RAW begins with Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie McMahon says as a Principal Owner of WWE, the one thing she can’t stand is gross negligence. Stephanie brings up Vickie Guerrero being unable to get her a good cup of coffee next week, then asks Vickie Guerrero to come out and face the consequences. Vickie Guerrero comes down to the ring.

Vickie Guerrero thinks it’s good to see Stephanie McMahon in better health, then snitches on Roman Reigns for messing up the coffee. Stephanie McMahon turns it around on Vickie Guerrero, and reminds her that Triple H gave her the specific direction to not put Roman Reigns in the Money In The Bank Qualifying Battle Royal, but she did it anyway and Reigns won. Stephanie puts the blame on Vickie Guerrero for Reigns’ victory, but Vickie assures it won’t happen again.

Stephanie McMahon tells Vickie Guerrero that for 9 years, she has been riding the coattails of her late husband, Eddie Guerrero. Stephanie tells Vickie that the McMahon Family took pity on her, and since they knew she couldn’t be a Diva, they made her a General Manager. After a loud Eddie Guerrero chant, Stephanie tells that Eddie may deserve the respect from the WWE Universe, but Vickie Guerrero doesn’t.

Stephanie McMahon is about to fire Vickie Guerrero, but Vickie begs Stephanie to keep her job. Stephanie makes her get on her knees in beg. After Vickie begs on her knees, Stephanie calls her pathetic and claims she can’t even beg right.

Vickie tells Stephanie that she’s not a competitor, and Stephanie gets ready to fire her again. Vickie interjects and accepts the match. Stephanie informs Vickie that her opponent is Stephanie but Vickie interjects. Vickie wonders who her opponent is Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie McMahon doesn’t think Vickie Guerrero is going to compete and almost fires her, but Vickie Guerrero tells Stephanie that the one name respected more than the McMahons is the “Guerreros.” Vickie tells Stephanie that Eddie taught her how to lie, cheat and steal, then accepts the match for tonight.
