WWE RAW opens with all seven teams in the upcoming Tag Team Turmoil match talking separately about how they will win the match and get a shot at the RAW Tag Team Championship’s. We go live to the arena and out comes said Champions, RK-Bro.
Orton says last week Lashley and MVP tried to take their titles but they failed miserably. Randy says they failed because Lashley is nothing more than a greedy son-of-a-bitch. So tonight he and Riddle will watch seven teams go at it and see which one deserves a shot and which will fall to the RK-Bro. Riddle then rambles about the teams in the match and talks to Randy about getting matching gear, drinking ale like the Raiders, and eating pancakes because he has the munchies.
MVP and the All Mighty WWE Champion, Bobby Lashley, come out to the stage. MVP asks Riddle to shut the Hell up, that the WWE Universe loses brain cells everytime he speaks. MVP says they don’t need to worry about tag team turmoil, they need to be worried about Lashley ripping Randy’s head off after the RKO last week. Lashley says Randy was a coward last week, so how about he face him one-on-one tonight? Randy asks that sounds interesting, it’s been maybe 15 years since they faced each other in the ring. So he’ll accept on one condition: the WWE Championship is on the line.
MVP steps in and says they can do it at Extreme Rules, not tonight. Lashley says he is greedy, so he and MVP will join the tag match tonight and take those tag belts too. New Day interrupt proceedings and Kofi is dressed like Wolfpac Kevin Nash. Kofi says if Lashley and MVP want to be in the match they’d need to talk to Pearce and Deville soon because they’re starting the match now.

Kross thanks him for being on the show and says he’s someone who brings people’s worst dreams to reality. Morrison asks what he plans on doing next and Kross says making him hurt.
Morrison says he obviously didn’t mean that because everybody knows if you messs with Johnny drip-drip you get soaked with the drip-stick. So why doesn’t he eviscerate some idiot like AJ Styles. Kross says that’s a good idea, he will, but after he eliminates Morrison. John says he’s been around a long time, wrestled all-time greats, and he isn’t getting punked out tonight.

Nia Jax is interviewed backstage and says she’d rather not waste her breath on Charlotte. She says Charlotte freaked out last week because she’d never been physically overpowered before. Well she better get used to losing because she’s going to finish what she started and walk out the new RAW Women’s Champion.
The bell rings but Shayna gets on the apron and says she’s not sure Charlotte has what it takes to beat her twice in a row. The real question is, will Nia win or will she choke? nia then attacks Nia from behind and they start brawling similarly to last week.

After the match Baszler leaves through the crowd and Nia stares after her, confused. Alexa Bliss appears on the screen and invites Charlotte to the Playground and asks to bring a robe because Lilly wants to try one on. Flair says she doesn’t play games, especially mind-games, so no, she won’t. Bliss says that’s a shame because Lilly has a lot of pent-up energy. Does she know what it feels like to be cooped up with a maniac? Of course she doesn’t, she’s a Flair.
Bliss says if Charlotte isn’t coming to play, she can bring the fun to Charlotte. The lights flicker and music plays, then Alexa shows-up in the ring. Flair asks what she wants and Bliss points to the RAW Women’s Championship. Flair holds the belt up and asks if she wants a title match and the fans chant “Yes!” Flair says that’s fine but this is her playground.

Doudrop is backstage and asked if her issues with Eva Marie are behind her. She says karma has a funny way of coming back around. Eva has a history of sneaking out of matches, so she didn’t give her that chance last week. She Doudropped her and she doesn’t care that that evil, talentless witch couldn’t make it to RAW tonight. But she’s challenged her to a rematch next week and you won’t believe the beatdown that’s coming her way. The Doudropaloution is coming.
