Sheamus makes his entrance then Punk follows him out, but Punk comes out in his jeans and Sheamus asks why he's not dressed for the match. Punk says there's alot Sheamus doesn't know about his city, and they all respect him and all of his decisions that he makes. He says people are all taking the day off for Labor Day, so he's sure they will respect the fact that he's doing the same thing.
