So That Happened: 03/18/13

RAW begins with John Cena!

John Cena says there’s 20 days till Wrestlemania and although the crowd is divided, it’s time to pick a side. Cena says he has a message for The Rock’s fans and it’s, “Your Time Is Up. Our Time Is Now.” Cena says all we have is right now then reminds us of his victories in 2013 and the fans who stuck through the hard times. Cena says he won’t predict victory, but he is focused and ready for Wrestlemania.

John Cena is interrupted by the Prime Time Players. Titus O’Neil comes out in a wig and a jumpsuit…

The Prime Time Players say they are also ready for Wrestlemania 29, then introduce O’Neil’s new character, Rufus “Pancake” Patterson, Titus O’Neil’s Uncle. They call him pancake because he “flattens fools.” John Cena makes pancake jokes, sucks up to Pittsburgh by naming the Steelers and Penguins, then says he can get them some medication.

“Pancake Patterson” says the only medication the WWE Universe needs is the Prime Time Players. Darren Young says the PTP put the E in WWE Entertainment. John Cena calls Young out on the extra E, but the Prime Time Players do the “Millions Of Dollars” dance until Patterson’s gout acts up. I’m not making this up.

John Cena says the Prime Time Players timing is off and says he hopes he’ll see them at Wrestlemania. Pancake Patterson says they don’t want to see Cena at Wrestlemania. They want to see The Prime Time Players. Patterson brings up the comparisons between John Cena and Darren Young, and thinks Darren Young should be on the cover of Cocoa Pebbles since John Cena is on the cover of Fruity Pebbles. They want to change the name to Prime Time Pebbles.

“Pancake Patterson” refuses to fight John Cena because of his “gout” and volunteers Darren Young. Darren Young claims that after John Cena loses to him tonight, Cena will be weeping and crying just like last years Wrestlemania. Cena changes his mood and accepts the challenge.

Damien Sandow asks for the music to be silenced because he is about to speak. Sandow quotes Henry David Thoreau, “rather than love than money, than fame, give me truth.” Sandow says Thoreau is rolling over in his grave by seeing R-Truth. Sandow says the R obviously stands for Repugnant.

Punk says he doesn’t answer to a Higher Power because he IS the Higher Power.

CM Punk says he’s not going to claim it was his destiny to beat The Streak. Punk says he’s the one man in the world who can endure the burden of snapping The Undertaker’s streak. Punk claims he’s willing ot walk through hell and endure whatever pain Taker inflicts on him. Punk says he The One that will end the streak at Wrestlemania and that he is The One in 20-1.
