- Tonight's WWE RAW opens up with still shots from the Ryback vs. CM Punk match at last night's Hell In a Cell pay-per-view.
- We're live from the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina as Justin Roberts introduces WWE Champion CM Punk. Out comes Punk with Paul Heyman. Punk is limping and has his ribs bandaged up. Michael Cole welcomes us to RAW and he's joined by Jim Ross.
The crowd boo's Punk as he takes the mic. He says everyone thought Ryback was unbeatable. Everyone said it couldn't be done. Everyone thought Punk would be just another victim. Punk says he proved everyone wrong. Punk calls Jim Ross a buckethead and says he was wrong. Punk points out everyone in the crowd and says they were wrong. Punk has proved everyone wrong for 344 days he says. Punk says he has defeated every single hero, he's survived everything they had to offer. Punk brings up beating Rey Mysterio, Randy Orton and John Cena. Punk says Ryback isn't even in the conversation.
Punk says his win at Hell In a Cell was monumental. Punk brings up Brad Maddox attacking Ryback and says he had nothing to do with it. Punk says the only thing he's guilty of is taking advantage of a situation brought on by a WWE referee. Punk names him as Brad Maddox. Punk says Maddox was hired by AJ Lee and says that's all you need to know. Punk says he had nothing to do with what happened at Hell In a Cell. "You suck" chants from the crowd. Punk brings up beating Vince McMahon and Triple H. Punk declares that he is the best in the world and Heyman raises the WWE Title behind him. Punk says he can proudly say he looks at Ryback in a completely different way - behind him. Punk says there won't be a rematch, he's moving on. Mick Foley's music hits and out he comes.
Punk calls Foley a homeless man who has been displaced by the storm in the Northeast. Foley tells Punk to stay classy, making light of a situation like that. Foley brings up Ryback destroying Punk on top of the Cell last night. Punk says the last time we saw Foley, he was on the ground because Punk kicked his ass. Foley says he didn't come out here to embarrass Punk because Punk did a good job of doing that himself last night. Foley says he gave Punk a choice a month ago - be a Legend or be a statistic. Foley says Punk blew it. They argue about the tradition of Hell In a Cell. Punk rips into the Charlotte fans. Punk brags more about being champion for 344 days. Punk says it seems like Foley wants to do something. Punk proposes a traditional Survivor Series match - Team Foley vs. Team Punk.
Foley accepts the challenge and says Punk is on. The crowd chants for Foley now. Punk says whoever Foley picks... Ryback's music interrupts and out he comes to a nice reaction from the crowd. Ryback hits the ring as Punk and Heyman retreat through the crowd. The crowd chants "feed me more" as Ryback stands alongside Foley. We go to commercial.
