He enters the ring which is strung with white ropes. rtime=now is on the back of the shirt. His music ends and there's a lot of heat, but some pop for Cena. He stands in the center of the ring smiling as the heat grows and the 'Cena sucks!' chants filter through. Cena says it should be every WWE Superstars dream to be in the main event and win at WrestleMania. When you win the main event at WrestleMania you get everything that goes along with it – the adulation.
Okay, I'm going to stop you there, we've known each other for ten years now.
"Cean sucks!" chants and lots of heat.
I may be going out on a limb tonight, but you guys seem angry.
Maybe a little bit more than angry.
I'm upset too. WrestleMania is over, I get it, that's why you're upset. WWE isn't like Christmas, this is the Monday Night RAW. It don't matter how you feel about me, everyone sitting here...
"BORING!" chants fill the arena.
Amazingly enough, every RAW after every WrestleMania is more than that, we thought it was done, but back comes Brock to whip my ass!
And hell, I'm feeling pretty good tonight. We've got a very volatile crowd, I might do some sort of Championship dance tonight. It might have a little shake – as he does a silly jig.
It might have a little kick?
"NO!" "NO!" "NO!"
No kick either? I got it, how about a little heel turn. See what I'm talking about! Now we can go on to RAW. A blond HOFer once told me – to be the man, you've got to beat the man! Wooo! Wooo! And last night at WrestleMania two titans clashed, even The Rock got hurt, but out of that, a Champion rose.
So I proudly say to you, the Champ is here!
Chants I can't hear.
Cena says this is what he wanted for a WrestleMania main event celebration. This is my post WrestleMania celebration. I'm not going to rest up and play with balloons, I'm defending this tonight. We're starting with a WWE Championship. I don't know who the #1 contender is. I don't care if it's Ziggler, Orton, Punk, we're going to have a fight...
Henry's music hits and out he comes to Cena who looks really nervous all of a sudden.
Henry slowly into the ring and says, what's up Champ. The problem with coming out and asking for trouble is trouble might just find you. You won your match last night at WrestleMania.
"Sexual chocolate!" chants.
Cena acts confused by this. It's a raucous crowd, they want to have sex with chocolate.
Henry tells him not to pay attention to them. I destroyed Ryback last night, and with all this talk, I think you and me need to have some action.
"Feed me more!"
Cena says, first they want to have sex with chocolate, then they want to eat some more. Mr. World's Strongest Man, let me introduce myself, John Cena, WWE Champ.
You're right, I can see that look and I'm afraid. I'm afraid to tell you have the breath of a thousand asses. You want a fight, you got one, for the WWE Championship!
Booker T out and says he will not have him making WWE Championship matches. It ain't going down like that. The deal is The Rock is entitled to a rematch.
Cena says, once in a lifetime, the best out of three?
The Rock is the #1 contender for the WWE Championship.
Cena says he agrees, he beat The Rock last night.
Booker T said The Rock was injured, so he won't be here tonight. But Henry...
Henry wants a shot? Then he has to earn it. Beat Cena in the ring tonight, and you will get your shot, but only if you beat Cena.
Henry steps up, but Booker T puts a hand out. Henry tells Booker T to take his hand off him. Then to Cena that he's full of jokes, but I'm not laughing. All those joke will get you is ending in the hall of pain. Bring your a-game!
