Paul wants to know if they are upset with CM Punk for successfully defending the title against John Cena and Ryback.
Are they mad because they made fun of Jerry Lawler. When CM Punk and him give them a taste of attitude after the people yearn for the Attitude Era, they boo him. They will chant ECW at him, but when they are given the Extreme, they boo him.
The WWE Universe cannot handle the greatness of the WWE Champion when he comes into the ring and makes history by raising the bar so high. This man for whom this celebration is for, stands heads and shoulders above the rest. Not just for today but for all time.
It is time to put a smile on your faces because this is a celebration. A celebration of 365 glorious days of the reign of the current and reigning WWE Champion, the best in the world.
