We are in San Francisco, California and your announcers are Corey Graves, Byron Saxton, and Jimmy Smith.

Drew McIntyre makes his way to the ring with his sword.

Drew says it is appropriate that the Scottish Warrior is starting things off in the home of the Warriors.  Drew welcomes everyone to Raw.  Drew talks about the matches at Crown Jewel.  Drew says he will become the WWE Champion at Crown Jewel.  Drew says he has waited months for this match and it is his last chance at the title before going to Smackdown.

Big E's music interrupts Drew's story.  

Big E says he knows why Drew wants to be WWE Champion.  I have tasted the spoils of being WWE Champion.  Big E says Drew is a specimen.  You will never take this from me.  The train has already left the station and you have two options.  You can jump on board or your big sword wielding ass can stay on those train tracks and get run smooth over.  

Drew says Big E talks about the spoils of being the WWE Champion.  That adrenaline rush you feel as champion.  That feeling when you won the title?  That feeling when you walked to the ring tonight?  It feels damn good.  Drew says he is a two time WWE Champion.  You are on cloud nine and you should be.  I held the title for 300 days and I don't know what that feels like.  I am damn proud of everything I did as champion.  I loved every minute of it.  I am still chasing my moment and my moment will come at Crown Jewel.  Just like I defeated Lesnar, Orton, and Goldberg, there isn't a thing you can do.

The Usos interrupt (because they don't go here).

Jimmy says he is pumped for this match and he asks Jey who does he got.  Jey says he is with Big E.  Jimmy says his pick is Drew.

Drew asks what are they doing here.

They say that when they run with the Tribal Chief they do what they want.  Jey says the Bloodline was drafted to Smackdown but they are in your city.  Jimmy says they are sending out warning shots.  Jey says we all know that Roman Reigns is going to beat Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel.  They are trying to figure out who is going to be WWE Champion.  Is it Big E or is it Drew McIntyre?  Jey tells Drew to be careful because he is going to be in the crosshairs of the Tribal Chief on Friday nights and he might add the WWE Championship to the trophy case.  Jimmy says they already have plans for Big E's boys when they come to Smackdown.  If you beat Drew at Crown Jewel it is you and Roman at Survivor Series.  If that is the case, you have the same death wish the New Day is facing.

Big E tells the Usos they aren't going to bump their gums and get away with it.  Big E says he speaks on behalf of Drew and Drew says he does not speak for him.

The Usos challenge Drew and Big E later tonight and they accept.

The Usos with super kicks to Drew and Big E.

The New Day are in Gorilla and Kevin Patrick asks them what would happen if they were in the semifinals.  Kofi and Woods laugh and then they go to the ring because they hear their music.

Ricochet says the King of the Ring is an opportunity of a lifetime.  It will send his career into the stratosphere.  When he appears on Smackdown in two weeks, call him King Ricochet.

We are back and Ricochet with a forearm for a near fall.  Ricochet kicks Woods in the back and follows with a European uppercut and snap mare.  Ricochet with a drop kick for a near fall.  Woods blocks a suplex and Woods drops Ricochet on the top rope and Woods goes to the turnbuckles and hits a boot to the back.  Woods goes up top again and hits a leg drop for a near fall.  Woods gets Ricochet up with a deadlift into a gutbuster for a near fall.  Woods misses a boot and Ricochet with a round kick to the back of the head.  Ricochet rolls through and gets Woods on his shoudlers and Ricochet with a rolling Death Valley Driver and kick to the head.  Woods rolls to the floor.

We have a video package for Randy Orton and his match last week against Omos.

Randy Orton is in his locker room and Riddle shows up.  

Riddle says that he has news for Randy.  He says someone has challenged Omos to a match tonight.  

Randy asks Riddle what did he do.

Riddle says he made the challenge.  He had to follow in Randy's footsteps.  Riddle asks Randy how will they outsmart AJ and Omos.

Randy says there was no plan.  It was a one time thing last week.  You never should have challenged Omos.  You are on your own.  

Riddle says 'no plan' like they aren't getting 'matching snake skin speedos'?

Match Number Two;  Mansoor and Mustafa Ali versus Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin

Ali with a drop kick to Benjamin but Benjamin sends Ali into the air and to the mat.  Alexander tags in and Ali lands on his feet on a suplex attempt.  Mansoor tags in and he clotheslines Alexander and hits a reverse atomic drop and kick followed by a spinning heel kick.  Mansoor with a clothesline into the corner.  Ali with a double stomp while Mansoor hits a belly-to-back suplex.  Ali kicks Benjamin and then Mansoor with a suicide dive onto Benjamin.  Ali misses a 450 splash and rolls through.  Alexander with a Michinoku Driver for the three count.

We take a look at Shayna Baszler and her ability to get the women of the WWE to sound like they are trying out for Jurassic World.

Match Number Three:  Shayna Baszler versus Dana Brooke in a First Round Match in the Queen's Crown Tournament

Shayna sends Dana into the corner and then Shayna misses a knee in the corner.  Shayna with a punch but Dana sends Shayna into the turnbuckles.  Dana sends Shayna into the turnbuckles.  Dana goes for a handspring elbow but Shayna with a Kirifuda Clutch.  Dana counters with a rollup for a near fall.  Dana with a rollup for a near fall.  Shayna with an ankle lock.  Dana rolls Shayna through and Shayna hits the ropes.  Shayna with a kick and she gets the three count.

Winner:  Shayna Baszler (advances to face winner of Doudrop versus Natalya)

Charlotte Flair is in the back and she says who cares about Shayna Baszler.  Sasha, Bianca, and Becky can beat each other up at Crown Jewel.  They are all below her.  Bianca is fiery but she does not have the killer instinct.  Becky talks the talk but cannot walk the walk.  How many times has she beaten Sasha.  She says she hopes Sasha wins the Smackdown Women's Title so I can slap that stupid smirk off her face and becoming the dual champion.

Riddle makes his way to the ring as we go to commercial.
