Pictures credit: wwe.com RAW
- RAW is LIVE from Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, California!
Backstage, Booker T and Goldust
welcome a bunch of other wrestlers (KANE, Big Show, Jeff Hardy,
Steven Richards, etc.) to a presentation of something scary,
something hideous. So they roll the footage and it's of Sunday
night's segment where Rikishi ended up stink facing Eric
Bischoff. Goldust says that he hasn't seen anything that bad
since Chris Jericho's latest Fozzy concert. Goldust then says he
has a special portrait and he shows it and it's Rikishi's butt
superimposed on Bishoff's face. In the back, Rico peeks in and
says that he will tell Eric Bischoff about all this.
Rico runs to tell on the guys, which infuriates Bischoff - Bischoff stomps to the ring and, after calling out Booker T, announces the matches the boys in the back will have to have to satisfy his injured pride.
They show footage of KANE backstage getting ready for his match.

In the back, Terri asks Hurricane why he was chosen as Kane's partner. Helms says that they both wear masks, they both use the chokeslam, and they both have the most impressive phsyiques in the WWE. Truth be told, he's been looking for a sidekick for a long time. . . .
Kane comes up and Helms insists that was HurriHumor. Kane says that the real reason he chose Helms was because Hurricane's a freak just like him, and freaks are cool.
