WWE RAW Results (8/19) – John Cena’s Announcement, Punk Fights Axel, Orton’s Championship Coronation

Bill Pritchard

Paul Heyman is introduced and he says last night CM Punk was beaten by Brock Lesnar, and he gave Punk a chance to prove his worth and Punk did that. He says Punk gave Brock everything he could handle, and he asks where they go from there and he says it's time to end the family feud. Heyman says he's been more of a father than Punk's own father, and Brock smacked some sense into Punk last night, so Heyman says he forgives him. Heyman says Punk can apologize and they will be able to work together again, and they can put this behind them and rise even higher than before. He says he still loves Punk and will guide him to the WWE Championship, and he get Punk to the Wrestlemania main event so they can be the best in the world.
