The 1283rd edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live on Christmas Day, from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL. The final RAW of 2017 was sure to have plenty of holiday cheer and what better way to celebrate Christmas than with the return of sixteen-time former World Champion John Cena? Making his first appearance in a WWE ring since he was on Team SmackDown LIVE at Survivor Series, how will John Cena mix things up on RAW?
