-Scott Stanford, David Otunga, Corey Graves, and Booker T hosted the show from the WWE Studios in Stamford, Connecticut. They hyped a special announcement that Vince McMahon will make regarding the Undertaker vs. Shane McMahon match at WrestleMania, and Dean Ambrose vs. Braun Strowman for Raw.
-They recapped Roman Reigns destroying Triple H on Raw last week. Stanford questioned how Reigns could be 100 percent at WrestleMania.
-A recap of the Shane and Taker segment from last week was shown. They included the Shane Shuffle, which should be erased from WWE history forever.
-The hosts hyped the New Day vs. League of Nations match for WrestleMania and said the tag titles will be on the line.
-Big E vs. Rusev was announced for Raw.
-Renee Young interviewed Lana, Tamina, and Naomi backstage at Raw. Paige, Alicia Fox, and Natalya showed up. They don’t like each other. Natalya said Brie Bella had a message that they could have a four-on-four match at WrestleMania. Lana pointed out they only had three on their side. Natalya said they better find someone else.
Powell’s POV: Lana’s comeback could have been, “Or you can sit your ass at home, Nattie,” but that would have been mean. Honestly, it’s great to see Natalya get on the WrestleMania card. All signs point to Summer Rae being the fourth member of the heel team.
-A recap of the Dean Ambrose and Brock Lesnar segments from last week were shown, along with Mick Foley gifting his barbwire baseball bat to Ambrose in a backstage segment.
-The hosts delivered some final hype to Raw to close the show.
