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 WWE.com 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 week’s special episode of Raw to fire Adamle or Orton himself is going to “walk.” Orton then questioned Adamle’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 Orton’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 show’s 800 episodes.

Venue: St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, FL

How come the 800th celebration comes a week after episode 805?

Oh, and Miz/Morrison are getting buried.

I think all hope that DX might give someone other than HHH or HBK exposure was shattered when 'the game' said that nobody else was allowed in his exclusive little club.

It's the celebration of the fact that they have reached 800 episodes.I suppose they already had a 3 hour slot booked and so had to come come up with the theme,Mr Mcmahon appreciation night e.t.c

Yeah you would think so,after all the Are you fifty and the stuff they did on The Dirt sheet.I suppose there will be a promo before it though where Triple H drops insider terms and comedy gems.

It would be funny if Triple H and Michaels just played an internet fantasy and just had Miz and Morrison squash them in about a minute and a half.

The same press release that announced DX Vs. Miz & Morrison (which seemed obvious after Morrison mocked Triple H with that movie trailer on The Dirt Sheet and their comments on RAW) also announced a Steel Cage Match for the World Heavyweight Title, but I plan to wait until after Cyber Sunday to post that one.

Also, Vince has a knack for having these celebrations either too late or too early. Just like RAW's 15'th Anniversary Celebration that was a few months ahead of time.

I imagine it'll have something do with when they can have three hours of airtime on the network.

I may be misinformed, but it seems like USA needs the WWE a lot more than the WWE needs USA. Sure, USA seems to have a decent relationship with the WWE, but it seems like WWE would have the upper hand and be able to choose when they want to have their 3-hour specials, but it seems Vince isn't taking any chances. Saturday Night's Main Event is proof of that.

Also, I've heard rumors that Vince is returning on this RAW.

If WWE had the upper hand, they'd veto the entire 3-hour show as they hate doing them. USA are the ones who want them, and WWE are in no position to say no because if they annoy USA, they're pretty much screwed.

Words can't describe how much I want Miz and Morrison to win. If I can't get to cleep, I'd love to get up and watch it, but I'd be in so much trouble if I got caught [most likely], so I'll probably record it and watch it in the morning.

I think this is Jimmy after hearing that news: :explode:

I think I could just mark out if they do!

I really wonder what MVP has done to get burried like this, when was the last time he actually won a match?

It was a good opening match with a promo from Randy at the very top of the show
