World Wrestling En tertainment plans to begin the July 4th holiday with a bang on Monday Night RAW.
D-Generation X members Shawn Michaels and Triple H have reeked havoc with a lot of hijinks the last couple of weeks. But the WWE chairman Vince McMahon says DX is banned from the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia. Yeah, right.
Also, WWE champion Rob Van Dam, John Cena and Edge will be involved in a pick your partner triple threat tag team match. Each superstar will get to pick their own partner.
Plus, a new tag team, the Highlanders, debut on RAW.
Monday night’s action begins at 8 on the USA Network.
Tuesday night on Extreme Championship Wrestling, RVD defends the WWE and ECW titles against Edge in an extreme rules match. I’m sure Cena will make an appearance as well.
Tuesday night’s show airs on Sci Fi at 9 from the original home of ECW, Philadelphia. Considering Philly fans weren’t thrilled and expressed their displeasure of the new ECW during a house show at the old ECW arena last weekend, it could be the last time an ECW show will be held in Philly.
SNME news: Speaking of RVD, Cena and Edge, they will be involved in a triple threat match for the WWE championship during NBC’s “Saturday Night’s Main Event” on July 15. The show will air from American Airlines Center in Dallas.
Angle out of action?: When Kurt Angle was moved from SmackDown to ECW, it was led to believe that the 1996 Olympic gold medalist was going to be the top star of the new brand. But Angle lost to Randy Orton during last Sunday’s “Vengeance” pay-per-view event and also lost to RVD at last Tuesday’s ECW show.
PWInsider.com reports Angle is currently scheduled to take a hiatus due to nagging injuries. Great, like the new ECW brand doesn’t have enough obstacles to overcome.
Wrestle B’ham: National Wrestling Alliance Wrestle Birmingham will hold a very intriguing card July 14 at the Zamora Shrine Temple in Irondale. Bell time is at 7:30 p.m.
The main event is a steel cage match between Dennis Condrey of the Midnight Express against the Masked Loverboy. B.G. James defends the Alabama heavyweight title against McNasty, who’s managed by the “Tennessee Stud” Robert Fuller.
Elix Skipper and David Young (also managed by Fuller) defend the Alabama tag team championships against Brad and Scott Armstrong.
In a gender clash, Fuller’s “Million Dollar Baby” Daff-ney defends the Alabama junior championship against former champion Mike Jackson.
In a return match, Jimmy Powell takes on the legendary Ricky Morton of the Rock and Roll Express.
Card subject to change.
