-Reminder, I do not rate matches that are under three minutes long…
-Highlights from Raw.
-The show opened with a video of Raw, showing the Shield's involvement, and then focusing on Ryback destroying Punk to close the show. We also saw the "WWE.com" exclusive, showing that Punk had knee surgery and that he was out of the PPV, leaving us with Ryback and Team Hell no vs. The Shield.
Booker T is in the ring with a table set up with two chairs and a contract. This was set up for The Big Show and Sheamus. Booker stated that things had become personal, and were therefore likely to get physical. He has made the decision that they will sign a no contact clause between the two until TLC, effective immediately because was afraid one would hurt the other before the show and the match would be off. Booker then called both down.
Booker warned Sheamus that if he touches Show he loses his title shot, and then warned Show that if he touches Sheamus that he will be stripped of his title. Booker asked Sheamus to sign, who said in nine days his Christmas is coming early, and he'd be getting the ultimate present, the world championship. He then signed the agreement. Show said Sheamus hit him thirty times with a chair and he still walked away, and then stated that he'd only have to hit Sheamus once, and that it will change him forever. They discuss each other's careers, some ballyhoo ensues and Show dumps the table on Sheamus, signs and then hid behind Booker, laughing as Sheamus nearly lost his temper. Booker calmed Sheamus by telling him he could take out his frustration on Alberto Del Rio later in the program. Booker then booked Show vs. Daniel Bryan…NEXT!
And here we go, Bryan works leg kicks early, trying to break down Show. Show fights back with clubbing shots, and takes Bryan to the corner. Chops miss, and more leg kicks by Bryan. Body shot by Show slows down Bryan. A big body slam follows, and then head butts by Show. Big chop by Show, Bryan tries to land some chops, lands kicks as well. Body shot again by Show, and then charges and gets an ass splash in the corner. Off the ropes, dropkick to the knee by Bryan and Show rolls to the floor. Cross body the floor caught, and Show tries to slam Bryan to he post, but Bryan slides out and slams Show into the post. Bryan leaps off the apron, and eats a right to the gut…
We are back from commercial and Show works the arm of Bryan. Show stands on the arm now, which has to suck. Show continues to work on the arm, to the corner and he charges, but Bryan kicks him in the face. Corner dropkick by Bryan, another and then more leg kicks. Kicks to the chest, Show fights back, looks for a chokeslam, but Bryan gets a DDT for 2. Kick to the face by Bryan. He heads up top, and we see the Shield in the crowd.

-Damien Sandow came out to look for an apprentice. This week it was a guy in glasses and a Santino shirt. Sandow did the usual deal and humiliated the guy. The Miz then came out and ran down Sandow's attire, said "you're welcome" and left. Ok.

-Wade Barrett was in the back with Matt Striker; who brought up the fact that Randy Orton, Barrett's opponent for tonight; had been attacked by The Shield earlier in the week.

RATING: The drizzling shits
-We get a video from Raw.
-We get a video from The Shield. They know injustice, and last week CM Punk was disrespected, so they took care of Miz. Randy Orton took advantage of Maddox, and they paid him back. They shield the WWE from injustice. They say Ryback has been handed everything, and brought him back to reality. They work for no one, they are The Shield of Justice. At TLC, bring tables, ladders and chairs, because they will bring a sword…
-Antonio Cesaro is in the ring, and says that he has learned about the United States. He learned that it is weak, and that the American Dream was a lie. We even get a Dusty Rhodes joke. He said that the next generation of Americans would be even more pathetic. R Truth makes his way out, and says that Antonio needs a dose of the truth, and that Americans work hard, during hard times (if you will). Cesaro said Truth was out here to try to get to his title, but like most Americans, he would fail miserably. Truth attacked Cesaro, they brawled briefly and Cesaro escaped, Truth danced.
