“Then. Now. Forever. Together.” The WWE video leads us into the show.
The Raw video plays, and we go into the arena to hear the music of The Usos. The Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos make their way to the ring alongside their brother, Solo Sikoa. The Usos will battle The New Day with the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship on the line this Friday. If The Usos are victorious, they will hold the record for the longest-reigning Tag Champions of all time.
A “Sami” chant picks up. Jimmy Uso says they’re in their city tonight. A few nights ago, they smashed The Brawling Brutes and Logan Paul. A picture is shown of The Bloodline celebrating at WWE Crown Jewel. They talk about being the ones and how they’re going to beat up The New Day on Friday.
The New Day makes their way to the ring. Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston say they are the record holders, and The Usos are chasing them. They’re chasing the guys who changed what tag team wrestling looks like today. They are first-generation superstars. The Usos had people coddling them and holding their hands. They got tryouts based on what their families did before them. They built their legacy off the backs of their fathers, uncles, and cousins. The New Day built their reputation off their own backs.
Jimmy Uso says they don’t know the pressure they have on them. The Usos have a ton of pressure on them, and they succeeded. Xavier Woods warns them not to talk to them about pressure. Pressure is sitting in catering, not knowing if you’ll be fired, making a YouTube channel outside of this company to make him get noticed at work… their pressure made them into diamonds. Jey Uso asks about the diamonds they smashed out of King Woods’ crown. As for Kofi, he should stay at home with his kids. Kingston says this reign represents a time when they were saddled with the gimmick of being positivity preachers. No one should have overcome that, but they did. It represents a time they came to work scratching and clawing to get ahead only to be told they suck. They overcame that. Kingston says this record represents a time when The New Day was whole. They will not forfeit this record to them.
Matt Riddle gets in the ring and apologizes for interrupting. Riddle says he and Elias are forming a band. The Usos tell him to shut up. When he’s stressed, he likes to “hit the bong.” Riddle is carrying bongos. The New Day hit Riddle’s bong(os). Riddle asks if The Usos and Solo Sikoa want to hit it. Jimmy Usos obliges until Riddle reminds him to “tap, tap, pass.” Riddle says Jey Uso isn’t feeling so Ucey. Jey slaps him away. Riddle says no one does that to him, so why don’t they have a 6-Man Tag Match? Because New Day rocks.

It’s always been the three of them against the four of The Judgment Day. At Crown Jewel, it was no different. They tried to find someone to take care of the Rhea problem, but they couldn’t find them. That someone found them instead.
All of a sudden, Ripley is shoved into the ring post. It’s revealed to be Mia Yim! A brawl breaks out in the ring with The O.C. and The Judgment Day.

Gargano comes out with a universal remote that works on the tron to show the footage.
Video footage is shown of Miz admitting to paying Dexter Lumis to increase his celebrity status. Once he stopped paying Lumis because WWE corporate got involved, as did the police, it got too hot.

In just a few short weeks, he has made this THE title to have on Raw. Now it’s time for the Open Challenge.
Mustafa Ali appears on the screen, and the crowd audibly groans. All of a sudden, he’s pulled off the screen, and the sounds of him being beaten down are heard. An irate Bobby Lashley appears on the screen. There are two reasons why he doesn’t have the United States Championship. One is Brock Lesnar, and he made Lesnar pay at Crown Jewel. The second is Rollins. Ali attacks, but Lashley easily dispenses with him. Lashley accepts the open challenge.
