**At the start of the show, RAW General Manager William Regal announced an idea called "Triple Threat Takeover" where for the next three weeks, one of the three competitors in the WrestleMania Triple Threat Match would be in charge of themselves and the other two wrestlers. This week, John Cena was drawn at "random" and opted to put himself in a match against Mr. Kennedy and pit Randy Orton against Triple H in a non-title match. Next week, either Orton or Triple H will be in charge.

It was announced during RAW that next week’s RAW from Milwaukee, WI will be a special 3-hour WrestleMania Rewind RAW where all the matches on the card will be rematches from past WrestleManias.
