Live from Montreal

by Achal Mohindra

Raw kicks of with WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hitman” Hart, Bret thanks the crowd, for 15 years its taken a long time to get here back to this arena and to come back to Montreal, bit speechless, dont
know what to say, so much has happened, last time I was here was one of the darkest days of my life, I appreciate the fans that have supported me and been in my heart for 15 years, I remember
those fans helped me through those dark days, stand proud of what I did that day, God Bless everyone here in Montreal.

WWE Champion CM Punk music hits and walks around Bret in the ring and says with all due respect Bret what has happened to you in 15 years has been written in your book, don’t have such an ego
but if I wrote a book it will be called What If, What if I faced you at 1997 WrestleMania, Bret says it doesn’t matter because I would knock you down and wrap you like a pretzel till you tap to the
Sharpshooter, CM Punk says I am the best in the world and don’t need Vince McMahon’s help, if Vince didn’t screw you then the WWE Attitude Era wouldn’t happened and I would have left it and WWE
would be dead, Bret says you are the best in the world or claim to be but I am the Best There Is, Best There Was and Best there Ever will be. CM Punk says you can call yourself King of England and
King of Memphis, (isn’t that right Jerry), Bret says don’t know what your gripe with Jerry Lawler, one thing Jerry Lawler always showed up, last week you walked out of your match with Sheamus
but returned and ambushed John Cena with your car and we saw Paul Heyman driving the car. (Titantron shows it) Punk says what can I say was in my hometown where champions are treated respectfully
and was enjoying my day off, I see John Cena in front of me and talking where is John Cena right now, is John Cena at the back watching whats happening, is John Cena going to walk out when John Cena
sees things happen, Bret says I came talk to the crowd and had no respect from you, CM Punk says you need to respect me because I am the WWE Champion, I will beat John Cena this Sunday to retain,
these people are like you over stated, over rated and over hyped, Brett says your putting this audience to sleep right now. Punk says at Night of Champions will turn John Cena into an empty shell of a man
exactly like you are, Punk drops the microphone and leaves the ring, (Asshole Chant fills arena).

Bret Hitman Hart Interviews John Cena. John Cena says thanks for the interview opportunity. Hart asks Cena about the feud with CM Punk is same as mine back in the day with Shawn Michaels.
My question is I see alot of myself in you, and I see a lot of CM Punk in Shawn Michaels, John Cena thanks Bret for mentioning John Cena in same sentence as Shawn Michaels & Bret Hart.
John Cena says I like how Montreal respect you as a Hall of Famer, as far as comparing Shawn to CM Punk, Shawn never walks out on people, CM Punk is insecure and tells you how good he is, Bret yourself
stand here and are respected, quite frankly CM Punk is desperate and delusional. Bret says my next question is what you going to do to shut that Phoney punk up. CM Punk comes to the ramp and says you
calling me phoney, John Cena says let me answer this you are phoney you can settle it by coming to the ring. CM Punk says the biggest phoney is casting judgment on the WWE Champion, Punk says I do what
I want and come out and defend myself against rampant and disrespect that almost breaks my heart seeing you sit in the ring, Cena & Hart are alike, you can sit here and you were both surpassed by someone
far superior than yourself, Cena in your case talking about myself and Bret in your case I am talking about Shawn Michaels, I am better than Shawn Michaels, Punk says you made Stone Cold tap out and
I am better than him and The Rock, we all saw what I did when he showed me disrespect. I am the best wrestler, talker, technician, brawler and I dont say it from insecurity but because I am it, that makes
me anything but a phoney, John Cena says that makes you conceited and hypocrite, Montreal is an honest city, for years been mentioned as a bizarre world, I will hit you in the face with a dose of truth,
for 300 days you have been champion, month after month you watched main events pass you buy, fact is there is no you, you have been here for many years and that was when microphone was turned silent,
you had convicted talk of change and you got it and the universe was lied to was changed but not by ice cream bars but becoming champion, in reference to success I went from underdog to favorite through
all of this and through the loss and humility I have done it, there is you and have changed your ideaology and stole the elbow drop of Randy Savage, not saying your not tough its around the WWE title, which doesn’t
define you as a champion, you are in jeopardy of losing your title this Sunday at Night of Champions. John Cena speaks French and CM Punk says you have lowered yourself to there level by speaking there
languages, the fans are here to listen and you need to earn respect and in french I said you think you will win but I am going to kick your ass.
CM Punk goes to attack Bret Hart but John Cena stops him, Cena removes his top and says bring it, then goes to hit Bret Hart but Bret Hart punches him and sends him out the ring.
