Official WWE.com RAW Preview: The Animal’s Big Bash
Since CM Punk became World Heavyweight Champion, he has been mobbed by Superstars hoping to get their opportunity to win it away from him. With neither a General Manager or the WWE Chairman to set matches, last Monday night saw John Cena, Batista, Kane and JBL face off in a Fatal Four Way Match to determine which of them should face Punk at The Great American Bash. Batista won the contest and will compete for the World Title in just two short weeks. How will The Animal garner momentum in the coming weeks?
After Batista pinned Kane in the Fatal Four Way, the Big Red Monster went on a rampage outside the ring, manhandling WWE production crew and announcers alike, including Jerry “The King” Lawler. While tearing apart the ringside area, Kane screamed “Is he alive or is he dead?” Who is the Big Red Monster referring to, and what other outbursts can we expect from him in the coming weeks? Who is “He”? View and vote now!
Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston won his title from Chris Jericho at Night of Champions, and managed to successfully defend it against Y2J. On Monday he continued his winning streak on Raw by defeating Charlie Haas. Before the Jamaican Champion could soak in his victory however, he was brutally assaulted by Paul Burchill, who performed his signature Curb Stomp on Kingston. Does Burchill have his eye on Kingston’s Intercontinental Title? And how long until he faces the Jamaican Superstar in the ring?
In addition to facing one another as part of a Fatal Four Way, John Cena took an extra act of retribution against JBL on Monday Night. Retaliating for being escorted out by the self-made millionaire’s private security force the week before, Cena and Cryme Tyme took crowbars and baseball bats to JBL’s limo. To what lengths will the Longhorn Loudmouth go to get back at the Chain Gang Commander?
To catch all the build up to The Great American Bash, make sure to tune into Raw, Monday nights at 9/8 CT, only on USA Network.
