Monday Night Raw
Date: June 2, 2003
Location: San Diego Sports Arena, San Diego, California
Commentators: Michael Cole, Jim Ross

We’re less than two weeks away from Bad Blood and things are looking more and more dismal every single week. Things just aren’t interesting around here and there’s no reason to suggest that’s going to change. The big story continues to be Kevin Nash vs. HHH for the World Title and that’s what we’re stuck with no matter what. Let’s get to it.

This almost has to be better. After last night’s rather lackluster Raw, we’re continuing the build towards Survivor Series. This week we have a pair of Survivor Series qualifying matches as Shinsuke Nakamura faces Kevin Owens and Bobby Roode meets Dolph Ziggler in a 2/3 falls match. Let’s get to it.

What the World Was Watching: WWF Superstars – June 17, 1995

Vince McMahon and Dok Hendrix are doing the commentary for today’s show and they are doing the second round of tapings in Wheeling, West Virginia.

The big video board shows footage of Lawler walking barefoot in his horse’s stall.  The only redeeming thing about seeing this footage yet again is McMahon’s great facial expressions.

We’re closing out the month with…a lie detector test! Yeah that’s the big draw this week: Mr. America is being forced to take a lie detector test after losing to Sean O’Haire last week. Somehow this was probably viewed as a big win for O’Haire, even though he’s already coming off as little more than a detail less than a week later. Let’s get to it.

What the World Was Watching: Monday Night RAW – June 12, 1995

Vince McMahon hypes tonight’s Lex Luger-Yokozuna main event, recapping their old feud that began nearly two years ago.  He ignores their WrestleMania X bout but the best part about the package is that it gives the company an excuse to bring back the “I’ll Be Your Hero” song.  Yokozuna’s manager Jim Cornette and Luger cut quick promos against each other before RAW’s opening song kicks on.

McMahon and Jerry Lawler have the commentary duties and they are still in Struthers, Ohio.  Lawler promises more training footage of how he is preparing for The King of the Ring.

Last week’s big announcement was what might only be the second worst disaster of a HHH pay per view rematch (Kevin Nash should send Scott Steiner a raw meat basket) this year will be held inside the Cell. Other than that, Steve Austin likes to torture Eric Bischoff and Chris Jericho wanted to murder Goldberg for whatever reason. Let’s get to it.

So this show looked one way coming into last night but has now completely changed. This week’s show was focused on the return of Shane McMahon, but last night Shane led most of the roster in an attack on the Monday Night Raw roster. That’s likely to be the focus tonight, and really it’s all they could do. Let’s get to it.

We’re past Judgment Day and that means it’s time to get ready for…well that’s not clear actually as we have Bad Blood as a Raw exclusive pay per view for June. Brock Lesnar is in need of a fresh challenger after vanquishing Big Show, which opens the door for a lot of people who don’t seem ready for the spot. Let’s get to it.

We’re past Judgment Day and thank goodness for that. Unfortunately we’re on the way towards Bad Blood, which is the first single branded pay per view. In other words, we’re all in very serious trouble. Unfortunately we seem to be headed towards another Kevin Nash vs. HHH disaster. Let’s get to it.
