BWWE Raw is live tonight from American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Here is a quick preview video to get you ready for the show:
Per Vince McMahon, WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will appear tonight after making back-to-back no-shows the past two weeks on Raw, despite being advertised as part of the show. Last week, McMahon suspended Roman Reigns for making comments about WWE’s handling of the “entitled” champion. Also, Raw Women’s Champ Alexa Bliss tweeted she will end Asuka’s unbeaten streak tonight. Bliss will have Mickie James in her corner for the match. In addition, “Woken” Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt will finally have their “Ultimate Deletion” match in what has been a lackluster feud so far. Also, there is speculation The Undertaker could appear to answer John Cena’s WrestleMania challenge since the show is in Texas.
RAW General Manager Kurt Angle comes out to open the show.
Angle welcomes us and says he has some bad news to start – Roman Reigns is still suspended and he will not be here tonight. Fans cheer. Angle adds that Universal Champion Brock Lesnar has not made it to the arena yet but Vince McMahon has assured him that The Beast will be here. Angle brings up Braun Strowman winning last week’s tag team battle royal without a partner. Angle goes on about Braun but Reigns comes walking through the crowd, staring Angle down. Some fans boo as Reigns walks into the ring.
Angle asks what Reigns is doing here and says he’s trespassing, adding that security is ready for him. Reigns asks who cares as Lesnar hasn’t been here week after week, and someone has to be here to represent the WrestleMania 34 main event. Reigns asks where Lesnar is. Angle was told he was running a little late. Angle tells Reigns to be patient as he will get his hands on Lesnar in a few weeks but Reigns doesn’t care. Reigns says this is Dallas, he’s made a lot of memories here and he’s not leaving until he makes another tonight. Reigns grabs a steel chair and takes a seat in the ring, telling Angle to go in the back and do whatever he has to do to make it right. Angle walks to the back and Reigns takes his seat. We see men dressed in US Marshals uniforms walking out now
Reigns stands up as the Marshals enter the ring and read him his Miranda rights. Reigns warns the officers not to touch him but he’s placed in handcuffs, being arrested for trespassing. He looks to be leaving with them but he lays them all out instead. The music hits and out comes the WWE Universal Champion with Paul Heyman.
Lesnar rushes the ring and Reigns waits, still in handcuffs. Lesnar nails a big suplex and goes to work on Reigns with steel chair shots. Some fans boo. Officials come down to ringside but Lesnar keeps hitting Reigns. Lesnar launches Reigns with a German suplex as Heyman looks on from ringside, holding the title. Lesnar continues the assault and lands another German. Lesnar with another chair shot. Lesnar leaves the ring but comes back to deliver more steel chair shots while Reigns is down and cuffed. Lesnar leaves but comes back to the ring again. The Beast scoops Reigns for a big F5 this time. Lesnar marches up the ramp with the title as his music hits now. Paramedics come rushing past him with a stretcher. Officials and paramedics tend to Reigns in the ring now, loading him up on a stretcher. A “you deserve it” chant starts up from the crowd as Reigns is strapped onto the stretcher and taken away. They just get Reigns out of the ring when the music hits and out comes Lesnar again.
Lesnar knocks the stretcher over with Reigns still strapped to it. Lesnar talks some trash and drags the stretcher over. Reigns is yelling in pain, still strapped in and cuffed. Lesnar walks up the ramp to a mixed reaction as his music starts back up. We go to commercial
We go backstage where Roman is being wheeled out and into an ambulance.
This feeds into a video package covering recent developments in the women’s division.
Alexa Bliss makes her entrance for a match and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Alexa cuts a promo.
She says she gets it, last week she said some things about Nia Jax that were very hurtful and wrong. She didn’t know she had a worldwide audience listening, but that’s no excuse. She tries to claim that she and Mickie James were joking around and it was just girl talk, and she knows she got carried away in the moment and said things she shouldn’t have and there’s nothing else to say besides “I’m sorry.”
She sincerely apologizes… that she didn’t speak the truth sooner. Her apologizing? Be real, even the word sorry doesn’t fit in her vocabulary and she didn’t lose one ounce of sleep nor feel one ounce of remorse. Nia was humiliated in front of the entire world and Alexa loved every second of it. She never liked Jax, she used her! She says it felt good and she repeats it a little slower so Nia can understand.
How dumb do you have to be to believe that she’d be friends with someone like Nia. She feels so much better now that that’s off her chest, like a whole weight was lifted off her shoulders, three hundred pounds of sad, pathetic loser. Now that she doesn’t have Nia dragging her down she’s gonna do what no one else could and end Asuka’s undefeated streak.
Asuka makes her entrance, but the match will have to wait until after the break.
Raw Women’s Champ Alexa Bliss vs Asuka
Bliss is in control as we join the match, smashing Asuka’s face into the mat and wrenching her neck over the ropes. Asuka returns a body blow, a low kick, but Alexa stays on her and clobbers her on the mat before choking her over the middle rope. Putting boots to her in the corner, another choke, dumping the Empress of Tomorrow to the floor where Mickie runs over for a cheap shot while referee Chad Patton is occupied with the champ.
Outside, smashing Asuka’s face into the apron, mocking her, another face smash, dumping her back in the ring but the cover’s only good for one and Bliss grabs a rear chinlock. From there into a cover, no good, smashing her face into the mat again, drawing her up and Alexa locks the reverse chinlock on again. Asuka begins her comeback, off the ropes, hip attack, another one in the corner, rolling, right hands, pop-up knee to the face and off the ropes with a sliding knee… NOPE!
A kick fends Alexa off, Asuka perches up top but James runs interference and Bliss has a chance to knock her down with an elbow to the face! Booting Asuka to the floor, back inside, a cover comes up empty and this time it’s a rear chinlock to try and grind the Empress of Tomorrow down. Mat slam as a counter, Asuka throws kicks, a forearm, but Bliss throws hands and goes for another cover that can’t quite do it.
Alexa dumps Asuka to the floor and we go to break.
Back from commercial and Alexa is still in charge, stepping over Asuka to climb up top but she gets cut off. Climbing to meet her, thinking about a superplex, Bliss blocks and knocks her off with a headbutt… Yoshi Tonic gets two! Alexa throws a tantrum at the nearfall and goozles her but Asuka fights out. Bliss counters the flurry with a wicked neckbreaker on the knee, Asuka gets another sliding knee in return but it’s only good for a nearfall!
Asuka fired up, dragging the champ up, and the Asuka Lock is applied! A counter countered, two off a victory roll and Asuka grabs an ankle lock, Alexa’s able to get the ropes for a fraction of a second but Asuka rolls her back to the middle! Kicking her off, the Empress of Tomorrow stays on her! Crawling she gets the ropes and forces the break at last!
Bliss rolls to the floor clutching her ankle and referee Chad Patton begins his count. James helps her out. Bliss is counted out.
Winner: Asuka by count out
Nia Jax is here! She runs down but Alexa sacrifices Mickie and runs off! Jax gets ahold of her near the ringpost but again Bliss slips away and runs, she’s nearly over the barricade but Nia has her! James from behind, Alexa runs off and Jax throws Mickie into the ringpost! Nia screams in frustration as Bliss makes her way out into the crowd but eventually she realizes she can still give chase and does so, running Bliss off to the back!
Commentary hypes up John Cena wanting an answer from the Undertaker as well as Braun Strowman’s choice of tag team partner for later tonight before sending us to break.
Back from commercial, Kurt Angle is on the phone when Alexa Bliss rolls up to complain.
She says Nia should be suspended, no, arrested! Angle says he’s had enough arrests for tonight and Alexa isn’t gonna tell him what to do. He heard what she said last week and so did millions of young women all around the world. Bliss is supposed to be a role model, so he knows exactly what he’s going to do– give Nia a match for the Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania.
In the main arena, Braun Strowman makes his entrance to address his choice of tag team partners. He soaks in the atmosphere for a moment and says last week he won the tag team battle royal by himself. He carved a path of destruction and now he’s going to WrestleMania, but earlier tonight management informed him he’d have to have a partner. Now, he doesn’t think he NEEDS a partner, and as a matter of fact he knows he can win the tag titles by himself.
Enter the Bar. Sheamus begins, telling Braun he’s out of his mind if he thinks he can beat both of them by himself. He knows he won the battle royal by himself, but throwing opponents over the ring is completely different from defeating the greatest tag team in the history of WWE. But since tag teams are a little complicated for him, Cesaro will break it down.
It takes months and years to build chemistry and trust with your tag partner, you have to drive together, eat together, sleep together… Cesaro admonishes the crowd to grow up and Sheamus points out he meant room together and continues saying they optimize their sleep to optimize their training and he doesn’t care if his tag partner is Black Panther, Captain America, or Rick Sanchez, he doesn’t stand a chance against them, because they’ll still be tag champs when they leave.
They go into their catchphrase and Braun tells them to shut up. Sheamus is apoplectic, asking if he thinks he’s funny or tough and pointing out they’ve beaten every tag team on Raw and he and his partner will be no different. The beating Brock Lesnar gave to Roman Reigns tonight was nothing compared to what they’re gonna do to his team at WrestleMania.
Braun says they don’t need to worry about Roman and Braun because they need to worry about his partner at WrestleMania and the fact that Kurt Angle told him he gets a match against one of them right now. He asks which of the Bar want to get these hands! The Bar go to get in at the same time but Sheamus backs off, leaving Cesaro high and dry!
Braun Strowman vs Raw Tag Team Champ Cesaro
Braun puts Cesaro in the corner before taking him out for a hammer whip. Whip to a body avalanche, he dumps Cesaro to the floor and we go to break
Back from commercial and Braun is in control, ramming Cesaro into the posts when he gets a few kicks off to back the monster off. Uppercut in the corner, arm wrench, punch to the face, looking for a small package but Strowman blocks. Cesaro floats over, sidestep and a low bridge, a boot to the face, off the ropes with a dropkick that sends Braun into the barricade!
He puts Cesaro into the barricade in return, Sheamus tries for a distraction but Braun holds fast and puts the Swiss Superman’s kidneys into the barricade! Back inside, Cesaro sidesteps a charge and Strowman eats post hard! A dropkick follows, uppercuts, thinking about the Neutralizer but Braun manhandles him over the ropes and to the floor!
Neck snap, Cesaro back into it, duck a lariat, springboard corkscrew uppercut… NOPE! Another Neutralizer attempt, back body drop, duck the lariat, springboard… BRAUN SWATS HIM OUT OF MID-AIR WITH A PUNCH! Corner lariat, up on his shoulders, Sheamus runs interference and Cesaro’s able to slip off his back. Outside, Braun steamrolls around the corner and runs Sheamus over!
Cesaro sidesteps a charge and tries to sunset flip Strowman but he gets lifted up. Uppercuts and kicks, diving crossbody, Braun catches him and hits a Running Powerslam for the victory.
Winner: Braun Strowman
Braun heads up the ramp and poses in victory while Sheamus checks on his buddy.
Commentary hypes up the Ultimate Deletion and we get a video package of Matt Hardy inviting the WWE Universe into his home to meet his platoon. His beautiful wife, Queen Rebecca, King Maxel, Lord Wolfgang, and says everything he does, he does for them. He addresses Vanguard-1 and tells him to scan the Hardy property non-stop for an invader, the consumer of terrestrial entities.
He asks Senor Benjamin to prepare the battlefield for ANNIHILATION and we pan out and go to break.
Back from break and we have a tag match.
The Revival (Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder) vs. Titus Worldwide (Titus O’Neil & Apollo)
Wilder and O’Neil to start, Titus turns it around, chop in the corner, Dawson interferes and gets stacked up for a double chop! Looking for Clash of the Titus, denied, clubbing blows and a quick tag to Scott. Assisted atomic drop, roll through into punches, putting boots to him in the corner, tag back to Dash. Keeping the pressure up, boot, leg pick, tag back to Dawson and O’Neil’s able to break away from the double-team and tag Apollo in!
In hot with kicks, off the ropes, double dropkick, whip across, jumping lariat for Dawson into a kip-up and a standing moonsault… NOPE! Running Wilder off, Scott from behind with rights, trading, backslide attempt, small package, only good for two! Dash runs around outside, pulls Titus down and rams him into the barricade, eliciting a plancha from Crews!
Dawson in, Apollo forearms him back, diving crossbody, only good for two! Jumping enzuigiri, Crews has his finish set up but Wilder gets the tag! Off the ropes and The Revival hits Shatter Machine for the pin.
Winner: The Revival
The Revival are interviewed after their victory about their path to WrestleMania. Wilder says there’s no tag team on earth more qualified than they are, and Dawson adds that if Braun decided to step into their world, they’re gonna compete in his, so they declare their intent to be the first tag team to ever win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal in Memory of Andre the Giant!
This is followed by the Hall of Fame package for the World’s Strongest Man, Mark Henry.
Commentary hypes up a women’s tag team match and sends us to break.
Back from commercial, we get a video package celebrating Women’s History Month by way of the female superstars of WWE, past and present.
Bayley makes her entrance for her tag team match and is followed after by her partner, Sasha Banks.
Sasha is on the mic and says she was raised to talk things out face to face, and whatever is going on between them, she swears she wants to fix it. She understands that she hurt Bayley’s feelings at Elimination Chamber but she has to understand that was every woman for herself and she wasn’t trying to betray their friendship, just win the title just as she’s going to win the battle royal at WrestleMania.
Last week Bayley left her high and dry, and that makes twice that Bayley left her, but since she’s the bigger person and considers her like a sister, Banks forgives her. Sasha extends a hand but Bayley turns and gets a microphone of her own. She says the night after Elimination Chamber and their tag, she was angry and acted impulsively. She could have cost her the match but she didn’t, and the next week she helped her win but took off when the match was over because…
Because she can’t get over what Sasha did to her at Elimination Chamber. It’s not even about what she did, it’s how she did it. She gets it, Banks knows her better than anyone and she knows Sasha does what she has to to win but the look on her face after she did it, the glare in her eyes and the smirk on her face ate at Bayley’s core. She literally grabbed her hand, kicked her down the pod, and watched her fall, smiling.
She can’t get the picture out of her head, and Banks is supposed to be her best friend, so why was knocking her down so easy, like it meant nothing?
Sasha doesn’t have time to respond because Absolution make their entrance. Paige is sorry if they’re trying to find some resolution but it’s time for a match and her ladies are gonna show these little girls how real women settle a score.
Absolution (Sonya Deville & Mandy Rose) vs. Sasha Banks & Bayley
Banks and Deville to start, Sasha getting her right into the corner for shoulder thrusts. Duck a lariat, big slap, back to the corner, Sonya ducks the charge and clears the apron before dumping Banks to the floor. Absolution pose in the ring and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Rose is in control on Bayley with a reverse chinlock but the Hugger’s able to post to her feet and break with elbows only to get taken to the corner. Turning it around, smashing Mandy’s face into the turnbuckles, going for the cover but it’s only good for two. Off the ropes, sliding back elbow, sliding lariat, another cover comes up empty.
Off the ropes, blind tag from the Boss and she steals the cover but only gets one. Corner double knees, the second set get sidestepped and countered with a mat slam, and Absolution get the quick tag and put boots to Banks. Deville locks the bodyscissors on and adds a partial crossface but Sasha’s able to turn her around and post to her feet before throwing her off.
Charging in, spinebuster connects but it’s only good for two and Sonya follows it with a kick and a tag. Rose in, whip into a wicked knee strike… NOPE! Mounted forearms to the face follow, another cover comes up empty, arm wringer into an arm-trap abdominal stretch but the Boss is able to get out and counter with a hip toss! Mandy with a dropkick, she gets Sasha into her corner and tags Deville back in.
They put boots to her, quick tag, Banks gets away and lands a kick, crawling… but Sonya cuts her off! Back elbow, a kick, now Bayley gets the tag! In hot with lariats, boots to the midsection in the corner, she dumps Deville to the apron and hits the Stunner! Back suplex, back elbow in the corner, to the section, diving uppercut… Rose breaks the pin up!
Sasha beats on Rose, Bayley gets a backslide but referee John Cone is busy with Sasha and she can’t get the full three! Bayley confronts Sasha, they yell at each other and fend Mandy off but Sonya comes from behind. Deville clobbers Bayley with a roundhouse kick for the pinfall.
Commentary reminds us that John Cena is looking to the Undertaker for answers and we go to break.
Back from commercial, John Cena makes his entrance.
He says this isn’t your typical Monday Night Raw, no, everything is bigger in Texas. Last week he put out a WrestleMania challenge to the Undertaker and gave him a choice, yes or no, and tonight we all find out the Undertaker’s response. He still finds it amazing that the Undertaker has been in hiding so long simply because he feels embarrassed. The crowd boos and he agrees and says Taker thinks we think he doesn’t belong any more and Cena says that’s absolutely ridiculous.
As long as there is a WWE, the name Undertaker has meaning, John says. He’s asked around the world, you saw it weeks ago, you saw it last week, the entire audience brought to their feet at the mere mention of the name Undertaker! So before he gets to the Deadman’s response, he wants to know how Dallas feels about it. It is a positive response that he gets.
He says the hearing is the first thing to go but he calls out a guy dressed as the Undertaker and asks again and gets an even more positive response. Get ready and hold onto your seats, because the Undertaker’s response to his challenge at WrestleMania is… nothing. Silence. Not a yes, not a no, just nothing, and that’s the biggest mistake Taker has ever made.
He said it last week and he meant it, he’d be happy to go to WrestleMania as a fan, but for Undertaker to refuse to get off his ass and give him an answer is damn disrespectful, not just to Cena himself, but to all of us as well, to every person who’s ever stood up and cheered for the Undertaker, to all of us over the years who followed and believed in the Streak, to every beating heart that took an oversized mortician and turned him into a god!
Cena says without us there’s no streak, no rest in peace, and there’s damn sure no Undertaker. So, Mr. Undertaker, after all of these people have given you everything they have, you can’t give them a yes or a no? If you’re retired, say no and be retired and everybody will understand, but if you’re not retired, damnit man, say yes and give the world what they want to see!
But what do you do? You sit there and drown in your own insecurity, not the god they made you but the man you allowed yourself to become. And that man, Undertaker, is a coward. He reiterates that the Undertaker is a coward and begs to be proven wrong with any answer, he doesn’t even need a yes or no, do something stupid like throw a casket out here or smoke or lightning, don’t just sit there and do nothing!
A “Do something!” chant breaks out but Cena is left wanting. There it is, he says, the exact moment the Undertaker let everyone who believes in him down. Undertaker isn’t a god and right now he can barely call himself a man.
Enter Kane! Cena’s excited and points out that Kane is the Undertaker’s brother and asks if he was sent by his brother to give us the response we deserve. He asks Kane if it’s a yes or a no and holds the mic up to him… BUT KANE RESPONDS WITH A CHOKESLAM!
We get no further answer.
Commentary tosses to a recap of the opening segment because Raw is three hours long. They then inform us that Roman is under observation at the local medical facility and will not be released tonight. They hype up Ronda Rousey and the Ultimate Deletion (that’s a hell of a combo), Miz and the Miztourage make their entrance and we go to break.
Back from commercial we’re shown a sporting man in the front row and go to a quick clip of Broken Matt Hardy hanging out with George Washington.
Miz is in the ring to cut a promo. He says it’s three weeks from WrestleMania and he gets no respect. Promotion is in full effect and he’s nowhere to be found on the posters and can’t even get on WrestleMania magazine?! The WWE Champion AJ Styles, Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, they get to be on the cover and in singles matches and he has the deck stacked against him in a triple threat?
And you know what irks him the most? Is he the bad guy? The crowd chants in the affirmative and he again decries the lack of respect. Just because you buy action figures of Finn Balor and Seth Rollins that makes them the heroes? Last week he exposed both men for liars, but beneath the fake smiles and shows of respect they hate each other and all it took was a brief nudge to get them to blows.
And at WrestleMania that brief nudge will turn into a shove for Tyler Black and Prince Devitt as they get sent back to the bingo halls. And if Miz can’t get our respect he’ll take it when he emerges from WrestleMania as the longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion of all time.
Balor Club make their entrance but Seth Rollins comes down before the match can begin and joins the commentary desk to send us to break.
Intercontinental Champ The Miz & The Miztourage (Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel) vs. Balor Club (Finn Balor, Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows)
Gallows is in control on Axel and gets a cover that comes up empty. Tag to Balor, in with a diving smash to the arm, chop in the corner, whip across, another chop, tag to Dallas but Finn stays on him with arm drags into an armbar! Bo backs him in the corner, tag to Miz, putting boots to Balor, whip reversed, big knee and punches to the face before backing Finn into his corner and hitting repeated shoulder thrusts.
Tag to Curtis, snapmare into a running somersault cutter, reverse chinlock applied, Balor gets to his feet but Axel takes him right back down. To his feet again, kick to the back of the knee gets him down, Curtis goes for a powerbomb but Finn rolls out and hits a dropkick. Reaching for the tag, Dallas tries to block, punches, into the Miztourage’s corner and Bo puts boots to him.
Miz with a choke while referee Dan Engler is distracted, tag back to Axel. Posing with Miz, they mock Balor’s entrance but Finn comes back with a vengeance of forearms. Takedown into the corner, sidestep the charge, tag to Anderson! In hot with lariats, whip reversed, Sick Kick connects and he clears the apron. Sidestep a charge, bicycle kick in the corner, Karl pops up to the second and hits the diving neckbreaker… NOPE!
Knocking Dallas off the apron, perched up top, diving crossbody gets a nearfall. Charging in, uppercut, Miz tags in, kicks Machine Gun’s leg out from under him and hits the basement DDT for a nearfall that sends us to break.
Back from commercial, Anderson and Axel are unsteady on their feet when Machine Gun hits the spinning spinebuster. Tags made, Balor runs over Dallas, clears the apron, double leg into the double stomp and Bo rolls to the floor. Finn ducks Axel, puts him outside with his partner… TOPE CON GIRO! Back in, Headed up top but Miz provides the distraction and Curtis crotches him on the turnbuckle.
The A-Lister tags in, Skull-Crushing Finale reversed to a victory roll… NOPE! Another try, out with a back elbow, Miz with an O’Connor roll, the kickout knocks Axel down, Finn capitalizes. Balor then pins the Intercontinental Champ.
Winner: Finn Balor, Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows
The Miztourage hit the ring and attack Balor post-match! They dump Anderson out as Miz steps on Finn’s neck. Back in, they hoist Balor up but Rollins leaves commentary to make the save! He clears the Miztourage out, low superkick, off the ropes… BLACKOUT! Seth and Finn jaw at each other over the Intercontinental Champion’s unconscious body.
We go to a video of the Lake of Reincarnation earlier today with Matt Hardy taking Skarsgard out for a nice day on the lake to find Nirvana.
Commentary promises us Ronda Rousey and we go to break.
Back from the break and we get a new video package on Ronda Rousey.
“Woken” Matt Hardy vs. Bray Wyatt – Final Deletion Match
We cut to The Hardy Compound in Cameron, NC for The Ultimate Deletion. Bray Wyatt is shown approaching the gates of the property. It’s dark and Wyatt has his lantern. Vanguard 1 appears and scans Wyatt. A graphic of Matt Hardy’s head appears from the drone and welcomes Wyatt to The Hardy Compound, telling him to follow the music. We hear a piano and Wyatt starts walking.
We see Matt on his property, standing on the apron of a wrestling ring. Queen Rebecca, wife Reby Hardy, is next to the ring with her piano. Wyatt stands on the apron and Matt says he knew he would come. Referee Shawn Bennett is in the ring. Wyatt and Hardy stare at each other. We go to commercial with Wyatt still on the apron.
Back from the break and the announcers lead us to tonight’s main event, filmed a few weeks back at The Hardy Compound. Cole calls it obnoxious and surreal, among other things, but Graves defends it. Cole says he’s sorry for what we’re about to watch. We go back to the ring at the compound and the referee calls for the bell. Wyatt and Hardy laugh while circling each other. Matt says that’s enough as this type of laughter is over. They lock up and go at it. Vanguard 1 hovers above.
Matt gets the upperhand and chants “delete!” while Wyatt is in the corner. Wyatt goes for Sister Abigail and ends up taking Hardy down. Bray brings a steel chair from under the ring while Matt stumbles to his feet in the ring. Bray kisses the chair while Matt tells the drone to initiate. Wyatt wonders what is about to happen. Vanguard 1 sets off a bunch of fireworks at ringside. This distracts Wyatt and Matt drops him. Matt with chair shots now. Wyatt ends up on the outside of the ring, in the grass and weeds.
They brawl around and Matt goes down. Matt asks Bray if this reminds him of anything. Bray has flashbacks to his own structure that was burnt down a while back. Matt decks him and tells him to wake up. Wyatt blocks a shot and turns a kendo stick around on Hardy. The referee watches the action closely as they struggle against a barn-like structure. This area is apparently called The Dilapidated City. Wyatt screams out while having a flashback about the fire that he experienced a while back. Wyatt goes hunting for Matt in a graveyard type area, called The Land of Obsolete Men. Wyatt has no luck but finds Matt elsewhere in the woods. Wyatt works Hardy around and the referee asks if he can continue. Wyatt with a 2 count.
Wyatt mounts Hardy and pounds on him, laughing. Wyatt brings Matt over to another area and throws him into a garage door. The door raises and there’s another wrestling ring with a piano, a riding lawn mower and some other items. This is The Dome of Deletion. Wyatt keeps control as he fights Hardy into the Dome. Matt turns it around and grabs a ladder, ramming it into Wyatt a few times. Matt welcomes Wyatt to The Dome of Deletion and continues the attack with the ladder. Matt goes to ride the mower over Wyatt but Wyatt turns upside down and then kicks Matt off. Bray slams Matt’s face on top of the mower and brings him into the ring.
Wyatt keeps control and Matt falls back to the floor. Wyatt covers for a 2 count on the concrete. Wyatt talks to Matt and says this is his ultimate solution. Wyatt tells Matt to let’s go home now and finish it. Wyatt drags Matt out of the Dome. Vanguard 1 sees Wyatt carrying Matt to The Lake of Reincarnation and dropping him in the grass. Matt calls on Skarsgard, the dilapidated boat. Wyatt keeps up the attack and goes to hit Sister Abigail into the boat but here comes the drone. Wyatt grabs it and laughs at it. Wyatt pushes the drone away and says he will deal with it later. Wyatt turns the boat over but there is Senor Benjamin, not Matt. Senor sings “whole world in his hands” at Wyatt and tosses what looks like a mini-globe at him. Jeff Hardy appears beside Wyatt’s face and also sings “whole world in his hands” as Matt reappears off the distractions and drops Wyatt for the pin.
Winner: “Woken” Matt Hardy
After the count, Matt approaches Wyatt and shoves him back into the lake. Matt calls on Benjamin to retrieve Wyatt from the lake. Wyatt is not there. Matt declares that The Great War is over and that Bray Wyatt has been deleted. Matt chants “delete!” a few times as RAW goes off the air.
