S3 Episode 1 Raw & Smackdown Card
Episode #1 (Apr. 17, 2020):
Show Opener: Roman Reigns opens RAW. Roman says that he is so glad that he's still here. Wrestlemania was probably one of the hardest contests he's ever faced in a long while. Goldberg was no joke. And Bryan, we've had our differences, but what you do in the ring is nothing short of impeccable. But now I'm here with the WWE Championship. Roman raises the title. Roman says that he welcomes all challengers. He's not going to be a champion that just hoards his gold. "I want to have a match every week. If you beat me, you get a shot at the title. It's as simple as that" Roman then says there was one guy who peaked his interest over on Smackdown. So Keith Lee if you wanna go dawg lets go. You and me, one-on-one, you beat me, I'll give you a title shot. What do you say? Roman leaves. Match #1: Lucha House Party vs. Bobby Lashley & Cesaro w/ Lana -Squash Match RESULTS: BOBBY LASHLEY & CESARO WINS Segment: Announcement of MITB women's entrants into Becky Lynch backstage promo. Becky Lynch is asked about the end of her lengthy run as the RAW Women's Champion and her first loss in months to The Goddess Alexa Bliss. Becky Lynch says that what happened at Wrestlemania was a sham. What Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax did was horrendous.But that won't stop the Man. Nothing has stopped the Man. At Money in the Bank, she will climb that ladder to the top of the ring, not Carmella, not Bliss's crony Nia Jax nor Ronnie's faux horsewoman Shayna Baszler. Nothing can stop the Man from becoming the Man with the Bank.

He says look at what 8 years has done to us Miz. We were on top of the world before I left. And now, look at you. You haven't won a match in months. Your former rival just crushed you. When I came back to WWE, I came back expecting greatness, which is why I teamed with you Miz. Cause you were great. Now you are a shell of your former self. If you want this baby back (motions towards IC title) you have to come over to Slamtown and find out what royalty actually looks like. I am better than you Miz by a country mile and there is nothing you can or will do to make up for lack of skill. so that's right Miz & Morrison Hey hey ho ho...No mo. Segment: Edge thanking everyone to living his new dream of coming back into this ring that he loves and having a match at Wrestlemania that only he competes in 100%, but wins.
