WWE.com has posted interviews with Edge and Foley, as well as a profile on tonight’s venue, The Pond, in advance of tonight’s RAW. Also, here is the official preview:
The Pond goes hardcore
May 8, 2006
Things are definitely going to get hardcore when RAW emanates from the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, CA. Mick Foley finally achieved his WrestleMania moment just one month ago when he faced Edge in the most brutal Hardcore Match in WWE history. Foley and Edge endured steel chairs, barbed wire, thumb tacks and even a flaming table, but Foley is hungry for more. Edge has accepted Foley’s challenge, and the Hardcore Legend is prepared to come out on top with the victory this time. Will these two Superstars be able to survive going to hell and back one again? Can Edge make it two in a row over the Hardcore Legend?
And Rob Van Dam will make his first Intercontinental Championship defense since winning it from Shelton Benjamin at Backlash. RVD will have his work cut out for him as it will be a Fatal Fourway Match with Tornado rules against Benjamin, Chris Masters and Charlie Haas. Can RVD come out on top when facing all four challengers at once?
Also on RAW, one week after being attacked by Mickie James on WWE.com Unlimited’s Kiss Cam, Maria will have Trish Stratus in her corner when she takes on the Women’s Champion in one-on-one action.
Plus, after taking one week off, Mr. McMahon will likely be back at the helm. What will The Chairman have to say after his special guest referee, Triple H, walked out of his officiating duties? Mr. McMahon warned The Game that if he didn’t obey his orders, then the next time he received a WWE Championship opportunity would be when he was an old man. Will the Chairman live up to his words? Will Triple H pay the price for leaving the main event of RAW?
And former World Tag Team Champions Kane & Big Show will face off in a clash of the titans. The issues between these two Superstars have been brewing for more than a month now, and it will all come to a head on RAW.
Don’t miss all of this and more on RAW tonight at 9/8 CT on the USA Network.
