Monday Night RAW starts out with Vickie and Dolph in the ring, Vickie livid after what happened to Dolph on Friday. She wants Cesaro's head on a platter and McIntyre for a side dish—but she's joined quickly by Sheamus, who wants a crack at McIntyre.
Sheamus and Ziggler are arguing for a few minutes about who's getting revenge first, but they get cut off as CM Punk makes his way to the ring. He basically says they can handle this Friday, but since it's Monday he's WWE champion and he's first in line—and Zack Ryder is first on his list.
This is followed by an interruption from Cena, who says that Zack was his friend...and that he should get first dibs on beating Ryder's face in.
Everyone bickers for a few minutes, but they all fall victim to an assault by Mason Ryan, Ezekiel Jackson, and The Great Khali. Basically, they're giving the business to Punk, Cena, Sheamus, and Ziggler, Ziggler getting the worst of it, with a vise grip from Khali, a spear from Ryan and the torture rack from Jackson. Consider him done for awhile, with Vickie out of there.
Jackson, Ryan, and Khali all leave the ring and make it to the stage and out comes...Zack Ryder. He makes his way down to the ring acting as his regular face persona to mock the crowd til he gets to the ring. He grabs a mic and goes on this tirade about how unappreciated he is by the WWE and the crowd.
He goes on to say he put his heart and soul into Z:TLIS and all it got him was a beatdown from Kane and a pitiful US title run, in which he got beat by Jack Swagger (making a special note that he doesn't resent Swagger for it, but saying instead that one of his broskis should have let Johnny Ace know that he couldn't compete.)
He ends his promo by getting in the ring where the champions—Ziggler and Cena—are starting to come to. He says he's gonna show everyone that just because the smirks are behind you (aimed at Ziggler and Punk,) and the machine was behind you (aimed at Sheamus and Cena) doesn't mean you're untouchable.
