WWE Monday Night Raw Preview- 11/7/05- Phoenix, Arizona
Monday Night Raw emanates this week from Phoenix and it will emanate WITHOUT it’s World Champion. Last week saw Batista not only subjected to a Four-On-One Handicap match against the Arabian Entity but also saw the Animal the victim of a heinous assault by his opponent come Summerslam, the Big Red Machine, Kane. Kane has been under the spell of Raw’s General Manager, Eric Bischoff ever since returning at Vengeance and the GM once again got one over on the World Champion last week. Bischoff has targeted the Animal after successfully capturing Shawn Michaels services at Vengeance and last week Bischoff even placed the Heartbreak Kid in charge of Raw, stating that the Showstopper would do his every request. Michaels however had left the building by the time Batista’s match began and this allowed Bischoff to weasel his way in, clearly tricking both Batista AND Shawn Michaels. Bischoff then goaded Batista towards the back, only for his path to be cut off by the rampaging Kane who would strike, delivering a brutal choke slam off the stage to a helpless Batista. It was confirmed earlier this week that Batista suffered a rib injury and will miss several weeks of action, perhaps even throwing the World title match at Summerslam into doubt.
Tonight, Kane WILL be in action and he will be up against yet another man Eric Bischoff has had his issues with of late, Chris Jericho. Bischoff will no doubt want Jericho to suffer the same fate as Batista and it is going to take a huge effort from Y2J to survive this challenge. What will the destructive GM have up his sleeve in this one? How far will Kane go this week? What role will Jericho’s rival Edge play in this thing tonight? And will Shawn Michaels finally speak up on just how he’s feeling being the ‘Personal Employee’, being the subject of Eric Bischoff‘s twisted games?
Confirmed for tonight and KICKING OFF the show will be Captain Charisma hosting the Peep Show and his guest? None other than ‘Double A’, ‘The Enforcer’ himself, Arn Anderson!! Anderson is a long time friend of Christian’s bitter rival Ric Flair and will no doubt be giving Christian an earful over his recent actions. Christian will face Flair at Summerslam with Flair’s career hanging in the balance. AA is bound to have something in store for the cocky Captain Charisma but what will Christian have in mind to ask the former Horseman? It is sure to be a blockbuster way to kick off Raw!
Speaking of Ric Flair, he too will be in action on Raw and it will be a hell of a challenge for the Sixteen time World Champion as he must take on ‘The Protégé’ Mark Jindrak! Jindrak has been hugely impressive since aligning himself with William Regal, dismantling the Big Show at Vengeance and will now get another big opportunity tonight when he faces Flair. A win for Flair would no doubt see his confidence soar heading into Summerslam while a win for Jindrak would continue to see his stock rise. Who will leave Phoenix with the momentum behind them?
Two more big match ups are also scheduled for Raw. The first of which will see the young tag team of Ken Doane and Nick Nemeth take on the Basham Brothers! Doane and Nemeth; The Platform to Perfection are undefeated since joining the Raw ranks, knocking off the tag champs in the process last week. The Bashams are seeking gold also and a win here would no doubt catapult them into the title hunt. Who will walk out one step closer to gold?
And the Intercontinental Champion will also be in action as Muhammad Hassan will go one on one with Charlie Haas. Haas’ tag team partner Shelton Benjamin has fell short in his efforts of late to recapture the Intercontinental title but a win here tonight for Haas would no doubt propel the duo back into the title mix. Haas accidentally cost Benjamin last week in his match with Edge and he’ll be keen to make up for that error this week by taking his partner’s rival down a peg. Hassan on the other hand will want to add more misery to Benjamin and Haas’ recent woes.
You won’t wanna miss this blockbuster edition of Monday Night Raw!
