Raw is live tonight from Portland, Oregon!
Jerry Lawler and Josh Matthews start off the show. Jerry explains that Michael Cole has not shown up for the show. Instead, Good Ol' J.R. makes his way down to the ring to join the other two on commentary.
John Cena comes out and starts a three to four-minute segment about his victory last night. Before he can continue, Alberto Del Rio comes down to the ring demanding a title shot. He explains that if Cena were a real champion, he would give someone with Del Rio's ability a shot.
The Miz then makes his way down to the ring. He tries to make himself seem strong and deserving of another title shot. The three argue for a few seconds until the Raw GM chimes in. The GM states that both Del Rio and The Miz will have matches tonight; whoever wins is the No. 1 contender for Cena's WWE Championship. If they both win, then they are both contenders.
The GM also states that Cena will face an opponent later on in the show, but it is not yet revealed as to who it is.
The three men seem confident as we head backstage where Scott Stanford is standing by with C.M. Punk. Punk gives a quick promo explaining his loss last night and we are turned back to our ringside trio for our first match.
