CM Punk comes down to the ring. He takes up a mic and says Best in the World means something different to a whole lot of people. He says that the Wyatt Family have a problem with him. He doesn't know why they decided to jump him but he doesn't care. He has come to Smackdown to fight and he is used to being outnumbered. He squashed the biggest rat the WWE has ever seen, Paul Heyman. If it's a fight the Wyatt Family wants, why don't they come out to him face to face?
