Another announcement made during the show was that we would see the return of Rey Mysterio inside the ring to fight with Murphy and Seth Rollins and have Aleister Black as well at his side.

This time WWE opened up a new title design, and we saw one injured Superstar return to the RAW. There was a massive match between Randy Orton and Big Show, and Rey Mysterio was seen teaming up with the former Universal Champion on Monday nights RAW.
Drew McIntyre entered and announced that Dolph Ziggler might throw any stipulation at him for the upcoming PPV event. He will be coming out as the winner before Dolph Ziggler can even tell the stipulation. Dolph Ziggler came and answered by saying that Drew McIntyre has made things rough between them by offering him the upper hand. Now he does not have any plans to reveal the stipulation before the PPV event.
A few months back, Slater was released from WWE. Now he wanted to have a match with Drew McIntyre on RAW. Initially, Drew didn’t agree, but he finally decided for the match when Slater hit him.

After a big move, Kairi was down. At the ringside, Bayley was mocking at Asuka, and then Sasha also joined. Asuka then stacked both of them out of the ring so that Sane can go for hitting a baseball slide from the ring on them.
After the break, Sasha Banks proceeded for the double knees. Kairi went to get a cover. Bayley rushed inside and attempted to break the move, which made Sasha Banks disqualify on RAW.

We had Nikki Cross at RAW in the commentary this time. Early on in the match, Bayley enters, and she sends Nikki to the number of security guys who took her away. Asuka used this opportunity to her benefit, and she hits a massive kick on Bayley, who was still at the ringside.
As we return to the RAW, we see that Asuka was hitting a superkick after Bayley and Shasha Banks started to yell about Sane from the ringside. Asuka keeps the assault inside the ring alive, and Bayley was struggling to hold a breather before she made use of ropes for hurting Asuka.
Asuka was moved outside and then sent to the announcement table before joining the announcers. RAW champion was getting taunts from Bayley as the break was over, and we returned to the RAW. Asuka replied to this with a codebreaker to face.
Bayley then caught a backfist, and then hip attack on the apron. Before being moved to the ring post, Asuka hits a dropkick from the top of the rope. On Sane, Bayley hits a shot. Sasha Banks then kicked Asuka from the apron.
