WWE RAW REPORT: ANY ROADBLOCKS ON THE PATH TO ROADBLOCK?, HOW ABOUT THOSE Y2AJ SHIRT SALES?, WHO WILL BE THE X FACTOR IN THE LANA/BRIE SITUATION?, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-03-07 23:01:00

We are now less than three weeks from Wrestlemania 32 and things should heat up tonight when Shane McMahon returns to Raw after last week’s response by the Undertaker about the Hell in a Cell Match at Wrestlemania.  Who will be the WWE Tag Team Champions after Chris Jericho and AJ Styles get their chance to face The New Day?

We are in Rosemont, Illinois and your announcers are Michael Cole, John Layfield, and Byron Saxton.

Shane McMahon's music plays and he makes his way to the ring doing the Shane-O Shuffle many times on the way.

Shane thanks everyone and he says he misses you guys.  Shane wants to know what is up in Chicago.  He wants to take it back to last Monday.  He says he was watching Raw with his three sons and he hears from his opponent the Undertaker, who he has the utmost respect for.

Then he heard from Vince McMahon and he says that after what Vince said, he lost a lot of respect for him.  He mentions what Vince said.  Shane told his kids that they should give Vince a Father of the Year award.  Shane says that Vince is an egomaniacal, miserable, old bastard and you have lost your touch.  You lost your touch with your business, with your fanbase, and with reality.  You lost your touch with your family and your grandsons.  

Shane says that just gets him hot and pissed off.  Shane says it is his destiny to be in control of Raw.  Shane says it is all going to stop.  The Chairman's tyrannical grasp on everything stops.  The Authority stops.  The backstabbing and backstage politics will stop because that is choking the life out of the business.  

There are so many people who have all the talent but get none of the breaks while there are people who have all of the breaks but none of the talent.

Shane says he will beat the Undertaker and there will be a new legacy when he walks out the next night in charge of Raw.

The gong sounds and the lights go out.  Vince McMahon comes out doing his best Connor McGregor imitation.  

Vince asks the people if they were disappointed that they did not see the Undertaker come out and disembowel Shane.  Did you see the look on Shane's face?

Vince embraces the chants from the crowd and he wants to know if that is it.

Shane had a look of fear on his face as the crowd starts the chant you expected from Chicago.  Vince says that the look of fear is justified because of the way you react to being in the ring with the Undertaker.  

Vince says that he would like to have a Father/son conversation.  Vince tells Shane that Stephanie gets everything.  Vince says that he saw a photo of him with Shane when Shane was younger for Shane's first wrestling match.  Vince shows the photo and he says that since last week when he said Shane was no longer his son . . . 

Vince drops the photo and stomps on the frame.  He says that we won't need that any more.  You grew up knowing that your dad could do no wrong and that he was invincible.  Vince says that Shane felt the same way, but you are not Vince McMahon, you are just Vince's son.

Vince talks about his grandsons.  They are going to see their father fail them at Wrestlemania.  They will so disappointed because your dreams will be shattered, as well as theirs.  When you are put on the gurney to the ambulance, Vince will put his arms around them and he will tell them they have one father figure they can be proud of.

Vince says it is ironic that his greatest creation will put to rest his greatest failure.

Vince wants Security to come out and escort Shane out of the building.

Shane tells security to stop and he will walk out peacefully on his own accord.  Shane says he is amped up so you might not want to touch him.

Vince tells security to get him out of the ring and one member of security comes into the ring and he tries to grab Shane, but he takes his time doing it. 

Shane with a series of punches and knees to the first member of security.  Another member of security comes out and Shane takes care of him too.

Shane walks to the back looking at the carnage he created.

Kevin Owens walks in the back as we go to commercial.
