Monday Night Raw
Monday February 12, 2007
Raw kicks off tonight with Chris Jericho making his way down the ramp. Jericho says that he has some important things to talk about here tonight but first off he needs to apologize to one man and one man only…Shawn Michaels! Jericho says he knows that HBK and himself have a troubled history but now he’s past that. Jericho says that he’s regained the trust of the Jerichoholics back (minor pop) and that now he’s ready to move on past those days. Jericho says that it was his fault he wasn’t at Smackdown and for that he wants to apologize. Jericho calls out HBK but instead out comes Chuck Palumbo. Palumbo hasn’t been seen since he hit Jericho backstage. Palumbo walks down challenging the character of his former friend. Palumbo says that he knew Jericho was always like this…a little bitch! Palumbo says that when he was backing Jericho up he knew that he (Palumbo) would always have to do the dirty work. Chuck asks Jericho what is he going to do now that he doesn’t have him in his corner at WrestleMania? Chuck keeps on provoking Jericho for a bit before the music of Randy Orton sounds across the arena. Orton walks down the ramp challenging the character of HBK as well. Orton reminds the fans that Jericho “let his friend HBK” get laid out in the ring twice in one week! Orton says he never did that to Edge and that he never will! Orton reminds Jericho about their big tag match this Sunday and how Jericho probably will “back out” once again. Orton teases Jericho for a bit longer before out comes the Raw GM Jonathan Coachman. Coach says that he’s tired of hearing it between these two. Coach books a big tag match tonight with Randy Orton teaming with Chuck Palumbo to take on Chris Jericho in a Handicap Match! And if HBK interferes Coach has talked to Smackdown GM JBL and HBK will be STRIPPED of his title shot at WrestleMania 23!
Raw kicks off tonight-in big fashion with the Number One Contender’s Tag Team Battle Royal. The match features the teams of Cade and Murdoch, The Highlanders, MNM, Cryme Tyme, Val Venis and Viscera, and Matt Striker and Test! All six teams go at it for a while and the first team to be gone from the match happens to be Val and Big Vis after Test greets Val with a Big Boot to the head sending Venis over the ropes! The refs have to get Viscera to get out of the ring since only one team member has to be eliminated. Shortly after the Highlanders find themselves gone after Rory is dumped out of the ring thanks to a big clothesline from big Shad! A surprise elimination takes place next as Mercury and Nitro hit the Snapshot on Cade and dumped Cade out of the ring bringing it down to three teams in MNM, Cryme Tyme, and Striker and Test! Shortly after the elimination of Cade and Murdoch, Nitro gets dumped out surprisingly thanks to the power of Test! This leaves the match down to the two teams in which we see Cryme Tyme isolate Test in the corner with double-teaming before JTG and Shad team up to hit the G-9! Cryme Tyme both grab Striker throwing him out of the ring and earning a title shot next week here on Raw! JTG and Shad celebrate their wins as we cut backstage to see Burke and Benjamin watching on TV not looking too much impressed.
Shortly after this we head backstage to see Ric Flair being interviewed. Todd asks Ric about his two big losses the past week and Ric says that yes he has had a few rough weeks. But Ric says that this week will be even better because he’s going to make that no good son of a gun…Charlie Haas tap out in the middle of the ring. Flair says that he’s been betrayed many times but he feels this one might have hurt the most. Flair says that for someone to turn on the WOOO! Limousine ridin’, jet flyin’, wheelin’ and dealin’, kiss stealin’ son of a gun! WOOO! Is crazy! And now Flair will show Haas this Sunday just how much of a “submission specialist he really is” WOOOOOO!!!
After the break our second match of the night takes place as Umaga goes one on one with the Big Red Machine Kane! Kane is making a special appearance from Smackdown tonight and these two men put on a decent match in the ring. Nothing really special comes out of it and of course it ends in controversy whenever Batista runs down to the ring and spears the living hell out of Kane! Kane gets double teamed on by Batista and Umaga until the lights go out! Batista and Umaga ditch the ring now as Estrada helps lead Umaga back up the ramp! Batista and Umaga turn around to see flames burst up after a big strike of lightning hits the stage! Batista and Umaga look at the flames behind them as Kane sits up in the ring and Undertaker is behind him! The Brothers of Destruction are both kneeling right now doing their signature pose as we head to a commercial.
After the break we come back to see Triple H being interviewed via satellite. It is presumed he is not here tonight but of course all of the fans know how these segments work! Anyways JR and King question Triple H about Kurt Angle screwing him over last week and Hunter says that Angle will get what is coming to him in due time. See Triple H doesn’t play these games and he is already pissed that he is not main eventing WrestleMania AGAIN this year! Hunter says he’s not going to put up with this crap anymore and he has one person to blame for it…Kurt Angle! Hunter says that he’s sat back for too long without saying or doing something but he feels now is the time! Hunter says that next week here on Raw…he’s got a surprise for Kurt Angle! JR and King speculate on what the surprise is but nobody knows as we head to a commercial.
Back in the ring the third match of the night takes place as its Charlie Haas against…Ric Flair’s son Reid Flair! Reid gets a decent ovation since he’s training right now in OVW but Haas works over Reid for a bit. Reid does get a bit of action in as he rolled Haas up briefly but only got a two count! The fans were excited as this young man could have almost up set Haas. But shortly after that Haas pretty much snaps just throwing Reid around everywhere with the three German Suplexes! Haas quickly locks in the Haas of Pain forcing Reid to tap out but he won’t let go! Haas is yelling like a madman until Ric Flair comes running down the ramp! Haas of course ditches and then slides into the crowd as we see Ric attend to his son Reid in the ring.
Backstage after the match Maria interviews Carlito. Maria asks Carlito about his match this Sunday at No Way Out to which Carlito responds with that he will be the one walking out with the Intercontinental title. Carlito reminds the fans that he is a former Intercontinental champion and the coolest of them all! Carlito says that the fans have seen a recent attitude change in Carlito but Carlito is back to himself now! Carlito closes it off with spitting the apple at Maria as she wipes it off her face as we head to a commercial break.
The fourth match of the night pits Carlito taking on Eugene in a quick squash match. Carlito runs right over Eugene before finishing him off with the Back Cracker! Carlito gets the mic once again talking trash about Jeff Hardy before we see Hardy hit the ring! Hardy rolls into the ring before kicking Carlito in the sternum and dropping him with the Twist of Fate! Hardy makes his way to the top rope climbing up for the Swanton but Carlito rolls out of the ring! Hardy stares down Carlito from the top rope as Carlito backs his way up the ramp.
Backstage John Cena is shown standing in front of the camera. Cena talks about how Finlay has been a thorn in his side for the past few weeks or so. Cena says that this Sunday he puts a halt to that whenever he runs right through Finlay’s representative MVP. Cena says that MVP is a wannabe baller and nothing more. Cena laughs at how he states he makes the most money and just laughs at a few more general things about MVP. Cena says that all of that aside this Sunday he puts his feelings and thoughts aside and goes out there to do one thing…whip some ass!
After the break the WrestleMania 23 video airs and shortly after we see an announcement stating that the first Class of 2007 Hall of Fame member will be announced next week here on Raw!
We get a brief divas match to hype up the Battle Royal this Sunday that sees Mickie James take on Melina in a rematch from two weeks ago. Mickie got a pinfall win last week over Melina but this week Melina returns the favor after she drops Mickie with the Inverted Split Leg Bulldog onto Mickie. Melina gets the win and celebrates stating that she’ll be the next Women’s champion! Melina teases all of the fans until we see all of the divas run down the ramp. Maria tackles Melina as we see all 10 divas from Raw, Smackdown, and ECW that will be in the match going at it right now. The Women’s Champion Victoria walks onto the ramp watching her competition beat one another up before Sunday.
Backstage we see Randy Orton and Chuck Palumbo talking. Orton tells Palumbo that he knows he has a troubled history with Jericho but that tonight he needs to leave all things aside for Randy to take care of. Orton asks Palumbo if he understands and Palumbo nods his head! Orton walks off as Palumbo looks at him as if he was crazy!
The main event takes place as the WWE champion Randy Orton teams with Chuck Palumbo to take on Chris Jericho in a Handicap Match. King and JR constantly hype that if HBK interferes then he will lose his title match at WrestleMania thanks to Smackdown GM JBL! We notice halfway through the match that the World-Heavyweight Champion Edge makes his way down to the ring. Palumbo and Orton are dominating throughout the match right now before Palumbo was able to distract the referee! Edge ran into the ring charging at Jericho who was getting back onto his feet and Edge connected with a Spear but it was to his friend Randy Orton! Edge looks at what he did before he rolls out of the ring grabbing his title and panicking. Palumbo turns around right into the Codebreaker from Jericho! Jericho throws Palumbo over covering and getting the win! Jericho rolls out of the ring as we hear the music of HBK ring throughout the crowd. HBK meets Jericho at the top of the ramp as they have a small stare down but eventually turn towards the ring and watch on as Edge helps Orton back to his feet as Raw comes to an end.
