    CHAOS BACKSTAGE AT RAW TODAY LEADS TO CHANGES ON TONIGHT'S SHOW
    by Dave Scherer @ 1:40:00 PM on 7/24/2006

    We just got word from backstage at Raw that Stephanie McMahon has gone into labor. Vince McMahon and Triple H are said to be heading back to Connecticut to be with her, forcing massive changes to tonight's show.



Well, finally. A pregnancy angle actually ends with a baby being born! Is this a first in wrestling? It really does screw up RAW tonight though. They also said Shane isnt at RAW either. So, its just Shawn left. They can't do much with that. I guess DX has the night off.

On the good side, they might actually let Edge have a decent amount of TV time. I mean, he is the champ and all.

What an annoying headline. I clicked that thinking that somoene had a heart attack or a car crashed into the building or something.

But nope, just Steph having a baby. Yeah, I'm sure it threw Raw into "chaos," as clearly this baby came out of nowhere and was totally unexpected.

HHH: VINCE! I JUST HEARD!!
Vince: What? What??
HHH: STEPHANIE WENT INTO LABOR!
Vince: Oh my GOD!!
HHH: Aaaahhh!
Vince: AAAAAAAAAAAHH!!!
Undertaker: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!

Does this mean Triple H will be taking time off TV? I thought I heard he was going to do that when the baby was born.



In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

Quadruple H

Also, it seems kind of silly on WWE's part to make Helmsley the center of the show again if he really is going to want time off. It's not like this birth was unexpected. On the other hand, I guess they wanted to hit the DX iron while it was hot, but hopefully this doesn't cause them too many problems.



I would not be a bit surprised if the individuals on the team from your area were sexually attracted to members of their own gender. That is how ineffective they are on the field of battle.

I take it that by chaos that means they have to re-write the show. Odds are the McMahon's and DX were scheduled for some time tonight. Those segments are scrapped. Maybe they'll give some time to a main event match. We'll see. I wonder if they'll address why the main angle of the show is sidelined for the night.

Good for those kids. Nothing like becoming a parent for the first time.

In the grand scheme of things, professional wrestling is a mere blip on the radar. A husband & wife are about to celebrate the birth of their first child.

Congrats to both.

Exactly. It's not like RAW has never had to survive ONE badly done week before. They'll probably just throw a couple extra matches on and continue next week. The show will be fine and probably won't even be remembered a couple weeks from now (no different than the rest, really...)

Hopefully things go as well as possible for Steph. Congrats to both.

ps. "Quadruple H", that's great.

We (which is to say "I") interrupt this baby thread to bring the knowledge. Because I could just say 'it's hear, hear' but I just learned this all myself:

According to the Random House website:


    The shout is hear, hear.

    The original form of this expression was hear him, which was usually repeated. This imperative was used to call attention to a speaker's words, and naturally developed the sense of a broad expression of favor. This is how it is still used today, although one can always vary one's tone to express different sentiments; the Oxford English Dictionary noted around the turn of the century that hear, hear "is now the regular form of cheering in the House of Commons, and expresses, according to intonation, admiration, acquiescence, indignation, derision, etc."

    As a parliamentary cheer, hear him, hear him! is first recorded in the late seventeenth century and continued into the nineteenth; the reduction to hear! or hear, hear! occurred by the late eighteenth century. However, the use of the verb hear as an imperative meaning 'listen!' is older: a notable example is the parliamentary-sounding "Then cried a wise woman out of the city, Hear, hear" (King James Bible, 2 Samuel xx 16).

Hey now, let's not jump the gun. Didn't Mae Young go into labor too? Until I see a slimy pink sentient being, I'm not buying in!

I have a kooky, silly idea on how the WWE could rebook the show on the fly:

Why not fill the DX / McMahon slots that were scheduled to air on RAW with, y'know, some wrestling matches?

This shouldn't throw them off much, since Triple H and the McMahons were all involved in the same storyline. The Spirit Squad can go about defending the tag titles (which is where they were probably headed anyway). The only one in limbo is HBK, and he probably wouldn't mind the time off anyway. You have plenty of other ongoing issues that will fill the time (Cena/Edge, Flair/Foley, Carlito/Nitro, etc.). I tend to think that "chaos" is an exaggeration, and the fact that Triple H and the McMahons were in the same storyline probably wasn't a coincidence.

To be honest, I'm surprised Vince isn't taking the RAW cameras into the delivery room so they can shoot a DX/McMahon angle while the baby is being born.

I'm hoping that if there's anything the writers won't exploit, be it for a quick ratings boost or mainstream news exposure, it's this.

If anyone out there has a set of drinking game rules, remember that any appearance of Mae Young's plastic hand probably necessitates a full shot.

I suppose if it's a girl, they could name her Leona

Or was that just a cheap joke?
