Preview: Champions-only challenge
July 23, 2007
John Cena overcame another massive challenge to his WWE Championship when he defeated Bobby Lashley in a classic at The Great American Bash. Meanwhile, Candice Michelle cemented her hold on the Women’s Championship with a hard-fought victory over Melina. These two champions will unite when they team up on Raw to take on Intercontinental Champion Umaga and World Tag Team Champions Cade & Murdoch in the first-ever Champions Only Match.
One Superstar who had a milestone victory at The Bash was Randy Orton, who defeated Dusty Rhodes in a Texas Bull Rope Match to add another conquest to his long list of destroyed legends. However, Orton tried to severely injure the “American DreamÃ¢â‚¬Â with a vicious punt to the head, but Dusty’s son Cody intervened.
Cody, who would have suffered the same fate on Raw last week if his father had not stepped in, is now going to try to avenge his family when he challenges Orton in a rematch Monday night. Will Cody Rhodes teach Orton a lesson?
Find out the answers to these questions and more on Raw on Monday night at 9/8 CT on USA Network.
