Raw is War

Tucson, Arizona
August 25, 2003


The uncontrollable Kane set out to burn another body once again on RAW. His victim -- Shane McMahon. Only this time, Kane's plan went array, and it was the monster on the receiving end of a vicious burning.

After Shane's no-contest match with Chris Jericho, Kane and Shane battled outside of the arena. With Shane down, Kane dumped several gas cans into a nearby dumpster. He then set the dumpster ablaze. Luckily for Shane, he was able to muster up enough strength to kick the Big Red Monster into the flames. As he did so, Shane told Kane to "burn in hell!"

The match between Shane and Chris Jericho was set up by Shane's father, Vince. In a bit of a family reunion, Linda, Vince and Shane all ended up on Chris Jericho's Highlight Reel. Clearly, Linda and Shane were none to pleased with Vince's actions of late. In fact, Shane showed so much disrespect towards his father, that Y2J took it upon himself to beat some respect into Shane. Vince demanded that the beating stop, only to proclaim that the two would do battle later that evening.

In the same segment, Linda made it clear that Eric Bischoff is a liar, and that nothing happened between her and Eric last week. It was revealed, however, that Bischoff's arrival at the McMahon house was the handy work of Vince McMahon. Apparently, Vince invited Eric over.

Hot off the heels of their mega-encounter at SummerSlam, Triple H and Goldberg announced that they would face each other one on one for the World Heavyweight Championship at Unforgiven. Only this time, if Goldberg cannot defeat Triple H for the title, he must retire from wrestling altogether.

Elsewhere on RAW, Eric Bischoff awarded Jonathan Coachman with the Employee of the Month Award, thanks to his contributions in Bischoff's match at SummerSlam.
