WWE.com - HOMEPAGE - Raw Preview (29th October))
29th October 2007
DID VINCE SCREW THE GAME?
It would be naďve to say that Mr. McMahon and Triple H have had their problems in the past, but it seems that it is more heated between them now than it ever has been. Hard to believe for sure, but it seems the Chairman of the Board is determined to keep the WWE Championship away from Triple H. For some reason, Mr. McMahon has consistently placed obstacles in The Game’s way over the last few weeks, and yet again, last week it was the King of Kings who came out on top after winning a handicap gauntlet match.
However, when it all looked to be going in his favour, Triple H missed out on facing Randy Orton for the WWE Championship last night at Cyber Sunday by 5%, according to his arch enemy. Mr. McMahon couldn’t wait to announce that fact to everyone inside the arena last night and especially Triple H. The question is, was it a fact, or was it just one more of Vince’s games? Triple H obviously thought so and went searching for him later on and told William Regal that he will be looking for answers tonight.
ORTON RETAINS THE GOLD
Randy Orton successfully retained his WWE Championship last night after overcoming an incredible effort from the fans favourite, CM Punk in what was a great match up. Punk came close to an upset on several occasions, but Orton pulled it out at the last to boost his own ego even further. Will we here from the champ tonight? With his ego, it would be strange if we didn’t!
The time is near!
Time for the Saviour!

KENNEDY LOSES. . . BUT IS HAPPY?!
In what was an amazing night, full of great matches and shocks, we had a combination of both as Jeff Hardy was one of all the defending champions to retain his title last night by overcoming Raw’s resident loudmouth, Mr. Kennedy in an unbelievable ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship. Both men had the fans on the edge of their seats all the way through, but ultimately it was Jeff who came out on top and with his title in hand. However, after the match, Kennedy revealed that he wasn’t disappointed as he lost in a ladder match not a wrestling match and that he has bigger fish to fry, the WWE Championship? Is he becoming a fantasist or does he mean business?
BATTLE ROYAL TO DETERMINE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER
After seeing Jeff’s victory last night, Elijah Burke & Santino Marella had an altercation, both claiming that they deserve to be the Intercontinental Champion. Not going unnoticed by Raw’s General Manager, William Regal has told WWE.com that there will be a Battle Royal this week to determine just who will become the number one contender at the Survivor Series. Burke & Marella will be joined in the action by several other Raw superstars including CM Punk, Cody Rhodes, Carlito & John Morrison. Don’t rule out a Smackdown superstar joining the fray with the Open House rules in place!
Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch overcame three weeks of defeats to The Extremists, Tommy Dreamer & Stevie Richards by finally beating them last night in an ECW Rules match. The champions came through at last and showed that they are not going to lie down and lose their titles without one hell of a fight. Also, Beth Phoenix successfully defended the Womens Championship against an unlucky Mickie James. Mickie put up an incredible effort, but just fell short as Phoenix proved her worth by just pulling through. However, these two will go at it tonight in tag team action when Mickie is partnered by the former Womens Champion Candice Michelle and Victoria teams up with Beth Phoenix.
CONFIRMED FOR THIS WEEK
Intercontinental Championship Number One Contendership Battle Royal
Mickie James & Candice Michelle vs Beth Phoenix & Victoria
