We open the show with a recap of Night 1 of the draft.
Out comes Becky Lynch. It’s been about 1.5 years since Becky has been on Monday Night, but she’s about to make executives unhappy, but she does what she wants. The first pick for RAW tonight is none other than herself. She holds the SD Women’s Title, but she was the longest reigning RAW Women’s Title and she never lost it. The person who holds it now has gone back and forth with her, but Becky has always done better than Charlotte could ever think. So it may be time to become Becky 2 Belts once again. This brings Charlotte Flair.
Charlotte reminds Becky that before she was Becky 2 belts, she was Becky Pre-Show. She made her famous and she needs to get over her inferiority complex and quit looking up to her. They have unfinished business as well. Out comes Bianca Belair. Everyone’s talking about unfinished business, but she has unfinished business with the both of them. They just feel threatened, because they both took cheap shots against her. The way she sees it, neither of them are ready for them to be the EST of Monday Night RAW.
Charlotte shushes Bianca because the champs are trying to have a conversation. Bianca takes exception, because Flair don’t even go here. Bianca tells Becky to hold Charlotte back cause she don’t know her.
Charlotte said Bianca almost accomplished as much as her, but she should be asking for her autograph for paving the way for her. Becky wonders what would happen if Bianca faced Charlotte, since they never fought. Charlotte tells Bianca that she only gives out opportunities, not charities. Bianca says she has something she can give her too.
Adam Pearce says they’re looking at a hell of a main event. Deville announces Bianca/Charlotte for the main event, and a rematch for the women’s tag team championships between Nikki A.S.H and Rhea Ripley and Natalya/Tamina. Damian Priest will take on Jeff Hardy for the US Title.
The first pick on Night 2 is Becky Lynch to RAW. The second pick for SmackDown is The Usos. Paul Heyman is backstage thanking the Lord. The third pick for RAW is Bobby Lashley. The final pick of the first round for SmackDown is Sasha Banks.
Damian Priest (C) vs. Jeff Hardy – United States Championship
Hardy hits the Swanton Bomb and he goes for the pin. Priest kicks out and turns it immediately into a pin of his own for the win.
Winner: Damian Priest
Jeff is interviewed after the match. He says he’s been through the highest of highs and he’s crashed down to reality from time to time. He says he thinks SmackDown is the perfect chance fo see a different side of Jeff Hardy.
A different ego. While he’s speaking, new RAW draftee Austin Theory interrupts him. His dream came true, he’s on RAW and can share the ring with him. He grew up watching him and he inspired him to be where he is. He asks for a selfie. He takes out his cell phone and takes one before attacking him and taking him out. He takes a selfie while he’s on the floor.
RK-Bro is interviewed and are asked about their rematch against AJ and Omos at Crown Jewel. Riddle says Orton looks like a snake sitting in the sun and he missed him last week. Orton wants to shut AJ and Omos once and for all. Tonight is a special night, because tonight he has a proposition. Omos, he thinks it’s time to finally one on one with the Legend Killer. Riddle looks shocked.

Out comes Big E. Big E says the last week has been met with some challenges. He is separated from New Day in the draft the second straight year. He was also in the most grueling match of his career, but made Bobby Lashley to fall to his knees and showed the world he is the rightful WWE Champion. In typical WWE fashion, the next challenger declared himself, Drew McIntyre. Before he wastes any more time, he asks Drew to come on down.
Drew says it’s a Drew day. Even though he was drafted to SmackDown, he has unfinished business on RAW. He was waiting for someone to liberate the WWE Title and defeat Lashley. This is the part where someone pushes your button and to accept a challenge. Drew says he deserves to be WWE Champion. Drew also says he does things the old fashioned way. He’s not gonna tweet a congratulations. He’s going to look him in the eye and congratulate him. BUT, technically, he did cash in on an injured Lashley. Although technically Lashley screwed him, but Lashley deserved it. And now Drew challenges Big E for the WWE Title. As the challenge is thrown, Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler comes out. Roode says they’ve been waiting for when their names are called, but they were overhearing their story backstage.
Dolph is genuinely proud of Big E and congratulates him. But it’s an inspirational story nonetheless, and he wonders why he forgot to thank Dolph. Big E wonders why. Dolph understands when you grow you forget. So he rolls vintage film of Big E when he was aligned with Dolph in 2013. Dolph takes credit for his mentoring, and without him there’s no Big E, there’s no New Day, no Money In The Bank cash-in, no title.
Drew suggests he might have a point. Dolph says Drew’s next, cause his career was floundering and Dolph brought it out of the gutter in 2018. Dolph says all he ever wanted was a simple thank you. Drew questions how much of an upgrade Roode is over either of them. Roode says he’s twice the man Drew ever was. Roode is called Big Bob, not Big E. And he puts the body in bodyguard. Big E says no one calls them that. Big E says they don’t owe them anything but an ass whoopin.
Big E and Drew McIntyre vs. Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler
Big E goes for the Big Ending on Ziggler, but Drew gets the pin when he tags himself in and he gets the Claymore on Ziggler.
Winner: Big E and Drew McIntyre
After the match, Robert Roode attempts to attack Big E and he gets the Big Ending. Drew hands the WWE Title to Big E and Big E says it’s on at Crown Jewel.
Reggie approached Adam Pearce about the draft but he’s on a call. Meanwhile, he escapes The Viking Raiders, Jaxson Ryker, Truth and Drake Maverick. He runs into Apollo Crews and Commander Azeez before driving away in a golf cart backstage.
Out comes Kevin Owens. He’s immediately interrupted by Akira Tozawa. He welcomes KO back to RAW and demands a match for the 24/7 Title before giving Akira a Stunner.
In the 4th round, RAW selects the Street Profits. The send pick is The Viking Raiders to SmackDown. RAW selects Finn Balor next. The final pick of the 4th round to SmackDown is Ricochet.

The first pick of the 5th round is Karrion Kross to RAW. The second pick is Angel Garza and Humberto Carrillo to SmackDown. The third pick is Alexa Bliss to RAW. The fourth pick is Cesaro to SmackDown.
Out comes Goldberg. Bobby Lashley has the audacity to claim what he did to his son was an accident. He’s falling out Lashley right now to intentionally break his neck. Bobby tells Goldberg once again that it was an misunderstanding. And he’s not gonna ruin his custom made suit just to kick his ass, he doesn’t dress like it’s 1998. He takes offense to the character assasination Goldberg has been on. He’ll give him his match at Crown Jewel only if it’s No Holds Barred.
Goldberg says that match gives him a license to kill. If he wants an apology, he’ll apologize to Lashley’s kids for what he’ll do to him at Crown Jewel, because he’s next and he’s dead. Lashley says he can’t kill the Almighty. He says this time, what he does to his son won’t be a misunderstanding. What would Goldberg do if someone jumped on his back. The Hurt Business jump Goldberg from behind before he fights them off and spears Cedric Alexander.
Recap of RAW’s draft picks.
