The show starts with footage from Hell in a Cell, when referee Brad Maddox gave Ryback a low blow to help CM Punk win the match and retain the title. We then see a photo of Ryback giving CM Punk the marching muscle buster on top of the cell.
We are live from Charlotte, North Carolina and your announcers are Jim Ross and Michael Cole.
CM Punk does what he has done for the last three hundred forty-four days as he holds the WWE Championship. CM Punk’s ribs are bandaged and he limps to the ring while Paul Heyman holds the title over his head.
Punk says that they all thought that he was unbeatable. You all said it couldn’t be done. You all thought . . . you all knew that he would be just another victim left in a trail of bodies by the monster Ryback. Punk says that he proved you all wrong.
Punk tells Jim Ross that he was wrong. He tells Cole that he was wrong. He tells the Spanish announcers that they were wrong. Punk goes around the ring and points out how everyone was wrong. He proved everyone wrong. For 344 days, he has proven everyone wrong. Since day one he has been proving everyone wrong. He has defeated every one of their heroes.

Rey thought that he could fly at his expense, but he caught him out of the sky and put him to sleep. The Apex Predator of Raw said that he would send him to the hospital but he proved that the Anaconda Vice was stronger than the Viper.
There is the resident Superman in John Cena, but time and time again, he has beaten John and showed him what kryptonite is.

Punk says that he was on Ryback’s shoulders and he thought he was going to get Shellshock, but he was shocked. The only thing that he is guilty of is taking advantage of a situation caused by a rogue official.

Punk says that you can hate him, but the list goes on and on. Triple H . . . Vince McMahon. The entire TitanTower machine has tried to erase him from the record books, but he is unerasable. He can proudly say that now he looks at Ryback in a completely different way. Ryback is in his rear view mirror because he is done. There is no rematch.
Mick Foley’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring and Punk says that he will not be interrupted.
Punk says that it is the homeless man who has been displaced by the storms in the northeast.
Foley likes how Punk makes light of the situation. Foley says that 24 hours ago, he was left splattered on top of the cell after Shellshock by Ryback.
Punk wants to know why Mick is here. The last time Mick was on television, he got his ass kicked by Punk. He thinks that Foley is out here to embarrass him.
Foley says that he did not come out in . . . Charlottte, North Carolina to embarrass him. Punk did enough to embarrass himself inside the cell.
Punk wants to know if Foley is here to judge him.
Foley says that he gave Punk a choice last month to see if he would be a legend or a statistic. Foley says that Punk blew it.
Punk shows the scars and he says that is the tradition that he earned. Punk says that this is what Foley’s tradition does to its stars.
Punk says that if Foley wants to bark to him about tradition. He says that 344 days shows tradition. Punk says that they have a traditional Survivor Series match. Team Foley against Team Punk.
Foley thinks about it and Punk is on.
