The Commentary: It’s going to be one wild year

ThunderStruck: Raw 1005 Analysis

Jerry Lawler gets in the ring to open the show and demands an apology from CM Punk. Punk comes out and refuses to apologize and says he was doing what he needed to do as WWE Champion. He challenges Lawler to a fight and lets him think about it. ^I’m sure a lot of people considered this segment boring, but I enjoy Jerry Lawler more in rivalry than on commentary. I know the guy is 60+ years of age, but that doesn’t mean he can’t jump in the ring andRead More

Y2J returned to WWE after not being seen for sixteen months in January of this year. HeRead More
