Here’s RAW in case you missed it:
From The Legendary Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, Virginia:
Hosted by John “Bradshaw” Layfield (JBL), Michael Cole and WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler.
1. THE OPENING BOUT: Triple H (Hunter Hearst Helmsley) vs. Curtis Axel with Paul Heyman.
THE WINNER VIA BOTH DISQUALIFICATION AND FORFEIT: CURTIS AXEL.
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon ordered the forfeit out of concern for Triple H’s health and well-being, much to Hunter’s demand for a 60-Minute Iron Man Match. Hunter’s wife Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley would soon be roped into this, again.
2. A NON-TITLE MATCH: Kane vs. WWE United States Champion Dean Ambrose.
THE WINNER VIA DISQUALIFICATION: KANE!!!
The disqualification happened when WWE Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns attacked Kane from behind, and Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan ran out to make the save.
Fans and viewers were asked to vote for Daniel Bryan’s opponent on the WWE App, and the choices were Seth Rollins or Roman Reigns. The fans chose Seth Rollins. Randy Orton will face Roman Reigns.
3. The Miz vs. Cody Rhodes.
THE SPECIAL GUEST COMMENTATOR FOR THIS MATCH: WWE Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett.
THE WINNER VIA SUBMISSION: THE MIZ!!!
After the match, Paul Heyman, by order of RAW Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero, announced that this Sunday at Payback, Miz and Wade’s Intercontinental title fight will be a Triple Threat Match, and Curtis Axel will be their opponent. The reason for this is because Fandango suffered a concussion last week on SmackDown!. WWE.com reported that he had passed his impact test, but will have to undergo further testing for clearance.
Chris Jericho spoke about his opponent CM Punk. Jericho labeled the match “Punk vs. Jericho 3”, and stated that Punk won’t be the same afterwards. After that, the returning WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler appeared alongside Big E Langston and A.J. Lee as he vowed that he will defeat Alberto del Rio on Sunday. Jericho had enough, and challenged him to a match. Ziggler volunteered Langston instead.

WWE Divas Champion Kaitlyn, after receiving a lot of messages from her secret admirer, finally found out who he was: Big E Langston. Langston revealed his feelings and was about to kiss her, but dropped her on the canvas. It was revealed to be a setup courtesy of A.J. Lee. A.J. labeled Kaitlyn trash, and stated that no one cares about her. She vowed that this Sunday, the Divas title will be hers, labeled her a “Pathetic, useless cow”, until Kaitlyn slapped and assaulted her!!!
8. Damien Sandow vs. R-Truth.
THE WINNER: DAMIEN SANDOW…………………YOU’RE WELCOME.
The lumberjacks for Sunday’s Three Stages of Hell Match surrounded the ring as WWE Champion John Cena and RyBack would have a final face to face before Payback. RyBack arrived in an ambulance (again), but stood under the Titantron as he vowed that this Sunday he will defeat Cena and win the title. Cena was ready to fight, but was stopped by some of the lumberjacks. RyBack zoomed into the ring and he and Cena fought as some of the other lumberjacks tried to stop it.
