SHANE AND MIZ, IT WILL BE A REVENGE TALE. I WANT TO SEE IF HE CAN MAKE UP FOR WHAT SHANE DID IN FRONT OF HIS DAD IN HIS HOMETOWN. I AM A SUCKER FOR A GOOD STORY. ROMAN REIGNS COME BACK. CHARLY: YOU MIGHT BE RIGHT ABOUT THAT. WE ARE SEEING EVERYONE FILING INTO METLIFE STADIUM. THERE WILL BE MORE THAN 80,000 MEMBERS OF THE WWE UNIVERSE IN ATTENDANCE TO WATCH ALL OF THE ACTION GO DOWN. WE HAVE SO MUCH TO TALK ABOUT. LET’S GO BACK TO COACH AND THE CREW.>>I LIKE THAT. THANK YOU. TALK ABOUT A STORY OF REDEMPTION, ABOUT RECOVERY. WOULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT THAT SIX-MONTH GO, THAT ROMAN REIGNS, WHO WAS SIDELINED BY LEUKEMIA, WOULD NOT ONLY BE BACK BUT WOULD BE HEALTHY ENOUGH TO COMPETE AT WRESTLEMANIA? IT IS ONE THING TO COME BACK AND COMPETE, BUT WHEN YOU GOT DREW MCINTYRE STANDING ACROSS THE RING STARING AT YOU, THAT IS GOING TO BE A DAUNTING TASK. JOHN: IT IS WRESTLEMANIA MOMENT. JOHN:THAT DEFINES — JOHN: IS A WRESTLEMANIA MOMENT. THAT DEFINES YOUR CAREER. ROMAN REIGNS, IT IS HIS FIRST MATCH BACK. HE MAY BE BITING OFF MORE THAN HE CAN CHEW. JONATHAN: YOU HAVE GOT TO BELIEVE THAT WHEN YOU HAVE 80,000 FANS, THAT UNDOUBTEDLY WILL BE BEHIND ROMAN REIGNS, LIFTING HIM UP, LIKE WHEN HE HIMSELF SAID I WAS SHOCKED AT HOW MUCH THEY LIFTED ME UP, YOU GOT TO BELIEVE HE WILL USE THAT TONIGHT AGAINST DREW. PAIGE: ABSOLUTELY. EVERY SUPERSTAR USES THAT. THEY COME BACK IN THE FANS ARE WONDERFUL. THEY WELCOME YOU BACK WITH OPEN ARMS. HE IS DEFINITELY GOING TO USE THAT. IT WILL BE IN HIS POWER. SAM: I WOULD NOT SAY UNDOUBTEDLY. WE ARE IN NEW YORK. HAVE YOU SEEN ROMAN REIGNS COMPETE IN NEW YORK BEFORE? THIS IS GOING TO BE THE TEST. THE FANS WERE HAPPY TO SEE ROMAN REIGNS COME BACK, BUT HE HAS TO PROVE HIMSELF. HE IS HEALTHY ENOUGH TO COMPETE, BUT WHEN DREW MCINTYRE GOT HIS HANDS ON ROMAN REIGNS, HE LAID HIM OUT TO THE POINT HE HAD TO BE HELPED OUT. JOHN: I DON’T CARE IF THERE ARE 8 MILLION FANS BEHIND ROMAN REIGNS. ROMAN REIGNS HAS TO FIGHT DREW MCINTYRE. IT DOESN’T MAKE A DAMN WHAT IS GOING ON AROUND HIM. IT MAY MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD. IT DOESN’T MATTER IN THAT RING. THAT IS WHAT DREW MCINTYRE KNOWS. JONATHAN: IT IS GOING TO BE GOOD AND FEEL GOOD UNTIL ROMAN REIGNS GETS IN THERE AND GET HIT IN THE MOUTH THE VERY FIRST TIME. AND HE WILL REALIZE I HAVE TO CONTINUE MY LEGACY. HE IS BEEN IN THE MAIN EVENT NOT ONCE, NOT TWICE, BUT SEVERAL TIMES OVER THE YEARS. HE KNOWS WHAT IT IS LIKE AT THIS BIG EVENT. PAIGE: I AM SO EXCITED FOR HIM TO COME BACK, ESPECIALLY AT WRESTLEMANIA IN GENERAL. ALL THESE FANS ARE GOING TO BE BEHIND HIM. I DON’T CARE IF YOU ARE NOT BEHIND HIM. HE WILL WALK AWAY. SAM: HE HAS TO PROVE THAT THIS IS STILL HIS YARD. JONATHAN: DREW MCINTYRE SAID THAT HE WANTS TO PROVE HE IS A TOP SUPERSTAR. JBL, THERE IS NO THAT A WAY TO DO THAT THAN GET A BIG WIN ON THIS STAGE. JOHN: HE IS GOING AFTER ROMAN REIGNS AT WRESTLEMANIA. THAT IS AUDACIOUS. DREW MCINTYRE WILL BE A FUTURE WORLD CHAMPION. HE CANNOT UNDERSTATE WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT ROMAN REIGNS BEING HIT FOR THE FIRST TIME — YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND. IT TAKES A WHILE TO GET INTO THAT MINDSET AGAIN. THE FIRST TIME ROMAN REIGNS GETS HITS, THE BODY IS DIFFERENT. JONATHAN: PLENTY MORE TO COME ON THE WRESTLEMANIA KICKOFF SHOW, AND WE DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT VERY LONG FOR ACTION BECAUSE WE HAVE GOT ACTION ON THE SHOW AND I AM TALKING ABOUT A LOT OF IT. IT WAS JUST ADDED THIS WEEK, THE TITLE ON THE LINE AS THE REVIVAL, THEY HAVE GONE ATTACHED TO THOSE TITLES, BUT THEY TAKE ON THAT WRITER. HE SAID THIS IT — ZACK RYDER. HE SAID THIS IS A DREAM COME TRUE. LOOK AT THOSE FACES. AT LOOK AT THOSE SUPERSTARS, THE WRESTLEMANIA WOMEN’S BATTLE ROYAL HERE TONIGHT ON THE KICKOFF SHOW. STOP INTERRUPTING ME. THE ANDRE THE GIANT MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL. WE HAVE A COUPLE GUYS FROM SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE. I THINK THEY WILL BE IN FOR A RUDE AWAKENING WHEN THEY GET IN THE RING WITH THESE BIG BOYS. JOHN: BAPTISM BY FIRE. I LOVE IT. JONATHAN: THE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH WILL KICK THINGS OFF. YOU THINK THIS IS GOING TO BE A HIGHLIGHT REEL? YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT. BUDDY MURPHY, TONY NESE.

IT IS A MATCH EVERYONE IS LOOKING FORWARD TO. LATER TONIGHT, THEY ARE CALLING IT KOFIMANIA. ALL 80,000 FANS ARE BEHIND HIM. THEN YOU BRYAN SAYS, LISTEN, I WILL STOP KOFIMANIA IN ITS TRACKS. — DANIEL BRYAN SAYS, I WILL STOP KOFIMANIA AND ITS TRACKS.>>PLEASE WELCOME BIG E AND XAVIER WOODS. HELLO, GUYS. TONIGHT IS BY FAR THE BIGGEST NIGHT OF KOFI KINGSTON’S 11 YEAR CAREER. TWO WEEKS AGO, THE TWO OF YOU MADE THAT POSSIBLE IN THAT GAUNTLET MATCH. WHAT WAS IT LIKE TO WIN THAT MATCH FOR KOFI ?>>IT WAS INCREDIBLE. THAT IS WHAT WE DO. IT IS YOUR POINT, THE NEW DAY. WE RISE TO THE OCCASION. PLEASE BELIEVE US WHEN WE SAY THAT KOFI KINGSTON WILL NOT SQUANDER THIS GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY. KAYLA: IS THERE ANY CONCERN THAT JUST BARELY MAKING IT TO WRESTLEMANIA HAS EMPTIED KOFI’S TANK? DOES HE HAVE ANYTHING LEFT TO DEFEAT THE NEW DANIEL BRYAN?>>KOFI’S TANK IS WHEN YOU GO TO PHILIPPA TANKS BUT YOU GET A LITTLE EXTRA SQUEEZE TO TOP IT OFF — FILL UP THE EXTRA TANK, BUT YOU GET A SQUEEZE FROM — SQUEEZE TO TOP IT OFF. KOFI’S TANK IS FILLED WITH MEMORIES OF BEING A BOY AND BEING TOLD HIS DREAM OF BECOMING WWE CHAMPION IS SILLY AND IMPOSSIBLE. HIS TANK IS FILLED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT HIS FAMILY, HIS WIFE, HIS SONS, AND HIS BROTHERS, WHO STAND BY HIM EVERY NIGHT, THAT WE HAVE HIS BACK UNTIL THE VERY END.>>WOW. SOON. VERY SOON. THIS ARENA IS GOING TO BE FILLED WITH OVER 80,000 PEOPLE, KAYLA. MILLIONS MORE WATCHING AROUND THE WORLD, AND EVERY SINGLE PERSON IS GOING TO BE GLUED TO THEIR SEATS AS THEY WATCH KOFI KINGSTON BECOME THEIR NEW WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!>>WE ARE READY. KAYLA, WE ARE READY. GO, KAYLA. LET’S GO, KAYLA. LET’S GO. COME ON, KAYLA. WE GOING.>>LET’S GO. LET’S GO. KAYLA. KAYLA.>>KOFI. KAYLA. KOFI. JONATHAN: IT IS ABOUT EMOTIONS. IT IS ABOUT BELIEF. IT IS ABOUT OVERCOMING ALL OF THE ODDS. HAVING HIS TWO BROTHERS HAVE HIS BACK IS SOMETHING I AM SURE HE CANNOT PUT INTO WORDS, BUT TWO MEN WHO KNOW ALL ABOUT THAT, THEY KNOW ABOUT BEING A GREAT TAG TEAM. THEY DON’T KNOW ABOUT GOING SEPARATE WAYS. I AM TALKING ABOUT EDGE AND CHRISTIAN AND THEY JOIN US ON THE WRESTLEMANIA KICKOFF SHOW. I WANT TO START WITH YOU. LET’S LOOK AT IT FROM A KOFI PERSPECTIVE. EVERYTHING HE HAS BEEN THROUGH, AND NOW, HE GETS HIS OPPORTUNITY HERE TONIGHT. EDGE: WHAT KOFI IS EXPERIENCING RIGHT NOW IS A TSUNAMI OF SUPPORT FROM THE WWE UNIVERSE THAT I DO NOT THINK CAN BE DENIED. THERE IS THE CAVEAT THAT DANIEL BRYAN HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN TITLE MATCHES AT WRESTLEMANIA BEFORE. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME KOFI HAS. I DON’T THINK IT WILL MATTER. AFTER 11 YEARS OF TRYING TO CLIMB AND SCRATCH AND CLAW AND BUTT HIS HEAD ON THE GLASS CEILING, HE WILL FINALLY RIGHT THROUGH TONIGHT AND I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE IT. SAM: YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN THROUGH EVERYTHING IT IS TO GO THROUGH IN WWE. IF KOFI IS READY FOR HIS OPPORTUNITY, YOU WOULD BE BEST TO ASK, WHY HAS IT TAKEN HIM THIS LONG TO GET TO THE SPOT? CHRISTIAN: WITH KOFI, HE WAITED 11 YEARS FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY. MAYBE YOU CAN LOOK AT IT FROM THIS PERSPECTIVE. HE WAS CONTENT WITH JUST BEING A PASSENGER ALONG FOR THE RIDE, AND THIS FELL INTO HIS LAP. MR. MCMAHON VIEWED DANIEL BRYAN AS A B-PLUS PLAYER. HERE IS WHAT HE FOUND ARE LATER ON. DANIEL BRYAN HAS A CHAMPIONSHIP MENTALITY EVEN IF THE PACKAGE IS B-PLUS PLAYER. KOFI, EVERY SINGLE TIME HE GETS TO THE FINISH LINE, HE TRIPS UP. B-PLUS PLAYER, B-PLUS MENTALITY? UNLESS HE CONTENDS THAT, HE IS NOT LEAVING AS THE CHAMPION.>>I DISAGREE. AS SOMEONE WHO WAITED 15 YEARS AGO HIS HEAVYWEIGHT MATCH, I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW YOU CAN SEE WHERE HE WAS COMING FROM. CHRISTIAN: I DID NOT WAIT 15 YEARS. I WAS SCRATCHING AND CLAWING THE 15 YEARS. HE FELL SHORT.>>TONIGHT, IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. I AM NOT SAYING ANYTHING BAD ABOUT HIM.>>SPOILED THE PARTY IF YOU ARE DANIEL BRYAN. DANIEL BRYAN IS ONE OF THE VERY FEW SUPERSTARS THAT HAS LIVED HIS DREAM OUT ON THE STANDS. AM I RIGHT? HE DOESN’T WANT KOFI TO DO THAT TO HIM.>>HE IS THE PLANETS CHAMPION. HE IS PERFORMING AT AN OPTIMUM LEVEL BECAUSE OF WHAT HE IS SAYING. HE DOES NOT POISON HIS BODY. I KNOW WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT. I HAVE BECOME 21% VEGAN AND I FEEL BETTER ABOUT IT. HE IS 100%. IMAGINE WHAT LEVEL HE IS PERFORMING AT.>>KOBE’S KINGSTON IS 100% THE PEOPLE CHAMPION. THAT IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT.>>KOFI HAS KIND OF TAKEN EVERYTHING THAT SINCE HAS GIVEN HIM. — VINCE HAS GIVEN HIM. KOFI JUST SHRUGS ND SAYS OK INSTEAD OF BEING OUTRAGED, WHICH FANS ARE, BUT KOFI IS NOT.>>YOU LOOK LIKE DEAN AMBROSE GOT PUT IN A DRYER WITH CLOSE TO THE GROUND WIG. I AM HALL OF FAMER SO MY OPINION MATTERS MORE.>>IT IS A TRAVESTY. EDGE AND CHRISTIAN, THANK YOU GUYS SO VERY MUCH. WHAT A WAY TO GET THINGS STARTED. IT IS TIME TO GET THINGS STARTED IN THE RING. LET’S SEND IT DOWN FROM WHAT IS GOING TO BE AN INCREDIBLY ACTION-PACKED MATCH. GOOD EVENING.>>I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE IF KOFI KINGSTON CAN CAPTURE THE CHAMPIONSHIP. WHO WALKS OUT OF WRESTLEMANIA CHAMPION? NIGEL: I HAVE TO THINK IT IS BUDDY MURPHY. IN THE SUPERHERO WORLD OF 205 LIVE, BUDDY MURPHY IS THANOS. AIDEN: TONIGHT IS HIS NIGHT. VIC: IT IS TIME FOR THE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP AT WRESTLEMANIA. [BELL RINGS]>>THE FOLLOWING CONTEST SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL IS FOR THE WWE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP.

TONIGHT, MOST OF THE MATCHES WILL FIT PLACE IN THE RING, BUT ONE MATCH IS NOT GOING TO BE CONTAINED. IT IS GOING TO BE SHANE, THE BEST IN THE WORLD, THE MAN, AND FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE. JONATHAN: THIS IS NOT ABOUT TITLES. IT HAS BECOME VERY, VERY PERSONAL BETWEEN FORMER TAG TEAM CHAMPION PARTNERS, AND NOW, MORTAL ENEMIES, THE MIZ AND SHANE MCMAHON. IT IS GOING TO BE DIABOLICAL AS FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE. THIS ONE IS VERY PERSONAL, AND WE HAD TO BRING IN OUR RESIDENT WWE HALL OF FAMER, JERRY THE KING LAWLER, TO SET THE DISCUSSION ON THIS ONE. YOU KNOW ALL ABOUT FAMILY AND MAKING THINGS PERSONAL IN THIS BUSINESS. WHAT SHANE MCMAHON DID TO THE MIZ’S FATHER COMPLETELY CROSSED THE LINE. JERRY: I GO A LONG WAY BACK WITH THE MCMAHONS. SHANE IS A MCMAHON. MIZ, HE IS SO EMBARRASSED OF HIS FAMILY, HE WILL NOT EVEN USE A LAST NAME. SHANE HAS A PERSIAN RUG MADE OUT OF REAL PERSIANS. MIZ, HE GREW UP FLIPPING BURGERS. SHANE IS GOING TO MAKE MIZ TAKE A BACK — M MAKE TAKE A BACKSEATIZ — MAKE MIZ TAKE A BACKSEAT.HIS SON IS THE ONE WHO MADE A NAME FOR HIMSELF. IT WAS JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE HE GOT HIT. WHEN MIZ WAS A LITTLE BABY, HE TOOK HIS FIRST STEP, AND HIS DAD TRIPPED HIM. SAM: THIS VERSION OF THE MIZ IS MORE ANNOYING. YOU ARE PROBABLY THE WRONG PERSON TO ASK BECAUSE I SAW A MOVIE. PAIGE: FIGHT WITH MY FAMILY? SAM: YOUR FAMILY ACTUALLY IS ALL IN THE RING. WATCHING THE MIZ TALK ABOUT HOW HE IS A DAD AND HE GOT HIS WIFE, AND HIS DAD LOVES HIM, HE IS TALKING ABOUT HIS FAMILY INSTEAD OF TALKING ABOUT CHAMPIONSHIPS AND RIVALRIES. KING, PAIGE, ISN’T THAT A TERRIBLE STRATEGY? IS IN YOUR FAMILY THE LAST THING YOU WANT TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT WHEN YOU’RE IN A RING? JERRY: OF COURSE WRESTLING IS THE MOST IMPORTANT. PAIGE: SINCE SHANE RELIEVED ME AS MY JOB — OF MY JOB AS GM, I SHOULD BECOME GM AGAIN AND THIS STUFF WOULD NOT BEEN ANYMORE. JONATHAN: I THINK THE MIZ GOT SUCKERED IN. SHANE IS NOT AN ARTISTIC IN RING PERFORMER, BUT WHEN HE GETS IN A MATCH LIKE THIS, THIS IS WHERE SHANE MCMAHON SHINES. JERRY: YOU ARE EXACTLY RIGHT. I CAN SEE SHANE CLIMBING UP ONTO THE TOP ROPE AND DIVING ALL THE WAY ACROSS. YOU KNOW WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT. YOU NO SHAME DOES THAT MOVE. RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF THE MIZ, THE A-LISTER FACE.>>HE IS A GREAT COMPETITOR, BUT I THINK HE IS STEPPING IN THE DEEP END HERE. YOU HAVE SEEN WHAT HE IS WILLING TO DO TO CREATE A MOMENT. I AM NOT SURE THE MIZ KNOWS WHAT HE IS GETTING INTO. JONATHAN: ONE OF THE GREAT VOICES OF THE WWE AT RINGSIDE, LILIAN GARCIA.>>WE ARE GETTING SET FOR OUR WOMEN IN THE WOMEN’S BATTLE ROYAL. MAKING THEIR WAY DOWN TO THE RING. I WANT TO WELCOME MEN SOME NEW PARTNERS. THAT BEING NXT’S PERCY WATSON AND RENEE YOUNG. PERCY: I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW EXCITED I AM. LET’S DO THIS THING, BABY. VIC: WHO DO YOU THINK WILL WIN THE SECOND ANNUAL WOMEN’S BATTLE ROYAL? RENEE: I’M PUTTING MY MONEY ON SONYA DEVILLE.>>THE FOLLOWING IS THE WRESTLEMANIA WOMEN’S BATTLE ROYAL. IN THIS MATCH, ELIMINATIONS OCCUR WHEN A SUPERSTAR IS THROWN OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH BOTH FEET HITTING THE FLOOR. THE LAST REMAINING WOMAN WILL BE DECLARED THE WINNER. VIC: WE ARE SET, AS YOU SEE. SUPERSTARS MAKING THEIR WAY IN. MICKIE JAMES, DANA BROOKE. YOU CHOSE SONYA DEVILLE. RENEE: SONYA DEVILLE HAS CONSTANTLY BEEN CALLED A FUTURE CHAMPION. TONIGHT COULD BE A NIGHT FOR HER TO TAKE A SPOTLIGHT ON THE GRANDEST STAGE OF THEM ALL.>>MAKING THEIR WAY TO THE RING FROM ORLANDO, FLORIDA, NAOMI. PERCY: AND THERE IS MY PICK RIGHT THERE. SHE WON THE FIRST EVER WRESTLEMANIA. SHE IS LOOKING FOR A REPEAT, I AM TELLING YOU. VIC: MAKING HER WAY TO THE RING IS NAOMI, BUT HOW ABOUT THE NEXT COMPETITOR? PERCY: SCARY THOUGHT RIGHT HERE.

RAW WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP, THE SMACKDOWN WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP. IT IS RONDA ROUSEY, CHARLOTTE FLAIR, AND BECKY LYNCH, AND ALL THREE BELIEVE THEY CAN GET THE JOB DONE TONIGHT. KING, YOU HAVE SEEN SO MANY WRESTLEMANIA. DID YOU EVER BELIEVE THAT WE WOULD HAVE THIS HISTORICAL MATCH HERE TONIGHT? JERRY: HONESTLY, NO I DIDN’T. THERE IS A WIMMER, AND IT IS — WINNER, AND IT IS THE WOMEN’S MATCH IN THE WWE. ESPECIALLY GUYS IN THE BUSINESS KNOW HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO BE — MORE IMPORTANT THAN IT IS TO THE FANS, TO BE THE MAIN EVENT AT WRESTLEMANIA, AND FOR THESE THREE YOUNG LADIES TO DO THAT TONIGHT, IT IS AWESOME. JOHN: CAREERS ARE DEFINED BY THIS STAGE. WHEN SIMMONS BECAME THE FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, HE SAID THIS IS ABOUT HISTORY. IT IS ABOUT HISTORY. THIS IS A GROUNDBREAKING MOMENT. THEY DESERVE THIS IRRESPECTIVE OF THEIR GENDER. I THINK 20 YEARS FROM NOW, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT THIS MATCH IN A HISTORICAL CONTEXT NOT BECAUSE OF THEIR GENDER, BUT BECAUSE OF THE GREAT COMPETITORS BETTER IN THAT RING.>>WE HAVE SEEN BECKY LYNCH BECOME ARGUABLY THE BIGGEST ARE IN THE WWE RIGHT NOW.

A COUPLE WEEKS AGO, SHE CAME TO ME AND SHE SAID, KING, I HAVE BEEN WATCHING YOUTUBE VIDEOS, LOOKING AT THE KING THROW PUNCHES, AND I WANT TO THROW A PUNCH RIGHT IN CHARLOTTE FLAIR’S FACE. SO I AM PULLING FOR BECKY LYNCH. JOHN: I HEADLINE HERE BEFORE. I HAVE BEEN IN A TON OF TRIPLE THREAT MATCHES. YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO BE AROUND IN A TRIPLE THREAT MATCH.

AFTER A WHILE, YOU START TO SEE THEM AS EQUALS, AS A PEER. DAVE IS SOMEONE WHO HAS ALWAYS FELT THAT HUNTER HAS KEPT HIM DOWN. DAVE BATISTA, A SIX-TIME WORLD CHAMPION.

KICKS THE LEG AND A KICKOUT BY ZACH. CURT HAWKINS REALIZES HE HAS TO MAKE SOME SORT OF TAG TO GET INTO THIS MATCHUP. COREY: SEAMLESS TEAMWORK, FOCUSING ON THE LEFT SHOULDER AND ELBOW OF ZACK RYDER. RENEE: HE HAS GOT TO AMP UP THE ENERGY LITTLE BIT. MICHAEL: WILDER TRYING TO REST — TRYING TO WRESTLE ZACK. TRYING TO CREATE SOME SEPARATION HERE. TAG MADE TO DAWSON. COREY: ALMOST INSTINCTIVELY WITH THE INTERCEPTION. BEAUTIFUL. MICHAEL: WAIT A MINUTE! THE DOUBLE NECKBREAKER. CAN HE MAKE A TAG TO CURT HAWKINS? ZACK RYDER TRYING TO DIG DOWN DEEP, TRYING TO CRAWL SOMEHOW TOWARD HIS PARTNER, CURT HAWKINS. GREAT MOVE BY DAWSON. COREY: RING AWARENESS. A VETERAN, KG MANEUVER BY SCOTT DAWSON. RENEE: ZACK RYDER JUST GETTING LIT UP. MICHAEL: NOW WILDER IS IN. HE WILL CONTINUE WHAT HAS BEEN A BARRAGE. HOOK OF THE LEG. IT ALLOWED RYDER TO KICK AT TWO. COREY: HAWKINS HAS TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET HIS OWN TEAM DISQUALIFIED. MICHAEL: 269 STRAIGHT LOSSES HAS GOT TO BE EATING UP THIS MAN INSIDE. RENEE: HE’S GOING TO JUMP ON THAT NQR ALL THE WAY BACK TO QUEENS. MICHAEL: SLIDING ELBOW ON THE BACK OF THE NECK. THE REVIVAL, ALWAYS TALKING TRASH, GETTING IN THE HEADS OF THEIR OPPONENTS. DAWSON USES FOUR OF THE FIVE COUNT. DAWSON, BODY BLOW AGAIN TO THE BACK OF THE NECK. COREY: THE GREATEST TAG TEAMS IN HISTORY ARE ALWAYS ON THE SAME PAGE. DASH AND DAWSON NOT EVEN IN THE SAME SENTENCE, THEY ARE IN THE SAME SYLLABLE. MICHAEL: ZACK RYDER IS DOWN-AND-OUT. A NEARFALL, TWO-COUNT NOW. COREY: IT IS A MATTER OF TIME. THE REVIVAL ARE TOYING WITH ZACK RYDER. HAWKINS CAN LUCKILY USE HIS NEW YORK JETS GEAR THE NEXT TIME HE COMES TO A GAME. RENEE: I TALKED WITH HIM TODAY, LIGHT IN HIS EYES TO BE A PART OF WRESTLEMANIA. MICHAEL: WILDER, SNAP. A STRAIGHT KICK RIGHT TO THE SPINE. NOTHING PRETTY ABOUT THE REVIVAL. COREY: ABSOLUTELY NOT. ROUGH AND RUGGED STYLE. KNOCKS IT DOWN AND PICKS YOU APART. MICHAEL: LESS THAN 38 MINUTES REMAINING THE WRESTLEMANIA KICKOFF SHOW. TOP OF THE HOUR, OVER 80,000 WWE FANS EXPECTED, SOLD OUT TONIGHT HERE AT METLIFE STADIUM. COREY: IT’S GETTING LOUDER AND LOUDER, THE ENERGY GETTING GREATER AND GREATER. IN MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THE GREATEST NIGHT IN LIVE ENTERTAINMENT. RENEE: ZACK RYDER KEEPS TRYING TO GET A LITTLE BIT OF MOMENTUM BUT DASH KEEPS TOSSING HIM BACK DOWN TO THE MAT. COREY: THE TECHNIQUE WITH DAWSON AND RYDER IS UNPARALLELED. RENEE: THEY’VE BEEN FRIENDS SINCE — COREY: YOU AND I ARE FRIENDS, WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS. TOTALLY DIFFERENT SCENARIO. RENEE: HERE WE GO! MICHAEL: HAWKINS MAKES THE TAG. HE IS NOW LEGAL. HAWKINS IS FIRED UP, GOING RIGHT AFTER THE REVIVAL. HAWKINS LEVELS DAWSON. DROPKICK. CURT HAWKINS IS ABLE TO MAKE THE TAG. IT HAS BEEN A HOUSE OF FIRE AGAINST THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS. A KICKOUT AT TWO. RENEE: WE COULD SEE THE STREAK END TONIGHT FOR CURT HAWKINS. MICHAEL: IF THE STREAK ENDS, WE WILL CROWN A NEW CHAMPION. DAWSON LOOKS TO TURN IT AROUND. RENEE: DAWKINS — HAWKINS IS NOT PLAYING. MICHAEL: SCOTT DAWSON. SHOULDERS ARE DOWN! ALMOST HAD HIM, NEARFALL. LOOKS LIKE HAWKINS WAS LOOKING FOR HIS PARTNER BUT ZACK RYDER, WHO ABSORBED A TON OF PUNISHMENT, NOWHERE TO BE FOUND ON THE APRON. RENEE: IT HAS BEEN A DECADE SINCE ZACK RYDER AND CURT HAWKINS HELD THE TAG TITLE. MICHAEL: ANOTHER LOOK AT THE COLLISION. ZACK RYDER MEASURING HIS MAN, PERHAPS LOOKING FOR THE ROUGH RYDER TO TRY TO PUT DAWSON AWAY. COREY: THE ELBOW TO THE JAW. MICHAEL: DOWN GOES DAWSON. HERE COMES WILDER. OH MY GOD! TUMBLED OVER THE TOP ROPE IN HIT HARD. RYDER HIT HARD ON THE BACK OF HIS NECK. CURT HAWKINS LOOKING ON AND REALIZING HIS TAG TEAM PARTNER IS IN TROUBLE. HAS TO GET HIM BACK IN THE RING SO HE CAN MAKE SOME SORT OF TAG HERE. HAWKINS IS LEGAL. COVER ON DAWSON. IS IT ENOUGH? DASH PULLING HAWKINS OFF THE NEARFALL. COREY: TORNADO DDT BY DASH WILDER. MICHAEL: DAWSON WITH A BRAINBUSTER. RIGHT ON THE FLOOR OUTSIDE THE RING. COREY: IF EVERYONE GETS COUNTED OUT, THE RIVAL WILL RETAIN BECAUSE OF THE CHAMPION ADVANTAGE. MICHAEL: BODIES ARE EVERYWHERE AFTER THIS BRAINBUSTER TO HAWKINS. DAWKINS — DAWSON BACK TO HIS FEET. COREY: HE WANTS TO BEAT THEM FAIR AND SQUARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING. MICHAEL: THE COUNT HAS STOPPED. COREY: CURT HAWKINS HAS NOT MOVED SINCE SUFFERING THE BRAINBUSTER. RENEE: THE LOVE FROM THE WWE UNIVERSE. COREY: HE DOESN’T NEED LOVE, HE NEEDS SMELLING SALTS. MICHAEL: THEY ARE SAYING, “GO HOME.” I DON’T THINK THEY ARE SAYING THAT. COREY: JUST CALL THE MATCH. RENEE: HAWKINS LOOK LIKES — DAWSON LOOKS LIKE HE IS ENJOYING THIS ONE. MICHAEL: GOT HIM! THE STREAK IS OVER! RING ANNOUNCER: YOUR WINNERS, AND THE NEW RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, ZACK RYDER AND CURT HAWKINS! MICHAEL: IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST INFAMOUS RECORDS IN WWENETWORK.COM HISTORY — IN WWE HISTORY. HAWKINS AND RYDER ARE THE NEW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS. RENEE: THERE’S MAGIC IN THE AIR TONIGHT. NEW TAG TEAM CHAMPS! MICHAEL: A NEW YORK STATE OF MIND FOR THE HOMETOWN GUYS. RYDER AND HAWKINS, THE NEW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS. COREY: TWO TITLES HAVE NOW CHANGED HANDS ON THE KICKOFF SHOW.

THIS IS A GREAT NIGHT. CHARLY: WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO? AKBAR: THE MAIN EVENT. RONDA ROUSEY, CHARLOTTE FLAIR, BECKY LYNCH. LET’S NOT FORGET, THE ANDRE THE GIANT ROYAL RUMBLE. CHARLY: WE HAVE SO MANY GREAT MATCHES TO LOOK FORWARD TO TONIGHT. WE’VE GOT SETH ROLLINS, THE ARCHITECT, ALREADY THE KINGSLAYER. TONIGHT, HE LOOKS TO TAKE DOWN BROCK LESNAR.>>CERTAINLY SETH ROLLINS HAS ALL THE SWAGGER AND CONFIDENCE TO GET THE JOB DONE. BUT ACTUALLY SLAYING THE BEAST IS COMPLETELY ANOTHER THING. TONIGHT, THE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP IS ON THE LINE AND YOU’VE GOT TO BELIEVE THAT SETH ROLLINS IS HAVING A MOMENT BY HIMSELF BECAUSE HE UNDERSTANDS THAT THE MOUNTAIN HE’S ABOUT TO CLIMB HAS NEVER BEEN BIGGER. LET’S BRING IN OUR TWO-TIME WWE HALL OF FAMER, BOOKER T. LET’S SEE THOSE RINGS. LOOK AT ALL THAT GOLD. LAST NIGHT FOR THE HARLEM HEAT, WHAT AN INCREDIBLE NIGHT. TONIGHT IS ABOUT TONIGHT. YOU LOOK AT BROCK LESNAR AND SETH ROLLINS, WHAT DOES SETH HAVE TO DO? BOOKER T: SETH PUNCHED HIS OWN TICKET, OUTLASTING 29 MEN IN THE 2019 ROYAL RUMBLE. THAT SAYS IT ALL. HE’S ON A COLLISION COURSE WITH BROCK LESNAR. BROCK LESNAR HAVING HAD A CHANCE TO PLAY EACH MEMBER WITH SETH ROLLINS BEING THE FINAL.>>YOU HAVE BEEN IN THE RING BEFORE. YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND, SETH ROLLINS HAS A 0% CHANCE OF WINNING THIS MATCH.>>SETH ROLLINS WAS THE ARCHITECT, THE BRAINS, THE STRATEGIST. IT IS EASIER SAID THAN DONE.

FOR COLIN JOST AND MICHAEL CHE, YOU SAW THEM WALKING DOWN VERY SLOWLY. I THINK THIS IS BIGGER THAN THEY EXPECTED. DAVID: EVERYBODY WANTS TO COMPETE AT THE GREATEST STAGE, IT SOUNDS AWESOME, UNTIL YOU GET PUNCHED IN THE FACE OR THROWN OVER THE TOP ROPE. BOOKER T: THIS RIGHT HERE IS A MOMENT FOR ONE OF THESE WWE SUPERSTARS TO MAKE A MOMENT FOR THEMSELVES. A WIN HERE AT WRESTLEMANIA, PUNCH YOUR OWN TICKET. SAM: AS A HALL OF FAMER, IS IT DISRESPECTFUL THAT COLIN JOST AND — COLIN JOST AND MICHAEL CHE ARE TAKING THE ANDRE THE GIANT — TOM: — BOOKER T: I WISH I HAD IT IN MY HANDS. JONATHAN: YOU ARE A BIG GOLF GUY. BOOKER T: YOU LOOK AT TIGER WOODS, HE’S GOT TO EARN HIS SPOT. JONATHAN: THEY ARE NOT TAKING TWO SPOTS AWAY FROM ANYBODY. THEY JUST ADDED THEM. SAM: WHAT IF THEY WIN? BOOKER T: THERE IS ZERO CHANCE OF THAT. JONATHAN: IF THEY DID WIN, WOULD YOU TAKE BACK WHAT YOU ARE SAYING? BOOKER T: NO. IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN TONIGHT. I HOPE IT HAPPENS QUICK AND PAINLESS. JONATHAN: THERE’S SOME DUMB QUESTIONS AND THEN THERE’S THE QUESTION SAM JUST ASKED YOU. TO BOOKER’S POINT, WE’VE SEEN OTHER CELEBRITIES COME INTO OUR WORLD AND TRY TO MAKE A NAME FOR THEMSELVES. WE HOPE THAT THEY WALK IN AND THEY WALK OUT. THERE’S SOME BIG BOYS AND THEIR WHO WOULD LOVE TO GET THEIR HANDS ON THEM. BOOKER T: I DON’T COME FROM THAT SIDE OF TOWN. [LAUGHTER] MY THING IS THIS. THEY STEPPED INSIDE. MY MAMA USED TO SAY, YOU BIG ENOUGH TO PASS A LICK, YOU BIG ENOUGH TO TAKE ONE. JONATHAN: LET’S GET READY FOR THE BATTLE ROYAL. TOM: THE RING IS FULL OF WWE SUPERSTARS FOR THE ANDRE THE GIANT MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL. IT IS ABOUT TO GET CRAZY. AIDEN: THINK ABOUT A ROYAL RUMBLE BUT THE ROYAL ALL HAPPENING AT O TIME. TOM: TONIGHT, WRESTLEMANIA IS PRESENTED BY SNICKERS. YO ARE NOT YOU WN YOU ARE HUNGRY. SNICKERS SATISFIES. HERE COMES THE MONSTER EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT LEADING UP TO THIS MATCH. RING ANNOUNCER: WEIGHING IN AT 385 POUNDS, RAW — BRAUN STROWMAN. TOM: THEY ARE DONE. WE WILL NEVER SEE THEM ON SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE FAME AGAIN. AIDEN: THEY ARE LUCKY THEY CAN SIT DOWN FOR THEIR JOBS BECAUSE THEY WON’T BE ABLE TO STAND FOR A MONTH. TOM: BRAUN STROWMAN IS HERE WALKING TOWARD THE RING.>>HE TOOK THAT TO THE NTH DEGREE. TOM: TRADITIONALLY, YOU HAVE TO THROW A SUPERSTAR OVER THE TOP ROPE. LAST MAN STANDING IS WINNING. TRADITIONALLY, LARGER SUPERSTARS ARE TARGETS. [BELL RINGS] TOM: DID CHE AND JOST CRAWL UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE?>>SMART BUT COWARDLY. TOM: LINCE ALVARADO USED ALL OF HIS NINE LIVES THERE.>>THIS IS FAST AND FURIOUS RIGHT OFF OF THE BAT. IT HAPPENS THAT FAST. YOU’VE GOT TO KEEP SIX EYES IN THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD. TOM: BRAUN STROWMAN IS DOING ALL THE CLEARINGHOUSE. THERE GOES DALLAS.>>RETURNING. THEY SAY LUKE HARPER TAUGHT HIM EVERYTHING HE KNOWS. TOM: SWARMED BY THE REST OF THE FIELD HERE AT WRESTLEMANIA. THE ANDRE THE GIANT MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL CONTINUES. BRAUN STROWMAN CAME INTO THIS FIGHT LOOKING TO HAVE A PIECE OF MICHAEL CHE AND COLIN JOST OF SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE FAME. RIGHT NOW, ANYBODY’S GAME.>>TEAMING UP ON BRAUN STROWMAN. SMART STRATEGY.>>HE’S THE CAL RIPKEN OF THIS THING. HE’S BEEN IN EVERYONE. TOM: AND HE’S BEEN ELIMINATED FROM EVERYONE. HARPER TRYING TO GET RID OF APOLLO CREWS.>>THE FIFTH ANDRE THE GIANT MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL AND FIFTH TIME HE HAS LOST.>>HE’S GOT A TON OF HEART AND A LOT A FIGHT. TOM: ALI MATCHING UP WITH THE LARGER NO WAY JOSE. BYRON: WHAT A GREAT STORY OF REDEMPTION THIS WOULD BE FOR ALI. VIC: NO WAY JOSE –TOM: NO WAY HOSEA’S GONE. AIDEN: HEAVY MACHINERY JUST LIFTED BRAUN STROWMAN AND DROPPED HIM CENTER OF THE RING. BYRON: WE MENTIONED MATT HARDY WON THE BATTLE ROYAL LAST YEAR. TOM: THROUGH THE ROPES, HE’S NOT ELIMINATED. MOJO RAWLEY BACK IN 2017. OH, CARL ANDERSON OVER THE TOP ROPE! HE’S ELIMINATED. SOMEBODY JUST UNCORKED ONE. I BELIEVE KALISTO AND ANDRADE ARE TYING UP. LUCHA HOUSE PARTY TRYING TO HELP OUT. RHYNO KNOWS THE HARDY’S ALL TOO WELL. BYRON: I WANT TO KNOW WHAT GOING TO HAPPEN IF THIS COMES DOWN TO MATT AND JEFF HARDY. TOM: FORMER TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS WORKING TOGETHER. MATT HARDY, LAST YEAR’S WINNER. POETRY IN MOTION. BYRON: HARDYS WORKING AWFULLY GOOD TOGETHER. BOBBY ROODE, GOODBYE. TOM: THERE GOES GRAN METALIK. AIDEN: DID YOU SEE HOW FAR HE FELL? TOM: WENT FOR THE SALIDA DEL SOL. A BACK ELBOW BY ANDRADE. ANDRADE TOSSING KALISTO OUT. THAT WAS CREATIVE. NOW, THE GERMAN SUPLEXES HERE BY CHAD GABLE, NOT LETTING GO OF AND ROT A. — OF ANDRADE. WE JUST WATCHED CHAD GABLE GET ELIMINATED BY ANDRADE. AIDEN: SO MANY GUYS WHO I KNOW ARE SUCH WELL CONDITIONED ATHLETES HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED. THIS IS MADNESS. TOM: TUCKER ON HEAVY MACHINERY. AIDEN: SIT BACK, ENJOY THE CATERPILLAR! TOM: DOUBLE CATERPILLAR! AIDEN: WHAT DID I JUST WATCH? BYRON: MY LIFE IS COMPLETE. TOM: THERE GOES BOTH MEMBERS OF THE ASCENSION, KONNOR AND VICTOR. WAIT A MINUTE, BRAUN STROWMAN. HE WENT THROUGH THE ROPES EARLIER ON AND DID NOT GET ELIMINATED. A MONSTROUS DROPKICK. DOWN GOES 650 POUNDS OF HEAVY MACHINERY. AIDEN: THIS IS WHAT I THOUGHT WAS A DANGEROUS MOVE. HE IS HERE TO CLEAN HOUSE. TOM: THIS IS A STATEMENT OF DOMINANCE RIGHT NOW. HARPER TIED UP WITH ALI ALONG THE ROPES. BYRON: HE’S WIGGLING. TOM: THAT IS THE DANGER OF THE ANDRE THE GIANT MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL. AIDEN: HARPER GOING AGAIN, TRYING FOR THAT SUPLEX AGAIN. TOM: STROMAN GOT THEM BOTH RIGHT IN FRONT OF US. WATCH THIS ONE MORE TIME. GOING FOR A NASTY SUPLEX. TAKE HIM BOTH OUT. I BELIEVE STROMAN HAS SET THE RECORD FOR THE MOST ELIMINATIONS IN THE ANDRE THE GIANT MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL. AIDEN: NO KIDDING, MID SUPLEX. TOM: ANDRADE TRYING TO TAKE CARE OF APOLLO CREWS. DOWN TO FIVE SUPERSTARS LEFT INSIDE THE RING. BYRON: TWO ARE ON THE OUTSIDE. TOM: DANGEROUS PART OF TOWN. ANDRADE ELIMINATED HIMSELF. OVER THE TOP ROPE, BACK INSIDE. THUGHT ABOUT THE TWIST OF FATE. AIDEN: THIS IS DANGEROUS TERRITORY, TRYING TO PULL HIM OVER TOGETHER. TOM: JEFF AND MATT TRYING TO WORK TOGETHER. AIDEN: NO, NO, NO. DON’T YOU DARE. THIS WOULD BE A DISGRACE. TOM: THEY ARE TRYING TO SCREW BRAUN STROWMAN’S CHANCES. AIDEN: THANK GOODNESS.

NOT EVERYTHING HAS TO END IN VIOLENCE, RIGHT? THAT’S WHY I’VE INVITED HERE MY THERAPIST. I WANT YOU GUYS TO WORK THROUGH SOME OF THIS ANGER. TOM: BRAUN STROWMAN IS NOT BIG ON THERAPY SESSIONS. OH! TOM: WHAT? BYRON: SMART MOVE, GET OUT OF THERE. TOM: CHE IS TRYING TO ELIMINATE HIMSELF. STROMAN ELIMINATES MICHAEL CHE. WE ARE DOWN TO TWO. BYRON: JOST IS ALL ALONE WITH THE MONSTER AMONG MEN. TOM: JOST IS TRYING TO ELIMINATE STROMAN. CAN HE MUSCLE HIM OVER? AIDEN: YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME. THIS CAN’T HAPPEN. TOM: JOST IS FIGHTING TO PROTECT HIS LIFE HERE. HE NEARLY ELIMINATED THE MONSTER AMONG MEN. AIDEN: TIME TO PAY FOR YOUR SINS, JOST. SHOW HIM WHAT WE DO TO INTRUDERS. TOM: JOST IS ELIMINATED. STROMAN WINS THE ANDRE THE GIANT MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL. RING ANNOUNCER: YOUR WINNER, BRAUN STROWMAN!>>WE EXPECTED CHE AND JOST TO GET THESE HANDS AND WE EXPECTED STROMAN TO BE THE FAVORITE. TOM: THE HALL OF FAMER ANDRE THE GIANT. STROMAN WINS AT WRESTLEMANIA. JONATHAN: THE KICKOFF SHOW CONTINUES. I’VE GOT TO GIVE COLIN JOST A LOT OF CREDIT. HE GAVE IT EVERYTHING HE HAS. MAYBE THE FIRST TIME WE’VE SEEN A THERAPIST AT WRESTLEMANIA. BRAUN STROWMAN GOT THE JOB DONE. DAVID: I THINK SAM WAS EXCITED BECAUSE HE THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO BE RIGHT FOR A SECOND. BOOKER T: HE DID HAVE A PLAN. IF YOU AIN’T CHEATING, YOU AIN’T TRYING. SAM: THIS MAKES NO SENSE TO ME. HOW COULD ANDRADE DO SOMETHING SO STUPID AS TO ELIMINATE HIMSELF? BOOKER T: I DON’T THINK IT WAS STUPID. HE WENT FOR A MOVE AND IT DIDN’T COME OFF THE WAY HE PLANNED FOR IT TO COME OFF. IT JUST DIDN’T GO OFF THE WAY HE WANTED IT TO. JONATHAN: SOMETIMES EMOTIONS RUN HIGH. SOMETIMES A GUY YOU HAVE A PERSONAL RIVALRY WITH, YOU DON’T WANT HIM TO WIN. BOOKER T: ANDRADE IS LIKE AN ACROBAT. HE IS ONE OF THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS. SAM: DO YOU FEEL BETTER SEEING MICHAEL CHE AND COLIN JOST GETTING THEIR BUTTS KICKED? BOOKER T: THE BROTHER DID THE RIGHT THING. DAVID: MICHAEL CHE JUST GOT SMACKED IN THE MOUTH AND I GUARANTEE YOU NEXT YEAR IN TAMPA WE WON’T SEE THOSE GUYS SHOWING UP. BOOKER T: BIG PROPS TO THEM. THE PLAN WAS A GREAT PLAN. JONATHAN: BRAUN STROWMAN, NOW THAT HIS NAME IS ENGRAVED ON THAT ANDRE CUPP, WILL HE START LOOKING AT WHO WINS THE UNIVERSAL MATCH TONIGHT, WHO WINS THE WWE MATCH TONIGHT? DAVID: BRAUN STROWMAN LOOKED INCREDIBLE. HE’S ALWAYS A MOUNTAIN OF A MAN BUT HE LOOKED EVEN LEANER, EVEN MORE JACK. BOOKER T: BEING SHREDDED. THE THING IS, AS SOON AS HE CAME OUT, DAVID ACTUALLY TOUCHED ME AND SAID, DO YOU SEE THIS? I SEE IT. DEFINITELY, BRAUN STROWMAN HAS BIGGER FISH TO FRY. THIS RIGHT HERE IS JUST THE BEGINNING. HE’S GOT A CHIP IN THE GAME NOW, IT’S JUST A MATTER OF WHEN HE’S GOING TO USE IT. I THINK WHEN BRAUN STROWMAN FINALLY CAPTURES THAT GOLD, IT WILL BE A LONG TIME BEFORE ANYONE TAKES IT. SAM: HE’S GOT TO CAPTURE IT FIRST THOUGH. BOOKER T: BEING IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME IS WHAT IT IS TRULY ALL ABOUT. WE TALK ABOUT KOFI-MANIA. KOFI IS IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME. ALI GOES DOWN, KOFI STEPS UP. WIN BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, IF YOU FEEL ME. JONATHAN: YOU TALKED ABOUT THE FACT THAT BRAUN STROWMAN CAME IN LEAN AND IN SHAPE. IT SHOWS TO ME THAT THE PAST COUPLE OF MONTHS, HE HAS SAID TO HIMSELF, THIS IS MY YEAR. BOOKER T: 365 DAYS, IT IS HARD TRYING TO STAY IN SHAPE ALL YEAR LONG. HOPEFULLY HE WILL GET IT DONE. JONATHAN: THE KICKOFF SHOW CONTINUES JUST MOMENTS AWAY FROM WRESTLEMANIA. WE ARE LIVE BACK HERE ON THE USA NETWORK. AS YOU CAN SEE, METLIFE STADIUM HAS FILLED ALMOST TO CAPACITY. OVER 80,000 FANS WILL BE HERE TONIGHT. ONE YEAR AGO, RONDA ROUSEY MADE HER IN DEBUT. OVER THE COURSE OF THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS, ATTENTION TO THE ATTITUDE. A RIVALRY THAT PUSHED THE WOMEN’S DIVISION TO ALL-TIME HEIGHTS. FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, WOMEN WILL HAVE THE COVETED MAIN EVENT SPOT. IT IS ALL OR NOTHING, BOTH WOMEN’S TITLES WILL BE ON THE LINE HERE TONIGHT. ♪>>I SAY THAT I’M THE BEST AND THERE IS NOT A WOMAN THAT CAN TELL ME DIFFERENT. ♪>>SINCE DAY ONE, I TOLD YOU THAT THIS WAS MY DESTINY. ANY RING I STEP INTO HIS MIND. I CAN GO ROGUE WHENEVER I WANT. ♪>>FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN WWE HISTORY COME A WOMEN’S MATCH WILL MAIN EVENT WRESTLEMANIA. ROUSEY, FLAIR, LYNCH. WINNER-TAKE-ALL.>>♪ I WILL NEVER HIT THE GROUND HIT THE GROUND GOT TO KEEP AN EYE ON YOU PATIENCE IS PAPERTHIN PROMISES BROKE AGAIN WHAT A SIN IT ONLY FEEDS MY ENERGY DON’T EXPECT NO SYMPATHY FLARES ARE GOING UP FLARES ARE GOING UP THIS TIME I WON’T LET GO I’D RATHER DIE ♪>>MY ENTIRE CAREER, I’VE BEEN KNOCKING DOWN PEOPLE. JUDO, THE UFC, NOW THE MAIN EVENT AT WRESTLEMANIA.>>THAT’S WHY I WAS HANDPICKED TO BE THE MAIN EVENT.>>I WAS NOT HANDPICKED LIKE YOU BUT HERE I AM.>>AT WRESTLEMANIA, I AM RECLAIMING EVERYTHING THEY’VE TRIED TO TAKE FROM ME TO GIVE TO SOMEONE ELSE.>>I AM DONE PRETENDING. I’M NO LONGER HERE TO ENTERTAIN YOU. I’M GOING TO TAP OUT CHARLOTTE AND BECKY AT THE SAME TIME AT WRESTLEMANIA. CHARLOTTE: I’M GOING TO MAKE BECKY AND RONDA ROUSEY BOW DOWN.>>THESE THREE WOMEN NOW ABOUT TO BEAT THE HELL OUT OF EACH OTHER. THE MAIN EVENT AT WRESTLEMANIA IS IN HANDCUFFS. CAN YOU IMAGINE WHEN THESE THREE WOMEN GO INTO THE RING?>>WINNER TAKES ALL, THAT’S GOING TO BE ME.>>JUDGMENT FOR BOTH BECKY AND CHARLOTTE. BECKY: MY REVOLUTION IS GOING TO EXPLODE WHEN I MAKE ONE OF THEM TAP.>>LYNCH, FLAIR, ROUSEY. WINNER-TAKE-ALL!>>THESE THREE WOMEN WILL JOIN A VERY EXCLUSIVE CLUB TONIGHT OF SUPERSTARS, THE LIKES OF HULK HOGAN, ROMAN REIGNS, SHAWN MICHAELS, THE UNDERTAKER, TRIPLE H, AUSTIN, THE ROCK. BOOKER T? [LAUGHTER] BOOKER T: I WAS WONDERING. JONATHAN: GIVE ME YOUR PREDICTIONS OF WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE MAIN EVENT. SAM: IT IS THE FIRST EVER WOMEN’S MAIN EVENT FOR WRESTLEMANIA BUT THEY ARE NOT THERE BECAUSE THEY ARE WOMEN. THEY ARE THERE BECAUSE THIS IS THE STORY THAT PEOPLE WANT TO SEE SETTLED. I DON’T KNOW WHO GOING TO WIN BUT I KNOW THAT BECKY NEEDS TO WIN. IF SHE DOESN’T WIN, IT IS BOTTOM OF THE FOOD CHAIN FOR HER. MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR CHARLOTTE, RHONDA, BUT NOT FOR BECKY IF SHE LOSES. BOOKER T: RHONDA HAS BEEN ON POINT SINCE DAY ONE. CHARLOTTE FLAIR, AND LEGACY, A DYNASTY, BUT MOMENTUM, THAT IS THE QUESTION. MOMENTUM, BECKY LYNCH HAS ALL OF THAT. I GIVE IT TO BECKY LYNCH. DAVID: MOMENTUM IS SO BIG, ESPECIALLY IN THIS BUSINESS. I THINK BACK TO BECKY LYNCH BEING THE FIRST EVER SMACKDOWN WOMEN’S CHAMPION. I SEE HOW FAR SHE’S COME. EARLIER, WHEN SHE ALMOST HAD THE MATCH IN SURVIVOR SERIES WITH RONDA ROUSEY, READY TO PROVE HERSELF. WINNER-TAKE-ALL. I’M GOING BECKY LYNCH. JONATHAN: TONIGHT WILL BE DRAMATIC AND HISTORIC. SETTLE IN AND REMEMBER WHERE YOU WERE. WRESTLEMANIA STARTS NOW.
