Jericho says Punk's been straightedge for a while, but he never explained the reason why. Jericho says it's because Punk's father was an alcoholic who let him down every step of the way, and Punk doesn't want to end up like him. Jericho says that punk will because it's in his blood, and that he's found something that terrifies Punk, and that it's ironic that the very alcohol that Punk craves is the reason his childhood was ruined. Jericho says the reason Punk has all his tatoos is because the pain of the tattoo needle was his solace from alcohol.

Punk looks emotional in the ring as he leaves to the fans chanting his name.

Suddenly, pyro goes off on the turnbuckles and the lights turn red, but Kane doesn't appear. Up next, we have The Rock concert. We get a plug for Christian's return this Friday with the Peep Show during commercials.
Back from the break, they plug Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and Undertaker being in the same ring next week. Also taking place is John Cena vs Mark Henry. The Rock then comes out to the biggest pop of the night, and he has his guitar with him. In the ring, which is set up for the concert, Rock does his usual taunts. Rock gets a non-WWE microphone and says that he's finally came back to Cleveland. Rock says tonight, we've broken a record. Tonight is the largest sell-out crowd in the history of the WWE. Really? Rock points to his wrist to show that there's no notes and he has goosebumps. . Saw a guy in the crowd holding a pro-Rock sign, but wearing Cena gear. Rock asks if we've seen Cena earlier, and that it wasn't John Cena. The John Cena we know is Vanilla Ice's illegitimate kid with a Telly Tubby. He then shows that graphic on the Titan Tron showing how Cena was created. Rock sits down and says tonight is about something special. He takes his guitar and says tonight isn't about some two minute rap because everybody knows that "Cleveland rocks." Rock starts to play and sings that Cena sucks, tells him to know his role and shut his mouth. I can't do this justice. Rock says something about Cena's menstrual clock, and says he'll shove his boot in Cena's ass, and calls him an Eminem wannabe. Pretty good stuff. Rock finishes by saying that Cleveland rocks, like he did a lot during the song. Rock then asks if they want to hear a true story and says he has a scoop from Cena's doctor. Through song, he says that Cena needs to quit begging for a rectal exam. Rock asks if we want to hear some gossip and says this is about Cena and Eve. He says through song that he saw Cena making out with Eve, and tugging on her weave.
