Show Opener: Drew McIntyre opens Raw. McIntyre says he's not here for pleasantries like Keith Lee. I'm not that nice. Last week, Roman Reigns cost me my #1 Contendership. And I don't think I need to talk about why he made the biggest mistake of his life. Roman Reigns get out here. After a pause, no one comes out. McIntyre decides to leave the ring. We cut to backstage and see McIntyre storming the locker room area looking for Roman's room. He passes other wrestlers like Ali & Alexander and Nia Jax and Tamina, holding baseball bats I might add, and Mcintyre asks them if they've seen Roman, they all say no. Eventually, McIntyre finds Roman's locker room with 5 security guards outside. McIntyre starts to dispatch them but then Heyman comes out and stops him. McIntyre grabs Heyman by the throat but Heyman tries to come him down. Heyman tells McIntyre that he has a message from Roman. Heyman tells McIntyre that if you want Roman, you're going to have to come back later, cause he's not here. But Roman wanted me to tell you that he's a reasonable guy. He says he can make sure you become #1 Contender, all you have to do is call him the rightful champion and the head of the table. McIntyre refuses and throws Heyman against the wall.
