Raw pyro goes off in Madison Square Garden in New York City
– Welcome to all of you for Monday Night Raw, no J.R next to me after the beating Triple H gave him last week.
Coach’s Theme Plays
– Well everybody, here comes Jonathan Coachman.
Coach comes out to a chorus of boos and approaches the Announce Table
– Ladies and Gentlemen we are now being joined by none other then the Coach, and Coach what brings you here?
– Well King, Eric Bischoff gave me special permission to come out here because he doesn’t want you making a fool out of yourself, so someone needs to control you, and that person is the Coach.
Trish Stratus’ Theme Plays
– See, it’s for things like that, that Mr. Bischoff sent me out here. This is a family show and comments like that are highly disrespectful.
– Oh will you just be quiet. I don’t think you’ve found your head yet…it’s still stuck up Bischoff’s ass.
– Well here comes Trish Stratus accompanied to the Ring by Edge, she’s going to take on the Women’s Champion, Molly Holly and Diamond Dallas Page in Mixed Tag Team action.
– Making their way to the Ring, Trish Stratus and Edge
Molly Holly’s Theme Plays
– And their opponents, Molly Holly and Diamond Dallas Page.
– Well here comes the adorable Molly, the Women’s Champion…
– Not as adorable as my Trish, you go girl!

Trish Stratus & Edge vs. Molly Holly & Diamond Dallas Page
Edge lands the Spear on DDP and gets the 3-Count
Here are your winners – Trish Stratus & Edge
They celebrate in the Ring until DDP enters and Diamond Cutters’ Edge. Christian comes out and Impales, DDP. Then without warning Trish turns around and she sees Jazz. Jazz flapjack’s her onto the canvas, then makes her submit by applying the STF.
– My woman Jazz is back.
– Jazz is back on Raw and has immediately made her mark on the Woman that injured her for so long, Trish Stratus. Wow.
We return on air as another Hirohito promo airs:
These people were brave but in their own minds were cowards,
These people sent out thousands to fight hundreds,
Will we ever know our true destiny?
Destiny defying the barriers of reality,
My Grandparents fought for our rights,
Now I’m coming to vanquish the suffering that this has caused,
I will show no remorse to those who conquered…
You will not choose to see me I will be there,
Hirohito is coming…at Taboo Tuesday
– Hirohito…. at Taboo Tuesday!!
– This anti-American warrior is coming to the WWE for one thing, and that is to take out each and every superstar who shows no good towards his country.
The camera turns to a clip of Chris Benoit getting helped into a seat as his exclusive interview is coming up in a short while.
– Well Coach, what a match we have in store later on as the Intercontinental Champion, Randy Orton teams up the former Hardcore Champion Scott Steiner to take on two men fresh off an epic Ladder Match on last week’s Raw in Kansas.
– That match is sure gonna be off the chart folks be sure not to miss it!
Don’t Try This At Home Commercial
– Well everybody, two weeks ago Chris Benoit suffered horrific injuries at the hands of the Cerebral Assassin, Triple H. He suffered a grade two concussion, a broken elbow, 2 broken fingers, 3 broken ribs and horrific amounts of cuts, bruises and lost blood but Chris Benoit is going to talk to us from his family home in Edmonton, Alberta…
Benoit appears on the TitanTron
– Chris, good evening and we would just like to wish you a very speedy recovery.
– Thank you, King.
– So Chris, how have you been feeling in these past two weeks and how have the doctors assessed your injuries?
– Well King, as you said I suffered these broken bones and doctors have treated me well. They discharged me a couple of days ago and I have been at home trying to heal from these wounds. The doctors don’t know how long I will be out but they say it could be anything between 4-8 weeks, but only time will tell.
– Good evening Chris, Jonathan Coachman here, is there anything that you want to say to the man who did this to you?
– Coach, it would be my pleasure. Now listen up real straight Triple H. You did this to me, not anyone else but you. I feared for my career, the career in which I have been for over 20 years. Hunter, I was in this ring sweating my ass off when you were still in high school and one thing they teach you in this business is respect. Respect for yourself and respect for every single wrestler and diva you meet. HHH you abused me, you took away my physical specimen and beat my down to a bloody pulp. But mark my words Hunter Hearst Helmsley when I get back into that ring, you better beware because I am going to beat you up so bad that wherever you are you will be covered in a pool of your own blood. And I will teach you that no-body messes with the crippler, Chris Benoit because I will make you tap.
– Chris, I know that you are aware of Triple H wrestling in a World Heavyweight Title match at Taboo Tuesday. Is there anything you want to say about that?
– Triple H, I will make sure that come my return, I will kick your ass so bad you wont even be able to sit down. Triple H, be afraid, be very afraid because Chris Benoit is your most wanted man. You tried to take me out…but I’m still here whether you, Bischoff or anyone else for that matter likes it. Be vigilante, cos’ I’m coming for you. This interview is over.
Benoit leaves as the cameras turn back to the Announcers.
– Wow, Benoit with a massive vow to make Triple H pay for what he did.
– Stay at home Chris, we don’t want any lunatics running around Raw. We’ve already got Eugene, now that’s enough.
– Speaking of Eugene, he will be in singles action later on tonight as he goes up against one half of La Resistance, that being Sylvain Grenier.
– Raw will be back after this short break.
Eugene’s Theme Plays
– Making his way to the Ring, being accompanied to the ring by William Regal, he weighs in at 246lbs, Eugene.
– Here comes the amoeba of Raw himself, Eugene.
– Coach, if I’m right, this amoeba holds a pinfall victory over you…
– I, I, I, I, I…was just about to say, the amoeba of Raw Eugene…’s friend William Regal.
– Now your having a go at our fellow chap from Blackpool, England, William Regal…That’s how they do speak in England, right…. chap?
– Shut up!
La Resistance’s Theme Plays
– And his opponent, being accompanied to the ring by Robert Conway, now residing in Quebec, Canada, he weighs in at 247lbs, Sylvain Grenier.
– Should be an interesting match but will the factors outside the ring provide any distractions?
Eugene w/William Regal vs. Sylvain Grenier w/Robert Conway
Conway brings a steel chair into the ring and blindsidedly hits Eugene with it.
Here is your winner by DQ – Eugene
The beat down continues until Jeff Hardy comes down to the Ring. He lands a twist of fate on Grenier followed by a dropkick to Conway. Matt Hardy then runs down to help Jeff. He lands his Twist of Fate on Conway and Jeff sets him up for the Swanton Bomb, which he executes perfectly. Suddenly Eric Bischoff’s face appears on the TitanTron.
– Jeff Hardy, Matt Hardy, you want La Resistance so bad, well next week we’re going to have ourselves a good old tag team match, because it will be the Hardy Boyz against La Resistance.
Jeff and Matt seem quite happy as they leave the ring and head up the TitanTron.
– Awesome match made by an awesome General Manager.
– Isn’t he great!
– Hey, it’s good for a change not to have someone shouting in your ear about how pathetic Eric Bischoff is…it does make for a nice change!
Raw preview announcing Raw to be held for the first time in Manchester, England in 7 days time!!!!
Mr McMahon’s theme plays
– Well folks, here comes the boss and folks, you don’t cross the boss!
– That’s right but I wonder what mood the boss will be in?
– Well looks like the boss has an agenda on his mind that he wants to adhere to…
McMahon picks up the microphone…
– Over the past 7 days, fans from all over the globe have been voting to see who they want to be the last participant in the World Heavyweight Title match at Taboo Tuesday…well I can reveal that that vote was…. a tie.
– Ha ha, folks we’ve got a tie, how are they going to choose…?
– This was a tie between Kane, and the Intercontinental Champion, Randy Orton. Now I am well aware of the fact that Mr. Orton has to defend his title at Taboo Tuesday, and I don’t want to put any more pressure on his young back, so I declare that by default the person going through to the Triple Threat match is…
Randy Orton’s Theme Plays
– Well, here comes greatness in the form of our Intercontinental Champion, Randy Orton.
Orton grabs a microphone and interrupts…
– Vince, Vince, are you insane? So what if I already had a match at Taboo Tuesday. I know that if I were in both matches I would be more tired and risk the possibility of loosing my Intercontinental Title, but then again, I could be a double champion…
– Please Vince, this is my only chance….
– Ok, Randy, you will be included in the match, and at Taboo Tuesday in a Fatal Fourway, Elimination Match for the World Heavyweight Title, it will be Goldberg defending his title against Triple H, Kane, and Randy Orton, thank you very much.
Orton shakes Mr. McMahon’s hand as both leave the Ring gloriously.

Todd Grisham is standing by with Kane
– Kane, later on tonight you go one-on-one with Abyss. This match should have taken place last week but why did you delay it until this week? And also, what do you have to say about the fans including you in the World Heavyweight Title match at Taboo Tuesday?
– Well, my title shot is no thanks to the fans. I was long overdue one anyway. Bischoff needs to realise that I am the monster around here and so this opportunity would have come soon enough anyway.
– And your match with Abyss…?
– Listen up real close. Abyss is nothing but…a prick. I will beat his ass down so bad that he wished he were taping a crappy taping at Nashville like he used to do…
Abyss suddenly comes out from nowhere and a referee accompanies him, a bell is rung backstage
Falls Count Anywhere

– Coming up next is the Highlight Reel and maybe we’ll get some explanations as to why Y2J was at No Mercy this past Sunday…
Chris Jericho’s Theme Plays
– Well, here comes the highlight of the night, the one and only Chris Jericho.
– Well, I know that you know that I was at No Mercy…but for what cause remains a mystery…but it shall remain a mystery no more. I was simply at No Mercy to see what Smackdown had to offer and I thought that….it was nothing short of crap. Raw has the better Diva’s, the better superstars, and the sexiest man to ever grace a WWE ring by the name of Chris Jericho.
– Well he’s not wrong there!
– But enough of my banter, I want to introduce you to a special highlight reel because tonight there will be no special guests, just me, Chris Jericho. I am going to give you what all of you Jerichoholics out there have wanted for years…two minutes of Chris Jericho’s illustrious yet still unfinished, career. So please all observe the Jeritron 5000 as I present to you, Chris Jericho and the WWE…ROLL THE FOOTAGE PLEASE!
The footage is shown and a few endings of matches are shown. The tape finishes and Jericho picks up the mic.
– it just goes to show that I am the best thing since sliced bread and at Taboo Tuesday I will beat Randy Orton and I will beat RVD and I will regain what is truly mine, the Intercontinental Title. But for now we have some business to take care of, RVD join me in the Ring, we got a whole lot of ass-kicking to do.
RVD’s Theme Plays
– Making his way to the ring, from Battlecreek, Michigan, he weighs in at 237lbs, Rob Van Dam.
