After the match, Del Rio re-applied the hold, prompting CM Punk to come out to a huge pop. Del Rio says that Punk didn't have the guts to ask him for a title match, and forced him to give him the title shot like a coward. Del Rio called Punk and the crowd "pathetic and ugly," and no one cared about them or Punk. Loud "CM Punk" chants.
Punk takes the mic and says that he didn't know that he had to get in line and properly ask for a title shot. He then noted that Del Rio became champ by cashing in MITB after Kevin Nash powerbombed him at SummerSlam, and then was beaten by Del Rio after being hit in the head with a lead pipe at Hell In A Cell. Del Rio said that Punk needs to treat him with respect since he's WWE Champion. Punk said he is champion, but he is also one dimensional and fans fast-forward Del Rio on their DVR when he's on. Punk said that not only is he going to beat Del Rio at Survivor Series, but he's going to make the WWE Championship interesting again. Del Rio said that he's champion, so he's best in the world and asks Punk to cancel the match at Survivor Series. Punk sarcastically thinks about it, and responds with an emphatic "No!" Del Rio attacks Punk and beats him down. Del Rio goes for the arm-bar, but Punk gets out and goes for the Anaconda vice, but Rodriguez intervenes. Del Rio runs off, and Rodriguez gets nailed with a GTS to end the segment.

Kelly Kelly is shown backstage heading to the ring.
Jerry Lawler is in the ring and introduces Kelly Kelly, and notes that she will be on the cover of Maxim magazine, which is out next week. Kelly takes the mic and talks about how she's grown up with WWE and that despite her ups and downs in the company, she always strived to be the best. She is interrupted by Beth Phoenix and Natalya, who are mocking Kelly's speech and compare her to a Barbie doll. They enter the ring, and Kelly said that he wouldn't interrupt them if they were on the cover of National Geographic. They brush the insult off and say that a WWE Diva needs to be more than a pretty face and they threaten Kelly, asking her to cry. Alicia Fox and Eve quickly come in, and Phoenix and Natalya retreat. Kelly's Maxim cover is then revealed, and she is congratulated by Kelly and Fox.
Kevin Nash's return is up next.
John Laurinaitis comes out and introduces his newest Superstar signing, at the behest of Triple H, Kevin Nash. Nash says he doesn't owe anyone an explanation. He said he should have buried Triple H in 1995, but Shawn Michaels stopped him and he let HHH into their "clique." Nash said that HHH won him over, and that they had a real friendship. He noted that he got the biggest pop at the Rumble earlier this year and asked Triple H to put the band back together, but he didn't get a response. He said he was betrayed, and he wouldn't be anything without Nash. Nash said that Triple H is still the measuring stick around here, and scoffs at being offered a Legends contract, saying that he could be world champion on any given night. He said it felt good to hit him with the sledgehammer, and that as far as he's concerned, "that's how you play the game."
