WWE RAW Results - March 11, 2019

We are live from the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, PA, as The Shield make their way to the ring through the crowd, but will it be for the final time?

Roman says over the past few months, he has come to realize that life is short and tomorrow is not guaranteed. If last night was the final time, he has no regrets. He has no regrets because he was doing what he loves with people he loves. Last week, he asked them for a favor and they did not let him down and Roman says he is grateful for that. We are on the Road to Wrestlemania and if there are three men who need to handle their business it is them. Roman says he hasn't had a singles match on Raw in over five months so he figured he could fix that tonight. Ambrose has business too. He does not know what it is and neither does Dean. The man who has the real business is Seth. Roman asks how long have you been chasing that dream. Roman says he is not here to speak for Seth but he will slay the beast. He will take the Universal Championship and the whole world will chant 'burn it down'.

Roman and Dean leave while Seth remains in the ring.

Seth looks at the Wrestlemania sign and says last night at Fastlane, the Shield burned it down. Paul Heyman immediatly interrupts and makes his way onto the stage.

Paul introduces himself and he reminds us that he is the advocate for Brock Lesnar, the conqueror of Seth Rollins in the main event of Wrestlemania. Seth says Brock's name as well. He says the Brock Lesnar that dominates his opponents. He dominated the Big Show, ran through Samoa Joe, took Braun Strowman to Suplex City, and destroyed Bill Goldberg. Paul appreciates Seth doing his lines.

Seth says the Brock Lesnar who had a real tough time getting past Daniel Bryan. The Brock Lensar that got pushes to his limit by AJ Styles. The Brock Lesnar that was this close to being beaten by Finn Balor. That Brock Lesnar?

Paul says yeah, touche. Seth says your client has a bit of a problem with guys who are his size, his stature, speed, agility, and style. With all respect to AJ, FInn, and Daniel, there is only one man uniquely suited to beat your client at Wrestlemania and it is Seth Freakin' Rollins. Three weeks, that is all you've got. Seth says he is taking the title off Paul's beast and bringing it back to Raw every single week.

Paul says that Seth will not slay the beast. Paul says Seth is not telling the full story. Brock did not have time to prepare for all of the people you mentioned. Paul says it was supposed to be Brock versus Jinder Mahal, but it wasn't Jinder Mahal, it was AJ Styles. It was supposed to be Brock Lesnar versus AJ Styles, but it was Daniel Bryan. It was supposed to be Brock Lesnar versus Braun Strowman, but it was Finn Balor. Paul says that Brock only had five days to prepare for those men.

We have a video package for Brock Lesnar.

Paul says ever since you won the Royal Rumble, Brock Lesnar has had these sadistic fantasies in his mind of what he is going to do to Seth since he has prepared for you in the main event of Wrestlemania. You think you know Brock Lesnar? Seth Rollins, you don't know Brock Lesnar. Shelton Benjamin attacks Seth Rollins from behind with two German suplexes, then a third German suplex.
