John Cena's music hits to open the show and he heads to the ring. Cena brings up the Rock, and the place goes crazy, but says he isn't here tonight. He plugs his tag match with Rock against Awesome Truth at Survivor Series, and talks about Rock returning to RAW next week. Cena says he will face Awesome Truth tonight, and his partner is a future Hall of Famer. Miz and Truth come out to the top of the stage.
Miz brings up that even though Cena beat him last week, he did something Triple H, HBK and countless others couldn't do... pin him at WrestleMania. Miz said that they were embarrassed by Cena last week, and it will never happen again. Truth takes the mic and says that whoever Cena teams up with is "gonna get got." Cena hypes up his partner again, but is cut off before he could reveal his partner, with Miz saying "it doesn't matter who your partner is!" Miz and Truth then enter the ring and stalk Cena and attack Cena. Zack Ryder's music hits and he hits the ring and helps Cena clear the ring of the heels. They do a "Woo woo woo" and Mega Powers handshake as Miz and Truth retreat to the back.
Kevin Nash returning tonight is plugged.
Dolph Ziggler and Vickie Guerrero are shown heading to the ring.
Next week's three-hour RAW is plugged.
John Morrison vs. Dolph Ziggler
Really good match. Guerrero jumped on the apron to distract Morrison and Ziggler rolled him up. Morrison reversed the roll up and pinned the US Champion for the three count.
Team Orton vs. Team Barrett is announced for the Survivor Series.
Mason Ryan comes out. It's hard to believe, but he looks even bigger than last week. A hype package is shown featuring Ryan.
