IN THE RING John Cena + Mike “The Miz” Mizanin w/Alex Riley + Wade Barrett: John thanked the crowd for cheering. John said he had to know that the fans still believe. John said last week he heard the WWE universe chant to never give up for the first time. John said he took a chance to end Nexus but lost. John said if he doesn’t listen to Wade he’ll be fired. John said he’s been there a long time. John said this isn’t about championships or money, this is what he lives for and it’s all he has. John said he might have to do some bad things. The Miz came out. Miz said he’s going to be the captain of team RAW. Miz said unlike Cena he doesn’t assemble his teams by judging them personally. Miz offered John a spot on his team.

John said he’d be the captain but Miz said he called it first. Wade Barrett came out. Wade said all he cared about was Nexus and the WWE title. Wade said he needed John’s attention on being in his corner at Bragging Rights. John said he could do both. Wade asked John if he was disobeying. Alex said John should listen to Wade because Miz might cash in his contract and beat Wade Barrett for the title. Miz thanked Alex for ruining the surprise but said he was right.

Miz said he would win and might even cash in his contract. Miz said Wade can do nothing about it. Wade attacked Miz so Alex and Miz jumped him. John watched and did nothing until Wade told him to help. John hit Alex with the AA.
