The refs helped Rey to his feet and backstage. Cole said that was an amazing act of audacity there. Miz said "do you know who I'm facing at Summerslam? Me either." He went on to say he should be the PPV's focus.

They showed John Laurenitis and Triple H reviewing the WWE Championship match contract for the Summerslam match between Cena and Punk to sign off on.

Next week, Rey Mysterio will get a rematch for the WWE Championship on Raw against whoever the champ is after Summerslam.

John Cena won the WWE poll 54% to 46% over CM Punk as to who will leave Summerslam as champion.

They had a backstage video from World Heavyweight Champion, Christian. Christian said it would be smart for COO Triple H to show up live on Smackdown Friday night to hear his big announcement in person.

Triple H was in the ring with John Laurenitis for the WWE Championship contract signing. CM Punk arrived out first, then John Cena.

Triple H tried to start talking about the signing. CM Punk asked about how this was going to be entertaining, because these things always end in a physical calamity. Punk said it's time to roll a clip to let Cena know exactly how he feels about him. The clip was from The Rock on Facebook from the set of a movie. Rock talked about Cena's red wristbands making him look like a transvestite Wonder Woman. Rock said Cena gets booed in his own homestown of Boston because Rock represents men and men smell phony fakes from a mile away. Punk said that Rock doesn't realize while he's calling Cena a phony, he's just as big a phony. Punk said he doesn't want Rock talking in a silly voice at him so he'll just sign the contract.

Cena talked about how Punk has issues with him and that's fine. Cena said he knows he can't win over the fans who hate him, but he only cares about the fans who wears their colors proud. Cena told Punk if he wants phony but to look in the mirror. Triple H broke in saying Cena does have a good point. Punk brought up all the recent WWE firings and asked Laurenitis and Triple H if they fired any of those stars face-to-face. Punk said this isn't about them though, it's about Punk and Cena and the WWE Championship. Punk brought up how he won the ECW champ for his first time, but Cena came up to him next day, patted him on the back and said nice work kid, I almost gave up on you.

Punk said 7 years ago, Cena walked into Los Angeles and won his first WWE championship, but this Sunday he'll walk out with nothing. Cena commended Punk on his speech, but said he needs this match more than him on Sunday. Cena said everyone's watching him now and if he loses he'll just be a loudmouth one-hit wonder. Punk responded back that he'd rather that than a phony.

Cena said they've done enough talking and maybe now it's time for some of that entertainment Punk hinted at earlier. Cena stood up, so Punk got up too, and they both tossed their championship belts to the side. Cena threw the table to the side. They got in each other's face, so Laurenitis stepped in between them. He backed Punk up to the ropes, then backed Cena up. Punk rushed at Cena and tried for a roundhouse kick but caught Laurenitis in the head instead, causing Laurenitis to hit the mat. Triple H went over to get in Punk's face. Cena tried to rush at Punk with a fist, but hit Triple H by accident too. Punk rolled out of the ring, and HHH shoved Cena. Raw ended with Punk holding his head on the ramp and Cena/HHH in the ring.
