We are live for Monday Night Raw! We see a different graphic for instead of the one on the house show loop. Everyone is on the ramp with Hot Rod shirts, and we toll the bell ten times in honor of “Rowdy” Roddy Piper! Some fans have their hands over their hearts, and for one last time we hear the , I got goosebumps already so we know we will have an amazing night tonight.
We also see an amazing shot of a chair with Roddy’s name on it. of Piper’s Pit. I just want to say that Roddy has been an influence in my life and taught me to take crap from nobody, as a lot of us learned from that. If you want something, go take it! Of course there probably will be no footage from Hogan’s matches with him for obvious reasons. But I will say this, there would be no if not for Roddy Piper. We see the famous smashing of the coconut from Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka. The smoking of Mr. Downy at Mania, Speaking of Mania, Stone Cold on the pit! We do see some pictures of Hogan though throughout this package. And the infamous “I have come here to kick ass and chew bubblegum! And I’m all out of gum!” line from They Live. So many moments, so little time. God bless you Roddy and I’ll see you on the other side.
We get mixed Rowdy and Roddy chants and we now go into the regular intro and pyro. We are live from San Jose, . We have a six man tag for tonight, Randy Orton, Roman Reigns & vs Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper & the MITB holder, Sheamus. As well as the return of Brock Lesnar, but we kick things off with the Undisputed Champion, Seth Rollins and his new “Never Shut Up” shirt. I love it, we have Michael Cole, JBL & Byron Saxton on commentary for tonight as we see the breaking of the nose of ! Seth has the mic and says there is only one person that can slow me down, and that person is named Seth Rollins! In all seriousness and I’ve had a problem and I know it,. And look no further to when I put my knee into John Cena’s nose, if a picture is worth a thousand words, this video is priceless. We see the knee that broke the nose of Cena, and now we see it in slow-motion! And if you can see the pinpoint of the knee right there! We get a thank you Rollins chant! I love it! Seth says it was disgusting, I felt John Cena’s nose crack on my knee. I heard the pop when it shattered, and at first I didn’t feel bad, that kind of thing happens in a WWE ring.John Cena’s face won’t be the first I smashed and it won’t be the last. But it is the first time I broke the face that run the place, but then mothers and children, please shield your childrens eyes. Because John turned and this was what faced me. I will admit, that nose is almost Barrett worthy. I mean who wouldn’t feel sympathy for a face like that. I knew we had to do the right thing, we had to stop the match and award me the US Championship. John wanted to finish the fight, and the referee was not sympathetic as I am and I let my guard down and I promise you, that will never, ever happen again! So I got a proposition for you, John Cena. I know you’re nursing your wounds and looking like a Picasso painting, but how about we do it one more time? John Cena vs Seth Rollins, one on one, title for title! Winner take all at the four hour extraveganza on the WWE Network, SummerSlam! And John, if you don’t have the grapefruits to show up at SummerSlam, then maybe you can forfiet your US title to me. But for the first time ever, someone will hold the United States and Undisputed Championships, at the same time! Now I digress, for tonight, San Jose is the place to be. I mean, not because of you guys, but because of me. The champ is in the house, and lets not forget, this is where I won my Undisputed Championship at , and this is the sight, of John Cena’s first ever Open Challenge. So anything John can do, I can do better. So for the first time ever, we will have an Undisputed Championship Open Challenge! And that’s going to start..right now! So if you want some, come get some, who’s it gonna be? Because the champ is here! This will happen next! I love it Maggle!

He says Undertaker will never rest in peace because he cannot live with himself that he cannot, and will never beat Brock Lesnar, in what is now 22-1 of the undefeated streak at WrestleMania! Ladies and gentleman, Brock Lesnar! And here comes Brock Lesnar! Brock is circling the ring and makes Michael Cole stand up as he continues to circle the ring. Brock has taken the steps and tossed them into the ring! Flipping them over as we get a Suplex City chant. He stands on top of the steps, Heyman continues to say that the last time the WWE sanctioned a match between Brock and Taker, the Undertaker had to leave with an ambulance. Heyman brings us a rare look behind closed doors, as Taker called Vince McMahon and begged him for a rematch at WrestleMania 31, but Vince denied this from happening, so Taker had to play the WWE’s hand, so this is the match that is too big for WrestleMania! It is the rematch of now, and forever! Because my client will stamp the repeat, in eat, sleep, conquer, repeat! Because you are going to Suplex City! Last time Undertaker you needed an ambulance, a stretcher and a year to recover! Heyman then says something in Latin and says Amen, because you will rest and peace and will be facing my Beast, your Conqueror! Brock Lesnar!
