“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.
Miz TV with special guest Roman Reigns
The Miz’ music hits, and he’s already in the ring with The Miztourage. We’re set for another episode of Miz TV. Last night, The Miz defeated Jason Jordan to retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship with an assist from The Miztourage. Miz welcomes the crowd to Miz TV. After last night’s victory, tonight is a night of celebration. We are in Southern California. After Miz TV is over, he’s going to drive to his home in Hollywood Hills, slide next to his pregnant wife, and discuss their unborn child’s future. His child won’t be a loser like Kurt Angle’s son, Jason Jordan.
Before he does that, he’d like to get to his guest. He’s the so called “Big Dog” of WWE. Last night, he had an historic victory over John Cena. Miz tells them to get out of their seats and welcome his guest, Roman Reigns. The crowd boos him while he makes his entrance. Reigns takes his time getting into the ring. The crowd boos him the whole time. Miz apologizes for the crowd and welcomes him to the show. Reigns says he likes it loud, but that doesn’t get a loud reaction. Miz mentions that Reigns beat Undertaker at WrestleMania and had an equally impressive victory against John Cena. On RAW Talk, Cena said this was a “passing of the torch moment.” How does he feel with that coming from Cena? Reigns says he’ll cut to the chase and says he respects John Cena now. Cena said a lot of stuff to him and backed it all up in the ring. The fact is Cena did it for 15 years. There’s not another top guy that can say that. That’s why he’s proud to say that he beat Cena last night. It was the biggest win he’s ever had in his entire career. Miz wasn’t the only one celebrating. Reigns had a long night and has a hurt back and doesn’t understand why he’s talking to an idiot like Miz.
Miz says Reigns is THE guy, but THE guy in the ring is the guy with the championships. At No Mercy, he retained his title and made it the most prestigious title in WWE. Miz proved that Jason Jordan is nothing but a loser. Reigns says he’s been in the ring with Miz and Jordan, and Jordan is a thoroughbred. Miz couldn’t beat him one-on-one. If it weren’t for The Miztourage, he’d have lost. In fact, they can run to the back and get him a beer. Miz says this is a classy establishment and there is no beer drinking on Miz TV. It’s funny Reigns said that to him because when he first came to WWE, he rode the coattails of two other superstars. Five years ago, if The Miztourage was around, no one would remember The Shield. Miz asks him to ponder what would happen if The Miztourage beat The Shield. Reigns says they’d have whooped their ass no problem. Miz won’t get that because Dean and Seth are doing their thing, and he’s doing his. Reigns is going after The Beast for the Universal Championship. Miz mentions how many times Reigns choked against Samoa Joe, Braun Strowman, and Brock Lesnar. Reigns has never been Universal Champion, but he acts like he’s better than Miz. Miz has carried this show and made the title what it is today. Miz will not be disrespected. Reigns suggests they have a match. Reigns asks the crowd if they want to see him beat The Miz tonight. Miz yells that he has a suit on. Miz quickly leaves the ring.
Kurt Angle’s music hits, and the RAW General Manager makes his way to the stage to a big reaction. Angle tells Miz to tell Maryse he’ll be home late tonight because he loves the idea of a match with him and Roman Reigns tonight. The Miztourage is also in action right now. Jeff Hardy’s shoulder may be busted up, but his brother Matt is ready to go with his tag team partner, his son Jason Jordan.

Alexa Bliss gloats about her victory at No Mercy
RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss makes her way to the ring. Bliss says she knows she doesn’t always see eye to eye with the crowd, but she thinks of them as friends. You have to be honest with your friends. She has to tell them the truth. She is very disappointed in each and every one of them. She beat four women last night. They were the best Monday Night RAW has to offer in Bayley, Emma, Sasha Banks, and Nia Jax. This morning, she checked her phone and expected to see people congratulating her. It was full of nonsense and gossip. People are wondering about Sasha and Bayley or talking about Asuka debuting at WWE TLC. She asks what’s wrong with them. They’re so fascinated with what will happen tomorrow that they don’t appreciate being in the presence of a goddess right now. She doesn’t need this disrespect from them. She cleaned out the entire Women’s Division.
Mickie James’ music hits, and she comes out to the ring. James says Bliss had a great night last night, but she wasn’t in that match. Bliss hasn’t beat her yet. James says after her great night, Bliss had some real tall talk on RAW Talk. James invites her to say what she said again. Bliss says she respects James. If she didn’t, she wouldn’t have brought her back to WWE. James might actually be on her Top 8 on MySpace, which is when James was relevant. James asks if she’s scared. Bliss thinks James has a lot to offer WWE. She still has a few fans that think she’s still got it. Bliss thinks it’s great that James’ demographic has someone to represent them. In the ring, she respects James, but she doesn’t want to see her break a hip. James says the last thing she needs is someone like Bliss run down her accolades. She knows who she is. She’s a six-time Women’s Champion and has broken bones, hearts, and barriers for women in WWE all before Bliss was wearing a training bra, which is obviously still working out well for her. What she wants is Bliss to repeat what she said on RAW Talk like a real woman — to her face. James says Bliss either says what she says or she gets out of the ring because this place is no place for a coward. Bliss says that James is an old lady. James slaps her and takes her down with a Mick Kick. Bliss rolls out of the ring and retreats.

Finn Bálor is walking backstage when he sees Goldust. Bálor calls him “Goldy.” Goldust says he knows he’s an extraordinary man, but what gives him the right to take shots at his expense. Goldust is not a victory. He didn’t ask for Bálor’s help and didn’t need it. Goldust can do it all by himself. Bálor says he has nothing but respect for him and considers him a friend. Bálor apologizes for offending him in any way. Goldust says maybe Bálor is right and apologizes. Goldust then attacks Bálor and slams him onto a steel structure.

Enzo Amore’s Cruiserweight Championship Celebration
Enzo Amore’s music hits, and the WWE Cruiserweight Champion comes out to a better reception than he’s received in recent weeks. Enzo goes through his usual shtick while the crowd says it along with him. Enzo gets in the ring and says it was all a dream until it became a reality. Enzo Amore is your new Cruiserweight Champion. That gets a so-so reaction. Enzo says he woke up this morning in his California king bed. He looked over and saw the most beautiful woman he’d ever laid eyes on, and he started reflecting. In the past couple of months, he’s dealt with some real haters. Over the last few months, he’s received some major scrutiny and ate some humble pie, but he’s full now. They’re just jealous like his former tag team partner Big Cass. The last time he saw him, he was hobbling and crying out of a Brooklyn arena. That schmuck said he held him back, but he has a title and Cass has a bad knee. Enzo held Cass up. When he thinks about the WWE Universe and the “You Can’t Wrestle” chants, those same words were once said to John Cena, Batista, and The Rock. They had mainstream power like he does. At the end of the day, he really did it. In order to celebrate his win, he’s going to retire his jersey and unveils it. Enzo also did something the other Cruiserweights couldn’t do – make 205 Live relevant.
The entire roster of Cruiserweights come out to the 205 Live music, which Enzo calls terrible. Enzo calls them all a bunch of haters. Enzo says he can see “Richie Swann,” and he calls him small. Swann danced his way to a title and then danced his way to being a nobody. Enzo then calls out Cedric Alexander and says he’s the man charisma forgot. As for Gran Metalik, he likes him but he’s got nerve coming out here. With a gut like his, there’s no way he’s under 205. As for Drew Gulak, he’s happy he doesn’t have his Captain Underpants gear on tonight.
Enzo keeps on going until Neville’s music hits, and he comes out with dark circles under his eyes and looking lethargic. Enzo says Neville’s crown is on the shoulder of a real man. Enzo says with the satellite disks he has for ears, he heard him. The truth hurts. Enzo dances around the ring while holding up the title. Neville says Enzo is right. The truth is brutal. The truth is that Enzo is such an unbearable, toxic individual that he’s alienated everyone he’s come into contact with. The crowd cheers that. Enzo arrived on Monday Night RAW to much fanfare, but two years later he was dumped on their doorstep like an unwanted little slug because no one wants him. If it were left to him, he’d have left Enzo out in the cold to rot. It was the Cruiserweights behind him, the so-called “nobodies,” that insisted he gets an opportunity. Is this how he repays them? Enzo says he repays them by making them stars. Neville says Enzo is nothing but a disgrace and made a joke out of them, this division, and his Cruiserweight Championship. When Enzo kicked him where the sun doesn’t shine, he made a joke out of Neville. Now on behalf of the entire Cruiserweight Division, he is here to end him.
Neville drops the microphone and charges the ring. Enzo holds up the clause that says if he lays a hand on him, he won’t get a title opportunity. Enzo says this is the last hour of RAW. This is the main event. In nine months of holding the title, Neville never sniffed this hour. That’s the truth, and he knows it. The reason he’s out here with these Cruiserweights is because he’s a star. Neville and the Cruiserweights can’t touch his merchandise checks. Enzo tells him to get out of the ring and go home. Neville spin kicks him and sends him into the framed jersey. Neville throws him out of the ring and drives him into the barricade. Neville drives him into the barricade a second time. Enzo tries to run away, but the Cruiserweights back him up to the ring. They hate him. Neville puts Enzo in the ring and shoves the no contact clause in his mouth before kicking him in the face. The crowd and the Cruiserweights are clapping. Neville then sets him up and hits the Red Arrow to a decent reception. Enzo is left laying to end the show.
