As the Wrestlemania sign hangs in the opening shot, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H make their way to the ring.
We see footage from Brock Lesnar’s victory over Big Show and the barrage of chair shots by Lesnar on Show.
Stephanie and Hunter do the ‘Official Point to Wrestlemania Sign’ gesture and then Stephanie welcomes everyone to Raw. She says last night we witnessed one of the most satisfying, epic Royal Rumble pay per views in history.
Hunter whimpers and wonders if people did not get what they wanted. Hunter says that is too bad. He says that it was a wonderful night. Randy Orton defended his WWE World Championship by defeating John Cena. It was a night when Brock Lesnar destroyed the Big Show. It was a night where their good friend returned after four years to defeat 29 other superstars and win the Royal Rumble. Batista secured his spot in the main event of Wrestlemania.
Stephanie says that there is one more stop on the Road to Wrestlemania and that is the Elimination Chamber. Randy Orton will defend the WWE World Championship in the Elimination Chamber.
Daniel Bryan’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring.
The crowd shows their approval for Daniel and Daniel tells them to stop the ‘Yessing’ because Hunter and Stephanie don’t like it. They don’t like the ‘Daniel Bryan’ chants either so they better stop because they don’t want to make the Authority mad.
Stephanie says the people would never fall for Daniel’s cheap parlor tricks but she was wrong.
Daniel says that he had one of the toughest matches in his career. Win, lose, or draw, when you talk about the greatest moments of the Royal Rumble, you are talking about his match.
Hunter says that it was a good little effort.
Daniel says that when people talk about the biggest disappointments in the Rumble, they are probably talking about him not being in the Rumble match. Daniel says that he came to them time and time again and wanted to be in the Royal Rumble. The people wanted him to be in the Royal Rumble.
There is a Yes Movement. Every time he knocked on their door to be in the Royal Rumble, Hunter and Stephanie said no.
Stephanie says that they have to look out for the health and well-being of the superstars and divas. They did not want Daniel to be put in jeopardy.
Daniel asks Hunter and Stephanie how many times has he wrestled all members of the Shield or Wyatt Family. How many times has he wrestled more than once.
Hunter says that they did not want him to wrestle more than once last night.
Daniel says that they are not looking at what is best for business.
Stephanie says that Daniel has a very myopic view. Did everyone come to this arena to see only Daniel Bryan? The crowd chants ‘Yes’.
Daniel asks the people if they came to see Randy Orton and the crowd chants ‘no’. Did they come to see Triple H? ‘NO’. People can come and watch whoever they want. The people get to pick their favorites. Daniel tells Hunter and Stephanie to listen to the people.
Stephanie says that she cannot figure out what everyone is saying because they are saying different things.
Daniel brings up the fact that they announced that the WWE World Championship will be defended at the Elimination Chamber and he wants to be in that match.
Daniel says that he wants the match, the people want this match. Daniel says that they should not leave this ring until he gets what he wants.
Hunter and Daniel get face to face.
Hunter says that it sounds good, but they are not the only people in the ring and it appears that they have company.
The Shield make their way to the ring. Daniel Bryan gets a chair and he waits for them to make their way over the ringside barrier, no matter how they do it.
Reigns hits Bryan from behind and then it is a three on one attack because the chair is not in the picture.
Sheamus makes his way to the ring and he takes on the Shield but they make it a three on one attack on him.
John Cena makes his way to the ring and he battles with the Shield and it is a three on three battle.

Brad reminds us what his name and job is before he introduces the WWE World Champion, Randy Orton.
Orton says the champ . . . is here. Despite what most of you thought was going to happen last night, he beat John Cena again and he has the two titles in his grasp. Some might say it was a hollow victory but he does not give a damn because he won.
Then he gets to work this morning and he finds out in less than a month, he has to defend his title against five other superstars in the Elimination Chamber. Randy wants to know whose idea that was. Randy demands respect because he is the Champion of Champions. He is the face of the WWE.
Batista’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring.
Batista congratulates Randy on his victory. It was a hell of a performance last night. Like he said last week, he is back for three reasons. To win the Royal Rumble, to headline Wrestlemania, and walk out of Wrestlemania as the WWE World Champion. Two down and one to go. He does not care who he faces at the Superdome. It is not personal. He does not care if it is Randy Orton, the Shield, John Cena, Daniel Bryan, or the winner of the Elimination Chamber match.
On April 6th, he doesn’t care if Randy or the Authority like it or not, he is walking out of Wrestlemania as the WWE World Champion and there is nothing that Orton can do about that.
Brock Lesnar’s music plays and he comes to the stage with Paul Heyman and Brock does the Brock Bounce. Brock makes his way to the ring.
Paul Heyman tells Brad who he is and he stands before Brad as the advocate for BROCK LESNAR. His client has authorized him to inform Brad that his patience is running thin. Brad needs to go to the Authority that they have two choices tonight. Choice Number One is that since Brad is the GM and he is a promoter, let’s make history tonight in Cleveland, Ohio to authorize a match with the reigning and defending WWE Champion against the Beast Incarnate BROCK LESNAR.
Paul says that his client is not an unreasonable man so he is just suggesting. The other option is to put the obvious Number One Contender Brock Lesnar against the So Called Number One Contender Batista.
No matter who makes the decision, the winner is the WWE Universe.
Paul wants their answer tonight . . . or else.
