Re: WWE 2005: Raising the Bar.
WWE Monday Night Raw Preview- 9/5/05- Little Rock, Arkansas, Alltel Arena
We are live from Little Rock, Arkansas this Monday night in what is sure to be a wild night for all the superstars of Monday Night Raw.
Last week saw the 2005 draft lottery and a lot of big moves occurred as Raw gained five new faces. The Big Show returned to Monday nights along with Doug and Danny Basham, Mark Jindrak and Charlie Haas. What kind of impact will these five make, if any, on their first night on Raw?
Also, last week, general manager Eric Bischoff announced a HUGE main event for tonights Raw. We will see the Game, the King of Kings, Triple H go one on one with Y2J, Chris Jericho with the winner going onto Vengeance to face Batista for the World Heavyweight championship. At Backlash, Jericho was cost the title by Mr.Money in the Bank, Edge. Will Jericho get another shot by beating The Game in Little Rock? Or will the 10 time World champion move one step closer to making it number 11?
Furthermore, tonight we are expecting to hear from Shawn Michaels after what went down during last weeks draft show. Michaels was praying that the draft see him and Kurt Angle on the same show but ultimately Michaels wish wasn’t met and it now seems as though HBK won’t be getting his shot at revenge on the Wrestling Machine. What will Michaels next move be and what will he have to say regarding the Angle situation?
We found out exactly who Muhammad Hassan’s new chronies were last week on Raw and they have certainly made a big impact since arriving on Monday nights. The Great Khali and Sonjay Dutt have joined forces with Hassan and Daivari to form the Arabian Entity. Last week the Entity got the upper hand yet again on Hassan’s rival, Shelton Benjamin. Benjamin however now has an ally, his former tag team partner, Charlie Haas was drafted last week and tonight on Raw The World’s Greatest Tag Team will reunite and take on Daivari and Sonjay Dutt in tag team action. Will the Entity have the answers for the reuniting Haas and Benjamin this week?
Christian has had a big couple of weeks and with just one week now until Ric Flair returns to Raw, we are fully expecting Christian to address that situation here tonight. Captain Charisma has called Flair to answer his challenge and to face him one on one in order to ‘pass the torch’ in Christian’s words. Christian has told Flair that one way or another he will get his hands on him, what will Christian threaten this week?
Confirmed for tonight’s Raw:
#1 contenders match for the World title
Triple H vs. Chris Jericho
The World’s Greatest Tag Team; Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas vs. The Arabian Entity; Sonjay Dutt and Daivari w/Muhammad Hassan and The Great Khali
The show will be in recap as will all of Raw up until the Smackdown PPV, Judgment Day, Smackdown will be in full up til then. After Judgment Day it’ll be vice versa.
