*LIVE COVERAGE*

The show begins with WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre coming down to the ring. McIntyre welcomes us to Monday Night RAW and says let's start the show off with a bang and tells Dolph Ziggler to come down to the ring and announce the stipulation for their WWE Title match at again renamed PPV, 'The Horror Show at Extreme Rules' in 2-weeks. Ziggler comes out and says he's keeping their match type a secret. The 2 begin to bicker and McIntyre says Ziggler needs to watch his mouth because he's the WWE Champion & Ziggler needs to remember that. Ziggler says he has a surprise for Drew and out comes Heath Slater (wearing a shirt that says 'free agent'). The recently released superstar gets into the ring and says he knows Drew better than anybody. He says he remembers when Drew first came to the states and was dubbed 'The Chosen One'...but he wasn't...and now he is. Slater says he was at home watching WrestleMania 36 with his family at home, back in April and when McIntyre hit Lesnar with the 'Claymore Kick' and got the 1-2-3 to become the WWE Champion...and he says he cried in pure joy to see his 'brother' fulfill his dreams. Slater then calls back to when McIntyre got released years ago, he was the first one to call Drew and take him to dinner to comfort him...but Drew hasn't even spoken to him in who knows how long. Slater says this is his final opportunity and he's here to TAKE this opportunity and he wants Drew to give him what he's deserved and what Drew promised him, as a friend. Drew looks hesitant to fight him, so Slater pushes him and slaps him in the face and asks 'what about now?'...Drew says 'you're on!' and it appears as if we have a match.

Mysterio accepts Rollins earlier challenge for a match at Extreme Rules in 2-weeks. Rollins mentions that they also have a tag-team match, slated for tonight...Rollins & Murphy against Mysterio and it was supposed to be Aleister Black but because of the earlier attack on Aleister, he's unable to compete, tonight...Owens offers his services as Mysterio's partner and says the whoever wins, should pick the stipulation for Rollins & Mysterio's match at Extreme Rules.

We then see MVP and Bobby Lashley making their way down to the ring. MVP says Apollo Crews was shining like a supernova when he first came to Monday Night RAW...but ever since he declined MVP's invite to be apart of his brand, he's crashed and burned just as quickly as he shined. MVP says since he defeated Apollo Crews, he's technically the new United State Champion. MVP then asks for a drum-roll and he unveils the new United States Championship title belt. MVP says he's going to beat Apollo Crews at 'The Horror Show at Extreme Rules' in 2-weeks so they can make the title switch official...Lashley says it's already official and puts the belt around MVP's waist. Cedric Alexander and Ricochet interrupt the celebration. Cedric says MVP should know more than anyone that to win a title in WWE, you must earn the opportunity at first...and Cedric and Ricochet attack MVP and Lashley out of nowhere as we head to a commercial break.
