-Vickie talking with Tamina (new hairstyle as well), as AJ comes back in. Vickie jokes if she'll try to deny kissing Cena in the ring. AJ ignores that (at Tamina's hand's behest) and explains that John is hurt and wonders if Vickie will do anything about. Vickie says she doesn't care, and AJ says if Vickie won't do something about it, she will. *sigh* At least it looks like we're heading towards Cena versus Ziggler through all of this.
-We hear more about Heyman going nuts for Punk's celebration, Ryback's ultimatum from Vickie, and Heyman's invitation to Ryback. We suddenly go to the back with Layla and AJ, who's apparently intent on going into the men's locker room, likely to confront Ziggler. Layla's unsure, but AJ tells her to go as she enters. The other men clear as she marches right up to Ziggler, asking who the hell he is to get involved. Dolph goes off on AJ, telling her she's absolutely pathetic, having come in with nothing, latching on to anyone who will pay her attention, and then lose a part of herself when they become disappointed in her. He's seen a million girls like her, and sits back down in digust. AJ goes BATSHIT cazy, assaulting Dolph. Cena pulls her off, only to get blindsided by Dolph. Cena fights back, but Dolph kicks him in the knee and barrels Cena through some stall doors. He continues to attack Cena as officials pull him off and call a doctor for Cena. Whoa.
-Josh Matthews with the update on Cena, and speculation dictates that he likely exacerbated the earlier diagnose of a partial meniscus tear.

-Recap of the AJ-Cena-Vickie-Ziggler debacle, going from the ring to Vickie's office to the men's locker room.
-Heyman in a Punk-decorated ring, with posters of Punk and a list of the longest WWE Title reigns. He doesn't feel should be booed, and wonders why the crowd is upset. He wonders if the crowd's upset at Ryback's and Cena's failure to win, or that whenever Punk and Heyman try to bring attitude and extreme that fans want, they can't handle it. Heyman says this is a celebration of 365 glorious days of the reigning WWE Champion C...M...PUNK! Punk out, as he takes it all in, mockingly bowing to the fans. He spurs the crowd on. Triple H, HBK, Bret Hart, The Undertaker, and the Rock couldn't do it...hold the WWE Championship for 365 days, a full calendar year. Video highlight of Punk's reign, starting from Day 1 last year, through Cena, Jericho, Bryan, Kane, and to a lesser extent, Ryback. Very nice, and surprisingly well-balanced for a heel. It's about looking to the future and knowing his spot for Punk, who feels he should be at the top. He marks the date that he will surpass Bruno Sammartino as the longest reigning champion PERIOD. Heyman gushes how no one on the list can beat CM Punk, and says how the Rock will fall just like the rest. He feels beating Ryback and... (Continues on next page)
