We return to a video package of Roman Reigns’ attack again last week on SmackDown Live.

Samoa Joe marches down to the ring and grabs a microphone. Joe says he’s not waiting anymore, he’s giving Roman Reigns an opportunity to walk the aisle and apologise to him. Joe waits but Reigns doesn’t come out. Joe says he’ll play it Roman’s way then. Joe leaves the ring  and tosses a chair in the ring, and sits in the centre of the ring. Joe says RAW is officially shut down until Reigns comes down and apologizes to him.

Joe says he will give Reigns until the count of three. Joe counts to three, but Reigns doesn’t come out. Joe says he has all night. All Reigns has to do is walk the aisle… unless he’s scared to. Joe says the reason the crowd is sitting on their hands is because Reigns is too much of a coward to come down and apologise. A stagehand comes up and says Roman Reigns is in the parking lot. Joe says he’s going to go greet his ass. Joe walks up the ramp.

Joe stomps up the ramp and makes his way to the back. Roman Reigns drives up in a car and starts to get out, but then he jumps back into the car because another car comes from out of nowhere and hits Reigns’ car! Joe is left watching as we head to the break.

We see replays of Brock annihilating Seth Rollins earlier tonight, followed by Seth’s promo. The two will meet on Sunday night for the Universal Championship.

The Miz makes his way to the ring for Miz TV and his contract signing with Dolph Ziggler.

*Commercial Break*

The Miz is in the ring and welcomes us to Miz TV. He says this is a special SummerSlam contract signing episode and he needs a guarantee that Dolph will actually show-up on Sunday. Before then however, he wants to introduce the Heart Break Kid, Shawn Michaels.

Michaels joins The Miz in the ring and poses. Miz then introduces “the pariah of WWE”, Dolph Ziggler. With all three men in the ring, Ziggler gets on the horn and says he has been carrying this company on his back for ten years. He’s been on every poster and every PPV. He’s the best thing to happen this company since Shawn lost his smile and since Miz lost his balls. So he is the only legend in the ring right now, and he will earn that recognition after he beats Miz on Sunday.

Ziggler signs the contract and Miz says takes the mic. He says that if Ziggler feels like he hasn’t earned the respect of the fans after all this time, then that’s because of him, not the fans or anyone else. He says he can’t wait to get his hands on Ziggler, next Monday night on Raw. Ziggler corrects him but Miz laughs and says the contract Ziggler signed wasn’t to face him on Sunday. Michaels then smiles and comes face-to-face with Dolph. Michaels says “it isn’t me,” then he and Miz point at the ramp.

Goldberg’s music hits and out comes the Hall of Famer to a huge pop. Goldberg stomps to the ring and Ziggler gets out. Goldberg gets in the ring and signs the contract. Dolph watches on from ringside. Goldberg grabs the microphone and says guess what? You’re next! Ziggler loses his mind and storms up the ramp, walking right into a Sweet Chin Music from Shawn Michaels.

And that’s the end of Monday Night Raw. Let us know what you thought of the show and that swerve at the end. Remember to come back tomorrow for SmackDown Live. Until then, safe travels!
