Karrion Kross talks and says must be nice for Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns as they are the chosen ones. He said they were cast out of paradise and disregarded like a broken toy to be forgotten about but they didn’t forget and waited for the right time to strike. Kross continued saying that now they are going to show them the new timeline because in the end, everyone pays the toll. Tick Tok.

Drew McIntyre is out next and says it’s an exciting time in WWE with a lot of new faces. Speaking of new faces, he addressed Karrion Kross who attacked him last week. Drew said he plans to do a lot of things, but his hands are full right now but when he is done, he will send him back to the dungeon Kross crawled out of.

Drew then went on to say Roman Reigns isn’t here and he wasn’t impressed with his last two matches with Brock Lesnar because it took Reigns and his family to beat Lesnar. Kross’ music hits and Scarlett came out and as Drew was distracted, he gets jumped by the Usos. After they beat down Drew they yelled at Scarlett and said they are going to beat down Kross for stepping up to the Tribal Chief.

Ivar VS. Kofi Kingston

As the Vikings were coming to the ring, Kofi Kingston attacked them with a kendo stick, but the Vikings rebounded and used their shields to stop the ambush and beat Kofi with the shields. They left Kofi laying and Ivar added a splash on the stage as the Vikings then walk away.

Winner: No Match

Back from break, Sami Zayn walked up and knocked on the Usos dressing room and as he started talking to them, Drew came flying in and beat all three of them and left them laying. Drew says he is tired of them getting involved in his business every week.

Brandon Scott & Trevor Irvin VS. Hit Row with B Fab

Hit Row destroys the local talent. Hit the Heavy Hitter on Scott for the win.

Winners: Hit Row

After the match we turn to Pat McAfee and Michael Cole. After Pat gets done saying how nice it is to have Hit Row back, Cole looked at him and said this week we morn the loss of a legend, Gene LeBell, who passed away this week. LeBell trained Roddy Piper and Ronda Rousey to name a few and was called the Grandfather of Grappling.

They are getting ready for the contract signing for the Smackdown Women’s championship match at Clash at the Castle. Ronda Rousey comes through the crowd and gets in the ring. She says she was suspended and fined a lot of money and dumped a duffle bag of money out in the ring. She said she doubled it because it won’t be the last time and being bad gets expensive. They send security out for Rousey.

Shayna Baszler meets her on the ramp and tells Rousey that’s not how we do things here and Ronda said something to her and walked away. Shayna heads to the ring for the contract signing.

After the signing, Shayna grabs Liv’s already injured arm and did more damage to it. As Shayna was going for another maneuver, Liv hooked Shayna by her head and was able to push her feet off the top rope and bulldogs Shayna through the table in the middle of the ring.

In the back, Sami Zayn is pacing and The Usos ask him where he ran off to. Zayn says he went to get security. Usos remind him to either step up or get left behind.

The Usos come out and told Drew to find a tag partner and come get this ass whoopin! Drew comes to the ring. And the bell rings with no partner for Drew.

The Usos VS. Drew McIntyre & Madcap Moss

As the Usos start beating down Drew, out comes Madcap Moss and Drew gets to his feet and they look at each other then knock the Usos over the top rope with clotheslines.

The Usos go for the 1D and Madcap Moss pulls Jey out of the ring, and they end up both going over the railing by the timekeeper’s area. Back inside the ring Jimmy and Drew are going at it and Jimmy gives him a superkick which knocks Drew to the ropes. He ducks and off the other side of ropes hits the Claymore for the win.

Winners: Drew McIntyre & Madcap Moss

After the match, Jey tried to attack Drew and Sami Zayn came in and Jey pulls him into the line for the Claymore.

Max Dupri is with the Maximum Male Models when the Los Lotharios come in and tells Dupri if you want this to really take off you will sign them. Max tells them they are not MMM material.
