We see the Raw Men’s Team backstage, sitting around. Braun Strowman walks in and they all stand up, He says to Ziggler, McIntyre, Lashley and Balor that he doesn’t like them. He says he doesn’t even know who Lio Rush is. He says he doesn’t like them, but they had better carry their weight tonight. If they don’t, they’re all going to get his hands. McIntyre stands up to him and says he’s the one who should be barking orders. After all, he ended Kurt Angle and ended The Shield. Next, he plans on brutalising Shane McMahon for stealing the World Cup from Ziggler. They get face to face until Baron Corbin comes in and separates them. Strowman wants to kill Corbin but can’t touch him, so instead throws Lio Rush into him. Strowman leaves as the entire Raw team is bickering. R-Truth walks in and tells them to calm down, to which Corbin shouts “What the hell are you even doing here?”
#TeamRAW has a choice.

Tag Team Champions Vs. Champions
The Author’s of Pain W/Drake Maverick Vs. The Bar W/The Big Show
Hard to believe this actually happened, but right before the match began you could see a guy in the front row getting very rowdy. Turns out it was Enzo Amore. He was quickly removed by security and booted from the arena. What an idiot.
Sheamus and Rezar start the match. They lock up before Rezar shoves him to the corner. Cesaro runs in and takes Akam off the apron. Cesaro tags in, and The Bar hits Rezar with a double-team clothesline. Cesaro takes Rezar down before catching Akam with a Cesaro Swing. Rezar runs in to stops it and almost runs right into Akam during the swing.

Sheamus catches Rezar with a Brogue Kick and covers, but Drake Maverick puts Rezar’s foot on the ropes!
Cesaro chases Maverick around the ring, and he runs right into Big Show. Big Show puts Maverick on the apron and chokes him. Maverick urinates in his pans s. Yep, I did not just make that up. Cesaro, Sheamus and Show stare at him on the apron until Akam knocks Sheamus into Cesaro and Big Show. AOP then hit Sheamus with a powerbomb/neckbreaker combo for the win.
Winners: The Authors of Pain
Sheamus and Cesaro regroup with Show inside the ring, while Maverick walks AOP to the back, while fixing his fly. So far, Raw’s clean sweep is in effect. Hopefully this is building to a Daniel Bryan win!
Nothing to see here. @WWEMaverick is totally fine.
