The first ever RAW aired on the USA Network in 1993, and
for the first time in five years, RAW was going back home to where
it all started.
Mr. McMahon and RAW General Manager Eric
Bischoff promised a WWE Homecoming for the ages, and thats
exactly what was delivered.
In addition to RAW & greatest talents being on display for
the world to see, Mr. McMahon also allowed Friday Night
SmackDown to have representation on the
big extravaganza. SmackDown General Manager& Theodore Long & set up a huge six-man tag
match pitting World Heavyweight Champion &
Batista, United States Champion Chris Benoit
Rey Mysterio against
Eddie Guerrero, JBL & Christian. Before
the match really got going, however, Bischoff came out and stopped
the match. Since Mr. McMahon had left the show already due some
ill-effects from a Stone Cold Stunner, Bischoff was back in charge
and not only stopped the SmackDown match, but also made his 
WWE Championship match against
John Cena No Disqualification Match.

Bischoff thought he had everything going for him. He had once again
stacked the deck against John Cena and even had Kurt Angle in his
corner for help. Every time Cena looked to have things under
control, Angle would interfere. But when an errant swing of the
chair caused the chair to bounce back into his own face, Angle was
out of commission. With the match being back to a one-on-one
contest, Cena was able to hit the
FU and pin Bischoff to retain the WWE Championship.

Following the match, though, Long came back out and said that since
Bischoff stuck his nose in SmackDown business, he was going
to come back at him “gangsta style.” With that, all of
the SmackDown Superstars on hand stormed the ring and attacked Cena
and Angle. Within moments, the RAW
locker room also emptied out
as the likes of Shelton Benjamin, Viscera,
Big Show and several others evened up the
odds. RAW went off the air with the Superstars of SmackDown and RAW
going at it tooth and nail in a pier six brawl.
Bischoff was able to change his match to a No DQ Match
because Mr. McMahon had already left for the evening. McMahon came
out earlier in the show and relived one of his favorite RAW moments
– pinning Stone Cold Steve Austin. Before McMahon could share
anymore of his fond memories, Stone Cold came out himself and
showed the Dallas fans some memories of his own including pummeling
McMahon in a hospital and dousing him with beer from a beer truck
hose. Mr. McMahon offered to start over on WWE Homecoming with
clean slate, but Stone
Colds answer came with one of his patented Stone Cold
Stunners. Shane McMahon then came out to defend his father, but
without even saying a word, the Texas Rattlesnake greeted him with
a Stunner as well. Then it was the Billion Dollar Princess
turn as Stephanie came out and gave Stone Cold a tongue-lashing.
Stone Cold mistook her words for affection and thought she was
flirting with him – until she slapped him that is. The
vicious slap earned her a Stunner as well, prompting WWE CEO Linda
McMahon to come to the ring. She asked Stone Cold to apologize for
the chaos he had caused, and Austin uncharacteristically did just
that. Austin then said that it was time to give the fans a RAW
moment they’d never forget. After teasing a kiss with the
CEO, Austin said it was time to drink some beers. Just before
Austin was ready to leave, however, he completed the McMahon sweep
and Stunned Linda as well. Stone Cold had wreaked havoc on the
McMahons once again.
WWE Homecoming also marked the return of 
Triple H. The Game had not been in a WWE ring
since Vengeance, but he was back on RAW, teaming with
Intercontinental Champion Ric Flair to take on 
Chris Masters & 
Carlito. Triple H looked like he had never
left, showing no signs of ring-rust whatsoever. After delivering
spinebusters to both Carlito and Masters, he went for his trusty
sledgehammer. Masters was able to wind up with the sledgehammer,
though, and looked primed to give Triple H a taste of his own
medicine. As Triple H had Carlito locked in for the Pedigree,
Masters raised the sledgehammer above his head, ready to break up
the move, but Ric Flair flew in and chop blocked Masters in the
nick of time. Triple H hit the Pedigree for the win.

But the action didn’t stop there. After the match Triple H
and Flair raised each other’s arms in victory, but Triple H
inexplicable leveled his supposed best friend with the
sledgehammer. Triple H then beat a busted-open Flair from pillar to
post. He dragged Flair up the ramp and backstage, pounding on him
every step of the way asking the question, “What were you
thinking?” Only Triple H knows what he meant by that
question. Will we find out next week on RAW?

While WWE Homecoming marked the return of Triple H, it also marked
the last night on RAW for 
Matt Hardy. Hardy faced 
Edge in a Loser Leaves RAW, Money in the
Bank Ladder Match, and Edge proved why he is Mr. Money in the Bank.
Hardy had everything going his way. Edge was knocked out on the
outside, and Hardy was atop the ladder, but Lita came back to haunt
once again. Just as she had done earlier in the match, she caught
Matt as he was scaling the ladder. Matt was grabbing onto the
briefcase, but Lita knocked the ladder out from under him. With
Matt suspended above the ring by just the briefcase, Edge came back
in and tore him down, with Hardy landing on the ropes. Edge then
trapped Hardy in the ring ropes, and Lita wrapped herself around
him, ensuring he could not escape. With Hardy trapped, Edge easily
made it to the top of the ladder and claimed his briefcase for the
win, and Hardy was escorted out of the building and off of RAW for
the last time.

The first match of the evening was an instant classic as Kurt Angle
and 
Shawn Michaels squared off in a 30-minute
WWE Iron Man Match. Angle won their initial encounter at 
WrestleMania 21, but HBK came back to win
at Vengeance, so this was the rubber match. HBK went to the top
rope for a high-risk maneuver and it backfired as Angle leapt up
and hit the Angle Slam for the first fall with 21:40 left to go.
Angle then went to a ground attack to wear HBK down and keep the
clock ticking. Angle hooked in his Ankle lock with about 15 minutes
to go, but Michaels was able to counter it into a rollup for the
second fall, evening the match at one fall apiece. Angle went right
back to the Ankle Lock when he saw an opening, and this time he
grapevined it, forcing the Showstopper to tap out with about 11
minutes left to go. Hobbled on one leg, HBK somehow made a comeback
and hit the top-rope elbow followed by Sweet Chin Music to even the
match at two falls apiece with about 4:45 left. HBK got caught in
the Ankle Lock yet again, and this time there was only 1:40 left to
go. Angle had it grapevined, but Michaels somehow kicked his way
out of it. With Angle’s back turned, HBK hit the Sweet Chin
Music, but the referee could only count to 1 before time expired.
HBK challenged Angle to go into sudden death, but the Olympic Gold
Medalist just left. The score has yet to be settled in this
rivalry.

What would a WWE Homecoming be without the Immortal 
Hulk Hogan? The Hulkster kept it short and
sweet. When asked by Mean 
Gene Okerlund what was next for the WWE
Hall of Famer, Hogan alluded that he would like his next opponent
to be Stone Cold Steve Austin. Was this the Hulkster’s way of
calling out the Texas Rattlesnake for yet another dream match?

WWE Homecoming opened up with Mick Foley as the guest on
Piper’s Pit. The Hot Rod is known for asking the tough
questions, and as usual, he shot it straight with his guest when he
asked Foley point blank when he would be coming back to a WWE ring.
Foley said that he’d need a very good reason to come back,
and with that SmackDown’s 
Randy Orton, accompanied by his 
father WWE Hall of Famer
Cowboy 
Bob Orton, came to the ring. Orton was
Foley’s last opponent but he said his business was with
Piper. Orton claimed that Piper owed all of his success to his
father and while Piper was getting spots on MTV and movie roles,
his father was getting black and blues. Piper and Orton then went
at, and Foley and Cowboy Bob separated the two. But then Cowboy Bob
followed his son’s lead and sucker punched Foley. Randy then
gave both Piper and Foley an RKO, adding Piper to his list of
legends killed.

Speaking of legends, WWE Homecoming brought more legends together
than any other episode in RAW history. Among those in attendance
were 
Dusty Rhodes, 
Sgt. Slaughter, Arn Anderson, Dean Malenko,
Ricky Steamboat,
Ted DiBiase, Steve Keirn, 
Pat Patterson, Tony Garea, Dr. Death Steve
Williams, 
Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Koko B. Ware, 
Greg Valentine, Superstar 
Billy Graham, 
Jimmy Hart, 
Fabulous Moolah, 
Mae Young, 
Harley Race, 
Chief Jay Strongbow, Superfly 
Jimmy Snuka, 
Nikolai Volkoff and Dallas’ own
Kevin Von Erich. When the legends were all gathered in the ring
together, Rob Conway rudely interrupted the festivities, saying
that it was time for a new generation. Harley Race then delivered a
crushing punch, Dusty Rhodes followed it up with the Bionic Elbow
and the Dallas crowd went nuts as Von Erich sent Conway to the mat
with his trademark claw hold. Superfly Jimmy Snuka then scaled the
top rope one more time in his illustrious career and delivered a
Superfly splash, whipping the American Airlines Center into a
frenzy.
