“Then. Now. Forever. Together.” The WWE video leads us into the
A video highlights the events of both nights of WrestleMania 39 on
Saturday and Sunday.
“It’s time to play The Game.”
WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque makes his way to
the ring to a huge ovation! The crowd is fired up, as is Triple H.
Triple H shouts, “Welcome to Monday Night Raw!” If he wasn’t already
on a high from this weekend, he sure is now. That reaction was
unbelievable. Triple H says it was quite the weekend. 161,000 fans
jam-packed into SoFi Stadium for the ultimate spectacle of an event
that truly lived up to its name: the Grandest Stage of the All. It
was an event 40 years in the making. From one man’s vision for
WrestleMania at Madison Square Garden to four decades later in LA at
SoFi Stadium, packed to the rafters, and beyond his wildest
Triple H is out here to say, “Thank you.” Triple H thanks every
superstar in the back and every performer that has ever come through
these ropes and graced this ring. They lay their bodies on the line
every week. Triple H thanks them. Triple H also wants to take a
moment to say “thank you” to the staff and crew that make an event
like WrestleMania possible and even Monday Night Raw possible. Every
member of the crew, including Stu on camera, Triple H thanks. The
crowd chants for Stu, and Stu waves back.
Triple H says the people behind the scenes make this possible. He
walked into SoFi Stadium. No matter how many times he has seen the
drawings and photos of it being built, when he actually saw that
set, it took his breath away. They make the spectacle of what they
do possible. Triple H wants to take one more moment to thank the
most important people: the WWE Universe. The fans are the people
that make it possible for them to do what they do day in and day
out. Triple H thanks the fans.
A “Triple H” chant picks up. On a day when WWE is dominating the
news and social media, the day after WrestleMania when they are
water cooler talk and all anyone wants to talk about, WWE makes an
announcement that is all everyone wants to talk about. Triple H
says, “I am here to assure you that we ain’t going nowhere! The same
WWE that you love, the same WWE that put 161,000 people to the
rafters in SoFi Stadium, is going nowhere! The same WWE that you
love… the superstars, the action, the drama, all of it… we are going
nowhere! We will be here week in and week out, event after event,
sold-out arena after sold-out arena, packed stadium after packed
stadium, because we are the WWE!” The crowd loudly roars. Just like
it says in the beginning: Then, now, forever… TOGETHER! The crowd
gives Triple H a great ovation.
With that said, Triple H wants to ask for one thing: please help him
acknowledge one more person. 946 days… the crowd is booing. Triple H
introduces the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns!
Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns makes his way to the
ring and shakes hands with Triple H. “The Wise Man” Paul Heyman and
“The Enforcer” Solo Sikoa stand at his side. Reigns poses as
pyrotechnics go off. The crowd is loudly booing him. Reigns stands
around and says nothing. A loud “Roman sucks” chant picks up. Reigns
has a cut on his forehead from his war in the main event of
WrestleMania last night against “The American Nightmare” Cody
Reigns says, “I guess after last night’s performance, we should
probably do it like this tonight. Hollywood… acknowledge me!”
“Wrestling has more than one royal family.”
“The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes makes his way to the ring to a
huge ovation. Rhodes came up short of finishing the story against
Roman Reigns last night at WrestleMania. Rhodes gets in the ring and
stares at the man who beat him the night before and crushed his
dream. A “Cody” chant picks up. Rhodes says he knows what he wants
to talk about. Today is turning out a lot differently for him than
he anticipated. Rhodes thought he would be standing here as the
Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. Rhodes can see he doesn’t have
it. Rhodes will acknowledge this: last night in the main event of
WrestleMania 39, Reigns was the better competitor. Reigns smirks.
Rhodes says we always have to do this with the world watching, but
he wishes the interference wasn’t a factor. Rhodes knows that Reigns
knows he has won matches that he narrowly skated by. Last night
wasn’t the case. Last night, Rhodes had him. Reigns shakes his head.
Rhodes says he knew what he wanted to talk about… it boils down to
just one word: rematch!
Paul Heyman comes up to Reigns and asks for the microphone. Reigns
gives it to The Wise Man. Heyman says he was thinking, on behalf of
The Tribal Chief, when exactly would Rhodes like this hypothetical
rematch. Rhodes laughs and then says, “Tonight!” The crowd explodes!
Reigns sneers and looks at Rhodes. Heyman says, “No rematch!” Heyman
says not tonight, not in Puerto Rico, not at SummerSlam, not at
Survivor Series, not at the Royal Rumble, not at Madison Square
Garden, not in San Francisco where life does exist in California.
The crowd is not happy. Heyman says that’s called “calling the
shots” because you live on the Island of Relevancy.
Rhodes asks “Mr. Heyman” if he thinks he’s in a normal mood for the
games and chicanery. After everything he went through in his entire
career for last night to happen to him. Rhodes says it’s time to cut
to the chase: Reigns doesn’t want to do the rematch and give the
people what they want. Since he had to face all of them anyway,
Rhodes suggests a tag team match so they can do something. Heyman
consults with The Tribal Chief. Heyman says the challenge has been
accepted. There are two parameters: if someone is stupid enough in
the locker room to team with him, they have to have competed at
WrestleMania this past weekend. Also, if they lose to Reigns and
Sikoa, they can never compete for the Undisputed WWE Universal
Championship as long as Reigns holds the title!
Brock Lesnar’s music hits! Lesnar comes out to a HUGE ovation.
Lesnar is already banned from going for the title since he lost to
Reigns at SummerSlam last year. The stipulation doesn’t impact him.
Lesnar gets in the ring and shakes hands with Rhodes! Reigns looks
disgusted and leaves the ring. Heyman looks stunned. Lesnar and
Rhodes celebrate in the ring.
Highlights are shown from WrestleMania weekend.

We go backstage to see The Usos walking backstage. They knock on
Roman Reigns’s door. Paul Heyman comes out and greets them. They
want to talk to Reigns, but Heyman says he stepped out with Solo
Sikoa. They’re strategizing about Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes.
Heyman says Reigns wants them to know that the weekend was good for
some. Heyman says the jet is fired up and there is fresh seafood.
The Usos pat Heyman on the shoulder a little roughly and walk off.
Heyman reenters the locker room and is heard saying, “I took care of

and Theory beat a legend, the greatest of all time John Cena.
Mysterio is too busy trying to correct the past. Theory is cut off
by a “You tapped out” chant. Theory did tap out to Cena while the
referee was done. Theory says they tapped out because they didn’t
believe in him.
Theory gets in the ring. Mysterio’s son didn’t believe in him, and
the people didn’t believe in Theory. The crowd is upset. Theory says
that was what Cena was talking about with the Raw after WrestleMania
where the people were supposed to eat him alive. Where is it? Theory
is on top of the world and can’t be touched. A “You still suck”
chant picks up. Theory says he doesn’t suck because he beat John
Cena. A “Cena” chant picks up. Theory says Cena isn’t here and is a
part-timer. Mysterio is just like Cena. They should be chanting his
name at the top of their lungs. A “Rey” chant picks up. All that’s
going to happen is Theory is going to beat Mysterio and add him to
the collection. Mysterio says the only thing Theory will be
collecting is his teeth after he hits him with the 619!

says it’s been a pretty crazy year for him. From last year’s
WrestleMania against Johnny Knoxville all the way to the main event
of WrestleMania right here in Los Angeles. Zayn says what he’s going
to say is corny, but he has to say it. None of this would have
happened for him if not for the fans, so he thanks them.

Owens says that sounds pretty good. Owens says he hopes Zayn has the
same celebration in mind. There’s nothing like a good fight. There’s
nothing like being in Los Angeles and fighting your heart out. A lot
