Vickie Guerrero vs. AJ Lee
The doctors are pushing Vickie to the ring on the stretcher. Vickie is complaining and groaning all the way to the ring. She screams big time to the point that it’s more annoying than usual. Oh god, someone shut her up please. Please! AJ’s music hits and out she comes. That only shuts her up temporarily, as we can still hear Vickie screaming over top AJ’s music. My god please stop. I’m begging you. PLEASE! They roll Vickie in the ring. Vickie faints and lays on her back. AJ, who is with Tamina Snuka, looks at her with disgust. The ref checks on Vickie. Vickie says she needs water. “Water. Can we have some water. She needs water,” says the referee. Vickie drinks some and wets herself down as AJ looks on smiling. The bell rings and Vickie crawls across the ring and out to the floor. Vickie is stopped by Tamina. Vickie faints again. Vickie crawls up Tamina’s body. She uses Tamina’s hand as a fan and then runs up the ramp. AJ stops her. AJ throws Vickie in the ring. Wonder if all the fainting Vickie is doing is a shot at AJ for fainting on Saturday in England, or just a big coincidence? Hmm…Anyways, Vickie is begging off AJ on her knees in the ring. AJ nods as if she understands. Then she slaps Vickie in the Black Widow. Vickie taps within a second. AJ skips around. Vickie looks bummed in the ring. That’s about it. And thank god, by the way.
Winner: AJ Lee
Backstage: Damien Sandow, Dolph Ziggler & Triple H
Backstage, Damien Sandow and Dolph Ziggler are in Triple H’s office. HHH says he knows they have differences, and tonight at RAW Country, they’ll get to settle them. He says the two will compete in a “Broadway Brawl.” He says what does that mean? He says he doesn’t even know, but they’ll make it entertaining. He tells them to go out there and make music together.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Damien Sandow
We return live in the arena and the ring is filled with musical instruments. Guitars, bass-fiddles, drums, etc. Dolph Ziggler’s music hits and out he comes. The announcers joke with Jerry Lawler during Ziggler’s introduction about Andy Kaufman still being alive. Damien Sandow’s music hits and out comes “the uncrowned champion of WWE.” No promo from Sandow, as these two immediately start brawling. Sandow throws Ziggler out to the floor. Sandow has an electric guitar, but he sets it down and goes out to the floor after Ziggler. Sandow grabs the guitar and goes to hit Ziggler with it. Ziggler moves and Sandow smashes the guitar into the ringside steps. Ziggler leaps off the steps and nails Sandow. Ziggler throws Sandow into the ring. Sandow catches Ziggler coming back in the ring and is putting the boots to the “Show Off.” Sandow grabs another guitar but Ziggler blasts him with punches to make him drop it. Ziggler knocks Sandow out of the ring with a picture-perfect dropkick. Ziggler goes to the top rope but Sandow stops him. Sandow throws Ziggler off and Ziggler goes crashing through a keyboard on a stand. We head to a mid-match commercial. When we return from commercial, Ziggler blasts Sandow with an instrument and hits him with the Fame-Asser. He attempts to pin him but only gets two. Both guys and up beating each other up with every remaining instrument in the ring. Sandow has the last instrument that’s in one piece, another electric guitar. He goes to nail Ziggler with it but Ziggler moves and Sandow smashes into the ringside post. Ziggler grabs a piece of the drum-set, a snare-drum I believe, and smashes it over Sandow’s head. He does the same with the large bass part of the drum, which is stuck around Sandow’s body. Ziggler grabs a Honky Tonk Man style guitar, blasts it over Sandow’s head, and pins him. 1-2-3. Ziggler wins. By the way, when Ziggler used the last guitar, he mocked Jeff Jarrett’s strut before whacking Sandow with it. Just thought I’d point that out.
Winner: Dolph Ziggler

Cena looks at the camera and says “here we go” before walking, not running, to the ring. The music dies-down and Cena looks around smiling, waiting to see if he’ll be cheered or boo’d. He gets somewhat of a mxied-reaction, more positive than negative. That”s how it sounds on TV at least. Cena talks about wearing an arm-brace due to last week.

Back live, Cena says he returned on SmackDown only to have “this happen.” Another video package airs showing Del Rio attacking him during the Arm Wrestling contest on SmackDown this past Friday night. Cena says because of those two reasons he hasn’t been in the best of moods, which is why he thanks the WWE Universe for their excitement tonight. JBL points out that some are cheering and some are boo’ing. Cena says it’s energy like this that made him come back as soon as he could when he tore his triceps. Cena says now that he’s wearing a sling, maybe he came back to soon. He says maybe he pushed too hard and tried to be some sort of super-hero. He asks himself if maybe he shouldn’t be the World Heavyweight Champion, and then he looks around at the audience and their excitement and he thinks, you’re damn right I should be the World Heavyweight Champion. He says the champion should be made of toughness, not cheap-shots like Alberto Del Rio. He says in six days, Del Rio doesn’t know who he’s gonna be stepping in the ring with. He says he has the honor of performing in front of his family in Boston at Survivor Series.
