When the RAW Roster (the most-watched broadcast on pay-per view TV  in the United States) comes to France, one obvious fact is established:  Country Music Planet, the Francophone website on US Culture must be there. Moreover, the show would take place in Paris with RAW presenting a wrestler and a diva at the very last minute for an autograph session following the trend set by SmackDown earlier this year.

As usual, a two-person team left the Rhône-Alpes region in the evening headed towards Paris for a 3:00 AM arrival. I will go over the details concerning our wait, the "as-usual" autograph session, those lucky and enthusiastic people who were able to see the RAW World Champion "CM Punk" a little closer, and the ravishing Kelly Kelly. It goes without saying that our team left completely enthralled with this session which left them all well prepared for that evening's show.

The ravishing diva "Kelly Kelly"

The entire RAW Roster team, took great care to prepare  their journey to Paris as a great majority of its members were present. The fans were also able to come see HBK for the first time, Chris Jericho, as well as Natalia Neidhart, Beth Phoenix, and Candice Michelle. It goes without saying that Bercy was fully packed and that the show made very many people happy.  As the past year progressed, American Wrestling continued to grow in France, to the great amusement of both wrestling Amateurs and Gods know there are a great deal of them.

The next two events were announced to beautifully conclude 2008:
SmackDown in Nice on the 6th of November and the French American Wrestling Rampage tour one week later in November 

  To finish this RAW report on a high note, I now happily present you photos from this event:
