Randy came out mad and said that The Miz was trying to pull a fast one and even told The Miz to try to take him out right then and there.
Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods (The New Day) came out and there was some exchange before a brawl started in the ring. Drew came out to help, but the segment ended with Drew getting and RKO from Randy.
Elias vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Riddle
This match was created to determine the final man on the RAW’s men team for Survivor Series. Elias started it off sitting in the middle of the ring to play a song, and he paused a few times to see of Jeff Hardy will interrupt. When he did finally start playing, Jeff came out and then Riddle followed shortly after.
The match started with the 3 men trying to end the match early with quick roll up pins. There was some good back and forth between the three of the men. All three showcased their skills as AJ Styles watched from backstage. At one point it seemed Jeff had a good advantage for a good chunk of the match until Elias took him down with a Drift Away. The match ended with Riddle knocking Jeff out of the ring and hitting the Bro Derek on Elias for a pin to win the match.
