– Tonight’s WWE RAW opens up on the USA Network with a look back at last week’s show with WWE Champion Big E vs. Kevin Owens in the non-title match. We’re live from the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky as Big E and Owens are backstage talking. Owens has been working hard to prove he’s not a turncoat like he was in the past. He says Big E is one of the few people who he cares what they think. Owens insists he has no idea Seth Rollins was going to attack last week. Big E listens but just says he has a match tonight and doesn’t care. Big E walks off. Owens mumbles to himself and says he does care.
– We’re live as Jimmy Smith welcomes us to RAW in Louisville. We go right to the ring as Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring while Mike Rome does the introduction. Fans boo as Rollins takes the mic and welcomes us to Monday Night Rollins.
The crowd chants YOU LOOK STUPID and Seth tells them that they know nothing about fashion. He wants to get to the bottom of something tonight, though: Who is Kevin Owens?
Is he the prized fighter, the person to put it all on the line for the WWE Universe? Or is he a skake. A liar. A spineless coward. He’s known Owens for a long time, and there has always been one thing you can count on, and its that he will stab you in the back any chance he gets. Ask Sami Zayn. Ask Kofi Kingston and New Day. Owens is a paramecium.
Here comes Owens to chase Seth out, then back into the ring. Right hand to Seth in the face. He grabs Seth on the outside and hits another right, sets up for a powerbomb on the apron, but Seth grabs the ropes and pulls himself in the ring, only to high tail it out and up the ramp.
Riddle takes forever to say that he’s going to get payback on Omos.
Omos did not attack them, says Orton, but Riddle had to play hero, and got mauled. So let’s not do that again. Orton doesn’t care about The Street Profits. Riddle is offended. He says they are right behind Orton.
Orton turns and The Profits don’t look too happy. Riddle says he wants the smoke. Randy speaks for himself, saying he meant eery word. He doesn’t care what they do in the ring, but if they have a vendetta with Omos, you’re on your own.
RK-Bro and The Street Profits vs. AJ Styles/Omos, Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler
Omos chokeslams Riddle and AJ calls Omos to tag him in for the pin. Ziggler tags himself in. AJ and Omos argue with Dolph and Roode gets in AJ’s face. He shoves AJ before Omos comes in and flings him into the barricade. Riddle is still on the mat and Ziggler pins him for the match.
Winners: AJ Styles, Omos, Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler
After the match, Orton RKO’s Ziggler from behind.
Kevin Owens interrupts Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio backstage. Owens says as he was telling WWE Champion Big E earlier, Rey is another person backstage who he cares about their opinion backstage, and he needs to know Rey believes in him. Rey says he is occupied with something but Owens just needs to know. Rey’s music hits in the arena but Rey says he does believe in Owens. Rey leaves with Dominik and Owens wishes him good luck.

He says Team RAW has to live up to last year’s Team RAW, which swept Team SmackDown 5-0. That is why he asked The Mysterios to come out. Pearce says it’s almost embarrassing to admit this – when the Team RAW roster was announced this past weekend, he couldn’t help but feel like he made a big mistake as every member of Team RAW is a former WWE Champion, except Dominik, and that’s an issue for Pearce. Pearce says Dominik has a ton of potential but he wants Team RAW to win. Don’t get him wrong, though, Dominik is still on Team RAW, unless he loses to this man… Pearce walks off to the back as Rey talks with Dominik. The lightning hits as the music starts up and here comes Bobby Lashley with MVP.

Seth Rollins approaches Big E backstage, coming in peace and not looking for any trouble as he has a match coming up. Rollins says there’s no way Big E or anyone else can believe what comes out of Kevin Owens’ mouth. Rollins says it’s much better to trust the devil he knows, Rollins, instead of the one he doesn’t, Owens. Big E doesn’t trust Rollins or Owens, but he will be sitting at ringside to make sure things go smooth. Rollins walks off.
