Introduction Segment: Video Promos and Welcoming

A recap of last week’s Raw with Universal Champion Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, United States Champion Roman Reigns, and Seth Rollins is shown; the regular Raw video plays, and the pyro explodes in the arena of Glasgow, Scotland!

Segment #2: Arena Promo

Commissioner Stephanie McMahon starts off by saying that General Manager Mick Foley is not here but she gives him props. She then brings out the five wrestlers who are a part of Team Raw for Survivor Series – Universal Champion Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, United States Champion Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, and …..

Seth Rollins!

Owens disputes the last man, but Rollins fires back. Stephanie interjects and goes on a tirade about Raw needing to win, and insinuates they have to win to keep employment with Raw. Kevin and Chris try to convince Seth, Braun, and Roman that they are all on the same team but that Owens and Jericho themselves are “co-captains.”

Rollins concurs that he understands, and then slugs Jericho! All brawl, with Strowman standing tall in the ring after tackling Seth and slamming Chris! He hops off of the apron and stares at Reigns; Stephanie walks back out and announces a Fatal-Five-Way Match for tonight with all the Team Raw participants!

Later tonight, Tag-Team Champions The New Day will talk to their teammates for the Raw VS. Smackdown Tag-Team Match at Survivor Series. As well, Michael Cole will reveal the last two Women on their Survivor Series team.

Cruiserweight Champion Brian Kendrick is walking through the back, and he will be teaming with a new wrestler, next!

Brian is ripping at Sin’s face and tags in Dar. Noam is back in control, backdropping Cara and wrenching Sin’s neck. Cara reverses a run into a roll-up with a powerbomb! Both make the tag, and it is Swann who controls. He clotheslines Kendrick a couple of times and then spin-kicks him, and hops on his back with double-boots. He rockets Brian off of the top turnbuckle with a hurricanrana and follows with a rolling-splash for a near-fall!

Sin tumbles Dar to the outside and then slingshot-sentons onto him! In the ring, Rich runs and victory-rolls Kendrick to receive the victory!
