DirecTV Raw Preview
Well, no one did outstanding on the WWF Message Board prediction contest this month as rapt00r, HappyScrappy, Mighty2J, Clemson Guy, Superglue and myself all finsihed with a dismal 3-3.
WWF titles followed by the RAW IS WAR titles (I'm working on that song. I downloaded it off Napster and I'm working on the words.). We go inside the Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN for the pyros less than 24 hours after Judgement Day and five weeks from King of the Ring.
No Chance hits in the arena right away. Vince McMahon makes his way to the ring. Vince says Judgment Day is supposed to be a day when the world as we know it comes to an end and that was the case for many WWF superstars last night. An ASSHOLE chant starts and interrupts Vince. Vince says based upon the results of Judgement Day, the McMahon-helmsley faction and DX must be living their lives correctly and they rewarded themselves with a lavish party and that's why he don't look like himself tonight. None of Corporation X will look good when the get here.
DX set the table for the Dudley Boyz and beat them at their own game. Shane, who came from Vince's loins, singlehandedly defeated the largest athlete in the world today by pinning his shoulders to the mat. And finally, HHH. Vince has never been more proud of a family member. Last night, HHH singlehandedly proved why he is the game Even though the Rock attempted to employ the services of the Undertaker, HHH became the WWF Champion. As for the Undertaker, it's been nice without the Undertaker. He walked out on his contract sometime ago. If in fact, UT shows up tonight, marshals will arrest Taker if he shows up because he is not legally under contract.
As for the Rock. Vince is not so sure the Rock will show up tonight. Vince don't know if Rock will swallow his pride and show up tonight, but if he does, tonight will be a good night for Vince to go one-on-one with Rock, but that's not gonna happen. Should the Rock show up, he will face Road Dogg, X-Pac, Shane McMahon, and HHH. All Vince can say is at Judgment Day, they took the WWF Championship from the Rock, tonight, they will simply take what's left.
JR and Lawler talk about the Iron Man Match last night and the controversial ending.
Vince walks behind the curtain and Rock walks up behind and beats the hell out of Vince McMahon. Vince begs for his life, but Rock hits him with a trash can anyway. Vince gets thrown on top of his limo then Rock throws him in it and tells the driver to get this asshole out of here.
Moments ago....Rock attacking Vince backstage.

Trish Stratus comes out with her boys and says it's come to her attention all the little girls love the Hardyz, but how could you not with their rainbow colored hair, and high flying moves. They might like them, but she doesn't, so tonight, those boys are going to face her men and we'll find out just how hard they are.

Six Man Tag Team Match
The match starts on the ramp and Rikishi and Christian are the first ones in the ring. Samaon drop by Rikishi on Edge and Scotty throws Kurt to Rikishi in the ring. Kurt goes for the slam, but hurts his back. Scoop slam by Rikishi and he backs that ass up. Edge now thrown in and Too Cool follow. Double atomic drop and Edge retreats to the corner. Scotty backs dat ass up, then Grandmaster Sexay. Edge drops to his ass in the corner and gets the stinky face from Rikishi. Too Cool double team Edge and knock him out. Christian in the ring and they hit a double reverse flapjack. Scotty suplexes Christian and Sexay hits the hip hop drop, but Kurt Angle breaks the count. From behind, Scotty bulldogs Angle and goes for the worm. He gets to "R" and Edge nails Acotty with the tag belt. Angle takes advantage and puts on a half nelson pin combination.
Rock still on the prowl in the parking lot.
Fram Trap of the Week.....Shane dropping the speaker on Big Show last night at Judgement Day

Another limo pulls up and Shane gets out. Again, Brisco tries to warn him, but he ignores it. Shane is too euphoric over his win last night.
No Chance hits for the second time tonight and Shane McMahon makes his way to the ring. Shane starts out by rhyming like he's Dr. Suess. After last night, Shane takes exception to the SHANE'S A PUSSY chant. Yesterday was a wonderful day and he's put together a wonderful pictorial and they put it on the Titan Tron. Shane narrated the whole thing again by rhyming. Shane says from now on, he wants to be referred to as Shane the Giant Killer. If Big Show could walk down that ramp, history would repeat itself. No Chance hits to signal the end of the interview...or does it.....
If Ya Smell.... Rock comes down and decks Shane. Shane gets knocked over the rail and Rock chases him out into the crowd. Rock takes him outside and....
Moments ago....Rock interrupting Shane and kicking the crap out of him.

JR and Lawler show us stills of Judgement Day and the ending of the Iron Man match.
Michael Cole caught up with HBK after Judgement Day. Cole asks about the match. HBK says he called the match to the best of his ability. What does Cole and the rest of the world want with HBK? He did the best he could. Cole asks about Corporation X interfering. All HBK saw was Rock taking Shane and Vince off the apron. He got knocked out and the next thing he saw was Undertaker chokeslamming HHH which is a DQ. HBK says he's been here longer than anyone in the WWF and he can't make anyone happy. If you don't like it, tough.. and he walks away.
Essa Rios shown backstage in the Godfather's lockerroom. They walk out and run into Lita. They say a few things in spanish then Lita says it's all cool. They got a big match tonight so let's go.

Brisco, HHH, and Steph making their way towards the ring.
If Ya Smell.... and Rock makes his way towards the ring. The Rock has always said just bring it. Last night, HHH brought it all. Vince, Shane, X-Pac, Road Dogg and that 2 dollar slut you call a wife. After one hour, HHH gave all he could to the Rock and the Rock gave it all back. Even though HHH walked out with the title last night, he never beat the Rock. Rock tells HHH to enjoy the WWF title because in due time, the Rock guaran-damn-tees he will be the champ again. Speaking of champions, the entire world witnessed the return of the Undertaker. Though Taker did the right thing, he did it at the wrong time. He did it on the Rock's time. As for tonight, Vince McMahon, after the Rock went an hour last night, you think you can finish the Rock off in a handicap match. X-Pac and Road Dogg are probably back there sucking it with each other and Vince has taken a ride down Got you ass kicked blvd. As for Shane, the entire building witnessed simply, Shane McMahon has left the building. Which brings the Rock to HHH. The Rock could have whipped HHH back in the dressing room but he wanted to wait because now, instead of four on one, it's one on one. Rock said he wait until he came out here and he'd kick HHH's candyass all over Indianapolis.
Game hits after a long dramatic pause and HHH and Stephanie make their way out. HHH holds up the belt he took from Rock last night. HHH says before he walks down the ramp and kick Rock's ass, he wants to say a little something. Yesterday, they wen through hell. A SLUT chant breaks out and HHH says he's in no mood for their crap today so shut it. HHH says Rock gave it all he had and HHH gave it all he had and they did make history because the two greatest athletes in the WWF today went 60 minutes and lit the world on fire. Yesterday, however, was Rock's Judgement Day and he was punished while HHH was rewarded. At the end of that 60 minutes, HHH felt it all slide out of Rock. Rock was the great one, but at the end, HHH could feel it all come out of him. HHH said Rock couldn't hang with him, but there's not shame in that. You can say what you want, but HHH never beat him, but their are two men out here tonight. One is in the ring (Rock) and he is a loser. The other is on the ramp (HHH) and he is a winner. The fact of the matter is after all the smoke had cleared, HHH was the WWF Champion because he is the game-uh and because he is (audience finishes) that damn good.
Rock hold up a hand and a ROCKY chant breaks. Rock says just bring it. HHH throws down his mic and the belt, loses the jacket and makes his way to the ring. HHH steps on the ring apron, but hesitates getting in. Rock waves for him to come in and they stare each other down. HHH cautiously enters the ring and they go right after each other with rights. Rock is in total control and X-Pac and Road Dogg come down. Rock takes them all out. Shane comes through the crowd and Rock takes him out. Brisco helps Vince McMahon down and Rock takes him down with a blown Rock Bottom. They get up and Rock hits it. Road Dogg finally takes Rock out and they all beat on him. They get the steps in the ring and...
...the little girls from the Judgement Day commercial appear on the Titan Tron and a message appears that says Judgement Day is now. American Badass blares over the speakers and Undertaker comes out. X-Pac charges and gets taken out followed by Road Dogg, Shane, Brisco, and Vince. Undertakers starts kicking ass, but doesn't take any names. Taker rudes his bike around then chases the Regime to the back. Still in the ring, HHH sets Rock up for a pedigree on the steel stairs. Rock countes with a backbody drop off the stairs and knocks HHH out of the ring. They continue to brawl outside and they get on the announce table. HHH again tries to pedigree Rock, but Rock lowblows him and Rock Bottom's HHH through the table. Rock takes off the $500 shirt and gets back in the ring. Steph and Tori tend to a fallen HHH while Rock smells it in the ring. Close up of the crowd...fade to black...
FINAL WORD-HOLY COW! The crowd was into this one the whole night. I was a little worried when I saw the show was going to start and end with an interview. The matches were pretty good and a couple feuds were continued. The ending is beyond explainable. That was just awesome. I love Taker using Kid Rock's song.
