The husband and wife co-hosts of RAW kicked off the show as Ozzy Osbourne & Sharon Osbourne got things underway as Ozzy proclaimed that it was “all aboard” for Monday Night RAW and Sharon vows it will be a “crazy night” on RAW! The introductions were just about all The Osbournes got to say before the United States Champion, The Miz, interrupts Ozzy & Sharon. The self-proclaimed “awesome” Superstar claimed that he is a “bigger star” than the Guest Hosts and that he wants his count-out loss to Evan Bourne from last week “struck” from the record! Another couple of confident young Superstars interrupted Miz as Legacy made their way to the ring and calls Miz’s request “petty” and that they have a “real problem”; stating that their gift of a customized stock car to Randy Orton was defaced by Kofi Kingston last week. Legacy then requests a 2-on-1 Handicap Match against Kofi Kingston, but before Ozzy or Sharon can respond, Big Show comes out! “The World’s Largest Athlete” demands an “apology” from the entire RAW Roster for what happened to him on last week’s RAW and threatens to knock out the entire roster if The Osbournes don’t comply! D-Generation X then comes out and makes jokes at the expense of the four Superstars in the ring, calling them “ratings killers” before saying that they will give everyone “what they want”! Triple H then convinces Ozzy to make a match for the United States Championship between The Miz & Evan Bourne! Shawn Michaels then convinces Sharon to make a one-on-one match between Randy Orton & Kofi Kingston on RAW! Before getting to Big Show, the Unified WWE Tag Team Champion steps in and states that he sees what DX has planned and suggests a non-title Triple Threat Match between WWE Champion John Cena and DX in a “Survivor Series warm-up”! While Big Show convinced Ozzy to make one-third of that Triple Threat Match, Triple H quickly stepped in and had Ozzy put Big Show & Chris Jericho in as the other two competitors in the match! In just a few short weeks, Big Show & Chris Jericho will be in a Triple Threat Match against The Undertaker for the World Heavyweight Title at Survivor Series. Will Jeri-Show benefit from having a Triple Threat Match with the WWE Champion? Speaking of the WWE Champion, how will John Cena fare in a match against the Unified WWE Tag Team Champions?
The opening match of the night saw The Miz make his first successful defense of the United States Title with a win over Evan Bourne! Who will be the next challenger to face Miz for the gold?
Before his rematch with Jamie Noble, “The Celtic Warrior” Sheamus proclaimed that he would “end the career” of Jamie Noble! Unfortunately for Noble, that looks to be very likely after the events on RAW. With the intent to destroy on his mind, “The Celtic Warrior” dominated Jamie Noble throughtout their match to the point that the referee had to stop the match to protect Noble! However, Sheamus defied the orders of the referee and continued the assault on Noble, concluding it with a vicious powerbomb on the outside of the ring; a powerbomb that left Noble destroyed. Medics and referees came out to tend to Noble and load him on a stretcher. It would later be revealed that Noble suffered “severe back and neck injuries”, but that his specific status is unknown. Has Sheamus truly ended the career of Jamie Noble? What ramifications will “The Celtic Warrior” receive for his ruthless attack?
Moments before his match with Randy Orton, Kofi Kingston calls Orton a “bully” and proclaims that he will not be bullied by Randy Orton. Kofi then states that Orton needs to take a look at himself to see who truly cost Orton the WWE Title. A proud Kofi then said that he does not “regret” his actions last week!
Still reeling from Kofi’s actions last week, it appeared as Randy Orton had a devious plan in mind for Kingston as Legacy came out in the middle of the contest. Seeing that his fate was about to be sealed at the hands of Randy Orton & Legacy, Kofi launched himself onto the diabolical trio, taking them down on the outside! Kofi then rushed back into the ring as Orton & Legacy surrounded Kofi. Guest Hosts Ozzy & Sharon Osbourne then appeared and announced that the planned match will now be a 6-Man Tag with Randy Orton & Legacy going up against Kofi Kingston and, the team that beat Legacy last week, MVP & Mark Henry!
The sheer chaos of the 6-Man Tag paved the way for Mark Henry to plant Cody Rhodes with the World’s Strongest Slam and pick up the win for himself, MVP, & Kofi Kingston! How will Randy Orton & Legacy respond to this loss? Has Kofi found the perfect team to serve as the “equalizer” to help him combat Randy Orton & Legacy?
Being in charge of RAW as the Guest Hosts, The Osbournes decided to present the first ever “RAW’s Got Talent” and even brought The Great Khali back to be a third judge! After Santino Marella bit the head off of “a Batman” and Chris Masters impressed Sharon with his pectorial gifts, Chavo Guerrero & Jillian came out to present a duet to the judges! “The Mexican Warrior” and “The Sour Songstress” did not impress the judges, but Chavo & Jillian did not respond well to the disapproval and said they are not fans of The Osbournes! The duo then make their way into the ring and Jillian got in the face of Sharon Osbourne, who slapped Jillian! Chavo then got in the face of Mrs. Osbourne, but “The Punjabi Playboy” stood up and delivered a chop to the head of Chavo! Things just got worse for Chavo as Hornswoggle came out and delivered the Tadpole Splash to “The Mexican Warrior”!
Professional boxing’s “Hitman” will serve as next week’s Guest Host as British boxing great, Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton, will be in charge when Monday Night RAW come to Sheffield, England! What will Ricky Hatton have in store for the fans in his home country?
RAW would see the naming of a new #1 Contender for the Divas Title as Eve Torres, Gail Kim, Alicia Fox, & The Bella Twins took part in a 6-Diva Battle Royal to determine the next challenger for the Divas Title held by Melina! After Gail Kim and both Bella Twins were eliminated from contention, Jack Swagger came to ringside to “observe” Eve Torres. However, Swagger’s observation contributed to Eve getting eliminated from the match! After overpowering and eliminating Kelly Kelly, Alicia Fox got back on the horse as she is once again the #1 Contender for the Divas Title! With a new champion to challenge, can Alicia Fox finally win the Divas Championship?
Then it was time for a main event with major Survivor Series implications as, with DX providing their unique guest commentary at ringside, WWE Champion John Cena battled the Unified WWE Tag Team Champions, Big Show & Chris Jericho, in a non-title Triple Threat Match! The end of the every man for himself bout came when Cena hoisted Jericho up for the Attitude Adjustment. When it looked like “The Champ” was on the fast track to winning the match, Big Show used his devastating knockout punch to leave Cena laying; allowing Chris Jericho to steal the pin from his partner and win the match! However, Jeri-Show was not finished with the WWE Champion as they locked Cena in an agonizing combination of the Colossal Clutch and the Walls of Jericho! DX then rushed to the aid of John Cena, but Shawn Michaels was quickly left laying by the same knockout punch that had just left John Cena out of it! With his partner knocked out, Triple H was victim to the numbers game and ended up getting laid out by the Codebreaker! The Unified WWE Tag Team Champions were just that, “unified”, as they stood over the destruction of John Cena & D-Generation X. How will Cena & DX respond to Jeri-Show’s actions? What will happen to Jeri-Show when only one man can emerge as the World Heavyweight Champion at Survivor Series?
