The music for WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns plays as he makes his way to the ring.

Roman says he feels like he owes everyone an apology. For months he spoke as Roman Reigns and he said a lot of things and that he would be here every week and be a fighting champion. Roman says that is all lies. Roman says the reality is that his name is Joe and he has been living with leukemia for 11 years. Roman says that it is back. Because it is back, he cannot fulfill his role and be a fighting champion. Roman says that he will have to relinquish the Universal Championship.

Roman says he will take every prayer coming his way but he is not looking for sympathy. He has faith. Roman says he was 22 when he was diagnosed and he was able to put it in remission. Roman says he did not have the money at the time and he had a baby on the way. Roman says that WWE gave him a chance. When he finally made it to the main roster, he was put in front of all of you and you have made his dreams come true. Roman says it did not matter if you cheered him or booed him, you reacted to him. That is the most important thing and he thanks everyone.

Roman says you know the deal. Life is not fair and it is not all peaches and cream. Life can throw you a curve ball. He is going to go home and focus on his health and his family. Roman says this is not a retirement speech. After he is done whooping leukemia’s ass, he is coming back home and when he does, it will not be about winning titles and being on top. He will have a purpose. He wants to show the whole world, his family, his friends, his children, and his wife that he will swing for the fences every time. Roman says he will beat this and he will be back. You will see him very soon.

Roman puts the Universal title belt down in the center of the ring.

As Roman goes up the ramp to the stage, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins come out and they hug. Then they do the Shield fist pose.

Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

We see photos of the finish of the steel cage match that ended in controversy because while Brock hit the floor first, Roman’s feet hit the floor first.

We see the tweet from the referee who admitted that he made a mistake.

Roman says he will not make any excuses because there is no need to. You have seen the footage and the tweet from the referee so you are looking at the real Universal Champion. Roman says he should be the Universal Champion but he is not . . . yet. A lot of you doubted him and a lot of you lost faith in him but Roman says he is a man of his word and he kept his word.

The other Quebec citizen on the Raw roster, Kevin Owens, makes his way to the stage to a huge ovation.

Kevin addresses the crowd in French as well. Kevin tells Sami, with all due respect, he knows that Sami can beat Roman Reigns. However, Kevin says tonight, the people want to see Roman Reigns versus Kevin Owens.

Kevin tells Roman the people are chanting yes because they like the idea. Jinder Mahal and Sami Zayn want a piece of Roman Reigns. Kevin suggests a coin flip but he doesn’t have a coin or something with three sides. How about a popularity contest. Kevin mentions all three options.

The show starts with a graphic in memory of Bruno Sammartino and the roster is on the stage for a ten bell salute and a video package.

Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar make their way to the ring.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Paul Heyman clears his throat before introducing himself and his client through the boos in St. Louis. Paul says he supposes you are bestowing you with your anger because you think he is going to come out here and gloat, don’t you? You think he is out here to say he told you so. You thought they were out here to say that just like Brock conquered the Undertaker’s undefeated streak, just like when Brock Lesnar took John Cena to Suplex City, just like every single time some wannabe tough guy who doesn’t understand when it comes to Brock Lesnar that this is real, just like not one member of that locker room stands any more of a chance than any of the wannabe tough guys in attendance tonight, just like he keeps telling you he does not make predictions, he presents spoilers he will not be gloating.

Paul says Brock Lesnar does not gloat. Brock Lesnar conquers. Paul Heyman gloats all night long. Paul gloats over the fact that Brock used non-PG era elbows to scar up Roman’s face. Paul gloats that Brock took Roman to Suplex City. Paul gloats that Brock hit multiple F5s on Roman to put Roman out to the trash heap. None of this means anything to Brock Lesnar. Brock Lesnar does not dwell on the past, even when the past is only two weeks ago at Wrestlemania. Brock looks forward to the future, especially when the future is this Friday in Saudi Arabia at the Greatest Royal Rumble. When Brock Lesnar, so crazed to be in a UFC, he will get on a private jet and fly across the world to travel to Saudi Arabia to be locked insideof a cage with Roman Reigns.

Paul asks if being in a cage was Roman’s idea? Paul says he is going to smarten everyone up. Brock pinned Roman and WWE had no choice so Roman signs a big, fat beautiful contract with a raise that Brock earned by beating Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania. WWE goes to Brock and says we need the Universal Title defended in Saudi Arabia. Brock said that Roman is breathing so he wants Roman in a fight for the title in a steel cage. You think this is to Roman’s advantage? The odds are more stacked against Roman on Friday. That is not a fact, it is a spoiler.

Brock is going to shred Roman Reigns, piece by piece and limb from limb. Brock will come back as Universal Champion while Roman comes back in many boxes as the victim of the . . .

Roman Reigns’ music interrupts and he makes his way to the stage and then he goes to ringside.

Roman enters the ring and he stares down Brock.

Roman says that Paul is right. He does not know how he is getting back, but he tells St. Louis that he is coming home with that title. You can believe that.

Roman drops the mic and his music plays.

We are back and Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

Roman looks around and he says he is here but Brock Lesnar isn’t. Once again, he is going to face Brock Lesnar. It is not going down like it was at Wrestlemania because they are going to be in a steel cage. He will leave Brock in the cage and he will return to Raw as the Full Time Universal Champion. Since tonight is the Superstar Shake Up . . .

Samoa Joe interrupts and he makes his way to the stage.

Joe tells Roman you come out here and you are so quick to brag that you show up for work. Joe says you don’t brag about getting the job done. The fact is you haven’t got the job done and you never will. You talk about this cage match and you are going to become a champion. You are not getting in the ring with a normal superstar. You are getting in there with a beast who has beaten you every time you stepped into the ring with him.

Joe says he almost feels sorry for Roman but he does not know his place around here. You won’t learn until someone puts you down for good. Joe says he comes bearing that sweet mercy. When Brock is done with you in the cage, Joe will put the Big Dog to sleep once and for all. Since you have some bass in your voice, Joe wants to remind Roman of what Brock has done to him and what Joe will do to him.

Roman says that is everything that Brock has done, so why don’t you come down here to see what your lazy fat ass can do.

Joe makes his way to the ring but Joe stops at the bottom of the ramp and decides to go back up the ramp. Joe stops at the top of the ramp and he throws his towel down and goes to the ring, but Joe says he will see Roman at Backlash on his time.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Paul Heyman makes his way to the ring and he has Brock’s title belt with him. Paul says he did not seek your irrelevant opinion or your affirmation. Paul says he is here to deliver a message on behalf of his client. He is here to set the record straight. He is here tonight and he gets to lay this title down in this ring because Brock Lesnar allows him to put his hands on that title. After Brock Lesnar successfully defends that Universal title on April 8th at Wrestlemania against Roman Reigns. If Brock chooses to defend that title at SummerSlam, he will come back on television and he will lay this title down next to the UFC title as well.

Last week, Roman Reigns had a lot to say about Brock Lesnar. He criticized Brock’s schedule. Paul asks Roman what was the biggest victory of your career? It was when you beat the Undertaker last year at Wrestlemania. He says that Roman is one of two to beat Undertaker at Wrestlemania. Did anyone complain about the victory meaning something since Undertaker only wrestled once that year. They did not because that is bulls***. The Undertaker is the Undertaker 365 days a year, so props to you. Brock Lesnar is Brock Lesnar 365 days a year. You are not beating Brock Lesnar.

If Roman Reigns does not like what Paul is saying, Roman Reigns can do something about it next week when he brings out Brock Lesnar. Afa Wrestlemania, you can Sika new one because this one belongs to Brock Lesnar.

Last week, Roman Reigns called Brock Lesnar a bitch. Paul says the title belt is Brock’s bitch. She belongs to Brock Lesnar. Roman Reigns, you are eyeballing Brock’s bitch and you can’t have her. Roman Reigns, you want to be Universal Champion because your family’s bloodline runs through this business. When you are Universal Champion, this is your bloodline and this bloodline is yours to keep. You will have to take the title out of Brock’s hot, competitive fingers. Brock has always wanted to be numbers one. That is not a belt, that is not a strap, that is not a prop. This is proof that you are number one. Proof that you are better than everyone else. It is proof to show your children that you are the top of the card. You are the number one on the face of this planet and everywhere in the universe. It is not how bad you want the title, it is how bad the title wants you.

Here is the sacrifice you have to make. On the Saturday night before Wrestlemania and you get a call that you have to go home because something bad happened to your father. You have to defend the title and then you cannot fly home on a red eye because you need to be on Raw. If you are not needed on Smackdown, then you can go home to be with your family. If you want to be Universal Champion, this title needs you more. You are that title and that title is everything you are.

Next week on Raw, his client will be here and you can say whatever you want to his face. You have learned that you don’t want to shoot on the mic with Paul Heyman and you don’t want to shoot in the ring with the current, reigning Undisputed Champion, Brock Lesnar.

Roman Reigns’ music plays and he shows up on the stage. He makes his way to the ring and he gets in Paul’s face.

Roman says this is what he is talking about. He said a lot of things last week. Some were harsh but they were true. He thought Brock would show up, but he sends Paul for his rebuttal. He says that Brock really is a bitch. Roman asks for Brock to show up. They aren’t asking for much. They are asking that their champion shows up for work. They don’t want Brock to just show up, they want him to want to be here.

Roman says if Brock is going to be in Detroit, Roman says he will be there too. He says that Brock can say whatever he wants to his face but he better not be dressed for a promo segment. He better be dressed for a fight.

We go to credits.

We are back and Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

Roman looks around and he sees the Wrestlemania sign. Roman says he is a man of his word and he said he would win the Elimination Chamber and he did. When he says he is going to Wrestlemania and he can beat Brock Lesnar, he is telling the truth. The truth is a funny word. He says he doesn’t know why he is covering for this guy. Roman says the truth is that Brock Lesnar is not here tonight. Up until about 30 minutes ago, he thought Brock was going to be here but he didn’t show. Nobody will say this back there, but Roman will say it. Brock is an entitled piece of crap who hides behind his contract.

We are six weeks from Wrestlemania and the Universal Champion is not here. Last night, we were in Las Vegas and Brock was there, but he was not at the Elimination Chamber. He was taking pictures with Dana White. Brock does not respect any of you and he does not respect anyone in the back. Roman says they go all over the world and bust their ass but Brock shows up only when the money is right or the city is right. It does not matter how big the town is, Roman says he will be there because he said he will be there.

Brock and Paul will come out and say they are businessmen, but Roman says he was born in this business. He says he was taught at any early age that there is a fine line between business and respect. Roman says he does not respect Brock Lesnar and he does not fear that bitch.

Roman says he is done speaking and he will go to the back to take his ass chewing like a man because he respects this place.

Most Superstars don’t survive their first trip to Suplex City. Roman Reigns just booked himself a return visit.

The Big Dog prevailed in the first-ever Seven-Man Elimination Chamber Match to punch his ticket to his first one-on-one showdown with Brock Lesnar since his ill-fated WWE Title Match at WrestleMania 31, though this time he’ll challenge for the Universal Championship at The Showcase of the Immortals. Reigns’ carried him past the cream of Raw’s crop. Each of the seven competitors in the historic Men’s Elimination Chamber Match had all the motivation in the world to carry them to WrestleMania, but The Big Dog wanted it just that much more.

The Miz, looking to bring the Intercontinental Championship to the main event of The Show of Shows, entered the Chamber as one of the first entrants due to a loss to John Cena. Despite the handicap, the Intercontinental Champion proved to be the canniest competitor of the bunch. From trying to Too-Sweet Finn Bálor into an alliance (not being one of “The Bbbbbbboys,” he was swiftly denied) to picking whatever bones he could, Miz seemed as though he would manage to outwit his way into The Show of Shows — until he was eliminated first by Braun Strowman via a Running Powerslam.

Elias, who won the right to enter the Chamber last, was buzzed in moments after Miz was tossed and quickly locked himself back into his pod, refusing to emerge until the field had seemingly taken itself out. Looking to drift his way to the biggest performance of his life, Elias sprinted in when his opponents were all depleted and blatantly tried to take advantage of whoever was most vulnerable. It seemed like he, too, might steal one — until he was eliminated second by Braun Strowman.

John Cena, the lion in winter whose uncertain path to WrestleMania had clouded his mind with a must-win mentality, made a point of seeking out Seth Rollins (more on him in a second) and threw himself headlong into the fray. However, he was never quite in the thick of it, and he was eliminated third by Strowman. (In a post-Chamber interview on Raw Talk, he hinted at a “plan” to get to The Show of Shows that involved him crossing some unspoken locker-room lines, though he did not elaborate.)

Bálor, fighting with all his heart to win back the title that he never lost, started the match with Miz and Rollins and ended up stepping directly to Strowman as the field began to thin. Unfortunately, the continuing presence of Reigns and Rollins kept forcing The Extraordinary Man to stop his onslaught short, and one particular digression — a Coup de Grâce to Reigns — left him open to the fourth elimination of the match, once again by Strowman.

Rollins, coming off a record-setting performance on Raw that made him the overwhelming sentimental favorite in the Chamber, truly backed up his desire to become “The Man” again, partially by displaying the ruthlessness that got him there in the first place. Rollins formed a tentative alliance with Reigns that he dissolved the second he got the chance, booting The Big Dog in the face and stepping to Strowman, once again, by himself, though he was the fifth man eliminated by Strowman, yet again by way of Running Powerslam.

As for Strowman, he was the unquestioned MVP of the match as far as eliminations were concerned. Every ousting besides his own was achieved by These Hands, and despite having suffered an array of finishing maneuvers from everybody else in the match, The Monster Among Men seemingly had Reigns right where he wanted him. The exhausted Big Dog ended up using Strowman’s own aggression against him, olé’ing The Gift of Destruction through one of the pods and administering a rapid combination of three Superman Punches and two titanic Spears to finally put down The Monster Among Men.

Unfortunately for Reigns, Braun didn’t stay down. The Big Dog couldn’t even enjoy his victory before Strowman roared back to life, flattening Reigns with a pair of Running Powerslams and a trip through the pod. The attack caused Reigns to be carried backstage, but he had recovered by the time Raw Talk came around to promise closure and redemption come WrestleMania. It’s far from an empty boast: Given Reigns’ skill and how close he came the first time, we know he has the ability to beat Brock Lesnar. The only question that remains is whether he will.
