Cue the Raw intro. Cue the pyros. Cue thousands of screaming fans. All this can only mean one thing – another edition of Monday Night Raw!

**Candice Michelle’s music hits**

The following is a women’s battle royal, and it is a #1 contender’s match. Introducing first, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin – Candice Michelle.

And making her way to the ring from Boise, Idaho – Torrie Wilson. Oh. My. God. She looks amazing.

**Be Yourself is all that you can do….**

The 2005 Diva search winner – Ashley.

**Maria’s music hits**

From Chicago, Illinois – Maria.

**I ain’t the lady to mess with…..**

And making her way to the ring – Victoria.

**Mickie James music hits**

And from Richmond, Virginia – Mickie James.

**Trish’s music hits**

And it looks like Trish Stratus will be taking this match in as well.

Match 1: Women’s Battle Royal

All the ladies attack one another as soon as the bell rings. Tilt-a-whirl into a sideslam by Victoria to Mickie James, I think. Victoria looking to throw Ashley out, but she hangs on to the apron. Maria comes for the assist and almost knocks Victoria out as well. Mickie James throwing some big right hands to Mickie James, but Maria turns it around. Candice with a kick to the ribs of Maria. Maria pounding away on Candice, but Victoria makes the save and clotheslines her. Torrie is almost out courtesy of Ashley, but Candice Michelle makes the save. Torrie thanks her and Candice pushes Torrie off the apron. Victoria wonders what the hell is going on and shoves down Candice. Mickie James almost had her tit ripped out by Ashley while Victoria strangles Maria in the corner. Ashley and Maria team up to throw Victoria out. Spinning back kick by James to Ashley. Bronco buster for Candice from Maria – that lasted a long ass time. Mickie grabs Maria and throws her through the middle rope. I guess she’s out. Mickie James going crazy on Ashley. Mickie gives the thumbs up to Trish. Ashley reverses a whip into the turnbuckle, but she gets a back elbow from Mickie. Mickie with a head scissors on Ashley – Mickie is trying to eliminate Ashley, but Candice comes out of nowhere and eliminates them both.

WINNER: Candice Michelle (4:01)

Candice on the mic: Check it out Trish. You want to know why I’m too hot for Raw. It’s not because of my Super Bowl commercials, and it’s not because of my appearance on the Tonight Show. And it’s not because I’m going to be on the cover of Playboy magazine, but it’s because when I beat you I’m going to be the new W-W-E Women’s Champion.

**You think you know me…**

Edge and Lita make their way to the ring. Lita walks up to Candice and grabs the microphone.

Edge: You wanna talk about being champion. Well, I should be champion! So get the hell out of my ring, toots – RIGHT NOW! Voice like that is like nails on a chalkboard. Hit the road, toots.

Candice leaves the ring.

Edge: Now to the issue at hand. You see last week I had John Cena beat. And the only reason I’m not standing here as champion is because of one man! (Triple H?) And that one man’s name is Mick Foley. (Oh I see) So, Mick – I hope you’re sitting at home nice and comfy on your couch. I hope you’re watching real close because I’m going to give you a personal lesson of what happens when you mess with the Rated R Superstar. You see for the past few weeks I’ve had a bunch of nobodies come up to me with your best Hacksaw Jim Duggan impersonation (HOOOOOO) – yeah, just like that calling my girlfriend a ho (HOOOOO). Tonight I take care of that because I challenged Hacksaw Jim Duggan to a match, and he accepted.

Lita on the mic: Hey – so Hacksaw. (HOOOOOO) Very funny. Hacksaw, you get your wall-eyed goofy butt down here because you’re going to find out what happens when you mess with my man – the Rated R Superstar.


And there he is – “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan.

Looks like this match is up next!

Edge: Foley, did you see that? Did you see what I did to Duggan? And he didn’t do anything like you did to me. You cost me my dream of walking into Wrestlemania as the champion – you son of a bitch! So, I’m gonna make it real simple because I know you’ve only got one ear. Mick Foley versus Edge at Wrestlemania. And Mick – I’m gonna give you one week to accept my challenge in this ring and if you don’t come here I’m gonna come to Long Island, drag your sorry carcass into your backyard, and beat your ass right in front of your entire family.

Don’t forget about the Road to Wrestlemania Tournament Finals later on tonight. Big Show is starting off into the abyss backstage.

Big Show: The first time you lace up a pair of wrestling boots. You step into the ring; you’ve got one goal. That goal is to be the WWE champion. Then there’s this opportunity for you to be in the main event of Wrestlemania. I’ve been in the main event before at Wrestlemania 2000. Some people say I may have taken that for granted. But tonight I’m focused on what is in front of me. What is in front of me tonight is RVD and Triple H. Now, if I chokeslam RVD and Triple H I will go on to the main event at Wrestlemania. And if I chokeslam RVD and Triple H I also stop Triple H from going to the main event at Wrestlemania. I don’t know which is sweeter.
