For the first time since Survivor Series, The Rock returned to Monday nights to deliver one final message to his WrestleMania opponent, Rusev and simply let it know that it will take a lot to beat him when it matters and simply warned The Rebellious Brute that he better bring his best. Not too long after that Rock was met with a steel chair to the skull by the former WWE Champion, simply letting it known that he is ready for "The Great One"
Charlotte Flair defeats Shayna Baszler via disqualification
Just days before they are on opposite sides of the ring during the Eight Woman Elimination Tag Team Match at WrestleMania, Shayna Baszler and Charlotte Flair clashed with heavy momentum and pride on the line but just when it looked like The Queen was on the verge of putting Baszler away, Shayna's protege' Dakota Kai interrupted the match and went on the attack until Sonya Deville (who was originally scheduled to face Flair) joined in and all hell broke loose until Becky and Tessa tried to make the save but they were met with a vengeful Ronda Rousey just seven days after she was assaulted by Blanchard with a steel chair and the Baddest Woman on the Planet came with receipts and fed Blanchard to Baszler who locked her in the Clutch while Kai hit the helluva kick on Flair with he head leaned up on the ring post. Camp Spades left with the last laugh, what will happen on WrestleMania: Sunday?
Aleister Black with a fiery message to Triple H six days before they clash in the "I Quit" match
Cedric Alexander defeats Xavier Woods (w/Kofi Kingston) to retain the World Television Championship
Both Cedric Alexander and Xavier Woods were out to prove something and that was the fact that the World Television Title is something you want to fight over and they proved it. Woods pulled out all the stops including connecting with the "Lost in the Woods" but that wasn't enough to keep "Prime Time Alexander" down who came out the gate with Planchas, Brain-busters and inevitably the "Overtime" frog-splash to pick up the win and retain the title.
Bobby Lashley and Intercontinental Champion Cesaro came to blows backstage
A furious Lashley stormed into the office of Commissioner Paul Heyman demanding to know why he made the matches for the "Road to WrestleMania" special that could see his scheduled IC Title match converted into a 4-Way and Heyman simply told him "to do something about it" which Lashley set out to do and then he came back to face with a vengeful Cesaro who brawled a bit with the Chief Hurt Officer before being laid out with a spear. Cesaro passed some physically exams with his ribs heavily damaged but he will still compete at WrestleMania but will the question is, will it remain a one-on-one affair?
WWE World Heavyweight Champion Apollo Crews (w/MVP) defeats Oney Lorcan in a non-title match
Just six days before he defends his WWE World Championship in the main event of Night 2 of WrestleMania: Atlanta, "The Diamond" Apollo Crews battled MVP's handpicked opponent in a non-title match - Oney Lorcan. In what he thought would be a quick onslaught, Lorcan brought the fight to the front-man of the BDC with take downs and repeated slaps but that might have pissed off the champ when he connected with the "Ball Game" Suplex Driver to pick up the win in dominant fashion before sending one final impromptu message to Pete Dunne who is claiming that nothing will stop him from winning the title - Crews simply said: "I will...see ya Sunday"
Aleister Black (w/Zelina Vega) defeats Kevin Owens; Triple H returns to confront Black
Competing in the ring for the first time since the brutal Street Fight a couple of weeks ago, Aleister Black went one-on-one with Kevin Owens - who has been in quite the slump since Survivor Series. Both men brought it as usual with Owens nearly handing Black his first loss ever in WWE with the Stunner but Black fought back and connected with a V-Trigger to the side of the head before connecting with the lethal Black Mass kick to pick up the win.
Following the match, Black was still in fighting mode and laid down quite the beating on the former United States Champion before setting up for the Pedigree but then the music of Triple H glared across the PA system and out came - Shane McMahon - who has been quite the thorn in the side of Black since the Royal Rumble. But that was a diversion as "The Game" was behind Black who took the fight to the man whom he faces in just six days at WrestleMania but before Triple H could hit the pedigree, Black escaped and took the higher ground root before both men shouted at each other. Everything is on the line under "I Quit" rules!
