Wwe Raw On Spike Tv 4/12/04

From wwe.com

The final RAW before Backlash comes to you from Chicago, and it was already announced that RAW will feature a thriller of an Eight Man Tag Team Match. By order of RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff, all four members of Evolution will face Chris Benoit, Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley and Shelton Benjamin. The question is, what condition will Benoit and company be in for the match. Last week, Evolution sent Benjamin to the hospital and later pulverized Benoit, Michaels and Foley to end the evening. Will they be able to recover for this match or will Evolution make their advantage even greater? Find out on RAW.



What other developments will take place during the final RAW before the pay-per-view event? Will there be more matches added? Will more stipulations be added for the existing matches? Only one way to find out ... watch RAW next week at 9/8 CT on Spike TV!


Thoughts for tonight..

Will they make the best out of the 8-man tag match?(or will it start at 10:55)
If HHH is the fall guy, does that guarentee him the Title at Backlash?
Eugene.....the Norman the Lunitic of this century? (am I dating myself here?)
Can Mick Foly read off the teleprompter this week any more then he did last week?
Is there still a ladies champ?
If so, where is she?
Will Christian learn to lay off the slivia while kissing? (so Trish can stop wiping her lip)
Will Austin be there?(not that ANY of us noticed he wasn't there last week)
Will they explain Rhyno's face change?
Who will Matt Hardy V 0.8 job to this week?
Will Johnny Nitro wrestle this week?
Anyone taking odds he is the ref for the 8-man tag?
Has HHH "misplaced" his "vitamins" only to have them found by Edge?
Is someone going to explain why Lita no longer wears thongs?


All joking aside, I am looking forward to my Eugene fix for tonight. I couldn't get enough of him last week, and SO look forward to seeing his first match, and better yet, his finishing move.

I can see it now........

King:What is this idiot doing now?
JR:I don't know, he is setting him up for something.
King:What is he.....is he drooling on him?
JR:I am not sure if this is supposed to happen King, this is a Slobber...
King:Just stop there, Slobber is all you have to say.
JR:Now he has him set up for a verticle suplex and has stopped.
King:They are both entirely slimly
JR&King: Ohhhhh
JR:A modified Brain Buster oh did he just take a ride.
King:Yeah, a Brain Buster by Eugene, fitting, guess we can rename that move the Short Bus.
JR:2....3 And Eugene wins this one with the Short Bus.

My responses to your thoughts for tonight...

I hope they do the 8-man tag at 7PM (oops, I mean 10PM) but they'll probably tease that match all night long and start it at 10:40.
I wouldn't be surprised to see HHH walk away with the title at Backlash. If that happens, I'd like to see Shelton pull a Hogan and challenge HHH right after the 3-way match and then beat him for the title.
What's this about Norman Smiley?
Sadly, my VCR didn't tape the first part of Raw last week so I missed the Foley interview.
You should watch Confidential...Victoria was in Mexico.
I think Christian salivates a lot so that Trish will be kept busy with wiping away the saliva and not talking.
Rhyno's face change? Did you already forget Wrestlemania's slogan?
Matt Hardy will lose to the Brooklyn Brawler tonight. (Harvey Wippleman is next week)
Johnny Nitro
I don't think he'll be the ref. Didn't they do that last week? My bet is on Charles Robinson
Edge probably got Lesnar's left over CellTech and NitroTech supplements as well.
I too miss the thongs

GOT ONE, now I wheel him in.

Norman the Lunitic. He was a wrestler in NWA/WCW in the late 80'2 managed by Teddy Long. Long, a heal, and Norman, a face forced to do the heels bidding, was a pretty good storyline. Since Regal is indeed a heel, and Eugene is getting some legit face heat, I can see this happening.

Link to Norman the lunitic.

Prediction. Lita beats up on Victoria tonight, then takes the mic and cuts a promo against Trish.

Eugene wins over Matt Hardy.

Edge spears Kane.

So have they called off the plans to make the main event at Backlash a ladder match or are they saving that development for tonight.

On a side note, I really think they missed an opportunity shunting HHH out of the main event and into a program with Shelton Benjamin after the last two weeks, but eh, what can you do?

Brian Lawler (f/k/a Brian Christopher, and yes he is Jerry's son). He was around (teamed up with Scotty 2 Hotty and Rikishi) a couple of years ago, until he was caught with ... illicit substances at the US/Canada border, at which point his employment with the WWE was terminated.

Well, apparently Jerry's got his stroke with the company back, guess we can expect that his latest GF will have a job with the company in short order.

Did the WWE lose a licence? Edge's music sucks again.

awesome main event--i regret not getting tics (it's 2 miles away)

if i go to hooters by the arena for a drink though now, i'll bet 1/2 the roster is there. they usually are.

So if Grandmaster Sexy is back.. why isn't he with Scotty 2 Hotty and Rikishi?

Once the ninja came out I thought it was a new Avatar costume for Al Snow.

Why is the old WCW World Heavyweight Championship belt held in higher esteem/regard than the WWF/E Champion belt? Is it because of Flair?

This is odd. Victoria has a PPV match... and it's a championship match. But she hasn't been seen on the show in a month. The Coach/Tajiri match has gotten more buildup. Did she go on vacation or something? Because if they knew she'd be gone for 4 weeks, they should've kept the belt on Molly so the matchup at Backlash would have some sort of story.

Kinda funny that Lawler's back just before a trip to Canada this weekend.

Wasn't it the Canadian border guard that found the drugs he was "carrying for a friend"?

Man I love him. *drool* Glad he's back in the WWE, even though he was even hotter wrestling for NWA (or whatever the losers go to after WWE)

I think it's because it's on the same show as HHH. if he was on SD the WWE belt would probably be the higher. although I'm probably wrong.
