Booker mentions the Women’s Title Iron Man Match.
Renee mentions the tag title match. She asks how dangerous are Sheamus and Cesaro since they are on the same page.
Sam says the WWE Universe is reacting to Sheamus and Cesaro a lot more. He mentions the bar room brawl and how people are cheering for them because of them being on the same page. Booker says that New Day did it and they turned nothing into something. The toughest combatants to date are Sheamus and Cesaro. They need to be focused and on the same page. They might have to resort to shenanigans.
Booker says the New Day’s confidence is over the top.
Renee asks for predictions. Sam goes with Sheamus and Cesaro. Booker agrees.
We are back and it is time to talk about the Women’s Title match between Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair. We see the video package that aired on television this week.
Bayley, who has already been in an Iron Man Match (and won it), joins the panel. Renee asks what is going through their minds. She says you cannot prepare enough for this match. You are constantly looking at the clock. It could be your best friend or your worst enemy, but you are thinking about how many falls you get.
Renee brings up her friendship with Sasha and she asks about how is she preparing. Bayley says Sasha has a bigger point to prove tonight. This is the end of the rivalry. This is IT. She has a lot to prove tonight.
Renee asks Booker about what he thinks is going through their minds. Booker asks Bayley how she is doing and she says her shoulder is better than the last time. Booker says you need to push yourself harder than you ever have before. Booker asks Bayley what will it take for her to be in that spot. Bayley says she is waiting for whoever wins because she is next in line. Bayley says she is mentally prepared for 2017 and to hug that championship.
Renee asks for predictions and Bayley picks Sasha based on her past experience. Sam says he is rooting for Sasha. Booker says he has seen the best of the best in the business and he predicts that Charlotte will win tonight.
We take a look at the Chris Jericho versus Seth Rollins match with a video package.
Renee asks if Chris Jericho is the reason why Kevin Owens is the champion.
Sam says that Kevin has not relied on Chris Jericho to win, but it has helped. Booker says Seth came back earlier from injury because he wanted to prove that he was the guy. He has walked into a bump in the road called Chris Jericho. Chris knows all of the tricks in the book. Booker says that sometimes you have to go through an obstacle and tonight Seth needs to do it.
Renee asks if the winner of this match will be the Number One Contender. Booker says that should be the case. Sam says people want to see Seth Rollins versus HHH. If Seth looks too far forward, there will be a roadblock.
Booker says Seth will win. Sam goes with Chris Jericho and he points out that Jericho just unblocked him on Twitter, but that is not the reason.
Renee mentions the match between Sami Zayn and Braun Strowman. We see a video package.
Booker says that was the right thing Mick had to do. Braun is an experiment and you don’t go into that den.
Renee asks if anyone thinks Sami can last ten minutes. Sam says people want Sami to succeed. This might be the wrong thing. Sam says he got to see how big Braun Strowman is and he does not know if this is the right fight for Sami.
We go to Tom Phillips and the Social Media Lounge with his guest Sami Zayn.
The first question is whether he has any fear getting in the ring with Braun Strowman. He would be lying if he did not worry about what Braun could do to him, but he knows what he can do to Braun. The fear he has will get him into the zone.
The next question is about his strategy. Sami says that Braun should be strategizing him. Braun is not used to wrestling guys like him. Sami has the ability to weather the storm against anyone. Once you come out of that valley, you come out stronger on the other side.
Sami is asked about what makes him different from Braun’s other opponents. Sami says he won’t stay down. Sami says that people ask him why is he so obsessed with Braun, but it is not just about Braun. It is about his career. It is about making opportunities and standing up for yourself when people tell you that you cannot do it.
Sami goes to get ready for his match.
Renee says that Sami looked a little crazy. Booker comments on the fear on Sami’s face.
We go to footage for the announcement of the WWE UK Championship tournament in January on the WWE Network.
It is time to talk about the Cruiserweight Title Match.
They are joined by TJ Perkins at the panel.
Renee asks TJ about his biggest threat tonight. He says Brian has been running a dodge on him and they have some animosity. Rich is a buddy of his but all bets are off now that he has the title. Booker says that Swann is the favorite while TJ is pulling up the rear. TJ says that his opponents beat one man to win the title while he had to beat five to win the title. He says his experience plays a factor. He says Rich and Brian think they represent the best of the Cruiserweights, but TJ says he considers himself the Cruisergreat.
It is time to take a look at the kickoff show match between Rusev and Big Cass with a video package.
Renee asks how would Booker react if he walked in on this situation. Booker says that Enzo has to respect Rusev and his wife. Booker says he would have done the same thing as Rusev, but he also would have called the police. Sam says he would have done what Enzo did. Sam says it was entrapment.
Enzo Amore and Big Cass come out for their introduction before the match.
Enzo says he needs to give it to Lana and he calls her a femme fatale. You have the Russian accent and a great physique. If he wanted to see the Ravishing Russian and what is beneath, he would check out her WikiLeaks. He says Lana has a lot of nerve. You invite him over and ask him to come to her hotel room and then invite Rusev to the room. Enzo says he should have asked for the money first.
Enzo says that Rusev has made some dumb decisions. He married Lana. The biggest mistake he made was that he left him laying in the hallway. Enzo points out that he got up and he ain’t shuttin’ up.
Colin says that Enzo is like Rudolph and he is like Santa Claus. Colin runs through the reindeer and then he has a word to describe Rusev.

Sam says that Enzo was not in the wrong. He got tricked.
Booker wonders if Chris Jericho can paint another Picasso tonight.
Renee asks how distracted will Kevin Owens be tonight.
Sam says we cannot take Chris and Kevin being done as friends. He says it is the WWE Universe’s version of Ross and Rachel. He says they need to be back together by the end of the night. Booker says he is sick of the bromance. Kevin Owens is good and he can hold his own on any given night. He wants to see the prize fighter who would do whatever it took to win the match. He did it in the ring and within the confines of the rules. If Roman runs into this match overlooking Kevin Owens because of Chris Jericho, he will be in trouble.
Booker says men step up to the plate when it is on the line. Roman has been there before. Sam says the fans are not on Roman’s side. It is because they know what Roman can do. He is a great soldier but they need a one man army.
Renee asks for predictions. Booker says Kevin will win. Sam says Kevin and Chris will walk out as Universal Champion.
