By Richard Trionfo on 2013-03-18 23:08:03
We are now less than three weeks away from Wrestlemania, but before we get there, we need to see who will be the Intercontinental Champion. Will it be the guy who was in the movie that a few people saw in the theaters, the guy from the movie that went straight to DVD, or the guy who is a rock star? What will Triple H say in response to Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman’s challenge for Wrestlemania? Now that CM Punk has poked the bear from HELL, what will Undertaker do to get his urn back?

We are in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and your announcers are Jerry ‘What about the Primanti Sisters’ Lawler and Michael ‘How would I look with Troy Polamalu’s hair’ Cole.

John Cena makes his way to the ring and he has something to say.

He says that there must be some Rock fans in the audience tonight. It is loud on both sides. You have twenty days left to pick a side. Since he stands in the middle of a sold out house divided, he has a message for all of the Rock fans. It is the same message he gave to the Rock a few weeks ago.

He says that Rock’s time is up and his time is now. That is a bitter pill to swallow but he says that because all they have is right now. Starting with the Royal Rumble, it has been a tidal wave of momentum. For those who stuck through the hard times and have been by him, he will not guarantee a victory. Cena says that he is ready for Wrestlemania and he points to the sign to prove it.

Darren Young and Titus O’Neil come out and Titus says that Cena is not the only one ready for Wrestlemania because the Prime Time Players are ready for Wrestlemania. Titus says that he is Rufus Pancake.

Cena mentions that we are in Pittsburgh, the home of the Steelers and Penguins. There are some great doctors who deal with multiple personalities and they will help Titus.

Titus says that the only medication that the WWE Universe needs is the Prime Time Players. Darren says that they put the ‘E’ in WWE Entertainment.

Titus and Darren do the Millions of Dollars Dance and Titus hurt his hip.

Cena says that they have something and they are making him smile. Cena says that their timing is a bit off. Cena says that maybe they will get it right after Wrestlemania.

Titus says that the people don’t want to see him at Wrestlemania. They want to see the Prime Time Players.

Titus says that people say that Darren looks like John Cena. Darren should be on the cover of Cocoa Pebbles. Titus says that his gout has flared up and he is a few days from his first Social Security Check and Friday is bingo night. Darren will tear John limb from limb.

Darren says that John will be crying and weeping on the ramp, the loser he is, just like last year’s Wrestlemania.

Cena asks if that is what it is all about. Cena tells Darren he steps in the ring and he will show Darren what it is like to be ready for the main event of Wrestlemania.

Match Number One: John Cena versus Darren Young (with Titus “Pancake Patterson” O’Neil)

Cena with a punch and he sends Darren into the turnbuckles and then he hits a bulldog after an Irish whip. Young goes to the floor and we go to commercial.

We are back and Cena waits for Young to get up for the two flying shoulder tackles and the Blue Thunder Bomb. It is time for the five knuckle shuffle and he hits it and then gets Young on his shoulders for the Attitude Adjustment and Cena points to the sign first and then he gets the three count.

Winner: John Cena

Michael Cole mentions that John Cena is not the only person who is ready for Wrestlemania. The Undertaker returned last week and he will face CM Punk. Undertaker is on Raw tonight.

Michael Cole mentions the tensions between Mark Henry and Ryback. We see what happened when Godzilla faced King Kong in the ring on Smackdown, only to see The Shield attack Ryback. Then Mark Henry tried to send Ryback through the center of the Earth with a series of World’s Strongest Slams.

Ryback is walking in the back and he is ready to be fed something.

We go to commercial.

Match Number Two: Ryback versus David Otunga

Ryback runs Otunga into the corner and then he chops Otunga a few times and then he punches Otunga. Ryback runs into a boot and then he connects with a boot to the head and a kick to Ryback. Ryback with a running body block and then he spins Otunga into position for a power slam. Ryback with a running clothesline and then it is time for the marching muscle buster and the three count.

Winner: David Otunga

Ryback says that him, Randy Orton, and Sheamus are going to tear The Shield apart. As far as the World’s Strongest Man is concerned, they will cross paths again before Wrestlemania. When that time comes, it will be feeding time.

Mark Henry’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Vickie Guerrero and Teddy Long try to stop Mark from doing anything with Ryback. Teddy tells Mark to wait a moment.

Vickie says that Ryback is out of the six man tag match. If Ryback wants to wrestle at Wrestlemania, he will face Mark Henry.

Ryback appears to be in a good mood because he picks up David Otunga and carries him around the ring on his shoulders before hitting the marching muscle buster.

We might have a new match for Wrestlemania, but we have a Contract Signing between Brock Lesnar and Triple H.

Tout your stipulation choices.

Fandango will be debuting tonight . . . okay, probably not, but he will be walking onto the stage one more time.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Fandango now has a golden shower curtain to come through before he dances.

Fandango makes his way down the ramp.

Fandango tells Stretch that it is quite obvious that he is far too stupid to pronounce his name correctly. Maybe they let the beautiful, sensual Canadian slice of heaven Natalya give it a try. She tells Khali to get him.

Fandango says that tonight was the night when you almost got to see the debut of Fandango.

We are back and Damien Sandow has something to say after they silence his music. Henry David Thoreau says rather than love than money than fame, give me truth. He is rolling over in his grave right now with that man in the ring calling himself R Truth. Judging by his appearance and action, the ‘R’ stands for ‘Repugnant’.

You’re Welcome.

Truth says Thoreau was quite a poet and he has some poetry. Your beard is weird and you talk a lot, I’ve got four sweet words for you. You’re gonnna get got.

Match Number Three:R Truth versus Damien Sandow

We go to commercial.

We are back with the Slam of the Week: Kane beating CM Punk due to Undertaker’s chicanery. Then we see CM Punk returning serve and the RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION shown by the announcers.

Undertaker’s gong sounds and the lights go down and he makes his way to the ring.

Taker tells Punk that he sealed his own fate last week when he decided to make this personal. There is no escaping what will happen to him at Wrestlemania. Taker says that he will hurt him, and he will hurt him bad. Punk has one chance to save his soul. Taker says that he wants that urn back.

There is a voice that sounds slightly like Paul Bearer and it is CM Punk playing ventriloquist with the urn. He says that he couldn’t hit the high notes. Paul’s death wasn’t a personal loss, it was a professional loss. At Wrestlemania, if Taker gets counted out or disqualified, it is still a loss.

Punk says that Taker is the best at Wrestlemania. Taker is the best in the world at Wrestlemania, but Taker has never faced Punk before and he is the best in the world 365 days a year. Taker answers to a higher calling and he has powers. Punk says that he is a higher power. Punk says that he will not say that he was born to beat the streak or that it is his destiny.

Punk says that he will endure whatever pain Taker wants to befall on him. Punk says that he will beat the streak and he is the one who will end the undefeated streak at Wrestlemania. Punk says that he is the ‘1’ in ’20-1’. Punk drops the urn and fortunately the top did not come off. Punk tosses the urn in the air some more.

We go to commercial.

We are back and a new name will be added to the Class of 2013.

We take a look back at why CM Punk is a wrestler and not on the Harlem Globetrotters.
