- Michael Cole welcomes us to the Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana. We go right to the ring and out comes John Cena.
Cena says we are in the heart of Cajun country and the Road to WrestleMania is heating up. Cena says WrestleMania 29 is taking shape and talks about Jack Swagger vs. Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Title and himself vs. The Rock for the WWE Title. CM Punk's music hits and out he comes with Paul Heyman.
Punk meets Cena in the middle of the ring. Punk asks Cena if he's sure he's facing The Rock at WrestleMania. Punk says that's the easy way out. Punk says The Rock beat him fair and square last night but says he had him pinned for an 18 count before that. Punk says Rock also struck a WWE official and should have been disqualified, losing the title. Punk says Cena has never beat him. Cena says he earned the right to go to WrestleMania and says Punk couldn't get the job done. Cena says for once, it's not about Punk. Punk brags about his lengthy title reign. Punk says Cena got lucky in the Royal Rumble and hasn't earned anything. Punk says Rock will beat Cena again this year because Cena can't get it done, he can't win the big one. Cena asks Punk what he wants. Punk tells Cena to just walk away, leave WWE, get out of his life - just walk away. Cena goes to leave the ring but says no. Cena says Punk has a set of balls and he admires his honesty. Cena says you should know he won't just give away a golden ticket to WrestleMania.
Cena acknowledges that he hasn't beat Punk or Rock. Cena says we have a problem - Cena has critics and Punk wants to go to WrestleMania. Cena wants to hush those critics and has a solution. Cena proposes a match. If he wins, Punk crawls back in his hole and goes away. If Punk wins, Cena will give him his WrestleMania title shot. Cena says Punk talks business but he handles business. Cena wants the match right now. Punk talks it over with Heyman. Punk says Cena just made the stupidest decision of his life. Punk says he will take Cena up on the offer but he won't do it here. The crowd boos. Punk wants to do it on his terms since he got screwed last night. Punk says we will do the match next week and walks out of the ring with Heyman. Cena says their match is official for next week. Cena says he will beat Punk, go to WrestleMania and then we will know the champ is here.
- Still to come tonight, The Rock's celebration. We go to commercial.
- We see stills from Elimination Chamber where The Shield beat Ryback, Cena and Sheamus. Matt Striker is backstage with Sheamus. Sheamus talks about the match and letting everyone down. Ryback is pacing around. Sheamus stops him and says they have to adapt and overcome. Sheamus asks Ryback if he's a machine or some mindless neanderthal. Ryback grabs Sheamus by his collar and Chris Jericho breaks it up. Jericho says they should be upset with The Shield, not each other. Jericho says Shield has everyone on edge. Jericho says he's seen it done with the nWo and Nexus. Jericho says we have to do what it takes to save WWE. Jericho says he loves WWE and will never wrestle for anyone else again. Jericho says they have to stop The Shield. Jericho says he's going to talk Vickie Guerrero into making The Shield vs. Jericho, Ryback and Sheamus.
