Tony Nese & The Brian Kendrick defeated TJ Perkins & Akira Tozawa via pinfall. Before the match, the commentators announced a Fatal Fiveway on 205 Live tomorrow to determine Neville’s opponent at WrestleMania 33. The heels doubled up against Tozawa for a bit. He went for the tag to Perkins, but Kendrick yanked Perkins from the apron before he could. Later, Tozawa got the hot tag to Perkins who hit a top rope DDT on Nese for the near fall. Kendrick ran some interference from the corner, but Tozawa delivered a kick on him. Nese shoved Perkins into Tozawa and got the rollup pinfall for the win.
Backstage, Stephanie McMahon told Mick Foley he needs to fire one member off the Raw roster tonight. She recommended someone like Sami Zayn. Foley said he’d figure it out. Nia Jax walked in and said she can’t understand how Sasha is in the title match at WrestleMania after she put her on the shelf for a month. Foley started to talk, but Stephanie interrupted. She told Nia she’d get the spotlight tonight in a match against Raw champion Bayley.
Chris Jericho & Sami Zayn defeated Samoa Joe & Kevin Owens due to disqualification. Late in the match, Jericho was knocked to the outside. Zayn hit a dive over the ropes out onto the two heels, but seemed to tweak his knee. When he got back in the ring he went after Joe.

The distraction allowed Jinder to hit a running knee. Jinder slammed down Reigns for a two count. Reigns was able to battle back and hit a Superman Punch for the big win.
After the win, Reigns called out Undertaker on the mic to come to the ring and Raw went to commercial as he waited. After break, Reigns was still waiting for The Deadman. Instead, Shawn Michaels’ theme music hit and out came The Heartbreak Kid. Michaels got in the ring and waited out cheers and “H-B-K” chants. Reigns said it was good to see him and Detroit loves him, but he called out The Undertaker. Michaels told Reigns to watch out for the mind games Undertaker is already playing with him. He warned Reigns that come WrestleMania Taker will eat him alive. Reigns said that’s not how it will be and maybe Undertaker should think about how it’s going to be in the ring with him. Michaels said he’s been in Reigns’ shoes before and he’s on his side now.
Reigns reminded Michaels that Undertaker retired him and he’s the guy that’s going to retire him. Reigns left Michaels in the ring to ponder that as he dropped the mic and walked up the ramp to go backstage. Reigns stopped near the top of the ramp and looked back to nod at Michaels. Suddenly, Braun Strowman came down the ramp and blasted Reigns with a shot, causing him to roll down the ramp and off to the side area. Strowman stood on the ramp and yelled at Michaels “If I wanted to I’d come in there and do it to you too.” Referees rushed out to check on Reigns near the side barricade. He finally sat up over there holding his leg.
Backstage, Stephanie brought up how Mick needs to choose someone to fire from the roster. She said Mick needs to work on this stalling he does when it comes to making a decision for the show. She said he has one hour left to make the decision and if he doesn’t, then she might make one for him that he doesn’t like very much.
The commentators talked up former commentator Austin Aries making his statement to Neville in the ring last week. They showed replays of what went down on Raw and then Aries winning against Tony Nese on 205 Live. Next up, Aries takes on Davairi in singles competition on Raw.

Bayley asked “What haters” and Sasha said all the ones saying she doesn’t deserve the championship. Sasha told her to go out and focus on business then they can go to WrestleMania and find out who the better woman is.
Chris Jericho was interviewed backstage by Mike Rome as he was holding an ice bag on the back of his head. Jericho said he’s going to get his revenge at WrestleMania, but first he’s going to show people the “true Kevin Owens.” He said next week will be a special edition of “The Highlight Reel” featuring the real Kevin Owens. Jericho told him “Now hit the road Tom,” and he told him he was Mike Rome, Tom Phillips is on SmackDown. Rome said “I wasn’t insulting your intelligence,” and Jericho asked if he knows what happens when he doesn’t know his own name. Jericho whipped out a pen and The List and yelled “You Just made the list,” then said “Hit the road Tom Phillips!”
Bayley defeated Nia Jax via disqualification in a non-title match. Late in this one, Nia had control and kept on attacking Bayley in the corner. Nia hung Bayley up in the corner but the ref went over to get in Nia’s way. He yelled at her to back off. Nia left the ring and the ref helped untangle Bayley’s legs from the corner. Bayley fell to the mat and rolled towards the side apron. Nia went over to the side and yanked Bayley out then tossed her against the crowd barrier, leaving her laid out for the ref to check on.
Mick Foley was shown walking backstage on his way out to announce his big decision for who gets fired from Raw’s roster.
Cole announced that next week Roman Reigns takes on Braun Strowman on Raw after what happened tonight.
WWE Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon was in the ring to bring out General Manager Mick Foley to announce which Raw superstar would be fired tonight.
Stephanie asked Mick which superstar he is going to fire. He said he thought it over and decided on which name should be fired. He thanked Stephanie for giving him this because he thinks it will make Raw a better show and him a better GM and this a better show in the long run for everyone. He said after careful deliberation about this and consideration of their 18 year friendship he made this choice. He said months ago he asked Stephanie to tell him the truth over whether or not Triple H had interfered in things with Seth Rollins. He said he learned that she’s a really good liar and a really bad person. Stephanie got in his face and Mick said he will not be silenced.
He kept speaking but Triple H’s music hit and The Game walked out to the ring. HHH asked him if he has something to say to say it to his face. Foley said he would have but HHH is always hiding in the shadows. HHH said he’s lucky he doesn’t rip his leg off and beat him senseless with it. Foley asked if he does that or if he just has Samoa Joe do it. Triple H told Foley that he’s there because Stephanie seems to like him. He told Foley not to underestimate Stephanie as a businesswoman. HHH said Foley’s dangerously close to having to go back to dragging his butt around the globe and tell stories of who he used to be.
Foley said the Raw superstars respect and like him and unlike them he doesn’t have to pretend to like Triple H. HHH brought up Foley’s kids asking what they will think if Foley does this. He mentioned how Dewey works at the WWE Office and asked if Foley might want to give him a ride to unemployment. Triple H yelled at Foley to tuck his tail, get out of the ring, and head up the ramp. Foley put his mic down and turned to leave. HHH headed over to the corner as Stephanie turned and addressed the crowd, calling this a lesson for everyone to see.
As Stephanie kept speaking, HHH turned to see Foley hadn’t left yet. He turned and yelled over at Mick he told him to leave then went at him. Foley turned and had Socko on his fist and shoved it into Triple H’s mouth. He kept at it and HHH fell to the corner choking from it. Stephanie saw and went over to hit a low blow on Foley, breaking it up. From there, Steph told HHH to go over and attack Foley more. HHH went over but as he did, Seth Rollins’ music hit.
Rollins walked out with a crutch and his knee in a brace as he hobbled down the ramp to stare at Triple H in the ring. Triple H smirked and taunted Rollins to get in. After a stare off, Rollins held his crutch in the air and dropped it and then took off his jacket. Rollins rushed in the ring and got the best of HHH, beating him up and then kicking him out of the ring. HHH recovered at ringside. Rollins taunted him to come back in. Triple H looked over and saw the crutch lying there so he picked it up and rushed back in with the weapon. Rollins fought him off briefly, but HHH managed to avoid a move and jab the crutch into Rollin’s gut. He smashed it against Rollins’ bad knee and then put a submission hold on him on the mat for more damage.
Referees rushed in to get Triple H to break the hold. Rollins got away and refs helped him stand up but HHH had the crutch again and smacked Rollins in the leg. Raw ended with Rollins on the mat clutching his knee and writhing in pain.
