The Acclaimed defeated Shawn Dean and Robert Anthony in Max Caster’s first match back in weeks. He started to read a prepared rap, but tore up the paper and did his own which the crowd cheered for.

After the match, CM Punk came out once again and closed the tapings with Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus and Marko Stunt. He started to thank everyone and mentioned how people liked singing. He got the crowd to sing the theme song from The Golden Girls. He mentioned that last week in Milwaukee that he had told people that if they did not like the show to “shut the f*** up.” He said we don’t mind the criticism. He said he was no longer the voice of the voiceless because everyone here has a voice. He said what he meant by that statement is that if you had nothing interesting to add, we don’t need you. At the end of the day, “y’all all our bosses and if you like what you see, let us know.”
