  • After a video recap of Elimination Chamber Perth, Corey Graves & Wade Barrett welcomed the audience to the broadcast before transitioning into the opening segment.
  • The Bloodline (Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, Jimmy Uso & Solo Sikoa) came to the ring to cut a promo.

Reigns told The Bloodline that they were done here, but Heyman told Reigns there was more business to attend to.
    This transitioned into Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson making his SmackDown return. After making fun of Arizona's Drug Epidemic and trying to be flirty with the women in the crowd, Johnson issued a challenge to Cody Rhodes & Seth Rollins for night One of WrestleMania, where if they won, Rhodes would face Reigns with everyone barred from ringside; however, Rock said that if himself & Reigns won the match, Rhodes would have to challenge Reigns to a Bloodline Rules Match. Johnson was about to conclude his promo, but Reigns stopped him before asking Johnson to acknowledge him. The Rock obliged and acknowledged Reigns as his Tribal Chief before embracing with Reigns.
