Monday Night Raw: 8 pm EST

Show opens up and The Shield enters through the crowd on their way to the ring for a farewell address. Roman Reigns shares his sentiment that if last night was the final showdown for The Shield as a team, then he has no regrets. And now they’re on the road to WrestleMania and Reigns will have his first singles match on Raw in 5 months. Reigns also shakes Rollins’ hand and says that he is going to defeat Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. They all put their fists together one more time.

Reigns and Ambrose take their leave but Rollins stays behind to cut a promo. However, Paul Heyman comes out to interrupt. The two trade barbs as Rollins reminds Heyman of all the guys Lesnar has had trouble with lately and assures him that he will be taking the title off his beast at ‘Mania. As Heyman starts to retort, the crowd chants “Slay the beast!” Heyman says that Lesnar didn’t have time to prepare for any of the opponents Rollins’ listed. The crowd boos and Rollins chuckles.

Suddenly, Shelton Benjamin attacks Rollins from behind and starts delivering some German suplexes. Benjamin leaves Rollins laid out in the ring as he takes his leave with a wry grin on his face.

Batista says he can try but by the time he gets there, he’ll be gone.
Batista again repeats for H to give him what he wants, the same thing he’s wanted for years.
