Orton winning last week on Raw to get to make a stip for his Extreme Rules match against Rollins. Then dissension within The Authority ranks. Kane ended up laying down, but not after much angst and a few shots on Rollins, almost becoming Klassik Kane. Rollins said the RKO will be banned, but Orton says the match will be in a cage!
In Ring Segment
The cage is over the ring, hanging there. Orton's music hits. Orton to the ring, announced by Eden. The cage is down on the ring. Orton checks it, gets in, slamming the door behind him, then pacing around the ring.
Orton – You know, for someone who prides themselves on being the smartest in the room, Rollins is one dumb bastard. Last week Rollins got to pick a stip and banned the RKO. Rollins made a mistake. He thinks it's my greatest weapon, but it's not. My greatest weapon is being able to inflict unspeakable pain upon those who I deem necessary and who I think deserves it, and Rollins deserves it. An RKO would be too quick and easy, so I will make it slow and agonizingly painful. When the door is locked, and everything is secure, I'm going to break your jaw. I'm going to break your jaw Seth, so these people and myself won't have to listen to you week in and week out. Then, I'm gonna drag your carcass to a corner and stick this boot so deep in your gut that I won't just knock the wind out of you, I might break a rib or two. As you're gasping for air, I'm going to pick you up my your hair...scratch that, I'm going to pick you up by that stupid little blond streak you got and run you into the cold hard steel over and over until every bone is aching, every inch of you feels like it's on fire. Once the beating is over, so will your reign as WWE WHC.
Rollins' music hits, and out he comes with J&J Security in tow, and stops on the stage.
Rollins – Randy, Randy, I don't want to come out and state the obvious, but you really have a bit of an anger problem.
Orton – Are you just now realizing I have issues with anger? Seth, that's not my problem. I don't have an anger problem, I have a Seth Rollins problem, and Sunday, I'm going to do everything I can to make sure it goes away.
Rollins – Yeah, about that. Randy, I gotta be honest, I wasn't really paying attention, but let's see if I got the gist of it. I'm a jerk, you're gonna beat me up, and all these losers who are looking for an excuse to ignore their miserable lives ate it up. Am I right? That about cover it?
Chants of, "Randy Orton!" and "You sold out!" can be heard.
Rollins – Randy, let me explain something to you. I play this game of human chess better than anyone. That's why I'm well on track to becoming the greatest Champ of all time. In that ring I can out maneuver everybody. Outside of that ring, I can out-think everybody. This Randy, this, all this, all of it, I'm the best at it. I'm standing here with the Title to prove it. I'm not taking anything from you Randy, you're one of the best of all time, a sure fire HoFer. As good as you are, I'm that much better. Cage or no cage, The Authority or no, you can make all the excuses you want, but at Extreme Rules, you will not be walking out WWE WHC. That is a promise. Get it all out of your system right now...
Orton – You just gave me a great idea, get it all out of my system. Since you banned the RKO on Sunday, after the break, I'm going backstage and RKO every son of a bitch I see! Then, before Raw goes off the air, Seth, I'm going to RKO you, and that's a promise!
Lots of glaring back and forth, but Orton is smirking, Rollins isn't.

In Ring Segment
Eden announces Trip to the ring.
Trip – A year ago The Authority was at a crossroads, needed to make a decision about the WWE. They found a man to lead the WWE into the next gen. A man to be the face of the WWE. If you look at it a few weeks after the greatest WrestleMania in history, you'd have to agree that Seth Rollins is that man. Now it's time to find the next Seth Rollins. That starts on June 23rd, live, on the USA Network, of Tough Enough. A reality show to allow you to possibly live your dream, and who hasn't dreamed of being a WWE Superstar? Who hasn't closed their eyes and dream what it's like to be on that stage? To hear their music hit, the roar of the crowd, walk down that ramp, stand in this ring, in front of tens of thousands of people, in front of millions at home. Who hasn't dreamed what they would see? Ask yourself, what would it be like to stand in the ring at WrestleMania, in front of 60,000 people, hold the WWE WHC over your head? To feel that fame,power, glory? All of it? That is the dream, and I'm here to tell you that being a WWE Superstar is better than any dream you could ever have. Now, you have the opportunity to turn your dream into reality. It starts tonight, show the WWE 'Universe' that you are tough enough. Send your video submission to WWE.com/toughenough, starting right now. Maybe you will be one of the ten men and five women, where at the end of the season, one man and one woman will be chosen by WWE decision makers and the WWE 'Universe' to receive WWE contracts, making them WWE Superstars. Do you have what it takes? Do you have what it takes? Do you have what it takes? If you do, then show the world that you are truly tough enough!
Kane's music, and he comes out in his suit, looking a bit hang-dog.
Trip – Kane, I have to admit that you're a little seasoned to be in Tough Enough.
Kane – All week I've left voice mails, texts, emails...
Trip – Kane, I got all of them, to be honest I was waiting for you to cool off.
Kane – Be that as it may, it's been my honor to be your DOO, but I cannot deal with the constant disrespect of the man who I helped become Champion, Seth Rollins. Since it's clear you put your faith in a man I feel is not worth your investment, my decision becomes obvious. I'm giving you my two week's notice.
Trip – Let's not do something we will regret tomorrow, let's just, go in the back and talk. We will talk like men, work it out like adults.
Rollins comes tearing out from backstage with J&J Security in tow.
Rollins – Not worth the investment, are you kidding me? Look, Boss, if he wants to quit, I say let him quit. We don't need a loser like Kane in The Authority anyway! I say goodbye, good riddance. To hell with him.
Kane – It's funny Seth, I don't remember you having the gall to call me a loser when I had my hand wrapped around your throat. And chokeslam...
Rollins – Then what happened Kane?
Trip – Not the time or the place guys.
Rollins – Then what happened was that you pulled me on top of you so I could win. Because it's your job to lose. You didn't want to do it, but you sucked up your pride, tucked your tail between your legs, became a coward and did what you were told, because that's what you always do!
Kane – You are nothing but a spoiled little punk who's been given everything and thinks that he earned it. You're only Champion because we made you Champion! I handed you the MITB case myself. You think anything would be different if we recruited Dean Ambrose? If we'd wanted to, we could have made El Torito Champion!
Rollins – Oh really?
Kane – Really!
Trip – Enough! Enough! Enough! Enough! (to Rollins, specifically) Enough! This is not how we do business. (to both) Kane did what was right last week. Kane did what's best for business, and always does. There's been no one more loyal to The Authority than Kane. Which is why, in your Steel Cage Match at Extreme Rules, I'm making Kane Guardian of the Gate. Anyone wants to get in or out of that cage, they will have to go through Kane.
Kane – Thank you Triple H, I won't let you down.
They shake hands.
Rollins – You can't be serious. You're gonna reward Kane for this behavior.
Trip – What did I just say?
Rollins – You said you were going to make Kane Gate Keeper for no good reason.
Trip – Which, to me, means that you should learn to get on the same page as him, really fast.
Kane extends his hand to Rollins. Rollins shakes, then stomps out of the ring with Trip and Kane watching him stomp off petulantly. Trip then pats Kane on the shoulder.

Kane – It means I'm going to protect the integrity of this match.
Rollins continues to argue over Kane's voice, and Kane keeps arguing back. Trip walks up.
Trip – You're at it already? I've known you for 20 years and you are one of the toughest men I know, but you are a corporate man now, with corporate responsibilities, which means you are no longer hellfire and brimstone, you understand me? No longer!
Kane – Oh yes, I am, and I'm gonna prove it.
Rollins – You see what I'm talkin' about?
Trip turns back to snarl at Rollins. Rollins eyes get wide and he leans back.
Trip – It took a lot of people to make you Champion, first and foremost, the guy who just walked out of here.
Rollins – Yeah, but.
Trip – You need to start appreciating that. You wanna think you're the man? That (strap) doesn't make you the man. Going out and proving it every night, THAT's what makes you the man! Which is why tonight...
Rollins – Tonight? Why tonight? What about Orton threatening to RKO me?
Trip – Tonight, tonight you're going to step into the ring and have the match you were supposed to have last week. Tonight you are facing Dolph Ziggler. And you had better start showing the world what I already know.
Rollins – You know what? I don't need to face Dolph Ziggler tonight, I will destroy Dolph Ziggler tonight. After that, the world will know exactly what I'm all about. I'm no longer the future, I am the man.
Naomi vs Brie
Naomi swaggers out in lime green leopard outfit. No smiles, no dancing. Split-screen...
Naomi – How many times do I need to beat a Bella for me to prove that I should be Divas Champion, yet those people keep telling me to be a good girl and wait my turn. Paige got in my way, I removed her from the equation. Truth is, I don't care what those people want from me anymore, I'm done waiting.

It's Bo Dallas' music.
Bo – Roman, I couldn't help but to notice anger in your voice. As the Jedi master Yoda said, in the greatest Star Wars movie ever made, Episode 1 – Anger leads to hate, and hate leads to suffering, and we all know you suffered after being chokeslammed on a taxi cab last week. And you've definitely suffered after failing at WrestleMania. Roman, face it, you're kind of a bust. (Reigns smirks a bit.) You're Outback Jack in kevlar. You are the Tim Tebow of the WWE! (Reigns rolls his eyes at this one.) You get chance, after chance, after chance, and you've failed every single time. (Reigns is looking decidedly annoyed now.) But it doesn't have to be that way, despite what millions of people think, I know that one day, you can be WWE WHC. If you work hard, your dreams will, and can come true. All you have to do is Bolieve!
Superman punch to Bo. Reigns is ready, and when Bo gets up, Reigns spears him.
Reigns – If Big Show had any guts, he'd be out here tonight. But he has no choice on Sunday. At Extreme Rules I will bring the big fight to Big Show, and I will be the last man standing, and you can...

Sheamus – Well, that was easy, huh? Oh, arg, right now I could pin Ryder 1-2-3, but where's the fun in that? I think he deserves more than a five second match. Come on Ryder! Come on. That's the problem with the WWE. All these pretenders. Like you, none of you would last 5 seconds in the ring with me. You alright lad?

US Championship Open Challenge – John Cena (c) vs Kane
Cena to the ring through the fans clearly singing along with his music. Eden doesn't finish announcing before he takes her mic.
Cena – Albany, you still got something in the tank? You know and I know that on Sunday, we go Extreme! For one night it's not about the rules, but about the revenge. Rusev means business, and why shouldn't he?
Dueling Cena chants.
Cena – It seems as though Rusev brought friends tonight, but Rusev means business because I gave him his first loss at WrestleMania. And I know he, along with some of you, cringe each time you hear, the Champ is here! But that's why at Extreme Rules, a normal win won't be good for Rusev, he wants to destroy. That's why Rusev chose a Russian Chain Match, where the winner has to touch all four corners consecutively, but to do that, the loser must be beaten damn near lifeless. So Rusev's plan is to lock me into ½ of that chain and do something that no man has done before, and that's take the fighting spirit away from me. Because whether you're a Cena fan or Rusev fan, you know I will never give up, and fight to win. Rusev fans will dig this one. Rusev's plan is to beat me motionless, to confidently stomp to all four corners to get back his US Championship, drop his Russian flag, and to prove to all of you that WrestleMania was a fluke. That's a hell of a plan. There's just one problem. My name is John Cena, and for ten years I've proven that I get back up! Here's my plan for Sunday. Rusev, I'm locking you into ½ of that chain, beating the dog crap out of ya and take to each corner, get my hand raised, drop the American flag, and prove that WrestleMania was no fluke, it was a statement. A statement that the Champ is here, that this is s symbol of excellence and opportunity, and at Extreme Rules Rusev has the opportunity to that that chain shove straight up his ass! I know what you all are thinking, does that mean I'm not defending the US Title here, hell yeah we're gonna have a fight up in here tonight! I just want to send a message to the underdog, under-appreciated, undersized that's thinking that I'm focus on Sunday, and not in a losing mood. Albany is the place to be, John Cena is the man to beat, and the US Open Challenge starts now. You want some? Come get some!

I'm the sole reason Damien Sandow has a job in the WWE any more, and then to have the audacity to challenge me for my brand is an absolute joke! This is my movie. I did my own stunts. I went through boot camp training to prepare for this role. I'm a fighting machine, and tomorrow I will wake up victorious and will celebrate my latest film, while that poser, that poser...

Wyatt – (Unintelligible) Is it money? Is it power? Is it respect? For most men, it would be the combination of the three things, but you, you're different, just like me! But unlike me, there's the fear that motivates you. You can lift all the weights of the world, but there's not enough muscle to lift off the weights of your own personal failures. The weight will drag you down. That weight will suffocate you. That weight will blind you, until all you see is my face, looking down at you. Hahaha!

Kane – What are you talking about?

Rollins – I just did what I said I was gonna do, and it proves I am the man. As for old Randy Orton, at Extreme Rules, Randy, your RKO won't save you, and I'm gonna prove for once and for all that I am...
Trip's music cuts Rollins off. Trip to the ring.
Trip – Ladies and gentlemen, the man who will defeat Randy Orton this Sunday, the WWE WHC, Seth Rollins!
Rollins poses and acts the peacock.
Trip – Now that we have a second, let's take a look at...
Rollins pulls the mic out of a shocked Trip's hand. Trip really looks very unhappy about this.
Rollins – Wait, wait, wait, wait, before you continue, let me finish my thought. I just proved that I'm the man by dismantling Dolph Ziggler, and this Sunday at Extreme Rules, I will prove that this is my WWE when I pin Randy Orton's shoulders to the mat for 1-2-3, rendering Kane as Gate Keeper completely useless, and, speaking of Kane, you need to stop being so...
Kane's music hits. J&J Security up the ramp, trying to stop Kane. Trip also on the ramp. Rollins calls for the cage to come down. Kane heads down the ramp, but is stopped again. Rollins demands they hurry with the cage as he watches Kane intently. The cage locks into place, and the fans erupt. Rollins turns to find he's in the cage with Orton. Rollins tries to flee, but he's caught by Orton. Orton all over Rollins. Rollins back up, standing on the top rope. Orton pulls Rollins off the rope, hitting the RKO out of nowhere on Rollins as he comes down.
Trip looks really unimpressed as he looks in the ring, but it's not sure if he's looking at Rollins for what he's said, what he's done, or into the ring at Orton for the RKO. Orton poses on the corners for the fans.
