This week’s RAW opens with Mr. Money In The Bank, Big E, making his way down to the ring and he’s very excited. Randy Orton and Riddle make their way to the ring next, followed by Bobby Lashley and MVP.
Big E says, just to clarify, he still intends on cashing-in tonight and becoming the WWE Champion. Riddle says he’s happy to see Big E, he’s a stallion, but could he not cash-in on his friend Randy? MVP tells him to shut up and says Big E won’t cash-in on Randy Orton because Bobby Lashley will retain his title tonight. MVP says he’s normally happy to see Big E also but tonight’s a bad night. MVP asks Orton why he asked to have his title match tonight and Randy says he didn’t want to wait another minute.
Orton says he knows the only way he could maybe throw Lashley off his game is by changing the date of their match, so he did what he had to because he’s Randy frickin’ Orton. MVP says Big E hangs out with clowns and he always believed E would be a Champion. He was excited to see Big E break away and level-up as a competitor but he ran away from SmackDown, maybe because he’s afraid of Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar. Orton says MVP is wasting his breath because Big E is irrelevant.
Big E and Orton argue about who will be Champion and Lashley gets annoyed, he says he’s going to take pleasure in pummelling Orton and then he’s going to shove his foot so far up Big E’s ass he’ll be able to taste it. Big E shoves the briefcase in Lashley’s face and he slaps it out of the ring. Big E and Lashley stare each other down until Orton hits Lashley with an RKO outta nowhere! Orton and Riddle leave while Big E sits in the corner and watches Lashley intently.
Charlotte Flair is interviewed backstage and she says Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax are great examples of why she’s the Queen. She doesn’t allow herself to be dragged back by friends and tonight she will give Shayna a lesson in humility. She is the best at everything, the ring is her domain. Long live the Queen.

Alexa Bliss comes out after the match and brings a present to the ring for Charlotte. Bliss says it’s a gift for accepting her challenge at Extreme Rules. Charlotte says thanks, but no thanks. She doesn’t collect dolls, she collects Championship’s and Bliss needs to leave her dollies at home. Bliss tells her to let her hair don once in a while and Lilly loves to give gifts, so take it. Flair refuses and Bliss keeps trying to force it on her.
Eventually Charlotte takes it and listens to hear if its a bomb. The fans chant “open it”. Charlotte slowly opens the box and pulls out a doll that looks like Lilly but with blonde hair and the title around her waist. Bliss is excited and says the doll is called Charlie, which the fans start chanting. Blis says it’s something for her to play with once she takes her title. “Everyone deserves a friend, even a self-asorbed, narcisstic bitch like you.”
Flair says everyone wants their doll to look like her but Bliss is crazy if she thinks she wants the dumb thing, or for thinking she’s taking her title. Flair says after she beats her at Extreme Rles she’ll get Mattell to send her a Charlotte Flair figure. Flair throws the doll at Bliss, who then jumps on her. Charlotte is knocked from the ring, then rushes back inside and liss hits her with a Code Red and poses with the belt.
