Shawn Michaels' music hits and we're off! HBK enters the ring and says he just couldn't stay away. He talks about missing the fans, and how they made him. HBK says he's not the guest host, and makes a cheap plug for his new TV show. The crowd was quiet for the plug. CM Punk's music hits and he heads to the ring with Otunga and McGuillicutty, and Michael Cole noted that Mason Ryan wasn't here tonight due to an injury he suffered over the weekend.
Punk mocked HBK being back, and said he's leaving after July 17th. HBK says it's a win-win since the people will not have to see him anymore. Punk made fun of HBK losing to the Undertaker in his last match, and said he's going to go out a winner with the WWE championship. HBK says that he's better than Punk, and Punk asks if that is a challenge. HBK follows up with a superkick on Otunga and the RAW GM chimes in and says that Punk will have the first match tonight on RAW since he's leaving soon.
Booker T is backstage and spins the RAW roulette, and it's a "?" match, which means a mystery opponent and it's Kane. With Punk distracted, HBK hits another superkick on McGuillicutty and says, "good luck with all of that." Kane's music hits and our first match will be underway after the break.

Kofi Kingston is backstage with Booker T and is about to spin the wheel to see what kind of match he'll have against Dolph Ziggler.

He picks the stip that should have happened last week, and that is to have Vickie banned from ringside. We're off to commercial.
Kofi heads to the ring and Vickie heads to the ramp. Just as she's about to introduce Dolph Ziggler, officials escort her to the back. Ziggler then heads to the ring.

Punk headed to the ramp and took the mic. He said that before he leaves in three weeks, he has a lot of things he has to get off of his chest. He said that he hates the idea that people think he's the best, because he is. He said that Cena is the best at kissing Vince McMahon's ass, almost as good as Hulk Hogan or "Dwayne." He said he's been vilified because he was a protege of Paul Heyman, and noted how he and Brock Lesnar were Paul Heyman guys except unlike Brock, he will leave with the title. He said he's the best, even on commentary, and how he's gotten the shaft by not being featured on TV shows, videos, etc. He said the fact that Dwayne is in the main event next year makes him sick. He said the people that are cheering him are why he's leaving, because they buy the products that he's not on. He said he might defend the title in New Japan or go back to ROH, and said hi to Colt Cabana. Punk said McMahon is not a billionaire because he surrounds himself with "yes men." He says that he would like to think that the company will be better once Vince dies, but his idiot daughter and son-in-law will take over. He continues to go off, but his mic is cut off and the show goes off of the air. Probably the best money promo I've seen in the company in years.
