    Monday Night Raw
    Date: April 21, 2008
    Location: BI-LO Center, Greenville, South Carolina
    Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler

    This is another request and since it’s taking forever to download some TNA shows, I figured I might as well knock some of these off in the meantime. This is the King of the Ring tournament so it’s a three hour special. Almost everything you have here is a tournament match, plus an eight man tag and a REALLY stupid other match. Let’s get to it.

    I really like Regal around this time. It's a shame that his pushes never seemed to materialize completely.

    Regal violated the wellness policy KB. It had nothing to do with entertainment or anything like that. Regal would've had a massive heel push into a WWE Championship picture. It was fairly obvious that, especially after Orton got injured, they were in dire need of a major heel for the summer and as I signed up at about that time, I recall there were reports that he was in line to face HHH for the WWE title at Night of Champions if I'm not mistaken.

    I've heard it many times and I still don't buy that it was ever going to happen.

    I don't think they'd ever go through with it.

    I think at the end of the day they would have stopped short of putting him in a major title feud because it would have bombed in PPV buys.

    That they were going to go through with what? he was the entire show after KOR. They were doing a lot of weird shit at the time, I mean with pushes etc, because the new talent initaive was grossly stale.

    and yea, like ol boy said. He violated the welness policy, and that was that. Had nothing to do with anything else.

    If it was his first Wellness policy violation, I think they'd have been able to keep his push going (30 days off and come right back as king), but it was his second. A third violation would have eliminated him from the company, so they didn't want to bank on him (which I can't blame them on).

    And I bet they would have put him in a PPV Title match. It may not have ended the show, but he would have had one.
