Stephanie understands Braun is upset over what Corbin did to him at WWE Crown Jewel and he has the right to be but he can’t hold RAW hostage. Fans boo Stephanie and a “yes he can” chant briefly starts up. Stephanie appreciates the rage and aggression but she needs him to channel it to something more important, Survivor Series. She says her brother disrespected all of RAW when he stole the World Cup tournament win. She asks if he’s going to let her brother disrespect him and the entire locker room. Braun says he doesn’t give a damn about Shane or fighting for Stephanie at Survivor Series. Stephanie bucks back at Braun in his face and says Braun better start giving a damn, everyone in the back better start giving a damn too. Braun says he knows how Stephanie and the other corporate look at him but he’s tired of talking, she needs to bring her lap dog Corbin out so they can get this over. Stephanie says she doesn’t underestimate Braun and she has a business opportunity for him. Stephanie says Braun can have anything he wants if RAW wins at Survivor Series. Her word is her bond. Fans boo that line.

Strowman only wants another WWE Universal Title shot against Brock Lesnar. Stephanie says it’s done. But before that, Strowman wants Corbin. Fans pop and Stephanie says it’s done. Strowman wants to pick the stipulations. Stephanie says done. Strowman tells Stephanie to make sure Corbin signs a waiver so he’s not responsible for the damages. Stephanie says that might take some more time as she needs to run it by lawyers but she thinks she can get it done but there’s one condition – Strowman doesn’t lay a finger on Corbin until after Survivor Series so he can prove he’s a team player. He can have whatever he wants after Survivor Series. Strowman says he will go to WWE HQ and destroy the whole building if he doesn’t get what he’s promised. Stephanie goes on about how she’s here to motivate the entire RAW roster but the music interrupts and out comes RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey.

Stephanie introduces Rousey but Rousey snatches the mic from her hand. Rousey says Stephanie can save the pep talk because nothing can motivate her more than she already is. She’s been waiting for a challenge like The Man, SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, and she’s tired of hearing about her arm getting snatched. Rousey can’t wait to show Becky how it’s done. Fans chant for Becky. Rousey says maybe she won’t have to wait. She drops the mic and turns her attention to Stephanie, staring her down. Stephanie looks terrified.

Rollins says Ambrose isn’t stupid and knows exactly why he did what he did, he’s just not man enough to come out and tell him. Ambrose appears on the big screen and Graves points Rollins to him.

Ambrose is sitting outside of the arena on the hood of a red car. There is a fire barrel next to him. Ambrose says he’s man enough to come and beat Rollins up but he’s not going to do that because the people don’t deserve it. Ambrose doesn’t owe Rollins or the people an explanation, he doesn’t owe anything to anyone. Ambrose mocks Rollins and says The Architect doesn’t have all the answers this time. He wonders if Rollins was just too selfish and self-absorbed to see what was going on around him. Ambrose says maybe he regrets what he did, maybe he’s remorseful, maybe he hopes he can be back with his boys one day but no, that’s not it and not happening. Ambrose used to think The Shield was stronger together but he knows the truth is that The Shield made him weak, Rollins made him weak.
