WWE Monday Night RAW Preview: Countdown To "The Stand"

Adam WrightSenior Analyst IMay 26, 2008


Monday Night RAW heads to the Rocky Mountains of Denver, Colorado, just six days before the Night of Extreme: One Night Stand.

Last week on RAW, four blockbuster match-ups were announced for the upcoming PPV.

Randy Orton and John Bradshaw Layfield earned rematches against their Judgment Day opponents, Triple H and John Cena. Not only that, but they also chose the stipulation that they wanted.

“The Wrestling God” JBL wants to punish John Cena, and at One Night Stand, he’ll get a chance to do so in his match of choice...FIRST BLOOD!

Randy Orton gets another shot at the WWE Champion Triple H when he faces “The Game” in the match he chose…LAST MAN STANDING! Will the Age of Orton resume at One Night Stand, or will “The King of Kings” continue his reign?

Tension will be high for these four competitors. What’s in store tonight on RAW? Who will get the much needed momentum?

Also announced last week, Jeff Hardy will face Umaga once again, but this time in a Falls Count Anywhere match at One Night Stand. Will “The Samoan Bulldozer” get his hands on Hardy before the match?

Finally, Batista earned his match at One Night Stand against Shawn Michaels, in a Stretcher Match! You better believe Batista will show no mercy against Michaels, who faked an injury against him at Backlash. Will these two men have one last face to face encounter before their match? No doubt harsh words will be said.

In other shocking developments, last week Mr. Kennedy defeated the King of The Ring winner, and now-former RAW GM William Regal in a “Loser Gets Fired” match. One day later, wrestling fans learned about Regal’s 60 day suspension. What does this mean for RAW? Who will be the new RAW GM? It is expected that a major announcement will be made on RAW tonight…

All this and more when you tune in to Monday Night RAW. The countdown to "The Stand" is on.
