WWE RAW Opener:

Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho are in the ring. Kevin welcomes everyone to the Kevin O... the Chris and Kevin Show. Kevin points out he mentioned Chris first. He says there is nothing he will not do to make sure the Universal title is with him. He does not care if that means taking a Codebreaker from his best friend. Chris asks for the monkeys to show the photos and Kevin yells at them for taking too long.

Kevin tells Chris he has to admit that when you showed up in the ring, he had no idea what Chris was going to do. Chris' plan was perfect and he even had him fooled. Kevin says he never doubted Chris and that Codebreaker did not hurt as much as the idea that Chris was not his friend. The Universal Title is where it belongs.

Chris says that Codebreaker hurt him more than it hurt Kevin. He had to make everyone believe. Chris wants Kevin to believe now that their friendship is intact, he is going to give Kevin The Hug of Jericho. Now that Team Kevin and Chris are back together, they are going to hand out payback and retribution like Santa gives out coal.

Kevin asks if he means Michael Cole and that would be terrible. Chris asks Kevin what else does Santa do besides hand out gifts and make lists? Kevin says he looks stupid. Chris calls Santa a stupid idiot and he tells Santa if you are going to steal his ideas... YOU GO ON THE LIST!

Mick Foley's music plays and he makes his way to the ring and he tells Chris you don't talk that way about Santa. Mick says that Chris has been really naughty. He wants to follow up on payback and retribution and Mick wonders why they did not show what happened after the match.

We see photos while Kevin says it was irrelevant.

Kevin says that power bomb could have ended his career. Mick says that is what payback is about. Kevin points out he is a national treasure. Chris comments on Mick's outfit and Mick says he will show you what the worst thing you have ever seen is and Mick takes off his jacket.

Mick says the only reason Seth and Roman are not here in the ring, they will be getting some revenge in a tag match later tonight in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (and then he is corrected about Raw being in Columbus).

Chris says Pittsburgh is better than Columbus. Kevin says no matter what happened last night, they made sure that Kevin would win. They will figure something out tonight. Mick says Jericho always finds a way to interfere. That stops at the Royal Rumble. That is where the retribution begins. Mick says Santa has brought a present from the North Pole. We see the 'shark cage' lowered to the ring.

Kevin says you cannot do that to Chris. Mick says Roman Reigns will face Kevin Owens at the Royal Rumble and Chris Jericho will be suspended above the ring in the cage and you will never interfere agayne. Chris and Kevin comment on Mick criticizing the way that Chris says Agayne. Chris and Kevin say that Mick cannot make him go in there.

Mick says that if Chris does not go into the cage, he will never set foot in a WWE ring agayne. Chris says he is afraid of heights. Kevin says it is not safe. Chris talks about the material and Kevin says it is terrible because it is made in Ohio. Chris says the same thing.

Mick tells Chris to check out the floor of the cage and Mick closes the cage and then Mick cannot find the key. Mick says he forgot the key. He says that Chris is safe because the cage does not go up until he gives 'this signal' at the Royal Rumble. The cell rises above the ring and Chris wants the door opened. We go to commercial.

- We are back with a look at what happened with Chris Jericho in the cage.

- We see Chris getting oxygen and Kevin stops by while Chris breathes heavily. Kevin tells Chris to get his head in the game. Chris says it was high and Kevin wants the oxygen back.

Big Cass vs. Rusev

Enzo Amore and Big Cass make their way to the ring and they do their usual introduction. Cass tells Rusev last night he took the coward's way out. You may have notched a victory but it does not change the fact that there is one word to describe you...

Rusev's music interrupts the spelling bee and the match is on.

Cass punches Rusev after locking up and with more punches and he chokes Rusev in the ropes. Rusev tries to get out of the ring but Colin keeps Rusev in and punches and kicks Rusev. Cass does not stop with the punches and the referee disqualifies Rusev.

In the Arena:

We are back and Sasha Banks makes her way to the ring and she has her knee bandaged and she has a crutch to help her get to the ring.

We see photos from the Iron Man Match featuring Sasha Banks and Charlotte.

Sasha says last night she literally gave her blood, sweat, and tears. She says tapping twice nearly broke her leg and it broke her heart. She talks about the history that she has made with Charlote. Last night, she walked out of Roadblock without her Women's Championship. As much as it hurts her and it kills her to say, the better woman won. Sasha says she was taught to win or lose with respect and she wants Charlotte to come out so she can congratulate Charlotte.

Nia Jax' music plays and she makes her way to the ring.

Nia walks around Sasha and she says she doesn't know if Charlotte is here, but she does not care. You can call yourself the boss and be the boss of the sheep in the crowd. You will never be the boss of her. You are weak and you are wounded. You are a little girl. Nia kicks the crutch away and Sasha falls to the mat. Nia picks up Sasha and she biels Sasha towards the ropes and the injured leg hits the ropes. Nia stands over Sasha with the crutch and then she leaves the ring.

Sheamus wants them in green.

A referee comes into the room to get Mick because there is an emergency. We see Braun Strowman attacking random people asking for him. Mick wants to know what is Braun doing. Braun says Sami survived ten minutes because he let him. He wants Sami now. Mick says Sami is 100 miles away. He tells Braun to take the night off. Braun says it will be 'or else'

He says that someone would out New Day the New Day and they are happy it was you. Sheamus thanks Kofi but Xavier tells Sheamus 'shame'. Xavier says when they were saying congratulations, they were talking about Cesaro. Big E says he has cat like reflexes.

Cesaro says it is good to be strong when you are teaming with this guy. Sheamus wants to know what Cesaro is talking about. Cesaro mentions Sheamus' ego.

Sheamus says he does not care what anyone thinks about him. He says they are champions because of him so chew on that. He says the New Day's reign of terror is over. The 483 days of disgracing the tag titles is over. Cesaro says they did not disgrace them. Sheamus says if they can be champions for 483 days, he can hold on to the titles for 20 years.

Xavier says for over 483 days there was music, singing, and dancing. There were more than 20 New Day shirts made.. There was cereal, there was the Old Day... maybe they should forget about that. They used the Power of Positivity. Big E says you will never match their reign because...

Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows interrupt. Karl says he sees a bunch of... Luke says nerds... in the ring. It is sadder that the New Day think they are the greatest tag team champions or that Sheamus and Cesaro think they won the titles on their own. Luke says if it wasn't for them beating down the Nerd Day, Sheamus and Cesaro would not be the tag team champions.
