Cole & Lawler go back and forth about their upcoming match, as JR's Sooner music hits to a nice pop from the crowd. During his entire entrance, Cole taunts him from his litter box. , which still has police tape on it for some reason. JR eventually starts going after Cole, literally rattling his cage. Swagger then comes from out of nowhere, but is cut off by Lawler and we have chaos before the match is to start, after the break.
Back from break, and this match is underway, while Matthews is solo on commentary. Cole continues to rant at ringside as JR cheers on Lawler. Cole running his mouth during this match is more annoying than Vickie's "Excuse Me" bit, making it look like a quiet walk in the park. Matthews has apparently been told by producers in the back to stay off commentary, just so that the TV audience can hear Cole & JR at ringside. Sorry guys, I had to mute this thing halfway through, as Cole's mouth was like nails on a chalkboard. When Jerry finally worked back and had Swagger under control, Cole got on the apron long enough to distract King for Swagger to hit him from behind. Cole remained on the apron until JR came around and pulled him off of it, much to the crowd's delight. When Swagger came over to take out JR, Lawler came from behind to get the roll up and the pinfall for the win.
Winner: Jerry "The King" Lawler
Postmatch: Lawler & JR celebrate at ringside as Cole & Swagger both look dumbstruck. It is said here by Matthews that because of the win, Lawler gets to face Cole at Extreme Rules & Lawler gets to choose the match AND the stipulation. Cole gets into the ring and starts berating Swagger for losing the match, even repeatedly attempting to give Swagger the "Finger Poke of Doom" & slapping Swagger across the face. Swagger only fumes & does not go after Cole, who is retreating back to the ramp. Lawler picks up the mic to name his terms. He says that he makes their match a tag match between him & JR versus Cole & Swagger. He asks Swagger what he thinks of that his partner is the guy who just slapped the taste out of his mouth.
Matthews then takes us to a clip highlighting Mania's match between Taker & HHH, featuring comments from other superstars. Christian, Austin, Big Show, CM Punk, Edge, Orton, Patterson, Cena, and The Rock finishing with H's words from Raw last week. Before the break, we are shown Cena with Edge backstage, as Cena simply nods & shakes Edge's hands as he walks to the ring. His announcement is coming up next. Truly surreal to see the amount of respect between those two there.
