Now that the party is over…
August 21, 2006
At SummerSlam, Edge retained his WWE Championship when he slammed challenger John Cena in the back of the head with a pair of brass knuckles that were given to him by Lita. When Edge left the ring holding his WWE Championship proudly, Cena was visibly woozy and looked unsure of what had just taken place. Now that he’s had some time to comprehend just how badly he was screwed by Edge, will Cena have anything to say about it?
DX took on every “resource” that the McMahons threw at them at SummerSlam. By enlisting Kane’s help to take care of the undefeated Samoan Bulldozer Umaga, they were able to fend off the other Superstars that took the McMahons up on their offer. What will the Chairman do on RAW now that DX is still standing stronger than ever? With the impressive win, have Triple H and HBK regained control in their rivalry with Mr. McMahon?
While Kane wasn’t in action at SummerSlam, he will be on RAW. After defeating Shelton Benjamin to become the No. 1 contender to Johnny Nitro’s Intercontinental Champion two weeks ago on RAW, Kane will step into the ring with Nitro on RAW. Can the Big Red Monster be the one to strip Nitro of his championship?
Both Mick Foley and Ric Flair were left beaten and ravaged after their “I Quit” Match at SummerSlam. But, with Flair emerging victorious after Foley said “I Quit” to spare his friend Melina from being hit with a barbed wire baseball bat, will the Hardcore Legend have anything to say to his arch nemesis? Will he finally give the “Nature Boy” the respect he refused to give him before their epic encounter at SummerSlam?
Randy Orton came up short in his quest to kill the biggest Legend in WWE History. After being defeated by Hulk Hogan at SummerSlam, has the Legend Killer been humbled? Did Hogan teach Orton that respect in WWE is something to be earned, not taken?
The only place you’ll find the answers is on RAW, 9/8 CT on the USA Network.
