Stephanie McMahon, Kurt Angle and The Shield In-Ring Segment:
Stephanie has a lot of decisions to make that affect Raw, the shareholders, and the WWE Universe. There’s decisions that the WWE Universe cannot fathom. She needs leaders to help her, like the General Manager of Raw, Kurt Angle. How did the New Day get into the building? Angle doesn’t know . Stephanie appreciates Angle’s honesty. Was there really a raid or did her brother manipulate him again? She can put together a highlight reel of everything that has happened over the last few weeks for the 25th anniversary of Raw. Stephanie wants to know what makes Jason Jordan a valuable member to Team Raw? Angle says that he’s talented. Who’s Smackdown’s fifth member? It’s John Cena. Stephanie feels that John Cena didn’t like Angle’s leadership skills.
Angle says that he’s going to break Stephanie’s brother’s ankle. If Shane has any balls, he’ll start the match too. Stephanie says that it’s not the 90’s anymore and he’s not sure if Angle can truly break any ankle anymore. Shane is trying to ruin the show that her father created 25 years ago and Angle has done nothing to change her mind. She doesn’t want an ankle, she wants her brother’s head on a platter.
The Shield comes out to interrupt Stephanie. Ambrose says that there’s no better leader than Kurt Angle. They’ve seen alot of people come and go, but Angle still has it and he showed it at the TLC PPV. The New Day made The Shield look like fools and that’s Angle’s fault. Stephanie wants to know where the hell has Roman Reigns has been? Reigns asks the same question. Stephanie has been gone for seven months because her husband put her through a table at WrestleMania. The Shield doesn’t listen to authority. Roman challenges The New Day to a match at Survivor Series. Kurt Angle will lead Team Red to victory and The Shield will kick The New Day’s ass.

Miz TV with Special Guests: Cesaro & Sheamus
Baron Corbin gets his chance on Sunday to be in the spotlight with him. Corbin squanders opportunities. He failed with the Money in the Bank cash in and his title reign has been a disappointment. He wasn’t even on Smackdown last week. Corbin couldn’t even be the bathroom break. If Miz doesn’t have opportunities, he makes them.
Miz can have one of the most monumental victories of his career tonight when he faces the Shield. He won’t be doing it alone. He goes on to introduce his special guest, The Bar. Sheamus and Cesaro kept their eyes on the prize and were not distracted by a surprise appearance by The New Day. While The Shield cared about defending Raw, they focused on getting the title back so they are now three time tag team champions.
Sheamus says that they’re the real tag team champions of the WWE because The Usos are on the B Show, Smackdown. When Miz hands goes up, your mouths goes shut. Give the Raw Tag Team Champions the respect that they deserve. At Survivor Series, The Bar will jailbreak The Uso Penitentiary. Miz says they will break the Shield tonight.
For the first time in three years, they’ll take on the original Shield. No glory hogging Kurt Angle to bait and switch. It’s Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns in the ring at the same time. One of the most dominant groups in WWE history. Think of the odds they had to overcome to make this possible. The betrayal and fighting against each other for the sole purpose of facing them. The Happy Reunion Tour ends tonight. Sheamus & Cesaro don’t set the bar, they are THE BAR !!

Brock Lesnar & Paul Heyman In-Ring Segment:

This also may be the only time that Brock Lesnar ever faces AJ Styles. If you want to see Brock Lesnar versus AJ Styles, it happens this Sunday, so don’t miss. Heyman four more selling points to go.
Selling Point Two: As a fan Paul Heyman wants to see Brock Lesnar versus AJ Styles. No one knows Brock Lesnar better than him. He’s seen his client put in the ring against people bigger than him and stronger than him. Heyman has never seen anyone who can claim to be better than Brock Lesnar. AJ Styles presents an interesting dichotomy. Styles has mastered something they teach you in UFC and WWE. Speed kills. Styles has the speed advantage, but that’s not all he has to offer. Heyman and Brock are distracted by a couple in the Philips Arena that just got engaged. Heyman says that the female companion has never to been close to real man like, Brock Lesnar.

Selling Point Three: AJ Styles is the single most talented in ring performer of this generation. There are those who say that title belongs to Finn Balor and he’ll let them fight it out.

This good old boy from Georgia is going to step into the ring with a Georgia Bulldog eating carnivore. Brock Lesnar will prove that he’s the number one champion in WWE, then, now, and forever.
Selling Point Four: If you want to see a Rocky movie come to life, that’s AJ Styles. He’s beaten John Cena, Shane McMahon, and Jinder Mahal to become the WWE Champion. This is such a compelling and riveting story. Selling Point F-Five: This ain’t no freaking Rocky Movie, this is Survivor Series. AJ Styles cannot survive Suplex City or the onslaught of the Conqueror.
