– Back after the break, behind the scenes, the Bloodline arrests Adam Peace. Jimmy says it was a message from the Bloodline. Pearce says that tonight there will be a Tag Team Turmoil and the winning team will earn a match for the tag team titles. The Usos will leave for the rest of the evening and Sikoa will have to face Dolph Ziggler whom he victimized.

– We present a video of the match between Bianca Belair and Alexa Bliss last Monday on RAW. Commentators report that Belair is uninjured from Bliss’ attack. Alexa Bliss lands on the commentary table. She says Belair may be the champion, but she’s the only one here. Belair is not afraid of Bray Wyatt or Uncle Howdy, but of her, because she is the face of evil. And she’s never felt better, because she’s taking control. She’s got the world in her hands and she’s not afraid to use them to tag Belair and take the title. Alexa Bliss gets cut off by a video of Uncle Howdy asking her if she really feels in control. Smoke rolls off stage and Uncle Howdy comes onto the stage. Howdy is laughing.

– Back, the wrestlers arrive. The match was about to start, but Bayley takes the microphone. Bayley says she wants to send a message to Becky Lynch. She knows Becky is watching with his obsession for her. The match will be dedicated especially for Becky. She does not know if Becky is jealous because she is not able to have a friend. Maybe Becky is missing tonight because she can’t live with the thought of losing. Sky and Kai have been working hard, so she’s giving them off tonight so they can go backstage.

– Commentators announce that Johnny Gargano is suffering from a ligament sprain in his shoulder and he will be back very soon. Behind the scenes, Cathy asks Candice LeRae for an update on Gargano. LeRae says Gargano won’t be able to compete on Tag Team Turmoil, but he needs to come back 100% before wrestling. Cathy asks what awaits LeRae for the future. LeRae says the Royal Rumble is coming, everyone dreams of that moment. Rhea Ripley arrives and says LeRae is crazy to think she can win the Rumble Match. She is ready to break it into pieces to show him. LeRae says they don’t have to wait for the Rumble. Ripley accepts.

– Back, Austin Theory arrives in the ring and takes the microphone. Theory says the champion is HERE! The truth is that he is the present and the present is forever. Where is our visionary? Where is Seth Rollins? He thought Rollins was going to defeat him, humiliate him, but Rollins’ old knee couldn’t hold on. We know what happened last Monday, Seth Rollins was passed, Seth Rollins was brought to school by United States Champion Austin Theory. Seth Rollins’ music starts and he arrives on crutches. Rollins throws a crutch and shows that he can finally walk on a crutch. The crowd sings its theme song. Theory says fans may be singing his theme song and it’s real, but the hurt is also real. Rollins wants to pretend he’s fine, but he beat him last Monday. If Rollins is the mountain of business, he is the pinnacle of business. Rollins is good, but he’s gotten past him and he’s ready for big things. Like when he’s going to win the 2023 Royal Rumble Match. But there is more ! After winning the Rumble he will go to WrestleMania to emerge as the United States Champion and the new WWE Universal Champion.

Rollins asks him if he’s finished. Rollins says he needs to give an update on his knee. The truth is that his knee is not 100%. But his knee will be 100% just in time for him to win the Royal Rumble. Which leaves plenty of time for Seth Freakin Rollins to make the main event of WrestleMania. By the same token he came here to hear the fans sing. Fans start singing again. Rollins says they will meet again at the Rumble. Rollins leaves him his crutch and leaves the ring, but the music of Bobby Lashley begins! Lashley passes Rollins on the ramp and approaches the ring. Theory tells Lashley to stay out of the ring, Lashley is the past. Lashley enters the ring, dodges a kickstand and spears Theory! Lashley kicks Theory out of the ring. Lashley says it doesn’t matter who’s in the Royal Rumble because he’s back. His suspension is over and he can’t wait to get all the wrestlers out of the ring.

– Back, the wrestlers arrive in the ring.

Lashley refuses to shake hands with MVP. MVP says Lashley should thank him for getting him back on RAW. He wants to see everyone come together to review the good things they all do together.

– Backstage, Cathy asks Dolph Ziggler what he thinks about before his match. Ziggler says he remains focused on being the best. The Bloodline has crossed the line, so he’s here for revenge. Mustafa Ali says he just walked out of Pearce’s office who told him that Ziggler turned down Tag Team Turmoil to face Sikoa. Ali says Ziggler owes him a favor, why is he now wasting his chance to become a champion? Ziggler says tonight is not about titles or about Ali.

– Back, behind the scenes, Byron Saxton asks Bronson Reed why he helped the Miz. Reed was going to answer, but the Miz arrives. Miz says it’s because the two help each other. Reed is a bully, but also someone with an ethic. If anyone plays with him, it’s with both. He also wants to invite Reed as a VIP for MizTV, anything for his friend. Reed says there is no us, if Miz wants something he has to pay for it.

– Back, behind the scenes, Cathy stops Bayley to get her reaction to her victory. Bayley says it was a message to Becky and the entire roster that Damage CTRL is the dominant clan. Michin arrives and says Bayley is proving she has to cheat. Bayley says she’s proud to see Michin coming to face her. The difference with Becky is that she’s not afraid to accept help to kick her ass. Damage CTRL starts pummeling Michin! Bayley tells her never to support someone who is away.

– Miz enters the ring to are MizTV. Miz says tonight he realized he had some great guests on MizTV. People like John Cena, Roman Reigns, but tonight for the first MizTV of 2023 he’s going to give us an exclusive look at justice. He introduces us to Dominik Mysterio from Judgment Day who arrives with his clan. Miz thanks Dominik for coming. He apologizes for the lack of chairs as he was only expecting Dominik and his Mommy. Dominik says that in prison he learned that you always have to have your clan. Miz asks how it was inside. Dominik says those who swing get beat up. Miz says everyone wants to know what happened. Dominik says you have to imagine being locked up with the most dangerous people in the world and not knowing when to eat. You either have to be pushed or you have to push. Miz asks what he chose. Dominik says he had to do what he had to do if he wanted to see Mommy again. He had to take life by the balls, like Maryse did with Miz.

Miz says this story isn’t about him. Damian Priest tells Dominik to tell his story about the guy. Dominik says he slept on the highest bed and he heard his fellow inmate say he wanted to punch a hole in his head. So he attacked him asking if he still had a problem. Miz asks the crowd to applaud Dominik for his perseverance. Miz says he has to ask, his sources say Dominik only spent a few hours in jail. Priest gets angry asking what he said. Miz says he may have been misinformed. Priest says Dominik will be there to see them win Tag Team Turmoil. They are coming for the tag team titles. OC music begins.
