Drew McIntyre addresses his attack on CM Punk

Drew McIntyre comes through the crowd and enters the ring. A “CM Punk” chant picks up. Last week, everyone was talking about how he quit, but they’re not talking about that anymore. They’re talking about what happened last Friday on SmackDown. McIntyre wants to see it again.

Replay: Last Friday on SmackDown, Drew McIntyre viciously attacked CM Punk in Chicago, dumping a bloody and unconscious Punk on the stage.

McIntyre looks pleased. McIntyre says he prayed for this, and the Big Man made it happen. Everyone has been chanting CM Punk’s name for months. McIntyre is done with the people. When they chant his name, it’s just a memory. They’ve spent months listening to him tell them what kind of person CM Punk is. At WrestleMania and Clash at the Castle, Punk screwed him over in front of his family, friends, and country. McIntyre promised his wife he would win the World Title, but Punk prevented that. McIntyre is going to ignore the fans. He’s going to talk right to CM Punk, who is watching right now. McIntyre hopes Punk is uncomfortable and in pain, being fed through a straw because McIntyre did that to him. McIntyre put him there.

McIntyre didn’t just take Punk’s dignity. He also took this: a fanmade bracelet with Chicago colors and the names “Larry” and “AJ” on it. McIntyre says it’s worth about fifty cents, but to Punk, it is priceless. This bears the name of Punk’s wife and his stupid-looking dog, Larry. Punk wears it when he leaves home so he can take them with him and not feel alone. A “Larry” chant picks up. McIntyre says Punk is alone. He’s also in pain and miserable. This will be a theme going forward. McIntyre is going to enter the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Punk will watch alone, in pain and miserable, and McIntyre will win the match. McIntyre knows what it feels like to be alone when Punk screwed him. People chanted Punk’s name. The roster and management accepted him despite McIntyre’s warnings. McIntyre isn’t alone now. McIntyre puts the bracelet on. McIntyre says he has Punk’s dog and wife in his corner now. At Money in the Bank, he’ll win the contract and cash it in that night. Punk will watch alone, in pain, and miserable with Punk’s family in his corner. McIntyre will become World Heavyweight Champion in spite of Punk’s ass. McIntyre angrily walks off.

Video: Last week on Raw, the Wyatt Sicks, led by Uncle Howdy, made a bloody, violent debut at the show’s end.

Backstage Segment

Drew McIntyre is backstage arguing with Raw General Manager Adam Pearce. Pearce says everyone has to qualify for the Money in the Bank match, especially someone who quit last week. Pearce says McIntyre doesn’t deserve a spot after all the disruptions he’s caused. McIntyre says he hasn’t deserved all the things CM Punk has done to him.

McIntyre charges off and walks past Women’s World Champion Liv Morgan. Morgan smiles as the camera follows her.

Women’s World Champion Liv Morgan calls for “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio

Women’s World Champion Liv Morgan stands in the ring and says, “Oh, Dominik!” Since she couldn’t get to him backstage, she figured she would come out here to get “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio’s attention. She hopes he likes the gifts she sent, but she hopes he likes the text she sent even more. Morgan knows Mysterio is playing hard to get, but once he realizes she is what she wants, Morgan has so much more. Rhea Ripley never got Mysterio gifts. Morgan says she cares about Mysterio. She calls him “Daddy Dom” and wants him to come out to thank her for the gifts. She promises to give him one more gift in front of all these people.

Zelina Vega of the Latino World Order comes out instead. Vega says she has a gift for everyone, which is shutting Morgan the hell up. Vega doesn’t know why Morgan is obsessed with Rhea Ripley’s sloppy seconds, but that’s not why she’s out here. Vega is out here to talk about something Morgan forgot about. While Morgan is out here chasing “Dirty D,” Vega is out here chasing the Women’s World Championship. Morgan says the title is the most important thing in her life. She took out Rhea Ripley for this championship. She put Becky Lynch into early retirement for this title. Nothing means more. Vega says Morgan is all about having fun. Morgan schemed for those opportunities. Vega has starved for hers. That will always top Morgan’s libido. Morgan says that’s not true. Vega tells Morgan to put the title on the line right here in Indianapolis. The crowd likes that idea. Morgan says she’d love to, but she’s in the middle of something, so next week. Vega says she won’t wait until next week.

“Dirty” Dominik Mysterio makes his way to the ring, much to Morgan’s delight. Mysterio goes to speak, but the crowd loudly boos him. Morgan asks “Daddy Dom” if he likes the gifts. Mysterio says he got the gifts, but he didn’t like them. Morgan looks dejected. Morgan knows he loved the text she sent and holds the ropes open for him to enter the ring. The crowd chants, “Sloppy Seconds!” Vega says if Morgan was too afraid to fight, she didn’t have to bring out her man. Mysterio says he’s not her man, and the crowd loudly boos. Mysterio says if Vega is going to fight for the Women’s World Championship, he wants to help. Vega wants to hear this. He knows Vega has had her differences with Mami, but he’d rather see anyone but Morgan have that title.

Vega starts to trash talk Mysterio, so Morgan attacks Vega from behind. Dominik’s father, Rey Mysterio, runs down and pulls Morgan off Vega. Rey bumps his son as he runs over. Vega backs Rey into his son. Dominik then shoves his father down hard. Morgan looks pleased and chases after Dominik as he heads to the back.

Backstage Segment

Cathy Kelley is still outside Chad Gable’s locker room, which is guarded by security. Raw General Manager Adam Pearce walks out. Pearce says Gable is shaken, but he is medically cleared to compete.

Backstage Segment

“Dirty” Dominik Mysterio is walking backstage as Women’s World Champion Liv Morgan chases after him. Mysterio tells her to leave him alone. Morgan wants to thank him for saving her from his deadbeat dad. Mysterio says he didn’t save her–he just did it because Rey Mysterio is a deadbeat. Mysterio storms off.

World Tag Team Champion R-Truth walks up to Morgan. R-Truth says he saw her talking to “Tom and Nick Mysterio” before saying he has a soft spot for them. R-Truth knows they’re playing hard to get. Morgan wants to get Mysterio a match against his father next week, but she hopes that she can get his friends a World Tag Title match tonight. R-Truth appears smitten with her and says he’s one-half of the champions. R-Truth agrees to a match, even though he doesn’t like JD McDonagh and his big head. Morgan tells R-Truth to make sure Adam Pearce signs off on the match.

On commentary, The Miz is shocked, getting up and running to the back to stop this.

In the arena, “Big” Bronson Reed makes his entrance.

Reed is soon followed by Chad Gable. Gable asks the crowd if they believe in miracles because rumors of his demise are greatly exaggerated. He was bludgeoned and left for dead by monsters last week, but Chad Gable cannot be killed. Chad Gable lives. In an act of true bravery, he decided to come out and face two more monsters. Much like last week, he’ll be victorious and become Master in the Bank. The LED screens start to scramble as he gets in the ring.

Backstage Segment

Chad Gable is nervously walking backstage and knocks on a door. Otis emerges. Gable asks to talk to the crew. Akira Tozawa and Maxxine Dupri emerge from the locker room.

World Heavyweight Champion Damian Priest addresses Seth “Freakin” Rollins

World Heavyweight Champion Damian Priest heads to the ring. Priest says we all saw Seth “Freakin” Rollins’ video, which was humbling and inspiring. Priest understands why Seth “Freakin” Rollins said he sees himself in him. Priest gets it. They stand out from the group and can represent Raw as the champion. Priest sees in Rollins a man he doesn’t want to become. Priest doesn’t want to stand in the ring and see his successor, someone who is bigger, stronger, and better. Rollins is great, but Priest is the champion. As long as he is World Heavyweight Champion, Rollins will never see the mountaintop again.


Seth “Freakin” Rollins makes his way to the ring in a Cruella de Vil-inspired outfit. Rollins happily listens to the crowd sing his music. Rollins enthusiastically greets Indianapolis. Royal Rumble 2025 is coming to this city, much to the delight of the crowd. That’s in February, but tonight is Monday. It’s still his show. It’s Monday Night Rollins. The crowd sings Rollins’ theme song again. Rollins says Priest, “All rise for El Campeon,” but he says, “All sing for Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins.” Priest wants to run his mouth about him, saying as long as he’s champion, he’ll never get it back. Rollins cackles and says that is bold, but the problem is Rollins doesn’t believe Priest. Rollins doesn’t believe in that confidence. Rollins thinks it’s false bravado. Rollins asks the crowd if they believe in Priest’s bullcrap. Not surprisingly, they don’t believe it. Rollins says he’ll tell Priest why they don’t buy him in that position. Priest’s actions and words don’t line up. Priest says the right things, but in both his title defenses, he needed the help of Judgment Day and CM Punk. If not for them, Priest wouldn’t be champion.

Priest says he gets the opinion. Rollins is right. Priest didn’t ask for help, but people got involved. Priest wants some real talk. The crowd chants, “You suck.” Priest says he’s the World Heavyweight Champion. Priest can’t change what happened in the past, but he can stand in the present. Rollins represents the past and holds a whole lot of nothing. Rollins says, “For now.”

Rollins says he didn’t come out here to run Priest down. Rollins respects Priest. Rollins doesn’t like to be one-upped, which Priest did when he challenged Rollins to a match at Money in the Bank. Rollins is here to one-up Priest. Rollins wants to sweeten the pot at Money in the Bank. It doesn’t need to be anything official. It can be a side bet or a gentlemen’s agreement. If Priest beats him to retain the title at Money in the Bank, he’ll get his wish. If Priest beats him, as long as he’s champion, Rollins will not challenge for the title again. When Rollins beats Priest for the title he’s been keeping warm for Rollins for two months, Priest has to leave Judgment Day. The crowd chants, “YES!” Priest looks conflicted. Rollins says they’ll find out if Priest really can walk a mile in his shoes. Rollins asks, “Whattaya say, El Campeon.” Priest says he likes it. Priest is the champion, so to him, Judgment Day needs him more than he does. Priest accepts this challenge. They shake hands.

“The Ring General” and reigning King of the Ring Gunther makes his entrance. Gunther stands in between Rollins and Priest and sneers at them. Gunther says he fully understands that there is a lot on the line here: the World Heavyweight Championship and this gentlemen’s agreement. At Money in the Bank, the man who established the prestige of the World Heavyweight Championship, Seth “Freakin” Rollins, against the man who has been carrying the show on his back for two months. Gunther cannot wait to see this match. Gunther says, “Gentlemen, may the better man win, but don’t make a mistake. At SummerSlam, the better man of you two will be the lesser man when he steps into the ring with me.” Gunther walks off on them.

Coming up next, Kofi Kingston of The New Day will batter Karrion Kross of The Final Testament.

Michael Cole says they were able to track down an old VHS machine and will show the contents of the tape that was delivered.

Video: The screen crackles, and Uncle Howdy is shown. Uncle Howdy asks someone if they feel happy. How have you been since the loss? Do you feel as though you have been forgotten? Do you remember who you are? Bo Dallas is shown and says he is nobody. Howdy asks, “How did it feel when your brother died?” Dallas says it felt like the most important thing was taken from him as nothing would matter again. Howdy asks if Dallas is exploiting his brother’s legacy. Dallas says he always wanted to be like his brother. Dallas looked up to him and wanted to be him. Dallas worked his entire career so he could be next to him. They were going to rule together. They made it. They had it. Dallas sadly says, “Then it was taken away from me.” No one on earth feels like he feels at this loss. What is he supposed to do? Become a mausoleum? Dallas can’t let people forget what he stood for. They wanted to forget about them all. Dallas says they made them all remember. Howdy sadistically smiles and says, “Yes, we did.” Howdy is shown sitting across from Dallas. The video cuts out.
