By Richard Trionfo on 2018-12-03 22:59:00

Baron Corbin is in the ring and he says in two short weeks, he will be Raw's General Manager.  What a journey it has been.  From winning Money in the Bank to being championship caliber to being constable to General Manager Elect.  Baron says if you are born better than everyone else, you can achieve anything.

Baron says he has had a few thorns in his side.  The Shield, Finn Balor, Kurt Angle, and Braun Strowman.  With the help of one person this journey has been pain free.  Tonight is Drew McIntyre Appreciation Night.

Baron brings out Drew McIntyre.

Baron thanks Drew for all of his hard work and unwavering support.  He says Drew is on the right side of history.  There needs to be something to commemorate all that Drew has done.

Baron gives Drew a Gold Medal of Excellence.

Drew says he did what no one else would do.  He is here to eradicate complacency.  People were in the back playing games on their phones.  They were happy to collect their paychecks.  Drew says they were responding to thinks said about them on social media.

Drew says he made Raw in his image.  Drew says it is something that has to happen every day, not just Monday.  Drew says that Finn Balor thinks he is the voice of these pathetic people.  Finn is nothing more than a boy in a man's world.  At TLC, he will hurt Finn and break his spirit.

Dolph Ziggler makes his way to the ring. 

Dolph asks Drew if he is having some memory problems.  He brought Drew to Raw and they were dominating.  Dolph says he was the brains and Drew was the muscle.  Dolph says his invitation got lost in the mail.  

Drew tells Dolph the truth is that he was never invited.  Drew says you don't quite meet the height requirement for one.  Drew says he is going to drop a truth bomb on Dolph.  He was always the brains and brawl.  Drew says he is the whole damn package.  The relationship was working, but it is not working any more.  Your role was to get him in a prominent position and you did it.  You succeeded for once in your life.  Drew thanks Dolph and tells him to leave.

Drew tells Dolph he can leave at any time.  Drew says his thanks isn't good enough for Dolph.  Drew wonders if Dolph is going to cry.  Drew says that he is the reason Dolph is relevant for the first time in ten years.

Dolph punches Drew and Dolph with a Zig Zag.

Baron tells Dolph that he is not going to ruin Drew McIntyre Appreciation Night.  You have a match right now.

Elias is in the ring.  Elias says he has been looking for Bobby Lashley.  He says that Bobby is harder to find in this arena than Carmello Anthony.  Bobby is hiding because he is afraid of the living truth.  He can see the fear that Bobby is carrying around.  At TLC, there will be no more hiding.  On that night, Bobby Lashley will know what WWE stands for.   Elias says he has a song for everyone.  

Lio Rush interrupts and introduces Bobby Lashley.  Lio says that while we would all love to hear Elias play a song, the spotlight belongs to Bobby Lashley.  You saw and felt the power and strength of Bobby Lashley last week.  At TLC you will feel it again.   Lio says that Bobby is like a Greek God.

Baron talks to Rhyno and Heath Slater.  Baron says he has been crunching some numbers and there is only enough room on Raw for one of them.  Baron says that one can quit to save the other's job.  Slater says he cannot quit.  He has kids.  Rhyno says he has worked hard for everything.  Baron says if they cannot figure it out, they can handle things in the ring.    The winner keeps his job and the loser is fired.
