Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw.
We are in Portland, Oregon and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Renee Young.
Stephanie McMahon is in the ring and she . . .is interrupted by Becky Lynch’s music and The Man makes her way to the ring.
Stephanie says that before she was rudely interrupted by Becky during her own introduction, Stephanie finishes. We take a look back to last week’s Raw when Becky Lynch challenged Ronda Rousey at Wrestlemania.
Stephanie says she has never seen anyone stand toe to toe with an angry Ronda Rousey and smile.
Becky asks why wouldn’t she be smiling? She has a lot of reasons to be smiling. She won the Royal Rumble, is going to Wrestlemania, and will slap the head off Ronda Rousey.
Stephanie says there is no one who wants to see Becky do that to Ronda more than her. She also points out how Becky was not moving so fast to the ring and asks how is Becky doing.
We take a look back to the end of the Royal Rumble match.
Stephanie says that Becky is all heart and she points out that Becky has not sought medical attention.
Becky says she does not want to deal with doctors.
Stephanie reminds Becky of what happened when Nia Jax broke her nose. Stephanie says Becky is all heart. She says that she cannot let Becky compete if she is not medically cleared to wrestle.
Becky says she sees what is happening. You are the glitch in your plan but here she is. Becky is not moving for anyone. She has struggled to get here but what does Stephanie know about struggle. You have never had to struggle for anything in your life. You are another daddy’s girl who never had to fight trying to stop her from fighting for everything. Becky says she rose up and went every step of the way to get her match at Wrestlemania. No doctor will take it from her.
Stephanie says you earned it but it is a liability if she is not cleared to wrestle. You can be cleared to wrestle, unless your knee is worse than it is. This is one of the biggest matches in WWE history. Stephanie says she is pleading with Becky to see the doctors. It is not a plot, it is for your health.
Becky says you are not taking her moment from her.
Stephanie threatens to suspend Becky until she sees a doctor.
Becky says she won’t do it.
Stephanie says she doesn’t want to do it. She says until Becky sees a doctor, you are suspended.
Becky punches Stephanie and tries to put Stephanie in DisArmHer. Officials and referees come into the ring and Becky takes care of them. Becky has to be pulled away from Stephanie.
Becky has trouble standing up and gingerly walks up the ramp.
We go to commercial.
We are back and Becky is being escorted out of the building and she sees Ronda Rousey walking.
We have a stare down and Ronda tells Becky that you test the limits of her professionalism when she stands in front of Becky and does not implode her face. She is trying to sell their match. You are ruining their match by what she did to Stephanie.

Ruby Riott stays at ringside and she may want a piece of Ronda. Ronda drops the title belt in front or Ruby. Ruby goes back to the floor and heads to the back with Sarah and Liv.
Ruby is asked why did she run away from Ronda Rousey. Ruby says she did not run away and she will beat Ronda Rousey for the Women’s Championship. Liv and Sarah are hurt and they need her so Ronda has to wait. They have a bond and will do anything for anyone no matter the cost. That is what friends do and something an opportunist like Ronda does not know.
Tucker says they are not the stereotypical lunk meatheads. They are here to drop all of the tag teams on Raw and Smackdown.
We see Bayley and Sasha Banks in the back talking about their tag match later. They are asked about losing to Ronda and if the failure had any effect on their match against Alicia Fox and Nikki Cross. Bayley says she pushed Ronda to her limit. Individually, they are great, but as a team they are the best. Sasha says they willed the tag titles into existence. They will make history.
