WWE Monday Night Raw Preview- 1/8/05
We are now counting down the days until Summerslam as Monday Night Raw comes to you live from Detroit, Michigan with a mammoth showdown scheduled involving the Summerslam main event party.
Last week saw Batista escorted out of the arena by security only to return later in the night and take down Eric Bischoff’s army of guards as well as the quartet of William Regal, Mark Jindrak, Edge and the Big Red Machine, the number one contender to the World Title, Kane. As Batista looked to have cleaned house however, he was blindsided from out of nowhere by none other than Shawn Michaels. Following a dose of Sweet Chin Music, the Heartbreak Kid appeared to mutter the word ‘Payback’ to the Animal. Was this simply that? Payback on a Batistabomb suffered one week ago? Or was there more to it from the Special Guest Referee at Summerslam? Tonight Michaels and Batista will meet face to face inside the ring where the Showstopper will be allowed by his Personal Employer Eric Bischoff to explain himself. It is sure to be extremely heated as we head to Detroit!
Also scheduled for tonight is a huge tag team match as Chris Jericho will team with the World’s Largest Athlete, Big Show to take on the menacing duo of Edge and Mark Jindrak. It was confirmed several days ago that Edge will have to put his Money in the Bank contract on the line at Summerslam against Y2J and there is no doubting that Edge will be feeling the heat as we head towards the biggest party of the summer. Big Show meanwhile will be desperate to get his giant hands on Mark Jindrak. The Protégé continues to one up the former World Champion, will that continue here in Detroit or will Show and Jericho steal a march on their respective rivals?
Another big time match up has been signed for tonight, however we only know one participant and that man is Christian. Captain Charisma has his mind focused on August 21st when he has the opportunity to end the career of the Nature Boy, Ric Flair but tonight the former Intercontinental Champion has issued an open challenge, an open challenge with a catch. Christian has requested to face anybody from Ric Flair’s past to come to Detroit and face him one on one live on Raw. Who will step up and face the self proclaimed ‘Ric Flair of this generation‘? Will it be a blast from the past or will it be a more recent foe of the Nature Boy? We along with Christian are soon to find out!
After weeks of hype, weeks of anticipation, tonight will mark the debut of the cocky, loudmouth, Mr.Kennedy. Kennedy has been on our screens for several weeks, delivering damning verdicts on the majority of Raw’s roster, claming he’s here to entertain, that he’s here to become a star, that he’s coming to Raw to be a ‘game changer’. Will Kennedy live up to his word? We find out…tonight!
And finally, after two straight title defenses, tonight will mark the third consecutive week of Tag Team Title action as Bubba Ray and D-Von, the Dudley Boyz face the final test in their three week hurdle when they take on the dangerous duo of Daivari and Sonjay Dutt of the Arabian Entity. Will the Entity add the Tag Titles to Muhammad Hassan’s Intercontinental gold? Or will the Dudleyz prove once again why they’re still at the top of the food chain in the Tag Team division here on Raw?

Chris Jericho and Big Show vs. Edge and Mark Jindrak w/William Regal
