WWE RAW Preview – End Of The Year, End Of The Line?; Confirmed Matches

The following is from WWE.com:

End of the year, end of the line?
December 31, 2007

Just before the ball drops in Times Square to ring in 2008, Raw Superstars will ring the bell for a thrilling night of action in Greensboro, N.C.

As ordered by Mr. McMahon, “Nature Boy” Ric Flair’s legendary career will be on the line once again – this time against his friend, protégé and former Evolution teammate, Triple H.

With 27 World Championships and a mentor-student bond shared between The Game and “Naitch,” will the dirtiest player in the game be able to survive the King of Kings’ onslaught? And what will The Cerebral Assassin do? Is the 11-time World Champion willing to battle his mentor and end the career of a man who has been such a great influence in his life?

One shining light – the Greensboro Coliseum is traditionally “Flair Country,” giving the Nature Boy a hometown advantage. And in past weeks, with Flair’s career on the line against Randy Orton and Umaga, he’s been resourceful enough to come out victorious. But will Nature Boy’s winning streak run dry in his home state, ending his legendary, championship-filled career?

Also, WWE.com has found out from sources that John Bradshaw Layfield’s first in-arena Raw appearance will be as big and unforgettable as his home state of Texas. After the Lonestar Loudmouth attacked Chris Jericho in Iraq during Tribute to the Troops, will Y2J be out for revenge on the business tycoon as he makes his promised Raw debut?

In other Raw action, Mr. Kennedy’s obsession with Shawn Michaels continues to rage on. The Green Bay, Wisc. native challenged HBK to a match Monday, vowing that he will beat Michaels before the end of 2007. Can Kennedy really make good on his resolution?

Also, the New Year’s Eve show marks the beginning of qualifying matches for the Royal Rumble. Who will survive to battle inside New York’s Madison Square Garden on Jan. 27?

Find out live on New Year’s Eve, as Monday Night Raw airs 9/8 CT on USA Network.
