Michael Cole runs out to the ring and says this is a very special RAW, because Jim Ross is finally here in Boston to take the Michael Cole challenge. Cole makes fun of JR's weight before introducing him, and brings him out and says if JR passes the three challenges he will quit. He takes a sheet off of a table and says the first challenge is an arm wrestling contest, and asks for a referee so JR won't cheat. Cole takes his time showboating then stretches before powdering his hands up, but JR instantly beats him when they finally lock up. Cole complains and says the ref started too early, then says he was joking because he gave up due to JR's bad breath.
Cole says they will move on to the next challenge, and says he is so confident he will win that he will let the audience vote on it, because they will have a dance contest. He dances around with a scarf to some house music and tells JR to quit, then JR asks the fans to stand up and clap and he starts dancing to some rap music. The fans go crazy and Cole asks for them to vote, and they boo him and pop for JR, and Cole says it comes down to the final contest. Cole says JR is going to choke harder than the Red Sox, and Cole reveals a scale and says this one is called "who weighs less." He volunteers to go first and weighs in, then asks the crowd if they believe in miracles because JR is next.
JR steps on the scale and weighs more and Cole says he is sticking around, then flips out when he gets cut off by CM Punk and screams that they are ruining his moment. Punk comes to the ring and says his time is up because they all knew he wouldn't give a fair chance and this has been a colossal waste of time. He says they found out JR is a better dancer, but they all know he is a better announcer so Cole is wasting everyone's time just like Alberto Del Rio does. Punk says he will do whatever it takes to make the show fun again, and he will do anything from announcing to ring crew, but right now he is going to start by taking the spotlight away from Michael Cole.
