TPIB 62 Posted June 14, 2007 Share Posted June 14, 2007 (edited) Credit: WWE.com At the end of RAW last week, Mr. McMahon was presumed killed in a horrific limo explosion — a moment that will forever taint what was otherwise a historic WWE Draft. As RAW heads into the Coliseum in Richmond, VA this Monday night, it's Superstars must cope with the fact that WWE’s Chairman is for all intents gone, his body seemingly lost in the flames that engulfed his limousine. It’s hard to focus past the black cloud that has encircled World Wrestling Entertainment all week long. No one will speak ill of the deceased, though it was apparent after last week’s “Mr. McMahon Appreciation Night” that many of WWE’s Superstars, our fans and numerous celebrities saw him as a pathetic, power-mad dictator. But now that he’s gone, what exactly does he leave behind? And how will it affect RAW’s Superstars in Richmond this Monday night? As for the WWE Draft itself, last week RAW said goodbye to The Great Khali, Torrie Wilson, Chris Masters and Ric Flair; however RAW also welcomed its newest Superstars to the roster: King Booker, Queen Sharmell, Snitsky, Mr. Kennedy and Bobby Lashley. Needless to say, all will have a profound impact on RAW in the coming weeks. However, Lashley — who was stripped of his ECW World Title after being randomly selected in the Draft — is planning to make his mark a little quicker than the rest. He had already established a strong RAW presence during his rivalry with Mr. McMahon over the past few months; does he have an advantage over the other “newcomers” as they enter the Richmond Coliseum this Monday? In the ashes of tragedy, life begins anew on RAW, Monday night at 9/8 CT on USA. Richmond, VA- Mickie James' Hometown Conf. Matches/Events "First RAW Without Mr. McMahon" Possible RAW Return of Snitsky, Daivari, King Booker, & William Regal Possible RAW Debut of Lashley, Paul London, Brian Kendrick, Queen Sharmell, Jillian, Sandman & Mr. Kennedy I am aware that Lashley, Sharmell, & Kennedy have appeared on RAW before, but I am talking in terms of their debut as RAW Superstars. With that said, WWE has talked like Kennedy isn't ready to return yet. Also, the RAW returns and debuts stated above are just assumed by me (seeing as Booker is in the WWE Title match at Vengeance, I expect him and Sharmell to show). It's hard to believe, but Vengeance is this Sunday night (June 24'th). I say that it's hard to believe because only two (as of the post date for this thread) matches of the nine have been announced (Edge Vs. Batista in a Last Chance Match for the World Heavyweight Title and Cena Vs. Orton Vs. Foley Vs. Booker Vs. Lashley in a Challenge Match for the WWE Title). Which means that WWE has three shows to announce seven additional matches. Edited June 18, 2007 by TPIB Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
