Pretty short, and the flow was slightly altered with the backstage antics. Although, I like that there may very well be a build here...
Michael Cole is in the middle of the ring and welcomes John Cena to the show, LIVE via Satellite. He wants to say Thank you for all the concerns from all the fan. Cole wants to first ask for an update about his arm. Cena says that there's no permanent damage, but he does have to get his elbow drained twice a day. A group of doctor's have told him not to compete for the next few months. He recommended, however, that they have no idea who they are dealing with. There is nothing keeping him outside of the ring. Cole wants to know if Cena is surprised that there was no disciplinary action against Ace by the board. Cena said that they contacted him, and he told them not to fire him until after Over the Limit. Cole claims that he's been doing some research and has been very impressed with Ace's past and what he's accomplished in his career. So impressed that Cena may very well be scared...Cena is frightened...that Ace is going to hurt himself. Cena will take full advantage of his position, one that every WWE Superstar wishes he had. In 13 days, he will kick John Laurinaitis's ass.

Beth Pheonix is on commentary and doesn't want to talk about her ankle, so don't ask. We get a little promo of Layla talking right after her win, and she says that she missed me. We also learn that at Over the Limit, Beth gets her rematch
