Punk says there is only one king in Chicago and when you come at the king, you better not miss. Punk says Lawler got what he deserved, Chicago style. Punk sayslast week, he decided to teach Lawler a lesson in respect until a white knight named John Cena showed up. The crowd boos Cena's name. Punk asks the fans ifhe turned his back on them and they chant no. Punk says Cena agrees with Jerry Lawler which means he's disrespecting him.

Punk isn't happy about being interrupted. Sheamus says he's the World Heavyweight Champion and gets a major mixed reaction from the crowd. Sheamus compares The Rock interrupting Punk to Punk interrupting him tonight. Sheamus says at least Rock had the guts to step in the ring, unlike Punk who is up on the stage.
