In Ring Segment
Reigns through the stands to the ring. Video of Big Show beating Reigns last week, then Reigns returning to take out Big Show and Rollins, helping Bryan win his match. Reigns gets a mixed reaction from the fans.
Reigns – This time last week I stood here the winner of the 2015 Royal Rumble Match. (heat) When you win the Royal Rumble Match, you guarantee your spot at WrestleMania. Which says I fight Brock Lesnar and I beat Brock Lesnar for the WWE WHC! (heat) Also, The Authority made it clear that I'm not the guy they want in that spot. (mixed) That means the way I prove myself is I win Royal Rumble Match, beat Bryan at Fast Lane (heat), go on to WrestleMania and beat Brock Lesnar for the WWE WHC, then I will do it. This point on, I don't care who gets in my way. You get in my way, I got a spear with your name on it. You can bet your ass that you can believe that!
Bryan out to "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" He's all smiles. "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" fill the arena while he's in the ring.
Bryan – Easy there big dog. I didn't come out here to fight you. I came out to thank you. Last week you came out and speared Big Show, which was amazing! Without that Rollins might have beaten me, I might have been a goner. I wanted to thank you for the opportunity last week. But now you have an opportunity of your own at Fast Lane. You vs me. The winner face Brock Lesnar for the WWE WHC at WrestleMania.
Bryan waits and the "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" goes again, but not as loud.
Bryan – I get it, you're bigger than me, your stronger than me. When it comes to looks, I'd say we're about even. (Reigns laughs) But the reality is, and everyone here knows this, when it comes to wrestling, I am the better wrestler than you!
"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"

Steph – Hang on a second gentlemen. I know you two are ramped up for Fast Lane, we're all so excited. Fast Lane, for new subscribers is available for free on the WWE Network, as is the entire month of February.
Trip – The same PPV where I will go face to face with Sting. If he shows up. It's been two weeks since I called Sting out, I have yet to hear a word. So I am giving him to the end of the night. Sting, if you're listening, I want an answer by the end of tonight! Are you a man, or are you the coward that I think you are?
Steph – That's right, tensions are incredibly high, with everyone. I think that's why the two of you have been so antagonistic lately. Roman, I'll start with you. You cost Rollins his match on Rollins, and spear and innocent Big Show who was just minding the ring, and the reason why is because Big Show pinned you earlier in the night. You did it out of spite.
Reigns – No, no, no. I did it because I could.
Steph – That's even worse. And you Daniel, you stuff Kane into a casket and close the lid? That's where diseased bodies go to decompose. How sick and twisted are you?
Bryan – I mean, in all fairness, you guys did put me in that match, and also, considering what your husband has done in caskets, I thought you'd appreciate it.
Steph – You know, we can stand here and throw barbs back and forth, but as The Authority, as management, we take accountability very seriously. The two of you have causes emotional distress, physical pain, public humiliation, so we're going to take action, so the two of you will be in tag team action tonight, against Kane and Big Show. That match is right now!

Lana – Regardless of what the ignorant masses of America think, we are proud to face John Cena at Fast Lane. John Cena should be honored to face Rusev. You see, Rusev and I agree that John Cena has accomplished great things in WWE. Cena's never give up attitude has led him to be one of the greatest Champions in WWE history. Just like an award show like Oscars and Grammys acknowledge someone's great career, we want to recognize John Cena's career tonight.
Video all about Cena, starting good, but ending with bad things happening to Cena, including all major injuries.
Lana – 13 years is a long time, we wonder how a mortal man like John Cena can keep on going. His body must be so tired after all these battles. His body must ache. John Cena, we know you look stronger and greater than ever, inside you're more vulnerable. Your a man at your limits, awaiting annihilation.
Rusev takes the mic and gets heat.
Rusev – John Cena, the man you once were no longer exists. ("What?") You're no longer what you used to be John Cena! ("What?") You don't WHAT me, I'm a hero! ("What?") I'm a hero! ("What?") John Cena you're no longer that you, tough man, full of ruthless aggression! ("What?") Now your fighting spirit has left you. ("What?") And you're just weak! ("What?") at Fast Lane, John Cena I will break your body and crush you spirit! ("What?")
Cena's music and out he comes, eye still really black, mic in hand. He stays on the stage.
Cena – Alright, I'm half blind, but I'm not deaf. From what I gather, I hear Lana and Rusev talking like Rusev's already won this match at Fast Lane. From what I hear, I hear Rusev talking about how he's facing a tired, broken down shell of an old man. The only reason he's fighting is to prove that he's superior. He's unbeatable. If he's so unbeatable, and I'm such an easy walk through, I'm wondering why we're even having a match at Fast Lane. For the same reason all these people here tonight want you to shut the hell up. They know what I know, you're both full of yourselves and you're both full of crap. These people know me, they don't have to watch some of your lousy propaganda videos to realize that over the past 13 years I've been knocked down a few times. Got my nose broke, my neck broke, both my elbows cut, my eyes gouged out and that's just the tip of the iceberg. Here's the part of your little film you left out comrades. Every single time I get knocked down, I get back up! This is why we're having a match at Fast Lane. Yeah, you won some fights, but you need a lesson on respect! So at Fast Lane, this easy target, I'm going to hit you in the mouth so hard that your eyes water. At Fast Lane, this broken down shell, I'm going to lock you up in a pretzel so tight your arms go numb. And at Fast Lane, this here old man will hoist you up on his shoulders, adjust your attitude and by the time you wake up, the only thing you're going to be able to do is turn and ask Lana, 'Lana help Rusev, Rusev have booboo spot.' Don't get it twisted Rusev, I'm not going to take you lightly. I know you're going to show up at Fast Lane to try to hurt me you are everything you say you are. You are a super athlete, but at Fast Lane, we're going to find out if you're tough. You picked a fight with the wrong old man, son. Because at Fast Lane, this old man is gonna whip your ass!
Rusev pitches a fit in the ring, Lana tries to hold him back. "USA!" chants fill the arena.
Rusev – You're gonna kick my ass? John Cena, you talk a lot standing over there. You can't even see me from your one eye. (Rusev waves hand in front of his own face to mock Cena) You can't! You can't even see me John Cena. At WWE Fast Lane,i am going to crush you!
Cena – I see how this works. Hey, everybody, Rusev's got the jokes! It's a shame that Lana's got the balls. Feeling froggy, jump homeboy!
Rusev leaves the ring, Cena meets him at the bottom of the ramp. They fight a bit, then Rusev slams Cena the softest way possible on the ramp, as if Cena would break. They fight more there. Then back up and Cena lifts Rusev, carries him to the stage, trips slams Rusev down. Both up and Rusev pokes Cena in that blackened eye. Rusev sends Cena face first into the back of the stage.

In Ring Segment
Brock Lesnar and Heyman to the ring.
Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and I have been authorized this evening to disseminate some information on behalf of The Beast who imposes his presence upon you, Brock Lesnar. That's kind of the theme of tonight's sermon, information, because it's going to be apparent to my client that society no longer places any value on credible information. Look how far everyone has gone to crucify Brian Williams on NBC News for embellishing a story or two, outright lying, and yet Brian Williams is not the #1 liar in the land, in fact he's a distant second to a distinction that is held jointly by Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan. They are going to have a match at Fast Lane, the winner of that match, and the winner goes on to have an opportunity for that Championship against The Beast at WrestleMania. If either Bryan or Reigns come out and say they have a chance against Brock Lesnar, they're lying. To their families, to each other, and to each and every one of you. They're simply lying to their-selves. Let's look at Reigns, the baddest dude from the most feared tribe from the most violent island in Samoa, and yet I stood two feet away when Reigns looked eye to eye with Brock Lesnar, and Roman, that yellow stream running down your leg was not pineapple juice. Come on Roman, there's nothing to be afraid of, or hang your head down. It's a normal reaction facing The Beast. Then there's Daniel Bryan. "YES!" "YES!" "YES!" The tragic tale of the overachieving ultimate underdog who actually has lied to himself into believing he has a chance against Brock Lesnar. Ladies and gentlemen, let me make this simple for you. Look at Bryan, and look at Brock Lesnar. Do you really think Bryan has a chance?
"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"
Heyman – I'm not just talking about the size difference, because what Bryan is lacking in physical stature compared to Brock Lesnar, he more than makes up for with in-ring ability, knowledge of submission holds, grit, and a pipeline to God, because he's pulled more miracles out of his tuckus than we've ever seen anyone pull off, but do you really believe that Bryan is the one to beat the one in 21-1?
"YES!" "YES!" "NO!" "YES!" "YES!"
Heyman – Let me spell this out for you, so even you can understand this, it doesn't matter who wins at Fast Lane, the winner of that match should hop into a helicopter with Brian Williams and subject themselves to enemy fire, because that enemy fire is a hail storm in the form of an F5, because an F5 will take that chopper down, straight into the middle of the ring at WrestleMania, because that is the fate that awaits Bryan. That is the fate that awaits Reigns. That's the fate that awaits any man who tries to take the Championship away from The Beast, The Conqueror, the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE WHC, Brock Lesnar.

Recap of the opening bout, and Bryan with an accidental double feet on Reigns.
Renee – Please welcome Daniel Bryan. After what we just saw, do you think you and Reigns can coexist in your match later tonight?
Bryan – What happened was an accident, and I can't blame Reigns for reacting the way he did. In the heat of the moment, I might have done the same thing. So, do I think we can coexist tonight?
Reigns (from behind Bryan) – You're damn right we can! It's very clear, we have a common enemy, The Authority. Do I say we take them out, and that will leave all kind of room for us to handle our business at Fast Lane. Regardless of what happens, it's Bryan and Reigns at Fast Lane. See you out there Daniel.
Goldust – Hey, hey, this is getting out of hand! This is not Goldust talking, this is Dustin. You are my brother, Cody.
Stardust pushes Goldust into a leaning pile of PVC pipes, then gets right down in Goldust's face.
Stardust – I told you, never call me that name again! He is dead. Stardust!
Stardust hisses, then flees.
In Ring Segment
Trip – For 20 years I eat, sleep and breathe WWE. While others have come and gone, I have stayed here. My blood, sweat, tears, my passion, all to make this a better place. All of that, all of my life's work almost taken away by one man, Sting. Sting, the face of WCW! WCW, the company I helped destroy. (heat) Now, 14 years later, and Sting finally gathers up the guts to do something about it. Because for 14 years, he stayed away. For 14 years he knew I'd personally expose him. Now, for whatever reason, at Survivor Series, 14 years later Sting finally decides to take his shot. And when he takes his shot, does he take it like a man? No, he attacks like a coward. Well Sting, I am a man, and I am calling you out at Fast Lane, to stand in this ring, face to face with me, and I will look you dead in your eye and explain to you why you were right to stay away for 14 years. And if you agree, you agree to never show your face here again, then I will let you leave Fast Lane with your dignity in tact. I'm a patient man, but I've called Sting out, like a man, for two straight weeks with no answer. My patience has run out. Sting, I want an answer, and I want it now!

"We want Sting!" chants. The light go out completely. The lights come back up in the ring, and it appears to be Sting behind Trip. Trip turns and drops back to the mat to scurry away, but that wasn't Sting.
On the tron, behind Trip sitting in the ring, a black screen with white trees growing. In the tree branches forms Sting's face. Above it, in the same block letters as Trip's name earlier, pops up simply, "I accept". The screen simply flashes to a black screen with the white letters. Another caw and it's gone.
