Welcome to Pulse Wrestling’s LIVE WWE RAW Report. You got me, Paul Marshall, in the driver’s seat for all three hours tonight as RAW celebrates their fifteenth anniversary! I’m under the weather, but nothing can stop me from providing a great report…unless the weather stops me. Let’s GET IT ON!
January 11, 1993 began a new era for the WWF. The remix of all the RAW themes is being played, which I find very interesting. Explosions all around the arena and weâ€™re live from the Arena at Harbor Yard!
We kick off RAW with the McMahon Family. Vince welcomes everyone to MONDAY NIGHT RAW! He brags about how RAW is the best show on television. Linda canâ€™t be here tonight because she was throwing up to the sounds of Vinceâ€™s ego, HAHA! He asks for the photographer to come to the ring and Hornswoggle comes out. Hornswoggle chants by the crowd. Mr. McMahon says that his kids want him to die and rot in Hell so they can inherit the fortune. However, the point is moot as he says that he loves everyone. They get ready for the picture, but they are interrupted.
Itâ€™s the King of Kings, Triple H! Vince wonders what he is here for. Triple H waits for his â€œpopâ€ to die off. He calls the people smart. Triple H brings out some of the people that Vince had supposedly â€œlovedâ€. Out comes Melina, to which Vince says that he didnâ€™t have sex with her. He now brings out Sunny, whoâ€™s looking pretty good tonight. Hornswoggle gets him some sunshine, but this goes down hill with the introduction of Mae Young. Well, Mae gave Vince a crotch buster some time ago, so I guess that counts as one of his supposed â€œrelationsâ€. It was at Moolahâ€™s funeral and Vince was drunk. Shane leaves the ring wanting to throw up. Vince was thinking about Linda during the time. Triple H says that the list goes on. There was one, that Vince thought was a woman, but truly wasnâ€™t. Out comes Howard Finkel and a whole bunch of fat oily men, along with Patterson, Brisco, and Abe â€œKnuckleballâ€ Swartz.
Stephanie says that Vince has too many problems. Too many that she decides to liplock Hunter! Hunter says that he will see her at home. Vince says that he hates everyone and he hopes that everyone goes straight to Hell! Vince leaves the ring and Hornswoggle is down. Triple H says that he hopes that someone could make this al better. Out comes the â€œHo Trainâ€! Hornyâ€™s gonna get him some tonight!
Up next, Jeff Hardy versus Carlito for the Intercontinental Championship!
We are back! Later tonight, we will know who is the greatest RAW Superstar of all time. But, it is time for our LADDER MATCH!

Twist of Fate try is countered to a clothesline! Carlito is on the offense as he sandwiches the ladder in front of Hardy. Hardy throws the ladder at Carlito. Carlito gets a warm introduction to the ladder, but Hardy gets caught. Both men take turns brutalizing the other with the ladder. Carlito is on the apronâ€¦DROPKICK! Carlito lands HARD on the ladder! Hardy has another ladder and he sets it up. He climbs the ladder but Carlito SPRINGBOARDS on the ladder! Carlito does the SUPER SUNSET DROP and we get â€œHOLY ****â€ Chants! We take a breakâ€¦

Hardy is back up and he clubs Carlitoâ€™s back. Carlito nails a chop block to Hardyâ€™s left leg. Carlito sets Hardy up on a ladder at the corner. Carlito looks for a splash, but Hardy scouts him and he back drops him ON THE LADDER! Hardy is on top and he nails the SWANTON BOMB! Hardy is on one leg and up the ladder. Carlito tips the ladder over, but Hardy lands on his feet. Hardy looks for the twist of fate, but Carlito COUNTERS to a Backcracker ON THE LADDER! Carlito sets the ladder and he climbs it. Hardy is on the ladder too and it is a fight on top! Hardy knocks Carlito off the ladder and he unhooks the title!

It is time for the Evolution Reunion. Surprisingly, they donâ€™t come out as an unit. Ric Flair, Triple H and Batista are inside the ring. Randy Orton comes out with a microphone. He doesnâ€™t want to join them in the ring because they want to ride the coattails of his success. We get a flashback to August 16th, 2004, where Randy Orton was kicked out of Evolution. Triple H remembers that because it was very cool. They bicker as Randy Orton brings out his Rated RKO tag team partner, Edge.
