We begin with a recap of last night’s main event at Hell In a Cell.
Out comes Drew McIntyre. He says that he isn’t going to make excuses for last night, and vows to become WWE Champiom again. He references a quote from the movie Rocky that says it’s not about how hard you can hit, but how hard you get hit and keep fighting.
People may expect him to be mad, but if we could read Drew’s mind right now, you’d be scared. He’s interrupted by The Miz and John Morrison. Drew says they need to choose their words wisely. Morrison says he had a great run, but Miz says it’s not as great as being Mr. Money In The Bank. Morrison says Drew isn’t a loser, but he’s not a winner.
Miz remembers cashing in on Orton 10 years ago. He also says he would have cashed in on Drew if he retained the title, putting himself in the same situation he’s in now. Morrison mocks him further before Drew sends both Miz and Morrison flying with suplexes. Miz briefly targets Drew’s knee before both escape. Drew cracks Morrison’s sunglasses. Miz and Morrison escapes and Drew says he has an idea and it’s gonna be a bad night for both of them.
AJ Styles comes out and says he’s the face that runs the place and his associate’s face is a face that doesn’t want to be talked to. He then calls Jeff the biggest cheater in WWE history because if he tries what he did to Elias last night to him, his associate will make sure Jeff will never put down the bottle.
AJ Styles vs. Jeff Hardy – Survivor Series Qualifying Match
Styles wins with the Phenomenal Forearm.
Winner: AJ Styles
After the match, Elias strikes Jeff from behind with a guitar.
R-Truth is backstage and he’s asked about the people coming for his title. His opponents are in a tag match and he’s coming out to scout them. When asked if he’s taking a dangerous risk, he says that it’s dangerous, but he eats dangerously, sleeps dangerously and his middle name is F. Roosevelt Sleep Dangerously Truth.
Lucha House Party vs. Akira Tozawa and Drew Gulak
Truth comes out and Tozawa tries to pin him and fails. He attacks people left and right and for some reason the tag match doesn’t end in a disqualification, and the match ends when Kalisto gets a flying crossbody on Gulak.
Winners: Lucha House Party
After the match, everyone tries to pin Truth and fails. Truth runs away while everyone else gives chase.
Back from the break and it’s time for the Firefly Fun House. Bray Wyatt appears as we see his puppets having a tea party. Wyatt says his special guest is about to arrive. Alexa Blissapologizes for being late, but she brought tea. Splendid!, says Wyatt. Bliss made the tea extra special, just for Ramblin’ Rabbit. He says it’s extra delicious and asks what’s in it. Strawberry, peach, sugar and a secret ingredient. Rabbit wants to know what the ingredient is. Bliss laughs and says it’s arsenic. Ramblin’ Rabbit starts dying once again. Wyatt laughs and says it looks like Bliss is fitting right in. Wyatt says he’s mad, Bliss is mad, we’re all a little mad around here. Bliss asks how he knows she’s mad. He says she wouldn’t be here if she wasn’t. He goes on about how you don’t have to run from anything here… He protects you and there’s only one thing you have to do. Bliss snaps into a trance now and looks possessed. “Let. Him. In,” she adds.
Bliss snaps back out of it and says our fun is just getting started tonight because she gets to chat with new WWE Champion Randy Orton later tonight on “A Moment of Bliss.” We see Wyatt now, staring straight ahead and apparently thinking back to the Wyatt Family Compound burning down because of Orton. Ramblin’ Rabbit comes to but Wyatt ends up beating on him with the branding iron as Bliss laughs away. Wyatt says he cannot wait to see Orton on “A Moment of Bliss” tonight because it’s going to be fire. Bliss and Wyatt wave goodbye to everyone to end the segment.
– The announcers show us recent happenings between Keith Lee and Braun Strowman. Lee is backstage with Charly Caruso now. Lee says Strowman couldn’t beat him clean last week so he went below the belt and took the cheap way out. Lee says Braun likes to call himself The Monster but next time they meet, he will show him what a real monster looks like. Lee says but not tonight because he’s focused on going to Survivor Series to be on Team RAW. Lee goes on and says he’s about to walk with Elias. Lee walks off and we go to commercial.
Elias is out and says that he’s ready to put Jeff Hardy behind him, and keep the celebration going by defeating Keith Lee.
