The show starts with an award show-like opening with CM Punk making some jokes and introducing himself as the winner from TLC last night. He does his entrance and cuts a promo in the ring, first introducing Zack Ryder and Daniel Bryan for winning their title matches. The Philadelphia crowd is red-hod for Punk and Bryan, and also does a loud WOO WOO WOO for Ryder. Ryder and Bryan cut short promos, as the Miz, Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio come out on the entrance ramp. Fighting ensues, John Laurinaitis comes out and books a six-man tag for the main event.
