CM Punk came out to intervene, telling Dolph he always says he's going to win the big match but never quite delivers, and Vickie just keeps talking him up. Daniel Bryan came out next to say AJ has Punk wrapped around her little finger, and if she's in his corner at No Way Out, her bad luck for Punk, will bring him the WWE title. Sheamus came out last and said if everyone's out there now, why not have a match?
