In the Arena:
Elias is in the ring. He says there will be no other introduction tonight. You could have been walking out with the new tag team champions but it is Jaxson Ryker’s fault. If he had done what he said, they would be champions. Jaxson became completely unhinged. For his career and sanity, he had to get away.
Elias says he had no choice. The first time he met Jaxson, he didn’t see this unbridled potential. He looked into Ryker’s cold eyes and he saw the ghosts of war. He saw a man who would go into battle, but not someone who would go to battle for me. I walked out on Ryker, but that does not mean there is a universal truth and that is WWE stands for Walk With Elias.
Jaxson Ryker (now sporting short hair and black beard) attacks Elias from behind with his new ‘is that Miro’ look. Ryker throws the guitar up the ramp and then he continues the attack until referees can pull Ryker off.

— We take a look back at last week’s number one contender match between Kofi Kingston and Drew McIntyre.
In the Arena:
Drew McIntyre makes his way to the ring because it is time for the contract signing. But first… We go to commercial.
We are back and Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville are in the ring with Drew McIntyre, who is already seated at the Non Roman Reigns related Table.
Sonya introduces Bobby Lashley and he does not come out to the ring.
Drew says we are not going to wait for Lashley. Drew says that Lashley will walk out with his external charisma, the suit, MVP, and the Lashley Train.
Then he will talk about how many opportunities he has had. Drew says there was a Scottish King named Robert the Bruce. Scotland was under control and he had some defeats in his first year. He retreated into a cave and he saw a spider that tried to spin a web. Finally, that web stuck and the spider made a home for himself. Robert figured he would give it another chance. He won Scotland it’s freedom. He said If at first you don’t succeed… Beat Lashley for the title at Hell in a Cell.

Drew says he accepts Drew says he will never fight Lashley again for the WWE Championship if he loses. Drew says he wants a match with no outside interference to cause the finish. He wants where no one else can lose on his behalf. He wants this match inside Hell in a Cell.
Porter says that Lashley accepts your terms.
They sign the contract (that does not have the changes that were just agreed to).
Lashley says it is admirable that Drew has gone back to his Scottish Roots. The saying ends If at first you don’t succeed, you lose again to Bobby Lashley and you tuck your tail under your kilt and you walk away.
Drew says he has some last words and advice for Lashley. Drew says after Hell in a Cell you are never the same and that is the case. I fell 15 feet off the cell through a table. I still feel it today. I wam willing to go through that again and inflict punishment on you like you have never felt before. I will use the cell and whatever is beneath the ring. You can pray and beg for mercy but it won’t help. I will win back my championship. See you in hell.
Lashley says he will beat Drew there. As Lashley prepares to leave with his girl, Drew gets his sword and he splits the table in half.
Sarah Schreiber is in the back with Nikki Cross. Sarah asks Nikki what has gotten into her after her last two victories (outlasting her opponent for 2 minutes). Nikki says it has always been inside her. It is her tenacity and spirit that makes her a winner. The only thing she will regret is not taking chances. Her only choice is to try. Sarah asks Nikki if she has chosen a partner. Nikki says it is someone she has admired. It is someone who looks like a superhero. Out comes Asuka with her “nobody is ready for Asuka!”.

Draw (Double Count out)
The New Day are in the hallway and MVP wants to talk to Kofi Kingston for a moment. Kofi asks Porter if Lashley let him off the leash. Porter says he was impressed with Kofi’s performance the last two weeks, but he is not surprised he came up short. Porter says he represents Bobby Lashley, but he was a Kofi fan. He watched Kofi win the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania. He had tears in his eyes because they go back to Deep South. Seeing you with your sons in the ring triggered me to come back. WWE had a champion that he could relate to and be proud of.
KofiMania was everything and it went away. Do you know why that happened? You are not like Bobby Lashley. I thought I saw a glimpse of the Kofi Kingston who could be champion, then you lost to Drew and you shook his hands. You were comfortable being a loser. There are no friends. This is show business. He says Kofi wants to be in the back shucking and grinning, and Kofi yells at Porter.
Kofi says his family and friends give him the motivation. He says he does this because there is someone at home who wants to be like Kofi. What does Lashley do this for? Porter says Lashley does this for the title and everything that comes with it.
We go to commercial.
We are back with another “Eva-Lution” vignette. Eva says that the story you have heard is only the beginning. it is not easy running to the peak of success. I had to put in a lot of dedication to get where I am. Now it is time to practice what I preach. The ability to inspire others comes from showing up to be seen. I will show the WWE Universe a side of me they have never seen. Eva-Lution is coming to Raw… Next week!
Mansoor is in the back and Mustafa Ali mentions that he has a match against Drew Gulak but Ali asks if he is ready. Mansoor says he is ready. Ali says you are ready for a fair and square match against Drew, but will you be ready when he pokes your eyes and pulls your tights? What will you do when you realize he will cut corners to win? Not everyone will play by the rules like you.
