WWE RAW Results (3/21) Chicago, IL – We are live from the Allstate Arena near Chicago, IL, as Stone Cold Steve Austin music hits and… Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring, dressed like Austin (fake bald head included) and making the crowd furious.

Kevin asks if Chicago is ready to see Kevin Owens open a can of whoop ass at Wrestlemania and he wants a Hell Yeah.  Owens asks again and he does not get the response he wants so he WHATs a few times.  Owens says he heard all of the things that Kevin Owens said about Texas and they were horrible things, but they were true.  Owens says, as Austin, that when he was invited to be in the KO show, you saw that horrible video I did.  I drove into the middle of nowhere acting like a bad ass in front of my little golf cart.  I didn’t know what I was going to do so I ran my little mealy mouth and accept Kevin’s offer.  I don’t do a lot of thinking at this time.  The lights are on, but is anybody home?  Eh Eh.  Kevin, as Austin, says he is going to Wrestlemania to be on the KO Show. Kevin says you are the stupidest sons of bitches he ever saw.

Steve Austin’s music plays again and Kevin is in shock but it is another ruse.

Kevin asks what the saying is.  Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on you for being idiots.  Owens says that’s the bottom line.  Now it is time for some liquid courage before Owens kicks his ass.

Owens asks for some beers but he is not going to be a wide receiver for the Bears, or center fielder for the Cubs. Kevin wants the music stopped.  Kevin wants to know where he learned to throw beers because he sucks.  Owens tells him to hand him the beer in the ring.   Owens takes the beer and then he kicks the guy and hits a stunner. Owens opens the beers and then pours them on the beer tosser.  Owens throws the beer up the aisle to the stage.  Owens poses on the turnbuckles.

In the Arena:

We are back and Becky is in the center of the ring on a chair.  She says there is a question that she asks herself a lot.  Maybe you do but your mind doesn’t think in symphonies.  What does it profit a man to gain the world and lose their soul.  What does it mean to gain the world?  It means a lot to many people.  She says it was 8 months ago when she first faced Bianca Belair.  It was fifteen long months that I went without holding this.  Not because someone beat me, but because I was forced to submit it.  Every day that went by was more painful and agonizing.  I knew that I would do what it took to get back my Precious.  What does it profit a man?  The only thing that matters inside and outside the confines of this ropes is all that I am.  I am power and glory. I am the prize at the top of the mountain.  This is my world.  When I came back and all of you chose Bianca over me, that is when I knew I would sell my soul to keep this.

Bianca, you don’t have what it takes to beat me.  You can whip me with your hair and you can crush my throat, but I will crush yours worse.  You didn’t mean to injure me, but I meant to injure you.  An eye for an eye and a throat for a throat.  You are in the hospital.  If I take what means the most from you, your hair, you will lose a piece of your soul.  You don’t want to lose your soul and I have already sold mine. I would do it every day of the week and twice on Monday if it meant keeping this on my shoulder.

Bianca, let me ask you, what does it profit a man to gain the world and lose his soul? I’ll show you and the rest of the world at Wrestlemania, if you make it.
