The ring collapse from last night's PPV is shown.
Triple H's music hits and he enters the ring. He talks about friends in the business and how he considered himself to be lucky to have friends like Shawn Michaels, Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman (no mention of Scott Hall). Triple H said that despite what happened over the last few months, he didn't expect one of his best friends to almost break his neck. He said that Nash broke his heart, and now he's going to take it out on Nash. He called Nash out and tells him to get in the ring. HHH said he doesn't want to talk about it, he just wants to kick Nash's a--.
John Laurinaitis comes out and says that he heard a rumor that Nash was here, but he also heard that he was at home. HHH told Laurinaitis to shut up and not enter the ring or it won't end well. Laurinaitis stood on the apron and told HHH not to embarrass the company. HHH said that Laurinaitis still reports to him since he's still COO and that Laurinaitis better find Nash if they don't want him to embarrass the company. He tells Laurinaitis to offer Nash a contract that he can't refuse or else he'll go to Nash's house and get arrested for what he'll do. Triple H storms off, and Laurinaitis tells Triple H to let him work this out. Triple H is on the stage telling Laurinaitis to shut up when he's attacked from behind by Nash, who drills him with a sledgehammer. Officials come out and Nash heads to the back while Laurinaitis tended to HHH.
Nash is shown backstage walking through the hallway. Officials are then shown carrying HHH through the back. HHH shrugs them off and tells them he's OK, and then collapses to the ground. Officials tend to HHH as we head to commercial.
Back from commercial, and Michael Cole said that HHH has to be escorted to a hospital due to the injuries suffered by Nash. Triple H is shown backstage being put on a stretcher. Nash orders officials to stop, and then picks HHH up, who is on the stretcher, and nails him in the face with the sledgehammer again. Officials run in trying to stop Nash, who eventually leaves. They place HHH on a gurney and load him in an ambulance as we head to another commercial.
Back from commercial, and Nash's attack is shown again.
Randy Orton's music hits and he heads to the ring.
Good match. The finish saw Orton nail Christian with an RKO. Rhodes threw Orton outside of the ring and Sheamus tried to capitalize, but botched a Brogue kick. He then picked Rhodes up and hit the Celtic Cross
to get the win for his team.
A recap of Awesome Truth attacking John Cena last night at Vengeance is shown.
Laurinaitis is shown on the phone backstage telling Stephanie that HHH is OK. Otunga is sitting on a couch. Once Laurinaitis gets off the phone, Otunga tells Laurinaitis that Stephanie is just upset. John Cena enters and Otunga leaves. Cena says that he wants Laurinaitis to quit. Laurinaitis says that he'll give Cena a tag match against Miz and R-Truth tonight, with Laurinaitis picking his tag partner. Cena made a Dynamic Dudes reference which got no reaction and walked off.

Back from commercial and Ricardo Rodriguez introduces Alberto Del Rio. Del Rio says he's beat Cena, so he's done with him. He said that no one can beat him and that he'll be champion for a long, long time. CM Punk's music hits.
Punk is at the top of the stage with a mic and heads to the ring. Loud "CM Punk" chants. Punk notes that he beat Del Rio several times, including four weeks ago on RAW. Punk stated that he never received his return title match, and asks Del Rio if he has the cajones to put the title on the line against him. Del Rio says that Punk isn't worthy, and that Punk didn't win his match at Vengeance, which makes him a loser. "Losers don't deserve title shots." Del Rio then tells Punk to come and see him when he gets a victory, because at this moment, he is in the back of the line. Punk said that "maybe" all of that is true, and that "maybe" if Del Rio won't give him a title shot, he'll put him to sleep anyway. Laurinaitis interrupts and heads to the ring.
Laurinaitis said this won't happen under his watch. Laurinaitis said that both men had good points, and he's thinking of a match pitting Punk vs. Del Rio at Survivor Series. Punk asked what the catch was. Laurinaitis said that there is one thing that Punk has to do, and that is to tell him that he respects him. Punk asks if he's Aretha Franklin. He said that respect is earned, not given. Laurinaitis said that Punk is about to make a mistake, and to swallow his pride and say it. Punk says OK, and says, "I respect you, Funkman," in a gravelly voice. Laurinaitis gives him one last chance to say it. Punk finally says it, and says that he respects that every week Laurinaitis comes out with this deer-in-the-lights look on his face. He respects that he was a bad wrestler that ascended to the top of the WWE corporate structure, and respects that someone with so little talent has done so much. He then asked if that suited him. Laurinaitis said "no" and that he'll take another week to think about it. Punk said that while he thinks about it, think about this... Punk proceeds to attack Del Rio. He went for the GTS, but Rodriguez interfered. Del Rio bailed and Punk nailed Rodriguez with the GTS.

Kelly Kelly were shown watching a monitor backstage and liked what they saw.
Back from break, and John Morrison is all set to do a job. Wade Barrett is on Morrison-beating duty this week.
Wade Barrett vs. John Morrison
Barrett spent the majority of the match beating the holy hell out of Morrison. Morrison managed to get some offense in towards the end of the match. He went for a flying splash off the ropes, but Barrett wasn't able to catch Morrison properly and hit a botched Wasteland. Barrett picked Morrison up and hit the Wasteland again to get the win.
Nash's attack on Triple H is shown again. Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler give an update on Triple H, and say that he suffered a concussion and possible broken neck. Lawler gets on Cole's case for Twetting all night, and Cole says he's had enough.
Cole takes a mic and is upset about JR tweeting rumors about him and says that JR sent out some pics on Twitter, and goes on to show a bunch of pics humiliating Ross. And they're not even in Oklahoma. Cole then says he wants to end this once and for all, and challenges JR to the "Michael Cole challenge" for next week in Atlanta. He'll disclose the rules later, but if JR beats him he'll get Cole's seat, otherwise he'll quit.
Another promo is shown of the Muppets guest hosting RAW next week.
Zack Ryder is interviewed backstage and was asked if he's nervous. Ryder said he's excited and started to cut a promo before he is ambushed by Awesome Truth. Miz and Truth put a beating on Ryder, which ends with Miz planting Ryder with a giant boot. They then head to the ring.
Miz and Truth head to the ring with mics in hand and have the music cut. Miz said that Triple H tried to stop the revolution that they started, and look at Triple H now. Truth said HHH got what he deserved. Miz said that they stood up to the faces of this conspiracy last night. Truth said that everyone thought they were done last night, but the party is just getting started and that this is only the beginning. Truth said that nothing will save Cena until he gets got. Miz tells Cena that he can't rise above them. We head to commercial.

Before they get to the back, Laurinaitis says that he will allow Cena to choose a partner to face Miz and Truth at Survivor Series.
Cena gets the mic and asks if this is another setup. Cena then asks if he can choose anybody he wants? A "Rocky" chant breaks out. The fans know what's coming. Cena says that if he's going to defeat the Miz and R-Truth, then his partner is going to have to be somebody that will "bring it." Loud "Rocky" chants. Cena then chooses his partner to be The Rock. R-Truth starts flipping out while Miz looks worried.
