Following this week's WWE RAW
telecast, Vince McMahon
and Triple H
came to the ring for "Jim Ross
Appreciation Night". We know that the locker-room came out afterwards and applauded Ross. There was also a pre-recorded video message from Jerry Lawler

presented JR with a "Voice of the WWE" award as well. CM Punk
then came out to "crash" the celebration.
Following the JR segment, Sheamus defeated CM Punk via DQ. No word on if this was taped for WWE "Main Event" as they didn't tape anything before the show. It's possible the weekly post-RAW dark matches will be the "Main Event" matches but we're not sure about that just yet.
We hope to have a more detailed recap and a video of the post-RAW segment shortly. Stay tuned.
