What happened when RAW after WrestleMania went OFF the air? CM Punk delivers passionate promo to the crowd and Pat McAfee leads Happy Birthday sing-a-long to a WWE legend

RAW after WrestleMania delivered plenty for expectant fans who hoped to see returns and debuts in the new Triple H-led era.

The show featured The Rock promising to return to the company to face Cody Rhodes and John Cena emerging a surprise tag team partner for the Awesome Truth.

Fans were also treated to a pair of debuts from NXT in champions Ilja Dragunov and Roxanne Perez before announcing that the WWE draft will go down on April 26 and 29 later this month.

Jey Uso also emerged as the number one contender to Damien Priest’s newly won WWE world heavyweight title, but he had a little help from CM Punk.

Speaking of CM Punk, let’s get into what happened after the show went off the air:

CM Punk talks to the crowd

It’s quite wild to see CM Punk doing the ‘send them home happy’ promo for WWE these days – hard to imagine a year ago! But, here we are.

Punk thanked the fans and the city of Philadelphia for a record-breaking WrestleMania weekend.  He talked about how he used to live and work in the city before making it to WWE.

He put over Jey Uso who was stood alongside him in the ring, but the most interesting thing he said came right at the end.

‘One thing before I go, I’m gonna sign these [shoes] and we’re going to throw them to two lucky people. I promise you this Philadelphia: The next time I’m back here I’m gonna have my boots on.’

Pat McAfee leads Happy birthday sing-a-long

In another off-air moment (although before the end of the show), Pat McAfee sang happy birthday to his co-commentator Michael Cole.

The funny thing is, it is not Cole’s birthday. Nor is he 60 like McAfee sings!

Cole is actually 55. McAfee is known to do this on occasion, but the crowd still joined in on the fun.
