Re: Being The Booker
Monday Night Raw Preview:
Spin the wheel ... make the deal. Raw Roulette returns to Monday Nights for the first time in two years, but the General Manager Eric Bischoff hasnt stopped there, as he attempts to make good on his word and make Monday Night Raw better than ever. Not only is the Raw Roulette concept being reintroduced tonight, but TWO championship matches will also take place.
The main event sees 'Captain Charisma' Christian defend the World Heavyweight Championship, just fifteen days after competing in the most bloody, brutal Hell in a Cell match in WWE history. His challenger is bidding to become only the second man in WWE history to hold BOTH the Intercontinental Championship and a World championship at the same time. Under the guidance of Theodore Long, Shelton Benjamin has solidified himself as a major player on Raw, and tonight, 'The Black Diamond' has the opportunity to achieve the long held ambition of The Brotherhood; reach the mountain top. What fate will the wheel determine for these two men??
And, it's the last chance for Alexis Laree to prevent Melina from revealing to the entire world her deepest, darkest secrets, as the Womens Championship is up for grabs. Last week, Laree refused to lie down for the A-Lister, but this week, Melina has made it clear that she wont stand for anything other than a forfeit from Laree. Will Alexis give in to the blackmail demands of her rival?? Or will the champion defy her tormentor, and put the championship first?? We'll find out tonight.
There's no championships at stake between Kurt Angle and John Cena - this one is personal. Angle has been on the warpath since Cena defeated him fifteen days ago to banish Mister McMahon from television forever, and after last weeks humiliation for 'The Boss', Angle is sure to be even more irate coming into Louisville. Tonight, the two men face off in a rematch from Backlash, and both will be hoping for the Roulette wheel to land on the most extreme match available, as they look to settle their differences once and for all.
However, whilst the Roulette wheel is the focus of the evening, for one man, his future is in his own hands. After suffering a number of injuries inside Hell in a Cell at Backlash, and spending almost a week in a hospital bed, Triple H returns to Raw, and will address his future to the entire world. Two weeks ago, his own wife, Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley declared that retirement could be a very real possibility for her husband, after the trauma suffered at Backlash, but tonight, we will find out from The Game himself, just what the future holds. Is 'The Game' truly over for the ten times World Champion??
Expect all of this, and much, much more, as the most unpredictable edition of Raw in quite some time comes live from Louisville - it's RAW ROULETTE!!!
World Heavyweight Championship Match | Christian vs Shelton Benjamin
Womens Championship Match | Alexis Laree vs Melina
Kurt Angle vs John Cena
