S3 Episode 19 Raw & Smackdown Cards
Episode #19 (August 21, 2020):
Show Opener: Seth Rollins and The Disciples open Raw. Rollins walks out with the bloody steel chair he used on Chrisitan last week. Rollins grabs the mic and says that last week was only a sliver of what will happen to you Edge. I took out your best friend with ease. Think about that. Think about how easy it was to break his neck, while you stood there and watched. Actually, come to think of it, you chose to break your friend's neck because you refused to stand down. And it some ways Edge. that's respectable. But to me, that's foolish. You decided that a win was more important to you than your friend's life and Chrisitan paid the price. And now because of your greed, you have no advantage. You have no friends. You have no one that is on your side anymore Edge. You are all alone.
Match #1: The Disciples vs. Lucha House Party - RAW Tag Team Championship Match
RESULTS: THE DISCIPLES WINS
Segment: After that last match, Rollins goes back on the mic and congratulates Murphy and Mastiff on their win tonight. He says that what's great about Murphy & Mastiff is that not only do they get the job done, they do what they are told. And that's the problem with you Edge. You don't follow the word of law around here. You try and forge your own path. A path of greed. A path of destruction. You choose to go your own way Edge and that has to lead you here. Friendless. You see Edge, I have friends here in Murphy and Mastiff. And sure, you made Christian a sacrificial lamb over winning the stipulation choice, I get it. But was it worth the price Edge? I doubt it. I bet to Christian it wasn't. Suddenly Edge appears on the titan tron. Edge tells Rollins that he's had enough of hearing the so-called Messiah spit lies to the WWE Universe. You do not understand how hard it was to leave this business years ago and what it took to come back. You have not walked a day in my boots, Seth. You don't know the pain I've been through to get where I am today. That's why at Summerslam, I'm going to show you exactly what pain I've been through in a TLC match! Then Edge and the Viking Raiders jump Rollins and The Disciples from behind with chairs. Rollins gets away but Edge spears Murphy through a table set-up in the corner. Edge and Seth stare each other down from across the way.

Segment: Backstage Interview with Shayna Baszler. Baszler is asked about her what seems to be threats to Alexa Bliss over her possible cash-in. Baszler questions the word threats and says the word should be promising. When I go in the ring or when I go on the mic, I don't threaten somebody. It's not my goal to make someone scared of what I might do. I'm showing them exactly what I'm going to do for you. And when Alexa Bliss gets her head out of the clouds and back into my ring, I will cash in this briefcase and show her what I am all about.

-After the match, Alexa Bliss grabs the mic and tells Liv Morgan, look you may have beaten our team at Extreme Rules, but there's one thing neither of you have been able to do and that's defeat me. I am the Raw Women's Champion for a reason. There is a reason I was able to take down The Man when no one else could. I am a Goddess Liv Morgan. I am better than you in every way imaginable. I eat people like you for breakfast while I'm just sipping on my coffee. You are nothing but a tag team wrestler trying to make it to the big stage. And you won't make it there. You will never make it there, not while I am on top. See you at Summerslam bitch.

Segment: Oney Lorcan comes to the ring holding the contract for a tag team championship match at Summerslam. He grabs a mic and starts talking much more somber than usual. "Last week, me and Danny Burch won the opportunity to take on One Nation at Summerslam for the tag team championships. We were on top of the world after that grueling ladder match, but something was off. Burch told me he was hurting and we shook it off at first because of course, we'd be sore after a match like that. Unfortunately, the pain continued longer than it should have so he went to the WWE doctors and he got some bad news. Burch has*Insert bad injury here* and he's gonna be out of action for quite some time, which means we won't be getting that title shot come Sunday." Lorcan looks distraught but snaps out of it "However that doesn't mean there won't be a title match at all. I talked to GM Paige and given the circumstances, I think we worked out a solution. 4 teams will compete tonight in 2 matches. The winners of those matches will go onto Summerslam where the winners will be receiving this contract for a match against One Nation for the championships later in the night. The first match will be happening right now."
