Raw Results: August 25th, 2014

With Cena invoking his rematch clause against the “Beast” Brock Lesnar, Shawn along with Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair came to Raw to give their views on the WWE World Heavyweight Title picture. Now I thought it was going to be just on the Network and App (not sure if they were on there), the panel however did open the live show.

Michaels voiced his opinion claiming that after the beating Cena took at SummerSlam it might be time for the “Cenation Leader” to maybe think about hanging up the boots (trainers). Flair agreed with the “Heartbreak Kid” while Hogan disagreed (typical), the debate continued until the three Hall of Famers were interrupted by the former champ:

WWE Hall Of Fame Forum And The Return Of John Cena

As advertised, this week’s edition of WWE RAW opens up with the WWE Hall Of Fame Forum, which features Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels. Jerry Lawler is the announcer on commentary welcoming us to the show and reminding us of the John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar rematch at WWE Night Of Champions.

From there, we go to Michael Cole in the ring, who introduces the WWE Hall Of Famers. First out is “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan. Next out is the 16-time World Champion, Ric Flair. Finally, “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels makes his way to the ring.

In the ring, on top of a red carpet coverinng the mat is a RAW announcers table, which is where Hogan, Flair and HBK are seated. Cole brings up the Cena-Lesnar match at SummerSlam and the announced rematch at the upcoming Night Of Champions pay-per-view.

Cole asks HBK what Cena’s chances are of beating Lesnar in the rematch. Michaels says they aren’t good because it’s not happening. HBK talks about how himself and the two legends seated next to him eventually had to admit it was there time and they retired. He says it might be that time for Cena. Hogan disagrees, claiming that Cena can still go. Flair agrees with Michaels, saying he doesn’t “feel it” for Cena.

Michael Cole then asks for predictions. Hogan says he’s routing for Cena all the way on this one. Flair chimes in and says he likes John Cena too. HBK agrees with Flair, saying he too likes Cena but that’s not what they’re talking about. He says Cena doesn’t have a chance. Hogan goes to talk and Michaels interupts him. HBK talks about the beating Cena took and says he’ll never be the same man. Hogan says before HBK interupted him, he says Cena’s beaten Lesnar before and he will again.

As Flair and HBK sort of team up in disagreeing with Hogan and Hogan goes to defend Cena further, they are all interupted by Cena’s theme song. John Cena comes out and makes his way to the ring.

Cena talks about how everyone is talking about what happened to him at SummerSlam. As Cena pauses, the fans break out in “CM Punk” chants, which Cena actually stopped and allowed. Cena says he has the utmost respect for all three of the Hall Of Famers in the ring. Cena says he’s sick of all this talk about what he should do.

From there, Cena goes to reference the beating he took at SummerSlam. He says there’s no way to dance around this. He says SummerSlam was an ass-whooping. A 100-percent beat down. He agrees with HBK, who mentioned that you’re never the same after a beating like the one he took at SummerSlam.

Cena goes on to discuss why he wants to do it again. He says he doesn’t plan on doing it again. He says he’s going to bring the fight to Brock Lesnar at Night Of Champions. He says he’s not going to Night Of Champions to beat Brock Lesnar, he’s going there to beat Brock Lesnar’s ass. He drops the mic and walks off as his theme plays again. That ends the segment and we head to commercial.

I haven’t uploaded any digitals of screencaptures yet, I’ll be looking to get these up on the site by the end of the week when I get my hands on photoshop so I can tag the images. Once uploaded I’ll let all you guys know, I’ll also see if I can get my hands on a video of the panel too.
