WWE RAW REPORT: STIRRING THE POTS, IC TITLE MATCH, NEW MATCHES FOR FASTLANE, AND MATCHES FOR SMACKDOWN

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-02-15 23:03:00

We are back and Paul Heyman is in the ring.

Paul introduces himself and he reminds us that he is the advocate for the next Undisputed WWE Champion of the World BROCK LESNAR.  Paul says he says that with an awful lot of confidence.  On Sunday night, the WWE Network will offer you live coverage of the most historic Triple Threat Match.  Brock Lesnar versus Dean Ambrose versus Roman Reigns.  From that match, one beast will emerge victorious and main event Wrestlemania against Triple H for the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship of the World.

Paul says he does not want to flap his gums for the next few minutes with Roman Reigns watching in the back.  What he is going to say should be said eyeball to eyeball.  Paul calls out Mr. Samoan Badass . . . the Enforcer of the Shield because what he has to say needs to be said to his face.

Roman's music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Paul thanks Roman and shakes his hand.  He thanks Roman for allowing him to say it to Roman's face.  If he said it in the ring by himself, some people would say he is being disrespectful to Roman.  Paul says he has the utmost respect for Roman.  This Sunday night, you know that he feels that you cannot get by his beast Brock Lesnar.  Not you . . . not Dean Ambrose . . . not the two of you combined on Brock Lesnar.

Paul says that brings him to his point.  Your dream and what you pray for on the road every night is that you win on Sunday night to be able to go on to Wrestlemania to fight Triple H for the World Championship.  Then you win and you go home to your wife and daughter to say 'Daddy Did It' and that daddy is the Champion of the World.

Brock Lesnar stands in your way.  You have an equally huge challenge on your hands.  Dean Ambrose stands in your way as well.  That means that Sunday, you have a choice to make.  Your daughter or your best friend because you cannot have them both.  You cannot keep your promise to your daughter and your friendship with Dean Ambrose.

There are so many who choose friendship over family and those are the ones who end up in divorce court.  There are ones who choose family over friends and they are the ones who sit alone and stand in the ring at the end of the main event of Wrestlemania as the champion of the world.  

That is the sacrifice that you have to make for the life that you want to live.  Sunday night. Brock Lesnar stands in your way.  The enemy of your enemy is not your friend.  Brock Lesnar is your enemy on Sunday night . . . but so is Dean Ambrose.

Roman tells Paul that he is good.  Roman thanks Paul.  He says no one says what they are thinking right to someone's face.  He says that Paul had some good points.  Choices and paying the price.  He made choices a long time ago and that is why they are where they are.  They have no problems fighting each other.  Roman says that he beat Dean, but he has never beaten Brock.  However, he beat Brock's ass.  He will give Paul the opportunity to see it again on Sunday.

Roman says he has everything to lose, but he will win on Sunday and he will go to Wrestlemania to beat Triple H for the WWE World Championship.  Now he knows that Paul believes that.

They shake hands again.

Paul leaves the ring and Roman is attacked from behind by The Dudleys.  Reigns starts to fight back but Bubba stops Roman after Roman gives D-Von a head butt.  Bubba continues the attack until Dean Ambrose's music plays and the beating ceases.

Dean with a cross body to Bubba followed by punches to D-Von.  Reigns with a Superman punch to D-Von and officials stand between the Dudleys and the ring.

Dean and Roman fist bump in the ring and then Dean teases a double underhook DDT on Reigns but Reigns escapes.  Dean tells Roman that Wrestlemania's main event is on the line, there are no friendships.  Roman smiles and they fist bump again.

Next week, we will see the Vincent J. McMahon Legacy of Excellence Award.  Michael Cole says that no one has deserved that award until next week.

Michael reminds us about the Wyatt Family promo and their attack on Big Show.
