Drew McIntyre & The OC In-Ring Segment 

Drew McIntyre: I’m gonna need someone to come over here and pinch me. I’m convinced i’ve been dreaming for the past 24 hours. San Antonio, it feels so good to stand here before you and tell you that, the winner of the 2020 Royal Rumble, Drew McIntyre. Does everyone know what that means? I’m going to WrestleMania. I know that someone of the guys like to play games when they’re in this position and draw this out, but that’s not my style.

I think it’s time we make a little announcement now. I think i’m going to make a challenge. I challenge Brock Lesnar. I can tell you for a fact, most of the guys in the back are terrified of that man, not me. When I walked into that ring last night, I looked into his eyes. You know what I saw? Claymore this man over the top rope and that’s exactly what I did. And you know what else I know?

I’m going to beat Brock Lesnar for the WWE Title at WrestleMania. I’m fired up. I’m trying to calm down. I need to get all this energy out. I feel like giving out some ClayMores, right now.

Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens & Samoa Joe Promo 

Seth Rollins: Now last night, I was this close from winning the Royal Rumble for the second year in a row. But it was not in the cards for me. In fact, I was eliminated by the eventual winner, Drew McIntyre. Yes, let’s give a round of applause for Drew McIntyre, everybody’s favorite superstar. Drew, enjoy it while it last because they will stab you in the back, so fast. Now look, I’m not here to focus on the negatives. I’m a leader. I am here to focus on the positives and the two positives that came out of last nights Royal Rumble. I eliminated Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe.

Neither of those men are going into WrestleMania. Now another positive is right here, besides me. Because last week, my newest disciple, Buddy Murphy, dethroned the unbeatable Viking Raiders to become the new Raw Tag Team Champions. Now earlier today, Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe laid out a challenge for a Raw Tag Team Championship Match. Since i’m a benevolent leader, I have accepted that challenge. So Kevin and Joe, come out here and get your ass handed to you by The Monday Night Messiah.

Kevin Owens: He still talks way too much, doesn’t he? You know Seth, I just wanted to make you aware of something. Not only are you absolutely delusional, but I need you to know. These past few weeks, these path few months really, you’ve been an absolute jackass. Hey, I mean it from the bottom of my heart buddy, you suck now.

Seth Rollins: Oh, that’s rich coming from you, Kevin. You know what? You talk about me saying too much, me talking too much, why don’t you stop talking, come down here and fight for the tag team titles?

Samoa Joe: Now, hold on for a second. Who’s this in the ring, right now? Seth Rollins got his big boy pants on and he’s all ready to fight. Well Seth, it’s funny to me because, week after week, Kevin’s been coming out here looking for this fight, but you haven’t. So what is different about tonight?

Kevin Owens: Yea, you’re not so eager to fight usually. It’s like you have your hired goons hiding somewhere, ready to jump us. So tell me, where are they? Is AOP under the ring? Are they hiding in the crowd? Are they about to jump us? Tell us where they are.

Seth Rollins: I thought you might say that. Look, we don’t need The AOP to beat you two. So, I told them to stay in the back. And since I thought you might not think that was a lie, I put a camera back there, so can we please get the camera crew to show The AOP? What’s up boys? They’re in the back. There’s your proof, they’re not hiding out here.

Samoa Joe: Kevin, obviously that’s enough proof for me. I feel much better about this. I mean it’s not like we work here with a bunch of cameras that records things earlier in the day and that maybe you’re just trying to run another scam. I hate to think that, Seth.

Seth Rollins: Wait a minute. Are you calling me a liar? You can call me a lot of things, but don’t you dare call me a liar. Pull that AOP back up on the tron. Akam, say something to Kevin. See you understand. I am a liar now? They’re in my private dressing room, right now.

Kevin Owens: Well Seth, while I can’t dispute what he just told me, I just want to say thank you. Because now we don’t have to look for them anymore.
