Vince McMahon's music hits and we're off! McMahon heads to the ring in a horrendous suit with John Laurinaitis. The locker room is shown backstage watching on a monitor. A "CM Punk" chant breaks out. McMahon says that he will never say Punk's name, and that fans are chanting for a man who walked out on them and is the biggest ingrate he's ever seen. Vince says there is no one man who is bigger than WWE, not Hogan, Bret, Rock or Austin, and WWE is a global promotional juggernaut that cannot be stopped, and tonight there will be an 8 man tournament to crown a new WWE Champion. Rey Mysterio will face Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger will face R-Truth, Kofi Kingston will face Alberto Del Rio and Alex Riley will face The Miz in tournament matches.
McMahon brings up John Cena not being in the tournament. McMahon said he warned Cena that there would be severe consequences, and there will be severe consequences and tonight will be a night that we will always remember. He then thanked everyone for coming.
