During Monday night's episode of RAW in Philadelphia, Dean Ambrose appeared in a bar in a pre-taped promo, talking about his upcoming no-holds-barred street fight against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32 in two weeks.
Yes, Ambrose tested out the actual, working chainsaw. New Day is always entertaining, but they are only so interesting against a group like League of Nations. The Social Outcasts interrupt the Big Show and start ganging up of "The World's Largest Athlete", who is saved by longtime tag team partner, Kane. Big Show thanks Kane, but Kane decides to choke slam the Big Show from the top turnbuckle.
Is control over WWE Raw really the meat of the match?
Could the Deadman's 20-plus year career end at WrestleMania? Tonight, Fandango has a very angry Chris Jericho on his hands. AJ Styles pops up for some deja vu match interference, allowing Fandango to roll Jericho in a quick pin, but Y2J escapes and hits the Codebreaker for the win. Dolph Ziggler is also expected to make a move, still desperate to earn a match at WrestleMania.
Kevin Owens is in the ring to announce the competitors in the triple threat match to determine the #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania. Instead, Owens introduced Zack Ryder, Stardust and Sin Cara as potential contender and watched the three go to work.
In order for Shane McMahon to acquire RAW, his father Vince McMahon said he had to win a singles match.
There have been a few different rumored matches that haven't been confirmed yet for WrestleMania despite the event being less than two weeks away. Reigns' actions since losing the title scream "This guy's a heel", but WWE still insists on thinking of him as a white knight instead. However, fans who are skeptical that McMahon-Undertaker match won't deliver need not to worry.
The Vince McMahon announcement is where the show personally disappointed me.
Roman Reigns has been the go ahead guy for WWE in terms of a baby face but the crowd has rarely been pleased with him. Charlotte and Natalya have had great matches in NXT and at Roadblock, which took place a little over a week ago. "Because if Undertaker doesn't defeat Shane this WrestleMania, will be the Undertaker's last". It is possible that Stephanie McMahon and Triple H might bury him under a pile of litigation.
The Undertaker is synonymous with WrestleMania, he has only lost once at The Showcase of the Immortals, to Brock Lesnar back at WrestleMania 30 in 2014.
While Dean Ambrose was especially over, the match he had with Braun Strowman wasn't worth calling a main event in my mind.
