“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.

A video kicks off the show that shows still photos of one of the most consequential WrestleMania main events of all time: Roman Reigns defeated The Undertaker in what appears to be the final match of his career. At the conclusion of the match, The Undertaker removed his jacket, hat, and gloves and left them in the center of the ring.

We go live into the arena to hear a loud “Undertaker” chant. It goes on for quite a while in the Amway Center in what is an incredible moment. The camera shoots all over the arena. Every person is on their feet chanting for The Undertaker and clapping in respect. It doesn’t let up. Some fans try to get a “Roman Sucks” chant in the middle of it, and it does pick up. This is going on for over three minutes.

Roman Reigns addresses retiring The Undertaker

Roman Reigns’ music hits, and he makes his way to the ring to MASSIVE boos from the crowd in Orlando. The crowd loudly boos him while he makes a slow walk to the ring. Michael Cole says there is speculation that it was The Undertaker’s last match and thanks him. A loud “DELETE” chant fires up. Reigns slowly walks around the ring. A vulgar “F–k you, Roman” chant picks up. Reigns seems to have a smirk on his face, and the “DELETE” chant fires up again. The boos them come hard and heavy on him. They then start chanting, “You suck” toward him. Reigns seems to be enjoying himself. Right when it seems to be dying down, they chant, “A–hole” toward him. Reigns puts the microphone close to his mouth, and they loudly boo him. They chant, “Roman Sucks” to the rhythm of “New Day Rocks.” Then they go to “DELETE” chants. Reigns puts the microphone to his mouth again, and they loudly boo him. They then go to a “SHUT THE F–K UP” chant. Reigns smiles as he puts the microphone to his mouth again and gets viciously booed. A “Go away” chant then picks up.

Finally Reigns puts the microphone up to his mouth, looks directly into the camera, and simply says, “This is my yard now” before dropping the microphone and walking off.

The commentators talk about what Reigns just said before saying the crowd will boo people they normally cheer in the name of “good fun.” Coming up next, The Hardy Boyz will defend their newly won WWE RAW Tag Team Championships against Anderson and Gallows.

Anderson and Gallows make their way to the ring.

Still photos are shown from the WrestleMania Kickoff Show that saw Neville retain the WWE Cruiserweight Championship over Austin Aries.

Neville is standing in the middle of the ring and tells the crowd to look at that. He did everything he said he was going to do, whereas Austin Aries did a lot of talking. Aries is a better talker than a fighter. The crowd may not like his method or respect his tactics, but they cannot deny his results. Neville holds the title up. Neville says tomorrow on 205 Live, they’re going to have a proper celebration. As for tonight, he couldn’t refuse the opportunity to prove them all wrong and remind the crowd of what he’s become.

-Commercial Break-

More still photos are shown of WrestleMania 33. They also show highlights of all the mainstream media coverage they got.

Vince McMahon addresses the crowd

Vince McMahon makes his way to the ring doing his trademark strut to a loud pop. The crowd loudly sings his theme song, which looks like it pleases McMahon. The crowd chants at him, “Roman sucks!” McMahon says he’d like to say something to the entire WWE Universe. McMahon says he doesn’t say these words often, but he thanks the crowd. McMahon thanks them for being the most passionate fans in the world and making WrestleMania the “Ultimate Thrill Ride.”

This big wheel keeps on turning. He’s conferred with the representatives of RAW and Smackdown. They’re going to have a superstar shakeup next week. It’s time to shake things up. Something shook everyone last night. It broke his heart. Incidents like this don’t often occur. We see footage of Seth Rollins knocking Triple H into Stephanie McMahon to send her through a table at ringside last night at WrestleMania. McMahon says his daughter will unfortunately be out of action for some time. The crowd loudly cheers that and starts up a “YES” chant. McMahon says she was almost broken in half, but they’re happy about that. McMahon says they’re passionate, but they’re being a little insensitive. A “DELETE” chant fires up. McMahon says they’re being cruel and bloodthirsty, but they’re taking it as a compliment. McMahon says the show must go on. Since the commissioner is out of action and there is no GM, it’s time to name a new General Manager. This man was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Teddy Long’s music hits, and the 2017 Hall of Fame inductee comes out to the stage dancing. McMahon angrily tells the truck to stop his music and demands he stop dancing. McMahon says it isn’t him. Long is confused. Long says, “My bad – Holla, holla, holla!” McMahon then announces the new General Manager of RAW, but no one comes out. Finally McMahon says, “Ladies and gentlemen, your new General Manager of RAW – Kurt Angle!”

The crowd loudly pops as Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring smiling. The crowd loudly chants, “You Suck” along with his music. McMahon hands him the microphone and leaves the ring. A loud, “Welcome back” chant fires up. Angle says it’s great to be back on Monday Night RAW. Angle finishes by saying, “Oh it’s true… it’s DAMN true!”

We’ll hear from Brock Lesnar later tonight. The commentators thank the city of Orlando for their hospitality toward WWE, as well as the fans that traveled from all over the world.

Still photos are shown of Kevin Owens defeating Chris Jericho to become the new WWE United States Champion. Later tonight, we’ll see Jericho team with Seth Rollins to face Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens.
