From the Kansas City, Missouri
Reported on by Kendra Bunyon for Wrestling News World
Tonight the shocking conclusion to Cena vs Ryback. Who endured in the cage last night? Find out in minutes as RAW starts at the top of the hour!
An ambulance is coming into the arena, lights and sirens blaring! Ryback climbs out the back with a new black leather vest that says Ryback Rules on the front in red. He has mic in hand, though they run to still from last night. Now he’s on top of the ambulance. He says last night the official decision for his match with Cena was No Decision. While Cena walked away with the WWE Title, he didn’t walk away, he was carried away. Cut to video of Cena on the stretcher, neck brace on his neck, but got up and refused to go.
Ryback says last night Cena refused to get in an ambulance, but next time he won’t. I’m not on this ambulance to look cool, because I don’t care what you think anymore. I’m here to propose an Ambulance Match at Payback. In an Ambulance Match it doesn’t matter if you can still stand, if your heart is still beating. All that matters is throw the other man in the back of the ambulance, and that man will be Cena. Cena will be taken to a medical facility, where all of you are eventually going. In actuality, most of you will skip the medical facility and head straight for the morgue. Look around at yourselves, pathetic, weak, weak, weak, weak people of society. I have nothing in common with any of you. (Boo) You have no idea what it feels like waking up wanting to be the damn best. You don’t start the day with goals or direction. (Boo) You’re all lost souls of society. Yet you worship Cena. (Pop) You wanna be like Cena. (Pop) Cena is your hero. (Pop) Absolutely pathetic! (Pop) None of you have anything in common with Cena. None of you know what it’s like to bust your ass everyday. You know nothing about nutrition, education, hard work. You have no idea what it takes. I tell you what. At WWE Payback, I take Cena to the medical facility, to the morgue. I take all of you to the morgue with Cena. (Serious heat) There’s only one fact of life and that is, Ryback Rules!

In Ring Segment
Heyman out to a mixed reaction, and all smiles. To the ring as Cole talks about how he will announce his newest client tonight. Heyman says, I get it, I understand. When it’s a Heyman guy who exposes one of your heroes, I’m the one who catches your wrath, gets your boos. So, go ahead, get it out of your system. Boo me all you want. (King does) Tell me, what does it feel like to be powerless. Your boos will never change the historical fact that last night a true Heyman guy, the Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar, defeated Triple H in a Steel Cage Match at Extreme Rules. History won’t record boo/cheer/we hate you Heyman, history will record the fact that Brock emerged victorious, and like I warned you on RAW, Trip will go down in history against my client as a loser. Tonight, while I stand before you, my client is enjoying the spoils of war, and Trip goes home to Mommy. I takes a desperate man to bring a sledge hammer into the ring with Brock. Now that Brock has fulfilled his obligations to WWE, the question remains, what’s Heyman going to talk about now?
It’s time for something new, different, give to the WWE ‘Universe’, from my generosity that moment in time that you set your DVRs and you play back ten years from now. The YouTube clip you look back on and say, that’s the moment history took a left turn (I hope that’s true). Because you’re all here tonight to witness history. Ladies and gentlemen, now’s the time to hit record, because I, Paul Heyman, stand before you this evening and I give to you, the newest Paul Heyman Guy!
Out comes Joe Hennig to his father’s (Curt Hennig) music (Perfection). Heyman is clapping in the ring. Joe, on the bottom of the ramp smiles and yells, I have arrived! Into the ring, they shake, then hug! (Serious heat) They’ve proved me right again. It’s the very same reaction I warned my client he was going to face. It’s the very same reaction you gave in 2002 when I introduced you to the NCAA Division 1 Heavyweight Champion, the man that took care of Triple H last night, Brock Lesnar. (more heat) The very same reaction they gave me in 2006 when in the new ECW, I presented to them the man who would reign for 434 days, as the reigning, defending WWE Champion, CM Punk. I understand how everybody here feels. This man has such legacy, such heritage, such, check out the word, pedigree going for him. Alice In Wonderland upside-down, everything is up, everything is down mentality in the WWE, why isn’t this man a Superstar already?
On man in the stands yells, “Because he sucks!”
It’s all because in the WWE a legacy isn’t something that gives you nepotistic possibilities, it’s an albatross. Sinks you to the bottom of the talent pool. My client doesn’t hide the fact that he has a bloodline that makes him a 3rd generation Superstar! But this man wants to carve out his own niche, make his own legend in the WWE. Which is why we have taken his father, Mr. Perfect’s given name Curt, and we have paid homage to his grandfather the legendary Larry ‘The Ax’ Hennig, and we have bestowed upon this man a new name, a new brand that will forever be known around the WWE ‘Universe’ as Curtis Axel.
The fans hate this.
I guess you weren’t paying attention, I’ll try this again, ladies and gentlemen, Curtis Axel!
Bigger heat from the fans.
Perhaps you could appreciate…
Heyman is cut off by Trip’s music. Heyman looks shocked, then smiles at Trip who comes out, but the lights on him blink out. Back to Heyman, then to Trip and the lights were on. Cole says he’s shocked Trip is there after what Brock did to Trip last night. JBL says he’s shocked Trip is standing. That was one of the most brutal matches I’ve seen my 20 years here. Trip comes to the ring wearing jeans, leather jacket, Trip t-shirt.
Trip says wow, you can really whip up a batch of Kool Aid, cantcha?
Trip turns to Axel and tells him the adults are having a conversation over here junior. Heyman you can put whatever spin you want on last night, but don’t come out and say I’m embarrassed, that I ran with my tail tucked. I’m not embarrassed about a damn thing last night. I went to war with Bradley Lesnar! Your damn right, he beat men, just like I beat him at WrestleMania. Brock beat me last night, but he didn’t just walk away, he limped away from that battle. But, I was sitting in back listening to you run your garbage chute and it donned on me. You know what would make me happy? Solely, because I can, come out here and beat the ever-living crap out of you.
Hey, says Axel stepping up in Trip’s face. I don’t think you understand, the game around here has changed. You wanna talk to him, how about you talk to me first? Axel right in Trip’s face.
Trip bitch slaps Axel to the mat.
You know what? I just changed my mind. First, I’m going to have a match tonight, with you (Axel). And when I get done kicking your ass, I’m going to kick yours (Heyman).
Trip leaves the ring, and as he walks up the ramp Axel is to his feet, and bows up to no one standing there. Heyman in Axel’s ears as he fumes.

I appreciate everyone sticking with me when I get a bit behind. I pride myself in not just getting out the moves and the words, but the feel and the flavor of each segment. Every commercial break I post, and while I might get a bit behind, you know when you read my RAW Results you’re getting something you can’t get anywhere else because of my specific view of the wrestling industry. I am the only female doing this, and have written RAW Results for ten years now. I know I will always have my detractors, and much of the reason behind it is because people don’t like my view of the industry and what I say in my blogs, not what I write in my RAW Results. The saddest part about this is that I catch flack for being a female writing about wrestling, therefore I don’t know what I’m talking about. I thought we got past that in the 1980’s when Raye-Stout fought to be able to report from the NFL locker room, but some days it feels that it was all for naught. Yes, I tell you what people are wearing, but that’s the fiction writer in me trying to give the over all look and feel of what’s going on in the segment, in the match. I have to thank everyone who has stuck by me all these years, because I put every little bit I can into this every week, no matter what’s going on, and am as proud of the work I do each week. I know I can’t please everyone every week, but I think I’ve more than proven myself.
