Re: WWE 2006 by Renegade™
Thanks for all the comments on SmackDown!, they are much appreciated. I will return as many reviews as I can when you guys post new shows/PPV's.
Following the passing of Chris Benoit, it is expected his place at Survivor Series will be taken by the man whom he defeated on SmackDown! this past Friday in JBL. This completes the SmackDown! team line-up for their Inter Promotional Match with Team RAW.
In the coming months, Goldberg & Sting are both expected to leave the company after neither could reach a deal with officials over new contracts. When they do leave however is still up in the air.
Dave Batista has also requested a leave of absence, which has been granted. Batista has been working with an injured shoulder since September and it is well known that he requires surgery to fix the problem fully, with a layoff time of up to a year for recovery.
And finally The New Age Outlaws will make their final WWE appearances at Survivor Series, following their decision to leave the company for a "fresh direction".

Mick Foley has added a RAW brand only Survivor Series Tag Match as AJ Styles will captain a team to face a team captained by Matt Striker

Team Striker: Matt Striker(CAPT), Test, Chris Masters & WGTT
Meanwhile SmackDown!'s brand only Survivor Series Tag Match has had it's numbers filled as Team Hardy & Team Kennedy are finalised

Team Kennedy: Mr. Kennedy(CAPT), Finlay, Muhammad Hassan, Gregory Helms & William Regal
WWE RAW preview for 10/27/06
This Monday's broadcast will kick off with Vince McMahon and the entire WWE locker room out at ringside to mourn the passing of Chris Benoit, who passed away on Saturday morning. This will include a brief speech from Vince, along with a ten bell salute and a video package highlighting Benoit's tremendous career in wrestling
In a tribute to Chris Benoit, 8 of his closest friends will partake in a huge 8 Man Tag Match as World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle will team with Rhyno, the returning Rey Mysterio and also Chavo Guerrero to take on Chris Jericho, Finlay, and former WWE superstars and Radicalz team mates of Benoit in Dean Malenko & Perry Saturn whom both return for a one night special appearance
Also this week on RAW, Mick Foley will request that his RAW superstars be ready to be called to ringside again later in the show as he announces the men that will represent Team RAW at Survivor Series. Which five men will Mick Foley select, and will the intentions from Christian & Monty Brown last week be taken into Foley's considerations?
With Triple H set to defend his WWE Title at Survivor Series against one of the following; The Rock, Rob Van Dam, Kane, Edge or John Cena, what can we expect from the six men this week after last week's crazy altercation's, in which Kane demolished all five men, and then later in the main event, RVD stopped Edge from winning when he nailed the Van Daminator, allowing Triple H & The Rock to pick up the victory? Whatever happens, you can expect that each of the challengers will want to get their message across that they are the one taking the belt off Triple H come Survivor Series
Plus, after they cheaply retained their Tag Titles last week, Cade & Jindrak will have to defend them against Cryme Tyme again this week, with the remaining RAW tag teams at ringside, acting as enforcer's to make sure there is no foul play and that the match is won fairly
Also, with Team Styles vs Team Striker also announced earlier today for Survivor Series, what can we expect when the two captains collide as AJ Styles takes on Matt Striker in a Non-Title match
Plus, Trish Stratus will team with Mickie James to take on Lita and Victoria in Diva's Tag Action
All this and more on Monday Night RAW, 9/8pm central on USA Network
RAW up midweek.
