Re: WWE 2013
WWE Raw- 21 January 2013
Intro: We are just six days away from what is shaping up to be a massive Royal Rumble Pay Per view. But tonight, all the superstars of the WWE will try to gain momentum going into that massive event. Sheamus, John Cena and Randy Orton have formed an unlikely alliance to take on The Shield, whose attacks have devastated the WWE, in an anything goes tornado match! Also tonight, CM Punk and The rock will face off, ahead of their historic title match at the royal Rumble. All this and more, live here on Monday Night Raw!
John Cena’s music hits and the Cenation leader walks out to the ring
In The Ring: John Cena
Cena: Now, as I’m sure most of you already know, I’m going to be in action tonight. I’ve had a talk with Randy Orton and with Sheamus, and for one night only, we’re going to put aside our differences for one night only and work together, to get rid of this group that calls themselves The Shield. You see, Shield, tonight you’re going to learn a very valuable lesson. That lesson is, here in the WWE, if you attack people without provocation, there will be consequences. And you will see those consequences tonight, when me, Sheamus, and Randy Orton kicks all three of your “justice shielding” asses!
**Huge cheers from the crowd at this**
Cena: But I also came out here to talk about this Sunday, and the Royal Rumble match. As I’m sure most of you know... 2012 wasn’t the best of years for me. I didn’t win a title, I lost to The Rock at Wrestlemania, and I got screwed out of the WWE title again and again by CM Punk and The Shield. But this Sunday, I promise to all of you that I will put last year behind me. This Sunday I will put 2012 behind me and do everything in my power to win the Royal Rumble match, and go to Wrestlemania!
**I hear Voices in My Head**
Randy Orton’s music hits and the Viper joins Cena in the ring...
Orton: John John John... We may be partners tonight, but that isn’t gonna stop me from telling you how completely wrong you are. You see, I had just as bad of a 2012 as you did. I wasn’t able to taste gold that year either. And now the critics and the doubters say the Viper doesn’t have what it takes any more. Well... they will all be proved wrong this Sunday. You see John, I’m afraid you can’t win the Rumble, because the rumble already has a winner and that’s me. I will win the Royal Rumble, go to Wrestlemania and regain MY world title. And then The Age of Orton will return to the WWE.
**I’ve Had Enough!**
Wade Barrett’s music hits and the Intercontinental Champion makes his way down to the ring...
Barrett: You two really haven’t changed have you? You’re both just the same delusional men, desperate to relive their glory days. Well, you need to stop living in the past. Neither of you will win that Rumble this Sunday, because neither of you has what it takes any more. You’re no longer on top of the company. There are others on top now, and one of them is standing before you right now. You see this? Do you both see this? This is a championship title. Something that neither of you has touched for nearly eighteen months. This Sunday you two can throw everything you have into the royal Rumble match, but no matter how hard you try, the Barrett Barrage will prevail!
Randy Orton has clearly had enough, and lunges at Barrett, attempting an RKO. Barrett counters and pushes Orton into Cena, knocking the two of them over. Barrett then slides out of the leaves the ring, and exits through the crowd. Seconds later, The Shield hit the ring and attack Cena and Orton. Orton and Cena are able to hold their own but are quickly becoming overpowered. Suddenly, Sheamus’ music hits and the Celtic warrior charges down to ringside. With the added man, the numbers are even, and The Shield soon retreat, due to their lack of an advantage. Cena Orton and Sheamus taunt the Shield from the ring as we go to commercial.

CM Punk’s music hits, and the WWE Champion makes his way out to the ring with Paul Heyman...
In the ring: CM Punk and Paul Heyman
Punk: So here we are... six nights away from perhaps the biggest match of this century. CM Punk vs The Rock for the WWE Title. A match that will surely go down throughout the history of professional wrestling. But before then, I have something I want to say to you Dwayne. I know you’re in the back there, so come on out. Meet me in this ring. Right now.
**If ya smell!**
The Rock’s music blares over the speakers, and The People’s Champion joins CM Punk in the ring.
CM Punk opens his mouth to say something...
Rock: Uh-uh-uh. You don’t talk yet. The Rock has something he wants to do.... FINALLY The Rock has come back to San Jose, California. Now, The rock has to turn his attention to this Sunday, where The Rock will go one on one with The man standing across from him in this ring right now. Now I know what you’re thinking, that doesn’t sound like much of a fight. There’s no way the Oompa Loompa Paul Heyman could possibly last ten seconds against The Rock. Well The Rock says that it’s the other one standing across the ring from The Rock, CM Punk, who is gonna get an ass whooping this Sunday. So Punk, how do you feel about that?
Punk: Well I-
Rock: IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW YOU FEEL!
Punk smiles and gives Rock a few sarcastic claps.
Rock: This Sunday Punk you’re gonna get a beating of a lifetime. And if your little oompa loompa fried tries to get involved, or if any of your little Shield friends try to get involved, then I’m gonna grab that nice WWE Championship belt of your. I’m gonna shine it up reeeaaalll nice. And then, I’m gonna stick it straight up their candy ass! Cause you see Punk, at The Rumble, this reign of terror of yours, it’s coming to an end. You’ve done well enough to hold the title this long, and I respect that, but you’ve held on to that title for far too long. And this Sunday The rock will give his millions-
Crowd: AND MILLIONS!
Rock: -of Rock’s fans something to finally cheer about. When The Rock takes that title from you. Why? Because The Rock is sick and The Rock is tired of the way you disrespect this company, and the way you disrespect these people, The Rock’s people. So this Sunday, The Rock is finally gonna show you why, in this company, in this business, you need to respect the people who pay to see you!
After a long pause, Punk finally speaks...
Punk: Dwayne, let me ask you something? How did you get this match, with me at The Royal Rumble? I didn’t see you win any no1 contenders match, in fact you’ve only won two matches in the past ten years. No you got this match my going to Vince McMahon, and asking for a title match. And of course. Vince McMahon was all too happy to oblige. Because Vince McMahon loves his money making pet Rocky, almost as much as he loves his other money making pet, John Cena. But you know what... Tyson Kidd has won more matches in the past month than you have in nine years, but you know what would happen if Tyson Kidd went up to your friend Vinnie Mac to ask for a title match? Vince would laugh in his face!
Punk: You see Rock, my biggest problem isn’t with you, it isn’t with the fans, it isn’t even with John Cena. My biggest problem is with Vince McMahon and the way he runs this company. With Vince it has nothing to do with how good a wrestler really is, how hard they work, how much they deserve to be at the top. With Vince, it’s all about how much money they’ll make him. And that’s what happened with you Rock. You were a good wrestler Dwayne, but not the best at the time. But you rode your charisma and your marketability all the way to the top of the company. And that’s the same reason why last year, even though I held this WWE championship, month after month after month, even though I constantly gave you match of the year candidates, week in week out, whomever I was facing, John Cena would still main event Pay per View after Pay per View. Cena had arguably the worst year of his career last year, yet is still considered by Vince McMahon to be better than me. And yes Rock, it’s the same reason, that last Wrestlemania, it was you and Cena who ended the show. Not me and Chris Jericho, even though Chris is twice the wrestler either of you will ever be.
Punk: In this company, no matter how hard you work, if Vince doesn’t like you, you will never get to the top. Just ask Vince’s son in law, Triple H, who got on Vince’s wrong side for years, and was forced to wrestle hog pen matches with Henry Godwin. Just ask all the staff and wrestlers Vince McMahon has fired over the years without any good reason.
Punk: And that, Dwayne, is why when you say you are fighting for the people, you are spitting in the face of this business and you are spitting in the face of the likes of Tyson Kidd, who work their ass off but never get anywhere because of Vince McMahon.
Punk drops the Microphone, leaves the ring and walks up the ramp, Paul Heyman following him. Rock watches him leave as we fade to black...
