“THIS IS MY BRUTALITY!”
Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley makes her way to the ring alongside NXT North American Champion “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio and JD McDonagh. Ripley welcomes everyone to Monday Night Raw, the show that the Judgment Day runs. They have proved it every week. It’s not just a saying. They’ve taken care of every single Superstar that has stood in their way. Last week, Damian Priest absolutely shattered Cody Rhodes’s ankle. That’s just the beginning. Tonight, her “Dirty” Dom, her Latino Heat, is going to put down Ricochet and remind him not to disrespect the Judgment Day. Then we have JD McDonagh, who is going to remind Seth “Freakin” Rollins exactly what it feels like to be an enemy of the Judgment Day.
As for Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre, they’ve got some decisions to make. Whichever one decides to make the right deal with the Judgment Day will determine who is walking out of Crown Jewel as a loser like the rest of the people or the World Heavyweight Champion. Speaking of Crown Jewel, she’ll be stepping into the ring with four of the baddest women in WWE. For her, that’s just another opportunity to prove to everyone who is the most dominant woman in the WWE. She’ll prove why Mami is always on top.
Sami Zayn’s music hits to interrupt the Eradicator of the Judgment Day. A loud “Sami” chant picks up. Zayn says he knows he wasn’t invited out here, but he’s sick of hearing her talk about the power of the Judgment Day and how they have all the championships. He’s tired of hearing about how the Judgment Day runs Monday Night Raw. Zayn is going to tell her something about him as if they don’t know from fighting him for the last six months. Zayn’s entire career has seen him fight people who think like the Judgment Day and think all that matters is power. They think they can do whatever they want in the name of power. If that’s the name of their game, that’s fine. They need to understand that his game is rebellion and resistance. It doesn’t matter if he has to fight them all by himself, as long as there is a breath of air in his body, he will fight! Zayn is FIRED UP. Another “Sami” chant picks up. Zayn will fight the Judgment Day and everything they stand for until the Judgment Day is no more.
Ripley cackles into the microphone. She says it’s hilarious that he can resist all he wants… it doesn’t matter. They don’t need the numbers when it comes to him. If management says it’s okay, he can go one-on-one against Damian Priest. Mysterio starts to talk, but the crowd viciously boos him. Mysterio says they should teach Zayn a lesson right now.
The three square off against Zayn, but Ricochet runs down to help out. Ripley backs Mysterio and McDonagh off. The Judgment Day leaves the ring without incident. McDonagh charges Ricochet, but Ricochet easily sends him over the top rope. Mysterio goes for a cheap shot, but he falls to his rear end when Ricochet turns on him.

Damian Priest says that never would have happened if the entire Judgment Day was out there. Ripley says they have other business to attend to. Priest says there is a lot going on this week. He’ll beat Cody Rhodes at WWE Crown Jewel. Then maybe he’ll cash in on Seth “Freakin” Rollins, Drew McIntyre, Roman Reigns, or even LA Knight. Still, they’re supposed to be equals, and he is not happy that she made a match for him against Sami Zayn. Ripley said she only did that because he is the Punishment of the Judgment Day. Priest says this night isn’t about him but rather the Judgment Day because they run this place.
