Video

Explaining RAW Roulette tonight, then onto the Royal Rumble. Cena won the Royal Rumble Match. Punk faced The Rock, and controversy rocked the WWE Title Match. Punk’s victory was short lived when VKM came out to strip Punk of the Title, but The Rock stopped VKM and said he’d take the Title from Punk. The match was restarted and The Rock won.

Backstage Segment

EXCUSE ME! EXCUSE ME! Vickie says that tonight is RAW Roulette. There’s three wheels – the wheel of Superstars, the wheel of stips, and third is Vickie Vegas Challenge. Tonight Cesaro will face Orton, the stip will be – she spins – Special Guest Ref!

In Ring Segment

Punk’s music and he comes stomping out, yelling at the cameraman to get out of his way, ripping up posters and stomping around yelling. Into the ring he yells this day 435 of the longest Title reign of the modern era. He beat The Rock, continued his streak and is now The People’s Champion. He didn’t lose! He won! They want to put a cheater on a pedestal? Someone who can’t pin Punk without help. You’re all cheap swindlers like VKM. Just like The Rock! He didn’t need help, or for someone to restart a match – illegally, I might add. This is worse than Bret Hart. It will forever be known as the Phoenix Screw Job. I got screwed! I got screwed!

The fans go wild against Punk and for The Rock.

He asks the fans if they want to party? Celebrate The Rock? There’s no restarts or water breaks in his world. He’s the Champ, The People’s Champion, and he’s there to crash the party!

VKM’s music hits and he steps out on the stage and Punk goes wild.

You’re a no good, cheap flesh peddling hack promoter!

VKM says he crashed Punk’s party and will again tonight. He has proof that Punk was in a scheme with Heyman and The Shield.

Heyman with a mic, but VKM cuts him off and says he’s had enough of Heyman’s crap. Later there will be a Personal Performance Review, including the video footage VKM has, and it could end in Heyman’s termination.

VKM leaves, Punk is stomping around the ring yelling and seething. Heyman looks a bit green around the gills.

Winner – Cena (1:57)

Recap of the AA and three. Cena with a mic looks around at the fans, getting some pop, but a lot of heat. He says that by the sound of it, some of them didn’t pick him for the Royal Rumble. Any of the 29 could come down and tell how he should have win the Royal Rumble. But this man can stand in the ring and say that he won the Royal Rumble. No doubt that throwing Ryback was an unpredicable and enormous step, but it’s the first step. Then the winner issues a challenge to the Champ of their choosing for WrestleMania. For him, this is his most difficult step. “Cena sucks!” chants fill the arena. Cena says the choice for him, Title aside, the Champ will be Punk or The Rock. Punk, a man who for the last 2 years has been impossible for Cena to beat. Say what you will about Punk, a Champ finds a way to win, and the past 6 times, he’s done that. Either he’s won, or Cena hasn’t gotten the job done.

Then, of course, there’s The Rock. A man who he very openly spoke about before he returned. He did that so The Rock would challenge Cena. The Rock made that challenge, and Cena opened himself up for the next year, telling us all how much it meant for him to beat The Rock. For one year he jousted with The Rock and not only proved to be in The Rock’s league, but there was moments The Rock couldn’t carry his jock strap. Everything seemed perfect, until April 1st, WrestleMania XXVIII and it was all destroyed. Everyone remembers who won and lost. The Rock won, Cena lost. “Rocky!” chants fill the arena. With the legions of The Rock’s fans chanting his name, where better than Las Vegas, a city built off of making odds. Does he go with the WHC, which he has better odds, or after one of the WWE Champs who he has no chance of beating. He’s choosing here and now. I, John Cena, challenge at WrestleMania XXIX – he stops and looks at the WrestleMania sign and listens to the “Rocky!” chants – I challenge the WWE Champion. Both The Rock and Punk are marked men. They are all on the Road To WrestleMania…

The Shield’s noises hit. They come through the stands as JBL yells at Cena to get out of there or he won’t make it to WrestleMania. The Shield into the ring and they’re all over him. Ambrose pulls Cena back as he’s still throwing blows at the other two.

Sheamus’ music and he rushes in, but they’re all three on Sheamus now, beating him down in a corner. They stomp Sheamus down in a corner.

“Feed me more!” and he throws Ambrose, then Rollins from the ring. Reigns stayed in and pushed Ryback over. Ryback pulled from the ring and slammed into the stairs. Sheamus out, but they send him into the post. Back in to go after Cena, and Cena tries to fight back, but he has no chance with the numbers. Reigns yells as the other two raise Cena up.

In Ring Segment

Justin announces our new WWE Champion, The Rock! Rocky comes out to the stage, belt in hand. He looks at the fans, bounces a bit, then heads for the ring. The Rock poses on a corner, belt held high. To the opposite corner and belt held high, as he flops that spinner belt all around. The Rock soaks up all the love from the fans. The Rock looks up at the WrestleMania sign, listening to the chants.

The Rock wipes tears from his eyes, and is obviously choked up as he calls for the mic. He’s about to speak, but stops and smiles, the fans go wild again. He says there’s only one word that describes the spirit of tonight. One word that symbolizes our entire journey. That word is FINALLY. Finally, The Rock has come back to Las Vegas! Finally, The Rock is WWE Champion! “Rocky!” chants fill the arena.

There’s no accolade on this earth that’s more deeply ingrained in my blood than this WWE Championship. From 1998 – 2003 he had the honor of winning 7 WWE Championships. After ten years, winning it again, this is the proudest moment of his career. He’s thanked his friends (chokes up), already thanked his family (chokes more), but would like to take a moment to thank all of you. The Rock has to stop talking and though he’s smiling, it’s obvious that he’s feeling this in a huge way.

He stops and listens to the fans again, more chants. For 434 days, Punk has come out here and ran his mouth and said they didn’t count, didn’t matter, each of you were nothing. He’s there to tell them that those crap days are over! No longer is Punk going to come out looking like a tattooed homeless freak, followed by his bald manager, Paul Heyman. He’s not coming out thinking of Punk, but if he has a bra big enough to hold his deep fried Twinkie tits.

More of The Rock listening to the chants. Tonight we usher in a new era. The People’s Era. They’re going to celebrate. Bouncing baby Buddha under a moonlit sky, we’re partying in Las Vegas, and we’re all getting PIE! The fans go wild for this, but then Punk’s music hits. King yells – buzzkill!

Punk comes out and yells for the music to stop. Punk yells at the fans to shut up, nobody asked them for their irrelevant opinion, and he doesn’t want to hear it right now. Punk says The Rock is embarrassing himself and Punk. For 434 he made that Title special, now The Rock is going to flush it down the toilet. The Rock didn’t win that, it was spoon-fed to him, just like everything in his crappy life!

“You suck!” chants. Punk says yeah, I suck, vilify me now because in 20 years you’ll be calling me a genius, you’re just too stupid to realize it now. The fans are hot! Punk says if The Rock was a man, he’d realize that the Title is prestigious because Punk made it prestigious. For 434 days! If The Rock was a man, that 3rd generation blood, if he had any respect for himself, his father, his grandfather, he’d walk up that ramp and say Sir, Mr. Punk, here’s your Title back. I stole this from you. I didn’t earn this. He’d give it back and say congratulations on being best in the world. Then apologizing for tarnishing what Punk made so great.

The Rock just stares, then brings the mic up. If you had an ounce of manhood and nuts between his legs, you would walk down that ramp and come and take it. The Rock holds the belt out. So you got two choices. You can come in this ring and face me like a man, or you can stay up there like a punk ass bitch!

Punk doesn’t look happy, but starts walking to the ring, but stops on the bottom of the ramp, before the padding starts. “Cookie Puss!” chants. Punk says he’s going to stand on the stage like a punk ass bitch, because it’s cool to swear ladies and gentlemen. I’m going to go ahead and stand up here like a punk ass bitch because Punk doesn’t do things on your terms. I do things when I want to. I’m thinking I might grant you a rematch, how about, I’ll be in Chattanooga on Friday, or Montgomery on Saturday, I’ll be in Birmingham on Sunday. Right back here in one week in Atlanta, but if those don’t fit The Rock’s schedule, he’ll grant him a Title shot, a rematch in three weeks. It’s not Punk’s rematch, he’s granting it. Show up if you dare! Cole says that the Elimination Chamber PPV.

The Rock says that before he leaves, he wants a rematch at Elimination Chamber, he’s got it, all he’ll take in three weeks the ass kicking of a lifetime, you punk ass bitch. If you smelllll… What The Rock is Cookin’! The Rock stares up at Punk on the stage, seething.

Sheamus blocks going through a table leaning on the corner. Sheamus rushes Sandow on the apron and his brogue kick hangs Sheamus up top. Sheamus, somehow comes over the top with a battering ram at Sandow.

Sheamus has a handful of beard, then beats Sandow down in a corner, then a sick clothesline! Sandow reverses into a side Russian leg sweep into his elbow of disdain.

Sheamus up, Sandow on the apron and takes the ten forearms.

In Ring Segment

VKM is in the ring in khakis, a purple plaid blazer, pink shirt and gray tie. He says that everyone knows he loves to have fun. We all love to have fun. The best place to have fun is in Las Vegas. Let’s have some fun together, Paul Heyman, come on down. If you’re scrabbling around looking for Punk, you won’t. He was escorted from the building about 10 minutes ago. Heyman comes out without music. VKM calls for a warm Las Vegas welcome for Paul Heyman. “ECW!” chants in the front row.

Heyman in and offers VKM his hand. VKM asks if he should shake his hand? The fans say no, but he does. VKM hands over his mic and pulls out hand sanitizer! Heyman laughs it off.

VKM asks if Heyman has, or has had The Shield or Maddox under his employ.

Heyman thanks VKM and says the answer is no, he had never had anything to do with Maddox or The Shield.

VKM asks Heyman if he’s ever lied in his life?

Heyman says long time ago, he heard VKM’s father say in the MSG locker room, “Adversity defines a man’s character in his darkest hour.” Heyman says faced with the adversity that he knows where this is going, he’s lied every day of his stinking life because he’s a promoter. They lie to survive tonight to live to tomorrow. Whatever he’s had to do, he’s lied through his teeth, to god and the souls of his parents, he’s lied,lied, lied, but he swears to VKM that he’s not lying now!

VKM says Heyman is an honorable man?

Heyman says he doesn’t know, but he’s trying to become an honorable man, but he can learn from VKM. He’s not a saint, but he wants to be there. If he has to be an honorable man to stay in the WWE, then he will be an honorable man.

VKM says that they need to take a look at Heyman’s honorable face. VKM has the camera right in on Heyman’s face. VKM asks if this is an honorable face? “NO!” Is this an honorable man? “NO!” VKM says he wants to show some footage, then get Heyman’s comments. This was shot a couple weeks ago in northern California.

Heyman with Maddox in a dark tunnel. Heyman demands the camera go off. Heyman says to Maddox that his show is canceled. The camera comes back on as Heyman says Maddox was set up as the ref at HIAC, but he keeps coming back for more, more and more. When they pay The Shield to do something, they do it, but that’s it. They go to The Shield again, and ask them to do something, they do it, and do it better than Maddox has, so they pay them. The Shield walks up behind Maddox, surround him. Maddox begs Heyman, says he’ll leave. Heyman tells him to take the beating like a man, he wanted the experience. Heyman tells him to chalk it up to being a learning experience. The Shield attacks and beats Maddox down.

Back to the ring and Heyman looks like he’s about to barf. “You are busted!” chants at Heyman!

VKM asks, well? It’s a personal performance review.

The fans start singing Heyman out!

Heyman claims it wasn’t him! Heyman turns to the fans and yells, “Excuse me for a moment, my career is on the line!” Heyman says VKM says he knows what it’s like to be falsely accused. That wasn’t me! I have a thick New York Jewish accent, easy to imitate. They’re in Vegas, town of impersonators. Someone’s doing it out of anger and jealousy because of his success with ECW and his success with Punk. Because he let Punk defend…

VKM asks if Heyman is trying to convince himself, or everyone there. Was that Maddox in the video? Was that The Shield? But it wasn’t Heyman?

“No, that was not Paul Heyman!”

VKM smirks. Is Paul Heyman lying? Does Paul Heyman deserve to be fired?

Heyman, off mic, begs VKM not to do this. Please don’t do this to me! All the while the fans are chanting “YES!” “YES!” “YES!”

Mr. Heyman, it would seem I have to wish you well in your future endeavors. In other words, Mr. Heyman, you’re…

Brock Lesnar’s music hits and out he comes. Brock circles the ring, then up on the apron. VKM looks nervous as Brock gets in the ring. Heyman says something to Brock off mic. Brock pushes Heyman to the ropes. Heyman keeps talking. Brock points to the corner and Heyman goes.

Brock steps up to VKM, almost touching. Brock leans his face in and touches noses with VKM. VKM shakes him off, showing his angry face. Brock almost smiles, VKM glares.

VKM says, “If I were you, I wouldn’t do something you’d regret later on.” Brock smiles at this. VKM tells him to think about it. Heyman yells that he has this under control. Brock points to the corner, and Heyman backs off. Brock nods, looks like it’s leaving, then turns and scoops VKM up. Heyman freaks out, yells for Brock to not do it. F5 on VKM, and it was beautifully executed and bumped! Heyman is wailing over what Brock did, calling to God for help and freaking out as the fans chant “ECW!” and RAW fades to black.

    Make me laugh??? Oh Oh Oh let me try!!!! What do Ryback and The Ultimate Warrior have in common? ……….No No No not horrible looking ring gear………No No No not senseless promos……No No No not the fact they both have the dumbest finishers ever……….No No No not the fact that all they care about is money……..Oh wait! Thats exactly what they have in common….hahahaha

    • Gary Robert

      Worst finisher I can think of. You’d think a “power house” type character would have a powerhouse of a finisher.

  • PainOfDemise

    I had a feeling that Bo Dallas was going to be here and face Barrett and beat him. Even though I figured it would happen, still kind of shocking to see.

  • Pluto

    Very good promo from Cena tonight. Making up for last week

    • -|AZ|-

      The promo he cut backstage after the rumble was also good. “Mark your calendars” n all…

    I’m starting to get tired of The Shield and their hit and runs. They need to start actually wrestling instead of doing the same crap over and over.

  • Chris

    “Oh look its The Shield! Obviously they are unaware I am in the ring talking, so I will just stay here and they will go once they realize that I was here first” – Every WWE superstar

    Body Slam Challenge – ADR w/ RVD vs Big Sho.

    Is RVD back in the WWE??!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Timothy-Lowe-Jr/100000559123347 Timothy Lowe Jr

    Gotta love the fans clearly not going crazy Yet the cheers are erupting. Plus was it me or did the rock not get a big reception

    • Pluto

      Was just you

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Timothy-Lowe-Jr/100000559123347 Timothy Lowe Jr

        Cause the fans weren’t going crazy except a few

        • Gary Robert

          CM Punk chants over Rock chants

  • Rayner Chee-bai

    RVD returned?

  • Pluto

    So if Rock isn’t defending the title inside the chamber and just fighting Punk in a regular match does that mean there won’t be a RAW Chamber match? Or will there be and will the winner of that fight for the WWE title also making it a triple threat match?

    • Andy

      I see the RAW chamber being Cena, Sheamus and Ryback vs The Shield in tag chamber. That’d be cool and innotive!

      • Pluto

        Why would they put Cena in the chamber if he already has a title shot from winning the Rumble?

        • thebops

          Because it wouldn’t be for a title or title shot – it’s just Cena, Sheamus, and Ryback against the Shield in the Chamber – as a tag match, not a pod opening periodically match.
          Sometimes I think you don’t even bother to read, you just want to argue.

          • Pluto

            I’m not trying too argue with you. Was just asking a question. Sorry I misread that

          • thebops

            My bad – I’m still bent over the Rumble and you kept telling me I was “crying” – lol

          • Pluto

            LOL Don’t be man. Punk had a great run as champ, historic run. Had too come to an end sometime. People acting like it’s the end of Punk’s carrer or something. Everybody should enjoy the ride too Mania. Lesnar, Rock, HHH, Taker, Y2J will be involved. Cena, Punk, Sheamus, Bryan, Ryback are stil getting pushed very strongly. There is something in it for everybody. You got the attitude era guys back, you got the Indy guys getting pushed (Punk, Bryan, Cesaro, Sheild) and you have the role models (Cena, Ryback) getting pushed. No one should be complaining, enjoy the ride bro

          • thebops

            I agree 100%. I think we all knew (or should have known) how the Rumble and the WWE Championship were going to end. I just didn’t like how weak it made Punk look.
            I would have preferred more of a Cena/Rock match where niether looked weak, but there was a clean winner.

          • Gary Robert

            exactly what I said about being amazed at hoe the end of the match was booked. A People’s Elbow? Was there even a GTS in the match? I don’t remember one? And I remember one Rock Bottom on the outside. Neither finisher led to a potential pin fall which I’m blown away by. No big kick-outs or real suspense etc etc.

          • JJ

            They could still have the pods just treat it like a lethal lockdown match.

          • Razmos

            Elimination tag match, still use the pods and rules i say!!

        • Andy

          to let Punk-Rock end their feud whilst making him look impressive and keeping him active. Simple.

      • http://www.facebook.com/justinneerajlal Justin Lal

        Not a bad idea.

      • http://twitter.com/Avalanchian71 Avalanchian

        I personally love this idea.

      • -|AZ|-

        Sounds different. But is the creative @ WWE really dat creative???

        -|AZ|-

  • Pluto

    PREDICTION: Lesnar is showing up tonight in the McMahon/Heyman segmet. Lesnar takes out McMahon. HHH returns within the next few weeks to challenge Lesnar too a remtach at WM too avenge his father in law. You heard it here first

    • Luke

      Seems very likely..

    • thebops

      You nailed that one…

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/3GELHSGASCJYIWXCMKPUTAJ5HM Win

      You know how many people on this site have been calling for Lesnar vs. Triple H loooong before 2night…Do your research! Your are the opposite of a head of the curve!

      • Pluto

        That wasn’t the point of my PREDICTION. How many knew Lesnar would show up tonight? That’s was the point. Troll harder son

        • Mickey Mouse

          To be fair i think everyone had guessed it, they just didnt want to waste time telling everybody what they already knew!! Get back in ya dog house Pluto before Mickey gives you a spanking!!

    • Gary Robert

      I agree and the snoozefest of another rematch continues

  • Friend-o

    My friend will be doing a best and worst of the week’s WWE shows every weekend from now until Wrestlemania, starting with the Royal Rumble. It’s just getting off its feet and could do with readers/commenters on The Road To Wrestlemania. Check it out at http://www.rtwmrecap.blogspot.com

  • Stephen

    I dnt understand y everybody rather have Y2J as a Heel…I like him better as a face #SoGood

  • Xaq

    Oh how I would love to see Jehrico and DBry fued

  • LML2323

    Congrats to Trish!

  • Pluto

    LOL I called that shit. LESNAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://himunlich.blogspot.com/ unLich

    yes yes yes
    Finally Brock Lesnar return to Raw…..

  • Sujay

    The moment when the rock came out for his victory speech at the end of 2nd hour, i was sure that lesner would return at the end of raw… there was no way they were putting the rock in the middle unless lesner was returning for closing the show

  • Rayner Chee-bai

    Jericho vs Bryan at WrestleMania 29. Book it, Vince!

    • http://www.facebook.com/justinneerajlal Justin Lal

      Bryan is not good enough to be in a WM match with Jericho. Get real! You guys completely overvalue Daniel Bryan.

      • http://www.facebook.com/richardleaf20 Richard Norman Welsh

        I think you haven’t seen Bryan’s matches in the indies he is every bit as good as Jericho if not better

  • http://twitter.com/GardenOfStone10 Matt

    Is it just me or did Punk flip off the audience?

  • HiYellowGuy

    Is it just me or does Bo Dallas have “future endeavored” written all over him?

    • http://www.facebook.com/davedpf Dave Barton

      Not likely to be anytime soon, considering who his daddy is (and he looks nothing like his daddy, btw).

  • Terra Ryzing

    CM Punk, Paul Heyman, The Shield, and Brock Lesnar? That could be one helluva stable

  • 773man

    I’ve gotta stop ignoring the big elephant in the room… JBL is annoying as heck!

  • Gary Robert

    Creative sucks and I’ll continue to say it. Whatever integrity a wrestling business could have, it was lost by giving the championship to a guy who is never around and on top of that, by doing it in such a boring fashion as it was done last night.
    Whoever booked the finish of that match should be fired.
    Whoever gives Vince McMahon fashion advice should be fired.
    Whoever created Ryback’s boring ass finisher should be fired.
    Whoever told Miz that he should use that hairstyle should be fired.
    Royal Rumble was a big yawn as was RAW. Getting very bored with the predictable storytelling. The whole point of storytelling, and I HAVE to assume that there is a large group of guys behind the “creative team” so I don’t understand how lame it can be, is to be UNPREDICTABLE, to make audiences interested and shocked and wanting to tune back in. Not this mush.
    God, I hate Cena’s character.

  • ben

    vince is going to bring back taker to feud with brock and some how punk is going to fit in the rock cena match at wrestlemania making it a triple threat

    • ben

      i wouldnt book that triple threat but i think thats how creative would do it
