– Tonight’s WWE RAW opens up with the usual intro video but before it finishes we go live inside the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts as CM Punk’s music hits and out he comes with a megaphone in hand.
Punk walks down and takes a headset from the ringside area. He puts it on and says something to the producer in the back. Punk takes a seat down in the ring with a normal mic and his megaphone beside him. Punk says he feels some recapping is in order. He says he was suspended by Vince McMahon last week and the crowd boo’s. Punk says he was suspended because the week before, he got into trouble for things he said. Punk recalls everything he said, as he said it in his promo, but says he didn’t get in trouble for those remarks. He got in trouble because he has the balls to say what nobody else does. Punk says WWE is filled with a parade of shameless ass kissers, in and out of the ring.
Punk says he is re-instated, got his Championship match back and brought back-up in case they change cut his mic again – he says this into the megaphone. A big CM Punk chant breaks out as Punk lets off the sirens on the megaphone. Punk says Vince wants to sign him to a longterm and very lucrative WWE contract. Punk says Vince is bending over backwards to give him what he’s ever wanted. Punks says all he has ever wanted is a microphone. In anyone else’s hand, it’s just a microphone. In his hand, it’s a pipebomb, he says. Punk says Vince finally sees him for what he is – the hottest in the business today. The crowd cheers this. Punk says Vince sees this way because Punk did what Vince and his suits couldn’t do – make WWE socially relevant. Punk says he’s talking about the real world, not the fans. Punk says WWE only gets a mention in the real world two ways – he speaks his mind or someone dies. The crowd doesn’t like this.
Punk says ESPN and Kimmel are ringing his phone off the hook for a story. Punk thinks it’s funny that he has one foot out the door and now Vince finally wants to give him what he wants.

Punk says he will beat Cena for the WWE Title at Money in the Bank and will probably change the way it looks. Punk says it has been far too ugly for far too long. The crowd cheers this. Punk says he is leaving and he will beat Cena for the title. Now, Cena is going to get fired. Punk goes on and Cena is glad to see he finally has a set of balls. Cena says he is out here to set Punk straight. Cena says Punk has to go through him to take the WWE Title out of Chicago. Cena says he’s no push-over. Cena brings up Punk saying he is the best wrestler in this company. Punk corrects him and says he’s the best wrestler in the world. Cena says he does what he does because he loves it. He says he has the WWE Title because he earned it. Cena says there are a lot of people who thought they were the best wrestler. He names people like JBL, Triple H, Eddie Guerrero, Shawn Michaels, Kurt Angle and others he has defeated. Cena says everyone thought they could hang with him but they got disappointed. Cena doesn’t care about this and that. He says he’s coming to Chicago at Money in the Bank to whoop Punk’s ass. The crowd pops as they face off in the middle of the ring. The e-mail alert goes off to boo’s.
