The Bloodline is too much for Kevin, him, or anyone. He is not trying to make things okay. They don’t need to be best friends any more or team. They have the same objective and Sami says they cannot do it alone. They need to do it together. Sami tells Kevin to listen to him. Sami goes on and says he doesn’t need to be best friends or a team but whatever the adjective is, the only way to do this is do it together.

Owens says he knows Sami was in The Bloodline… he recalls how Sami staked his claim in the group from this same arena, at Owens’ expense. Owens goes on and says he doesn’t want to do this with Sami… OK? Owens says maybe he was wrong, maybe Sami should just go back to Roman Reigns and apologize, stroke his ego, Reigns will probably forgive Sami, Owens doesn’t care what Sami does… just leave Owens out of it, please. Owens asks Sami if he understands? Fans boo in the arena as Sami turns to leave.

– Back from the break and we get a promo focusing on Rhea Ripley to push her WrestleMania 39 match against SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair.

– We go back to the ring and out is The Miz, host of WrestleMania 39. We see what happened between Miz and Seth Rollins last week.

Miz says you’re probably wondering why he’d want to step in the ring with Rollins after what he did last week, but he’s going to moderate this face-to-face between Rollins and Logan Paul. Miz says he can’t have any bias, so he will moderate this face-to-face because that’s what a professional host does, and if anyone has a problem with it, they probably should not have used his mobile phone to set it up. Miz goes on and introduces Paul, who comes out to mostly boos but some cheers.

Miz offers his hand to Paul but Paul leaves him hanging, and goes right to the corner to pose. The music quickly interrupts and out comes Rollins as fans begin singing his theme. The music stops but fans are still singing. Miz tries to hush them but they’re not having it. Paul tells Boston to shut up as this segment has a time limit. Miz thanks him but fans boo them, then continue to sing Rollins’ theme.

Fans finally stop singing when Rollins speaks to give Boston a shout-out. Rollins says look what the cat drug in – this social media extraordinaire. Fans chant “Logan sucks!” now. Rollins laughs and says it looks like they know who you are. Rollins says he and Paul have had their run-ins, but they’ve never been formally introduced. Rollins says in case Paul didn’t know… he is The Visionary, The Revolutionary, Seth Freakin’ Rollins. Fans pop. Paul says he knows who Rollins is, buddy. Fans begin singing again. Paul says Rollins is the clown he dumped at Royal Rumble, the one who had his head stomped at Elimination Chamber. Paul isn’t sure what Rollins’ problem with him is… besides the fact that he embarrassed Rollins, and accomplished more in 1 year than Rollins did in 20, and because he’s simply better than Rollins at his job. Paul says he’s on his way in, Rollins is on his way out because Paul works smarter, not harder. Paul says he’s naturally good at this. Paul says he doesn’t know what to tell Boston but if he were Rollins, he wouldn’t like him either.

Miz says he’s not taking sides but Paul makes a few good points. Fans chant “fuck you Logan!” now. Rollins agrees with Miz and says none of that is why we don’t like Paul… we don’t like Paul because he is scum of the Earth. Fans pop. Paul is a coward, a troll, a fraud, a human dumpster fire, and we don’t want you in our house. Rollins says Boston didn’t come here to watch them mix words, Boston came to see Rollins get his pound of flesh, so the time to talk is over, it’s time to fight. Rollins drops the mic but Miz tries to calm things. He says as moderator it’s his job to make sure they don’t fight. Paul tells Miz to not speak for him, and if he wants to fight Rollins tonight in Boston, he’s going to do it, because that’s how he does. But guess what Bucko… Paul isn’t going to do it because he doesn’t fight for free. Paul says he’s a premium act and definitely will not fight for free in Boston, get real. Fans boo. Paul says if the stage was bigger, the money was better, if there was more star power, he’d consider it. Miz says he is the host of WrestleMania and he could make this match happen. Rollins and Miz have words and Rollins pulls him out of the ring to go get this match made in the back.

Paul tries to attack but Rollins catches him. Paul kicks Rollins and goes for the Stomp but Rollins blocks it. Miz rushes back in but Rollins superkicks him. Paul attacks but Rollins rushes him back into the corner. Rollins then charges Paul but gets dropped with a big right hand. Rollins is face-down as Paul celebrates and fans boo.

He recalls watching Cena with his mom, and learning about hustle, loyalty, respect. He thanks Cena for that.

Theory came out with a gift from the bottom of his heart, one bigger than any movie role Cena will do. It’s a gift of me and you… the Cena chants cut Theory off. Theory says the gift is he and Cena on The Grandest Stage of Them All, for the WWE United States Title.

Cena simply says no. He takes a second to think about it, and says no, again. Cena says he’s not interested in Theory’s gift because Theory hasn’t earned the right to give it. Cena has been watching and listening Theory, and he doesn’t care, just like every single person in here… we don’t care about you, Cena says. Fans pop. Why? We don’t care about you because we don’t believe you. We don’t believe you because you don’t believe you. You’re a generic kid in fancy sneakers, wearing sunglasses indoors, and you have nothing here… Cena points to his heart. Cena points to a sign in the crowd that says Theory is a wanna-be Cena.

Cena says Theory has the best name in WWE history. He names people like Steve Austin, The Rock, The Undertaker, and says there is no name better than Austin Theory. Fans boo. Because that is exactly what you are… a theory. In theory you should be great, in theory you’re everything a WWE executive looks for, in theory everyone here should be here to see you, but no one cares and you’re wasting our time.

Theory asks if fans want to see Cena at WrestleMania? They pop and he tells them to shut up because Cena said no, he’s giving up. Theory says people are right to say you never want to meet your hero because they do disappoint. Cena says he’d rather be bald than to have WWE pipe in fake crowd noise for his matches because fans don’t care. Cena says he can buy some hair products but Theory still sucks. Cena says Theory is a dumb son of a bitch… Cena didn’t say no to give up, he said no to save Theory’s ass because Theory isn’t ready. Cena says Theory is putting his back against the wall but he doesn’t understand. Cena says if they have a match at WrestleMania and Theory loses, he’s done, he loses everything… but if Theory wins, he still loses everything. Theory might win the day but then he has to go out the next Monday, by himself, and explain… without Cena to lean on, against the most harsh WWE crowd and they will eat Theory alive, they will see what Cena sees, and that he’s full of crap.

Cena says Theory left him no choice because he brought the fans into it, and now he’s got to ask them. Cena asks Boston… he stops and thanks his family for being here to watch him tonight.

Cena’s music starts and he goes to leave but he stops and says Theory really needs to work on that last bit, a reference to below the belt.

Jey then drops his finger and drops Zayn with a superkick, sending him into the barrier as fans go wild. Jimmy looks on from the ring with a devious grin. Jey grabs Sami by the head and says you thought I’d choose you, this is family shit, boy. Jey rolls Sami back into the ring and Jimmy attacks but Jey takes over. Sikoa comes back out for the triple team but the music hits and out comes Cody Rhodes to a big pop. In a suit, Rhodes rushes the ring as The Bloodline backs away from Sami. Jey goes to the apron, Jimmy is at the ropes, but Solo is barely backing down from Cody. Sikoa stares a hole through Cody as the crowd pops. Rhodes kneels down and checks on Zayn as RAW goes off the air.
