Hey WWE... You do realize that you only have TWO Monday Night RAW episodes before the Royal Rumble 2012 event, right? I'm sorry, but based on the booking heading into the show, I'm just not feeling it...

Maybe I'm just not informed on the matches... *Goes to for Match Listing* Direct Copy & Paste of Royal Rumble 2012 matches, 1/16/2012
30-Man Royal Rumble Match
WWE Champion CM Punk vs. Dolph Ziggler (Special Guest Referee John Laurinaitis)

Oh wait, I AM informed on the matches scheduled for Royal Rumble. The WWE has ONLY booked CM Punk vs. Dolph Ziggler with the stupid "Special Guest Referee" gimmick. ZERO matches booked for the World Heavyweight Title (Daniel Bryan), Intercontinental Title (Cody Rhodes), United States Title ("ratings scapegoat" Zack Ryder), and the lovely WWE Tag Titles are changing on Houseshows...

Speaking of the Tag Titles, we're getting a Tag Title rematch between Primo/Epico vs. Kofi Kingston/Evan Bourne tonight on RAW. Could you actually poll the WWE audience and even ask them who Primo/Epico are, let alone who they defeated for the the Tag Titles? WWE better introduce to the RAW viewers who on earth Primo/Epico are, but I suspect they'll just advertise their hot manager, Rosa Mendes, instead... Not that I blame them, but WWE's Tag Team division is on Life Support and it's sad.

Here we go with a 2-week HARD SELL of the 2nd Best Pay Per View of the year. I figure we'll matches or a mini-Rumble for the 1st and 30th spots in the Rumble, with something like Kane vs. John Cena and maybe Big Show vs. Daniel Bryan ending up on the show. WWE might actually have Zack Ryder to hold him off the Royal Rumble, scapegoating him for RAW's weak ratings this past week when John Cena was also in those main event segments...

I'm probably too anal for saying that these events need better hype, preparation, and long-term plans... I guess I just wasn't made for these times...
