“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.
Roman Reigns’ music hits, and the WWE Universal Champion comes out to loud boos from the Toronto crowd. Michael Cole calls Reigns the most polarizing figure in WWE today. Reigns stands on the ramp and holds his championship up in the air to loud boos. Replays are shown of The Shield reuniting last Monday on RAW to save Roman Reigns from a Braun Strowman cash in. Commentary mentions that the WWE Universal Championship was defended in back to back shows over the weekend for the first time in a year and a half. Reigns stands in the ring, and the crowd is really letting him have it. They loudly boo him, and Reigns just smirks. Reigns starts walking around the ring to boos. Reigns says he told Braun Strowman he’d meet him out here at 8 PM. It’s at least 8:05 now. Reigns isn’t the champion just to hold it. He’s here to defend it. If that “meat shack” doesn’t come out here right now, it’ll be The Shield Workhouse Open Challenge. If he doesn’t come out and get it, someone else will.
Braun Strowman’s music hits, and the Money in the Bank holder makes his way to the ring to a big reception. A loud “Get These Hands” chant fires up. Strowman laughs while saying, “Workhorse.” Strowman says Reigns didn’t live up to that when his boys came out to save him last week. Reigns says Strowman doesn’t get it. The Shield doesn’t listen to him, but they’re all workhorses. They know what it’s like to be at the top of the mountain, something Strowman doesn’t know anything about. All he says is “Get These Hands.” The only thing Strowman lifts with those hands are cars, objects, stages… Reigns’ hands have lifted every single WWE championship there is to offer. That’s why he’s the guy and this is his yard. If Strowman wants to be on his level, he needs to step up, cash in, and have a match right here in Toronto. A loud “YES” chant fires up. Strowman shakes his hand and says he’s not cashing in tonight. That draws loud boos from the crowd. Strowman says everyone in the arena knows if he did, his little boys would run down to try and save Reigns again. Strowman is going to make Reigns a deal. Strowman won’t cash in until September 16. All Reigns has to do is show up to the place his brothers can’t interfere with him taking Reigns’ Universal Championship. They’re going to war in a place they’ve never done before. Strowman will cash his contract in… at Hell in a Cell. Reigns says Strowman is finally starting to sound like a monster and extends his hand. They shake before Strowman throws his hand aside.
Dolph Ziggler’s record scratch hits, and he comes out with Drew McIntyre saying, “Blah, blah, blah.” Now that we’re done with something in three weeks, it’s time to talk about SummerSlam and the crime of the century. Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose stole his WWE Intercontinental Championship. Reigns knows about it since they helped him keep his title. Reigns asks if getting Curb Stomped and being pinned is having a championship stolen. Ziggler says he’ll become a seven-time Intercontinental Champion when he invokes his rematch clause. Ziggler and McIntyre need a new challenge, and it’s the two men in the ring. McIntyre says the Universal Champion and Mr. Monster in the Bank sit atop of the Monday Night RAW mountain. That’s fantastic, but it is a double-edged sword. When you sit atop the mountain, the only way to go is tumbling on down. Ziggler says they’d be more than happy to do that for them tonight. Reigns says they sound like tough guys from the stage. They’re in the ring, so let’s do it now.
Baron Corbin’s music hits, and the Acting General Manager of RAW comes out to the stage. Corbin tells everyone to slow down. This is the reason Kurt Angle was sent on vacation and he was made the Acting General Manager of RAW. Strowman’s cash in is confirmed for Hell in a Cell. Tonight he’ll make a match that Kurt Angle could never have dreamed of and will take RAW to the next level. It’ll be Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman taking on Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre. Strowman says to Reigns he’ll get the Universal Championship at Hell in a Cell, but tonight Dolph and Drew will GET THESE HANDS.
The commentators talk about what just happened.
Baron Corbin gets in the ring and says he’s an improvement over Kurt Angle. For his third and most important match, he’ll make one that Angle didn’t have the guts to make Tonight, it’ll be Baron Corbin taking on Finn Balor, the man… not the demon. Corbin has taken a weeks to prepare for this match, but Balor just found out. That match starts right now. Nothing happens, so Corbin tells Balor to get ready, put his jacket on, and get out here.

This week is about Intercontinental Championship business. Rollins figured he’d have to handle Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre, but they’re busy so his dance card is wide open. Who is feeling an Open Challenge tonight? The crowd gives that a nice reaction. Rollins challenges anyone in the locker room that has the guts.
Kevin Owens responds to the challenge and gets a huge reaction! Owens stays on the stage looking upset. Owens shakes his head and says he’s glad Rollins is happy and feeling good. Rollins has his buddies back, his title, and his crossfit… he’s on top of the world. Since he’s come back on RAW, his life has been a living hell. Every week he was on Smackdown Live, he wished he could come back to RAW. Now that he’s back, things should be good, but they’re not. Rollins had a good SummerSlam, but he had his best friend by his side. If Owens had his best friend Sami Zayn by his side, he’d have beaten Braun Strowman, and he’d be Universal Champion right now. Zayn is at home, so he’s not the champion. Zayn was injured by a brute. Owens says the summer is not over and is not leaving this building without a title. This is Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and he cannot think of a better place… actually he could easily think of one: Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Owens speaks French to them and gets loud boos.

Elias performs live for the Toronto crowd
“Ladies and gentleman… Elias.”
Elias greets the crowd and plays a riff. The crowd claps along. Elias says they’re here together for them to answer one question for him: Who wants to walk with Elias? They will be tested. It will be tough, but when the bad times come have faith. They’ll realize the truth that WWE stands for Walk With Elias. A “Walk With Elias” chant picks up. Elias says they’re all singing for him, but now is the time for him to… Elias has an epiphany. When fellow musician Drake said he started from the bottom, he was literally talking about Toronto. There is no city lower or more bottom feeding than Toronto. Drake tweeted him and said going from New York to Toronto is a big disappointment.
Trish Stratus’ music hits, and she comes out to a big reaction! She stands in the ring and takes in the reaction. Elias introduces Stratus to the crowd. Elias says it is nice she took a minute away from changing diapers to do something important and get in the ring with him. He’s a big deal. Stratus says he’s got some good music, but when he starts running his mouth about her hometown Toronto, he needs to silence his cellphone, hold the applause, and shut his mouth. Elias says his performance in Toronto is like the Stanley Cup — they’ll never see it in their lifetimes. Stratus says that’s kind of like Elias winning a WWE championship. The crowd liked that.
Stratus says a lot has changed since she’s been gone. When she retired as a 7-time Women’s Champion here in Toronto with a Sharpshooter and took her place in the WWE Hall of Fame, she would have never imagined they’d get to a point where there’d be an all-women’s PPV called Evolution. In a few months, she’ll be in this ring lacing up her boots to take on Alexa Bliss. Elias says that’ll be like a swimsuit model pillow fight. Stratus says she has a suggestion. It’s time for Elias to pack up his guitar, floral kimono and scarves, and leave. Elias says she’s just like thousands of other women wanting to walk with Elias. Elias says he doesn’t date women in their sixties. Stratus slaps him!

Bliss says Stratus looks good, but all the yoga and stretching isn’t going to help her with the beating she’ll give her at Evolution. As for Rousey, she’s invoking her rematch clause at Hell in a Cell. She’d never invoke her rematch in Canada. Bliss says tonight is all about Alicia Fox. She’s going to give Natalya an absolute beatdown. They have friends as well — one friend Stratus knows all too well: Mickie James.
