We are back and we take a look back at last week's match between Drew McIntyre and Kurt Angle.

Kurt Angle's music plays but it is interrupted by Dolph's record scratch and Drew McIntyre.

Drew says when he first showed up on Raw, he said he would take over.  Do you believe him now?  First, he broke the Shield and he broke Kurt Angle.  Last week, Kurt went into their match an Olympic Gold Medalist, a Hall of Famer, a National Treasure, and an Icon.  After the match, he was nothing more than an embarrassment.  Drew says Kurt gave him everything, but when he looked in Kurt's eyes, he saw Kurt's will to win fading.  Kurt realized he was in the ring with a superior opponent.  Drew says that he saw Kurt crying.

He was crying.  Drew says he has never been more disgusted in his entire life.  He was more than happy to put Kurt down and beat him with his own ankle lock.  Drew says he has worked eighteen years for this moment.  He has sacrificed more than anyone.  He tells everyone to look into his eyes.  Drew says that Raw is his show and he will mold it in his image.  There is no more room for weakness or nostalgia acts.

Finn Balor interrupts and makes his way to the ring.

Drew says he has to hand it to Balor because he has a lot of guts to come out after what he did last week.

Balor says that what Drew was saying was too much.  You crossed the line last week.  You could have just beaten Kurt.

Drew asks Finn if he offended Finn or Kurt.  Drew tells Finn that dignity is not a right reserved for everybody.  He could have done so much worse to Kurt.  You are angry that he kicked your head off last week that he was going to help Finn against Bobby Lashley for European pride.  There are too many people who care about their feelings.  He tells Finn to turn around and go back up that aisle and cry to his Balor Club.

Finn says he has dealt with bullies his entire life.  Finn suggests that they have a match right here and right now.

Drew says he doesn't know what is more fraglie.  Your feelings or your body, but if you want a match, you've got a match.  It is not against him.  You are going to have a match against the man who is the true Best in the World . . . Dolph Ziggler.  If you can defeat somebody like Dolph, Drew says maybe he will lower himself to Finn's level.

We are back and Stephanie tells that she is impressed with Finn for standing up to Drew and for winning tonight, he is on the Survivor Series team.

Drew McIntyre comes to confront Finn and Stephanie tells him to stand down.  

Stephanie says that Drew cannot hurt his teammate on Sunday.  Stephanie knows that Ziggler cannot wait to get his hands on Shane for what he did in the World Cup.  Stephanie says that she wants Drew to do to her brother Shane and the rest of Smackdown what he did to Kurt Angle.  Work as a team on Sunday, but then you can tear each other apart.

We take a look at Becky Lynch's comments from Smackdown.

Ronda Rousey is in the interview area and she says that Becky is the man and she can dish it out.  Ronda says that he was not trying to insult Becky but she wanted to point out how ridiculous her claim of ripping her arm off.  Becky can dish it out, but she cannot take it.  You are so hyper-sensitive.  You are not just the man, you are the Millennial Man.  You have a bubble wrapped ego.  Ronda says that Becky needs to know that she is not Charlotte Flair and this is not Smackdown.  Everyone has watched her bleed for every inch of progress.  She did not pour her heart and soul into fight like a girl so the 'leader' of the Women's Revolution can say 'fight like a man'.

Nia Jax shows up with Tamina and says that they are here to wish her luck.

We are back and Ruby Riott says she would like to address her actions from last week.  We see what happened with Natalya's sunglasses.  Ruby says when she broke Jim Neidhart's sunglasses, she struck a nerve not only with Natalya but with the entire WWE Universe.  Ruby says she had a week to think about her actions and she completely understands why she has gotten the backlash.  Let's face it, Jim was a future Hall of Famer.  He was a badass powerhouse and he had the most infectious laugh.  The moment it took all of those happy memories and she turned them into nightmares.  Not only that, but humiliated Natalya in front of a world wide audience . . . and she enjoyed every second of it.

Ruby says she did not take it far enough.  They had to claw to get everything.  She wanted Natalya to feel emotion and bawl like a baby.  That is what you did.  In that moment, it all made sense and it clicked why Jim wore those sunglasses.  It was because he was ashamed to look at his own daughter.   He had to shade himself.

Match Number Four:  Ruby Riott (with Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan) versus Natalya

Natalya attacks Ruby from behind and takes Ruby down.  Natalya goes after Sarah and Liv but Ruby hits Natalya from behind.  Sarah and Liv attack Natalya while Ruby watches.  Sarah picks up Natalya and Ruby hits a Hart Attack.

The Revival goes after Heath Slater.  Slater is eliminated when he misses a jumping side kick and goes over the top rope to the floor so Rhyno is also eliminated.  Viktor with a forearm to Roode's back while Dawson connects with an uppercut on Kalisto.  Kalisto goes to the apron and he hits an enzuigiri on Wilder.  Kalisto sends Dorado to Dawson and Dawson and Dorado go to the apron.  Metalik knocks Dawson to the floor so Bo and Curtis throw out Wilder even though he was already eliminated.

We have a gesture off between the B Team and Lucha House Party so Konnor and Viktor attack both teams.  Kalisto is eliminated by Konnor.  Viktor sends Axel into Dallas to send him to the floor.  Konnor misses a back elbow into the corner and Roode with a kick and hits a neck breaker while Gable hits a moonsault.  Konnor puts Gable on the top rope and Gable with a triangle and Konnor is eliminated.
