CM Punk hit Ryback with kendo stick again and followed it up with the GTS for the victory.
Winner: CM Punk
Heyman remained on top of the cell as CM Punk asked him, “Where are you going to go?” CM Punk grabbed another kendo stick and began to climb to the top of the cell after Heyman.
Heyman, who is apparently afraid of heights, but inexplicably climbed the cell, looked for somewhere to run.
CM Punk got his hands on him though, kissed him on the forehead and began whaling on him with kendo stick, which had the crowd going crazy.
CM Punk then signaled for the GTS and hit Heyman with it.
