WWE RAW REPORT: ALMOST AN HOUR OF MIZ, ALMOST AN HOUR OF THE WOMEN, AN APOLOGY, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2018-02-26 23:05:00

We are back and Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

Roman looks around and he sees the Wrestlemania sign.  Roman says he is a man of his word and he said he would win the Elimination Chamber and he did.  When he says he is going to Wrestlemania and he can beat Brock Lesnar, he is telling the truth.  The truth is a funny word.  He says he doesn't know why he is covering for this guy.  Roman says the truth is that Brock Lesnar is not here tonight.  Up until about 30 minutes ago, he thought Brock was going to be here but he didn't show.  Nobody will say this back there, but Roman will say it.  Brock is an entitled piece of crap who hides behind his contract.

We are six weeks from Wrestlemania and the Universal Champion is not here.  Last night, we were in Las Vegas and Brock was there, but he was not at the Elimination Chamber.  He was taking pictures with Dana White.  Brock does not respect any of you and he does not respect anyone in the back.  Roman says they go all over the world and bust their ass but Brock shows up only when the money is right or the city is right.  It does not matter how big the town is, Roman says he will be there because he said he will be there.

Brock and Paul will come out and say they are businessmen, but Roman says he was born in this business.  He says he was taught at any early age that there is a fine line between business and respect.  Roman says he does not respect Brock Lesnar and he does not fear that bitch.

Roman says he is done speaking and he will go to the back to take his ass chewing like a man because he respects this place.

Braun Strowman says he may not have won the Elimination Chamber, but he saved everyone from Elias' noise pollution.  He will perform a symphony of destruction.

We are back and Elias is in the ring.  

Elias wants to know who wants to walk with Elias.  Elias says the feeling you are feeling is the feeling of being around greatness.  Last night did not go as he planned.  Elias says he has been down so many roads in his life and he will make it to Wrestlemania when people will know WWE stands for Walk with Elias.  Elias says he was not going to treat you to a performance and focus on his match.  Then he heard Braun call his music 'noise pollution'.  You criticize him because Braun wants to be him.  Elias says that he is everything that you want to be.  What you did two weeks ago was noise pollution.  Every word uttered from Corey Graves' stupid face, that is noise pollution.  Every time you open your mouths, that is noise pollution.

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon make their way to the ring.

Stephanie says last night was supposed to be the highlight of their executive careers, signing Ronda Rousey to WWE.  Due to the actions of one man, Kurt Angle, it all went wrong.  Stephanie says that Kurt started saying things that were not true.  Ronda believed Kurt and did things that might be okay in MMA, but not in the WWE.

We have a video package.

Stephanie says that Ronda acted out of savage instinct, the way she was trained.  Stephanie says she had to get physical with Ronda to remind her of the hierarchy.  Since Ronda signed her contract, Ronda reports to her.  That means that WWE owns Ronda Rousey.  As a good boss and manager, she needs to remind everyone of their roles and responsibilities.  It all starts with an apology from Kurt Angle.

Instead of Kurt Angle, Ronda Rousey makes her way to the ring and Stephanie and Hunter leave the ring

Kurt tells Ronda to stop and he wants to tell her one thing.  He tells her that coming to WWE was the best thing she could have done.

Ronda says she wants this more than anything, but she has never been slapped before in her life.  She refuses to be disrespected.  She is no one's property.  

Kurt says he understands why she is upset and this is a different world than she is used to.  Kurt says he needs this job.  Kurt tells Ronda that he lied last night.  He says he has had pneumonia the last few weeks and he does not know what he said.

Stephanie thanks Kurt for clearing the air and she reminds Ronda that they are not horrible people.  They understand why Ronda did what she did.  Now it is time to make Ronda the Superstar she needs to be.

Ronda says they have addressed everything, except for the slap.  If you want to put this behind us, you need to apologize to her.  If Stephanie does not apologize, she will rip Stephanie's arm out of its socket.

Stephanie says she is so sorry and she reacted after her husband was put through a table.  Stephanie welcomes Ronda to WWE and she says we are all good.

Hunter punches Kurt and then he leaves the ring.

We go to credits.
