Episode #5 (December 4, 2020):
Segment: Roman Reigns open up Raw. Reigns says that he has proved without an ounce of doubt who truly belongs in this business. And that is ruthlessness. I know what to do when things are rough, I know where to go and what to say. I am the leader in sports-entertainment, the head of the table. Keith Lee, you are just a titleholder while I am a champion. You can't do what has to be done. I am the head of the table Roman Reigns. the rightful WWE Champion and at TLC, I will take my place back. WWE Champion Keith Lee comes out. Keith Lee says that Roman is right. I'm not ruthless. I'm not cold, not heartless, not cruel. I have compassion and respect for people Roman. That includes you. You've done a lot in this business But that's just it Roman. I am the current WWE Champion. And I've won it by being a good person. You ran a mob that captured me and falsified a title reign. That's not ruthless Roman. That's illegal. That's immoral. You are a bad person Roman. You've been corrupted by your own hubris and you don't even understand what's happening. And here's the thing Roman, I am the WWE Champion, not you. And I've prided myself on challenging those who deserve it. How do you deserve anything Roman? Why do you think you do? I'll tell you why. You were the chosen hero of the WWE Universe and we weren't that you lost it. The moment you lost your lead, you crumbled. You become a monster to defend your appointed place. I've earned my spot. I've put in the work. And I'm the WWE Champion. Suddenly, Dijakovic attacks Keith Lee from behind and proceeds to put Lee into the Backbreaker set-up for Dijakovic's Feast Your Eyes, until McIntyre's music hits, with Drew making the save once again. McIntyre grabs the mic and says that it looks like this isn't going to stop until someone does the stopping. And on Mr. Lee's behalf, we challenge you two to a match tonight. We'll see you in the ring boys.

Segment: Backstage Interview with Mickie James. Charly welcomes her to Raw and congratulates her on her Survivor Series match. James thanks Charly and says that facing newcomer Chelsea Green was a cool bucket list item for her and although she didn't win at Survivor Series it was fun nonetheless. James is asked about the incident between Ripley and Morgan, many of which people are calling the reason Raw's Women's Survivor Series Team fell apart. James said that she hopes both are ok but she didn't understand what the issue was between them. Morgan was the captain of our team and she was leading us to victory. I can't speak on their relationship behind the scenes, but it definitely felt like Morgan could have picked anyone to team with and they would have been successful, but hey that's what happens when you're on top right? Charly asks if she thinks Rhea is lying. James says that she doesn't know what it is, but she supports Liv Morgan. We all have our goals and mine is winning some gold. So tonight, I got a match against another bucket lister in Candice LeRae. I beat her, maybe I can get a shot at the Raw Women's Championship. Thanks, Charly. And then James walks away.

Well I'm champion and---MVP and The LLC walk up and MVP interrupts Ricochet. MVP says that he's heard about enough from you Ric.

I came back to secure my legendary status and cement my spot as the best person in this business. That's the truth. And you can talk about being the truth while only sharing your opinion, but the truth is only presented by facts. So let's look at the facts. You and I have only faced each other once in our entire careers. It was the Raw after Night of Champions in 2010 where you won the United States Championship. And let me tell you who hit a spear and pinned you for 3 that night. It was me. That's the facts and that is the Truth. You can say you can beat me all over the globe but the fact of the matter is that I've beaten you once already. So let's run it back Daniel. You say I'm this relic of the past, that I'm damaging the past. Let's bring the past into the future. You and me, once again. This time at TLC. The match that I perfected, the TLC match. And history will repeat itself when I pin you 1,2,3.

Show Opener: Sasha Banks opens Smackdown. She comes to the ring and grabs a mic."I know I've been quiet since Survivor Series, that's because I lost to Shayna Baszler. I'm the only champion on Smackdown who lost their match and that weighs heavily on me. However, that doesn't change the fact that I'm still the champion and I still made my way to the top by fighting my way there. I'm still the most dominant woman in this division and I'm not going to let anyone take that away from me, especially not an entitled brat like Charlotte. She has never had to earn anything in her entire life, she got where she is by being Ric Flair's daughter. She's handed title shots left and right and if she wants to step up to The Boss, then the Queen is going to find out why I'm the one sitting on the throne here on Smackdown." Charlotte's music hits and she comes to the ring. "Sasha, you can come at me all you want to, but once you start saying I didn't earn anything I have in this company, that's where I draw the line. I worked just as hard as you did, hell we trained together in NXT, we fought in NXT, we came up together! I've had to do as much scratching and clawing as you have to get where I am today and you know that. You want to disrespect me, whatever, but never say I didn't work hard. When I take that title off of you you'll see just how hard I've been working." Charlotte walks away and she and Sasha stare each other down.
Match #1: Dominik Mysterio vs. Titus O'Neil
RESULTS: DOMINIK MYSTERIO WINS
Segment: Backstage Interview with Sami Zayn about the fiend last week. Ask him if he's afraid. "Afraid? Of that guy? No way, if Bray Wyatt wants a shot at me he could come to tell me to my face, instead of hiding in that stupid "funhouse" of his. I am the Universal Champion and I think I garner more respect than that, especially since I'm going to be the best Universal Champion of all time." Sami walks away and behind him, we see Abby the Witch lurking in the background.
Match #2: Naomi vs. Natalya
