Lashley says it's not the title that makes the man. It's the man that makes the title. Lashley says, "There's not another man in any division or any promotion that can beat me for this United States Championship".

Theory's music plays and Theory enters toting the Money in the Bank briefcase. Theory wants to know why Lashley gets to kick off "Raw". Theory says everyone has been waiting to hear from "Mr. Headline himself. Me!". Theory points out he's the youngest Mr. Money in the Bank in WWE history.

Miz says Paul is surrounded by "yes men" in his circle. Miz says that may work outside WWE but it won't work in WWE. Miz tells Paul to retract his statement and accept his offer to reunite as a tag team. Miz says if Paul doesn't accept he will be humbled.

Morant asks about Miz "quitting" his match against AJ Styles last week. Somehow this conversation gets back to the topic of Miz's "tiny balls". Miz says his balls are gigantic, super-sized.

Back in the arena, Styles makes his entrance. He'll face The Miz next. But first, we go to a commercial break.

Back from the break, we get a video from "earlier today". The Street Profits are hosting a 4th of July cookout. Riddle, Shelton Benjamin, and Doudrop are among the attendees.

Dawkins touts his hot dog eating skills. Otis steps up and it appears we're going to get a hot dog eating contest.

Natalya's music plays and she makes her entrance to interrupt Morgan. Natalya says Morgan should be thanking her and she's the only reason Morgan was able to cash in Money in the Bank. Natalya says she'd take a "thank you" but would rather take the "SmackDown" Women's Championship.
