AJ Lee comes to the ring and discusses Vickie Guerrero. She calls her a bunch of names and calls her a witch, or anything that rhymes with it. She says the best way to hide a secret is to accuse someone else of doing the same thing and that’s what Guerrero has been doing recently. Vickie comes out to the ring and looks pissed.
AJ says she was minding her own business at home when someone sent her a photo of what we see on the big screen – Vickie eating burritos at dinner with Ricardo Rodriguez. Another is then shown of Vickie having a BBQ with Jim Ross. AJ asks Vickie what she has to say for herself and Vickie says none of it is funny or true. Another photo shows Vickie in a leopard bathing suit dancing with Brodus Clay. Vickie says she has had enough of this… and AJ pushes the point that photos taken out of context mean nothing. They get ready to almost fight when AJ mentions that they would both be fired if they touched each other. Tamina Snuka then suddenly attacks from behind and lays AJ out. Tamina unloads on AJ and climbs to the top before delivering a Superfly Splash as Vickie looks on surprised but then begins laughing.
