WWE RAW REPORT: DID THE YES MOVEMENT STOP TONIGHT?; TAG TITLE MATCH; NEW HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE; SHIELD/WYATTS PART 2; ALLIANCES FALL APART?

By Richard Trionfo on 2014-03-03 19:16:11
We are in Chicago, Illinois and your announcers are Michael ‘Snakes on a Plane’ Cole, John ‘Passenger 57’ Layfield, and Jerry ‘Airport ‘77’ Lawler.

CM Punk’s music plays and . . . Paul Heyman comes out to the stage and then the ring.

Paul says that he believes that he deserves louder than that. Paul sits in the center of the ring to either pay tribute to Punk’s pipe bomb promos or because he is tired. Paul says that he came here tonight to tell the story of a Paul Heyman Guy. A Paul Heyman Guy that was never truly wanted in WWE.

A Paul Heyman Guy that ‘they’ thought was too small to main event Wrestlemania. A Paul Heyman Guy who didn’t have the right corporate look. A Paul Heyman Guy with too many tattoos. A Paul Heyman Guy who would rebel against Authority. One they did not want since Day One and one they do not want now.

Paul says that he came here to tell the story of a Paul Heyman Guy that had the balls to say what nobody else had the balls to say. He came here tonight to tell you about a Paul Heyman Guy who was born in, raised in, and still lives in . . . Chicago.

Paul introduces himself and this his Pipe Bomb about CM Punk. . . who is not here this evening.

Paul says that the biggest part of his pipe bomb. Paul says that he won’t disagree with the people. He is also disappointed that we will not see CM Punk perform in the ring tonight. If CM Punk was here tonight, he would be doing what he always claimed to do. He would be showing his detractors wrong and proving that he is the Best in the World.

Paul asks why isn’t CM Punk here tonight? Why won’t people talk about CM Punk any more? There is a finger to point and someone to blame. There is someone to hold accountable why CM Punk just wouldn’t put up with it any more. There comes a time when you have to risk your own job security to point the finger at the person who deserves the blame. Paul points the finger at each and every single one of you.

You can boo him all you want, but the truth hurts . . . doesn’t it. Paul says that this is why he finds it easier to lie because it is easier to take. The truth stings, doesn’t it. When CM Punk was with him, CM Punk was the longest reigning champion of the last 25 years. He gave Punk the bosom from which Punk’s soul could be nourished. Then the people took Punk away from him. The people made CM Punk their hero. They would give CM Punk their love, respect, attention, and affirmation.

How far did it get you? You didn’t just take CM Punk away from him, you took CM Punk away from yourselves. Paul blames someone else as well. Paul blames The Undertaker. This entire downward spiral started when they could not end the Streak at Wrestlemania. Paul says that he wants revenge.

How do you get revenge against the Undertaker? How do you kill what is already dead? He wants to take the streak away from the Undertaker. There is only one man on the face of the planet who can do it. He wants the streak beaten and conquered. There is only one man who can conquer that streak and he is Paul’s best friend in the world. He is the conqueror and Beast Incarnate . . . BROCK LESNAR

Brock comes to the stage and he does the Brock Bounce before making his way to the ring.

Paul says that before they address what happened last week, he wants to show everyone what the Undertaker is capable of.

Brock takes the mic and he does not appear to be in a good mood. Brock says that unlike other people, he does not make claims that he cannot back up. The Undertaker attacked him because Brock believes that Undertaker is scared to death of him. There have been many of foe who have tried to break the streak and all have failed. Shawn Michaels, Triple H, and even CM Punk. They are failures.

At Wrestlemania XXX, the streak will get conquered by him . . . BROCK Lesnar

As Brock leaves the ring, Mark Henry’s music plays and he comes out to the stage and he wants a piece of Brock.

Brock moves out of the way but then he comes off the steps but Henry with a forearm to the face. Henry with forearms to the back but Brock sends Henry into the ring steps. Brock takes the ring steps and he hits Henry in the head with them and then he throws the steps into the ring.

Brock adjusts the announce table and then he tells Mark he picked the wrong day. Brock gets Henry on his shoulders for an F-5 through the announce table.

Paul raises Brock’s hand.
