- We go to a prerecorded, produced promo from Brock Lesnar. He says Punk is a joke and that he never liked him. Lesnar says the only reason he let Punk exist all this time is because of respect for Paul Heyman. He says Punk takes beginner's MMA classes and thinks that makes him tough. Lesnar says he is the beast and the best.
Christian vs. Alberto Del Rio
They lock up and jockey for position. Del Rio gets the better of that exchange. Christian comes back into a side headlock on the mat. These crazy fans in the front row are doing the Viking/Berserker hand gesture. Christian sends Del Rio to the floor and hits a basement dropkick as we go to break.

The action goes back to the floor and Del Rio sidesteps as Christian leaps off the top and crashes into the security wall. Del Rio goes back to a headlock in the ring. Christian comes back but Del Rio lands a vicious kick to the head. They chant "USA" at Del Rio. Del Rio hangs Christian upside down in the corner and unloads with kicks. Christian fights back with strikes. They both go up top and fight for the advantage but both end up falling off to the floor.
Back to the ring as we return. More back and forth. Christian manages to peel himself off the mat and deliver a hurricanrana off the top but is unable to capitalize for the pin. Del Rio gets up first and delivers shoulders in the corner. Christian hits a missile dropkick and flies off with crossbody for 2. Christian comes off the top again, this time with an elbow to the jaw. Del Rio counters out of the Killswitch and hits a backbreaker for 2.
