In the promo, Austin, who admits he hasn't seen what Punk said firsthand yet, commented, "You ain’t going to talk trash about me and I’m just going to let it slide. You call yourself the best in the world. You’re a damn joke and I ain’t going to get carried away here because I haven’t seen the promos. I just know that the words you had to say weren’t flattering. This is Stone Cold Steve Austin. You are looking, you are listening, to the best in the world and that’s all I got to say about that."
