- We're live from the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The pyro goes off as Michael Cole welcomes us to RAW. He's joined by hometown hero Jim Ross.
- We go to the ring and out comes WWE Champion CM Punk to a mixed reaction. Paul Heyman comes out behind him holding the WWE Title belt.
Cole mentions that it's, Jim Ross Appreciation Night tonight and Ross feels honored. Heyman raises the title belt as Punk begins to speak. Punk brings up Cena attacking him with the pipe last week. Punk rips the local fans and says Cena showed the actions of a coward. Punk says then he went backstage looking for a doctor but Mick Foley shot him a disrespectful look and said something under his breath. Punk calls Foley a coward. Punk said he did what any man would have done - he put Foley down and kicked him like the dog he is. Punk goes on and says Mrs. Foley should have taught Mick some manners. Punk says some of Foley's words got to him over the past week and he spent time thinking about his stance. Punk is out here to announce that at Hell In a Cell, he will not be facing John Cena.
Punk and Heyman have some private words. Heyman says he and Punk would now like to move on to another piece of business. Heyman shows footage from last week of his wedding proposal to RAW General Manager AJ Lee. Heyman points out that AJ never said no. Heyman says what AJ did do is violate an edict from the WWE Board of Directors. Heyman pulls out the statement from the Board about AJ's actions. AJ was not to put her hands on any Superstar, manager or anyone else, ever again. Heyman says he and Punk believe that AJ must be removed as GM immediately. Heyman proposes that he take her place. Vickie Guerrero comes out and the crowd erupts. She has Dolph Ziggler with her.
Vickie talks about how they have been victims of AJ's power abuse lately. She shows footage from two months ago where she begged that the Board take AJ's job from her, leading to AJ coming out and attacking her. Heyman says this is about Punk, not Vickie. Vickie introduces herself and Dolph. Heyman takes a shot at Ziggler and puts Punk over. Ziggler says they can all agree that AJ is the sole reason for all their problems. Ziggler has the idea of Heyman and Guerrero being co-GM's of RAW. The crowd boos. AJ's music hits and out she comes. AJ says the Board has placed her on probation. She knew she wasn't supposed to touch anyone but she thought they would make an exception for a poor excuse of a man like Heyman. AJ says she has been appointed a coach to help her. Out comes one-half of the WWE Tag Team Champions Daniel Bryan.
Bryan comes out and says it's obvious AJ's mental issues have got worse since he dumped her. Bryan twists his mustache and says he's one hell of a catch. Bryan puts himself over which leads to him yelling that he's the tag team champions. The stage explodes and out comes his partner Kane. Kane says everyone has forgot one thing about AJ - she's a phenomenal kisser. Kane says everything else Bryan said is true except one thing... he is the tag team champions. They start arguing about who is the tag team champions. Punk raises his WWE Title belt and yells while Ziggler holds up his briefcase. AJ starts screaming that they stop and they all do. AJ says this is her show and the crowd pops. AJ announces Punk and Ziggler vs. Team Hell No for tonight. She skips away while everyone else argues.
