We come back to David Otunga in the ring with his sweater vest and coffee. He says he can honestly say, he's never had a boss as amazing as John Laurinaitis, and he can only hope the the Board of Directors does the right thing and keeps Laurinaitis. He asks us to pray with him, and he does what is now known as Tebowing in the middle of the ring. After a moment, Justin Roberts informs us that, per orders of Triple H, Otunga will compete in a match right now. Sheamus's music hits, and the 2012 Royal Rumble winner comes out for the second match of the night.
David Otunga vs Sheamus
Otunga tries to talk his way out of this one, but Sheamus catches a kick from the Harvard Lawler, and tries to go for the Celtic Cross early, but Otunga rolls out of the ring. Back in the ring, Sheamus hits him with a Polish Hammer, then traps him in the ropes to hit his patented Forearm shots, after ripping Otunga's shirt to harm his chest more. Sheamus goes for a Powerslam, but Otunga holds onto the ropes, and then he hits a DDT, but only gets a one count. Otunga then stomps Sheamus in the corner. Sheamus hits the Brogue Kick out of nowhere for the win.
Backstage, we see Chris Jericho walking to the ring, and he has something to say after this commercial break.
Back to Raw, the lights go out, and Jericho makes what has now become his normal entrance. We replay what happened last week with him attacking CM Punk. Jericho says the end of the world as we know it has arrived. He says the end of plagiarism, and liars appearing to be something they not has came, and everyone that steps in this ring is a Chris Jericho wannabe. He says he made these thoughts popular or invented them, and everyone in the back is stealing them. He points out to a few specific fans and calls them wannabes. He says he manipulated all of us without saying a single word, and he trolled all of us. He says everyone is a wannabe, including The Miz, Kofi Kingston, R-Truth, Dolph Zigglers, and CM Punk, and he lists valid reasons for all of them of how he did their stuff first. He says Punk is the worst because he says he's the best in the world when he's not, and he's nothing more than a Chris Jericho wannabe, and he knows that Chris Jericho is the best in the world at what he does. He says Jericho has done everything you could possibly do in the WWE. He says it's the end of the world as we know it because he's coming back to claim what is his. He's interrupted by CM Punk, and to quote the best announcer in history, business just picked up. Punk is wearing his new "In Punk We Trust" shirt, and he has a microphone in hand.
Once in the ring, Punk acts as if he's going to say something, but instead drops the microphone, and instead holds up his WWE Championship. Punk then turns his back on Jericho, and Jericho looks to strike, but doesn't. Punk smiles and leaves the ring as his music hits. Jericho starts yelling at him, calling him a wannabe, and yelling at him for not saying anything.
Wade Barrett is out first for this tag team match, followed by the WWE Intercontinental Champion, Cody Rhodes. The Great Khali is out next, and it's so hard to do partial results with this embarrassment to the wrestling world around. Randy Orton is out last to a pretty big reaction.
