Raw: Bring out the "celebrities"
By DALE PLUMMER - SLAM! Wrestling


There are plenty of celebrities in the audience tonight, as Monday Night Raw comes to us from Los Angeles. Although, calling them "A-list" is like calling tonight's show "live".

(It was taped Sunday night, despite what the TV listing says.)

Lillian Garcia starts to announce the first match, when DX interrupts. It isn't DX, though. Instead "Triple" Edge and Randy "The Showstopper" Orton walk to the ring. DX gets a taste of its own medicine as the duo rip on DX's merchandising. Edge tells the crowd he and Orton will kill the legend of DX.

Hunter and Shawn have heard enough, and head to the ring. Hunter doesn't think Edge and Orton are jokes. In fact, Triple H mentions the rating of Edge's live sex show, even if little Edge didn't show up. Hunter goes on to say that Orton is the most downloaded superstar, among the gay community. Orton tells Hunter he wants him. Triple H acts as if Orton is coming on to him. Orton says Triple H is jealous, and wants to know if Trips has the guts to face him in the ring. Tripe H accepts. DX is about to tell Orton and Edge to suck it when Orton gets a punch in. The heels then slip out of the ring.

(Speaking of the live sex show; I was there that night in Hershey when Lita had her wardrobe malfunction. I was embarrassed, and then angry. Why angry? Because WWE won't be coming back to Hershey for quite some time.)

Aaron and Nick Carter are in the front row. I wouldn't call them A-list, B-minus, tops.

Match # 1 Spirit Squad (Johnny and Mikey) vs. Cryme Tyme (JTG and Big Shad)

(I've really turned around on these guys. I just hope JTG wrestles in his bulletproof vest, ala D-Lo Brown. Never mind; he took it off.)

Johnny knocks down JTG, but he recovers and responds with a standing drop kick. Big Shad tags in and locks in an arm bar. JTG tags in, and leapfrogs Shad to come down on Mikey's arm. Johnny tags in, and hits a dual suplex on JTG with Mikey. The boys go for another double team, but JTG reverse the suplex into a double neck breaker. Big Shad gets the hot tag and cleans house. Shad lays a big boot into Mikey's face. Shad ducks a dual clothesline, and hits a double one of his own. JTG pushes one of the cheerleaders off the top turnbuckle into his teammates. Cryme Tyme then double-team Mikey hitting a Samoan Drop neck breaker combo. Shad makes the pin and steals the win.

Winner by pinfall: Cryme Tyme

During the break Kenny get into a shoving match with his teammates, before storming off to the back.

Todd Grisham is backstage with Nitro and Melina, and he wants to know what celebrity they will bring out tonight. Melina won't tell.

King Booker and Queen Sharmell are with Jonathan Coachman. Coach says Vince wanted them here. Cryme Tyme walks in and hits the catering table. They show King Booker some love, after which Booker can't find his wallet.

Match #2 Jeff Hardy vs. Super Crazy vs. Chris Masters vs. Shelton Benjamin Fatal Four-way Intercontinental Title Match

Masters goes after Hardy, while Shelton fights Super Crazy. A head scissors from Crazy sends Benji to the outside. Hardy kicks Masters in the corner, as Super Crazy and Benji fight on the outside. Masters slams Hardy into the turnbuckle, and follows with a suplex. Super Crazy catches Hardy's leg in the corner, and tosses him over the top rope to the floor. Benji jumps Crazy on the top turnbuckle, but both men are power bombed by Masters. After the break, Masters blocks a suplex by Hardy, and counters with one of his own. Masters misses a charge in the corner, and Hardy goes for a twist of fate. Masters pushes Hardy right into a super kick from Benjamin. Super Crazy sends Shelton to the outside with a missile drop kick. Masters gets the Masterlock on Super Crazy, but Benjamin breaks the hold with springboard neck breaker off the top rope. Super Crazy knocks Benjamin into the corner with Masters, and Hardy hits a flying leg lariat. Hardy dropkicks Benji off the apron, and then drops Super Crazy onto him. Hardy nails the twist of fate on Masters, and then a swanton bomb. Hardy covers Masters for the win.

Winner via pinfall: Jeff Hardy

King Booker tries to tell the police who robbed him. Booker tries, but says they all look alike. Big Show walks in and says he will be the champion of champions. Coach informs both men that Vince has arrived. Vince asks where Cena is, and tells Coach to go find him.

Nitro and Melina hit the ring, and bring out their A-list celeb. Nitro says this man is an actor and a rapper. It's Kevin Federline. K-Fed tells the crowd to stop booing Melina and Nitro. Melina wants Kevin to rap from his new album. K-fed says the crowd can wait till the album's release. Cena's music hits and the champ is here! Cena raps about K-Fed and spearing Britney. Nitro steps up for his buddy, but Cena kicks him out the ring.

Big Show and King Booker head to the ring to stand with Cena, as Vince McMahon makes his announcement. Vince tells the crowd that at Cyber Sunday they will decide which title will be up for grabs during the Champion of Champions match. Big Show and Booker walk off, leaving Cena in the ring. The champ invites K-Fed back in the ring. Cena asks Federline whom he will vote for. K-Fed says he votes for Cena, because he wants to see Cena get his butt kicked. Cena drops the mike, and extends his hand. K-Fed tries to shake hands, but instead gets F-U'ed by the champ!

Match #3 Carlito vs. Rob Conway

Carlito makes short work of Conway. After a springboard back elbow, Carlito hits his back cracker and gets the pin.

Winner via pinfall: Carlito

Carlito then spits apple all over Conway's face.

Edge runs into Vince and has some ideas for the boss. McMahon says Edge and Orton will face DX. Edge wants a special referee named, like Coach, or Eric Bischoff, or even Mr. McMahon himself. Vince likes the idea.

Todd Grisham invites two of his favorite stars to the ring. It's Steve-O and Chris Pontius (C-list, at best) from Jackass 2. Armando Alejandro Estrada interrupts, and asks if they will do anything. Steve-O says he will do anything, so Estrada brings Umaga to the ring. Steve-O back flips off Pontius, but right into a spine buster. Umaga picks up Pontius, showing him you don't come on to RAW playing that stuff, beating his butt with a Samoan drop. Umaga goes to leave, but Steve-O is laughing on the mat. Umaga shows Steve-O he can't come in the ring talking that noise. Umaga splashes the jack-ass off the top turnbuckle.

Three 6 Mafia is in the house. They won an Oscar, so I'll give them A-list status.

Match #4 Maria vs. Torrie Wilson vs. Victoria vs. Candice Michelle All or Nothing Second Chance Bra and Panties match Women's Title Tournament

While Candice celebrates pulling off Victoria's bottoms; Maria pulls the pants off a shirtless Torrie to get the win.

Winner via strip: Maria

Match #5 Triple H w/ Shawn Michaels vs. Randy Orton w/ Edge

Orton gets the jump on Triple H, but Hunter recovers, fighting back with clotheslines. Triple H sidesteps a charging Orton, and tosses him over the top rope. After the break, Hunter hits a suplex. Lita makes her way to the ring. The distraction allows Orton to throw Hunter over the top rope. Edge then hits him with a DDT. Orton rolls Hunter back in the ring, and hits him with a neck breaker. Orton beats Trips in the corner. Orton and Hunter exchange punches, until Trips gains the upper hand. A high knee sends Orton to the floor. A thumb to the eye slows The Game down. Edge jumps on the apron to break up a Pedigree, and the distraction allows Orton to hit an inverted back breaker. Triple H blocks an RKO, and counters with a spine buster. Lita leaps to the apron, distracting the ref. Edge hits Hunter with a low blow. The ref gets involved with HBK, allowing Lita to slip in a chair to Orton. The ref chases off Lita, allowing HBK to slip in and nail Orton with a low blow. HHH grabs the chair, and tattoos Orton in the forehead. Hunter tosses the chair, and covers Orton for the win.

Winner via pinfall: Triple H
