OFFICIAL RESULT: Eve @ 2:40 via pin
-Eve has the photographer come in the ring and he takes pictures of her celebrating her victory over the fallen Alicia Fox.
-CM Punk and Paul Heyman arrive, Punk is on crutches. We'll hear from them…next.
-CM Punk and Paul Heyman make their way to the ramp, unfortunately Punk is not in a wheel chair. Punk says that it has come to their attention that there are some people in the WWE Universe that think that the injury he has is phony, and that the surgery did not take place. The knee is 100% real life, and is what happens when you work more than everyone else, and are the champion for 388 grueling days. Injuries happen, and this is a tough sport. 388 days with no signs of slowing down. Injuries happen, and he wants to show us how it happened, and we see the attack from Ryback on last week's show. Heyman then says that the people are ticking him off. HOW DARE THEY chant "Feed Me More" at CM Punk, just days after his emergency surgery. This is a legit champion, not like the NJ Devils. For 388 days he has been the reigning champion, and was injured so badly that he had to have emergency surgery. There were no stunt doubles like the Rock has. Punk is not complaining, he is here like the great man that he is, the longest reigning champion in the last 25 years, like the Rock, who was too busy to come here. Heyman says Ryback is no longer in front of Punk, and Punk will face the Rock at Royal Rumble, because CM Punk is not going anywhere. Because he is the best in the world. Punk then says he will address people saying he should be stripped of the title. That notion that he would hide from Ryback with a fake injury is ridiculous. If anyone believe that, then they can come and strip him of the title now. Cena, Show, Miz, Bryan, Jericho, Del Rio, and many others have tried, and they have failed, just like Ryback has failed twice. And at the Rumble, the Rock will also fail. Punk says the truth hurts, and on Sunday, he will be at TLC, and will watch the Shield, who he is not affiliated with, do to Ryback what Ryback did to him last week.
-Cole says the main event for the TLC PPV is Team Hell No and Ryback vs. The Shield in a TLC match, which can only be won by pin or submission.
