Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring.  

Kurt welcomes everyone to Raw and he says Raw has been on a roll lately.  He says Ronda Rousey is in the building.  She will have her first title match at Money in the Bank against Nia Jax.  Tonight, he will be presiding over the contract signing.  There will be a Fatal Four Way Qualifying Match for the Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match . . . 

Stephanie McMahon's music interrupts and she makes her way to the ring.

Stephanie says they have talked many times and after what happened at Wrestlemania, it is all water under the bridge.  You are forgiven.  Stephanie says she is a leader and a businessperson who will do what is best for business.  Stephanie says she has forgiven everything.  With her guidance, Kurt can do so much . . . well a little bit better.  She says that Kurt has done a phenomenal job since Wrestlemania.  She says Kurt needs to listen to her so she will be the one presiding over the contract signing.  

Kurt says he could use more room for guidance.

Stephanie says that Kurt has let his emotions get in the way with Roman Reigns.  You have given him too much lattitude.

Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

Roman says if you are going to say something about him, say it to him.  

Stephanie says she does not understand Roman's new attitude with the aggression in his voice.  You were the Big Dog and the leader.  If you are going to let you Samoan temper get in the way, you might want to look for another line of work.

Roman tells Stephanie that she should watch her tone because he can go to the back and use his Samoan temper to destroy her favorite superstars.

Stephanie says she does not play favorites.  She does what is best for business.  She is a leader.  She manages multiple revenue streams.  She does not play favorites.  That is beneath her.

Roman mentions Stephanie's favorite revenue stream . . . Brock Lesnar.

Stephanie says she has taken Roman's concerns to her father and they have heard every word.

Roman tells her to cut the corporate crap and look into his eyes and speak the truth.  You don't want him near the Universal Title or Money in the Bank Match.

Stephanie reminds Roman that he lost his qualifying match.  If you want to take it up with someone, take it up with Jinder Mahal.

Roman says that he already did.

Kevin Owens makes his way to the stage. 

Kevin says he feels in debt to Roman because Jinder was not able to compete in his match last week and Kevin grabbed that chance for the Money in the Bank Match.  Kevin says winning Money in the Bank is what is best for business.  Kevin says he will tell Roman how people feel about him.  Kevin says he is willing to tell everyone how he feels about Roman Reigns.  Kevin says he likes Roman.  He tells the people to stop with the stupid chants and chant 'Thank You Roman'.  

Kevin says as much as he likes Roman, he disagrees with Roman when he said that Stephanie plays favorites.  Kevin says he had issues with her father and brother, but she still made Kevin the cornerstone of Raw.  It is because she knows talent when she sees it.

Stephanie tells Kevin not to touch her.  Stephanie says that he will let Roman work off some of that temper and she is going to let him face Kevin Owens.
