Backstage, Vickie is heading to the ring to reveal more evidence of the scandal.
Vickie is in the ring with Dolph.
Ziggler: You know the definition of a scandal is an action that is morally wrong in the eyes of many. I just had a match and I knew that off the top of my head. I’m not here to hide behind my manager. I’m here for the truth. And the truth cannot be denied.
Ziggler shows pictures on the TitanTron of Cena and AJ having dinner and going to their rooms in their bathrobes.
Ziggler: I wonder if Cena and AJ are having a great time together?
Vickie: Last week AJ said that if she was ever in the same ring with me that she would “give her the beating a lifetime”. Let me remind you that I am the managing supervisor of Raw and I won’t be threatened like that by a little girl. I have evidence that AJ cannot talk herself out of. So come out and explain! Let’s go, AJ!
AJ comes out and walks down to the ring.
AJ: Why are you doing this? You’ve got power. You cost me my job-
Vickie: I didn’t cost you anything. You did. Just admit to having an affair with John Cena.
AJ: I’m not going to admit anything. I’m not going to stand here and lie.
Vickie: Just admit it! Do you know who I am? I am Vickie Guerrero!
AJ: I could care less
Vickie: I am your boss! Be very careful what you say, because I will disclose this evidence. AJ? Be very careful with what you says I am your boss. Admit that you had an affair! ADMIT IT!
AJ: OKAY! I admit it. I admit the truth. John Cena and I…are just friends! Nothing inappropriate has ever happened between the two of us. Now it’s your turn, Vickie. Admit what this is really about. This isn’t about the truth. It’s about the fact that at Raw 1000 Vince McMahon appointed me the General Manager instead of you. This is about the face that I embarrassed you in this ring twice, and you can’t stand the fact that if I wanted to I could do it again. Vickie, you are just throwing your weight around. And that weight is pretty considerable.
Vickie: Okay, AJ. Now you have really caused trouble for yourself. I have very interesting voice mail that will silence all the listeners. Shall we play the first one?
The voice mail plays. “AJ” is telling John that what happened last night was a mistake.
Vickie: Do you deny that that was your voice?
AJ: It is, but I never made that call.
Another voice mail plays. “AJ” says they need to stop doing this, but when she sees him she loses control.
How did you do that?
Shall we play another one? Oh lets!
Third voice mail. “AJ” says she wants to be very clear about this. He drives her crazy. They should be together.
AJ: You hacked into John Cena’s cell and edited those phone messages together. You are a desperate lying litte-
Ziggler: AJ, AJ, AJ…no more lies. No more denying, no more running away. We all know something happened. And now…you can’t see him. Tell me something, AJ. Which was more disappointing and unsatisfying. The fact that John won’t talk to you anymore, or all those nights in hotel rooms?
John Cena comes out and marches down to the ring. He slides in and AJ holds him back. AJ then turns around and slaps Ziggler in the face. Cena adds to that with a right hand. Ziggler rolls out of the ring and Vickie chases after her while Cena and AJ watch them leave.
Still to come, Cena takes on CM Punk tonight!
Cena and AJ are backstage.
AJ: What was that?
Cena: Listen, I just wanna make sure you’re alright. You okay? I don’t know why you have to go through this. This is low even for them. They’re going on about something that never would happen.
AJ: It’s fine, but…NEVER would happen?
Cena: Uh, I…I’ve got to go. I have a match.
Cena leaves. AJ watches him go and smiles.

Jerry: Wow. I have no idea what I should say right now. This is so overwhelming. You have no idea what this means to me. Thank you. I was thinking there was a time where I would never step back in a WWE ring again, so for this night to actually happen is beyond words for him. He doesn’t want to get cheesy but there’s a seasonal movie that comes out called “It’s A Wonderful Life”. In it the guy had no idea how much his friends and family meant to him. It took a near death experience for him to realize that, and I have been living that movie. So many thoughts and prayers Were sent my way, and I really appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. Thank you so much!
WWE Champion CM Punk comes out and heads to the ring along with Paul Heyman. Lawler exits the ring. He looks at Lawler and laughs.
Punk: Jerry…i’m glad you left the ring when you did, because if you didn’t I would have beat you to death again. Boo me! Because what I do is in bad taste, the things I say are disrespectful, but whatever you do don’t point a finger at Jerry Lawler. He died and came back to life! He’s a real life zombie. Everybody knows I love zombies! But the fact is that your behavior is disrespectful. What you do is in bad taste because to me a sixty two year old man putting on his wrestling gear and thinking he can relive his glory days and go toe to toe with the undisputed WWE Champion is in bad taste? What did you think was going to happen when you go against the best in the world? I guess one of the side effects is a heart attack, and shame on all of you for pointing the finger at him when the blame is solely on him. It’s all your fault, King! It’s true! And you people point a finger at me and say i’m a bad person and what I do is in bad taste. No, shame on your Jerry Lawler for stealing my spotlight when this heart attack started. People were looking at the number of minutes Lawler was clinically dead, but who cares? The only number that matters is 350, the number of days he has been WWE Champion. He tied Diesel, the 9th longest reigning champion. You can dismiss that title reign if you want, but the magic number is 365. At Survivor Series I will beat Ryback, I will beat Cena, just like I have before. From the bottom of my heart Jerry, i’m glad you’re back so you can watch my match. Just try not to croak before then.
Lawler: I’ll try not to. But the way I see it, the only thing on life support is his WWE title reign.
Punk: Oh, that’s nice. Maybe you wants to get in the ring with me-
Paul starts coughing. He collapses in the ring. Punk turns to him.
Punk: Paul? Paul, you alright?
Punk checks on him to see if he’s alright. He starts giving him chest compressions.
Punk: Somebody get help! Somebody get out here!
Heyman suddenly sits up and laughs at Jerry.
Punk: My God, Paul you almost gave me a heart attack!
Mick Foley comes out and heads to the ring.
Foley: You know Punk, it doesn’t cease to amaze me that somebody who demands respect like you won’t give any to someone who deserves it like Jerry.
Punk: How about giving respect to Paul? He just had a heart attack and he didn’t need two months like Jerry. What is he doing out here? They’re no longer captains of the Survivor Series team because Vince McMahon screwed him over. Ryback’s no longer on your team, so you should worry about who the fifth member is.
Foley: I’m not worried. I’m not picking the last member of team Foley. The fans are.
Punk: Wow. I couldn’t be happier for you. But a little piece of advice, you shouldn’t care what the WWE Universe thinks. Hell, I stopped giving a damn what people think of me and i’ve been better off ever since. Your team should be called team worthless because everything about them is worthless-
Foley: SHUT UP! Want me to tell you a secret about Jerry Lawler?! He was dead! HE WAS GONE! And thanks to the medical team and the prayers of others he is alive! And you don’t care! You think the revival of King involves him but it doesn’t! You think i’m happy about the change? I wanted to be part of a team that taught him a lesson, but you don’t care about lessons. Now you’re going up against Ryback and Cena and one of them is going to stirp that title from you.
Punk: I’ve been doing just fine with my title reign, and all the passion and screaming and finger pointing doesn’t matter. None of this involves him at all.
Foley: Actually, some of it does involve me. Before I came out I was informed that during your match with John Cena right here in Columbus, Ohio, that I of the finger pointing would be the special guest enforcer. Have a nice day!
Foley exits the ring while Punk and Heyman talk to each other about it.
