WWE RAW Houston, Texas
The commentators are Jimmy Smith, Byron Saxton and Corey Graves.
– Tonight is WWE RAW, the red show starts with the commentators welcoming us and Becky Lynch arrives with a scarf on her arm. We see images of Bianca Belair’s victory at SummerSlam last Saturday. Becky welcomes us to Big Time. Becky says she always gave her best, she no longer knows who she was losing her women’s title. But at SummerSlam she’s happy to remember who she is. It’s not the nice outfits or the glory, but the determination, taking responsibility and being better than yesterday. So when she separated her shoulder at SummerSlam she could either quit or give it her all. So she fought on despite it hurting so much. She did what she had to do to create the best women’s division, for each of the hardworking women behind the scenes. When the referee counted the three she knew she had given her best, but her best was not good enough that night.
Becky says she’s realized that she defines matches and titles, it’s not matches or titles that will define her. Nor is it defined by man, it defines man. This is the comeback story and it starts now! But before she wants to give credit to the women who push her to be the best, she asks Bianca Belair to join her. Belair enters the ring. Belair says Becky not only defined the man, she is the man. The two wrestlers hug each other. Becky tells Belair to keep the title well, they will meet again soon. Becky leaves the ring and the crowd chants her name. Belair says she has nothing but respect for Becky Lynch. People might ask her about it, passing by when Becky shook her hand and then hit her. But she never wanted to be given anything, Becky made her work for her title. After SummerSlam there is a level of mutual respect. She always has a target on her back and she’s here as the champion of RAW.
Belair says she’s ready for anyone, whether it’s Bayley or her friends. Belair gets cut by the TitanTron and Bayley is seen hitting Becky on the shoulder with a chair! Belair arrives backstage to join Becky, but Bayley’s clan has already left.
– A video on the legacy of the United States championship is presented.

The Usos arrive and Sarah asks how it feels to defend their title yet again. Jey says they are 100% as always. Jimmy says SummerSlam was like always. They beat the New Day again and Roman Reigns beat Brock Lesnar again. Tonight they will beat the Mysterios once again.
– Seth Rollins arrives in the ring and we see footage of his rivalry with Riddle. Seth Rollins welcomes us to RAW and introduces himself. Rollins says it’s a celebratory night tonight because we don’t need to hear Riddle’s idiot. It takes a lot of balls to do what Riddle did at SummerSlam, but there’s a fine line to join the stupid side and Riddle has crossed the line into stupidity multiple times. Riddle wanted so much to be like his big brother Randy that he found himself sidelined with an injury that could potentially end his career as Randy. Now that Riddle is no longer here he can turn his attention to Roman Reigns and the Universal Championship. The Street Profits music starts and the duo arrives.
Rollins says he doesn’t want to share air with WWE’s biggest losers. How many times have Street Profits lost to Usos? One, two or three million. They’re such a bad team that they should probably split up. Rollins tells them to go backstage so he can enjoy his moment. Angelo Dawkins asks if they beat Rollins to become RAW Champions. Montez Ford says he’s the same guy who got his ass kicked with a single tit from Cody Rhodes. Rollins asks if they want to fight. He would like to smash their heads in Stomp on the head, but it’s two against one, it’s unfair. If it’s one on one, it would be better. Otherwise they can separate and they will do so later. Ford says they can do it differently. Dawkins asks if fans want to see this. Fans approve. Dawkins says they’ll rock, paper, scissors who will face him. A referee arrives and the competition begins, but Montez Ford pulls the referee with him into the ring.

– We present a video on the history between Edge and Judgment Day.
– Back, edge arrives in the ring. Edge says he’s been acting badly for the past few months, but that’s changing now. Now we can all have what we want! He created Judgment Day with the goal of helping talents that deserved a spot. To help people like Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley have a chance. It felt like it was just the beginning, but the power affected their judgment. They thought they had nothing to learn, but no. He did not see the blow coming from Finn Balor, it is rare, to send him to the sidelines for several months. But at SummerSlam we saw him come out of the hell they put him in. It’s time to kill what he created. Finn, Damian, Rhea, he’s gonna crush Judgment Day !
– Behind the scenes, Kevin stops the Mysterios to find out how they manage to concentrate for this evening. Rey says Judgment Day is behind them, now Judgment Day is facing Edge. He and Edge were once a good team. For tonight, they want to beat The Usos and become the WWE Tag Team Champions here in Houston.
– Back, behind the scenes, Sarah is with the Bayley clan to have their commentary. Bayley says everyone talks about SummerSlam, but people don’t talk about Belair or Lynch, but Sky, Kai and her. WWE needed their role model and they took Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky who waited too long for their place.

– After the fight, the confrontation continues, the officials arrive to separate everyone.
– Behind the scenes, Kevin asks Miz for his reaction to Ciampa’s defeats and victory. Miz says he had Logan Paul beaten, he begged for mercy, until AJ Styles attacked Ciampa to give Paul a win. Why ? Is AJ coaching Paul? Questions that need to be asked. Ciampa says AJ will find out he picked the wrong side at SummerSlam. AJ decided to support a social media influencer who made fun of their house. It will be even more satisfying when he beats AJ. Miz says Ciampa will be the new US Champion.
– Back, Booker T takes place with the commentators for the next match.
