RAW PREVIEW (22nd October 2007)
VINCE SCREWS THE GAME AGAIN – WHO WILL FACE ORTON?
Mr. McMahon’s obsession with Triple H possibly went too far last week when he put The Game into a 3 on 2 Handicap match and then removed CM Punk from the match as Triple H’s partner, making it a 3 on 1 match. Against the odds, The King of Kings put in an amazing display and was just short of a victory when the WWE Champion Randy Orton caught him with an RKO to delight the Chairman of the Board.
With Cyber Sunday just six days away, Triple H, CM Punk and John Morrison will be doing their best to get your votes to face Orton for the WWE Championship. Just who will do the most to get your votes when Raw comes to Omaha this week?
KENNEDY GETS THE OPTIONS
After beating Jeff Hardy in a non title match two weeks ago, Mr. Kennedy was given the green light to get a shot at the high flier’s Intercontinental Championship this Sunday night at Cyber Sunday. Last week, Kennedy was desperate to find out what matches the fans were going to be choosing from, and the Raw General Manager William Regal told him exactly what he could be going into this Sunday night. You have the option of choosing between a No Disqualification match, Ladder match and a First Blood match.
Just what will you be voting for when Mr. Kennedy meets The Rainbow Haired Warrior?
GETTING PERSONAL BETWEEN THE SECOND GENERATION STARS
Two weeks ago on Raw, Cody Rhodes caused an upset when he defeated Carlito in singles action. The cocky superstar from the Caribbean didn’t take it too well and reacted by attacking Cody after the match and last week invited him to The Cabana. With some strong comments made from both sides, the duo ended up brawling their way to the back before they met in the ring later on. This time Carlito picked up the win in a tag team match, holding on to Cody’s trunks to get one over on the young superstar.
The duo will meet again this week, this time in a mixed six person tag team match. Who will get the upper hand this week?
DREAMER CAUSES ANOTHER UPSET OVER THE CHAMPS
Making their Raw return a couple of weeks back, former ECW superstars Tommy Dreamer and Stevie Richards caused one big stir when they beat the World Tag Team Champions in an eight man tag team match, and last week it got better for them as Dreamer was victorious over Lance Cade in singles action. The two teams will meet this Monday night on Raw in a sneak peak of what we will see when the they meet at Cyber Sunday in whatever match you decide to put them it.
MICKIE GETS BEATEN DOWN
Nobody expected Mickie James to get an easy ride last week when she went one on one with Victoria and had her Cyber Sunday opponent, Beth Phoenix at ringside. Mickie gave it her all and looked to be coming out on top of a back and forth match with Victoria when the Womens Champion decided to get involved and gave the challenger a DQ victory.
The divas meet in a six person tag match this Monday night and Mickie will be looking for revenge on the Glamazon. Can she get it?
ANOTHER BULLDOG ON THE WAY!
In a shock to us all, we found out last week that the late British Bulldog’s son, Harry will be coming to Raw very soon. The young man has a lot to live up to and it’s only matter of time before we find out if he’s up to the task.
BURKE GETS DEBUT VICTORY
Elijah Burke has never been short of confidence and after making his presence felt on Raw two weeks ago by insulting Val Venis & Hacksaw Jim Duggan, last week he was put to the test and pulled out a victory over Duggan. This week Burke will be going one on one with Val Venis in what could be a very close match up.
Last Friday night on Smackdown, we saw the first superstars to take advantage of the Open House rules when Umaga jumped from Raw and The Worlds Greatest Tag Team shocked everyone by entering the Invitational Gauntlet Match to become the new WWE Tag Team Champions. With Raw losing 3 superstars in one night, will any Smackdown stars join the stars of Monday night this week?
We will also get an update on the injury sustained by John Cena.

RAW RESULTS (22nd October 2007)
Recap from last week’s show
• Triple H in the ring at the top of the show, demanding he gets a chance to face Randy Orton at Cyber Sunday
• Mr. McMahon walking into his office and sees Triple H sat down, who then gets up and physically threatens him to make him an option for Cyber Sunday and Vince eventually caves and makes him one of three possible men to face Orton for the WWE Championship
• Mr. McMahon making John Morrison the third option for Cyber Sunday and then telling him that he will be part of a 3 on 2 Handicap match for later on against Triple H and CM Punk
• Before the main event could start, Mr. McMahon telling CM Punk that he was no longer part of the match and told him to leave ringside or he would remove him from the voting for Cyber Sunday
• Triple H putting up a fight before Orton eventually got the pinfall after Trips removed Umaga and Morrison from the ring. Then the cut to Vince smiling on the outside as Orton stands above Trips at the end of the show
***“Wanna Be Loved” plays throughout the arena***
***“The Game” blasts out & Triple H walks down to the ring looking very pissed off***
Trips is passed a microphone and gets right to the point by saying that Vince McMahon crossed the line last week by making him face three men in a handicap match, but says that against all the odds, it looked like he had the match won until he turned round into an RKO from Randy Orton (Heat). He then says that will not happen this Sunday at Cyber Sunday because when not if the fans vote him in for a shot at the WWE Championship, he will make Orton and Vince’s life a living hell by taking what he should have left with at No Mercy, the WWE title (Pop).
He then tells the fans that they have the chance to not only give Triple H the chance to become the WWE Champion, but they have the power to make Vince’s night the night from hell and not only that, they can see Randy Orton get what’s coming to him (Pop). He tells them that they have the power to make Cyber Sunday the greatest night of his life and also the most enjoyable of the fans lives and tells them that if he is voted in, he will do everything that he has promised, and that is become the WWE Champion, making Vince’s worst nightmare come true (Pop). . .
***“No Chance in Hell” hits as Mr. McMahon walks out to the entrance ramp, getting a ton of heat***
Vince looks down at Triple H with a smile on his face and tells him that he is so very happy that Triple H is begging all the fans to vote him in because he can’t wait for the world to come crashing down on Trips. Vince then tells Triple H that he underestimated him last week in the handicap match and admits he didn’t think Triple H would pull through, but says that his goal for tonight is to make sure Triple H doesn’t get to Cyber Sunday and voted in for a shot at Randy Orton’s WWE Championship (Heat). He then says that Triple H has crossed the line in so many ways that these people will never know, but last week when HHH threatened him with an act of violence in his office, that was one step too far and for that, he will pay.
Vince says that tonight could be one step too far for Triple H because just like last week he will be in a handicap match, a handicap gauntlet match (Heat) against several different tag teams should he get that far. Triple H shakes his head before lifting the microphone to his mouth and telling Vince that he can put anything he wants in his way, but nothing, nothing will stop him from becoming the WWE Champion at Cyber Sunday and making Vince’s life a living nightmare (Pop).
***“The Game” blasts out again as the two stare each other down and we go to commercial***
CM Punk vs Hardcore Holly
SUMMARY: Punk started the match in trouble as Holly worked really stiff, pummelling him with right hand after right hand. Punk didn’t let Holly take control and as Hardcore went for an irish whip, Punk was able to reverse it and executed a perfect enziguri but somehow Holly just kicked out at the count of two. Punk went in for the kill and as Holly got to his feet, Punk was on the apron and hit a springboard clothesline to the veteran. With the crowd cheering him on, Punk coolly waited for Holly to get back up to his feet where he finished him off with the Go To Sleep.
AFTERMATH: “This Fire Burns” hits and Punk celebrates to a great ovation from the fans
We see Cody Rhodes backstage getting ready in his locker room (Pop), putting his boots on when his dad, Dusty Rhodes walks through the door (Pop) and half shouts “Cody, my boy”. Cody stands up fully and hugs his dad as Dusty then asks him if he’s ready for his match tonight. Cody looks his dad in the eyes and says that after the comments Carlito made about both him and Dusty last week, he’s more than ready and says he’s going to make Carlito eat his words. Dusty then warns Cody to be careful by saying that Carlito is like a snake, he’s clever and dangerous. Cody says that he’ll be fine and that he is going to beat Carlito tonight and that that’s cool (Pop). Dusty says “That’s my boy” and they hug again as the camera fades out.
Val Venis vs Elijah Burke
SUMMARY: In what was a fairly even match, Val resisted one of Burke’s jabs, ducked underneath and hit him with some hard right hands of his own, forcing him back against the ropes. He then whipped Burke into the ropes and tossed him over head with a back body drop. With the crowd getting behind him, Val went in for the kill, hitting Burke with an inverted atomic drop, followed up by a side suplex into a sit down powerbomb. After getting a 2 count, Val went up top for the Money Shot, but as he leaped off, Burke just rolled out of the way. Both men remained on the mat for several seconds before Val lifted Burke off his knees and tried for another side suplex, but this time Burke was able to flip back off the shoulders and pushed Val into the ref who was only knocked down lightly. Val reached down to check if he was okay but Burke from behind, low blowed him which the ref didn’t see and then he spun Val round and hit the Elijah Experience, dropped to the mat and the ref slowly recovered to count the fall.
AFTERMATH: Burke pulls himself up to his knees and raises his arms in the air before standing up and getting his arm raised. Val sits up and looks on pissed at Burke who leaves the ring laughing at Val who looks back with an angry look on his face
At the Raw interview set, we see Todd Grisham standing by as he then introduces his guest, Mr. Kennedy (Heat). Todd says that in six days time, Mr. Kennedy goes one on one with Jeff Hardy for the Intercontinental Championship at Cyber Sunday as Kennedy then cuts him off and tells him that everyone in the world is aware of just what is going down in six days time. Kennedy says that everyone on earth knows what is happening at Cyber Sunday because the word has spread that the fastest rising superstar in the history of the WWE is about to become the Intercontinental Champion for the first time (Heat).
He says that the fans can deny it all the want, Jeff Hardy can deny it all he wants too, but it doesn’t change the fact that at Cyber Sunday, there’s not a damn thing anyone can do to stop Mr. Kennedy walking out with gold shining around his waist (Heat). Todd then asks him what type of match he wants the fans to vote for, a Ladder match, a No Disqualification match or a First Blood match. Kennedy grins sadistically and then tells Todd to cast his mind back to Wrestlemania this year before asking him who won the biggest Ladder match in the history of the WWE at the biggest stage of them all.
Todd replies “You Did” and Kennedy tells him he’s right because at Wrestlemania, he won the Money in the Bank Ladder match and ladders don’t scare him one bit. He then says that no disqualifications are right up his ally and if Todd doesn’t believe him, he tells him to ask The Undertaker because almost twelve months ago, he beat The Undertaker by making the Deadman bleed in a First Blood match (Heat).
Kennedy then looks into the camera and tells Jeff that with no disrespect intended, Jeff can’t even begin to compete with the likes of The Undertaker and that this Sunday, the fans can pick whatever match they want, then says the vote should be called “In what match do you want to see Mr. Kennedy make a complete and utter embarrassment of Jeff Hardy?” (Heat). He turns to Todd before turning back and says that they are looking at the next Intercontinental Champion before announcing his name twice and walking off with a focused but confident look on his face.
A recap from last week when Carlito insulted Cody Rhodes and Cody’s dad’s reputation in Carlito’s Cabana before a brawl ensued and security separated them.
Jeff Hardy, Cody Rhodes & Mickie James vs Carlito, Mr. Kennedy & Beth Phoenix
SUMMARY: Jeff spent most of the match in the ring for his team, and as it came towards the end of the match, he was in there with Kennedy. Jeff was in control after ducking a right hand, then stomping Kennedy in the chest, followed up by a whip to the corner and a hard clothesline. Kennedy staggered out of the corner and was then on the receiving end of a Whisper in the Wind. Jeff went for a cover but it was stopped at two as Carlito got in the ring and pulled Jeff off by the feet. Cody then ran in and unleashed some right hands on Carlito, forcing him against the ropes and then clotheslined him over the top. Cody then went outside and pulled Carlito up to his feet where they then brawled all the way to the back.
As Jeff and Kennedy got back up to their feet, Kennedy whipped Jeff into the ropes, but as Jeff came back, he exploded with a flying forearm. Kennedy got back up and was then set up for a Twist of Fate, but he managed to escape, then spun Jeff round and whipped him into a hard short arm clothesline. He then went up to the top rope and went for the Kenton Bomb, but Jeff rolled out of the way as Kennedy hit the mat back first. Both still dazed, crawled to the corners and tagged in their partners, with both men still lying on the mat. Mickie came in flying at Beth and quickly whipped her into the corner, then hit her with a clothesline.
Beth staggered out and Mickie stomped her in the gut and went for the Implant DDT, but Beth threw Mickie off her shoulder. Beth was still groggy and took her a while before she walked off to Mickie and picked her up off her knees, but Mickie reacted quickly with some fists to the gut. Mickie then hit her with a few forearms, but Kennedy back on his feet, made his way over to Jeff in the corner, distracting the ref as Kennedy and Jeff exchanged rights. The ref got in between them, but as Kennedy walked back, he turned round into Beth and knocked her over. Jeff then dropkicked Kennedy to the mat and off the apron to the outside as Mickie waited for Beth to get up and hit the Implant DDT for the win.
AFTERMATH: Mickie’s music hits and she looks down at Beth with a focused look in her eyes. Jeff walks over and hugs Mickie for a second before he sees Kennedy sitting up on the outside looking at him as they stare intensely at each other
Todd Grisham is at the interview set and introduces us to the WWE Champion, Randy Orton (Heat). Todd says that in just six days time, Orton will be defending the WWE Championship against CM Punk, Triple H or John Morrison at Cyber Sunday with the fans deciding on just which superstar it will be and asks Orton if he is at all nervous about going in blind at Cyber Sunday. Orton smirks and then says that the best part of Cyber Sunday is that the fans get to decide everything, saying they can pick who faces him and they can pick all other kinds of matches and that it’s the most innovative show ever in wrestling history. He then pauses for a second before saying that the one thing the fans want to vote for most won’t change a thing because he is walking out of Cyber Sunday still the WWE Champion (Heat).
He then says that if they choose CM Punk, it will be his first and last shot at the WWE championship. Then he says that there’s no point even discussing John Morrison getting voted in and as for Triple H, as much as the fans want to see The Game win the title one more time, it’s not going to happen because the Legend Killer will become The Game Killer at Cyber Sunday (Heat). Todd then asks him if he feels Triple H would be able to compete after having to go through a handicap gauntlet match tonight. Orton laughs and says he hopes the fans vote him in and that Triple H can find just a last little bit of strength to walk to the ring on Sunday so that he can prove once and for all that he is what he says he is and that is The Legend Killer (Heat).
***CUT TO RINGSIDE***
JR is in the ring and said that after injuring his pectoral muscle three weeks ago on Raw, John Cena has had successful surgery and will be out an estimated seven to twelve months (Mixed Reception). He then said that WWE cameras were there to see the surgery place and that they were going to show it on the tron when. . .
***Santino Marella’s music plays and he walks out to the ring***
Santino told JR that no one cares about John Cena anymore and that he is “how they say it, yesterday’s news”. He then put himself over by saying that there is only room for one big star on Monday Night Raw and that John Cena had to walk out of the door to make room for the real star of the show, Santino Marella (Heat). JR looks confused and shocked as Marella then asks JR if he’s got somewhere else he needs to be like a winner takes all barbecue (Heat). JR shakes his head as Marella continues insulting him, saying he thought Pavarotti was a big fat man, but JR is as big as Eric The Cart-Man. JR said he didn’t need to listen to that and left the ring and Marella then told him that the barbecue is the other way. JR shakes his head as he climbs through the ropes as Santino then said he thinks he felt there was an “Earthcake”. He is about to talk again when. . .
***A Video Plays on the Tron***
A short highlight reel of The British Bulldog is shown and then it shows him with his son Harry backstage from around ten years ago. It then cuts to clips of Harry Smith training in a gym and some location shots and then fades to a “Harry Smith Coming Soon” text overlay.
Santino is clearly angry and says that he should not be shown such disrespect and that he is not going to stand for it. He then drops his microphone and leaves the ring to his music playing, looking very angry.
CM Punk is getting changed in his locker room (Pop) when William Regal walks in and tells Punk that he saw his match and thought that he was very impressive. Punk cuts to the chase and asks Regal what he wants. Regal tells him that just to make sure nothing untoward happens in the main event, by the orders of Mr. McMahon, he is sending Punk home (Heat). Punk tells Regal that if Vince wants him out of the building, maybe he should do it himself instead of sending his lackey to do his dirty work for him. Regal gets all serious and tells Punk that he must leave the building because Mr. McMahon is not a man to be messed with. Punk looks Regal in the eyes and tells him that he’s going for a shower and if that means he’s still here for the main event, then so be it. Regal tells him he would be making a big mistake if he is to disobey Mr. McMahon. Punk tells Regal he hears what he’s saying and then asks him to leave too because he needs to go for a shower. Regal turns round, then looks back and tells Punk not to do anything stupid, as Punk just laughs and Regal leaves the room.
A recap from the last two weeks, first when Tommy Dreamer beat Lance Cade in an eight man tag team match, and then last week when he beat Cade in singles action.
NON TITLE MATCH
Tommy Dreamer & Stevie Richards vs Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch
SUMMARY: Cade took the match to Dreamer in the early part, but Dreamer fought back and put a beat down on Cade before making a tag to Stevie. As Stevie went in, he too took control for a while before Cade was able to reverse an irish whip and plant him with a powerslam and making a tag to Murdoch. He then came in and took the match to Stevie, beating him down with stomps and mat holds. Stevie started to fight a side headlock, and with the fans cheering him on, he was able to fight it and escaped, pushing Murdoch into the ropes and following up with a dropkick. He then made a tag to Dreamer who came in full of steam, knocking Murdoch back down with a string of clotheslines, before then running over and knocking Cade off the apron. He then turned back round, and as Murdoch got up, Dreamer planted him with a spike DDT for the win.
AFTERMATH: The ref raised their arms in victory, but from behind, Cade back in the ring, hit Stevie across the back with one of the title belts, and as Dreamer turned round, Cade kicked him in the gut and smashed him across the skull with the belt too. Murdoch got back to his feet and with Cade, they started attacking Dreamer & Stevie until they laid them both out on the mat. The champs then stood above them and looked down with an intense look in their eyes
HANDICAP GAUNTLET MATCH
FIRST GAUNTLET MATCH
Triple H vs The Highlanders
SUMMARY: Triple H started the match with Rory and was on fire, very aggressive and after hitting Rory with a Double A spinebuster, he allowed Rory to make the tag to Robbie as Rory crawled across the mat. Robbie came in and ran at HHH, but The Game ducked underneath a swing of the arm and then connected with a neckbreaker. Robbie slowly got back to his feet and he too was then on the receiving end of a Double A spinebuster. As Robbie slowly got back to his feet again, Triple H walked over to Rory and punched him off the apron before turning back to Robbie and finishing him off with a Pedigree.
AFTERMATH: Triple H gets back up to his feet and looks up intensely towards the entrance ramp, waiting for his next opponents. After a few seconds, Deuce ‘N’ Domino with Cherry make their way down to the ring, maybe they’ve taken advantage of the Open House rule and joined the Raw brand
SECOND GAUNTLET MATCH
Triple H vs Deuce ‘N’ Domino w/Cherry
SUMMARY:[/color] Deuce & Domino did a good job of working over Triple H, with the illegal man at the time coming in whenever Triple H got on top. They seemed to be in control after Deuce distracted Triple H, and as Trips turned round, Domino caught him with a huge boot to the face. Trips looked in agony as he slowly sat up and D & D looked to be going for the Crack Em In Da Mouth. With Cherry on the apron distracting the ref, Deuce & Domino looked set to smash Trips in the face and as Domino ran at him, HHH ducked his head, got back up to his feet and ran at Deuce, then clotheslined him over the top rope. Domino turned round and ran at Trips who kicked him in the gut and finished him off with the Pedigree.
AFTERMATH: Triple H stands back up and waits for his next opponents when Mr. McMahon walks out to the entrance ramp with a microphone in hand. He congratulates Triple H on getting so far, and then says that he has just one match left for The Game and that he won’t get through it like he won’t get the votes he needs for Cyber Sunday. He then introduces his opponents as John Morrison walks out first and followed by Randy Orton
THIRD GAUNTLET MATCH
Triple H vs Randy Orton & John Morrison
SUMMARY: Triple H fought Morrison off well as Orton stood on the apron, not wanting to get involved. With Morrison trying to take advantage of Triple H’s accumulated fatigue, The Game was on the back foot with Morrison applying sleeper holds and side headlocks continuously. But The Game managed to fight everything Morrison threw at him, raising his arm at the third attempt while in a sleeper hold. The crowd went crazy as he managed to escape the hold, whipping Morrison into the ropes and connecting with a high knee lift. Morrison got back on his feet and ran into a standing clothesline from Triple H who then exploded with right hands, one after another, knocking Morrison down. With The Game getting on top, Orton looked worried on the outside and tried to get into the ring, distracting Triple H who made his way over to Orton. As he got to the corner, Mike Chioda got between them to stop them brawling, but as Trips turned round, Morrison was on his knees and low blowed The Game, but Chioda turned round into time to see it and called for the bell.
AFTERMATH: Orton get on the ring and dropped to his knees, seeming to be stalking Triple H for an RKO when CM Punk ran down the aisle past a shell shocked Vince and connected with a springboard clothesline to enter the ring and knock Orton down to the mat. Orton was back on his feet quickly, but was met with a series of martial arts kicks by Punk who then lifted Orton onto his shoulder for a GTS, but Orton was able to slip off the shoulders and spun Punk round into an RKO. Orton stared down at Punk and was unaware even though the crowd cheered as Triple H got back up to his feet behind him, and as Orton turned round, he was stomped in the gut and given a Pedigree

Re: WWE: A Strong Response
D-K-L's Raw review:
This was a good way to start the show after what happened last week between the two. What Triple H had to say was good. Vince coming down was expected, and the match he made is very interesting and was something that Vince would do. It'll be interesting to see where this storyline goes, although I'm sure Triple H will have the last laugh. Hopefully everybody has voted in CM Punk to face orton, but if Triple H is voted in I think Vince will cost him the match.
CM Punk vs. Hardore Holly:
This seemed like a good match, having Punk beat Holly is a good way to make Punk look strong. I like how you had Holly wrestle stiff, just like he does IRL. I think this would be a good match to watch. Hopefully Punk will be voted to face orton on Sunday, but it may be too early for him to win the title. It would still be an enjoyable match to read though.
This was good, a good little build up for the match later. It was interesting seeing Dusty at raw. I like the 'dats cool' line.
Venus vs. Burke:
This seemed like a good match. I was expecting a squash match but it didn't come off that way. The ending was very nicely done, a good way for a heel to win. I maybe would of liked to see Burke win cleanly, but i'm sure he will win lots of matches cleanly in the future. I'm a big fan of Burke, so hopefully he will do well on Raw. It looks like that short storyline involving Burke, Duggan and Venus is finished now, so it'll be interesting to see what you have in mind for Burke now.
This was a very good interview. He was a typical heel by interupting Grisham. kennedy was very much in character, he was his typical cocky self. I love the way he gave examples of the last time he wrestled in the first blood and ladder matches, it was good booking to remember that and use it in the interview.
Six person tag:
This seemed like an exciting match. It was a good way to continue the three rivalries. The action involving Hardy and Kennedy in particular was well written. I wasn't expecting Mickie to get the win over Phoenix at all, I was actually expecting cody to get the win over Carlito. Mickie winning is interesting, although I think that Phoenix will come out on top when it really matters. But Mickie is looking strong going into C.S which is good. None of the men lost the match, I think this is good as it means you can continue their rivalries without one of them looking weaker, if that makes sense Lol.
This was another good interview with Orton making himself look strong. The comments about each of the options were good, the one about Triple H in particular. It seems you are slightly pushing for Triple H to face Orton at Cyber Sunday.
This was very funny, but it seemed a bit out of nowhere.I don't know where his hatred for JR came from, but the comments about the barbecue were very funny. Marrella seems to be insulting everyone at the moment, so no doubt someone will eventually shut him up. I think with the D.H Smith video playing, it might be him to shut Marrella up. I think Marrella would be a good person to put Smith over. It'll be good to see what happens.
This was good little seg, although I think it was obvious that Punk wouldn't leave. The comment Punk made about the shower was good.
Dreamer/Richards vs. cade/Murdoch:
I was suprised to see this match on the card since it's also going to be at Cyber Sunday. But it is a good thing to do by having a non-title match first, and this thing is used a lot IRL too. I wasn't suprised to see Dreamer and Richards win, as they now look strong going into Cyber Sunday. I can't decide where you are going with this, so it'll be interesting to find out. But at the moment Richards and Dreamer are favourites.
This was good. I was expecting Triple H to win the first couple of matches, which he did. The endings for the matches were well written. I was suprised to see Deuce and Domino on Raw, but I suppose you needed some heel tag teams. The final match was exciting, having Orton not wanting to get involved was good and realistic. I was expecting Triple H to beat Morrison, but having Morrison get disqualified was a good way to end it. I was expecting Punk to come down, which he did. It'll be interesting to see if Punk gets punished for coming down. I liked him giving Orton the GTS, he looks strong going into Cyber Sunday now. VOTE PUNK! Either way, the WWE title match should be good.
This was a good show Nige, the storylines are building very well. The matches were good, promos too, you had some good interviews too. The Vince/Triple H feud is building up very nicely, I can't wait to find out where it goes. Cyber Sunday should be great, the card looks strong. Good show, keep it up!
