He's beaten everyone that stepped in front of him, including Daniel Bryan last night. Punk talks about how confused AJ Lee has been. Punk talks about the 1000th RAW and says a guy who looks like him would have never been on that first episode of RAW. He definitely wouldn't have been standing there in his 8th month as WWE Champion. Punk goes on but is interrupted by Big Show.
Big Show mocks Punk's speech and the crowd starts to tell him he sucks. Show talks about how John Cena got lucky with the briefcase handle last night. Show says if he won, he would cash in right now and take the WWE Title. Punk picks on Big Show for always losing. Punk says Show has the size and the strength but he just lost. They go on and Show reminds Punk that John Cena could cash in on him tonight once Show wins their main event match. Show drops the mic and walks off as Punk takes in what he just said.
