We open with a Wyatt vignette... extra creepy. The Wyatt Family debuts tonight!
In ring, we find Vickie Guerrero and Brad Maddox--Team Brickie--welcoming us to Raw with a ladder set up behind them. Vickie says that the ladder is a symbol of spectacle. The ladder represents how Vickie has climbed in her career in the WWE. Vickie climbs the ladder... in high heels. Vickie sits atop the ladder and talks about how difficult it is for a woman to be successful in a male-dominated environment. She navigated her way through on her own. She’s aware that the WWE Universe doesn’t like her, but every decision she ever made was because of them. Jerry Lawler interrupts Vickie and says that he just received word that the McMahon family will be considering all factors in Vickie Guerrero’s job evaluation--including the WWE Universe’s opinions. There’s a poll on the WWE app where the fans can grade Vickie’s performance.
Vickie says that she considers the WWE Universe her family. She asks Maddox if he has her back and Maddox gives the thumbs-up. Vickie announces that tonight, John Cena will be face-to-face with the #1 Contender to his Title, Mark Henry. Also, Christian will face Kane; Randy Orton will face CM Punk; Sheamus will face off against Daniel Bryan!

Vince insinuates that HHH is being short-sighted. Vince says he wants to name Vickie permanent General Manager of Raw.
HHH says that it doesn’t matter what he says, because Vince is going to do whatever he wants... that’s why he has Vickie as a spineless puppet in a position of power, so she can kiss Vince’s ass. HHH proposes that they let Stephanie decide Vickie’s fate.
Stephanie is caught between her father and her husband, both goading her to agree with them.
Stephanie says this has escalated and she doesn’t want anything to drive a wedge between her family... so they’ll let the WWE app vote decide!

It’s time for the masses to wake up to the lie they’re living in. Wyatt has seen it all and he understands... this is not the beginning. This is the end.

We see Vickie leaving in tears with all her things in a box. She looks miserable. She runs into Ryback, backstage. Ryback takes the box from her and puts it down... then hugs her. “You deserve better, Vickie. It’s going to be okay.” Ryback gives her back her things and leaves. That was odd.
