WWE will also be taping Friday Night Smackdown tonight, due to the wildfires that led to Tuesday's show cancellation. WWE has donated $10,000 to the Red Cross
Raw begins with a recap of the AJ Lee, Daniel Bryan, CM Punk actions from last week.
AJ, whose gimmick is all too familiar with me, comes out to start the show. She mentions that her actions can greatly affect the WWE, it's overwhelming and greatly emotional for her. She welcomes WWE Champion CM Punk. Punk comes out a little bit mad, but smiles it off upon entering the squared circle. AJ says that Punk showed his true feelings for her when he called her mentally unstable, to which she says she is not crazy and she is all there mentally. The crowd breaks "AJ's crazy" chants. She begins to cry for no one as ever cared about her, nor shown the passion and concern that Punk exhibited.
She knew what she had to do from the moment she kissed Punk. She then says Punk turns her on, to which CM shows some discomfort. She says thats he knows what she has to do...then proceeds to get on a knee. #awkward This crazy chick then proposes to Punk, the crowd POPS, great reaction from the crowd. Punk doesn't even look like he's considering it...then NO! NO! NO! NO! is heard as my boy, the number one contender for the WWE Championship Daniel Bryan comes out saying that Punk doesn't really love her he's just playing her because of her role for the WWE Title match at Money in the Bank. Bryan says even though he's hurt AJ in the past. He still loves her.
Punk retorts by saying Bryan doesn't know anything about him. Bryan calls him out and tells Punk to say I do! (was hoping for a YES!) Bryan once again reminds her that Punk only sees her as a Special Guest Referee, where Bryan sees her as a special person. Then Bryan proposes to AJ! Punk says where's the ring big money? Punk says AJ we can talk about this in the back...Bryan says you won't be talking t my future fiancee that way!! Then THE RETURN OF THE ANONYMOUS RAW GENERAL MANAGER!! Bittersweet moment here.
Crowd gives a great reaction to this, Cole does his shtick, says the Anonymous Raw GM is back for tonight and books AJ/Punk and Bryan/Eve Torres in mixed tag match. AJ says everything happens for a reason and tonight she will walk out with her future husband.
CENA/KANE vs JeriShow for tonight's main event.
1. World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus vs. Jack Swagger in a non-title match.
Total squash. Sheamus wins quickly with a Brogue Kick.
Del Rio on the titantron reminds Sheamus that he is not Swagger and that last week he left Sheamus like a dog or something. Hypes up their match for Money in the Bank. Brogue Kick to Swagger out of frustration.
Backstage segment with Santino Marella (still United States Champion) and this week's Smackdown GM Zack Ryder.
Santino says he's going to find the Anonymous GM who is some where in this building.
