Tonight's WWE RAW opens up with a graphic in memory of WWE Legend Kamala, who passed away at the age of 70 on Sunday. We cut to the standard RAW intro video.

- We go right to the ring and Samoa Joe is with a microphone. He hypes up this SummerSlam contract signing between Dominik Mysterio and Seth Rollins. Joe says this contract signing is a bit different because one of the competitors will be signing a contract that also makes him a WWE Superstar. Joe goes on and introduces Rollins first. Out he comes with Murphy. Byron says Joe must avoid a physical confrontation with Rollins tonight if he wants to keep his job, because Joe is not medically cleared to compete.

Dominik Mysterio is out next and he's carrying a kendo stick. Rollins isn't happy with this. Joe takes the stick and jokes that this will be safer with him. Joe and Rollins have words now. Rollins disagrees with Joe and rants about how he's given Dominik, Rey Mysterio and Aleister Black options but they all made the wrong choice, and that may go for Joe if he's not careful. Rollins goes on about how he's made sacrifices for the greater good. He wonders when this will finally be enough. Dominik says it's never going to be enough. Dominik says Rollins makes excuses for the ungodly things he does. He says Rey and Aleister aren't the same. Rollins uses the greater good as an excuse but the greater good he fights for is for himself, Dominik says. Rollins says Dominik is so ungrateful.

Rollins says Dominik is here about to live his dream as a WWE Superstar and doesn't even realize it's all because of Rollins. Rollins says he should be thanked. Dominik says Rollins is right - this was his dream but now his dream is to kick Rollins's ass at SummerSlam. Rollins laughs but Dominik stares him down. Rollins says we all know Dominik wouldn't last seconds in a standard wrestling match with him. Rollins says he's the best wrestler of his generation, so he's going to do Dominik a favor. Since Dominik seems handy with the kendo stick, Dominik can bring that or any other tool in the toolbox to SummerSlam.
