Day After Raw: Your Tweets for April 24, 2012
The Devil's Favorite Demon put his pops on ice, the Divas division crowned a new champion, and a WWE Hall of Famer threw a Rated-R wrench into John Cena's contract signing with Brock Lesnar. See what you, the WWE Universe, had to say about all this and more in WWE.com's Day After Raw!
Poor Paul Bearer can't catch a break. Last time we saw Kane's beleaguered papa, he was being wheeled around and pelted with pizza pies by Edge. This time it was Randy Orton who kidnapped Bearer (again in a wheelchair), and rolled him into a giant walk-in freezer as payback for Kane's assault of Randy's pa, WWE Hall of Famer "Cowboy" Bob Orton. After brawling with Orton on the entrance ramp, The Big Red Monster eventually made his way back to the icebox to retrieve his father, only to give him, quite literally, the cold shoulder by rolling him right back in the freezer. What's cooler than being cool? Ice cold.
@MrsZigglesworth: Paul Bearer in a wheelchair the same show Edge attends. Coincidence? I think not. #RAW
@GetterOne @WWE Silly Randy Orton. He's been buried in cement and dropped 50 ft in a wheelchair. To Paul Bearer a freezer is nothing. #RAW
@OfficialJohnD I wonder if Paul Bearer had any #WWE ice cream bars in that freezer #WWE #RAW
@EMINEMsMnMs Most Attitude Era thing thats happened since the Attitude Era. Right there. Paul Bearer and Kane. #RAW
@BeerBaron4life: Kane is the Nightman. He won't be paying the Troll Toll to save Paul Bearer tonight. #RAW #WeAreWrestling
@bondbarton: " So.... did anyone remember to take Paul Bearer out of the walk-in freezer? #RAW"
Livin' On the Edge
If there was ever a Superstar to give John Cena a pep talk as he heads into his Extreme Rules Match against Brock Lesnar this Sunday, it's WWE Hall of Famer Edge. The Rated-R Superstar stormed into Raw SuperShow, cutting off Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Raw and SmackDown GM John Laurinaitis mid-sentence and delivering a no-holds-barred critique of the slumping Cenation leader that had the WWE Universe roaring in approval. We missed you, Edge.
@TheHistoryofWWE Fantastic promo by Edge. Hey Edge, could you do that like ... every week? @WWE #Raw
@WWERawGM WWE Hall of Famer or not, Edge had no right to interrupt me. I don't get it. I've always been more of a @Christian4Peeps fan anyway. #Raw
@SaifQuadri EDGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #SaveReksAndHawkins #Raw
@Itaku Seeing Edge live tonight on #RAW made my day. Really awesome RAW.
@theshartcast Marked out big time during the return of Edge. #Raw
@ProudCeNation_Edge's speech will definitely motivate Cena. #Raw
@WWEcritic1 @WWE Brock Lesnar is in it to get paid. Edge and @JohnCena do it because its who they are. #RAW #WWE #WWEcritic1 #savereksandhawkins

@WOZ93 @WWE #Raw hope John cena will WAKE UP like Edge said!!! He needs to in order to beat Brock lesnar Sunday
Walk the Line
The WWE Universe thought they'd finally gotten a glimpse of "CM Drunk" last night when the WWE Champion seemingly knocked back a bottle of booze that Chris Jericho had sent to The Second City Saint's locker room. The No. 1 contender finagled Punk into a public field sobriety test where, if he failed, he'd be stripped of the title and lose it to Jericho. A wobbly-looking Punk slurred and stumbled his way through the first half of the test, but Jericho's excitement was dampened when the champ revealed he'd just been playing possum. The WWE Universe's excitement, on the other hand, was not, and Punk quickly won some of the biggest props of the night.
@James_Varga CM Punk is a regifter! George Costanza does not approve. #RAW
@TheManchild6789 I love CM Punk paying tribute to Ric Flair WWWOOOOO! #raw #wwe
@AshDolan16 I disapprove of Detroit's Law Enforcement. They go after CM Punk for drunk in public, when Paul Bearer has froze to death in a freezer #Raw
