The McMahon Family & Constable Baron Corbin In-Ring Segment: 

Vince doesn’t want to hear any boos tonight. People have asked what is going on with Monday Night Raw? Vince has asked himself that question. Raw has been on the air for more than 25 years. One of the reasons for its success is that they change for the times. Despite one man’s brilliance, despite one man’s creativity, one man’s vision, he can’t do it all by himself any more. He could do it without the crowd. With that in mind, Vince brings out Stephanie, Shane and Triple H. They are not listening to the audience. They have let middle managers air their grievances and they have been suffocating their superstars and that ends tonight. Absentee management is over and the four of them will be taking over Raw and SmackDown.

They are here to ensure that you have the best possible experience. They are going to empower the superstars and the fans. Something new and something fresh. In the coming weeks and months, you will be seeing new faces and new superstars. As of now, the WWE Universe are The Authority. Vince says that as long as they give you more of what you want than what you don’t want, it will be then, now and forever. Constable Baron Corbin comes out to interrupt The McMahon Family. No one is more excited for a fresh start than him.

The people are booing Corbin. He’s excited that the entire McMahon family is running Raw. What happened to him last night was not fair. Corbin wants to have a simple conversation. This is a small group and the way the crowd reacts tonight is not how everyone feels. The crowd is getting under Corbin’s skin. Stephanie points out that Vince is losing his hearing. Every night comes out and does his best. Vince reminds Corbin that he has a microphone and the crowd does not.

Corbin has been trying to motivate superstars and it is not his fault if they cannot live up to the challenge. Braun Strowman was not supposed to be at TLC and he was not prepared for the match. Was that fair? So basically Corbin wants The McMahon’s to reconsider him as permanent GM of Raw. Stephanie says no. Shane says no. Hunter gives a no. There’s no chance in hell. Vince says there is a way. Maybe they are wrong. Maybe you deserve a chance to be named permanent General Manager of Raw. If Corbin can defeat Kurt Angle, he’ll become the permanent General Manager of Raw. Wait just a minute, Heath Slater will be the special guest referee.
