"Then. Now. Forever." The WWE video leads us into the show.
A video recaps the events from last week's RAW. Mick Foley put Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho on Team RAW, as well as Roman Reigns. Braun Strowman would later be added to the team. In the main event, Roman Reigns faced Chris Jericho and nearly had him beat, but Owens interfered and caused the disqualification. Owens and Jericho double teamed Reigns until Seth Rollins made the save. Rollins and Reigns stared at each other to end the show.
The RAW video plays, and we're brought into the arena in Glasgow, Scotland to see a big pyrotechnics display. RAW is overseas in Scotland for the first time ever.
Stephanie McMahon's music hits, and she comes out to loud boos from the crowd. She does a royal wave while walking down the aisle. She welcomes the crowd to Monday Night RAW. She mentions that Mick Foley is not here, so she gives a cheap pop to Glasgow, Scotland in his honor. McMahon at first makes it sound like she's talking about the divisive election that has plagued the United States, but she's actually talking about RAW vs. Smackdown Live. There will be three traditional Survivor Series matches. It'll be fantasy warfare brought to life. We're going to see Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg.
McMahon introduces the five men competing on Team RAW. She first welcomes WWE Universal Champion, Kevin Owens, who comes out to a loud round of applause. Chris Jericho is out next to another nice reception. United States Champion Roman Reigns follows, and he comes out to thunderous jeers from the crowd. Braun Strowman is out last to not much of a reaction at all. McMahon then reveals the final piece of Team RAW: Seth Rollins.
Owens says this has to be a joke. Rollins cannot be on their team. Rollins says McMahon knows that if she wants to guarantee a Team RAW victory at Survivor Series, "the man" needs to be on the team. He's been given certain assurances just to be on the team. Owens can rest assured that after Survivor Series, nothing is finished between him and sparkle crotch. Jericho is flabbergasted. McMahon says she knows there is no love lost between the two of them, but these are the men they're competing against: AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Baron Corbin, Bray Wyatt, and Dean Ambrose. McMahon says all five members should be on Jericho's list. She needs them to be a team otherwise Daniel Bryan will be proven right: he thinks RAW stars are lazy and complacent. McMahon says her and Foley picked them because they're the best of the best. They're going to prove it and decimate Smackdown Live. They'll fight like their jobs depend on it because they do. McMahon throws down the microphone and leaves.
Owens says she's right; they need to get on the same page. For the last three months, Team Kevin and Chris have been taking over RAW every week. Along the way, they've made some enemies. They're man enough to admit that they've made some mistakes, but not many. Jericho says they're man enough to say sorry. Rollins and Reigns must be angry because they're the WWE Universal Champion, but they need to put this aside. They're in this together. Even though they're stupid idiots like the people of Glasgow, they are THEIR stupid idiots. Owens says that's an astute observation. That's why they have to listen to the co-captains of Team RAW: Kevin and Chris. Jericho talks about how they have spunk, but they're not co-captains. They need to stick with winners and will win at Survivor Series. Owens makes fun of The Shield. Owens says the name is stupid and it died because they're terrible human beings and kept turning on each other. Jericho says Team Chris and Kevin lead by example. If they keep their mouths shut and eyes open and do what they say, they'll win at Survivor Series. Jericho asks if they understand what he's saying to them right now.
Rollins says he digs before giving Jericho a cheap shot. Owens and Reigns fight outside the ring. Strowman throws Rollins back and avalanches Jericho. Strowman then takes Rollins down before giving Jericho a reverse chokeslam. McMahon says they're going to be a team soon, but tonight it's every man for himself. Roman Reigns will take on Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, and Braun Strowman in a fatal five-way match.
There will be a Tag Team Elimination Match with all the teams of Team RAW competing. We'll also find out the two women that will join Charlotte, Bayley, and Nia Jax on that version of Team RAW.
Brian Kendrick is seen walking backstage. We see a replay of TJ Perkins nearly killing himself with a hurricanrana on the apron. Kendrick is in action, next.
Sin Cara and Rich Swann vs. Brian Kendrick and Noam Dar
Noam Dar came out to a massive reception from his home country. Dar's entrance came complete with pyrotechnics.

Winners by Pinfall: Sin Cara and Rich Swann
Match Rating: * 1/2
Kendrick is infuriated over losing to Swann once again. Kendrick grabs a microphone and says he didn't lose the match — Dar did. Kendrick calls him a loser. Dar lost at the Cruiserweight Classic because he has no talent. He lost in his home country because he has no heart. Finally, he lost as his partner because he failed to recognize that he's the best cruiserweight in the world. Kendrick says Dar is just like TJ Perkins — he fails when it matters most because he is a disrespectful… Kendrick punches him down and starts stomping him. Dar fights back to thunderous applause and kicks him down. Dar then wipes him out with a running kick to the skull. Dar stands tall in the ring while his music plays. Kendrick retreats up the ramp.

Stephanie McMahon is seen talking to someone on the phone in her office. McMahon invites Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan onto RAW next week. Sami Zayn walks in. McMahon says she called him in because she finds his presence competely irritating. Everything about him bothers her. Zayn must've bothered Mick Foley enough to have him be the one to go against Dolph Ziggler. Zayn says it was Foley's idea. McMahon doesn't care and says she wants Rusev to be the guy. Tonight, Zayn will fight Rusev. The winner will face Ziggler and better bring the Intercontinental Championship back home.
Enzo and Cass come out to a massive pop from the crowd. Enzo does his usual shtick and gets in the ring. Cass says there's only one word to describe Team Smackdown Live: S-A-W-F-T!
Gallows and Anderson, The Golden Truth, and Cesaro and Sheamus make their way to the ring. The New Day will address the Team RAW Tag Teams next.
All the teams are standing around while the crowd chants for Enzo. Sheamus says since the so called team captains are late, he wants to recognize how great Ireland is. Cesaro mentions that no one likes Sheamus. Sheamus says with New Day as the team captains, Scotland has a better chance of qualifying for the World Cup than they do of beating Smackdown Live at Survivor Series. A "Scotland" chant breaks out in protest to Sheamus' comments. Sheamus and Cesaro argue over being captain of the team. Sheamus says he's captain of Team RAW. Big Cass says the last thing Sheamus needs to worry about is being the captain of anything. Enzo says Sheamus should be scared of things like the sun, looking in the mirror, all the little kids stealing his Lucky Charms, and dying alone. That's a rough reality. Sheamus says that's funny. Sheamus points at Luke Gallows and says Enzo made a fool of him last week. Gallows calls him a nerd and Euro trash. Cesaro says his insults are lame. Cesaro says they could've had a field day with Sheamus like calling him the Red Rooster. Cesaro then gets the crowd to chant "Shame." Goldust tells them to take a deep… Sheamus tells him to shut up and scares him. Sheamus says he's not going down on the Titanic and wants to leave.
"AWW GLASGOW — DON'T YOU DARE BE SOUR! CLAP FOR YOUR WORLD FAMOUS TWO-TIME CHAMPS AND FEEL THE POWER!"
The New Day comes out dressed like they're in "Braveheart". Xavier Woods is playing the bagpipes. A loud "New Day rocks" chant fires up. Woods says this is Francesca's Scottish cousin, Agnes. Woods says the bagpipes are too hard to play. Kingston asks where Sheamus is going. Another "Shame" chant fires up. Sheamus says shame on the crowd and accidentally grazes Cesaro. They nearly come to blows. Sheamus says to The New Day that Halloween was last week. Woods says they like to have a good time as the WWE World Tag Team Champions. They're also the team captains. What they see in front of them are a legion of teams that will fight valiantly with them at Survivor Series for the love and pride of Team RAW. Anderson says they're out as well. With captains like them, they'll lose. Big E starts quoting "Braveheart" to a huge ovation, but he's got it all wrong. Big E recovers and completes it to loud applause.
Enzo comes up to them and says he doesn't know what they've been smoking in their bagpipes, but he likes it. At Survivor Series, Smackdown is going down like a hole in the ground. The Certified G Real Estate Agency is putting people in their place! Goldust says Big E has a brave heart, and they're with them. Cesaro says on behalf of Sheamus, they're in too. Sheamus asks since when Cesaro speaks for him. Sheamus says he's the captain of this team, so they're in… but only because they still have a shot at the Tag Team Titles. Sheamus asks them to lay off "Braveheart." The New Day then asks if Gallows and Anderson will fight for them and Scotland. Anderson says they can wear their costumes and call themselves the captains, but they're not in charge of them. No one is. The first opportunity they get, they'll stab each and every one of them in the back. Anderson says this is the problem. They'll handle Smackdown Live easily. The teams on Smackdown Live are like The New Day: a joke. Woods says if they're jokes and have beaten them multiple times while being champions of the division, what does that make them? Kingston says they knew they'd say something like that. That's why they asked for a special match, but against who? Who? Who? Against Gallows and Anderson. With the power of positivity at Survivor Series, they'll show that Team RAW rocks!
