WWE Raw Pre-Show (From The WWE Network)
We're 34 nights away from WrestleMania. Josh Matthews, Booker T, Alex Riley and Hacksaw Jim Duggan are on the panel tonight. Booker T is looking forward to the Shield vs. Wyatts rematch.
The Usos get a tag team title shot tonight against the New Age Outlaws.
The panel discusses the importance of getting on the WrestleMania card, and the big payday that the wrestlers want. Booker says sometimes you have to step on some toes, as we hear the first CM Punk chant of the broadcast.
We get highlights from last week when Daniel Bryan confronted the Authority.
Renee Young interviewed Bryan earlier today as he and Brie arrived at the arena. Bryan will be facing Batista tonight, and he says he will fight who ever they put in front of him. Batista mocked the 195 pound guys as not real men, but tonight, he will show him what a real man is, and that isn't a jacked up, 245 pound, movie star wanna be.
Highlights of Batista's promo from Smackdown.
Riley says that Batista defeated Ziggler on Smackdown quickly, and because Bryan and Ziggler are similar in size, he will do the same to Bryan tonight. We get another CM Punk chant.
We get a video package for the Shield vs. Wyatts rematch.
The panel hypes the rematch for tonight on Raw, and the fact that the Wyatts seem to have the Shield's number.
Highlights of the Wyatt Family's attack on John Cena from last week.
John Cena is expected to address the WWE Universe in regards to his injury. They discuss Cena not wanting an MRI, and his ability to come back quickly from injury.
Matthews says they are in CM Punk's hometown of Chicago, but that Punk has not been seen since the Royal Rumble PPV.
Matthews hypes last week's NXT Arrival special, which if you missed it, was really good.
Riley says that the special was great, and that they made history by putting on the first live special on NXT. Booker T puts over Adrian Neville, and how he saw him five years ago and is so proud to see where he is today.
Renee Young interviews the Outlaws. They are wearing WM 30 jerseys, and discuss their match for tonight. Road Dogg wants to know how many times they have to defend the titles. They are fighting champions. The Usos snuck one by them last week, and tonight, they will put those young boys down. They run down the Usos, and call Renee Tanya.
Booker T says the Usos are younger, faster and motivated. Booker believes that they are future tag team champions.
We see highlights from the Superstars tapings, where Los Matadores defeated Ryback and Curtis Axel.
Jerry Lawler interviews Los Matadores. They say Lawler and Torito are alike. Why? Because Torito is horny. Lawler then says he felt that Axel and Ryback would win, and the Matadores say they love to be the under dogs. They are the greatest team of the tag, and maybe next time they talk, they will be WWE Tag Team Champion. Lawler says he loves both bulls and puppies.
Renee Young tries to get a word with Lesnar. Paul Heyman is there and wants to know what she knows. Heyman says Lesnar has a lot to say, but not right now, and blocks the door from Young. He then compliments her dress and goes into the locker room.
Cult of Personality hits and the crowd is very happy to hear the music as they start a loud CM Punk chant, but Paul Heyman makes his way out to jeers. The crowd cheers for Punk, and Heyman says Punk deserves louder than that. The crowd gets louder cheering for Punk, and Heyman then sits Indian style center ring. He came here tonight to tell the story of a Paul Heyman guy. A Paul Heyman guy that was never truly wanted in WWE. A Paul Heyman guy that "they thought" was too small to main event WrestleMania. A Paul Heyman guy that didn't have the right corporate look, had too many tattoos, and a guy that would rebel against the system, the Authority, against the first family so much that they didn't want him since day one, and they don't want him right now. He came here to tell the story of a Paul Heyman guy who had the balls to say what no one else had too. He came here tonight o talk about a Paul Heyman guy that was born and raised in Chicago. He is Paul Heyman, and ladies and gentleman, this is his pipe bomb about CM Punk; who is not here this evening. Here is the biggest part of his pipe bomb (more Punk chants) if you're looking for him to disagree, he doesn't. No one is more upset about not getting to see Punk tonight than him. If Punk was here, he would be showing that he is the best in the world. So what happened? Why isn't Pun here tonight? Why won't anyone talk about him anymore? There is someone to hold accountable as to why Punk wouldn't put up with it anymore. And tonight, in this very ring, he will point the blame for Punk not being here at every single one of you! You can boo him all you want, the truth hurts, doesn't it? This is why he found it so much easier to lie, because people accept that so much better. When CM Punk was with him, Punk was the longest reigning WWE Champion in 25 years. And then, then you took him away from Heyman. You made Punk your hero. You wanted to give him your love, affection, respect and affirmation. And where did it get you? You took Punk from Heyman and from yourselves. He also blames the Undertaker. This all started at WM 29 when Punk couldn't beat the streak, and the downward spiral started there, and now, Heyman wants revenge. And how will he do that? How do you kill what is already dead? He wants to see the streak taken away from the Undertaker, and only one man can do that, he wants the streak beaten, Undertaker stripped of his streak, and he wants it conquered. Only one man can do that, and that is his friend and the beat incarnate, BROCK LESANR!
Lesnar makes his way to the ring, right hand taped up due to last week's stabbing via pen. Heyman shows what Taker did to Lesnar last week on Raw. We get more Punk chants as Lesnar grabs the mic. He says unlike some people he doesn't make claims he cannot back up. Taker attacked him last week, because he believes in his heart that Taker is afraid of him. Many a foe have tried to take out the streak, and they have all failed. HBK, HHH, and CM Punk; failures. At WM 30, the streak will be conquered by BROCK LESNAR!
As Heyman and Lesnar start to leave, Mark Henry makes his way out, looking for some revenge. Shit just got real. Lesnar charges, but eats a big right by Henry. Lesnar then whips Henry into the steps, and then picks up part of the steps and lays out Henry with them. Lesnar then dismantles the announce table (I think a monitor bounced into the crowd) and delivers the F5 through the table.
Road Dogg says that Chicago is not worthy of hearing his catch phrases, and refuses to do the Outlaws intro.
Jey and Dog to begin. Punk chants as Dogg slams Jey to the corner, turning him inside out, and covers for 2. Jey rolls to the floor, selling his leg. Gunn lays the boots to him, rolls him back in and rights follow. Tag to Dogg, boot to Jey. To the corner, rights follow, but Jey now battles back with rights of his own. To the corner, reversal, clothesline by Dogg. Dogg slams Jey to the corner, lays in the boots and then tosses him over the top and to the floor.

Dogg continues the beat down, Jey with rights, and then lands a jumping spinkick and BOTH men are down. Tag to Jimmy, he cleans house, tosses Dogg to the floor. Rights to Gunn, sidekick to Gunn, uppercut follows. Off the ropes, knocks Dogg to the floor and then gets a Samoan drop on Gunn. Full nelson slam to Dogg.

Batista vs. Daniel Bryan is next!
Bryan makes his way to the ring to a huge ovation. He says the people of Chicago understand that they have a voice, and that they have a voice. And tonight, they will hijack Raw! He will not leave this ring until one of two things happen. We get Punk chants, and Bryan smiles. He will not leave until Batista comes down to fight, or until Triple H comes down here to answer his challenge. Last week he challenged Triple H for WrestleMania and was turned down. He goes to explain and Triple H appears along with Stephanie. The crowd chants for Punk of course. Stephanie says she admires his tenacity after all of his losses. She says after that she would be embarrassed, not hijacking the show. Bryan tells Triple H that he will not let this rest, he has been beaten and screwed, and every time he gets a shot at the title, the Shield, a screwy ref, Kane or even Triple H have al kept him from the title. He is still her, unbroken and with the people behind him. And he is stronger than ever, so Triple H, what about you vs. me at WrestleMania 30. Triple H chuckles and says it will not happen, and asks what is it with this generation. Why can you not accept your failures and inadequacies? This is an era full of excuses. If they don't make it, they never say they weren't good enough, instead they blame everyone else. They held me down, they screwed me, they buried me. The reality is, anyone that has ever failed here, it is because they were not good enough. That is the reality, your reality is that you are a B+ player, and while that angers people, B+ is pretty damn good. It's a good spot for you. But understand this, it will take more than you to get him to lace up his boots at WrestleMania. Asshole chants now. Bryan says that the people understand, and can see through your lies, that is why they chant. Because you say what is best for business and for the WWE Universe, but you don't listen. You don't listen for their desire to see people like him succeed. And the only way you will ever get to see that is if he beats the crap out of Triple H and do it at WrestleMania. Stephanie says he is compelling, and why would they listen to the people and the sea of inadequacy. She has been here for a while, and they will turn on him on a dime. The only people that won't are her and Triple H. She knows this is intoxicating to hear the chants, it goes to your head, especially considering where he came from. But if you think about it, without her family, he would have nothing. 21 trucks arrived to the arena today to make this place look like this, everything they do is for him ,provided by him. Without them he wouldn't have his shirts, the chants of his underdog persona; they made him. Bryan says her delusions of self-importance is laughable. Maybe she can wear the trunks and Triple H can wear the skirt and they can wrestle why he watches. Triple H says Stephanie would whip his ass. Also, it just won't happen. He says that this sounds like grade school, but he will not take the bait. Your little match at WM is not gonna happen fells, ok, get over it. WM is the showcase of the immortals, and this, you do not measure up. Now, get out of my ring. Bryan refuses and says it is not his ring. Stephanie says it is, and Bryan says it is the fans' ring. Triple H says that everything in this arena right now, including Bryan and the fans, belongs to he and Stephanie. He says to get the hell out of his ring. Bryan says to make him. Stephanie calls out Kane, and Bryan hits a suicide dive and wipes him out. Stephanie then calls for security and we get referees out to try and stop Bryan. Security arrives to pull Bryan off of Kane. More Punk chants. Security makes the wall so Bryan cannot get back to the ring as we get Daniel Bryan chants.
The pre/post show panel appears to talk about the show.
A sports car pulls into the arena, and Aaron Paul delivers Dolph Ziggler to the arena.

Big E pulling double duty tonight. Right as the bell sounds Cesaro hits the ring and hits the neutralizer on Big E.
OFFICIAL RESULT: Big E @ :03 via DQ
Swagger and Cesaro argue post match, and Cesaro says they are even. Swagger shoves Cesaro, and Cesaro double legs him and looks for the swing. Zeb tells him to be a real American and not do it, don't listen to the fans, don't do it to your brother. For the sake of the people don't do it. Cesaro stops and Colter says to help your brother up. Cesaro helps him up and Colter says to put it behind them and separate. He wants them to hug it out right here and now. We're brothers and real Americans, so do it. They hug awkwardly, and Colter wants them to pose and proclaim we the people. They do, but there is tension there.
John Cena talky time is next.
Added to tomorrow night's WWE Main Event is Daniel Bryan vs. Kane.
John Cena now makes his way out to the ring, with his left knee heavily taped and he is limping, hooray for selling the injury. The crowd chants for Punk and Cena thanks them for the warm welcome. Last week he was injured by the Wyatt Family, and due to doctor's orders he cannot have a match tonight. The crowd likes that. Cena jokes about the crowd reaction, but says that while he cannot compete, he wanted to come out here. More Punk chants. Cena says that he wanted to hear the energy and passion of an entire city. He says this building has always been special, he wrestled at WM here, Lesnar kicked his ass here, and he had a special moment at a MITB with a special someone. He has gone at it with this crowd and they haven't always seen eye to ye, but he respects this city. While they may boo him out of am arena, he always hears you, knows they are honest and that they are loud. He has listened tonight and this whole hijack business, you guys want change. He respects that, but you have to know that success is earned and change will go through him. If Wyatt thinks he is in the driver's seat, he is dead wrong. He is John Cena, he has given the last 12-years of his life to the business, and he is in the same place where is crowd started, the All State Arena. He is standing tall right here.
They Wyatts appear on the screen and Wyatt says Cena is all alone, he has this empire built around him, but can you feel the people? Cena reminds him of a racehorse that has run for so long, winning and the crowd cheering. But one day he slows down and reality sets in. But now instead of looking for the finish line, he is in the back of a barn. How long can you fend us off, because mercy is calling you by name. I am the reaper, and I will put you down. Here's a little secret, he knows what Cena is afraid of, the loneliest man is the one sitting alone in his castle. What will be left when he takes it all? Follow the buzzards…
