WWE RAW SuperShow makes it's return to Boston for Monday Night RAW on March 5 at 9:00 p.m. EDT (TV: USA), as the build up continues for WrestleMania 28, which is set to take place in less than one month on April 1 in Miami, FL.

Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson and Shawn Michaels are scheduled to highlight this Monday's episode RAW. The Rock is gearing up for his main event match against Massachusetts native John Cena in WrestleMania. Last week on RAW, The Rock returned to respond to Cena, who has criticized him for focusing too much on his movie career instead of the WWE. Cena interrupted Rock's return (who didn't see that coming) and called him out once more, adding fuel to the fire.

Michaels, a longtime friend of Triple-H, will return to talk about The Game's assertion that he is better than Michaels, and some fireworks should fly between the now retired wrestler and the Chief Operation Officer of the WWE. Triple-H will face the Undertaker in a Hell In A Cell match at WrestleMania 28. Taker was originally scheduled to appear in Boston, but he is no longer listed on the card for the evening's events.

As for the actual wrestling, WWE Champion CM Punk will join forces with Cena for a tag team match against Chris Jericho, the No. 1 contender for the WWE Championship and Punk's opponent at WrestleMania, and Kane, the Big Red Monster who has been feuding with Cena over the past month, preaching his message to Cena of "embracing the hate."

Plenty to watch for on Monday night, and who knows if there will be some surprises, too.
