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

The Raw video plays, and we go live into the arena to see a big pyrotechnics display. Becky Lynch will defend the Raw Women’s Championship against Asuka later tonight. Drew McIntyre will also be a guest on The VIP Lounge hosted by MVP. Samoa Joe, Kevin Owens, and The Viking Raiders will also face Seth Rollins, Murphy, and AOP.

Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins and Murphy are in the ring with AOP. Rollins welcomes the crowd to Monday Night Raw. Rollins is proud to stand here as the Monday Night Messiah. At first this name they gave him he wasn’t so sure of, but it’s grown on him. Rollins has come to realize how difficult it is for the crowd to speak from their hearts and make difficult decisions. Rollins is here to speak truths and make the tough decisions. Rollins is here to lead them into the future.

Before he can take them into the future, he has to talk about when his disciples AOP and Murphy took on Owens and the Viking Raiders last week. Rezar won the elimination match over Owens. Rollins says Owens and the Raiders interfered later in the night to cost him a shot at Brock Lesnar and the WWE Championship. Forgiveness is a virtue, but his patience is growing very thin when it comes to Kevin Owens and his friends. Rollins says they aren’t here to preach a message of divisiveness. They’re preaching a message of unity and oneness. They’re not leaving until that message is heard.

Kevin Owens’ music interrupts Rollins. Rollins warns Owens to not get in over his head. Samoa Joe got in over his head, as did the Viking Raiders, and look what happened to them. Rollins says he is the universe’s Monday Night Messiah. If Owens want to be a martyr, that’s fine. If he stands alone, he will fall alone. Owens says every week Rollins runs his mouth and sounds stupid as hell. Now he looks stupid. Owens will just keep fighting because he is not alone. The Viking Raiders join him at his side. Rollins says the problem for Owens isn’t finding partners… it’s keeping them upright. Owens tries to push and shove the Viking Raiders down, but they don’t budge. Owens says they’re fine and they’re ready to go. Owens and the Viking Raiders march down to the ring, and they’re cut off by AOP and Murphy. They brawl at ringside while Rollins shouts from the ring. Samoa Joe all of a sudden comes up behind Rollins and applies the Coquina Clutch. AOP and Murphy break it up, but they’re soon sent from the ring by Owens, Joe, and the Raiders. Murphy is hit with a Stunner by Owens to end it.

Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch comes out while Owens, Joe, and the Viking Raiders are celebrating. She’ll face Asuka, next!

Everyone knows the history with Hardy and Edge, it’s no secret. A “Lita” chant picks up. Hardy says there was one point in time when no one on Planet Earth hated Edge more than him. Before that, they were best friends for years. The Hardy Boyz and Edge and Christian would stay in the same hotel room just to save a few bucks. They were young, hungry kids trying to live their dreams. At No Mercy in 1999, they revolutionized the Ladder Match. A “TLC” chant picks up. Hardy says they invented the TLC match. The TLC match became so iconic, it will be a staple of WWE forever. Those young kids that had big dreams went to WrestleMania and stole the show on more than one occasion. They didn’t do it alone. They did it together. That means something.

When he saw that Edge was forced to retire due to injury, any hate or disdain he had was gone. In so many ways, Hardy and Edge are similar. They love performing for the WWE Universe.

Black says he’s enjoyed for the past few weeks sharing these intimate moments with the crowd. That is what it is all about. Everyone here tries to escape their given idea of paradise one way or the other. Black knows a thing or two about rebelling against paradise. As for himself, he’s starting to feel like an animal inside a cage. Black sits in the middle of the ring. For those that venture out here, know that it’s not him that’s in there with them.
