WWE Week In Review XXII
September 28, 2008- October 4, 2008

Welcome to the twenty-second edition of the WWE Week In Review. As you can see, the Week In Review has undergone a "facelift" of sorts. Thanks to Chriscare & Boyo for the suggestions. Feel free to contact me on TWO or Wrestling 101 anytime with comments, questions, and anything in between. Also, check out my blog on Wrestling101.com.

With only six nights to go before WWE No Mercy in Portland, the 801’st RAW rolled into the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN. The main event would feature World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho teaming with protégé, Lance Cade to take on Shawn Michaels and a partner of his choosing. Also, in 8-Man Tag Action, Rey Mysterio, CM Punk, Kofi Kingston, & ECW’s Evan Bourne would team up to take on Kane, Cody Rhodes, Ted DiBiase, & Manu. In Divas Action, Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix would team with Jillian to take on #1 Contender Candice Michelle & Kelly Kelly.

-Also, RAW General Manager Mike Adamle announced that he accepted Kane’s request (per Kane’s winning of his match) that if Rey Mysterio loses in their encounter at No Mercy, Rey must unmask in the ring.

After ridding the ring of Jericho, Jeff laid out the WWE Champion Triple H with a Twist of Fate. Vladimir Kozlov emerged and laid out #1 Contender Jeff Hardy and WWE Champion Triple H.

Rundown for No Mercy
The 11’th annual WWE No Mercy will be live, this Sunday, from the Rose Garden in Portland, OR.
-World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho will defend his title against his very intense rival- Shawn Michaels in a Ladder Match.
-WWE Champion Triple H will attempt to fend off a gold-hungry Jeff Hardy as the two clash over the WWE Title.
-Since never being pinned to lose his champion, the World’s Strongest Man Mark Henry has been on a tear. At No Mercy, Henry will get an opportunity to get his gold back when he faces champion Matt Hardy for the ECW Title.
-Ever since his return at SummerSlam, The Undertaker has reeked havoc on SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero. Vickie found herself a large ally at Unforgiven in Big Show. With Vickie out of the picture and Show & Chavo not seeing eye-to-eye, will The Undertaker rid himself of the World’s Largest Athlete when the two face off this Sunday?
-In a grudge match that has become exponentially more personal and intense, the Master of the 619- Rey Mysterio will battle The Big Red Machine Kane. The twist is that if Rey loses, he must unmask live on pay-per-view.
-In a battle to determine the #1 Contender for the World Heavyweight Title, JBL will face The Animal Batista.
-In a rivalry that stretches all the way back to No Mercy from last year, Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix defends her title against Candice Michelle.
