On Saturday night, Dean Ambrose had a chance to make the plans for Wrestlemania go up in smoke.  There was one man who could stop that and that man was Triple H.  He was able to defeat Dean Ambrose to retain the WWE World Championship and keep the Roman Reigns versus Triple H match for the WWE Championship.

We are in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and your announcers are John Layfield, Michael Cole, and Byron Saxton.

The New Day makes their way to the ring and we are going to start with a wrestling match.

Xavier says that the New Day Train will not stop.  If you thought their win at Roadblock was impressive, you should see what they have done to the League of Booty all over Twitter.

Kofi reminds everyone to buy their BOOTY-Os with a t-shirt inside.

Big E says they are not here to shamelessly self promote or talk about the taste of BOOTY-O cereal.  

Xavier says they are here as two time WWE World Tag Team Champions.

Match Number One:  Big E and Xavier Woods (with Kofi Kingston and Francesca 2) versus Alberto Del Rio and Rusev (with Wade Barrett and Sheamus) for the WWE Tag Team Championships

Big E and Rusev start things off and they lock up.  The referee has to separate Big E and Rusev in the corner as they have some words for each other.  They lock up again and Rusev backs Big E into the corner and Rusev with punches to Big E.  Rusev with an Irish whip but Big E with a clothesline out of hte corner.  Big E with an abdominal stretch and he plays the bongos on Rusev's butt.  Big E with a back elbow.  Big E with kicks and then Xavier tags in to kick Rusev.  Big E comes back in and then Woods.  Big E is back with the kicking.  Woods comes in for the Irish whipped drop kick, but with no music.  Woods works on the leg and then he tags in Big E.

We are back with a Moments Ago Moment of what happened at the end of the Tag Title Match and the post match beatdown.

The announcers talk about whether that attack was excessive.

Dean Ambrose makes his way to the ring.  

We see the footage from Roadblock when Dean Ambrose's leg might have been under the rope and the referee refused to accept the apparent three count that would have given Dean Ambrose the WWE Championship.

Dean says he wanted to be here the new WWE World Champion, but in life you don't always get what you want.  Dean says he was close to winning the title, but his foot was under the bottom rope.  He was close to flpping over the plans for Wrestlemania.  He put Triple H through the wringer but he fell short.  Dean says he lives by his sword and he dies by his sword.  Dean says that you should ask Triple H how he is feeling.   He learned what happens when you underestimate Dean Ambrose.

Dean is interrupted by Brock Lesnar's music and it is time for the Brock Bounce.

Paul introduces himself and he says that he is the walking order of protection because he is the only voice of reason that saves Dean Ambrose from catching one hellatious beating at the hands of his beast and Dean's conqueror . . . BROCK LESNAR.

Dean tells Paul to let the beast off his leash.

Paul says he has a conflict of interest.  He would like to see Brock get his hands on Dean, but there is an event that is coming up and the sign is over your head . . . Wrestlemania.  One of the things enticing people to order the Network is the main event . . . because any match with Brock Lesnar is the main event.  The people want to see what kind of an ass kicking Dean will take at the hands of Brock Lesnar.  Paul tells Dean to stop provoking Brock Lesnar.  If Brock comes down to the ring, you will not make it to Wrestlemania.  Then there is no one left for Brock Lesnar to fight.  You are the only one crazy enough to step into the ring in a No Holds Street Fight against Brock Lesnar.

Dean points out how bouncy Brock looks and he looks like he is ready for a fight.

Paul says on Sunday April 3rd, Wrestlemania will only be on the WWE Network and this year it is free for new subscribers.  The knuckle head in the ring and the only man to be an NCAA Champion, a UFC Champion and WWE Champion, Brock Lesnar.  Paul asks what are you waiting for and he walks to the back.

However, Brock stays on the stage and he makes his way to the ring.  Dean unzips his jacket and there is a crowbar underneath.  Brock stops for a moment but he moves closer to the ring.  

Brock goes to the apron but Dean approaches with the crowbar.  Brock goes back to the floor and we go to commercial.

Match Number Two:  Ryback versus Sin Cara (with Kalisto)

They lock up and Ryback with a side head lock take down.  Ryback sends Cara into the turnbuckles and he connects with forearms.  Ryback send Cara to the mat and then Cara with punches and chops.  Ryback with a Thesz press and he slams Cara's head into the mat.  Ryback misses a splash and Cara with a chop.  Ryback with an Irish whip and back body drop.  Ryback with a suplex for a near fall.  Ryback biels Cara across the ring.   Ryback with a short arm clothesline and he gets a near fall.  Ryback with a reverse chin lock.  Cara with a jaw breaker and kicks.
