Re: WWE 2005: The Aftermath of WrestleMania 21
Before I begin I would just like to remind everyone that this is the final Raw match before Backlash. Hopefully Backlash will be up by next Wedensday by the latest. Trust me, the pay-per-view will be much more layed out than the shows are now. Also as a side note, thanks to everyone for their feedback. Anyway let's get to Raw!
A huge video from last year's England Raw is shown and then we cut to the opening video and pyro.
JR: The countdown to Backlash is just six days and with our final stop here in Manchester, England we welcome you to Monday Night Raw! Hello everyone I'm Jim Ross joined by always Jerry the king Lawler.
King: It feels great to be back here in England.
JR: That's right King and what a night we'll have for you tonight.
Eric Bischoff: Welcome everyone to England and Monday Night Raw. Being that Backlash is just six days away let's give the fans a preview of what will be in store for them. Shelton Benjamin who will be defending his intercontinental championship aganist Chris Benoit tonight will face Christian. Kane who wasn't here last week will do battle aganist Edge. The World Tag Team Championships will be on the line as Tajiri and William Regal faces simon dean and maven. Also Chris Jericho/Chris Benoit will face Batista and Shawn Michaels. So let's get raw under way.

King: That's right, JR. These fans are going not.
JR: There's a dropkick from Benjamin. Quick cover, 1-2 and Christian kicks out. Christian now sent to the middle of the ring and is rolled up. 2 count. Christian with a thumb to the eye nails a russian leg sweep, into a boston crab. benjamin may have to give up if he can't get to a rope. benjamin tries to switch and reverse, and no christian somehow is still able to keep the submission locked.
King: Come on Christian.
JR: My gawd, Christian can once again become the intercontinental champion.
The crowd is now trying to get behind shelton. and finally, shelton is able to get to the ropes. and now, the ref adminsters the 5 count. christian breaks it at 4, and yet goes right to the back of the ic champ.
King: this is a good strategy. he's softening him up, JR.
JR: you're right. And christian with a vertical suplex. My god, he can have him right here, 1-2 and no shelton is just able to kick out. Irish whip to the ropes, shelton ducks and nails christian, with a powerslam out of nowhere. Shelton and this crowd have come alive here on Raw.
King: You can feel it, JR.
JR: Shelton now sends Christian across the ropes and yes, the Stinger Splash.
And now the bulldog. Shelton is now going up on top, but wait Christian goes up on top and oh no a superplex, but somehow Benjamin lands on top of Christian, while somehow reserving his weight on to Christian.
