Mick Foley is in the ring and he is going to address what happened in the best of 7 final match from last night.
Mick- Last night Sheamus and Cesaro had a thrilling match, but was stopped due to a medical stoppage. Their best of 7 ended up in a draw. I'd like to bring both men out here at this time. First, Sheamus. And Cesaro.
Sheamus- Mick how is this even a discussion. You said that the man who was more physically dominant would be declared the winner. Right?
Sheamus- I'm talking Foley! You told both of us. The truth of the matter is we beat the hell out of each other. I didn't come here for a wishy washy answer. If I wasn't more physically dominant, I don't know what you were watching.
Cesaro- As far as I remember, last night I was standing in this ring ready to fight while you ran away.
Sheamus- The way I remember it was, I was dragged out by 4 people.
Cesaro- Why weren't you in the ring?!
Sheamus- You know that's easy to say when you didn't have anyone dragging you away! Let me make one thing perfectly clear, I'm better than you and I'm through with you!
Cesaro- I'm through with you! I am better than you!
Mick- SHEAMUS IS RIGHT! And so are you Cesaro. You're both right. You both proved you can be physically dominant. You brought out the best in each other. No man was the winner or the loser. I've decided to grant you both championship opportunities. You have to share it. You two will get a chance at the Tag Team Championships. If you decide you want to do it, you'll face the winner of this match...

Charlotte- You know Clash of Champions was once again my night! I once again defended the Raw Women's Championship and proved why I'm the Queen of Raw's Womens Division. I defeated two of the greatest Women in WWE today. That's the difference between me and Bayley or me and Sasha. I don't just talk the talk I walk the walk. I know you all are thinking you've heard this before. That's because every few months a new competitor pops up and everyone thinks this will be the woman to dethrone me. It never happens. I'm not the face of NXT, I'm not the internet darling, I'm just the best.
Sasha's music cuts her off- Hold on Booboo. Last night may have been your night but that is still my title.
Charlotte- Then why is it around MY waist.
Sasha- Don't interrupt. You pinned Bayley, not me. I'm still owed my 1 on 1 rematch and I want it right now!
Charlotte- Be quiet peasants. Listen Sasha, you're a living legend in your own mind, but as good as you think you are, I'm that much better. You have earned it, and I'll give these people what they want. I'll even give you what you want, I'll give you your title match.....NEXT WEEK. Because if I didn't, you'd boohoo all the way to Mick Foley like a dog until you got your way. I'll give it to Sasha, as much as I've embarrassed her and beat her, Sasha keeps getting back up. Next week, you're going to stay down!
Sasha- I'll show YOU why I'm going to be the face of the Women's division when I beat you for that Championship!
Sasha cheapshots Charlotte and then hits the Banks Statement on Dana Brooke. Sasha throws both women out of the ring.
Seth Rollins is shown walking backstage. Mick Foley catches up with him and tells him not go out there. Seth tells him he owes Owens something. He saw Stephanie get into the limo with Triple H last night. He knows what's going on. He hears Mick talking but all he can hear is Stephanie's words.

The Highlight Reel
Jericho- Quiet. Quiet. Quiet quiet quiet quiet quiet! Tonight is the most anticipated highlight reel in WWE history. First I want to address Ashton Kutcher and Danny whatshisname. How dare you imply you're better than me and Kevin Owens. If you do decide to show up to Raw next week, I'm going to put you two on the list of Jericho. When I do you're not going to like.........IT! Alright lets get down to the best part of the show...hey I told you to shoot me from the left side. You just made the list! You know who else is on the list, you stupid idiots?! Seth Rollins. You know why because Seth got hurt AGAIN. I've been in the WWE for 17 years and I've never been hurt. Seth has been here like a year and a half and he's on the injured list AGAIN. The man who put him there is my guest, my best friend, the longest reigning WWE Universal Champion in history, KEVIN OWENS!
Owens- This is nice. That's a very expensive TV.
Jericho- A wise man once said, people are lead to believe mediocrity was excellence. It was me. But last night you showed what a champion really should be.
Owens- Thanks, Chris, let me address something first. Normally I'd be out here in a suit, but let's face it, this is Ohio. I wouldn't be cheering that, and I'm not wearing a suit for a city that spawned a living breathing car wreck like Dean Ambrose. Now let's talk about last night. Let's talk about how I proved to the world that I am exactly what I say I am. I proved that I should have been the #1 pick in the draft. I don't only belong in the main event, I AM the main event! I AM THE MAN! Not only did I beat Seth Rollins and retain my championship, but like Chris said, I hurt Seth Rollins! Don't feel bad for little Seth, what happened was karma. Seth walked around saying he was the man. Look at the list of people Seth injured, John Cena, Sting, Finn Balor. Seth Rollins might have been the most dangerous man in WWE. I took him out so what does that make me? The most dangerous man in WWE.
Seth Rollins's music hits and he makes his way out but a group of security guards runs out and stops him from getting in the ring. Mick Foley walks out too.
Owens- Foley don't listen to these people, they're stupid idiots. Don't let them fight, get him out of here. Go Redesign, Rebuild, Recapture your couch buddy!
Security gets Rollins to the back.
Jericho- Didn't like that did you?! You thought Seth was going to come and beat us up didn't you!
Enzo and Cass's music hits!
Enzo- My name is Enzo Amore and I am a certified G and a bonafide stud and you can't teach that! And this right here is Big Cass and he's 7-feet tall! And you can't teach that! Badaboom! Realist guys in the room! How you doin!
Jericho- I got this Kev. We're doing just fine. Why wouldn't we be. We're best friends. We're the WWE Universal Champion. We were great until you came down. So you know what ...you're on the list!
Owens- It's Enzo, you wrote Ezzo. And two S's in Cass.
Enzo- So you're making a list and checking it twice, for spelling errors, who does this guy think he is.
Cass- Who are you Santa Claus?
Jericho- Maybe I am! Maybe I'll come down there and sit on your lap!
Cass- What did you just say!?
Jericho- I didn't say anything.
Cass- No you did, repeat it.
Jericho- Nope, didn't say anything.
Cass- You said you were going to sit on my lap.
Jericho- No I didn't.
Cass- Besides that you said you'd sit on my lap and kids sit on Santa's lap, it doesn't matter. You said you were gonna sit on my lap.
Jericho- Nope, I said I was I was gonna punch you in the face.
Cass- You definitely didn't. I'll prove it. Did Jericho say he was going to sit on my lap? *Yes Chants*
Owens- It doesn't matter, I'll punch you in the face!
Jericho- Yeah, we both will! Unfortunately we don't have a match with you tonight so maybe another time.
Cass- Funny you say that, because we just passed Mick Foley in back and he told us we do have a match!
