The June 25, 2007 Edition of RAW is a Professional wrestling television show of the WWE's RAW brand, took place on June 25, 2007 at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. This was a Tribute show to the life of Chris Benoit.
This RAW show was the first WWE show to the gruesome news that Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy and their son Daniel were found dead on the same day. In response to the WWE it rejected their original plans for the show and made it a tribute show in front of empty scenery. The fact that Benoit allegedly killed his wife and child, before he has killed himself, was at the time not known. In response, the WWE decided to give the following character shows no tribute. One regretted in retrospect, to have devoted a Benoit tribute show.
