Corbin comes out and says he may not run Raw anymore, Braun says yeah that’s because he got fired, Corbin says Braun can’t beat Lesnar and says to get it through his skull and while he’s doing that he’s going to win the Rumble & go where Strowman never will the main event of WrestleMania, that sets off Braun and he gives chase, Braun asks The Bollywood Boyz which way he went then launches Sunil across the catering table

A crew member knocks on Alexa Bliss’ door with her latte and informs her she’s up next. With no answer he opens the door and steps in, only for her to be in a state of partial dress, holding her top up with her hands. He apologizes profusely as she tells him to set her coffee on the table and leave

Alexa Bliss makes her entrance.

She talks about Mr. McMahon announcing the women’s tag titles, and she has the inside information. In just five weeks, three teams each from Raw and SmackDown will compete inside the Elimination Chamber, with the winning team crowned the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions! And she has the belts to reveal!

Paul Heyman interrupts with his usual introductory spiel and they take seats on the Moment of Bliss set on the stage. Alexa says it’s been a wild night and asks what’s going on in Paul’s head. He says emotions play no part in it, it’s his strategy that practically guarantees that Brock Lesnar will retain the Universal Championship. You can line up all four of these top challengers and Brock would eat through them, individually or en masse.

But why clean out the entire heavyweight division? So there can only be one. And who will it be? John Cena, the pontiff of Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect? Drew McIntyre, who he’d be lying if he didn’t admit he’s had his eye on him and who’s guaranteed to be champion some day, just not now? Baron Corbin, not the most popular guy with the fans, but…

Otis Dozovic has wandered out to the stage. He’s making noises and shaking, it’s great. BOO SHACKA LOO-A! YEAH! Tucker Knight runs out to corral him as Dozer shouts “Pretty lady!” at Alexa and referees Darrick Moore and Dan Engler as well as road agent five-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion Adam Pearce.
