WWE Monday Night Raw Preview January 30th, 2006
This week Monday Night Raw rolls into Orlando, Florida coming off the back of the most star studded Royal Rumbles in WWE history.
When all the smoke had cleared, it came down to two superstars left in the ring: The legendary Undertaker of Friday Night SmackDown, and Raw's own John Cena. 'The Doctor Of Thuganomics' would ultimately pick up the victory, booking his spot in the Wrestlemania Main Event. Who will Cena choose to face come April 2nd? We will hear from the former Champ this Monday.
Another man with some explaining to do is 'The Heartbreak Kid' Shawn Michaels. After losing in his Royal Rumble Qualifying match up to John Cena last night, the veteran HBK seemingly snapped and assaulted 'The Doctor Of Thuganomics' during the Royal Rumble match, almost costing Cena it all. HBK has not been seen since that night. What will HBK have to say if indeed he chooses to show up?
In one of the most brutal WWE Championship matches in the history of the Royal Rumble, Kurt Angle emerged still with the gold around his waist. But the Olympian did not walk out of the arena. Triple H was still fuming from the result when last he was seen, but what will he have to say to the WWE Champion regarding the manner of Kurt Angle's victory?
One true great of professional wrestling and one very jealous ego. 'The Nature Boy' Ric Flair clashed backstage with SmackDown's own John 'Bradshaw' Layfield, leading to a confrontation during the Royal Rumble match itself. Naitch gained the upperhand by eliminating JBL, but the self-proclaimed 'Wrestling God' showed his disgust by eliminating Flair later in return, and brutally assaulting the 16-time World Champion on the outside. Will Ric Flair even be able to leave the hospital to make it to Orlando this week?
Also, in two huge announcements by Raw's General Manager, we will see the returning Rob Van Dam in action for the first time in six months, as he takes on the man who eliminated him from the Royal Rumble this Sunday, 'The Rated R Superstar' Edge. One other match involves the disgruntled team of Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch, whose Rumble spots were stolen by The Undertaker. Eager for revenge, Cade and Murdoch will face the team of Charlie Haas and ... the Intercontinental Champion Shelton Benjamin. What was going through Eric Bischoff's mind when he made such a pairing? No one knows, especially given the tension between the former friends Haas and Benjamin of late. Will they be able to co-exist, or will the subject of Benjamin eliminating Haas from the Rumble be too much for Charlie to take?
Plus, watch out for superstars such as Carlito, Gregory Helms, Eugene, and Trish Stratus, who will all be gracing us with their presence in Florida. Monday Night Raw comes to you at 8/7 central on Monday night. Don't miss it; it's going to be a Raw to remember...
