Thanks in large part to the presence of Sting and Brock Lesnar, WWE has a little bit of momentum heading into Wrestlemania. The latest episode of Monday Night Raw saw an increase in viewership. While a lot of fans online have been critical of the awkward ending to the show, the belief is that they are still going to be tuning into the pay per view this upcoming Sunday. Numbers from the next episode of Raw will be especially telling.

Since it is the final episode of Monday Night Raw before Wrestlemania, WWE wanted to kick things off with a big bang. They decided to turn to one of the greatest performers that the industry has ever seen. It has now been revealed that Sting will finally speak tonight. Unless things change backstage, it is expected to be the first segment of the evening. He obviously will address his upcoming match with Triple H.

A rather interesting report has surfaced in regards to the audience that were attendance at the latest episode of Monday Night Raw in Des Moines. It is being said that security was taking away signs that were in favor of Daniel Bryan at the gate. When asked about the reasoning, security stated that there were already too many of the same signs in the arena already. As expected, WWE officials have denied the allegations.

Next week, Monday Night Raw is taking place in Los Angeles. The event will be the go home episode right before Wrestlemania, and tickets are now completely sold out. Management has already secured Brock Lesnar for the evening. They are now targeting Sting and Undertaker for appearances as well because they know that the hype for Wrestlemania is not nearly at the level that they were hoping it to be.

WWE was hoping that word would spread through the internet wrestling community that Sting was showing up on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. They were hoping to receive a bit of a boost in viewership. Unfortunately for management, though, that boost ended up being quite minimal. There were only approximately 100,000 extra viewers this week. That comes as a disappointment because Wrestlemania is just around the corner.
