Late-Breaking RAW/HOF News - Sunny's Speech Nixed

Here is one last WWE RAW and Hall of Fame preview.

Two matches have been announced for tonight's RAW broadcast on the USA Network.

A title match is on tap as Sheamus will defend the United States Championship against Daniel Bryan. The match was originally scheduled for the WrestleMania XXVII pay-per-view broadcast.

Randy Orton will team up with Rey Mysterio to take on CM Punk and Cody Rhodes.

John Cena is advertised to call out Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Johnson announced earlier today on Twitter that he would be making a 'special announcement'.

WWE Tough Enough personalities "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Booker T, Trish Stratus and Bill DeMott are scheduled to appear during the show.

Also slated is the television debut of Sin Cara.

Sunny's induction into the WWE Hall of Fame has been nixed from tonight's broadcast on the USA Network in favor of Drew Carey's since a promotional deal is in place to push his new series on GSN. The comedian's acceptance speech was significantly edited and all boos directed at him were edited out.

A highlight reel showcasing Sunny, Abdullah the Butcher and Bob Armstrong will air.

The special will open up with Dusty Rhodes inducting The Road Warriors and Paul Ellering into the WWE Hall of Fame.

The broadcast will close with the Hall of Fame induction of Shawn Michaels. His speech was heavily edited as it lasts approximately four minutes. Triple H's crack on Michaels "refusing to join the Hulk Hogan hair club," however, remains intact.

TNA Wrestling talent Ric Flair, who attended the event, is not shown during the broadcast.
