~ Raw comes on the air with highlights of the Steve Austin/Spike/Molly saga on Smackdown, with minimal involvement from Austin’s King of the Ring challengers. Jim Ross and Paul Heyman welcome us and remind us that we’re just six days away from King of the Ring, and as such the four quarterinal matches for the KOTR tournament will all take place tonight. Also tonight The Dudley Boyz will challenge Chris Benoit & Chris Jericho for the Tag Team Championships. Yet we see a graphic showing a six-man tag with Benoit, Jericho and Spike against the Dudleys and Steve Austin? And on top of that the graphic is quickly pulled, as if we weren’t supposed to see that. Whoopsies? Read more…
