The crowd chants for Lynch as she’s in the ring. Lynch says, “The Man has come around to Boston!” Lynch calls out Bayley and Baszler. If they’re here, they can come face her champion-to-champion. They’ve been running from one show to the next yelling about brand supremacy, but she doesn’t give a bullocks about that. If they want a fight, she’s right here. What better place for an Irish person to fight than Boston?

Lynch knows that she’s supposed to team with Charlotte for whatever reason, but she’ll take on The IIconics by herself right now.
Charlotte Flair makes her way to the ring. Flair says if Lynch wants them all to herself, that’s fine. Flair doesn’t want to tag with her either, but the forces want them anyway. Flair has a match at Survivor Series, too. She’ll lead Team Raw against Team SmackDown and Team NXT in the first-ever Women’s Triple Threat Elimination Match. Flair condescendingly asks if that’s ok.
Samoa Joe’s music hits, and he walks out to the stage. The crowd chants his name.

Tonight they have the opportunity to make magic. Triple H says he’s here for the same reason he was here for Seth Rollins, but different. Triple H has a soft spot for Rollins. Owens is a different breed. Owens is the guy that turned on his own best friend to win the NXT Championship. Owens then had the guts to go down the aisle with the title, walk up to John Cena, and pick a fight. Before the night was over, Cena would be leaving in an ambulance. Owens puts NXT on the map maybe more than anybody. Owens legitimized NXT.
Then he was taken. Owens didn’t ask to leave. Owens probably didn’t want to leave, but he was taken by people that didn’t understand until they had him that they didn’t want him.

Triple H points at The Forgotten Sons, Damian Priest, and Dominik Dijakovic at ringside. Triple H says they’re only here to ensure they can have this conversation. Nothing more. They’re not here to attack Owens or give him an ultimatum. Isn’t it ironic that they came all the way here to Owens? Everyone in the back, Owens’ teammates, think these guys are here to attack. Where are they? They don’t give a damn about Owens. That’s only half of it. The other half of why they’re not out here is because they know they’ll get their asses handed to them. They’ll prove that they’re no longer the A-brand.
The Raw locker room empties and attacks the NXT Superstars. The Undisputed ERA then attacks Owens from behind, and Triple H talks with Adam Cole. The O.C. then runs down and chases off the Undisputed ERA.

Rey Mysterio puts over Humberto Carrillo. Mysterio says he accepted the No Holds Barred match because he showed Lesnar what he can do with a friend. Mysterio holds up the pipe. Mysterio says Lesnar came after him and attacked his son. What would Lesnar do? Mysterio says he’ll hunt Lesnar down and make him pay. The old him would be out here demanding an apology, but that’s not Lesnar’s style. Lesnar isn’t the one to apologize. That’s ok because this Sunday at Survivor Series, he’s not coming for an apology.
