John Cena makes his way to the ring and grabs a microphone and thanks Jericho and Big Show for last week because this is exactly what he needed to prepare for the Money In The Bank match. He knows that no matter what happens, he has to be ready. At Money In The Bank Cena vows to get the contract and cash it in.
Out comes Daniel Bryan with the Yes! chants. He calls Cena irrelevant and says that he will beat Punk and become the new WWE Champ, so if Cena wins the contract, he’s going to go down as the first person in history to lose an MITB cash-in. Cena says he can think of at least one person who disagrees with him.
Out comes CM Punk and says he can think of more than one person who disagrees with Bryan. Does Punk disagree with Bryan ? Yes! Does John Cena disagree with Bryan? Yes. Does tha audience disagree with Bryan? Yes. Punk starts dancing around and mocking Bryan, who gets frustrated and asks for one original thought as opposed to the constant stealing of his catchphrase. Punk says an original thought is that his ex is going to 3-count him at MITB and then if Cena wins the contract, it’s down to them again.
Out comes Chris Jericho and tells Bryan not to complain about other people stealing his catchphrases because it happens to him all the time. He mockingly calls Punk Mr Best In The World and Punk calls him Bon Jovi. He then tells Bryan to come up with something original before using all the catchphrases from his earlier Y2J days. He says he invented the MITB match and he’s going to win. He dares anyone from the locker room to come out and say otherwise. Out comes Kane, corners Jericho, grabs his mic and says otherwise. He then gets interrupted by Big Show and eventually a huge brawl breaks out between all 6, with Show the only one left on his feet.

Alberto and Ricardo walk into Teddy’s office. Del Rio wants the title shot he never got as reward for helping Team Johnny get the win at Wrestlemania (oh, the irony!!!).

Daniel Bryan finds AJ backstage, tries to apologize for everything and hands her a rose. She seems touched at first but then says she’s sure it has nothing to do with her spot in Bryan’s match at MITB. She says he never cared about her, bites half of the rose off and hands him back the stem.
We see a recap of the drama between Triple H, Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar. We then see Paul Heyman on sattelite. He says Lesnar has made a decision and he will deliver it to Triple H’s face at the 1000th episode. He says he knows why Triple H wants this match – he wants to go out in a blaze of glory to end his career. Heyman says that if Lesnar accepts, Summerslam is going to be a mercy killing.

She tells her to leave the mind games to proffesionals and go do what little girls do best – cry in a corner. AJ tells her she’d do anything to get attention and asks her who she’s going to suck up to now that Johnny’s not around. She’s going to show everyone how to grab attention
