Preview: Eyes on the prize
July 16, 2007
It’s going to get even hotter in Corpus Christi, Texas when Raw invades the American Bank Arena Monday night.
On the last Raw before The Great American Bash, WWE Champion John Cena and No. 1 contender Bobby Lashley will be back under the same roof. While away from Raw last week, Cena appeared via satellite and promised to address Lashley in Corpus Christi. How will Cena react to being nearly broken in half on Raw two weeks ago by Lashley’s spear? What will The Champ have to say to his challenger as they head into their epic encounter at The Bash?
Another champion who will defend at The Bash is Women’s Champion Candice Michelle. The Candy-coated Diva has been on an amazing roll of late, which includes winning the title from Melina at Vengeance: Night of Champions. Will either Diva gain any advantage just days before they face off over the championship? Can Candice continue to prove herself to be the golden Diva of WWE, or will Melina’s desire propel her to the top once more?
One Raw Superstar who is at the top of his game is Randy Orton. The third-generation Superstar has time and time again cemented his place in history by dealing losses to any Legend he has encountered in the ring. This time, however, he may have angered the wrong Legend in “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes. The two will square off at The Great American Bash in a Texas Bull Rope Match, and how fitting it is that the last stop before The Bash is the Lone Star State. Who will carry the momentum heading into The Bash?
Find out the answers to all of these questions and more on Raw, Monday night at 9/8 CT on USA Network.
