WWE RAW REPORT: PIPER'S PIT; ORTON VERSUS BATISTA; DID THE WWE UNIVERSE SAY 'NO' TO THE 'YES MOVEMENT'?; AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2014-03-31 23:02:42
We are in Washington, D.C. and your announcers are John ‘Executive’ Layfield, Michael ‘Legislative’ Cole, and Jerry ‘Judicial’ Lawler.

We begin with the Undertaker’s gong and the blue lighting in the arena. Undertaker makes his way into the arena and he walks to the ring.

He says that twenty-one men have stepped up and twenty-one men have been set down. He did not claim to be better than his victims, but at the Showcase of the Immortals he will go further than anyone else. That is why the streak stays alive. He is sure that Brock Lesnar is thinking of how to break the streak.

Brock should be thinking about what is going to happen when he takes Brock into the deep water when he can no longer touch the bottom, what are you going to do Brock? Are you going to try to grab Taker and bring him down with him or is Brock going to turn around and swim to shore.

Every opponent of his has made that decision and they have been in the same situation that Brock will be on Sunday. They tried to swim back to shore and not one have made it yet. He knows that Brock is very dangerous and there are many who think that his time will come and it is inevitable that the streak will be broken.

There are many more who believe in three things. Three things that cannot be beaten. Death . . . taxes . . . and the streak. At Wrestlemania, Brock Lesnar will rest . . . in . . . peace.

Brock Lesnar’s music plays during Taker’s rest in peace and he makes his way to the stage with Paul Heyman.

Paul says that he does not mean any disrespect. His client means disrespect but he does not mean any disrespect. This is not a match that Brock Lesnar has to win. This is a match that the Undertaker must not lose. You can beat on his client with a demon’s fury until Hell freezes over, but all it takes is one moment and one F-5. Three seconds later, the vaunted undefeated streak is over.

The most historic Wrestlemania Moment since Hulk Hogan defeated Andre The Giant will take place on Sunday when his client BROCK LESNAR defeats the Undertaker. Paul says that is not a prediction, but a spoiler.

Brock makes his way to the ring with Paul by his side and the Undertaker unbuttons his jacket and takes it off. Brock and Paul stop half way to the ring and then Brock starts to back up and he points at Taker and the Wrestlemania sign.

Brock decides to go to the ring but he stops at the apron. Brock thinks about leaping onto the apron but he backs up and he chortles at Taker. Brock goes around one side of the ring while Paul goes around the other side. They walk around the ring and Heyman tries to get a chair into the ring.

Taker sees Heyman and Brock attacks from behind. They exchange punches and Brock with a clothesline. Brock gets Taker up and hits an F-5.

We go to commercial.

We are back and it is time to talk about the situation between John Cena and the Wyatt Family.

We see footage from the match between John Cena and Luke Harper on last week’s Raw and the end of the match when Cena was tied in the ropes wearing the lamb mask.

Luke is whistling and Bray says that it laughs and breathes. The problem becomes far too easy when you turn a blind eye to the landfills. It is hard to continue to whisper into their ears to listen and believe you. Do we have your attention? He was told that he was born to lead. He would be the one to take everything that they love and burn it to the ground.

She told him he would change the world. They are going to cry for you John. They will not understand at first. They will forget you and then they will see you the same way that he does. There is a monster, John. He’s got the whole world in his hands.

In case you missed Total Divas, we see what happened between Natalya and Summer Rae at the end of the show.

Triple H, the WWE COO, and Stephanie McMahon, one of the principal owners of the WWE, walk in the back as we go to commercial.

We are back and Triple H and Stephanie McMahon make their way to the ring.

Stephanie says that her and her husband are benevolent people. They will let everyone say goodbye to the Yes Movement before her husband destroys Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania.

Hunter says that he doesn’t know how much they are going to care. This generation has no loyalty. They don’t care. They just want to be part of something. They don’t want to do anything that requires work or effort. They have a flavor of the day and then they move on.

One year ago at this time, they talk about how Fandango was so big after Wrestlemania. Remember how big that was? Then you just threw it away and didn’t give a crap. Hunter says that kid is a quality talent. A solid B+ or A player.

Stephanie asks the people if they want to see Daniel Bryan tonight. Stephanie starts doing the Yes and they follow. She says that she was right that she could get them to do the Yes. She says that you can chant all you want, but Daniel Bryan will not be here tonight. That is what is best for business.

What is best for Daniel Bryan is to go to New Orleans early to rest up.

Hunter says the Yes Movement is just a myth and a fallacy. You want to believe that Daniel Bryan is an A+ player, but he isn’t. No matter how many times you come out and chant, it isn’t true.

Hunter says that it is like all of the people who think that he has all of his power and success because he married well. He will be the first to admit that he married spectacularly. The reason he has what he has is because of his dominance in the ring. It is why he got to the top and the reason he stayed at the top.

It didn’t matter what flavor of the week you threw at him, the same thing happened over and over again.

If you don’t believe Hunter, here is a video to prove it, narrated by Stephanie McMahon.

Hunter says that those guys are not great, but they were just players in the game and I AM THE GAME. He is The Game more than ever. Hunter says that not only will he beat Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania and stop the Yes Movement, he will step in the ring with Randy Orton and Batista and show that he is the most powerful man in the WWE. He will walk out of Wrestlemania as the COO of this company and the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Batista’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring in a Patrick Ewing Georgetown jersey.

He says that he loves the Say Goodbye to the Yes Movement video, but he noticed that Batista wasn’t in the video because Hunter never beat him.

Hunter says that he has heard Batista say the same thing already. He seems to focus on that. He asks Batista if he should be getting ready for his match.

Batista asks Hunter if he should be worried about his match on Sunday against Daniel Bryan. Then he says that he realized that Hunter is the brains of the operation and Stephanie is the brawn.

Randy Orton comes out and he says that if Stephanie is going to slap the taste out of Batista’s mouth, he wants to get a closer look. He tells Stephanie to not do anything because he wants to enjoy his match.

He says that he likes the idea of a Triple Threat Match because it is what is best for business. He knows that Hunter will beat Daniel Bryan and he looks forward to defending his title against Hunter on the biggest stage of them all. He asks Hunter to reconsider not being in the match.

Hunter says that no amount of ass kissing will get him out of the match. Orton’s reign as Champion ends soon, unless Randy can find a way to become the Viper again. He means THE VIPER. If Randy is THE VIPER he doesn’t know if he can beat that guy. Hunter reminds Orton that he has a match against Batista tonight and that match is no disqualification.
