In Ring Segment
Heyman announces himself in the ring. He gets heat. He tells them they don't boo him. He's there to honor a man who's defended the WWE Title for 365 and they have the nerve to boo him. Are they angry with him? Upset with Punk for defending against Cena and Ryback. Or mad because they made fun of King last week. They Tweet, Tout and cry for the AE, but when they give them a taste of it, they don't like it anymore. They have the temerity to chant ECW at him, but when they give a little extreme, they don't like it, do they. The WWE 'Universe' hasn't been able to handle the greatness of the WWE Champ standing before them by standing in the ring and raising the bar so high, even in the hyper-competitive environment of the WWE, he's well above the rest. Put smiles on your faces for 365 days for your reigning WWE Champ, CM Punk!
Punk comes out in his new 'Heyman guy' t-shirt. He's all smiles and Heyman claps for Punk as he heads for the ring. A big hug between Heyman and Punk, Heyman says that he loves Punk. Punk won't even pose on the corners for the fans. Heyman wipes away tears, then hands the mic to Punk. Punk calls for more heat, the fans give it. He says HBK couldn't do it. Trip couldn't do it. Bret Hart, couldn't do it. That makes Punk the best there is, the best there wasn't he best there ever will be. Taker couldn't do it. Duane, the Rock couldn't do it. 365 as WWE Champ. 1 calendar year.
Video of Punk narrating how great he is over video from this past year. From when Punk won the WWE Title, then beating everyone he did to make it through the year. Jericho tapped, taking Rock out. Pinning Big Show, taunting Cena. Punk pinning Ryback at HIAC, then last night.
Heyman is still telling Punk how great he is. "CM Punk!"chants. Punk says it's a celebration. Not just about the past, but the future and seeing his place in history. That's at the top. His goal is to surpass Bruno Sammartino and become the longest reigning WWE Champ in history. Heyman says he knew Bruno Sammartino when he was a kid. He belongs in the HOF, but truth be told, he could never beat Punk. Truth be told, Hogan (#9) couldn't beat Punk. Another Heyman guy, SCSA couldn't, on his best day, beat Punk. Punk trumpets in the ring. At the Royal Rumble it will be proven that not even the Rock can beat Punk.
Punk thanks Heyman for setting this up. He says people ask him what his most important victory has been. Before last night he'd have been hard pressed, because there's been a lot, but beating Ryback and Cena is #1 with a bullet. No one believed. Only two did, and they're both in the ring. The deck stacked against him and Punk showed... "Feed me more!"
Punk is pissed as Ryback comes out to the ring, but Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns attack Ryback. Ryback gets free and into the ring. They are back in him in the ring and drag him out.
