- We're live from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado as Michael Cole welcomes us. He's joined by Jerry Lawler. We go to the ring and out comes AJ Lee to kick things off.
AJ talks about Sunday's Money in the Bank pay-per-view and brings out WWE Champion CM Punk. Punk comes out to a big pop. AJ says Punk showed his true feelings for her on SmackDown when he said she is mentally unstable and needs professional help. She says she doesn't and is in control of all her mental faculties at all time. The crowd chants that AJ is crazy. She says nobody has ever cared about her. AJ says when she kissed Punk, she knew it, she knew what she had to do. She says his eyes send love straight to her heart. AJ says Punk turns her on.
AJ says she now knows what she has to do. She drops to one knee and asks Punk to marry her. Before Punk react, Daniel Bryan runs to the ring and chants NO! Bryan looks concerned. He tells AJ to please listen to him because she's about to make the biggest mistake of her life. Bryan says Punk doesn't love AJ. He's just playing her because she is the special referee for Money in the Bank. Bryan says he never stopped having feelings for AJ. Bryan says Punk only cares about one person - himself. Punk says Bryan knows nothing about him, especially how he really feels about AJ. Punk tells Bryan to shut his mouth.
Bryan dares Punk to go ahead and say "I do" if he cares for AJ so much. Bryan says he sees AJ as a special person while Punk just sees her as a special referee. Bryan drops to one knee and asks AJ to marry him. Punk isn't buying it. He asks Bryan where the ring is. Punk wants to go to the back and have a talk with AJ. Bryan tells Punk not to talk down to his future fiancee. The e-mail alert goes off and we've got the return of the Anonymous RAW General Manager. Michael Cole stands up and reveals the podium. The GM is back and says he's running RAW tonight. The GM thinks Punk and AJ make a great couple. He books Punk and AJ vs. Eve Torres and Daniel Bryan for tonight. Bryan isn't happy about this. The GM wishes everyone good luck. AJ says everything is really confusing. AJ says everyone needs some time to think. She's happy about the match tonight because she believes that everything happens for a reason. AJ feels that she's going to walk out of the arena with her future husband. AJ leaves the ring and skips off to the back.
Sheamus vs. Jack Swagger
Back from the break and out comes the World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus. Jack Swagger waits in the ring. The bell rings and Swagger slams Sheamus. Sheamus catches Swagger in White Noise early. Sheamus connects with a Brogue Kick and gets the easy win.
- After the match, Alberto Del Rio appears on the big screen. He's backstage with one of his cars. He declares that he will take the World Heavyweight Title this Sunday. Del Rio gets in the car and drives off. Sheamus takes out his anger on Swagger by delivering another Brogue Kick.
- Zack Ryder is backstage with Santino Marella talking about his role as SmackDown General Manager. Santino says he heard the Anonymous General Manager is somewhere in the building and he's going to find him. Back to commercial.
