The show begins with a graphic In Memory of Gene Okerlund.

We are in Orlando, Florida and your announcers are Michael Cole, Renee Young, and Corey Graves.

We see Bobby Lashley being held back by a number of wrestlers as he goes after Seth Rollins.

They fight onto the stage and more officials separate them until Rollins knocks Lashley off the apron with a forearm.  They continue to battle on the floor next to the stage.  They are finally separated and taken to the back.

John Cena makes his way to the ring.

John welcomes everyone to Orlando and Raw.  He says that this is the Road to Wrestlemania.  John says that is why Seth and Bobby are fighting like that.  John says this is when you step up or get left out.  John says he does not want to be left out again.  John says there is one match where anyone can grab that golden ticket.  A golden ticket to the grandest stage of them all.  That is the Royal Rumble.  John says he plans on earning that golden ticket.  John says he is entering himself in the Royal Rumble.

Drew McIntyre interrupts Cena and he says he has waited for this moment for years.  Unlike everyone else, he does not care who you share your bed with or who you don't.  He does not care about John's hair.  What he cares about is his sixteen World Championships.  He cares that John has main evented multiple Wrestlemanias.  He cares that Vince called you the greatest of all time.  Drew says he agrees with Vince.  John Cena, you are the greatest of all time.

Drew says he has a history of taking out the greats.  You can ask The Shield, but he dismantled them by himself.  You can ask Dolph Ziggler, but he was beaten in a steel cage match.  You can ask his friend Kurt Angle, who Drew humiliated and made tap out to his own ankle lock.  Drew says he is the most dangerous man in WWE.  Drew says he has come for John.  

John says he was feeling pretty good and then this.  John says he is sad.  What is sad about this is that he has heard the same thing every week from practically every Superstar so much that he had to leave so people could come up with a different promo.  What makes you any different than anyone else.  

Drew says they were all talk but he will show John.

Drew comes to the ring and John is ready for a fight.

Lio Rush comes out and says that Seth Rollins has gone crazy.  He attacked them last week with a steel chair.  He attacked them backstage.  If Seth Rollins does not stop, they are going to get a lawyer.  Lio says this show is officially canceled until . . . 

Seth Rollins attacks Lashley from behind and they continue their battle on the ramp.  Dean Ambrose comes out and Cena goes after Ambrose.  Drew sends Cena into the apron and Cena fights back.  Ambrose and Drew punch Cena while Lashley chokes Rollins.

Finn Balor's music plays and he hits slingblade on Drew and clotheslines him over the top rope to the floor.  Balor with a plancha as we go to commercial.
