In Ring Segment

The Shield is standing across the front of the ring at the bottom of the ramp. Justin announces them as the champs they are. Triple H's music hits and he comes out to what sounds like huge pop. Justin announces him as the COO of the WWE. Trip out in a power suit, light shirt, red striped tie. Down the ramp, surveys The Shield, smiles, then heads into the ring. King, Cole and JBL discuss what's happened with Bryan, Ziggler and Big Show last week. Trip's music ends and the fans are wild for him.

Trip – Let me take you back to a moment that will never be forgotten. A paradigm shift, the dawning of a new era. Let me take you back to SummerSlam. (video of the pedigree and Orton winning) That was business, what was best for business. That wasn't personal, all what's best for business. But let's take you back to the end of RAW last week. (video of Trip calling Bryan out, then calling for The Shield to attack Bryan, but Trip stopped the bomb for Bryan to come into the ring, he came in to face Trip but ate an RKO) I will admit that was personal. You want to know why Bryan I humiliated you and had you beat down? Because of your actions Bryan. Every action had a consequence. You made it personal by insulting my wife, me, my family, and that was the personal response you get for it. I'm willing to be the bigger man and move on as if it hasn't happened. I'm willing to be a business man with you. Speaking of business. Anyone check those ratings? Through the roof. Social media, sponsorships, every indicator we have is through the roof! Business is booming! It's all for one man, the face of the WWE. I would like for you to show you respect as I bring that man out here. Welcome your Champion, your future, what you deserve, The Viper, Randy Orton!

Orton comes out to HUGE pop. Orton into the ring to pose.

Trip – I'd like to congratulate you for breathing new life into the WWE, the WWE Championship. As COO of this company, I like to award people who excel, people who grab the brass ring and run with it. I got you a little gift. I'd like to make it clear that...

"NO!" "NO!" "NO!"

Trip – Yes. I got this out of my own pocket, not from the WWE. This is from me personally. A brand new Cadillac Escalade. Out comes the black car.

Orton – Thanks, for this very generous gift. I want to thank you for having the vision and business acumen that the only man to be the face of the WWE is me.

Trip – Go check it out Randy, it's awesome.

Bryan's music hits and he comes out on stage and gets the "YES!" chants going so much louder than his music.

Bryan – Would you look at that. Sweet ride Randy. That's way nicer than my Honda Fit, I mean, that's awesome, and well deserved. You worked really hard for that WWE Championship. While you're out here making thank yous, there's a couple I'd like to make.

"Daniel Bryan!"

Bryan – I think now would be an opportune time to thank each person here and in the WWE 'Universe' because I'm not the biggest, strongest, or prettiest, that's twinkle toes Orton in there. Despite me not being any of those things, you have believed in me, supported me, and you have no idea what that means to me. Secondly...

"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"

Bryan – You guys are awesome. Secondly I'd like to thank John Cena (mixed). Thank you John for the opportunity to wrestle in the main event at SummerSlam, because clearly someone like Trip wouldn't have given me that opportunity. John, thank you. And lastly, I would like to thank Trip (heat). I'd like to thank Trip for ending this charade and finally showing your true colors at SummerSlam. Thank you for proving to everybody that what's best for business and what the WWE Champion should look like is as narrow minded and as misguided as Vince McMahon. I mean, look at yourself Hunter. Look at him, the rebel in the leather jacket who used to thumb his nose at authority is just a sellout in a suit who thumbs his rather large nose at each member of the 'Universe'.

Orton – Dan, Dan, you have to think about who you're talking to, this is the COO of the WWE, and I'm the WWE Champion, you need to show us the respect we deserve. You might not have heard it earlier, but I'm the face of the WWE!

Bryan – Oh, the face of the WWE! Let's hear it for the face of the WWE. The face! At NoC, when I get my rematch, that face is going to be rearranged. Trip, your vision of the future will be rearranged too because I will be the WWE Champion. "YES!" "YES!" "YES!"

Trip – Oh, isn't that a sweet little fantasy Jimney Cricket? Yeah, it really is. That's really sweet. (singing) When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are. You know what Daniel, in the real world it makes a difference who you are. It makes all the difference in the world! You are not an A player. Orton is an A player. You are nothing more than a B at best! Now, you want to prove yourself to the world. I'm all about opportunity, I'll give you an opportunity to have your little fantasy tonight when you face Rollins. By the way, since you're so big on your great work ethic, when you're done with Rollins, if you get past him, you get Ambrose. If you limp away from Ambrose, I'll give you the gift of Reigns. I'm going to give you the gift that keeps on giving. I'm going to give you the gift of justice. I'm going to give you the gift of The Shield in a Gauntlet Match. You want to know why I'm willing to do that for you. I believe in you Daniel. I believe in you, and I believe in what is best for business.

Orton poses in the ring.

Orton – Let me guess Christian, you have a problem with the way things are run around here. At SummerSlam I was a winner and you were a loser, just like tonight. History will repeat itself. I'll win and you will lose after I hit you with an RKO.

Everyone saw me go through Brock to get Heyman. I hit him in the face and locked on the vice, but Heyman deserves more, deserves worse, and I'll give it to him tonight. I want Heyman.

Heyman – A vote? Punk is standing there like a deranged politician so he can get his hands on me? They're putting my health and well being to the WWE 'Universe'.
Axel – I've got this, Punk will have to go through me. He will get a DQ, or counted out. He will have to out wrestle me, and he can't do that. The situation is better than perfect. You believe in me right Paul?
Heyman – Like my life depends on it.

(Bellas yelling at AJ to say it to their faces, but they don't head up the ring to face AJ) They just weren't talented enough to be champs. I've done more in one year than in your entire collective careers. I have saved your Divas Division, shattered glass ceilings and broken down doors, why? So a bunch of ungrateful, stiff, plastic mannequins can walk on through without as much as a thank you? You guys can't even go backstage, shake my hand and look me in the eye because you know that I worked my entire life to get here, and you were just handed 15 minutes of fame. I didn't get here because I'm cute, or came from some famous wrestling family, or because I SUCKED up to the right people. I got here because I'm good. I earned this Championship. No matter how many red carpets you want to walk in you $4,000 ridiculous heels, you will never be able to lace up my Chuck Taylors. Your all worthless excuses for womena nd will never be able to touch me. And that is reality.

AJ throws down her mic as the rest are still down by the ring yelling back at her. AJ skips around the ring, so the Bellas and Eva skip around in circles together.
