We come back to the panel for the second hour, which is Coach, Sam, David Otunga, and Shawn Michaels.  Shawn talks about getting inducted for the second time last night, and then they run down the card for tonight, and then turn their attention to Triple H and Batista.  Shawn talks about taking someone from an apprentice to a peer, and Batista has always felt held down by Triple H.  They talk about this being far from the first time Triple H has been accused of holding people down, and Otunga says Triple H will do anything it takes to keep his career.

We go to ringside with Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Renee Young, then we head back to the ring for our next match...

Raw Tag Team Title Match: The Revival vs Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins

Will the Edgeheads have their moment?  Hawkins and Dawson start us off, and Dawson stalls a bit to frustrate Hawkins, then takes him to the mat with a headlock.  Hawkins realizes he isn't having much luck, and tags out to Zack.  Dawson works Zack down with hard shots, then "the heavy handed Dash Wilder" (as Corey puts it) comes in and eats a missile dropkick from Zack.  Zack charges, but Dash ducks and Zack goes sailing to the floor.  Cole says Booker T will become a three-time Hall of Famer when he goes in next year as GI Bro, as Zack continues to take a beating.  Zack finally makes the hot tag, and Hawkins cleans house on both opponents.  Hawkins with a backslide on Dawson for 2, a Pelle kick to Wilder, and a victory roll on Dawson for 2.  Double clothesline, and both Dawson and Hawkins are down.  Ryder tags in and suplexes Wilder over the top, and Wilder holds on as both men go to the floor.  Hawkins tosses Ryder back in and tags himself back in to cover Dawson for 2.  Hawkins spears Wilder on the floor, but Dawson gives him a brainbuster on the floor, and all four men are down as the referee counts.  Back into the ring where Dawson goes to grab Hawkins, and Hawkins small packages him for the win.

Winners and NEW Raw Tag Team Champions: Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins

Great psychology in this one, and great moment for Ryder and Hawkins.

We go to Charly Caruso and Pat McAfee, who are with a guy from American Ninja Warrior, then we bounce back to the panel for a quick moment, then we head back to the ring...

Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

The SNL guys, Braun Strowman, and the Hardys get entrances, everyone else comes out for the mass entrance.  Strowman tears his shirt off to show off what great shape he's gotten into.  The SNL guys climb under the bottom rope and hide under the ring as people start getting tossed right at the beginning.  EC3, Tyler Breeze, Shelton Benjamin, Lince Dorado, Bo Dallas, Curtis Axel, all go out within the first minute, then Luke Harper and Strowman face off but get swarmed before they ever touch.  Titus plows someone out, then charges and gets backdropped over the top rope.  No Way Jose goes out, then Gallows rams Strowman shoulder first into the post, and he goes through the ropes to the floor.  Anderson goes out, the Hardys toss Rhyno, then Bobby Roode and Gran Metalik follow, Andrade monkey flips Kalisto onto the top rope and to the floor, Chad Gable mercilessly German suplexes Andrade, who turns a final suplex attempt into a body scissors that pulls Gable to the floor.  Dozovic double caterpillars the Ascension, then tosses them both.  Strowman is back in, takes Gallows out, then both of Heavy Machinery, Braun tosses Jinder Mahal, then kicks Harper and Ali out while Harper has Ali up for a suplex to the floor, and Ali bashes his face into the broadcast table as he lands.  OUCH.  Andrade gets a flying headscissors that eliminates Apollo Crews and himself, then the Hardys go to the apron and start pulling Braun over the top.  The SNL guys run in and come from behind to help, but Braun kicks them both off, eliminates the Hardys, then turns around to face the SNL guys.  One of them grabs a mic and tries to talk Braun down, and brings his therapist into the ring to try and talk things out.  Braun skeeballs that guy across the ring and then chokeslams him, tosses him at the SNL guy, and the other guyt tries to eliminate himself, but Braun stops him long enough to punch him in the face and then lets him fall.  Braun tries a big boot, the other guy ducks out of the way, and feverishly tries to eliminate Braun.  Braun shoves him off, then picks him up for a powerslam, but instead LAUNCHES him face first over the top rope and onto his friends to get the win.

Winner: Braun Strowman

SNL stuff was what you'd expect, other than that it was just a lot of eliminations.

We go back to the panel where they talk over the match we just saw, especially how stupid Andrade was for eliminating himself, then turn their attention to the main event.  We see a video package hyping the women's match, the panel gives final thoughts, and that's a wrap for the Kickoff!
