We see a video package with highlights from last week’s main event, in which Seth Rollins earned a title shot against Big E. The drip master makes his way to the ring with the contract in hand.
We’re back live with Seth Rollins in the ring. He says he was drafted to RAW and he’s the face of the brand, the only thing he’s missing is some gold.

Big E makes his entrance and says his auntie thinks Seth is a little touched in the head.
Seth says Big E’s title reign has been a joke, just like Kofi-Mania was a joke, just like Xavier Woods as King is a joke. Big E says all hail the King, and he’ll be damned if he’ll stand there and listen to Rollins badmouth one of the greatest moments in WWE history. Big E then says if Seth really wants the WWE Championship, then can do it tonight. Rollins laughs and asks the fans if they actually want that and they cheer. Seth says he won’t be doing it tonight.
Kevin Owens comes out and says Seth sucks. He says it doesn’t matter that Rollins won the Fatal 4-Way last week, because all anyone was talking about afterwards was hsi performance. He says everyone makes claims about being the face of WWE, from Big E to Bianca Belair, but there’s only one man who shows up every single week and works his ass off no matter what position he’s in: KO. So if Seth isn’t willing to fight tonight, he wants Big E in a match for the first time. Big E says “you on sucka!”
