Not able to watch tonight’s WWE Raw show? No problem cause we’ve got you covered with tonight’s results!

Sacramento, CA-Michael Cole greets us to tonight WWE Raw as he’s joined once again by Jim Ross & John Bradshaw Layfield as John Cena comes out to a lukewarm reception. Cena wants to know if anyone missed him as he feels very good to be back in the ring tonight. Cena didn’t realize it until he was away for a week just how dysfunctional Kane & Daniel Bryan really are. Cena also takes jabs at Antonio Cesaro for having large nipples as he soon focuses on the divas briefly as he takes a shot at Raw GM AJ Lee and offers to take her out on a date for a burger. He also mentions how Arnold Swazenager is the Social Media Ambassador tonight as Vince McMahon will be delivering his WWE State of the Union address. We soon hear Cena bring up how he feels the fans don’t have a voice right now as they are being silenced by the current WWE Champion CM Punk. One way or another he feels CM Punk will cross paths with him at Hell in a Cell. Cena wants for CM Punk to stop “being a punk” and be a man and taken him on at Hell in a Cell.

Cena thanks the fans for allowing him to speak as we soon hear the music of Ryback! Very briefly we see Ryback cross paths with John Cena as he makes his way to the ring.


Match 1: Ryback defeated Epico & Primo

Match 2: Brodus Clay vs. R-Truth

This match actually ended up not happening because R-Truth noticed that “Little Jimmy” is going through the waves of puberity right now (perhaps at the hands of Naomi & Cameron). Truth suggests to Clay all should dance and they do for a bit. Vince McMahon soon appears on the titantron and tells them all to leave the ring because he’s making his way out for the WWE State of the Union address!

End of Segment


Vince McMahon comes out to address the state of the WWE as he talks about how it has drama, action but that the most important thing they have is action. Vince feels the fans need to see champions take on the very best as soon we see WWE Champion CM Punk interrupt! CM Punk is pushing a new “GTS” yellow shirt with a bald head as he comes into the ring to confront Mr McMahon for not mentioning his name as he spoke about champions facing the best. Punk feels the people in the back don’t respect him nor do the people in attendance as he wants to know if Mr. McMahon respects him. McMahon respects Punk for being champion this long but doesn’t respect him for allinging himself with PAul Heyman. As result of that McMahon feels that “he’s not a CM Punk” guy.

CM Punk bashes the heck out of McMahon as he feels that the WWE Chairman should be on his knees kissing his feet as he feels that he should be appreciated. Not men like Jerry Lawler, Jim Ross as it’s all about him and that he’s the reason why the company is even to succeed. That if it wasn’t for him the WWE would be nothing right now and McMahon wouldn’t have millions in his pocket and his own personal jet. The WWE Champion suggests that if McMahon doesn’t watch it he’ll do just like he did back at Money in the Bank last year and walk away with the WWE title but this time not return! Harsher words from the champion as he crosses the line mentioning how he’s better than everyone in the WWE. Mr. McMahon tells Punk that he’s nothing like Andre “The Giant”, Triple H, Undertaker, Shawn Michaels or Stone Cold Steve Austin as the champion interrupts him.

Punk pokes fun at Austin as he feels Steve Austin’s greatest accomplishment was beating up a clueless millionaire who’s become even more clueless and is now a senior citizen. CM Punk feels that he’s constantly being slapped in the face as he bashes McMahon for slapping him in the face for years! Soon CM Punk shockingly slaps McMahon in the face to go walking out the ring. McMahon tells Punk that he should fire him right now but that he will if Punk doesn’t face him in the ring tonight. “You may kick my a#*, but by the time this night is over, you’ll learn something about RESPECT!”- Mr. McMahon to the WWE Champion to end this explosive segment.
