Stephanie McMahon makes her way to the ring.

Stephanie welcomes everyone to the A show, the brand that decimated Smackdown last night, Monday Night Raw.  She says that her brother knew that Smackdown didn't have a chance and it was written all over his face.  Putting Raw Under Siege, he thought he had the advantage.  Shane tried to strike first, but Stephanie says that she learned to win.  Stephanie says that Kurt Angle keeps his job.

Stephanie brings out the man who was responsible for Raw's victory, her husband, Triple H.

Before Hunter can speak, Kurt Angle's music plays and he makes his way to the ring, and he is not as happy as Triple H or Stephanie.

Kurt gets in Hunter's face in the ring and he says this is not Kurt Angle the General Manager talking to you, this is the Olympic Gold Medalist and Hall of Famer speaking,  If you attack me from behind again, you can take this job and shove it because he is coming after you.

Braun Strowman's music plays and he comes to the ring.

Braun gets in Hunter's face and they go beard to beard.
