- Back from the break and Michael Cole is in the ring. He introduces WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross for some appreciation. Ross comes out from the back to a big pop from the hometown crowd.
Cole congratulates JR on this night. Cole asks him how it feels. Before Ross can speak, WWE Champion CM Punk comes out with Paul Heyman right behind him.
Punk takes the mic from Cole and tells him to get out of the ring. The crowd boos Punk. Punk wants the fans to chant for JR and they do. Punk says JR is the best announcer we have and he respects and appreciates the hell out of him. Punk says the fans don't know the first thing about respect. Punk talks about how he comes out each week and people twist what he says. Punk puts his arm around JR and says he's going to help Punk teach everyone about respect. Punk wants JR to tell everyone that he's the best in the world.

Punk goes on and gets in JR's face. Punk wonders if Steve Austin will come to JR's help. Punk says nobody will - not Austin or Jerry Lawler. Punk says 3:16 used to mean something else but now it means the number of days he has held the WWE Title. Punk says JR belongs to him right now. Punk wants JR to tell the fans he's the best. JR refuses. JR says he has called matches with the best in the world - guys like Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Triple H, The Undertaker. Ross says Austin and all those men have one thing in common - they didn't ask to be called the best in the world. JR says he would have anyway because they earned that distinction. JR says here's the bottom line, no disrespect, just being honest... Ross suggests Punk accept Cena's challenge for Hell In a Cell and kick his ass. If he does that, Ross will be the first one to call him the best in the world. Until then, JR says they have nothing to talk about. The crowd pops.
