- Tonight's WWE RAW opens up with a Memorial Day video package.
- We're live from the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Michael Cole welcomes us to RAW before leading us to a video package looking at what happened with Triple H and Curtis Axel last week. We also get a look at John Cena returning to confront Ryback.
- We go to the ring and out comes John Cena to a mixed reaction.
The WWE Champion hits the ring and says it feels like a lot of unrest in the building tonight. A lot of unrest, anxiety and maybe a little anger. Cena talks about Ryback, the WWE Title and the Ambulance Match at Payback. A loud "we want Bret" chant breaks out and Cena acknowledges it. Cena says Ryback never thinks things through and thought too quickly when it comes to the Payback challenge. Cena says he's had a week to think it through. He says Payback should be hell. Cena announces the main event will now be Three Stages of Hell - a Lumberjack Match, a Tables Match and an Ambulance Match. Ryback comes out and is confident about the match change. Ryback says for Cena to get ready to meet Satan.
- Ryback leaves and out comes Paul Heyman while Cena is still in the ring. Heyman tells Cena to say hello to a future WWE Hall of Famer and introduces Curtis Axel.
Heyman says Cena is a fighting champion and issues a challenge - Cena vs. Axel for tonight. Cena says he saw Axel last week and he has guts. Cena warns Axel to stay far away from Heyman because he's no good. Cena fires back and says Heyman has a deal, the match is on. Cena's music hits and he stares Axel down from the ring.
- Still to come, Paul Heyman will be Chris Jericho's special guest on The Highlight Reel. No mention of Axel being in the segment.
- Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez are headed to the ring. Back to commercial.
