AJ comes out and heads to the ring.
AJ: I don’t know who these people are and how much you paid them to say this crap, but i’m sick and tired of this. Vickie, you want to fire me so bad then fire me. If not, then do everyone a favor and shut the hell up.
Vickie: I am sure that you want to put all this being you, but you can’t admit the truth. You lie about it every week. But you know what? Don’t worry because i’ll take it from here. Because while you were lip locking with Cena in the car, Mr. Brady was taking pictures. Ladies and gentlemen if you’re offensive to nudity, you should leave and cover your little one’s eyes right now.
Instead of pictures, John Cena comes out and enters the ring.
Cena: This…all this. Garbage. A load of crap. Why? Because you’re trying to get people something to talk about. I’ll show you how to give people something to talk about. AJ, I hope you don’t mind.

Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman. Let’s get something straight. You don’t boo me! I am here tonight to honor a man who has defending the championship for 365 consecutive days and you have the nerve to boo me? Are you angry at me? Are you upset with CM Punk because he defended the title against both Cena and Ryback? Is that what’s bothering them? Or maybe it’s because we made fun of Jerry “The King” Lawler. You Tweet and you Tout and you cry for the Attitude era, but when we give you a taste of the Attitude you don’t like it anymore, do you? You have the audacity to chant “ECW” at him, but when we give them a little taste of the Extreme you don’t like it, now do you? The WWE Universe has never been able to appreciate the greatness before them when the WWE Champion raises the bar so high that even in the most competitive environment in WWE history, this man for whom this celebration is all about stands head and shoulders above the rest for all time. It’s time to put some smiles on your faces because this is a celebration! A celebration of 365 glorious days of your reigning and defending WWE champion, the best in the world. I am humbled and privileged to bring to you…CM PUNK!

A video package plays highlighting Punk’s year as WWE Champion from day one until now.
Punk: Tonight is a night of celebration. But it’s not about honoring the past. It’s about looking towards the future and knowing your place in history. I can’t stop, won’t stop, until i’m at the top of the list.
CM Punk shows a top ten list of longest WWE Championship reigns.
Punk: I intend on surpassing Bruno Sammartino and becoming the longest reigning WWE Champion in WWE history.
Heyman: When I was a kid I was a fan of Bruno Sammartino. Bruno Sammartino belongs in the WWE Hall of Fame just like he will be a first pick in the WWE Hall of Fame, but truth be told…Bruno Sammartino could never beat CM Punk. Hulk Hogan could never beat CM Punk. In fact another “Paul Heyman guy” Stone Cold Steve Austin could never, on his best day, beat CM Punk. It’s a matter of fact that at the Royal Rumble, not even “The Rock” can beat CM Punk.
Punk: Thank you. Thank you very much for setting this all up, Paul. A lot of people ask me very important questions about my title reign. One of them is what his most important victory has been. Last night beating John Cena and Ryback on the same night, number one. It’s number one because everyone thought I was going to lose. Only two thought I could do it, and they’re both in the ring right now. With the odds against me, I have cemented my legacy-
