Sami Zayn & The Judgment Day Segment
Sami Zayn: Welcome to the season premiere of Monday Night Raw. I got to be honest with you guys, it feels a little weird coming out here by myself. As most of you know by now, my tag team partner, my brother, Kevin Owens has been moved over to SmackDown. I’m going to be honest with you guys, I got a lot of mixed emotions going on right now. Obviously, I’m very sad that our partnership has come to an end this way. But I’m also excited. I’m excited for him. Because I know Kevin Owens is going to do huge things on SmackDown. And if I’m being honest, I’m excited for me, too. Because I get to do something I haven’t done in a while. To stand on my own two feet and show the whole world what I’ve known inside of me for years and years. And that is Sami Zayn is a World Heavyweight Champion level superstar. Well, thank you for that, that’s got me feeling really good. But I also have to address the elephant in the room, which is the reason that Kevin Owens is no longer on Monday Night Raw. It’s because of the arrival of Jey Uso.
Now, hang on a second, nobody was happier than I was when Jey Uso came to Monday Night Raw, but even I have to admit, I’m struggling a little bit with that right now, okay. I’m also struggling with the fact that after it took our entire lives to reach the highest of high’s, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn winning the tag team championships. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn main evented WrestleMania. After all that work to get there, our entire tag team championship reign was tainted by the fact that for week in and week out, for six months, we had to deal with The Judgment Day. And now tonight, The Judgment Day are the ones getting the tag team title opportunity. I got a lot of mixed emotions, okay. I’ll be honest with you; I have no idea what’s next for Sami Zayn. But here’s the one thing that I do know. The last year of my career, by far has been the best year of my career. And the reason I reached the high’s that I did is because of each and every single one of you.
Finn Balor: Nobody should be kicking off the season premiere of Monday Night Raw but The Judgment Day. But what do we got over here? Looks to me like poor little Sami Zayn is all alone.
Damian Priest: You know what? It feels like we’ve had these thorns on our side forever. But I’m happy to say that one has been removed. Now, the only thing that would make us even happier is removing you, removing the Undisputed Tag Team Idiots. You know what? I would be happy to remove Drew McIntyre.
Rhea Ripley: We talked about this, forget about Drew for now, focus on tonight, okay?
Dominik Mysterio: Tonight, Mami is going to tear Shayna apart and put the whole women’s division back on notice.
Rhea Ripley: That’s right, Dom. And Finn, Priest, you’re going to bring back the tag team championships to The Judgment Day. But before we do that, I happen to notice something, Sami. You’re looking kind of lost. You know what’s funny? Back in the day, The Judgment Day would recruit lost superstars and give them direction. We tried to do that with Jey Uso. But when it comes to you, we have a different plan. We want to get rid of you, permanently.
Jey Uso storms into the ring with two steel chairs before The Judgment Day could jump Sami Zayn.
Shinsuke Nakamura Promo
Shinsuke Nakamura: Ricochet. Falls Count Anywhere Match. Whose decision? You or Adam? Whatever. You are like a fly or mosquito. So, I am going to smash you like a bug on the dirty floor.
Jey Uso wants to know if Sami Zayn is good. Sami says that he needs some space right now. He wants to be happy for Jey, and he appreciates him having his back. At the same time, it should’ve been Kevin Owens who saved him. But he’s not here anymore because of Jey. Jey has everything going for him, but Sami has nothing. Jey didn’t know Sami felt like that. He has Sami’s back, but it is what it is, uce. Sami proceeds to apologize to Jey. Sami asks Jey if they’re good. Jey says YEET!

Seth Rollins & Drew McIntyre Segment
Seth Rollins: Oklahoma City. Welcome to the season premiere of Monday Night Rollins. We had ourselves a hell of a season finale just last week. Found ourselves a new number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship. “The Scottish Warrior” Drew McIntyre. Hell of a guy, that Drew. Comes out here, challenges me to my face. Says that he wants me at 100%, good guy, right? But then I get jumped by Damian Priest, and Drew McIntyre doesn’t do a damn thing. I’m a bit confused by it. Then Dominik Mysterio comes flying out here with the Money In The Bank Contract, and all of sudden, Drew McIntyre, he’s suddenly my white knight. And it was getting a little weird. Later on, during the show, it got a lot of weirder, and I got a lot of questions. Guys, I can’t answer those questions. Drew McIntyre is the only person who could answer those questions. So, Drew, consider this an invitation, would you please come out here on join us on the season premiere of Monday Night Rollins?
Drew McIntyre: So, Seth, the part where I said I want you as close to 100% as possible for our match at Crown Jewel, that involved things like not standing right in the middle of the ring where you’re going to get jumped. It’s funny, I’m not going to babysit you for the next couple of weeks.
Seth Rollins: Wow, Drew, I appreciate that. That’s very kind of you. But if there’s one thing that I’ve proven over the last few months, is that I can handle my business on my own. But the question I have for you is, are you handling your business on your own? Or have you unlisted a little bit of help?
Drew McIntyre: I think everybody knows that Drew McIntyre handles his own business. Clearly, you got something on your mind, so can you elaborate, buddy?
Seth Rollins: Oh, indeed there is. Fine folks in the TV truck, could you please roll the video footage? Here we have ourselves a conversation with Ricochet and Adam Pearce, but if you zoom in the background, what’s that? Oh, that’s the leader of The Judgment Day, Rhea Ripley with a very large, muscular, ruggedly handsome man, who looks a little Scottish to me. Care to elaborate?
Drew McIntyre: First of all, I’m not a thirsty creep like Jey Uso. She came to me. What we talked about is none of your business. You need to stop worrying about The Judgment Day, worrying about anything in the world, except Drew McIntyre taking that title away from you.
Seth Rollins: Oh, well, thank you for clearing up all that confusion for me. Since you cleared that up, let me make something perfectly clear to you, nobody is taking this title off of me, especially you. I get it, man, the last couple of years, they’re really messing with your head, haven’t they? You got a lot of big opportunities, a lot of big matches and just when you needed success, you’ve had a lot of big failures. And you’re so freaked out by failing again, you’ve been enlisted a little side help with The Judgment Day. Is that how it’s going to be? Let me tell you something, that’s not going to work for you how you think it is. Dealing with The Judgment Day is a slippery slope you don’t want to go down.
Drew McIntyre: You seemed a little rattled, champ. And you should be. I remember the last time we had a World Title Match, I beat your ass. I don’t need anyone to fight my battles. I don’t need The Judgment Day. And all of those matches you were talking about, the big matches that I lost. If you did your tape study, you’d see the constant interference, the mist to the eyes, the low blows, The Bloodline.
Seth Rollins: Oh my god, will you shut up about The Bloodline already? For god sakes, man, you’ve got to move on, man. The Bloodline have clearly moved on from you. Let me put this to you plainly, and I mean this with all due respect, Drew get over it.
Drew McIntyre: Get over it. You like being world champion, don’t you. The thousands of people screaming for you, singing your song every week, yeah. I have catchy theme song too I can bring back, but I don’t need that crutch. That was my dream, too. And when I achieved that dream in the main event of WrestleMania, when I beat Brock Lesnar in five minutes, there was nobody there. It wasn’t just a tough time for the company, we were in a worldwide pandemic and we needed someone to step up and Drew McIntyre stepped up. Miss moment after miss moment, by the time everybody was back, the moment had passed. But I captured lightning in the bottle a second time, in the UK, one on one against Roman Reigns, with over 50,000 people where it all began. Who screwed me over? The Bloodline. I’m sorry if I’m not getting over it so quick, but right now is a third lightning in a bottle situation. You need to think really hard about how you’re going to reinvent yourself for the 53rd time when I beat you and take that title from you at Crown Jewel.
Seth Rollins: Drew, nobody understands what you’re going through better than I do. I know how difficult it could be to get yourself back to the top of the mountain. I spent four years digging and fighting and clawing to get back to the top of that mountain. But all I’m hearing from you right now is a bunch of excuses. You’re pointing fingers, making excuses, and I promise you that’s not going to get you where you want to go. I am going to beat you at Crown Jewel. And I promise it’s going to be the best thing that ever happened to you. Because for the first time in a long time, you will have nobody to blame but yourself.
– Bronson Reed Vignette.
