We are live on tape from Mexico City, Mexico and your announcers are Michael ‘Why is everyone offering me water’ Cole and Jerry ‘Mantiquilla’ Lawler.
John Laurinaitis is introduced and he makes his way to the ring and Mexico does not love the General Manager. We have a video package.
John throws out a que pasa and then he introduces himself to the people of Mexico City. He says that tonight marks the return of Rey Mysterio. Rey returns to San Diego to meet with his doctor about rehab. Laurinaitis says that the Mexican people don’t have a sense of humor. John says that he will do whatever it takes to maintain honor and integrity to Raw. He says that he will not let the board down and he will not let the fans down.
John says that he will make some mistakes and he asks for their understanding. John says that he made a mistake last week by firing Jim Ross. John says that he received a number of tweets about it. As a result, he listened to the fans and he is going to do this for the people. He is bringing back Good Ole JR.
John wants Jim to come to the ring for a public apology. John hugs Jim and Kelly Kelly has a warm feeling someplace because she started the hugging. John says that he shouldn’t have fired Jim Ross like that last week. He says that it was unprofessional so he wanted to bring him back. Jim will not be on commentary tonight.
John says that he has something to show Jim. We see Michael Cole, Alberto Del Rio, and Ricardo Rodriguez and Cole serenades JR.
We see Cole laughing at what he did. John says that he doesn’t know what the issue is between Jim and Cole, but everything should be settled tonight on Raw. The main event will be Michael Cole and Alberto Del Rio versus Jim Ross and John Cena.
John gets back on the phone and he shuns Ricardo away as he introduces Alberto Del Rio. Alberto says that teaming with Michael Cole against John Cena and Jim Ross is crazy. Ricardo agrees. John says that Alberto has to understand him. The winner of the match gets to pick the stipulation for the match on Sunday at Vengeance.
John Cena and Jim Ross are in the locker room. Ross says that he doesn’t want to screw things up for Cena on Sunday. Cena says that JR is the greatest voice in WWE history. Cena tells JR that he can just stand in the corner while Cena takes care of Del Rio. Ross says that he would like to get his hands on the sniveling rodent-like, smarmy son of a bitch. Cena says that he will do that for Ross.
Michael Cole takes his chance to address Jim Ross’ comments. He says that he will take JR and his egotistical body and put him out of his miseries. He says that he might even do something to John Cena. Cole mentions that his wife is Mexican so they have to cheer for him.
We go to commercial.
We are back and Josh Mathews joins Jerry Lawler at the announce table. We see that Smackdown is now the second longest episodic television and Raw will hit 1,000 shows in less than a year.
