MONDAY NIGHT RAW - FEBRUARY 15, 2016
Video: Contract signing from last week's Raw
Welcome to Monday Night Raw and this week Raw is coming to us from Anaheim, California. Michael Cole welcomes everyone to the Ambrose Asylum as Dean Ambrose kicks off Raw making his way out to the ring.
Ambrose says this Sunday he's in for the fight of his life and they're calling it brother vs brother vs beast. But that's Sunday. This is Monday Night Raw and he learned as a young kid when the big bull comes after you in the playground you have to get your fingernails dirty and have to do what you have to do and Brock Lesnar is pretty angry with Ambrose
Ambrose says it may be sunny in California but the weather forecast shows there's an F5 circling around and calls Lesnar out. Stephanie comes out instead.

Stephanie then asks the crowd if they want to see Dean Ambrose get F5'ed. Stephanie says tonight, Ambrose gets his F5 but it's not what he thinks. Tonight, F5 stands for Fatal Five Way and it will be for Ambrose's Intercontinental Championship and Stephanie says should Reigns interfere then Ambrose gets disqualified and not to bother showing up for FastLane on Sunday
