Dean Ambrose and Constable Baron Corbin In-Ring Segment:
Charly Caruso is conducting an in-ring interview with Dean Ambrose. How did Ambrose feel about the harsh comments from The Dogs Of War? There’s to truth to what they said. Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins are champions. He has nothing around his waist. Ambrose was a champion on his own before. When he got injured and lost a year of his career and was replaced pretty quickly by Jason Jordan. Did Ambrose consider leaving The Shield? Ambrose thinks about a lot of things. Maybe he turned in his notice and gave up his black uniform. Maybe the dog tags don’t mean as much as they did before. Maybe he would run Reigns car off the road and he won’t even be here tonight.
There’s so many questions surrounding him. Will he turn his back on The Shield? When will he finally snap because he is a lunatic and you don’t know what he will do next. Maybe they are thinking that Ambrose is waiting for the perfect time when nobody is looking or watching for him to slip the knife right in their back. Why did Ambrose come back to RAW? He could’ve been on SmackDown doing his own thing. Is Ambrose is fed up with The Shield? Ambrose wants to be judged by his actions. Ambrose stands by his family.
The Shield is not a business or a brand. It’s a brotherhood. They will always ride into battle together. Constable Baron Corbin comes out to interrupt Ambrose. That was a good story about brotherhood, but all Corbin heard was a bunch of whining. Is there something gnawing at that little lunatic brain of his? Is Corbin a therapist in addition to being a substitute teacher? Is Corbin salty because he couldn’t finish off the Shield the last few weeks? The Shield wasn’t causing any chaos, so it’s a win-win for Corbin. If Ambrose wants to be judged by his actions, he can choose one of these three options.
1.) Fight Seth Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship.
2.) Fight Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship.
3.) Battle The Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman
Is Ambrose brothers more important than his career? If you think Corbin is going to come out and dangle a carrot and watch Ambrose dance, you don’t know him. What about option four? Ambrose kicks Corbin’s ass right now. Corbin will make the decision for Ambrose. Braun Strowman makes his way down to the ring.

Shawn Michaels, Triple H, The Undertaker and Kane In-Ring Segment:
It feels good to be home again. The last time ever. You gotta imagine what it is like to know going into something how intense and intimidating it will be when before it happens you can begin to feel that gamut of emotions. Is it stress, anxiety, nervousness, sadness, or joy? HBK has felt each and every one of them with you but now it’s time. This Saturday in Melbourne. HBK pried his wallet open and booked a first class flight for the 100 hour trip to Australia.
He wanted to attend the show as a fan. An innocent bystander until a couple of weeks ago. Then it got personal. The Undertaker, through no fault of his own, made this personal a long time ago with Triple H, but then Taker made him make a choice for who he thought would win and who he would stand behind. HBK had nothing but the utmost respect for The Undertaker, but every day of the week and twice on Sunday, he will pick his best friend.
For one reason or another, that upset The Undertaker. You made this personal and now it is. HBK will be in his brother’s corner. If anyone else tries to get involved in that match, HBK will brush them back courtesy of some Sweet Chin Music. Kane makes his way down the isle. Kane uppercuts HBK. The lights go out. The Undertaker is here. Undertaker gets HBK in position for The ChokeSlam. Triple H storms into the ring to make the save. Triple H is throwing haymakers at Taker. Kane attacks Triple H from behind. The Brothers Of Destruction delivers Stereo ChokeSlams. Taker plants Triple H with The TombStone PileDriver.
