Report by Zack Krasney of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Zack Krasney and I am the advocate for Wrestling News World. I've always wanted to do that. I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day! Don't forget today is discounted chocolate day! Tonight is the last stop before Fast Lane!
Question of the Week: Who would you most like to win the triple threat main event at Fast Lane?
Monday Night Raw
Ambrose starts the show off tonight!
Dean- This Sunday at Fast Lane I am in for the fight of my life, they are calling it brother vs brother vs beast. Ambrose vs Reigns vs Brock Lesnar! That's on Sunday, but this is Monday Night Raw. I learned as a kid when the biggest bully comes after you, you gotta get your fingernails dirty. I got me a piece last week. I got a feeling the Beast is angry, he's out for revenge! Before I came out here and it said that an F5 might touch down. So Brock Lesnar, if you're in the building, why don't you come get another piece!
We don't get Brock, but instead Stephanie McMahon.
Steph- Was I not what you were expecting? Dean, I'm sorry are you out here filibustering because of your lack of performance last week. Not only could you not get the job done last night, but it required Roman Reigns coming out to save you. We will find out this Sunday where you have the opportunity to prove yourself.
Dean- Yeah Steph, I get how this whole thing works. Could we get to the fighting part? I'm starting to cool down.
Steph- We're gonna get to that, this is Monday Night Raw after all. You said you want an F5!? Does everyone here want to see Dean get an F5?! Not exactly the reaction you'd expect to want but if you want it you're gonna get it! Just not in the way you think. Because tonight F5 stands for fatal 5 way. That's right you're going to compete in a fatal 5 way for the Intercontinental Championship. Good luck. Oh Dean one more thing, if your bro Roman Reigns decides to get involved in your match tonight, you'll be disqualified! Oh and you won't be competing in your match at Fast Lane. So what will your bro do? Save his friend from a sure beat down, spare him losing his Intercontinental Championship, and make his match easier at Fast Lane? That seems like a win-win for Roman.
Dean Ambrose vs. Kevin Owens vs. Stardust vs. Tyler Breeze vs. Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Championship in a Fatal 5 Way
We start the match with heels going after faces. Stardust and Breeze team up against Ambrose. Ambrose throws Breeze out of the ring and then puts Stardust in the corner.

Dean goes to do a suicide dive but Dolph Ziggler hits a superkick out of the blue! Jumping elbow and 2 count. Ambrose sends Ziggler out of the ring but Stardust runs in and hits a fallaway slam. Breeze gets in too and takes out Stardust. Owens blasts Breeze then Powerbombs him over the ropes onto Stardust and Dolph. Ambrose sneak attacks Owens but KO turns it into a Pop-Up Powerbomb, but Ambrose blocks it. Dean goes to the top rope and hits a flying elbow to Owens.

Breeze goes for the Unprettier but Ambrose reverses and sends Breeze out of the ring. Ambrose with the lunatic clothesline and goes for Dirty Deeds but Ziggler hits the ZigZag! Breeze breaks it up, but then Owens hits the Pop-Up Powerbomb on Tyler! 1-2-3! Owens get the win!
Winner and NEW Intercontinental Champion: Kevin Owens
Backstage Ambrose is clearly upset when Renee walks up.
Renee- Dean you must still be in shock after what just happened.
Ambrose- Nothing the Authority does shocks me anymore. Angry? Frustrated? Yeah that doesn't even begin to cover it, but that title is gone I'm going to have to accept it. A wise man once said when the world takes something from you it leaves your hands open to bigger and better things. Gandhi? Gallagher? I don't know. They've given me things over and over, they've given me motivation, given me anger to go on to win the main event at Fast Lane and go on to BEAT Triple H at WrestleMania.
Owens walks up- I told everyone that this is MY Intercontinental Championship. Didn't I tell you? Why don't you give me some well-deserved recognition? I said I'd take this title back from Dean Ambrose. Tell the world! Tell em!
Ziggler walks up so clapping- Congratulations.
Owens- Thanks, now if you could get out of my face because this really isn't about you.
Ziggler- This Sunday is Fast Lane, and you need an opponent. And I have made a habit out of beating you in the last two weeks. So why don't you tell the world that I deserve to be that opponent, the very first.
AWWWWWWWWWWW DON'T YOU DARE BE SOUR!!!!
Big E- The last time Edge and Christian stepped to your boys, they totally reeked of booty!
Woods- They broke rule number 1, you don't bring a kazoo to a trombone fight! What are you gonna bring next? A piccolo? I got one! An electric jug. They'll probably go old school and bring a recorder.
E- Like a tape recorder?
Woods- No like..in 3rd grade. It's a little flute thing.
E-Oh like this *makes flute noise*
Woods- Yeah perfect!
E- Ok ok ok. That was actually the worst thing that happened to music since Coldplay performed at the half time show at the biggest football game of the year! The--
Kofi- NO NO NO Copyright bro.
Woods- Your boys the WWE World Heavyweight Champions will be the guests on the Peep Show and it'll be the greatest in history.
E- Now for Mark Henry, that Mark asked busta! Walked out on the New Day last week.
Kofi- You walked out on something special, you could've been the World Strongest Unicorn, instead you chose to be the World's Biggest Bootyhole!

Henry slides out but he appears to be legitimately hurt. Big E pins Henry for the win.
Winner: Big E
Byron is in the ring and introduces Brie Bella. Brie leads a Yes chant.
Byron- How is Daniel doing?
Brie- You know last week was hard for Daniel, but from all the love he received he turned something bad into a positive--*Charlotte's music cuts her off*
Charlotte- Brie. Brie I really don't mean to ruin this moment for you. I was blown away by Daniel's retirement speech last week, and I think I speak for everyone when I say there will never be another superstar like Daniel Bryan. He was in a league in of his own.
Brie- Is. He IS in a league of his own.
Charlotte- I don't know what I was thinking, it's not like he died or something.
Brie- No he didn't he's very much alive and ready to start the next chapter of his life.
Charlotte- Exactly, and you have to live every moment like it's your last! That's why Brie I understand if you need to forfeit Fast Lane.
Brie- Why would I do that?
Charlotte- Well MOST women would want to be at home with their husband. I mean Daniel lost everything. His childhood dream, his career. I kind of think it's selfish, but who am I to judge your marriage.
Brie- That's right, who are you to judge, and I don't need to give you any reasons, but Daniel supports me 100%.
Charlotte- You mean you support Daniel 100%! Oh that's why you're here! You and Daniel need the money.
Brie- Wow, wow, wow. What was it a few weeks ago you claimed you injured my sister, now you have enough nerve to attack Daniel.
Charlotte- You all have been listening! Did I attack Daniel? No I made a sympathetic gesture Brie. You need to go home, help Nikki with her physical therapy. Open a B&B with Daniel. Be the good wife and sister I know you are. I don't need you, they certainly don't need you. You know who do? Your husband and your sister. You know what I think Charlotte
Brie- You know what I think Charlotte? You are scared and throwing Daniel and Nikki in my face because I am not an easy beat. Let me tell you something, you just added fuel to this fire. I'm standing here in disgust seeing the champion you have become.
Charlotte- I hope you remember this moment, where I gave you the chance to walk away. I can only imagine what your goat faced, vegan babies are going to look like!
Brie had enough and attacks Charlotte with forearms then kicks. Charlotte runs away as fast as she can get away.

Jericho grabs a mic- Wow! I gotta tell you Styles--
AJ- Hey hey hey! Stop stop, I know why you're out here, I know you're games. You got your win last week, but it's eating you up inside, the great Chris Jericho was beaten by me in his first WWE match. So let me do you a favor Chris, let me make a challenge that you want anyway! Match #3 AJ Styles vs. Chris Jericho at Fast Lane.
Jericho- Wow....I gotta tell you AJ that is a phenomenal idea, it really is. It sounds like they want it again. But I'm not sure if I want to wrestle you again. I'll think about it and let you know Thursday on Smackdown. See ya buddy.
The Dudley Boyz make their way to the ring, on the way they grab a table.
Bubba- Hey, D-Von, they thought we were gonna get the tables. There are two guys in the locker room who we think should be out here. We think they're going to want to hear what we have to say. So Usos get out here. Oh wait a minute, they're probably not going to be able to make it because of this. *footage from last week rolls*
D-Von- The Usos are just like you people, you thought that after being gone for 10 years that it would be the good ole Dudley Boyz. That we'd be some nostalgia act. We are not on some Guns N Roses farewell tour. We are, like it or not, the baddest tag team on the planet.
Bubba- Oh and for those who didn't watch Smackdown, I hate to be the barrier of bad news but the tables are gone forever. Now on the bright side, you guys can go on the WWE Network and pull up the best of the Dudley Boyz and see all of the teams we've defeated. We are 9 time WWE Tag Team Champions. That is how our legacy will be defined, not by a piece of furniture. As for you people chanting "We want tables" all of those chants are going to fall on deaf ears. In fact we don't give a damn what you chant.
D-Von- Oh my Brother! Oh testify!

Summer pushes Paige and then rolls her up. Arm drag by Summer Rae. Paige kicks Summer in the gut and then trips her. High knee by Paige, and then a hip toss.

Paul Heyman is in the ring.
Paul- Ladies and Gentlemen my name is Paul Heyman and I am the advocate for the next undisputed WWE Heavyweight Champion of the world, Brock Lesnar. I say that with an awful lot of confidence because this Sunday night the WWE Network will offer you coverage of a most historic match. Dean Ambrose vs Brock Lesnar vs Roman Roman. From that match one beast will emerge victorious. He will go on to take on Triple H in the main event of WrestleMania and win the championship. I don't want to continue this, having Roman Reigns watch me on a monitor. What I want to say, I want to say eye to eye, man to man. So Mr. Samoan Badass, please get out here so we can speak face to face.
Roman comes through the crowd as usual and gets in the ring with Heyman.
Paul- I want to thank you sir *shakes Roman's hand* for allowing me to say this to your face. If I didn't there are those that would think I was being disrespectful. I would hope after all that's happened between us that you know I have the utmost respect for you. That being said this Sunday night you know that I feel, that you can't by my beast Brock Lesnar. Not you, not Dean Ambrose, not the two of you combined on Brock Lesnar, but that brings me to my point. your goal, your desire, is that you do win this Sunday and go on to fight Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, you win the championship and you go home to your wife and beautiful daughter and you say Daddy did it! Admittedly Brock Lesnar stands in your way, but this Sunday you have an equally huge problem because Dean Ambrose also stands in your way. This Sunday you have a choice to make, your daughter or your best friend. You can't keep your promise to your daughter and your friendship with Dean Ambrose. There are those in this business who choose friendship over their family and those are the ones who end up in divorce court. There are also those that choose family over friendship, those guys sit alone backstage but they stand in the center of the ring with the World Championship. That's the life we live for the championship you want! This Sunday Brock Lesnar stands in your way, but the enemy of my enemy is not also your friend. Brock Lesnar is your enemy this Sunday, but so is Dean Ambrose.
Roman- You're good, he's good. Thank you. Thank you for that, thank you. That was refreshing. No one does that anymore. No one says something to a man's face anymore. And you made good points. Paul, I made a choice a long time ago and I'm willing to pay the price and Dean Ambrose is willing to do the same. That's why we have no problems fighting, we've done it before we'll do it again. I beat him, it was the toughest thing I've ever done. Your client, though, I haven't beaten him. I've beaten his ass, but I haven't beaten him. You hit it right on the head Paul, I have everything on the line. I'm going to win, somehow, and I'm going to beat Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. And now I know that you believe that. *shake's Paul's hand*
Paul leaves the ring but the Dudleyz come out of nowhere and attack Roman. Dean Ambrose runs out and makes the save, together Roman and Dean manage to clear the ring. Roman and Dean bump fists but then Ambrose tries to lock in Dirty Deeds on Roman! Reigns fights out of it and stares at Ambrose. Roman gets a smirk on his face and they bump fists again.

Heath throws Zack into the corner and then rolls out for a victory lap. When he gets back in Zack hits a dropkick. Zack hits a clothesline then puts Slater in the corner. High knees by Ryder and then a missile dropkick. Running forearm from Zack and then hits the Broski Boot! 2 count. Slater rolls out but Zack flips over the top rope and take out the Social Outcasts! Bo up on the side causes the distraction which allows Heath to hit the heel kick for the win.
Winner: Heath Slater

Winners: League of Nations
Backstage Alberto gets interviewed by Renee. She asks if this will build momentum into his championship match Sunday.
ADR- This proves that Kalisto is a fluke. He is champion because I let him. You need more than luck to be a champion. That's why if he wants to prove he's more than a little mosquito he will accept my challenge to make our match a 2/3 falls match so I can squash him not once, but twice.

My family speaks the truth, freedom awaits all of you inside my embrace. Freedom from the future of a dying world because this world, our world, is a slave. She is shackled but painted with pretty colors. She tweets out her status so that her people may feel her shame. Be honest, how many times have each and every one of you checked your phone tonight to see if your followers feel your pain. My followers would walk through the fires of the Apocalypse with me. Together we will destroy, dismantle, and annihilate this machine. Paradise ladies and gentlemen, I offer you paradise. All I ask is that you bow to me. Bow to me. I want you all to take a long hard look at the lie you've been living in. Take a look at your loved ones and make a choice. Or I will be forced to make a choice for you. Like I had to do for Kane, like I had to make a choice for Ryback, like my brother Braun will have to do for the Big Show right now.
Braun- Wake up or run.
