1. WWE Hall of Famers Jerry "The King" Lawler came out for commentary like the good ol' days. Unfortunately, Michael Cole follows.
2. John Morrison def. R-Truth to take his spot in the RAW Extreme Rules PPV main event. R-Truth put up his spot before the match when Morrison challenged him. Post-match, R-Truth pretty much turned heel by attacking Morrison. Why the sudden main event change?
Either way, R-Truth finally has a new dimension of his character after destroying Morrison, taking a fan's cigarette, smoking it, and putting it out on his former tag team partner. R-Truth as a heel? Now I'm intrigued. What's UP?!
3. Dolph Ziggler (w/ Vickie "Excuse Me" Guerrero) def. Evan Bourne.
4. WWE Champion The Miz revealed that the triple threat match consisting of him, Morrison, and John Cena will now take place in a steel cage at Extreme Rules. The Anonymous RAW GM books Miz and Alex Riley vs. John Cena and Sin Cara.
5. John Cena and Sin Cara def. WWE Champion The Miz and Alex Riley. Fun match but could have been Botchamania-worthy. Does Riley ever win?
6. Eve Torres def. Nikki Bella to earn the right to rematch for the Divas Title with Brie Bella.
7. According to fans by me, Edge is advertised for the Smackdown taping. Isn't he retired?
8. Michael Cole knights himself as "King Cole." Jack Swagge ambushes Lawler and JR, forcing them to kiss Cole's feet. This segment went extremely long....
9. WWE U.S. Champion Sheamus def. Santino Marella. So much for APPLE!
10. Randy Orton def. CM Punk w/ Nexus barred from ringside. Where does Nexus go from here?
