Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw.
The greeting of Renee Young to the announce team is interrupted by the entrance of Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre as well as Braun to finish off the three way mash up.
They are joined by a phalanx of the heels on Raw to surround the ring.
Dolph says we told you so. There is only one way to describe what happened to the Shield last week.
Braun says they beat them down. And like McIntyre said last week, they feast on their bloody carcasses.
Drew says don’t just take their word for it, take a look at it.
Braun says the only reason Roman Reigns still has the Universal Championship around his waist is because he is a coward and cannot handle business on his own. Braun tells Roman he has his hounds of justice, he has his dogs of war. The Shield has been running rampant around here for too long. Last week, they found out that their strength in numbers failed against his pack.
Dolph says everyone around the ring made a difficult choice and stood up to the Shield and their bullying for what was right. You stood up for yourselves.
Drew asks if you can feel that. The balance of power has shifted. Now they are in control and are running wild. Tonight, they will continue the carnage. They will set an example for you when they destroy the B Team in their tag title rematch. Braun says that will be nothing when he gets his hands on Roman this Sunday when they are locked inside HELL IN A CELL.
The music for the Shield plays and they make their way through the crowd.
The Shield take care of Braun’s new friends even though they are outnumbered by a factor of five or six. Dean Ambrose gives Roman and Seth axe handles and he takes one as they go after everyone but Dolph, Drew, and Braun.
We see footage from earlier today when the Bellas saw their locker room vandalized.

We are back and Triple H makes his way to the ring.
Hunter says on the night after SummerSlam, he said that the era was back and that through mutual respect he would face the Undertaker again in Melbourne. The legends came out and gave their thoughts on the match. Then there were polls about who would win the match and most people picked the Undertaker. Hunter says that is to be expected. He is the Undertaker. Hunter says at this level, those predictions and opinions don’t get to you, or they shouldn’t. That was until Shawn Michaels gave his opinion. It bothered one man so much.
The Undertaker. It is almost laughable that the Undertaker was bothered by Shawn Michaels’ opinion. Hunter says he does not get it. Hunter says the Undertaker was so rattled that he had to make an appearance in the ring. He accused Shawn of being bitter and made threats. Hunter says he watched it back and Hunter says it made him mad. It seemed like the Undertaker lost respect for Shawn and him. Hunter says it wasn’t the case. He hadn’t lost respect for Hunter or Shawn, he lost respect for himself. That was Taker’s last epic moment of greatness and Taker blames them for their demise.
Hunter says he has to look no further than the fact that Taker is not here tonight. If you go back to those matches with the Undertaker at Wrestlemania, he was never quite the same. Things went downhill. The aura would go away. The streak would go away. The mystique would go away. All that is left is a reputation.
Hunter says Taker said one thing that was true. It is now personal. Hunter says that the last bit of respect he has for the Undertaker, he will put him down.
We take a look at what happened when The Shield confronted Braun and his friends.The ‘police officers’ are still outside the building to see if The Shield return to the arena.
