The intro rolls and we are all ready for Monday Night Raw!!!
Seth Rollins comes out to the ring and he has a huge smile on his face. He immediately gabs a mic.
Seth: Ladies and gentleman, last night I did the unthinkable. Despite facing Randy Orton in a grueling title match, I was able to bounce back and fight in the Royal Rumble, which I won. I defeated the likes of The Rock, John Cena, Sheamus, Wade Barrett, Kane and even The Undertaker. And now I have a guaranteed title shot at WrestleMania! The o—
"I hear voices in my head!" Orton comes out with a microphone.
Randy: Wait just a minute Seth. Let me give you a recap last night. After I defeated you with an RKO, you won the Royal Rumble by default. You entered at number 30 and nobody was in the ring. It is painfully obvious that your win was nothing more than a cheap fluke. I dare you to face me at WrestleMania, although I'd rather face a real competitor.
Seth: You might want to watch what you say, because I won't wait until WrestleMania to beat your ass. I might as well get a head start and leave you lying where you stand.
The two men have an epic stare down, before Rollins slaps Orton in the face.
Randy goes psychotic and begins pummeling Seth. Orton gets up and prepares for an RKO. However, Rollins rolls out of the ring.
Seth: You will get your shot at me Randy, but not here and not now. That world title should be mine, and it will be mine!

Promo No. 1: Master Lock Challenge
Chris Masters comes down the ring with a microphone in his hand.
Chris: Whoever is behind these cryptic emails is obviously a coward. It is time you stopped hiding behind a laptop and faced me man-to-man. You have messed with the wrong man and for that you will pay! But that is not why I am out here. I am out here to prove my dominance in a Master Lock Challenge.
Alex Riley comes out and he is pumped. He gets in the chair and prepares for the challenge.
Masters quickly locks in his move and viciously applies pressure on the neck. Riley is swinging back and forth and seemingly has no hope. He eventually passes out and Chris tosses him to the mat.

Jerry: Excuse me ladies and gentlemen, I have received an email from the Anonymous General Manager.
Raw GM: Congratulations Bo and Husky. You two men are one of the key teams that have helped to rebuild a once floundering tag team division. However one thing is missing, and that is the World Tag Team Championship.

Wade: At the Royal Rumble, I had thought Sheamus was doing the right thing by realigning with me. I thought he had realized that in the Empire Alliance, he could achieve things he had never even imagined. However, his pride and arrogance got in the way, and now he will pay the price for it.
William: Sheamus, at the Royal Rumble, you sealed your fate. Together, we will make sure that you don't even make it to WrestleMania. Your career ended the second you betrayed us. However, I have come out here for another reason.
