WWE Monday Night Raw Live Stream : The Authority Attacks Cena, Ambrose, and Reign

WWE's Monday Night Raw takes place tonight, January 12, live at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. Raw will begin at 8:00 pm E.T.

John Cena, Roman Reigns and his former 'The Shield' member Dean Ambrose are all expected to be confronted by 'The Authority' on tonight's episode.
Last week, Cena's former Survivor Series allies (aka Team Cena) Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan and Ryback were all fired by 'The Authority' leaders Triple H and Stephanie McMahon on 'John Cena Appreciation Night'. Two weeks ago, John Cena reluctantly agreed to allow 'The Game' and 'The Billion Dollar Princess' to return to power after 'Mr. Money in the Bank' Seth Rollins threatened to 'Curb Stomp' Edge after the retired 'Rated R Superstar' was attacked along with his former tag team partner Christian. Also on tonight's episode, Ambrose and Reigns will join forces yet again in order to face their former 'The Shield' member Seth Rollins and his allies 'The Big Show' and Kane. 

Last week on Raw, Triple H decreed that the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match between John Cena and Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble would be a Triple Threat Match featuring Mr. Money in the Bank, Seth Rollins. This should add an interesting wrinkle to the title match, as Rollins' presence freshens up what would be the third match between Cena and Lesnar in six pay-per-views. Plus, Rollins already has the Money in the Bank contract, so he could theoretically lose the match and still walk out with the title after cashing in his contract. Or, he could win the title outright and have both the title and the briefcase.

As for the Royal Rumble match itself, the situation remains murky. Daniel Bryan's return has added some more intrigue to the 30-man match, as it makes Roman Reigns' presumed victory a bit less certain. The direction of the Rumble match is still very much up in the air with just two weeks left before the pay-per-view. Tonight's episode of Raw should do a lot of work toward building up the Royal Rumble. Could we learn of some new entrants into the match?
