Welcome to Monday Night Raw and we are live from Sacramento California and tonight's commentary is provided by a three man team. Jim Ross, Michael Cole and JBL. And we kick things off with John Cena coming out and basically makes fun of the WWE tag team champions Team Hell No and the US Champion Antonio Cesaro as well as the divas. Cena said Vince McMahon's here, Arnold Schwarzenegger is tonight's Social Media Ambassador for the evening but none of that matters because as loud as this place is, Cena feels sorry for the WWE Universe because they don't have a voice because it was stolen by CM Punk. Once the voice of the voiceless, he is now the voice of the selfish and every day he holds that championship he garners respect but the choice for Hell In A Cell is not Cena's or the fans' it's his. Cena says when Punk comes out he hopes the fans let him know how they feel because whether it's one arm or one leg he will go into the Cell to fight for the championship. Fans turn their nose up at him because he's not a man and then tells Punk not to be a punk and face him in HIAC.
We then throw to footage from last week of Punk spoiling Jim Ross' appreciation night

Mr. McMahon then appears on the titantron and says Brodus can take the gang and dance out of the ring because coming up next is Mr. McMahon's State Of The WWE address
Vince McMahon State Of WWE Address
McMahon says we just saw two grown men with the Funkadactyls dancing with a child. But there's room for that in WWE Because we have action here in WWE. People want to see great athletes compete and take on all comers, they want to see the best of the best. CM Punk then comes out with Paul Heyman. McMahon calls Punk's t-shirt ugly and says Punk comes out and disrespects him. Punk says disrespect is having to listen to McMahon talk about what fans want to see, talking about the best without mentioning him and Punk said it's McMahon who left the GM in charge to allow Punk to decide whether or not to face John Cena at HIAC. Punk says the WWE Universe doesn't respect him, no one in the back respects him and then asks McMahon if he respects him. McMahon respects Punk's reign but doesn't respect that he's a Paul Heyman guy and says he's not a CM Punk guy. Punk says McMahon should be a Punk guy because he's the WWE Champion he's not a spoke on the wheel he's the wheel. He's the best thing McMahon's got. Punk says McMahon should be on his knees like everyone around the world showing him appreciation and says there should be CM Punk appreciation night. Punk says if he doesn't get the appreciation he deserves he's going to do what he did a year ago and hightail it out of the WWE. Punk says he's indispensable and the reason people are here. McMahon says what makes WWE a success is the WWE Universe. McMahon listens to the WWE Universe and what they're saying and says right now the Universe is saying someone needs to shut Punk's mouth. How dare Punk call himself the best in the world. He's nowhere near men like Andre The Giant, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Triple H and Stone Cold Steve Austin. Punk says he's nothing like Austin because he's made it to the top. Austin made it to the top by beating up a clueless inept millionaire. Punk says it's a slap in his face when he walks out and people treat him the way they do and the way McMahon does and he's been slapping Punk in the face for years. Punk then slaps McMahon sending him to the mat. McMahon says he'd fire Punk but that'd be too easy and says tonight Punk will fight McMahon.
