Pre-RAW Commercial Segment -
Cole talks up VKM apearing on RAW to deliver his State of the WWE Address, and as Cena stated on Twitter, he will be on RAW live!
In Ring Segment
Cena out with thin lines of that medicinal medical tape (saw a lot of it on athletes at the Olympics) down Cena's right arm. Cena to the ring in black and pink, all smiles for the fans who both love him and for those who hate him. Much heat for Cena as his music ends. He says he missed the fans, did they miss him? He was expecting a mixed response, and there it is. One week off felt like a year, but it's great to be back. It's only being outside the WWE does he see what's going on. The TTC have anger issues, Team Hell No! A goat and a demon. Then there's Cesaro who has huge areolas. The Divas are out of control, and AJ is out of her mind, but she hasn't lost her charm. He asks her on a date. Get in touch, or throw it at his face. Cena makes a face, then tells AJ they can go to In N Out for a burger, or a cheeseburger, or even a double double. (I had my first In N Out burger this past week.)
And tonight there's VKM with his State of the WWE Address and Shwarzenneger on Twitter! As loud as he is, he doesn't have a voice. As loud as that place is... he waits for the reaction that has the place stomping their feet to make a strange noise on TV. He says they don't have a voice either. Who stole the voice of the WWE? Punk. Once the voice of the voiceless is now the voice of the selfish. "CM Punk!" chants. Everyday he holds the Title he garners respect. They don't pick who he faces at HIAC, Punk does. What does the length of his reign mean if no one watches. Punk vs Cena at HIAC could be a moment. They have a vocal and loud audience making him feel great to be back. He doesn't know if Punk can be swayed, but they can try. He will go to the cell with one arm, no arm, he will go! People don't turn away because he's a Paul Heyman guy, but because he's not a man. Cement his legacy against Cena at HIAC!
Ryback vs Primo & Epico w/ Rosa
Cena leaves the ring, but as he hits the ramp 'Feed me more!' comes on. Ryback heads to the ring, passes Cena on his way to the ring. Video of Punk embarrassing JR last week, and JR leaving the ring, but then Ryback came out and brought JR back to the ring. Ryback stood in front of JR and stared down Punk. Punk left the ring. Primo and Epico to the ring with Rosa.
Epico ducks Ryback, Primo eats a back elbow. Epico slammed, then Primo slammed. Primo slammed down again and Epico attacks from behind. "Goldberg!" chants start as the Colons beat down on Ryback on the mat. Primo flips Epico onto Ryback. Primo pins, is thrown off, then the same to Epico. Low drop kicks to Ryback. "Feed me more!" chants, but none of the fans seem to be making the chants.
Ryback with an atomic drop, then clotheslines on Primo ad Epico. Ryback calls for the finish. He lines up the cousins, gets them both up (they both helped him), he stomps and slams them down. Ryback stacks them and pins for three.
Winner – Ryback ( 2:32)
Video recap as JR and JBL completely freak out over how powerful Ryback is. "Feed me more!" chants, but I still don't think it's the fans in California chanting.
In Ring Segment
The Funkadactyls out in silver, Funkasaurus comes out in white and black. JBL calls the girls the Funkadelics. They pick on him being from the wrong century. R-Truth chases Little Jimmy into the ring and grabs him by the collar. R-Truth says he's sorry, they can fight any time, Little Jimmy is going through some changes. Changes? Puberty! Little Jimmy wants to dance. The Dactyls are up for it, so they call for the music and all dance in the ring with Little Jimmy. R-Truth and Funkasaurus sell Little Jimmy really well.
VKM stops them and tells them to dance up the ramp, it's time for his State of the WWE Address! They dance their way up the ramp and out.
State of the WWE Address
Justin announces Vince McMahon to the ring. He says the state of the WWE. We saw two grown men out here with the Funadactyls, dancing with an invisible friend. And the WWE has leprechauns, goat faces vegans, red faced monsters. You have pathos, humor and everything. What they have is actions. The best against the best!
Cult of Personality... Punk comes out with Heyman in tow. Of course Heyman has the strap held high as JR and JBL argue about Punk and all he's done lately. Punk has buzzed his hair down again ad circles VKM. VKM tells him he's wearing an ugly t-shirt. VKM isn't happy about this disrespect. Punk says disrespect is VKM talking about what the fans want to see, while Punk stays backstage. The best against the best and Punk's name wasn't mentioned. It was a shot against Punk not facing Cena at HIAC. It was the GM VKM assigned who said Punk could pick his opponent. Cena couldn't get it done in Boston, and the fans disrespect him. The fans still boo him! And the ironic ones who chant his name, he doesn't need them. They all disrespect Punk, does Punk respect him?
VKM respects him for his Title reign. He doesn't respect him being a Heyman guy. VKM's not a Punk guy.
Punk knows that and glad VKM has the grapefruits to say that in front of the world. VKM should be a Punk guy! He's the best in the world, the Champ. A year ago he was a spoke on the wheel, now he is the wheel. He's the best VKM has now and VKM disrespect. Everyone should be on their knees appreciating him. JR Appreciation Night? Where's Punk Appreciation Night? Maybe if Punk doesn't get the respect he deserves, he'll hop the fence and quit. This time he won't come back.
VKM says that Punk says he's the reason the WWE is doing so well?
He's the one paying for the jet, putting fuel in it? Who makes the money, who makes this a billion dollar corp? It's not VKM!
VKM says it's not him, it's not Punk, it's the fans! He listens to the fans on the street, Twitter and Tout. They all say someone needs to shut Punk's mouth. Punk says he's one of the greats? How dare he? He's not Andre, HBK, Trip, Austin!
Punk says how dare him? He's nothing like Austin. He made it to the top through hard work, perseverance and fighting. Austin took short cuts and avoiding fights. What made Austin big was beating up an inept and clueless millionaire. Now he's more clueless, more inept and a senior citizen? Up in VKM's face, he asks if he's mad, under VKM's skin? Now he knows how Punk feels when he gets treated the way he is. It's a slap in the face the way VKM treats him and has been slapping Punk in the face for years! Punk slaps VKM to the mat. "And now that's a slap in your face."
Punk backs up the ramp laughing. VKM says he wants to fire Punk. He'll fire Punk if he doesn't meet VKM in the ring tonight. Heyman tells Punk not to do it! VKM says he'll teach Punk something about respect. Heyman is against this, but Punk says they have VKM where they want him. Trust Punk, everything's going to be just fine.
Recap of Punk slapping VKM to the mat. Then VKM wanted to fire Punk, and would if Punk doesn't face VKM in the ring. Heyman doesn't like this idea. Punk blew VKM a kiss. JBL is on announce thrilled about this big gift they just gave us. Cole talks about Arnold Shwarzenneger on Twitter tonight. He will be back to see Punk versus VKM!

Heyman says he proves he's the best in the world every night. This isn't no win, this is no lose! Punk says he's not the VKM he was, he'll put VKM on the mat and annihilate him. Then VKM will spend every moment making their lives miserable. Punk says he'll find a way to win, Heyman needs to not worry about it.
