SETH ROLLINS IN-RING PROMO
Here we go, it’s time to start the Road To WrestleMania 35! We are kicking things off with last nights WWE Men’s Royal Rumble winner, Seth Rollins! He says that last week he said the reason he would outlast everyone was because of his heat, determination, and love. Tonight, he gets to say that Seth Rollins is going to the main event of WrestleMania.
Rollins says he promised himself if he won the Rumble he wasn’t going to do it, but it is a once in a lifetime shot, so he has to point at the sign. A clearly emotional Rollins says all he has ever wanted to do is point at that sign and main event WrestleMania, and the crazy thing is, this is just the beginning of the journey, as he now has a choice to make.
Rollins says one path will take him over to SmackDown, where he can challenge someone who has been a friend of his for a long time. His other path takes him to suplex city. However, before we get an answer from Rollins, Triple H makes his way to the ring.
A huge “NXT” chant breaks out and Triple H says he is glad that Rollins has got to live his dream and pointed at the sign. He said this is why he challenged him a few weeks ago because he has known that dream because it was his dream and says that Rollins stepped up to that challenge and he is proud of that.
Triple H says Becky Lynch will make her decision tomorrow night, but Rollins needs to make his tonight and he wants to know tonight and says he will give Seth until tonight and then Daniel Bryan and Brock Lesnar will both be here, and he needs to tell him whose ass he is going to kick at WrestleMania.
Rollins says it will be one of the hardest decisions he has ever made, but he is then interrupted by a familiar face… Dean Ambrose. He states that this act makes him feel sick, stating that Triple H didn’t use to believe in Rollins, but he always believed in him and was always by his side.
Hunter then questions if he is really going down the brother route, but Ambrose states this doesn’t concern Hunter, to which he responds that everything in this ring concerns him. Ambrose then says that Rollins is a kiss ass, and Ambrose says he hopes he will beat whoever he picks, but the guy he has never been able to beat is him and Dean asks Hunter to make the match official right now.
Ambrose questions if Triple H has to ask permission from his father in law first, to which Triple H replies by simply asking for a referee, and just like that we have our opening match!
SETH ROLLINS vs DEAN AMBROSE
Seth Rollins starts the match hot, taking the fight directly to his former Shield-brother, brawling outside of the ring with the Royal Rumble winner in firm control so far. However, that early control doesn’t last for long as Ambrose begins driving Rollins into the ring post on the outside.
Back in the ring and Rollins looks for the slingblade but Ambrose is smart to reverse the move and looks for a quick victory, only to gain a two-count. Back from commercial and Rollins is looking to pick up the pace of the match, hitting several chops that sends Ambrose to the outside and he follows that up with a suicide dive which he follows up with another!
Back in the ring and Rollins looks for a Splash but there’s nobody home and Ambrose aims to quickly make the most of that with a roll-up, only for Seth to kick out just in time. Rollins then hits the Stomp and just like that, this one is over with Seth Rollins picking up a major win to start tonight’s Raw.
Winner: Seth Rollins
