December 3rd 2012 wrote:
The Shield were shown watching from a Skybox in the crowd.
Michael Cole said there were rumours circulating that Vince McMahon is in Greensboro tonight for RAW.
Match 1: Team Hell No defeated the Prime Time Players when Bryan pinned Darren Young with a reversed roll-up. Following the match, The Sheld jumped the barricade and attacked Bryan and Kane, before once again exiting through the crowd.
Sheamus and John Cena were backstage. Sheamus made a load of obscure references to the Eurovision Song contest and Father Ted.
Match 2: AJ Lee pinned Tamina Snuka with a roll-up.
CM Punk and Paul Heyman, clutching the new WWE Encyclopaedia, came out and cut a promo. Heyman said it didn't contain enough information on Punk. This segment went on for strawberry floating ages. Usual stuff. Buried the fans, buried the crowd, buried RAW itself, longest reigning champion of the modern era...blah, blah, blah.
Miz interrupted and offered Punk go on a lie-detector test later in the night. Called Paul Heyman a human walrus. Crowd chanted "walrus". CM Punk accepted.
John Cena told Stu the cameraman to get rid of his moustache/beard as November was over.
Match 3: John Cena and Sheamus defeated Dolph Ziggler and Big Show when Sheamus hit White Noise on Show and John Cena pinned Dolph Ziggler again following an AA.
They re-aired parts of the CM Punk promo from earlier in the night. And by earlier I mean less than half an hour. Yes, really.
Damien Sandow came out & cut a promo looking for an apprentice. He picked out some guy from the crowd and asked him 3 questions. Just like on SmackDown, the 'fan' got the first two easy questions right but flunked the last. Sandow ordered him to leave the ring and the United States. Santino interrupted. 'Comedy'.
Match 4: Damien Sandow pinned Santino.
Dolph Ziggler and Vickie Guerrero were backstage. Vickie made Ziggler vs. Cena for WWE: TLC. Brad Maddox was in her office as we went to commercial...
Back from commercial and Vickie told Maddox that if he could win a match tonight then he could have a WWE Contract. Deja-vu...
Match 5: Alberto Del Rio defeated Sin Cara with the arm breaker in a 13 minute match.
Vickie Guerrero came out and introduced Vince McMahon. It resulted in Ziggler and Cena being made into a Money in the Bank ladder match at WWE: TLC. Vickie, with much cajoling from Vince, also announced that, if it were proved Punk was lying later tonight, that Heyman would have to face Ryback next week.
Match 6: Randy Orton beat Brad Maddox in a quick match with the RKO. Afterwards, The Shield ran in and beat down Orton.
Stuff backstage with Ziggler and Vickie. Paul Heyman and Vickie, which involved them both staring at each other for an awkward amount of time. And John Cena, which involved some novelty John Cena dickie bow ties.
Teddy Long came out and changed a tag team match into a Fatal Four Way. This has to be some sort of in-joke. #RAWactive match, so fans had to vote for what title was on the line, US or Intercontinental. Not that it matters, as WWE will just do what it says in the script anyway.
Twitter users apparently chose United States Championship.
Main Event: Antonio Cesaro retained the US Championship against Kofi Kingston, Wade Barrett & R-Truth when Cesaro pinned Kingston with The Neutraliser.
They announced Randy Orton would face Wade Barrett on SmackDown. What do we do to deserve all these new matches....
They partially re-aired the Vince McMahon segment from earlier in the night.
Miz strawberry floated up where the Sheriff conducting the lie detector is from. Members of the crowd shouted that Miz sucked.
CM Punk (with Paul Heyman) came out for his lie-detector test on Miz TV. It's now 3:56 in the morning.
In a piss poor segment, the lie detector ended in a No-Contest when The Shield ran in and destroyed The Miz. Kane, Daniel Bryan and Ryback ran down and sent The Shield packing. While Punk was alone & celebrating in the ring, Ryback sneaked up on him and gave him Shell Shock. Ryback then hit Punk with a ladder and steel chair, before finally powerbombing him through a table.

IMPACT WRESTLING LIVE! opened with a recap video.
The arena was strewn with ladders, tables and chairs set up around ringside & the entrance.
Dolph Ziggler cut a promo atop a ladder in the ring saying he was going to defeat John Cena at TLC on Sunday. Sheamus interrupted & said he didn't need to worry about cashing in against Big Show as he was going to beat him at the PPV. Big Show then came out & shouted "Blah blah blah blah blah," calling Sheamus and Ziggler both boring and delusional. Sheamus asked Show where his Christmas spirit was, botched a joke about "roasted chestnuts" & then said as he couldn't have contact with Big Show, he would with someone else tonight. Sheamus then tipped over the ladder, crotching Ziggler on the top rope. This looked brutal.
Vince McMahon was shown backstage heading towards the ring.
Big Show vs John Cena was announced for later.
Kofi Kingston and Antonio Cesaro at the announce table for commentary.
Vince McMahon, wearing a truly horrendous suit, introduced Vickie Guerrero. Followed the same format of recent weeks, where Vince makes 'suggestions' to Vickie. Vince bigged up the Cena/Show match. Also announced was Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler and AJ Lee vs. Vickie Guerrero.
Match 1: In a quick match, R-Truth defeated Wade Barrett (who didn't get an entrance) with a roll up. Kofi Kingston then hit a flying crossbody off the top rope on Barrett.
There's RAW IS WAR, nWo and Troll Face signs in the crowd.
AJ Lee was shown excitedly bouncing down the hallway backstage. She stopped Aksana & Kaitlyn along the way to the men's locker room & John Cena. She then hugged him while he was in mid-conversation. Cena tried to act all nice. Cena said they can talk somewhere else. As AJ left, Cena mouthed an apology to everyone else in the room before leaving to find AJ again.
Match 2: Cody Rhodes (sporting an awful moustache) and Damien Sandow defeated The Prime Time Players, Primo and Epico & Jimmy and Jay Uso in a 4-Way Number 1 Contenders Elimination Tag Team match for TLC. Only Rhodes Scholars got an entrance. Rhodes got the pin on an Uso following Cross Rhodes. Highlight of the match was the crowd breaking out into a "Cody's moustache" chant.
Cole and Lawler announced that next week would be the Slammy Awards. Voting is now through the WWE App.
Match 3: Eve pinned Alicia Fox with a Neckbreaker.
CM Punk, on crutches, and Paul Heyman were shown heading towards the ring.
CM Punk and Paul Heyman came out to cut a promo on the ramp. Talked about his surgery, that it was genuine, and not a ploy as some fans had speculated to get out of a match with Ryback. They took some shots at The Rock. Heyman said that, unlike Punk, Rock has a stunt double. Punk said he would be at WWE: TLC on Sunday to watch The Shield do to Ryback what Ryback did to him.
They recapped aspects of the McMahon/Vickie segment from earlier.
Match 4: In what was a great match, Sheamus defeated Dolph Ziggler via Disqualification when Ziggler hit Sheamus with a steel chair on the outside.
In an amusing segment, Vickie Guerrero was warming up backstage when Hornswoggle and Khali walked in. Vickie said she was tight. Vickie bent over and Hornswoggle and Khali stretched her out. Vince McMahon then walked in. Vince said that he "thought this was supposed to be a family show" before walking off in disgust. This was another take-off of the Trish Stratus/HHH/Stephanie McMahon skit, which they then spoofed on the 1000th episode.
Match 5: Alberto Del Rio beat Zack Ryder with the Cross Arm Breaker in a match that went longer than it had any right to.
AJ Lee and Vickie Guerrero came out. There was no referee in the ring.
As it turned out, Brad Maddox came out as the assigned referee.
Match 6: Vickie Guerrero rolled up AJ Lee in an extremely quick match. AJ Lee got the pin on Vickie during the bout, but Maddox refused to count.
AJ Lee threw a massive tantrum in the ring, chucked some chairs and ladders around ringside, tore the hood off the announce table and slapped Justin Roberts. She then stormed off to the back.
AJ Lee was still having an orgasm backstage, tearing up equipment. Cena turned up to calm her down.
Antonio Cesaro came out and cut a promo slagging off New Jersey & R-Truth.
Match 7: Antonio Cesaro pinned Kofi Kingston with the Neutraliser.
Rhodes Scholars were guests on MizTV. Sandow said the only thing worse than MizTV was the people who watch it. Crowd chanted "Cody's moustache" again. Rhodes could barely keep a straight face. Miz said he had to 'Moustache Cody a question'. Sandow said Miz wasn't a very good host. Lots of back and forth. Rhodes said Miz was dressed like Colonel Sanders. In the end Rhodes and Sandow walked off. Segment just ended.
John Cena was making his way to the ring, but bumped into AJ along the way. AJ Lee said she wants to be out there with Cena in his match, but Cena supposedly convinced her otherwise.
Dolph Ziggler came out for commentary.
Main Event: John Cena and Big Show ended in Disqualification when The Shield ran in and attacked John Cena. Team Hell No, then Sheamus and lastly Ryback ran in to make the save. John Cena put Big Show through a table set up in the corner. Everyone brawled to close the show.
Michael Cole, JBL and Jerry Lawler, all suited and booted, were on commentary.
Match 1: Show kicked off with Rey Mysterio vs. Damien Sandow. Mysterio won with the 619 and splash off the top.
In the first Slammy Award of the evening, Booker T came out to announce Most Shocking Moment of the Year. Booker was then interrupted by the return of the Boogey Man.
Following commercial, Boogey Man had vanished. The winner was about to be announced when Brad Maddox came out expecting to win, but the award went to Kofi Kingston instead for his hand-stand in the Royal Rumble match.
Match 2: In a non-title match, Kaitlyn defeated Eve with the Gutbuster.
The New Age Outlaws came out to award the second Slammy, Comeback of the Year. Billy Gunn read the nominees off his hand in a jokey manner. Jerry Lawler won for his heart attack. Lawler ran to the stage, and then joked that he shouldn't run otherwise he might give himself another heart attack. He thanked the fans in a short speech.
Match 3: In a non-title match, Kofi Kingston beat Tensai with the Trouble in Paradise in a very quick match that went about 1 minute. Crowd chanted "Albert". Following the match, Wade Barrett attacked Kingston on the top rope, ran him into the ring post on the outside and then gave him the Bullhammer.
The commentators once again told us how to download the WWE App on iPhone and Android.
Vickie Guerrero, accompanied with the usual boos, came out to announce The Kiss of the Year Slammy. All the nominees were of AJ Lee kissing everyone under the sun.
Sky 1 announced NCIS LA is back on the 6th January.
Vickie said that before she announced the award, she wanted to make clear that she'd never be nominated for this award as she'd never abuse her position like AJ. Winner was AJ Lee and John Cena. AJ came out to accept the award. Vickie said AJ needed to explain her actions at TLC. AJ said she didn't owe anyone anything, and that she no longer cared what people thought of her. Dolph Ziggler came out dressed like he'd stepped straight off the set of Grease to stop a potential altercation between the two. AJ then jumped up and wrapped her legs around Ziggler before proceeding to kiss him for ages. Strange segment, that made Vickie look like she'd been correct all along, and AJ a slag.
Great Khali came out with Natalya.
I can't believe this is still Hour 1.
Match 4: Khali pinned Otunga in a garbage outing. This went longer than the previous match.
Khali danced with Natalya.
Completely out of nowhere, and to almost zero reaction, Ric Flair's voice was heard saying "Whooooo! Superstar of the year. Whoooooo!" over the PA system.
Ric Flair returned, to a surprisingly modest pop from the crowd, and announced Superstar of the Year. John Cena won.
John Cena came out, and got booed out of the building, though there were a smattering of cheers. Probably about 70/30 against. Most antagonistic response to Cena in quite some time. Cena thanked the fans and the loyalty of the WWE Universe. Cena said Ric Flair deserved the award more than him &, despite the fan voting, gave the award to Flair. Cena left. CM Punk and Paul Heyman then interrupted. Punk said this was ridiculous on multiple levels. He said this was possibly the worst year of Cena's life. A clearly extremely motivated Punk cut one hell of a promo here. Flair told Punk he's been watching, and that the reason Punk can't walk is because he has too much baggage (Paul Heyman). Before Punk could get in there, Flair made a joke about his 4 ex wives. Punk then said he could beat up Flair even with just the one leg. Ric Flair said he and Punk should go right now on RAW. Flair took his jacket off and made his way to the ring. As Punk followed hobbling on crutches, & Flair strutted about in the ring, the announcers speculated whether we were going to get Punk and Flair...next! Hell of a crash to break this was.
Back from commercial, CM Punk hit Flair with a crutch to the gut and then broke it over his back. As Punk was about to nail Ric again, Flair thumbed him in the eyes, and then put the Figure Four on Paul Heyman, as the crowd went nuts. Continuing to channel the very best of WCW Nitro, Flair then got on the microphone again and said that he'd told Vince McMahon that if he was going to die, he'd want it to be in the ring or with a woman from Philadelphia. Flair took a moment to tell Jerry Lawler he loved him and that they'd both be around forever. As Flair was cutting his promo, The
nWoShield's music hit and they made their way out through the crowd. This has been the best 20 minutes of RAW in months and months.
Back from break, Team Hell No, Flair and The Shield were brawling in and around the ring. As The Shield were about to put Flair through the announce table, Ryback's music hit and he came down and made the save. The Shield were pasted by Ryback, and then promptly made their escape back through the crowd. Team Hell No and Ryback lifted Flair above their shoulders & celebrated in the ring.
Flair and Team Hell No were backstage celebrating. They all had a "Woooo", No!", "Yes!"-off. Ron Simmons arrived and said "Damn".
Brodus Clay and the Funkettes were dancing in the ring.
Match 5: Brodus Clay pinned JTG in a quick bout.
Some kids got in the ring and danced.
Santino and Tensai, who was wearing something utterly ridiculous on his head, came out to announce LOL Moment of the Year. Santino & the announcers fake laughed. Santino called him Albert. Santino said Tensai in Japanese meant "Fat Albert". The Rock won. Santino said The Rock couldn't be there in person. Crowd booed. Santino accepted the award on his behalf. Daniel Bryan and Kane came out. Bryan shouted that this should have been his Slammy. Kane carried him out as Bryan continued to rant and rave.
Match 6: Code Rhodes & Sin Cara were already in the ring. Goofy lights are also back again. Rhodes won with Cross Rhodes.
Layla and Zack Ryder were out to announce the Trending Now #Hashtag of the Year Award. Crowd shat all over this.
Back from commercial, Layla announced #FeedMeMore as the winner. Ryder said he'd give the award to Ryback backstage. Whoo. Whoo. Whoo.
Big Show came out hobbling and clutching the "Big Show chair" from last night. Show, smiling, said he wasn't surprised the crowd were booing. He said the crowd lets him down every time he turns around. He said the crowd couldn't handle that he was the most dominant superstar. Crowd chanted "BORING". Show said the crowd would not chant boring at him. Sheamus interrupted. Sheamus said he had no regrets about the match. A clearly restless crowd chanted "What". Sheamus said he wanted to shake Show's hand. Some parts of the crowd chanted "Sheamus sucks". They shook hands. Big Show called him a potato eating Irishman. Sheamus than tackled Show and grabbed the Big Show chair and wore him out. Sheamus hit the Brogue Kick.
Dolph Ziggler ran down and was about to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase. Before he could, Cena ran down and attacked Ziggler, totally destroying him. Crowd were livid at that arsehole Cena.
Dolph Ziggler was ranting at Vickie backstage. Ziggler said their relationship was over. Dolph said her jealously was getting old and plain ugly, just like her. Vickie made the main event for later: Vickie and John Cena vs Dolph Ziggler and AJ Lee. Yes, really.
Match 7: Alberto Del Rio, The Miz and Tommy Dreamer defeated 3 Man Band. Crowd chanted "ECW" and "Tommy Dreamer". Dreamer hit the DDT on Slater for the win.
During the match, Jerry Lawler said that he used to be in a band called T Mobile but they kept breaking up.
Lawler said he recorded a Country song called My Old Bag Left Me Because I Got So Hefty.
Sheamus came out to announce the winner of the Newcomer Slammy. Ryback came out and accepted his second award of the night. He quoted Owen Hart by saying "Enough is enough and it is time for a change". Ryback said he was that change.
Cesaro came out and said just like US voting, this vote was rigged.
Match 8: Ryback defeated Antonio Cesaro via Count Out when Cesaro simply walked out. Crowd chanted "Goldberg".
Gene Okerlund, Ricky Steamboat and Jim Ross introduced the final Slammy Award: Match of the Year. Undertaker vs Triple H. Triple Rooooooooooooooooode accepted. Crowd chanted "We want 'Taker" & "Thank you Hunter". Triple H said we haven't seen the last of The Undertaker.
The Shield were shown assaulting Tommy Dreamer and then Ricardo backstage.
AJ Lee came out and demanded the stage hands set up a ladder in the ring.
AJ, looking Ronsealed, cut a promo atop the ladder. Vickie interrupted. I have no idea who we're supposed to be cheering. It's now 4am and the match hasn't even started.
Main Event: Dolph Ziggler and AJ Lee vs. John Cena and Vickie Guerrero ended in Disqualification when AJ Lee, who had walked out on the match after being attacked by Vickie, came back out with Big E Langston, who beat up John Cena. Langston stood tall over Cena, as Ziggler looked on confused.
