As most WWE fans know by now, the Ultimate Warrior passed away earlier this week at the tender age of 54. Ultimate Warrior was one of the most popular wrestlers in the history of the WWE, so the promotion will be honoring him tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw.

No word yet from the WWE on what the tribute will entail, but there's a good chance it will include a lengthy video presentation featuring highlights of his pro wrestling career. The WWE has been tight-lipped on the tribute, so wrestling fans will have to tune in to WWE Monday Night Raw tonight to find out exactly what they have in store.

Besides the Ultimate Warrior tribute, tonight's episode of WWE Monday Night Raw is expected to feature several key storylines, including hype regarding a feud between The Shield and Evolution. It's also expected that Jack Swagger and Cesaro will continue their feud tonight on "Raw."

Also on tonight's WWE Monday Night Raw card, AJ Lee will be looking to reclaim her WWE Divas Championship Belt from Paige, the 21-year-old who took it from her last week. AJ Lee vs Paige hasn't been officially announced, but that bout is likely for tonight's event.

In other matters, John Cena still has a score to settle with Bray Wyatt, especially after the two went toe-to-toe at Wrestlemania. Cena and Wyatt are expected to rematch at Extreme Rules, so tonight might be a good night to hype their continued feud.

Lastly, WWE Universe has been itching to find out when Sting will make his debut with the promotion. Unfortunately, it won't be tonight. Sting hasn't officially signed on with the WWE, as details are still being worked out. Sting may appear in the WWE later this year, but not on tonight's WWE Monday Night Raw.

Sting, who spent most of his wrestling career under the TNA banner, is the most popular wrestler to have never appeared in the WWE. He recently became a free agent, so many wrestling fans expected him to come over to the WWE. Time will tell how the situation pans out.
