Bischoff has a "big surprise"...which usually means some one-sided match that we're supposed to be thrilled about but never are.

I think this has something to do with the signing of a major talent. Maybe the start of the Austin, Goldberg, or _______ introduction?

I don't wish to see a tag title switch the night after the Rumble, but I am liking where the Morley-Dudleys angle is going so far. Notice I said so far...

I fully expect nothing to result from Kane throwing out RVD...but it would be cool to see RVD lean more toward his old ECW "heel" cocky character -- we saw a glimpse of it at the RAW-X show when he took all credit for the Match of the Year. Kane is the heel by default, if they have a problem...and I would like to see a character change by Kane. The dude is just bland as can be now that he's "more human."

Both Bischoff and Stephanie said they have a big surprise. I figure it's the same thing. They both think they have Austin.

Hopefully Morley can pick up a tag team partner, I don't know who though.

RVD's heel character will just make him more of a face, IMO.

1. Bischoff is going to be fired in 23 days, because he lost the major spot at Royal Rumble. I think that will be his death nail when Vince comes back.

2. Shane will pop up again and says he just scouting around. A cool spot would be him measuring Eric's office with tape to fit his desk.

3. Austin. After the crowd go turn on Stiener and HHH, I fully expect Austin on Raw. I also think the Goldberg contract is now null and void. After the NWO and Steiner, we see that WCW's main eventers really did suck.

4. Kane or RVD heel turn. I do agree RVD heel is muck like Rock or Austin heel, it works in the short run, but the fans go back in two months. Kane would be cool though.

5. An insane match. Now that the Royal Rumble is over for Smackdown or at least it looked so in my eyes, Eric should bust out a Rumble tomorrow night for Raw. Winner gets a shot at the belt at Wrestlemania could save his job.

6. Stiener is removed from the main event spot. He will start a program with either Booker T or some random name out of a hat, because he is run is over.

7. HHH will cut another 20 minute boring ass promo. Either Steiner or Austin will come out to save the day if its Stiener, we get the rematch if its Austin we start the road to Wrestlemania.

8. HBK + Jericho. This fued is going to be red hot until Shawn finds out he has to wrestle in Montreal. I say Jerich destroys him before No Way Out, so he can work a program with Stiener or get the belt.

9. Dudlies get screwed. If HHH won't job then someone has to after a PPV. Morley does something were the Dudlies get screwed out of the titles and far less superior team wins it ie 3 minute Warning or Regal and Storm.

10. The direction of Raw will change one way or another. Vince heard from the fans tonight and if he has any brains at all, he'll do something about it. Its time for longer matches with guys who can wrestle ie RVD, Jericho, Kane, HHH, Booker T, Tommy, Lance and the Tough Enough kids. Smackdown got all the love tonight for all the right reasons. They may not wait 30 days to fire Eric or wait to Wrestlemania to job the belt off HHH, it may come tomorrow. Either way, a shift is coming.

A Fan- Only the WWE, where you can have the worst and best match of the year beside one another, I love this show.

A new direction for RAW? I love those angles. We've had about 5 this year and every week is the same old format. BRING ON ANOTHER ONE!

Maybe we'll get a return of Nitro is Construction errr nWo Nitro. It was like Bob Villa got the book or something that night.

I don't think McMahon saying on RAW that he's giving Eric 30 days or he's fired thing was a "shoot" (some seem confused about that - not in this thread though). Eric's just a character like Stacy, only with larger breasts. Since firing him wouldn't really change the show's direction at all, it would be a waste as he's a great on-screen character to set-up matches, as opposed to Shane McMahon who's boring as a face... and a heel...

Give Eric a little more credit than that. At least if you spot Eric the C-A he can spell cat, where as if you spot C-A-T to Stacy she thinks it spells Yippee.

Just wanted to throw this possibility out there, as far as surprises.

Bischoff announces that he has somehow signed Rock away from Smackdown. Then Stephanie announces that she's signed Austin away from RAW and has convinced him to return.

(Yes, I know that there's a major storyline flaw, considering that the contracts are suppose to be frozen. But WWE usually doesn't let logic get into the way if they want to do something.)

I'm pessimistic enough to think that the bombshell will be the long-awaited return of Kevin Nash. Although after last night, if Vince & Co. haven't learned about the risks of relying on old, out-of-shape, frequently injured guys ...

I really hope they turn RVD heel, although I don't see it happening. I think the RVD/Jeff Hardy match is just there to fill time. RVD dumped Hardy at the Rumble, why not have them fight? But RVD is awesome as the cocky heel. I thought his interviews were awesome when he was a heel in ECW, so maybe that's the key.

"Money is thicker than blood!" -Eric Bischoff at last night's Royal Rumble

That quote leads me to believe Uncle Eric's opening his wallet to bring someone back. The top two candidates would have to be either Goldberg or Rocky! Imagine Rocky coming back as a face, but in reality only coming back to wrestling for Eazy E's money. HEEL TURN, BABY!

That would be great, the Rock could annouce he needs money to turn down movies, and the McMahons only gave praise, whereas Eric gives the green.

How about bringing Benoit to Raw. He is as over as anybody and seems to be the man out of the picture for Angle and Brock. Bring him to Raw and have him challenge Triple H and make HHH submit in the middle of the ring with Earl Hebner calling for the bell in the next PPV in MONTREAL.

You want to shake things up, you want to change Raw put some decent workers on top. Benoit beats HHH in the PPV. HHH takes a step back for gods sake and goes to mid-card and Steiner can go fly a kite for all I care.

When No Way Out comes along, Bischoff days are up, you could have a few possibilities. How about Bischoff/Benoit team going into WrestleMania with Bischoff talking about how Benoit the true World Champion who never lost the title could be a great team. It looks like a heel team but depending how Shane acts Eric could become a fan favourite

But I wonder what a Benoit/Bischoff team would be a heel or face. Heel seems like a logical choice but I feel a little uncomfortable changing Benoit status ever few months, but the possibilities of a heel Benoit vs. a Booker T or even a Austin for WrestleMania is more interesting then any tired Triple H match they are probably planning... The possibilities of a face Benoit seems more limited on Raw, but an ultra anti-wrestling Mr. Entertainment heel The Rock might be very interesting as well.

Vince want's to shake things up THIS will shake things up

Damn, I got most of my ten right on this week's Raw, maybe I should play the lotto, Wednesday? I was wrong about the Bischoff's insane match and RVD/Kane heel.
