Ups And 8 Downs From Last Night's WWE Raw (Feb 20)

Come on Punk, where you at? But both men almost shared a moment together in a WWE ring Monday night.

After last week's barn-burner of an episode of Raw, you would have to expect that WWE's flagship show would fall back to Earth a little bit Monday night.

It's been almost a year since The Rock appeared on WWE TV, and CM Punk left the company more than three years ago.

The Rock didn't show up on the February 20 edition of "Monday Night Raw", but he was in attendance at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The film crew was there to film the final scene of the movie, which depicts Paige's debut match in WWE against former champion AJ Lee.

WWE physician Chris Amann later filed a lawsuit against Punk and Colt Cabana for slander, claiming they hurt his "standing in the medical profession" and caused him personal harm.

Check out some footage and photos of The Rock and Vince McMahon's segment before the live crowd prior to RAW captured by fans in attendance via the following tweets. Wanting to please the fans, Johnson took it a step further and tried to Facetime CM Punk, but was unsuccessful. At one point during the promo, somebody was sent down to ringside to ask The Rock to stop calling CM Punk. And though he didn't answer, The Rock - and the entire Staples Center in Los Angeles - left him a voicemail.

As many of you know, WWE and CM Punk have been at odds ever since Punk left the company in January of 2014.
