Raw Results 09/03/12

Raw Results from Chicago, IL:

When Raw opened Cole showed footage of how Jerry Lawler never made it out for his entrance on commentary before the show.  They showed backstage footage of CM Punk attacking Lawler, with numerous referees restraining him.  Lawler got up and tried to go at Punk who delivered a big boot kick to the face and then another while he was down, before refs backed him away.

The World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus arrived out to the ring to start the show and said the party never ends in Chicago, but it will end for one Alberto Del Rio.  CM Punk's music hit and he came out to interrupt Sheamus.  Punk told Sheamus not to try to talk to his hometown because they can't relate to him, they can relate to a guy like Punk who's from there.  Punk said the cameras didn't show backstage that Lawler tried to attack him from behind.  Punk said Lawler got what he deserved Chicago style.  Punk talked about teaching Lawler a lesson in respect in the cage last week until a white knight named "John Cena" intervened.  The Chicago crowd was clearly behind Punk tonight as he asked them if he turned his back on them and they chanted "No, No, No!"

Sheamus talked about Punk interrupting him which was just what Punk complained about Rock doing to him.  Sheamus said the difference was Rock had the guts to get in the ring.  Punk said he already layed out one goon tonight so Sheamus shouldn't push it.  AJ came out to interrupt and then announced she came up with some great matches.  One would have the challengers for the NOC title matches against each other: Cena vs. Del Rio.  The other would put Punk vs Sheamus in a champion vs. champion match.  AJ skipped down to the ring and around it, then back up the ramp and backstage.

Dolph Ziggler defeated Randy Orton by pinfall.  In the match, Orton had control and hit his DDT from the middle ropes.  He prepared for the RKO, but Ziggler managed to block it.  Orton rolled him up for a pinfall, with Ziggler reversing it into his own pinfall.  Ziggler secured Orton's tights to make sure he got the pin.  Post-match, As Ziggler and Vickie were heading backstage, WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz comes down to ringside to join Michael Cole on commentary.

They had a new anger management skit with Daniel Bryan and Kane having to show their anger collages off.  Bryan's was a sheet of paper with YES! and NO! written all over it.  He told the group he can't take the chants anymore.  Kane showed his paper and it was blank.  The doctor asked if that's how Kane feels inside.  Kane asked if they want to see how he feels.  He crushed up his paper and threw it in a trash can, then made the can explode with fire.  The teacher said they'd move on to talking about their families next.

Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara defeated Cody Rhodes & Tensai via pinfall.  Late in this one, Rey hit 619 on Tensai with Cara following up with a missile dropkick.  Later, Cody lays out Mysterio from behind for a near fall.  Rey eventually hits a 619 on Cody which he hits, before tagging in Sin Cara to hit his leaping move off the top for the pin on Cody.

They showed another anger management segment where Daniel Bryan had to fall backwards and trust Kane to catch him.  Bryan was hesitant but then went for it.  Kane actually caught him.  The instructor asks them next to work together and catch Harold.  Bryan and Kane both let Harold fall and hit the ground.  Bryan tells Kane he trusts him and thinks he finally understands him.

CM Punk vs. Sheamus ends with a no decision as Punk decided to leave before the match.  Punk came to the ring and said since it's Labor Day a lot of people in Chicago probably took the day off, so they'll respect his decision to do the same.  He turns and walks out of the ring, then holds the title belt up at the bottom of the ramp.  Punk walks up the ramp and backstage.  Sheamus gets on the mic upset saying Punk just disrespected all the fans who wanted to see this matchup.

Another anger management session was shown.  This time Bryan said he thinks he is past his anger issues.  He tells Kane he will give him a rematch from SummerSlam any time he wants.  Kane thanks him saying one day he'll be happy to accept and do his best not to "eviscerate" Bryan.  Bryan gets irked by the comment saying how does he know he wouldn't tap out.  The two get in each others' face, and Harold intervenes.  They both turn and say "Shut up Harold!" causing him to leave the room.  Kane grabs Bryan by the throat.  The doctor/teacher finally loses it screaming at them both before leaving the room.  Bryan and Kane seem stunned by it.
