BISCHOFF EXERTS HIS AUTHORITY;
ANNOUNCES FIVE HUGE MATCHES


May 10, 2004

General Manager Eric Bischoff has already announced several blockbuster matches for Monday Night RAW, airing live at 9/8 CT on Spike TV. Undoubtedly, the RAW brand has not seen a lineup this loaded since the Backlash pay-per-view.
When the members of Evolution complained vehemently after a six-man tag team match that kicked off the May 3 episode of RAW, Bischoff immediately signed three matches for this coming Monday. First, Triple H will try to beat Shelton Benjamin, finally, as the former World Heavyweight Champion will go one on one with the youngster from Orangeburg, S.C. -- who has quite a winning streak going, particularly over the members of Evolution, including consecutive wins over The Game himself. Be sure to tune in exactly at 9/8 CT, as the Triple H/Benjamin match will kick off the show. Also, Batista will try to exact revenge when he takes on Tajiri, who sprayed the green mist in the eyes of the powerhouse.

Bischoff also announced that the Intercontinental Championship will be on the line, as Randy Orton will defend against the man who pinned him in the six-man tag match, Edge. This match will mark the first time the Intercontinental Championship has been defended on RAW since February.

After announcing those three huge matches, Bischoff dropped another bombshell: Chris Jericho will be able to get his hands on Christian without the threat of outside interference. That's because Trish Stratus and "problem solver" Tyson Tomko will literally be blocked from the ring by a 15-foot-high steel cage! That's right -- Y2J and Christian battle in a Steel Cage Match this Monday on RAW!

And there's more: Eugene will make his anxiously anticipated in-ring debut as he tangles with Rob Conway of La Resistance. The American turncoat, who recently relocated to Quebec, is coming off a huge win over The Hurricane, which Conway said was a preview of what's in store for Eugene. However, Eugene appeared to be a quick study -- indeed, he seemed to have uncanny strength, and he took to the mat like a fish to water -- during a training session with William Regal.

To reiterate, five HUGE matches have already been announced for RAW:
Triple H vs. Shelton Benjamin
Batista vs. Tajiri
Randy Orton vs. Edge for the Intercontinental Championship
Chris Jericho vs. Christian in a Steel Cage Match
Eugene Dinsmore vs. Rob Conway

Plus, what will Matt Hardy and Lita have in store for Kane, and vice versa? What will Shawn Michaels have to say after Triple H cost him the World Heavyweight Championship?

All this and more on Monday Night RAW, 9/8 CT on Spike TV.

Interesting.

I'm looking forward to the cage match (they're always entertaining) and the HHH / Benjamin match. I could do without HHH but I think Benjamin has potential...

dancinns 05-10-04 03:04 PM

I'm looking forward to Raw tonight. It should be a damn_good show.

PixyJunket 05-10-04 03:33 PM

Should be a hot show.. with the exception of Kane and Edge that is. :(

KnightLerxst 05-10-04 04:15 PM

Woo hoo...the return of the Baltimore Bash...

They had better freaking do it in Baltimore...it is tradition...

Nah, thats cool, I can go, its right down the street at the Scope!


But once again, this makes no sence.

RAW has the NWA/WCW title "line" so to speak. Why the "NWA/WCW" PPV name for the WWF Title brand show?

Hello??


And swap the US and IC titles. Make Raw the WCW type show.

I was talking to a buddy of mine about this not to long ago. He said the whole point was to shuffle the titles so you don't get the impression of one of the brands basically being WCW.

I like the idea of bringing back the old ppv names...bring on Starcade!!!

Not BattleBowl? ;)

Will Triple H get his win back and then some from Shelton Benjamin?

Timber 05-10-04 08:23 PM

Baltimore is a tradition. I went to like 3 in a row in the late 80's early 90's. I guess it's the Bash in name only with none of the tradition.

I can only imagine how they would ruin the Starcade name. I always used to look foward to what the name was going to be. Chi-Town Heat a personal favorite. The Night of the Skywalkers wasn't bad either.

Steam 05-10-04 09:31 PM

Chi-town Heat was a lame nickname but you can't complain with a PPV that includes Steamboat winning the title.

Wasn't it at a Bash event in Baltimore where Luger got screwed out of the title because his head was bleeding? He had Flair in the rack but lost because he had a cut on his head that wasn't even as bad as when I cut myself shaving. One of the lamest finishes......EVER!

mikewendt 05-10-04 09:40 PM

Jesus!!! Nidia's tits are all over the place!

It wasn't Steamboat it was Garvin.

If you think that was a lame ending imagine being in the upper deck at the areana and thinking that Luger won the title only to have some BS finish.

POWERBOMB 05-10-04 09:57 PM

We
Want
Eugene!

mikewendt 05-10-04 10:36 PM

Let's be honest, Eugene is the second coming of Hacksaw Jim Dugan... Minus the board.

dancinns 05-11-04 12:09 AM

But I think that Eugene can actually pull off more than 5 moves.

and I think this is going to become a weekly thing for me... Gail Kim :drool:

I hope Gail beats the goodness out of Victoria and forces her to go insane.

Well, I'm glad I was looking forward to this match. Another HHH/HBK match, who would've guessed. :rolleyes:

Nope, I was referring to Chi-Town Heat which is the PPV where Steamboat beat Flair for the NWA title back in February 1989. I remember cause I called one of those hotlines to find out the results that night. I was a huge Steamboat mark.

I read on some site
Spoiler:
it will be Hell in the Cell at the next PPV


Also (possible spoiler for battle royal next week)
Spoiler:
I think Kane is challenging Benoit, so he may win the battle royal.
