- The opener runs and we go right to Teddy Long in the ring. He says Mr. McMahon will be here tonight and rumor has it, he will be giving Teddy a job evaluation. He polls the crowd if he should be the permanent GM. The crowd cheers for him that he has been doing a good job. Then Booker T's music hits and he comes to the ring. Booker thanks Teddy for filling in for him during his absence. Enter Vince McMahon...
Vince does his signature saunter down the ramp and gets in the ring. He shakes both men's hands. Vince says only one person can be in charge of the show. He asks Teddy what match he would make. Teddy says Curtis Axel vs. Y2J with the Intercontinental Title on the line. Booker T says he would make Alberto Del Rio vs. Randy Orton. The crowd pops. The RAW theme hits and a nervous Brad Maddox comes to the the ring and he wants to have a word with Vince.
Maddox wants to be the GM of SmackDown as well. He says not only was he going to make those matches, but it will be the SmackDown return for Rob Van Dam. The crowd goes nuts. We get a drumroll and Vince announces the permanent GM...Vickie Guerrero. The crowd hates it and chants "No." Vickie comes to the ring and hugs Vince. Booker's face is priceless. Vickie cuts a grating promo and I turned down the volume a little. Vickie gloats as the crowd boos. Cole says, "Wow." Vickie leaves the ring to the show's theme as Booker, Teddy, and Brad stand stunned.
- Back from a break as Jack Swagger awaits Dolph Ziggler in the ring. Zeb Colter and Antonio Cesaro are at ringside. We see footage of AJ Lee going crazy on Ziggler from Monday. On a side note, AJ needs new theme music to match her crazy character. Her music totally took me out of the moment on RAW when it hit after she turned on Ziggler. They should give her theme the Doink treatment.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Jack Swagger
They go back and forth. The action goes to the floor and Cesaro hits Ziggler with an uppercut behind the ref's back but he suspects something when he sees Ziggler on the floor and sends Zeb and Cesaro to the back. AJ and Big E look on in the back. Ziggler hits the Zig Zag for the win.
Winner by pin: Dolph Ziggler
Dolph cuts a post match promo in the ring. He says he dumped his girlfriend last Monday. He pauses and looks troubled and says he is sorry. He then smiles and says he is sorry he didn't do it sooner. In the back AJ goes nuts and throws things. Big E picks her off the floor. I again turned down the volume. AJ cries and screams in Big E's arms. Langston looks into her eyes and goes for a kiss but stops. They stare at each other awkwardly and Langston walks away.
- Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns come to the ring as we go to commercial. After we return, we see footage of Mark Henry getting jumped by the Shield on RAW. The Usos make their entrance and charge the ring. Dean Ambrose shows up to help Reigns and Rollins. Mark Henry's music hits to cheers and he succeeds with The Usos to overtake the Shield as the trio escapes over the security wall.
