“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.

We go into the WWE ThunderDome to hear Randy Orton’s music.
RK-Bro, consisting of Randy Orton and Riddle, make their way
to the ring.

Before the match begins, Raw Tag Team Champions AJ Styles
and Omos come out to the stage. Styles thanks everyone for
coming out. WWE will be back on the road next month. They’ll
be defending their titles live and in person against the
very best WWE has to offer. These are the tag teams they
want, like the 11-time Tag Team Champions the New Day.
Styles says they are national treasures. They can have the
same match they had at WrestleMania.

Styles continues to talk about the tag teams. Styles says
Lince Dorado is alone tonight because Gran Metalik got
injured. The Viking Raiders are all about getting paid. Then
we have RK-Bro. The sky is the limit for Riddle, while Randy
Orton is an all-time legend. Omos says they are magnificent,
stupendous, handsome, and phenomenal.

Kofi Kingston says Style and Omos are detestable and booty.
They’re not a registered tag team. Styles says that’s
“totally cap.” They have the Tag Titles. Styles tells
Kingston not to interrupt him while he’s being nice. Orton
says if he’s trying to be nice, he can shut his damn mouth.
Riddle says all you have to do is close your mouth, turn the
key, and toss it away. Riddle talks about the RK-Bro
merchandise and starts telling a story about his uncle and
snakes. Orton lowers Riddle’s microphone and has him zip his
lips. Orton takes the imaginary key and puts it in his boot.
Riddle puts his head down. Styles asks if anyone else wants
to interrupt him.

The Miz’ music hits, and he is wheeled out to the stage by
John Morrison. Miz says he’s sorry to interrupt. Morrison
says Miz has nothing to be sorry for since he’s so brave.
Miz says the tag division is dry. Morrison says that’s why
he has his patent-pending Drip Stick to moisten things up.
Morrison is entering the Battle Royal. Morrison starts doing
his entrance and the slo-mo starts as he lets Miz’
wheelchair go. Miz rolls down the ramp and is terrified in

Orton and Riddle hit the New Day with RKOs. Lince Dorado is
then dropped with an RKO. The Tag Team Battle Royal is next.

Dorado over the top rope to eliminate the Lucha House Party.

sprays the Drip Stick near them, so they eliminate him. The
Viking Raiders go after T-Bar and Mace, but they’re wiped
out. T-Bar and Mace then take out Riddle and Orton before
giving the New Day chokeslams. The tag teams soon gang up on
them and eliminate T-Bar and Mace.

-Commercial Break-

We come back from the break to see the Viking Raiders making
a run. Riddle is eliminated, but RK-Bro is still alive
because Orton is still in. Erik and Ivar take it to the New
Day and eliminate Woods. They crush Kingston with a dropkick
before Erik slams Ivar into Kingston’s head. Orton comes
back and sends Ivar into the ring post before hitting Erik
with a snap powerslam. Ivar takes Orton down and slams him.
Erik goes to scoop slam Ivar onto Orton, but Kingston double
stomps Ivar down onto Erik! Kingston gets fired up and goes
for Trouble in Paradise on Orton, but Riddle intercepts it!
Kingston is then eliminated to eliminate the New Day

The Viking Raiders go after Orton… and they get the
elimination! The Viking Raiders are the #1 Contenders for
the Raw Tag Team Championship.

Winners: The Viking Raiders

Footage is shown of Nikki Cross “defeating” Raw Women’s
Champion Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair in back-to-back 2-
Minute Beat the Clock Challenges.

WWE Officials Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville are talking when
Charlotte Flair walks up. Flair says she was publicly forced
into that match last week and wants it stricken from her
record. Pearce and Deville both disagree. Flair wants a
rematch against Nikki Cross. Raw Women’s Champion Rhea
Ripley walks up and says she actually respects Cross. If
anyone deserves a rematch, it’s her. Pearce and Deville say
Flair and Ripley will team up tonight to take on Nikki Cross
and a partner of her choosing. Flair says she’ll be
professional, unlike her partner.

-Commercial Break-

Battle Royal.

aren’t into electricity or deodorant apparently. Erik says
the way they live honors their viking tradition. Omos takes
a big bite of the turkey leg.

Video Package: Alexa Bliss was changed by the darkness

Shayna Baszler will be a guest on Alexa’s Playground later

“Ladies and gentlemen… Elias.”

Elias is in the ring and strums a chord on his guitar. Elias
greets the WWE ThunderDome. There will be no other
introduction tonight. You could’ve been out here walking
with the brand new Tag Team Champions, but Jaxson Ryker got
in the way. If Ryker did what Elias said, they’d be
celebrating with the Tag Team Championship. Instead, Ryker
became completely unhinged. For the sake of his career, he
had to get away.

Footage is shown of Elias leaving Ryker high and dry to the
hands of Omos last week on Raw.

Elias talks about seeing the ghosts of war in Ryker’s eyes,
but he didn’t see a man that would go to battle for him.
Elias walked out on him, but that doesn’t change the fact
that there’s an unwavering universal truth that everyone
knows in their hearts that WWE stands for Walk With Elias.
Before he walks all over that maniac…

Jaxson Ryker attacks Elias from behind. Ryker has a crew cut
that makes him look like a beefier and tattooed Zack Ryder.
Ryker throws Elias’ guitar out of the ring and punches away
at him. Referees run down to pull Ryker off.

-Commercial Break-

WWE SummerSlam will take place at Allegiant Stadium in Las
Vegas this August.

clothesline over the top rope. Ryker blocks a punch and
punches away at Elias. Elias quickly bounces Ryker off the
steel steps and gets in the ring. Ryker gets in the ring
before being counted out. Elias clotheslines Ryker down.
Elias connects with a spinebuster for a near fall. Elias
punches away at Ryker (Ryker takes a bump before one of the
punches is delivered). Elias hits an inverted atomic drop
and lift shim up. Ryker pulls the beard and hits a Bobby
Lashley one-armed spinebuster. Elias runs away and gets
counted out.

Winner by Count-Out: Jaxson Ryker

Ryker screams at Elias and a HUGE gloop of snot and saliva
comes out of his mouth, gets stuck on his beard, and after
what seemed like a thousand years, dripped off to the mat.
The camera stayed on it the whole time.

Video Package: Drew McIntyre defeats Kofi Kingston last week
on WWE Raw to earn a WWE Championship match

Drew McIntyre makes his entrance. We’ll have a Hell in a
Cell contract signing, next.

-Commercial Break-

WWE Championship contract signing

The ring has a table with some chairs set up in it. Drew
McIntyre is sitting in one of the chairs. WWE Officials Adam
Pearce and Sonya Deville are there as well. McIntyre says as
we await WWE Champion Bobby Lashley with his external
charisma and everyone on the Lashley train, he wants to
tells a story. McIntyre tells the story of Robert the Bruce
and ultimately succeeding. McIntyre will also succeed and
get his WWE Championship back at Hell in a Cell. McIntyre
wants to make this official.

MVP cuts McIntyre off and apologizes for being fashionably
late. They make their entrance. Lashley sits down in the
chair. MVP says the All Mighty wants this to be McIntyre’s
final chance at the WWE Championship. If McIntyre doesn’t
win, he cannot challenge for the WWE Championship again. MVP
continues to talk, but McIntyre cuts him off and says he
accepts the terms. McIntyre then says he wants to have this
match where no one can interfere. McIntyre wants a Hell in a
Cell match, and MVP accepts for Lashley. McIntyre says he
went through hell months ago and put it all on the line.
McIntyre still feels his last Hell in a Cell match to this
day and will do it all over again to beat Lashley.

They sign the contract, and MVP asks Pearce if it’ll be
notarized. Pearce says it will be. Lashley says McIntyre
cannot beat him. McIntyre says he’ll see him in hell.
Lashley says he’ll beat him there as well. McIntyre takes
the Claymore Sword and splits the table in half with one
swing. Lashley is shocked.

Sarah Schreiber is backstage with Nikki Cross. Cross will
team with Asuka to take on Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley
later tonight.

not in his league. They’re not even close to it. Sheamus
happily walks off.

The New Day are talking backstage when MVP asks to talk to
Kofi Kingston. Kingston tells Xavier Woods he can handle
MVP. MVP says he was impressed with Kingston’s match last
week. MVP says he may now represent the All Mighty WWE
Champion, but a while ago he was a Kofi fan. MVP says he
watched Kingston win the WWE Championship and cried tears of
joy. Kingston was a champion he could relate to and be proud
of. KofiMania was everything. Then it just ended. Did
Kingston ever think about why that happened? MVP says he got
comfortable. Last week, he saw glimpses of that Kingston
that brought us KofiMania. Then he shook hands with Drew
McIntyre, meaning he’s comfortable with losing. KofiMania
ended because Kingston let it. Kingston tells him to watch
his mouth. You don’t bring up his friends and family. They
motivate him. What does Lashley fight for? Money? MVP says
Lashley fights for honor and prestige before walking off.
