The show starts with the arrival of Drew McIntyre. In a video recap, we see McIntyre secure the chance for another WWE Championship match last week after defeating Braun Strowman and Randy Orton.
In the ring he talks about winning last week’s No. 1 challenger match and also mentions the attack by T-Bar and Mace. He knew mastermind MVP was behind it. McIntyre wonders when will both of them take off those stupid masks and wear suits. But as far as the attack is concerned, he would like to return the favor.
MVP comes out and clarifies that he hasn’t recruited T-Bar and Mace. Rather, Bobby Lashley tried to downsize The Hurt Business and defeated McIntyre all by himself. McIntyre doubts, after all, Lashley tried to knock him out with the support of some superstars before WrestleMania.
McIntyre leaves the ring to confront MVP. Another devious attack by T-Bar and Mace follows. They both bring McIntyre into the ring and double chokeslam on him. Afterwards, both heels run into the backstage area, paying no attention to MVP. MVP looks happy.

Orton admits McIntyre’s win last week, but will wait for the winner of the WWE Championship Match at WrestleMania Backlash. Riddle interrupts Orton’s interview and is thrilled because he has always wanted to meet an Apex Predator and wonders what that actually means. Since neither of them have a title, they should form a team called “RK-Bro”. Orton shows no interest and just walks away.
After another commercial break in the backstage area: Orton confronts Pearce and wants a match against this guy with the scooter tonight. (Note: A match between Randy Orton and Braun Strowman was advertised in the official Raw preview).
Video: Charlotte Flair returned to Raw last week.
Charlotte is in the ring talking about her promo from last week. She didn’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings, she was just telling the truth. All the ladies in the locker room hate her, but no one can complain, because none of her fellow campaigners was taken from a planned WrestleMania match. “The Queen” claims that she can defeat Rhea Ripley and Asuka together. She doesn’t want to be disrespectful to Asuka, after all, Asuka is one of the best, but she doesn’t have to like the Japanese. Charlotte will show Asuka why she is “The Queen”.
Asuka interrupts. But before she can utter a word, Rhea Ripley shows up. Charlotte invites Ripley to sit at the ring after her match against Asuka so she can take some notes. Ripley accepts the offer, but thinks Asuka will defeat Charlotte.
