We go right to the ring and out comes Drew McIntyre to pyro. We see how McIntyre earned a WrestleMania Backlash title shot from WWE Champion Bobby Lashley, and was then attacked by former RETRIBUTION members T-BAR and Mace, who were apparently hired by MVP.

Drew talks opportunities and how Braun Strowman and Randy Orton wanted WWE Title shots last week, which led to Adam Pearce making the Triple Threat. Drew says he earned his next title shot by beating two of the top Superstars on RAW and now he stands here as our #1 contender. He wants to talk about Mace and T-BAR now. They decided to make their name on Drew McIntyre last week. He knows MVP was the mastermind of this. He taunts them and jokes that he will get a little “retribution” when he gets his hands on them. Drew says he feels like a fight. The music interrupts and out comes MVP. Drew says that’s just the man he wanted to see.

MVP came to address these ridiculous allegations. MVP mentions how Lashley put him to sleep at WrestleMania 37 when he wasn’t expecting it, then he wasn’t expecting T-BAR and Mace last week. MVP says maybe Drew should start expecting the unexpected. MVP congratulates Drew on last week’s win because Lashley believes he will be a worthy adversary when he beats him at Backlash, again, and puts him to sleep with The Hurt Lock, again. Drew asks MVP if he’s really going to stand here and act like he had nothing to do with last week’s attack.


MVP goes on about how he works for Lashley and how Lashley recently down-sized The Hurt Business. Why would they hire T-BAR and Mace to attack Drew when Lashley already proved he can beat Drew by himself? Drew points to how Lashley had the whole locker room gunning for him before WrestleMania. MVP declares that Mace and T-BAR have zero affiliation with The Hurt Business. Zero. MVP wonders if Drew made some enemies with his recent locker room speech. Drew slowly exits the ring and wonders about coincidences. He approaches MVP but T-BAR and Mace suddenly attack at ringside.


T-BAR and Mace bring Drew into the ring as fans boo. They deliver High Justice in the middle of the ring as MVP watches from the bottom of the ramp. T-BAR and Mace then exit the ring and walk right past MVP without saying anything. MVP smirks and watches as Drew tries to recover in the ring.

– Kevin Patrick stops T-BAR and Mace backstage. They are confident about finishing off Drew McIntyre later on. We go to a replay of what just happened. We see Drew recover in the ring and seethe as we go to commercial.

– Backstage, Drew McIntyre demands Adam Pearce make a match for Drew against T-Bar and Mace and suggests he can do it on his own because he’s right. Pearce is insistent that he can’t do it on his own and he needs a partner. Drew tells Adam to make the match or he’ll regret it.


The Viking Raiders vs. Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin

Raiders win with the Viking Experience.


Winners: The Viking Raiders

After the match, Erik and Ivar celebrate as their music hits. We go to replays. The Vikings continue the celebration as Shelton and Cedric recover.

– Patrick is backstage with Randy Orton now. He asks if “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt is no more after last week? Orton says to mark his words… The Fiend will never be seen or heard from in WWE… as long as Orton is around. Orton goes on about Drew McIntyre getting lucky last week to become the new #1 contender for Bobby Lashley. Orton says the WWE Champion after WrestleMania Backlash will have a target on his back as Orton comes for what he truly cares about… the WWE Title. Riddle comes riding up on his scooter, congratulating Orton on the WrestleMania 37 win and ranting like he usually does. Riddle suggests they form a tag team called RK-Bro, with matching scooters and everything. Orton just walks off. Riddle shrugs at Patrick as we go to commercial.

– Back from the break and Randy Orton is talking to Adam Pearce about Riddle, but he doesn’t even know his name. Orton wants the guy in the ring tonight. Pearce says he will see what he can do to make it happen. Orton walks off.

We get a video package looking at how Charlotte Flair returned last week to attack Asuka and RAW Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley.


– We go back to the ring and out comes Charlotte Flair. She walks down the ramp and poses as pyro goes off in the arena. Back to commercial.

Back from the break and Flair has a mic in the middle of the ring as fans boo her in the arena. Flair says she came back to RAW last week simply demanding respect from the women’s locker room and the WWE Universe. She didn’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings, she was just expressing how she felt. She goes on about WrestleMania 37 and how the women in the back are so lame and fake to each other. She doesn’t even now why they’re mad at her, they didn’t have a match taken from them like Flair did. She says they work all year for a WrestleMania match and hers was taken from her. Big deal, RAW Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley beat Asuka but Flair can beat them each, or both in the same night. That’s why they call her The Opportunity.

Flair says she’s going to give Asuka the opportunity tonight and show Ripley why she’s the face of the division. She respects Asuka but doesn’t like her, and will remind Asuka how much she dislikes her tonight, and prove why she is The Queen and why… the music interrupts and out comes Asuka to a pop. Asuka enters the ring but the music immediately interrupts as Ripley makes her way out to the stage with a mic. Flair asks if they’re going to gang up on her. She wants Ripely to have a seat at ringside to take notes on how great Flair is. Ripley says she’s actually going to take Flair up on that offer, but knowing Asuka, she pretty much knows Flair is going to get beat.


Flair talks down to Asuka and they have some words. Flair won’t let her speak. Asuka yells at her to shut up again, and says tonight she will beat Flair… b—h! The crowd pops for Asuka as she drops the mic. A shocked Flair looks on. Asuka exits the ring as Ripley watches from the stage, smiling.

– Randy Orton is backstage walking when Riddle flies past him on the scooter. Orton is seething. Still to come, Riddle vs. Orton. Back to commercial.

Randy Orton vs. Riddle

Riddle gets the pin out of nowhere with a flash crucifix out of an RKO.


Winner: Riddle

Adam Pearce is talking backstage and Sheamus approaches him. He congratulates Sheamus on winning the US Title at WrestleMania. But Sheamus says he wasn’t brought into his office just to stroke his ego. Pearce says he wants Sheamus to think about the legacy of the title and the superstars who have held it. One such former champion defended the title every week on RAW, and his name was John Cena. Adam says Sheamus isn’t John Cena, and Sheamus says he’s right, because he’s better. He assumes Adam wants him to defend the title tonight. He’ll issue an open challenge tonight, but not for the title.

Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler vs. Lana and Naomi

Naomi and Lana hit a double face buster on Shayna for the upset win.

Winners: Lana and Naomi

After the match, Lana and Naomi celebrate as Jax turns around on the stage and sees what just happened. She never got her hands on Rose and Brooke. She’s even angrier now as Lana and Naomi dance in the ring.

The announcers show us how Bad Bunny and Damian Priest defeated The Miz and John Morrison at WrestleMania 37. We also see Priest and Bunny’s lengthy post-match comments in Spanish. The announcers note that Bunny’s 2022 tour is already sold out.

Miz says tonight is their night. He asks for another kiss as pyro explodes inside the arena. Miz says last week was great but this week will be even better because tonight they celebrate the next “Miz & Mrs.” episode and then his WWE 24 documentary premieres on Sunday. Miz raises a toast but the music interrupts and out comes Damian Priest.

Priest marches to the ring and is upset about last week it appears. Priest says he speaks for everyone when he says Miz is as delusional as Jake Paul thinking he’s a real fighter. Priest says Miz forgot to show everyone how he earned his win last week. Priest shows us how Miz and Morrison defeated him in the 2-on-1 Handicap Match last week, with a distraction from Maryse. Priest asks what type of man brags about a win like that. Priest speaks in Spanish but Miz asks what he just said. Priest says Miz got his pants ripped off on national TV last week and everyone saw he has no balls. Priest says he can translate with his fists if that’s not good enough.

Maryse then speaks something in French and says if Priest wants a match, he can have it tonight. Priest goes to leave but congratulates Miz first, then takes a sip of the champagne. He says it tastes like trash. Maryse tosses a glass of champagne to Priest’s face, minus the glass, as she and Miz head for the ramp. Priest looks on and seethes as Miz’s music starts up.

– Still to come, a special edition of MizTV to celebrate the successful season premiere of Miz & Mrs. Back to commercial.

– Back from the break and it’s time for another must see special edition of MizTV as The Miz is out with his wife Maryse. There’s champagne and ice in the middle of the ring.

Miz introduces his wife and talks about how good his last week was, including his so-called WrestleMania 37 win. They comment on the success of the “Miz & Mrs.” season premiere and Maryse thanks everyone for watching. She goes on about how awesome of a husband and father Miz is, and says she truly believes he is the greatest WWE Superstar. They go on and profess their love for each other as the boos start up. Miz says they are anything but ordinary and tonight they deserve a special celebration.

The New Day is walking backstage when Riddle rides up on his scooter. They give him props for his win over Randy Orton. They do some comedy together before Riddle rides off. Still to come, Elias vs. Kofi Kingston. Back to commercial.

– We see Alexa Bliss backstage at Alexa’s Playground with her new friend, Lilly. Back to commercial.

– Back from the break and it’ time for Alexa’s Playground. Alexa Bliss is sitting on her swing and her new friend Lilly is siting on a swing next to her.

Bliss says Lilly didn’t just come into her life around WrestleMania 37, they’ve been best friends for a very long time. We see some of Bliss’ childhood photos with Lilly added to them. Bliss recalls how a little girl was mean to her on the playground and wouldn’t let her have a bite of her ice cream cone. Bliss says she pushed that little b—h off the swing. She fell, broke her arm, and Bliss got to eat all her ice cream. Bliss says when the teachers asked her why she pushed the mean little girl, she told the truth… Lilly made me do it.

The teachers thought she was bonkers but if Lilly doesn’t like somebody, she has no problem letting you know. Lilly is apparently speaking to Bliss as she tells it she will get to the point. Bliss tells all the “little girls” of the RAW locker room that there is something they should know. Lilly didn’t like “him” and she doesn’t like any of you. This is a reference to Bliss turning on “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. Bliss starts laughing and swinging again. She looks over at Lilly as we get a close-up of the creepy doll. Lilly laughs and snaps at the camera.

We see what happened earlier tonight with Dana Brooke, Mandy Rose, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler. Sarah Schreiber stops Rose and Brooke backstage, asking if it was appropriate behavior we saw earlier. Rose says they are not the bullies, Jax and Baszler are the bullies. Rose admits she slipped at WrestleMania but Jax and Baszler just kept watching it over and over. Jax comes up yelling “hey!” and they quickly walk away. Baszler is right behind Jax. She’s not happy with Jax being so distracted. Baszler says Jax better start paying attention or else. Baszler storms off as Jax asks her or else what? Angel Garza suddenly appears next to Jax. He asks her what she sees in Reginald the sommelier. Garza walks off as Jax starts to think about it.

Drew McIntyre vs. T-Bar and Mace – Handicap Match

T-Bar and Mace jump Drew in the corner and the ref has no choice but to call the bell.

Winner by DQ: Drew McIntyre

After the bell, The music interrupts and out comes Braun Strowman to make the save. T-BAR and Mace retreat to the floor as Strowman hits the ring. We go to commercial with Strowman yelling out at Mace and T-BAR.

Damian Priest vs. The Miz

Priest wins with Hit The Lights.

Winner: Damian Priest

Sheamus tells everyone he will be their fighting champion, which means he’s going to issue an Open Challenge for the title each and every week on RAW… or whenever he wants. Sheamus calls everyone out and the music hits. Out comes Humberto Carrillo.

Carrillo hits the ring and poses but Sheamus attacks him from behind and beats him down as fans boo. Sheamus tosses Carrillo out of the ring to the floor. Sheamus takes off his coat and follows, leveling Carrillo a ringside with a clothesline. Sheamus grabs Carrillo, talks some trash and then runs him into the barrier, and again, and again. Sheamus unloads with big forearm strikes now to beat Carrillo back down on the floor at ringside. Sheamus scoops Carrillo and rams his back into the ring post. Sheamus follows back into the ring as the boos continue. Sheamus waits in the corner as Carrillo slowly pulls himself up. He turns around to a big Brogue Kick.

Sheamus kneels down in Carrillo’s face and yells about being in a different league, taunting him with the title. The boos get louder as Sheamus puts his hat back on and poses with the title. We go to replays. The music hits as Sheamus heads to the ramp and looks back at the ring while fans continue booing him.

Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair

After a Ripley distraction, Asuka drops Flair with a kick and then pins her with a backslide.

Winner: Asuka

After the match, Asuka stands tall as her music hits. Ripley taunts Flair from ringside as Flair goes to argue with the referee. Flair backs the referee into the corner, then grabs him and launches him across the ring. Flair stomps away on the referee now, keeping him down. She mounts him from behind this time and continues the aggressive beatdown as fans boo. Another referee runs in and tells Flair to get off.

Other officials are in now, ordering Flair to the back. She attacks the same referee again and continues beating on him as the others yell at her and fans boo her. Flair goes to leave the ring but she stops and comes back in through the ropes. The officials warn her but she delivers a punt kick to the ribs of the original referee. The boos get louder now as Flair stands in the middle of the ring. She looks out at the crowd and begins to make her exit as RAW goes off the air.
