Bray Wyatt appears on the screen. Wyatt says humanity is guilty of mistaking intelligence for knowledge. The world is ending, collapsing under the weight of its own sin. Wyatt is the only one that can save us. “I’m here.”

Bray Wyatt makes his way to the ring to a light reception. Wyatt says those who deny him will be judged. Those who sit in pathetic apathy will pay for their guilt. He who dares blaspheme his name will be punished just like Seth Rollins. Rollins has it all figured out and has all the answers. Rollins lives in a glass house where the blueprints of the architect coat the walls and blot out the sun. It only took a dose of his truth, and Rollins’ glass house came tumbling down. If you take his name in vain, you will fall.

Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring and wants to clarify something. Wyatt cost him his match against Samoa Joe because he called him a few names? Rollins is surprised he could get under his skin so easily. When he called him a false prophet and a wannabe martyr, it’s the truth. People like Wyatt don’t like the truth. It forces them to come into the light, but Wyatt doesn’t like the light. Wyatt likes to hide in the shadows and strike in the darkness. Wyatt can call that whatever he wants, but since he’s “spitting truth,” it makes Wyatt a coward. If Wyatt doesn’t agree, Rollins is out here to dare him to prove him wrong.

Wyatt laughs and says Rollins’ pride will betray him. Rollins oozes arrogance, but he knows when he looks in the mirror, he sees a man. When Wyatt looks at him, he sees a man that’s beneath him. Rollins doesn’t want this fight with him because his power is more than he can fathom. Rollins has found the will to slay a king. The Wyatt video flashes on the screen and the lights go out. When they come back on, he’s gone. It flashes once more, and Wyatt is backstage. Rollins may have found the will to slay a king, but a god lives forever. Wyatt laughs hysterically and tells him to face his fear and run.

We see Charly Caruso backstage, and she’s with The Hardy Boyz. She asks about the stipulation tonight, to which Matt says they are in for a long night. They say Shesaro are the hardest team they’ve ever been in the ring with but they’ve proven before that they have Sheamus and Cesaro’s number. Matt says they might think they are the bar, but Jeff says they will break the bar tonight and reclaim their titles.

*Commercial Break*

Kalisto vs. Apollo Crews W/Titus O’Neil

Akira Tozawa is in the front row for this. O’Neil set him up there to try to impress him. Crews sends him into the ropes, but Kalisto kicks him and hits a head-scissor takeover. Crews quickly takes him down for a two count.

Crews hits a snap suplex for a one count. Crews applies a front facelock and takes Kalisto down while he tries to fight up. Kalisto kicks him and rolls to the apron. Kalisto hits a slingshot kick and hits a hurricanrana. Kalisto hits a head-scissor DDT for a two count. Crews counters handspring back elbow into a spinning sit-out powerbomb for the win.

Winner: Apollo Crews

Titus O’Neil pulls Akira Tozawa out of the front row and puts him in the ring. O’Neil then raises his arms up, but Tozawa isn’t liking it one bit.

Heath Slater and Rhyno are backstage when The Miz walks up to them. Miz says he has an opportunity for them. They were Smackdown Tag Team Champions, but now on RAW Kurt Angle is ruining them. Miz offers them to be a part of his entourage. Miz says he made Slater a star in The Marine 5. All he has to do is ask. Slater says before he had kids, he was a kid. When he was a kid, he wanted to be Intercontinental Champion. Miz tells him to join him and he can someday get a title shot. Rhyno says he already has a partner. Miz asks if he’d rather eat spray cheese than have caviar. Rhyno says he already has a partner, so Miz can find a partner because they’re going to have a tag team match tonight. Rhyno then devours some more crackers and spray cheese.

*Commercial Break*

Alexa Bliss makes her way to the ring and we see highlights of her match against Nia Jax last week. Bliss says she was unfairly forced into a match against Jax but thankfully this week that won’t happen. Bliss reminds us that on Sunday night, we’re going to see the first-ever Women’s Money in the Bank match but this is Monday and she’s gracing us with her presence.

Nia Jax comes to the ring and reminds Alexa that she promised her an opportunity. Nia stares down at Alexa, who backs-off and says she didn’t mean to say forced, she meant honoured. She says she is still humbled to have Nia as a friend and want to keep it that way. Bliss says she envisioned her and Jax having an amazing match that lasted a long time and they were robbed of that by Mickie James and Dana Brooke.

Mickie and Dana come out and Mickie is quick to remind Alexa that she’s only halfway to having as many titles as she had. Dana reminds Alexa that she said “we have a Nia Jax problem”. Alexa back-peddles and tells Nia to consider the sources of this information. Alexa says that Mickie can see her star is fading by the second…or maybe it’s just her cataracts.

Emma interrupts the four women in the ring! Emma says to put the spotlight right on her because she is back. She tells Alexa she is ready to take her place at the top of the division. Alexa uses this to turn Nia on the ladies in the ring, saying they’re all trying to take her place. Sasha Banks comes out to a good reaction. Sasha says that Alexa has it all twisted and the fans chant her name loudly. Sasha says that being a Champion is proving is day-in day-out, and right now Alexa is the only woman in the ring who doesn’t want to throw-down. Sasha puts her arm around Alexa and says she wants to show her how a boss throws a party, then clobbers her with the mic!

All six women in the ring start brawling and we head to commercial!

*Commercial Break*

Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax & Emma Vs. Dana Brooke, Mickie James & Sasha Banks

We join this match in progress. Bliss has Brooke in a chin lock. She fights up, but Bliss keeps taking her down. Emma tags in and attacks Brooke. Brooke hits a slow motion boot to take her down. Emma kicks her in the ribs and knocks James off the apron. Banks tags in, and she clotheslines Emma twice before hitting a dropkick.

Banks slaps her and sends her into Nia Jax. Emma elbows her away, and Alexa Bliss avoids the tag to walk off. Banks hits Emma with a neckbreaker, but Jax breaks up the pin. James runs in, but Jax pulls her off. James gets her out of the ring and hits a Thesz Press off the top to the floor. Banks applies the Bank Statement for the win.

Winners: Sasha Banks, Mickie James & Dana Brooke

We see a vignette for Finn Balor and they tease what might be next for The Demon King.

Corey Graves has a sit-down interview with Bayley. Graves notes her loss to Alexa Bliss at Extreme Rules. He says Bayley said she would prove herself but she failed. Bayley says that she didn’t come here to leave bruises on people or send them to the hospital, so she didn’t perform in the match. Bayley says she is herself and she’s nice. Graves says that’s nice but how does that help her in the ring. Bayley says she doesn’t plan on winning matches with hugs but she also won’t do things that don’t fit her personality. Graves asks what is next for Bayley, to which she says her goal is still to be the very best and cement her legacy. She wants to recapture the Women’s Championship. She wants to walk into WrestleMania as the Champion. And she aims to inspire along the way. Graves tries to end the interview but Bayley asks to hug before they stop. It’s reluctant on the part of Graves.

I feel like that interview did nothing to help Bayley. She basically admitted that she is unable to get angry and have a fight, which is the opposite quality people look for in an underdog.

Rhyno and Heath Slater come to the ring for their tag match with The Miz and his mystery partner.

*Commercial Break*

Everyone comes to the ring and we await The Miz’s partner. Out comes the bear from last week’s celebration segment. The bear rides a tricycle to the ring, then scratches its back on the ringpost before joining Miz on the apron.
