Michael Cole and Jim Ross welcome Jerry Lawler back to RAW, and King walks out and hugs the two of them before saying how overwhelming this is. He thanks everyone for the response, and he says he wasn't sure if he'd be back but he's glad to be there and he is thankful. King says he has lived the movie 'It's A Wonderful Life' the past few weeks, and he had no idea how much he meant to so many people. King says it's great to be back, then CM Punk cuts him off and says he's glad King just got out of the ring because he would've beaten him to death... again.
Punk says people get on him about his behavior, but no one points a finger at King, and he thinks King acts in bad taste when he tries to fight him. He says people are blaming him for what happened to King, but the only person who is at fault is King and he says the heart attack was a stunt. Punk says he doesn't care about how long King was clinically dead, because the only number that matters is 358, and he just tied the 9th longest title reign ever. Punk says they can dismiss that, but 365 means something and he will be standing there as champion next week after he wins at Survivor Series.
Punk says he's honestly glad King is back, because he wants him to have a first row seat for the beating he gives out; and he only hopes King makes it to Sunday. Heyman fakes a heart attack while he's talking and Punk screams at people to help, then Heyman comes to and says he's fine while King watches at commentary. Punk says Heyman almost gave him a heart attack, then Mick Foley comes out and says nothing he does amazes him. Foley says Punk wants respect but he refuses to return it, then Punk says Foley is wasting their time because they have no issue. (Cont'd...)
