The following was taped on Monday, June 27 in Las Vegas, Nevada:
WWE Monday Night Raw for July 4:
*John Cena comes out and says CM Punk has lost his privilege to face him at Money In The Bank for the WWE Championship. They will have a triple threat match to determine the new number one contender. Cena says things will continue on as if CM Punk never existed. Cena says he doesn’t like the decision. Even though he doesn’t agree with him, he supports CM Punk’s right to speak his mind. Cena says he wants Vince McMahon to talk about this tonight.
*Kelly Kelly & Eve Torres def. The Bella Twins
*R-Truth is interviewed, saying he shouldn’t have to win a triple threat match to face John Cena since he beat him last week. R-Truth says it’s a conspiracy. Alberto Del Rio walks up and says it’s his destiny to win the match.
*David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty def. Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov to retain the WWE Tag Team Championships. Zack Ryder came out after the match, said his catchphrase, and left.
*The Miz complains about not being in the triple threat match and blames Alex Riley for that.
*Jack Swagger def. Sgt. Slaughter. Evan Bourne saves Slaughters after Swagger holds the ankle lock on too long. Slaughter then leads the crowd to saying the Pledge of Allegiance.
*Alberto Del Rio def. Rey Mysterio & R-Truth to become the new number one contender for the WWE Championship at Money in the Bank
*Dolph Ziggler & Vickie Guerrero hold a Fourth of July party. Kofi Kingston interrupts and says Ziggler can’t beat him without Vickie in his corner. They brawl and Vickie falls into the cake.
*Alex Riley def. The Miz. Miz attacked Riley after the match. Miz put him through the barricade and dropped the steel steps on him.
*Vince McMahon comes out. McMahon says Punk was out of line with his comments and he wanted too much money for a new contract. That’s why he’s suspended. John Cena comes out and says he wants to face CM Punk at the PPV. Cena says if McMahon doesn’t want to fight then he should “hang it up”.
McMahon says he really suspended Punk because he doesn’t want him leaving with the championship. Cena makes fun of McMahon for not letting Punk wrestle. McMahon tells him not to piss him off and be like Hulk Hogan. McMahon eventually reinstates CM Punk and rebooks the PPV match. McMahon warns Cena that if Punk leaves the PPV with the title that Cena will be fired.
