-Kane/'Cane vs. Jericho/Christian for the Tag Titles. -Bischoff tribute to the Intercontinental Title since it's going bye-bye on Sunday. -Trish/Jacquelyn vs. Molly/Victoria -Booker T vs. Big Show falls-count-anywhere -Jeff Hardy vs. Rico -Tommy Dreamer vs. Chris Nowinski -Lance Storm vs. Al Snow
Something must be missing, though. Where's HHH, RVD, and the Dudleys? I assume they'll be booked for matches during the show but otherwise, it's hard to pick the main event from that list. The Tag Team Title match would be the best choice, IMHO.
Kane/Hurricane vs. Jericho/Christian(tag title) -I think the FREAKS will most likely retain the belts, for now. I do see them losing the belts before the PPV, as Kane would look too strong against HGH, with both the IC and Tag belts on him, and NOBODY is allowed to look strong against "the man who is banging daddy's little girl" WINNERS: KANE/HURRICANE
IC Title Tribute: I think this will be done tasteful (the video part), then of course get slammed and dissed by Easy-E, to get him MORE heat. (Even though it WILL even out the belts on the two shows, I hate to see it go. I was really looking forward to someone *coughcoughRVDcough* to hold on to it for a LONG time.)
Trish/Jackie vs. Molly/Victoria -Ugh. Sound like a good time to a. Take a leak b. Grab a cold one c. Check out the score on MNF d. do ANYTHING else Seriously, I can't stand seeing Jackie wrestle; she's going to give herself a concussion with those breasts. And the wholesome angle of Thunderthigh Molly's has long since run it's course. The Trish/Victoria angle is a total waste of time, and no one seems to care about it... WINNERS: NOBODY WATCHING IT
Booker T vs. Big Slow(falls count anywhere) -Unfortunately, it seems like they want to stick with this feud(?), as opposed to Jericho/Booker.Booker should come on top in this one, as he can maneuver around more, and the Big Show won't have much room in the crowd to use his slowest. offense. ever... Of course, Jericho SHOULD interfere, hopefully. If he does, PLEASE let him MISS and kill the Big Slow(OMYGAWD, Jericho's a MURDERER, too?!!) WINNER: BOOKER T
Jeff Hardy vs. Rico -This looks to be a rainbow flag-waving, bone-smugglers DREAM match, as the two most uh, flaming? competitors go at it(NO, not THAT way). Expect to see this start a long feud, culminating in a Greased-vibrator-on-a-pole S&M match. WINNER: JEFF HARDY, and the GLAAD group
Tommy Dreamer vs. Chris Nowinski -this should be a short, yet sloppy match, as neither guy has much to offer. Even though the Hardcore Division is dead, this will have plenty of garbage wrestling involved(duh). I feel Nowinski will get this one, continuing yet another feud we don't care about... WINNER: CHRIS NOWINSKI
Lance Storm vs. Al Snow -Since the UnAmericans are pretty much through, and are in the doghouse of Vince's, Al Snow will go over. Face it, Tough Enough III is starting soon, can't have the head trainer jobbing right away, no? WINNER: AL SNOW
I can only hope RAW goes better than how I feel it will, but with the current trends, I seriously doubt it. Hopefully, something else BIG will happen, as the last time there was supposed to be a "big meeting" with the talent, Eric Bischoff suprised us by showing up on RAW...

Did you mean for this to sound as homophobic as it comes across?
I wonder how they'll further on the Murdering Kane angle, especially with the PPV this weekend. Hopefully there will be a surprise or something that would make it worthwhile to purchase the PPV.
Originally posted by DJ FrostyFreezeMeanwhile, I thought Harvard Chris was gonna be out for like 6 weeks getting his jaw worked on or something. What happened to that?
Yeah, he's not supposed to be back til November sometime, and the last Ross Report said that Tommy Dreamer was supposed to be taking 2-3 weeks to rest his back. All I can think is that they may have pre-taped something -- I believe the "Nowinski Takes Dreamer to School" segment was taped before Chris had his surgery, & shown just after -- so that Chris wouldn't be off our TVs for too long while he was having a decent run. We'll see.
Main eventers are never/hardly listed on the previews. But I am expecting an overrun of Triple H babbling about Kane is a murderer.
I see Jericho/Christian winning the tag titles
The women match could be interesting. They still have that big dark Trish secret hanging overhead. I would like to see Molly lose and get bitched out by Victoria starting the Molly face turn... I think Trish/Victoria has been done well (so far) and is one of the good things about Raw. But then again that's just my opinion I wouldn't be self-important enough to say EVERYONE will like it, but I do.
If Nowinski is back already, I'd be a happy viewer. The guy is a total guilty pleasure
If they were the ONLY network showing this show, I would concede the point....but I'm not ready to do that yet. Via Wikipedia and cross-checked against wwe.com/worldwide, a quick list of countries shown as currently airing NXT AND Superstars:
