Start of the Show:

A small ceremony is given at the beginning of the show for the United states armed forces. Vince McMahon himself talks about how because of their sacrafices, we as a people can live freely and we should never take for granted our freedoms as a country.

Jim Ross welcomes us live as Jerry is in the ring. He says today officially starts the first day of summer and what better way to start the summer than to have a Diva swimsuit competition! He welcomes Christy Hemme who comes out to a huge pop. He then brings out Candice Michelle who gets no reaction at all. Maria is next to the ring and she is all smiles as the crowd cheers her on a bit. Victoria is next and she gets a decent reaction from the crowd. Jerry Lawler then says that competing in her first swimsuit competition is Lilian Garcia! Lilian comes down to the ring to a decent pop as the King starts to get excited. He says the rules are very simple. The King says he gets to pick the winner after all the girls strut their stuff. King says Lilian has been with the company for six years and King has been waiting six years to say this “drop that towel!” Lilian goes to drop the towel but the music of Viscera hits and he makes his way to the ring as the King comments and says he should check out all these beauties. King says he can help him judge the competition. Viscera says there’s nothing in the world he’d rather do, but that’s not why he is out here. He said he was in the back watching and the thought of her made him all hot. What he wants, he gets and he’s got to have it! He picks Lilian up in his arms and he takes her away!

King says they have one less contestant but that is no reason to stop the show. Victoria is first, wearing black, the crowd barely pops as it looks like she could kick MY ass. Maria is wearing spotted leopard stuff. King comments, etc. You know the drill. Candice looks good. Christy gets the biggest pop, if there really was one. She ropes the King with her towel. King says he needs to catch his breath for a moment and says he needs one more look, he goes behind them and looks at their ass. He then picks Christy Hemme as the crowd chants for Stacy. Victoria gets off the apron looking upset as the other girls celebrate. Victoria comes back in the ring and snaps! She kicks Christy in the gut, kicks Candice through the ropes and then kicks Maria right in the side of the head. She kicks Christy in the boob and then pounces on her to slap and punch the crap out of her. King asks her what she is going and she kicks him square in the nuts. Victoria then drops Christy with the Widow’s Peak as she leaves the ring.

Victoria Speaks:

Todd asks her about the whole incident and she says she is sick of it and sick of her! She gets the Diva Search, Playboy, and WrestleMania 21! It should have been her and she hates Christy!

The Highlight Reel:

Chris Jericho makes his way to the ring to host tonight’s edition of the Highlight Reel. Jericho says he almost didn’t make it on time again today because of an autograph signing, the line was out the door! He says he feels bad for the kids who didn’t get one, but the parents should get there earlier because he is a hot commodity.

He said that next week is the very first night of the month long draft, and because he is the Highlight of the Night, he is going to interview the very first pick coming from Smackdown to RAW. He said he will make history by interviewing them next week on the Reel. This week, he has two very special guests. One is a monster, some would say this person has no soul or remorse, but he’ll get to Lita in a second. He then introduces Kane to the arena.

Jericho said he isn’t taking any satisfaction in what happened to him, but how did it feel to find out that Lita was cheating on him with Edge? Jericho said he doesn’t know how Kane would feel, but how did this happen? Kane didn’t respond. Jericho asked if Lita gave any indication that this would happen? Is this a case of your equipment malfunctioning? Have you been suffering from some premature pyro? Kane still didn’t respond. Jericho said he’ll buy Kane a box of kleenex and a box of Haage-Daaz and he can go home and have a really good cry! Kane stared at Jericho, and he told him to calm down. Edge appeared on the Tron, and said that he doesn’t seem to be answering Jericho’s questions. He asked how it felt to be speared by him, and how it feels to know he was spearing his wife for two months?

Edge said he doesn’t feel bad for what he did. When Lita was calling her sister, she was really calling him. He said Lita needed a real man, Kane should be happy for them. Edge said Lita will not be going out there tonight, but she will talk from here. Lita came onto the screen and said that she has an announcement. She said she has officially filed for divorce, and she will no longer have to deal with his sweaty body, and his stupid laugh. Lita said he was like a fourth grader in the bedroom, and she won’t have to deal with that. She then took off her ring, and went into a toilet cubicle. She pretended to be upset and then laughed and tossed it down the toilet and flushed it away. Lita and Edge then made out and Kane did not look happy at all. Kane stood in the ring a dejected man as we went to commercial.

When we come back from commercial break Eric Bischoff comes to the ramp and says last week he claimed a crucade on ECW and when the pay per view happens he will put an end to it once and for all. He says he is glad he is not alone because Kurt Angle is gathering his own troops to put an end to ECW. Bischoff says if he hates ECW so much why would he approve a table match tonight on Raw? He says it is because he can prove that Raw can out ECW ECW any night of the week. Benoit wants to be a part of it? Well let Eric introduce us to one of his general’s in the war against ECW; Edge!

HHH speaks:

HHH speaks live from WWE studios. Jim Ross tells him that he lost to Batista and in the gold rush tournament. HHH tells him to shut up because he only wants to speak to Batista. He asks if Batista thought he was just going to go away? This is his world, his theatre, and HHH is just letting him have his part and now, Batista is a victim. He said he beat him and made him taste his own blood. When you beat an animal it either becomes more violent, or it becomes submissive. He says last week Batista looked scared. That was the first step. The final step is hell in a cell. HHH talks up how brutal a hell in a cell match is. He tells Batista to ask around, ask Kevin Nash, ask Mick Foley. He says people will tell Batista that this match will shorten his career and life, and it will most the most brutal experience. They are right. They will say to fear the cell. HHH says not to fear the cell, but to fear him. HHH says he has gone to hell and back, and he liked it. Batista is going to go face to face with devil himself. They will go to hell but only one of them will come back and it will be him with the world heavyweight championship…

MasterLock Challenge:

Masters says he has $10,000, American, because Canadian money isn’t worth jack these days. He says not one person he has pulled from the crowd has put up a fight. He opens the challenge to the locker room instead! Who’s it going to be? For 10 grand? The music of Val Venis hits and he comes out towel and all. Masters says that he is a huge fan of Venis and his roomate in college has all of his movies and that is why it will be such an honor to make him pass out to the master lock. Val gets on the mic and says that he asked someone to step up and as the ladies know he always gives very “stiff” competition. Venis takes his seat and Masters kicks him in the back of the head. Masters then knees him in the face a few times. He then slaps on the master lock but Venis almost gets out! Venis uses the ropes to launch himself but Masters holds on to the lock! He turns Val over and puts Val out. Another “big” win for Chris Masters.

Christian speaks..

Christian gets on the mic at the top of the apron as his peeps go wild. He says that this is a response a superstar like him should get. He talks about the draft lottery next week but the fans chant his name before he could. He said he’s looked over the Smackdown roster and it seems to him that they are missing something. They;ve got Americans (boo) Mexicans (boo) Japanese (boo) they’ve got a giant (boo) a st-st-st-utterer (boo) a rapping hip hop poser champion (boo). Christian said Cena couldn;t get him to quit even if he forced him to listen to the crappy CD he made! What they do not have is a Canadian! (cheers) A Canadian that will kick the holy living hell out of anyone on Smackdown. Next week he will either stay here or go to Smackdown where they will get the three C’s.
