The Raw video plays, and we go live into the Moda Center to see a big pyrotechnics display.
Seth “Freakin” Rollins makes his way to the ring. The crowd sings his song. Rollins welcomes Portland to “Monday Night Rollins.” Rollins says he is the host of this show, he is the visionary and revolutionary… he is Seth “Freakin” Rollins. The crowd sings his song again. Rollins has a question for the audience: do they believe in karma? Good things to good people and bad things to bad people. Rollins was skeptical, but nine days ago at Clash at the Castle, the universe was in perfect harmony because he beat Matt Riddle. Rollins stomped his head into the mat twice and had 60,000 fans singing his song. The crowd boos, but some of them sing his song.
Rollins says he knows he is living rent-free in the pea brain of Riddle because he has requested a rematch. The problem is Rollins isn’t too interested in a rematch. The crowd boos. Rollins says they may be wondering what is next for him. While they ponder that question… Rollins is cut off by chants for a rematch. Rollins says he isn’t interested in a rematch against Riddle, so they can zip it. The crowd boos. What Rollins is interested in is the fact that it has been far too long since he has held championship gold.

They’re here to change that for Riddle. Bálor says Riddle has seen how much Dom has grown in the past few weeks. Dom has stepped out of his father’s shadow and will take care of Edge tonight. Bálor says Riddle has problems, and they’re problem solvers. Priest says Judgment Day is simple. The crowd chants, “Bro!” Priest says that means they want him to join. Riddle can rise with the Judgment Day or fall against them.
Riddle says they do go way back, but his focus is on Seth, so the answer is no. Bálor says he knows the laws are more relaxed in Portland, so maybe his brain is cloudy. Riddle can either stand with them or stand in their way. Bálor is in Riddle’s face. Riddle floors him with a vicious knee to the face. Riddle then clotheslines Priest out of the ring. Bálor angrily holds his jaw at ringside.

Edge got exactly what he deserved. Replays are shown of Dominik kicking Edge in the groin. Dominik will finish what he started tonight. As for his father, he knows he’s disappointed in him, but that’s too bad. This is his life, not Rey’s.

Kevin Owens’ music hits, and he comes out to the stage. Owens and Theory battled last week on Raw in a match that saw Kevin Owens come out victorious. A loud “KO” chant picks up. Owens begins to talk, but Theory tells him to shut up. Theory is tired of his moments being ruined by idiots like Owens, Tyson Fury, and Johnny Gargano. Owens is looking at the future. He is the youngest Mr. Money in the Bank in history and he will take over this damn industry. Owens says Theory tried to say all of that last week. Clearly, his jaw is fixed. They’re heard for months about how Theory is the future. Owens told him that he was the handpicked future of WWE. That may have been true, but that’s not how it works anymore. Guys like him and Johnny Gargano don’t look like Theory. Theory says they never will look like him. None of the people can look like him. Theory gets why they’re jealous. He’s done more in the past five months than Owens and Gargano have done in five years.
Owens says statements like that show how big of a delusional jackass Theory is. Theory accomplished all this by being handed opportunities. Theory won the United States Title in a match he didn’t earn and got Money in the Bank despite not being in the match. Those were given to him, and Owens doesn’t begrudge that. Owens was handed the Universal Championship on a silver platter. That’s where their similarities end. Owens gets in the ring. Owens says he and Theory are complete opposites, and he couldn’t be prouder of that fact. Owens asks how many guys in the last two decades have come by WWE just like Theory. How many of them fizzled out and went nowhere? Hundreds! How many guys like Owens and Gargano have come around WWE and reached their levels? You can count that on one hand. People like Theory are a dime-a-dozen, while people like Owens and Gargano are one-in-a-million. People need people like Owens and Gargano because they are the heartbeat of this business. Theory and people like him are the appendix of the business: completely expendable. Owens knows he’s upsetting him, but he wishes him well. Owens doesn’t think he has the potential to be the future. Owens tells him to prove him wrong. Theory needs to stop thinking about the moments that were handed to him and create real ones. Let his passion drive him to get better and leave everything in this ring. Owens shoves him and says that’s how Theory will prove him wrong. That’s how he’ll become the future and the face of WWE.
A LOUD “KO” chant picks up. Theory looks crazed before flexing his bicep. Theory says Owens will never be like him. Owens sighs and says talking sense didn’t work. Maybe this will. Owens viciously slaps him in the face. Theory turns and is seething. His bottom lip looks swollen. They get into a huge brawl before referees run down to separate them. Theory and Owens continually break away from them and continue to brawl. Theory is pulled out of the ring, so Owens charges and knocks him into the barricade. They fight into the ring. Theory goes to hit him with the briefcase, but Owens ducks. Owens goes for a Stunner, but Theory gets out of the ring. Theory’s nose is busted open. Owens shouts, “That broken nose is just the beginning, bitch!”
Bianca Belair will issue an Open Challenge for the Raw Women’s Championship next.
Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair makes her way to the ring to a big reception. An “EST” chant picks up. If she’s learned anything from these past few weeks, it’s that she always needs to stay ready. As champion, she always has a target on her back. That’s why she decided to issue an Open Challenge for the Raw Women’s Championship. She’s the EST of WWE and you can’t whoop her. If anyone wants a piece of the EST, who will it be?
Sonya Deville answers the call. Deville asks why Belair looks so confused. Deville hasn’t forgotten what she did to her. Belair didn’t just make a mockery out of her job, but she cost her that job. Belair tells her to shut up. This is an open challenge, not an open mic. It’s time to get this thing started.

They did exactly what they said they would. Bayley said they would take control of this whole division. Tonight was just the beginning. Since she’s out here, she wants to talk about Belair’s victory. Did that make her feel better? Bayley thinks it did. Bayley says that fed just a little bit of her big, fat ego. Bayley wants to be truthful with all their beautiful fans. Belair won’t be able to sleep at night until she gets a match with Bayley. Is Belair sure that’s what she wants? Belair should be embarrassed. Bayley hadn’t wrestled in a year and she still pinned her, something no one did for over 300 days. Belair will have her match when the time is right. The crowd is loudly booing.
