CM Punk comes out to another great ovation despite being kicked in the head. CM Punk brings up the line king made on the 100oth episode of Raw claiming “CM Punk turned his back on WWE as he points out that it was Jerry who turned his back on WWE as he bashed the WWE champion. As far as he’s concerned with Jerry Lawler he’s sorry that the King made it into the WWE Hall of Fame simply by beating up a bunch of nobody’s and for working with Andy Kauffman. That the one time Lawler finally does have a WrestleMania match/moment it’s with Michael Cole and he looses to him! CM Punk doesn’t apologize for kicking him in the head as it was coming because Jerry turned his back on Punk and pushed him aside to leave his ring which he considered disrespectful and as result kicked him in the head! The WWE Champion picks up on the emotion on King’s face as he looks like he wants a fight. Punk toys with King about the idea of the two throwing it down tonight and what would happen as Punk feels he’d embarrass the hell out of King. Punk offers Jerry the opportunity to find out tonight to go head to head.

Jerry claims all he wants is an apology and not a fight. CM Punk tells Jerry that he can read it on his face that he wants a fight and tells him to think it over. Bold words from the WWE Champion who leaves the ring shouting respect as Jerry tells him he’ll think it over.

Milwaukee, WI shows love to “The Game” Triple H who comes out to a nice pope from the crowd as he’s in dress clothes, long-sleeve shirt and tie. He makes his way to the ring giving a few fans hand shakes as he looks a bit choked up in the ring. Nice ovation continues after the music goes off but dies down as Hunter looks around speechless for a bit as the ovation continues. Triple H cuts to the chase and address his retirement as the crowd chants NO! NO! NO!  Triple H tells the WWE Universe if there’s one thing he learned it’s never say never. How he wanted to step foot in this ring and create something no one will ever forget. Also to retire from the ring before it retires him as he feels everyone comes to a crossroads in their career. That when you get to that crossroad you face as time as it’s no longer on your side.  Triple H never wanted to be the guy just hanging out or stayed around too long or waiting for the nostalgia pop or be the guy someone is willing to write a check for. That he don’t want to be the guy too beat up or crippled to hold his own kids or the punch drunk fighter when the wrestling life is over. That for the first time in his life he’s at a crossroads as Brock Lesnar took him to this point.

Triple H isn’t sure how to answer retirement as he points out how he’s tired and broken again. He wants to be the Cerebral Assassin, The Game, King of Kings and rise again to kick Brock Lesnar’s ass because that’s what he does! Great ovation from the crowd as Hunter tells them that’s what he wants to do but the truth is he doesn’t know if he can. Brock Lesnar has forced Triple H to ask the question is he done? If he can’t come back and beat Brock Lesnar, come back better than before than maybe it answers his question. Great ovation from the crowd who tell him he cans till do it as Triple H points out how he can come out here and say thank you. Whether you love them or hate them, every person that’s stepped foot in the ring, they put their body, sweat, tears and make sacrifices all in the name of the fans and for their entertainment.

Triple H thanks the fans for always being in his corner all these years and thanks them for letting him play the game. Hunter tells them that hopefully he’s done something in this ring that no one will ever forget as he drops the microphone and tries to leave before the fans chant “Thank you Hunter”.

End of WWE Raw results

Overall a pretty solid episode of WWE Raw that slowly seems to be coming more together than in recent weeks. Really loved all the matches on tonight’s show although I could’ve done without the divas match as it surely didn’t help seeing Vicki Guerrero tell the divas to hurry up. must admit i love the Triple H curve ball given to fans about him appearing to have retired as it’s a nice way to cool off the rivalry with Brock Lesnar until they decide to pick it back up. Also loved the Daniel Bryan with Kane in therapy as that was a classic segment and had me having flashbacks to Raw episodes of yesterdays. Big bonus for tonight’s episode was not seeing Big Show for once as it’s a breath of fresh air! This week I give Raw 8/10.
