Here’s RAW in case you missed it:
From The Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana:
Hosted by Michael Cole and WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler.
1. THE OPENING BOUT: Titus O’Neil with Darren Young vs. RyBack.
THE WINNER: RYBACK!!!!!!!!!!!
POST-MATCH INTERVIEW: RyBack demanded that WWE Champion CM Punk, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns face him in the ring. RAW Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero sent security into the ring, and one of the guards got in RyBack’s face, and got tossed out of the ring! Vickie arrived, and told RyBack that she understood his anger, and Ryback demanded a match at the Tables, Ladders, and Chairs (TLC) pay-per-view next month. Vickie granted his wish, and made it a Tables, Ladders and Chairs (TLC) Match for the WWE Championship! She then ordered RyBack out of the ring, and the remaining security guards leapt out of the ring!
2. Alberto del Rio with Ricardo Rodriguez vs. The Great Khali with Hornswoggle.
THE WINNER VIA SUBMISSION: ALBERTO DEL RIO.
Michael Cole interviewed the three NXT wrestlers named Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns, and asked if they were working for the champion CM Punk. Seth Rollins stated that he, Ambrose and Reigns are not aligned with CM Punk, and that they are on their own. Rollins stated that the shield from injustice, while Ambrose stated that they are not a biker gang, not mercenaries, not the Nexus, and not the New World Order (NWO). As Michael Cole continued, Roman Reigns halted him, and ended the interview by walking out, while Rollins and Ambrose followed.
Before the start of the Divas match, a promo for the new wrestler named Fandango (I thought he was named Fandangoo) aired. Looks Like WWE is finally firing a shot a ABC-TV’s Dancing With The Stars.
3. A DIVAS MATCH: Alicia Fox vs. The Returning Tamina Snuka.
THE WINNER: THE RETURNING TAMINA SNUKA!!!!!!!!
After the match, Michael Cole announced that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon traveled with R-Truth, The Miz, WWE Divas Champion Eve Torres and Layla to the Persian Gulf to visit United States Armed Forces officers who are stationed there.
John Cena talked about how many memories that he created with WWE since 2002. He also mentioned the question that people are asking him: “Is A.J. a good kisser?”. While he continued to talk, Vickie interrupted him, and tried to give him and A.J. Lee matching bathrobes as a gift. She also mentioned how A.J. cost Daniel Bryan the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, and how she did so much stuff throughout this year. A.J. Lee arrived, and admitted that she had made a lot of mistakes when it came to men, but moved on. She stated that since she was replaced as RAW General Manager, she can do whatever she wants, and date whoever she wants. She felt up Cena, and tried to kiss him when Vickie interrupted her, and A.J. labeled her a dog! Dolph Ziggler arrived, and stated that he knows what’s bothering Cena. Ziggler stated that Cena is jealous that A.J. probably thinks about Ziggler more than Cena. As Cena was about to run out of the ring to attack Ziggler, Vickie stopped him and ordered both men into a match.
NOTE: This segment went into the first six minutes of Hour 2.
The YouTube.com show entitled 4th and Pain presented Washington Redskins Quarterback Robert Griffin III (RGIII) with a WWE Championship belt in honor of his performance against the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day last week.

9. THE MAIN EVENT: WWE Tag Team Champion Kane vs. WWE Champion CM Punk.
THE WINNER: CM PUNK!!!!!!!!!
After the match, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns, now known as The Shield, entered the ring. CM Punk was ready to fight, but The Shield attacked Kane. Daniel Bryan ran out to stop it, but was attacked as well. RyBack ran out and fought them, but they powerbombed him (AGAIN).
Match #’s 5, 6, and 7 are the highlight matches of the night!!!!
ANALYSIS: While the Vickie Guerrero and Dolph Ziggler vs. John Cena and A.J. Lee fiasco is tiring, RGIII being honored, along with Michael Cole’s interview with The Shield, and especially the visit to the troops and the Daniel Bryan-Rey Misterio, Jr. match both made up for it.
