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 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 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.
