times by the Big Red Monster, Kane.  Cena finally got answers as to why Kane was attacking him last week, but it has Cena soul searching.  Kane suggested that Cena must embrace hate, rather than rise above it.  That seems to have struck a chord within Cena, and could turn him darker.  Will this end up hurting or helping Cena as he prepares for The Rock at Wrestlemania 28?  What will Cena have to say regarding Kane's statements from last week?

Check out tonight's WWE Raw for 1/2/12 starting at 9PM EST on USA!
