Tonight, Jim Ross announced a 12-man tag match featuring the team of Sheamus, Punk, cena, Mason Ryan and Air Boom vs. Swagger, Ziggler, Christian, Rhodes, Otunga and Del Rio. Randy Orton came out to start off the show.

Randy Orton vs. Drew McIntyre

JR and Cole talked about what happened in the Orton vs Henry HIAC match last night right before the bell sounded for this one. The two competitors grappled a bit, with the ref pulling them apart in the corner.

Cole said the exclusive footage of what happened at the end of last night's PPV will be shown tonight. Orton knocked Drew out of the ring and went out to toss him into a barrier. He took Drew and ran him across to toss into the other barrier.

The close saw Orton gain momentum and explode for clothesline after clothesline, then a scoop slam. He got up and put Drew through the ropes, then onto the middle rope for the DDT. From there, he got that look in his eyes, dropped to the mat and pounded it. Once Drew was back up, The Viper struck with a quick RKO for the win.

Post-match, World Champion Mark Henry emerged from backstage as Orton was celebrating. Henry stopped at the bottom of the ramp and held up his championship belt for Orton to see. Orton went out and started to punch on him, with Henry fighting back. Security rushed out to ringside to restrain them. John Laurinaitis cam down to try to get order, but Henry broke free. About 10 guys pulled Henry back, then Orton jumped on him. Finally the scurity pulled Orton away. He pretended to be done, then rushed and shoved Henry over the barricade onto the concrete pavement.

Winner: Randy Orton wins via pinfall over Drew McIntyre.

They introduced a video promo about Henry and all of the damage he's done. His victims so far have included Big Show and Kane. Cole said on this Friday's Smackdown, Big Show returns.

John Morrison vs. Mark Henry

Morrison competed in a non-title match, less than 24 hours after he got to go after Rhodes' IC title last night. Henry batted Morrison down after an early attack, then tossed JMo to the corner.

Winner: Mark Henry wins via pinfall over John Morrison.

Backstage, John Laurinaitis met with various WWE superstars including Ziggler, Swagger, Vickie, Rhodes, Christian, Del Rio and David Otunga. Laurinaitis said to calm down and let him see what he can discuss with Triple H. Vickie said they're going to go air their grievances themselves in the ring. They all walked out and Laurinaitis pulled his cell phone out to make a text.

Ziggler, Swagger, Vickie, Rhodes, Christian and David Otunga were in the ring when Raw returned as Christian's music played. Del Rio's music hit and Justin Roberts introduced the new WWE Champion as he showed off the gold on the ramp. Del Rio got in the ring and showed off his championship on the corner.

Everyone took turns speaking. Christian, Ziggler, Rhodes and Vickie. Otunga got on the mic to talk about his legal expertise, saying they can ban together collectively and take legal action. Suddenly, Triple H's music hit and he arrived out onto the ramp. The COO asked what happened to the company when men used to fight if they were attacked, instead of standing there and whining or crying like kids. HHH says he doesn't care about Truth and Miz's lawsuit, or their lawsuit. He said he cares about later when the guys in the ring will go back and have their match. He says no whining or crying later, he expects they'll fight like men.

WWE Slam of the Week showed still shot images from last night's Divas Championship match. Beth got Kelly in a submission hold. Natalya was ringside and used a mic to clock Kelly on the head. Beth followed with the Glam Slam to win the Divas title.

Eve Torres & Kelly Kelly vs. Natalya & Beth Phoenix

Early on, things spilled to the outside where Kelly attacked Beth unmercifully, smashing her against the commentators table repeatedly. Kelly was screaming and wailing on her viciously. The ref warned them to stop and finally called for the bell. Eve finally was able to help the ref pull Kelly away, but she kept screaming.

Winner: No contest as Kelly ignored ref's warnings.

Triple H was on his cellphone when John Laurinaitis came in to interrupt. John apologized for last night's problems with handling Miz and Truth. He said he acknowledges that, but thinks HHH owes an apology to him. Laurinaitis said HHH knocked him down last night. He said he's a man and can take it, but asked Triple H to get a vote of confidence tonight. HHH asked what that is. John said to get all the superstars' opinions on how he's doing as a COO. HHH grabbed Laurinaitis by the tie and threatened him saying he's more afraid that the guy working closest to him is undermining his work. He told Laurinaitis to get everyone to the ring later, and make sure he's there too.

Raw returned with a clip from the "Fast Five" movie starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Smackdown's Jinder Mahal was in the ring after that to make an in-ring promo. Mahal tried to speak in Hindi, but Santino Marella's music hit to interrupt him. Cole said Santino's back after a car accident gave him a shoulder injury. Mahal and Santino went back and forth with various languages and jibberish before the match bell sounded.

Winner: Santino Marella wins via pinfall over Jinder Mahal.

Raw returned with a video promo showcasing the brutal nature of Brodus Clay as he won various squash matches.

The commentators discussed the hard-to-believe footage coming up from last night's PPV. They showed the finale of Hell in a Cell when the cage was lowering and Cena went in to attack Del Rio. Two hooded guys also got in there, and it was Miz and Truth. They both attacked Cena, Del Rio and Punk with steel pipes. They also attacked ref's.

They said they have power of attorneys and have filed a wrongful termination against WWE and Triple H. They've also pressed assault charges against Triple H for last night. They apologized to the WWE Universe.

Both Sin Caras were ringside. Finally after several moments, COO Triple H came to the ring. Triple H said they all get a chance to tell him how they feel he's doing as COO. He admitted the job's a lot more difficult than he thought it'd be, and he was given the job, it's not one he asked for.

HHH said Miz and Truth aren't like him and he's mad because if they're gonna do the crime, they need to do the time and accept the punishment. HHH admitted he loves seeing people beat the hell out of each other. HHH said at the end of the day, they really all work for the WWE Universe. He said he doesn't work for the wrestlers or divas, he works for all of the fans. HHH said he's curious to hear their opinions now.

Wade Barrett piped up saying he was selected by his comrades to air their grievances, making it an unfair working environment. Barrett said they shouldn't be subjected to being attacked in spots like the parking lot because HHH can't control his talent.

He said Wade's upset that he isn't causing all the chaos.

Mike Chioda of the referees spoke up about how superstars are attacking them and Triple H isn't doing anything about it. Beth Phoenix piped up that they're girls and they're worried something could happen.

Jerry Lawler got in the ring to say he's worried the show is spiraling out of control. Lawler said it's becoming a hostile or hazardous environment. Lawler said he doesn't think it's Triple H's fault. Lawler said he thinks there's someone behind the strings trying to sabotage HHH as COO.

Lawler said unfortunately this is happening because of him. Christian piped up to say on behalf of his colleagues he has no confidence. Mike Chioda agreed for the refs, and Beth agreed for the divas. Lawler spoke up saying "No confidence too." Lawler said right now he's reluctantly walking out because action speak louder than words. Lawler went up the ramp and then all the others followed as Triple H watched from in the ring.
