A video kicks off the show, highlighting what happened at WWE
Elimination Chamber this past Saturday. Bianca Belair will face Raw
Women’s Champion Becky Lynch on the Raw side of things. Bobby
Lashley was injured early in the Elimination Chamber and was taken
out. Brock Lesnar became the new WWE Champion and will face WWE
Universal Champion Roman Reigns in a Winner Take All Match at
We go live into the Colonial Life Arena, and the Raw commentators
welcome us to the show.
WWE Champion Brock Lesnar comes out to a huge ovation. Lesnar
celebrates and poses all around ringside. Lesnar is dressed in full
cowboy gear. A “Suplex City” chant fires up. Lesnar says it is good
to be here and takes off his sweater. Lesnar gets another “Suplex
City” chant going. “Your new WWE Heavyweight Champion of the World
is in South Carolina,” Lesnar says.
“Ladies and gentlemen…”
Paul Heyman comes out to the stage laughing, and Lesnar does not
look happy. The Special Counsel to the WWE Universal Champion is
here. Lesnar warns Heyman not to come any closer to the ring. A “You
Suck” chant picks up toward Heyman. Heyman says, “The Special
Counsel for the Tribal Chief does not suck.” Speaking of which,
Heyman wants to say that he is the Special Counsel for the only real
Heavyweight Champion in WWE, the “Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns. Heyman
is not here to be disrespectful to Lesnar. Heyman is here out of
love for their 20-year friendship and partnership. Lesnar is so
myopic about his WrestleMania match where it’s title vs. title and
Winner Take All. There’s a roadblock in that farm boy’s way. Lesnar
may not make it to WrestleMania as the WWE Titleholder. For 20
years, Heyman took care of the small details for Lesnar. On
Saturday, March 5, Lesnar has to defend the WWE Championship at
Madison Square Garden. He won’t make it to WrestleMania as the WWE
Lesnar says he can still appreciate Heyman even though he’s such a
dick. Heyman wants to get something straight, but Lesnar cuts him
off. Lesnar thanks Heyman for telling him where he’s supposed to be
when he already knows it. Heyman asks if Lesnar knows he has to
defend the WWE Championship against Bobby Lashley. If Lashley
doesn’t pass concussion protocol, Heyman will take care of Lesnar
and give a title match worthy of the World’s Most Famous Arena.
Lesnar says he’s doing just fine without Paul Heyman. Lesnar says he
knows where Heyman is going to be on Friday night. He’ll be in a
ring in Hershey, Pennsylvania, standing next to his little tribal
chief demanding acknowledgment. Lesnar asks if Heyman knows where
he’s going to be on Friday night. Heyman asks if he’ll be in
Saskatchewan. Lesnar says he’ll be at SmackDown introducing them to
the new reigning, defending, undisputed WWE Heavyweight Champion of
the World, Brock Lesnar!
Seth “Freakin” Rollins and Kevin Owens are talking backstage when
they become irritated by the presence of Kevin Patrick. Patrick asks
them about their unclear path to WrestleMania. Owens says they have
a path. They are the best tag team on Raw. Owens says they beat
RK-Bro two weeks ago. Last week, Seth “Freakin” Rollins beat Randy
Orton. Owens says they went to management, and tonight when they win
the tag team match, they will be added to the Raw Tag Team
Championship in just two weeks. Rollins says that they’ll be Raw Tag
Team Champions when they win that match. Owens says the WrestleMania
possibilities will be endless. Maybe they’ll challenge The Usos in a
Winner Take All match at WrestleMania. Owens says WrestleMania will
be stupendous because of them. The idea of him going to WrestleMania
with his best friend is so good it’ll make it bearable that
WrestleMania is in that hellhole called Dallas, Texas.

The commentators talk about the big WrestleMania matches that are on
the books so far, including a Winner Take All match with WWE
Champion Brock Lesnar and WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
The Miz makes his entrance. He’ll host Miz TV next.
The Miz is in the ring for Miz TV. The Miz says the people wish they
could have his life and his wife, but they cannot. Since they cannot
be him, they look up to people more like them. That’s why they love
Rey Mysterio. Despite their physical differences, he’s not much
different from The Miz. Rey is everything they despise about him.
The people just choose not to see it. Miz says the people are the
ones that cannot be trusted. Miz says he’s found a new tag team
partner going into WrestleMania. This is someone he can relate to
and trust. This person comes from a fighting family. He’s a pioneer…
and very dashing. This person is an athlete and celebrity.
Rey Mysterio’s music hits, and he comes out to the stage alongside
his son, Dominik Mysterio. Rey says they are not the same. Rey
doesn’t know anyone in the back that would partner up with Miz.
Everyone in the locker room can’t stand The Miz. Whoever it is that
Miz brought here tonight, that person can go right back to where he
came from and give his moment at WrestleMania to someone who
deserves it. Miz says he knows what’s best for the industry. At
their match at Elimination Chamber, it was supposed to be
one-on-one, but it felt like a handicap match. Miz didn’t deserve to
lose, and Rey didn’t deserve that win. Speaking of people deserving
things, does Dominik even deserve a WWE contract? Dominik says his
father brought him into this business and sat front row many times.
Dominik knows what it takes to be a WWE Superstar. Rey brought him
here, but he’ll do whatever it takes to stay here. This is his
blood. This is his family. This is his life. This is everything that
he knows. If Miz says one more thing about his father, he’ll show
Miz asks if he’ll outnumber him and put him in another handicap
match. Miz challenges The Mysterios to a match at WrestleMania with
him and his mystery partner. Miz will now introduce his new tag team
partner… Logan Paul. Paul comes out to boos from the crowd. Paul
says he has pool toys bigger than Rey Mysterio. Dominik says if this
jackass is going to be Miz’s tag team partner at WrestleMania, they
Miz attacks Dominik, and Logan Paul takes down Rey. Miz and Paul
leave The Mysterios laying in the ring. They then send Rey
shoulder-first into the ring post. They then do the same to Dominik.
Miz hits Rey with a Skull Crushing Finale. Paul taunts the crowd,
and they loudly boo him. Paul then hits Dominik with a Skull
Crushing Finale. The crowd is irate.
Kevin Patrick is backstage with Raw Tag Team Champions Alpha
Academy. They are not happy that tonight’s main event could put
Kevin Owens and Seth “Freakin” Rollins into their title match in two
weeks. Their odds get lowered if that happens. They love to win, so
that’s what they’ll do in two weeks.
RK-Bro will face Seth “Freakin” Rollins and Kevin Owens in the main
event. If Rollins and Owens win, they’ll be added to the Raw Tag
Team Championship match in two weeks.

Priest knocks him off. Benjamin quickly knees Priest in the face and
hits an exploder for a near fall. Priest kicks Benjamin and hits
South of Heaven. The crowd is turning on Priest in this match.
Priest hits the Reckoning for the win.
Winner by Pinfall: WWE United States Champion Damian Priest
Priest gives credit to Shelton Benjamin for being a man and facing
him. Priest says he’s beaten athletes like Benjamin before. There’s
a list of World Champions he’s defeated. Priest has stepped up and
remained United States Champion. The crowd lightly boos him. Priest
says this is WrestleMania season, and he wants his next opponent to
match that caliber. Next week, Priest is volunteering his title in a
match against someone of a World Championship caliber. Priest says,
“I am Damian Priest, the United States Champion. Who’s going to try
to take that from him?” The crowd boos, and Priest drops the
Finn Bálor’s music hits, and he comes out to the stage. If Priest
wants to face a serious athlete, a serious fighter, and a World
Champion opponent, then he’s talking about him. Bálor tells Priest
to be careful what he wishes for. Bálor will see him next week.

Video Package: WWE Elimination Chamber highlights
Bianca Belair makes her way to the ring.
Bianca Belair will face Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship
Bianca Belair stands in the ring and listens to an “EST” chant. She
says she’s going back to WrestleMania. Last year, she made history
leaving WrestleMania as SmackDown Women’s Champion. This year, she’s
going to do it again to win the Raw Women’s Championship. They all
know how she feels about her opponent, Miss Becky Lynch. Belair
gives it up for all the women she faced this past Saturday. They’re
all tough women, especially Doudrop, who she’s facing tonight, but
there can only be one tough-EST. There is only one EST in WWE. She
is the hard-EST working woman in WWE. She has been working nonstop
just for this moment. So if you think she’s about to let up now, no
way. In just six weeks, she’ll show Becky Lynch why you can’t spell
WrestleMania without EST.
Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch makes her way to the ring. Lynch
says Belair may be facing her in the main event of WrestleMania, but
the only reason she’s able to do it is because she did it first.
Belair says she did it better. Lynch says she left WrestleMania 35
as Becky Two Belts. No one has been able to beat her for the title
in three years. She never lost it. She took the title from Belair in
26 seconds at SummerSlam. Belair says she actually listened to Lynch
because she went to the back of the line. Belair was the sole
survivor at Survivor Series and won Elimination Chamber. She’s not a
victim. Lynch says that she’s the victim. Lynch was The Man of the
people. Lynch came back at SummerSlam to a hero’s welcome, but they
turned on her because of Belair. Because they despise her, she
despises Belair. Belair saw what she did to Lita at Elimination
Chamber. Lita is someone she loves. Wait until she sees what she
does to Belair at WrestleMania. Belair says if she wants to play the
victim game, she’ll make her the victim.
Doudrop comes out to the ring. She’ll face Bianca Belair next.
WrestleMania is 40 days away.
Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch will be on commentary for this

slaps the midsection and bounces Belair off the corner. Belair
fights back and goes for a KOD, but she can’t lift Doudrop. Doudrop
goes to the ropes and head-butts Belair back. Belair responds by
knocking her to ringside with a handspring back kick. Belair then
hits a cross-body block off the apron before getting in Becky
Lynch’s face. Belair then turns into a running cross-body block from
We come back from the break to see Belair fight up. Belair hits a

Belair with the Raw Women’s Championship.
Coming up next, WWE Hall of Famer Edge will make an appearance.
Edge makes his way to the ring to a huge reception from the crowd.
Edge talks about being a kid and hearing about Hulk Hogan
bodyslamming Andre the Giant and beating him. Edge says he knows the
adrenaline that happens when you try to get on the show. His first
WrestleMania as a talent was WrestleMania 14. It took him two years
to get onto the show. Edge says he focused his career on always
getting back to it. Every year he’d have to outdo himself. At
WrestleMania 17 against two of the greatest tag teams of all time in
a TLC match on possibly the greatest show of all time, they stole
the show. Edge says he’s thinking about D-Von Dudley, who is
recovering from back surgery.
Edge says at WrestleMania 22, he put Mick Foley through a flaming
table. At WrestleMania 24, he faced The Undertaker in the main
event. Title vs. Streak and he almost did it. Edge congratulates
Undertaker on a Hall of Fame career. At WrestleMania 27, he had
possibly his last match and retained the World Heavyweight
Championship. Many people would think that’d be enough, but not him.
He busted his ass for 10 years to get back to WrestleMania. Last
year, he main evented WrestleMania once again. For 38 years,
WrestleMania has been the stuff of dreams. Some kids dream of the
Stanley Cup or performing on Broadway, but not him. Edge dreamed of
WrestleMania. Every year he dreams of it. Edge dreams of the energy
he gets from the crowd so he can be phenomenal. At WrestleMania,
Edge makes everyone and everything around him better. Edge steps up
to the challenge. At WrestleMania, you need to throw caution to the
win to fight your inner demon and become undeniable. Edge needs
They’re calling WrestleMania 38 the most stupendous two-night event
ever. You can’t call it stupendous without him. Edge says he’s
laying down a challenge for WrestleMania to anyone in the locker
room. Edge wants someone to step up and he’ll make them live
forever. Edge tells someone to step up because he’ll be waiting.
Edge looks at the WrestleMania sign before leaving the ring.
