WWE Monday Night Raw Preview- 18/7/05- Little Rock, Arkansas
Last week’s Raw saw yet another despicable display from Raw’s General Manager Eric Bischoff as he initiated a scathing plan to strike down Chris Jericho and it involved not just Bischoff’s recent go to monster, Kane or Jericho’s very own recent rival but it involved none other than the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels. The Big Red Machine Kane was scheduled to face Jericho but before the match could get underway, Bischoff reared his face and announced that the match would now be No Disqualifications AND Shawn Michaels would be forced to be the Special Guest Referee. It was a no win situation for the Shostopper as well as Jericho who in the end succumbed to a choke slam, a briefcase shot AND a spear from Edge before the final nail in the coffin being some Sweet Chin Music from an extremely remorseful Shawn Michaels.
Michaels would then count to three and give Kane the victory and the Heartbreak Kid knows that if he does that very same act at Summerslam we will crown a new World Champion when Kane meets Batista who is still currently sitting on the injured list. What will Bischoff have up his sleeve tonight and in particular what will have up his sleeve for Shawn Michaels? What we do know is that Chris Jericho, despite his beat down last week will be in attendance tonight and he WILL call out Shawn Michaels. Jericho will surely have a whole hell of a lot to say to Michaels following last week. Will Michaels finally show some emotion and reveal just why he’s obliging with everything the evil GM says? Or will Jericho, like the rest of us, be left searching for more answers?
Also confirmed for tonight is a big time main event! In a Vengeance rematch, Mark Jindrak will go one on one with the World’s Largest Athlete, Big Show. Jindrak dismantled the giant at Vengeance and Show has gone out of his way to get another opportunity to right a wrong, even threatening Eric Bischoff last week into making this match. Will Show get his revenge here tonight, or will he be the next victim in Bischoff’s firing line? And can Mark Jindrak prove his win at Vengeance was no fluke and that he is the total package?
Arn Anderson has been on a lot of people’s minds since last Monday’s Raw, following a heinous assault at the hands of Christian. Captain Charisma invited Double A to be a guest on his Peep Show but it turned out to be a grave mistake by Anderson as Christian inflicted a devastating beat down which left Anderson’s good friend Ric Flair absolutely seething. We can confirm that Arn Anderson IS on the mend following the assault and we can also confirm that both Christian and Flair will be in Little Rock this Monday night. There will no doubt be fireworks between the two as we inch closer and closer towards their epic showdown at Summerslam.
A World Tag Team title match is confirmed for tonight as well, the Dudley Boyz will defend their gold against the dangerous Basham Brothers. It was confirmed earlier in the week that over the next three weeks, the Bashams, the Entity and the Platform to Perfection will all get championship opportunities no matter who the champions may be. It could well be a very testing few weeks for the Dudleyz or a very brief title run for the Bashams. Who will walk out with the gold?
We are also guaranteed to hear from the returning Lita who shocked everyone last week by returning and setting her sights on the destructive Women’s Champion, Victoria. What will the Daredevil Diva have to say about her return and will Victoria face her challenge?
And finally, Charlie Haas stunned the Entity last week when he defeated their leader and Intercontinental Champion, Muhammad Hassan. Haas’ partner Shelton Benjamin has been relentless in trying to gain a title shot, however he has fallen short every time. Haas meanwhile has been relentless in trying to gain a Tag team title shot, wanting to divert Shelton’s attentions away from Intercontinental glory. Having scored a win last week, has Haas now propelled himself into the title hunt or is his main focus still on being the World’s Greatest Tag Team?
So many questions that we hope will be answered live this Monday night on Raw, it’s must see!!

Chris Jericho will call out Shawn Michaels;
