By Richard Trionfo on 2018-09-17 23:01:00

WWE Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey makes her way to the ring.

Ronda says she wants to congratulate Alexa Bliss.  Last night was Alexa's best performance and she did not expect her to be able to fight at that level and push her so close to her limits.  She also has to thank Alexa because Alexa showed that she is a better champion.  She says she wants to be just like Bret Hart, Steve Austin, and Ric Flair.

Ronda makes an open challenge for her title.

Natalya's music plays but she does not make her way to the ring.

We see Natalya being dragged to the stage by the Riott Squad.

Ruby Riott tells Ronda to look at what she made them do.  What they did to Nattie is your fault.  They are here to shut this little operation down.  They don't dislike Ronda, but they don't like her either.  Ruby says she will be the one to accept the open challenge.

Elias is in the ring and he strums his guitar.  Elias who wants to Walk with Elias.  Elias says he knows how bad this show can be before Elias shows up.  He says if he had his way it would be three hours of Elias.  He says he always gets interrupted.  Whether it is Trish Stratus or Mick Foley, it is because of jealousy.  Everything Elias does is special.  They all find out the truth.  Tonight, he has to take care of Bobby Lashley.  He looks great and he has all of the resources but he is a disappointment.  He never wins when he has to.  Bobby reminds him of the Dallas Cowboys.

Elias says he sees all of the jerseys and you are proud to advertise failure.  Elias says what won't be a failure and what won't disappoint tonight will be his song.
