TONIGHT: Stone Cold Steve Austin teams up with Mankind to battle the Rock and the Undertaker. What will happen when these four superstars COLLIDE?

TIME TO GET RAW! Your hosts are Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler. In case you didn’t know, Jim Ross suffered his second Bell’s Palsy attack last night at Capital Carnage (and finished the show!). Michael Cole is your number one PBP man until Ross is able to return to call the WrestleMania XV main event. Not being a “live” broadcast, you’ll catch Jim Ross still sitting at the announce table whenever he appears within the eye of a camera even though the commentary would be completed in Stamford, CT. Essentially, there’s no cutting to Michael Cole or Jerry Lawler during this episode of RAW. Read the rest of this entry

We get a great video package highlighting the last month of issues between Steve Austin and Mr. McMahon. Austin ain’t through with ya, Vince. Not by a long shot.

Earlier tonight on RAW, Mr. McMahon drives himself to the building in his beautiful white Corvette. I would be just kidding you if I knew what year model. Anyways, the security guard takes his sweet time opening the garage door. Once he drives past the door, Vince gives him the riot act. Commissioner Slaughter, Pat Patterson, and Gerald Brisco are there to meet Vince and help him out of the car. McMahon vents about the “idiot” at the garage door. He wants the guy to keep the door open for when Steve Austin arrives. Oh boy. Trouble is a-brewing. Vince has a nice Titan Wheelchair, by the way.
