- Above is new backstage video of Acting RAW General Manager Baron Corbin talking to Mike Rome after his cheap win over Finn Balor on this week's show.

- RAW Superstars Bobby Roode and Mojo Rawley missed Monday's show in Toronto because they were working the SmackDown live event in Roode's hometown of Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. Roode defeated Mojo in the opener of that show. Below are Roode's pre-show comments and Mojo's post-show comments:
A lot of "firsts" over my 20yr career. Tonight is another one. Being able to perform in my hometown and in an arena where I went with my parents to watch the matches when I was a kid. Looking forward to what will be a #Glorious evening. @PtboMemCentre @WWE— Bobby Roode (@REALBobbyRoode) August 27, 2018
I will not be at @WWE #Raw tonite. I decided instead to go kick the crap out of @realbobbyroode in his first ever match in his hometown in front of his family. @realpaigewwe & #SDLive were thrilled to have me. Try to enjoy Raw without me.
