so..my first show on BTB
RAW, July 30
Cole:Hello guys, and welcome to the 1001st episode of Monday Night RAW. Tonight we're live in Cincinnati, Ohio. I'm Michael Cole and I'm accompanied at commentery by Jerry "The King" Lawler. And what a fantastic 1000th episode we had last week, King!
Lawler:Yes Cole! Imagine Roddy Piper, The Rock, APA, Lita, Rikishi and many other legends in one single night! It's amazing!
Cole:You're right. But now you're gonna see a flashback with The Rock's big announce last week!
On the titantron there appear the moments when The Rock announces he will face the WWE Champion at Royal Rumble and when he Rock Bottoms Daniel Bryan.
"Cult of Personality" hits and CM Punk enters the arena accompanied by mixed reactions from the fans. CM Punk arrives in the ring and grabs a microphone.
CM Punk: Hi everybody! You missed me?
The crowed gives a mixed reaction
CM Punk: I guess everybody wants to find out the explanation of what I did last week. Let's see...
The moment when Big Show hits the WMD on Cena and Punk decides to cover the challenger appears on the titantron.
CM Punk: Well, as you see, there was a dark angel on one of my shoulders that was telling me: "Do it, cover him, the only thing which matters is the belt!" and on the other shoulder there was an angel that was telling me: "Don't do it, don't turn your back on the fans!". And obviously I did what the dark angel said, I don't give a f*ck about the fans, all I care abou is ME!
Punk receives some big boooes from the crowd.
CM Punk: Let's face it, you have to take advantage of any chance you have if you want to do something with your life. And now you boo me because you like to do things cleanly and that's the reason why you didn't do anything with your lives. YOU'RE LOSERS!
Again the crowd booes him as he gets more heat.
CM Punk: You didn't do anything with your lives and that's why you came here to watch someone like me who obviously did something with his life. And you boo me, because you don't understand that you have to take advantage of any chance you have instead of being clean. You expect heroes like Superman Cena and Iron Man Dwayne and Powerpuff Girl Sheamus. (the crowd reacts: Ohhhh!) (Punk laughs) You know, the Powerpuff Girl with red hair. (he takes a break for a few seconds and looks at the crowd) At the end of the show I gave The Rock a beating he'll never forget. I mean, who does he thinks he is? He has 1 match a year and demands a title shot at Royal Rumble? (laughs) In 1 single year I did more than he did in his entire career. (boos) And at the end of the night he tried to steal the show. But I didn't let him do this, because he didn't understand that I'm the WWE Champion and it's all about me. And I came there and stood tall at the end of the greatest RAW ever because I'm the best wrestler in the history of this company. (boos)
"My time is now" hits and CEna gets in the ring with a microphone.
Cena: Well, you certainly are the luckiest wrestler in the history of this company. Everybody saw I'm the better man and I should have won. Now I won't talk to much and say why I came here for. I want a title shot at Summerslam (mixed reaction)
CM Punk: And I want to be the president of the United States, but it's not possible. Even if I know I would win. Just listen to this people: "CM Punk for president!" (laughs) So you want another title shot. You think you deserve anything. Even if you lose you want another match, you're the most overrated athlete I've ever met and you don't deserve to be in the same ring with me.
Big Show's music hits.
Big Show: You're righy, Cena lost his chance. But don't forget Punk, you're standing with your belt on your shoulders because of me. You would have lost! But I came to save your ass. Punk, I want a match with you at Summerslam. What I need is that WWE Title!
CM Punk: What you need is some diet sodas, King Kong! ("Ohhh!" from the crowd).
The three look to start fighting, but AJ's music hits as she comes on the ramp.
AJ: John Cena, I'll give you another cahnce. But you have to win the #1 contender's match in the Main Event of tonight's RAW: John Cena vs...The Big Show (mixed reaction)...in a Steel Cage Match, again!...Oh, and Punk...stay in the ring, your match is next! (Punk looks angry)

(cheers) And you know, I want to be sure that there's gonna be a winner. And I want a special match for Summerslam, not a Standard Match. ("Yes!" chants) But there's other things that I want to talk about. The reason why Heyman accepted the challenge was that Stephanie kicked his ass.

So Triple H, as you lay there I want to listen to my challenge and answer it next Monday. This is my proposal: If you win, you won't pay me anything.

("Yes!" chants) But when she refused me I saw in her eyes something else. I saw love in her eyes. (boos) And you know what, I'm 100% percent sure rhat she stills love me.

Match 9-Main Event: Big Show vs John Cena in a Steel Cage #1 contender's Match
Typical boring match between the 2, so I won't detail the match. Big Show dominated almost the entire match and Cena had several "hulk-ups".

Big Show vs John Cena ended in a draw
CM Punk claims that as noone won the match he won't defend his title at Summerslam, but AJ comes.
AJ: CM Punk, let me correct you! I say that they're both winners, so the WWE Championship has now 2 #1 contenders. Therefore at Summerslam you'll defend your title against Big Show and John Cena in a Triple Threat Match (mixed reaction)
RAW ends as CM Punk is arguing with AJ.
