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

WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill are shown entering the arena earlier today. Bron Breakker is in the arena and will face Ricochet later tonight. The Judgment Day arrived together with “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio earlier today.

Video: The saga between Women’s World Champion Liv Morgan and “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio. Last week, after inadvertently helping Morgan win the title from Becky Lynch at WWE King and Queen of the Ring, Mysterio accidentally helped his adversary defeat Lynch in a Cage Match on Raw. After the match, Morgan forced a kiss on Mysterio.

Women’s World Champion Liv Morgan makes her way to the ring. Fifty million social media views were on the video of her kissing “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio. Morgan welcomes everyone to the Liv Morgan Revenge Tour. The crowd boos her. Morgan says they say that revenge is never as sweet as you want it to be, but not for her. First, she did what no other woman in the division could do: take out Rhea Ripley. Then, she became the new Women’s World Champion. That’s not all because she put Becky Lynch into early retirement. Morgan says the cherry on top of all of it was kissing Dominik Mysterio.

Dominik Mysterio makes his way out to the ring with his arm still in a sling. Mysterio tries to speak, but the crowd loudly boos him down each time. Mysterio demands they let him speak. Mysterio gets in the ring and attempts to say he doesn’t know what game she thinks she’s playing, but the crowd cuts him off. A LOUD “You Suck” chant picks up. Mysterio says Mami isn’t playing the same game. When she comes back, she’s going to kill Morgan. Morgan says, “Maybe, but she’s probably gonna kill you, too.” Morgan promises to make it all worth it. Mysterio doesn’t look interested. Morgan asks how long he’ll keep lying to himself. Mysterio didn’t come out to help Lynch. He came out to be closer to Morgan. That’s ok because she meant what she said when she said she wanted to take everything from Rhea Ripley. That includes Mysterio. Morgan backs him into the corner and rubs his body.

Finn Bálor runs down and backs Morgan up. Bálor says Mysterio doesn’t want anything to do with her. The Judgment Day doesn’t either. Morgan asks what if he doesn’t want to go and neither does Mysterio. Morgan says she’ll go for now and leaves the ring. While on the apron, Morgan slides over to Mysterio and rubs his hair before seductively walking away. Bálor wags his finger at Mysterio.

Video: Last week on Raw, Sheamus and Ludwig Kaiser got into a massive brawl.

Sheamus says he’s on the cusp of 15 years in the WWE. Sheamus has always wondered if the fella across the ring from him could gain his respect.

She also said Gable wants them to redeem themselves. Alpha Academy gets in the ring. Dupri reads a note to Gable.
