We are in St. Paul, Minnesota and your announcers are Michael Cole, Renee Young, and Jerry Lawler.

Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

We go to a video package.  He says he does not know what is going on and who is attacking him.  He says it is one thing to happen in the ring, but this is happening in the back.  It is another thing to try to hit him with a car.  It has affected his life and livelihood and his ability to support his family.  Roman says he has seen the photos and he has some questions.  We see Roman confronting Buddy Murphy and then the way that Roman plays bad cop with Buddy.  

We take a look at Daniel Bryan's comments about how Buddy confessed to Rowan attacking Roman.  Then we see Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan do the same to Buddy.  We see Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan confront Roman at the end of Smackdown and the revelation that they have figured out who did it.

Dolph Ziggler says he wants to tell Roman face to face he is not a keyboard warrior and confront Roman face to face to discuss everything that has happened.  Dolph says he doesn't know why Roman gets all of the attention.  You almost got hit by a lighting rig and a car.  Do you know what it is like to be speared by Goldberg?  Dolph reminds us he was speared three times.  It is bad enough to get speared by Goldberg and he didn't see it coming.  Dolph says he thought he had to wait 6 months between spears.  Then Shawn Michaels super kicks him.  Last week, he was so out of it that Maryse's husband beat him with Ric Flair's hold.

Dolph says everyone knows that it should be . . .

We are back and Michael and Renee talk about Sasha Banks.  We have a video package showing Sasha's return to Raw last week.

Becky Lynch is in the back and she says Sasha Banks beat her stupid last week with a chair.  Becky says people ask her why is she calling out the locker room.  Becky says she is looking forward to Sasha's answers to Jerry Lawler.  Becky says she wants to fight everyone at their best.  Right now, Sasha is at her best.  Four months ago, Sasha ran away crying from the WWE, but last week, she was hotter than ever?  What did Sasha do on her four month vacation that made her so hot? 

Becky says Sasha did absolutely nothing.  Becky says it only took a few media appearance to get Sasha on the top of the mountain.  Becky says you can swing your chair and wear your dollar store glasses, but she did more to get Sasha into the WWE than Sasha did.  The great don't need to be goaded into greatness, they seek it.  This is a cat and mouse game and she is going to give Sasha something to go home and cry about.

Jerry Lawler is in the ring and he welcomes everyone to The King's Court.  Jerry mentions the King of the Ring.  He says it is more than a moniker.  It is a launching pad for some.  Bret Hart, Steve Austin, and Brock Lesnar were all King of the Ring.  Sixteen of the top superstars are going to battle in the ring to be called the King of the Ring.  Jerry says it will come down to Cedric Alexander and Ricochet on the Raw side.  On the Smackdown side . . . 

The lights go down and Jerry knows what is coming.  Jerry leaves the ring and he goes up the ramp, but the Fiend is on the ramp, behind Jerry Lawler.  The Fiend gives Lawler the mandible claw.

We go to commercial.

We are back with a look at what The Fiend did to Jerry Lawler.
