Drew McIntyre kicks us off and runs down the Crown Jewel match card. He says people will be talking about Drew and Big E because he will become a 3 time WWE Champion, and he tells Big E he won’t let this opportunity slip from his fingers to win it again before going to SmackDown. He says he has a story to tell before Big E comes out.
Big E understands why Drew wants to be champion, because the spoils of being champion are so sweet, the nectar goes down his nipples (?). Drew is a specimen and incredibly accomplished, but he will never take that title from him. The train has already left the station and Drew has two options. He can either jump on board, or his sword-wielding ass can stay on the railroad tracks and get run over.
Drew says there’s quite an adrenaline rush when Big E became champion, and asks Big E to remember how it felt. Drew is a 2 time WWE Champion, and held the title for 300 days, and he’s proud of what he did as champion, leading the company through uncertain times and still entertaining the fans and his time will come again. Just as he ran through Goldberg, Orton and so many others, he’s going to run through Big E. They’re interrupted by The Usos.
Jimmy says he’s pumped for that match and asks Jey who he got. Jey says he’s with Big E. Jimmy says Drew got that Claymore on smack. Drew asks what they’re doing here. The Usos say the Bloodline is in their city and do what they want when they run with the Tribal Chief. Everyone knows Roman will beat Brock, but everyone also wants to know who will walk out of Crown Jewel victorious. Is it Big E or Drew McIntyre? Jimmy tells Drew to be careful because if comes across Roman on Friday nights, he may become WWE Champion as well. And they tell Big E, they have plans for New Day.
Its Big E vs. Roman at Survivor Series if he wins at Crown Jewel, and they got a death wish just like New Day. They the ones. They leave, but Big E says they’re not gonna leave after talking like that. Big E says he can speak on behalf of Drew, Drew says no he can’t. The Usos say they can speak on behalf of everyone when they challenge Big E and Drew for a tag match tonight. Drew accepts on behalf of Big E. The two argue before The Usos push them both and drop them with super kicks respectively before leaving.
New Day are backstage and are asked if Xavier and Kofi have to face each other in the KOTR tournament. Their music hits and they immediately leave.

Becky talks the talk but doesn’t walk the walk and Bianca is only good for riding off the momentum of others, and she’s beaten Sasha more times than she can count. She hopes Sasha wins with the title at Crown Jewel so she can slap the smirk off her face, win the title and become a double champion once again.

Back from the break and we see what happened between Goldberg and Lashley last week. Lashley is in the ring now. He says people are asking why he made the challenge for a No Holds Barred match. He brings up how Goldberg threatened his life last week. Lashley goes on about how he’s a better Superstar than Goldberg, who came in here last week wearing cutoff sleeves and yelling about murder. Really classy, he says. Lashley says he can’t go into a match with a man screaming and foaming at the mouth. He says the icon of Goldberg has been reduced to a rabid dog, one that needs to be put down. Lashley says at Crown Jewel he will finally end Goldberg’s career. No longer will Goldberg ride in here and try to end someone’s career, then ride off into the sunset.
Lashley says there will be no misunderstandings because Goldberg can’t beat The All Mighty, can’t hurt The All Mighty, and damn sure can’t kill The All Mighty. Lashley drops the mic and walks off as his music hits.
