Re: WWE Unleash the Fury
Raw Preview for Monday August 7, 2006
Greensboro, North Carolina
The number one contender to the WWE Championship, Chris Jericho, was upset last week in a one on one match against the recently new superstar on Raw, Sabu. This week, Jericho has asked for a rematch but to prove that last week was a fluke, for it to be under Extreme Rules! This means that anything can go and well, this is certainly in Sabu's playing field. Can Jericho back up his words whenever he takes on Sabu or will the ECW Original get the best of Jericho?
Shawn Michaels showed up late last week on Raw prior to making his announcement and what he had no clue of was what Edge did to Ric Flair earlier in the night. Edge came down after Flair's match with Randy Orton and beat Ric Flair to a bloody pulp. Michaels didn't find this out until Raw went off the air. Michaels this week has asked for a match against Edge to try and get some redemption for his friend and tag partner at SummerSlam in the Nature Boy.
An Xtreme Win
Jeff Hardy was able to overcome the odds last week as he walked away with a huge win over Test, Booker T, and Carlito in the Number One Contender's match. Hardy has the week off this week from the ring but however, his opponent for SummerSlam will be in action. Hardy will be looking to scout his opponent for SummerSlam. What has caused the recent attitude change in Shelton Benjamin?
Melina's win last week over Maria was huge in Melina's books but this week, she finds herself against a "huge" opponent. Her oppenent is a former Women's Champion in Mickie James. We've been told that tonight, the current Women's Champion, Victoria, has been banned from ringside to keep this a fair and even match. Can Melina score another huge upset in her upstart career in the ring or will Mickie roll right over Melina on her journey to regaining the title?
For all of this and more, tune into Raw this Monday on the USA Network at 9/8 ET.
