Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw. Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman open the show. Heyman introduces himself and Lesnar. Heyman said that he had a lot of busy to take care of tonight. He said that there was a conspiracy to take out Lesnar at the Royal Rumble, but that planned failed. Heyman said that Lesnar will get his revenge for the failed attempt. Heyman brought up Lesnar being featured in the main event of Fastlane. Heyman reminded us of the stipulation, which is the winner of that main event facing Triple H for the WWE Title at WrestleMania 32. Heyman promised that Lesnar would beat both Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose into suplex city. He promised that Lesnar with F-5 both Reigns and Ambrose then pin both men at the same time to go onto the main event of Mania and beat Triple H to become the new WWE Champion. Heyman said that Reigns already knows what it’s like to face Lesnar and Reigns needs to tell Ambrose what it’s like. Ambrose then interrupted by walking down to the ring. Ambrose and Lesnar had a face off. Ambrose asked Heyman who he was calling a nut job. Ambrose said that being in the presence of a beast is cosey. Ambrose said that he wasn’t crazy or stupid or scared of Lesnar. Ambrose said that he respects Lesnar and that he wants the WWE Title. Ambrose said he knew the beating he will receive from Reigns and Lesnar. Ambrose then begged Lesnar to take him to suplex city. Ambrose said that he is the Ironman of the WWE, and he will drag his broken body to Mania and beat Triple H. Ambrose then walked to the back. This led to Heyman and Lesnar also leaving.
