Dolph Ziggler Speaks:

Dolph Ziggler says cashing in his Money In The Bank contract last week and becoming World Heavyweight Champion was the single greatest moment in the history of Monday Night RAW, and it was all because of him. Ziggler asks how can he top that and he answers that it’s easy since there has never been a World Heavyweight Champion as charismatic, as athletic and as flamboyant as him. Ziggler says he is just too good and doesn’t care who boos him. Ziggler gives examples of Showing Off by referencing NFL Touchdowns and Louisville NCAA’s Basketball wins then says Showing Off is what you do when you’re better than everyone else, and that he backs it up every single night.

Dolph Ziggler says when you’re as good as he is, perks like fame, fortune, everyone wanting your autograph and AJ come your way. Dolph kisses AJ then says no one will ever be as good as him until Alberto Del Rio interrupts him.

Alberto Del Rio says that last week he congratulated Dolph Ziggler and told him that when the time was right, he’d invoke his rematch clause and that time is now. Dolph Ziggler tries to talk his way out of a rematch with Alberto Del Rio, but Vickie Guerrero interrupts and makes the match official.

Ryback Explains His Actions:

Ryback says Wrestlemania was the greatest night of John Cena’s career and the worst night of his. Ryback says John Cena beat The Rock, won the WWE Championship, found redemption and was on top of the world, while he lost and was on the bottom. Ryback says that there’s only one way for both of them to go: Ryback Up, Cena down, then shows a clip of him attacking John Cena last week.

Ryback assumes John Cena wants to know why he attacked him last week, but says what choice did he have. Ryback mentions John Cena reaching out to him when he first came to the WWE, telling the WWE Universe that they were friends and giving Ryback the WWE Title Shot back in October when Cena was injured (Flashback.) Ryback says John Cena claimed to always have his back, but now he realizes a friendship with John Cena means floating in the shadows of John Cena.

Ryback says he is not an afterthought or a sidekick and there is no light bright enough, not even John Cena to eclipse the force known as Ryback. Ryback compares John Cena to Superman and tells him to say Hello to Kryptonite. Ryback says during John Cena’s Road To Redemption, he left Ryback to fend for himself. Flashback to The Shield triple powerbombing Ryback the second time.

Ryback reminds us that he was there for John Cena when Cena was attacked by The Shield, then brings up that Cena got lucky at the Royal Rumble. After a Royal Rumble Flashback, Ryback claims John Cena left him to fend The Shield off by himself again. After a Flashback to Elimination Chamber, Ryback says John Cena only cared about winning the WWE Championship then congratulates him on his victory.

Ryback claims John Cena joking around last week was him acting like no one else deserved to be there, as if Ryback didn’t exist and that the title didn’t belong to him. Ryback says he sat back and waited for John Cena to say something but he didn’t. Ryback said Cena tried to keep him in Cena’s shadow, but last week he stepped out and now John Cena has no choice but to see Ryback for what he really is: The Biggest Threat to Cena’s WWE Title Reign EVER. Ryback breathes hard then ends his speech with “Ryback Rules.”

Cena says he made an open challenge to any WWE Superstar, but Ryback waited for his back to be turned to knock him down. Hearing boring chants, Cena spins it around by saying Ryback made the WWE Universe sit through a boring highlight reel.

John Cena says Ryback knocked him down once and calls Ryback out on his statement about being the biggest threat to the WWE Championship. Cena says he’s been to war with Superstars Randy Orton, Triple H, Shawn Michaels and that’s a list of his friends, but as friends they beat the hell out of each other. Cena says friends is something but the WWE Championship is everything.

During John Cena’s promo The Shield is briefly shown getting ready:

John Cena tells Ryback that he understands what Ryback did last week, but he just doesn’t like how he did it. Cena tells Ryback that with all of Ryback’s muscles, he lacks the two things needed to be a champion: The space between his ears and a piece between his legs.

John Cena says last week Ryback held on to the WWE Championship after his attack, but this week, it needs to be a little bit different. Cena takes off his shirt and says this week Ryback should try and earn the WWE Championship.
