JBL – I want to get rid of 240lbs of unwanted fat. (Cole)

"CM Punk!"

Punk – I'm fired up tonight, fired up to be in Richmond. The last RAW of 2013, and I'm excited. 2013 showed of good stuff happened to Punk, lot of bad stuff as well. It happens to everyone, but we get up and go to work with a smile on our face, don't we? Sometimes I don't have a smile on my face, but that's neither here nor there. I started the year as the longest reigning Champ of the past 25 years. I went one on one with The Great One, toe to toe with Taker at WrestleMania. I made some friends in 2013, lost some friends in 2013. beat one of them to within an inch of his life – cough, cough – Paul Heyman. I don't think I could claim 2013 was Punk's year. The goal is to be bigger and greater than the year before, and I don't know that 2013 was the year of Punk. Take a look at the landscape of the WWE, and there's three guys, and it was their year, and I'm talking about The Shield. (heat) Let's face facts – Ambrose the US Champ, Rollins and Reigns, former TTCs. I want to end this year on a good foot, iron sharpens iron, so when our paths cross tonight, and we know they will...

The Shield's music hits and Punk smiles. The Shield through the stands to the ring. They all get right into the ring.

Ambrose – Finish your thought Punk. Finish your thought. (They slowly advance on Punk, Ambrose leading, Punk backing into a corner.) You better give us a good reason for not ending 2013 by ending you right now.

"CM Punk!"

Punk – Cool down, look, the three of you can beat any one man, we've established that in the past 365. I want to fight the best, one on one. Out of the three of you, one of you is the best.

Ambrose – You want to do it again, let's do it right now. This time I'll take a piece of you before I leave this right. Let's do this!

Punk – Ambrose, that's funny, but I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to Rollins and Reigns, I've already beaten you a couple times. It wasn't easy, but I did it.

Ambrose – You think I'm a joke?

Punk – I don't think you're a joke.

Ambrose – You think I'm a joke? You can't talk to me that way! (Rollins and Reigns hold Ambrose back.

Punk – No, I just think you're the weak link, and I want to know who the strong one of The Shield is! Roman Reigns! Roman Reigns! Roman Reigns! Look at me when I'm talking to you! Is it you, are you #1, are you the man?

Rollins – You want to know who the best is? You're looking at him! I'll fight you tonight! Let's do this.

Punk – It's you? All I ever hear about is Roman Reigns.

Rollins and Reigns argue off mic about who's going to take down Punk tonight and who the best in the team is. "Roman Reigns!" chants.

Bad News Barrett and his podium raises up from below, to the right of the stage.

Barrett – Could we have some decorum please. Booker, we're not going to end the year with a spinneroonie, because the end of the year is about realizing dreams. Well, I'm afraid I've got some bad news. 2014 isn't suddenly going to bring us the end of government corruption and natural disasters, no. If anything, it will bring us one step closer to the apocalypse! ("What?") (Bangs the heck out of his gavel.) (heat) Let's face some facts here, you will continue to stab each other in the back for more money to say you have a bigger flat screen than your neighbors. Then you lot will continue to poison the environment, and hold your grubby hands out for donations when Mother Nature fights back and takes all your homes away from you! Everybody's going to continue the laziest trends, rather than acknowledge the poverty, debt and destruction that surrounds us all! While this all goes on, Bad News Barrett will be right here to remind everybody all about it. ("What?") Happy New Year everybody!

In Ring Segment

Trip to the ring.

Trip – For The Authority was an epic year, but I guarantee that 2014 will be something you've never seen before. With that, help me welcome this man back to the WWE.

Brock's music hits and out he comes, Heyman in tow. Trip shakes Heyman hand, then hands him the mic. Trip over to Brock, extends his hand. Brock doesn't want to shake, but Heyman nods, and his lips can be read, he said, "He's the guy who signs the checks." Trip smiles, nods and leaves to "Boring!" chants.

Heyman – Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman. As you can clearly see, The Beast is back. Now, in this age of transparency, my client has authorized me to inform you of his mission statement here in the WWE. My client, Brock Lesnar is not here to settle old scores. Brock has no old scores. You fight Brock Lesnar, you lose to Brock Lesnar, Brock Lesnar forgets about you. Nor is Brock Lesnar here as an instrument of revenge to those who did wrong to me, Paul Heyman. I have a forgiving heart, I put those beating in my past, because I'm a bigger man than any on of you. This isn't about me, this is about my client, Brock Lesnar. Here it is, why is Brock Lesnar back in the WWE. Here's what's best for business. My client, Brock Lesnar, hereby declares his desire to be the WWE WHC. With that means for Cena and Orton is that who ever emerges from their match as the WWE WHC, the winner is ultimately t loser, because the Champion will then have to face the self declared #1 contender, Brock Lesnar.

Brock (with Heyman's arm around him) – See, I don't really care if it's Orton or Cena, (Brock steps well away from Heyman) as far as I'm concerned there ain't nobody in this building, or this company that can stop me, Brock Lesnar. I don't have to win a Royal Rumble Match to be deserving enough to be, for a Championship match. I don't have to stand in some mysterious line for a Title shot, as far as I'm concerned, that line starts right here, behind me. That's right, and I dare anybody, I dare anybody to come down here to do something about that.

Heyman – We might enough say goodnight right now, as there's no that's man enough to take anyone up on Brock's dare. Brock's life is like a t-shirt – Eat, Sleep, Conquer, Repeat! What Brock Lesnar wants, Brock Lesnar takes. What's for the taking is the WWE WHC, and it will be taken by the man who will challenge the winner between Cena and Orton, The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar.

Henry's music and out he comes to the stage. He paces on the stage, then removes his shirt. More pacing, then Henry heads to the ring. Henry up and climbing in when Brock attacks with a knee. Brock out and takes an elbow to the gut. Brock tossed over the barricaded and out. Henry over, but Brock spears Henry back through the barricade. Brock is standing, Henry still down.
