Jerry Lawler is in the ring, and discusses Fandango's early success and then shows footage of Fandango winning at WrestleMania. Fandango and Summer Rae are out first. They even have a dance floor in the ring for them. Chris Jericho and his partner Edyta Sliwinska (she is from Dancing with the Stars and a professional ballroom dancer) now make their way out. Lawler says each team gets 90-seconds for their routine, and once they have completed their dance, the fans will select the winners. Lawler says this is not a popularity contest, and reminds Fandango he lost in a dance contest to Khali a few weeks back. Fandango refutes this, saying the crowd knows nothing about talent. He says these fans will respect his talent. He also says he knows he will defeat Chris Jericho tonight, because he is the better man. Jericho welcomes us to Raw is Jericho, and brings up his musical chairs victory on Raw form the past and the fact that he won the Price is Raw. He knows he will win tonight and then at Extreme Rules, he will create a new dance sensation the "I just kicked your jackass all over the ring." At Extreme Rules he will dance all over Fandango's face, and he will never, EEEEEEEEEEVER be the same, again.
Fandango won the coin toss earlier today, and he and Summer dance. Well, they just pose actually and Fandango cuts the music. He grabs the mic and says that he needs silence to create magic. The music starts again and they dance, but Summer falls down and twists her ankle. Fandango is pissed about this. Edyta checks on her and so does a WWE trainer. Fandango bails on his partner and then rushes back in and lays out Jericho with a boot to the face. Mounted rights by Fandango, and then a boot to the gut sending Jericho to the floor. He slams Jericho to the announce table and then to the steps. Fandango then tosses him to the barricade and then grabs a piece of the dance floor. He charges Jericho and lays him out with it. Fandango then gets in the ring and Summer gets to her feet, because SHE'S A BIG OLD FAKER! They pose in victory.
