- Back from commercial, as we give a special welcome to the Susan G. Komen cancer survivors at the show tonight.
- Backstage, Daniel Bryan tries talking to Larry King about how to deal with being called a goat-face, like when King was called an owl by Conan O'Brien. King just says to deal with it, but Bryan denies it, and makes a move on King's wife, who says she doesn't like trolls who sleep under bridges. "ONE TIME I sleep under a bridge!" Kane enters the scene, and says that, yes, the audience is calling Bryan goat-face. Bryan fires back, saying Kane's mask looks like someone slapped him with a fruit roll-up. ZING! They continue to argue and find that Larry king has vanished. Kane thought that was Skeletor Bryan was talking to. BAZINGA!
- Punk with Heyman. Heyman tries once more to dissuade Punk from facing Vince, until he realizes that if Punk completely debilitates Vince, he'll never be capable of making another decision again. Punk assures that he'll victimize McMahon completely.
Vince McMahon vs. CM Punk is up now ....
CM Punk v. Vince McMahon
Vince makes his way down to the ring, but Punk assaults him from behind and beats him down with punches and kicks. Looks like the match ain't happening, but a fight sure is.
Punk rolls him to the ring, but Vince takes him down and with some rabbit punches. Punk drops him with a roundhouse kick, then takes him over to the announce table. He bashes Vince into the announce table, then mocks him on the announcer mic. GTS attempt countered by Vince, who shoves Punk into the ring post, then throws him over the announce table! Then Vince dives over the table himself, and starts beating Punk with the mic, then a rolling chair shot below the belt! Vince tosses him back in, then fishes around for a kendo stick. Vince in the ring, Punk out of the ring. Punk calls for Heyman and the championship, but Vince cuts off Heyman and lays him out, taking the title and telling Punk to come and get it. Punk gets his own kendo stick, and the two lay into each other, but Vince gets the upper hand, Punk's begging off, and the crowd's in a frenzy! Vince charges, but an uppercut low blow by Punk. Punk canes Vince, then plans for the GPS before...FEED! ME! MORE! Ryback down to the ring, Punk out, but Cena tosses him in for the Meathook to a HUGE pop from the crowd. Shellshock attempt, but Punk slips out and runs off through the crowd. McMahon tells Punk, it's decision time. He either faces Cena or Ryback at Hell in the Cell, and if Punk won't decide, Vince will.
- End Show. (An ending that had me laughing and almost cheering in disbelief at the beating Vince gave Punk, and the monster pop for Ryback is a real good indicator that a WWE title match is soon coming for the "hungry man" of WWE. Overall, decent effort tonight. Rating: 7.0/10)
