Winner and New #1 Contender: Kaitlyn
- After the match, Kaitlyn goes to ringside and has a staredown with Eve.
- Michael Cole talks about Jerry Lawler returning later tonight and we see footage from Lawler's scary night on RAW several weeks back.
- Back from the break and Jim Ross is in the ring with Michael Cole. JR calls out Jerry Lawler and he makes his way to the ring to a big pop from the crowd.
Lawler hugs Cole and Ross before taking the mic. The crowd chants his name. Lawler is overwhelmed and thanks the fans. Lawler says there was a time he didn't think he would return so for this night to happen is big. Lawler gets choked up as he talks about everyone supporting him. Lawler thanks everyone from the bottom of his heart and says it's great to be back. The music hits and out comes WWE Champion CM Punk with Paul Heyman. Lawler joins Ross and Cole on commentary.
Punk says he is glad Lawler left the ring because if he didn't, he would have beaten Lawler to death. Punk has words for the fans now. He brings up Lawler drying and coming back to life. Punk calls Lawler a zombie and says everyone knows he loves zombies. Punk goes on and says who cares about how long Lawler was dead. Punk says he has a number that means something - 358, the number of days he has been WWE Champion. Punks brings up tying Diesel as the 9th longest reigning champion in history. Punk says in one week he will be here celebrating one year because he will beat Ryback and John Cena at Survivor Series. Punk says he's glad Lawler is back and glad he will have a front row seat for Sunday. Punk tells Lawler to try and not die before Sunday. Lawler says the only thing on life support is Punk's run as WWE Champion. Punk goes to invite Lawler in the ring and Heyman starts coughing and drops to the mat. Punk throws the X symbol up and begins giving Heyman CPR, obviously mocking Lawler's incident. The crowd boos. Heyman sits up and they laugh at Lawler. Mick Foley's music hits and out he comes.
Foley comes out and they have words. Foley says he's going to let the fans pick the final member of Team Foley. Punks rips into the fans, Foley and his team. Foley yells and tells Punk to shut up. Foley is highly pissed off at Punk for mocking Lawler's incident. Foley says Cena or Ryback will take the title from Punk on Sunday. Punk says Foley doesn't matter and he doesn't belong out here because it doesn't involve him. Foley says some of it does. Foley reveals he will be the special enforcer for Punk vs. Cena tonight.
- We see Brad Maddox backstage warming up. He has a guy filming him with a handheld camera. Still to come, an eight-man tag team match. Back to commercial.
- Back from the break and Punk is backstage with Heyman ranting about defending his title. Punk tells Heyman to fix everything.

We go to the ring and out comes Sin Cara followed by Rey Mysterio. Everyone else is waiting in the ring. Rosa Mendes is at ringside. Titus starts with Gabriel and tags in Young for double teaming. Epico comes in and keeps control of Gabriel with a suplex and a 2 count. Ricardo Rodriguez comes down to ringside and has a note for Rosa. This upsets Primo and Gabriel takes him down. Rey comes in and goes at it with Primo. Rey drops him for 619 but Primo counters. Rey pulls Primo to the floor and moonsaults out onto him. Everyone squares off on the floor as we go to commercial.
