We go into the arena to see Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler brawling on the ramp. Jax throws her down the ramp and into the LED apron. Jax rolls Baszler into the ring and gets inside. Baszler kicks away at her and jumps on her back for a Kirifuda Clutch attempt. Jax backs her into the corner and smashes her into it.
Raquel Rodriguez’s music hits, and she returns to Raw for the first time since being taken out by Jax a few weeks back. Rodriguez runs down to the ring and attacks Jax. Rodriguez goes for a big boot, but Jax sidesteps it, causing Rodriguez to hit Baszler with it.
Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley’s music hits, and she comes out to a big reaction. We haven’t seen Ripley in weeks as well. Ripley attacks Jax until the other two women get involved. WWE officials and security run into the ring to break it up. Ripley viciously kicks two male security guards down before hitting a third with a vicious Riptide. The crowd loudly chants, “Mami.”
Ripley says, “Mami is back on Monday Night Raw!” Ripley says she is not going anywhere because she needs to talk with the Judgment Day right now. She calls them out.
Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champion and “Señor Money in the Bank” Damian Priest comes to the ring alongside “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio, who no longer has the NXT North American Championship after losing it this past Saturday at NXT No Mercy. Mysterio looks upset.
We come back from the break to see the Women’s World Champion putting over Damian Priest and “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio. Now that she’s gotten that off her chest, she has some Judgment Day business to attend to. There is no leader in the Judgment Day, but they each have their own responsibilities to handle. Someone has to come up with a game plan so things don’t go down on the Judgment Day. Mami gets taken out for two weeks by Nia Jax, and things start falling apart for the Judgment Day. Mami is the one who makes the plans. At the end of the day, with her being out, she left that responsibility with somebody, and they disappointed her. She left that responsibility with Damian Priest. Priest couldn’t handle the job. After the brawl last week, Finn Bálor is out injured. Priest isn’t even cleared to compete tonight against Jey Uso. What else happens? Dom loses his NXT North American Championship to Trick Williams at No Mercy because Priest wasn’t there to help him like she told him to. Now we have the Cody and Jey situation. They don’t fear them because there’s tension in the group. They’re not a threat to them. They’re going to try to take their championships away from them. What will Priest do? He won’t do anything about it. Priest does not look happy.
Priest finally says, “With all due respect, Rhea, you’re not saying anything I don’t already know.” Yes, Cody and Jey are coming for the titles, but when push comes to shove, he will push harder. With that being said, screw Cody Rhodes, screw “Main Event” Jey Uso, and screw the talks of the Judgment Day falling apart. The way he sees it, he has his titles and contract. He’s not trying to point fingers and start something, “But Mami, where’s Dom-Dom’s title?”
Ripley turns and coldly looks at Mysterio, who has his head down. The crowd cheers and chants, “Where’s your title?” She says she is his Mami, which makes him her Papi. Tomorrow night, he has a rematch against Trick Williams for the title. If he doesn’t come home to her with that championship, then he can not bother to come home at all.
“Main Event” Jey Uso makes his way to the ring to a loud ovation. The crowd chants for him as he stands in the ring with three of the four members of the Judgment Day. Jey just stares at them and doesn’t say anything for a bit. Jey is out here to welcome back Rhea Ripley. Jey looks her in the eyes and says everyone missed her. It’s looking like there’s a new Tribal Chief on Monday Night, and she has bigger balls than Roman Reigns ever did.
Priest angrily leans against the ropes and says he’s tired of hearing Jey open his mouth. Priest approaches Jey, but Mysterio holds him back. Mysterio holds up the microphone to speak, but the crowd loudly boos him. Mysterio is viciously booed to the point that it’s hard to hear him. Mysterio says Priest isn’t medically cleared, but he is. Mysterio wants to talk care of Jey Uso. Jey chuckles. Ripley looks concerned, but Priest says Mysterio can handle it.
Jey and Mysterio are left in the ring. Mysterio goes for a right hand, but Jey sidesteps him and delivers a superkick. All of a sudden, JD McDonagh jumps into the ring and attacks Jey from behind. Jey fights him off, but Mysterio takes him down. McDonagh holds Jey up, and Mysterio starts hitting some right hands. “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes runs down for the save. Jey superkicks McDonagh out of the ring. Jey connects with a superkick on Mysterio, and Rhodes immediately follows up with Cross Rhodes. Priest just stood on the apron and didn’t help.
WWE Official Adam Pearce comes out to the stage. The Judgment Day has caused enough chaos tonight. They’ll handle the chaos this Saturday at WWE Fastlane when Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso take on Finn Bálor and Damian Priest. To understand the stakes, that match will be for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship. That is official! Priest looks stunned.
We see the Judgment Day in their locker room. Damian Priest is complaining about Adam Pearce’s decisions. JD McDonagh starts talking, but Priest tells him to be quiet. Rhea Ripley tells Priest to listen to him because he’s onto something. McDonagh suggests they try to divide Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso. They’ll divide and then conquer them. Priest says he’ll think about it.
Jackie Redmond is backstage with new NXT North American Champion Trick Williams. Williams introduces himself to Redmond and the rest of the world. He’s got gold on his ear, wrist, and waist. Tomorrow, he’ll defend the title against “Dirty” Dom. “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio walks up to him along with Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley and JD McDonagh. Ripley says Mysterio won’t be alone tomorrow night and will leave with his NXT North American Championship.
