Drew knows what it’s like to wonder where your next paycheck is coming from, something Orton has never experienced because he’s always been protected. Drew goes on ranting about Orton and says Orton recently declared himself the greatest wrestler ever for winning the match at Backlash, so he must be the greatest wrestler now that he beat Orton, with a wrestling hold at SummerSlam.

Black closes the door before commercial.
Owens is out in the ring and he introduces Aliester Black.
Owens asks Black how he’s doing and how his eye is. Black tells Owens to just show the footage. Owens doesn’t think we need to see it, but Black insists. We see footage of Murphy injuring Black last month. Owens thinks he knows exactly what Black is feeling because Rollins and his disciples can get under your skin. They did it to Owens, making him question why he’s here. Owens keeps talking and Black sort of stumbles out of his chair, to the mat on one knee. Owens gets up and checks on Black, calling for help from the back. Black decks him, then drops him with Black Mass. Black stares down at Owens on the mat, then makes his exit as the music hits.

Orton takes the mic and goes on about how he’s done what he whatever he wants for the longest time, to whoever he wants to do it to. Orton says that didn’t happen at SummerSlam. He promised to everyone that he would RKO Drew, kick him in the head and take his title, but he didn’t. Orton says you can call him a lot of things but one thing he is and forever will be is a man of his word. He promised he’d kill various Legends and he did, because he is The Legend Killer. Orton says Drew came out here earlier and he was presented with the opportunity to kick Drew in the head, so he did and it felt so good.
Orton says he kicked Drew twice earlier because he offered Orton a rematch out of pity. Who the hell do you think you are? Orton reminds Drew who he is – The Legend Killer, the greatest wrestler… the music interrupts and out comes Keith Lee to make his official RAW debut. Lee marches to the ring as Orton stares him down.
Lee smirks at Orton as they stare each other down. Lee takes a mic and says Orton seems a little perplexed. Lee says that would make sense as they haven’t been properly introduced, so allow him. Lee introduces himself and says he’s come here to offer Orton this spectacular opportunity, this luxury, this privilege to stop what he’s doing for just one moment and bask in Lee’s glory. Lee goes on about how Orton has been called The Viper, Apex Predator, Legend Killer… Lee has been called many things also – Game Changer, Anomaly, but one thing is for certain – he’s Limitless and since The Limitless One is here on RAW, and since his not so good-friend Orton is looking for a fight… with respect to Lee’s friend Drew, Lee says he would step up, if Orton is willing to accept the challenge for a one-on-one match right here, right now. Lee drops the mic and Orton circles him. Orton asks Lee if he wants to fight. Orton asks again and takes off his jacket but changes his mind and says maybe later. Orton rolls out of the ring to boos. Lee stares Orton down from the ring and Orton looks back at him.

Vega storms off to get ready for her match. Garza talks to Burnett and she mentions speaking to Ivar this past weekend. He tells Burnett she can come watch his match next, then he flirts some with Charly before walking off. Burnett follows. Back to commercial.

Henry says he’s already told Mustafa Ali, Cedric Alexander, MVP and Shelton Benjamin to stay in the back so this can be a fair competition. Lashley says he doesn’t need MVP or Shelton because we know how this is going to go. He’s not going to beat Crews up too bad so he can beat him up again at Payback for the title. Lashley calls Crews a little man. Crews says that’s funny. Crews touts the win over MVP, is confident about Payback and says he will also beat Lashley tonight in this Arm Wrestling Contest.
Henry gets them ready for the first and only round but Lashley quickly jerks his arm back. Lashley stalls and takes his jacket off as the boos pick up. They get ready to go again but Crews outsmarts Lashley and gets the win by stomping on his foot under the table, then slamming his arm down. Lashley is furious while Crews laughs around the ring.

Lana starts praising Natalya on the mic. Natalya interrupts and says she will get her WWE Hall of Fame induction on her own, because… she is the greatest of all time, which Lana says with her. Natalya says they’re here tonight to pay tribute to Mickie James. They go on about Mickie riding their coattails. Natalya says tonight they will retire… the chick with the kick. Natalya tells us to watch this reel she worked really hard to put together, showing highlights from Mickie’s career. There’s nothing on the video. The laugh about that being Mickie’s career – nothing.
The music hits and out comes Mickie to the ring. She immediately drops Natalya. Lana comes over but Mickie drops her with a Chick Kick. Mickie is all smiles as her music starts back up. She backs up the ramp asking if we missed her.
