Happy Birthday, Raw!

Forget the pointy hats. Leave the trick candles at home. But be sure to bring the noise. Next Monday night, Raw celebrates 800 episodes in impressive fashion with a three-hour special starting at 8/7 CT on USA Network. With all the chaos in the air, it promises to be one heck of a party.

Promising to kick the festivities into overdrive, World Heavyweight Champion Batista tangles with Chris Jericho in a Steel Cage Title Match. Last week, a bitter Jericho laid a heavy chunk of blame at the feet of Raw General Manager Mike Adamle for his losing the title to The Animal the night before at Cyber Sunday, unwilling to accept any responsibility for the defeat.

Will Batista be able to continue his momentum inside the sadistic structure? And just how far is Jericho willing to go to regain the gold?

In other Raw action, cocky up-and-comers The Miz & John Morrison convinced GM Adamle to arrange a tag team match between them and the legendary jesters of D-Generation X, Shawn Michaels & Triple H.

The Dirt Sheet duo has been antagonizing HBK and The Game for weeks now on their video original program. Which of these two tandems will emerge victorious this Monday? And what type of birthday pranks might the WWE Universe expect from these two tag teams?

As for Adamle, his should be an interesting bash. After getting berated by Jericho last Monday night, the GM also took his licks from Randy Orton. The Legend Killer gave Stephanie and Shane McMahon an ultimatum: show up on this weekâ<80><99>s special episode of Raw to fire Adamle or Orton himself is going to â<80><9c>walk.â<80> Orton then questioned Adamleâ<80><99>s ability as a husband and a father. That went too far, and the GM slapped Orton across the face. A livid Orton stifled his rage and stomped out of the ring.

Will Stephanie and Shane McMahon heed Ortonâ<80><99>s ultimatum, or has Adamle gained their confidence?

For the answers to these questions and more, be sure to join the three-hour Monday Night Raw party at 8/7 CT on USA Network to celebrate the showâ<80><99>s 800 episodes.
