Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw, there is a recap video of last weekâ€™s episode of Raw. The entire roster is on the stage with Vince and Stephanie McMahon walking out to the ring. Vince hyped that anyone on the active roster could be WWE Champion. Stephanie said that Roman Reigns might be walking into the Royal Rumble as champion, but will not be leaving as the champion. Vince ran down the rules of the Rumble match. Vince pointed out Dolph Ziggler while Stephanie pointed out Kevin Owens as possible winners. This led to Bray Wyatt with The Wyatt Family appearing at ringside. Bray said that it could be anyone but Reigns. Vince also said it could be Brock Lesnar. This led to Roman Reigns walking out to the ring. Vince asked why he was out here. Reigns responded with a question, â€śwhat happens if I win?â€ť Stephanie laughed at him about the questions. Vince booked half of the roster vs. Reigns for tonight. Stephanie said it could be against anyone including Dean Ambrose. Vince said that Dean was in the first match. Sheamus attacked Ambrose from behind.

The match is already underway when we cut back from break. The two exchange right hands. Sheamus dumped him to the floor then started to land a series of strikes to the chest of Ambrose. Sheamus gets some offense in for a few minutes. Moments later, Ambrose fought back and hit an outside dive taking out Sheamus.
