RAW Results 9/17/12 – I’m The Tag Team Champions! No I’m The Tag Team Champions!

Pre-RAW Commercial

Cole talks about the ending of NoC, and that they have previously unseen footage to show us about the end of the main event last night.

Music & Pyro

The first pictures of the video are Cena in his new pink shirt. Cole talks about how controversial the end of NoC was last night.

In Ring Segment

Punk’s music, but put comes Heyman with an egotistical smirk on his face. Heyman introduces himself to heat. Last night he felt like us, he got to witness history in an enormous fashion. He watched Punk defend the WWE Championship against Cena. Heat for Heyman. The end of the match is embroiled in controversy, so he’s going to ask Chad Patten to the ring to defend his ruling to the entire WWE audience.

Patten to the ring. Heyman thanks him for coming out. Heyman shows a still photo of the end of the match and it shows both sets of shoulders down and he counted them both down. Everyone’s been on Patten’s case, even Cena was all over him last night. Patten made the right decision, didn’t he? Patten says he did. Heyman says they admire him for his conviction. There’s more evidence to vindicate Patten. A fan took a video, but it was removed from the internet, of course it had to be by Cena. They show the video of the German suplex, then the ref counting them both down. Heyman says no more needs to be seen. It was a draw, and that goes to the Champ – Punk. That’s what Punk says, he deserves their respect and the refuse to give it to you (Heyman means to Punk).

Cena’s music hits and he heads to the ring. Heyman says in the interest of clarity.

“Paul, shut up.” Cena goes on to tell Heyman that he agrees, Patten did the right thing. “Cena sucks!” chants. Cena says his fans know him, he can barely use his cell phone, never mind taking a video down online! Patten is a respected official who has no bias toward Cena. He was talking to Patten about the finality of the decision. Last night was a battle, his ankle is taped and the match was taken to WrestleMania proportions. That’s like ending the Superbowl in a tie! He’s sure everyone wanted to see that battle end in a real way. Heyman is a Punk supporter, and Punk has always clamored for respect, but retaining in a tie, did Punk really earn the respect he’s seeking.

Since Cena values his opinion, in one word, yes. “NO!” from the fans. Cena says Heyman and Punk’s feeling of respect differ. Respect isn’t earned by hitting someone after the match is over. It’s about beating everyone and getting in the ring and yelling you’re the best in the world! Like the fans, he wants to know who the winner will be. He wants to do it tonight, even with his bad ankle. They have a ref, all they need is Punk.

Heyman says Punk will tell Cena to his face what he feels of Cena’s challenge – when he gets there. But hearing it from Heyman is the same because he’s the voice, of the voice of the voiceless.

ADR’s music and he comes out with Ricardo in tow! On the stage he tells Cena to stop crying, he had his chance and lost. ADR, on the other hand didn’t have a chance due to Booker. The brogue kick was banned, then reinstated just before his Title match. Unlike Cena, ADR wasn’t completely ready, so if anyone deserves a rematch it’s the man who never lies, ADR.

AJ’s music and she skips out wearing black shirt, black blazer, black and white tie and matching black shorts. She skips around the ring, then in. She says speaking on behalf of Booker, they both deserves second chances. She’s combining last night’s main event into a super main event. ADR and Punk will team up to face Sheamus, and wait for it, Cena. Who knows, this could go a great way in deciding who will get a rematch and who will be in it.

  • Bigdaddychuck

    I predict big show bs Sheamus at hiac!!!

    • Bigdaddychuck

      This crowd is so dead and making raw drag on!!!! Total lackluster raw..

      • Bigdaddychuck

        Did the totally drop the AJ and VICKI storyline from 2 weeks ago?? By the way the NFL game took 2 hours for the first half. Both raw and mnf dragged tonight..

  • mark3man

    So KB, I think you got your wish, not sure if AJ could show more skin while still wearing a suit….(sorry I know thats from your blog and not live results but I was a very happy man)

    • Ranfery25

      Totally Agree with you!

  • I_Mark_Out

    It's actually painful to watch this Mysterio/Cara v.s. Primo-Duo match. Hard to remember a crowd being more dead, even than diva's match.

    At least then people are walking around or murmuring about other things they'd like to see. Cara's debut was so horrendous after all of those suspensions. Could have been something amazing.

    When the match first started, I was excited. They are all mexican/luchadore background wrestlers.

    Thank god, Mysterio finally in, and some small pops. It just sounds like the arena is empty. But you can obviously see it isn't. The only reason this match has any type of hype is Mysterio.

    Guess I understand more about a performer "drawing" ; I just feel bad. Hard … to … watch …

    Cara gets the pin. Crowd almost seems relieved the match is over …

    Been a while since I commented though … maybe I've missed something lately, or same old raw, as usual these days?

  • I_Mark_Out

    Come to think of it, the crowd is dead for almost everything tonight …

    Very bad crowd … sad for the "home state" of WWE …

    Wish we were back in Canada tonight … sorry if that sounds unpatriotic to Connecticut … Just saying …

  • C.J. Lewis

    Is it just me or is that crowd pretty much dead tonight?

    • I_Mark_Out

      Crowd is dead as post-mortem can be. Maybe they got a political speech before the show in regard to Linda and the senate run. Too much in WWE these days. All this media and politics and movies; should have been completely separate.

      I feel like I tune in to a Reality-Sitcom every week, rather than a wrestling entertainment venue. It's just … not the same. Just not the same … :( … just not the same, sorry, all I can say right now …

  • Mike

    It looks like ryback is GETTIN a title shot.

  • mark3man

    ad break followed subway product placement followed by ad break…..Its too much

  • The Dude

    Why is everyone saying that the crowd is dead? It’s not as lively as the past two weeks, but the crowd seems to be having a good time to me.

    • Ranfery25

      Totally agree with you on that ,I don’t see how it is dead. I mean its not as loud as Canada’s Audience however they are pretty loud and into it.

  • whitethought_

    Anyone notice how there were 2 chairs & 2 couches yet Miz and Booker T didn't even sit down.

  • Joe

    Damn ortan how’s now joined the cena club lets go randy” “randy sucks”

  • Nick B

    Do JBL and cole not like each other? Because they are very convincing in my opinion.

    • nWo 4 Life

      Yeah, I don’t think neither of them like Cole. Things looked very awkward at first.

  • Bryan

    Cole and JBL just mentioned Syracuse University. Tremedous pop from my room haha

  • C.J. Lewis

    Gee, didn’t see that coming or anything, lol. I’ve never seen that referee before. Coincidence? Yeah, I think so.

  • Evon Reese

    Did anyone else notice Cena saying Motherfu$ker and swearing while he was talking to Sheamus during Punks entrance?

  • antcroff

    Raw was great tonight

  • scott seefong

    replacement wwe refs?

  • whitethought_

    Never seen that ref in the main event before. I thought he was brought in so Punk can beat him up and gain more heat since the ref blew the call. Would've made some sense in my opinion.

  • ghodis

    The best crowds are in the uk!. I did notice the crowd was rather dead. Chicago crowd was good the other week. Mainly because of the hometown boy cm punk. Raw was average but got to give respect to jbl and jim ross that made Raw worth watching for me.

  • Jas

    Wasn't that ref Brad Maddox/Brent Wellington from FCW/NXT?? Sure looked an awful lot like him. Will this be his call up angle? Ref turned eventual wrestler? He's a great talent!

    • Kings of Wrestling

      Yeah it is. That's the second time I have seen him. He was the ref for the divas battle royal
