In this segment, Shane McMahon started reading out Strowman’s fifth grade results with Elias and Jaxson Ryker standing with him. This angered the monster, and he came out looking to avenge himself.

McMahon let Ryker fight Strowman, and Strowman destroyed him.

Finally, he revealed the stipulation for the WrestleMania match – the two will collide inside a steel cage so that McMahon has nowhere to run.

Drew McIntyre issues an open challenge

The former WWE Champion was looking to fight anyone who would challenge him. Almost nobody was taking up his offer until he came across Ricochet.

Ricochet and McIntyre put up a good fight, but it ended with McIntyre delivering a claymore.

Following this, Mustafa Ali took up the open challenge and attacked McIntyre relentlessly. Ali’s domination was brief because McIntyre took over and delivered another claymore to the former Retribution leader.

Finally, McIntyre demanded Lashley come out, and the ‘Almighty’ did. ‘The Scottish Psychopath’ told Lashley that nothing can stop the WrestleMania match from happening.

Both of them started a brawl, but King Corbin interrupted. Corbin helped Lashley dominate McIntyre.
