John Cena interrupts CM Punk and Lawler’s conversation.

CM Punk calls John Cena out on interrupting him then talks about taking a backseat. Punk says John Cena gets the title shot but Cena has to admit Punk is the Best In the World.

Rather than do this, John Cena goes on a tirade about respect, beating The Rock and not letting people down.

John Cena refuses to sacrifice his integrity and tells CM Punk that if he doesn’t choose him, he’s confident he’ll get a title shot again.

John Cena tells CM Punk the best way for Punk to prove that he is the Best In The World is to face John Cena in his hometown at Night Of Champions in “the biggest match in the main stage.”

John Cena says if CM Punk doesn’t choose Cena, Punk has no respect for the WWE Championship and no respect for himself.

CM Punk calls Jerry Lawler back in and demands an apology. After Lawler apologizes, CM Punk demands Lawler call him the “Best In The World.” Jerry Lawler refuses.

Jerry Lawler gets ready to leave but CM Punk kicks Jerry Lawler then kneels over him.
