Event: WWE Monday Night RAW Results Airdate: Monday, May 22nd, 2006 Location: The Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, NV Results by 411Wrestling.com
The show opens with a highlight package of last week's main event when Triple H bashed special guest referee Shane McMahon with sledgy, and told Vince he was sorry and it was an accident.
Vince McMahon stares through the screen.
Vince McMahon: Good evening. Last week my son Shane was accidentally battered with a sledgehammer. The only thing that saved him from permanent damage was his superior conditioning and superior genetics. Noentheless, Shane has suffered a mild concussion. While I'm certain this incident was an accident tonight I will demand an apology from Triple H. Anything other than a meaningful, sincere apology will be dealt with with swift, vengeful retaliation.
Cue Raw intro, cue pyros, cue thousands of screaming fans - all this can only mean one thing...it's MONDAY NIGHT RAW!
Good ole JR and King welcome us to Las Vegas, Nevada for another live edition of Raw. Shawn Michaels will take on all five members of the Spirit Squad. John Cena will also face off with Chris Masters.
There is a red carpet covering the entire ring and a podium.
**Mick Foley's music hits**
Foley makes his way to the ring in a suit.
Mick on the mic: Thank you for your continued support. You know how much I appreciate especially in lieu of the terrible misunderstanding that has taken place the last few weeks. I just wnat to set the record straight. You see - I am not a bad guy. It's ok to cheer me. Parents tell the kids boos aren't really necessary. (BOOS) I'm the lovable guy. Look at this adorable gap-toothed smile. I'm the human muppet. The guy who puts his thumb in the air and says it's great to be right here in Las Vegas. Except it's not really that great to be right here in Las Vegas (boos). Hear me out - it's just that I have a problem with millions of people showing up in a city hopiong to change their lives with a roll of the dice or a spin of the wheel. I think you would agree it's more admirable to earn your accomplishments like I did. Come on now - I didn't become three time champion by rolling a seven. I didn't become a two-time New York Time #1 best selling author by putting a quarter in a slingo machine. I earned it! I earned every single thing I accomplished in my illustrious career. As did my guest tonight - who earned his undefeated streak at Wrestlemania. Who earned the right to be called the most viewed champion of the last five years. Ladies and gentlemen - say hello the Rated R Superstar - he is Edge!
**You think you know me....**
Foley: Edge - wait first....on behalf of all my WWE fans in regard to Lita - let me say for all of us...holy crap. I know you're wondering what all this is about - the red carpet, expensive suit. It's because that I am simply not going to apologize for having the greatest hardcore match in wrestling history at WM. We did that. I don't care what people think. I don't care about Tommy Dreamer or Terry Funk's opinion. The truth is - you embody everything that hardcore is all about. Not that slime that oozed out of ECW. Which is why I am presenting you with this...
