RAW Report 10/13/08 Anaheim, California

RAW this week starts with Y2J out back with Adamle. Y2J is mad because he was in charge last week. He’s also mad that there’s a special guest ref for CS. Adamle tells Y2J that he’s in charge and Y2J has to deal with that. Tonight Y2J wrestles and Batista is picking his opponent. Also, Batista is wrestling and Y2J is picking his opponent. Y2J says he’s going over Adamle’s head and call Shane and Steph. Adamle laughs and says they shut off their phones during the show. Y2J says he’ll get their attention and walks off. He walks by Candy, Mickie and Jamie Noble. The girls are both texting and Y2J comments on it.
Y2J enters the ring and addresses Shane and Steph. He talks about the guest ref stipulation for CS. He bitches that all of them are biased against him and exactly how each are biased. He says it’s unfair and needs to change. He begs them to overrule Adamle’s stipulations as soon as possible. He’s against the fans picking everything for this match (I seem to remember it was Y2J who – in storyline – came up with the idea for Taboo Tuesday, the predecessor to Cyber Sunday).
HBK comes out to the ring moving rather slowly and limping a bit. HBK says nothing would thrill him more than to go out there and tell him that if he’s voted in as guest ref for CS that he’d put all their differences aside for CS. He’s like to say it’s better if Y2J wins so he can challenge Y2J and beat him for the title. He’d like to be able to say that, but he can’t. If he’s voted in as guest ref he’s going to do everything in his power to make it the worst day of his life. He’s not a politician and will not campaign, but he will do what Obama and McCain would love to do to each other… HBK attacks Y2J. HBK takes Y2J down and beats on him until Y2J can get away. Y2J gets out of the ring holding his nose or mouth.
HBK’s music plays but then stops when Y2J grabs a mic and says Batista will be facing HBK tonight.

JBL’s music and he comes out part way in his limo. The driver parks too close to the fans and JBL berates him over it. Nancy O’Dell (access Hollywood) is in the front row. JBL gets huge heat. He says everywhere he goes the subject is about the economy. People ask him if banks are going to fold, what about my 401K and will I lose my home? Well, this bail out is guaranteeing that JBL is keeping all his money. Congress knows the poor will always be there but the rich need to be taken care of. JBL calls himself a ‘real American’ and Hogan’s music starts. Of course it’s not Hogan, but we know who it is! Haas Hogan! He looks so goofy because of his size, but he’s doing a great job moving like Hogan and showing off for the fans.

They didn’t bring their midget so they want to see WWE’s midgets.

A video about Cena with HHH, Edge, Batista, JBL, Jeff Hardy, JR, Mickie, Maria all talk about him in a positive way.

Orton comes out to the stage with mic in hand. He says he finds it kind of funny that no one had any kind words to say about him when he got hurt. He broke his collar bone and finished his match against HHH. Guess he’s no Cena, thank God. As far as CS goes, don’t vote for him. He doesn’t need to be put in jeopardy so close to his return. Vote for HBK or Austin or do not vote at all. Than he’ll be back and we won’t have any say over what he does.

Batista is out back heading for the ring.
