What Happened After WWE Raw Went Off The Air: CM Punk Speech & Dark Match Main Event
Thanks to Kevin Lotito who attended WWE Raw in Chicago, Illinois for the following report on what happened after the television show went off the air:
C.M. Punk came out did the Yes! chant to Daniel Bryan and patted him off. Awesome. Punk took the mic and asked how everyone was doing. He said he felt like garbage, but we were still here and he’s not done. And he did not care who came down the ring because he had a lot left in him and he was ready to issue out a Chicago beatdown and all his pieces want to fight. So let’s do it now.
Paul Heyman, Ryback, and Curtis Axel all came out and surrounded the ring. Jerry Lawler gave Punk a kendo stick. Punk beat down Axel and Ryback with the kendo stick and played to the crowd. He called for Paul Heyman. Punk held Heyman down with his foot in the ring and hit him twice in the back with the kendo stick before Axel and Ryback came back into the ring.
Ryback threw Axel into Punk in the corner, but he missed and Axel went outside the ring. He kicked Ryback and put him down. Punk grabbed a chair and hit Ryback twice as Ryback fled. Then he threw Axel into the barricade and then the ring to a loud GTS chant. Punk hit Axel with the chair, played to the GTS, and hit it and counted himself pinning Axel to close the show and send us home happy.
Side note: Someone threw him a White Sox hoodie. Punk frowned, shook his head, and threw it back. Someone threw him a Blackhawks Jonathan Toews jersey with the tag still on it. It was offered to Punk as a gift, which he accepted.
