The crowd finally calms down so Bret can speak. Bret says last time he was in Montreal was one of the darkest days but also one of the proudest. Bret thanks the Montreal fans. Cult of Personality hits and out comes WWE Champion CM Punk.
Punk talks about Bret's book and says he doesn't have the ego to every write a book about himself. Punk asks what if he would have wrestled Bret at the Survivor Series instead of Shawn Michaels. Bret says it wouldn't have mattered. Bret says the fans know Bret would have tied Punk up like a pretzel in the Sharpshooter. Punk says he doesn't believe Bret and Bret doesn't even believe himself. Punk says he is the best. He wouldn't have needed Vince McMahon to screw anyone for him. Punk says Vince would have never screwed Bret, the precious Attitude era would have never been born and he would have jumped ship to WCW so WWE would be dead by now. Bret mocks Punk's line and says he's the best there is, was and ever will be. Punk is amazed that Bret still calls himself that. Punk takes a shot at Jerry Lawler. Bret says at least Lawler never walked out of the ring like a coward. Bret shows us footage from last week when Punk laid out Lawler and took the night off.
They also show the footage of Punk driving off with Paul Heyman. Punk says he was in his hometown and returned to the arena to get some things he forgot when he saw John Cena out there. Punk wonders if Cena is in the back watching right now. Punk gets in Bret's face and wonders if Cena is going to make the save for Bret tonight. They start arguing about respect now. Punk brings up that he's been WWE Champion longer than Bret ever was. Punk says on Sunday he will cement his legacy as greatest WWE Champion of all-time. Punks says Bret is over hyped and over rated. Punk says on Sunday he will put Cena to sleep. Bret makes a joke about Punk putting the fans to sleep and this upsets him. Punk says he is going to beat Cena into an empty shell of a man, just like Bret is. Punk drops the mic and exits the ring as the crowd chants "asshole" at him. Punk raises the belt up and screams best in the world as his music plays and he heads up the ramp.
- Still to come tonight, Bret will interview Cena in the ring. We go to commercial.
- The Twitter poll for tonight will let fans pick the opponent for CM Punk - Brodus Clay, Randy Orton or Jerry Lawler. The hashtag options are #PunkBrodus, #PunkLawler and #PunkOrton.
