Raw: McMahons collide

Sibling rivalry exploded Monday night as Shane and Stephanie McMahon collided on Raw. As the two fought each other to announce matches for night, Stephanie told Shane, “This is my show… You can run the corporation, I’ll run the show.” To which Shane replied, “Is what your really saying … you’re going to sleep with another WWE Superstar and get yourself another husband?” Stephanie promptly slapped him.

“You want to run Raw,” Shane said. “I’m going to watch you run it right into the ground.”

Truthfully, unless we see more of the Stephanie we saw last week, I really don’t think Stephanie could run the show into the ground even if she tried. Stephanie really does bring something to the shows, whether she is a valet, wrestler or general manager. Shane is exciting to see in the ring, but I really think his sister is a better all-around performer.

Mr. Kennedy returned to promo his movie (Behind Enemy Lines: Colombia), but was not in action. Melina, however, did compete in her return to Raw.
