When Raw rolls into North Charleston, S.C. next Monday, don’t expect Randy Orton to shower his fellow Superstars with Southern hospitality. The WWE Champion was humiliated last Monday when he lost to Ric Flair, thanks to a well-timed distraction by Chris Jericho. Good thing for the Nature Boy, too, since Mr. McMahon has issued the ultimatum that if he loses, he’s forced to retire.
Since Flair’s next match could be his last, don’t expect “Naitch” to go quietly. But how much longer can he survive?
Also, when Raw GM William Regal yanked the rug out from under the tag team of Jeff Hardy and Triple H and pitted them against each other at Armageddon, The Game made it clear that he’s only looking out for himself. This leaves the “Rainbow-haired Warrior” in the unenviable position of being in the crosshairs of The Game. How will the high-flyer handle the pressure? Will he soar to overcome the 11-time Champion, or will he crash and burn?
And with Mr. Kennedy poking Shawn Michaels at every turn, can a foot-to-jaw reunion be far behind? The loudmouth from Green Bay, Wis. insists on antagonizing HBK, and believes The Showstopper’s time has come and gone in WWE. What will be the next chapter in this ever-escalating rivalry as Armageddon approaches?
For answers to all of these questions, tune into Monday Night Raw, live on USA Network, 9/8 CT.
