- Up next, The Rock will speak.
- We go to the ring and out comes new WWE Champion The Rock to a huge pop.
The Rock hits the ring winth the WWE Title and the crowd takes a few minutes to calm down. Rock says finally he's returned to Las Vegas. Rock says tonight with the WWE Title is the proudest moment of his career. Rock says he's thanked his friends and family already but now he wants to thank the fans. Rock brings up how CM Punk said the fans were nothing. Rock says those crap days are over. Rock says Punk looks like a homeless tattooed freak. Rock knocks Heyman and uses the Twinkie t--s phrase again. Rock says we usher in a new era tonight - The People's Era.
The Rock says everyone gets pie tonight. CM Punk's music hits and out he comes to the stage pissed off, without Heyman. Punk says Rock is embarrassing the both of them. Punk says he made the title special and Rock is now flushing it down the toilet. Punk says Rock was handed the title like everything else in his crappy spoon fed life. Punk says if Rock had respect for himself, for his father and grandfather, then he would come hand him the title over. Rock challenges Punk to come take the title from him.
Rock tells Punk to come get it or stand up there like a punk ass b---h. Punk slowly walks towards the ring but stops. Punk backs up and says he will stand there like a punk ass b---h. Punk says he does things when he wants to, not on Rock's terms. Punk proposes a rematch for this weekend's live events. Punk says he will be there. And he will be back on RAW. But if that doesn't fit Rock's schedule, he will give him a rematch in three weeks at Elimination Chamber. Rock accepts the challenge and says Punk won't be taking anything but an ass whooping. If you smell... Rock's music hits and Punk storms off to the back.
