Tonight we have a WWE Universal Championship match. Last week Raw saw the first ever Universal Champion, Finn Balor, vacate the new belt after suffering a torn labrum, and then had a set of four matches where the winners would meet in a championship fatal four way for the vacated title this week. Big Cass vs. Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens. We also saw the main roster debut of former NXT Women's Champion, Bayley, as she beat Dana Brooke! No surprise after The Boss suffered an injury in her first title defense while losing to Charlotte at SummerSlam. I'm assuming we'll get an update of Finn Balor as he starts his road to recovery, and more about Brock Lesnar and his "punishment" for F5'ing SmackDown Commissioner and brother of his boss, Shane McMahon, at SummerSlam. Looking forward to a great championship match, and more from fan favorite Bayley!
PROMO (In-Ring): Corey Graves is with all four competitors in the fatal four way elimination match in the main event. Corey is cut off by Seth Rollins, and he says the real reason these guys are sitting out here tonight is.. Him. If it wasn't for him putting Balor on the shelf, then the championship wouldn't even be up for grabs. He says the whole world knows he is the top pick for tonight's match just like he was in the draft. He then generously gives his speaking time to someone in need.. Kevin Owens. KO sarcastically says it is an honor to be in a match with competitors like them, and Corey says that he wants his thoughts on the match. KO says with Sami out of the picture he can finally focus on what matters, and that is the WWE Universal Championship. He is a prize fighter and he is at the top of his game when the stakes are highest. He targets Seth, Roman, and Cass. Saying he's plain better than all of them. KO gives him credit for finally talking for himself and not letting Enzo do it for him. Cass says he knows where he stands. He's new, and hasn't won a title yet. But all that means he has nothing to lose and can surprise everyone. That he is the biggest dog in this fight, eyeing Roman. Then throws shade at Seth for his nude picture scandal saying "size does matter". Seth says he'll shove those words down his throat, send KO back to Y2J, and we all know what happens when its Seth vs. Roman.. Seth wins every time. He then tells Corey to ask Roman how he plans to beat Seth Rollins, and Roman answers with a huge punch to KO. The face off comes down to Big Cass and Roman until Rollins gets involved again. This all ends with a Superman Punch to Rollin from Roman.
PROMO (Backstage): Tom Phillips is with Y2J, and asked him why he got involved in Neville's qualifying match last week against KO. Y2J says he did it to help KO, and he is glad that Neville is fired up because he is going to embarrass him like his best friend KO did last week. Just like KO will embarrass everyone in the fatal four way tonight. Tonight, Neville gets the Gift of Jericho. Drink it in maaaaaaan.
MATCH: Chris Jericho vs. Neville
RESULTS: Chris Jericho wins via submission.
THOUGHTS: Arguably the greatest of all time, Chris Jericho is still putting on great matches. Neville had a good one even in losing, but man Jericho is still doing it at his age.
PROMO (Backstage): They show Bayley walking through the locker room earlier today hugging everyone and then talking to New Day until Dana comes in saying she is unprofessional and that she never will be successful. New Day says that she looked pretty good last week when she beat Dana. Dana then says that she might go get The Club, and they say that them and Bayley will fight them here tonight.
MATCH: Nia Jax vs. Someone from Houston, Texas
Yeah.. I didn't catch the young ladies name. But she got clobbered. I believe her name was Mya, but either way she got hit by a train.
RESULTS: Nia Jax wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: SQUASH MATCH
PROMO (Backstage): Gallows and Anderson talk about The Dudleyz retirement, and how they are dreaming of the days they were relevant. They then say that there is another team who should prepare for retirement, and that's The New Day. Them, alongside their nurse Dana Brooke, will put them there.
VIDEO PACKAGE: They play a video package of Seth Rollins and his road to the fatal four way tonight.
MATCH: Sami Zayn vs. Jinder Mahal
Sami still has a little bit of a limp from his injury on his ankle last week against Seth.
RESULTS: Sami Zayn wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Jinder Mahal doing Jinder Mahal things.
PROMO (Backstage): Lita interviewed Sasha Banks on the Raw pre-show, and she says that she knew she was in danger in that match but can't believe that "coward" Charlotte would purposely hurt her. There will be a brand new Boss when she returns.
MATCH: The Club & Dana Brooke vs. The New Day & Bayley
Charlotte is on commentary for this one.
Bayley pins Dana for the win.
RESULTS: The New Day & Bayley win via pinfall
THOUGHTS: I like the mix tag match coming back. Bayley vs. Charlotte at Clash of Champions?
PROMO (Backstage): Cesaro is asked about his second match in his best of seven series against Sheamus. He says that he can't fall behind 2-0 to Sheamus, and he wants that title match that GM Mick Foley promised to the winner.
VIDEO PACKAGE: They a play a video package of Big Cass leading up to his spot in the fatal four way for the WWE Universal Championship tonight.
MATCH: Sheamus vs. Cesaro
This is match #2 in the best of seven series between these two. Sheamus is currently up 1-0.
RESULTS: Sheamus wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: I'm praying that there will be stipulations like a no DQ match or something added to this. I don't want to watch five more of these. Sheamus up 2-0.
VIDEO PACKAGE: They play a video package of Mr. Fuji. The WWE Hall of Famer passed away. Thoughts and condolences go out to his family and loved ones!
VIDEO PACKAGE: They show a video package of Kevin Owens and his journey to the fatal four way elimination match for the WWE Universal Championship tonight.

Americos is a very small luchador decked out in America gear.
RESULTS: Braun Strowman wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: SQUASH MATCH. I'm excited to see Braun in a real match. Ripping off the luchadors mask after the match was perfect.
PROMO (In-Ring): Commissioner, Stephanie McMahon, has ordered Paul Heyman to come out and talk about what his beast did to her brother Shane at SummerSlam. She says that Brock crossed the line by putting his hands on an official and F5'ing her brother. She says that some people think she is okay with it since they are in competition, but no one messes with her family. Out comes Mr. Heyman, and Steph quickly says that he needs to get in the ring and apologize. Paul says that when Brock defeated Randy, it was a win for Raw over SmackDown. Raw won SummerSlam thanks to Brock Lesnar. Paul says that he gets it. Brock crossed a line, and he tried to stop it. Paul says he is here tonight to pay the $500 fine. He pulls out a wad of cash, and starts dropping 1's on the floor. Steph then hits the entire $500 in 1's on the floor. She says that Lesnar provides a service, but he does not. There is a storm coming for Heyman. Paul comes back by saying Lesnar is the storm. He says the apology he is delivering tonight is for Stephanie McMahon. He knows the position that his client put him in. She is in a rough spot with her father because she needs to prove she can control all stars on her roster, and this female empowerment movement. To which she says its a women's revolution and he is staring at it. Paul says he is staring at the heir to the boardroom, and the McMahon fortune. Paul begs she accepts this as a fine paid, and a lesson learned. An apology most sincerely delivered. She accepts the apology and storms out of the ring much to Heymans approval.
VIDEO PACKAGE: We get an update on Finn, who says he is ready for rehab. Sites set on the regaining of the WWE Universal Championship.

PROMO (Backstage): Mick tells Stephanie that he should've been out there with her when Paul was in the ring, and she says she can handle herself. Mick then says that he wants to ban all friends and tag team members from ringside tonight in the fatal four way. Stephanie agrees saying that this is the first Universal Championship match, even though its not, and that they need to retain its integrity. Then Seth comes in and says they've shared some great memories, but tonight will be the best one yet and hugs Stephanie.
