WWE Monday Night Raw- 04 February 2013
Ring Announcer: Your winner and Still WWE Champion; CM Punk
Punk: In two weeks time the Elimination Chamber match will be for the right to face me at Wrestlemania.
*If Ya Smeeeellllllllll*
Punk: What are you doing here? Perhaps you don’t recall. You lost. I. Beat. You. Can you remember that Rocky? Or did my GTS give you memory loss?
Rock: No you’re right Punk. You did beat me last night. The Rock lost last night. But The Rock didn’t just pack his bags and leave. Oh no. The Rock realized that if he leaves, the WWE will be stuck with The Shield running rampant all over the company, attacking everyone in sight. And if The Rock leaves the WWE would be stuck with CM Punk as Champion. And The Rock can’t just abandon his People like that. So The Rock goes to Vince McMahon. And The Rock pitches Vince McMahon and idea.
Rock: And because of that CM Punk... You are looking at the new... General Manager of Monday Night Raw!
Punk: You can’t do that-
Rock: -CM Punk... know your role and SHUT YOUR MOUTH! You will be in action at the Elimination Chamber. And you will be defending that title around your waist. And it will be inside The Elimination Chamber itself! Against these five men... The Intercontinental Champion, Kofi Kingston, The Miz, Rey Mysterio, Ryback and JOHN CENA!!!
Rock: But that is... if you make it to Elimination Chamber. Because you see CM Punk, next week on Raw, to mark The Rock’s first full night in charge... you will compete against Ryback, inside a steel cage... for the WWE Title!
Rock: Oh and one more thing Punk, I have something for you, a gift, for our future business relationship...

Commentators: Hello everyone and welcome to Monday Night Raw! What a show we have for you tonight! CM Punk has been WWE Champion for four hundred and forty two days, but is in serious danger of losing that title, when he faces Ryback within the confines of a steel cage, which you can see hanging above the ring!
Commentators: But that is not all! Tonight, Triple H addresses the WWE Universe in regard to Brock Lesnar! What will the game say about the man he brawled with at the Royal Rumble?
**My Time is now! **
John Cena’s music hits and the Cenation leader comes out to the ring for his show opening match.
Match 1: Rey Mysterio vs John Cena
Two of the challengers for the WWE Championship in thirteen days time square off here to open the show.
Cena takes control of the match early, hitting Mysterio with a series of shoulder blocks, and following up with a bulldog. Cena continues his dominance, picking up Mysterio to deliver a fisherman’s suplex. Cena goes for an early pin but Mysterio kicks out relatively easily.
However, Cena still has control of the match, and hits Mysterio with a couple of leg drops. The Cenation Leader looks to lock in the STF, but Rey kicks him away. Mysterio leaps to his feet to try and fight back against Cena. Mysterio lays Cena out with an Enzuigiri, then heads up to the top rope. Mysterio flies at Cena hitting a seated senton, followed up immediately by a pin, but Cena manages a kick out.
Mysterio’s momentum doesn’t stop there however, The Ultimate Underdog hitting Cena with three consecutive dropkicks. Mysterio then heads towards the ropes, and hits Cena with a springboard crossbody, which ends in a pin attempt for Rey...
But Cena kicks out.
Rey uses a head scissors to line Cena up for the 629... But as Mysterio is running in to deliver his finisher, Cena turns and clobbers him with a powerful clothesline.
Cena ceases the momentum of the match, hitting Mysterio with a pair of shoulder blocks, before picking The Masked Warrior up and delivering a protoplex...
Cena taunts Mysterio with his signature “You Can’t See Me”, before hitting him with the five knuckle shuffle. Having delivered his signature move, Cena picks up Mysterio for an Attitude Adjustment. Before he can execute it however, Mysterio counters into a huricanrana DDT. Mysterio quickly hooks Cena’s leg but The Cenation Leader kicks out at two.
Mysterio heads up to the top rope once again, and flies at Cena to deliver a moonsault to the standing 10 time WWE Champion. Cena catches The Ultimate Underdog out of nowhere and hits a belly to belly suplex. Cena gets to his feet and surprisingly heads to the top rope. Cena waits for Mysterio to crawl to his knees, before diving off the turnbuckle and hitting a jumping legdrop bulldog on Mysterio!
Cena covers Rey...
But Mysterio digs deep and kicks out.
Cena reacts quickly, picking up Rey Mysterio for the Attitude Adjustment. But Mysterio wriggles out of it and lands behind Cena. Before John has a chance to turn back around, Mysterio dropkicks him in the back, sending The Cenation Leader flying forward, where he lands in the position for the 619.
Mysterio rushes in and delivers his trademarked manoeuvre, and Cena goes reeling back. Mysterio leaps to the top rope and springboards at Cena, looking for a seated senton. But Cena catches Mysterio in mid air, and puts him in position for the Attitude Adjustment. Mysterio tries to wriggle free, but to no avail, as Cena hits his Finisher on The Masked Warrior.
Cena covers the 3 time World Champion
Winner via Pinfall: John Cena
Cena helps Mysterio to his feet, and the pair shakes hands after an exhausting match to open Monday Night Raw. But in the end, John Cena is victorious, and the commentators ask if this will be the same result in 13 days time.
Interview: Josh Mathews with CM Punk
Mathews: CM Punk, we are less than two hours away from your WWE Title defence against, Ryback, inside a steel cage. How are you feeling right now?
Punk: How am I feeling Josh? You couldn’t understand. You’re just like all those people out there. You’ll never know what it’s like to amount to anything; never know what it’s like to be a champion. And for that matter, neither does Ryback. You see, Big Hungry has tried time and time again to take this away from me, and time and time again I have beaten him. Whether it’s a Hell in a Cell, a Triple Threat, or a TLC Match, I have always beaten Ryback, and tonight, will be no different. Of course I recognize the strength and power of Ryback, and I recognize that he would be an almost unbeatable opponent for any normal man. But I am not a “normal man”, Josh. I am The Best In The World. And tonight, I will prove it yet again.
Match 2: Kaitlyn vs Layla
After a few minutes of back and forth action between this pair, the competitors are attacked by Tamina Snuka. Tamina comes out of the crowd and starts brawling with both Kaitlyn and Layla, before she has a chance to inflict much damage on either of them, Natalya runs from the backstage area and down the ramp to join the fray.
Winner: No Contest
The divas Champion, Kaitlyn rolls out of the ring and gets a microphone.
Kaitlyn says that if all three of them want a shot at her title, then they should all have a chance to earn it. The Champion says that this Friday on Smackdown there should be a triple threat match between Layla, Tamina and Natalya, with the winner getting a title shot at Elimination Chamber.
The divas stare each other down as we go to commercial.
**End of Days**
Wade Barrett’s theme hits and the 2013 Royal Rumble winner makes his way out to the ring to address the WWE Universe.
In the ring: Wade Barrett
Barrett: Three weeks. You have three weeks to answer my challenge Undertaker. Now, I’ve heard all the headlines, this past week. Apparently, I’m insane for using my shot from The Royal Rumble to end the Streak. But you will all see just how wrong you are. You see, I am not afraid of The Undertaker. Quite the contrary really. The Undertaker is afraid of me. Because The Undertaker is a smart man. And he realized why, more than two years ago, The Nexus and I attacked The Undertaker, and we buried him alive. Because, two years ago, when I had The Nexus bury him, I showed The Undertaker that I was ready to face him at Wrestlemania. Ready to face him for The Streak. But instead of facing me, The Undertaker went straight for Triple H. And don’t get me wrong, he and Triple H had two classic matches. But it was all an attempt by The Undertaker to buy time, and to get his streak as high as possible, before he had to face his destiny. Before he had to face me. But now, Undertaker, your time is up. You will face me at Wrestlemania. And at Wrestlemania, I will finally prove that the Deadman... is mortal.
Barrett drops the mic and walks off up the ramp while his music plays.
Coming up next: Alberto Del Rio vs The Miz
Match 3: Alberto Del Rio w/ Ricardo Rodriguez vs The Miz
Del Rio starts the match off aggressively, obviously angry about being on the receiving end of the beating from Dolph Ziggler last Friday Night.
After a length back and forth matchup between these two former WWE Champions, The Miz starts to take control by hitting an Awesome Clothesline. The Miz toys with Del Rio, using numerous stomps to grind away at the Mexican. The Miz finally picks Del Rio up and prepares him for The Skull Crushing Finale.
But Del Rio shows fight! The Mexican Aristocrat escapes from the Skull Crushing Finale, and hits Miz with a German Suplex. Del Rio goes for a bridge pin, but Miz kicks out at two. But Del Rio looks to cease his opportunity, and hammers away on Miz with a combination of punches and kicks.
Del Rio picks up The Awesome One and delivers a fireman’s carry gutbuster. Miz writhes away clutching his stomach. Del Rio makes the cover but Miz kicks out.
Alberto heads to the top turnbuckle and goes for a moonsault on The Awesome One. Buy at the last second, Miz is able to roll out of the way and Del Rio hits nothing but mat.
The Miz rolls over to the ropes and starts to pull himself to his feet. Before he has a chance to, Kofi Kingston charges down the ramp and hits The Miz over the skull with the Intercontinental Championship belt! The referee is checking on Del Rio and misses the entire thing.
Miz reels backwards... straight into a step up Enzuigiri from a recovered Del Rio!
Del Rio pins The Awesome One...
Winner via Pinfall: Alberto Del Rio!
Kofi Kingston joins Del Rio in the ring to celebrate as we go to commercial.
It is the most evil structure in the WWE.
Many men will do battle in it.
Putting their bodies, their careers on the line
But only a few will survive...
...The Elimination Chamber
WWE Elimination Chamber- 17/02/13
**End of Promo**
Match 4: Team Hell No vs The Primetime Players
Kane and Daniel Bryan show no signs of problems following their loss of the WWE Tag Team Titles, as they dominate The Primetime Players in a relatively short match. The match ends when Kane Chokeslams Titus O’Neil and Daniel Bryan locks Darren Young in the Yes Lock, forcing him to tap out after only a few seconds resistance.
Winners via Submission: Team Hell No!
Kane and Bryan have very little time to celebrate their victory, as the lights are immediately cut out. When they come back on, The Shield hits the ring, assaulting both the former Tag Team Champions.
**If Ya Smeeelllllll**
The Rock’s music hits to a huge pop, and The People’s Champion/ New General Manager of Raw comes down to make the save. The Rock and Team Hell No send The Shield retreating into the crowd after a brief brawl. The Rock then gets on the mic...
Rock: Shield, week in week out you come out here and you attack superstars. You attack Team Hell No. You attack Randy Orton. You attack Ryback. And you attack The Rock. But The Rock is in charge of Monday Night Raw now. And The Rock is sick and tired of you Shield. So here’s what The Rock is gonna do about it. At The Elimination Chamber, The Rock is gonna face one of you, three. You can chose amongst yourselves who. And then The Rock is gonna surround this ring with security. And then, The Rock is gonna whoop your ass so badly you’ll hear it from here to Wrestlemania! If ya Smeeeeelllllllllllllllllllllll what the Rock is cookin’!
The Rock performs his signature pose in the ring as we go off the air.
In the Ring: Heath Slater, Drew McIntyre & Jinder Mahal
Slater: Over the past few months, Three Man Band has been ridiculed, made fun of and humiliated by all you people. But no longer. No more will Three Man Band be about music or entertaining you people. No, you people don’t appreciate that. You see, we’ve had an epiphany. What we have in Three Man Band is an alliance. An alliance that we can use to rise to prominence in the WWE. And when I beat my opponent tonight it will just be the beginning. The beginning of dominance by the Three Man Band.
Match 5: R-Truth vs Heath Slater
R-Truth starts the match off strongly, hitting a Scissor Kick just over a minute in. But Slater manages to kick out at two. After a few more minutes of dominance, R-Truth heads to the top turnbuckle for a high flying move. Before he can execute it however, Jinder Mahal gets up on the ring apron and looks to interfere. The referee rushes over to stop Mahal from entering the ring.
While the official does this, Drew McIntyre hits R-Truth with a lead pipe, knocking him off the turnbuckle and onto the mat.
Slater immediately capitalizes, picking Truth up, only to deliver his signature neckbreaker. Slater covers the fallen R-Truth and the referee counts the three.
Winner via Pinfall: Heath Slater!
Slater celebrates, along with the other members of The New Three Man Band. R-Truth begins to stir, and 3MB realise this. Three Man Band brutally attack R-Truth, Mahal hitting the Full Nelson Slam on the fallen competitor. Drew McIntyre finishes off the brutal assault with a Double Arm DDT. As 3MB leave the ring, Slater yells “Now do you take us seriously?” down the barrel of a camera.
Coming up next: Triple H will be on Raw for the first time in months to address the WWE Universe, and Brock Lesnar...
**Time to play the Game**
Triple H’s music hits and The Game comes out to a huge ovation. The Cerebral Assassin performs his trademarked ring entrance, before taking a microphone to address the WWE Universe.
In the ring: Triple H
Triple H: More than five months ago, at Summerslam, Brock Lesnar beat me. He broke my arm, again. And to be honest with all of you, I was ready to accept defeat. I was ready to call it quits. I was ready to retire. But then, I found out Brock Lesnar would be in the Royal Rumble. And I realised something. I realised that if I gave in, that if I called it quits, then there would be no one standing between Brock Lesnar and the WWE. If I retire I would be allowing Brock Lesnar to rule the WWE. But I can’t let that happen. I will not give up on the business I have given everything for my entire life. So Brock Lesnar, you want to return to the WWE? Well I promise you this. I will not make it easy for you. You will see the same thing that happened at The Royal Rumble happen every week you show your face here. Unless, you face me one more time.
Triple H: What I hold in my hand here Brock, is a contract. A contract for one more match between you and me... at Wrestlemania. And Brock, if you win everything you want, is yours. The Millions of dollars more. The private jet. The Monday Night Raw Starring Brock Lesnar. All yours. But most of all, I will be gone. I will retire, and there will be no one standing in your way. Brock Lesnar will rule the WWE. No one will stand in your way Brock. That is... if you win.
Triple H: There are two parts to my challenge for Wrestlemania. You know what happens if you win. But if you lose? You are gone from the WWE. No more Brock Lesnar. If I beat you at Wrestlemania, your career in Professional Wrestling is over. So Brock, what do you say? You and me. All or nothing. The very fate of this company on the line. At Wrestlemania!
Triple H’s music hits and The Game leaves the ring, with a purposeful gait. We are left to wonder if Brock Lesnar will accept Triple H’s challenge for Wrestlemania as we go to commercials.
Interview: Josh Mathews with Paul Heyman
Mathews: Paul, we all just saw Triple H’s challenge laid out for Wrestlemania, and now the question on everyone’s minds is will your client Brock Lesnar accept?
Heyman: Listen, I don’t have time for this. My other client CM Punk is about to defend the WWE Title inside a Steel Cage. But in thirteen days time, at Elimination Chamber, I assure you, the entire World will know Brock Lesnar’s response.
**The steel cage is lowered around the ring to ominous music.
Main Event: Steel Cage Match for the WWE Championship: CM Punk vs Ryback
Ryback enters the cage first, seemingly undaunted by its intimidating nature. Next, CM Punks music hits and the WWE Champion comes out to the ring accompanied by Paul Heyman. Punk slowly walks up the steel steps and joins Ryback in the ring.
As soon as Punk enters the ring, Ryback goes after him. Bug Hungry backs The Voice of the Voiceless into a corner and pounds away on The Champ. Ryback throws CM Punk into the wall of the cage, but the Champion, holds on to the steel and begins to climb...
Ryback reacts quickly pounding on the back of CM Punk, before pulling him off the wall of the cage and delivering an eclectic chair.
Ryback covers Punk, but The Champion kicks out. Ryback immediately resumes the beating he was giving Punk, stomping away on the WWE Champion. Ryback picks up his opponent and delivers a scoop powerslam, before picking him up again and ramming the Champion into the walls of the cage. CM Punk falls to the mat.
Ryback waits for him to rise, before clobbering Punk with a powerful clothesline. Ryback gets the crowd pumped up with chants of “Feed me more!” as he waits for the champion to get to his feet.
When Punk finally does so, Ryback sets him up for Shellshocked. But Punk manages to wriggle out and he lays Ryback out with a powerful roundhouse kick to the head. Punk falls to the mat but pulls himself to his feet using the ring ropes.
By the time he has done this, Ryback is getting to his feet as well. Punk grabs him by the neck and slams Big Hungry face first into the wall of the steel cage. Punk holds the challenger there for several seconds, grinding his face along the steel.
After a few seconds of pain from the steel, Ryback fights out of his predicament with several elbows to the stomach of Punk. Ryback goes for a clothesline on Punk but the champion ducks, and follows up with a series of kicks to either flank of Ryback. Punk lays the big man out with a dropkick and heads for the ropes.
Punk begins to climb out of the cage, but Ryback soon gets to his feet in the middle of the ring. Ryback chases after Punk, and pulls him partially down from the cage wall. CM Punk wriggles over to the turnbuckle, but Ryback goes after him there. Champion and Challenger exchange several blows on the turnbuckle, before CM Punk knees Ryback in the groin, which sends the big man toppling down from the turnbuckle.
Instead of attempting another climb over the top of the cage, CM Punk signals the Randy Savage Elbow, and dives off the turnbuckle onto the challenger, delivering an emphatic diving elbow! Punk immediately covers Ryback...
But Ryback kicks out.
CM Punk starts crawling towards the door, and Heyman tells the referee to open it. The door opens and CM Punk starts to crawl out. But before he has a chance to escape, Ryback gets up and comes after The Champion. Ryback tries to pull Punk away from the door, but Paul Heyman grabs onto his client.
Ryback outmatches Heyman in strength, and pulls Punk away from the door. But before he does, Heyman slips CM Punk an object, which the champion hides in his tights.
Ryback pulls Punk to the middle of the ring, and picks him up to deliver a fallaway slam to the Champion. Ryback covers the fallen Punk...
But the Champion kicks out.
But Ryback is not done there. He quickly gets to his feet, spurred on by chants of “Feed me More!” emanating from the crowd. Ryback scoops CM Punk up and sets him up for Shellshocked!
But Punk fights back, elbowing Ryback in the face a number of times, sending Big Hungry sideways into the wall of the cage. Then Punk springs into action. The WWE Champion reaches into his tights and pulls out the object that Heyman had given him earlier... a pair of handcuffs! Punk dazes Ryback with a kick to the forehead, before grabbing his arm, and chaining the challenger’s wrist to the wall of the steel cage!
Punk leaps back from Ryback, leaving Big Hungry locked to the cage wall. Ryback tries desperately to break the handcuff, but to no avail. CM Punk tells the referee’s to open the door, and strolls out to the floor!
Winner via Escaping the Cage and STILL WWE Champion: CM Punk!!!
CM Punk celebrates with the title held high, as a handcuffed Ryback is forced to look on. But will CM Punk be able to do the same in thirteen days time, at The Elimination Chamber
