Video Package: AJ Styles vs. The Undertaker
The Undertaker appears and calls AJ Styles by his real name: Allan
Jones. Styles has a big mouth. Undertaker doesn’t know if he has a
big set or he’s just really that stupid. Either way, his mouth is
writing checks his ass can’t cash. Styles probably thought that by
dropping pipe bombs, he’d get under his skin. Undertaker has heard a
lot worse from far better than Styles. There are some truths to what
Styles has been saying. Styles mentioned 10-15 years ago, he
probably wouldn’t want to try the Undertaker. You damn right! Styles
was content being a big fish in a little pond because he knew he
didn’t have what it took to hang with him, Stone Cold, The Rock,
Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kurt Angle, Mick Foley, Eddie Guerrero,
Booker T, and Edge… the very best the business had to offer. The
Phenomenal One… my ass. Styles waited until they were all gone
Undertaker has far more matches behind him than he has in front.
Allan has stepped in something there’s no coming back from. His
foolish pride made bad decisions for him. All the things he said, he
gets it. It’s business. Where he crossed the line was when he
mentioned his wife. Styles is mad his wife does the Faith Breaker
a.k.a. the Styles Clash and got it over. Styles will pay the
ultimate price for disrespecting his wife, Michelle McCool. He’ll
pay the price in a boneyard, Styles’ idea. Styles wants to be
relevant at the Showcase of the Immortals. Who better to make that
happen than The Undertaker? Try him. He’ll make Styles famous. He
hopes Styles brings those “ass clowns” Gallows and Anderson because
all three of them will feel the wrath of the unholy trinity he’s
bringing. They will get hurt and suffer. Most importantly they will
Rest… In… Peace. A graphic shows a gravestone with “AJ Styles:
1977-2020” behind The Undertaker.
Brock Lesnar will be live later tonight. We’ll also see Kevin Owens
and The Street Profits face Seth Rollins, Andrade, and Angel Garza.
Becky Lynch drove up in a semi with her decals all over it earlier
Footage is shown of Becky Lynch attacking Shayna Baszler last week
Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch makes her entrance and stays on the
stage. Lynch says last year she fought two champions in one match
last year at WrestleMania in the main event. Charlotte Flair was the
SmackDown Women’s Champion and Ronda Rousey was the Raw Women’s
Champion. She had all the pressure on her. She’s been walking the
razor blade ever since.
They replay the entire main event of WrestleMania 35 from last year.
Becky Lynch is still there after the end of the match. Lynch says
Shayna Baszler thinks she’s a killer and has the edge. Baszler
thinks taking this title from her would destroy her. It would. We
all get into this business because they have demons to slay. Lynch
doesn’t know who she is without being the champion. Baszler walks
around all cool with her low voice and cage fighter resume, but
she’s getting to her like all the rest she’s faced. Baszler wants to
do the one thing her buddy Ronda Rousey couldn’t: beat her. Baszler
thinks she’ll be seen as a world class athlete or she’ll lose and
get put back in Rousey’s shadow. When Baszler talks about someone
being destroyed at WrestleMania, which one is she talking about.
All of a sudden, Baszler attacks her from behind and applies the
Kirifuda Clutch. Baszler then slams her face off the commentary
table. Baszler lifts her up and slams her into the side of the
commentary table. Baszler picks up the Raw Women’s Championship and
throws it on Lynch.
Aleister Black vs. Jason Cade
Black quickly sweeps the feet and calmly sits in the center of the
ring. Cade doesn’t know what Black is doing. Black blocks a kick,
but Cade comes back with an enzuigiri. Black kicks away the hand and
connects with Black Mass for the win.
Winner by Pinfall: Aleister Black
Footage is shown of Seth Rollins saying there is no Kevin Owens
without him last week on Raw.
Kevin Owens teams with The Street Profits to take on Seth Rollins,
Andrade, and Angel Garza.
Angel Garza comes out with Zelina Vega. Vega says she has
unfortunate news. Andrade has suffered a serious injury to his ribs
and is medically unable to compete. However, she has access to the
hottest young talent here in WWE. Just like she brought in Angel
Garza, she’s bringing in the hottest free agent: Austin Theory.
The Street Profits and Kevin Owens vs. Angel Garza, Austin Theory,
and Seth Rollins w/ Zelina Vega
It’ll be Kevin Owens starting against Seth Rollins, but Rollins
quickly tags in Austin Theory. Owens punches Theory down and chops
the chest. Owens punches him in the corner before backing up. Owens
taunts Rollins and tags in Angelo Dawkins. Dawkins quickly tags in
Montez Ford. Dawkins shoulder blocks Theory down before flipping
Ford onto him. Angel Garza runs in, so the Street Profits hit him
with a double-team flapjack onto Theory. Ford then wipes Garza and
Theory out with a summersault plancha.
We come back from the break to see Ford get away from Garza, but
Garza soon dropkicks him down and rips his pants off. Theory tags in
and takes Ford down for a near fall. Theory applies a chin lock and
knees Ford. Ford throws Theory to the apron, but he lands on his
feet. Theory hits a rolling thunder into a dropkick for a near fall.
Theory forearms Ford down and clubs the back a few times. Theory
goes for a back suplex, but Ford flips through.
Dawkins tags in and shoulder blocks Theory before knocking Rollins
and Garza off the apron. Dawkins hits Theory with an exploder
suplex. Rollins blind tags in. Dawkins splashes Theory in the corner
and goes for a bulldog, but Theory throws him over the top rope.
Dawkins quickly shoulder blocks Garza before getting in the ring and
turning Theory inside out with a shoulder block. Rollins then
superkicks Dawkins. Owens smiles at Rollins and tells Dawkins to get
to him and make the tag. Rollins stomps Dawkins and punches him
down. Rollins chokes Dawkins on the ropes until the referee
admonishes him. Garza kicks Dawkins in the face. Theory tags in and
stomps Dawkins before punching him. Garza tags in and attacks
Dawkins before jumping on the back for a two count. Rollins tags in
and kicks Dawkins in the ribs. Rollins hits a snapmare and kicks him
in the spine. Rollins applies a chin lock and elbows the face.
Rollins applies a chin lock before transitioning to a front
facelock. Dawkins punches out, but Rollins knees him and punches
Ford off the apron. Owens taunts Rollins. Dawkins rolls Rollins up
for a two count. Rollins quickly hits a Sling Blade and punches away
at Dawkins. Dawkins blocks a superkick and punches Rollins down.
Owens tags in, and Rollins quickly scurries to his corner and tags
Garza in. Owens chops Garza and sends him into the ropes, but he
lowers his head and eats a kick. Owens quickly clotheslines him down
and hits a senton splash. Owens hits a cannonball in the corner and
goes to the top rope. Owens hits a senton bomb, but Theory breaks up
the pin. Ford quickly hits Theory with an enzuigiri. Ford goes for a
summersault plancha on Theory, but misses and slams hard on the
ramp! It looks like Ford miscalculated where Theory was. In the
ring, Owens hits Garza with a Stunner for the win.
Winners by Pinfall: The Street Profits and Kevin Owens
Rollins immediately hits Owens with a Stomp as soon as the referee
counts three. Rollins then walks off.
WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will be out later tonight.
We take a look at the trailer for “The Big Show Show.”
Kevin Owens is still in the ring. Seth Rollins may have kicked some
sense into him. Owens thought a lot about what Rollins said last
week and he has something to say. Last Monday, Rollins walked around
this place and said this building was built because of him. Everyone
that comes through this place should be thankful to Rollins. Owens
says he’s heard otherwise. This place was built in spite of Rollins.
Rollins was a nightmare to deal with the minute he stepped foot in
that warehouse in Tampa. No one could stand Rollins. He knew
everything about everything. Rollins proved everyone right when
people said he is “an arrogant dipshit.”
Owens is not delusional like Rollins. Rollins proved him right last
week. Rollins talked about all his WrestleMania moments and said
he’s a god. Rollins said Owens is a disappointment. Those words
stayed with him. While Owens may not have all the WrestleMania
moments Rollins does, he can claim the same accolades. He’s been the
Intercontinental Champion, United States Champion, and was Universal
Champion well before Rollins. Those WrestleMania moments and
accomplishments he got weren’t done on his own. Owens had someone
watching his back with him one way or the other. So did Rollins.
None of those WrestleMania moments Rollins has weren’t accomplished
alone. Rollins always had backup or found an underhanded way to get
them. Rollins needs to be honest with himself. The only thing
Rollins said that made sense is everything someone accomplished
doesn’t matter when you get here. On Saturday when they get in the
ring at WrestleMania, their pasts don’t matter. All that matters is
they’re going one-on-one. This Saturday night, he’ll show that
Rollins is not a prophet, messiah, or a god when he pins him in the
ring and takes his first WrestleMania moment from Rollins. This
Saturday, Owens will be the one to burn it down.
dge will be out, next.
Video Package: Edge vs. Randy Orton – Last Man Standing
Edge is shown backstage. Edge mentions that Randy Orton said Adam
Copeland is a junkie for Edge. Orton is probably right. It’s not
about ego. Edge just loves the feeling that happens in the arena.
That explosion when his music hits, that connection he has from the
audience. He’s one of them. He came from them. They’re all junkies
for this. As a 13 year old kid sitting in the 11th row for Hulk
Hogan vs. The Ultimate Warrior… if you’re not a junkie for this,
you’re taking up space and in his way.
They have different definitions of the word “grit.” To Orton, grit
means being handpicked for Evolution and resting on the laurels and
coasting on his family name with spurts of magic for 20 years, ok
with being ok. Ok for Orton is better than most, but to him grit is
the type of man that will reach down into the hole and pull somebody
out that probably doesn’t deserve it. Grit is refusing to be in
Evolution because he doesn’t want to be someone’s lackey. Grit is
forging your own Hall of Fame career. To him grit is thinking about
how to get back here everyday for 9 years and end this on his own
terms. Edge said that Orton is jealous of him, but he’s not. Orton
is jealous of Edge’s passion. You can’t fabricate passion. He has it
and Orton doesn’t. The only time Orton has passion is when he’s
around. Edge lights a fire under him and everyone sees it but Orton.
Everyone is saying this is the best Orton has ever been. The last
time Orton tried this hard was 9 years ago. That must scare Orton.
Edge inspires passion and that scares Orton. Orton is a junkie for
the way Edge makes him feel.
Those voices in Orton’s head made him make a terrible mistake. Orton
attacked his pack and almost had him believing the Royal Rumble was
enough closure for him, but then he put his hands on his wife and
uttered the names of his little girls to pull him back in. Orton
accepted a Last Man Standing match with him, a man who will dive
face-first into a flaming table with thumbtacks in his body just to
grab the torch Orton took for granted. Orton dug himself another
hole. This time, he’s not pulling him back out. He’ll push Orton so
far in that he’ll never get back out. Edge looks psychotic as he
Asuka will be live, next.
Asuka vs. Kayden Carter
Asuka shouts in Japanese and peaks the microphones before shouting,
“Who are you?” No one is ready for Asuka!
The bell rings, and Carter dropkicks her into the ropes. Carter
punches away at Asuka, but Asuka soon hits a butt bump. Asuka kicks
Carter in the head, but Carter blocks a kick. Asuka goes for a
takedown, but Carter rolls her up for a two count. Carter quickly
follows up with a dropkick for a near fall. Asuka blocks a kick and
picks the ankle before hitting a German Suplex. Asuka viciously
kicks her in the head before applying the Asuka Lock for the
Winner by Submission: Asuka
Asuka goes to the commentary table and shouts for Alexa Bliss. Asuka
dances around and screams in Japanese.
WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will be out later tonight.
NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley is shown arriving to the
Performance Center when Charlotte Flair kicks her in the back,
sending her face-first into a garage door. Officials run up to keep
Flair back. Flair says, “Hey rookie, I’ll see you at WrestleMania!
WOO!” Flair walks off. Ripley gets to her feet and says, “Yeah… yeah
They’re replaying Rey Mysterio vs. Brock Lesnar from Survivor Series
The commentators run down the WrestleMania card.
WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are already in the ring.
Heyman introduces himself and says he’d hate to pull the curtain
back on the wrestling industry. Heyman believes in the magic of WWE.
Heyman loves being in a business where we take larger than life
individuals and promote them to a global audience. This is the final
segment on the final Raw before WrestleMania. This is the most
unique WrestleMania of our lifetimes not just because it’s too big
for one night. This is the most unique time we’ll ever experience.
They call this the go home segment of the show on the go home show.
Why is the champion Brock Lesnar in the ring on this segment every
year? Lesnar is the beast to slay, the one to conquer, the one to
beat on the single biggest show of the year. This year, Drew
McIntyre has truly stepped up. Heyman gives his compliments to him.
McIntyre is that special. Compared to the guy on the street,
McIntyre is that special. Compared to that dumbass in the gym that
thinks he can do WWE stuff — they can’t — McIntyre is special.
Compared to the locker room, the most extraordinary roster in
history, McIntyre is special. You know who else was special? The
Rock who got laid out and beaten for the title by Lesnar. Hulk Hogan
was also special, but his blood was rubbed on Lesnar’s chest. Randy
Couture, John Cena, The Undertaker were all special and icons that
stood above all the other icons. At the end of the day when they got
in the ring against a once ever athlete like Lesnar, they ended up
like everyone else: not so god damn special and just Brock’s bitch.
Heyman says Drew McIntyre doesn’t need him to promote how good the
Claymore Kick is. So was the Rock Bottom, Hulk Hogan’s Leg Drop,
Randy Couture and Shane Carwin’s knockout punches, Cena’s Attitude
Adjustment, and Undertaker’s Chokeslam and Tombstone, but not on the
day they stepped in with Lesnar. It truly mattered after the bell
rang. Now that Lesnar knows the Claymore Kick is coming, he’s either
mastered a strategy to avoid it or he’ll eat it and see if it can
take him down. Heyman has something. It’s more than a prediction or
a spoiler. It’s an absolute guarantee. Next year on the go home
segment on the go home Raw before WrestleMania, you know who will be
standing here? Brock Lesnar with the title over his shoulder. Heyman
will be talking about how McIntyre had a great story to tell, but he
got beaten fugly at the 2020 WrestleMania by the reigning,
defending, undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion. McIntyre will
walk in special and leave just like everybody else: nothing more
than Brock’s bitch.
