Vince McMahon, Braun Strowman, Elias, and Baron Corbin In-Ring Segment: 

Brock Lesnar has always been afraid of Braun Strowman. When Strowman had the Money In The Bank contract, Brock was always looking over his shoulder. When he was about to get his hands on Brock at World Cup, he had Baron Corbin attack him.  Braun hopes that Beastie Boy is watching this from his training camp because he is fully healed. Baron Corbin is not in charge so there is no one to do your dirty business. At Chase Field, he will get the Universal Championship and all Brock Lesnar will get is these hands. Baron Corbin comes out to interrupt Strowman.

Corbin may not run Raw anymore, but he will stay up here all night. Corbin basically pokes a fun at the fact that Strowman can’t last five minutes in a ring with Lesnar. Strowman keeps letting the people down. He can’t beat Brock Lesnar. Corbin will focus on winning the Royal Rumble Match and going somewhere Strowman will never go, the main event of WrestleMania. On cue Strowman starts running after Corbin. Strowman lays out Sunil Singh in the backstage area. Corbin runs into a limo. Strowman is still looking for Corbin.

Vince calls Strowman a raging wooly mammoth. Look at what Strowman did to Vince’s limousine. Vince will cost you $100,000. Strowman says that piece of crap isn’t worth $100,000. Since Strowman wants to raise his voice, he’ll lose his Universal Title opportunity at the Royal Rumble PPV. Strowman flips the limo over in a fit of rage.

Vince McMahon, John Cena, Finn Balor, Drew McIntyre and Baron Corbin In-Ring Segment: 

Before Vince McMahon can speak, John Cena makes his way to the ring. WWE just lost their Universal Title Match on the biggest show on the Road to WrestleMania. Vince is going to tell someone to step up. When everyone left this guy high and dry 20 years ago. Steve Austin, The Rock, Brock Lesnar, etc. Vince didn’t know what to do. He looked at a crew of misfits and reject and told them to step up. Cena did and he promised to never let him down. He gave Cena more chances as the years went by. Cena missed birthdays, weddings, and funerals for this.

Stepping up is making this your life and loving every minute of it. Cena wants to fight Brock Lesnar. The Royal Rumble will be unforgettable. Cena will walk into the Royal Rumble, beat Brock Lesnar and become the 17 Time WWE Champion. Cena has what no other WWE Superstar has and that’s ruthless aggression. Drew McIntyre comes out to interrupt Cena. How dare you? McIntyre doesn’t care about Cena’s 16 championships, his movies or whatever book he’s writing. How can Cena really stand there in this ring with a straight face and claim that he still has Ruthless Aggression?

This is what Ruthless Aggression looks like. Cena’s time is up and his time is now. Just like Stone Cold, the Rock, and Lesnar, you can leave. Baron Corbin appears on the stage, his life was threatened by Braun Strowman. He is not the type of person who had a lawyer on speed dial, but if he was, they can both agree what is best for business is give him a Universal Championship match against Brock. Finn Balor joins the conversation. He is a little tired of being left out of these conversations.

You three can make claims to a lot of things, but Balor is the only one who has ever been Universal Champion. Maybe Balor will be the Universal Champion one day, but there is a lot of beef in this ring. Balor has it all, but against Brock Lesnar and all of this beef, Vince doesn’t know.  Vince has never believed in Balor, but the people do. Balor knows that Vince is stubborn and nothing he says will change his mind. Maybe this will. Balor is throwing forearms at Corbin. McIntyre HeadButts Cena. Balor dropkicks Corbin. McIntyre delivers Two ClayMore Kicks. Vince likes this. Let’s find out who is going to face Brock Lesnar. How about doing it tonight in a Fatal Four Way Match?
