The Rock's music hits, the building erupts. The Rock cuts a promo on CM Punk stating that Punk is merely keeping the title warm for The Rock cause this Sunday The Rock is going to get what is rightfully his. CM Punk comes in via Satellite saying that The Rock is dillusional. Paul Heyman is behind CM Punk with the WWE Title. The Rock and Punk go back and forth until The Rock gets the final word.

I think that was the end of the television section. After his words with Punk, Damien Sandow comes out to interrupt The Rock. Sandow calls the Little Rock fans ignorant. The Rock reminds Sandow that he is the People's Champion. The Rock then asks the fans of Little Rock Arkansas if they would like to see The Rock deliver a Rock Bottom to Sandow. The answer seemed unanimous. So The Rock obliged. The Rock shook some hands and went backstage.
