Vickie Guerrero’s Evidence:

Vickie Guerrero says she’s proud of her accomplishments and is thrilled AJ Lee resigned as the GM of RAW. Vickie says Hanky Panky is not allowed. Vickie says they are professionals and need to be honest, which is what John Cena has a problem with. Vickie Guerrero asks us to join her in reviewing this “outrageous scandal.”

Vickie Guerrero is reviewing the scandal, but the crowd is booing her too loud.

Vickie Guerrero gets ready to reveal her next piece of footage, but John Cena’s theme plays and he comes marching down to the ring.

Vickie Guerrero tells John Cena that she’s not going to stop her from revealing the footage and that she runs a clean show.. Cena says “Vickie Guerrero running a clean show is like me learning a new wrestling move. It’s not going to happen.” This gets a huge pop from the crowd.

John Cena calls Vickie Guerrero out on her history of affairs with Edge and Dolph Ziggler and abuse of power. Excluding from this list is Eric Escobar.

John Cena says since the crowd keeps asking “Who Are Ya?” Vickie Guerrero should answer her. Cena says Vickie Guerrero is not a cougar, but she is a “taffy nose, dodgy old slapper with the face like a swamp-donkey.” This gets a bigger pop from the crowd.

Vickie Guerrero tells John Cena not to try and turn this around on her then reveals her latest piece of security footage. The footage is of AJ Lee in a bathrobe, knocking on a door then going inside the hotel room.

John Cena says that the footage means nothing. Vickie Guerrero says that she has more footage. The newest piece of footage is of John Cena in a towel putting a “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door. Vickie Guerrero says that that must’ve been “One Heck Of A Business Meeting!”

John Cena says those are two different pieces of footage and he hung the sign on the door because he didn’t want to be disturbed. Vickie Guerrero says that since John Cena can’t defend himself, she wants AJ Lee to come out and defend herself in person.

AJ Lee is shown on the titantron. AJ says that Vickie Guerrero doesn’t want her to go out there because if she goes out there, and explains herself, she will give Vickie the beating of her life. AJ says if that happens, she’ll get fired and be unable to do the thing that she loves to do. Dolph Ziggler puts his arm around AJ and says that we all know what AJ “loves” to do, then smirks at the camera. Vickie Guerrero starts cackling as John Cena rushes to the back to check on AJ.

Backstage: Paul Heyman tries to persuade someone into joining Team Punk while trashing The Miz. Heyman says Team Punk needs someone like this person. The camera pans to Wade Barrett who says he refused Heyman last week and he refuses him now. Barrett says he doesn’t truth Heyman, then immediately reconsiders under one condition: Paul Heyman ows him. Heyman agrees and Barrett requests to have this in writing.

Brad Maddox (#HeartthrobRef) Interview: Michael Cole reminds us of the incident then brings out #HeartthrobRef to explain himself. HTR comes down to the ring.

As he tries to speak, a “Feed Me More” chant breaks out.

#HeartthrobRef says for years, he’s tried to get into the WWE but the door has been slammed in his face. He’s had seveal try outs, he’s been to RAW and Smackdown events, and eventually was given a developmental deal, but was still overlooked because he’s only 6ft. tall and 207lbs and not a monster with a mowhawk, that wears a mask and flips 3 times in the air before hitting the ground.

#HeartthrobRef says that WWE Officials told him he would never, never, never….never, make it to the main roster, but his dream got strong. HTR says he wants to be somebody, no matter how many people tell him that he’s nobody. HTR says he made a vow to himself to do whatever it takes to get to the WWE, and is why he became a referee. HTR says that when AJ Lee hired him, all he needed was one chance to make an impact.

#HeartthrobRef claims CM Punk had no idea of his plan and that Punk was just as surprised as Ryback and the WWE Universe. HTR says knows what he did wasn’t right, but wanted to make an impact, and that his actions were driven by the desire to be somebody. HTR screams that he’s famous now and that people know his name all over the world, even in England. HTR says his dream is to be a WWE Superstar and he wants a contract and a match with Ryback, because at this point, nobody is going to forget who Brad Maddox is now.

HTR ends his promo with a hilarious “Thank You” and is about to leave until Mr. McMahon’s music hits and the place goes crazy! Mr. McMahon comes out and repeats #HeartthrobRef ‘s requests about a contract Ryback. McMahon says there’s a difference between being famous and having a death wish then mentions he’ll give HTR a Million Dollar Contract if he can defeat The Ryback next week on RAW.

Mr. McMahon says speaking of contracts, then walks off. A few seconds later, McMahon brings out Vickie Guerrero and asks her why CM Punk is not defending his WWE Championship at Survivor Series.
