Preview: Liking it Raw for 15 years
December 10, 2007

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – It will be a night of celebration next week as Monday Night Raw celebrates its 15th anniversary with a three-hour spectacular.

A host of WWE legends and alumni have been invited to honor the most groundbreaking show in sports-entertainment: Hulk Hogan, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Mick Foley, Eric Bischoff, Sunny, Trish Stratus and Lita are just a few on the list of invitees.

Many of these Superstars have one thing in common: They all have had heated wars with Mr. McMahon. The Chairman’s daughter, Stephanie McMahon, has warned her father not to show up at the anniversary celebration because she fears his many enemies may be gunning for him. But Mr. McMahon will not be deterred, as he is determined to name the greatest Superstar in Raw’s history. Who will be named Raw’s greatest Superstar? You have to tune in to Raw’s special 15th anniversary celebration to find out.

However, Mr. McMahon will have more than his enemies on his mind. Next week, his entire family, including his illegitimate son, Hornswoggle, will be posing for a family portrait. How will all the members of the McMahon clan react to the little leprechaun in their first public appearance as a complete unit?

Armageddon will be less than one week away during Raw’s 15th anniversary celebration, and the rivalry between Chris Jericho and Randy Orton is heating up as their WWE Championship Match approaches. What will these two do to try to get an advantage before Armageddon?

And what about Triple H and Jeff Hardy? Their match at Armageddon will determine who will challenge for the WWE Championship at Royal Rumble. These two dynamic Superstars have mutual respect for one another, but will that fade as Armageddon approaches? Either way, the challenges won’t stop for the “Rainbow-haired Warrior.” As seen first in an exclusive video on WWE Mobile at AT&T, Carlito will challenge Hardy in a Ladder Match on the 15th Anniversary Celebration of Raw.

Raw’s 15th anniversary celebration will also include some surprise reunions – like the reunion of Evolution. WWE Champion Randy Orton, World Heavyweight Champion Batista, Triple H and Ric Flair have all walked separate paths since their days as a unit. How will they react to their reunion, especially with a egomaniac like Orton involved?

Join us next week as we prepare for Armageddon and celebrate the present and past during Raw’s 15th anniversary party. Find out which legends will appear and which Superstars will make special appearances. Tune in live to USA Network for a three-hour celebration with a special start time of 8/7 CT and look back on 15 years of greatness.
