by Bill Rouse

Raw kicks off with Ronda Rousey in a Beat The Clock Challenge match against a member of the Riott Squad.


Crowd taunts Rousey with the “We want Becky” chants. Ronda talks about the WM main event. She says she only has one thing to say. You’re welcome and she’s going to tap out Charlotte and Becky at the same time. She says she has no idea what a beat the clock challenge is. It’s probably another BS gimmick, so let’s get this farce underway.


Match number one in the challenge is Ronda Rousey VS Sarah Logan.


Becky’s music hits and she starts talking crap to Rousey how nobody gave a damn about her until Lynch came around. Lynch takes credit for the main event at Mania.

McIntyre says the eyes don’t lie and neither does he. A video recap is shown of the last two weeks. Drew is pretty much begging Roman to say no to fighting him at WrestleMania 35. Drew tried to appeal to the man, Joe, to think of his family and say no to the fight. Crowd is chanting Roman’s name and Drew demands his answer. Reigns’ music hits and Reigns comes out for his answer. Roman gets in the ring and grabs a microphone. He gets in Drew’s face and accepts the challenge. Joe says don’t ever run your mouth about his wife and kids. Roman Reigns beating leads to a low blow by McIntyre and a Claymore Kick. McIntyre stands over Roman as the referees order him out of the arena. Drew walks backstage as Roman struggles to his feet.

Seth Rollins will speak next.


Next week it will be The Riott Squad VS Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch & Ronda Rousey!


“Burn it Down” leads Seth Rollins to the ring for a promo. Seth says he and Lesnar are not cut from the same cloth, are not taking the same road to WM. The future of the business will be defined by one of them. Seth wants to inspire people like HBK, Bret, Flair and even HHH & Cena did. Up until recently, he didn’t realize how much the match meant to the fans. No matter who left the autograph signing yesterday, they all said “Please beat Brock at WrestleMania.” Seth feels like he HAS TO beat Brock. He refuses to let Lesnar define the future of the business. What the bully Brock doesn’t understand is that with an army behind him, Seth is going to walk to the gates of Suplex City and BURN IT… and Paul Heyman interrupts to thank Rollins for letting him know the match against Rollins is a “handicap match” against Seth Rollins and the entire WWE Universe. Paul likes those odds, because the odds for Seth winning is ZERO. Heyman mocks Rollins for his confidence. Heyman says Seth needs the fans’ thoughts and prayers, because he doesn’t have a prayer of winning at Mania. He wants Rollins to take the match personal. Heyman is chased up the ramp and trips. As Heyman begs for mercy, Seth isn’t asking for thoughts and prayers. WE are gonna take the Universal Championship, go to Suplex City and BURN IT DOWN!


Kurt Angle’s music hits and it’s time for the Kurt Angle Farewell Tour to continue.




back from the break and Angle is in the ring awaiting Samoa Joe.


Kurt Angle VS Samoa Joe

Joe cuts a promo on Kurt and calls the fans scumbags. Joe brings Kurt the gift of a good night’s sleep. This is said to be the first WWE meeting between these two. Headbutt and an eye rake allows Joe to take control immediately. German is blocked, side elbow, snapmare and a face kick. Angle goes outside and ends up eating a Samoa Joe suicide dive.


Back from the break and Samoa Joe is still dominating Angle. Joe runs his mouth and keeps the right hands coming. Kurt finally gets a German Suplex off and hits a trio of them for a two count. Angle Slam countered into Joe’s “trio” for a two count. Angle Slam out of nowhere leading to a two, followed by a countered ankle lock and a two count. Joe sets up for the Muscle Buster, but Angle hit the misfile dropkick. A series of counters leads to the Cocquina Clutch. Kurt fights it off for the pin.

Winner via pinfall – Kurt Angle


Tomorrow night Kurt will go to SmackDown Live for another TNA rematch, as he faces AJ Styles.


Ambrose is backstage.


HHH’s music hits as he comes out to respond to Batista. Paul Levesque is out there.


Paul says it’s crazy the fans gave him a standing ovation through the entire commercial break. He congratulated every woman backstage over the main event at WrestleMania. It was earned, not given. Batista has had his lawyer send a letter saying he won’t compete at WrestleMania unless one more stipulation is agreed to. Batista believes that Evolution was to protect Hunter, hold Batista down and kept him from having a meaningful career. Hunter tells the real story. HHH reads the letter and the stipulation is: HHH’s in ring career is on the line. HHH agrees. HHH recaps the events leading to the match. Batista will not be allowed to quit this time. Hunter doesn’t give a crap about Batista unless it’s kicking his ass. If Hunter can’t beat a self-deluded douchebag like Batista at this stage in his career, he has no business being in the ring. Elias promo again. His tips are stolen (he says about 3 or 4 thousand dollars).


Dean Ambrose’s music hits, and it’s time for the last man standing main event.


Next week, Kurt Angle’s last match on Raw will be against Rey Mysterio. In the six woman tag, if any of the Mania opponents betray their team, they forfeit their opportunity.


McIntyre is in control until a backdrop is telegraphed. Drew goes outside as Dean drops an elbow off the top and hits the barricade. Dean gets up and is whipped into the barricade.


back from the break and Dean gets hit in midair with a kendo stick. Drew breaks the kendo stick over Dean and McIntyre is driven into the barricade. Both men down for a 5 count. Glasgow Kiss headbutt knocks Ambrose down and gets dropped across the apron. Steel steps bounced off Dean. Renee Young telling Dean to stay down, but 6 only. Steel chair wedged in the corner, and McIntyre eats it, followed by Dirty Deeds 2. 8 and Dean assaults Drew before getting a table. Ambrose goes through the table as the official hits the count. 9 and Dean is up into a thunderous Claymore Kick for the victory.

Winner – Drew McIntyre.

postmatch, McIntyre celebrates as we go off the air.


My Thoughts: good show. A lot of in ring action. As far as WrestleMania, disappointing that Undertaker is not in a match. If he doesn’t compete, this will be only the third time ever he hasn’t been on WrestleMania. The other two were WrestleMania X and WrestleMania 2000. Remember folks: when life hands you crap, make lemonade and leave people to wonder how you did it. This is “The Real Deal” Billy Rouse. I’ll see you tomorrow night for SmackDown Live!
