“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.
The show opens with a video that recaps the incredible assault on Roman Reigns by Braun Strowman last week. Strowman viciously attacked him, slamming a crate into his head, throwing him off a ledge while attached to a stretcher, and tipped over an ambulance with him inside.
Braun says it’ll be Roman’s funeral, and Angle says we’ll see in two weeks. Strowman asks about tonight and Kurt says his ass should be suspended, and he can consider it a night off. Braun says Mick Foley tried to play these games and you see how far that got him, and he demands competition tonight or else.
Angle asks or what, Braun gets in his face, drops the mic, and leaves.
