“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.

Paul Heyman kicks off the show with a video. His client is the most dominant force in WWE history. The list of victims is endless: Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Hulk Hogan, The Rock, “Nature Boy” Ric Flair, Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, and The Undertaker at WrestleMania. No one has ever been so dominant for so long.

Drew McIntyre appears in the video and says Lesnar has met his match. Footage is shown of McIntyre putting Lesnar down. This is the same video they played two weeks ago.

WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are in the ring. The hard camera is pointing at the stage. These are uncertain times, but we have certainty in Lesnar. Drew McIntyre can do anything that he wants to. He can train his ass off, he can go to the gym, and spar with Mixed Martial Artists, but McIntyre cannot beat Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania. Not this most unique, most extraordinary WrestleMania. A WrestleMania too big for just one night. McIntyre can get down on his hands and knees, but God’s prayer line will only give him a busy signal. The next time that McIntyre prays for WrestleMania, Lesnar will answer the prayer by making it quick and painless. After what happened at the Royal Rumble and Brooklyn, New York, Lesnar will make it quick but not painless.

Because of what McIntyre accomplished by eliminating Lesnar and winning the Royal Rumble, McIntyre then put Lesnar down on his back three times in Brooklyn. Heyman assures everyone that when WrestleMania is over, McIntyre will be just another bitch wannabe that tried. The greatest champion to ever stand in a WWE ring is the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE Heavyweight Champion of the World: then, now, and forever, Brock Lesnar.

A week from Saturday, Brock Lesnar will defend the WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania.

Randy Orton will answer Edge’s WrestleMania challenge later tonight.

AJ Styles will be live later tonight to talk about Undertaker’s attack on Gallows and Anderson.

They are going to show the classic triple threat match from Royal Rumble 2015 with Brock Lesnar, John Cena, and Seth Rollins.

Video Package: The Undertaker vs. AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36

AJ Styles comes out to the stage with Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. Styles says WrestleMania is too big for one night. As of last week, it is official that the Phenomenal One and the Phenom will go at it at WrestleMania. Styles doesn’t care what night it’s on. It could be Saturday or Sunday. Undertaker might care because he’s not sure when Michelle McCool lets him out of the house.

Undertaker has lost control of everything. Last week when he came out, he was wearing stretch pants like when you’re pregnant. They were maternity pants. It was like a gothic version of The Tiger King. Speaking of tigers, did you see on Undertaker’s Twitter account a video of him in the pool with a tiger and his wife.

Video: Undertaker and Michelle McCool make a pitch to save the tiger.

Styles cannot believe this is real. Who is this man? Has he lost complete control of himself? Ever since he lost his match to Brock Lesnar and ended the Streak, he hasn’t been the same. Styles wanted to take his soul, but Michelle McCool beat him to it. His mystique is gone. Styles wishes he could say this was the first time it has happened, but he’s been doing this for a while. Where has the Undertaker gone? Styles does not want the Mark Calaway posting selfies on Twitter. Styles wants the Undertaker from yesteryear, but he’s nowhere to be found. Styles says he’ll give the WWE Universe what they want. He’ll give the WWE Universe what they want to see. Styles will bring back the Deadman in a match that he would love to be in: a Boneyard Match. When this is over, he’s picked out the perfect plot for Undertaker. Ironically enough, it’s the same plot Michelle McCool picked out when she buried his career.

The Street Profits will defend the Raw Tag Team Championship against United States Champion Andrade and Angel Garza.

Charly Caruso is backstage with Andrade, Angel Garza, and Zelina Vega. Vega makes fun of Charly. Tonight, Andrade and Garza will prove that they’re the most charismatic team in WWE. Andrade will be the most decorated in champion in WWE after WrestleMania. The Street Profits won’t be dancing with the Tag Team Titles much longer. Andrade says they want the titles. Garza says they’re men that know what they want. They walk off, but Garza walks back and winks at Charly.

-Commercial Break-

Kevin Owens is in the ring. Last week, he answered Seth Rollins’ challenge, but Rollins wasn’t here. Owens wants to hear from him tonight.

Seth Rollins walks out to the stage. Rollins had a few questions for Owens regarding his comments. This place is pretty nice, but does Owens honestly believe that fighting him in this building gives him the home field advantage. Rollins didn’t train here, but Owens did. Owens earned his job in WWE in this building… but does Owens understand how he even got the opportunity to do all those things? Rollins didn’t train in this building because it didn’t exist when he got to WWE. This building was built on his blood, sweat, tears, sacrifices, and successes. Rollins’ first day in WWE was him walking into a dilapidated warehouse and told all his past accomplishments meant nothing. Rollins had to come back and suffer, persevere, and succeed not just for him. Rollins gave up his life’s accomplishments for people like Owens to get the opportunity to train in a beautiful building like this. Owens is standing in his way of progress. Owens refuses to fall in line. None of this exists without Seth Rollins. NXT doesn’t exist without him, the Performance Center doesn’t exist without him. There is no Gargano, Ciampa, Undisputed ERA, Women’s Revolution without him. Most importantly without him, there is no Kevin Owens.

Owens says he’s not going to listen to this delusional speech. Rollins asks Owens to let him finish. Rollins needs to know why Owens picked WrestleMania of all places to make an example out of him. Does Owens know Rollins’ track record at WrestleMania? He won the Intercontinental Championship, Universal Championship, beat Brock Lesnar, Triple H, cashed in Money in the Bank… he has more WrestleMania moments than he can count. Owens has zero WrestleMania moments. Owens’ WrestleMania track record reads like this: failure after failure after failure. What about last year? That’s right… Owens wasn’t even good enough to be on WrestleMania. Rollins says Owens can’t beat him on his worst day. WrestleMania is never his worst day. Under pressure, he becomes a god. Rollins says Owens doesn’t stand a chance and walks off.

Time to replay another classic match. Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans. Here’s my recap from 2018:

Smackdown Women’s Championship Match
Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Asuka

Charlotte Flair comes out to her father’s theme song of “Also sprach Zarathusta” while sitting on a throne. Royal guards escort her down the stairs. She’s wearing a robe and spins around like her father did. Asuka’s mask is bedazzled. They do the announcements in the ring to give this a big fight feel.

The bell rings, and they circle the ring before locking up. Flair wrenches the arm, but Asuka gets out and takes her down.

Winner by Submission and still Smackdown Women’s Champion: Charlotte Flair

Charly Caruso asks Charlotte Flair what it was like to relive that match. Flair says it was inspiring. For Rhea Ripley, it must have been terrifying. Flair beat Asuka’s undefeated streak, she retired the Divas Championship, and was one of the first women to main event WrestleMania. Ripley should watch her legacy matches. Woo!

We’ll hear from Randy Orton, next.

-Commercial Break-

Randy Orton comes out to the stage. Over the last few months, he’s done and said things that have been misunderstood. It all came from a place of love, but it’s been seen and taken as an act of brutality and violence. Orton is talking to Edge. He is here to respond to his challenge from last week, but he wants to get something off his chest. Orton needs to apologize. Three weeks ago, he lied to Beth Phoenix when he said that Edge is a junkie for the roar of the crowd. Edge isn’t that. Edge is a junkie for his own ego. Adam Copeland is a junkie for Edge.

Edge did say something last week that rang true. Orton never had to pay his dues for his opportunity. Orton was handed an opportunity because of what his last name is. Just because he was handed an opportunity, that doesn’t guarantee a Hall of Fame career. One year after he was called up to the main roster, he won the Intercontinental Champion. A year after that, he became the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in history.

Edge thinks Mick Foley passed the torch to them. Foley didn’t pass him anything. Foley slammed him in thumbtacks, so he beat him, spat in his face, and took the torch. Orton went from a third-generation prospect to the three most deadly letters in sports-entertainment. Edge says Orton doesn’t have grit, but that’s wrong. Grit isn’t sitting on the couch for nine years asking “what if.” Grit to Orton is longevity in an industry that seldom has any. Grit is being the one constant in the locker room. Orton looks around and doens’t see anyone that has accomplished near what he has accomplished. Nobody has as much grit as him, including Edge. Edge calls him an entitled brat, but isn’t Edge the ultimate opportunist? Edge wouldn’t have done the same thing if Triple H offered him to join Evolution? Everything he said the last few months, he’s done it because he loves Edge, his family, and daughters. That’s why he sent their father back home.

Edge challenged him to a Last Man Standing match at WrestleMania last week. Orton says, “Edge, you may be writing the story, but at WrestleMania I’m going to write the last chapter and end it. I accept.” Orton’s music plays as the show comes to an end.
