Raw General Manager Baron Corbin comes out with Bobby Lashley (with Lio Rush) and Drew McIntyre. He gloats over his assault of Braun Strowman and then shows video from Birmingham, Alabama, where Strowman awaits surgery. Strowman says his injuries will seem like paper-cuts compared to what he does to the 3 men in the ring when he gets back. Corbin reveals that Strowman won’t be medically cleared by TLC. Then he tells everyone to start calling him the “general manager-elect” because after TLC he’ll be permanent GM.

He warns everyone in the back that they will want to choose a side because he’ll remember he was for him, and who was against him. Suddenly, the lights go out and Elias appears on the main stage with a guitar strum. He says he couldn’t bear staying in the back listening to that tripe any longer. He starts cutting a promo on the heels in the ring before beginning a song to Lashley specifically. He sings the line “Bobby Lashley sucks” over and over and the crowd joins in. Then Elias and Lashley get set for a match.
