- We see Santino Marella backstage talking to his Cobra about how nobody showed up to his summer party. Adam Rose appears and pours some Twisted Tea in Santino's cup. The Rosebuds appear and now Santino has a party.
- We come back and Cole appears to be fine but he's selling. He says he's never seen Cesaro like that. We see Hulk Hogan's congratulatory tweet to John Cena. Still to come, Cena and Reigns vs. Orton and Kane. We go to commercial.
- Back from the break and Vince McMahon's music hits to a big pop from WWE's home state crowd. Instead, Damien Sandow comes out and he's dressed as Vince McMahon. Sandow welcomes us to RAW like Vince would. Sandow does a great promo and says he's built a sports entertainment because he sees talents like Hulk Hogan, Triple H, Steve Austin and a man who is the most talented to ever step foot in the ring, a man who everyone is too ignorant to appreciate, Damien Sandow. He enters himself into the Battleground Battle Royal. If anyone has a problem with that, they're fired. Stephanie appears on the big screen and asks Sandow who the hell he thinks he is. She's upset and goes off on Sandow. She says Vince built this business by toppling giants so tonight, Sandow will have the same opportunity. His match is now and it's against another battle royal participant.
The Great Khali vs. Damien "McMahondow" Sandow
The Great Khali makes his return to WWE TV. He nails one single blow to the head and covers Sandow for the win.
Winner: The Great Khali
- We see the door of the limousine open up out back before going to commercial.
- We come back and Justin Roberts introduces the returning former WWE Champion and out comes... The Miz. He takes the mic and says he's back, asking if fans missed him. The reaction is mixed. He says he's the multi-talented Superstar that's been teased. He's been in Hollywood shooting The Marine 4 and was tempted to stay in Hollywood. He says producers and agents were calling him with lots of offers. He says they told him he was better than WWE and could be Hollywood's biggest star. He says he's back because of the fans. Because the WWE Universe doesn't see him as an A-list talent. He says fans see him as a fluke and take him for granted. Miz says they're all wrong and goes on bragging. He says he won't leave WWE until he's once again main eventing WrestleMania and gets the respect he deserves. He's not leaving until fans are on their knees begging him not to go. The pyro goes off and out comes Chris Jericho to a huge pop.
The music stops and a big chant for Jericho breaks out. Miz asks if Jericho has something to say and disses his last return. The Miz says he's important, he's an actor, he's a box office draw, he's a... Jericho lays him out with a Codebreaker. Fans chant for Jericho again. Jericho takes the mic and says damn that felt good. He's been waiting a long time to say these words. RAW Is... the lights go out and The Wyatt Family graphic appears. The lights come back on and Jericho is surrounded in the ring. Bray attacks first and they beat him down. Bray nails Sister Abigail and The Wyatt Family poses over Jericho as fans boo.
- Back from the break and we get a replay of what just happened to Jericho.
Fandango vs. Dolph Ziggler
Fandango and Layla dance their way out. Dolph Ziggler is out next to a big pop.
Ziggler strikes first with a dropkick. Cole reveals that on the WWE App, Summer Rae extended a truce to Layla and she accepted it. Back and forth in the ring now. Fandango slams Ziggler face first and covers for a 2 count. Fandango kisses Layla and it costs him as Ziggler makes a comeback. Fans chant for Ziggler as he mounts Fandango with right hands in the corner. Ziggler nails a neckbreaker and drops a big elbow. Summer Rae comes in the ring out of nowhere and flirts with Ziggler. She grabs him and kisses him as fans cheer and Fandango looks on upset. Ziggler grabs Summer and kisses her now. Fandango asks Summer what's going on and she leaves. Ziggler nails a Zig Zag from behind for the win.
