Paul Heyman comes out and says he had the pleasure of watching CM Punk defend his title last night, but there remains a bit of controversy. He says he asked referee Chad Patton to come out and address it, because Patton says he is defending his decision. Heyman says John Cena criticized the decision, but he made the right decision, then Patton agrees and Heyman says there's more. He says there was a fan video taken down from YouTube, but he has a copy, and it shows Cena's shoulders were down too. Heyman says Punk is still the champion and worthy of their respect, but he still doesn't get it eventhough he walked into Boston and successfully retained his title. 

John Cena cuts him off before Heyman can say anymore, and he says Heyman should shut up because he actually agrees with Heyman for once. He says he knows Patton doesn't have any bias towards him, but he did talk to him because of the finality of what had happened last night. Cena says having a draw was like ending the Super Bowl in a tie, and he wanted a winner just like all of the fans wanted the same thing. Cena says Punk probably didn't earn the respect he wanted by retaining on a tie, but Heyman says he did and Cena says he must be confused. He says respect is earned by leaving no doubt, and Patton may have made the right call, but he wants to find out who the real winner is. Cena says they should do the rematch tonight, but Heyman says Punk will tell him what he thinks of that when he gets there later tonight.

Heyman says it's the same hearing it from him, because he's the voice of the voice of the voiceless, then Alberto Del Rio interrupts them and says Cena should stop crying. Alberto says Cena already got his shot, but Alberto was cheated because he wasn't ready for his match last night. He says the Brogue Kick was supposed to be banned, and he should get the next title shot, then AJ Lee comes out and joins them in the ring. AJ says they might deserve another chance, so she's combining the two main events last night and making Alberto team with Punk against Cena and Sheamus. She says the winner will make the decision easier as to who may get a rematch, then she skips away as Heyman tells her to come back.
