- Tonight's WWE RAW Supershow opens with a look back at Big Show explaining his heel turn from last week.
- We're live from the Bi Lo Center in Greenville, South Carolina. Justin Roberts introduces Michael Cole and here he comes to the ring. Cole brings out John Cena and says he has a lot of explaining to do. Cena's music hits and out he comes.
Cole reminds Cena about the two knockout punches from Big Show in a 24 hour period. Cole talks about Show taking out Brodus Clay, Alex Riley, Santino Marella, Zack Ryder, Kofi Kingston and R-Truth in the last week. Cole says this could have been prevented if Cena had done the right thing - supported Big Show in the first place. Cena cuts in and rips John Laurinaitis, calling him power hungry. Cena says he may not have stood up for Show that night but he was going to take him out for good at the pay-per-view. Cole calls Cena self-centered and wrapped up in his own ego. Cole says it's not all about Cena - Big Show did what he had to do to feed his family. Cole says Big Show decided it was time to teach everyone a lesson - Big Show is no longer a businessman, he's a 7 foot giant that nobody can beat. Cena says Show is just a man who decided he wanted a wallet the size of his waist line. Cena says we have all had tough times and when you have tough times, you make a decision. Cole says maybe Cena is jealous of Big Show. Cole says he has supported Cena since day one but he's seeing things different lately. Cole says Cena isn't interested anymore and he's overrated. Cole hopes Big Show puts Cena out of our misery at No Way Out in the steel cage. Cole reminds Cena he can't strike an announcer because it's prohibited. The music hits and out comes John Laurinaitis on his scooter.
Laurinaitis is going to let Cena pick an opponent for tonight but says Big Show isn't here tonight because his new contract has selective dates. Laurinaitis says he has retired from singles competition after defeating Cena at Over the Limit. Laurinaitis says anyone else is game. Cena says tonight's RAW is going to be extra special because his opponent is Michael Cole. Cena's music hits but Cole starts to protest. Cole says Cena can't do that. Cole pleads with Laurinaitis but Ace just rides away on his scooter. Cena gets his match and celebrates with the fans at ringside as Cole yells for Laurinaitis to come back.
- Back from the break and Cole catches up with Laurinaitis backstage. Cole begs him not to let the match go through. Laurinaitis says there's a rumor going around that everyone's job is going to be evaluated soon. Laurinaitis says he's all about People Power. Cole says the people don't want to see Cena beat the hell out of them. The crowd pops. Laurinaitis tells Cole to go do his job and get ready for his match. Laurinaitis tells Cole not to call him Johnny any more.
