Buffalo, New York
Commentary Team: Tom Phillips, Renee Young, Aiden English & Pat McAfee
Tonight’s commentary team of Tom Phillips, Aiden English, and Renee Young explain WWE’s travel woes to us.
Brock Lesnar makes his entrance, flanked by Paul Heyman as always.
Heyman begins with his usual schtick and offers to shed his brilliance on our ignorance. He says the only way to describe his client’s mood tonight is to educate us as to how he’s really, really pissed off. He talks about how Brock conquered Cain Velasquez they show the entire match and Mysterio attacking Brock afterward and the brawl that ensued between Rey & Brock
Paul E continues, saying there’s a real problem here, and he and Brock went to Vince McMahon demanding a match against Rey Mysterio. Vince said he can’t do that, and why? Because of the hard brand split. And well, if Rey Mysterio can’t come to SmackDown, then as of this Monday, Brock Lesnar is going to come to Raw, and if anybody, a network, a chairman of the board, WWE itself, has a problem with that, what the hell are you gonna do about it?
To get rid of the formalities, Brock Lesnar hereby quits Friday Night SmackDown! He’s showing up Monday on Raw and going hunting for Rey Mysterio
Heyman and Lesnar are shown leaving in the back as Triple H and Shawn Michaels look on

Backstage, Sami Zayn is interviewed.
He says fair play to NXT, but they have to watch where they stick their nose, because if one of them steps to him, it’s gonna be bad news for–
ENTER MATT RIDDLE AND KEITH LEE!
Zayn immediately changes gears to fawn over them and talks about how much he loved NXT in his time on the brand. He goes for a big t-shirt reveal but he’s just wearing a plain black shirt and claims he was eating a salad, so he’s gonna go to his car and get the t-shirt. Don’t follow him!
He leaves and of course, they follow and Sami relents, inviting them to escort him before breaking and doing a sharp right turn away from them! He runs out of Gorilla and through the entrance, chased by Lee and Riddle! The King of Bros catches up to him and throws him in the ring!

Miz makes his entrance.
He talks up Bray Wyatt as being his guest, hypothetically, and we get a recap package covering his title match last night. After, Miz says Bray can’t be here today but he wants to talk about the elephant in the room, which is to say NXT. He recounts tonight’s NXT invasion–
Enter Tommaso Ciampa!
He introduces himself and says he just happens to be the greatest sports entertainer of all time. Miz acts like the entire world revolves around him and it’s time somebody gave him a reality check. Fact is, Miz is everything that is wrong with Raw and SmackDown, while he’s out there breaking his neck to prove he’s the greatest, Miz is out here playing talk show host?
Miz plays the part, Ciampa is the part. The A-Lister says he knows who Ciampa is and people always say they want to see them fight on the mic but he was hoping Tommaso would bring something more original. If he was acting for 15 years, he deserves a freakin’ Oscar! And if Ciampa is here to make a statement, MAKE the damn statement!
The Sicilian Psychopath says that sounds like fighting words and Miz wants to make it happen right here, right now!

Daniel Bryan is shown walking backstage.
He runs into Triple H and Shawn Michaels and asks what they’re doing here. Hunter says they’re visiting because they kinda got called out looking for a fight when an advertisement for Raw vs. SmackDown vs. NXT played at Crown Jewel. Bryan says he’s kinda looking for a fight, and if Trips is looking for a fight, why not the two of them fight right now? HHH gets in his face and demures, saying he didn’t really bring his gear and he doesn’t like to fight in a suit so he’s not looking for a fight but he knows somebody who is.

Roderick Strong comes down to raise his boys hand as the rest of the NXT stars that appeared tonight, as well as some extras like Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott and Lio Rush.
Triple H gets in the ring with his kids and gets on the mic, saying if you wanted to call down the thunder then they’ve got it, they want to pick a fight they’ve got it, and Survivor Series is Raw vs. SmackDown vs. NXT. Well if they’re going to have a fight then he needs an army, so he looked to his blood (HBK) and to his family (NXT talent) and built one. This is his army, this is their fight, this is their ring, and at Survivor Series, know what you’re getting into– NXT have fired the first shot.
He asks Raw and SmackDown to show him what they’ve got and to remember just one thing– THEY are NXT.
