Sandow asks a question about an obscure English poet, and the fan has no idea. Sandow dismisses him with the parting quote, "Ignorance is curable, but stupid is forever."

-Mr. McMahon is WALKING to the ring, and asks a stagehand to have Ms. Guerrero in the ring for a little conversation...NEXT!
-Another recap of Miz challenging Punk to take a lie detector test to prove his innocence concerning Brad Maddox and the Shield.
-Vickie Guerrero is introduced and doesn't look pleased at the prospect of talking with Mr. McMahon. Vickie introduces Vince by his full name for some brownie points, and even asks people to clap for him. She butters him up with some compliments. She makes Dolph versus Cena official for TLC, and says it will be epic. Vince asks for something more, and Vickie makes it No-DQ.

He then mentions the lie detector test coming up, and says that there should be a consequence if Punk is found to be a liar. He "convinces" Vickie that Heyman wouldn't let Punk get into trouble, and Vickie "announces" at Vince's coaxing that if Punk is found to be lying, Heyman will, next week on Raw, face...RYBACK!
