Paul Heyman says he and CM Punk agree with this edict then nominates himself to take over AJ Lee’s spot until he’s interrupted by Vickie Guerrero and Dolph Ziggler who also wants the RAW GM Spot.

Paul Heyman and Vickie Guerrero argue until Dolph Ziggler interrupts and says that everyone can agree that this is all AJ Lee’s fault. Ziggler proposes the idea of Vickie Guerrero and Paul Heyman teaming up to be Co-GMs until AJ Lee ‘s music hits and she skips down to the ring.

AJ Lee announces the WWE Board Of Directors have placed her on probation. AJ says she knows she wasn’t supposed to touch another person but she thought the B.O.D. would make an excuse for a “Slimy, Shady, Greasy, Creepy as all hell, wormlike excuse for a man like Paul Heyman.”

AJ says she’s been appointed an Executive Coach to help her with her development as a RAW General Manager.

Daniel Bryan’s music hits and he comes down to the ring. CM Punk asks if Daniel Bryan is AJ Lee’s coach.

*EXPLOSION!* Kane comes out next and says that everyone forgot to mention a very important fact about AJ Lee. Kane mentions that AJ Lee is a Phenomenal Kisser. Kane says everything else Daniel Bryan is true with the exception of one thing: KANE is the Tag Team Champions. Daniel Bryan and Kane start arguing which leads to CM Punk and Dolph Ziggler arguing which leads to Paul Heyman and Vickie Guerrero arguing

The Sheamus/Big Show Debate: 

Booker T comes out then announces Big Show vs. Sheamus at Hell In A Cell. Booker T brings out Big Show, followed by Sheamus. Booker T thanks Big Show and Sheamus for participating in this debate and says that it’s traditional to start off with an opening statement.

Booker T starts with Big Show, who almost thanks Booker T but then says that the debate is ridiculous and that what’s going to happen is he’s going to walk in Hell In A Cell, knock Sheamus out and win the World Heavyweight Championship.

Sheamus says his opening statement, he introduces himself and calls himself the World Heavyweight Champion. Sheamus thanks Booker T for hosting the debate then gets a cheap pop by mentioning Oklahoma.

Question 1:

Sheamus says he’s been a fighter and he’s never ducked out of a fight. Sheamus says he’s looking forward to a fight (We get it.) Sheamus says he’s never faced a bigger, stronger, more impressive Superstar than The Big Show. Sheamus mocks The Big Show by saying he’s got B.O. and that his breath smells, but his biggest concern is that this match lasts longer than 45 Seconds.

Booker T asks for Big Show’s rebuttal, Big Show defends his hygiene then calls Sheamus out for not taking this debate seriously and not taking Big Show seriously. Big Show tells Sheamus to stop being a funny guy as Booker T moves on to Question 2.

Big Show says that his WMD KO has knocked out more Superstars, won more titles and is more powerful than the Brogue Kick. Big Show lists John Cena and Randy Orton as references then mentions that Sheamus can’t get his foot up to Big Show’s face. Sheamus responds by mentioning Daniel Bryan.

Sheamus agrees and says we should see a tout. Sheamus says he promised his “cousin” “Rey Mysterio Sullivan” that he would show his tout on RAW. That’s now how debates work, but Sheamus doesn’t follow the rules anyway.

Touts on Touts on Touts:  “Rey Mysterio Sullivan” asks Big Show how it feels that he’s going to have his head kicked off so hard that it’s going to follow the Blarney Stone all the way over to the Rio Grande. Then ends it with “Arriba!” It’s Sheamus pretending to be Mexican again. I’m not making this up.

Booker T calls Sheamus out and tells him, AGAIN, that this is a serious debate. Sheamus says he’s being serious, but Big Show yells at Sheamus telling him to be serious.

Sheamus says he has a closing line and then asks Big Show how it feels to lose the World Heavyweight Championship in 45 Seconds only for Sheamus to win the title from Daniel Bryan in 18 Seconds.

Big Show gets fed up and gets face to face with Sheamus. Big Show takes off his jacket and Sheamus takes off his shirt as they stare each other down until Big Show decides to walk away from Sheamus.

CM Punk says the people feel the same way about Ross and want to shower him with respect, they don’t know the first thing about respect.

CM Punk says he’s “The Best In The World” and deserves respect so he wants Jim Ross to teach the WWE Universe about respect by telling them that CM Punk is the Best In The World

Jim Ross says he’s glad CM Punk’s not here to embarrass him because CM Punk’s been making an ass out of himself, embarrassing himself over the last several weeks on television.

CM Punk tries to force Jim Ross to say that he in the Best In The World. Jim Ross refuses and says he’s been blessed to call some of the greatest WWE matches in history involving the Best In The World. Jim Ross says he’s called Wrestlemania Main Events with guys like Shawn Michaels, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, Triple H and The Undertaker.

Jim Ross brings up Stone Cold Steve Austin and says that he and the others he mentioned never asked to be called The Best In The World because they earned it. Ross says that if CM Punk wants to prove that he’s the Best In The World, he needs to face John Cena and whip his ass in the Hell In A Cell. If Punk does that, Jim Ross will be the first person in line to call Punk the Best In The World, but until then, he and Punk have nothing to talk about.

CM Punk gets in Jim Ross’ face then takes Jim Ross’ hat off then stomps on it.

CM Punk says he doesn’t run away from fights and that he’s beaten John Cena time and time again. Punk brings up that the Oklahoma City Thunder failed to beat the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals and they don’t get another chance. Punk says that they’re in the squared circle and men don’t run, they fight. CM Punk tells Jim Ross that he needs to run because if he doesn’t, Punk will hurt him so bad that he will never ever commentate another Monday Night RAW broadcast again.

Jim Ross tries to leave but CM Punk grabs his arm. CM Punk says he won’t allow Jim Ross to go back there and do his job. CM Punk tells Jim Ross to leave the ring with his head down and go backstage. Punk wants to see Jim Ross take the walk of shame.

Jim Ross walks up the ramp as CM Punk continues to insult him, a bald Superstar’s theme plays and the crowd goes crazy.

Ryback and CM Punk have a staredown. Paul Heyman screams to CM Punk that he doesn’t fight for free and that he gets paid to fight because he is “The Best In The World.”
