Segment: Backstage Interview with the return of Chad Gable. Charly welcomes Gable back to Raw. Gable says that he's glad to be back to Raw. His injury was hard to get over but he returned way faster than anyone expects, 5 weeks earlier in fact. Charly asks if there was something that made him want to return early. Gable says first there was the obvious. It's being in that ring. I know it sounds cheesy, but I love wrestling. I love performing. I feel like I was made to be in that ring in front of the WWE Universe. Second, and it's a more personal note, is about Daniel Bryan. You see Charly, he was my mentor before I got injured. He pushed me hard cause he believed I was the future of this business. But lately, he's gone off the deep end a bit. It feels like he's sorta lost his mind since I got injured. I don't know if it's because he blames himself or whatever, but I know that I've trained hard to return and I want to prove to him that the future is now tonight.

-After the match, Bryan, weirdly distraught, leaves the ring and grabs a chair and a mic. He sets the chair down next to Gable and says that he appreciates everything Gable has done and he has proven himself to be the future of this business. The future is in good hands. Bryan yells that however, he is the present. I am Daniel Bryan. I am a professional wrestler. And you Edge, don't belong. Bryan leaves the ring to grab a ladder. Bryan brings the ladder back into the ring. Bryan then climbs the ladder, all while saying, People have been right for a decade now. I am the best wrestler in the world. I am beyond being the greatest of all-time, I am simply the greatest. Edge you are nothing more than a man that abuses my craft to please you all. I am not here to please you all. I am here to cement my legacy as the greatest. Edge, I accept your challenge. But with one catch, if I win, you go back to up north and get out of my WWE. If I win Edge, you go back to taking care of your children and getting fat off of donuts. Edge, if I win, you retire. Suddenly, Edge comes out and Bryan climbs down the ladder, but not fast enough to avoid getting speared by Edge. Edge picks up the ladder and slams it into Bryan. Edge grabs the mic and accepts. Edge goes over to Chad Gable and helps him up. When Edge turns around, Gable grabs the chair that Bryan brought it earlier and throws at the back of Edge. Gable hits Edge with the chair a couple of times, helps u Bryan and they both beat down Edge to stand tall at the end.

However, it isn't all bad news. Tonight we are going to have a small tag team eliminator to determine who will face Undisputed Era at TLC in a ladder match for the Championships!

Fish speaks up "Yeah, We weren't even around when they got attacked. We headed back to our hotel after they beat Breezango since there were no other tag matches that night." Paige asks "Do you have any proof of that?" Fish pulls out his phone and says "Uh, yeah here's an Uber Receipt from that night." Paige looks it over and says "Okay, thank you.

Segment: Morrison and Andrade get called into Paige's office. Paige sits them down and says "You both probably know why you're here, so I'll just cut right to the chase. Where were you guys 2 weeks ago when the Usos got attacked?" Morrison says "We were pulling a late night at the gym, we weren't booked that night but we figured we'd stop by and use the facilities and scope out some competition in the tag scene. If we wanted to take out The Usos we would have done it on TV in front of everyone, not in secret. We would want them to know it was us who beat them. Are we done here?" Paige nods "Sure, I did hear from a couple of people that you guys were at the gym that night and you have a big match to prep for tonight, so go ahead, but you aren't 100% off the hook yet."
