WWE Monday Night Raw Live Coverage October 10, 2011
Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, OK
The show opens with a shot of the crowd. No opening music video, fireworks and announce team. The backstage area is completely empty as HHH makes his way to the ring. HHH notes at least he and the fans showed up. He can’t believe everyone walked out last week. Says they didn’t walk out on him but the fans as he makes fun of the wrestlers who are rallying outside the building. He asks the fans if he should step down so the wrestlers will come back and the fans chant “NO”. He says he will not be blackmailed and he will not quit. HHH says he will take his suit off and wrestle a broom stick for two hours and knows the broom stick will give him a better match than most of the wrestlers in the back.
John Cena comes out and says everyone who walked contacted him personally and asked him to side with them while HHH never even sent him a text message asking him to stay. Says HHH is his boss and he is staying because he loves Raw and loves the chaos and his loyalty is with the fans.
Sheamus comes to the ring and references to when he attacked HHH with a lead pipe the night after Wrestlemania 26. If anyone had the right to sue it would be HHH but instead, HHH gave him a beating. He respects HHH for handling it like a man. Says he didn’t leave his family to sit in a parking lot and he showed up to be apart of RAW!
CM Punk comes out next and says he feels like this is all his fault because he is the one who made walking out look cool. Says unlike everyone else, he did not break his contract. He knows someone in the company does not want him to be WWE champion but problems should be handled in the ring and thrives on the unsafe work environment because this is professional wrestling and not Ballet. Makes reference to Kevin Nash slowly running in through the crowd to mess with his matches.
