John Cena comes out and talks about what is in store at Wrestlemania, then CM Punk cuts him off and heads down to the ring. Punk says Cena is taking the easy way out by facing The Rock, then he brings up his match last night and says The Rock should have been disqualified. He says Rock hit an official and Punk even had him pinned, but Cena is taking the easy way out because he hasn't beaten him. Cena says this isn't about Punk, but Punk says it is because he busted his ass to be the best and Cena got it easy. He says Cena made no true effort in winning the Royal Rumble, then he says Cena can't win the big one but Cena says this is typical of Punk to do. Punk says Cena should walk away and leave the WWE, then Cena says no, and he'll give Punk credit for his courage but he knows Punk is smarter than this.

Cena says he's not giving away a chance at Wrestlemania, but Punk is right in that he hasn't beaten Punk or Rock yet, so he may not deserve the main event. Cena says he wants to shut his critics up and let Punk earn his 'golden ticket,' and if he wins Punk has to go away. He says if Punk wins he will have earned his right to go to Wrestlemania, and Punk will get his title shot if he wins so they should do this right now. Punk says Cena just made the stupidest decision of his life, but he's going to do it on his terms because he shouldn't be in this position. Punk says he got screwed over last night, so they'll do this next week and Cena says he can take the week off because he's going to need the rest. Cena says it won't matter how much time he needs because he is going to bring it, and he will beat Punk and go to Wrestlemania because the champ is here.

Matt Striker joins Sheamus for his thoughts on last night's tag match, then Ryback is shown pacing in front of him and Sheamus asks what he wants. Sheamus says they both lost so they need to adapt and move on, then Sheamus says he must be like everyone thinks and he calls him a mindless goon. Ryback hits him and they get into a shoving match, then Chris Jericho runs in and stops them and tells them they need to stick together. Jericho says he has seen this before, but The Shield is on a new level so he is going to see Vickie Guerrero get her to make another six man tag match. Jericho says they can't deny how big a match between the three of them and The Shield would be, then Sheamus and Ryback tell him to make it happen.
