Winner: CM Punk
Up on the titantron, Jericho is applauding Punk. Jericho says he see straight through Punk, and that he found out a secret about Punk. 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. Jericho says that once he beats Punk at WrestleMania, Punk's going to want to take a drink, and another, and another. He says Punk will be recognized just like his father was, a pathetic drunk. Punk looks emotional in the ring as he leaves to the fans chanting his name.
We come back to a David Otunga attorney plug. I'd hire him if you're in legal trouble.
