Raw Results from Anaheim, CA:

Raw opened with pyro and no theme video. Michael Cole and Josh Matthews were on hand for commentary. Tonight the special guest host will be announced for Wrestlemania 27. Also, all six men in the upcoming Raw Elimination Chamber will battle in singles matches. John Cena arrived out for the first of those matches, against CM Punk. The Raw GM announced there must be a winner in this match, following last week's finish between them.

Cena talked about how romantic it was for all the guys in the audience to bring their lovers to a WWE event. He mentioned Wrestlemania 27 coming up and how tonight will be big. Cena talked about potential hosts for WM27 like Lady Gaga and Sammi of "Jersey Shore." Cena said the host is actually Michael Cole, then made jokes about how Cole has a special attraction to The Miz and Alex Riley. Cena also brought up how CM Punk will have to go inside the Elimination Chamber alone, without Nexus.

That brought Punk out to the ramp with a mic. Punk reminded Cena in their 2 matches, he's been 2 and 0. Punk talked about being a good person, and even there, good things happen to good people.

John Cena vs. CM Punk

A winner would have to be declared in tonight's match, just six days ahead of Elimination Chamber. Cole noted that New Nexus is banned from ringside tonight.

Late in the match, Cena went for the AA, but Punk grabbed the top rope and then got onto the apron area. Cena rammed him in the gut and Punk fell to the floor. While down outside, an arm reached out from under the ring with a steel chair. The arm had two Nexus bands on it. Punk slid the chair into the ring and the ref became distracted trying to remove the chair. The arm under the ring handed Punk a wrench, which Punk used to bash Cena in the face through the ropes. With Cena out of it, Punk got into the ring, picked up Cena on his shoulders and hit GTS for the win.

Post-match, Matthews and Cole reviewed the finish multiple times as Punk backed up the ramp. A dazed Cena sat up in the ring.

They showed highlights from two weeks ago where 2011 Royal Rumble winner, Alberto Del Rio, chose his WM27 opponent. He told Edge he'd go after the World Heavyweight Championship, right before attacking Edge in the ring with a guitar.

Ricardo Rodriguez announced Del Rio in Spanish as Del Rio drove out in another fancy Bentley. Matthews and Cole reviewed this Sunday's competitors for the Elimination Chamber (Smackdown): Kane, Ziggler, Edge, Mysterio, McIntyre and Barrett.

Suddenly, Edge's theme music started up and out came the Rated-R Superstar to Del Rio's surprise. Edge brought up how Del Rio attacked him with a guitar two weeks ago on Raw. Edge got in the ring, walked up to Del Rio and said he's got a destiny too. He asked if he wanted to know what it is, then tackled Del Rio to the mat to beat up. Edge got up in the corner ready for a Spear. Ricardo Rodriguez got on the apron to distract, so Edge rushed over and punched him off.

Edge went to grab Del Rio through the ropes, but Del Rio punched him. As Del Rio got on the apron, Edge rushed over and rammed into Del Rio to knock him off the apron. Suddenly, "Excuse Me!" was heard several times as Vickie Guerrero arrived out. She said she was there to introduce the new World Heavyweight Champion, her boyfriend, Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler joined her on the stage. Cole talked about the end of Smackdown last Friday where Edge's Spear was banned in the title match against Ziggler.

Vickie said on Friday's Smackdown they will coronate Dolph Ziggler as the official Heavyweight Champion in San Diego. Vickie said Edge lost the title this past Friday night and he's about to lose his job. Vickie said she has proof that Edge is the one who assaulted Teddy Long. Vickie started cackling about it while Del Rio was laughing outside the ring.

The Lumberjills consisted of Maryse, Bella Twins, Alicia Fox, Melina, Tamina and Gail Kim. Cole noted this is sort of a rematch for Natalya who lost the title at the Royal Rumble.

At one point in the match, Eve tossed Natalya out of the ring near the Bella Twins. They started attacking Natalya and Melina, Maryse and Alicia came over to help. The face divas came over to brawl with them and Eve jumped off the apron to take out the heels. Maryse was laying on her back holding her face with a diva asking "are you OK?"

Horney rushed over and picked her up to spin her around. She dropped half of the chocolates out of the box.

Orton was shown walking backstage on his way to the next match against Sheamus.

Randy Orton vs. Sheamus

Cole mentioned during this match that he noticed the officials are giving a lot more leeway in the matches for physicality. Late in the match, Sheamus hit the Irish Curse backbreaker for a near fall. He put Orton up on the corner and landed the impressive Superplex. Both men were slow to get up from the mat, but Sheamus was first up.

Justin Roberts was in the ring and asked everyone to help welcome the host of Wrestlemania 27. Some strange music started with a light show, and then the arena went dark with lights shutting off one-by-one. A bunch of cloud and lightning effects went all over the Titantron then the arena went dark again. Suddenly, "If you smell what the Rock is cooking" came on the speakers and the crowd erupted. The Rock arrived out from backstage wearing a "Just Bring It" sleeveless T and shades. He paced back and forth on the ramp as the crowd roared for him.

Rock waited for several moments in the ring as the crowd continued with cheers and chants. He did his finally bit, saying he had finally returned to WWE Raw aka "home." The Rock said he has many nicknames including "The Great One," "The Most Electrifying Man in all of Sports Entertainment," and "The People's Champion."

Rock also took off his shades and spoke directly to the fans saying he wasn't back for the money or to promote a movie, but because of the fans. He cut another promo moments later saying that Justin Bieber was suggested as WM27 host, but The Rock said he's the only host for the job. He promised to layeth the Smackdown to someone at Wrestlemania, but asked who? Will it be The Miz. Rock mocked the "I'm Awesome" catch phrase saying it means he 100% completely sucks.

Rock said there's one more man who The Rock wants to see. Before he could say the name, the lights flashed and email sound chimed. Michael Cole stood up laughing as Rock got a puzzled look on his face. Cole asked for everyone's attention. Rock continued to stare at Cole, then got on the mic telling Cole there's no way he'll let him walk over to that laptop computer. He asked Cole if he thinks that. Cole was about to tell him what he thinks but Rock said "it doesn't matter what you think!" He told Cole "and I quote, know your role and shut your damn mouth!" Rock said he will post some pictures on of himself shining that laptop real nice and stickin that straight up Cole's candy ass. Rock told Cole he looked like a "drunk hobbit" and to sit down. Another "Rocky" chant started up.

Rock said there's a guy he saw when he left the business who started talking trash when he left. Rock said he thought the guy was cool and his name was John cena. Fans started up a "Cena sucks" chant. Rock then asked if WWE has gone from the powerful "Austin 3:16" to the "Can you Smell What the Rock is Cooking?" to "You Can't See Me" which he said in a whiny mocking voice. Rock said everyone can see his monkey ass because of the colorful shirts he wears around looking like a big bowl of fruity pebbles.

The Rock said he looks forward to seeing The Miz and John cena at Wrestlemania 27. He finished off the promo with his legendary catch phrase "If you smell what the Rock is cooking!" Rock posed in the ring a bit then walked up the ramp patting kids on the head. Josh Matthews told fans to get more info at as the show closed.
