CM Punk: We're in the midst of a new era here on Smackdown and it has nothing to do with you. Your wife, Vicki Guerrero, is no longer Smackdown General Manager. So to a guy like me, that means you don't have anybody pulling strings for you in the office. You don't have anyone protecting you or your championship. And while you're scheduled to defend it at Judgement Day, actual General Manager Teddy Long wanted me to come out here to let you know that you will be in competition, against me, tonight.
