Raw starts out with a video recap of John Cena's pseudo-shoot promo last week. Michael Cole and Jerry "The King" Lawler welcome us to the show, and plug The Rock's return later tonight. Whoa, take me back to Earth, Raw is opening with Champion vs Champion match. CM Punk's music hits and the WWE Champion comes out to a good pop. We replay what happened last week on Smackdown during their match. Before Daniel Bryan comes out, Chris Jericho comes out with a stern look on his face. He makes his way into the ring with a microphone. Jericho says what he has to say is more important. He says Punk is an amazing performer, but he's just not as good as Jericho, nor is he the best in the world. Jericho never had to call himself the best in the world, the fans said it for him. He says he never had to write it on T-Shirts, the fans would write it on signs. Jericho says he's a part of the dying breed of performers that toured the world, becoming stars before they got to the WWE. A breed that cared more about their matches, than about politics. A breed that were given nothing, and took everything. Jericho says he has a bad reputation because of it, but he didn't care because he knew he was the best. Jericho says Punk is just like him, a rebel that became something more than he was thought to have become, but that's just because Punk wants to be Jericho. Punk stops him, but Jericho refuses. Punk says everyone is sick of listening, and says he knows how good Jericho is, everyone does, but his problem is that Jericho insinuates that he's been stolen from.
Punk says he's fought for everything he's earned, and Jericho wasn't the first to say he was the best. There was a guy they both watched when they were younger, his name was Bret Hart, the best there was, the best there is, and the best there ever will be. Punk asks if Jericho invented that, did he invent Hart being Canadian, did he invent Canada? Jericho says it's always a game to Punk, but he better take him seriously. Jericho says he's faced everyone, beaten everyone, won dozens of championships. Punk says he watches Jericho, and his body language screams inferiority. Punk asks who he's trying to prove he's the best to? Is it him, the fans, or maybe Jericho himself. He says Jericho's confidence has now become Jealously because Punk has surpassed everything Jericho has done. Punk says Jericho tries to place the blame on others, but it's all on him. Jericho is the best in the world at what he does, but Punk is the best wrestler in the world, and while Jericho leaves to be a rock star, Punk is here in the WWE, while Jericho is Dancing with Stars. Jericho says while he was doing all of that, all he could think of was Punk ripping him off. Jericho says all of this is just window dressing because he came back to the WWE for one reason, and that was to embarrass Punk at WrestleMania, and to take back what is his. Punk says that everyone points at the sign every year, but he's just going to point at his championship belt. Punk says they don't need any fancy entrances or pyro, the only thing they need is the two of them in a ring, and we'll find out who the best in the world is on April 1st. Punk says it won't be the end of the world at WrestleMania, just the end of Jericho's. Daniel Bryan then comes out for the advertised match, flanked by A.J. David Otunga, and John Laurinaitis.
