WWE RAW Results (2/24) - Winnipeg, Canada
Tonight's WWE RAW opens up with a video package on Randy Orton's recent happenings.



- We're live from the Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada as the pyro goes off. Tom Phillips welcomes us to the go-home show for WWE Super ShowDown. He's joined by Byron Saxton and WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler.

- We go right to the ring and out comes Randy Orton. The announcers hype tonight's show as Orton marches to the ring.

Randy says he needs to apologize. He says he is not the most sentimental of men but his emotions have become unbalanced. He says when he arrived at the venue, he was told it was fifteen years since Raw had been in Winnipeg. Randy says he would have been 24 years old. Randy says on that Raw, he was the Intercontinental Champion and he was punched in the face by a certain man. A man who would save him from himself and his self destructive tendencies. A man who he would come to love like a brother. His name is Adam and all of you call him Edge.

Randy says if Edge was here tonight... Edge cannot be here tonight because of what he did to Edge a month ago. What he did to Edge, he does not expect you to understand. From the bottom of his heart, you will never know why he did what he did. Orton says what he did, he is very sorry for. He is truly sorry from the bottom of his heart.

Kevin Owens' music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Kevin tells Randy for the past few months he has been dealing with a lot of delusional people. He mentions AOP, Murphy and the Monday Night Moron Seth Rollins. Tonight, he will put that issue aside because Kevin says he has an issue with Randy. Since dealing with delusional people is his speciality, he heard Randy apologize for what he did to Edge. Kevin says he does not think Randy means it. Drop the act and tell us why you did it. Matt Hardy came out to find out why and he got beaten down twice. Kevin says now he is here to ask why.

Randy tells Kevin he doesn't want to go down that road.

Kevin says he does want to go down that road. Kevin says he has been a WWE fan his whole life and he was a fan of Edge. Kevin says he saw Edge's retirement while Kevin was wrestling on the independent circuit. Kevin says it sucked because so many wanted to be in the ring with Edge. Then Edge came back at the Royal Rumble, Kevin says he was watching as a fan and he thought maybe he could step in the ring with Edge. Then you took it all away the next night. Kevin asks Randy why did he do it.

Randy asks Kevin if he thinks he knows him. Your hero Edge thought he knew him too. Kevin says he does not know Randy and he says the people are probably sick of hearing them talk. Why don't we fight? Orton asks Kevin if he wants a match with him tonight. Orton tells Kevin he is own, but not right this minute. Orton drops his mic and exits the ring as a disappointed Owens looks on. Fans boo. Orton exits the mic as his music hits. Owens stares Orton down until his own music starts up. Owens poses for the crowd as they cheer him on.

Paul introduces himself and his client. Paul says for years people have been trying for these catchphrases to brand themselves as mainstream celebrities. People do not get that Brock does not need a catchphrase. The catchphrase is the fact that Brock Lesnar, since 2002, every single time he wants to, he reigns as your champion. Brock donning the tights, lacing up the boots, and taking someone to Suplex City is a rare event. It does not happen every night. When it happens, it is special.

This Thursday, when Brock lays waste to Ricochet, the master of the uppercut, imagine the beating that Ricochet gets because Brock Lesnar feels like Brock Lesnar owes him one. When Brock steps into the ring, the fact that he is wrestling is special. This Thursday is more special than usual because the stakes have never been higher than any other Brock Lesnar match. Why you ask? That is a good question, even coming from Canadians.

If Ricochet pulls off the miracle of miracles. If Ricochet emerges victorious over Brock Lesnar. If Ricochet becomes WWE Champion, he main events Wrestlemania against Drew McIntyre. It would change Wrestlemania. Paul says if his aunt had balls, she would be his uncle. When Brock F-5s Ricochet, he will move on to Wrestlemania. Paul says he has only been wrong about one spoiler in 7 or 8 years. At Wrestlemania, he will make mincemeat of Drew McIntyre and he will beat Drew and be done with him once and for all. Then you will realize that then, now, and forever... your WWE Champion BROCK LESNAR.
