WWE RAW Results (8/22) – New Tag Champs, Punk vs Cena for NoC Title Shot

Bill Pritchard

 

Alberto Del Rio makes his way to the ring as clips of his first title defense are shown, and it is mentioned that Rey Mysterio will miss months of action due to Alberto's actions. He starts to say his name, but John Cena immediately interrupts, and runs to the ring to get in an irate Alberto's face. Cena says everyone knows him, and he is the man of destiny, but Cena wants to reintroduce himself to Alberto. He tells him he is the guy that will take the title away from him, and he is going to hurt him bad enough to send him packing. Cena says there is one guy that can go toe to toe with him, and Alberto is not CM Punk so he is going to whip his ass.

CM Punk comes out next and tells Cena this feels like a rerun, because once again Cena wants a title shot, but Punk beat him twice in a row when it counted. Alberto used his briefcase like he could have, but if anyone is getting a title shot, it's Punk, and Cena shouldn't make fun of anyone or their cars. Alberto stops them and tells them it is his time because he is the WWE Champion, but Punk tells him to stop interrupting him. He doesn't have a problem with how he cashed in, because Punk himself did it twice, although he did it better, but he does have a problem with HHH, Alberto and Kevin Nash all trying to screw him.

He knows that both he and Cena have had problems with HHH in the past, and he doesn't think it is a coincidence that someone told Nash to go take out the champion. Punk looks at Cena and says if he won the match he would have been taken out too, and he wants to officially cash in his rematch clause. Cena says he is getting his rematch first, and they argue back and forth, but Alberto tells them neither one will get a shot because he defended the title last week and he won't do it in Canada. HHH comes out before Alberto can finish talking, and he tells Alberto that he is not out there to protect him, and he won't face Punk or Cena. He has a match next, and tells him not to go anywhere, then addresses the rematch situation. He tells them they just can't cash it in, and he will leave it up to them to decide, when they face each other in tonight's main event.
