411’s WWE Raw Report 10.03.05
Hello everyone, it is I Larry Csonka subbing for Derek Martin. Derek is off for his birthday, because his girlfriend is taking him out. So of course here I am jumping into the Raw recap seat. What, this is 3 hours? Shit. Let’s get to work!
At 7:55 or so there is a countdown on USA with a bunch of clips of Raw’s beginnings and Vince, HBK and a bunch of others discussing Raw’s debut. It is a bunch of clips from the special they showed last night. HBK was on the first Raw on USA, and will be on this Raw on USA. That is cool. HAHA, they showed the “choppy, choppy your PEE PEE!” Lots of Rock clips, damn I miss that guy.
WWE Raw 10.03.05 Starts…NOW!
WWE, the power is back…
Dance to the music…
We get a ton of fireworks, and a semi-new set, with the multiple little screens surrounding the larger TRON!
FOLEY IS OUT! Looks like it is Piper’s Pit Time.
“Mrs. Foley’s little boy has come home! Home to the WEE, USA and home right here in Dallas Texas!” CHEAP POP!
He announces Roddy Piper, and calls him a true legend.
Piper cuts the music and gets a great ovation. He tells Foley that he is a fan of his. He thought he was the craziest, but he has nothing on Foley. Foley jumps off roofs for fun. Off of cages for fun. He lands on thumbtacks, Piper says he is nuts and has nothing on Foley. Then he read his new book, and Foley is seriously sick. Piper says they come here for the truth, and when is Foley coming back to the WWE?
Foley says (with loud chants) he came back last year, was better than ever but still got his ass kicked, and if he were to come back he would need a really good reason.
Piper says there are 12,000 good reasons right here and leads the crowd in chants.
Orton is here with Cowboy Bob in a neck brace!
Foley has them cut the music. Foley says it is never good to see him, but these are not normal circumstances. He tells him to not be concerned with his legend, but to be concerned with the Undertaker’s legend that will take him out this weekend.
Orton says he is Randy Orton, and he can do and get away with what ever he wants. He heads to the ring. It is all good Mick, I am not here to say anything to you, I want to talk to Roddy Piper.
Piper says he looks great, and Orton says he will DROP HIM! If it wasn’t for Cowboy Bob, there would be NO PIPER! His dad got pain and suffering and Piper got all the glory, and it makes him sick. His father is classy, and he was raised the right way…and pushed Piper.
They brawl and Foley pulls them apart. Cowboy Bob nails Foley! RKO on Piper! RKO on Foley!
Ross says that was disrespectful. He says the Iron Man Match is next, and we see highlights of HBK vs. Angle from WM XXI and then Vengeance.
We are back as we see highlights of what happened on Piper’s Pit.
Bishoff and Teddy Long talk in the back. Eric yells at Teddy for having the Orton’s show up. Teddy says to drop the bass, because he had nothing to do with it. Eric says it BEST not happen again, or he will give them a RAW moment to remember, got that playa?
We see all of the legends at ringside.

Vince says it is homecoming! Back on USA! Back where things are uncensored, where all hell can break loose at anytime. Uncensored for sure. He remembers one day, Feb. 8th 1998. That was the night that he beat the holy hell out of Stone Cold Steve Austin. He says we all remember it like he does. Austin is scheduled later, and Vince’s favorite Raw moment is that day. We see Vince pinning Austin as he puts over his physique. That was one of his favorite moments. He has another. The time he had him arrested.
When you hear the glass, what your ass Vince…AUSTIN IS HERE!
Vince acts happy to see him, I don’t believe that for some reason. Austin asks is he was having fun at Austin’s expense. He doesn’t believe him. Vince says they never saw eye to eye, and Austin agrees. He says not to be uptight, nervous or rattled. After all Vince did make him right? Oh, the “what” chants are back. Austin asks if all he said was true, and Vince says he was having fun. Austin laughs…and says it WASN’T funny. He remembers things a bit different and has his OWN highlights. We see Austin attacking Vince in the hospital. BED PAN ATTACK! ENNEMA! Austin says we showed the world how sick and twisted Vince was then. Vince said he was embarrassed. Austin says Vince is making him sick. We see the time Austin kidnapped Vince and rolled him to the ring with the fake gun and made Vince piss his pants. He also makes fun of his gray hair. Austin asks if he will piss his pants again? Vince says he lost control that evening. Austin has one more to show. BEER TRUCK ATTACK! Austin says he could have competed in the swimming Olympics, and that Vince is pathetic. Vince wants to start all over again here on USA. Vince would never embarrass Austin.

Ina shocking turn of events, Austin is drinking some beer!
HERE COMES THE MONEEEEEEEEEEEY! SHANE O MAC IS HERE! HOLY SHIT!
Shane hits the ring. STUNNER for Shane! Welcome back Shane.
STEPH IS HERE! She looks “breast a licious.” She asks Austin who he thinks he is? This is USA, their show! Austin couldn’t hear her. She says this is OUR show, this is Raw and this is USA. He understands. She says she is Stephanie McMahon! Austin wants to ask her a few questions. What fragrance are you wearing? She grabs his arm…bad move. Austin says she is flirting with him. He gets it, hey, I am out here STUNNIN people and maybe she wants to kiss him. She slaps him. Ok, he thinks she is playing hard to get. He wishes she hadn’t doen that…but then again…I’m glad you did…STUNNER!
Is Linda next? YES SHE IS! The old school WM music hits! She says what do you think you are doing? Look at this habit. This carnage in the ring is her family. She has spent 2 years bringing the family back together. Austin says Vince is trash. Linda agrees. But her son, what about him? Trash as well. Ok, she agrees. What about Steph? He has to say that poor Steph is a precious piece of trash. Austin says they were causing a disturbance where he got his start. He is here to raise hell, what did she expect? She thinks she owes the McMahon family an apology. He just did his job, and she want an apology? Ok, **checks his watch** ok, you’re a classy lady, I apologize. She thanks him. Austin says while you are out here, I want to leave these people a moment to remember, with them all alone in the ring. He wants a kiss son the cheek. He wants to leave his eyes open, cause she knocks his lights out. He changes his mind. He wants to give them something to remember. “Whaddya sat sweetheart? Vince is taking a nap? Let’s cut to the chase and DRINK SOME BEER!” He gives her a beer and they drink. Austin loves any drink thrown his way. He tells her to keep drinking, cause he has plenty. Beer #2 for Linda. He spills some beer on her and raises her hand. He forget to say thanks…STUNNER to Linda!
**Insert about 136 “WHAT” chants into that segment as well.**
We are back as Vince is helped to his Limo. Todd Grisham catches up with him and Vince says someone will pay and get fired over this.
