RAW Starts

GONG!

Out comes Taker in his famously slow and eerie way. To the corner of the ring, and he raises the lights. Taker into the ring. Video recap of Taker in the casket last week on RAW. "Undertaker!" chants fill the arena.

Taker – 21 men have stepped up, and 21 men have been set down. Now I do not claim to be better than my victims, but at the showcase of the immortals, I will go farther than anyone else, and that's why The streak stays alive. I'm sure Brock Lesnar is thinking, how am I going to break The Streak. Well, Brock, what you should be thinking about is what's going to happen when I take out out to the deep water, when your feet can no longer touch the bottom. What are you going to do Brock? Are you gonna try and take me to the bottom with you, or are you going to try and swim back to shore? Every opponent of mine has made that decision, have been in the same spot you will be this Sunday, and they have tried to swim back to short, but not one of them have made it yet! Now I know, Brock, that you're very dangerous, and there are many who think my time will come, that it's inevitable that The Streak will be broken.

"NO!" "NO!" "NO!"

Taker – But there are many more who believe in three things. Three things that can't be beat – death, taxes, and The Streak. Brock Lesnar, this Sunday at WrestleMania, you will rest in peace...

Brock's music hits. Brock and Heyman out to the stage.

Heyman – I don't mean any disrespect. (heat) My client means disrespect, but I don't. ("CM Punk!" chants start.) This isn't a match that Brock has to win, this is a match that Taker must not loose. You can beat on my client's body with a demon's fury until hell freezes over, but all it takes is one moment, one F5, three seconds later The Streak is over. ("CM Punk!" chants end.) This Sunday the WWE presents to you the most historic WrestleMania moment since Hulk Hogan defeated Andre the Giant when Brock breaks The Streak at WrestleMania! (heat) Now, that's not a prediction, that's a spoiler.

Huge heat as they almost leave, but then Brock turns back to look at Taker. Brock slowly heads for the ring. Taker readies himself. He throws back his hood, then removes his beautiful leather cloak. "Undertaker!" chants. Brock stops, looks at Taker, then backs away. "You suck!" chants for Brock. Brock then heads to the ring, gets right up next to it, stops, smiles and backs away again. Brock around the side of the ring, Heyman around the other as fans yell nastiness at Brock. They meet at announce through more heat from the fans. Brock walks around the ring to the ramp, so he's completely circles it once, but Heyman is still behind Taker and slides in a chair to distract. Brock in, but Taker is ready. They go back and forth a bit, but then Brock with a clothesline. Brock picks Taker up and lands an F5! Taker on the mat, completely selling the move, as Brock poses over him. Brock leaves the ring as Taker slowly regains his composure. Brock on the ramp, Taker on the mat as RAW goes to commercial.

Backstage Segment

Harper is whistling Whole World.
Bray – We're all just bleeding from the inside out. It lives and breathes, and like everything else, it craves change. Problem is, it becomes to easy to be enamored with the gardens, to turn a blind eye to the landfills. You can't just whisper in people's ears anymore and get them to understand you, to believe in you. You have to pry their eyes open, and force them to watch. Do I have your attention now kids? Hahahaha! She said I was a child born to lead, that I would be the one to teach them the difference between diamonds and dust. That I would be the one to take everything they love and burn it to the ground, leave nothing but ashes. She said that I would change the world. They're going to cry for you John. They won't understand, not at first, but in time, they will forget you, and you'll be left with nothing, and they will see you the same way that I do, as a monster, John. (singing) He's got the whole world in his hands.

DEP!

Commercial

In Ring Segment

Trip and Steph out, but in their power suits – her with a gray shirt under her's, and him with a white shirt and a fleshy-peach tie and pocket square.

Steph – My husband and I are benevolent people, that's why we give you the opportunity to say farewell to #YesMovement before my husband destroys Bryan at WrestleMania.

Trip – Here's the thing Steph, I don't know how much they will care. This generation, there is no loyalty. They really don't care, they just want to be a part of something. They don't want to do something, that would require work and effort, they just want to feel a part of something. So they have a flavor of the day, something they can latch on to, but they move on when they're done.

Steph – They discard it.

Trip – I'll give you and example, one year ago at this time, what was the thing that was so huge?

Steph – After WrestleMania...

They both sing a tune very badly and do the Fandango dance.

Trip – That's it, what was that guy's name?

Steph – Fandango.

Trip – No, no, no. Fahn-Dahg-Gooo! Remember him? Remember it was the biggest thing in the world, then you threw it away and didn't give a crap. The sad thing is, that kid is a quality talent, a solid B+, maybe an A player, but you don't care, you just move on.

"CM Punk!" chants, but after each one, a couple people yell, "Sucks!"

Steph – Can I ask you guys a question. Who here wants to see Bryan tonight. Let's see, "YES!" "YES!" "YES!"

"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"

Steph – Wow! You're right, even I can get them to chant "YES!" Look at them, they ate it up! I'm part of something!

Trip – They will do anything, it doesn't matter.

Steph – It's amazing! Chant all you want, Bryan won't be here this evening. (heat) I don't expect you to understand, but that's just what's best for business. What's best for Bryan is him head to New Orleans a little early and rest up.

Trip – Trust me, it's in his best interest. You people need to understand, Bryan and #YesMovement are a myth, a fallacy. You want to believe that Bryan is an A+ player, but he isn't, and no matter how many times you come out and chant yes, it doesn't make it true.

"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"

Steph – Here they go again.

Trip – I'll give you an example of that, it's like all the people that think I have all the power and success, because I married well. (heat) I'll be the first to admit, that I married spectacularly. (they look into each others eyes sweetly and kiss) But the reason I have the power is because of my dominance in the ring. It's the reason I got to the top and stayed at the top. It didn't matter which flavor of the week you threw my way. ("Boring!" chants start) It didn't matter what guy you jumped on, the be all, end all, the one guy that did it all, ended the reign of tyranny of Triple H. the same thing happened over and over again. You don't believe me, take a look.

Video of Trip's history, narrated by Steph. Booker T, Scotty Steiner, RVD, Jeff Hardy, Goldberg, Foley, Jericho, Angle – but in the end, none of it matters because none of it lasts. In the end it's The Game, and only one man knows how to play it. He destroyed every pretender, turned all false idols into rubble. One man who has shattered the dreams of the screaming hordes. He cannot be stopped. He will not be stopped. At WrestleMania he will put and end to your next sacrificial lamb, your chosen voice, your chosen one. In the end, there's only one Triple H.

Steph – I gotta admit Baby, I do love watching you in the ring.

Trip – Here's the thing, it's not that any of those guys aren't great, they are, all of them, HOFs, all of them, but the reality is, they were just players in the game, and I am The Game. I am The game now, more than ever. Since you've all cried so much about it, not only am I going to beat Bryan at WrestleMania, and put and end to this pathetic #YesMovement, I'm then stepping in with Orton and Batista and prove I am the most powerful man in the WWE. I will walk out of WrestleMania as the COO of this company, and WWE WHC! (heat)

Steph and Trip are about to leave the ring, but Batista's music hits. He comes out in snug jeans, a blue t-shirt with a #33 Georgetown tank over it, a tweed golf hat, and new sunglasses after Steph broke his last week. Hopefully new jeans after Batista really broke his last week. In his brand new looking work boots, Batista heads to the ring. A smattering of "Batista!"chants in his hometown.

Batista – I love this, love what you're doing, saying goodby to #YesMovement, it's very cute, but I couldn't help but notice, I wasn't in your video. That's because you never beaten me.

Trip – No, yeah, you said that before. A bunch of times actually, it's as if you can't think of anything else to say. By the way, nice shirt, you pick it up in the gift shop when you were picking up new glasses from last week? (shock) Don't you have a match with Orton you should be getting ready for?

Batista – Shouldn't you be worrying about your match with Bryan? And not focusing on a Championship match you might not have. I forgot, you're the brains of this organization, you're the brawn. (Steph laughs)

I hear voices in my head... Orton comes out, talking on his way to the ring.

Orton – Wait a minute Steph. Wait a minute, Steph if you're about to do what I think you're going to do, and slap the taste out of Batista's mouth like last week, could you wait until I get a little closer to the ring, so that I can get a front row seat. On second thought, leave Big Dave alone, I want the opportunity to beat some respect into him later tonight in our match. Trip, Steph, you both know I have the utmost respect for you, and I think it's apparent what is truly best for business is a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania. I'm not thrilled, but I know it's what's best. Trip, I know you will beat Bryan and #YesMovement, and I would be honored to defend these titles against you on the grandest stage of them all, but I have to ask one more time, if for no one elses sake but your own, would you please reconsider this Triple Threat Match. ("What?")

Trip – Randy, no amount of ass kissing is going to get you out of this. Your reign as WWE WHC is coming to an end very soon, unless you can find it within yourself to be The Viper again. 'Cause the reality is, if you're The Viper, I don't know if I can beat that guy. If you're going to find him, find him soon as you're facing Batista tonight and it's No DQ.

Trip and Steph leave the ring, so Orton poses with both belts at Batista. Then the stare each other down.

Video recap of Kane getting his revenge on The Shield two weeks ago on Smackdown. Which member of The Shield faces Kane tonight?

Backstage Segment

Rollins – Honestly, guys, I almost feel bad for Kane. Look at this, it's like murderer's row back here. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter who wins, because Kane is in trouble. And if his little geriatric sidekicks, New Age Outlaws, want to get involved, they're going to find out, why they call this (his fist) the new symbol of excellence.

Ambrose – The important thing to remember here is that we never disrespected Kane. Kane, and now the New Age Outlaws, disrespected us when they disrespected what this (fist) represents. At WrestleMania, in six days, we're going to teach those kids a lesson about attitude.

Reigns – Learn that lesson, and spread the word, The Shield is NOT to be messed with. Believe that! And believe in The Shield.

Backstage Segment

Renee – John, after what we just saw, it's clear we can expect anything at WrestleMania when you face Bray.

Cena – Desperate times call for desperate measures, as you can hear. Bray continues to spread his propaganda, telling people that he will prove Cena is a liar and turn him into a monster. Be careful what you wish for Mr. Wyatt, a persona can do dangerous things when pushed, as you just saw in the ring. I will fight for what I believe in, and he forced me to fight. Sunday you will see fire, and you will see rage, and Cena will be a monster. Being a monster for a day will secure a legacy for a lifetime. Am I afraid? Yes. The greatest thing about fear is the moment you realize you have the courage to face it. Every Superstars' career has a beginning and an end. I'll be damned if my end is on Sunday, and I'll be damned if it's at the hand of Bray Wyatt! If you have a pair of shoes, run down to New Orleans and catch WrestleMania, or make history as we all watch it streaming live on the WWE Network! You're gonna see Bray, self proclaimed ruler of the world demanding change. Oh boy I'm going to give you change! You will have to change the way you walk, because I'm gonna stuff my foot up your ass!

Piper's Pit!

Piper in the ring, all set up in red and tartans.

Piper – I love you too. It's WrestleMania season! Look out! 29 years ago today! I had the honor to be in the main event of the first WrestleMania ever! (pop) And let me note it, it was not I who got pinned in the middle of the ring. (pop) Thank you! But there was a man that played a huge role in WrestleMania, and making it the monster it is today. That man the 8th Wonder of The World, Andre The Giant! (pop) Now, this Sunday, 30 Superstars will be in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, and they will have their WrestleMania moment, and a chance to have their names linked with one of the greatest legends in the history of the business of professional wrestling. Now, if you're asking me who I think the favorite is, the odds favorite... (reaching up to show he's talking about Big Show)

Miz's music and out he comes.

Piper – Really? What are you doing? I'm talking here!

Piper – Really?

Miz – Really?

Piper – Really?

Miz – Really?

Piper – Really?

Miz – Really? Because I thohght you were going to bring out the odds on favorite to win the Battle Royal, here I am. Unlike you Piper, unlike Andre The Giant, I've won the main event of WrestleMania. Let's face it, those 29 other Superstars don't compare to the most must see Superstar of all time! That's why Piper's Pit doesn't compare to Miz TV!

Sheamus' music.

Piper – Really?

Sheamus – Hello Miz. Howdy Piper. People say it's better to appear stupid and keep your mouth closed, than open it and take away all doubt. I'm afraid that ship sailed a long time ago. As for TV shows, fella, you're not fit to hold Piper's kilt. When it comes to the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, I see an Andre trophy and pint in my future and a brogue kick over the top rope in your's.

Piper – Now we're talking!

Out comes O'Neil talking.

O'Neil – Hole up! Hole up! Yeah, I said hold without the D! If anybody deserves to win the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, let me spell it out for you. It's T-I-T-U-S! After I win this Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania XXX.

Piper – You stand over here, let me talk. Stay there.

O'Neil barks in Piper's face, then Ziggler's music hits.

Piper – Really? Are you serious? I'm talking here!

Ziggler – Piper, I'm sorry, I hate to come out and steal the spotlight, just kidding that's totally my thing, and exactly what I'm going to do this Sunday! Not only do I eliminate everyone in this ring and all the other 29, I etch my name in sports entertainment history.

Piper – You done?

Ziggler – Maybe! Maybe I'm not!

Piper – My turn! Alright, you, you, you, and you, yeah, you're all named You! I've been around long enough to know what's going on. Miz, come here, you're a nice kid.

Double eye poke to Miz's eyes, then Piper pushes him into Sheamus, so they brawl, and so it means Ziggler and O'Neil needed to brawl too. They beat each other down, and Piper is on the apron. 3MB, Young, Gabriel, Sin Cara and Ryder all come out to fight. Rey's music, and he runs to the fight. Rey with a hurricanranna on Sin Cara. Brogue kick on Drew. 619 on Sin Cara. Big Show's music hits and out comes the big man. He smiles his whole way down to the ring. All of them on Big Show as he rolls in, but he flings them all off.

Rey up top, flies on Big Show, but he's caught and tossed out onto all the rest who were outside waiting to catch him. Piper in and raises Big Show's hand as his music plays.

Piper – Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal!
