The fallout from the Royal Rumble! For all your Rumble needs, go here.

PROMO (In-Ring): Kevin Owens starts off the show after successfully retaining his Universal Championship last night. He is of course joined by his best friend, Chris Jericho. He says that last night he proved everybody wrong by beating Roman, and most notably he proved Mick Foley wrong. He then thanks Chris Jericho for helping him win with his moral support and friendship, and he moves on to what Jericho did last night. Y2J made history last night by becoming the guy that has accumulated the most amount of time in Royal Rumbles. 4 hours, 56 minutes, and 12 seconds. Lasting 61 minutes in last nights Rumble by starting at number 2, and the only reason he didn't win was because he was suffering from vertigo from being in the shark cage. Braun Strowman joins the festivities, the man who actually helped KO win last night when he put Roman through a table. Kevin gets ready to thank him, but Braun says he didn't do it for the thanks. He can't stand Roman, and he wants the title shot KO promised. KO says he never asked for his help or promised him a title shot. They play the footage of Owens offering the title shot, and Strowman wants it tonight. That spawns GM Mick Foley. Foley says he did offer the shot, and KO says he can't expect him to defend his belt after a match like he had last night. Foley makes the match official. I'm sure Reigns won't get involved at all, I say sarcastically.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Chris Jericho vs. Sami Zayn

RESULTS: Sami Zayn wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: As good as you'd expect from these two.

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (Backstage): Cesaro & Sheamus are arguing backstage. Bayley comes in and separates them and tells them they all need to be on the same page for their mixed tag match against Anderson & Gallows and Charlotte. The three come in and call them the loser support group.

VIDEO PACKAGE: They play a video package of the budding rivalry between HHH & Seth Rollins.

PROMO (Backstage): Stephanie is on the phone, but is interrupted by KO who is complaining about his upcoming match with Braun Strowman. He says he went through hell last night and can't do this tonight. Stephanie says she had no clue this was coming, and after she handles this stuff with Seth Rollins she will talk to Mick about cancelling his match.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Tony Nese vs. Mustafa Ali

RESULTS: Tony Nese wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Nothing special. Average cruiserweight match.

PROMO (In-Ring): Austin Aries interviews Nese about having no charisma, and Nese proves it by not answering.

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (In-Ring): Stephanie and Seth Rollins go face to face to talk about HHH. Seth comes out first, and Seth says he knows Steph wanted to call him out first but not even billion dollar princesses get what they want. Stephanie joins him, and starts by saying Hunter isn't here. Seth doesn't care about Stephanie, and just wants her to let her husband off his leash. Steph says that HHH is scared. Scared that Seth will bring out a bad side in him, and because of that Stephanie asked him to stay away. She reminds him that since he turned his back on The Authority, Seth hasn't done a thing. He should offer an apology to her, her husband, and the crowd. Seth apologizes, but its for showing HHH's true colors. He went to NXT to call him out, but he sent security on him instead. That isn't The Game thats just a "scared dude". Seth is the greatest threat to his legacy that HHH has ever seen and all the McMahon's know it. Stephanie says the only thing Seth is an architect of is his own demise. Seth says NXT was just the start. Soon it will be WWE headquarters and board meetings. If that doesn't do it, he will show up at their house and maybe her kids answer the door. Stephanie admits she lied. HHH is on his way, and he is coming for Rollins.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Cesaro, Sheamus, & Bayley vs. Gallows, Anderson, & Charlotte

RESULTS: Bayley pins Charlotte.
THOUGHTS: It doesn't matter because Charlotte will just keep winning a PPV's when she shouldn't.

PROMO (Backstage): Stephanie gets on Mick about putting KO in a title match against Braun. Mick goes back to the fact that HHH's music got involved in a match, and Mick says he isn't stupid so she shouldn't treat him like he is. He defends his match saying that it should be a good one, and slyly throws in that the only way it could be ruined is if someone plays HHH's music and ruins the show. Mick offers a high five, is rejected, and walks away. So there must still be a match.

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (In-Ring): It is time for Nevilles coronation as King of the Cruiserweights after winning the Cruiserweight Championship at the Royal Rumble. This is basically just Neville yelling at everyone for not believing in him or respecting him, and now he is the champ. Then comes Rich Swann saying he has his rematch on the way. Swann says that Neville and his paranoia are for naught as no one is out to get him and even he believes that he is one of the best every time he steps between the ropes. And at the Royal Rumble he proved he is the better man. Swann offers a handshake, but Neville says that he should bow to his king. Swann turns to walk away, and Neville strikes. Swann stands tall.

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (Backstage): Sasha is getting looked at by a trainer. Bayley comes in saying she can't face Nia until her knee is completely healed, but Sasha is determined.

PROMO (Backstage): KO and Jericho are backstage angry that the match is still on. Jericho tries to calm him by saying no matter what happens they are still United States Champion no matter what. KO says that if they're going to keep the belt they will have to do it together. Jericho says its a singles match, and he wasn't out there when Zayn beat him. Owens jumps saying that he needs him to have his back, and Jericho says of course he does.

*Commercial Break*

UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Kevin Owens (c) (w Chris Jericho) vs. Braun Strowman

Jericho, after an argument with Owens, joins the commentary team instead of going to ringside.

Before the match, Strowman attacks Jericho at the commentary table, and even puts him through the table while Owens watches from the ring. Jericho is taken to the back.

To no ones surprise, Reigns enters the fray and Superman punches Strowman.

RESULTS: Strowman wins via DQ.
THOUGHTS: Stupid. Going to be a triple threat at Roadblock. Owens vs. Reigns vs. Strowman.

An SUV pulls up, everyone thinking that its HHH, but it ends up being Brock Lesnar.

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (In-Ring): Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are here to surprise the Raw crowd. Heyman says that every great athlete has that one person that has their number. That one asterisk by there name.. That one "Yeah but...". That one for the Beast Incarnate is Goldberg. The "yeah but" tarnishes your accomplishments, and takes away from the legacy. And it needs to be taken out, it needs to be wiped away. Brock Lesnar officially challenges Goldberg one last time at WrestleMania. That may be one of Heymans best promos to date.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax

Before the ref called for it, the bell rang. I don't know if it was supposed to happen or not, but I don't think it was.

Nia goes back on the attack and then Bayley shows up to check on Sasha as Nia leaves.

RESULTS: I don't even have a single idea what just happened. Nia won though.
THOUGHTS: I don't care. Not one bit. Raws women division has 110% lost me.

*Commercial Break*

Bayley and the trainer help Sasha Banks back to the trainers room.

TORNADO TAG TEAM MATCH: Enzo & Cass vs. Rusev (w Lana) & Jinder Mahal

In a tornado tag match, all four men are in the ring at the same time. No tags.

RESULTS: Enzo & Cass win via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Kinda cool seeing a tornado tag match on tv. Had to be the first in forever. But thats about the only cool thing about it.

A limo arrives outside the arena, and HHH steps out.

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (In-Ring): HHH and Seth are set to have a showdown. HHH is out first, the first time he has been on Raw since he pedigreed Seth and gave the new Universal Championship to Kevin Owens. HHH starts with how he built Seth Rollins. Giving him the NXT Championship, making him the leader of The Shield, giving him a WWE Championship. But then, Seth collapsed under his knee and he cried and handed the WWE Championship back he handed back everything Hunter handed to him on a silver platter. Then he came back expecting everyone to welcome him back with open arms, he became a failure. A failure that has been blamed on HHH, but he will not deliver an apology. He wants an apology from Seth Rollins as he handed him the world and got spat on. He has tried to put his past behind him. He tries to tie his tie, go to the office, and build something more. But then Seth comes to NXT, and that awoke something more. He is done trying to hide it. The Game.. Is back. He tells Seth he doesn't have to worry about coming to his house because he is in the ring and ready. Seth  makes a beeline for the ring, but on his way there Samoa Joe stops him!!! Joe attacks Rollins right in front of the ring! Joe holds him up so HHH can look at him, and Hunter heads to the back. Joe and Rollins are in the ring, and Joe is destroying him. Joe stands tall tonight as Raw ends on a great note.
