FANDANGO VS. SANTINO
Both guys are ridiculously over. Santino tries to "dance", so Fandango punches him in the face. Not a ton to cover here. Santino tries to rebound, gets a great chant going, but takes a top rope leg drop for the loss.
Footage of Punk's Night of Champions defeat is show.
"Cult of Personality" hits and CM Punk makes his way out wearing a Chicago Blackhawks jersey. Cole announces CM Punk vs. Ryback for WWE Battleground in just two weeks. He soaks in the hometown reaction for a few minutes, before telling Chicago that they ruined his bad mood. He brings up Night of Champions, and says it will forever read "Paul Heyman defeated CM Punk". Punk says he doesn't deserve to wear a Blackhawks jersey, and he doesn't know if he can keep doing this anymore… But he recalls earlier this year, when the Hawks were down 1-3 against the Detroit Redwings, and took it to a game 7 overtime, and went on to win the Stanley Cup.
Paul Heyman comes out in a motorized scooter. Punk reminds him that they are in Chicago (no kidding?) and that they have 18,000 people who will bail his ass out of jail when he gets done with him. Heyman says he has been in physical therapy since Night of Champions, but it's all worth it because he beat CM Punk, and is the best in the world. He reminds Punk that Chicago is the "second city", which means he is only the second best in the world. He says he beat Punk with both hands tied behind his back. Heyman tries to leave, but pretends like his scooter isn't working. Punk leaves the ring and rushes Heyman, but Ryback and Axel ambush him from behind.
Punk manages to throw Ryback off the stage, and throw Axel into the tron. Punk leaps off the ramp and takes down Ryback on the floor, and goes back to work on Axel. The numbers game is too much for him though, and Ryback takes him out from behind. They climb on top of a storage crate, and Ryback puts Punk through a table, as Heyman jumps off the ramp, revealing he's not remotely hurt.
