Monday Night Raw Preview
Monday 6th October 2008
Live from the Von Braun Center
>The Dead-Man is Coming. . . Back!<
Tonight will mark the return to Raw of one of the biggest names in sports entertainment history when The Undertaker appears live from Huntsville, Alabama. It was confirmed after his shock appearance last week at the conclusion of the show which saw Ted DiBiase & Ezekiel Jackson doing a number on Kofi Kingston. The duo were more shocked than anyone to see the phenom appear out of nowhere to leave them both flat on their backs as Raw drew to a close. You have to ask why DiBiase and is this a sign of things to come from the Raw roster now arguably the most feared superstar of all time is headed back to Monday nights?
One man who may well be smelling fear right now is the WWE Champion, Batista with the sharks circling the water, hungry to tear away his WWE title at Survivor Series. Eric Bischoff reluctantly made the announcement when it looked like we were about to witness chaos that The Animal will have to defend his title against both Randy Orton & Triple H in just under six weeks in a triple threat match. The Game may well be happy to let his marriage to Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley fall by the wayside but now he has what he wants, a shot at the title and The Animal. The Viper will be licking his lips at the prospect of taking back the title he’s tried to ever since losing it at WrestleMania. Are Batista’s days as champion numbered?
We’ll see Melina defend her title this week when she takes on Brie Bella, and after being accused by Mia Rain last Monday night of being an invisible champion, maybe the Women’s Champion will be out to prove a point in Huntsville.
The World Tag Team titles may not be up for grabs this week but by the end of the night one team will be just one match away from the gold when two of the remaining four teams in the hunt collide when the team of JTG and his rookie, Homicide take on the undefeated duo of Christopher Daniels & Kaval. JTG & Homicide warmed up with a win last week over another mentor/rookie combination of Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig. They looked impressive and their opponents for this week came out to take a closer look. Can Daniels & Kaval keep their impressive undefeated record going or will the boys from the Bronx make it two in two?
The winners of that match will go on to face the winners of next week’s contest between Matt Hardy & Gregory Helms and Rey Mysterio & Mystico. It was the Mexican duo that won the final spot in the last four week in a match that saw Shane McMahon suffer a nasty injury after being chokeslammed through the announce table by The Big Show. We’re hearing that there will be an announcement tonight on Shane’s condition. Also, Hardy & Helms will be able to get an idea of what they’ll be up against next Monday night when their buddy, Shannon Moore goes one on one with Mystico, Rey’s rookie this week. What we’ve seen of Mystico so far, you can guarantee there’s not going to be any lack of entertaining action.
If you didn’t catch No Mercy last night, you won’t have seen The Miz walk away from a potential fight with Shawn Michaels. It’d be an understatement to say those two have had their problems in recent weeks, and last Monday we saw The Heartbreak Kid ensure Miz and his rookie, Heath Slater would miss out on a shot at tag team glory. However Mr. Hollywood and his protégé will be in action tonight when they take on the team of Kofi Kingston & John Morrison in what will be a very difficult match indeed for The Miz & Slater. Life certainly won’t be getting any easier for The Miz anytime soon.
It also appears that one man who isn’t afraid of our new Intercontinental Champion, Sheamus is Carlito. After spitting in the Irishman’s face the week before, last Monday he was called out by the dominant & undefeated Celtic Warrior. Carlito openly mocked Sheamus’s pale complexion and even appeared to set a trap for him, a trap that he fell in to when Carlito’s brother, Eddie Colon jumped the Irishman having been attacked by him several weeks earlier, resulting in Carlito spitting in Sheamus’s face two weeks ago. It came as no surprise that Sheamus was furious and the Intercontinental Champion chased them out of the arena, only narrowly missing them as they sped out of the parking lot leaving the furious Irishman in their tracks. Will he be after them this week, and if so, will he be able to catch up with the Puerto Rican siblings this time?
In what promises to be a huge edition of Raw this week, make sure you tune in to see the return of The Undertaker and a whole lot more!
