How I would book the start of Raw this week

As recent weeks - CM Punk enters with Heyman to a decent mixed reaction to start the show.

CM Punk give the usual talk about respects, WWE Champion and being the best in the world. The discussion then moves to how CM Punk is a class above everyone else on the roster, noone can touch him. Talk about Daniel Bryan being in a weird tag team with Kane and that he isn't wwe title material. Bring up [the fact that there isn't anyone on the roster who can touch him now that Cena is out. Noone has stepped up to grab the brass ring etc.

This brings out cena to another intriguing reaction of girl sounding squeals from the 5 and unders section of the audience. Salute and walk to the ring. he circles punk and grabs a microphone. Runs punk down and says he cant believe what he's saying. I'm back after Hell in a Cell blah blah blah...but until then how can you say the guys in the back don't want to be WWE champion.

Punk replies they are all nobodys etc.

Cena goes on about how theres some guys who can prove them wrong....

Cue lower face - Zack Ryder
Zack charges the ring and cops a nice GTS and so long

Cue Midcard Face - R- Truth/Kofi Kingston
Charge the ring gets a forearm or spear takedown in. Punk eventually overcomes the odds and big kick to the head and another GTS. They are gone.

Cue Upper Midcard Slightly surprising face - Big Show/Mark Henry/Dolph Ziggler
Charge the ring unload, offence goes back and forth and then bigshow or henry over power punk and he cops a chokeslam/WSS and he is down. Ziggler would use his speed and agility to get past and around punk. The face would then stand over punk and stare heyman out of the ring. Pick up the WWE Title and signal indication.

Maybe Kofi Kingston could be the last face (but not upper mid) to step up and challenge punk for the next 2 or 3 weeks to give him a rub, but also take the emphasise off cena while he recovers. He will still be apart throwing in his promos etc. We all know punk isn't losing his WWE title on an episode of raw as he closes in a year reign.

The problems that I know will surface:

- Ziggler is the world title side of things, but would be able to explain why he changed it over for a WWE title shot (or he wants to be a undisputed chanmpion)
- Big show and mark henry are definitive heels....big show is repetitive
- We are still 5 weeks from HIAC so still plenty of time
- Cena will be ready by then just give promos etc.
- I was hoping for a short WWE title feud between someone like kofi kingston/punk because of their history for approximately 2-4 weeks kind of like miz/morrison in january a couple of years ago.


I can see the light mum...please don't smack me on the's cruel, unkind and just down right MEAN!...pfft I'm telling you that you'll new know what it's like to be me...only me...and nothing but me...

R-Truth defending himself against Lil' Jimmy's imaginary, real life, blood relative from a second cousin's mother's uncle's hillbilly goat's father's mother!

Not a bad idea. But good lord that scenario just shows how poorly they have done in creating new stars. Not one of those guys sounds even mildy worthy. I'd prefer Mark Henry. A victory over him would probably be the most impressive for Punk, assuming they have Henry show some dominance in the weeks building to HIAC.

I would book the start of Raw WITH AN OPENING MATCH. I miss the days when Raw started with a match, instead of a 20-minute promo.
