It’s a special “Raw Reunion” show tonight from Dallas that will feature the likes of WWE Hall of Famers Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels, as well as Kevin Nash, X-Pac, Jimmy Hart, Billy Gunn, Ron Simmons and others. Seth Rollins better be looking over his shoulder for HW champ Brock Lesnar after curb-stomping him last week. Dean Ambrose will be back after getting dusted by Rusev last week. And Daniel Bryan must rematch Kane with his Royal Rumble title shot on the line. All this and more tonight!
Lesnar along with Paul Heyman open the show. As Heyman is about to go into his usual speech of who he is, Lesnar takes the mic and calls out Rollins. No response. Lesnar says when he shows up Rollins is nowhere to be found. HHH comes out instead. Lesnar asks HHH if he’s there to fix this or is he there to fight. Stephanie McMahon, Kane and Big Show come out and try to talk Brock down. Heyman is trying to tell Brock to be reasonable. Rollins appears on the Titantron and tells Brock to be patient, he’ll get his shot at Royal Rumble. John Cena comes out now to remind everyone all three of them will settle the score at Royal Rumble. Cena tells the Authority to up the ante and if he wins at Royal Rumble, give Ziggler, Ryback and Rowan their jobs back. HHH agrees, but Cena will have to fight tonight and if he wins, they will get their jobs back, and if he loses, he’s out of the Royal Rumble match. Fans can vote on the WWE app if they agree or not with HHH’s proposal, and the fans will decide Cena’s fate.
Former Royal Rumble winners Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and Sean Michaels are brought into the ring to talk about the upcoming event. They are asked their predictions and when they don’t pick Big Show he comes out to confront them. Big Show eventually goes at Flair and this brings Roman Reigns out who runs Big Show off.
NWO’s Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and X-Pac come to the ring but are interrupted by The Ascension. JBL and Ron Simmons of APA come out to confront the Ascension. Then the New Age Outlaws come out and they go after Viktor and Konor. JBL clotheslines one of them and that’s it.
HHH announces John Cena will face Seth Rollins, Big Show and Kane tonight in an effort to win back the jobs of Ryback, Ziggler and Rowan.
