Paul Heyman Opens RAW, Brock Lesnar Attacks Mark Henry

RAW opens with CM Punk’s theme music immediately hitting. Nobody comes out for several seconds and then Paul Heyman waddles his way out to a round of boo’s. Heyman hits the ring and when the music stops an insanely loud “CM Punk, CM Punk” chant breaks out. Heyman says he deserves louder than that. They chant even louder.

Heyman sits down in the middle of the ring Indian style, ala Punk. Heyman says he came here tonight to tell the story of a Paul Heyman guy. A Paul Heyman guy who was never truly wanted in WWE. A Paul Heyman guy that “they” thought was too small to main event WrestleMania. The CM Punk chants start up again as Heyman continues to tell his story about Punk. Heyman says this is his pipe bomb about CM Punk, “who is not here this evening.” They loudly boo and chant CM Punk again. Heyman says he doesn’t disagree with the fans. Heyman says so what really happened, why isn’t CM Punk here and why won’t anyone talk about him anymore? He says there is someone to blame as to why Punk wouldn’t put up with things anymore. Heyman says tonight he will point the blame as to why Punk isn’t here anymore. He says he blames each and every single one of the fans for it. Heyman brags about Punk setting a record as champion when he was with him and then the fans took him away. He says the fans not only took CM Punk away from him, but he took him away from yourselves.

Heyman says he not only blames the fans, but he also blames The Undertaker. He says this entire downward spiral began when “we” couldn’t end the streak and beat The Undertaker. Heyman says he wants revenge. Heyman says he wants to see the streak taken away from The Undertaker and there’s only one man who can do it. That’s Brock Lesnar. This brings out Lesnar.

Lesnar comes to the ring and when his music stops, the very loud CM Punk chants break out once again. Heyman introduces a video recap of what happened with Lesnar and Undertaker last week on RAW. Lesnar has a little wrap around his hand where Undertaker stabbed him, by the way. When we return live from the video recap, an insanely loud CM Punk chant breaks out again. Lesnar takes the mic and the crowd boo’s.

Brock says unlike some people, he doesn’t make claims that he can’t back up. He says he thinks Undertaker attacked him last week because he’s scared of him. He says everyone has failed in attempting to conquer the streak. He lists some guys who tried and failed. He calls them all failures. He says at WrestleMania 30, the streak is going to get conquered by him. He throws the mic down.

Out of nowhere, Mark Henry’s music hits and out he comes. Lesnar attacks Henry. He slams him into the steps outside the ring. Lesnar goes over and clears off the announce table. Lesnar hoists Henry up and hits him with an F-5 through the table. The crowd barely reacts to that, and immediately start back up with loud CM Punk chants. Lesnar’s music hits and he and Heyman leave.

WWE Tag-Team Championships
The New Age Outlaws (c) vs. The Usos

WWE Tag-Team Championship action is up next. On that note, we head to our first commercial break of the evening. When we return from commercial, a graphic airs explaining that this year’s WWE Hall Of Fame ceremony will air live on the WWE Network.

We shoot back live to the arena and Justin Roberts announces that this match is for the WWE Tag-Team Championships. “Oh, you didn’t know?!” Road Dogg and Billy Gunn, The New Age Outlaws, make their way to the ring in WrestleMania jerseys. Road Dogg gets in the ring and says he doesn’t think Chicago is worthy of hearing his catchphrases. The Usos theme music hits and out they come.

The bell rings and Jey Uso and The Road Dogg start things off. The CM Punk chants immediately start up as Uso goes to work on Road Dogg. Road Dogg reverses Uso and slams him upside down in the corner. Road Dogg tags in Gunn and Gunn picks up where he left off, hammering away at Jey in the center of the ring. Gunn blasts Uso a few times and then tags Road Dogg back in. Another loud CM Punk chant breaks out as Uso reverses Road Dogg in the corner and fires away with punches. Road Dogg catches Uso coming off the ropes with a big clothesline to slow his momentum down. Road Dogg throws Uso over the top as another loud CM Punk chant breaks out. We head to a mid-match commercial.

When we return from commercial, Road Dogg has Uso in a headlock and Uso is trying to fight his way out. Road Dogg immediately tags in Gunn and Gunn goes to work on Uso. Uso hits a big spin kick out of nowhere on Road Dogg and now both guys are down. The entire arena is clapping and encouraging Jey to make the tag. He does. Jimmy Uso takes the hot tag and is flooring Road Dogg and Gunn. Uso hits a big Samoan Drop on Gunn. Road Dogg tries interfering but Uso gets him down as well. Uso hits the ropes but Gunn catches him coming off with a big tilt-a-whirl slam.

Gunn goes for the FameAsser but Uso avoids it. He superkicks Road Dogg off the apron and makes the tag as he dives out onto him. The other Uso comes in and blasts Gunn. He follows up with a big top-rope splash. 1-2-3. The Usos win. We have new WWE Tag-Team Champions.

Winners and NEW WWE Tag-Team Champions: The Usos

Backstage: WWE Divas Drool Over Aaron Paul

After a preview for the Need For Speed movie, we shoot backstage and a bunch of the WWE Divas are talking about Aaron Paul. They make a lame sex joke and then we go to commercial.

Big E. vs. Cesaro

When we return from commercial, WWE Intercontinental Champion Big E. is finishing up his entrance. The bell rings and we see Cesaro is his opponent. Immediately Cesaro does an impressive power spot, slamming Big E. down as the crowd pops. Big E. quickly turns the tide and spears him in the corner of the ring. Cesaro reverses the momentum and throws Big E. out to the floor. When he comes back in the ring, Cesaro immediately grabs Big E. by the legs and does his Cesaro Swing to the big man. He swings him about ten times or so. Out of nowhere, Jack Swagger comes in and hits a Swagger Bomb on Big E. The referee calls for the bell. Cesaro is disqualified.

Winner via Disqualification: Big E.

After The Match:

After the match, Cesaro looks pissed and is talking to Zeb Colter while Swagger paces out on the floor. Cesaro turns around right into a Big Ending from Big E. Colter looks confused as he stares at Cesaro down in the ring and Swagger shouting from the floor.
