The new World Champion Seth “Freakin” Rollins is introduced first and he said it’s been over 2 years since there has been a world championship match on Monday Night Raw. So he went online to put out an open challenge and Damian Priest answered the challenge and whether you like them or not, they are dangerous.

Damian Priest and Finn Balor come out. Damian tells Seth he is a deserving champion, but he doesn’t need Dom, Rhea, or Finn to beat him. Seth says why don’t you put your money where your mouth is and leave your crew in the back. Finn started complaining but Damian says hold on I am fine with it because at the end of the night I will be the new World Champion and your reign will be short-lived. Seth goes I am fine with that because my reign is already longer than his, pointing at Finn. Finn drops his head.
