Eve and Teddy Long argue in office. Long says he did not call for the suspension of Beth Phoenix. Long says he knows Eve had something to do with Kaitlyn's attack and that Booker is not an experienced GM. Booker interrupts and tells Eve to give them a moment. Booker tells him they are both assets and he can't have them bickering. They fist-bump and Booker tells him he has some things to take care of and that he will 'holla' at him later. We go to commercial.
We're back at the end of Big Show's entrance and Tensai comes out sans Sakamoto.
Big Show vs. Tensai
They go at it with strikes and Tensai takes over in the corner. Show hits a massive shot and gets out of the corner. Show uses Tensai's own moment to take him out of the ring and goes out and hits a clothesline. Show brings him back in but misses with the elbow. Tensai hits the splash but comes up empty in the corner and Show hits a spear. Sheamus' music hits and runs down and hits the Brogue Kick on Tensai and walks up the ramp with a smile as Show glares at him.
Winner by disqualification: Tensai
Show roars in anger, in the ring.
We go to the RAW Rebound. We see a graphic for the main event and go to commercial.
We're back as CM Punk makes entrances with Paul Heyman to a sea of boos. It is strange to hear boos when that song hits. Dolph Ziggler is next with Vickie Guerrero.
CM Punk vs. Dolph Ziggler
They get in each other's faces and argue. Punk pushes Ziggler and he pushes back. They go back and forth and Punk applies a headlock. Ziggler reverses and drops Punk. Ziggler lands a dropkick, Punk goes for a GTS and they go to a stalemate as we go to commercial.
We're back and Punk is in control of Ziggler's back. Heyman raises the title at ringside in approval. Punk hits a side suplex and goes up top but is met by Ziggler. They both punch each other off and to the outside. Heyman checks on Punk and gives him a pep talk. The men make it back in the ring together and trade near-falls. Ziggler hits the Fame-asser for 2. Punk connects with a roundhouse for 2. Punk hits a slam and goes up top but takes too long and is caught by Ziggler and brought down in a slam. Ziggler misses in the corner and falls victim to the GTS.
Winner by pin: CM Punk
Punk gets on the announce table with his title and says he's heard it from Bret Hart, Jim Ross, and everybody. He says he knows what he has to do to get respect. He says for that very reason, he will NOT face John Cena at Hell in a Cell.
