Monday Night Raw
Raw kicks off with a bang! Or more accurately a GONG! The Undertaker is starting us off! The lights go down and Undertaker makes his way through the smoke to the ring.
Undertaker- This WrestleMania will NOT be my last. Now I have made it clear to Vince McMahon that the blood of his son is on HIS hands. But...Vince's blood very well be on mine. Now I know Shane is going to fight for his legacy until he draws his last breath. But WrestleMania is my yard! Hell in a Cell is my house! And at WrestleMania, Shane McMahon will....Rest in Peace.
HERE COMES THE MONEYYYYY
Shane- Hello Brooklyn! Undertaker this Sunday you and I are going to rip each other apart because we have no other choice. The difference is I'm fighting to win and you're fighting not to lose. You may be my father's instrument of destruction but I am the instrument of change for the WWE, that's been needed for a very long time. After Hell in the Cell whatever is left of this body is going to crawl it's way into the ring the next night and we're going to leave Hell in the rear view mirror because I'll be in control of Monday Night Raw! If I have to cement my legacy by destroying yours that's what I have to do.
Undertaker- You need to watch your mouth rich boy. You don't get to talk about MY legacy.
Shane starts walking down the ramp towards The Undertaker. He gets in the ring with Undertaker.
Shane- Let's talk about legacy. Let me take you back to WrestleMania 2 years ago, your legacy died!
Undertaker- You know Shane, you're just like your old man. It figures seeing how from the very day you were born, you've been your daddy's bitch.
Shane charges the Undertaker with MMA strikes but Undertaker throws him out of the ring. Taker goes out and hits some knees to the body of Shane and throws him into the barricade. Undertaker clears off the announce table and headbutts Shane. Undertaker sets Shane up for the Last Ride but Shane jumps out of it. Shane unloads strikes on Taker and starts hitting him with anything he can grab including a monitor from the announce table. Undertaker is sprawled out across the announce table and Shane hits him in the head with the monitor again. Shane rolls back in the ring and goes to the top turnbuckle. Shane leaps from the top rope and hits a leap of faith elbow all the way down to the announce table onto Undertaker! Shane makes it halfway up the ramp before the Undertaker sits straight up! Undertaker stands up and slides his thumb across his throat.
Chris Jericho vs. Zack Ryder
AJ styles comes out.
AJ- Woah woah woah, so you're not going to give me the match. Hey Chris really, you'd rather sit out WrestleMania than face me? That's ridiculous, that's stupid. I'm not leaving here tonight until I get the match I want at WrestleMania so go ahead and do what you gotta do.
Ryder rolls up Chris from behind but only gets 2. Jericho sends Ryder over the top rope and hits a baseball slide. Jericho hits Ryder with JBL's hat and then rolls him in. Jericho kicks Zack in the gut. Jericho with chops to Ryder. Ryder fights back with forearms. Ryder hits a missile dropkick and a running forearm. Ryder goes for the Broski boot but Jericho counters and tries to lock in Walls of Jericho but AJ starts chanting "Y2Jackass." Ryder rolls Jericho up and gets the win!
Winner: Zack Ryder
Jericho immediately hits a code breaker and then throws a fit outside the ring when AJ runs in to save Ryder. Jericho grabs a mic and calls Styles an idiot and accepts his challenge for a match at WrestleMania.
Charlotte w/ Rick vs. Becky Lynch. Sasha Banks is on commentary.
Both ladies shove each other to start. Charlotte gets thrown onto the apron but uses the ropes to take advantage. She mocks Sasha as we head to break.
We return and Charlotte has a headlock on Becky and is hitting her with knees. Becky fights out but gets kicked in the gut. Becky hits a big clothesline and another! Becky hits a running forearm and an exploder suplex! 2 count. Becky goes for the Disarmer but Charlotte counters with a rollup for 2. Becky sends Charlotte to the apron and then kicks her to the mat below. Sasha gets up and distracts Charlotte as Becky comes running. Nature boy catches the leg of Becky as she gets back in. The distraction allows Charlotte to hit a big boot and the Natural Selection for the win.
Renee Young is backstage with Vince McMahon! She asks him if he's surprised at all about the physicality from Shane earlier.
Vince- No not at all, I think that's a little inkling of what you'll see at WrestleMania, you see Shane isn't afraid of the Undertaker, he'll do anything to win. Undertaker says that Hell in a Cell is his yard, WrestleMania is his house. What he doesn't understand is that Shane doesn't want the yard or the house, he wants the whole WWE Universe. He just angered the Undertaker and that's what I want....If I were you I'd be halfway across the Brooklyn bridge.
Shane walks up- It's a good thing I'm not you. My entire life I have seen you discard people like human waste. You think you're a God, you're omnipotent. No one can run the company better than Vince McMahon! This Sunday the very stage you created I'm going to take 40 years of mental torture and unleash it. This Sunday the very company that you stole from your father, I'm gonna take from you!
Social Outcasts are sitting on the ring apron. Axel wishes his dad happy birthday quickly before Axel starts with his usual welcome, but Big Show's music cuts him off.
Big Show and Kane vs. Social Outcast's Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas
Axel and Kane start. Kane shoves Axel and Axel shoves Kane. Kane puts Curtis in the corner but Axel moves. Axel starts laughing.

It leads to Big Show, Kane and Mark Henry. Big Show and Kane double chokeslam Henry together. The Social Outcasts run in and all 4 get chokeslammed by Kane and Big Show at the same time.
Triple H and Stephanie make their way to the ring for an in-ring segment.
Steph- That's right people stand up! Get on your feet and show the proper respect for my husband Triple H! Better yet get down on your knees and grovel at his feet! That's how you show respect to the 14-time World Heavyweight Champion.
HHH- In 6 days the world will watch, millions will watch live, the spectical known as WrestleMania. They will watch for 1 reason and 1 reason only, that is the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. It's the most important thing in this industry, it's the dream of everyone here. That's not to take away from anything else, but this is the dream. It is the dream of the millions watching around the world. Whether you admit it or not everyone has had the dream to stand in the ring at WrestleMania and hold the WWE Championship above their head. That'll never happen for any of you, you don't have the ability to make your dreams a reality. Roman Reigns did because Roman is one of those 1 in a million athletes that he can turn his dreams into a reality, he's so good he's able to become WWE Champion for all 5 minutes and 15 seconds. This Sunday I will walk the isle at WrestleMania for the 20th time and for the 9th time competing for a World Championship at WrestleMania. More than any man in history! Wanna know why? Because I'm obsessed with it. Since day 1 I was obsessed with being WWE Championship. The fame, the power, the money, I was obsessed. It lead me to become the most successful man in WWE history! A 14-time World Champion. The best WWE Superstar in history. I've had a strangle hold on this championship for the last 20 years. I thought this obsession had died down, I thought I'd become a corporate man. Then Roman Reigns powerbomed me through that announce table and Roman lit my obsession again. I don't know if it because I felt people forgot who I was, maybe it's because someone like Roman Reigns had the balls to put my name in his mouth. It wasn't long before I was once again the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Roman Reigns you have already lost Sunday, you've already made the mistake at WrestleMania of relighting my obsession. My obsession means the end of your dream. It ensures I walk out of WrestleMania as WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Steph- This Sunday isn't about ladder matches or unicorns or legacy it's about my husband, the WWE Champion, the Cerebral Assassin!
Roman Reigns music hits and Roman slides in the ring but Triple H is on him with stomps immediately. Roman gets up and knocks down Triple H. Hunter slides away and so does Steph.
Backstage Hunter and Steph are walking away together talking in hushed voices.
AWWWW BROOKLYN!! DON'T YOU DARE BE SOUR!

Backstage Roman Reigns is with Renee Young. Before anything can be said Bubba Ray Dudley starts talking trash. He baits Roman to come toward him when D-Von steps out. Roman doesn't back down and attacks anyway. Triple H runs in and beats down Roman Reigns. He shows Roman the WWE Championship and tells him he'll never be champion again.

Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman make their way out.
Paul- Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman and I serve as the advocate not for the badest man, the badest dude, but the badest beast on the planet today! Brock Lesnar! My job tonight is to hype you on the fact you're 6 days away, this Sunday night you have one of the rare opportunities to see a once ever athlete at his peak do his thing, perform not a single member of that locker room can hope to achieve. Of course in every equation that one exception, that one goof, that one maniac, that one...lunatic. And that one lunatic actually believes he has what it takes to bring the fight to Brock Lesnar. To be the one to conquer the 1 in 22-1. That lunatic's name is Dean Ambrose. I'll give Dean Ambrose all the credit in the world, Brock won't give him much, but I will give him a hell of a lot. Dean Ambrose is crazy as a fox, he think if he takes an NCAA and UFC Champion out of his element into a no holds barred match and take every weapon, though I'm not supposed to say weapon it's politically incorrect, IT'S CALLED A WEAPON! and Dean Ambrose wants to take these weapons where they are encouraged! The next big star as that opportunity when he steps into the ring at WrestleMania with Brock Lesnar! Here's the bad news, Dean Ambrose has to step into the ring with Brock Lesnar! Because Brock Lesnar is fully prepared to give Dean Ambrose the defining WrestleMania moment in history when Dr. Brock Lesnar takes those politically incorrect weapons and performs a colonoscopy on Dean Ambrose. I said it 2 years ago and I'll say it tonight, this is not a prediction this is a spoiler, your winner and still reigning, defending, undisputed master of the no holds barred--
Dean Ambrose's music hits and cuts of Heyman. Ambrose comes out with a wagon to ringside. Dean goes under the ring and grabs a crowbar, a steel pipe, a baseball bat, Barbie, a fire extinguisher, the chainsaw and puts it all in his wagon.

Triple H and Stephanie return to the ring, having promised to finish their "mission statement" from earlier.
Steph- All of you look at us with such hatrid in your eyes because you know you're never going live your lives like us. You hang your hopes on men like Roman Reigns and then reality comes crashing down. Which is exactly what's going to happen to Roman Reigns after WrestleMania. You all are hoping for new leadership after WrestleMania but that's not going to happen, you're not getting a new WWE Champion, that title isn't going anywhere and neither are we.
Hunter- I hear the talk about attacking from behind and running away as if it's not strategy. As if it's cowardice. Here's the thing, there is a lot at stake here. You can take your morality and shove it. I don't care.
