Grisham with Edge. He says Grisham shouldnâ€™t be asking how he is going to go through 5 other men, but how the 5 others will be going through him.
CM Punk comes out, and says that he loves Chicago (me too!). He says he loves the skyline, Navy Pier, the museums, the history, everything about Chicago. However, he hates the inhabitants. He says that they all destroyed his city. The teamsters, the corrupt politicians, the White Sox, the Suzy Homemakers who fatten their kids with fast food. He says that Chicago should be burned to the ground again, and he alone should be allowed to re-create the city in Straight Edge utopia. He says that he hates Big Show, and that he is not scared of Big Show, and he will not run. He is David, and his power will be the almighty Straight Edge.

Punk goes to hits his slingshot clothesline, but Big Show tackles him right out of the air. Show then nails the Knockout Punch for the pin.
