and AJ Lee get out. AJ looks nervous and Vince looks pissed off. They're out next ...
- Back in the ring with Mr. McMahon and Raw GM AJ. Vince talks about part of the meeting involving AJ's tenure as Raw GM. AJ herself takes the mike. Amongst accusations of fraternizing with a wrestler on the roster, AJ is hereby resigning as the general manager. AJ admits she could have been fired for the people she attacked or the decisions she made, but denies the allegations. She also admits some people find her to be a little unstable, but who doesn't like crazy chicks? The crowd agrees SO much. AJ doesn't want to give this up. She grew up with nothing, grew up in cars and motels, and went from being homeless to being the boss. She felt like she'd always be the poor little girl, but she felt like people accepted her here and thanks the people and Vince for giving her the opportunity to do what she wanted to do.
- Paul Heyman comes out and acts likes he was unaware of AJ's life story. He mockingly praises her rise above a lack of intelligence and stature from a Jersey Girl. He understands the Raw GM position needs to be filled immediately, and recommends himself, aware of his past and current transgressions with Vince and the WWE, but offers the ruthless aggression Vince looks for. Vince tells him no, and says there is a new Managing Supervisior, but not a GM or interim GM, Vickie Guerrero. Vickie thanks the Board of Directors for giving her this opportunity. Heyman interrupts and tries to butter up Vickie into canceling the match between Ryback and Punk. Vickie denies him and makes a Champion vs. Champion match with Punk versus Sheamus! To assure the match happens, she makes it the biggest Lumberjack match in Raw's history! Heyman leaves in a huff. Vickie mocks AJ, putting her down for her lack of immaturity and grace. She even goes into the allegations, saying AJ not only fraternized, she had an affair with a WWE superstar. Lucky son of a gun, whoever that is. Vickie tells her to pack up her things and leave, but AJ turns right back around and goes postal on Vickie, ripping and tearing at her as Vickie clambers out of the ring and up the ramp. CATFIGHT!
Ryback v. The Miz
The "Punk-eating carnivore." I like the sound of that. Miz looks he's facing a shooting gallery, and I don't blame him in the least.
Miz talks with the ref and tries to get out of it, but Ryback biels him in the hard way. Miz tries to fight from the corner, but Ryback tosses him to the outside. Ryback follows Miz out, then back in. Miz with some shots, but Ryback boots him down, drops him by the throat a couple of times, and winds up for the Meathook. Ryback misses, but Miz just bounces off Ryback like a brick wall. Miz tries for a top-rope sledge, but just gets slammed hard with a spinebuster. Meathook connects, and the Shellshock "FINISHES IT!"
Winner: Ryback (There was never a doubt here, and Miz was fed for the purpose of Ryback going over a recent former WWE Champion.)

- Eve backstage on the phone, as Kaitlyn approaches and confront her about the assault a few weeks earlier. Eve again denies any involvement, but Kaitlyn show the picture of Eve's iPad with an email that Eve apparently did not want people to see. Kaitlyn tells her to drop the nice act as Eve's always been a conniving witch. Eve slaps Kaitlyn, and the two scuffle! CATFIIIIGGGGGHT! Layla gets involved, and the refs have to pull the three apart.
- Josh Matthews backstage with Sheamus and his "Brawlin' Buddy." They discuss the chaos of the Lumberjack match Sheamus is in with Punk, as well as the chaos of facing Big Show at HITC. Speak of the devil, Show comes in and Sheamus sticks the doll in his face, only for Show to punch it out of sight. Show simply tells Sheamus that he better get serious real quick this Sunday.
- Daniel Bryan to the ring and tears down a "Goat Face" sign as he's in action NEXT!

Back from commercial as Bryan fights out of a headlock by Ziggler, springboards out of the corner, hits a clothesline, then a VICIOUS corner dropkick for two. Bryan goes for a buzzsaw kick, Dolph counters, but Bryan counters into the No! Lock. Dolph slips out, Bryan goes for a spear, but Dolph PLANTS him with a DDT for a close two count. Dolph goes for a corner splash, but misses and hits the corner post HARD. Bryan with a nice suicide dive. Bryan up on the top turnbuckle, but Dolph with a TOP ROPE X-FACTOR! 1! 2! Thr...KICKOUT!
