Go-home show time.

 

Show starts with WWE Champion CM Punk coming out to the ring. He reminds us what’s going on at the ppv with he and Dolph Ziggler. He also tells us about Ziggler’s last three wins over him and how Laurinaitis had something to do with each one of those victories. Punk mentions how Laurinaitis finally admitted that he is going to screw Punk at the ppv. He then calls out Laurinaitis and wants to hear these things to his face. This gets a Punk chant. He doesn’t come out which gets Punk telling Laurinaitis he is going to find him. John Cena’s music hits and this dude comes out before Punk ended up leaving for the back. Punk said the wrong John came out. Cena then shits on Punk and tells him this is how it is done. Cena then talking shit about Laurinaitis and how he IS going to come out to give Ryder a rematch and Cena another match with Kane. How Laurinaitis will show up to step down as interim GM. Punk is still confused as why the fuck Cena came out. Laurinaitis finally comes out and says he stands by what he said last week and wont be intimated but Cena or Punk. Punk keeps teasing Laurinaitis to come to the ring. Laurinaitis makes Kane vs. Ryder for tonight, no holds barred and if Cena gets involved Ryder will never get another US Title shot. He sets a tag team match for right now…

Jericho is shown in the back smiling all excited. We’re apparently getting a Highlight Reel tonight?

Recap of Jericho’s match from last week before he is intro’d.

 

Jericho then comes out and is shushing up. This is getting mixed boos. Jericho runs out of the ring saying hold on just one second… yeah is finally speaks and its wasted on those words. He then goes to the back and comes back to the ring with one of those t-shirt guns. He does the whole t-shirt gun tease and the crowd is going ape shit over this shirt. Jericho then asks the camera man for the camera and starts to show the crowd as they cheer for a fucking t-shirt. Haha Jericho then points to the flat screen then shows footage of Jericho’s WWE career in its entirety up to his return. Jericho then shush’s us again and then finally he says “this Sunday at the Royal Rumble the world will end as we know it”.

 

Since they’ve been holding off they should have maybe waited for the Rumble for his first words but maybe this might make a few more people order the ppv.

 

They recap last September’s match between Ziggler and Ryder where Hugh Jackman got involved in, timely… well I guess it is since the DVD to that robot movie comes out tomorrow. Such pluggers.

 

Truth vs. Miz tonight, well that could have waiting for the ppv…

 

I love the Royal Rumble by the number recaps. Such a nerd for these facts. Haha! Best hype video they could have shown for the Rumble, they should have been showing this shit off on Television since December.

Miz in the back when Josh asks him about his match tonight. He shits on Big Show and Morrison, how he will headline WrestleMania again by winning the Rumble. Truth interrupts in “disguise”… he tells Miz he is #1 in being shitty in the ratings. They argue before Laurinaitis comes in all mad that he cant focus on his match later tonight.
