WWE RAW 1006 REPORT: THE HUG HEARD ROUND THE WORLD; CM PUNK'S DAY OFF; MORE PEOPLE WALKING OUT ON AJ; CM PUNK HAS A DRIVER . . . AND HE IS EXTREME

By Richard Trionfo on 2012-09-03 23:05:40
This week, we begin with a look back at what happened between Jerry Lawler and CM Punk over the last few weeks.

We are live from Chicago, Illinois and your announcer is Michael ‘I am the A.J. Pierzynski of WWE’ Cole.

Michael Cole talks about the fact that we only have one announcer tonight. It is because Jerry Lawler was brawling with CM Punk in the back before the show started. Lawler and Punk had to be separated by Punk got in a few shots on Lawler and he does not appear to be in any condition to do commentary.

The World Champion Sheamus makes his way to the ring. Sheamus comments on what we have seen so far. He says that the party never ends when he is in Chicago. He says the party will end for one man . . . Alberto Del Rio. At Night of Champions . . .

CM Punk’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Punk tells Sheamus not to come out and try to talk to his hometown. Punk says that the people cannot relate to Sheamus but they can relate to him because he is from Chicago. Punk wants to know how everyone is doing.

Punk says that we saw him beating up Jerry Lawler earlier, but the cameras did not pick up Lawler attacking him. You better not miss when you go after the King of Chicago. He says that it is not bad enough that Jerry Lawler had to attack him from behind, but he has been attacking his integrity.

Last week, he took it upon himself to teach Jerry a lesson in the steel cage, until the white knight stuck his nose where it did not belong. That white knight is named John Cena. Punk says that what he did to Jerry Lawler because Lawler deserved it after he said that Punk turned his back on the WWE Universe.

Punk wants to know if he turned his back on the WWE Universe. Punk tells John Cena that he helped Jerry Lawler and that means that you agree with Jerry Lawler. If you agree with Jerry Lawler, you do not agree with him. If you do not agree with CM Punk, you are disrespecting him.

If you disrespect the WWE Champion for 288 days, then John Cena is the one who has turned his back on the WWE Universe.

Sheamus finally jumps in after listening to Punk for about five minutes. He says that he knows that we are in Punk’s home town. Sheamus says that Punk is talking about disrespect, but Punk can come out here and say that he is the best in the world, Sheamus reminds Punk that he is the World Champion. Punk interrupted him. That is the crime that the Rock committed when Rock interrupted him.

Sheamus says that the Rock had the guts to step into the ring, unlike Punk who is on the stage. Sheamus suggests that Punk come on down.

Punk says that he already beat up one goon. He has nothing to do with Sheamus. Being the World Champion makes him at best, the second best in the world. There is a pecking order and Sheamus is behind him so he tells Sheamus to shut his mouth.

Sheamus wants Punk to turn around because he is talking out of his arse so Sheamus figures that he should be looking at it.

CM Punk is now interrupted by the Raw General Manager AJ Lee and she tells Punk and Sheamus that she has an announcement. In one match, Alberto Del Rio will face John Cena. In the other main event, we will have Champion versus Champion with CM Punk facing Sheamus.

AJ skips around the ring and back up the ramp to the back.
