Cena thanks Bret for the opportunity to be interviewed. Bret says he sees a lot of himself in Cena and a lot of the old Shawn Michaels in Punk. Cena gets boos from the crowd when he goes to speak. A "you can't wrestle" chant breaks out. Cena admits he couldn't even lace Bret's boots. Cena says Punk is nothing but an insecure dude who has to always tell you how good he is. Cena says HBK earned respect because he stood for something. Bret asks Cena what he's going to do to shut Punk up. Bret calls Punk a phony. Punk appears and comes walking to the ramp. Punk has a problem with Bret calling him a phony. Cena chimes in and calls Punk a phony also. Cena says Punk can either stay up there or come to the ring.
Punk calls Cena the biggest phony in WWE history. Punk walks to the ring and enters while knocking Cena and Hart. Punk says you can't compare him to the old or the new Shawn Michaels because he is better than Michaels. Austin asks Bret if he remembers the hillbilly he made pass out at WrestleMania 13, Steve Austin. Punk says he's better than him too. Punk gets in Cena's face and says he's better than The Rock too. Punk says he did in one night what Cena couldn't do in an entire calendar year. Punk says he's the best wrestler, the best talker, the best technician, the best brawler. Punk says this because he is this and that makes him anything but a phony, he says.
Cena says Punk has been WWE Champion for 300 days and for 300 days the title has been irrelevant. Cena says Punk has watched main events pass him by. Cena says Punk thinks there is a conspiracy against him but really there is no him. Cena says Punk has been here for years but his biggest night was when his mic was cut. Cena says the only change Punk wanted was for him to be a star. Cena says Punk doesn't even know who CM Punk is. Cena goes on and talks in French. Punk rips him for it and things get intense. Punk draws back at Bret and Cena stops him. Cena takes off his shirt and readies to fight. Punk goes at Bret again but Bret drops him with a right hand, sending the WWE Champion out to the floor. Cena and Bret celebrate as Bret's music plays.
- We go to Michael Cole. He says Jerry Lawler's condition has stabilized, he is breathing on his own and his heart is beating on its own. Cole goes over what happened to Lawler earlier tonight. Cole reiterates that Lawler's condition has stabilized. Lawler is being prepared for a CT scan of his head and chest. Cole asks for thoughts and prayers.
