The show opens with AJ, Gallows and Anderson making their way down to the ramp, as we get a bit of a recap from the 6-man tag match from Monday Night RAW, with Xavier Woods being put out of action before the match had even begun, only for John Cena to come in and lay out the Club after the match. Of course, John Cena and AJ Styles are facing each other at Money in the Bank a week from Sunday, and the New Day and the Club are part of a fatal fourway tag team match, along with Enzo and Cass and the Vaudevillains.
AJ starts talking about the fact that people are describing this as possibly the best Money in the Bank ever, and points out that he and Cena might end up on opposite sides of the brand split so it’s possible that this will be the only time we get the opportunity to see them together. He tries to remind us about the promos that he and Cena cut on each other on RAW, and I mean, I appreciated that he stepped up, but I mostly remember Cena’s lines so I’m not sure AJ wants to be reminding me of that. It turns out AJ has an evil chuckle I’d generously describe as second only to Seth Rollins, so I can forgive him quite a few things.
