She was then joined by Triple H inside the ring whose promo was cut short by Kurt Angle who wanted a piece of The Game. This segment was soon interrupted by Jason Jordan, and Braun Strowman, as both of them wanted to face Triple H. The GM rather booked Jordan vs Strowman for later the night.
Finn Balor and Samoa Joe locked horns for the first time in a match on WWE Raw. It was a physical contest that saw the former two NXT Champions tearing each other apart.

While the match was ongoing, Paige’s music hit the arena, as the entire crowd just exploded. She was addressing the crowd when Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville from NXT and came down to the ring and started attacking all the participants in the matchup alongside the returning superstar.
