CM Punk starts tonight's show by coming to the ring and says Dolph Ziggler may claim to have beaten him three times, but John Laurinaitis handed them to him. Punk says John is the special referee at the Royal Rumble, but he is a loser and he has already said this to his face so he knows John won't be impartial. Punk says he may be screwed already, but he also knows it is hard to ref a match with two broken arms, so the ball is in his court. He tells John to come to the ring and show he has the balls to say everything he said last week to his face. Punk says he gave him a chance so now he will go find him in the back, but John Cena comes out to the ring and cuts him off.

Punk says he was looking for a company guy, and he meant the other John, but Cena tells him to shut up because he is out there for business. Cena says he wants John to make things right after screwing Zack Ryder out of his United States title, and he also wants a match against Kane tonight. He says he will still face Kane on Sunday, and he finally wants John to resign as GM of RAW, but Punk asks what good is will do by him saying all of that, eventhough the fans want it. John Laurinaitis makes his way to the ramp and says he is not intimidated by either of them and he will stand by what he said last week. He says he apologized to Zack, but he is here tonight and is medically cleared so he will have a Falls Count Anywhere match with Kane. John tells Cena if he gets involved Zack will never get another rematch, then makes an impromptu tag match for Punk and Cena.

Vickie Guerrero makes her way and introduces new United States Champion Jack Swagger and future WWE Champion Dolph Ziggler, then Dolph tells Punk to forget about John. Dolph says he is the one Punk should worry about, then tells him that he will flat out beat him like the past three weeks. Swagger takes the mic and says Cena is going to pay for what he did last week, and tells him he is dead meat as they make their way down to the ring. (Cont'd…)
