STAMFORD, Conn., June 24, 2008 – One of the most dramatic scenes in the history of Monday Night RAW took place live last night on USA Network’s ratings winner. After legitimately giving away $1 million dollars for the 3rd week in a row, an “accident” occurred burying Mr. McMahon® in over a ton of rubble.

Last week, Monday Night RAW ratings defeated all other television programming on broadcast and cable in the coveted male 18-49 demographic. Last night’s shocking twist will no doubt add even more intrigue to the most watched regularly scheduled show on cable.
