The WWE "Monday Night Raw" live stream and televised show on Monday will feature continued buildup towards two major pay-per-view events. In December will be the WWE "Roadblock" 2016 event, while January will bring the "Royal Rumble" 2017 edition. Both events will have major implications as the road to "WrestleMania" continues to be paved. As of last week, several developments came on the weekly professional Wrestling program that should continue on Monday's episode. Will there be any major surprises on the way for the televised and live streaming WWE show?

'Royal Rumble' entries

One man has already entered the 2017 edition of the "Royal Rumble." On the previous Raw, Bill Goldberg came to the ring after his huge victory over Brock Lesnar at "Survivor Series." Goldberg let the entire WWE universe know that he'd be the first superstar entering the Rumble match and that everyone is "next." It's clear he intends to win the big match and headline "WrestleMania" 33.

However, Goldberg is the only one who has entered the match so far. Will more superstars announce their entry on the newest episode? Over the years this annual match has featured at least 30 superstars involved, so expect more names to be officially entered in the weeks ahead.

'Roadblock' match card?

The "Raw" champions are likely to be in action on the next pay-per-view. It's been rumored for weeks now that WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens will defend his title against U.S. Champion Roman Reigns. In addition, Sasha Banks has demanded a re-match with Women's Champion Charlotte. She'll get a shot on "Raw" at the title, and then there's also Bayley who wants a piece of Charlotte. That makes the women's title picture even more interesting.

The tag team champions New Day will have their belts on the line again. On the latest episode, they'll defend the titles against Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson.

Can New Day overtake the tag team championship record set by Demolition or will Gallows and Anderson become brand new champs?

Fans will be watching with anticipation to see how the various title pictures unfold. "Roadblock" will follow the "SmackDown" pay-per-view called "TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs" in December, as both will lead to the "Rumble."

How to watch WWE Raw live

Every week, the WWE "Monday Night Raw" program airs live on the USA Network starting at 8 p.m.

Eastern Time. Fans can watch on their cable or satellite TV provider via the USA channel starting at that time. To watch the show live streaming online, cable or satellite customers can go to the USA Network's official website and log in to see the feed, or use any compatible USA apps.

For those viewers who don't have cable or satellite TV with USA but want an option to watch "Raw" for free, consider the Sling TV service. The subscription-based service offers a free week trial and includes the USA channel among its line-up. This will allow fans to see a free episode of not only "Raw" but also "SmackDown" in the coming week.

Keep in mind that WWE Network also has live pre-show and post-show specials, but requires that viewers have a subscription to the service.
