- We're live from the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina as Michael Cole welcomes us. He's joined by Jerry Lawler. We go right to the ring and Justin Roberts introduces John Laurinaitis.
Laurinaitis says Cena embarrassed him last week by calling him names. Laurinaitis says he lost his temper and when that happens, he goes into a fit of destruction that nobody can understand. Laurinaitis says Brock Lesnar injured Cena's arm and last week he injured his pride. Laurinaitis says he will finish the job at Over the Limit. Laurinaitis goes on and says he wasn't reprimanded by the Board of Directors because they realize he is tough but fair. Laurinaitis asked that Cena not be here live tonight. He wants Cena to do therapy on his elbow so he's good to go at Over the Limit and has no excuses.
Laurinaitis says Cena will be here live via satellite for an interview with Cole tonight. Laurinaitis says Cena will apologize for making fun of his voice. He puts WWE stars on notice and says whoever picks on his voice will be reprimanded. Laurinaitis talks about how he was injured in Japan, causing his voice to change. He shows photos of himself wrestling in Japan. Laurinaitis says he was the Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin and The Rock of Japan. Laurinaitis goes on but is interrupted by WWE Champion CM Punk.
Punk hits the ring and says Laurinaitis still has no clue about what the fans want. Punk says the fans do not want to see Johnny. He says this is all about Laurinaitis putting his chips on Brock Lesnar and Cena defeating him. Punk says Laurinaitis had Cena attacked and now he's here to pick the bones. Punk says Ace went to Japan because a joke... he came back and he's still a joke. Punk says he's going to beat Daniel Bryan at Over the Limit and then watch Cena beat Laurinaitis. Laurinaitis asks Punk if he's finished. Punk gets riled up and calls Laurinaitis stupid, ugly and says he has no friends. Punk calls Laurinaitis a giant tool box and now he's finished. Laurinaitis says if he wasn't training for his match against Cena, he would pummel Punk to the ground. Laurinaitis announces Punk vs. Lord Tensai for later tonight. Punk says he looks forward to the challenge, almost as much as he looks forward to Cena making him tap out at Over the Limit. Punk drops the mic and exits the ring.
