Welcome to the twenty-fifth edition of the WWE Week In Review. 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.

The 804’th edition of Monday Night RAW came to you from the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, TX.

Monday Night RAW
Good Week For: Batista (Gained Major Momentum Heading Into Cyber Sunday)
Bad Week For: Chris Jericho (Was Bested by Batista In The Main Event)
It Will Be Interesting Next Week For: Chris Jericho & Batista (To See Who Is Champion)
Best Mic Work: John Morrison

And In Other News…
-In Divas Tag Action, Kelly Kelly & Candice Michelle defeated Katie Lea & Jillian.
-Charlie Haas was also at it again, this time impersonating Stone Cold Steve Austin as Stone Cold Steve Haastin. He was still destroyed and pinned by JBL.
-Rey Mysterio defeated Snitsky by pin.
-ECW’s Miz & Morrison scored a win over RAW’s CM Punk & Kofi Kingston.
-There was scheduled to be a non-title match between Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase and Cryme Tyme, but the second-generation trio of Rhodes, DiBiase, & Manu instead assaulted and laid out Cryme Tyme.
-Also, Santino Marella came out dressed as all three of his possible opponents at Cyber Sunday- Goldust, Roddy Piper, & Honky Tonk Man. Jim Duggan came out to confront Santino following some insults by Marella. Duggan ended up taking a guitar shot to the head by Marella (who also got his mouth busted up in the process when a chunk of the guitar smashed him in the mouth).
-The unique main event was another "Adamle Original" as World Champion Chris Jericho & Batista would compete in a Two-Man Gauntlet Match where each superstar would take a turn facing one of three opponents. The two would face the same three opponents. First, Batista defeated William Regal, then Jericho also defeated Regal. Jericho lost to Mark Henry by DQ after using a belt shot on Henry. Batista then pinned Henry. With an assist from Batista, Kane pinned Jericho and Batista pinned Kane to win the Gauntlet Match.
-Also, it was announced on RAW that there will be a special 3-Hour RAW to celebrate RAW’s 800 Episodes in two weeks with a special start time of 8/7c.

The 124’th edition of ECW on Sci-Fi emanated from the Laredo Entertainment Center in Laredo, TX. Confirmed for the main event was a Triple Threat Match featuring all three potential challengers for Matt Hardy’s ECW Title at Cyber Sunday- Finlay, Evan Bourne, & Mark Henry.

ECW
Good Week For: Evan Bourne (Earned A Huge Victory En Route to Cyber Sunday)
Bad Week For: John Morrison (Got His Partner Disqualified)
