Slam of the Week -
Punk's party last week, then Ryback came out, but Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns came out and put Ryback through announce – again.
King says the way those guys show up, it's hard not to think they're with Punk.
Cole says he's known them for a while now, worked with them in developmental. Many people have said... Who? Just ask. Cole asks if they're working for Punk.
Ambrose and Rollins both say that everyone around here has to answer to someone, and everyone answers to the WWE 'Universe'. That's a popularity contest. They saw things going wrong, and righted it. It's coincidence that it's helped Punk. It's about righting wrong. Punk had to face two guys. It could have been anyone, but 365 is a milestone.
Cole asks Reigns if he has something to say. He says when he has something to say, he'll say it.
They're about principles, it's all about honor. They're a shield from injustice.
Reigns says he has something to say, we've said enough, this interview is over. They, all three, leave.
Cole says he believes that they're making a name for themselves,nothing to do with Punk. King coughs that it's BS.

In Ring Segment
Cena out to the ring. Video of AJ and Cena kissing, then on to the altercation in the mens locker room, and the STF on Ziggler on the stage at Smackdown. Cena says after seeing that Ziggler had what's coming to him. But Cena's been in the WWE for ten years. He's had WrestleMania moments with HBK, Trip and Rock, but never been interrogated about AJ being that good of a kisser. He's a gentleman who doesn't kiss and tell, but he'll tell us...
EXCUSE ME! EXCUSE ME! EXCUSE ME! She loves to say I told you so! Cena, after his display of disgusting lust, that proves they've been having an affair. It's put her in a giving mood, and she has a gift her him and AJ. He hopes she's retiring... She got them matching robes. He won't touch it, doesn't know where it's been. She can't wait to watch them squirm, then implode. This is psychotic AJ Lee! AJ cost Bryan the WHC at WrestleMania! Proposed to Punk without ever going on a date with him. Then Kane even confirmed that AJ is unstable.
AJ's music and she comes out in snug jeans and a white tank tied in the back. Vickie asks if she's out to deny she was a panting love sick puppy every time any guy looked at her. AJ says in the past she's had issues with men, but she's working to be a better person. Does Vickie know what a better person is? Didn't think so! But this was all about her having improper relations while she was GM. Thanks Vickie, she's not GM, so she can do anything she wants. She can do this – touch Cena's ear. Or this – grabs Cena's ass. He drops his mic. Or this – she leans for a kiss, but Vickie tells her to stop. AJ says being GM, Vickie can't, and being the boss is the only way she can land a man. She's not that lovesick puppy she was, and there's only one lovesick dog in the ring right now!
Ziggler comes out and says that this episode of Springer is entertaining, but they're all losing sight of the real story – Cena can't deal that Ziggler tackled him through a bathroom wall, and he took it. Then, unprovoked, Cena cheap shotted him on Smackdown. Why would Cena resort to such cowardly tactics. He was wracking his brain, but he knows what's eating Cena up inside. When he kissed AJ, she jumped on him and shoved her tongue down his throat, he knew AJ was thinking about Ziggler the entire time.
Cena says he knows the sun will rise, they're on RAW, and they're in Lafayette, Louisiana, and he's going to shove this mic down...
Vickie says they're not doing this on stage, or in the bathroom, in this ring, they will face off, tonight!
