John Cena, Triple H & more saved Raw when the entire roster went on strike

John Cena, Triple H, CM Punk and Sheamus saved the day when the majority of the WWE roster went on strike during an episode of Monday Night Raw in 2011.

In one of the most memorable segments in Monday Night Raw history, the majority of the WWE roster went on strike, leaving CM Punk, Sheamus, Triple H and John Cena to save the day.

The October 10 episode of Raw in 2011 saw WWE COO Triple H come out to address the crowd, announcing that WWE wrestlers, announces, sound crew and more had walked out in protest.

The old adage of 'the show must go on' rang true here, as Triple H booked a match between Sheamus and John Cena, two of only three WWE Superstars to refuse to walk out of the show.

CM Punk was also on hand to help out, with Triple H asking his long-time rival to be the sole commentator for the show, promising he could say whatever he wanted.

With almost everyone out of the show, CM Punk had to pull double duty, also serving as the timekeeper for the match alongside his commentary duties.

Triple H pulled his weight too, serving as the referee for the match between Cena and Sheamus, all still while wearing his suit.

The match between Sheamus and John Cena didn't last too long though, with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon interrupting to address his son-in-law, Triple H.

McMahon stressed that the Board of Directors was concerned for the financial aspect of WWE, as such, he came to tell Triple H that he'd no longer be running Monday Night Raw.

Vince McMahon announced that John Laurinaitis, much to the chagrin of the crowd, had been appointed as the interim General Manager of WWE Raw, replacing Triple H.
