Raw preview- 4/11/05- United Center, Chicago, Ilinois
Monday Night Raw comes to you from Chicago with the World title situation now a lot clearer heading into Backlash.
Last week saw Chris Jericho insert himself into the title mix when he defeated the new champion Batista, all thanks to the sneaky interference from Edge.
Edge will no doubt be on a high after seeing the champion now in a precarious position come Backlash, leaving Edge potentially open to strike. Will Edge try to one up the champion yet again this week?
On the other hand, what will Batista have in store for Edge this week? Last weeks loss is sure to not sit well with the champion and Batista is undoubtedly going to want to get some payback. And what will Triple H have to say now that Chris Jericho has been added to the equation at Backlash? The Game had a rematch nailed on but Eric Bischoff pulled one out the hat when he announced Jericho possibly being included and with the result from the main event, Hunter’s worst fears were confirmed. We’ll see just what Triple H has up his sleeve this week.
Also, last week saw Vince McMahon announce Randy Orton would face Shawn Michaels at Backlash. HBK got the upper hand last week when he hit Sweet chin music on Orton. How will the Legend Killer respond this week? And will we see any developments in the draft announcement with both Michaels and Orton wanting changes to happen?
We also saw Muhammad Hassan stake his claim for the Intercontinental title last week when he attacked the champion Shelton Benjamin. Surely the champ will be out for payback this week in Chicago?
