By Richard Trionfo on 2019-03-04 23:00:00

We are in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and your announcers are Michael Cole, Renee Young, and Corey Graves.

Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

We see Roman's comments from last week.

Roman says last week in Atlanta was the comeback.  This week in Philly, we take our yard back.  Roman says he got to think about his future and what he wants.  He wants the one man standing in his way.  That man is Seth Rollins.  Roman says to get what he wants, he wants to address things with Seth so he asks for Seth to come out.

Seth Rollins' music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Seth says seeing Roman in the ring talking about winning the biggest fight of his life meant a lot to him.  Seth says he is going to take that motivation and take it to Wrestlemania and slay the beast.  He is going to bring the Universal Title back where it belongs . . . on Raw every single week.  Seth says he knows where Roman's head is at.  He understands what it is like to vacate a title without losing it.  If there is anyone who deserves an opportunity against Brock as much as he does, it is Roman.  Seth says he wants to talk about this.

Roman says he thought Seth knew everything, but Seth is wrong.  Roman says when he was gone, one person watched over this place.  It was Seth Rollins.  One person kept this place in line and knew what was best.  Roman says he has confidence in Seth and he knows what it takes to win that title and he knows that Seth can do it.  Roman wishes Seth good luck at Wrestlemania.

Roman has a but and he asks for a favor from Seth.  Seth says he will do anything for Roman.  Roman says he wants to get the band back together one last time.  Seth says anything but that.  After what Ambrose did on the night he did it, no way.  Roman says he thought he was going to get him right away, but he has to sell Seth on it.  Roman says he wants it and he asks the crowd if they want it.  Roman says tomorrow is not guaranteed and life is short.  The most important things are the relationships they have.  They are brothers.  Roman says he does not know if Dean is coming or going but he wants one more time with his brothers.

Seth thinks about it and he says he put that part of his life behind him, but you are right.  Life is too short.  Tomorrow is not guaranteed.  If you want the Shield one more time, then he is in for Roman.

Roman wants Dean Ambrose to come out to finish the deal.

Dean Ambrose's music plays and he makes his way onto the stage.  Dean paces around and he is hit from behind by Elias and goes to the back.

Dean does not want Seth or Roman's help and he goes to the back.

Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre, and Lio Rush are in the back and they are asked about Elias' attack on Dean Ambrose.

Drew says he broke the Shield months ago.  What that was was three pathetic individuals living in the past.  Baron says they are going to be facing Braun Strowman, Kurt Angle, and Finn Balor and they will show where there power lies.  Bobby says that Finn is on borrowed time with his Intercontinental Title.  Baron says that he is tired of embarrassing Kurt Angle and he will show that Kurt cannot hang with the premier athletes of today.
