- After the RAW intro video, we're live from the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Michael Cole welcomes us to RAW and he's joined by Jerry Lawler. Cole talks about CM Punk attacking Lawler. Lawler takes off his headset and enters the ring.
Lawler talks about what he said at the end of RAW 1000 about Punk. Lawler says he misspoke. Lawler says he apologized to Punk last week but this week, he's the one who wants the apology. Lawler waits as the crowd chants for Punk. The music finally hits and out comes the WWE Champion.
Punk can't believe that Lawler wants the WWE Champion to apologize for doing his job. Punk says he didn't turn his back on anybody and beat the crap out of The Rock because he deserved it. Punk says Lawler turned his back on WWE when he slandered the champion. Punk says he kicked Lawler in his stupid head last week because of his lack of respect. Punk says that's what he does. He will put down anyone who disrespects him. Punk says he is sorry. He's sorry that all it takes to get into the WWE Hall of Fame is to beat a bunch of nobodies from Memphis and get in a slapstick with a Hollywood comedian. Punk rips into Lawler some more. Punk says Lawler is jealous because he's never been WWE Champion. Punk says Lawler finally got his WrestleMania moment and couldn't beat Michael Cole. Punk goes on and says he's sorry about the man Lawler has become.
Punk taunts Lawler now and asks him if he wants to fight. Punk says Lawler is just a commentator while he's the best in the world. Punk says he would embarrass Lawler. Lawler says he came out here for an apology, not a fight. Punk taunts him some more. Punk promises one thing - Lawler will leave embarrassed tonight, either because Punk does it or because he backed down from a fight. Punk tells Lawler to think about it and leaves the ring talking about respect. Lawler says he will think about it and heads back to the announce table. We go to commercial.
Ryback vs. Jack Swagger
Back from the break and Jack Swagger waits in the ring. Out next comes his opponent Ryback.
The bell rings and they go at it. Ryback with a big boot and down goes Swagger. Ryback slams his head on the mat a few times and then slams him on his face. Swagger drop toe holds Ryback and takes him down with a shoulder. Swagger slams Ryback and yells at him. Ryback blocks the Swagger Bomb in the corner and the ankle lock. Ryback takes Swagger to the corner and unloads on him. Ryback drops Swagger on top of his head and works him over on the mat.
Ryback starts the "Feed Me More" chants and hits a big clothesline. Ryback scoops Swagger for Shellshocked and the win.
Natalya vs. Layla
Back from the break and Natalya waits in the ring as WWE Divas Champion Layla makes her way out for a non-title match.
We get a look back at last week where Kaitlyn became the new #1 contender. Before the match can begin, Vickie Guerrero comes out. She says the match needs to be over quickly because she has an important announcement. The bell rings and here we go as Vickie screams some more. They lock up and go to the mat while Vickie watches from the steel steps.
