Punk says that HHH’s perception of his isn’t good enough, and he shares Vince McMahon’s idea that CM Punk doesn’t belong in the ring with him, and HHH and Vince have a bodybuilder fetish. HHH says guys like Bret Hrt, Shawn Michaels, and Mick Foley got over, and they weren’t bodybuilders, and CM Punk is using it as an excuse for his failures. HHH says his opinion doesn’t matter, but the fans opinion do, and the reason Punkwas held back was because he wasn’t over with the fans. Punk says “We’re listening to the fans today? Where, oh where is my WWE ice cream bar?” and during his first Survivor Series, he was on a team with DX, and he was over then, and he’d rather be hated for who he is than be loved for who he’s not. HHH says Punk has won Money in the Bank and World Titles, maybe it really is Punk not getting over, and that John Cena came from nothing and got over with the fans. CM Punk wonders if HHH is really listening to the audience. HHH says they cheer today but last year not so much. Punk says he has been busting his ass and HHH agrees with him but now Punk has made it personal which is the reason for Sunday’s match. Punk says HHH is wrong, that he is the best, not John Cena and he will kick HHH’s ass and will pin him. He says this is Phil Brooks talking to Paul Levesque and the reason he will kick HHH’s ass is because, and then the mic keeps getting cut off. HHH gets the mic to work, hands it to Punk, and Punk hits HHH with it and walks of.
