Preview: Rage in a Cage
By Greg Adkins
September 24, 2007
Carlito hovered around the ring, waiting for his chance to strike. He watched as Triple H took on World Tag Team Champions Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch in a Handicap Match. When he spotted his opportunity, the Caribbean Bad Apple attacked from behind in an attempt to avenge his loss to The Game at Unforgiven. Carlito is still convinced he can beat the Cerebral Assassin anytime, and next Monday, he’ll have a chance to prove it in a Cage Match.
There will be nowhere to run or hide for the Caribbean Bad Apple. How will Carlito handle the onslaught of The King of Kings? Find out next Monday night when Raw heads north to Milwaukee.
After last Monday, John Cena’s rage has reached new levels. And who can blame him after acting General Manager Jonathan Coachman arranged a match between Randy Orton and Cena’s father? Handcuffed to the ring ropes, the WWE Champion watched helplessly as Orton administered a devastating RKO to the elder Cena before The Champ was able to break free. How will events play out next Monday night as the hatred between Cena and Orton reaches the boiling point on the way to their Last Man Standing Match at No Mercy on Oct. 7?
Speaking of hard feelings, how will Mr. McMahon’s manifest themselves this week? The Chairman continues to build walls between himself and his son, Hornswoggle. Can the leprechaun break through to his father, or will Mr. McMahon continue to freeze him out? (
Also, Beth Phoenix showed last week that she’s primed for another opportunity at the Women’s Championship. After Candice won her tag team match with Mickie James, the Glamazon entered the ring carrying the Women’s Championship belt. She draped the gold over Candice’s shoulder and shoved the Candy-coated Diva, a clear warning that she means business. After coming so close to capturing the gold at Unforgiven, just how far is Phoenix willing to go for another opportunity at the title?
For answers to these questions and more, tune in to Raw Monday night on USA Network at 9/8 CT.
