In a segment on Raw describing the stipulation to the Shane McMahon vs The Undertaker match, WWE chairman Vince McMahon referred to his son Shane as "the most formidable opponent Undertaker's ever faced at WrestleMania".
Stephanie McMahon had a better idea. Triple H hadn't shown his face throughout the episode but when he did Reigns was waiting and took on him when he came to pick up Stephanie. "Well he damn well better", he continued. Don't continue with the Cena-quick wit, be your own entity, and you'll go places in this business.
That's what a Raw match should be. All fans need to do is watch him get suplexed by Kurt Angle into a glass wall or when he dived off the Titantron onto Big Show in a last man standing match. He said this to draw the ire of Dolph Ziggler, The Miz, and the returning Sami Zayn. He was "blowing up" as Snuka would later say, but few knew how high Taker's star would rise after this match. Terry Funk is backstage, and he has a chainsaw for Ambrose. Funk praises how great Ambrose is, and gives him a gift to go along with Mick Foley's barbed wire bat: a chainsaw.
Interrupted by the New Day, the segment picks up. It wouldn't just set up a huge main event for next year's WrestleMania. Serving time in TNA is no longer the death sentence that it once was when it comes to having a future in WWE, and Roode and Young both deserve the opportunity to show what they could do in WWE if given the chance.
The Kickoff Show will officially begin at 7pm EST/4pm PST. We then have a quick Jericho v Fandango WrestleMania Rewind, as Styles enters and distracts Jericho, yet Jericho's able to hit the Codebreaker for a quick win over the jobber. The Miz, Sami Zayn and Dolph Ziggler enter, and all 7 start to brawl. Eventually, Charlotte lands Natural Selection and a 3-count for the win. And then The Usos would pop up, save the day with Superkicks and try to get some table action inside the ring.
Vince heads out to the ring with the "Major Announcement" alluded to in the first sentence. However, fans who are skeptical that McMahon-Undertaker match won't deliver need not to worry. PW Insider is reporting he was added to the match due to the injury that happened to Neville last week. We close the show with The Lunatic Fringe!
Ambrose decides to get a steel chair and attack Braun Strowman to cause the disqualification.
