The crowd chants "we want tables" and Strowman is happy to oblige. The crowd is going nuts with "YES" chants!
...
The collision between the two sees Strowman get the better of it. Strowman is about to assault Kane's neck again but Kane escapes. One right hand is all it takes to knock Kane down!

The two are going at it outside the ring. Strowman is just focused on decimating the Big Red Machine! The two have steel steps on their hands. Something's gonna happen!

Dana Brooke is backstage talking to Titus Worldwide about wanting to be in on the group. Titus welcomes her as the head statistician or something.

The Monstrous main event is NEXT!

Dean Ambrose vs Samoa Joe - First time ever. NOW!

Kurt Angle tells a technician backstage to re-enforce the ring due to what happened last time. Jason Jordan comes in and apologises to Kurt Angle for what happened last week. He still asks him why he didn't put him against Samoa Joe because of all that he's been doing. He even slightly provoked Kurt Angle over Stephanie berating him. 

Kurt Angle says that holding his own against top opponents isn't enough, because he didn't win. He said that he was talking as the GM and not his father. He told Jordan that he'll give him a match against Joe when he feels and not when Jordan wants it. A distraught Jordan says "Ok Dad, or should I say, ok Kurt?"

Absolution gets cleared from the ring by the women's locker room, who seemingly stands in a united front.

They surround the ring again. Asuka starts the attack and takes out Mandy and DeVille and even gets Paige in an armbar. The numbers catch upto her and Paige gets ready for a Rampaige. The entire RAW Women's locker room comes out and clear Absolution. Even Nia Jax and Alexa Bliss is out!
...
A referee is checking on Alicia Fox. Paige says she's heard of Asuka and she respects her. She says that they "let" her go the past few weeks ago. She says that not even her, "the last beacon of hope" can stop absolution. Paige warns her to either move out of the way or they'll make her.
...
Surprise, surprise. It's Absolution. Are they going to attack the undefeated Empress?
...
Alicia Fox isn't coming out. I smell absolution

The greatest champion in NXT history. The most dominant champion in NXT history is here. Ladies and gentlemen, The Empress Of Tomorrow: ASUKA is here!
