Baron Corbin stops by and he is not in a good mood.

Baron puts his gum on the table and he says he was supposed to wrestle Kalisto but that coward begged and pleaded to stay home.  Kalisto is not medically cleared.  Baron says he is about making money.  Kalisto cost him money.  He tells Kalisto he hopes he is comfortable huddled up with your wife because he will put Kalisto there permanently.

Baron refuses to answer Renee's question and he leaves.

It is time to look at the United States Title Match between Rusev and Roman Reigns.  We have a video package.

Renee asks about the panelists past wedding issues on Raw.  Lita says there is not a good history with weddings.  Jerry says he had a few weddings.  He says the first wedding was by a judge and it should have been a jury.  Booker says you don't put your hands on another man's woman.  Booker says he would find that man and break him down and make him pay for what he did.  Neither man will be in a good mood so it will be good for all of us.  Lawler says Rusev is always miserable.

Renee asks for predictions.  Lita picks Roman.  Lawler says Lita is right, but he can only see Lana in the cake.  Booker picks Rusev.  Jerry is sold on cake so he switches his pick to Rusev.

We move to the Women's title match.

We have a video package.

We are in the Social Media Lounge with Tom "Phil" Phillips and Sasha Banks.

Sasha is asked what is the best thing about being champion.  She says it proves she is the best.

She is asked if Charlotte has anything up her sleeve.  She says Charlotte is the dirtiest player in the game and Charlotte stinks.  She knows Charlotte will have something planned.

Sasha is asked if she is scared.  She is not afraid.  She says she was born to do this.

Renee asks Lita about the work done by Charlotte and Sasha on Raw.  Lita mentions last year where these two are as competitors.  She will be coming hard and it will be a huge battle either way.  Jerry is asked about how will Charlotte do without Dana.  Jerry says the title win got to Sasha's head.  It was all about her.  When you have that attitude, you will lose.  Lita points out that Charlotte is humble.

Renee asks for predictions.  Booker chooses Charlotte.  Jerry picks Charlotte too.  Lita picks Sasha.

Andrea D'Marco is with Cesaro.  She asks him about being undervalued.  Cesaro says they both know their value and they have a chip on their shoulders so this best of seven is important.  A win in the first match gives you an advantage.  Cesaro says this is the way to settle this.  Less talk and more wrestling.

We go back to ringside and your announcers are Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves.

Renee asks what will it mean if Seth loses.  Lawler says it would be devastating.  He says Finn takes so long to put on that makeup.  He does it to intimidate his opponent and strike fear into his heart.  It might have worked in NXT with the rookies.  Tonight, he is in the ring with Seth Rollins.  Seth will not be intimidated by makeup or a scary face.  

Renee asks Lita if there are some surprises we are not sure about.  Lita says there might be.  Lita says we get our inspiration from other things and it will allow you to do something more.  He is drawing deep from the depths and show what has never been seen before.
