Punk talked about how beat up he was from last night's match, and about how this arena hasn't been so kind to him. He said nothing hurts more than maybe his pride though.

Hunter said if Punk can't get it through his head that Triple H hasn't been involved in all of the stuff with Nash, Miz, Truth and conspiracies, then he's ready to go to war again. Punk told him to put his tie back on, because it's clear somebody is playing them both.

Punk was interrupted by John Laurinitis who came out to say Punk's in the middle of this conspiracy. Laurinitis tried to tell HHH that Punk is just upset he couldn't beat him.
