– We have a recap of what happened last week between Roman Reigns, Drew McIntyre and the revenant, Karrion Kross.

– Behind the scenes, we find Karrion Kross accompanied by Scarlett Bordeaux. Karrions Kross tells us that in the midst of chaos, an opportunity always tends to present itself and that’s what happened last week. He says it must be nice to be in the shoes of those who were chosen like Drew McIntyre or Roman Reigns, but those who were kicked out of heaven and treated like poor broken toys never forgot. They waited for the perfect moment to strike and take revenge. Time is running out and everyone will pay the price, Tick Tock.

– Just before Drew McIntyre’s music hits, Karrion Kross is seen watching him from the shadows. Drew McIntyre steps into the ring and says we’re in for some exciting times with the new faces coming in. He says he was attacked from behind by Karrion Kross last week. He adds that Karrion Kross chose the best way to make an impact for his return by tackling the number 1 challenger for the Unified World Championship title, but the problem is that he tackled Drew McIntyre. He says that when the time comes, he will have three options, finish knocked out, in the hospital or in the cemetery. He also sends a message to Roman Reigns saying that he needed a lot of help to overcome Brock Lesnar when he only needs his two hands when suddenly the music of Karrion Kross sounds and c It’s Scarlett who steps into the ring facing Drew, who is then attacked by the Usos. Jimmy & Jey Usos face Scarlett and tell her that Karrion Kross has no chance against the Tribal Chief.

– A video on the prestige of the intercontinental title is broadcast much like what was done during WWE RAW for the United States title.

– Ivar enters, but is attacked from behind by Kofi Kingston. Ivar and Erik manage to gain the upper hand and destroy Kofi Kingston.

– Behind the scenes, Sami Zayn knocks on the door of Roman Reigns’ dressing room, who is not there tonight and it is the Usos who answer. Sami Zayn doesn’t have time to talk to them, as Drew McIntyre attacks them. Drew then pursues Sami Zayn.

– In the ring, we have Brandon Scott and Trevor Irvin who are two local wrestlers when suddenly the music of Hit Row sounds. Top Dolla, Ashantre Thee Adonis and B-Fab are back in WWE.

– In the ring, everything is ready for the contract signing between Liv Morgan and Shayna Baszler when suddenly Ronda Rousey comes out of the crowd with a bag. She says she shouldn’t be there, as she was suspended because of her actions at Summerslam. She says she got a big fine, but she doesn’t care, because being The Baddest has to be expensive and she can afford it. Security then attempts to escort Ronda Rousey, but they get sent flying with judo holds. Shayna Baszler then comes to meet Ronda Rousey telling her that it doesn’t work that way in WWE and that you have to follow the rules. Ronda says she knew her much less docile and leaves.

– Now that Shayna Baszler is in the ring, it’s Liv Morgan’s turn to enter. Shayna says she won a Gauntlet Match and beat every woman in the locker room, so Liv Morgan will be next on the list. Liv Morgan replies that she will not be able to beat her, because she is only a pale copy of Ronda Rousey. She beat Ronda twice and that will be the case with Shayna Baszler. Liv Morgan signs the contract then Shayna Baszler attacks her by attacking her arm. Shayna then wants to lift her up, but Liv Mogan counters her by knocking her through the table with some kind of Bulldog. Liv Morgan celebrates in the ring with her title.

– Behind the scenes, the Usos find Sami Zayn and ask him where he went when they are attacked by Drew McIntyre. Jimmy tells Sami that he’s going to have to prove he deserves to hang out with them and that he’s going to be dumped. Jey then tells Juimmy that it’s time to deal with Drew McIntyre.

– The Usos come to the ring and Jey asks Drew to find a partner.
