WWE Champion Brock Lesnar makes his way to the ring to a big
Video Package: SmackDown recap of Brock Lesnar chasing off The
Bloodline and destroying security guards with a chair.
Lesnar is bobbing his head to his music and wearing a cowboy hat.
Lesnar says, “Your WWE Champion is in the house.” For the last 20
years, that loudmouth Paul Heyman has been doing all the yapping for
him, but he has to do this. Lesnar shouts, “Ladies and gentlemen,
welcome to Monday Night Raw!” Lesnar says that felt good, but it
sounded like it sucked. He won’t do that again.
What he doesn’t suck at is handing out country ass whippings. This
Sunday at WrestleMania – he’s going to spoil his game plan for Roman
Reigns. This is a spoiler: they’re going to take a trip down memory
lane. They’re going to take a trip down the streets of Suplex City.
They’ll stop by Beast Broadway and hit the carnival. They’re gonna
go for a ride on the F5 and nobody survives that ride. The crowd
says, “What?” Lesnar says Steve Austin will be there as well. Austin
is an ass-kicker like him, but he never kicked Lesnar’s ass.
After the carnival, they’ll hit a wedding. They’re going to be
wedding crashers. His title will marry Reigns’s title. It’ll have a
baby in the Unified Title, and Lesnar will have full custody. The
crowd cheers. Lesnar is in a great mood. In six days at
WrestleMania, he finally gets his hands on Roman Reigns. There’s no
more running and nowhere to hide this Sunday. This Sunday at
WrestleMania, he’ll stand about Reigns with two titles, raise them
to the sky, and they will chant, “Ladies and gentlemen, your new
reigning, defending, unified heavyweight champion of the world,
Brock Lesnar!” Lesnar drops the microphone and walks off.

The Miz is in the ring. Miz is sure that Rey Mysterio has a fun
costume set up for WrestleMania. Mysterio has so many costumes and
masks, except for the one he stole from him last week. So many
people are telling him to give the mask back, but he doesn’t have
it. It belongs to the new greatest luchador of all time, Lucha
“Lucha” Logan Paul makes his way to the ring to boos from the crowd

he’d smash “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and like he’ll smash Brock
Reigns has done everything except beat The Beast at WrestleMania.
That pisses him off. A “Suplex City” chant picks up. Reigns says
what really bothers him about Brock Lesnar is just a couple of weeks
ago, he was out for blood. This was personal to him, but Lesnar has
already spilled his blood. In 2018 at WrestleMania 34, he busted his
head wide open. Reigns bled all over New Orleans. Lesnar smashed his
face to the point that his children didn’t recognize him, his wife
wanted him out of the business, his father doubted him, and his
family was ashamed. Now it’s just a game to Lesnar. The Tribal Chief
has changed the game. They’re going to take everything from Lesnar.
Reigns took his advocate and made him a wise man. Reigns became the
longest-reigning champion and spilled his blood at Madison Square
Garden. This Sunday, he’ll make his final move and take the title.

Reigns will make it personal. Reigns yells, “It’s always been
personal… to me!” Reigns calmly puts the microphone down and poses

Replays are shown of Kevin Owens trolling the Chicago crowd dressed
as “Stone Cold” Steve Austin last week on Raw.
We’ll take a look at the career of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin next.
Video Package: The incredible career of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin
Kevin Owens says nobody does video production better than WWE. That
wasn’t as good as his tribute to “Stone Cold” Steve Austin was last
week. That’s the Austin everyone remembers. Everyone is ecstatic
that “Stone Cold” is his guest on The KO Show at the main event of
WrestleMania Saturday. Last week wasn’t just a tribute for Austin,
but it was him doing everyone a favor. Owens dressed as Austin is
the closest they’ll ever get to the old “Stone Cold” they used to
admire. That “Stone Cold” has been gone for 19 years. What? 19
years! This is the Austin that has been drinking himself into
oblivion for 19 years now. He’s so bored on his stupid ranch that
he’s begging people to be on his stupid podcast to relive the old
days. That Austin still sounds like “Stone Cold.” We saw the heavily
edited video of Austin and he talked a big game. Austin is not
coming to WrestleMania to pick a fight with Kevin Owens. Austin
knows what would happen if he picked a fight with Owens. Austin is
going to have a nice conversation about his career. Owens is so
honored that he accepted the invitation that he’ll allow it. Austin
will have the biggest platform of his career and get the sendoff
Austin thinks he deserves.
Owens will even do something special. He hates beer, but he’ll drink
one with Austin. They’ll sit in the middle of the ring at AT&T
Stadium. They’ll toast to Austin finally and officially passing the
torch to Owens as the new “Stone Cold” and the true master of the
Stunner. Owens asks the crowd to give him a “Hell Yeah” if they
think his Stunner is better than Austin’s. The crowd boos. Owens
warns Austin that if he tries to pick a fight with him at
WrestleMania, he’ll take him down. Owens finishes by saying, “And
that’s the bottom line ’cause KO said so!”

Bianca Belair returns next.
The commentators talk about the retirement of Paul “Triple H”
Levesque following a very serious heart scare this past fall.
Bianca Belair makes her way to the ring. This is the first we’ve
seen her since Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch tried to crush her
throat two weeks ago. Belair says Lynch came out last week and
talked about all the things she’d do to keep the title around her
waist. Two weeks ago, she found out how low she’d go. Lynch was
threatened by her existence and tried to take her out. Lynch managed
to get her out for a week, but she’s back on Raw like she never
left. After all Lynch did, she’s still standing here. Lynch has
tried to do everything she could since SummerSlam to take her out,
but she’s still here.
What else does Lynch have? Absolutely nothing! There’s nothing Lynch
can do to stop her from taking the title. Belair is taking the title
and walking out as Raw Women’s Champion. There’s not a damn thing
Lynch can do about it.
Becky Lynch’s music hits, but she doesn’t come out. Belair turns
around and sees Lynch trying to blindside her with a chair. Belair
beats her down in the corner and goes for the chair, but Lynch pulls
her down by the hair. Lynch drives the chair into Lynch’s midsection
and smashes it on her back.
Lynch shouts that she said she was coming for her hair and takes a
pair of scissors out of a black bag! Lynch grabs the ponytail and
goes to cut it, but Belair fights up and hits a KOD! Belair picks
her up and hits a second KOD on the Raw Women’s Champion. Belair
then applies a body scissor and cuts Lynch’s hair! Belair continues
to cut the hair until WWE Officials and referees run in to break it
up. Belair picks up a handful of hair and happily walks away.
Lynch comes to in the ring and sees chunks of her hair all around
the ring. Lynch screams and rips at her hair before saying she’s
going to end Belair’s career at WrestleMania.
The commentators run down the WrestleMania Saturday card.

Replays are shown of Edge attacking AJ Styles with a chair last
Monday on Raw.
Edge is backstage. Last week on Raw, he had a choice to make. Does
he blast AJ Styles with a chair or let fate take its course? Edge is
taking fate into his own hands. It’s serendipity that it needed to
be Styles. They need each other. Edge pulled off the veil of
mediocrity to remind Styles that he’s great. Edge needed Styles to
become what he’s become. Edge is the benchmark of WWE. They’ve gone
to better places. Edge is soaring. For the last 20 years, they’ve
been running wild and blowing roofs off arenas. They’ll meet for the
first time in a match for the ages. Edge knows he’s living inside of
Styles’ head. This Sunday is Styles’ judgment day. Styles’ judgment
AJ Styles is seething backstage. Sarah Schreiber asks for a reaction
to Edge’s comments. Styles says Edge used a lot of words to justify
another cheap attack. A month ago, Edge hit him twice with a steel
chair. Since then, the music changed and his mood changed. It seems
to be done to get in his head. Mission accomplished. Edge wants the
pitbull, but he’ll get something worse than that. Edge wants to
destroy him, but the feeling is mutual. The judgment is in and
Styles will beat Edge in a match the WWE Universe will never forget
this Sunday at WrestleMania.
