We’re live from Portland as Michael Cole welcomes us. He’s joined by Corey Graves and Byron Saxton.

We go right to the ring and RAW General Manager Mick Foley waits with RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon. The ring is set up for a contract signing. Foley welcomes us but he doesn’t seem happy. He hopes Triple H agrees with this because he does not. Foley welcomes Samoa Joe and out he comes in a suit.

Stephanie says Mick must be under the weather or something. She re-introduces Joe, calling him the hottest free agent of the new era. Stephanie hypes Joe up and he gets a mixed reaction. Stephanie wonders why Foley is against Joe coming in. Stephanie insults Foley again. Foley says he’s been a big fan of Joe, he just doesn’t agree with how he came in or the people he’s associating himself with. Stephanie steps to the side and Joe takes the mic.

Joe says it took him 18 years to be standing in this ring right now. Joe says in those 18 years, when Foley claims to be such a big fan, only one man opened the door and gave him an opportunity, and if loyalty to that man means coming out and putting Seth Rollins on the shelf – so be it. Joe puts the whole RAW locker room on notice: he will come out night after night, he will beat up our heroes, choke them out and beat them up again when they wake up. Joe says The Destroyer has arrived and there’s nothing we can do about it. Joe signs his RAW contract. Foley offers a handshake but the music hits and out comes Roman Reigns to a much more mixed reaction.

Reigns says Joe is out here talking tough and making threats. Reigns tells Joe to threaten him now that he’s out here. Reigns says they’ve never met. He formally introduces himself and says he’s the baddest man to step foot in WWE. The moment Joe signed his contract, he’s in Reigns’ yard. Reigns says Joe can either shut his mouth or get it caved in. Foley rants about how he’s still the General Manager and his loyalty is to the fans. Foley makes Joe vs. Reigns for tonight’s main event. Joe and Reigns face off as Stephanie gets in between them. Reigns’ music hits as Joe leaves first with Stephanie right beside him.

Joe beats Reigns to ringside and sends him into the barrier. Joe drops Reigns with a clothesline. Joe slams Reigns into the apron as the referee looks on from the ring. Joe continues the beatdown on Reigns and rolls into the ring to some boos.

Joe goes back outside and sends Reigns into the ring post. Joe with a senton on the floor. Joe re-enters the ring. The referee comes out to check on Reigns. Back to commercial.

Joe with a chop to the neck, kicks and an elbow drop for a 2 count. Joe keeps control and works Reigns around the ring. Joe keeps Reigns down with a knee to the spine now.

Reigns looks to make another comeback now. They trade shots in the middle of the ring. Reigns with strikes and headbutts. Reigns with a big clothesline off the ropes. More back and forth. Joe drops Reigns and hits another senton for a 2 count. Joe stalks Reigns into the corner and beats him around some more. Reigns catches Joe with a Samoan Drop out of nowhere. Reigns with a 2 count. Reigns readies for a Superman punch but Joe rolls to the floor. Reigns runs around and hits the Drive By. Reigns rolls Joe back into the ring and waits. Reigns nails a Superman punch. The music hits and out comes Braun Strowman to interrupt.

Reigns takes apart the steel steps and waits for Reigns to get up. Braun runs and smacks Reigns in the face with the steps. Braun yells and tosses the steps before going back after Reigns.

We are in Cleveland, Ohio and your announcers are Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves.

Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring and he is joined in the ring by the shark cage.

Roman says in six days the Royal Rumble rolls through the Alamodome and more than 40,000 people will be going nuts.  In the middle of that storm will be Chris Jericho locked in that shark cage.  That means that he is one on one with Kevin Owens.  That means he will be holding the WWE Universal Championship over his head.

Kevin Owens’ music interrupts and he makes his way to the ramp with Best friend Chris Jericho.

Kevin asks Roman if he is okay because he sounds delusional.  Maybe there is something that happened that has confused you. Last week, he did something that Roman had coming for a long time.  For years, you have been power bombing people through that announce table.  From Seth Rollins, to Kane, to John Cena, to Daniel Bryan, and even the Undertaker.  How many can say they single handedly power bombed Roman Reigns through that table.  The answer to that question is ONE.  Only one, and Kevin says he is the one.

Roman says that Kevin is about to be the one who is about to get his ass whipped in front of the world and his best friend.

Chris says that Roman is making a lot of predictions and he asks if Roman is Nostradamus.  He says that Roman is a stupid idiot. Chris says it is a laugh for Roman that he will be hanging above the ring like a salami in a deli.  What was hilarious was him hitting a Codebreaker a few weeks ago to become the United States Champion.  Chris says that even though he will be hanging above the ring at the Royal Rumble, today is not Sunday and nothing is stopping him from knocking those chiclets down your throat and teaching you another lesson.

Roman wants to know if Chris was giving him a rematch.  He says that Chris should teach him a lesson and give him a rematch tonight.

Kevin says he has this.  You want a United States title rematch tonight?  You got it.  Kevin tells Chris he is going to beat him.  He tells Roman not to plan any post match celebrations because Kevin says he has a strong feeling, maybe a psychic vision, that Roman Reigns will be in that shark cage.

Roman says he has a feeling that he is going to win the United States Title in Cleveland and he will beat Kevin at the Royal Rumble for the Universal Title.  He says he is something that Kevin will never be . . . THE GUY.

We go to commercial.

We get a look back at tonight’s RAW opening segment. Still to come, Reigns vs. Jericho for the WWE United States Title.

WWE United States Title Match: Roman Reigns vs. Chris Jericho

Back from the break and we see the shark cage hanging above the ring as WWE United States Champion Chris Jericho is out with Kevin Owens. Roman Reigns is out next to a very mixed reaction.

We get formal ring introductions from JoJo. Reigns strikes first and drops Jericho before tossing him outside. Reigns launches Jericho into the barrier. Reigns keeps control and nails a Drive By. Owens talks trash to Reigns as we go to commercial.

Back from the break and Jericho has taken control. Owens is now on commentary. Reigns finally makes a comeback and tosses Jericho to the apron. Jericho goes to the top and Reigns decks him. Jericho sends Reigns to the mat and comes off the top but gets caught with a right hand. Reigns keeps control but runs into a boot in the corner. Reigns blocks the bulldog. Jericho counters a Samoan Drop. Jericho mounts Reigns with right hands now. The referee warns him. Jericho stands tall but gets caught in a Samoan Drop for a 2 count.

Reigns goes for a Superman punch but Jericho dropkicks him for a 2 count. Reigns blocks a Codebreaker and a boot. Reigns with a sitdown powerbomb for a 2 count. Owens gets up and walks to the ring. Reigns drops Jericho with a Superman punch. Owens enters the ring and unloads on Reigns for the disqualification.

Winner by DQ: Roman Reigns

After the bell, Owens continues to pound on Reigns. Jericho recovers and stomps on Reigns as Owens calls for the shark cage to be lowered into the ring. Jericho puts Reigns in the cage as Owens locks the door. Jericho has the key. Reigns pulls Owens’ face into the cage and he goes down. Reigns does the same to Jericho. Reigns breaks out and puts Owens in the cage. Reigns locks the cage and it’s raised with Owens inside. Jericho grabs it and hangs on. Reigns knocks him off with a Superman punch. Owens yells as Reigns waits for Jericho to get up. Reigns nails a spear for a pop. Reigns’ music hits as he taunts Owens and we go to replays.

Back from the break and Jericho is finally getting Owens out of the shark cage. Charly Caruso enters and reveals that Mick Foley has added a No DQ stipulation to Sunday’s WWE Universal Title Match. Owens throws a fit before his music hits and he storms off with Jericho right behind him.

Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

We are in Washington, DC and your announcers are Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and John Layfield.

Roman says that he is proud to say that he is the United States Champion.  The real heroes and champions are all of you.  Roman says he wanted to kick off the show and say on behalf of everyone in the WWE . . . Thank You.

Kevin Owens interrupts and he makes his way to the stage.

Kevin tells Roman that what he just did was a classy move.  It is admirable to come out and thank everyone for their service.  Kevin says Roman forgot to thank one very important and special person . . . Kevin Owens.

Kevin says everyone should be thanking him for carrying Raw on his back every week and on top of that, being the longest reigning WWE Universal Champion in history.

Roman says Kevin just doesn’t get it.  It is not about Kevin.  It has never been about him.  It is about the men and women who serve this country and make this country great.

Kevin says that is the thing.  He is not from this country, Kevin says he is from Canada.  Kevin says it is always about him.  It is always the Kevin Owens Show.  It is because he is the WWE Universal Champion . . . BELIEVE THAT.

Roman says he won’t be champion for long.
Kevin corrects Roman and he says that Roman has no chance of leaving Roadblock as the Universal Champion.  Kevin says Roman is lucky the US title is not on the line because he would win that too, take it back to Canada, put a Maple Leaf on it and call the title the WWE Canadian Title.
Roman tells Kevin they don’t have to wait so why not throw it down right now.

Kevin makes his way to the ring and . . .

Rusev’s music plays and he makes his way to the stage with Lana.

Rusev says there is much worse things than being Canadian.  It is being from the USA.  Rusev says enough of this trash.  Rusev says he is here to talk about Bulgaria.  They have much better traditions, culture, and people than all of you.  Rusev says he is here to talk about his wife Lana.

Rusev kisses Lana.
Roman calls this pathetic and he wants a soldier to come down and show Rusev how to kiss like a real man.

Lana says it is a typical response from a pathetic American and this village.  Lana says everyone is jealous that no other man can have her.

Roman says it sucks for him.

Rusev says he is the greatest man on the planet.  It will suck for Roman because he will crush him like he crushed Enzo.

Roman says he is not going anywhere and if you want to do something about it, you and KO can do something about it.

Rusev goes to the ring with Owens and Reigns is alone in the ring until . . .
Enzo and Colin’s music plays and Colin Cassady comes to the ring to join forces with Roman.

Mick Foley comes out and says they should give everyone in the arena the match they deserve.  Mick says in the main event, it will be Rusev and Kevin Owens versus Roman Reigns and Colin Cassady.

We go to commercial.

The New Day talk about Cesaro and Sheamus on the same page.  Now they are starting to gel.  Kofi says they feel different since they became the longest reigning WWE Champions.  Big E says he feels a power flowing through his veins.  He is talking about history.  They may go down as the greatest . . . and most elite team of all time.

AJ Styles, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson show up.  AJ says they have a nice run as tag team champions, but the WWE Title stands for greatness.  Luke says they are not like you three nerds.  They are about being mean and making green.  Karl says they have done it all over the world.  AJ says they have done it with the Phenomenal One.  He says the discussion starts and ends with the Club.

We see The Shield on the other side of The New Day.

Seth asks if they heard that they are the greatest team of all time.  Dean asks if they believe that and Roman says nah.

Match Number Six:  Big Cass (with Enzo Amore) and Roman Reigns vs Kevin Owens and Rusev (with Lana)

Mick Foley makes his way to the ring.

Mick says last night, Raw had a hell of a night.  A new Cruiserweight Champion, a triple main event, and the first ever Hell in a Cell Match.  Mick says he is proud of everyone, except . . . Chris Jericho and his best friend the WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens.  While everything they did was ‘technically’ legal, it left a bad taste in Mick’s mouth.

Kevin Owens’ music plays and he walks to the ring with Chris Jericho.

Kevin asks Mick to elaborate about what left a bad taste in his mouth.  Is it that Kevin is still the champion, not Mick’s number one draft pick.  Maybe it is his best friend outsmarted you and everyone else to get in the cell?  Kevin says he knows what it is.  He says it is because Kevin was the one to make history because he STOLE THE SHOW in the main event.  He was the first to successfully defend the Universal title in Hell in a Cell.  Last night was the Kevin Owens Show whether you like it or not.

Chris says instead of chastizing them, you should be kissing his feet because he showed how a team works and how they can work for Team Raw.

Mick says he needs them to be on Team Raw.

Kevin repeats what Mick said and Kevin says that you do need them.  They are the top two guys on Raw.  He says it is killing Mick that he needs them.  He is jealous because last night, in his first Hell in a Cell match, he walked out a winner.  Mick made his name in Hell in a Cell matches as a loser.  Chris mentions that Mick lost 4 Hell in a Cell Matches.  Kevin points out that the last time Mick lost was . . .

Chris points out it was in Stinky Hartford, Connecticut.

Mick says that Kevin has the talent to win the match on his own. He walked out a winner, but he could have walked out a legend.  Mick says that Kevin made a mockery of the cell.

Chris asks if Mick is jealous because Chris locked the cell and twirled it around his finger.  Chris says it was the key of Jericho and he tells Mick to lock it in.

Mick says that you have to check your ego at the door.  Mick says that Stephanie did not want both of them . . . just Kevin. Stephanie wanted to suspend Chris on the spot.  If anyone was smart and devious enough to do what he did at Hell in a Cell, they can be devious and smart enough to win at Hell in a Cell.

Mick says he needs another guy, but not any guy . . . THE GUY.

Roman Reigns comes out and makes his way to the ring.

Roman wants to know why Kevin and Chris are not happy to see him and then he thanks Foley for having confidence in him. Roman calls Kevin and Chris Spongebob Square Pants and Patrick.

Chris says Roman isn’t wearing a costume and Roman says he would have been dressed as a stupid idiot, but there were no more Chris Jericho costumes.

Chris says that Roman knows what happens to people who insult him on Halloween . . . They don’t go on the list.  Roman does not deserve to be on the list.  No one tonight deserves to be on his list.  Chris says that Roman is not worthy of being United States Champion.  Chris says he is from Canada and he hates the United States but he would be a better US champion than Roman.

Kevin says Roman is 100% correct.

Chris says he could take that title from him if he wanted.  Chris says Roman is probably too beaten up after that match last night so you probably cannot compete.

Roman says his body is beaten up, but he would never pass up the opportunity to shut Chris’ mouth.

Mick makes that match official for tonight.
