Official WWE RAW Preview For Next Week – Edge vs. Batista

“Mr. Money in the Bank” will get his first chance to cash in and win the World Heavyweight Championship on Monday, as the new official No. 1 Contender gets his stipulated opportunity.

Edge earned more money in the bank by beating Kane in the finals of the Gold Rush Tournament, but it took a shocking betrayal from Kane’s wife Lita to get the win. Now, Batista will have to try to focus on a competitor hell-bent on winning the World Heavyweight Championship while keeping an eye on his cunning companion Lita. Batista must also look out for Edge’s prized briefcase, which has now been used to knock off – literally – the likes of Shawn Michaels and the Big Red Monster.

It will be the first time Edge and Batista will be opponents since the Elimination Chamber Match at New Year’s Revolution, where they each had four other combatants to face simultaneously in the frenzied environment. This week on RAW will be a very different scene; Batista and Edge will be able to prepare solely for each other and craft a strategy designed to leave Green Bay, Wisc., victorious.

Also expected, more details of Lita’s treachery.

All this and much more on Monday Night RAW at 9/8 CT only on Spike TV.
