IN THE RING
Straight Edge Society (C.M. Punk & Luke Gallows & Serena) & 3 young adults + Rey Mysterio: There were 3 people sitting on chairs in the ring with them. Luke said there was a time when he was just like the people in the audience, weak minded, pathetic, and riddled with addiction. Luke said he would wake up and think it was impossible to save himself. Luke said the person who saved him can make the impossible, possible. Serena said everyone watching needs to stand up right now; unfortunately I can’t type while standing. Serena said you need to show Punk the respect that he deserves. Luke said he can’t think of a better place for Punk then Canada, since it’s legal for teenagers to drink alcohol. Luke said the impressionable youth are physically and emotionally handicapping themselves as their parents turn a blind eye. Luke said it would change for the people in the ring because they would take the pledge to extinguish the demons of weakness and addiction, just like Punk will do to Rey at Over the Limit. Serena said the individuals in the ring represent the decay and worthlessness of the country. Serena said they are here tonight to heal them, and at Over the Limit Punk will heal Rey Mysterio. Serena said through Punk the power of straight edge will be seen from now until eternity. Punk said to raise their hands and reach for the sky. Punk said the people in the attendance who have been moved should feel free to raise their hands too and feel the straight edge through them. Punk said this pledge absolves them of all their weaknesses and erases all the bad decisions they have made in their little insignificant lives. Punk said this pledge makes you better than everybody. Punk told them to pledge allegiance to the straight edge society, and went through the pledge with them. Punk said this moment begins the rest of their lives, no longer are they weak like the universe they see before them. Punk said just like Rey Mysterio is going to do; he needs them to show their devotion to the SES with actions as well as words. Luke asked if they were all prepared to accept straight edge. Punk said they need to show commitment and devotion to their new savior, because he is a kind savior but with needs. Punk said they will now show their devotions through actions, as well as words; let the healing begin! Punk Gallows and Serena proceeded to shave the kids heads. After they were done Rey Mysterio came out. Rey said this whole mass induction ceremony was ridiculous. Rey said they all looked silly. Rey asked if he thought this was funny, because everyone will really be laughing this Sunday at Over the Limit, when Punk looks like this! They showed a picture of a bald Punk on the Tron. During commercial Punk said Rey Mysterio thinks he’s cute, but he wants to show Rey what they are going to do to him at Over the Limit. SES beat up the three kids in the ring.
