Tonight’s WWE RAW opens up with a look back at last week when WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns and The Usos took on AJ Styles, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson in the main event.

– We go to the ring and out comes Chris Jericho for another edition of The Highlight Reel.<br />
Chris says his guest tonight was supposed to be Dean Ambrose, but Dean is not here because of him. He assaulted Dean last week and he suffered from vertigo and a bulging disc. Dean might not be in the WWE for a long time because of him. Chris says he has the next best thing here… Chris reveals the remains of “Mitch”. Chris says there are many similarities. Dean tried to be wacky when he tried to entertain you. Mitch also failed to comprehend the power of Chris Jericho. They are a shattered mess of dust and bones waiting to be put back together again. Chris says he seriously injures Dean and he is in a hospital. How do you react?

Chris shows the tweets about “Mitch” When Dean was screaming in pain in the hospital it was no laughing matter. Chris says he likes Mitch more. He has more worth to the WWE than Mitch. He can be put together and sold for $12 and be worth more than Dean Ambrose is to the WWE. Chris says he knows why you relate to Dean. It is because he is a loser like you. He is a slob and everyman, just like you. Chris says he is a legend. He is the Superstar of All Superstars. He is the Halley’s Comet of the WWE. Talent like him only comes around once every 76 years.

Jericho asks Colin if he knows who he is. Colin says he knows who Chris is. He is one of the greatest of all time. Chris does not know about the new era. It is not a cry for attention, it is a warning. Consider this a warning. He has arrived. Right now, you are standing in his way. You better get out of his way or he will run through you.

Chris tells Colin to run to the hospital to check on your little buddy. Chris says that Enzo is in the same ward as Dean. Colin says in the new era, we stand and fight. He says they can fight right now.

Chris asks Colin if he has forgotten that the is the best… Colin interrupts and he says that Chris is the best in the world at what he does, but Colin reminds Chris he is seven feet tall… and you can’t teach that. Chris says if you want to fight… he takes off his jacket and throws down the mic. Chris walks away.

Colin says that with Chris running away, there is only one word to describe him and he is going to spell it out for him. Chris runs back to the ring and Colin with a boot to knock Jericho off the apron.
