“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.

A video kicks off the show that showcases the results of the Fatal 5-Way that took place at last night’s Extreme Rules event. Samoa Joe will be facing Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship at next month’s Great Balls Of Fire.

The RAW video plays, and we go into the arena to see a big pyrotechnics display. Tonight, we’ll hear from the new #1 Contender, Samoa Joe.

Bray Wyatt makes his entrance. Wyatt says last night was the beginning of the end. He had a chance to slay The Beast and save everyone from damnation. Instead of arming him with his sword, they took it from him and stuck it into his eye. Wyatt is still here and still alive and every bit of the god he’s always been. Tonight, he’s here to cast judgement on everyone who is guilty. Finn Bálor is guilty. Samoa Joe is guilty. Seth Rollins is guilty. Rollins’ name is loudly cheered. Last, but not least, Roman Reigns… is guilty. Reigns’ name is loudly booed. Tonight, the punishment starts with Roman Reigns himself.

Roman Reigns’ music hits, and he cuts Wyatt off while he slowly makes his way to the ring. Wyatt is laughing into the microphone and says Reigns is right on cue. Wyatt goes to speak more, but Reigns rips the microphone out of his hand. The crowd is chanting, “Let’s go Roman/Roman sucks.” Reigns says all that noise means he’s The Guy. Reigns then punches him for running his mouth in his yard.

-Commercial Break-

Charly Caruso is backstage with Enzo and Cass. Enzo looks smitten with Charly. She asks him about being attacked by anonymous attackers. How is that affecting him going into a match tonight? Enzo says he doesn’t know who the attackers are, and he’s not happy about that. Big Cass says they don’t know who the attackers are, but those that think he’s the attacker is insulting. Cass wouldn’t let anything happen to Enzo ever. To make sure it doesn’t happen again, he’ll be watching his back throughout their match tonight. Enzo hits on Charly again and turns to see Cass is long gone.

Still photos are shown of Alexa Bliss destroying Bayley with a kendo stick last night at Extreme Rules. Bayley is not extreme. Bayley is at home recuperating.

Kurt Angle is backstage reading that mystery message from last week. Alexa Bliss startles him. Bliss wants him to congratulate her on retaining her title. Bliss says she’s here to help him. Last night, she proved Bayley doesn’t have what it takes to hold her title. Bayley is now in the past. Bliss says she wants to celebrate her life tonight. Tonight on RAW, it’ll be “Alexa Bliss: This Is My Life.” Angle says that’s a terrible idea because her segment last week was one of the worst in the history of RAW. Angle says she promised a title match to Nia Jax, so he’ll hold her to it. Tonight, she’s putting the title on the line against Nia Jax. Bliss is stunned.


Coming up next, we’ll see Dean Ambrose in action.

-Commercial Break-

Elias Samson is in the ring and wants to know who wants to walk with him. Earlier today, he saw a leaf fall on the highway, and it inspired him to write a song. Samson asks them to hold their applause until he’s finished. Samson sings about seeing the landscape change last night while Michael Cole is snickering in the background. Dean Ambrose’s music cuts him off. Corey Graves says he heard that “crappy song” on a college radio station back in the day.


Ambrose says he has something to say, and he hits Samson in the head with the microphone. Ambrose beats him around ringside and knocks him into the crowd. Ambrose gets in the ring and says he wants The Miz. Miz appears on the screen getting his makeup done. Miz says there will not be a match tonight because he’s doing his Miz Comeback Tour. Samson attacks Ambrose from behind and hits a rolling cutter. Samson says that’s what happens when you hit him with a microphone. Samson then walks off.


Coming up next, we’ll hear from Samoa Joe about becoming the new #1 Contender.

-Commercial Break-

Dean Ambrose is walking backstage upset about being attacked by The Drifter. Ambrose runs into Kurt Angle and asks for directions to The Miz’ dressing room. Angle tells him to relax because he will have a rematch, just not tonight. Miz’ people negotiated for the time, and Maryse is planning it. Angle tells him to take the night off and orders him to leave the building.

Samoa Joe talks about facing Brock Lesnar

Samoa Joe makes his way to the ring looking supremely confident. Still photos are shown of the highlights of last night’s Fatal 5-Way. Joe will face Lesnar at WWE Great Balls Of Fire for the WWE Universal Championship. Joe says he’ll make this very simple: what stands here in front of them is a man that does not fear Brock Lesnar. Joe hates to admit this because he’s incapable of fearing him because he’s envious of him. Joe wants everything Lesnar has, and he wants to take it from him. Joe wants Lesnar’s gilded schedule where he’s not forced to come out here week after week in front of the ungrateful masses. He can beat people down and leave as he pleases. Joe wants the ability to instill fear in men at his behest. Joe wants Paul Heyman to be his advocate and run his errands. Most importantly and more than anything else in the world, he wants Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship. Live on PPV at Great Balls Of Fire, he will be standing in the ring staring him in the eye, and he will take the Universal Championship from Brock Lesnar.

“Ladies and gentlemen…” Paul Heyman comes out to the stage to a nice reception. “Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and I am the advocate for the reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar.” Heyman asks Joe to excuse the interruption. Heyman says Joe is rightfully the #1 Contender. He’s a badass that ate through four other top contenders to earn a title opportunity against Lesnar at the Great Balls Of Fire PPV. Heyman says Joe has left wreckage every single place he’s ever been in his career. Heyman says he’s just an advocate and gets in the ring. Heyman says he understands that Joe doesn’t fear Brock Lesnar. Just so Joe knows, Lesnar doesn’t fear Joe either. What bothers him about Joe, respectfully, is the fact that Lesnar doesn’t fear Joe. Heyman worries for a living. That’s what he does as a Jew. Heyman says Lesnar assuages all his concerns. The Rock, John Cena, Goldberg… it doesn’t matter about their legend or ruthlessness. If they get in the ring against Lesnar, he assuages all of his concerns. Heyman came out two weeks ago and said he wanted to see Brock Lesnar vs. Finn Bálor. That’s the best story. An up and coming challenger against Lesnar, but Joe is the worst case scenario. Joe doesn’t give a damn because he wants to take this fight to Lesnar. Joe wants to go to war with Lesnar. Even if Lesnar can assuage all of his concerns, he doesn’t know that for a fact against Joe. Lesnar won’t leave the ring the same way he came in. Even if Lesnar gets by him, Joe will take a piece of Lesnar with him. Heyman says it’s his job in life to make sure at Great Balls Of Fire that Lesnar is Joe’s worst case scenario. If Samoa Joe wants Brock Lesnar, he’s got Brock Lesnar. Heyman then shakes hands with him.

Heyman goes to leave, but Joe stops him and backs him into a corner. We cannot hear exactly what Joe is telling him. The mic then picks up what Joe is saying to him. Joe is very disappointed that Lesnar is not here. Joe calmly explains how he’s going to apply the Coquina Clutch to him, what will happen, and when he comes to he has to tell Lesnar it’s coming. Joe then applies the Coquina Clutch to Heyman and quickly chokes him out. Referees run down to make the save. A loud “We want Brock” chant fires up. Joe picks up the microphone and screams, “And so do I!” Joe then steams off. Heyman is still out on the mat.


-Commercial Break-

Replays are shown of Samoa Joe choking out Paul Heyman with the Coquina Clutch.

Kurt Angle is yelling at Samoa Joe backstage. Joe says he’ll take out anyone in the way of him and Brock Lesnar. Joe asks if Angle is in his way. Seth Rollins says Angle isn’t, but he is. Earlier this year, he tried to end his career. Joe is the #1 Contender, but he’s not Finn Bálor, Roman Reigns, or Bray Wyatt. One-on-one, he’s beaten Joe before and will do it again tonight. Angle books the match for tonight’s main event.

Heath Slater and Rhyno vs. Sheamus and Cesaro

Still photos are shown of Sheamus and Cesaro defeating The Hardy Boyz in a Steel Cage Match last night for the WWE RAW Tag Team Championships.

Heath Slater will start against Sheamus. Cesaro distracts him, and Sheamus quickly takes Slater down before sending him shoulder-first into the ring post. Sheamus takes him down for a two count. Sheamus then goes to the chin lock. Slater fights up, but Sheamus takes him down with a back elbow. Cesaro tags in and mocks Matt Hardy before hitting Slater for a two count. Cesaro applies another chin lock, but Slater gets out with a jawbreaker. Slater then gives him a back body drop out of the ring before hitting Sheamus with a heel kick. Slater goes to tag Rhyno, but Cesaro pulls him off the apron. They fight at ringside. In the ring, Sheamus gives Slater a Brogue Kick for the win.

Winners by Pinfall: Sheamus and Cesaro

Sheamus says that is how a talented team wins. That’s why they beat The Hardy Boyz at Extreme Rules last night. Sheamus asks who in the crowd is happy The Hardy Boyz came back. Cesaro says two guys who are not happy at all that they came back: Matt and Jeff. Sheamus says The Hardy Boyz are probably at home licking their wounds and thinking about their rematch. Cesaro says The Hardys picked the match last night that would give them an advantage, but it didn’t. That’s why they’re looking at two-time RAW Tag Team Champions. They don’t just set the bar; they are the bar!


TJP is walking backstage when he stops Neville. TJP congratulates him on the win and asks about their deal. TJP is supposed to get a title opportunity. Neville tells him to be patient. TJP says he stood by Neville’s side for two months taking out Austin Aries. Aries lost and now it’s time for Neville to hold up his end of the bargain. Neville says he is a man of his word. If TJP can handle Mustafa Ali, he’ll speak to Kurt Angle.

-Commercial Break-

Cruiserweight Match
Mustafa Ali vs. TJP

The bell rings, and they lock up. TJP powers him to the corner and punches him down before choking him with his boot. TJP sends him to the corner, but Ali flips over him and comes off the top rope with a cross-body block for a two count. Ali then applies an arm bar. TJP fights up and whips him off, but Ali holds the ropes. Ali drops him to the apron, but TJP takes him down by the hair. TJP hits a slingshot senton for a two count. TJP hits a snapmare and digs his boot into his face. TJP Then applies a chin lock. Ali fights up, but TJP takes him right back down. Ali fights up again and tries to get away, but TJP pulls his hair.

Winner by Pinfall: TJP

TJP is backing up the ramp when Neville’s pyro goes off and scares him. Neville makes his way to the stage with a forlorn look on his face. Neville says he doesn’t exactly know how to break this to TJP, but he spoke to Kurt Angle about his title opportunity. While he’s the King of the Cruiserweights, he’s not a miracle worker. Neville has some unfortunate news for Neville. TJP says they’ll go back to talk to Angle together. Neville attacks him from behind and screams that he’s not on his level. Neville slams his face against the stage floor and stands over him. Neville says TJP has his shot tomorrow night on 205 Live.

-Commercial Break-

It’s time for another “Shattered Dreams Production.” Goldust says R-Truth thinks he can sit in his director’s chair. Goldust says, “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.” Gone With The Wind, 1939. Goldust has seen the truth and the bigger motion picture. Soon, the biggest names in Hollywood and the brightest stars in the sky will be glittered in gold. It’s going to be so beautiful. The Golden Age is back.

Sasha Banks is backstage with Mickie James and Dana Brooke. Alexa Bliss walks up and tries to be nice, but Banks walks off on her. Bliss gets James and Brooke to hold back. She says it’s unfair that Nia Jax is getting a shot over them. Brooke has improved a lot, and James is a legend in this division. Bliss says they have a Nia Jax problem. If they don’t stand together, their division and sisterhood won’t be the same. Brooke says they don’t have a Nia Jax problem… Bliss does. James says they’ll be at ringside to watch her deal with her problem all by herself. They walk off while Bliss looks worried.

-Commercial Break-

Maryse welcomes them to the biggest celebration in WWE history. Tonight is the night they can celebrate her husband, a sexy, gorgeous, beautiful man. She introduces The Miz to the ring.

The Miz makes his way to the ring with the WWE Intercontinental Championship looking very proud of himself. Still photos are shown of The Miz using a distraction to beat Ambrose. The crowd chants, “You deserve it” at him, parodying themselves. The Miz says that would mean so much more if they didn’t do it every time a superstar won a new title in WWE. Miz says he is the only WWE superstar that deserves this title. Tonight, The Miz’ Intercontinental Championship Comeback Tour kicks off. Last night, he exiled Dean Ambrose to continue his journey to restore the Intercontinental Championship to its former glory. Miz asks the crowd to raise their styrofoam cups. May the world never know what it’s like to not have him as the champion. Miz thanks Maryse for organizing all this stuff, especially the bear. Maryse says she didn’t get the bear. Miz is confused and then looks worried. Miz beats the bear down and gives it a Skull Crushing Finale. Miz rips the bear head off, but it’s not Ambrose. Miz says, “Well, kid, at least you can say you’ve been beat up by the Intercontinental Champion,” before throwing him out of the ring.

A stagehand brings down a wrapped box that looks like it could contain a human in it. Miz says there are so many things you can actually get in that box. Miz attacks the box with a steel chair, spears it down, and drops an elbow on it. Maryse screams it a gift from her. Miz pulls out a broken grandfather clock. She says it’s from her because he’s timeless. She shoves the microphone into him and angrily walks off. Miz begs her to come back. Miz blames Dean Ambrose for this and looks around for him.
