More back and forth action. 2 count for Layla. Layla with a crossbody from the corner for another pin attempt. Layla slams Natalya on the back of her head and hits her with the butt bump. Natalya goes to the floor and catches Layla's dropkick with the apron. Layla gets tangled in the apron and Natalya works her over. They come back in and she knocks Layla with a shot from behind. Natalya goes for the Sharpshooter but it's blocked. Natalya comes back in and they go at it. Layla with another roll up. Layla with the kick to the back of the head for the win.
- After the match, Vickie comes in the ring and tells Layla to be gone. Layla stares her down before exiting the ring. Vickie talks about AJ Lee making the Chris Jericho vs. Dolph Ziggler match at last week's RAW where Jericho had his contract terminated. Vickie isn't happy about the stipulation of Ziggler's contract being on the line. Vickie calls it an abuse of power and says it's unfair. She says nobody on the roster has the guts to speak up to the General Manager except her. Vickie tells the Board of Directors that it's time to put RAW back in the hands of an adult, someone like her. Not some mentally deranged child like AJ, she says. AJ's music hits and out she comes.
AJ is all smiles until she smacks Vickie out of nowhere. AJ tackles Vickie and they go at it. Vickie escapes and runs away while AJ looks on and goes back to smiling.
- Cole and Lawler go back to talking about Triple H. We get a video package of Triple H's days with DX.
- Back from the break and we see footage from last week where Daniel Bryan is in an anger management class. Bryan raises his hand and says he doesn't have issues like the rest of the losers here. A little kid comes in wearing a goat mask and Bryan gets upset. Bryan says he is handsome and wonders who set this up. Bryan calls the kid a brat and yells at him to take the mask off. It turns out the kid is the teachers kid and is playing a goat in his school play.
- Cole looks at some tweets from actor Dominic Monaghan, tonight's Social Media Ambassador and star of WWE Studios' The Day. Cole also shows a tweet from CM Punk where he says he will let Lawler have the first punch if he agrees to fight him. Cole asks Lawler what his decision is. Lawler stands on top of the announcers table and gets a small chant from the crowd. Lawler says the nobodies he beat in Memphis include names like Jesse Ventura, Superstar Billy Graham, Dutch Mantell, Harley Race and others. Lawler goes on and brings up Andy Kaufman. Lawler says he knows he's not the best in the world but he doesn't think Punk is either. Lawler says he's never backed down and he's not going to start tonight. Lawler says damn right he will fight Punk tonight and the crowd pops. Lawler heads to the back to get ready as we go back to commercial.
Back from the break and out comes John Cena to the ring. Out next comes WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz.
Cole is by himself on this one as Lawler is backstage getting ready. The bell rings and they lock up. Miz takes Cena to the mat with a headlock. Cena turns it around and takes Miz to the mat now. More back and forth action as we go to commercial.
