Off Air Reader Report From Raw Tonight

Nick Paglino

They let us in about 7:00 local time, maybe a little after. Lillian Garcia came out and did the ring announcing for the 2 dark matches.

Takeshi Morishima beat Charlie Haas in the 1st dark match.

William Regal defeated FCW’s Jake Hager in the 2nd match. Regal is a good worker but Hager threw his own weight out there tonight. Guy definitely looks like he has a future on RAW.

Post RAW Dark Match: CM Punk beat JBL to retain the World Title. After the match Punk went around the ring slapping hands with a bunch of people including his sister. He was then given mic time afterward and said how at Wrestlemania 22, which was in Chicago, he was an extra in the John Cena entrance holding a fake gun. He told himself one day he would be holding a World Title and 2 1/2 years later his dream came true and said that you should keep trying and in 2 1/2 years you too could be holding a championship belt. Punk then slapped a few more hands and hugs and even gave some to the Cubs players in attendance then he left.

RAW will be returning to Chicago on January 19th
