Out comes Rey Mysterio to the ring to kick off the show!
Corey Graves mentions on commentary that due to flight issues, several WWE superstars are late and have yet to arrive to the show.
Rey gets in the ring and welcomes everyone to Raw. He says it has been a crazy year for him as the fans chant “Rey”. He says he had a lot of ups and a lot of downs. But last week should have bene a dream come true when he got inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. And on top of that to compete at WrestleMania. But instead of ended up facing his own son. Rey tells Dom he wanted things to be different and as he is talking, out comes Dominik.
He tells Rey to keep his name out of his mouth. He is sick and tired of hearing about what Rey wants, he makes things about himself. As he is talking, the fans are really booing him, very loudly. He tells Rey that Rey never cared about him and he is better off with his real family, the Judgment Day.
Rey calls the Judgment Day selfish idiots who are just using Dominik. But Dominik tells Rey that Rey is using him. He says he would have gotten the win at WrestleMania had it not been for Bad Bunny who screwed him over to help Rey get the win. Dominik tells Rey that he is using Bad bunny just like he used him. We see footage of WrestleMania from their match when Bad Bunny got involved. We also see a clip of last Monday where Austin Theory got the win against Rey and the Judgment Day would beat up on Rey. They also show Bad Bunny getting attacked and slammed through the table.
Back in the arena, the fans boo Dominik as he says Bad Bunny makes a lot of good songs but when Damian put him through the table, that was music to his ears. But he hopes Bad Bunny learned his lesson and doesn’t stick his nose in the Judgment Day’s business. Rey says he spoke to Bad Bunny last night who told him he will be back. Rey tells Dominik that he and the rest of the Judgment Day will regret putting their hands on him. Dominik says it’s more empty words from a deadbeat dad. Instead of worrying about Bad Bunny, he should worry about what the Judgment Day will do to him.
Rey tells him to cut the crap, when is he going to man up and take care of things on his own. He tells Dominik he doesn’t believe him but he didn’t want to fight him at WrestleMania. And he seems like a lost cause. He tells Dominik to step in the ring, have a WrestleMania rematch right here in Seattle. The fans cheer as Dominik tells him he doesn’t want to fight his own father. But he knows who will and out comes Finn Balor to the ring.

We cut backstage and see Cody Rhodes walking.
Cody Rhodes walks down to the ring to a big pop. He asks Seattle what they want to talk about. When he came back, he was talking about Seth Rollins, after that his peck, after that the Royal Rumble and after that was WrestleMania and finishing the story. After last week, it feels a little cloudy.
Rhodes says at WrestleMania, under the brightest lights, in the main event, he lost. He lost to the Tribal Chief, to the Champion Roman Reigns. He says they should all blame him, he lost. He did not calculate, not just for Roman Reigns but to the lengths that Roman would go. He apologises for losing. Cody says he heard two things, one of them was from his friend Matt. He said being in the main event is a win in itself. In this point in his career, do wins and losses matter? Cody says of course it does. The only one’s who say they don’t are Hall of Famers, people who have finished their stories.
The other thing he heard was something Mr. Heyman said. If he is ever to challenge for the Championship ever again, he has to earn it. Cody says that basically refutes, dismisses his entire life. Cody says earn it, he is it. And now their unfinished tale has a whole new wrinkle to it and that is Brock Lesnar.
Rodes says what is more embarrassing than laying their surrounded by 80,000 people and a rubber chicken next to his head and not the two titles is waking up the next day and going to work. Looking for a rematch and when not granted that, you offer up your innocence and the beast repays it in destruction. Cody tells them to tell him why. Cody says he heard on SmackDown that Brock was unhappy about his place at WrestleMania. And that he can almost understand.
He says the other thing, his theory, is that Lesnar is uncertain about him. About the hype, the change he brought to WWE. Why else would Brock wait until his back was turned. But if you’re Brock and he knows he is listening, why would he ever be uncertain. When Lesnar looks in the mirror, he sees a predator, a former NCAA champion, a former UFC, WWE champion. He says Lesnar is a Hall of Famer in both companies. When he was a rookie, he looked at The Rock and saw a victim. Cena, Randy Couture, the Undertaker and saw victim. He asks Lesnar if that is what he sees when he looks at Cody, a victim.
Cody says to be honest, he is scared of Brock Lesnar. He would be crazy not to be scared of Lesnar. But he still wants to fight Brock Lesnar. He is so scared of Lesnar and what happened last week that when he blinks, he will strikes. He wants to make sure he leaves no opportunity behind. That when Lesnar looks in the mirror, he doesn’t see a predator, for the first time he sees a prey, a victim and that is Cody’s victim.
It can be anywhere, anytime, any place. But he knows Lesnar is not in Seattle. Cody challenges him to a match at WrestleMania Backlash. And to answer the call as he throws the microphone away.
