WWE Champion CM Punk challenged Mick Foley to a traditional Survivor Series Match

CHARLOTTE, NC - Battered, beaten and bruised, CM Punk strode into Monday Night Raw the very image of defiance, if not necessarily health, following his controversial victory over Ryback at Hell in a Cell. With his ribs taped and a gait in his step, The Second City Saint looked like he'd gone ten rounds with a Mack truck but had lost none of his signature bile as he addressed the WWE Universe.

"You all thought he was unbeatable," sneered Punk. "You thought I was going to be just another victim in this trail of bodies left behind by the monster. You were wrong ... you were all wrong and you were proven wrong by me. For 344 days you were proven wrong by me."

"I've defeated every single one of your heroes," Punk gloated, citing his past defeats of the beloved Rey Mysterio and Randy Orton as evidence of his greatness, before turning attention to his series of victories over "the resident Superman" of WWE, John Cena. "As far as Ryback's concerned, he's not even in the conversation." (PHOTOS)

Of course, per Punk's M.O., he turned attention next to himself, looking to celebrate his own victory but disappointed that the win was "marred" by the injustice perpetrated by Brad Maddox. Punk denied involvement in Maddox's controversial interference and claimed the only thing he was guilty of was taking advantage of the situation Maddox presented him.

In other words, a win is a win, and Punk, the victor, stood tall before the crowd and declared that he was "ineraseable." "I am The Best in the World," Punk preened, but The Voice of the Voiceless' latest manifesto was brought to a screeching halt, incidentally, by the screeching sound of a car cash through the speakers. Which, of course, could only mean one thing:

Mick Foley had arrived. And boy, was he mad.

The Hardcore Legend laced into The Second City Saint with the same fire as a few weeks earlier, accusing Punk of taking the easy way out of the "choice" Foley had presented him, and disrespecting the tradition that defined the WWE Championship.

At this, The Voice of the Voiceless had himself an idea. Survivor Series was coming up, the same pay-per-view where he'd won the WWE Title a year earlier. Foley, who kept "popping up like a bad penny," obviously felt he had business with the champion. So why not settle their differences in a traditional, 5-on-5 Survivor Series Match.

Foley didn't even hesitate. "You're on."

"I'll tell you right now," Punk said, "Whoever you pick, we're gonna get rid of them."

Punk didn't have time to expound on this, though, because that was when Ryback's music thundered through the arena and the man himself marched down to the ring with feeding time on his mind. The champion wanted no more of his monstrous foe, however, and wasted no time in making himself scarce with Paul Heyman at his side. It would appear the rumors of Ryback being in Punk's rearview mirror were greatly exaggerated.
