-WWE Raw will be broadcast from Pittsburgh, Pa. at the Consol Energy Center. Undertaker, Triple H, and Brock Lesnar are advertised for tonight's show. The Rock is not advertised again this week, but he will be back for the last two shows heading into WrestleMania 29. John Cena is listed on the WWE events listing page, though there's no word yet as to whether he will appear on the actual television show. I assume he will, but they held him off the show last week while Rock was away. Join me for live coverage tonight beginning at 7:00 p.m. CT.
