PROMO (In-Ring): All the Raw women are in the ring with pedestal in the center, and its a coronation for new Raw Women's Champion, Alexa Bliss. Alexa thanks the crew for being in the ring even though she had Kurt Angle force them to come out. She goes down the line of superstars and sarcastically thanks them, and says she deserves a coronation. She then gets to Bayley and thanks her for giving her the opportunity to be champion and mocks her for losing in her hometown. This boils down to a huge brawl between all the women.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Mickie James, Sasha Banks, Bayley, & Dana Brooke vs. Alicia Fox, Emma, Alexa Bliss, & Nia Jax

RESULTS: Alexa, Alicia, Emma, and Nia win with Alexa picking up the pinfall over Bayley.
THOUGHTS: So, Alexa references this match a lot during the "coronation" promo, but coming back from break Michael Cole insisted this was an "impromptu match up set up by Kurt Angle during the break".. It is also advertised on the website.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Enzo (w Big Cass) vs. Luke Gallows (w Karl Anderson)

RESULTS: Luke Gallows wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: I would hope that this is the beginning of a push for Luke & Karl, but I know better.

PROMO (Backstage): Neville & TJ Perkins are backstage, and TJ questions Neville about getting purposefully DQ'd in his bout against Aries. Neville says it was the officials fault, and says that Aries is both their problem and it needs to be taken care of.

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (In-Ring): Seth Rollins is here to tell us whats next for The Architect. Seth says that he has made a change in his life, and became the person he wants to be and now he wants Brock Lesnar. He's been to Suplex City, and he wants to go back. That brings out Finn Balor. Finn says Seth has been on a roll, but last time the two met he beat Seth with only one arm. He reminds him that he never lost the title, so the line starts with him. That brings out Dean Ambrose. I should throw in that all men are in their ring gear. Dean says that this show should be about fighting champions which Lensar is not, so that makes his Intercontinental Championship the #1 title on Raw and he is ready for some action. That, of course, brings out Miz and Maryse. Miz says he deserves the Intercontinental Championship, and no one else deserves it. This ends up being Dean calling Kurt Angle on his phone in the ring, and is setting up a match. Tonight will be The Miz vs. Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins in a number one contenders match for the Intercontinental Championship.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Tony Nese, The Brian Kendrick, & Noam Dar vs. Rich Swann, Akira Tozawa, & Jack Gallagher

RESULTS: Team face wins with Gallagher pinning Kendrick.
THOUGHTS: Hey! Its Brian Kendrick! And Rich Swann! Someone other than Neville & Austin Aries! Although I'm fine with them too.

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (In-Ring): Cesaro and Sheamus explain why they turned on The Hardy Boys last night. They blame Matt & Jeff for taking their moment away from them at WrestleMania all for a rush of nostalgia. That brings out Matt & Jeff, and they respond by heading to the ring for a fight. But of course Cesaro and Sheamus retreat.

PROMO (Backstage): The Miz says that he is going to be the number on contender for the Intercontinental Championship.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Heath Slater (w Rhyno) vs. Apollo Crews (w Titus O'Niel)

RESULTS: Apollo wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: I guess that Titus is a manager now, but hey at least Apollo got a win!

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (In-Ring): GM Kurt Angle is here to talk about Roman Reigns & Braun Strowman. These two are not done with one another, and there will be more to come. But he's interrupted by Bray Wyatt. Bray introduces himself and talks about Randy and his HoH, and that he is now reborn defeating Randy. He says that Kurt needs him, but he has to allow him to do his work and not stand in his way. Kurt says that he doesn't know what Bray's plans are, but this is his show. Bray says that this is his world.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Austin Aries vs. TJ Perkins

RESULTS: Austin Aries wins via submission.
THOUGHTS: This was fantastic, and I expected that as these two are as good as it gets.

After the match TJP attacks Austin Aries

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (Backstage): The Golden Truth is talking to Kurt and they say that they want to take on The Hardy Boyz for the tag team titles. Kurt says their record just isn't going to allow that to happen. Goldust gives a great speech about how that Kurts return and the Hardy's coming back has inspired him to be his old self and he won't let anyone down. So, Kurt makes a tag team turmoil match and the winner will be the new number one contenders. That will be next week on Raw.

INTERCONTINENTAL NUMBER ONE CONTENDERS MATCH: Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins vs. The Miz (w Maryse)

Samoa Joe comes in and assaults Seth Rollins.

As Finn sets up for his finisher, he is attacked by Bray Wyatt.

This all sets up The Miz for the win.

RESULTS: The Miz wins via pinfall on Finn Balor.
THOUGHTS: Wow. Great match. I really don't want to see anymore of Joe and Rollins, but it could be worse. Also, a Demon Balor vs. Wyatt match could be really cool, so I'm good with that too. The Miz is a bonafide star, and seeing him with the title wouldn't be a bad thing even though that won't happen.
