Monday Night Raw Review 24/09/12

"Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman".  We're introduced with Heyman and Punk in the ring.  No intro.  Heyman has bad news for us, as the show is grinding to a halt.  Raw will not be presented this evening until justice is served.  Heyman is sure we all know what we're talking about.  He shows us the main event of last week, where Punk had his foot on the ropes before the 3-count.  Heyman brings out the ref from the main event of last week, who makes his way out.  Heyman wants him to resign.  JR is the guest commentator this week, by the way.  The ref admits he made a mistake last week, saying he was nervous and should have checked the ropes before completing his count, and he feels terrible.  Heyman applauds the ref for admitting that, and tells him to resign.  Crowd are chanting 'no'.  The ref says although he does apologise, he doesn't feel... CM Punk doesn't care what he feels, as he interrupts him and says he has embarrassed himself, as well as the WWE Champion on CM Punk's show.  Punk asks how the ref got the job in the first place.  The ref explains that when Raw expanded to 3 hours, he was called by AJ as she needed more officials.  Heyman says that the ref is a replacement, a novice, a rookie, not even a ref.  Heyman tells him that tonight when he goes to sleep, he hands him a night mask with the WWE logo and NFL logo.  Punk tells Heyman that that is a very telling piece of eye-wear, as he wore that last week during the match.  He asks the ref that he was the buffoon that was hired by the idiot GM and that if she had a brain she would fire him.  Lee comes round, and into, the ring.  She thanks and dismisses the ref.  Heyman welcomes AJ to her show and assumes she is out here to reverse the decision from last week.  AJ says that when he assumes, he makes an ass out of you and me. HA!  Brilliant... 'cause ass.. u... me... hur hurhurhruhruhruhweaoiurhnwaon.  Anyway, she asks Heyman who he thinks he is holding her show hostage.  Punk tells her who he is, that he's the WWE Champion.  Crowd boos.  He says he is the reason AJ has a job and that he's the reason the audience are all sat in their seats today.  He knows why there's so much hostility between Punk and AJ.  It's because of 2 months ago when AJ proposed to Punk and Punk turned her down.  Punk suggests that is the reason she sent an incompetent ref to screw him over last week.  He said if we forget the match took place, he will forget how AJ worshipped him not long ago.  He asks AJ to let everyone know how intimate the two of them were behind closed doors.  He asks her to tell them why there's a skip in her step, and why he's the best in the world.  Heyman takes over, telling Punk he's got this.  CM Punk chant starts up.  Based on everything Heyman has seen tonight, he gets on one knee, and proposes to AJ.  He says they could be the biggest power couple ever, trumping Brad and Angelina, Bill and Hillary Clinton and Triple H and Stephanie.  Heyman would come up with all the ideas, and AJ could take credit for all of his brilliance.  He tells her not to be offended, as he likes them young, uninhibited, dumb and ambitious.  AJ says nothing, and slaps Paul E. round the FACE before marching off.

That felt very Triple H-esque, when he forced Earl Hebner to reverse his match with Jericho 10+ years ago. Not bad to start with two of the best on the mic.  Whole thing was about 15 minutes heading into the first break.

Refs are backstage talking to AJ.  The ref thanks AJ for standing up for him and promises he won't make the same mistake again.  AJ agrees, as if he does make a mistake again, she will personally see to it that he will never work in this business again.  He embarrassed her.  Ref apologises again, as AJ is staring off into the distance, tears rolling down her face.  She crazy.

Guerrero introduces Mr. Money in the Bank, Dolph Ziggler.  I'M HERE TO SHOW THE WORRRRRRLD!  He's going one-on-one against Kofi.  They had a twitter war earlier in the week apparently, hence the match.  Kofi is accompanied by R-Truth with Little Jimmy in toe.  R-Truth gives Little Jimmy some popcorn and a fizzy drink as Vickie starts bad mouthing his imaginary friend.  Ziggler and Kofi come in to mediate, until the drink is spilt over Vickie.  The ref comes in and holds Ziggler back before ejecting both Vickie and R-Truth.  Glad he ejected them both, as it makes him seem like a more legit official.  Vickie runs after R-Truth.  Now the match can begin.

Kofi and Zig exchange kicks and Kofi gets the upperhand with a dropkick that COMPLETELY MISSED.  Announcers try to sell it as being half-blocked.  Kofi knocks Zig to the floor and flies over the top onto Zig as we hit another ad break.

Ziggler in control now as he hits an Exploder Suplex on Kofi for a 2 count.  Beautiful.  Ziggler slaps a headlock on Kofi as Cole tells us that Criss Angel is the social ambassador for the night.  That's almost as bad as the guest GM's.  Neckbreaker by Dolph gets another 2 count.  "Damn, I'm good!" yells Ziggler.  Yep.  Kofi fights back with punches to the face but is met by a dropkick that actually hits by Ziggler.  Another headlock with body scissors by Ziggles.  Both men exchange punches briefly before Ziggler misses a splash in the corner.  Back and forth again with punches.  Ziggler misses as Kofi does his chops followed by a dropkick and superman punch.  Spinning Boom Drop by Kofi, who sets up for Trouble in Paradise.  Kofi misses and Ziggler goes for another Exploder Suplex.  Kofi goes for the SOS, but is shoved to the corner.  Kingston with a kick to Ziggler followed by a springboard superman punch.  Pace picked up there.  Kofi hits a huge crossbody on Ziggler for a 2.  Good match so far.  Ziggler hits the fameasser for a 2 count himself.  Ziggler goes for the Zig Zag, but Kingston holds onto the ropes.  SOS by Kingston for a 2 1/2 count.  Kingston up top goes for Ziggles, who tried to counters, but gets counter-countered by Kingston who goes back up for another huge crossbody.  JR calls this a main event-type match.  I tend to agree.  Kofi sets up for Trouble in Paradise again, but misses.  Ziggler shoves Kofi into the corner, who looks like he landed on his head.  Zig Zag by Dolph for the 3 count and the win by pinfall.  Great TV match by two of the best in the biz.  Ad break.

Cole and JR throw us to a diner for another Anger Management segment.  Bryan and Shelby are sat together and Shelby says he is very proud.  He's set up a role playing strategy to show that D-Bry and Kane can co-exist peacefully outside of a ring.  Kane shows up with an apron and asks Bryan if he can take his order.  Bryan laughs and Kane tells Shelby that this is stupid.  Shelby convinces him it's not and encourages him to carry on.  Bryan makes an order, and says he wishes he could have someone who's not a 7-foot freak.  Shelby said this isn't Kane, this is 'Gerald', the friendly waiter.  Kane.. uh, Gerald, tells Bryan that they have a new cook, as the old one was really annoying.  He told Bryan that this morning, he took the cook by the beard and dumped it into the fryer.  He then said he took the remains of the fried goat beard and has served it in everything today.  Later there's a twitter vote for the team name of Kane and Bryan.  Not as strong as previous segments, but still funny.

PTP are in the ring following the break, against the team of Ryder and Marella.  Urgh.  Young and Ryder start off.  Young taunts Ryder and gets a slap in the face followed by a flapjack.  Two count for Ryder, who leads Young face first into the turnbuckle.  Young counters by hanging Ryder on the ropes followed by a headlock.  Back suplex attempted by Young but Ryder rolls out and tags Marella who hits some comedy moves, as well as a back suplex.  Young tags Titus in who Marella doesn't see.  Sky High by Titus (I almost wrote tits... hee hee) gets the Prime Time Players the win.  JR puts over the fact that the ref made sure they saw the shoulders were actually down, referencing the opening segment.
  Pretty short match to be anything, but the right guys won.  In my opinion, Ryder and Marella should go back to Superstars and bring up people like Drew McIntyre.  The former have both been around long enough and they've not really lit the world on fire, as their gimmicks are becoming increasingly stale.  I'm not telling you anything you don't already know #seano'haire.

Ooh lovely!  Mrs. Foley's baby boy, the Hardcore Legend, Mick Foley makes his way down as a special guest.  Foley has a bit of a reputation for making some (purposefully) bad promos.  I hope this isn't one, as he is one of the best promo men when he gets going.  Foley thanks everyone, and says that as a fan he sees things that move and inspire him, such as last year's emergence of CM Punk.  He said CM Punk inspired change, but one year later what happened?  Bullying refs, following Heyman.  The Punk Foley knew gave a voice to the voiceless.  Enter, Punk, in a blue hoodie.  Punk brushes past Foley as he grabs a mic.

He tells Foley not to come out here and grandstand to these people.  He tells him if he has something to say he should say it to Punk's face.  He suggests Foley tells everyone why he's really here, and wonders if he's selling a new kid's book.  Foley wondered if he indeed was relevant to today's WWE, but Punk cleared that up last year for him.  After Punk shocked and inspired the world by becoming the WWE Champion, Foley gave Punk a text to congratulate him.  Foley said "How does it feel to be the biggest star in the business?", to which Punk replied "Thank you Mick, that means a lot coming from you".  So, unless Foley is mistaken, he only responded to a few people, one of whom was Foley.  So from someone who still is relevant, he is disturbed not just by his actions, but his alliance with Heyman.

Punk said it goes both ways and tells everyone to show him respect, which is met with boos.  As always, it's typical of Mick to have no idea what he's talking about.  Mick wonders if he didn't, as he used to be a Paul Heyman guy himself.  He says you need to make your journey yourself and he didn't become somebody until he started making decisions on his own.  Punk gets it, Paul Heyman is slime, a liar, stay away from Paul Heyman.  That isn't what Mick meant.  He was told that Heyman would rather climb a tree to tell a lie than stand on the ground and tell the truth.  He doesn't agree with that as Heyman never lied to Foley.  But Heyman is just out for Heyman.  He questions why Punk, one of the best on the mic, needs a mouth piece. Foley asks Punk if he's going to continue to be an inspiration in WWE or a Kool-Aid drinker.  What is Kool-Aid, exactly?  Anyway, Punk asks if they were done.  Foley says if we're done talking about Heyman, they can talk about something Foley is very familiar with: Hell in a Cell.  Not one day in the last 14 days did Foley ask people for respect.  He earned it at King of the Ring 1998.  Anyone who has thrived in HIAC goes on to be respected for their careers.  Don't believe him?  Ask Shawn Michaels, ask Triple H.. ask The Undertaker.

Punk says that was a brilliant speech and asks if he wants the old CM Punk.  If he wants the voice of the voiceless.  Foley wants Punk to step up and show everyone why he's the best in the world by stepping into HIAC by John Cena.  Punk asks if that's what everyone wants.  Apparently.  Punk says he has heard that before from Cena but look at him now.  WWE Champion. What makes the veterans say they see something of themselves in him.  You know what would be more embarrassing than Bret Hart punching him out?  If Punk put his hands on Foley.  Like all of these people, Foley is beneath Punk.  The only thing Punk has done is told the truth.  He wonders how many times he needs to beat Cena is to prove he's the best int he world.  The one thing he doesn't need to do, is anything for them (the audience).  He says Foley put himself through hell for the adulation of these people.  The only thing Punk wants out of them is to bring them to their knees.  Punk said he will be doing that with a microphone, not with a brutal match like HIAC.  Foley got his respect by putting himself through hell.  Punk gets his through his title reign of 309, 310, 311 days etc.  Foley gives Punk a number. 29.  A total of cumilitive days Foley held the title through all three of his reigns.  Foley gets fired up and asks Punk if he wants to be a statistic, or does he want to be a legend?  He spoke to AJ and Foley said that Punk has given the opportunity to have the match with John Cena at Hell in a Cell or not.  Foley asks Punk to think about it good and hard, and to make the right decision for himself, for Foley and for the audience.  Have a nice day.

Great promo by Foley.  Lots of people don't know how to control the flow of a promo unlike Foley.  Start off slow, get the groundwork going and then get fired up as you make your point.  Fantastic.  Not that I'm a pro, but I am a pro-watcher so screw you!  Ad break.

Miz is out now, no doubt against Ryback, who destroyed the set of 'Miz TV' last week.  That was awful last week, although Miz's reaction to Ryback's destruction was great.  Ryback intimidates Miz in the corner, but Miz hits back with punches, before getting knocked down by Ryback.  "Get in there", says Ryback as he shoves Miz in the corner, followed by shoulders to the gut.  Massive throw across the over side.  Up on the shoulders does Miz go on Ryback, but Miz squirms out and goes for his backbreaker/neckbreaker combo.  Ryback lifts Miz back up (from that position?! Daymn) and hits a pumphandle slam. Ryback slams the back of Miz's head against the mat, who rolls out the ring.  Miz is chased by Ryback who tries to go back in the ring.  Ryback grabs Miz's feet but Miz shoves Ryback into the security wall.  Ryback picks Miz up and throws him back in the ring.  Miz capitalises with a kick to the face and DDT for 2.  Powerbomb from Ryback, that Cole calls a spinebuster.  Moron.  Ryback sets up for his stiff clothesline as a fan tries to get in the ring.  What a knob.  Ryback hits Shell Shocked for the win.  IC Championship at HIAC, much?

We're back to the diner where Bryan and Kane are sat down eating with one another.  Funny already watchking Kane but salt on his food.  Bryan can't believe Shelby is making them sit there until they work out their differences.  Kane agrees as he says they can never be friends.  Bryan says it is too bad as they destroyed everyone on Smackdown!  Did Kane hear their screams in pain?  Kane said it was fantastic.  AHAHAHAHAHA!  Okay, I had to pause 'cause I was laughing too much to type.  As Kane and Bryan were going through hitting the rest of the tag team division with chairs, they were getting more and more excited, like in When Harry Met Sally.  That scene.  Ahahaha.  Hahaha. Haha.  Okay I didn't laugh that much.  Mae Young finishes it with the line "I'll have what their having".  That was awesome.

Back from break, AJ with four refs.  She said the refs are the backbone of this business.  She says everyone makes mistakes and it's okay.  She tells them to go out and have a great rest of the show.  ADR, Otunga and Rodriguez turn up.  AJ knows ADR is upset about NOC, and ADR mistakingly thinks he is getting another shot at the WHC.  As all three men are victims of the Brogue Kick, they get revenge.  She has made a 6-man tag match with ADR, Otunga and Rodriguez vs. Sheamus, Mysterio and Sin Cara.  ADR is mad about this, but Rodriguez gets pumped and skips away.

Wade Barrett!  BOOOOOM!  I love this man.  So, he was from Manchester and he's now from Preston.  Right.  Tyson Kidd is Barrett's opponent.  Sorry Kidd, you're supremely talented but I can't wait for Barrett to beat you severely.  Kidd starts with a dropkick and kicks to the leg.  More kicks tto the mid-section and face followed by a quick dropkick for a 2 count.  We want something from the crowd.  Big kick to the gut by Barrett and clothesline to follow it up.  He ties Kidd up in the ropes, like the reverse of Sheamus to hit knees to the gut.  Running big boot to Kidd sends him to the floor as Barrett smugly looks to the audience.  Barrett shoves Kidd into the apron and rolls him in the ring before shouting at the front row.  Kidd coutners with a shoulder and roll up for 2.  Barrett, annoyed, hits the Winds of Change sidewalk slam.  If I can remember that, Cole, why can't you?  I'm hating on Cole today for some reason.  Barrett hits 'The Souvenir', his new elbow-strike finisher.  Barrett should be in the title picture at the latest next year.  Jerry Lawler interview next.

Cole is in the ring as he tells everyone about the unfortunate event 2 weeks ago when Lawler collapsed during Raw.  The Dr. told Cole today that it was an absolute miracle that Lawler is so far along with his recovery considering the serious heart attack he had.  Crowd applaud that.  Good.  Cole introduces Lawler, who gets a big pop from the crowd.  King is sat in a throne.  Hahaha.  Brilliant.  He looks pretty good considering the heart attack.  Lawler has a raspy voice because of the ventilator, but says it is great to be back on Monday Night Raw.  Cole asks Lawler the last thing he remembers from that night.  Lawler remembers the first segment of the show with Hart and Punk.  After that Orton and he had a match agains Ziggler and Punk, but Lawler doesn't remember the match whatsoever.  The thing he remembers from that point is waking up in the hospital.  He thought he was stall in Aruba, where he and his girlfriend had visited 2 weeks prior.  Cole tells Lawler he has received thousands upon thousands of well-wishes from friends, familiy and fans alike.  Lawler is very grateful of the amount of response from everyone.  Cole asks when Lawler is going to be back.  Lawler says that this was just a matter of time, since Raw went from 2 hours to 3 hours, how could anyone sit with Cole for that long without having a heart attack?  He's kidding, of course.  He's leaving his return date up to his doctors.  Cole thanks Lawler, who gets another nice pop from the crowd as his music plays.  "Jerry" chant fires up too.

Otunga is out now, for the 6 man tag match.  That's annoying.  The heels make their entrance, we get an ad break.  The faces make their entrance, we get an ad break.  Cheeky bastards.

Anyway we're back with Otunga trying to throw Sheamus out the ring, who gets thrown out by Sheamus.  Sheamus goes for his chest strikes but ADR and Roddy save Otunga.  Sheamus comes off the apron to knock Otunga down as Mysterio and Cara fly through the ropes to take ADR and Roddy out.  Back in the ring, Otunga is met with a knee to the side of the head by Sheamus, who tags in Cara.  Cara with quick kicks to Otunga but is hit with a vicious elbow.  Roddy tags himself in and is met with a rather lovely arm drag by Cara.  Roddy is a trained wrestler and pretty good from my understanding.  He sold the arm drag very well anyway.  ADR kicks Cara who is then knocked down by Roddy for a 1 count.  Roddy tags in ADR, who kicks Cara in the face, followed by a snap suplex.  ADR with a headlock following the 1 count.  Sin Cara chant starts.  Cara tries to fight back but is kicked in the gut, followed by a jumping stamp to the back of the head.  ADR tags Roddy back in, who punches Cara in the chest.  Roddy tries to take the mask off but is kicked in the face.  Cara goes for a tilt the whirl armdrag, which almost messes up, but hits it anyway.  Must be hard since Roddy is wearing a shirt but anyway.  ADR and Mysterio in with Mysterio in control.  Kick to the head gets a 2 count for Mysterio.  ADR shoves Mysterio away and charges to be dropped by Rey.  Rey goes up top but is met with a jumping enziguiri by ADR. Lovely.  PTP are backstage looking on.  Otunga in now hits a stalling scoop slam.  He tags Roddy in, who punches Rey to the floor.  He is taking instruction from ADR, who tells him to cover Rey.  Rey tries to fight away but Roddy grabs his legs.  Otunga tags in, and then tags ADR in who hits a running kick to the back of Rey for a 2 count.  Rear chin lock by ADR.

Rey eventually fights out but ADR beats him down.  ADR goes for a sunset flip but Rey rolls through and hits a dropkick.  Rey gets the hot tag to Sheamus as Otunga is also tagged in.  Sheamus hits his axe handles and goes for his steam roller.  Sheamus goes for a Brogue but Otunga avoids and tags in roddy, who doesn'[t want to be in.  Sheamus brings Roddy in the hard way and hits his clubbing blows to the chest.  Sheamus gets Rey in who hits the 619.  ADR goes for a powerbomb on Rey who hits a hurricanrana.  Sheamus tags in Cara who comes off the rope and gets the 3 count.  Okay, Rey came in ILLEGALLY.  Why did the ref not do anything about that?  Damn cheaters.  Not to mention a ring announcer being one of the members of the heel team.  How is that fair?  Gawsh.

Post match, Rey and Cara encourage Sheamus to Brogue Kick Otunga.  No need for that, is there?

We're back from the break back to the diner.  Shelby is sat with Bryan and Kane.  There's silence as Shelby then says they have made tremendous progress.  There is one final p;iece of identity therapy.  He calls over the waitress who gives them some food.  Bryan gets some meat and Kane gets a salad.  Kane sniffs the lettuce leaf as Bryan inspects the meat ball.  Kane eats the leaf as Bryan hesitantly nibbles at the meatball.  Shelby asks Kane how he feels.  Kane responds with a massive burp.  He asks Bryan how he felt.  It wasn't as bad as he thought, but starts convulsing.  Shelby kept shouting no at Bryan, so he wouldn't throw up.  Bryan vomits in Shelby's lap as Kane asks for the tip.  Brilliant as usual.

Cole is at ringside as he asks people to vote on three team names for Kane and Bryan.  I hate all three of those.  Team Teamwork, Team Hell no and Team Friendship.  All wank.

Bryan is out now for the unveiling of this team's name.  What's wrong with Kane and Bryan?  Bryan is shouting no at the audience as usual.  I only just got Team Hell No.  Wow.  Which incidentally won, which my wife guessed correctly.  Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow attack the tag team champions.  Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow introduce themselves as the next champions as 'Rhodes Scholar'.  That's cool with me, although they seem to be ignoring the current division and creating a new tag division on top of the old one.

Layla and Alicia Fox are out next to face Eve and Beth Phoenix.  Thank God, Phoenix is here.  Layla hits a sneak attack on Phoenix.  She hits her hop-up crossbody for a 2 count and tags in Alicia.  Layla hits that spinning facebuster and a dropkick by Alicia.  Alicia dodges Stratus style and hits a dropkick.  Roll up by Alicia for two.  Pumphandle slam by Phoenix, boo ya.  Foot buried in the face of Alicia followed by a slingshot suplex.  Eve tags herself in and hits her finisher for the win.  Unsurprisingly quick match.  Hopefully this will cause some more animosity between Beth and Eve.  Kaitlyn's music hits.  Lyn thanks Eve for the 'twit's she gave her when getting well.  She scored the security footage of the attack from NOC.  She couldn't see the face but saw the hair of the attacker, who was blond.  Beth is denying it.  She turns round to receive a neckbreaker from Eve.  At least there's a bit more intrigue for the Divas, I guess?

The Funkasaurus is out next.  I'm sick of him, I won't lie.  Great talent for his size, but the gimmick is annoying now.  His opponent is Tensai, another big-man-failure.  Did I say that outloud?  No, I typed it.  Collar and elbow tie up by the two men.  They break it up and Tensai hits an uppercut followed by headbutts in the corner.  Albertensai charges Brodus but gets a headbutt for his troubles.  Brodus splahes Tensai and hits the T-Bone suplex on Tensai.  That was impressive.  Brodus goes for a splash but misses.  Tensai goes for a splash but misses.  Big Show makes a surprise entrance.  Nice to see you, Mr. Paul.  He gives a WMD to Tensai.  Brodus ain't happy about that and charges Big Show, who knocks him out.  Big Show looks out, shrugs, and walks off.  Simple, yet effective.

John Cena is out now, for something.  He doesn't talk to the camera this time, 'cause he's hurting.  He carefully makes his way to the ring.  I genuinely hope he gets better as soon as possible, but he looks to be milking it a bit.  Lawler looks better than Cena does.  After a pause, Cena acknowledges the mixed reaction from the fans.  Cena wasn't supposed to be here, but with his future now in question he wanted to say thank you in person.  He personally wanted to thank them for their support of Rise Above Cancer.  He says to the world that the WWE Universe are a very powerful group of people.  "Cena" chant fires up.  He said he is here tonight to apologise to the two refs recently been tied up in controversy.  He apologises for CM Punk being a douchebag.  He says Punk has grossly misquoted Cena.  Cena told Punk that if he walked in and out of Boston with the championship, it would define who he is.  Cena said he was right, he said Punk has turned into just another guy.  Cena uses lots of non-swearing swear words to describe Punk.  He then apologises for this:  We have a lot of fun Monday Night, you boo, you cheer and every monday night is crazy because of you.  Another small Cena chant.  The fact that Cena has to sit on the bench for a little while quite frankly sucks.  Cena makes a guarentee.  He is not going to guarantee his recovery, but he will guarantee that he will walk into Hell in a Cell to fight.  Tonight, in front of the world, he guarantees that at Hell in a Cell, CM Punk.

Punk interrupts, with Heyman who is holding the belt high and proud.  Punk is staring down a little kid.  He is staring down all the kids in the front row.  He goes to give a kid a high five but keeps moving his hand away. So unbelievably harsh, but brilliant, too.  It's a show, kids.  They'll embrace said kid when the show is over, I'm sure.  Punk is clapping.  He pulls out a mic like it were a sword.  Beautiful speech, Punk says.  He said it's similar to what he hears every 4 years from politicians.  He said Cena should run for president, because he's missed his calling as a politician.  He wants to call into question Punk's integrity?  He doesn't buy all the crap Cena shovels.  The people of Albany, a dump by the way, might buy it, but Punk doesn't.  There's only one Punk, Cena knows him well, since he has beat him multiple times.  He mentions Punk's 10th longest reign, which won't end anytime soon, especially by the hand of a one-armed man.  Cena tells him to shut up and just face him at HIAC and see what happens.  Punk isn't accepting his challenge because Cena constantly gets title shots and no one else does, which isn't fair.  A good point, to be fair.  The main reason CM Punk isn't facing Cena (CM Punk chant starts, which causes Punk to pause.. then they boo).  Punk tells the audience to shut up and he will put them all in their place once he puts Cena in his, so get in line, Albany. Punk says Cena wouldn't be medically cleared to compete at HIAC, not because of his current injury, but because of what Punk ois going to do.  He said talking to the most dangerous man in the WWE like that is stupid, let alone when he only has one arm.  He has one piece of advice for Cena: Run, right now, while you can.  Punk is going to turn his back, count to 5 and if Cena is still there, with his pink attire and broken arm, Punk is going to hurt him.  And it will seem like the last 8 days will be a picnic compared to the 8 months of recovery from a beating by Punk.  He demands respect.  He has til 5.  Punk backs away and slowly turns around.  Heyman is holding the belt up to the audience.  Punk starts to countdown as Cena pulls out a tube from his pocket.  Cena isn't moving.  Punk turns around and gets hit in the gut by the lead pipe.  Real men wear pink, says Cena, and says he hopes to see Punk at Hell in a Cell.  Now that's what I call a pipe bomb, says Cena as Punk is doubled over at the top of the ramp with his belt.  Cena goes over to the announce desk as he shakes the hands of Cole and JR, as well as some audience members.

Punk is shown backstage spluttering as he walks past Foley.  He gives him evils, then turns back to attack him.  He says "You know what, Mick?" and kicks him to the floor.  He begins to walk away, turns around again but is stopped in his tracks as he sees Ryback standing there.  I so wanted it to be The Undertaker.  Wishful thinking on my part, I think.  And that ends Raw.  I hope you enjoyed it.  I thought it was pretty cool.  See you next week!
