Beth Phoenix vs. Natalya
The women shake hands and lock-up. Cole and Josh talk about all the Tweets between the all the women recently. Josh says Natalya has blonde hair as well, so she could have been the one who attacked Kaitlyn. Beth backs Natalya up with a finger in the chest and gets a slap in the face for it. Beth pauses and hits a double leg takedown. The crowd chants, "Let's go Buffalo." Beth plays to the hometown crowd and goes to the 2nd ropes and leaps off into a Sharpshooter. Natalya drags her to the center of the ring but Beth crawls back and finally reaches the rope and the hold is broken. Beth counters Natalya with a Glam Slam and is shocked that Natalya kicked out. They trade roll-ups and Beth comes out with the pin.
Winner by pin: Beth Phoenix
Beth cries as her arm is raised. Eve's music hits and she comes on the stage and says she wants to apologize for acting in the heat of the moment on RAW. She says until the investigation is completed, she is suspended. Beth protests that she didn't do it. Natalya yells at her to leave her out of this. We see a graphic of CM Punk saying "Pipe Bomb" as we go to commercial. An ad for Main Event on Ion is shown.
We're back as Booker T and Teddy Long talk about the tag team division. Booker proposes an 8-Team Single Elimination Tournament to determine the #1 contenders to face Kane & Daniel Bryan at Hell in a Cell. Beth comes in complaining about being suspended and Eve walks in as well. Booker reverses the decision. Eve apologizes and says there must have been some miscommunication. She says that Teddy told her to do it. Teddy says he didn't tell her anything. Eve says Teddy is jealous and walks away. Booker looks at Teddy all funny and tells him to give him some time to think about this.
We go to Cole and Josh who talk about the Susan G. Komen initiative. We go to the RAW Rebound of Mick Foley and CM Punk. We see Miz looking in a mirror backstage as he gets make-up for Miz TV. We go to commercial.
We see a promo for Saturday Morning Slam and we return to Zack Ryder in the ring at the end of his entrance. Wade Barrett is introduced.
Zack Ryder vs. Wade Barrett
Barrett takes control with smash-mouth offense. He hits a slam for a 2 count. Barrett hits shots in the corner and bounces Ryder off the ropes and delivers a backbreaker across his knee. Ryder works his way up and hits a faceplant and a dropkick off the 2nd ropes. Ryder calls for the Boot but Barrett slides out of the ring and gets caught with a boot to the face through the ropes. Ryder goes out and brings him back in. Barrett hits a vicious clothesline which sends Ryder to the outside. Barrett brings him in and hits the Souvenir for the win.
Winner by pin: Wade Barrett
Barrett celebrates on the corner ropes. We go to more from Kane and Bryan from Monday. We see the part where they do the When Harry Met Sally bit with Mae Young. We go to Sheamus walking to the arena for his appearance on Miz TV and go to commercial.
We're back and the Miz TV set is set-up in the ring. Miz is in the ring and he welcomes us to the show and begins to put his show over as Sheamus' music interrupts him and he comes to the ring. Sheamus throws one of the stools out of the ring, takes Miz' mic and talks about Ryback's appearance on the 1st Miz TV. He asks him questions but keeps taking the mic away before he can answer and answers for him. Miz says last time he checked he was Intercontinental Champion. He talks about being in movies, Mick Foley's book, and his own radio show. He says people pay to see him. Sheamus says nobody pays to see him. Miz asks why Sheamus doesn't seem worried about the #1 Contenders Match later tonight. Sheamus calls him a loud-mouthed, frog-faced, Hollywood-wannabe. He says nobody takes the World Title more seriously than him. He says he knows what these people paid for and he will be happy to give it to them.
