RAW kicked off at the O2 Arena in London with a very special episode of Miz TV. The Miz welcomed his special guest and the first Wildcard entry of the night, Roman Reigns. The two spoke about Reigns' upcoming match with Elias and called him a glorified wedding singer.

The topic then changed to Shane McMahon and the 'Best in the World' came out to remind the Superstars that he ran the show. Bobby Lashley and Elias attacked Miz and Reigns from behind and a fight broke out which was later officiated as a match.
