“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.
Braun Strowman’s music hits, and he makes his way to the ring with Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler alongside him. Tonight, we’ll see two Crown Jewel Qualifying Matches with Seth Rollins taking on Drew McIntyre, and Dolph Ziggler taking on Dean Ambrose. Ziggler says they are looking at the greatest three-man group in WWE history. McIntyre says they didn’t need a catchy nickname or matching tactical vests to prove it either. Strowman says they proved it last week against The Shield, and they’ll prove it anytime, any place, and against anyone. Ziggler says in case anyone forgot, they can check this out. Replays are shown of Dean Ambrose taking a Claymore Kick and losing the main event for his tesam last week. After the match, an upset Ambrose walked off on The Shield. Kayla Braxton interviewed him after the show. Ambrose said maybe he doesn’t fit in anywhere.
In the ring, Ziggler is laughing. McIntyre hates to say he told you so, but he told you so. They didn’t just beat The Shield last week… they broke The Shield. McIntyre can only imagine what’s going through that lunatic’s mind trying to figure out where he fits into the selfish agenda of The Shield. Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins have been the only ones that have benefitted from that partnership. Finally Ambrose’s eyes have been open and The Shield has been shattered. Strowman says at this rate, The Shield won’t be around to watch Reigns’ back when he slays the beast and beats Roman at Crown Jewel. McIntyre says he’ll beat Rollins tonight in a World Cup Qualifying Match to prove he’s the best in the world. Ziggler reminds McIntyre that he too has a qualifying match against Ambrose. Maybe they’ll go head-to-head in the finals. McIntyre says that would be a shame. As good as Ziggler is, he’s no Drew McIntyre. Ziggler laughs and says he tends to agree, but he’s the most consistent superstar in WWE history. Strowman says at WWE Crown Jewel, Lesnar and Roman will both get these hands.
The Shield’s music hits, and Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins come out. There is no Dean Ambrose. Rollins says The Shield is alive and well. They were back there listening to them yap on and on about who the best in the world is so he’s got news for them. When he beats McIntyre in their qualifying match, he’ll prove what everyone already knows: Seth Rollins is the best in the world. Ziggler sarcastically says that was a great speech, but where is their brother, Dean Ambrose? Ziggler says he’ll take the forfeit tonight. Rollins says Ambrose runs on Ambrose time. Rollins says the bottom line is Ambrose always shows up. Reigns says they’re worried about Ambrose when they should be worried about these titles. Reigns says they’ll never get close to these titles. After Crown Jewel, Strowman is going to the back of the line. Rollins says he’s always liked Philadelphia not only because of the cheesesteaks, but because it’s a fighting town. Since they’re both out here, they should have their qualifying match right here and now.

Video Package: The Bella Twins turn on “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey last week on RAW
Coming up next, we’ll hear from “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey.
“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey responds to Nikki and Brie Bella
RAW Women’s Champion “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey makes her entrance, and the crowd warmly greets her. Rousey looks like she has tears in her eyes. Rousey says she’s sure most of them know that The Bella Twins betrayed her in front of the whole world last week. She just wants an explanation. The Bellas at least owe her that. She calls them out.
The Bella Twins’ music hits, and they saunter out to the stage. Nikki Bella says no one paid to see Rousey. They all paid to see them. The crowd loudly boos that. Nikki says they don’t owe her an explanation. Brie Bella says this is show business, not show friends. Rousey was the one to disrespect them. Rousey disregarded everything they did for this business. Did Rousey expect them to sit on the sidelines and watch her? Nikki says Rousey is the reason they’re back. Rousey is a loser that doesn’t deserve a championship. Nikki says she deserves to be champion. Nikki says she’ll give her a little history lesson. They made “diva” mean something. They made it a strong and powerful word. Their reality show put more women and little girls in the crowd. The Bella Twins made the world want to see women’s wrestling even more. Nikki says Rousey walked into a revolution that she and her sister started. She’s the longest reigning Divas Champion. The championship Rousey carries around wouldn’t exist without them.
Rousey starts to talk, but stops to let Nikki finish. Nikki says it’s all about Rousey. What’s she going to do? Come up the stage and break their arms? The crowd wants to see that. Rousey says she’s tried her best to be respectful. She knew the WWE was their territory first. Rousey tried not to be judgmental even though the Divas era made her sick to her stomach. She gave them the benefit of the doubt figuring they just did the best they could with what they had. After The Bellas ran up to her after never really talking to her before after WrestleMania, she figured they could be strong forces together. Rousey says she didn’t realize they were living stereotypes. They’re the Do Nothing Bellas. Rousey was impressed they went so far with the minimum amount of talent. They leached off the names of their men. A loud “YES” chant fires up. Rousey says they plagiarize and dilute their move-sets. They’re relics of the past that need to be eviscerated like small pox. The wait is over because they both know she can rip their arms off and beat them with the limbs. The only thing stopping her at Evolution will be the referee, but they’re not good at holding them back. Rousey says she’s more than just a pretty face with a deadly body. She doesn’t care how much promotion is behind them. Their name will become like the societal sores they are.
Brie says they gave her more promotion last week than she’s had in her entire career in WWE. Nikki says they’ve knocked down doors. Rousey says she knocked down doors in judo and the UFC. Now she’s knocking down doors here in WWE. The only door Nikki knocked down was the door to John Cena’s bedroom… and he eventually threw her out of the exact same door. The crowd is going crazy. Are they going to come down and get the ass whipping they deserve, or does she have to come and hand it to them.
The Bellas start down the ramp a bit before stopping and doing a dance. A security team comes out and forms a line at the foot of the ramp. Rousey wipes two of them out with judo throws before picking up a third and giving him a snap Angle Slam on the floor! Rousey looks up the ramp, but The Bellas are gone. She gets in the ring and looks furious.
Footage is shown of Kurt Angle tricking Baron Corbin in a jobber Battle Royal into thinking he’s The Conquistador only to eliminate him.
Kurt Angle, dressed in a ridiculous vacation outfit, is backstage with Bobby Roode and Chad Gable. No Way Jose comes up, and Angle shows off his dance moves. Baron Corbin then walks up and says Angle must think he’s pretty smart. Angle says he has enjoyed his time off. Corbin tells him the field for WWE World Cup is stacked. It’s been twelve years since he’s had a singles match. Corbin books him in a handicap match against AOP to warm up. That match is tonight. Angle says he doesn’t have his gear, but Corbin says he’ll figure something out.
Dean Ambrose makes his entrance. He’ll face Dolph Ziggler in a World Cup Qualifying Match, next.

Lita greets her “old friend,” Philadelphia. Lita says it’s good to be back home. One week from Sunday is the first ever all women’s PPV, WWE Evolution.
Alexa Bliss’ music cuts her off, and she comes out to the stage with Mickie James. Bliss says she’s a future Hall of Famer, so she gets Lita, who is a current Hall of Famer. Bliss thinks Lita must be terrified about being humiliated going into Evolution knowing the Goddess will run wild on her. Mickie James acts crazy and imitates Trish Stratus. James claims Stratus knows that James has always been better than her. Bliss says James does Stratus better than Stratus. Bliss says if they think they’re going to come into Evolution and beat them, it’s going to be bad. James says they’re sadly mistaken if they think they’re going to get off the couch and come for them with no warm-up.
Stratus says at Evolution, they have a chance to make history. Lita says these two could make their careers beating two Hall of Famers and they’re talking practice. Lita says they might be right.

“Ladies and gentlemen… Elias.”
Elias strums a chord and greets the crowd. Elias plays something that sounds like the intro riff to Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters.” Elias says his eyes are like a crystal ball looking into the future. That future is a universal truth that John Cena and everyone else knows, and that is that WWE stands for Walk With Elias. Elias says he was with Carson Wentz, who says his injuries were painful. The real injuries are mental when he has to care about performing for the depraved city of Philadelphia. The crowd loudly boos him. Elias tells them to silence their cellphones and shut their mouths.
Apollo Crews’ music hits, and he comes out to the stage with a microphone. Crews says he just wants to interrupt him since everyone else does. Elias says he’s the best thing going, so of course Crews would want to be out here. Crews better pray to be on Elias’ good side. Tonight is not the night Elias will make a star out of Crews. Crews says he’s not like Elias. He doesn’t play the guitar and isn’t that funny. None of that matters when he steps inside the ring. Elias has heard that Crews is talented, but he’s never seen it. It’s like Bigfoot or The Flyers winning the Stanley Cup. Crews has watched too many people pass him by, and he’s sick of it.
