Check out our Simpsons Tribute/April Fools Joke….after reading our RAW Recap of course!

RAW kicks off with John Cena, who comes out to more boos than usual.

John Cena says he stands in the middle of a house divided, ironically enough in Washington D.C., the home of the Democrats and Republicans, but tonight is full of Cena-crats and Rock-publicans, with all eyes focused on Wrestlemania.

John Cena says he doesn’t like Dwayne Johnson but he respects The Rock because of the global Superstar that he is and that he’s the WWE Champion. John Cena talks about his rivalry from with The Rock last year, then says the childish games are over. Cena says The Rock is the WWE Champion and has done everything he’s set out to do. Cena says tonight he will not waste time talking about “Dwayne’s Johnson.”

John Cena says this Sunday at Wrestlemania he’s facing The Rock, who he believes is the greatest WWE Champion of all time. Cena claims that victory might be impossible, but then mentions his triumphs at the Royal Rumble and against CM Punk. Cena says The Rock is The Great One but The Great One will fall, and that The Rock’s time is up and Cena’s time is now.

John Cena gets silenced by a loud “Cena Sucks” chant, then says this Sunday, the WWE Universe may get a moment that they never thought possible in their lifetime. Cena brings up The Rock mentioning he’s accepted failure before, but claims The Rock’s failure won’t just stay in the locker room at Metlife Stadium. Cena vents about having to deal with his loss to The Rock for a year, saying he had to sit back watch The Rock usher in a new era and championship. Cena claims The Rock stuck his own foot in his mouth by saying he will hold the WWE Championship for as long as he pleases.

John Cena says that he will get redemption and that when The Rock defends his new WWE Championship for the first time, he will lose it. Cena says The People’s Era will remain and the WWE Universe will remain, but The Mighty Rock will experience failure. Cena claims The Rock will have to live with the fact that the WWE Championship created by him, will be defended by John Cena. Cena gets silenced by a loud “Boring” chant.

John Cena says he has no intentions of replacing the new WWE Championship because he wants to hold it as a symbol that proves that not only is he The Rock’s equal, but he is better than The Rock. Cena says this Sunday is Wrestlemania and he will shock the world. Cena says that this Sunday, The Rock will know the WWE Championship is made for him, but The Champ Is Here!

Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter outside the White House: 

 Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter rant about America being broken and how Jack Swagger knows how to fix it.

Backstage: Matt Striker asks Alberto Del Rio about Jack Swagger’s comments. Del Rio says America is the land of opportunity and one of the great rights America has is Freedom Of Speech.

Shawn Michaels Speaks:

Shawn Michaels says you couldn’t have Wrestlemania without Mr. Wrestlemania. HBK runs down the Wrestlemania card, then says there is one match that he’s particularly interested in: Brock Lesnar vs. his best friend, Triple H. HBK talks about the history between Triple H and Brock Lesnar, including his broken arm, but once Triple H put his career on the line, HBK felt like he had some very serious concern, doubts and questions. HBK is interrupted by Triple H’s music.

Triple H tells Shawn Michaels that he knows what he’s doing and that it’s the same situation HBK was in. HBK disagrees and says that in his career threatening match, he faced The Undertaker, someone who he has the utmost respect for and vice versa. HBK says he was heartbroken when his career was ended, but The Undertaker felt the same way. When it comes to Brock Lesnar, HBK says Brock Lesnar respects no one and Triple H sure as hell doesn’t respect Lesnar.

Shawn Michaels says Brock Lesnar is in the WWE to make money and wreak havoc. HBK talks about how much the WWE means to Triple H and how it’s become his life and at Wrestlemania, Triple H didn’t put his career on the line. He put his life on the line. Triple H tells Shawn Michaels he loves him like a brother, but he can’t talk him out of the match. HBK says he’s not here for that. He’s here to tell Triple H that he’d better kick Brock Lesnar’s ass. And unlike Summerslam, HBK will be in his corner.

Triple H and Shawn Michaels hug then almost say the DX catchphrase but they’re interrupted by Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman.

Paul Heyman says Brock Lesnar has “Two Words” for them, but it’s not the two words Shawn Michaels and Triple H are looking for. Heyman says Brock Lesnar is going to beat Triple H into retirement at Wrestlemania and as disappointing as that is for Triple H and the WWE Universe, they are going to have to live with that disappointment. Paul Heyman says Triple H will disappoint Mr. McMahon, the Board Of Directors, Shawn Michaels and his wife, Stephanie McMahon but he’s probably used to that already.

Triple H is prepared to fight but Paul Heyman says Brock Lesnar gets paid to fight, like this Sunday at Wrestlemania. Heyman asks Shawn Michaels if he wants to be this close to when Brock Lesnar beats Triple H down and possibly breaks his arm again. HBK takes his shirt off and Paul Heyman claims HBK and Triple H fight from emotion, which is why Shawn Michaels ahad to retire at Wrestlemania and why Triple H will have to retire at Wrestlemania.

Paul Heyman says Triple H should’ve walked away when he had the chance. Now, Triple H is going to crawl away with his tail tucked between his legs, a beaten, battered, emasculated retiree that has disappointed the entire WWE Universe because he wasn’t man enough to beat Brock Lesnar, the very same Brock Lesnar who has forced Triple H to commit “Professional Suicide.” Brock Lesnar’s theme music plays as Lesnar and Heyman walk away. Triple H does a crotch chop for good measure.

Match 04: Santino Marella vs. Mark Henry

Winner: Mark Henry

Ryback’s music plays and he comes down to the ring.

Ryback picks up Santino Marella and hits Mark Henry with him. Ryback chucks Santino onto Mark Henry, calls him “STUPID!” then leads a “FEED ME MORE” chant.

Backstage: Matt Striker asks CM Punk if he feels like he’s disrespecting the memory of Paul Bearer. Punk thinks the better question is does he give a damn if he’s disrespecting the memory of Paul Bearer. Punk says he’s trying to get in The Undertaker’s head because he wants to win and that the only career or legacy he cares about is his own. Punk says is going to beat The Undertaker’s streak, especially since The Undertaker is more concerned with Paul Bearer. Punk claims the stark difference between himself and any other opponent for The Undertaker, that he will do whatever he takes to win. Punk teases a DQ, Tap Out or Countout victory then says he do whatever it takes to beat The Undertaker at Wrestlemania, including walking on graves and spitting on faces.

Rock tells John Cena that this Sunday isn’t about redemption, it’s and wil always be about the will of the people. The Rock says this Sunday, the will of the people is for The Rock to take his size 15 boot and curb stop John Cena’s monkey ass all over Wrestlemania.

The Rock says the will of the people is bigger than John Cena could ever imagine and if the people will it, they can change the world. The Rock starts to tease the idea of him becoming President and going from President Barack to President The Rock.

The Rock reminds John Cena of his loss at Wrestlemania and the Rock Bottom last week and says this Sunday, John Cena’s Time Isn’t Now. His Time Is Never. The Rock says Wrestlemania is not about redemption or passing the torch. Rock claims the only way John Cena will get the WWE Championship is if The Rock lights it on fire and throws a fireball up John Cena’s Candy Ass.

The Rock says this Sunday, John Cena is not just facing The Rock or 80,000 strong. He’s facing a connection. A connection between The Rock and The Millions (AND MILLIONS) The Rock says John Cena can’t deny the will of the people or beat The Rock.
