July 18, 2011
Green Bay, Wis.
Report by Justin Collins of Green Bay, PWTorch reader
As Raw was going off the air, there was a "Thank you, Vince" chant going on. Once Raw was off-air he said, "Thank You, thank you to all...but this is not on me...I don't like to point blame, but this is all on that son-of-a-bitch John Cena."
McMahon went on to say if this is was his last night in front of the people, then he was going out fighting. He took off his tie and jacket and called out Cena. Cena's music hit and he came out to the ring. Cena grabbed a mic and said, "I know you had a tough day at work today, but you don't want to fight me, just say your two cents and we'll go on our way."
Vince grabbed the mic and said "screw you" and back-hand slapped Cena's hat off. Cena just laughed and then vince shoved him. Cena started to retaliate and backed Vince into a corner when Miz, R-Truth, and Dolph Ziggler rushed the ring and started to dismantle Cena with Vince shouting instructions. Then, Evan Bourne, Zack Ryder, and Santino came in to help Cena.
Vince got back up the ramp and the faces managed to dispose of Truth and The Miz, who was still selling a big limp, leaving just Dolph, who was surrounded by Cena, Ryder, Santino, and Bourne. Dolph pleaded his case, but Cena knocked him down and gave him the Five Knuckle Shuffle followed by an Attitude Adjustment. Santino then followed up with The Cobra, Ryder with the Zack Attack, and, finally,, Bourne with Air Bourne.
Happenings Off Live TV
-- Before Raw went on the air, they showed the last five minutes of the MITB PPV to set up Vince McMahon to start the show. Just seconds before going on air, there was an announcement by the ring announcer that McMahon requested the WWE Universe refrain from saying or chanting C.M. Punk's name, which had everyone chanting "C-M-Punk" as Raw went on the air.
-- During a commercial break after the Del Rio tournament match, McMahon came out with a mic and the crowd started the Punk chant again, to which he repsonded, "C.M. Punk my ass." He then said, "You people spend your money on tickets and support someone who turns their back on you?...What cow pastures did you ingrates crawl out of?...you people suck." He then threw his mic down and left.
