The show started as Chris Jericho came out to the arena. Michael Cole reminded that Chris Jericho won the Slammy Award for the Extreme Moment of the year last week for his suicidal jump on Bray Wyatt from on top of a Steel Cage. Fandango took the Slammy away as Jericho was not present.
Chris Jericho entered the ring and welcomed the fans to ‘Raw is Jericho.’ He said that he was the special guest general manager for the night and he would make the show about the fans. He reminded that he won a Slammy Award last week for the Extreme moment of the year and he thanked the fans for that.
Jericho said that he could not make last night but Fandango accepted his award. He mocked Fandango and said that he wanted his Slammy back. He wanted Fandango to come out to the arena.
Paul Heyman came out to the arena. He said that he was a Jericoholic and he knew what it took to manage Extreme Show so Jericho should let him be the General manager of Raw. He congratulated Jericho for winning the Slammy but he said if anybody deserved a Slammy of anything with a word Extreme that is Heyman. He claimed to be the father of Extreme.
Jericho said that Heyman might have given him a good chance at the Extreme Championship Wrestling but he owed him 200 dollars. He said that he wanted his money back and started pinching Heyman.
Heyman said that he was no wrestler, he was just an advocate and he was there to to advocate on behalf of his client the reigning, defending and Undisputed WWE World Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. He said that he also wanted to address Seth Rollins later on that night. He said that Seth Rollins had a chance of becoming a true Paul Heyman guy by taking John Cena out of the title equation from Royal Rumble and the WWE World Heavyweight championship and failed in his task.
Seth Rollins came out to the arena. He told Heyman if he had anything to say about him then he should speak on his face. He said that he was screwed twice in two months. First at Survivor Series Sting screwed him from winning the biggest match of his career and next was at TLC when Roman Reigns came out to screw him. He said that John Cena could never beat him without taking help from anyone and he would like to face Cena in a rematch but on that night since he was tired of performing last week.
John Cena came out to the arena. Cena entered the ring and told Rollins that they had a match last night which Rollins lost, so Rollins must not be giving excuses. He said that Rollins still did not learn what it took to be a man. A man did not give excuses for his defeats, a man always picked himself up and prepare himself for fight. Even if that fight was with a beast as he indicated Brock Lesnar.
John Cena said that Rollins gave him a good idea of a rematch with him. He said that Rollins was right, Cena could not beat him without help from someone, because Cena could not make matches. Chris Jericho could since he was the in charge of the show. Jericho made the match official for the night between Cena and Rollins and stipulated it to be a Steel Cage match. He also made a match between himself and Heyman where the stipulation would be decided on the WWE App by the fans.
Match 1 – Luke Harper and The Big Show defeated Eric Rowan and the WWE Intercontinental champion Dolph Ziggler. It was a very good match to start things off. Big Show pinned Eric Rowan with the Knock out punch to earn the victory for his team.
Match 2 – Alicia Fox and Natalya defeated Brie Bella and the WWE Divas champion Nikki Bella by submission. Natalya made Brie Bella submit with the Sharpshooter.
Chris Jericho welcomed the fans to the Highlight Reel. Rusev was scheduled to be his guest of the night. Before calling Rusev he made fun of him, he made fun of Rusev’s attire. After that he called Rusev out.
WWE United States champion Rusev came out to the arena along with his valet Lana. Lana reminded that Rusev remained undefeated after he crushed Jack Swagger again as she addressed Swagger as ‘stupid.’ Lana then wanted Jericho to ask if he had anything to ask.
Jericho again mocked Rusev, he mentioned of his outfit again and compared with girls’ outfit. He asked Rusev why did he look so angry all the time, he kept mocking Rusev along with Lana. Lana got angry told Jericho to shut up. Jericho made fun of them again as he said that there something might be going on between the two of them, he said that the scary man called Rusev might something in his heart for his valet Lana and he sang ‘Rusev and Lana sitting in a tree, K I S S I N G, first comes love, then…..’ he wanted the fans to guess what was next.
He said that the guy who looked like an unwashed Cab Driver might have a thing for Lana. He kept making fun of them as Lana screamed him to shut up. Jericho mimicked her. Rusev took the mic in his hand. He wanted to keep Jericho’s mouth shut because he talked too much. He said Rusev might crush him now. Jericho said that it was like every time he came out somebody wanted to beat him. On the same note, every time Rusev came out to the arena, somebody wanted to beat him too. He said that he knew the guy was back in the locker room who wanted to fight him right here right now.
Ryback came out to the arena. He quickly entered the ring and confronted Rusev. Rusev looked to be in a fighting mood but Lana prevented him. She asked Rusev to leave the ring for then. Rusev and Lana left as Ryback stood inside the ring. So a feud between Ryback and Rusev is next, and it would surely be for the WWE United States championship. This would be a feud that fans would really love to see, and it looks like they were going to face other at Royal Rumble for the United States championship. We hope they would arranged this feud well.
Match 3 – The New Day (Big E and Xavier Woods) defeated Gold and Stardust. It was a good match. Xavier Woods pinned Goldust to earn the victory for his team.
Backstage Renee Young interviewed The Miz and Damien Mizdow. Renee asked Young on his feeling of facing Jimmy Uso later on that night. Miz said that a long time ago in a far away land there was a man named Jimmy Uso who was tag team champion. But his jealousy torned him and now Miz was tag team champion, he was the one in Hollywood. He was accompanying his wife Naomi for a movie premiere record launch but Jimmy Uso was preventing Naomi from becoming a star.
Backstage Adam Rose looked to be dancing with his Rosebuds. He told his rosebuds that they were going to have their biggest party today. Kane interfered them and told Rose that Rose had a match next. Rose asked who would be his opponent. Kane revealed himself to be his opponent. Kane said that he did not like Adam Rose’s rosebuds, and certainly he did not like Adam Rose. He concluded the discussion by saying the party was over.
Match 4 – Kane defeated Adam Rose. It was a very short match where Kane easily beat Rose. When Kane was about to Choke Slam Rose, the Bunny tried to interfere, Kane choked him too, and Choke Slammed both Rose and Bunny. After pinning Rose, Kane nailed the Bunny with the Tomb Stone Pile Driver……
