Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw.
We are in Jacksonville, Florida and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Jonathan Coachman.
Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring and he is joined by Baron Corbin.
Kurt welcomes everyone to Raw and he says tonight will be historic because Ronda Rousey will make her in ring debut on Raw. Kurt says unlike some former UFC champions, she has no problem competing on Raw. She does not whine or complain. Whether she wins or loses tonight or wins at SummerSlam, Ronda is a champion in his book. Kurt says he wishes he could say the same about Brock.
Kurt says that Brock has no class. Look at what he has done to the fans, the title, and him. Kurt says that since Paul got Brock to the ring before the end of the show, he still has his job. Kurt is about to say what he is going to do to Brock, but he is interrupted by Roman Reigns.
Roman tells Kurt that he has a lot of respect for him as General Manager, but Kurt should have known better. If you kick the Big Dog out, who is going to protect the yard? No one. That is why Brock rag dolled you around the ring. Roman asks Baron what is he laughing at. You just stood there and then when Brock looked at you, Baron ran.
Kurt says nobody liked what Brock did last week and that comes from the top down.
Roman says he does not want them to suspend Brock or postpone the match at SummerSlam.
Kurt says he made sure Brock did not get suspended and Roman will face Brock for the Universal Title at SummerSlam. Kurt says he hopes that Roman kicks his ass. Baron says that is a sound bite and really unprofessional for the General Manager. You cannot pick favorites.
Baron says he did not run off. He chose to be the bigger man. Baron says he already competed and he was worn out from beating little Finn Balor, the guy who won the Universal Championship, unlike Roman. Baron says there is nothing else that he can do.
Kurt says that Baron could have acted like a man last week.
Baron wants to know if Kurt is an example of what a man should do? You shuffle out and you act like this is your show. Stephanie is in charge. You just make matches. Baron says that Kurt cannot be trusted.
Kurt says he just makes the matches. Kurt says he sees a match right here and he wants a referee to come out for Roman Reigns versus Baron Corbin.
