The Raw video plays, and we go into the Performance Center to see
the sparse crowd with face masks on. Some are wearing the face mask
with their nose exposed. Tonight we’ll see Asuka take on Bayley in a
Champion vs. Champion match, as well as Rey Mysterio and Aleister
Black taking on Seth Rollins and Murphy. We’ll also see Big Show and
The Viking Raiders take on Randy Orton, Andrade, and Angel Garza.
WWE Champion Drew McIntyre makes his way to the ring and welcomes
everyone to the show. In two weeks at the Horror Show that will be
Extreme Rules, it’ll be him taking on Dolph Ziggler. Last week, the
contract signing got a little out of control. McIntyre allowed
Ziggler to pick the stipulation for their match. Ziggler could pick
a Cage Match, but there’d be no escape. He could beat Ziggler in a
No Holds Barred Match, even a match that has sharks with frickin’
laser beams on top of their heads. Ziggler said he’d announce the
stipulation, so now is the time.
Dolph Ziggler makes his way to the stage. Ziggler says this is his
decision time. He’s not taking his talent down to South Beach. The
decision… is a secret. McIntyre got cocky and let him pick the
stipulation. He’d be a fool to let McIntyre know before Extreme
Rules: The Horror Show. McIntyre is the exact same. McIntyre tells
him he’s the WWE Champion. Ziggler says his resume is bigger.
Between 2014 to 2017, what happened? McIntyre says he acknowledges
he got fired, but he’s inspiring people to follow their dreams. The
man Ziggler is talking to beat Brock Lesnar in 5 minutes at
WrestleMania and then beat The Big Show. Ziggler says there’s a list
a mile long of people McIntyre forgot about along the way.
Heath Slater walks out to the stage wearing a shirt that says, “Free
Agent.” Slater says he doesn’t think McIntyre gets it. Slater has
known McIntyre for over a decade. They go way back. Slater remembers
when McIntyre first came to the States. McIntyre was one of the
first to get called up to the main roster as “The Chosen One.” Back
then, he wasn’t “The Chosen One.” Now this guy standing here is “The
Chosen One.” Going back to April, Slater was at home with his kids
watching McIntyre take on Brock Lesnar. McIntyre knocked Lesnar’s
head off with a Claymore Kick and beat him. Slater cried tears of
joy, the first time he ever cried in front of his kids. When
McIntyre got released, Slater called him everyday. McIntyre is his
Where was McIntyre for him? They haven’t spoken in a while. It was
on “The Bump,” the one show they allowed him to go on and speak his
mind. McIntyre knows about his kids… not the 22 everyone thinks he
has. He’s talking about his two beautiful daughters. Slater was
there for McIntyre. McIntyre wasn’t there for him. McIntyre said on
“The Bump” that he would petition to have a match against Slater,
but now he’s on the unemployment line. This isn’t a gimmick. This is
real. Slater hopes their friendship can survive because he’s here to
take this opportunity. Slater wants what he deserves… what McIntyre,
as a friend, promised him. Slater shoves him and asks if he wants to
fight. McIntyre asks him not to push him, so Slater slaps him in the
face. McIntyre quietly says, “You’re on. You’ve got your fight.”

walks up. Schreiber asks how she’ll handle them on her own. Asuka
asks, “Who says I am all alone?” She then laughs and dances off.
WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks and Bayley are in the
ring. Bayley says now Raw can start now that they have arrived.
Banks says money never sleeps. When you’re Sasha Three Shows with
Bayley Three Brands, you never sleep. Bayley says they’re once in a
generation talents. Everyone thinks it’s so easy to come after them.
For example, she has to face Asuka tonight. At The Horror Show,
she’ll defend against Nikki Cross. Cross thinks she can take the
title… but she can’t! Banks says Asuka isn’t walking out as the Raw
Women’s Champion. Green mist or not, she’ll make Asuka tap so she
can be Two Belt Banks.
Raw Women’s Champion Asuka comes out laughing and says Banks is not
good at math. As for Bayley, she is not ready for Asuka! Bayley says
Asuka isn’t ready for Banks to humiliate her like she will at
Extreme Rules. Asuka says Banks is not competing tonight… Bayley
cuts her off and says Banks is ready for anybody at anytime. Banks
looks worried. Kairi Sane walks out and will face Sasha Banks.

walks up to Asuka, but Asuka shoves her down. Sane sends Banks out
of the ring and hits a baseball slide on the Women’s Tag Team

his head in pain. Seth Rollins walks up and says, “Damn shame.”

Show walks up wearing what looks like a silver scarf. Big Show says
he loves fun, but they’re facing Randy Orton tonight. Erik says they
looked up to all of them growing up, but they have their own 5
second pose. Big Show chops Erik, causing Ivar to laugh. Big Show
chops Ivar as well. They get pumped up. Erik says their viking ways
may be strange, but the raid is coming tonight. Big Show says,
“Good,” and walks off.
Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring for another edition of The
Kevin Owens Show. Owens says considering who his guest is… he throws
the furniture out of the ring. Two of the chairs break. His guest
isn’t someone you would expect to see on his show considering their
history, but there’s a good reason for him to want that person out
here. Owens asks everyone to welcome a pretty giant piece of trash,
but he calls himself “The Monday Night Messiah” Seth Rollins.
Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring along with Murphy. Rollins
thanks Owens for having him on his show. How is Owens’ fractured
ankle. Owens asks if he’s talking about the ankle he fractured at
WrestleMania. It feels better than Rollins’ ego. Since WrestleMania,
things haven’t been going well for Rollins. Owens says they faced
each other at WrestleMania, which can create a bond. WrestleMania is
the reason they do what they do. Because of that, he wants to give
Rollins something. Owens hands him a shirt. It’s a KO-Mania shirt,
which is like the one he wore when he beat Rollins at WrestleMania.
Rollins sarcastically thanks him and throws it away.
Rollins says he sees what Owens is trying to do, but he doesn’t give
a damn about Owens, his shirt, or his show. The only reason he’s out
here is to use Owens and his show to use as a platform to address
the now medically cleared Rey Mysterio. Rollins will take this
opportunity to challenge Mysterio to a match at Extreme Rules. It’s
time to permanently make Mysterio a sacrifice for the greater good
of Monday Night Raw. Now they can drudge up the past. Owens
sacrificed himself to get the pin at WrestleMania. Things haven’t
been going well for Owens since WrestleMania. Owens has done nothing
while Rollins has risen to prominence. Owens needs Rollins more than
he does. Owens might get more out of fighting with him than against
him. Fighting is what Owens does best. Maybe he should find a
purpose in his fighting and fight for the greater good.
Rey Mysterio’s music hits, and he comes out to the stage with his
son, Dominick. Does Rollins really believe Owens will fall for his
BS? No. As for the challenge, Mysterio accepts. At Extreme Rules,
Rollins’ destiny will be in his hands. Rollins says they were
supposed to compete in a tag team match tonight, but his partner is
a little MIA. What is Mysterio going to do? Face him and Murphy in a
2-on-1 match? Maybe they’ll take his good eye. Maybe he can bring
his boy down and they can take one of his eyes. Owens says he had a
chance to think of Rollins’ offer. He will never fight by Rollins’
side, but he’ll fight by Mysterio’s side. Owens offers to be his
partner. Owens also suggests the winning team picks the stipulation
at Extreme Rules. Rollins happily agrees. Murphy attacks Owens from
behind. Mysterio gets in the ring and clears the ring of Rollins and
Kevin Owens and Rey Mysterio w/ Dominick vs. Seth Rollins and Murphy

that were the case. Black holds off. While Mysterio distracts the
referee, Dominick rakes Murphy’s eyes. Murphy gets in the ring, and
Mysterio hits him with a 619 followed by a frog splash for the win!

his Full Nelson. MVP wishes he could say he felt guilty, but he
doesn’t. MVP wanted to help Crews, but he turned him down. MVP is
the greatest US Champion of all time. When you disrespect him, you
disrespect Lashley. When he beats Crews at Extreme Rules, he will

had a problem with them before, but the sound of their voices makes
