Ric Flair and Triple H make their way to the ring decked out in suits and ties. Flair starts the interview claiming that last week he was wrong when he said Triple H was the greatest wrestler alive. That's because Triple H is not just the best wrestler alive, but the best wrestler ever. Flair then mentions the fact that Eric Bischoff is not allowing Randy Orton in the building tonight and as far as he is concerned he is lucky because he is safe from an ass-whooping like he received last week. "The Nature Boy" then speaks on how Randy Orton is a virgin in legend killing and Flair then goes into details on how many virgins he has made scream, sweat, and bleed through-out the years. Next Flair mentions that he and Randy Orton will be going one on one at Taboo Tuesday and the fans will be deciding which type of match they will be having.
Triple H then gets on the mic and mocked the fans in a fashion very similar to last week. He reiterated his thoughts on Taboo Tuesday and even made a comment about The Rock stating that he is "Overrated".
Triple H was cut off by the music of Chris Jericho who made his way from the backstage area. He said that the fans shouldn't worry, as Raw is not a re-run, obviously speaking of Evolution being in the ring again complaining about Taboo Tuesday. He then gives the fans in attendance a verbal poll. He asked if they thought Triple H was the greatest wrestling today? The greatest wrestler of all-time? Or the biggest horse's ass of all time. Obviously the first two got boos as a response and the third a huge chorus of cheers.
Flair and Evolution were pissed almost daring Jericho to enter the ring. However, Jericho walked away. Seconds later he returned with a chair. He made his way down the entrance ramp but was attacked by Batista from behind. Batista tossed Jericho in the ring, and Evolution started their beating. Second later however, Chris Benoit emerged from the backstage area to make the save, but the numbers got the best of him. As Evolution went to work on Benoit and Jericho a third man emerged from backstage. That man? Edge. Eventually, Edge, Jericho, and Benoit cleared the ring. Evolution seemed very angry as they made their way up the ramp.Shawn Michaels vs. Christian (W/Tyson Tomko)
The match opens up with Christian getting in the face of "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels. However, it didn't last long as HBK slapped the taste out of Christian's mouth and started things off. Shawn Michaels took control of the match early on connecting with right, lefts, and boots to the gut. Shawn Michaels kept control with a hiptoss, but was eventually taken down hard by his hair by Christian. Christian kept control of the match until he was sent into the corner by HBK. Shawn Michaels then attempted the Sweet Chin Music, but Tyson Tomko pulled Christian out of the way. Moments later, Christian was sent to the outside of the ring. As things started getting heated outside, Tyson Tomko was hit with the Sweet Chin Music.
As Raw came back to the air Jim Ross made it clear that Tyson Tomko was no longer at the ringside area due to the Superkick delivered by Shawn Michaels earlier. They also showed footage of Shawn Michaels going after Christian on the outside, but ended up tasting the steel of the guard rail on the outside. As Christian and HBK laid outside the ring the referee started the mandetory ten count. At nine, both men were on their feet and re-entered the ring. Michaels quickly gained a second-wind and blasted Christian with punches in the corner. However, out of nowhere Christian turned the tides and connected with a Un-Prettier. It seemed that Christian waited a little too long to go for the cover, and HBK kicked out at two. As the two got to their feet again, Christian went to the top, but was taken down back body drop style all the way to the mat. Next, HBK connected with a nice elbow drop followed by the SWEET CHIN MUSIC for the win.Winner: Shawn Michaels
- As Raw went back on air, Jim Ross announced that tonight there would be two huge matches. Chris Benoit would go one on one with Batista, and Triple H would be taking on Chris Jericho.
- Next a segment that was taped earlier in the day was broadcasted. The segment featured Lita being interviewed by Todd Grisham involving the current situation pertaining to her pregnancy and the fact that she lost her baby last week. Lita says she didn't regret the fact that she was pregnant and that the whole thing between Matt and Kane was a mistake, however, she wouldn't change it. She then stated that despite not having love for Kane she hoped that he destroyed Snitsky tonight. She said that "Snitsky is a DEAD MAN".
- Cameras then cut to Eric Bischoff, who is in his office in a meeting with someone who is obviously female due to her polished red fingernails. Bischoff was in the process of making some type of deal with this person when Coach stormed in and was caught off guard by the very site of this women, whoever it may have been. Bischoff and Coach step aside and Coach makes his feeling known about interviewing Snitsky tonight. He says that he don't want to be caught between Kane and Snitsky and Bischoff understood and said Jim Ross would do it instead.
-COMMERCIAL BREAK-In-Ring Segment: Jim Ross Interviews Gene Snitsky
Jim Ross stands in the ring as Raw comes back on the air. J.R. announced Gene Snitsky's name and he makes his way to the ring pushing a baby carriage. As Jim Ross went to start the interview Snitsky quickly inturrupted claiming "IT WASN'T MY FAULT!" as he had already done so many times in the past.
Just as Gene Snitsky finishes his statement, Kane's music hit and he made his way towards the ring quickly. As Kane entered the ring, Snitsky grabbed a lead pipe from the stroller that he entered the ring with a blasted Kane with it several times. Kane was bleeding, and bleeding badly. As Kane finally started to realize where he was, Snitsky was already headed towards the backstage area.
- A recap of what happened moments ago with Kane and Snitsky was show as Raw came back to the airwaves. Chris Benoit vs. Batista
Chris Benoit entered the ring followed by Batista. Benoit started things off quickly taking Batista off his feet. Benoit dropped a few elbows on the legs of Batista obviously focusing on one part of Batista's body early on. Benoit kept the offense, but not for long. Batista turned the momentum with a variation of a spinebuster, and then seconds later a backbreaker. After a failed pin attempt, Benoit was back on his feet. After taking Batista down again, Benoit kept the focus on Batista's legs attempting a sharpshooter. However, Batista kicked him away. Next, after both men were on their feet again, Benoit connected with rolling german suplexes. As Batista lie on the mat below, Benoit signaled as if he was ready to finish Batista off and then connected with another German suplex. Flair then went to get involved, but came up short. However, he would get his revenge as moments later Benoit was sent to the outside of the ring where Chris Benoit was sent into the ring post thanks to the "Nature Boy". Ric Flair and Batista continued to work over Benoit.
Seconds later out of nowhere Randy Orton hit the ring and destroyed Batista and Flair. They were quick to exit the ring, however, Bischoff emerged from the backstage area. Bischoff had security with him and they "helped" Randy Orton out of the arena. Winner: No Contest
-COMMERCIAL BREAK-In Ring Segment: Eugene has a Girlfriend?
Eric Bischoff was still in the ring as Raw came back from commercial. Bischoff said that Orton had been escorted out of the arena, and wouldn't be seen again tonight.

Not only that, but the fans would choose the weapon that would be made legal in that match-up.
Next, Bischoff says that Chris Jericho's opponent at Taboo Tuesday will be whoever the fans vote out of the entire list of superstars not already involved in a match-up.
Last but not least, Bischoff said that he was there to talk about the match-up between he and his nephew at Taboo Tuesday. He asked Eugene to come to the ringside area. As Eugene entered the ring Bischoff said that as awkward as it sounded, someone backstage had a crush on Eugene. That women? None other than Carmella, the runner up in the Diva search competition. Carmella entered the ring, and stated that Eugene would look good bald. Obviously, this was a stunt to get Eugene to get the fans to make the match a hair vs. hair match and let Bischoff beat him to impress Carmella. However, Eugene said that would happen only if she'd kiss him tonight. Carmella then dropped the "act" and said there is no way she is going through with that. Bischoff said it's alright, and that Carmella would be facing Christy at Taboo Tuesday and that he was still going to BEAT Eugene.
Raw Diva Search Winner Christy then made her way to the ring, and took Carmella down with a slap before kissing Eugene, and then making out with him. The two left the ring together as Bischoff and Carmella stood stunned in the ring.
