Half of the active roster is still in Japan so we will most likely see a major announcement concerning WM18(Source:411wrestling.com), Plenty of Stephanie(at least 2/20min. segments) and Plenty of the NWO.
let was pray that RAW wil not become a talk show tonight, I hope what I'm hearing is B.S.
RAW could go in one of 2 directions. They could have some good, long matches with the workers in the US, or they could turn it into a skit show. Since Heat was actually a wrestling show with no skits this week, maybe RAW will follow Heat's lead. Nah, get ready for Hogan, Steph, Hall, and UT on the mic baby!!!!
January 4th 1999 - The day WCW injected itself with 10 gallons of Liquid Anthrax...AKA...The day Hogan "Defeated" Nash to win the WCW title in front of 40,000.
Wrestling on a Wrestling Show? Nah... Bring on the talkers... Let's just hope that the WMX8 thing brings the funk, because it sounds like the entire show won't bring much at all...
Holden: Judging by the buzz, that movie's gonna make some serious bank. Jay: What buzz? Holden: The internet buzz. Jay: What the f*ck is the internet? [Holden (Ben Affleck) & Jay (Jason Mewes) in Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back]
On the plus side, RAW will feature the in ring debute of one of the nWo (Hall, unless it's a squash match), and probably some sort of big angle to keep people from noticing that Rock/Jericho/Flair aren't there.

I say it will be Hogan. He did work a house show this weekend
Plenty of Stephanie....SMELL THE RATINGS...dropping as people change the channel. Ugh, can't the nWo smash a semi into her limo so we can get rid of her for a few weeks/months/years/forever? What the hell are they thinking, giving her TWO twenty minute segments for? Ugh, I hope that isn't true. Here's a revolutionary concept: Why not pad out the time with WRESTLING. You know, the World WRESTLING Federation. Nah, that would be crazy (God, I sound like such a whiny smark).
As for the nWo, I think the in-ring debut will go to Kevin Nash, since he doesn't have any match at Wrestlemania. It would be really stupid to have Hogan's televised return on RAW (as Eli said), and I would say the same goes for Scott Hall. However it wouldn't be all that stupid in the case of Scotch Hall, since he doesn't have the "draw" that Hogan's 1st match is going to have.
Well, I have no television this week, because our fucking landlord isn't finished with the new (different) place we were suppossed to move into at the start of this month. So I'm hoping for a whole show of Stephanie and other crap so I won't feel as if I missed anything. With my luck though Kurt Angle and someone like RVD will put on a fucking clinic, because somebody hates me.
I agree with the "why don't we have more wrestling instead of skits" comments. I promise you, I would rather see Prime Time Wrestling jobber-squash matches between Big Show and El Conquistador and Undertaker vs. Sandy Beach than a bunch of damn skits. Whatever happened to plain ol' jobber matches, anyway? AND THE TAG ROPE!? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TAG ROPE!?!

Well the issue of crowd reaction is usually one of geography. Where were they last night? New England? Because outside of Boston and New York, the New England crowds are usually non responsive to all but the biggest names.
