The Intercontinental Championship picture goes to a whole new level- as CM Punk teams with Kofi Kingston, and Alex Riley to take on the team of John Cena, Tyson Kidd, and Brodus Clay. Tune into this week's Raw, to see if Riley and Kingston can get along with the villain in CM Punk.
Kaitlyn will take on the returning Eve, in what should be some great Divas action!
We get a quick recap of last week's Raw, as the camera cuts back to the arena. Fireworks go off as the crowd are absolutely hyped. The camera heads over to the announcers table, as Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler talk about Team Hell No facing 3MB. And what this could mean for 3MB. If they are able to get a shock win, they go through to the pool of number 1 contenders for the tag team titles! The camera cuts back to the ring, as the light's go out. Light's go back on, as Undertaker's music hits, as he is standing in the middle of the ring with a mic. He says that last week, he challenged any superstar that was able to step up- and take him on at Wrestlemania. He says that not just any other superstar, but a young superstar. Someone who hasn't had the chance at the top yet, someone who hasn't had their limelight. He says that last week, he was disrespected- by a certain superstar called Chris Jericho. He says that Jericho challenged him to a match, and he told Undetaker to forget about young stars. He says that Jericho is simply a selfish, arrogant brat who doesn't deserve to face Undertaker himself. He says that the reason why he declined Jericho's challenge, was because he has already proven to be a talented superstar, he is an established superstar with all the experience you need. He says that there are plenty of superstars out there, like Tyson Kidd, Kofi Kingston, Cody Rhodes, that haven't had a chance at where they belong. Chris Jericho's music hits as the crowd boo. Jericho comes out, and says that Taker is full of lies. He says that he knows Undertaker is talking trash, because there is only 1 logical reason as to why he won't accept Jericho's challenge....because he's scared. He says that Undertaker has worked so hard, to keep that streak up and going. And he knows that Jericho is the only superstar, that has the power to defeat the streak. Undertaker knows, that Jericho will be the only threat that Taker has. He slides into the ring, and he sticks his hand out. Jericho says that he'd never thought he'd say this to Undertaker- but he needs to step up...and be a man! Taker pushes Jericho, and slides out of the ring as Jericho shouts coward. Taker heads to the back, as we head to a commercial break.
We are back from commercial break, as Eve's music hits! Eve makes her way to the ring. Kaitlyn's music hits, as Kaitlyn makes her way to the ring. The bell rings.
Match 1. Kaitlyn vs Eve
Finish: Great action from the Divas. Eve sets Kaitlyn up for the Heartbreaker, but AJ appears on the ramp. Eve taunts AJ, but AJ skips around the ring to Eve's displeasure! Eve turns around, Kaitlyn hits her with a Spear! She goes for the cover, and beats the Divas Champion!
After the match, Kaitlyn celebrates but Eve slides out of the ring and grabs a mic. She says that AJ can keep trying, and trying to distract Eve- but all her trying isn't going to work! She says that the only reason why AJ doesn't deserve a title shot, is because she doesn't one. Last week, sure- she defeated Kaitlyn. But the only reason why she actually defeated Kaitlyn, was because Kaitlyn's aggression went first class! She says that the reason why Kaitlyn doesn't a title shot, is because she's kicked her ass too many times! She says that if it wasn't for AJ, Kaitlyn wouldn't have defeated her anyway! Kaitlyn goes to counter, but instead- Vickie Guerrero comes out! She says that she's had enough of everybody whining in the Divas Division. She says that she's going to make this simple, and clear. At Wrestlemania, Eve will defend her title once again...against Kaitlyn. The crowd cheer. She says however, this will be Kaitlyn's final chance at the title. If she loses, then she won't get another shot at the title- unless someone else defeats Eve in the near future...which is highly doubtful. AJ asks for a mic, as Vickie goes to head to the back. AJ asks what about her, as Vickie stops. Vickie says that she knew AJ was crazy, but she didn't know she was THAT crazy. She says that AJ isn't getting a title shot, full stop. Shouldn't she be going back to two timing with Big E Langston and Dolph Ziggler? Vickie leaves, but AJ stands on the ramp- breaking down in tears as we head to commercial.
We are back from commercial, as the Uso Brothers' music hit! They make their way to the ring, as Rhodes Scholars' music hit! They also make their way to the ring. Prime Time Players' music hit, but they go on commentary and trash talk all teams.
Match 2. Uso Brothers vs Rhodes Scholars
Finish: Decent tag team action. Cody Rhodes goes for a Clothesline, but Jey Uso ducks and goes for a Superkick! But Rhodes grabs his leg and slams it on the canvas, before jumping off the springboard to strike with a Disaster Kick! He goes for the cover, and gets the win!
Winner: Rhodes Scholars
After the match, Rhodes Scholars celebrate in the ring as the camera heads backstage. CM Punk, is with Kofi Kingston, R-Truth and Alex Riley. Punk tells Truth to run along, as he isn't in the match. Punk says that he knows, that Kingston and Riley won't get on with himself, but they need to in order to win this match. He says that he wants to get on Cena's skin as much as possible. Riley says that Punk needs to learn, that he and Kingston aren't his lackeys. He says that just because Punk is the world champion, it doesn't mean he can start giving them orders that they have to obey. Kingston says that Punk has changed, ever since winning that belt. He says that this isn't the same CM Punk, that he teamed up with. He says that either way, he regrets teaming up with him anyway. Kingston and Riley leave as Punk looks stunned- the camera cuts back to the ring.
3MB (apart from Jinder Mahal) and Team Hell No are already in the ring, as the match begins.
Match 3. 3MB vs Team Hell No
Finish: Drew McIntyre and Daniel Bryan are the legal men. Both men go at it as Bryan goes for a Roundhouse Kick, but McIntyre ducks as Bryan hits the ref! Prime Time Players and Rhodes Scholars come out and crowd the ring! They slide into the ring, and begin a beatdown on Team Hell No as 3MB just watch and stare! The Uso Brothers come out and make the save, as each team runs! The ref is up, not aware of what just happened. Bryan get's up, McIntyre hits him with a Future Shock DDT as he gets the win!
After the match, 3MB celebrate in the ring- but Vickie Guerrero's music hits. She says that after a huge discussion with Booker T, there is only one way to settle this. She says that instead of a tag team match at Wrestlemania, there will be a Tag Team Turmoil! She says that Team Hell No will defend their titles against 3MB, Rhodes Scholars, Uso Brothers and Prime Time Players! The crowd cheer at this announcement as we head to commercial break.
We are back from commercial, as Triple H's music hits. He comes out before sliding into the ring, with a mic. He says that last week, he was accused of kidnapping Brock Lesnar. He says that he doesn't know where, or how Lesnar has disappeared to- but he better have a good explanation for this. He says that he knows, that Lesnar has done a runner- because he is afraid of Triple H. Because he knows, that Triple H is back- and he's better, and bigger than ever. Paul Heyman comes out, and says that Lesnar called him last week. He said that he isn't with Triple H, but what he heard- was screaming on the call. He says that it wasn't Lesnar screaming, it was a women. H looks confused, and says that Lesnar is a disgusting human being- and he will put an end to him once and for all. However, the titantron has a video package- and Brock Lesnar appears. Lesnar says that he's been thinking, long and hard. And it's about time, that he does something that could put Triple H's heart in jeopardy! He says that next to him, is a woman. A woman who is essential to H's life, and right now- she is in danger. Brock says that he can do anything to her..she's vulnerable. He pulls the camera down, and the camera reveals Stephanie McMahon as the woman! Her hands are tied to the chair, as Heyman shouts don't touch her! Triple H drops his mic, and slides out of the ring before running to the back as the camera heads backstage. H is seen asking people, where is Brock Lesnar- they all don't have a clue. H turns to the camera, and says that he hopes Lesnar is watching. Lesnar has made this rivalry personal, and he is going to kill Lesnar!
The camera cuts back to the ring, as Sin Cara makes his way to the ring along with Rey Mysterio. Followed by Justin Gabriel- as they face each other tonight.
Match 5. Sin Cara vs Justin Gabriel
Finish: Nice high-flying action from both. Cara hits Gabriel with a La Mistica, followed by a pin as he gets the win!
Winner: Sin Cara
After the match, Sin Cara celebrates in the ring- as Mysterio slides back into the ring. Gabriel congratulates Sin Cara, as Sin Cara shakes hands with Gabriel- with Gabriel heading to the back. Mysterio grabs a mic, and says that last week- the masked men who attacked himself and Sin Cara, were revealed as Hunico, and Camacho. He says that those two men, are supposed to be Mexican- but instead, all they are doing is giving true Mexican people like Mysterio himself, and Sin Cara a bad name. Mysterio says that putting all that aside, he doesn't care if they are masked- or not. All they care about, is why they attacked himself and Sin Cara! Mysterio is quickly interrupted by Camacho and Hunico as they strike again by attacking Mysterio and Sin Cara from behind! Hunico grabs a mic, and says that Mysterio will find out next week as to why Camacho and Hunico attacked him. He says that the explanation will be a cold one, as he drops the mic on Mysterio's head- with the crowd booing as we head to another commercial break.
We are back from commercial, as John Cena's music hits. He comes out, followed by Tyson Kidd (with Natalya) and Brodus Clay (with Naomi and Cameron). CM Punk's music hits, he also comes out, followed by Kofi Kingston (with R-Truth) and Alex Riley.

Finish: Brilliant action from both teams. Riley and Cena are the legal men! Riley sets Cena up for a TKO but Cena pushes Riley and strikes with a Clothesline! Cena goes for the 5 Knuckle Shuffle but Riley moves out of the way and goes to tag CM Punk in- but Punk moves his hand out of the way! Punk smirks, as Riley tags Kingston instead! Kingston sets Cena up for Trouble in Paradise, but Cena ducks and counters it into an Attitude Adjustment! He goes for the cover, and gets the win for his team!
Winners: John Cena, Tyson Kidd and Brodus Clay
After the match, Cena, Kidd and Clay celebrate in the ring- as Kidd is with Natalya, and Brodus Clay is with Naomi and Cameron. Naomi and Cameron are still arguing, but Clay calms them down, and takes them out of the ring- as Tyson Kidd and Natalya also slide out of the ring. Cena is celebrating on his own, but that's when CM Punk slides into the ring. Punk says that he doesn't have a clue as to why Cena is celebrating- because all his celebrating is going to come to an end after Punk scars him for life. Punk says that Cena has already lost 2 Wrestlemania matches in a row, and it'll all change as this year- it will be..3 Wrestlemania's. The crowd boo as Punk laughs. He says as for The Rock, he's got a few thoughts that he wanted to share with the so called WWE Universe. He says that The Rock is supposed to be in the main event of Wrestlemania, and he should be in the ring right now- representing himself and the rest of the Attitude Era, but he can't even be bothered to build the greatest match of all time in Wrestlemania! He says that as for The Shield, he's said it once- and he'll say it again..he isn't the leader! Cena goes to speak again, but Punk interrupts- and says that he isn't finished. He says that Cena has been a pain in the ass lately, and he wanted to put an end to him at Wrestlemania. But what exactly is the point in that, when he could do it now? Punk goes to attack Cena, but the light's go out! And the light's go back on, and The Shield are all over Cena!!
They are beating the crap out of him, as Punk is enjoying the entertainment. Punk laughs as The Shield nail Cena with a Triple Powerbomb! Punk goes to shake The Shield's hand, but NO! They hit him with a Spear, as they beat Punk down! The crowd are shocked, as Punk isn't the leader of The Shield! The Shield carry on, but Vickie Guerrero's music hits! Vickie says that Shield must be enjoying this, but all their joy will come to an end right now. She says that they can carry on attacking, because nothing that they desire to do, is going to change her decision for next week's main event! She says that The Shield, will face John Cena, CM Punk...and The Rock! The crowd cheer as the main event is announced, but The Shield carry on taking their anger out on Punk, and Cena! But Randy Orton's music hits, as Orton, Ryback and Sheamus make the save! The Shield bail, and Ryback, Orton and Sheamus stand tall in the ring as Raw heads off the air.
Preview for Smackdown:
Kofi Kingston takes on Alex Riley, whereas Brodus Clay takes on Tyson Kidd! Those two matches will determine which superstars will compete at Wrestlemania 29, for the vacant Intercontinental Championship belt!
Each partner from the teams in the Wrestlemania Tag Team Turmoil, will face each other! Jey Uso takes on Jimmy Uso, Cody Rhodes takes on Damian Sandow, Titus O'Neil takes on Darren Young, but 3MB haven't decided who will compete in single's action for Smackdown!
We get a recap of last week's event of Smackdown, as the camera cuts back to the arena. The firework's go off, as JBL and Josh Matthews welcome everyone to a new edition of Smackdown! JBL hypes up tonight's matches, as members of each tag team in the Tag Team Turmoil at Wrestlemania- will face each other. He says that the Usos will face each other. Rhodes Scholars will face each other, and so on. The camera cuts back to the ring, and Wade Barrett's music hits, as he doesn't look too happy. He has a mic with him, and he begins to talk while walking down the ramp. He says that he has been doing a lot of thinking lately- and he's come to a conclusion. He says that the conclusion he's come to, is a word that resembles the WWE in every single aspect. He says that the state of the WWE, is messed up. He begins to talk about how WWE revolves around the word...favoritism. He says that the prime example of favoritism, is Alberto Del Rio. He says that the crowd love kissing Del Rio's ass every week, hence why everything goes Del Rio's way. Barrett says that last week, he spoke words of truth. He says that there were serious consequences after he had attacked Del Rio- but after Del Rio attacked him last week, there wasn't any consequences. Del Rio got away with it. He says that there is only one way to settle this, and it isn't by facing him right now. It's by stripping him out of the world title- and awarding the belt to Barrett. The crowd boo at this, but Alberto Del Rio's music hits. Del Rio comes out, and says that Booker T can go ahead and give him a punishment- but he doesn't care. He says that Barrett deserved that beating he gave him last week, and he would have done a lot more if Smackdown didn't go off the air. Del Rio says that he is absolutely sick of Barrett, and at Wrestlemania- he is going to pummel him. Barrett says that he'd like to see Del Rio do that, but the fact of the matter is- he won't. Because he won't be able to touch Del Rio. Barrett says that he is already fuming about not finishing Del Rio off- and at Wrestlemania, that is exactly what he will do. Booker T's music hits, as the crowd cheer. Booker says that he isn't going to lie- he can't stand Wade Barrett. But he wants the two superstars, to give the crowd a taste of what they can expect at Wrestlemania! He says that the main event for tonight, will be: Wade Barrett- teaming up with Dolph Ziggler! To take on The Miz..and Alberto Del Rio! The crowd cheer, as we head to a commercial break.
We are back from commercial, and Tyson Kidd and Brodus Clay are already in the ring for their match. Before the commercial break, Brodus separated Cameron and Naomi from each other- to stop any issues. Natalya is on commentary.
Match 1. Tyson Kidd vs Brodus Clay – Semi Finals
Finish: Great action from both men. Tamina comes out and attacks Cameron, as Naomi approaches Tamina with a chair- as Tamina bails. Naomi drops the chair, and goes back to her usual position as she informs Clay about Tamina! Clay looks pissed, but he turns around to a roll up from Kidd as Kidd gets the win.
Winner: Tyson Kidd
Tyson Kidd celebrates after the match, as he grabs a mic. He says now that he's confirmed a spot for himself at Wrestlemania for the Intercontinental Championship belt, it's now or never. Kidd says that this is his time to shine, and he is going to walk out of Wrestlemania 29 as the new Intercontinental Champion! Natalya slides into the ring, and herself and Kidd embrace as we head backstage.
We see 3MB arguing over who should compete in the singles match, as Booker T approaches them. Booker says that 3MB need to stop complaining, and all 3 members need to put their wrestling gears on- because it won't be a singles match. It will be a Triple Threat Match between the 3! All 3 men bitch, as we head to a commercial break.
We are back from commercial, as each member of 3MB make their way to the ring as the match goes underway. But Team Hell No's music hits, as they come out for commentary.
Match 2. Drew McIntyre vs Jinder Mahal vs Heath Slater
Finish: Decent action, McInytre hits Slater with a Future Shock DDT as he covers him for the win.
Winner: Drew McIntyre
After the match, McIntyre helps his team mates up as they all grin at Team Hell No. Kane and Daniel Bryan do some more trash talking- as we head to another commercial break.
We are back from commercial, to see Prime Time Players' in the ring for their match as Team Hell No are still on commentary. Titus O'Neil says that this match, is just too ridiculous. He says that none of it helps build up their tag team turmoil match at Wrestlemania. Young says that either way, nobody should fear. Because the Prime Time Players will use this opportunity to showcase each and every single talent they have got.
Match 3. Titus O'Neil vs Darren Young
Finish: Titus O'Neil hit Darren Young with a Clash of the Titus, and covered him for the win.
Winner: Titus O'Neil
After the match, the camera cut backstage as we see the Uso Brothers watching Prime Time Players in action. They turn around, as they see Rhodes Scholars behind them. Cody Rhodes says that the Usos are probably all hyped up about the fact that they are facing each other- because they are simply as deluded as the other tag teams in the Tag Team Turmoil. Damian Sandow says that the Usos may be watching Prime Time Players, but the real team they need to watch- is the Rhodes Scholars. The camera cuts backstage, as The Shield's music hits.
They make their way to the ring as they all have mics. Dean Ambrose begins to speak first, he is as excited for Wrestlemania- as Ryback is when he sees a plate of food. Ambrose says that he is excited, purely based on the fact that The Shield will finally end Ryback, Randy Orton and Sheamus. Ambrose says that they have been spreading too much dirt in the WWE lately, including backstage areas, locker rooms, toilets, etc. Seth Rollins says that The Shield are all about dominating. In fact- when any of the stupid WWE Universe looks up dominating in the dictionary, they will always see the name “The Shield”. Because The Shield have dominated, and annihilated every single major star in the WWE so far- and Ryback, Orton, and Sheamus will be the next victims in this continuous massacre. Roman Reigns says that this past week on Raw, they were about to give the main eventers of Wrestlemania- a taste of justice. He says that the reason why they attacked Punk, was to stop all the rumors of Punk being the leader of The Shield...because he isn't! He says that The Shield are an equal force, who will continue to dominate WWE! But Randy Orton's music hits to The Shield's displeasure. Orton comes out with his partners, and he has a mic- as he says that he hopes The Shield are excited for next week, because it's about time they got their wrestling boots on for singles action! Sheamus says that Randy is correct, because next week- The Shield will be competing in matches. He says that Sheamus himself, will team up with the hungry Ryback- to take on Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins! The crowd cheer as The Shield look pissed, bar Roman Reigns. Sheamus tells Reigns not to get too happy either, because he'll be facing The Viper next week! The crowd explode with cheers as The Shield don't look too happy! Ambrose says that this is an absolute injustice! He says that The Shield won't stand for this! Ryback interrupts, and says that nobody cares, and The Shield shouldn't care either, because they will have to stand for it! Orton, Ryback and Sheamus all grin at The Shield as we head to another commercial.
We are back from commercial, as we the Uso Brothers' in the ring! They both shake hands, before clashing as the bell rings.
Match 4. Jey Uso vs Jimmy Uso
Finish: Decent action from the two. Jimmy goes for a Superkick, but Jey ducks and he strikes with a Spear! Jey goes for a Superfly Splash, he covers Jimmy for the win!
Winner: Jey Uso
Both men celebrate, before heading over to the announcers table. Jey says that they need to keep a sharp eye on Rhodes Scholars, as they seem to be really over-confident heading into this match. The camera heads backstage where we see the security breaking up a brawl between Big Show and Antonio Cesaro! However the camera cuts back to the ring as Rhodes Scholars' music hit, as Rhodes and Sandow separately make their ways to the ring.
Match 5. Damian Sandow vs Cody Rhodes
Finish: The bell rings, but both men slide outside of the ring and grab mics. Sandow says that if the WWE Universe really had an impression that Rhodes Scholars were going to compete against each other, they are sorely mistaken. Rhodes says that the Rhodes Scholars are a team- and they don't need a leader to make sure they stand out. The ref rings for the bell, as we get a double count out.
After the match, Rhodes Scholars both drop their mics and smirk- but the Usos jump them from behind with Bulldog's as the crowd cheer! The Usos pose for the crowd, and we head to a commercial break.
We are back from commercial, as The Miz and Alex Riley are in the ring for Miz. TV. The Miz says that without any further ado...the guest for this week's Miz. TV is Dolph Ziggler! Ziggler makes his way to the ring with AJ Lee, as The Miz goes to ask him his first question. Miz talks about how last week, Big E Langston was found attacked. Miz asks Ziggler if he has anything to do with this. Ziggler takes The Miz' mic from him as the crowd boo! Ziggler says that obviously he has nothing to do with this, he says that Big E is his friend- but most importantly, he is AJ's friend. And he would never, ever hurt anyone who is close to AJ! The crowd boo as Ziggler tells them to shut up. Miz says that he finds that funny, because when he was attacked- Ziggler came to his aid along with AJ, and it was all in a rush. Miz says that no one in the WWE roster, has a reason to attack Big E unlike Ziggler. He says that the tension between Ziggler and Big E has been going on from Elimination Chamber, to today. Ziggler says that he has already told The Miz, that he has nothing to do with this attack- he tells The Miz to stop making a fool out himself, and carry on with the next damn question! The crowd boo, as The Miz laughs. Miz says that no one, and he means no one- tells him what to do, especially not a freak like Ziggler- along with his anorexic dog of a girlfriend. The crowd cheer as Ziggler smirks. Ziggler says that The Miz's jokes aren't funny, in fact- all he is doing right now, is showing off. He says that whenever The Miz shows off, it isn't funny at all- because he hasn't perfected it..unlike Ziggler himself. Ziggler says that he has every right to show off, but The Miz interrupts and says that Ziggler is correct- he does have every right to show off. He has plenty of reasons to show off, but he wants to make sure that Ziggler talks about the main thing he has to show off about- which is being the talentless freak that he is. The crowd boo, as AJ immediately slaps The Miz! Riley pulls AJ off The Miz, but Ziggler goes face to face with Riley. A brawl is about to happen, but Booker T comes out and tells them all to stop! He says that he wants Ziggler, AJ and The Miz out of this ring right now! Because it is time for some mid-card action! He says that up next, we have Kofi Kingston vs Alex Riley as the crowd cheer- and we head to another commercial break.
We are back from commercial, and Kofi Kingston makes his way to the ring with R-Truth.
Match 6. Kofi Kingston vs Alex Riley – Semi Finals
Finish: Great action from both men. Kingston goes for a Trouble in Paradise- but Riley ducks. R-Truth tries to distract Riley, but The Miz doesn't allow it. Truth gets his hands off Riley, as The Miz tries to calm Truth's excitement down. The ref comes out, and sends Truth to the back as Dolph Ziggler slides into the ring! Ziggler quickly hits Riley with a Superkick, before sliding outside the ring and running to the back as Kingston doesn't know what's just happened. Kingston pins Riley, and he gets the win to go through to the finals at Wrestlemania!
Winner: Kofi Kingston
After the match, The Miz and Alex Riley are fuming at this result! But Booker T's music hits, as he comes out with a mic! Booker says that if Kingston isn't aware of what just happened, Dolph Ziggler interfered on Kingston's behalf. Booker says that Ziggler hit Riley with a Superkick, as Riley was put down enough for Kingston to cover him for the win. Booker says that he isn't going to allow this result. Booker says that at Wrestlemania, Tyson Kidd will face Kofi Kingston...and Alex Riley for the Intercontinental Championship belt! The crowd explode with cheers, at this announcement as Kingston shakes Riley's hand, and we head to another commercial.
We are back from another commercial, as The Miz, and Alberto Del Rio are already in the ring! Wade Barrett's music hits, as he makes his way to the ring. Dolph Ziggler's music also hits, as the crowd boo the crap out of him.
Match 7. Dolph Ziggler and Wade Barrett vs The Miz and Alberto Del Rio
Finish: Ziggler and The Miz are the legal men. Earlier on in the match, Big E Langston appeared on the TitanTron at his house. He says that he doesn't have a clue about who attacked him- but whoever it was, he says that they need to try again. Langston says that this isn't a career threatening injury- but it wasn't far from it. Langston says that when he does come back, he'll come back bigger and better than before and before he does return- he'll find his attacker sooner rather than later!
This distracts The Miz, as The Miz turns around to a Superkick from Ziggler! Barrett tags Ziggler in from behind, as he sets The Miz up for a Bullhammer- but Ziggler gets pissed as he pushes Barrett! Del Rio uses the advantage to strike from behind and lay both men out Enzuigiri's as the crowd cheer! Del Rio goes back to his position, but The Miz tags him in! Barrett slides back into the ring, and locks Barrett in a Cross Armbreaker as the crowd cheer- but Barrett doesn't tap out. Del Rio increases the pressure, as Barrett screams- in addition to that, the ref begins counting. However, Del Rio doesn't let go as the ref counts to 10.
Winners: Dolph Ziggler and Wade Barrett (via DQ)
After the match, Del Rio gets pissed and he complains to the referee but he turns around to a Bullhammer from Barrett- before Barrett heads to the back! Ziggler slides into the ring, celebrating the victory- but he turns around to a Skull Crushing Finale from The Miz as he stands tall in the ring, with Smackdown heading off the air!

The fireworks go off as JR and Michael Cole welcome you to a new edition of Monday Night Raw! However, we get a quick recap of last week's events- as Vince McMahon announced The Shield vs The Rock, John Cena and CM Punk as the main event for tonight! However, CM Punk's music hits- as Punk makes his way to the ring. Punk grabs a mic, and says that this is all Cena's, and The Rock's fault! He says that for months, and months- he has been saying that he is NOT the leader of The Shield, but as usual- the delusional idiots in Rock and Cena have caused them to attack him to prove a damn point! Punk says that he is the best in the world, and he doesn't deserve to be treated like this- but by Rock, Cena, Vince, or even Jesus himself! Punk says to add on to the pathetic goings in the WWE, he'll be teaming up with Cena and The Rock, to take on The Shield! Punk says that he knows for a fact, that Rock and Cena will begin to get cocky in the match, and take The Shield on themselves- but Punk isn't going to allow it. John Cena's music hits, as he comes out. He says that Punk must be crazy, if he really thinks that he can put The Shield done by himself! Cena says that Punk is complaning about Rock and himself getting cocky- but wasn't Punk the one being all cocky the last couple of weeks? The crowd cheer as Punk looks pissed. Punk says that in this match, Rock, and Cena better get out of his way- because he wants The Shield all to himself. Cena interrupts, by saying that if Punk does take this alone- not only will The Shield leave Raw victorious, but CM Punk will leave Raw which his jaw broken. The Rock's music hits, as the crowd cheer heavily. Rock says that both Punk and Cena need to shut their booby traps! He says that he doesn't care about what Cena, or Punk say. They will work as a team, not because they will want to. Not because they need to. Because they HAVE to. Rock says that it's now or never, if they want to stop The Shield from causing anarchy in the WWE- then team work is needed. Rock drops his mic, and poses for the crowd- as the three men stare at each other, and we head to a commercial break.
We are back from commercial, and R-Truth's music hits. Truth and Kofi Kingston make their way to the ring. Tyson Kidd (with Natalya), and Alex Riley's music hit. Both men make their way to the ring. Rhodes Scholars' music hit, as they are the final team to come out.
