On the final Raw before WrestleMania 36, barbs were traded and blows were dealt, with No.1 Contender for Raw Women’s title Shayna Baszler taking out Becky Lynch in a ruthless assault, and The Undertaker issuing a warning to AJ Styles in a manner reminiscent of The Big Evil. Paul Heyman once again talked up Brock Lesnar, pointing out no matter how special Drew McIntyre is, his efforts won’t be enough to get him over The Beast Incarnate.

Heyman was no shortage of praises for perhaps Lesnar’s biggest adversary, but reminder McIntyre the lists of names the Beast has conquered. From The Rock to John Cena, all special, like McIntyre, but in the end, they all were restricted to just names Lesnar left behind in his path and at WrestleMania, a new name will be added to that list, of Drew McIntyre.

However, the biggest takeaway from Raw was the show’s opening segment, where The Undertaker addressed Styles, reminding The Phenomenal One he will pay for the disrespect he’s caused him and his wife. But here’s the catch. Taker did not have his trademark hat or jacket on, nor did he speak in a deep/scary voice. It was pretty much Mark Calaway doing the talking, who said that if Styles were to try The Deadman, he will make him famous – hinting that it may be the Big Evil version of The Undertaker showing up at WrestleMania.

How does that old saying go? “Be Careful What You Wish For, It May Just Come True.” Styles wanted The Undertaker of old; ask and you shall receive.
A week after Lynch attacked Baszler from behind, The Queen of Spades returned the favour, taking a wild swing of the chair on The Man’s back as she was basking in the glory of her last year’s WrestleMania feat. After locking Lynch in the Kirifuda Clutch that nearly passed The Raw Women’s Champion out, the No. 1 contender delivered a final statement by drilling Lynch through the commentary table. It is clear that Becky does not fear Baszler, but the former MMA athlete has proven just the reason behind reaching the top bracket of women’ wrestlers in the WWE.
Edge had one last stern warning for his WrestleMania opponent Randy Orton, whom he called a “Junkie” himself. Edge explained how the fact that Orton was handpicked to be part of Evolution of being a third-generation superstar are The Viper’s definition of grit, while for the Rate-R Superstar it’s always about pursuing the same passion he had as a six-year-old. Edge claimed he and Orton bring out the best in each other, but this time around, the Hall of Famer will push Orton deep into a hole, from where there is no scope of coming back out.
Kevin Owens sent a loud and clear message to Seth Rollins when he and the Raw tag team champions The Street Profits picked up a win over the Monday Night Messiah and the team of Angel Garza & Austin Theory. Owens landed the stunner on Garza to pick up the win, but Rollins cashed in to hit KO with the stomp immediately after the bell. Owens, however, got the literal last word with an impassioned post-match speech: “Your past doesn’t matter. My past doesn’t matter,” and that nothing will count come WrestleMania.
