- Up next, The Rock. Back to commercial.
- We go to the ring and out comes WWE Champion The Rock to a big pop from the crowd.
Rock says this is a very special night because not only are we sold out, but he's been waiting a very long time to say this... "finally The Rock has come back to Nashville." The crowd chants Rocky. Rock says Nashville is very special to him. Rock is going to tell us why and says it's story time. He talks about a 15 year old Rock and his family moving to Nashville in 1987. Rock shouts out his high school. Rock name drops Jeff Jarrett. Rock tells a story about buying a car from a crackhead in a bar. Rock says another crackhead was sleeping in the backseat. Rock pulled it over and kicked the guy out. Rock then wondered if the car was stolen. What did he do next? Rock ditched that b---h in a Burger King parking lot and went right to a place called Tootsie's Lounge. Rock says there's two points here - never buy a car from a crackhead and don't be like The Rock when he was 15, doing what he shouldn't be doing. Rock talks about wrestling locally in Nashville when he was 25. Rock say she's WWE Champion now and will still be after Elimination Chamber. CM Punk's music hits and out he comes with Paul Heyman.
Rock compares their earlier segment to a love scene from Twilight. Rock calls Punk a homeless looking vampire boy. Rock tells them to bring it if they want to stack the odds against him. Rock says he will beat Punk's punk ass at Elimination Chamber and if Punk comes down to the ring, he will beat him around Nashville tonight. Rock gets ready to fight as Punk walks to the ring. Punk stops at the foot of the ramp and talks with Heyman. Heyman says he has Punk's back. They look to leave but Punk rushes the ring and starts brawling with Rock. Punk takes control in the corner but Rock nails him with a spinebuster. Rock goes for The People's Elbow but Heyman pulls his leg and trips him. Punk takes advantage and drops Rock with a GTS. Punk grabs the WWE Title belt and leaves with it. Punk goes to the ramp and tells Rock story time is over. Punk says every time Rock wants to bring it, he's just going to take it because it belongs to him. Punk drops the mic and raises the WWE Title up. RAW goes off with Rock getting to his feet and Heyman telling Punk he's the best.
