WWE RAW REPORT: MORE MATCHES FOR THE PPV; PUNK AND HEYMAN UP THE VERBAL ANTE; LOVE IS A BATTLEGROUND

By Richard Trionfo on 2013-09-30 23:04:42
We are in Biloxi Mississippi and your announcers are Jerry ‘I have a Museum in this state’ Lawler, Michael ‘If you aren’t watching this, watch baseball’ Cole, and John ‘Did you see me on NXT’ Layfield.

CM Punk makes his way to the ring. Before he speaks, we see footage from last week when Paul Heyman suckered CM Punk into an attack by Ryback and Curtis Axel.

Punk says that there are a lot of people who say that this show thrives on unpredictability and he is as unpredictable as they come. He does not know what he will say or do at times. Sometimes predictability works. He was in his home town and he was beaten up. It was predictable that Paul Heyman would tell the people in Chicago about what he did to Punk.

It was also predictable that Punk would go after Paul for what he said. Punk says that it was predictable that he would get jumped by Ryback and Curtis Axel. That is okay. He is okay with predictability because this story will end when he gets his hands on Curtis Axel and he puts him to sleep. It gets wrapped up when he gets his hands on Ryback and he shows him what happens to bullies. This story ends when he gets his hands on Paul Heyman and he realizes that there is no one to come and save him.

Punk tells the people to make sure that the world knows if they think Ryback sucks. The story with Paul Heyman could end on Sunday when he gets his hands on Ryback. It could end next week on Raw. It could end right here and right now, on the USA Network.

Punk says that he has been in a fighting mood for months. He does not care who he has to fight. Eventually he will get his hands on Paul Heyman. The record books might say that Paul Heyman pinned him in the ring, but everyone will know that he will put Heyman out of his miseries.

Brad Maddox comes out and he tells Punk to take it easy.

Punk wants to know why Brad doesn’t get music.

Brad says that he knows what it feels to fight like a man. He knows that Punk was embarrassed last week and Punk wants to make sure that the people forget about that. Punk will not get hands on Paul or Ryback right now because that is not what is best for business. Punk will be getting his shot at revenge at Battleground.

Brad reminds Punk that he is the general manager of Raw so he has the power to give Punk a match . . . if he would like one.

Punk tells Brad that he is looking for an outlet for his aggression. Brad can either . . .

Big E Langston’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Langston tells Punk that if he wants aggression, he is Punk’s man. Langston attacks Punk with the mic and he sends Punk into the turnbuckles and connects with a series of shoulders. Langston sends Punk into the corner again but Punk moves when Langston goes for a shoulder in the corner and he hits the post.
