IN THE RING
The Nexus (Wade Barrett & Justin Gabriel & David Otunga & Michael Tarver & Heath Slater) + John Cena: Wade told the fans to simmer down. Wade said you can see he was victorious last night since Nexus is still there. Wade said before they bring out the newest member of Nexus there are a couple of issues he would like to address. Wade said he has identified the 2 mystery assailants who ran in on his match last night; Husky Harris and Michael McGillicutty. Wade said he did not ask either man to get involved and they aren’t in Nexus. Wade asked the other 4 members what they were thinking almost causing him a DQ last night. Wade said he didn’t want to hear an excuse right now because tonight is about celebration and inducting the newest member. Wade told everyone to put their hands together for John Cena. John Cena came down to the ring looking sad. Wade said he knew John was a man of his word and the deal was he needed to become a member of Nexus. Wade said in time John will realize that this is the best thing that has ever happened to him. Michael said John put his hands on him and even made jokes about him, and tried to threaten his lively hood. Michael said now the joke is on John because he failed. Michael said the rest of them have a gift for him. Michael pulled out a little arm band with N on it. John stared Michael down. John took off his Cenation arm band and put on the Nexus one. Heath said he knows the transition is difficult but they’re all there for him. Heath said the public wants to know his thoughts. Heath said instead of putting him on the spot they’ve got an official statement for him to read. Wade said this was non negotiable and he will read it now. John acknowledged being a member of Nexus. John said any enemy of Nexus is now an enemy of his. John said as for his fans, he hopes they stand by him because the fact of the matter is they’re either Nexus or against us. Wade said that wasn’t so difficult and in time it’s going to get a lot easier. Wade said the first order of business is that tonight he’ll be having a tag match. Wade said Mark Henry and Evan Bourne want revenge so John is going to help them teach them a lesson. Wade said John could choose his own tag partner. John chose Michael Tarver. Wade said there is no time like the present.
TAG TEAM MATCH
Mark Henry & Evan Bourne defeated The Nexus (Michael Tarver & John Cena): John and Evan started. John shook Evan’s hand and Michael got angry so John tagged him in. Back from commercial Evan and Mark were in control on Tarver. Tarver nearly got the hot tag but John pulled away. Evan ran into a belly to belly suplex but John jumped off the apron and started signing autographs. Mark hit the world’s strongest slam for 3. After the match John said he appreciates Nexus writing a note on his behalf but he’d like to make a statement of his own. John said he plans on doing one thing and one thing only while he’s a member of Nexus; destroying it from within. John said tonight he proves that you can be Nexus and against them. John hit Michael with the microphone. John clotheslined Michael on the outside of the ring and bodyslammed him onto the steel steps. John bodyslammed him onto the steps one more time and threw him into the ring. John speared Tarver in the knee and locked in the STF. Michael Cole received an email from the GM saying the terms of the stipulation for John’s match with Wade stated that if he lost he must join The Nexus. Michael said Nexus is clearly a group that takes direction from Wade Barrett, and thus as a member John must also take direction from Wade Barrett. Michael said if John doesn’t, as much as he would hate to do it, he would have no alternative but to terminate John’s WWE contract. Michael said no one man despite his popularity is bigger than the WWE. John got really depressed again.
Natalya Neidhart defeated Alicia Fox: Natalya completely dominated Alicia and made her tap out to the sharp shooter in like 40 seconds.
Johnny Knoxville & Melina Perez & Gail Kim + Zack Ryder: Johnny was telling the girls about his movie when Zack Ryder walked in. Johnny asked Zack for a high five and this giant hand knocked him over.
Josh Mathews & John Cena + Wade Barrett & Michael McGillicutty & Husky Harris: Josh asked John what he was going to do. John said he didn’t know because this is all he has. John said he can’t not be in the WWE. John randomly dashed to The Nexus locker room super fast. Michael McGillicutty and Husky were in there with Wade. Wade said he saw what John did to Michael and they had a lot to talk about.
NON (WWE UNITED STATES) TITLE MATCH
WWE United States champion Daniel Bryan defeated Sheamus by DQ: Sheamus started knee dropping the crap out of Daniel Bryan until the ref disqualified him. Sheamus lifted up Daniel and hit the high cross. I don’t know why they couldn’t have used an untalented jobber for this beat down instead of Daniel.
IN THE RING
Michael Cole + Edge + Mike “The Miz” Mizanin & Alex Riley : Michael had the computer set up in the ring and said the GM would be communicating through him. They replayed Edge destroying the computer last week. Michael said the GM wants Edge to come down to the ring and apologize and then the GM will make an announcement about the WWE championship. Edge came down to the ring. Edge said he’s not going to apologize for anything. Edge said he’s on a personal crusade against all things stupid. Edge said there are a lot of things on RAW that are stupid. Edge said the GM is stupid and Michael Cole is the personification of stupid since 1997. Edge said if you think he has attitude now then just wait until he becomes WWE champion. Michael Cole said tonight they’re going to determine the next #1 contender in a 20 man over the top rope battle royal. Michael said the prize for the winner is facing Randy Orton at Bragging Rights. Michael said Edge disrespected him one too many times. Michael said Edge won’t be in the battle royal. Michael said the GM officially traded Edge to SmackDown! Edge said this was one of the greatest nights of his career because he never has to deal with a gutless GM or Michael Cole. Michael got angry and said his Coleminers love him. Michael said now that he’s the official voice of the WWE Edge needs to treat him with some respect. Edge asked if it would be respectful if he speared him into next week. The Miz came out. Miz said Edge will do no such thing. Miz said Michael Cole is a visionary and the one person who realized his awesomeness before anybody else. Miz told Michael to go back to his announce desk. Edge called Miz a wannabe and made fun of his really. Edge said he was using the word awesomeness while Miz was in high school popping zits. Miz said they’re nothing alike. Edge said Miz is right because he’s been WWE champion. Edge said he’s had a wedding, been divorced, and had a live celebration. Edge said he hasn’t even seen Miz successfully talk to a woman except Alex Riley. Alex said because he’s the one with the long hair and pouty lips. Alex said Miz is the future of the WWE and Edge shouldn’t talk to him like that. Edge said it’s strange that Alex noticed his lips and said Miz is awesome at tapping to Daniel Bryan. Miz said if Edge is trying to anger him it’s not going to work because in 3 weeks he’ll either be in a WWE championship match or leading his team into decimating SmackDown! Miz told Edge to go to SmackDown and tell all his little buddies that he is the Miz and he’s awesome. Edge said Miz is the WWE’s biggest jackass and threw Miz into the podium. Edge kicked the computer out of the ring and hit Alex Riley with a spear. Miz snuck up behind Edge and hit the skull crushing finale.
The Nexus (Wade Barrett & John Cena & David Otunga): Wade said John might think he’s clever for what he did to Michael but Wade said John actually did him a favor because he wanted Michael gone. Wade said he needs John to help him in tonight’s battle royal. John asked what happens if he wins. Wade said he won’t win. David said if Wade somehow gets eliminated then John will help one of them win. Wade got mad and said if he didn’t win John would be fired.

IN THE RING
Johnny Knoxville + Ted DiBiase Jr. & Maryse Ouellet + Goldust: Johnny said it was great to be back on RAW and asked them to go see his stupid R rated movie. Johnny started to get out of there but Ted and Maryse showed up. Johnny said no hard feelings. Ted asked Johnny if he knew what he was capable of doing. Johnny said he was just trying to make Maryse laugh like the way she laughed when she saw Ted with no pants on. Ted said Johnny has jokes. Ted said he needed to give Johnny a hand and smacked him before locking in the cobra clutch. A message came on the screen that said “You are mine”. Suddenly Goldust was in the ring and he hit Ted with a vertical suplex. Goldust said he didn’t want Ted. Goldust went over to Maryse and said he didn’t want her either. Goldust grabbed the million dollar title and said he wanted it.
John Cena & David Otunga: David said he knows John is upset but wanted to tell him that Nexus isn’t all bad. David said Wade can be a bit demanding but deep down he knows they can make this work. David said this isn’t the end and he’s there for John if he ever needs to talk.
