Brock Lesnar is scheduled to make a rare appearance ahead of his match with Samoa Joe, a Women's competitor is set to return, and Amore and Cass's attacker may be revealed on tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw.

VIDEO PACKAGE: A video promo airs about Samoa Joe's promo on Brock Lesnar last week on Raw and his brutal attack on Paul Heyman. There is also a flashback at the Extreme Rules match to determine the new #1 Contender to Lesnar's title.

PROMO (In-Ring): After months of  anticipation, Brock Lesnar makes his return to Raw. He is accompanied by Heyman. Heyman states he is here to unleash The Beast. He says he feels betrayed after being "lured" into Joe's trap and for being attacked. Brock Lesnar now has a problem with Samoa Joe and it will be solved by The Beast himself. Heyman calls out Joe's Samoan heritage and that his family is disgraced for his antics and cheap shots. Joe is given credit for his brutal Coquian Clutch and its power, but he will never be man enough to lock it in on Lesnar. Joe's music hits and he makes eye contact with Lesnar on his way to the ring. The two stare each other down. Joe pushes Lesnar and starts pummeling him. Lesnar backs Joe into a corner and the two are separated. Security is tossed aside as Joe takes down Lesnar. The entire locker room are called in to separate them, backing them into opposite corners. Even they cannot hold them back as the action spills outside the ring. Joe is finally escorted up the ramp and away from Brock.

The Raw Tag Team Championship 2 out of 3 falls is advertised next. MITB is also advertised.

*Commercial Break*

The interaction earlier from Joe and Lesnar is replayed after the break.

PROMO (In-Ring): Elias Samson is introduced to a roar of boos and jeers. He asks for all applause to be held until the end of his performance. His song about Louisiana being a laughing stock of the USA and takes a shot at Dean Ambrose is not received well, especially as Dean Ambrose's music hits and stops the concert.

The Miz's celebration disaster from last week is replayed prior to Ambrose's match with Elias.

MATCH: Dean Ambrose vs Elias Samson

As the bell rings, the two stare each other down. The crowd is cheering on Ambrose. Samson gets Dean in a corner and the two counter each other. Ambrose starts working on Samson's arm. Elias breaks out and is floored with a spinning elbow and a chop to the chest. Elias is sent outside the ring as we go to a break.

*Commercial Break*

Back from the break, both men are back in the ring and Dean is pummeling Samson. A clothesline from Samson changes the momentum. Ambrose is attacked in the corner and worn down in the middle of the ring. The Lunatic struggles to fight off the chin lock. He finally gets out of it and the two men trade hard chops to the chest. Ambrose ducks a clothesline and delivers one of his own. A fisherman's suplex from Dean gets a two-count. Samson counters the Bulldog, but eats a Suicide Dive on the outside. Dean goes to the top rope, but Samson goes up with him. However, he cannot get Dean to budge and Ambrose headbutts Elias off and he falls to the mat. The Miz interferes and Samson goes for a roll-up for a two-count. Another clothesline drops Elias as Miz is stunned that Elias couldn't capitalize on the distraction. The Miz uses Maryse as a shield from Dean, but ends up getting tossed into the barricade anyways. The Miz is forced to coward away and Dean is nearly counted out. Samson finally gains the upper hand from the distraction and Samson pins Ambrose after a knee to the head and a swinging neckbreaker.

RESULT: Elias Samson wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: This was Samson's longest match to date and has proven that he is worth something if he is given the time. The three-way feud for the Intercontinental Championship could actually be quite a wild ride.

The Raw Tag Team Championship 2 out of 3 falls match is hyped up.

*Commercial Break*

VIDEO PACKAGE: Goldust cuts a promo and quotes The Godfather line about keeping your friends close and enemies closer. He states that R-Truth or anyone never understood him and feels he makes everyone "uncomfortable". He promises the Golden Age is back once more.

PROMO (Backstage): The Miz is stopped by Kurt Angle and reprimanded. The Miz defends himself after Ambrose crashed his party last week. The Miz takes a shot at Angle because he couldn't do his job and keep Ambrose out of the way. He tells Angle to yell at Dean, not him. Kurt says he will do nothing about Ambrose and that The Miz should handle it himself.

VIDEO PACKAGE: A video promo airs and showcases Cedric Alexander and his highlights/

PROMO (Backstage): Backstage, Cedric Alexander tells Noam Dar that he is done with him and his "ratchet" ex Alicia Fox and all of the nonsense involved. Dar comforts an injured Alicia Fox via Skpye on his phone.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Cedric Alexander vs Noam Dar

Alicia Fox berates Noam over the phone as he makes his way to the ring and distracts him from entering the ring for the match. The referee starts the match with Dar distracted anyway after warning him. Cedric lands a Lumbar Check for a quick pin. Alicia Fox still berates Noam as he is in pain on the mat.

RESULT: Cedric Alexander wins via pinfallg
THOUGHTS: WWE is killing the cruiserweight division's potential with ridiculous segments and three second matches. After this promo, it is safe to say that Alicia Fox's "push" was a fluke. Cedric should be given longer matches to showoff his skills.

The Raw Tag Team Championship 2 out of 3 falls match is hyped up again. Bray Wyatt is advertised next.

*Commercial Break*

VIDEO PACKAGE: A video promo airs about Roman Reigns and his highlights over the last few months. He is advertised for next week on Raw for a big SummerSlam announcement.

PROMO (In-Ring): The fireflies are out as Bray Wyatt comes to the ring. Once again, he vows that those who deny him will pay for overlooking him. He calls out Seth Rollins for calling him out last week. He says it only took one dose of truth from Wyatt's own mouth to "shatter Rollin's glass house". If Rollins takes him name in vain again, then he will fall. Seth Rollins's music hits to interrupt the promo to a big pop from the WWE Universe. Rollins clarifies to the WWE Universe that Wyatt cost Seth his match with Samoa Joe for a few name callings and calls him out on it. He also calls out Wyatt for "drinking his own Kol-Aid" and for being a coward in the darkness. He dares Wyatt to prove him wrong and braces for a fight. Bray counters back by calling Seth a man beneath Bray himself and warns Rollins for wanting to fight him. The arena goes dark and Bray vanishes. He appears backstage on the big screen. He credits for being able to slay a king, but he cannot kill a god such as himself.

PROMO (Backstage): Backstage, The Hardy Boyz are interviewed about their rematch. The brothers talk up their opponents, but vow they will climb this obstacle and "jump off of it".

John Cena is advertised to return on the July 4th edition of SmackDown Live.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Kalisto vs Apollo Crews w/ Titus O'Neil

Akira Towaza is sitting front row as a prospect for Titus O'Neil's brand. Kalisto starts the match by dominating Crews, but Crews goes for an early pin. He goes for another early pin. He begins to wear down Kalisto. Kalisto fights back and drops Crews hard. Crews kicks out of a pin attempt. Titus tries to hype up Crews. Kalisto eats a spinning powerbomb and is pinned. Titus tosses Towaza out of his seat and into the ring to celebrate against his will in the ring and pose for a selfie.

RESULT: Apollo Crews wins via pinfall
THOUGHTS: At least the Titus Brand gets a win. However, the addition of Towaza does not look promising for anyone involved in that mess. The feud with Kalisto has been stale for so long.

PROMO (Backstage): Backstage, The Miz gives Heath Slater an opportunity of a lifetime. He extends an invitaion to join his entourage. He talks up making Slater a star in their latest movie together. Heath says that he would accept, but he wants to be the new Intercontinental Champion. The Miz promises a title match "someday". Rhyno says he already has a partner and tells The Miz to run off or else he will find Kurt Angle to book a match.

PROMO (In-Ring): Last week's match against Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax is replayed as Bliss comes to the ring. In the ring, Bliss brags about her Extreme Rules victory. She is displeased about having to defend the title again last week on Raw. She is soon interrupted by Nia Jax's entrance. Jax fires back by saying that Bliss cannot whine, as she had promised Jax a title match. Bliss tries to talk her way out of a beating by saying that she wanted to put on a classic last week, but Mickie James and Dana Brooke interfered. Brooke and James comes out to the ramp and James calls Bliss a dwarf right out of the gate and brags about being a six-time champion. Brooke calls out Alexa for her remarks about Jax from last week. Alexa calls out Brooke for being a disgruntled worker and James for being past her prime. Emma makes her return to Raw and inserts herself into the promo. She tells that the spotlight can be put on her because "Emma is back" and she is ready "to take her place at the top of Raw's Women's Division". Sasha Banks is next to enter the crowded ring. Banks receives a nice pop. She calls out Bliss for being a lackluster champion and a coward with the belt. Sasha attacks Bliss and erupts a free-for-all.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax, Emma vs Sasha Banks, Dana Brooke, Mickie James

Brooke fights back, but Emma keeps Dana away from a tag. Emma even takes a cheap shot at Mickie James. Sasha Banks gets the tag and tosses Emma into Nia Jax. Emma tries to tag out, but Bliss walks out on the match. Banks goes for a cover, but is broken up by Jax. James kicks Jax in the face and goes off the top rope and collides with Jax. Emma taps out to a Bank Statement for the loss. Alexa Bliss stands tall on the ramp.

RESULT: Sasha Banks, Dana Brooke, and Mickie James win via submission
THOUGHTS: Emma is back and brings a fresh face to the division. This match was nothing special, however. The whole division was showcased here and shows that any one of these women can compete for Bliss's title. It is just a matter of who will be next up for a title shot.

Bayley ends the interview with an awkward hug with Corey.

MATCH: Slater and Rhyno vs The Miz and ???

*Commercial Break*

The Miz comes to the ring and is followed by a bear on a tricycle. The Miz is not amused with his new partner. The match starts and Slater goes for a roll-up. The Miz focues on Slater and not "Ambrose". The crowd chants for the bear to be tagged in.

She limps away as her husband is hit by a Dirty Deeds and Ambrose helps Slater get the pin. Post-match, Ambrose puts the bear head on The Miz and walks out.

RESULT: Slater and Rhyno win via pinfall
THOUGHTS: The Miz needs to move on from Ambrose, as the segments are getting more and more wacky. Slater and Rhyno get a win, but with the help from Ambrose. This match lasted longer than expected at least.

He rolls Swann out of the ring and gloats as "king". He says how many more pretenders he must go through to earn the respect he deserves. He has heard about the rumors of Akira Towaza being the "next champion". He says the Titus Brand cannot even save him or give him an advantage.

RESULT: Neville wins via submission
THOUGHTS: The crusierweights are once more given just seconds for a match and wonder why there is little care for the division. Neville needs a solid contender to compete with and the division overall needs more airtime to succeed.

PROMO (Backstage): Backstage, Sheamus and Cesaro are interviewed and asked about tonight's match. Sheamus is the key is to know your opponents and read the book written by the Hardy Boyz, "Exist to Inspire", to study them.

Amore is helped to his feet as Big Cass gets back to his feet. He stands with jealously as Show and Amore celebrate without him.

RESULT: Gallows and Anderson win via pinfall
THOUGHTS: The attacker angle on Cass and Amore started off as an intriguing mystery and has turned into foreshadowing a possible breakup of the team. Gallows and Anderson have fallen hard since their WWE debuts, running like cowards instead of standing their ground as they used to.

*Commercial Break*

VIDEO PACKAGE:.R-Truth airs a promo by quoting "Cool Hand Luke". He tells of Goldust's betrayal and continues to mock Goldust's Hollywood promos.

RESULT: Sheamus and Cesaro retain via draw
THOUGHTS: This match was looking like it wouldn't be a great match given the time, but it ended up being quite the main event. These four men put on a classic in a short amount of time and had many huge spots. The outcome and the overall match did seem rushed a little and the ending being a draw did hurt it. However, it foreshadows an even bigger match for these two teams in the near future.
