-We open with a video package for Dean Ambrose and The Miz, showing how Dean became the new WWE Intercontinental Champion. We then open in the arena with Dean hosting an edition of The Ambrose Asylum. Dean says he's going to enter the Royal Rumble then introduces The Miz. Miz says that every day Dean has the WWE Intercontinental title that he's blemishing the belt then Miz says that he's going to enter the Royal Rumble as well. Miz asks Dean to give him the belt that he believes Dean wrongfully won, Dean giving Miz are participation award rather than the belt. Miz then attacks Dean then Maryse misses a slap to Dean. Dean then hits Miz with Dirty Deeds before leaving.
-We then get a video package for the Nikki Bella and Natalya match later tonight then Natalya attacks her backstage as we go to commercial.
-Natalya and Nikki fight as soon as they get out to the ring then they beat on each other in the ring. Natalya tries to leave, but Nikki throws her to the floor then puts her back into the ring. They then fight as referees have to come out and break them up. Natalya then puts a sharpshooter on Nikki on the ramp before she's sent to the back.
-We then have an interview segment with Dolph Ziggler who says nothing as we go to commercial.
