So That Happened: 09/30/13

RAW begins with CM Punk!

The middle rope is pink again in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month:

After a loud CM Punk chant, CM Punk says a lot of people think that RAW thrives on unpredictability and he’s as predictable as it comes. Punk says sometimes predictability is okay and uses the examples of Paul Heyman bragging, him attacking Paul Heyman and him getting beaten down by Curtis Axel and Ryback.

 CM Punk says he’s okay with predictability because he knows how this story ends. It ends when he gets a hold of Curtis Axel and makes him go to sleep. It ends when he gets his hands on Ryback and shows him what truly happens to bullies. And it ends when he finally gets his hands on Paul Heyman, and Heyman realizes there is no one left to save him. CM Punk is cut off by a small “Ryback Sucks” chant, but encourages the crowd to continue the chant.

CM Punk the story ends when he puts an end to Paul Heyman and that could be this Sunday at Battleground, or next week on RAW or right here, now and live on the USA Network.

CM Punk says he’s been in a fighting mood for months and he’s not leaving the ring until he gets a fight. CM Punk doesn’t care if he fights Paul Heyman, Curtis Axel or Ryback, all Punk wants is a fight and he promises to put Paul Heyman out of his misery. Suddenly, Brad Maddox comes out trying to calm CM Punk down.

CM Punk mocks Brad Maddox for not having theme music.

Brad Maddox tells CM Punk that he understands that he was embarrassed last week and wants an ultimate showdown right now with Ryback, but that’s just not what’s best for business. Maddox reminds CM Punk that he has a match with Ryback at Battleground, but since he is the RAW GM, he has the power to give CM Punk a match tonight if he’d like one, but not against Ryback.

CM Punk tells Brad Maddox that he’s looking for an outlet for his aggression. Before he can finish, Big E. Langston comes down to the ring.

Big E. Langston tells CM Punk if he wants aggression, he’s his man. Big E. attacks CM Punk.

Heyman says Punk is so obsessed with getting his hands on him and it’s something he will never be able to do again. Heyman claims CM Punk will never be able to bully him again because CM Punk is a nobody who became a Paul Heyman guy, who became a WWE Champion that forgot what made them the Best In The World.
