- Cole leads us into a video package looking back at RAW 1000.
Punk says he had a RAW moment last week bigger than most people's WrestleMania moments. He wants to explain something before he gets into why he did what he did to The Rock. Punk says the way RAW 1000 went off the air left a bad taste in his mouth. Punk brings up Lawler's quote - "CM Punk has turned his back on the WWE Universe." Punk goes to ringside where Lawler is seated. Punk sits the WWE Title on the announcers table and sits cross legged on top of it, in front of Lawler. Punk says he is used to bad commentary but asks how Lawler jumped to such a bad conclusion. Punk says if anything, Lawler turned his back on Punk because the last time he checked, The Rock wasn't the WWE Universe. Punk calls Rock an extremely charismatic, deranged movie star. Punk says Rock disrespected him. Punk says Rock acted like he was invisible when he went into his tired schtick on Daniel Bryan. Punk says Rock is lucky he didn't hurt him right then and there when he was first disrespected. Punk says Rock tried to make RAW 1000 all about him and that's when Punk showed him the kind of man he will be dealing with at Royal Rumble. Punk says this isn't ballet, this is WWE and he is it's champion. Punk is still seated in front of Lawler on the table. Punk brings up how Rock has been quiet for a week. Punk accuses Lawler of having an agenda and spinning it. Punk says he ended RAW 1000 like every issue should end - with the spotlight on the WWE Champion, the best wrestler in the world. Big Show's music hits and out he comes.
Punk says Show must have came to steal the spotlight too. Show says the end of RAW 1000 was actually all about him. Show says he's the one who cost John Cena the WWE Title and caused him to fail at cashing in Money in the Bank. Show says he knocked out Cena and Punk still couldn't beat him. Show says Punk would have tapped out in the STF if it weren't for him. Show says the only reason Punk is still WWE Champion is because of him. Show vows that he will be the next WWE Champion. The crowd boos and Punk laughs at him. Punk says he is the only one winning anything between them two. John Cena's music hits and out he comes running to the ring. Cena unloads on Big Show as Punk watches. Show pushes him away and rolls out of the ring. Cena is hype as Show looks on from the floor and Punk leans against the ropes watching, shaking his head. Justin Roberts introduces AJ Lee and out comes the General Manager.
For tonight's main event, AJ announces Show vs. Cena with the winner facing CM Punk at SummerSlam. AJ leaves as everyone has words.
