WWE Monday Night Raw Preview- 22/8/05- Hampton, Virginia
Twenty Four hours removed from a wild night at Summerslam, the superstars of Monday Night Raw head to Hampton on a night where the fallout and consequences will come into effect after a controversial and emotional night in Washington D.C.
Last night saw Batista retain the World Heavyweight Title, defeating Kane as Shawn Michaels did the ‘right thing’ and called it how he saw it, going against Eric Bischoff’s wishes and counting the Big Red Machine down. Bischoff promised there would be hell to pay if Michaels didn’t follow his orders and the Raw GM’s ‘Personal Employee’ will head to Hampton knowing that his job is hanging in the balance. What will Eric Bischoff have in store for the Heartbreak Kid? Will Batista have anything to say to the Showstopper? And will it be the last we see of Kane in his pursuit for gold?
The career of the legendary Ric Flair came crashing down last night as Flair was defeated by Christian in a dramatic contest. Christian had vowed going into the event that he would once and for all put away the Nature Boy and last night he lived up to his word. Flair bid farewell to the fans last night in an emotional goodbye that had us all gripped. With Naitch now out of the picture, will Christian live true to his word and really become the ‘Leader of a New Generation’? Is Captain Charisma now destined to rise to the top or will there be another roadblock in his way?
We crowned a new Intercontinental Champion last night as Shelton Benjamin finally reclaimed the gold he lost to Muhammad Hassan at Backlash. Benjamin and Hassan put on a gruelling contest and there was no doubting the role Benjamin’s partner played in the match, Charlie Haas. It was Haas who indeed earned Benjamin his title shot and it was again Haas who kept his partner in the contest, distracting Hassan and allowing Benjamin time to survive following what appeared to be a match ending Ankle Lock. How will Benjamin celebrate his title victory? Will he now know just how influential his partner was? And will the former champion and his Entity be in hot pursuit of his lost championship?
Edge retained his Money in the Bank contract, defeating Chris Jericho in controversial fashion last night. Y2J will no doubt be seeking revenge tonight in Hampton after Edge used his Money in the Bank briefcase to smash Jericho’s skull in. Will Edge get his comeuppance tonight or will the Rated R Superstar dodge Chris Jericho’s proverbial bullet?
Mr.Kennedy continues to thrive for competition and was promised last night at Summerslam that he would have his wish granted. Tonight Kennedy will be in action, will he face the challenge he so desperately desires?
All of this and much, much more will be in store LIVE tonight on Raw! Tune in, we promise, you will NOT wanna miss it!!
