San Antonio Shuffle: WWE RAW Preview

Adam WrightSenior Analyst IJune 23, 2008

Tonight is the night WWE fans have been waiting for! The night where the landscape of three brands will change. WWE RAW emanates from San Antonio, Texas, tonight for a three hour extravaganza.  It’s here! It’s time for a change; it’s time to shake things’s time for the WWE DRAFT!


Every superstar from RAW, ECW and SmackDown! will be in attendance tonight as they will see their fate. Who stays put? Who will be moved? Will Champions be filling out change of address forms? Will Tag Teams be split-up? So many possibilities, no one is exempt. Tune in tonight to see the fate of your favorite superstars.


No matter what happens tonight, Night of Champions will happen as advertised in just six days. The one night of the year where every Champion will defend their Title!


Vengeance Resurrected


Reigning WWE Champion Triple H will face John Cena in a match featuring two of the top superstars in the WWE today. But they haven’t looked that way as of late. For the second week in a row, last week RAW ended with both the Champion and the Challenger ending their nights on their backs. This time it was thanks to Chris Jericho and Lance Cade.


As Night of Champions approaches, which will get the important momentum? John Cena is hungry for the WWE Title, but is Triple H hungrier to keep it? Will either of them get some payback on Jericho and Cade?


WWE Women’s Champion Mickie James will face Katie Lea Burchill, a woman who has pinned the Champ twice in match-ups. Can Mickie James find a way to defeat the Brit this Sunday?


Opponents Still Unknown


The Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho will also be defending his Title at Night of Champions, but against who? Before he laid out Triple H and Cena, earlier that night, he was confronted by someone who we did not expect to see so soon.


The Nature Boy Ric Flair was fuming last week after Jericho’s actions against his friend Shawn Michaels. With six days left, what will Chris Jericho have in store? And what condition is Shawn Michaels? It is expected that he will be on RAW tonight. Will the Nature Boy also make an appearance?


And let’s not forget the World Tag Team Titles match where the champions Cody Rhodes and Hardcore Holly face Ted DiBiase Jr. and a mystery partner. We still don’t know who DiBiase will chose, how are the Champions going to prepare for an unknown opponent? And can they get along?


Finally, as this night wasn’t big enough already, Vince McMahon will be giving away another $1,000,000 of his own money. Will you be the lucky WWE American getting that phone call? You got to watch to win.


All this and so much more tonight! Remember, it’s a 3 hour special with THE WWE DRAFT!  Tune in at 8 p.m. EST on the USA Network or at 9 p.m. EST on The Score.
