We get a recap of Emma’s return last week, responding to Ronda Rousey’s open challenge.

Emma is interviewed backstage.

She says she wasn’t sure if she would ever come back and her heart was racing, but she had something to prove to herself.

Xia Li rolls with the slow snap and says that she saw Emma lose and the only thing she proved is that she is weak. Emma says number one was Ronda Rousey, and number two is a right forearm in Li’s face!

And so we’re going to take a break.

Back from the commercial, we get a video of Logan Paul getting his brother Jake to agree to be in his corner tomorrow at Crown Jewel.

We get a video package for Paul/Reigns.

He comes in and we’re going to take a break.

Back from the commercial, we get another Viking Raiders thumbnail, with our shadowy priestess who is definitely not Sarah Logan painting runes on her forehead.

LA Knight cuts a promo as he enters about how awesome he is and how all the incels in the crowd should jump on the gravy train and Ricochet him blind with a dip!

Jey says it’s not a Bloodline thing, it’s a Uso thing, and they were champions before him and they will be long after. He walks away and Jimmy follows him, telling Sami he has a point, leaving Zayn to yell at them as we go to break.

Back from the pub, Bray Wyatt cuts a promo backstage.

He says it’s hard for him when people play with him, interrupt him when he tries to do something incredibly hard, and a team member comes and yells at him, saying they’re live . Wyatt says he knows he’s just trying to do his job, but he’s trying to do his job, and asks if he knows the feeling of being cut off in traffic and fantasizing about what you would do with thirty seconds alone with this other driver.

He can’t stand the way he thinks about things and he hates himself because he just wants to smash the guy’s head against the cement wall and he’s a hair’s breadth away from doing that, so for both he wants that he reaches to the bottom of his soul and look him in the eye and apologize.

He stutters an apology and Bray says he knows and has to go.

The Usos enter and take the microphone.

They say they’re on their way to the record for longest-serving tag team champions of all time, and it starts with the Brawling Brutes, who are both theirs.

Step into the new day.

They tell the Usos to settle their kettle and if by any chance they retain the titles, they need them to understand one thing: as soon as they are back on American soil, they will have the oldest champions ready to tear them up. member by member to protect their file.

In other words, they followed.

A fight breaks out, the Brutes fall, Solo Sikoa and Sami Zayn even the odds, Pete Dunne smashes the Shillelagh but Solo gets a head start and presents him with Spinning Solo!

Rey Mysterio is interviewed backstage.

He says he loves competing in WWE, it’s who he is, and he’s given his whole life to this business, but now he’s haunted by the memories and misses his son. He’s not giving up, and he’s going to show everyone that you have to keep fighting. GUNTHER is a hell of an opponent and he can still feel the pain in his chest, but he will turn his pain into rage and use it as fuel to become the new Intercontinental Champion.

His five poor independent wrestlers make their entrance and Braun blinds and exposes them all before battling for MVP! He breaks Porter’s cane over his knee and throws him into the apron and then into the barricade! He takes Montel to the ring… RUNNING POWERSLAM!

A second powerslam and a third!

Imperium are interviewed backstage.

GUNTHER says he will step into the ring and defend his title with dignity, respect and honor. Rey Mysterio has no honor, which is why his son turned his back on him, and one thing will never change: the fact that he is the Intercontinental Champion.
