Punk was their "dude of the week"...
- Miz spoke with Westword.com recently and said the following about his character now being a babyface:

They were telling me I sucked and they hated me. But now, they're embracing me. It's a whole newfound glory and I'm loving every second of it."
- CM Punk was named the New York Daily News' "Dude of the Week" for his meeting with shooting victim Thomas Dotterer in Syracuse. The paper said the following about the meeting:

Dotterer couldn't make it to the WWE event so Punk (showing he's hardly one) came to the hospital before the show for some spirit lifting. A letter Dotterer wrote, read by his son during a fund-raiser, showed he was thinking of Punk. Dotterer asked to be forgiven by those he "sarcastically ripped apart or had opinionated exchanges with."
