WWE RAW’S 800TH EPISODE CELEBRATION, Friday 7 November, 8.30pm

ONLY on the BOX, SKY Digital Channel 5

Rev your engines, as the WWE® Superstars are about to go head-to-head at The Great American Bash. Don’t miss Triple H®, John Cena®, Shawn Michaels®, Chris Jericho®, Batista™, CM Punk™ and all your favourites fight it out LIVE on Monday, July 21st at 12pm exclusive to SKY Box Office Events.

Ever since Edge™ lost The World Heavyweight Championship to CM Punk on RAW®, the Rated-R Superstar™ has been fuming. Now he has his chance to win the WWE Championship by facing up to the King of Kings™ – Triple H. Will Edge’s determination to capture The WWE Championship be enough to conquer the King of Kings or will Triple H prove he’s still worthy of holding the gold?

Batista has already made his intentions clear: he plans to let nothing stand in the way of recapturing his former title – The World Heavyweight Championship. But despite prevailing over John Cena, JBL® and Kane® in a Fatal Four Way Match to earn his place, will his distinct size and strength advantage be enough to prevail over the reigning World Heavyweight Champion – CM Punk – who has speed and agility on his side?

And finally, will The Great American Bash see the end to the trouble that has been brewing between Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho? For months, they’ve circled each other like junkyard dogs and so far their rivalry has cost Michaels the use of his right eye and the Y2J™ Star his Intercontinental Championship. How much more will these men lose when they put it all on the line at The Great American Bash? As they’ve both told one another, “The worst is yet to come.”

Don’t miss a second of the action at The Great American Bash, Monday, July 21st at 12pm live and exclusive on SKY Box Office Events.
