WWF RAW Report for October 07,
Pictures credit: wwe.com RAW
- We start with a special Las Vegas opening, promoting tonight's Raw Roulette theme. Eric Bischoff is backstage and he welcomes us to Raw Roulette. Every match will be determined by the Raw Roulette wheel. Vegas offers lust, greed, unpredictability, and that's what this wheel provides. And with a flick of the wrist, we will find what tonight's first match will be. Bischoff spins the wheel, which lands on... Steel Cage Match! The Raw video plays, the pyros explode, and we are LIVE from the Thomas & Mack Center in Sin City, Las Vegas!
Bischoff tells Kane and
Hurricane that he hopes they don't end up like Booker. And now
Kane is Tag Champ and IC Champ, and at No Mercy he wants to get
the World Title? That's quite greedy, but in Las Vegas, greed has
consequences. They're going to defend the Tag Titles tonight, but
in what kind of match? Bischoff spins the wheel, which lands
on... TLC Match!
In the back, Terri asks Jericho why he attacked Booker T for no reason. Jericho says he did have a reason: he's sick of being overlooked by the jackasses here. Goldust says that Fozzy sucks, and then Booker T calls him a sucka, which causes him to lose the IC Title to Kane? This is what happens when people don't respect him. He was the first Undisputed Champion, and he's also a very unbalanced and dangerous individual. But he is not a sucka.
Through out the first segment
we're shown Christian, Bubba and Heff Hardy trying to find
suitable Tag partners.
Backstage, Terri asks Kane if he
will be at a disadvantage at No Mercy after having gone through a
TLC Match tonight. Kane says he's actually happy, for the first
time in his life. He has a chance to be the first man to hold the
Tag Titles, IC Title, and World Title at the same time. He knows
he can do it, and Triple H knows he can do it. He can be in all
the TLC Matches you want, and Triple H can make all the threats
he wants, but he will do this. Coach comes up and tells them that
Triple H and Flair are beating up Hurricane.
We cut to another backstage area where, indeed, Triple H and Flair are in fact beating up on Hurricane. Kane gets there and helps the referees pull Triple H off Helms.
