They also announce that Alexa Bliss was fined an undisclosed amount of money for her actions. Alexa Bliss is now standing on top of the announce table and fans pop. She says Bianca Belair may be champion but she’s the only one here because Bianca Belair went to hide, which is smart on her end. She says Bianca Belair knows she doesn’t need to be afraid of Uncle Howdy or Bray Wyatt, just afraid of Bliss, because Bliss is the face of evil. 
Alexa Bliss doesn’t feel bad about what she did because she hasn’t felt this good in a long time, because she’s finally taken control and she’s the one in charge. Alexa Bliss has the whole world in her hands and she’s not afraid to use these hands to tear more scars into Bianca Belair’s face and take the title, and when she does… the graphics flash on the screen, with the Wyatt logo.

Bayley takes the mic before the match and wants to send a message to Becky Lynch, knowing she’s watching because Becky Lynch has a weird obsession with Damage CTRL. 
Bayley isn’t sure if Becky Lynch is jealous of Damage CTRL’s bond because she has no friends, but she’s not here tonight because either she can’t stand what Damage CTRL has together or she can’t stand the fact that she lost to Bayley.

Bayley tells them to go sit back an relax backstage, and tells Lynch to watch what she does to Yim.

LeRae says she has a better chance than Ripley. Ripley says LeRae only has a chance at having her stupid little pixie wings plucked and ripped apart.

Theory says Rollins was out-classed, out-shined and taken to school by the United States Champion last week. Theory raises the title to boos. The music hits and here comes Seth Rollins to a big pop.
Seth Rollins comes out using crutches as fans sing his theme song. Rollins then stops and dances around with the crutch, pointing it at Theory like a gun to prove he doesn’t really need it to get around. Rollins hits the ring as fans continue to sing with him.

MVP says he can see tensions are still high but he thought Lashley might have something to say, like a thank-you to MVP for getting him reinstated. Lashley appreciates MVP. MVP asks if they’re good, and Lashley says he hasn’t punched MVP yet. MVP says that’s a start and he’s just trying to mend fences. MVP says mistakes were made, but Lashley knows how it works when they are on the same page, and MVP is trying to get them back to doing what they do best. 
MVP says he made Adam Pearce recognize that Raw needs Lashley but it wasn’t easy. MVP says he even made Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin realize the mistakes they made, and tonight they will be in Tag Team Turmoil looking to secure a title shot. Lashley says he won’t forget what went down between them all, and they’re good, but not right now, man. MVP and Lashley share a fist bump and MVP says he can respect that. MVP tells Lashley to handle business as he sees fit, but if at some point he decides to expand that business, MVP’s phone number is still the same. Lashley walks off and MVP smiles.

Ali says he just left Adam Pearce’s office and found out that Pearce gave Ziggler and Ali the chance to team up in tonight’s main event, but Ziggler turned it down because he wants Solo Sikoa one-on-one. 
Ali can’t believe this, and says Dolph Ziggler owes him one. Dolph Ziggler apologizes and says they’d probably make a good tag team but tonight is not about tag teams, titles, or Mustafa Ali, and he hopes Mustafa Ali can understand that. Dolph Ziggler walks off and Ali isn’t happy.
– We see Solo Sikoa backstage taping up.
– We get a teaser vignette for Bronson Reed. Byron Saxton is backstage with Bronson Reed now. Saxton asks Reed why he helped The Miz in his WWE return a few weeks back. Miz interrupts before Bronson Reed can speak, and says Bronson Reed helped him because they have each other’s backs, and Reed saw that he was outnumbered. Miz says Bronson Reed is not just a bruiser, he’s a highly ethical man.
Bronson Reed looks over at Miz’s hand on his shoulder. Miz says he’s letting everyone know that if you mess with him, you also mess with Reed.

Bayley says she sent a message to Lynch when she beat her, and sent a message to Yim when she beat her. Yim shows up and calls Bayley nothing but a fraud and a cheat. Bayley says as a role model, she’s all about bringing fellow Superstars up, and she’s proud of Yim stepping up in Becky’s honor, but the difference between Bayley and Becky is that Bayley isn’t afraid to accept help, and she’s not afraid to accept help in kicking Yim’s ass right now. 
Bayley signals for WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Dakota Kai and IYO SKY to attack Mia Yim now. Damage CTRL triple teams Mia Yim.

Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio take a seat while Damian Priest and Finn Balor stands. Dominik Mysterio learned in prison that you always roll with your crew. He also learned that snitches get stitches. Miz says everyone wants to know what happened in jail. Dominik says imagine being locked up with the world’s most dangerous people, not knowing when your next meal is coming, and it’s push or be pushed. He did a lot of thinking and decided he had to do what he had to do if he was ever going to see Ripley on the other side. When life comes at you with terrible changes, you have to just grab it by the balls, kind of how Maryse does with you.
Miz says this isn’t about him. Damian Priest says it sure isn’t. Damian Priest wants Dominik Mysterio to tell about how he had to set that one guy straight in jail. Dominik Mysterio recalls how he heard his celly talking about wanting to punch him in the face. Dominik Mysterio says he slapped the guy and asked him if they had a problem, and that was that.
