- In the back, Brad Maddox wants to shake hands with Vickie. She takes his head off with a slap to the face and walks away.
- The Miz is in the ring for MizTV. He introduces Paul Heyman to the ring. We see footage of Lesnar beating up CM Punk from Monday. Heyman salivates at the footage. Miz says he has nothing to ask Heyman and tells him to say whatever he wants. Miz holds the mic for him and looks away. Heyman gets cut off by a huge 'CM Punk' chant. Heyman says he still has love in his heart for Punk. He advises that Punk "stay down." He tells Punk to leave WWE and lick his wounds. Heyman puts Lesnar over as a beast and warns Punk to not provoke him.
Miz says he is revolted by Heyman. He drops the mic and simply walks away. Heyman picks up the mic and brings out Curtis Axel who meets Miz on the ramp. They pass with no incident. Chris Jericho enters after a break.
