- Tonight's WWE RAW opens up with a look at The Shield. We see clips from last week of Ryback powerbombing CM Punk and they discuss his injury plus the changes to TLC. The video switches focus to the storyline with AJ Lee, John Cena, Dolph Ziggler and Vickie Guerrero.
- We're live from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey as Justin Roberts introduces Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler is in the ring at the top of a ladder. His Money in the Bank briefcase is hanging high. Ziggler says he's right where he belongs - at the top. Ziggler is here to talk about two numbers - 6 and 15. 6 is the number of days until TLC and 15 is the number of days until Christmas. Ziggler says for John Cena, Christmas and TLC are one in the same. Ziggler talks about how Cena has been handed opportunities but failed.
Ziggler talks about having to defend his briefcase at TLC. Ziggler says he will be the coal in Cena's stocking. Ziggler declares that he will beat Cena at TLC. Ziggler says then he will cash in his contract, beat Big Show and go on to be the greatest World Champion of all time. Out comes Sheamus to interrupt. We see ladders set up all on the stage and the ramp as Sheamus makes his way down.
Sheamus mocks Ziggler and says Ziggler is going to have to cash in on him because he will beat Big Show at TLC to win the World Title. Sheamus says for that to happen, Ziggler would have to beat Cena and he doesn't think that will happen. Sheamus thinks it will be Cena vs. Sheamus down the line, for the World Title. Big Show's music hits and out he comes now. Show says both of them are delusional. Show says he would like to come down and beat Sheamus up now but he can't because of the no-contact clause they signed on SmackDown. Show says he will knock out Ziggler too. They keep arguing and Ziggler ends up getting shoved off the ladder by Sheamus.
- Vince McMahon is shown walking backstage as we go to commercial.
- Back from the break and WWE Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston joins commentary as Wade Barrett waits in the ring. Vince McMahon's music hits and out he comes. He hypes tonight's main event - John Cena vs. Big Show and brings out the person who made that match, Vickie Guerrero. Vince wants another main event and says Sheamus should be in it. Vince whispers to her that Dolph Ziggler should be in the match. Vince says what about a third main event... something really big, monumental. Vickie proposes AJ Lee wrestle a handicap match and the crowd boos. Vince comes up with Vickie vs. AJ. Vince calls out R-Truth for the next match.
R-Truth vs. Wade Barrett
Kofi is on commentary as is WWE United States Champion Antonio Cesaro.
They go at it and Barrett sends Truth to the floor early on. Barrett comes out and has words with Kofi. Barrett throws Truth into the apron and then in the ring for a 2 count. Barrett drops a knee and kicks Truth in the face for another pin attempt. Truth tries to make a comeback but Barrett kicks him in the gut. Truth counters and rolls Barrett up for the win out of nowhere.
