We start off this week’s show with a look back at the Undertaker’s return to Raw to explain why he did what he did at Battleground.

We are in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and your announcers are Michael Cole, John Layfield, and Byron Saxton.

We start off with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon accompanied by the WWE World Champion Seth Rollins.

Hunter welcomes everyone to Raw. He says it will be a huge night and it will start off with a massive announcement. In a few weeks, it will be SummerSlam. This year’s SummerSlam will be bigger than ever. That means that three hours just isn’t going to cut it. Live on the WWE Network, SummerSlam will be a four hour event.

Stephanie says the main event will be seventeen months in the making. The Undertaker will return for vengeance against the man who broke the unbreakable streak, Brock Lesnar.

Hunter says tonight will be a night of firsts. For the first time, The Big Show will face Dean Ambrose. Stephanie says that Paige will face Sasha Banks. Hunter says Kevin Owens will face Randy Orton. Stephanie tells us Alicia Fox and Nikki Bella will face Becky Lynch and Charlotte.

Seth says he is all fired up, but if you want to talk about firsts. He is the first man who ever cashed in the Money in the Bank contract in the main event of Wrestlemania to beat Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar in the same night. Seth points out that for the first time, at Battleground, he went one on one with Brock Lesnar, and he did what he said he would do. He walked in as WWE Champion and he walked out as WWE Champion.

Seth says to cap off this night of firsts, we need to involve all of you. For the first time ever, Seth says that he wants everyone to stand up and admit that he will go down as one of, if not the greatest WWE Champion of all time.

Before the people can do what Seth wanted, John Cena’s music plays and he makes his way to the stage and then he walks to the ring.

John says he does not mean to interrupt Stephanie and Hunter, but he means to interrupt Seth because he is an arrogant jackass. With all of the Hall of Famers who held that title, you claim to be the greatest? John says that you are a joke. We need to find out who is telling the truth. John says he is not going to ask Seth to do a damn thing about it because last week, he asked Seth and Seth tucked tail like a yellow bellied coward.

John says that tonight is a night of first time ever. He says that you know what is best for business. We need to see for the first time if Seth Rollins can be a man. John wants a match between him and Seth Rollins . . . for the WWE World Title.

Seth tells John to do everyone a favor and shut the hell up. This is not your little US Championship. This is THE WWE World Championship. You have to earn your title match.

Stephanie interrupts and she tells Seth that we need to put it to the people. Stephanie wants to know if you want to see John Cena versus Seth Rollins for the WWE Championship.

Stephanie says NO. She is saying no to John Cena and the people who wanted to see a World Title match. Stephanie says that Seth is right, you have to earn it.

Hunter says that he gets that, but Hunter says that he can speak for everyone that they don’t want to see the WWE Championship defended on Raw. The idea is valid so tonight it will be John Cena versus Seth Rollins, but it will be for John’s United States Championship. Hunter says that is what is best for business.

We go to commercial.
