In Ring Segment

Reigns in the stands, heads to the ring. Cole tells us to use #RomanIsRaw on Twitter. Reigns grabs a mic through cheers and pop.

Reigns – Unlike some people, when I come to the ring, I come with a point. Trip says he put me in the Battleground Fatal 4 Way because it's what's best for business. But maybe he did it so I could neutralize Cena, which I can. Maybe he thinks Kane can neutralize me, but he can't. All that happens and Orton is walking out with the Title. But he won't. I assess and attack. I've assessed this a thousand times, and I know what will happen. I'm a wanted man around here, but I've got a hair trigger.

"Cena sucks!" chants.

Reigns – When Roman Reigns is in the house, you're damn right Cena sucks! (HUGE pop) I don't are if The Authority is here or not, what they have to say it's irrelevant. What Orton has to say is irrelevant, because he's just a pawn in this game. Me, I'm not a pawn, I'm just the next WWE WHC. (pop) Believe THAT!

Fire erupts and out comes Kane. Kane glares down at Reigns. Reigns glares back at him.

Reigns – With their absence, are you, ah, standing in for The Authority now? Are you no longer the Devil's Favorite Demon? Because lately you've looked like Triple H's lapdog. Let me correct myself. Lately, you've just been Randy Orton's bitch! (pop)

Kane starts toward the ring. Reigns drops the mic and leaves the ring to meet Kane on the bottom of the ramp. Reigns on Kane, but then Reigns into the barricade. Reigns rolled in, but back out on Kane. Kane clotheslined over the barricade. Reigns over with a big head butt on Kane. Back and forth, then Kane fights back, bouncing Reigns' head off something back there. Reigns over the barricade. Kane over and Reigns face first into the post. Reigns rolled in, Kane in to stop him, but all the refs run to the ring (5, I think), but Kane chokeslams a ref in the ring.

Then the producers out! Fit Finlay, Mercury, and Jamie Noble are the three producers out, all in suits. Fit and Jamie hold Reigns back. Fit gets shovey with Reigns, then walks off. Jamie takes a punch, then Fit takes the spear. Kane on the apron takes a superman punch from Reigns. Mercury backs against Kane, as it he can hold Kane back by himself.

"Jerry!" chants.

King – Thank you. Put a damper on what was supposed to be a great night for two countrymen of yours. Pat Patterson and Bret Hart. Tonight, it's my honor to bring out a true Canadian legend, a fellow HOFer, the best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be, Bret 'The Hitman' Hart!

JBL says, "I'd debate that.

Bret – In fact, I got goosebumps up my arms. I'm getting that feeling I'd get when I was WWE World Champion. The best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be. It's the kind of rush I'd get when I had dreams of being the Excellence of Execution.

(climbs in the ring) You know, being here in Montreal, I'm reminded of a regret I have in my career. I'm not talking about the fact that I tapped out to my own submission hold to my idol Shawn Michaels, right here in this building. (serious heat) Or that I was so embarrassed that I pretended it was an elaborate screwjob! That you all bought into! My one regret is that through my own career, is that I was actually proud to be from a 3rd world country like Canada. (huge heat) But you know, come to think of it, I have another regret, that I never stood in the ring with the greatest performer in the WWE, Damien Sandow. Now Bret, I know that...

Renee – Please welcome The Miz. Last week you made your triumphant return.

Miz – I'm sure you have an outstanding question, but more important, I have a letter from a fan. Dear Miz, You're my favorite WWE Superstar and movie star. Last week when I heard of a former WWE Champion and multimedia star would return, I said a little prayer that it was you. I wasn't disappointed. But then you were interrupted by that rat faced, tattooed rock star, Jericho. When he viciously attacked you when you weren't looking, a part of me died inside. Please, put him in his place and continue your climb to headline WrestleMania once again, signed your biggest fan, Johnny Russo. ("What?") I get thousands of these letters Renee. The magnitude of what Jericho could have done to my face. This face is my livelihood. This face is my moneymaker. Think of what could have happened to The Marine 4, think about what could have happened to this company if something happened to this face. Most importantly, think about what the fans would loose. Little Johnny Russo. Don't worry Johnny, when it comes to this fist, Jericho is ready for his closeup. (camera closes in on Miz's fist)

I was wondering how you were going to save an entire universe when you can't even save yourself? Hahaha! Do you think it will be your words that can protect you from me? Because I believe that last week, in that very ring, I proved that actions speak much louder than words. Hahaha! Actions scream eternities to a generation with no tongue, yeah. You can go on Chris and say whatever you think you need to say, but I will hold your every word against you. Never, eeeever, let you forget. Because these people Chris, look at these people, that you used to call Jerichoholics, are now, they sing to a different tune. Because they know that I inspire them. They know that I got the whole world...

Jericho – Quiet! Would you please, shut the hell up! (The fans were right with Jericho, yelling the words.) Quiet Wyatt, you don't have to say anything else, because for once, I agree with every word you're saying. You're right, actions do speak louder than words, and right now my actions are this. This is just you and me, I'm going to come up that ramp, knock you out of that rocking chair, and beat your ass!

Rollins – Hey, don't come at me like that. Just because we have a match tonight doesn't mean we can't talk like two civilized adults here, alright? I know you don't trust me, and last week I did consider cashing in, but that was last week. Tonight's not about that. Tonight's about who's the best. When I beat you, greatest WWE Champion of all time, the measuring stick, and I prove that I'm the best, maybe then I'll cash in my contract. Or maybe, God forbid, you get hurt out there (laughter in his voice), an opportunity presents itself, maybe then I'll cash in. Either way, your days are numbered John, because if it's not me, maybe it will be Kane.

Cena – Maybe.

Rollins – If not Kane, maybe it will be Orton.

Cena – Maybe. Civilized. This is good. In the most civilized way possible, let me say, I think you're full of crap. Thank you for an extremely backhanded compliment. Allow me to give you a little one. You're good Seth, you're damn good. I know what The Authority sees in you. Now let's think, all those days you were dressing under the arena with The Shield, scrapping for everything. Times have changed, and I'm not talking about your futuristic jumpsuit. I mean you walk around now like a kid who signed a big contract, the case literally guarantees him to be Champion.

Rollins – That's right.

Cena – No, the only guarantee you got, tonight you have a match with a Champion, which means I guarantee you're in for the fight of your life, Seth.

Rollins (looking down his nose at Cena) – See you out there.
