Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw.
We are in Austin, Texas and your announcers are Michael Cole, Renee Young, and Corey Graves.
Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.
We are reminded of comments from Stephanie McMahon about the briefcase situation and we are told that Brock will cash in tonight.
Shane McMahon comes out and he interrupts Roman before he can speak.
Shane mentions that they will be face to face on Friday and he cannot wait to shut Roman up. He is not just called the Best in the World, he is the best in the world in the ring. Shane says he gets better with age. He will beat Roman from side to side and then he will fly through the air and go coast to coast. He will either pin Roman or make Roman tap out to the triangle. Shane says that wouldn’t satisfy him. Shane says he will not release the hold because he does not have to. He will make Roman’s eyes bulge out of his head.
Roman says he would love to see Shane try to tap him out. Roman says he will pick Shane up if he tries that and send him through the mat. You don’t stand a chance in the ring against him. The only reason you are still out here is because you rely on help from others, like Drew McIntyre. After he is done with Shane, he will stomp Drew’s ass at Stomping Ground.
Drew comes out and he says he does not like Texas’ attitude for the way they reacted to him and Shane. Drew tells Roman his mind is all over the place. What Shane said was correct. After Shane is done with you, he will decimate you at Stomping Ground. You need to worry about the present. Drew says he has an idea and he says something to Shane. Drew says he does not need his partners.
The Revival attack Roman from behind and then the Usos make their way to the ring and an official comes into the ring.

Miz makes his way to the ring for MizTV.
Miz throws out an alright alright alright before doing the intro for MizTV. Miz says tonight is not about him, it is about Brock’s cash in. Without further ado, Miz brings out the Universal Champion Seth Rollins.
Miz mentions Seth’s match against Baron Corbin on Friday, but it could all change based on Brock’s cash in tonight. He asks Seth what is going through his mind.
Seth says we are assuming Brock will show up tonight. We are assuming Paul Heyman is telling the truth, and the last time that happened was . . . never. While he is prepared, he will believe it when he sees it.
Miz says something appears to be on Seth’s mind and he brings up their success with the briefcase, but the case is in Brock’s hands.
Seth says he knows the gravity of the situation. If Brock cashed in tonight, he would be relieved. He cannot focus on what might be but what will be. Friday, he will be defending his Universal Championship against Baron Corbin. Nobody likes Baron Corbin, but he did win the Fatal Four Way Match and he is the number one contender. If he is going to be the fighting champion, he needs to focus on Baron Corbin and stomping his head into the mat.
We see a vehicle arrive at the arena and what a coincidence, Paul Heyman emerges and he is joined by the Human Beat Box himself. They stop at the curtain to go to the ring but Brock decides to go down the other hallway instead.
We go to commercial.
