WWE RAW Cleveland, Ohio
The commentators are Jimmy Smith, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves.
– Tonight is WWE RAW, the red show starts with a video from last Monday on RAW with the rivalry between Bianca Belair and the Bayley clan. The commentators present the menu of the evening.
– The bayley clan then enters the ring. Bayley says they’re excited to see our silly smiles tonight. They don’t want to be here tonight, but they know we need them. That we all came tonight to see Division get saved. Dakota Kai says it was like SummerSlam by surprising everyone. Bayley says we can’t see Becky Lynch changing her outfit every week anymore. Either we can’t make her believe we love Bianca Belair, Belair would be nothing without her. And last week they had to win. By dealing with Becky’s shoulder and then taking out Belair’s fighting spirit. Iyo Sky says he lacked the thirst to win. Bayley says the wrestlers were lost like us, we don’t know how to ask for more.
Bayley says she has a question for all of us idiots. Why she’s the only one who realizes what an indispensable weapon Iyo Sky is. Why she is the only one to notice that Dakota Kai had to be brought back here. Kai says that tonight they will enter the tournament and win it. Alexa Bliss’ music starts and she arrives with Asuka and Bianca Belair in the ring. Bliss says that Kai and Sky are not going to win the tournament, because if they win they will have to face Asuka and Bliss. Bliss says after last week they’re even more eager to win the tournament. Belair says she’s even more thirsty to finish what she started in the ring with Sky. The three have no problem taking care of the other three now! Bayley tells them to calm down a bit. They’re going to do a three-on-three where it matters, certainly not here in Cleveland. Why not go three-on-three in Clash at the Castle? Belair says it’s accepted. Belair says she feels like losing control. The six wrestlers begin to fight.

– Back, the Judgment Day is coming. Finn Balor says Rey Mysterio while they showed fear. Judgment Day fears no one. Because fear is not real, fear is a product of the imagination. But the danger is real, very real and tonight Rey Mysterio will realize that he is dangerous. Priest says if he wanted to he would crush Edge. But in two weeks they will be in Toronto. Edge hasn’t wrestled in Toronto in 12 years, so he officially challenges him to a match, Edge against him. This will be the time to end their story.

We can ask Dana White if we don’t believe him. Riddle is going to come back with his two cells in an interview and say he’s going to hang up his sandals for good.
