There was a segment with Drew McIntyre and WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins during which McIntyre expressed that he wanted another title match. Rollins responded by saying he felt there were people ahead of McIntyre and then proceeded to say Jey Uso is getting a title match on 12/4. McIntyre headbutted Rollins and making the save was Jey Uso. 

Following up on that, Sami Zayn ran into Drew backstage and their exchange resulted in a match between them being made official for the 12/4 Raw. 

In the opening segment of the show, Randy Orton stated that he has unfinished business with The Bloodline. Jey Uso later approached Orton and wanted to squash their issues. Orton agreed to now that Jey is out of The Bloodline, but added that he’s still going after the group. 

A new Monday Night Raw theme song debuted during the intro. 

It was announced that WWE United States Champion Logan Paul is scheduled for the 12/4 Friday Night SmackDown in Brooklyn, New York and he’ll be looking for his next challenger. Paul became champion by defeating Rey Mysterio at Crown Jewel

Grammy-nominated country music artist Jelly Roll was featured in a backstage segment with R-Truth, The Creed Brothers (Julius & Brutus Creed), New Day (Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston) and Alpha Academy (Chad Gable, Otis, Maxxine Dupri & Akira Tozawa). He was ringside for the Tag Team Turmoil match that took place. Jelly Roll also got involved in Randy Orton and Dominik Mysterio’s singles match when he pushed Mysterio and J.D. McDonagh. Orton secured the win in the bout.

The winners of the aforementioned Tag Team Turmoil were The Creed Brothers. They last eliminated Imperium’s Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci to secure a shot at Judgment Day’s Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships. 

Following Kaiser and Vinci’s loss, Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER demanded that they take care of D.I.Y. (Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa) on 12/4. The Miz, who fell in defeat to GUNTHER at Survivor Series, stepped up to the champion for another title match. GUNTHER stated that Miz proved he belonged in the ring, but just not with him. 

The Women’s Tag Team Titles were successfully defended by Chelsea Green and Piper Niven. They defeated Tegan Nox and Natalya.
