WWE Monday Night Raw Preview- 6/6/05
Monday Night Raw is all set to provide a blockbuster show for all its fans in Baltimore tonight as we can reveal that a huge triple main event has been signed by Raw General Manager Eric Bischoff.
The first mega match up of the night will see two former bitter rivals face off as Chris Jericho goes one on one with Captain Charisma, Christian. Last week saw Christian as the guest on Jericho’s highlight reel with Jericho keen to send a message to his current rival Edge via Mr.Money in the Bank’s best friend. It was however, Edge who ended up looking for the last laugh as Christian set Jericho up for a sneak attack from behind by Edge, only for Y2J to see it coming and narrowly dodge the bullet as Edge escaped. The war of words was a brutal one as both men highlighted just how important their respective match ups were come Vengeance, when Christian meets the Nature Boy, Ric Flair, looking to make his mark in the ’big leagues’. Whilst Edge and Jericho do battle with many questioning Jericho‘s big match capabilities in recent months, Christian included. Tonight, the two men will simply let their actions do the talking.
The second part of our triple main event involves a man mentioned already, Edge. The Rated R Superstar looked to make his presence felt last week but just missed out on gaining even more momentum in his feud with Chris Jericho. Edge has gotten under Jericho’s skin ever since Wrestlemania and tonight, Eric Bischoff wants him to do the exact same job to Bischoff’s recent target, Shawn Michaels. After being hit with Sweet Chin Music more times than he’d have liked from the rebellious Showstopper, Bischoff had seen enough and laid down the challenge to Shawn Michaels for Vengeance. Michaels will go one on one with a superstar of the General Manager’s choosing and if the Heartbreak Kid can finally end his recent high profile losing streak and win, he gets a World title shot, if Bischoff’s superstar wins, HBK will become the property of our General Manager. With Bischoff announcing this match here tonight, you have to believe that he’s looking for any way he can to soften up Shawn Michaels.
The third and final part of tonight’s triple main event sees a six man tag team match as the World Heavyweight champion Batista teams up with one half of the World’s Greatest Tag Team, Shelton Benjamin and the World’s Largest Athlete, The Big Show to take on the team of Triple H, Intercontinental champion Muhammad Hassan and the ‘Protégé’ Mark Jindrak. All six men have huge issues with their opposite sides and it is no doubt going to all go down when they meet inside the squared circle. Will either Batista or Triple H get the upper hand as we continue to get closer and closer to their World title match at Vengeance? Or will it be a chance to shine for one of the other four men in this mammoth tag team match? Make sure to tune in and find out!
Confirmed for tonight’s Raw:
Chris Jericho vs. Christian
Shawn Michaels vs. Edge
Batista, Shelton Benjamin and Big Show vs. Triple H, Muhammad Hassan and Mark Jindrak
