After being subjected two weeks in a row to the sadistic whims of others, next week itâ<80><99>s time for The Game to make the rules. And what Triple H has in mind spells nothing but hurt for his WrestleMania XXIV opponents, Randy Orton and John Cena.
Two weeks ago, Raw General Manager William Regal announced a Triple Threat Takeover, allowing each of the three men involved in the WWE Championship Triple Threat Match to arrange their opponentsâ<80><99> bouts for one week. That night, on John Cenaâ<80><99>s command, Triple H was forced to battle reigning WWE Champion Randy Orton. Last week, The Cerebral Assassin was pushed into a match with his WrestleMania XV opponent, Kane, compliments of Orton.
This week, however, Triple H has arranged a match pitting Cena & Orton against the entire Raw roster. (No, really. Itâ<80><99>s true!)
What the hell does this mean? Having suffered through two weeks of his opponentsâ<80><99> will, can The Game capture the momentum in the weeks leading up to the greatest stage in all of sports-entertainment?
In other action, Chris Jericho returns to Raw as the new Intercontinental titleholder after defeating former champion Jeff Hardy. The lion-hearted warrior has been salivating to recapture a title heâ<80><99>s held seven times prior. Now that heâ<80><99>s back on top, how will Y2J handle the list of contenders gunning for him?
The bad blood continues to flow between Big Show and his WrestleMania foe Floyd â<80><9c>Moneyâ<80> Mayweather. The animosity between the two flooded the arena last week when The Worldâ<80><99>s Largest Athlete grabbed the WBC welterweight champion after their weigh-in, lifted him overhead and tossed him over the top rope causing Mayweather to injure his elbow. Will Mayweather be able to continue with their match? If so, how will The Greatest Fighter in the World retaliate?
