Vince McMahon makes his way to the ring but he is still on his crutches and he is not really dressed to fight, unless it is a board room brawl.
Vince says that he likes to do things in a big way and we are close to Wrestlemania so we need something big each week. What better way to start off the show than with a fight. Vince says that it is time to bring out Paul Heyman.
Paul Heyman comes out and he says that Vince is the showman and the great entertainer. Paul says that you will be able to tell your children that you saw a one legged man in an ass kicking contest.

Paul says that he is all man. Vince has as much chance against him as Tony Romo leading the Cowboys to the Super Bowl. Paul says that he will not take it easy on Vince. He has seen Vince run every promoter out of business, including him. Paul says that he is coming after Vince for everything heâ€™s got.

CM Punk makes his way to the ring and we go to commercial.
We are back and CM Punk is now in the ring. He says tonight on live television, the world witnesses history. Those fortunate enough to be here live, it is a night that you will talk to your grandchildren about. A story has been told for years leading up to this moment. Tonight, you see the end of that story as well as the beginning.
There are some who would make you think that tonight is about an epic match between John Cena and CM Punk. Tonight is not about a match. Tonight is not about John Cena. Tonight is not about The Rock. Punk says that he could point at the sign and say that this is about Wrestlemania but it is not even about Wrestlemania. Tonight is not even about the people. As near and dear as the WWE Championship is to him, it is not about that championship.
Tonight is about the future and that is more important than the WWE Title, Wrestlemania, and the Rock. Tonight is about CM Punk. Tonight is about the single most important superstar of this era and eras past. It is about him taking his place at the Showcase of the Immortals in the main event.
Punk says that he has held his precious WWE Title longer than anyone in decades. He has beaten John Cena more times that he can remember. He has pinned the Rock not once, but twice in four weeks. He is the best in the world. He is the best in the world. The best in the world earns the right to go into the main event of Wrestlemania. He is not a superstar. He is an icon who walks among Superstars.
He tells us that we are watching greatness on two feet. Punk says that he is immortal and the greatest of all time. He is an icon, a legend, and the best. In this world that everyone inhabits, he is God.
There is a new name for the Hall of Fame to join Bob Backlund, Mick Foley, Trish Stratus, and Bruno Sammartino. That person is Donald Trump.

It is time to take a look at the Marine 3: Homefront starring The Miz, coming to DVD and Blu-Ray.
Miz makes his way to the ring for MizTV.
The guests for MizTV are in the ring. On one side of the ring, Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger. On the other side is Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez.
Miz says that he would start things off with a lot of hype but he wants to cut to the chase. He introduces his guests.
Miz asks Zeb and Jack about the controversy they had last week. Miz says that he is giving them the opportunity to say things to Albertoâ€™s face.
Zeb says that he was looking forward to the opportunity to talk to Glenn Beck, but since he chickened out, he is looking forward to talking to Alberto. He introduces himself and Jack as Real Americans. He says that there is a problem in this country. There are 11 million undocumented workers in this country. He calls them undocumented because of the politically correct.
They want to grant them amnesty to allow them to be citizens. Real Americans have a tough enough time getting jobs. They sneak across the border and take our jobs, our medical resources and they stomp on our productivity. Zeb says that Albertoâ€™s people drain our resources.
Alberto interrupts and then Miz stops him to hear from Alberto.
Miz asks Alberto about obtaining citizenship in Mexico but Zeb starts to answer Miz.
Alberto says to let Zeb talk.
Zeb says that he doesnâ€™t know anyone who wants to be a citizen of Mexico. He says that it takes ten years to become a citizen. Zeb says that a foreigner cannot own property in Mexico. He wants to know what is wrong with Alberto and his people.
Zeb tells Alberto and Sling Blade to calm down. He says that this is not personal. It is what Alberto represents. Alberto represents success and the American dream. He encourages millions of illegals to cross the border to achieve their dreams. There is only one Alberto Del Rio success story. The ones who fail forget to leave this country. He says that they are not going to stand by and let this happen. He says that we call them criminals.
Alberto and Zeb yell at each other and then Alberto tells Zeb that it is time to shut up.
Alberto says that America does not belong to Zeb or to him, it belongs to everyone. He is no different than the people in the crowd or Zeb. He says that they descend from immigrants. They both want to provide their families with a better life. They are here with the promise that if you work hard in America, everything is possible.
Alberto says that he is living proof of that. Do they think they can come out here and bully everyone while hiding behind the Constitution. Alberto says that he did not know anything about Zeb two weeks ago. He heard about people like him but he never met one like him. Alberto says that he does not like bullies and if Zeb has the cajones, why not do something to make them leave right now.
Jack takes the mic and he says that WE will see you at Wrestlemania. WE the people. Jack throws down the mic and leaves.
Randy Orton is walking in the back for his match with Antonio Cesaro and we go to commercial.
