- Back from the break and we see footage from last week of Kaitlyn winning the WWE Divas Title and Eve Torres quitting.
Alicia Fox vs. Kaitlyn
We go to the ring and Alicia Fox is dancing around. Out next comes WWE Divas Champion Kaitlyn for a non-title match.
Alicia strikes first and takes Kaitlyn to the corner. Kaitlyn turns it around and tosses her to the floor. We see Tamina Snuka watching backstage. Kaitlyn with a baseball slide and then a tackle from the apron. Alicia counters and brings it back in the ring. Alicia tosses Kaitlyn around the ring and works her over. Alicia with a leg scissor and a clothesline for 2. Alicia with a headlock now.
Kaitlyn fights out of a hold and ducks a kick in the corner. Alicia gets hung up and turns around to a spear from Kaitlyn for the win.
- Heyman and Punk are backstage walking. Heyman has arranged a luxury skybox for Punk to watch what's happening next. Heyman says he has a personal message for The Rock... he calls it a Paul-bomb and dedicates it to Punk. They head off to the skybox and we go to commercial.
- Back from the break and Heyman says he is also CM Punk's adviser, friend, advocate. Heyman says tonight he will also act as Punk's interpreter after most of what Punk said earlier went over everyone's head. We see Punk watching from a skybox. Heyman assures us that Rock won't leave Royal Rumble as WWE Champion. Heyman says Vince McMahon is a tyrant and desperate for someone to defeat Punk. Heyman goes on and says just like the people, The Rock is stupid. Rock's music hits and out he comes to a big pop.
Rock thanks the San Jose Police Department for his ticket to RAW. Heyman goes to interrupt and Rock tells him to shut up. Rock calls him Twinkie t--s and threatens him, forcing Heyman to get out of the ring. Rock looks up at the skybox where CM Punk is. Rock acknowledges Punk is a badass and says he has earned the right to all himself the best in the world. Rock says that doesn't change the fact that this is Punk's last RAW as WWE Champion. The crowd chants Rock's name. Rock says Punk is obsessed with how Rock entertains the fans. Rock says he will stand before Punk and rip his face off any time. A "boots 2 asses" chant starts up. Rock says just like MLK had a dream, he has one where he will become WWE Champion one more time. Rock promises to beat Punk on Sunday and says when that's done, everyone will yell about how they are free at last. He ends his promo in typical Rock fashion and goes to the corner to celebrate.
The lights go out and when they come back on, The Shield is beating Rock down in the corner. Rock fights back but they beat him down again. They hit the triple powerbomb on The Rock and stand over him together. The Shield exits the ring, leaving Rock laid out. Punk takes the mic and says at the top of the mountain, there's only room for one man. Rock tries to get to his feet as Punk speaks. Punk says when Rock wakes up from that dream, he will realize The Great One wasn't great enough to beat the best in the world. Punk holds up the WWE Title as Rock bleeds from his mouth. We go to commercial.
