WWE: Monday Night RAW Recap
RAW is live from the Gund Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.
Just 6 days away from SummerSlam:
Tonight we will see the signing for the Til Death Do Us Part match, Eugene and Benoit will go one on one with Randy Orton and HHH and much more.
The Coach is in the ring ready to announce the eliminated Diva this week when the music of Randy Orton hits. Randy hits the ring in s suit as the divas look on with high hopes that they will not be eliminated. Randy says he wants to do the honors. He grabs the envelope and says that the loser is Chandra. Chandra, the twin, is kissing people goodbye as Randy is talking trash saying she is leaving the ring as a loser. Just like Chris Benoit will leave the ring a loser this Sunday! Randy says that these people do not realize it but they are witnessing history because this is the last time he will be in the ring without a championship belt around his waist. We see footage of last Monday where Orton pinned Benoit with the RKO. Randy asks the crowd what they did when they were 24. Did they pay off their student loans? Move out of their parent's basement? Buy a new car? Well Randy Orton will become the youngest WWE champion EVER.
With that said, Chris Benoit hits the ramp shaking his head at Randy Orton. Benoit says since Orton likes to show footage why don't they show footage of Randy Orton tapping out. Orton says there is no such footage because it never happened! Benoit then slaps the Crossface on Orton who taps within a minute! Benoit lets go and says now we have footage of me making you tap out!

After the match:
Trish hits the ring and talks to the divas in secret as we cannot hear her. All the Diva's seem interested in what she has to say as they all follow her to the back. What did Trish say?
Eugene and Regal together again:
Eugene and William Regal are together in their hotel room where they are talking. Eugene says he does not want to be in the hotel because he wants to go to the arena and beat up Evolution. Regal says they have to stay calm because if they go to the arena they will get ambushed. William asks Eugene to stay calm and stay put until he comes back. Regal leaves and Eugene paces around angry... he then sneaks out!
It's a Baby KANE!
Lita is sitting in the back when Matt shows up. He asks her why she is here because they have to sign a contract for the Summerslam match ver shortly. Lita looks upset and she asks Matt if he meant what he said when he said he would marry her regardless of who the father of the baby is. He asks why she is asking this and Lita tells Matt that his DNA was not a match with the baby and that the baby is in fact Kane's! Matt freaks out and throws chairs everywhere and storms off without saying a word.
Contract signing for Til Death Do Us Part match:
All 3 participants hit the ring and JR goes over the rules which basically says the winner can marry Lita and the loser cannot stop it. Kane can also not touch Lita or Matt if Matt wins. Lita signs, Kane signs with a huge smile on his face and then JR turns to Matt who is about to sign. He goes to sit but does not, he goes to sign but does not. Matt walks around the ring a second and then goes back to sign the contract. Matt signs and throws the pen away. Kane asks for the mic and he says "Now Matt, everyone knows the truth, HAHAH, it looks like I'm more man than you'll EVER BE.. HHAHAHAHA." Matt looks at a laughing Kane and then he flips the table on top of Kane. Matt picks up the steel suitcase that held the contract and he knocks Kane across the face with it. Matt stands over Kane saying "You will be mine!" Kane sits up eventually as Matt leaves.
The Divas have 25 seconds to sell you ice cream. Wow.. boring!

Eugene hits the ring and says HHH, you hurt my friend, come out here noW! He carries on telling HHH to come out. HHH gets on the screen and says Eugene should not be mad at HHH but he should be mad at himself because HHH tried to tell him he did not belong. HHH says he sent a message through Regal and asks if Eugene gets the message or if he is just stupid. HHH says that he did not listen to Regal earlier either because Regal told him to stay at the hotel but Eugene went to the arena asking for HHH and HHH is here.... at Eugene's hotel room! HHH says that what happened here at the hotel is also Eugene's fault. The camera looks down a bloody and gagged Regal who is bleeding all over the place.

Two minute tag challenge Referee: Mike Chioda Tajiri and Rhyno vs. Albright and Cage

Divas in Bikinis
I think Carmella has the best chance of winning as she seems to be getting the best pop night in and night out.
As the Divas are still strutting their stuff, Trish hits the ring with the divas from earlier in the night after having a conference with the girls. Trish tells them that she is sorry to interupt but she just got a green light from Eric to have something do down at SummerSlam! She says that the real 7 Divas will face the 7 Diva hopefuls in a good old fashioned Diva dodgeball match! Someone hits one of the chicks with a dodgeball and then Jazz slam dunks the dodge ball between her legs.

Todd Grisham was shown with Randy Orton and Todd spoke about what just happened and he said that Lita has got to be upset. Randy said upset? Why would anyone be upset? Tonight is a night for celebration. Summer Slam 2004 is going to go down in history because one of the most talented, charismatic and best looking WWE Superstars is going to ascend to greatness tonight. Tonight will be... John Cena was seen standing by and he said that tonight will be the night that the Franchise opens shop on Booker T's ass.
