So That Happened: 06/03/13

Justin Roberts introduces Stephanie McMahon!

Stephanie McMahon says that it’s great to be back on RAW but wishes it was under better circumstances. Stephanie brings up Triple H’s matches against Brock Lesnar and Curtis Axel, then reminds us that Triple H was unable to finish the match with Axel. Stephanie informs us that even though Triple H is medically cleared tonight, she has made an Executive Decision to not allow Triple H to compete against Curt Axel, a Superstar who she feels is beneath him.


Stephanie McMahon tries to reason with us by saying Triple H has given us his life and body and tells us that this decision is not about the WWE Universe. After a loud Triple H chant, Stephanie asks us to not be so selfish.

Mr. McMahon’s theme plays and the crowd cheers as he comes out.

Mr. McMahon embraces the cheers then says the WWE Universe is happy to see him. McMahon says he’s happy to see them, but he has a personal request. McMahon asks the WWE to not boo his daughter Stephanie, which only makes the crowd boo more. McMahon tries to reason with the WWE Universe and tells them to have some compassion because she’s right.

Mr. McMahon starts to speak about Triple H’s well-being but he’s cut off by a loud Triple H chant.

Mr. McMahon says Triple H has given everything he possibly can as Stephanie McMahon says she loves him more than the WWE Universe. Mr. McMahon adds on by saying they both care more about Triple H and that he will NOT compete tonight.

The crowd boos as a loud Triple H chant breaks out. Mr. McMahon asks what the crowd wants from him? Mr. McMahon reminds us that WWE is Family Entertainment and not a “Blood Sport.” Mr. McMahon brings up Kofi Kingston being attacked by Ryback as an example as the WWE Universe chanted “One More Time.” McMahon says there won’t be One More Time for Triple H and that not only is Curtis Axel “beneath” Triple H, but the WWE Universe might be beneath him as well.

The Shield’s theme plays and The Shields make their way down to the ring. \

Bryan starts blaming himself until Kane and Randy Orton try to calm him down. Bryan claims Randy Orton can’t apologize to him because they don’t respect him. Kane says he does respect Bryan and that Bryan has lost touch with reality. Bryan says the reality is that he’s the “Weak Link.”

Randy Orton tells Daniel Bryan that it was one match and Bryan loses it further. Bryan says one match could have solidified that he is NOT the weak link and he could have earned everybody’s respect. Bryan says that didn’t happen and since it’s clear that the two of them don’t respect him, he’s going to have another match and beat the respect out of someone else. Bryan says maybe then, Randy Orton and Kane will finally respect him, then storms off.

Heyman takes the mic and says before he signs his agreement, which he could’ve signed in private, but since Jericho has an ego, he’s going to say it to Jericho’s face. Heyman starts praising CM Punk’s accomplishments, but Chris Jericho finishes it for him then adds Punk’s buzzcut and pizza, donut and ice cream sandwich tattoos to the list of accolades.

Chris Jericho is about to sign the contract, but Paul Heyman asks Jericho if he’s truly prepared to face the Best In The World, CM Punk, in Chicago.

Heyman mentions how CM Punk can do no wrong in Chicago and that Jericho will be vilified by the entire audience. Heyman tells Jericho that he may be “The Best In The World At What He Does,” but CM Punk is the Best In The World At What He Does, which is making liars out of people who think they can lay claim to the title of “Best In The World.”
