Verizon Hosts WWE RAW Supershow

Big Show and Sheamus (r) face off tonight

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) returns to the nation's capital tonight, with a special RAW Supershow at Verizon Center. Tonight's festivities get underway at 7:00 PM and feature a main event, tag team slobber-knocker (that's for you, J.R.) pitting John Cena and Sheamus against World Heavyweight Champion Big Show and Dolph Ziggler.

Nothing quite matches the experience of catching a WWE event live, yet alone at Verizon Center. Tickets are selling fast, but are still available at the Verizon box office or online at Tickets for WWE Raw Supershow are $20, $30, $45, $65 and $95 (not including additional fees.)

WWE star Randy Orton will likely make his return to the "squared circle" tonight: Orton suffered a shoulder injury at the Tribute to the Troops back on December 9th. Also slated for return is Mexican high-flyer Sin Cara, who should be fully recovered from an earlier (minor) knee surgery. WWE champion CM Punk is also scheduled to appear; and I wouldn't be surprised to see Vinny Mac (CEO Vince McMahon) show up as well.

Tonight's taping will be broadcast on WWE RAW on USA Network, this Monday night at 9:00 PM.
