Back from break, Mr. McMahon’s music played to a light reaction three hours deep into the taping. In the ring, McMahon did his now-regular routine of asking for a better reception. Lilian Garcia reintroduced McMahon.
A tired McMahon painted a picture of Shane McMahon winning at WrestleMania, then showing up on Raw the next night to declare new things for Raw. But, that is merely a dream. He said Shane faces a nightmare at WrestleMania when he faces The Undertaker. McMahon said the only person who will be standing tall in this ring will be him.
Vince painted another picture of Shane being an “impotent, shell of a man” who cannot go out in public. He said the good thing is he doesn’t have to lift a finger. Instead, his instrument of destruction, The Undertaker, will do the damage. Taker’s bell sounded and his entrance played as Raw hit the top of the hour.
Undertaker hit the ring steps, locking eyes with Vince before entering the ring. Vince sold concern as Taker paced around the ring to loud cheers. “Under-Taker” chant from the crowd. Vince warned Taker never to put his hands on him ever again, calling back to Taker grabbing him around the throat the last time he appeared on Raw.
Taker simply unbuttoned his jacket, removed his jacket, and then removed his hat. Vince said Taker showed poor judgment last time, and Vince also showed poor judgment bringing it up again, so he’s sorry. Vince then hyped Taker doing unspeakable things to Shane, breaking his body and his soul. Vince said this is an unholy alliance, or what’s best for business.
Suddenly, Shane McMahon’s music played. Shane bounced out on-stage, then strutted on the stage. Shane cautiously entered the ring, then strutted in front of Taker and around Vince. Taker did not take kindly to that. Shane then grabbed a mic as all three men jockeyed for position in the ring.
Shane spoke that Vince is definitely not what’s best for business anymore. Yet, he finds himself in the match of a lifetime at WrestleMania … against The Undertaker. Shane said he’s been watching footage of Taker trying to figure out how to beat him. So, he proceeded to reveal his plan. Shane vowed to fight for the fans and he will not stop as long as there is one heartbeat left in his body.
Taker yanked the mic away from Vince and told him, “And it still ain’t gonna be enough.” Taker told Shane what he has are these (his fists). Taker said these fists are his legacy, more than WrestleMania itself. Shane gave Taker his props, then said he can’t believe Taker is standing here dancing around like a puppet for Vince. Taker grimaced. He said no one controls him. Shane said he sees things differently. He has the misfortune of being Vince’s son, but Taker is just Vince’s b—–.
Taker grabbed Shane around the throat and tried to attack him, but Shane ducked and avoided (attempting to provide a visual of Shane being able to execute his plan). Suddenly, Vince shoved Shane into Taker, who chokeslammed him. Vince celebrated, then Taker turned his attention toward Vince. Taker went after Vince, who bailed from the ring to avoid Taker’s wrath.
Taker’s music played as Shane continued to sell in the ring. Cole said this approach has allowed Vince to survive for so many years. Raw closed with back-and-forth shots of Taker fired up and Vince pleased with himself 11 minutes past the top of the hour.
