WWE RAW REPORT: SHANE AND TAKER, HHH IN ACTION, TAG TITLE MATCH, DEAN AND BROCK, CHALLENGES MADE FOR WRESTLEMANIA, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-03-14 23:05:00

We are back and Stephanie McMahon makes her way to the ring.

Stephanie welcomes everyone to Raw (at 8:54) and she complains about the fans booing her announcement.  Stephanie introduces the man who handily defeated Dean Ambrose at Roadblock and will defeat Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania . . . Triple H.

Hunter says on Saturday, live on the WWE Network, the whole world watched Roadblock with hope in their eyes that Dean Ambrose would be the one to stand up to the Authority and be the one to become the WWE World Champion.  Then he failed and Hunter says he beat Dean Ambrose.  He says the Authority always wins.  Hope is not a strategy.  It is a dangerous commodity.  Hope is how all of you live your lives.  That is why they relate to Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns.  They hope that they are going to be the one to end the reign of the Authority. 

You come out of high school full of hope that your life will change.  Then you get a job, get married, and have kids.  Then it starts.  You hope and that is all you do.  You hope you get the raise or promotion.  You blame your boss and the authority above you.  You never blame yourself.  You go about your life day after day and don't complain.  You go home to your wife who hates you because you are a failure.  Your kids don't respect you because you are a failure.  You hang out with your friends and you complain about your boss because it is not your fault.  

You keep going to your job that you hate and put up with the boss that you hate.  Your biggest hope is that you win the Lotto and thinks get better but it doesn't.  Thirty years later, maybe you get a watch or a clock.  You go home to your apartment because your wife left you and took the house.  The kids don't stop by because you are still a loser.  You are at home drooling and hope that mercifully this will all be over soon.  It is pathetic.  That is why you love people like Dean Ambrose.  He gives you hope.  That is why you love Roman Reigns.  Maybe he will be the hope who will rise up against the Authority and he will be the one to become the WWE World Champion.  

Hunter says that Roman will fail.  Hunter says he will beat Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania.  Time and time again, he has said that the Authority always wins.

Dolph Ziggler makes his way to the ring.

Stephanie calls Dolph a failure and Dolph says that was a good one.

Dolph says he was in the back listening and he could not take it anymore about people knowing that they need to understand his place.  Dolph says his place is right here busting his ass for everyone.

Stephanie says that Dolph is very Cena-esque with his pandering.  She says that Dolph is good, but not that good.

Dolph asks Stephanie is going to dare to fire him?  How many times can they do that?  Deep down inside, after being threatened with being fired, you realize there is nothing left to lose.  He says he will not quit.  He cannot take hearing Hunter running down the people.  He says that him and Dean Ambrose are not failures.  They were screwed by the System . . . your system.  He had to say it.  You can fire him, but he is not going to go away.

Hunter says they are not going to fire Dolph because that is not good for business.  They see the big picture and see that the people love Dolph Ziggler.  It is because he is a lovable loser like all of you so you can relate.  He says that you don't have to be a loser.  You are good . . . really good.  You could be great but you don't have the right people backing you up and giving you advice, you can get everything you want in life.

Dolph says he would not side with you or your egotistical, tyrannical, idiot wife if it was the last thing he could do.  

Stephanie slaps Dolph and she says she will give you hope.  Do you want a match at Wrestlemania?  You can have any match except for the WWE World Title Match, but you need to win one match tonight.  You will have the hope but it will be yanked out from under you.  You are not going to win, Stephanie says she will break his spirits until he is a shell of a man.

Dolph says he does not care what type of match it is, he will take it.

Stephanie says you will go one on one with Triple H.
