December 16, 2007
After scores are settled and titles were decided at Armageddon, our Superstars will “wing” it to Buffalo, N.Y., and the HSBC Arena for Monday Night Raw.
WWE Champion Randy Orton almost failed to weather the assault from challenger Chris Jericho. It took the surprising interference from SmackDown commentator John Bradshaw Layfield to allow Orton to escape with his gold via disqualification.
Why did JBL attack Jericho? Y2J has invited the self-proclaimed “wrestling god” to appear on Raw and address the controversial ending to the WWE Championship Match. Will JBL show up? Will Y2J seek revenge on the Legend Killer and/or JBL on the shores of Lake Erie?
Ric Flair was on the winning side last week as Evolution reunited at Raw’s 15th Anniversary Spectacular. But the Nature Boy will have his career on the line once again tonight as he battles the Samoan Bulldozer, Umaga, one-on-one in the ring. Will the crafty 16-time World Champion be able to conquer the powerful former Intercontinental Champion? Or will Buffalo be the final stop in the illustrious career of the Nature Boy?
Randy Orton already knows who he’ll defend his WWE Championship against at the Royal Rumble in January. Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy stunned the Mellon Arena crowd with a victory over Triple H to earn a WWE Championship opportunity at the Rumble next month. What does Orton have to say about his upcoming challenge? How will Triple H react to Hardy’s upset win? Will he want a rematch from the “Rainbow-haired Warrior?”
Shawn Michaels picked up an impressive win over Mr. Kennedy at Armageddon. Fireworks will fly in Buffalo tonight as HBK teams with Jeff Hardy to face Kennedy and Orton in tag team action.
The title train keeps on rolling for Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix. Can anyone in the Divas locker room rise up and upset the Glamazon to take her gold after her victory over Mickie James at Armageddon? First, the Divas will have their hands full in a “Santa’s Little Helpers” tag team match to kick off the event with a healthy dose of holiday cheer for our fans.
Find out as Monday Night Raw airs from Buffalo, N.Y., tonight at 9/8 CT, live on USA Network.
