Nobody is brave enough to get close enough to ask them. Punk does not care because he is here to fight. He has been outnumbered, but he is not outgunned. He squashed the biggest rat in the WWE, Paul Heyman. If the Wyatts want a fight, why not here, why not now . . . on Smackdown? Punk says that he is here and he is here all night long.

He says that he should still be the World Heavyweight Champion, but the title was stolen from him by John Cena.
Alberto says that the people cheer for John because they don’t know what is good for them. He says that they have no brains. People should see John for what he is. He is a thief. John is walking around with something he does not deserve.
The Gringos don’t know this, but at Hell in a Cell, he was sick. He had a fever, his knee, elbow, and neck were hurt. He begged the doctors to let him compete that night. Any of you lazy Americans would have called in sick that day. Not Alberto Del Rio. He is Mexican and he has pride.

The card will say ‘Dear friend Alberto, sorry you weren’t feeling so well, sorry I whipped your butt at Hell in a Cell, sorry you aren’t World Champion, get well soon. Your friend John Cena. P.S. watch the JBL and Cole show’.
Alberto tells John that this is not a joke and John is acting like a stupid little kid. He tells John to leave his show right now.
John tells Alberto to make him. The World Champion is two feet away from him and he is not calling in sick or backing down. Why not give Alberto his rematch tonight?
Alberto says that is exactly why he is here. He wants a referee to come out right now and he wants a doctor too because he will be sending John to the hospital. He will take back his title and he is going to break Cena’s arm.
Vickie Guerrero comes out and Excuse Mes her way onto the stage. She says that she is in charge and the World Title Match will not take place tonight. However, Alberto Del Rio will face John Cena for the World Title at Survivor Series. That is what is best for business.
John mentions that Vickie is out here and she is sick too because she has a chronic case of diarrhea of the mouth. Vickie has done two things that are best for business. The first was when she was fired and the other is when she shuts the hell up.
Alberto says that he thought he would never say this, but Little Juanito is right.
Vickie excuse mes and she says that she has picked out their opponents for tonight. Later, John Cena will be facing the Monster . . . Ryback. She excuse mes and tells Alberto that since he is just as disrespectful and offensive as John Cena, Alberto will face this monster . . . right now.
