The Raw video plays, and we go live into the Performance Center.
Randy Orton makes his way to the ring. The commentators state that
Edge tore his tricep last night. Orton says last night at WWE
Backlash, he did exactly what he said he was going to do. He
embarrassed and humiliated Edge. He wrote the final chapter in
Edge’s story of redemption. Orton also gave him closure. He knew
when he saw Edge in January at the Royal Rumble when he returned to
the ring that he knew he would never be the competitor he was back
in the day. All Edge needed to do was let Orton help him, but he was
stubborn and resisted. All he needed to do was trust Orton just like
Orton trusted him years ago when Edge saved him from his own
self-destruction. At WrestleMania, he wasn’t the last man standing,
but he stands here victorious after the greatest wrestling match
ever. That makes him the greatest wrestler ever, and he doesn’t need
a WWE Title to prove it.
Orton does need to thank Edge for reigniting the fire in his gut.
Edge helped him remember what it’s like to be the Legend Killer.
Orton wishes Edge was here so he could thank him. Orton knows why
Edge isn’t here. It’s not just because he Punted his skull. Orton
also tore Edge’s tricep clean off the bone. Orton knew when it
happened and could have ended it, but he wanted to keep going and
make Edge suffer so he could send Edge back home to be a husband and
father to Lyric, Ruby, and Beth. Edge is in some god forsaken
hospital on an operating table while a team of doctors try to
surgically reattach that muscle to the bone. Edge has another
mountain to climb. Orton hopes he reaches the peak of that mountain.
Orton hears Edge will be clear in July… July of 2029. Hopefully
their paths cross again in nine years.
Christian’s music hits! Christian asks what kind of man Orton is.
Orton thinks he’s a Legend Killer, but Christian thinks he’s cold,
calculating, and a son of a bitch. Orton laughs. Christian says
Orton is wrong about Edge’s career being over. Edge has never quit
and won’t quit now. Orton doesn’t have a say on when it’s over. Edge
will get his closure on his terms, not Orton’s. Orton cannot believe
Christian came down the ramp to interrupt him. This isn’t about
Christian. It’s about him and Edge. Christian is nothing more than
jealous of his friend. Orton sees the look in Christian’s eye. Orton
knows what Christian wants. Christian wants one more match.
Christian and Edge are the same. Christian cannot accept the fact
that this was taken from him before he was ready to say goodbye.
Christian isn’t medically cleared to compete, but Orton has a way
around that. Orton suggests they fight tonight in an unsanctioned
match. Christian thinks about it. Orton says the offer expires by
the end of the night. If he doesn’t accept, it proves what everyone
knows: Christian is nothing more than a coward.

Owens interfered to stop Garza from getting involved in the United
States Championship match on the Backlash Kickoff Show. Andrade and
Garza argued after. Caruso asks about the incident. Vega starts to
talk, but Garza takes it. Garza can only imagine the heartbreak of
Andrade. He feels for him, but they feel for Kevin Owens. Angel
Garza will prove that Owens is inferior. Garza then asks Caruso to
interview him after the match. Andrade walks up and says he hopes
Garza beats Owens, but if he doesn’t, he hopes he can get over the
Kevin Owens takes on Angel Garza, next.
Kevin Owens vs. Angel Garza w/ Zelina Vega
The bell rings, and Garza immediately goes after the knee, but Owens

music hits, and he walks out to the ringside area. Owens continues

and punches him. Owens grabs the waistlock, but Garza turns it.

for a Stunner, but Garza gets out of the ring. Garza snaps Owens off
the top rope and goes to bounce him off the turnbuckle, but Owens
blocks it. Garza nearly falls into Andrade. They start to argue.

corner. Owens avoids a Bronco Buster and chops the chest. Owens goes
for a cannonball, but stops when Garza moves. Garza kicks Owens in

Video Package: Drew McIntyre defeats Bobby Lashley at Backlash to
retain the WWE Championship
MVP is talking with Bobby Lashley. MVP says Lashley will have
everything he’s promised him. Sarah Schreiber comes up, but MVP is
angry she interrupted them. Lashley says they’re in the middle of a
strategic conversation about their tag team match against R-Truth
and McIntyre. MVP says after waiting for 13 years for a WWE
Championship opportunity, due to circumstances outside of Lashley’s
control, he lost that opportunity. They’re going to address that
Bobby Lashley and MVP make their way to the ring. MVP says Lana is
selfish and just wanted to catch her husband’s eye last night. It’s
completely Lana’s fault that Lashley is not the WWE Champion. If
Drew McIntyre had any integrity, he’d have given Lashley a rematch
on the spot. Instead he’s hiding behind another man’s wife.
Lana comes out and says it was Lashley’s stupid idea to banish her
from ringside. She would never do anything to hurt him. To be
honest, she does everything for her Bobby. She put his career over
his. She colored her hair brown and got a divorce for him. All the
blessings and prosperity came to him because of her. All the
problems happened when MVP showed up. MVP calls her a “thot” and
says she’s the problem. The whole world doesn’t revolve around her.
Lana warns him not to talk to her like that. MVP is a snake and got
into this relationship to manipulate Lashley. MVP says before he
showed up, Lashley hadn’t been around the WWE Championship. Lana
tells him to lower his tone and show respect. MVP is the problem.
They were on a hot streak…
Lashley asks when’s the last time she laced up a pair of boots or
won anything other than likes on social media. He had an opportunity
at the title against a lesser man, but she couldn’t follow
instructions. Lashley is tired of having his life on social media
and even used their sex life to get attention. Lana says if she
wanted to broadcast their sex lives and get famous, she’d have slept
with someone more famous like Drew. Lashley says he wants a divorce
and walks off with MVP. Lana looks stunned.
Video Package: Street Profits vs. Viking Raiders in an “Anything you
can do, I can do better” rivalry
Sarah Schreiber is at ringside with The Street Profits and The
Viking Raiders. Can they ever settle this tie? Montez Ford says they
had a common enemy last night against ninjas. Whenever the WWE
Universe is in trouble, they assemble. They all join hands and says,
“Viking Profits.” Akira Tozawa shows up with his ninjas. Tozawa
says, “Sequel!” Angelo Dawkins says there won’t be a sequel, but
they’ll throw down anytime. Tozawa thinks about it and calls over
the really tall ninja. Erik wants to go after him, but they hold him
back. Ford says he has an idea.
The Viking Raiders and The Street Profits vs. Akira Tozawa and The
The Viking Raiders and Street Profits run wild on three of Tozawa’s

Punch. Tozawa and his big ninja leave. Big Show stands tall with the
Raiders and Profits.
Seth Rollins is walking around backstage looking speculative. Charly
Caruso asks about Dominik Mysterio saying he would be on Raw
tonight. Rollins says Dominik will be here tonight, but no one has
seen him. Rollins says Dominik is here. He can sense his presence.

to deliver a message to Dominik and his father, a living legend in
Replays are shown from the start of Raw when Randy Orton challenged
Christian to a match.
Christian is backstage talking on the phone about how he doesn’t
know what he’s going to do about facing Randy Orton yet.
Seth Rollins makes his entrance. Rollins mentions last week he just
wanted to have a conversation with Rey Mysterio to clear the air
surrounding this situation. The facts are Mysterio is a hero and
sacrificed himself for the greater good of Monday Night Raw. Sadly,
Rey Mysterio declined his invitation. He took the coward’s way out
and didn’t want to have a conversation. Fortunately, his son Dominik
took it upon himself to come to Raw on behalf of the Mysterio
Rey Mysterio shows up on the titantron. Rollins says it’s great to
see him and asks if he’s ok. Mysterio says he didn’t know Dominik
was on his way to Raw until it was too late. Mysterio knows what
Rollins is capable of. This is his one warning. Rollins says he
doesn’t want to hurt Dominik. Rollins wants to help Dominik.
Mysterio sacrificed himself for the future of Raw. Whether he likes
it or not, Dominik is part of the future. Rollins needs Mysterio to
do his fatherly duties and wants him to help Dominik. Rollins
implores Mysterio to have Dominik join him, Murphy, and Theory to
fight for the greater good. Mysterio says Rollins is loco. Dominik
will never join Rollins. Rollins says if that’s not the case,
Mysterio is leaving him with very few options. Murphy and Theory are
looking for Dominik and will find him. He must be part of the
solution, not the problem. If he’s part of the problem, Dominik will
be sacrificed. Mysterio says if Rollins or any of his goons touch
Dominik, he will end him. Rollins says he’s heard Mysterio loud and
clear. An eye for an eye… that’s what Dominik said. Fortunately for
Dominik, Mysterio doesn’t make the decisions for him. Dominik is an
adult and gets to make his own choices. Dominik has two roads to
take: stand by Rollins fighting for the greater good or he can make
the choice Mysterio made and become a sacrifice. Either way he
Dominik attacks Rollins from behind! Dominik sends Rollins hard into
the ring steps. Murphy and Austin Theory run down to the ring.
Dominik avoids them and gets in the ring. Dominik sidesteps Murphy
and jumps over Theory. Dominik finds an opening in the plexiglass
and runs off through the crowd. Rollins is furious!

condominiums… Condoleezza… he knows Lashley got sent to Claymore
Country and must be jet lagged. Now he’s getting divorced. That’s a
raw deal. Lashley says R-Truth is trying to make jokes at his
expense. R-Truth can back it up. He’s teaming with the WWE Champion.
Lashley says that’s later, but he doesn’t see McIntyre anywhere.
R-Truth walks off.
Bobby Lashley and MVP are looking for R-Truth. R-Truth comes out
from under a practice ring, and WWE Champion Drew McIntyre shows up
with him. MVP says McIntyre should give Lashley a rematch based on
what happened. If he’s so tough, tonight’s tag match should be a
Winner Take All Championship Match. R-Truth agrees! McIntyre tells
R-Truth to be quiet. Lashley goads McIntyre into accepting!

title match here on Raw. Banks and Bayley don’t come out. They
challenge them to a title match next week.
The Big Show is backstage with Christian. Show says he’s not trying
to tell Christian what to do, but it’s been a while since he’s been
in the ring. Show can’t remember the last time he saw Orton this
sinister. Christian either understands this is a situation where he
needs to step back or he goes into the ring and shuts Orton’s mouth.
Show would erase the snarky smile off his face. Christian says he
knows what he has to do and walks off.
Natalya is yelling at Liv Morgan and saying she made rookie
mistakes. Morgan walks off. Natalya says she built this division for
a bunch of ingrates. Lana shows up and says she knows how she feels.

humiliated. Natalya knows exactly what she means.

the title is with him in his corner.

to know who is getting under his daughter’s skin. Charlotte says a
lot of people get under her skin, but she does what she wants.
