We are back to Raw, and they put over the Royal Rumble card for this weekend. CM Punk then comes out for the main event of the night, though something tells me this won't end up happening. At least that's what a little birdie said to me. John Laurinaitis doesn't come out after his name is repeated a few times. Johnny finall comes out wearing a sleveless Future Endeavored shirt. Cole keeps saying the Laurinaitis won a World Title for AJPW, which is completely false. He was a three time tag champ there. Cole also mistakenly says "Stan Henson," instead of Hansen. Laurinaitis says he has some unfortunate news from the board of directors. Otunga reads the paper, which says that the board is concerned about the way Laurinaitis has ran Raw, and that he said he would intentionally abuse his authority at the Royal Rumble. Therefore, the board has decided that his GM status will be under review. Next week on Raw, he will receive a formal job evaluation to see if he will continue as GM, or terminated. His job evaluation will be conducted by Triple H, the COO. Laurinaitis starts to talk, but CM Punk takes his shirt off and says what this means is that if he intentionally screws him at the Rumble, he's out of a job, and clearly now there's nothing stopping Punk from knocking his teeth out his face before Triple H shows him the door.
Laurinaitis says that the Board is right, and he would like to apologize to the fans and Punk for any wrong-doing he's done. Laurinaitis also says Mick Foley is now in the Royal Rumble match, and that he was always going to call his title match right down the middle, and he only said that last week because he was mad. CM Punk says Ace is like the spoiled little girl who gets worried at Christmas time. He says if Triple H has ever inherited one thing from his father in law, it's the ability to say, "YOU'RE FIRED!" Ace says he took over TR when it was in the dark ages because of JR, and turned it into an entity. Ace says this match cannot happen now, but Otunga will be his substitute, and Otunga takes out Punk, but this match has never officially started. Otunga strikes Punk in the corner, but Punk takes him down with a tackle, and locks on the Anaconda Vice. Otunga quickly taps out, but this was never a match. Punk then turns his attention to Laurinaitis, Mule kicks Otunga, then hits a head kick. Laurinaitis stepped toward Punk, but then back again. They exchange words, and Laurinaitis offers his hand to Punk. Punk is fuming and shakes his hand, but Punk then picks him up and hits the GTS on Laurinaitis and starts going crazy. This crowd is finally woken up, and they're going nuts. Ziggler then comes out of nowhere from behind and hits the Zig Zag! Raw ends with Ziggler standing tall over the WWE Champion.
