Wrestling News and Rumours
The biggest news of the week by far, was Stone Cold Steve Austin returning to the WWE as the General Manager of Raw. The WWE had apparently been contacting Steve Austin for a number of months to make a comeback in a permanent role on Raw. Austin at first wasnít too interested, but after a lot of though and discussion Austin accepted Vinceís offer. It is expected that Austin will have a long reign as General Manager of Raw.
On the Smackdown side of things, recently we have witnessed Batista in a more heelish character. At the moment the WWE see Batista in a more of a tweener role, as they are undecided whether to fully turn him heel or not. This will give them some time to think about if they should turn Batista heel or not.
Also just one week after having his final match with the WWE, Booker T along with his wife Sharmell have signed a contract to join TNA Wrestling. It has been reported that Booker Tís arrival has been met with a positive response, with the younger guys believing that Booker Tís experience could help them.
WWE Raw Preview
This week, Monday Night Raw rolls into Milwaukee Wisconsin with a new General Manager, and his name is Stone Cold Steve Austin. And with the toughest SOB in WWE History as General Manager, one thing you can expect is mayhem.
Last week saw an explosive confrontation between Chris Jericho and his father Vince McMahon. Chris Jericho has promised to open the show off to address a certain situation, what will Chris Jericho have in store for us tonight.
Also last week Umaga attacked Triple H after his steel cage match, coming off the top of the cage with a Body Splash onto Triple Hís helpless body. What carnage will Umaga unleash tonight, and will the Game seek revenge on the Samoan Bulldozer?
The biggest match announced for Raw so far is a 3 on 2 handicap match, as CM Punk teams up with RVD to take on John Morrison, Kevin Thorn and Intercontinental Champion Carlito. Also announced for tonight is a big clash between Cody Rhodes and Hardcore Holly. Last week Holly mistook Cody for hitting him with the chair, and hit Cody with the Alabama Slammer. Will Cody fall victim to the Alabama Slammer again tonight?
