WWE RAW - May 23rd, 2005.
The opening WWE video, followed by the usual RAW video & pyro opens the show...
JR: Welcome to RAW everyone!
King: Tonight’s gonna be full of surprizes, huh JR?
JR: That’s right King, it’s Draft Night - and we’re gonna see the stars of both RAW & SMACKDOWN! switching sides, this is gonna be a hell of a show!
King: Let’s send it down to the SMACKDOWN side.
Tazz: Thanks King. This show is gonna be off the hook Cole!
Cole: Yeah, we know the draft is tonight, we know that stars will be switching shows, but we don’t know who has the first pick!
”No Chance”...We hear the entrance music of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon play throughout the arena as he enters the arena & heads to the ring, microphone in hand.
Vince McMahon: Are you ready to shake things up!
Vince McMahon: Good - ‘cause that’s what we’re doin’ tonight!
Vince McMahon: Now, I thought about fliping a coin to see who gets the first pick on RAW tonight, but I also thought that’s to big of a choice to decide by the flip of a coin! So I decided to have a match decide the decisionm between a RAW superstar and a SMACKDOWN superstar. I also thought that it should be a WrestleMania worthy match. And so I thought back to WrestleMania 21 & remember 2 SMACKDOWN V. RAW matches happening & since Randy Orton is on injury right now - I should make it - Shawn Michaels V. Kurt Angle in a WrestleMania Rematch to decide which brand will get the first pick!
JR: My God, Shawn Michaels V. Kurt Angle 2!
King: Yeah, and it’s next!
Tazz: Welcome back everybody, before comercial it was just announced that it’s gonna be HBK V. Angle right now - to determine which brand will get the first draft pick.
Cole: Yeah, & since JR & King got to call the first HBK-Angle match at WrestleMania, we get to call this one!
Shawn Michaels makes his way to the ring, anxiously awaiting his opponent so that he can try and strike revenge on him. Kurt Angle then makes his way to the ring accompanied by several “You Suck” chants.
