So That Happened: 03/25/13

RAW begins with CM Punk and Paul Heyman walking out with the urn. CM Punk talks about The Undertaker’s undefeated streak and how people say Taker is unstoppable and unbeatable at Wrestlemania. Punk talks about the urn feeding The Undertaker power and calls all these myths stupid. Punk asks Paul Heyman and Paul Bearer who “they” are then says “they” doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Punk says everybody has opinions but the only opinion that matters is his because he turns his opinions into fact.

CM Punk says the streak should’ve ended with The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels and Triple H skipping off into the sunset, but Taker ruined it when he walked out a few weeks ago and pointed to Punk’s “Wrestlemania” signs. Punk says now The Undertaker’s streak is going to be re-written by a man that’s not afraid of the dark but by The Best In The World.

CM Punk blames The Undertaker for all of this and says he didn’t take the urn to disrespect Paul Bearer, he took the it because it matters to The Undertaker. Punk says the urn doesn’t matter to him and drops it.

CM Punk says for the first time in The Undertaker’s life, he’s at a psychological disadvantage because he’s scared. Punk says Taker could’ve gone 30-0 and 50-0 against any other Superstar, but he is CM Punk and there is nobody in the world better or smarter than him and nobody in the world that will beat him at Wrestlemania. Punk says he is the 1 in 20-1.

CM Punk calls out The Undertaker and mocks his “Rest In Peace” catchphrase. Punk says Rest is something he’s never been afforded and Peace is something he has never lived with. Punk claims at Wrestlemania, The Undertaker and his perfect record will Rest…In…Peac- GONG! The lights go out.

The lights turn back on with The Undertaker beating the shit out of CM Punk! The Undertaker beats CM Punk down while Paul Heyman runs for his life.

CM Punk eventually escapes and stands at the top of the ramp staring down The Undertaker.
