RAW Discussion Thread- February 18, 2008 from Anaheim, CA (#769)

One night after No Way Out, RAW will be heading to sunny Anaheim, Calif. Unfortunately for Hornswoggle, he won’t have much of a chance to work on his tan. Mr. McMahon arranged a Steel Cage Match with the little leprechaun after his illegitimate son — with help from a defiant Finlay — defeated him last week in a No Disqualification Match.

 

This week, though, not even Finlay will be able to interrupt Mr. McMahon’s lesson in tough love, leaving Hornswoggle to his own devices. Just how will the little guy fare one-on-one against his spiteful dad in the unforgiving confines of a steel cage? Will Mr. McMahon really unleash fury on Hornswoggle, or is he simply trying to scare his illegitimate son?

 

Time to Play the Game at 'Mania

 

The night after No Way Out also sees Randy Orton return as WWE Champion. The “Legend Killer” actually lost his title match to John Cena by disqualification after purposefully slapping the referee across the face. The tactic, however cowardly, allows Orton to retain the gold since a title change can only occur as a result of a pinfall or submission. Will “The Champ” retaliate against Orton for robbing him of an opportunity at the main event at WrestleMania XXIV? And what’s next for Cena, now that he is out of the WrestleMania main event?

 

However, one Superstar who is WrestleMania-bound and has Orton in his crosshairs is Triple H. The King of Kings outlasted five fierce competitors to prevail inside the Elimination Chamber at No Way Out and earn a spot in the main event at WrestleMania XXIV. He left in his wake five battered and bloodied Superstars: JBL, Umaga, Chris Jericho, Shawn Michaels and Jeff Hardy. Will The Game have anything to say about his return to WrestleMania and his Chamber victory?

 

Money in the Bank, Hall of Fame, Playboy and 'Pretty Boy'

 

RAW will also feature a pair of firsts. The first Money in the Bank Qualifying Match for WrestleMania XXIV will be held at the Honda Center, as well as the announcement of the first member of the 2008 WWE Hall of Fame class, to be inducted March 29 in Orlando, FL.

 

There's also the matter of Santino Marella's ultimatum. Last week, he gave his "girlfriend" Maria until this Monday night to choose between him or posing for Playboy. What exactly will the beautiful Diva decide?

 

And finally, after his controversial appearance at No Way Out, WBC Welterweight Champion "Pretty Boy" Floyd Mayweather, Jr. will be at RAW tonight in Anaheim.

 

The only way to find out the answers to these questions and more is to tune in to RAW, live on the USA Network at 9/8 CT.

I expect Cena to be in some sort match to get himself inserted into the title match at Mania tonight but that will be secondary now I have seen thanks to Omar that Mayweather will be there, hopefully what he is up to will be as a good as at NWO!

Ah delightful.

 

Hopefully they'll do something major with him tonight and really play off how much of a big deal last night was.

 

As for everything else?

 

I imagine Cena will want a rematch and HHH gets involved.

Jericho and JBL to further their feud.

Hopefully they'll keep Jeff in focus too.

Maybe they could have Jeff push for the MITB match at 'Mania in interviews just like the way Y2J did it for the first MITB.

What if he actually does a serve and agrees to her doing it only for him to cheat on her with another play mate.

It's all fine and dandyapart from Vince forcing himself upon us as usual. Does anyone really give a flying forearm about Vince's son storyline, that has already won the gooker, and it's still going, AND GETTING WORSE!

The best thing to come out of this Maria/Playboy thing is to have Santino Marella "get with" Jillian Hall. Santino Singing? Golden. Let me be the first to predict that Rocky Johnson will be the first one announced to be inducted in the 2008 Hall of Fame since it is Black History Month. Granted, that could occur next week. I have a bad memory, did they announce Dusty Rhodes first or last last year?

 

Also, I went ahead and added "Big Show To Appear" to the card as he is in Anaheim and with Mayweather to appear, it seems almost too obvious that Show will appear, as well. Wrestling sites are saying there will be some sort of tag match at WrestleMania. I, for one, am pulling for a Boxing Match between Show and Mayweather. A tag match seems almost a lock anyways. The Oscar De La Hoya rumor makes this even more interesting.
