Authors of Pain get a vignette of the same sort they’ve gotten for the past month and change, but this time it’s also about how Raw drafted them to keep them away from SmackDown and they’re going to dominate. The next chapter in Raw’s tag team division will be written in blood by AOP
Jerry “the King” Lawler is in the ring for the King’s Court.
He introduces Rusev as his guest, of course, before launching into his questions about the whole situation with Bobby Lashley and Lana and what Rusev is thinking. Rusev says it’s all Bob Lashley’s fault for poisoning Lana’s brain, and for that he will be crushed. As far as she goes, he may be a fool, but he still wears his wedding band because every day he hopes and he prays that they’re gonna pass through this into happily ever after.
Lashley appears on the tron out at a restaurant with Lana. He says he wishes he could be there to settle their differences, but he can’t because he’s not going to make the same mistake Rusev made, and that means taking care of her needs. She feeds him some dessert and then berates Rusev for not taking her to this restaurant.
The Bulgarian Brute has a message for them and he’d like to deliver it in person, because he knows exactly where they are

Street Profits are chatting backstage.
They run the OC down one by one before hyping their match up and announcing that it’s the main event tonight! Montez Ford asks Angelo Dawkins who their partner is, if it’s Ric Flair or Booker T or Kurt Angle, of whom it is none of those guys. The man in question doesn’t like AJ Styles and he’s just like them, so they want the smoke

Rusev busts into the restaurant and starts beating Lashley up.
Guards swarm him and pull him off of Lashley as Lana screams.
Rey Mysterio makes his entrance and gets in the ring for a promo.
He talks about how he’s been training with Cain Velasquez and getting him ready to win the WWE Championship from Brock Lesnar and he wanted to take a break to come here and thank everyone for the outpouring of love that he and his family have experienced.
Paul Heyman appears on the tron and says there’s been a misunderstanding and he wouldn’t be saying this if Brock was in the building. He talks about how much Brock has been salivating for a chance for revenge and Rey has served Cain up on a silver platter like dinner.
Rey cuts him off angrily and then gets cut off in turn–
Enter Shelton Benjamin.
He runs down what’s happened in the feud and asks if Cain is getting a title shot just because he showed up to defend Rey. Well, Brock Lesnar is an old friend of his and he’s his family, and nobody in WWE knocks Brock better than him. Shelton says he’s got it all figured out and he’s gonna test a theory and find out what happens if he pushes Mysterio around.
Beat up Rey Mysterio and get a title shot, that’s how it works, right? One shove US title, two shoves Intercontinental? He backs Rey into the corner and slaps him, asking where his buddy is now–
Enter Cain Velasquez.
Benjamin backs up as Cain makes his way to the ring but goes for the first shot once he enters. Velasquez blocks a leg pick, lifts him up and slams him down, punches to the ribs, waistlock takedown, Rear Naked Choke applied and he shoves Shelton out of the ring as he taps!
Backstage, Seth Rollins is interviewed.
He admits that maybe the Fiend has gotten inside his head, but maybe he got inside the Fiend’s head, huh, ever think about that? But no, the Fiend is different, he’s got an aura, and once you’ve stepped in the ring with him, you’re changed forever. He breaks the interview to go talk to Humberto Carrillo and talks down to him like he’s his damn dad or something, rambling about being champion meaning sometimes you have to do things you don’t want, like burn down fun houses.
And further he challenges him to his first match
