Rhea Ripley & Sami Zayn Segment 

Rhea Ripley: Welcome to Monday Night Raw. The show that The Judgment Day runs. Come on, guys, we’ve proven this every single week, it’s not just a saying anymore because we have taken care of every superstar that’s been put in our way. I mean, last week, Damian Priest, he absolutely shattered Cody Rhodes’ ankle. It’s good, and that’s just the beginning because, tonight, my Dirty Dom, my Latino Heat, he’s going to put down Ricochet and remind him that nobody disrespects The Judgment Day. Isn’t that, right?

And then we have JD, who’s going to show Seth Rollins exactly what it feels like to be an enemy of The Judgment Day. As for Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre go, they’ve got some decisions to make. And which one decides to make the right deal with The Judgment Day, well, then it really depends on who’s going to walk out of Crown Jewel a loser like all of you or as the World Heavyweight Champion. Speaking of Crown Jewel, I got the odds stacked against me. I’m going to be stepping into the ring with four of the baddest women here within the WWE. But for me, that’s just another opportunity to prove to every single one of you, who is the dominant woman here in the WWE and why Mami is always on top.

Sami Zayn: Well, I’m sorry, Rhea. I know I wasn’t invited out here, but I got to tell you, I am so sick of hearing you talk. I am so sick of hearing you talk about power and how Judgment Day has all the power, Judgment Day has all the championships, and how Judgment Day runs Monday Night Raw. Let me explain something to you about me. In case you haven’t learned this about me, my entire career, my entire life, I have fought people like The Judgment Day. People who thought like The Judgment Day. People that think that all that matters is power. And as long as you’re chasing power, you can do whatever you want.

You can be as ruthless as you want, as cutthroat as you want. You can rule with an iron fist. You can oppress, whoever, whenever, as long as it’s in the name of power. So, that’s fine, if that’s the name of your game, fine, but understand this. My name is not Sami Zayn. My name is rebellion. My name is resistance. And I will fight The Judgment Day, whether it’s one on one, two on one, three on one, four on one, five on one, as long as there’s a breath left in my body. I’ll fight The Judgment Day, and everything you stand for until The Judgment Day is no more.

Rhea Ripley: Sami, yes, hilarious because you can resist all that you want, it doesn’t matter. We don’t need the numbers when it comes to you. So, if management grants the okay, why don’t you go one on one against Damian Priest?

Dominik Mysterio: You know what, Mami? Let’s teach him a lesson, right now.

Ricochet storms into the ring before The Judgment Day could jump Sami Zayn.

One my first night back, I squashed the most dominant woman’s champion, Rhea Ripley.

Miz TV With Special Guest: GUNTHER 

The Miz: Welcome to the most must see WWE talk show in history, Miz TV. And it’s a very Halloween Special Edition, so let’s get this started. After the announcement of the premium live event, The Bash At Berlin, I’ve secured the biggest guys in Miz TV history. Now, this is first time being on any WWE talk show. So, ladies and gentlemen, please gets out of your seats and give it up for the longest reigning Intercontinental Champion of all-time, The Ring General, GUNTHER. Right, so do I have to speak in German?

Ludwig Kaiser: You know, I hate to break it to you, but the ring general, obviously is not just going to walk down here just because you tell him to. I mean, especially for you, The Miz, because you are literally everything that is wrong with the WWE Universe today. I mean, you are the embodiment of what we absolutely despise. You are nothing but a clown, Miz.

The Miz: You know, I’ve been called a lot of things, done a lot of things, but I’ve never been another man’s side kick and that must make you the third wheel, Vinci.

Giovanni Vinci: Weren’t you your wife’s side kick on Total Divas?

The Miz: He talks, with such a deep voice. He said something, give him a big round of applause, ladies and gentlemen, he spoke. It’s Miz and Mrs.’, and you wish you could be yelled at by someone as hot as my wife, instead of being yelled by him. By the way, you’re allowing him to talk, I thought you were in charge.

Giovanni Vinci: Listen, I talk when I want to talk.

Ludwig Kaiser: Listen, you talk when The Ring General tells you to, or I tell you to.

The Miz: Ladies and gentlemen, Gunther. Welcome to the show, please have a seat or don’t.

Gunther: Since you clearly didn’t understand the message, I’m not your guest. I came here to make two things clear to you. First of all, it is the year 2023 and you’re seriously trying to run a talk show? Secondly, this ring is sacred to me. And everything you do here is beneath me. In fact, you are beneath me. Miz, I do not respect you.

The Miz: Well, I got to say, that’s a way to break the ice. It’s not the first time I heard that, probably won’t be the last. But let me explain something to you. I interviewed an invisible John Cena and he was more entertaining than you. And let me explain something else, whether it’s movies, TV, or in this ring, I am the biggest star that WWE has.

Gunther: See, Miz, that’s exactly your issue. Once the bell rings, it doesn’t matter how entertaining you are. When it gets serious, the only thing that matters is how good of a wrestler that you are. And that’s exactly why you are a talk show host, and I am the greatest and longest reigning Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion of all-time.

The Miz: You want to talk about serious? You know, I could be serious when I want to be. I was serious when I beat Randy Orton for my first WWE Championship. I was serious when I beat John Cena in the main event of WrestleMania. And I was serious when won my second WWE Championship a decade later. And let me tell you something, and I really want you to understand me, and I’m going to speak very slowly. I was very serious when I made that title on your shoulder the most prestigious and relevant title in all of WWE. And I have no problem doing it again.

Gunther: Are you serious? Seriously, I get it, you are one of the greatest sports entertainers in history. So, you are all about creating incredible moments. Why not create a Miz TV moment that you’ll never forget? Why are you going to do about it? Like always, nothing.

Miz tosses Kaiser and Vinci out of the ring. Gunther drops Miz with a knife edge chop.

Shayna Baszler Promo 

You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do. Now, what I plan on doing is ripping and tearing, limb by limb, four women who parade around Monday Night Raw as if they are worthy competition. They don’t understand completely the pain that I can inflict on them. And at Crown Jewel, I’m going to show the world that I am the most dominant woman on Raw and become the next Women’s World Champion.

Drew McIntyre Promo 

One of the most memorable moments of my career happen in a time of history that nobody wants to remember. I find myself asking, was the sacrifice worth it? Of course, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t angry. Before the age of 30, I was named the chosen one. Failed and then fired. It took four years to reinvent myself. And ultimately, I took my second chance. Finally, after 20 years of giving everything, I could to the industry, I won the Royal Rumble. I had the fans behind me. There was going to be a stadium cheering for me. And I would slay the beast in the main event of WrestleMania. But everything changed overnight. WrestleMania is going to be in front of nobody, you got to be kidding me. The pandemic shut the world down. And although WWE carried on, I was all alone. I beat Brock Lesnar and became WWE Champion in this building. The biggest moment of my career with no one there to celebrate it.

Still, I did what I always do, my job. I defended my title against the best WWE had to offer. Putting my body through absolute hell. I needed to be a champion they could be proud of. And then everyone finally returned, and the moment past. For months, I fought to get it back and WWE returned to the UK, once again. I had everything aligned. I was going to beat Roman Reigns in front of 60,000 people screaming me on, only for The Bloodline to cheat and take it all away from me. Unlike everyone else, I won’t forget The Bloodline. I can’t erase the past. At Crown Jewel, I can make it right. Seth Rollins, this will be another title defense in a Hall Of Fame Career, but for me, this is everything. We both live for this. Seth is willing to break his back to keep his championship. I’m willing to break his back to take it away from him. I need this. No more broken dreams. 2020, Seth Rollins was my first title defense. After Crown Jewel, I will be his last.

Seth Rollins Promo

Welcome To Monday Night Rollins. I am a visionary. I am a revolutionary. I am Seth Freakin’ Rollins. Greenville, I’m feeling a little bit loose tonight. So, I have graciously agreed to beat the crap out of The Judgment Day’s little bag boy, JD McDonagh, right here tonight. And I will do that in preparation for this Saturday night, Crown Jewel, Seth Rollins versus Drew McIntyre for the World Heavyweight Championship. And I’m a fan of Drew McIntyre, so I’m going to say this as respectfully as I can. After hearing what Drew had to say a few minutes ago, boo freaking hoo. Cry me river, you big Scottish baby. You want to flashback to 2020, right? All of us were suffering in one way, right? There were a lot of people who had it way worse than you did, okay. They didn’t know when they were going to get their next paycheck. They didn’t know when they were going to get their next set of groceries.

They didn’t know if they were going to see their loved ones, again. Some of them didn’t get to, so excuse me for not feeling sorry for you for not winning the way you dreamt it. And you want to blame all of that on The Bloodline, all of your failures, all your shortcomings. I’ll say it again, cry me a river, get in line. Get in line with guys like Sami Zayn. Get in line, I don’t like him, with guy like Cody Rhodes. You don’t hear those guys asking for pity, now, don’t you, Drew McIntyre? But I will say this, Drew, you were a hell of a champion. And this Saturday at Crown Jewel, if you could take this title off of me, if you could pry it from my waist, I will be the first man there to shake your hand and call you champ, just like I did in 2020. But I’m not the same guy from back then. The Messiah is gone. I am no longer the architect. There is a reason these people sing my song.

That’s because you are a walk behinder. You walk behind Rhea Ripley. You walk behind Finn Balor. And you even walk behind Dominik Mysterio.

And this Saturday at Crown Jewel, my path goes straight through you.

Winner: Damian Priest via Disqualification
