WWE Raw Results enjoyed a recap of the Mysterio and Seth Rollins feud and finished by showing a tweet where Rollins was instructing his disciple Murphy how to atone for his mistakes when we returned.
As the Mysterio family arrived, Murphy walked out behind them, leaving us guessing prior to the commercial break and the Mysterio family interview.
We returned from commercial as the Mysterio family came out to the ring to be interviewed by Charly Caruso. Rey and Dominik, along with Rey’s wife Angle and his daughter Aaliyah.
Charly welcomed them to the WWE Thunderdome, then turned to Rey for a recovery update from his torn triceps.
He said though he wasn’t able to get closure yet to Rollins, he can’t wait to get back in the ring to end things with Rollins.
Charly asked if he had any advice against Murphy later tonight.
Rey said he’s proud of Dominik and he know what he needs to do to put an end to a desperate Murphy.
Murphy then appeared on the titantron, interrupting Charly’s question to Dominik.
Murphy pointed out it was because of Dominik that the one person that picked him up wants nothing to do with him.
Rey interceded that it’s no one’s fault but Murphy’s for aligning with Rollins.
Murphy admitted he’s right, but he wanted to up the ante tonight and challenged Dominik to a Street Fight. He wants to end Dominik’s career, and this is his plan.
Dominik accepted, and Murphy applauded him and told him to have hi family at ringside since it’ll be the last match of Dominik’s they’ll ever see.
Dominik closed it out by promising to end Murphy if he touches any of his family.
Afterwards, it was announced that there’ll be two handicapped matches. The Riott Squad will face Shayna Baszler 2 on 1, then they’ll face Nia Jax 2 on 1.
No gimmicks here, right?
Backstage, Baszler and Jax were questioning Pearce about why they had to be in handicap matches.
As Pearce tried to explain the company’s reasoning, Drew McIntyre walked past checking his phone.
McIntyre told Pearce to relax and continued walking.
It was then announced that Asuka will face Mickie James next week for the Raw Women’s Champion, but first she and Mickie James will face Natalya and Lana.

Natalya hit with a suplex and pounded on her before picking her up for a body slam.
James slipped back and rolled Natalya up for a near pinfall, and Natalya had to catch her before she could tag out.
