Last night, the man whose father was associated with perfection was able to win his first title in the WWE. Meanwhile, the man whose entrance music mentions ‘Perfection’ was unable to retain the World Title, possibly due to the concussion he recently suffered. The Shield still has their titles and John Cena was able to vanquish Ryback by sending him through the roof of an ambulance during Three Stages of Hell. Will we encounter the Fourth Stage of Hell if the rumors circulating about Mark Henry are true? What will Mark tell everyone tonight?

We are in Grand Rapids, Michigan and your announcers are Jerry ‘Isn’t there someone from Michigan returning to WWE soon’ Lawler, Michael ‘With the siren on the ambulance, I thought someone from Michigan was returning’ Cole, and John ‘We make references to Michigan on Monday nights’ Layfield.

Ricardo Rodriguez is on the stage to introduce the new World Champion and he is doing it in Spanish. The reaction to Del Rio is mixed after what he did last night.

Alberto takes the mic and he asks everyone how their weekend was. He says that he heard people talking about man of steel, but why do it when you have a man of gold.

Some people say the way he won was controversial, but what about the night after Wrestlemania when Dolph Ziggler attacked him when he was injured with his leg practically broken. He was in terrible pain but he gave Ziggler a fight. On that night, the people cheered for Ziggler.

They cheered for a coward who attacked an injured man. Alberto says that he should be surprised or offended but he is not. He says that he gets it. He hears the reactions each night. He gave the people everything. Then he fought an ignorant pig like Jack Swagger who offended the Mexican people. All heard was ‘USA” They don’t cheer for him but they cheer for a pig and a coward. That is what America is all about . . . pigs and cowards.

Alberto says that he fought for everyone for the last five months and he got nothing. Last night, he fought for Alberto Del Rio and he won the title. Alberto says that he is going to be the better man in this situation and he will show us why he is the best. He will give everyone a second chance to show him the respect he deserves.

CM Punk’s music interrupts and he makes his way to the ring with Paul Heyman.

Punk says that it feels like it has been a while. The last time they were in the ring together, he beat Alberto at Survivor Series when he beat Alberto to hold the title for 434 days. Punk says that it looks like Alberto remembers. He is not out here because of the problems he has with the people. He is out here because Alberto says that he was the best.

There is only one “Best in the World” and Alberto is looking at him. Punk says that he is challenging Alberto.

Paul says that his client don’t fight for free and Punk asks Paul what he is doing.

Paul says that they didn’t talk about it earlier.

Punk says that he knows that Dolph is owed a rematch. While Alberto was stealing the title from Dolph, he was stealing the show with Chris Jericho. Last night, Punk proved that he was the best in the world. He wants to do it tonight and against Del Rio.

Alberto tells Punk that he doesn’t want to do this. Punk says that he does want to do this. He wants a match tonight.

Alberto reminds Punk that he is the World Champion and he reminds Punk that he said that he doesn’t want him.

Punk asks Ricardo if he has his tights on.

Vickie Guerrero and Brad Maddox come out to excuse themselves. She tells Alberto that unfortunately, he does not make this decision, she does. She says that she cannot think of a better way to add to the momentum from Payback than to have a main event of Alberto Del Rio versus CM Punk.

Paul and Punk are in the back and Paul apologizes for jumping the gun. Punk reminds Paul of what he told him last night. Paul almost cost him the match last night. He does not need Paul’s help to win matches. He is not Brock Lesnar or Curtis Axel. He is not Paul’s client. He does not want Paul in his corner any more. He will always be a Paul Heyman guy.
