MANKIND BECOMES REGAINS THE WWF TITLE WITH THE AID OF A FORKLIFT: We start tonight’s program with highlights from the “Empty Arena” match between the Rock and Mankind.

SHANE McMAHON is in charge again tonight because his father Vince McMahon is away on special assignment in Victoria, Texas to provoke and confront Stone Cold Steve Austin. Last time Shane was in charge, that worked out real well. He is backstage talking to the BIG BOSS MAN, KEN SHAMROCK, and TEST. Shane knows that the Rock is on his way, but wants to know where Kane is at. Nobody wants to travel with that big red retard (Shane’s words, not mine!), so nobody knows where he’s at. Shane taps on Chyna’s dressing room door alerting her it’s time to go to the ring when Boss Man bumps into TERRI and JACQUELINE. He points his finger in Terri’s face and calls her a “bitch”. Whoa! Now hit that RAW intro.

TIME TO GET RAW! Your hosts are Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler. Read the rest of this entry

LAST WEEK ON RAW: WWF Commissioner Shawn Michaels was publicly fired by Vince McMahon for still having a little “DX” in him to end the program. Not one to lay down for anybody, HBK gives Vince SWEET CHIN MUSIC and babyfaces himself in one single moment. They show Vince eating shoe leather from about seven different angles in a matter of five seconds. Hilarious. Apparently at some point this week, Vince told whomever will listen on WWF.com that he’s going to “dismember” Shawn Michaels. We’ll hear from Shawn Michaels from his home in San Antonio via satellite later tonight.

LAST WEEK: Shane McMahon had complete control of RAW and put himself in a match with Mankind. Naturally, he gets his butt whooped with no problem. He even tasted Mr. Socko! When it looked like DX was in total control over the Corporation, Vince McMahon returns to the show with his Christmas bonus: it’s the return of KANE! Surely he’s here to help the good guys, but no. He runs through DX and gives them all chokeslams. Last night on HeAT, we are told that Vince McMahon has saved Kane from an awful mental institution and must do everything Vince tells him to do – because he’s Vince’s FREAK.
