Re: Being The Booker
*Not really my place to say this, as it's Snap that writes Smackdown now, but Paul London has been pushed as an equal to everyone on Smackdown for the past year, so it shouldnt come as a surprise that he's getting an actual feud with a top tier player*

Official Raw Preview:
Only two weeks remain until the WWE hits PPV again, and with the Backlash card beginning to take shape, Washington DC hosts another blistering edition of Monday Night Raw.
Two Backlash challengers face each other, as Edge, who challenges Rey Mysterio for the Money in the Bank contract in an I Quit Match on April 30th, takes on the #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Championship, Shelton Benjamin. With both men looking to build momentum ahead of Backlash, victory is a must on Raw.
And, while Edge is in action, Mister Money in the Bank, Rey Mysterio has been ordered to take Monday night off, with Eric Bischoff determined to make sure there isnt a repeat of last weeks uncontrollable brawl that took place between Edge and Mysterio.
After seeing his Raw debut go terribly wrong last week, Rob Conway will attempt to rectify that first impression, as he has been granted ring time to present his own talk show. The name has not yet been announced, nor has a guest, but 'The Con Man' has promised the most entertaining show in WWE history this Monday. What exactly does Conway have to offer??
Meanwhile, with DX set to face The Horsemen in a historic tag team match at Backlash, another singles match has been signed for this Monday Night, as the two leaders, and founders of the legendary groups go head in head in a dream match scenario, as 'HBK' Shawn Michaels faces 'The Nature Boy' Ric Flair. Last week, a mix up between DX helped Nick Dinsmore score a victory over Michaels - this time though, Eric Bischoff has demanded that all outside parties will be barred from ringside, meaning the best man will win this Monday.
Despite two huge matches, Eric Bischoff has refused to rest of those, and has added a third major match to this weeks show, which has all the ingredients for an electric showdown, featuring the two #1 Contenders to the World Title, and The Champ himself, John Cena. It'll be Captain Charisma, Christian, teaming with his Problem Solver, Tyson Tomko, to face Brock Lesnar and John Cena. With Christian, Lesnar and Cena all set to do battle in two weeks at Backlash, will the tensions boil over, and can Brock Lesnar manage to co-exist with John Cena as a unit??
Find out on Monday Night, LIVE on the USA Network.
I'll be posting Raw tomorrow.
