Winner: Bobby Lashley

Paul Heyman walks into Nick Aldis’ office and asked if he invited Randy Orton to Smackdown and Aldis said he did. Heyman asked if his Tribal Chief knew about that, and he said I have a memo here that all communication with Roman Reigns has to go through Paul Heyman so let this be your communication about this. Aldis goes on to say he intends to sign Randy Orton to a Smackdown exclusive deal and if he has to offer up the entire Bloodline to do it that is exactly what he is going to do his question to Heyman is what are you going to do about it?

Heyman thinks for a moment then looks and Aldis and says anything it takes.

Kayla Braxton finds Butch and asked him about Ridge walking out on him last week and Butch said he needs to focus on himself and Pretty Deadly comes in and says his career is dead and he attacked them until Pretty Deadly left him lying in the backstage area.

Paul said there is going to be a tournament starting next week to determine a Number 1 contender and it will feature, Santos Escobar, Dragon Lee, Karrion Kross, Bobby Lashley, Grayson Waller, Austin Theory, an NXT Superstar and Kevin Owens. Owens then makes his way to the ring.

Owens tells Paul in his ring is a complete nightmare and he first saw him 10 years ago on that app. And he knew then he was an unbearable jackass. Waller and Theory come out and Waller says Paul doesn’t need to engage with Owens. Theory started talking about Owens not being able to punch anyone in the face again and Owens punches him in the face and knocks him down as Paul and Owens in the ring with a stare down as we cut to break.

Bayley comes out after the rest of Damage Control had told her to stay in the back for this match and pulls Bianca down by her hair and Kairi goes to the top for the elbow, but Bianca recovers and stops her and pulls her from the top rope onto her shoulders and hits the KOD and gets the win.

Winner: Bianca Belair

Adam Pearce and Nick Aldis are in the ring and Nick Aldis introduces Randy Orton. Pearce tells Randy he deserves to be on Monday Night Raw and if he signs his contract, he will give him the winner of Jey Uso vs. Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Title. Aldis says if you sing with Smackdown I will give you the guys that that took you out.

Heyman comes out and says the Bloodline will make the decision for you. Solo and Jimmy Uso came out. As they double team Randy, LA Knight comes out to help Randy. Knight fights with Solo to the back and Orton grabs Jimmy and gives him a DDT. As Jimmy gets up Randy hits him with an RKO. Randy walks over and grabs both contracts and Heyman yells go to Raw you’re safe on Raw. Randy throws the Raw contract out of the ring and signs with Smackdown.
