Highlights of the rivalry between the Street Profits and the Viking Raiders. Profits are backstage and are interrupted by the Viking Raiders. Profits so they can be friends but when the bell rings, they'll do whatever it takes to keep the gold. Raiders say they're getting their gold. That match is next. They all walk away and then Zelina Vega shows up and she's thinking something...

The Street Profits defeated the Viking Raiders to retain the WWE Raw Tag Team championships. Profits won when Dawkins delivered the Cash Out to Ivar and Ford followed up with a frog splash. All four men embraced after the match.

Edge is up next!!!

Reminder that the Broken Skull Sessions return this Sunday with Mark Henry as the guest!! Those are always good.

Highlights of the saga between Orton/Edge/Christian.

Edge is sitting in a ring and he's not convinced Orton proved he's the better wrestler. Edge says he saw panic is Orton's eyes and it's convenient he hit an "accidental" low blow. He tells Orton to go ahead and parade and celebrate. Edge says it won't happen again. Edge says not being able to pick up his daughters on Father's Day and after what Orton did to Christian, he put the PG superstar to bed. Edge is thankful for that. Orton woke up the side of Edge that will do whatever it takes to get to the top and he doesn't care what he has to do. Edge says Orton will wish "Cowboy" Bob was firing blanks the night Orton was conceived. Edge says he will tear Orton's life apart and Orton has no idea what he has done. Orton woke up the evil. Orton woke up the "Rated R Superstar", Edge says "Get some sleep while you can, Randy".

Charly interviews Randy Orton backstage. Orton says when a snake is backed into a corner, it'll strike. He says Edge and Christian tried to have their come backs at his expense. He struck wildly but will do what he has to do to defend his family. Orton says they'll recover and live happy lives as long as their far, far away from him.

Charly interviews Charlotte. Charlotte gives Asuka credit for targeting her arm that Nia injured. Nia Jax attacks Charlotte from behind and beats her down and works on her injured arm.

R-Truth is about to face Akira Tozawa when Bobby Lashley and MVP show up. Lashley destroys all the ninjas!! Lashley then destroys out Truth! Tozawa was hiding the whole time!! HE PINS TRUTH!! TOZAWA IS THE NEW CHAMP!!

Sara Schreiber tries to get an update on Charlotte. Natalya interrupts and says she needs to be the locker room leader with Becky Lynch gone and Charlotte out. Natalya has something important to say but the interview is out of time. Sara should of been interviewing her instead of waiting for Charlotte. Natalya faces Liv Morgan next and then she'll make her announcement.

Lana accompanied Natalya to the ring! Lana distracted Liv and that allowed Natalya to lock in the Sharpshooter forcing Liv to tap out! It appears Natalya has turned heel.

Charly interviews Big Show. She asks him about fighting ninjas along side the tag team champs. He says he has seen it all now and he couldn't pass up punching a ninja. He plugs his show on Netflix. Big Show says he's not all fun and games. He'll be heading to the ring as a heartless, angry giant.

Commentary says McIntyre vs. Ziggler is official for Extreme Rules. Odd since McIntyre already accepted earlier. Anyways, it's official.

Ric Flair is here now. First, he says when Charlotte is healthy again, she'll be back to take Nia out. Now, he's been telling people forever that Orton is the best in the business. In 24 hours time, he punted Edge and Christian back into retirement. He introduces Orton. Flair calls Orton the most dominant performer in the WWE. Flair says he's the best performer in the history of WWE and Flair is honored to be there with him. Orton says nostalgia is great but sometimes it can be confused. It was nostalgia when Flair showed last week he was still the dirtiest player in the game. It was nostalgia with Christian last week and with Edge at Backlash. Orton being the Legend Killer isn't nostalgia. It's further cementing his legacy. He is getting pleasure being the Legend Killer. HERE COMES THE BIG SHOW!! He's had enough!! Big Show says Orton will pay what he did to Edge and Christian. He calls Orton a narcissistic parasite. Show says Orton is now latched onto Flair because Orton has no motivation. Show says he knows Edge isn't done and he will cut pay back. Show says Edge will have to get pay back along with him because he wants to tear Orton apart. Orton calls Show a future hall of famer and says some may even call him a legend. Orton says it would be tragic if Show suffered the same fate as Edge and Christian. Show challenges Orton to go now but Orton bails. Orton says Show knows what Orton is capable of so it's up to Show what happens next.
