WWE Monday Night Raw Preview May 31st, 2004
This week the superstars of Raw head to Montreal, Canada on the road to Vengeance.
Monday Night Raw is all everybody in the wrestling industry is talking about at the moment, after some huge events taking place last week. At the end of Raw last week, ‘The Big Red Machine’ Kane attacked Scott Steiner, tied him up backstage, and tried to light him on fire once the show went off the air. It has been reported that Steiner was able to escape, and no reported damage has been done. But this rivalry just continues to intensify week after week. First they sent each other flying off the Raw stage, then there’s been attack after attack, and Kane’s latest actions have taken this to a whole new level again. Steiner is a dangerous man as it is and he’ll surely have blood on his mind after what went down last week. With these two guys being in the same building it’s not a matter of if things will explode, but when.
Kane and Steiner’s issues all actually began due to the constant disagreements between Raw General Manager Eric Bischoff and Sheriff Stone Cold Steve Austin. The WWE board of directors have had enough of the power plays and bickering on Raw, therefore Vince McMahon announced a winner takes all match at Vengeance. Bischoff chose Goldberg to be his representative and last week Austin revealed Shawn Michaels to be his representative. Whoever’s rep wins has full control of Raw, whilst the loser will be out of a job. Caught up in the enjoyment of ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ nailing Goldberg with Sweet Chin Music last week, Austin delivered a celebration Stone Cold Stunner to Bischoff. Due to already being on probation, McMahon had no choice but to suspend Austin from Raw tonight, which means Bischoff is in charge. Who knows just what will take place with Bischoff having full reigns of the show?
With Shawn Michaels having returned from exile, this week on Raw we will be hearing from The Rock. The Rock has stated that he believes Michaels should just retire, and with HBK yet to win a big time match this year, his record doesn’t exactly do himself any favours. The Rock will be delivering a public service announcement via satellite from Hollywood tonight... and The Rock promises that his announcement will have HUGE repercussions regarding Vengeance. Just what this announcement will be is anybody’s guess; you’ll have to tune in to find out.
Bischoff has already jumped the gun, booking three matches for this week’s Raw. We will see Booker T go one on one with Lance Storm, Garrison Cade and Mark Jindrak will take on Rosey and The Hurricane... and the main event will feature Batista and Matt Hardy going up against Chris Jericho, and the WWE Intercontinental Champion Maven!
We’ve got all of this, and MUCH, MUCH more, as the Raw superstars thirst for Vengeance heats up The Great White North...
