- We're live from the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia as CM Punk makes his way to the ring without Paul Heyman. Punk takes a fan sign and rips it up. Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler are on commentary.
Punk makes Justin Roberts come in the ring and announce him as The People's Champion. Punk is more calm than he was last week. Punk still disses the fans and says he reacted like a normal person would last week because he was screwed out of the WWE Title. Punk says The Rock doesn't pay the price and doesn't deserve what it means to be the champion. Punk brings up the video of Paul Heyman, Brad Maddox and The Shield that was shown last week. Punk asks fans at ringside and Cole if they saw him in the video, which we did not. Punk says if Heyman says it wasn't Heyman in the video, then it wasn't. It was somebody else. Punk brings up Vince McMahon and starts ripping him. Punk says Vince got what he deserved when he was laid out last week. Punk says Vince just had hip surgery today and Brock Lesnar broke his hip. Punk says that's karma and Vince deserved it. Punk goes back to ripping the fans. He says he will get back the WWE Title in just a few weeks. Punk says Rock may have the physical belt but he's the real champion. Punk says Rock will get what he deserves also. Punk goes on and is interrupted by Booker T.
The SmackDown General Manager botches his lines and Punk tells him to get off his show. Booker says Vickie Guerrero wanted Booker to come out and decide on Punk's fate but Booker is going to leave it up to the fans. Booker says Punk should face some of his previous WrestleMania opponents - maybe Rey Mysterio, Randy Orton or Chris Jericho. Booker tells the fans to download the WWE App and vote on Punk's opponent.
- Cole and Lawler plug the WWE App and tease Bruno Sammartino's Hall of Fame announcement for later tonight.
Ryback vs. Antonio Cesaro
We go to the ring and out comes Ryback. We go to commercial.
Back from the break and we see a WWE App video of Randy Orton talking about facing CM Punk at WrestleMania 27 and wanting to face him tonight. Ryback is in the ring as his opponent WWE United States Champion Antonio Cesaro comes out.
Back and forth to start. Ryback beats Cesaro down in the corner but is told to back off. Cesaro with a cheap shot but Ryback slams him and hits a hip toss. Ryback goes on and gets a 2 count. Ryback turns Cesaro upside down in the corner and stomps away as the crowd chants "feed me more." Cesaro rolls to the floor but Ryback follows him and brings it back in the ring. Cesaro catches him and stomps away.
