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

An SUV limousine pulls up in the garage and AOP steps out. Charly Caruso asks them why they attacked Kevin Owens last week on Raw. They speak in their native tongues, and Charly says she doesn’t understand. Akam says Charly looks lovely tonight, and AOP walk off. Charly is confused.

The Raw video plays, and we go into the arena to see a big pyrotechnics display. Samoa Joe is back on commentary.

Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring to boos from the crowd. Rollins says at this time last week, he brought the entire Raw roster to ringside to discuss the performance at Survivor Series. Rollins will say it as plainly and frankly as he did last week: they all sucked. It was too harsh, but it was coming from a really good place. It was coming from his heart. This is not just his job. It is his life. The guys and girls in the locker room aren’t just colleagues. They are his family. Families aren’t just about blood. It’s about fighting and struggling together. Rollins took it on himself to motivate everyone to get the absolute best on Raw. Rollins says he may have gone overboard. He thought about it all week and wants to apologize. The crowd lightly boos.

It smells like when the rodeo comes to town, but it’s hitting him hard based on what Rollins said. Rollins mentioned they’re all family… are AOP the closest members of Rollins’ family? Rollins says he had nothing to do with AOP. Owens cuts him off and says he knows Rollins is lying because his lips are moving. That smell he was referring to is “bullshit.” That went out uncensored.

Rezar then speaks English and challenges Rollins and Owens to a tag team match tonight. Rollins says if Owens is in, he’s in.
