In-Ring Segment: Cyndi Lauper, Wendi Richter, Layla, Heath Slater & Roddy Piper
We return from commercial and out comes Cyndi Lauper with Wendi Richter, as introduced by Divas Champion Layla, who is already in the ring. Lauper and Richter talk about the 80s a bit but are interupted by Heath Slater. Slater tells them to leave his ring so he can debut his new hit single. Slater tries singing his song but is cut off. Roddy Piper's music hits out of nowhere and out comes the WWE Hall Of Famer. Piper kisses all the ladies on the hand before telling "Mrs. Slater" to take a hike. Piper says the rock-and-wrestling connection made WWE what it is today, and that was led by himself and Lauper. Piper then gets a gold record from ringside. He mentions being in a bad mood years ago and smashing a gold record over Captain Lou Albano's head. He gives Lauper the gold record. Slater again tries singing his new hit single but Piper thumbs him in the eyes. Lauper than blasts Slater with the gold record over his head, smashing it in the process. That's about it. That might have been the worst Raw segment this year. My god am I glad that's over. Even with Piper, it was hard to stomach.
Prime Time Players vs. Primo & Epico
We return from commercial and Primo, Epico and Rosa Mendes are in the ring. Out comes AW. He introduces himself and then brings out the "future tag-champions" – The Prime Time Players, Titus O'Neil and Darren Young. O'Neil and Young make their way to the ring and double-team Epico early on. Primo eventually tags in and gets in a little offense before the PTP get the upper hand again. As Primo and Epico finally get control of the offense, the PTP decide they're already number one contender's and they leave with AW.
