Punk fights to pull Henry back in the ring, but Henry shifts and throws Punk into the apron.

Punk kicks Henry in the ribs a few times then jumps at him from the apron, but Henry catches him and throws him into the barricade as we go to a break.When we get back, Punk runs the ropes but Henry drops him with a clothesline, then steps on his chest and locks up with him on the apron but Punk snaps his head on the ropes. Punk grabs a chair and hits him with it to get a near fall, then he winds up again but Henry kicks him in the stomach and hits him with the chair. Henry wedges the chair in the turnbuckle pads and tries to throw Punk into it, but Punk counters with several punches to the head.

Punk runs towards the corner, but Henry clotheslines him and puts him in a bearhug until Punk elbows his way out of it. Punk chop blocks Henry's knee and connects with a DDT for two, then he goes up top and leaps off but Henry catches him and goes for a World's Strongest Slam. Punk floats over and hits an enziguiri, then he hits a running knee and goes for a bulldog but Henry throws him across the ring and runs at him towards the corner. Punk dodges him and Henry crashes headfirst into the chair in the turnbuckles, then Punk takes the chair to the top rope and uses it to hit an elbow drop for the win.
