COLUMBUS, OHIO - Triple H showed Umaga's bloody skull for everyone -- especially Carlito -- to see. In his first match on Raw this year on Monday night, The Game dispelled any doubt that he was truly back when he pulled off a feat no other Superstar had been able to accomplish. He bloodied and appeared to severely injure Umaga with his sledgehammer after the Samoan Bulldozer and Carlito attempted to brutalize him in a Handicap Match.
Triple H was originally scheduled to face Carlito in one-on-one competition after he had humiliated the Caribbean Bad Apple on Raw last week. However, a vindictive Mr. McMahon changed the bout into a Handicap Match. At first, it seemed the Samoan Bulldozer and Carlito would overwhelm the 10-time World Champion, but he evened the odds with his trusty sledgehammer. The King of Kings proved not only that he's out for blood, but that any opponent who thinks otherwise does so at their own peril. Beware Carlito.
Umaga's humiliation punctuated a bad night for him on Raw. Earlier, he had lost the Intercontinental Championship to Jeff Hardy. Story...
