In-Ring Segment: The Bloodline (Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso, and Paul Heyman)
Reigns tells Arizona to acknowledge him. The crowd obliges. Reigns tells the crowd that they are supposed to be louder. Everyone boos. Reigns quips that maybe they are in the wrong place. Reigns tells them to acknowledge him again. The crowd boos and chants for Cody Rhodes. Reigns is visibly annoyed and tells everyone if they don’t get on the same page, he’s fulfilled his obligation, and they will leave if they don’t get this right. Reigns screams for the crowd to acknowledge him. The crowd boos louder. The Cody Rhodes chants are deafening. Reigns says that’s it. They are done.
Reigns turns to Heyman and tells him to fuel the jet because they are leaving. Heyman sheepishly tells Reigns that they can’t leave yet because “he” still has to come out to handle some business. Reigns scoffs and leans on the ropes. Heyman give The Rock a glowing introduction noting all of his accomplishments. After the break, The Rock’s music hits. As we wait for him to enter, the rest of The Bloodline looks annoyed waiting for him in the ring. The Rock SLOWLY makes his way to the ring, wearing a shirt straight from his Nation of Domination collection.
The Rock asks the crowd if they want to boo him. He’s got some news that some of them will all be happy about. The Rock asks if there were many people from Phoenix here tonight. The crowd cheers. The Rock says this makes sense. The number one city for cocaine and meth use is Phoenix, Arizona. The Rock says, FINALLY… and instead of his usual schtick, he adds that finally, their lives have meaning because these cactus-loving crackheads finally have something worth shooting into their veins. The Rock says they are all in a good mood. Professional wrestling is exciting and electrifying again for the first time in decades. That’s why they are sold out everywhere, including this crack den with popcorn they are in.
Wrestling is cool again because of The Bloodline. The Rock says Cody Rhodes isn’t cool. Rhodes had the nerve to challenge him. The Rock has an answer for Rhodes’ challenge: no. You don’t get to go one-on-one with The Rock just because you want to. The Rock calls Rhodes a fool for challenging him when he has to face the most dominant champion ever, Roman Reigns. The Bloodline laughed at Rhodes challenge, but they are business men. They have a counteroffer. The Rock challenges Rhodes, and the walking clown-emoji Seth Rollins to a tag team match on night one of WrestleMania.
If Rhodes and Rollins win on night one, The Bloodline will be barred from night two of WrestleMania. Rhodes’ title match against Roman Reigns will have no Bloodling interference. If Reigns and The Rock win, the Reigns/Rhodes match will be Bloodline rules. Anything goes. Rhodes has to show up on SmackDown next week to accept. If Rhodes doesn’t agree to this, there isn’t a man backstage who can stop The Rock from making sure Rhodes loses at WrestleMania. The Rock tries to do his if you smell gimmick, but Reigns puts his hand on the mic and stops The Rock.
EVERYONE is shocked. The Rock stares daggers through Reigns. Heyman hands Reigns a mic. Reigns says he needs something from The Rock. He will do anything for his family, but he needs one thing from The Rock. Reigns looks The Rock in his eyes and tells him to acknowledge him. A holy sh*t chant breaks out. The Rock takes off his shades and acknowledges Reigns as his Tribal Chief. Reigns and The Rock shake hands. The crowd breaks into a “you sold out” chant. The Rock notes that they will do anything for family and tells them all to go home an smoke some more crack. The Rock starts his if you smell but, but he stops and hands the mic to Reigns. Reigns says what The Bloodline is cooking.

Backstage, LA Knight is looking for AJ Styles, and he has a present for him (spoiler alert, it’s a chair). Austin Theory and Grayson Waller tell Knight they haven’t seen Styles. Waller and Theory are watching a video of Logan Paul costing Randy Orton the Elimination Chamber match. Waller and Theory are having way too much fun laughing at Orton’s misery. Orton walks in and tells them to figure out which one of them will meet him in the ring tonight. Waller offers up Theory, which seems to be a trend. Theory is upset. Waller tells Theory he just got him a main event match with Randy Orton and its a good thing.
