Vickie, with a nasty sneer on her face is heading to the ring with even more evidence of the AJ scandal.
In Ring Segment
Vickie is in the ring with Ziggler. Ziggler says that a scandal is an action or event that is legally or morally wrong that causes public outrage. He’s not out there to hide behind his former manager Vickie. He’s out there for one reason, the truth. The truth cannot be denied. They then show all the photos and video tapes they previously showed.
Vickie said last week – then the heat got so much louder. Vickie says that AJ said if she was in the ring with Vickie that if she was in the ring with Vickie she will give Vickie the beating of her life. She’s the managing supervisor and will not be threatened by a vengeful little girl. She could have suspended AJ, but didn’t. Now AJ needs to come out and explain herself. Vickie told AJ to come out.
AJ out in gray jeans and a tiny black top showing much waist. AJ asked what Vickie wanted. She caused AJ her job, so…
Vickie says that AJ caused her own job. Vickie told AJ to admit she had an affair with Cena. “Shut up Vickie!” chants.
AJ says she won’t lie. She won’t like because her name is Vickie Guerrero.
Vickie says she’s AJ’s boss. She tells AJ to be careful what she says, but none of it will matter when she discloses this evidence. She needs to admit the affair with Cena and it will all be taken care of. Vickie gets screechy telling AJ to admit it.
Finally AJ cracks and says okay, she admits it. She admits the truth. Cena and AJ, are just friends. AJ cocks her head and gives Vickie that smile. Nothing inappropriate has happened between them. This isn’t about the truth, it’s that VKM appointed AJ the RAW GM, not Vickie. That she’s physically embarrassed Vickie in the ring. Twice. She can’t stand the fact that if AJ wanted to, she could do it again. Vickie is just throwing her weight around… AJ looks at Vickie’s bum… and says Vickie’s weight is pretty considerable.
Vickie says she caused a mess for herself. She has been forwarded unsolicited voice mails.
It’s a voice mail of AJ talking to Cena about what happened the night before was a mistake.
AJ admits it’s her voice, but she didn’t leave that voice mail.
The next one is AJ saying they have to stop doing this. She wants to stop, but when she sees him, she looses control.
AJ is confused and wants to know how Vickie did that.
The next one is AJ telling Cena that he drives her crazy. They should be together.
AJ says Vickie hacked into Cena’s phone and pieced those messages together. She starts getting in Vickie’s face, but Ziggler cuts her off and says they can’t deny what happened, now AJ can’t see him. What’s less satisfying? That Cena won’t see her now, or all those nights in his hotel room?
Cena’s music and he comes stomping out. AJ stops him physically, tells her she can handle it, then turns and bitch slaps Ziggler. Cena then punches Ziggler who rolls from the ring. Cena talks to AJ off mic in the ring, both are very unhappy about all of this.
Big Show and Sheamus had a brawl in a pub in the UK. Cole then asks the fans to join them in support of the veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan.
AJ is freaking backstage trying to figure out what that was. Cena wants to make sure she’s alright. They’re making her life miserable over something that never happened, never would happen.
AJ asked about how it never would happen?
He said over something that never happened. Then they turn into embarrassed teens and Cena leaves.
Slam of the Week
Video of Sheamus and Regal getting beaten up in a pub by Big Show.
Regal vs Big Show
Regal is in the ring pissed and pacing. Big Show to the ring. Video of Regal and Sheamus facing Big Show and Barrett last week on Smackdown.
Regal is pissed and goes at Big Show, but a forearm to the back drops Regal, then blows in a corner on Regal. Into another corner and more blows on Regal. Regal keeps coming back at Big Show, and keeps getting punched down. Big Show slams Regal to the mat, but Regal moves out of the way of Big Show’s elbow. Regal comes back with lefts and an upper cut, but then chokeslammed to the mat for three.
Winner – Big Show (1:38)
Regal’s chest looks like raw meat from Big Show’s slaps. Big Show about to leave the ring, but then decides to hit Regal with the WMD, but the cheers go up and Sheamus rushes the ring. Sheamus is all over Big Show, tackles him, then on him with blows. Finally Big Show rolls from the ring and walks away. Regal is still down on the mat.
Kaitlyn vs Layla
Both are in the ring and ready.
Kaitlyn rolled Layla up for two. Layla rolls Kaitlyn up for two. Eve is on announce in a sheer black top and red skirt saying neither of these women deserves a shot at the Divas Title as she’s beaten them both. “We want puppies!” chants. Kaitlyn takes Layla down hard for three.
Winner – Kaitlyn (1:04)
Kaitlyn rolls out and stares at Eve who stands and stares back.
Cole says King will be back, but then goes to video of that night. The match was going, then King dropped. They showed the video of King down, then being taken out. As we hear Cole’s words talking about King, they show video of them shocking King, then performing CPR on him, just beating on his chest to keep his heart going. They should have put a warning before that video, because that shook me. That’s not something I’d want my youngest to see without warning. As much as I adore and respect King, that was really very hard to watch, and not something I want to see again.
In Ring Segment
Cole and JR are in the ring. Cole says nine weeks ago King collapsed at ringside. They all didn’t know if this would ever happen, but here he is. JR announces his colleague and friend, Jerry ‘The King’s Lawler.
King comes out to the ring in one of his normally tacky shirts, crown in hand. The fans go absolutely wild, as they should. King down and into the ring with a close hug for JR, then after a jokingly apprehensive look, King hugs Cole. Cole obviously doesn’t want to let go of King, but finally does. “Jerry!” chants.
King says he has no idea what he should say right now. This is so overwhelming and means so much. He was thinking there was a time he didn’t think he’d step foot in a WWE ring, for it to happen is so much to him. Every holiday season he watches It’s A Wonderful Live. It’s about a guy who didn’t know how much his life meant to all his family and friends. It took a near death experience for him to realize that. He’s lived that movie. He can’t get over how many of his friends and fans are out there and thanks from the bottom of his… heart. It’s great to be back…
Punk’s music, and out he comes with Heyman. Cole is going off about Punk coming out and ruining this moment for King. The ultimate in disrespect! Huge heat for Punk when his music goes off. King is standing at announce staring. Punk says he’s glad King left the ring when he did, because if he didn’t, he’d beat King to death. Again.
Right, boo Punk for all he does. But never anything against King. He died and came back. He’s a zombie! Punk loves zombies! But King’s behavior is disrespectful. An old man putting on his tights and getting in the ring with the WWE Champ is in bad taste. What does he think would happen? Of course he had a heart attack! Shame on the fans for the hate mail blaming Punk for it all. It’s not his fault. The blame falls squarely on King’s shoulder. People point at Punk and say he’s a bad person. Shame on King for this heart attack stunt. Backstage they talk about the number of minutes King was dead. But the number that means something, 358. He’s tied Big Daddy Cool Diesel for the 9th longest reigning Champ. 365, one week and he will beat Ryback and Cena, like he has before, and it’s one year. Honestly, he’s glad King’s back and has a front row seat to watch him do what he does. Just try not to croak before the PPV.
King says he’ll try not to, but the way he sees it, the only thing on life support is Punk’s Title run.
Punk says that if King feels that way about it… Heyman starts coughing and Punk rushes to him. Heyman on the mat and Punk is tending to him. Heyman clings to his chest as Punk throws the X. Punk beats on Heyman’s chest, then suddenly Heyman is fine. Heyman sits up and points at King laughing. Punk says that Heyman almost gave him a heart attack.
Car crash and out comes Foley. Cole is apologizing to King and everyone watching for that disgraceful display.
Foley says it doesn’t surprise him that someone who demands respect like Punk can’t give it to a man who commands respect like King. Punk goes off about Heyman’s heart attack. Punk says that they have nothing going on now that he’s not the Captain of his team. Foley needs to worry about the last member of his team. Punk stumbles and starts saying SummerSlam, but fixes it to Survivor Series.
Foley says the WWE ‘Universe’ will pick the last member of his team. Punk tells him to never worry about what the fans want or thing. Punk goes on a worthless rant, but Punk goes screaming at Punk about King, he was dead. DEAD! He’s back with us, and thanks to the thoughts and prayers of the WWE ‘Universe’. When he found out that while he was overseas fulfilling his time with the troops, that his team was changed. He’s learned that Punk doesn’t care anything about anything but himself, but now he’s in a position where Cena and Ryback will strip Punk of his Title.
Punk says there’s nothing Foley can teach him because Punk isn’t going to fly off his roof. None of this involves Foley, why is he even out there. Foley says that it does because he learned earlier that tonight, this of finger pointing and roof jumping, will be the Special Guest Enforcer for Punk’s match tonight. Have a nice day!
Maddox is stretching and getting ready for his match.
Punk going off about the problems they have and Heyman needs to fix it. Heyman needs to fix all their problems. Punk stomps off and Heyman is left looking after him.

Maddox is still getting ready and Heyman comes up to him. Heyman asks one guy to shut off his camera, but not the one who’s shot we’re actually watching from, then tells Maddox that they need to take a walk. With an arm around Maddox, Heyman leads him away.
Fandango, with only one ‘O’ this week. This time we see his face and he’s dancing.
Miz is on his cell phone talking about being on the poster, so he will be on the PPV. Ziggler comes in and says that Miz is going to come begging to be on his team. Ziggler talks up what he did tonight in the ring. Miz says he didn’t see all that, but he saw that Ziggler was slapped by a girl. Foley comes in and Ziggler goes off about letting the ‘Universe’ pick his team member. Ziggler leaves and Foley says, “Amy Shumer says hello!” (?)
Miz then asks about being put on Foley’s ballot tonight. Miz explained why he’d love to beat Team Ziggler, so Foley gives him a shot on the ballot. Foley doesn’t think he has a chance, but he’s on.
