TONIGHT ON SMACKDOWN: On the last SmackDown before Extreme Rules will Ziggler be able to claim a win over The World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan Bryan when he's involved in a tag team match tonight? It will be Daniel Bryan and Christian vs Ziggler and Ryback in an explosive tag team Main Event! Plus, the WWE Champion CM Punk will have an exclusive interview tonight live on SmackDown! Also, how will Paige continue to build momentum heading towards her clash with Natalya? All that and more on SmackDown!
So I'm being interviewed tonight and I suppose it's by you, Matt Striker? Okay, well we better get this thing started then?
Matt Striker waits for CM Punk and Heyman to get in to the ring.
Okay, so Punk on Sunday you will be defending your Championship in a Championship Scramble match. Are you worried that you might lose come this Sunday?
No Matt, I'm not worried because I'm confident in myself and my ability to win the match. Plus, you're asking the 'Best In The World' if he's worried, I'm never worried, this Championship is mine and I know the stupid fans here in Florida don't like that but I don't care about their opinion. This is about me and this about my Championship. I can't even believe you're asking me these kind of questions, give me something new, everyone in this arena knows that I'll win on Sunday, including you *Punk points to Matt Striker*
Matt, before you ask another one of your stupid questions let me just tell you why the Best. In. The. World will win this Sunday. Ladies and Gentleman you should be bowing down to this man not booing him. This is your reigning and defending WWE Champion CM PUNK and he deserves your respect. Punk has already slayed all of your 'heroes' including 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin. Oh, all those fans at WrestleMania were so excited to see Stone Cold, they even brought signs such as 'Stone Cold for WWE Champion' and what happened, Punk laid waste to him like every other wrestler on the roster currently. Stone Cold hasn't been seen since the RAW after WrestleMania and you know why that is? It's because he's embarrassed. Stone Cold should never have come back. Now all his legacy consists of is him being defeated by the 'Best In The World' CM Punk because that's all that matters anymore. He'll go down as the man with the most failed return in WWE history and you're all just to scared to admit it.
Thanks for that Paul you pretty much summed up all of my feelings tonight. Striker to be honest, I can't be bothered with this Interview anymore. Sorry
Punk and Heyman drop the microphones and walk out of the arena laughing at Striker.
