Tonight's edition of Monday Night RAW is upon us and tonight's show features a pair of championship contract signing for the WWE Extreme Rules: The Horror Show PPV event in 3 weeks!
Before the show begins, let's take a look at what tonight has in-store for us!
- WWE and RAW Women's Championship Match, Contract Signings
- Will Seth Rollins Continue His Reign Of Terror Over The Mysterio Family?
All of that, plus much, much more, beginning at 8:00pm (Eastern)!
The show begins with Bayley & Sasha Banks attacking RAW Women’s Champion, Asuka. WWE officials come down to the ring and separate the 3 women.
Samoa Joe welcomes us to Monday Night RAW but Dolph Ziggler interrupts & makes his way down to the ring.
Dolph Ziggler then introduces the ‘ungrateful’, WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre.
Ziggler says while Drew was off doing whatever he was doing, Ziggler was carrying monsters like Drew on his back for the last 15 years. Ziggler says he created Drew...& at Extreme Rules...he’s going to destroy him.
Drew & Ziggler both sign the contract, making their WWE Championship match official for the Extreme Rules PPV event in 3 weeks.
Drew then has a few words for Ziggler. Drew says he figured out why Ziggler wants the title so bad...it’s because Ziggler’s never truly been the center of attention...every time he nearly gets over the hump...he fails. Drew says at Extreme Rules, he’s going to annihilate Ziggler. Drew says Ziggler can pick the stipulation for their match at the PPV. RAW Women’s Champion, Asuka then interrupts and starts yelling at Sasha Banks & Bayley, in Japanese. Asuka signs the contract and waves at Sasha Banks to do the same. Sasha says after Extreme Rules, she and Bayley will both have 2 belts and they’re going to take over the entire company. Asuka shoves the contract in Sasha’s face & the 3 begin brawling yet again. Drew & Ziggler also brawl for a minute before Ziggler rolls out of the ring and gets away as the segment ends.
We then see Tom Phillips and Byron Saxton at the commentary table who rundown the events of the evening. We see a video package of the Street Profits, successfully defending their RAW Tag-Team Championships, last week against the Viking Raiders & after that match, Andrade & Angel Garza attacked both teams which set up tonight’s match between Andrade & Angel Garza against the Viking Raiders.
Backstage, we see Andrade & Angel Garza, along with Zelina Vega being interviewed and before they can really say anything, Big Show comes into the camera and says he needs to excuse himself because he has some words for Randy Orton as we head to a commercial break.
After the break, Big Show is in the ring and calls out for Randy Orton to come down to the ring but Andrade, Angel Garza & Zelina Vega are out here and they laugh at anyone who calls Big Show a legend and as Andrade & Garza surround the ring, Zelina says they’re about to do ‘The Legend Killer’, Randy Orton a favor & take out Big Show before Orton even gets his hands on him. Ric Flair then comes out and says Orton will come out when he feels like it...& when he does, he will end Big Show with those 3 famous letters...R-K-O. Flair tells Zelina, Andrade & Garza to have some fun at Big Show’s expense and Flair heads backstage. Before Andrade & Garza can attack Big Show, the Viking Raiders come out and attack the guys that they’re scheduled to face, later tonight in Andrade and Garza as we head to another commercial break.
Back from the break and before this tag-team match officially begins, it’s announced that the main event of the evening will be a ‘Champions vs Challengers’ Mixed Tag-Team Match between WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre who teams up with RAW Women’s Champion, Asuka against their challengers for Extreme Rules: The Horror Show, Dolph Ziggler & Sasha Banks.

Back from a commercial break and Seth Rollins is on his way down to the ring being flanked by Murphy. We then see a video package of what’s transpired between Rollins, Rey Mysterio and Rey’s son, Dominik over the past several weeks.
Back to Rollins in the ring & Rollins says, last week, Rey & Dominik made a heartfelt effort to get revenge on Rollins. Seth says Rey hasn’t been able to ‘see things very clearly, recently’ (playing off of the eye injury, Rollins caused Rey a few weeks back). Rollins goes on to ask Rey to forgive him. Seth says not for what he’s doing to him in the past, but for what he’s about to do to him in the future. Rollins says he’s the Monday Night Messiah and Rey must be a sacrifice for the greater good. Seth says every single time Rey steps into the ring from now on, he will take a piece of Rey away until there’s nothing left. Rey appears on the big screen with his son, Dominik. Rey asks Rollins for forgiveness but not to Seth, to his son, Dominik for what he will have to witness Rey do you Seth. Rey reiterates it’ll be an eye for an eye. Dominik says he forgives his father...but not Seth. Dominik says Seth won’t forget what his father will do to Seth. Rollins says Dominik needs to be careful what he wishes for & if Rey stands in the way of fate, he will be forced to end Rey’s career. Aleister Black & Humberto Carrillo come down to the ring and it looks like after a quick break, we’ll see a tag-team match between the 2 and Rollins & Murphy.
