We start with a video recap of Vince McMahon's appearance from RAW when he got knocked out by Big Show. The opening theme plays and pyro goes off in the arena in Manchester, NH. We are 48 hours away from No Way Out and we will get an update on Vince's condition later.
AJ's music plays and she makes her way down to the ring. Cole calls her a wackjob. They show the video of AJ kissing Kane from Monday's RAW. AJ just wants to say something before the show started. She says there is a very simple reason why she kissed Kane. Vickie Guerrero interrupts her with an "Excuse me!" She says nobody is talking about her kissing Kane but they are talking about the #1 Contender for the World Title, Dolph Ziggler.
Ziggler joins her as they walk to the ring. Ziggler says he stole the show like always on RAW and he is the next champ. He is not going to let a 95 pound, crazy Hot-Topic employee like AJ take his spotlight. AJ tells him the bleach on his hair has made him delusional. She calls Vickie his grandma and Vickie slaps her. AJ seems to like it. Punk's music hits.
AJ looks smitten as Punk comes to the ring and checks her face from the slap. Punk gets a huge reaction from the crowd and tells Vickie that they don't have to excuse her or listen to her. He says she's a broken record along with Dolph always choking. Daniel Bryan's music hits and he comes down the ramp.
Bryan says what he is seeing is priceless. He calls Punk the hero for coming to AJ's rescue. He tells Punk AJ's got him wrapped around her finger. He enjoys watching Punk and Kane make the same mistake Bryan did: AJ. Sheamus joins them. He stands with Punk and AJ and tells Bryan AJ had nothing to do with his losing the title. Sheamus tells Ziggler he was impressive at RAW but he will not survive at the PPV. Sheamus calls for a ref to start the match right now.
AJ says she has some business to take care of first and she lunges toward Vickie but Punk restrains her.

Sheamus stars off with Bryan and gets the better of him with his power; he hits a rolling Senton and tags Punk who comes in with an elbow off the top. Punk gets 1 on Ziggler. Punk tags Sheamus who comes in by way of a shoulderblock. Sheamus hits a bodyslam in the corner and tags Punk back in who hits a nice delayed vertical suplex on Ziggler for 2.

Both men tag out and Sheamus overpowers Ziggler. Things get out of control. Punk and Bryan go at it on the outside. Ziggler goes for a Zig Zag in the ring but Sheamus counters with White Noise.
