“Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…”

-Video recap of last week’s show.

-Michael Cole opens the show by himself. Before the show, Cole made his entrance, but Jerry Lawler didn’t. We see video of Lawler brawling with Punk backstage, with Punk getting the better of the fight.

-Sheamus comes to the ring to kick off the show. Sheamus says that they are ready to get things going in Chicago, and hen he comes here, the party never ends. But he says the party will end for Alberto Del Rio. At Night of Champions

Sheamus is interrupted by CM Punk’s music, and the WWE Champion makes his way out to the stage, and the crowd in Chicago is happy to see him. Punk tells Sheamus not to come out and talk to his hometown. They can relate to Punk because he is from there, and he then asks how everyone is doing. Punk says what we saw earlier was him beating up Jerry Lawler. But the cameras did not catch Jerry attacking HIM from behind. Punk then says Lawler got what he deserved, Chicago style. If it isn’t bad enough that Lawler need to attack him from behind he has been attacking his integrity. So last week, he took it upon himself to teach Lawler a lesson in respect. Class was in session until the white knight, John Cena got involved where he did not belong. He asks the universe, did he turn his back on them? They respond with loud NO chants. John Cena helped Jerry Lawler, which means he agrees with Lawler, which means his disagrees with Punk, and that amounts to disrespect. Punk sys if you disrespect the WWE Champion, for 288 days mind you, it is Cena that has turned his back on the WWE Universe.

Sheamus cuts off Punk and says he knows they were in Punk’s hometown, and says if they want to talk disrespect, say you’re the best, well Sheamus says he is the world champion, and Punk interrupted him. That’s alike the crime the Rock committed, you remember that? Sheamus says at least the Rock had the guts to step into the ring, unlike Punk who is on the stage. Come on down FELLA! Punk says he already beat up one goon tonight. Sure you are the world champion, which makes you at the best, second best in the world. Punk says Sheamus is behind him in the pecking order, so shut your mouth. Sheamus tells him to turn around, because he is talking out his ARSE.

AJ now skips her way out in her Ally McBeal special. She has announcements to make. Tonight, John Cena will face Alberto Del Rio tonight. Also, CM Punk will face Sheamus in a champion vs. champion match.
