WWE celebrates 20 years of Monday Night RAW tonight
Reported by: Colin Vassallo, on Jan 14, 2013 - 4:09:47 PM

It all started in 1993, and 20 years later, Monday Night RAW is still going strong as tonight WWE will celebrate another important milestone for their flagship show 20 years in the making!

This past July RAW hit the 1,000th episode with a show that featured returns and surprises and while this show might not be as big in terms of former Superstars returning, the 20th anniversary episode will definitely be a special one regardless.

One of the highlights for tonight's show will be the Rock Concert with the recently returned Rock getting back with his guitar to entertain the millions. This time it won't be John Cena in his path but WWE champion CM Punk.

Kane and Daniel Bryan have been tag team champions for a while now and tonight Dr. Shelby, the man who brought them together, will be having his four month "follow up."

The Divas title will also be on the line as current champion Eve Torres defends against NXT season 3 winner Kaitlyn.

A lot has not been announced for RAW and with the show being in Texas, who knows, maybe some famous former WWE Superstars who are residents in the state will be dropping by!

RAW kicks off at 8PM EST on USA Network.
