Our five point preview:
1. If you had trouble using the Raw thread last night, sorry about that. Hit the wrong button on the back end. You shouldn’t have any problems tonight.
2. This is another pre-tape from London, so if you’d like to read the full spoilers ahead of time, you can do that here.
3. Styles and Nakamura continue their weird quest to have a truly good match in WWE, which apparently includes wrestling each other to see how they’ll wrestle each other later.
4. Lots of Money in the Bank qualifiers again tonight as well, and a pair of qualifiers announced for next week.
5. Big Cass continues to be a thing. This is its own preview point.
