Here are the results from tonight’s (Mon. February 27, 2017) episode of WWE Monday Night RAW (courtesy of PWInsider):
We are in Green Bay, Wisconsin and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton.
Bill says that he promises everyone in the arena and everyone watching, his wife, his son, and Kevin Owens that he will deliver so he will see him on Sunday.
Kevin Owens does not wait for Sunday and he makes his way onto the stage.
Kevin says that it is good that Bill is in a good mood because he is in a good mood too. When he was in his nice suit and his nice spotlight, he got a lot off his chest, but there was one thing missing. Bill was not there. He can tell him something to Bill’s face. Kevin says he made a promise when he came to the WWE. He said when he came to the WWE, he would grab it by the throat and show everyone what he is about.
On his first night, he beat John Cena. He beat the poster boy for the last decade on night one. Then he beat the crazy guy Dean Ambrose. He beat the Flavor of the Month, AJ Styles. The architect, he beat him. The Big Guy, Roman Reigns. He beat him too. Kevin says he will not bring up what he did to Chris Jericho because he does not matter.
Kevin tells Bill no matter how loud these sheep chant your name (and they chant his name), you’re next. Kevin says that he is not saying in the same cute way that Goldberg does because it is his catchphrase. You are next in the evolution of Kevin Owens as Universal Champion.
Bill says that everyone should give Kevin a hand for his rousing speech. Bill says it pissed him off, so why wait until Sunday. He wants to give Green Bay something.
Kevin says he does not speak Neanderthal and fight here right now. Kevin says let’s do it in a Green Bay Street Fight.
Kevin stops and says that Green Bay does not deserve to see him fight. They will fight, this Sunday and he cannot wait for the moment when the referee counts to three and he stands over Goldberg with the Universal Title. Kevin says the Goldberg chant dies on Sunday.

What did I sacrifice for that? Seth says he pointed so many fingers and made so many excuses. Seth says he told the world he did not sell out, he bought in. Seth says he should have known better.

You are not stupid like these people. You know how this works. Hunter says he used Seth up and spit him out. Hunter tells Seth to man up and get over it. When he was doing that to him, you were profiting along the way. Hunter says he told everyone that you were the future, but you are the past. You are another washed up and beat up Superstar who is worthless.
Hunter tells Seth to salvage what is left. You need to make the right decision. This is the most pivotal decision you have to make. Do not come to Wrestlemania. Do not call him out at Wrestlemania because he is done playing with Seth. He is done warding you. If you show up at Wrestlemania, Hunter swears if you show up it will be the last thing you ever do in a WWE ring.
