Announce Segment

Byron is on announce in Cole's seat. He says Steph is on vaca this week, so all hell could break loose. (Booker T looks pissy, and JBL doesn't seem impressed with Byron trying to carry this as if he's Cole. Byron already looked lost and speechless from the end of JBL's first bit on mic.)

In Ring Segment

Big Show is standing next to his Andre The Giant Battle Royal trophy by announce.

Rollins – Before we get started here tonight...

Huge heat!

Rollins – before we get started, I want to take...

More heat!

Rollins – Look, I'm trying...

Serious heat!

Big Show – This is your Champion, show some respect!

More heat!

Rollins – It's okay Show, they're just jealous, I'd be jealous of me too. But I've got to send some well wishes to Triple H and Steph. They're on vacation, and if anyone deserves it, it's them. You saw the WrestleMania they were responsible for putting on. One of the most incredible WrestleManias of all time.

"You sold out!" chants.

Rollins – I really, really thought we were over this, guys. We're over a week removed from WrestleMania, and I'm the WWE WHC, come on. At this point we can firmly state that the biggest takeaway from WrestleMania wasn't that we broke the attendance record at Levi Stadium, that WrestleMania was the most watched WrestleMania of all time. Certainly not that we trended a record 142 times worldwide, that's huge, right? The biggest takeaway from WrestleMania is that The Authority always wins.

Heat!

Rollins – WrestleMania is all about creating moments and The Authority created them all night long. Start with Triple H, my idol, he hammered the nail in the coffin of WCW and single handedly defeated that face-painted-freak Sting, right? Big Show, you finally cemented your place as the greatest giant of all time by winning the Andre The Giant Battle Royal. And Kane! Kane! Kane, um, Kane, Kane was there too! Yeah!

Big Show – Thank you Seth. Now that I'm no longer under Andre The Giant's shadow, and quite frankly, I never really was, I am the greatest giant of all time. Now all the Superstars are under my shadow. The greatest WrestleMania of all time ended with a new WWE WHC. A true fighting Champion. One of honor, dignity, and respect. Seth Rollins, your new WWE WHC!

Heat!

Rollins – Thank you Show! Thank you! You are right. The future is now, and isn't just a new WWE WHC, the future, Seth Rollins is the greatest Champion of all time!

Serious heat!

Big Show – We should thank you, because at the greatest WrestleMania of all time, you gave us an epic, epic memory. A memory that will go down as one of the greatest things to happen at WrestleMania, and will live forever on the WWE Network. Thank you Seth Rollins. Thank you.

Rollins – Speaking of WrestleMania, there was Kane. Ah, Kane, damn it. Tell them Kane!

Kane – For the record, The Authority was successful at WrestleMania for the fact that...

Orton's music cuts Kane off from his stumbling. Orton is clapping.

Orton – You did it Seth, you got your WrestleMania moment. Let's hear it for Seth Rollins, everybody.

Serious heat!

Orton – Cashing in the MITB contract doesn't change the fact that at WrestleMania, I hit you with the most spectacular RKO of my career. You can't change history, and I beat you.

"RKO!"chants FILL the arena.

Rollins – You know what your problem is Randy? You're a guy who always sees things like glass half empty. Nothing is worse than a whiny little complainer. Boohoo!

Orton – I'm telling it like it is. I beat you at WrestleMania and should be able to do it for the WWE WHC, doesn't that sound like what's best for business? What do you say Mr. DOO? What do you think?

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

Orton – Or, do you need a few minutes to call Mommy and Daddy and ask if it's okay?

Kane – That's enough Orton. I'm still DOO and a key member of The Authority! I am still in a position of power, so you show me some respect. You've made it clear you want to challenge for the WWE WHC, but unfortunately for you, there's other Superstars more worthy of consideration. That's the reason that I've decided we will have a Triple Threat Match to determine the #1 Contender for the WWE WHC, who will face Rollins at Extreme Rules. Those Superstars are Roman Reigns, Ryback, and Randy Orton. That's what's best for business. Further more, each of you will compete in singles competition prior to the main event. Your match is next, against me!

J&J Security have to hold Rollins back as he's yelling and screaming at Kane for all of this.

Maddox – I thought you showed leadership...

Kane – You come barging in here, who the hell do you think you are?

Rollins (to Kane) – Who the hell do you think you are, huh? You know what? I'm sick of you not pulling your weight around here. Everyone knows the first priority is to protect me. You get that? Everyone in The Authority gets it but you.

Kane – I think I'm the only one who got it. You won MITB because of me, and wouldn't be Champion if not for me. As DOO, it's my job to do what's best for business, you defending your Title against a viable opponent at Extreme Rules is what's best for business. Maybe Orton is right. Maybe you are scared of him.

Rollins – I'm not scared of facing anyone for my Championship, let alone Orton. You know what I think is what's best for business? You stepping down as DOO! I think Trip and Steph would agree with me.

Kane – They are enjoying a well deserved vacation on a private island in the South Pacific, no cell phone, no Internet, no connection with the outside world. I'm in charge of things tonight whether you like it or not.

Rollins – Trip and Steph might be out of reach now, but when they get back, you're going to have a lot to answer to. You understand me?

Kane – Seth, I appreciate your enthusiasm, but your attitude is bordering on disrespectful. I'm in charge tonight, that means my job is to do what's best for business. And what's best for business is putting you in a match.

Rollins – What?

Kane – That match is next!

Rollins – Next? What? You've got to be kidding me!

Cena – Before we get down to business, the good city of Austin has declared this WWE Day! Sounds like you're fired up tonight. I am too, and with the utmost conviction, I can say, the Champ is here! Sounds like there's a group of you happy that I beat Rusev for this US Title. Maybe I'm out of tune, but it sounds like some of you would like someone to come out and take this away from me. I respect that, that's why I fought hard for this US Title – what it is, and what it represents. USA is the land of opportunity, and this is a symbol of excellence, also a symbol of opportunity. Last week I offered the first ever John Cena Open Issue Challenge. Gave an opportunity to any WWE Superstar to go face to face with the man who runs the place and see if they can get their name in the history books. For them, for this, for you. I'll tell you why, like me or hate me, take my WrestleMania opponent Rusev. Rusev wants a rematch for the US Championship, but wants it at Extreme Rules, against me, or now. That's fine for Extreme Rules, but what about tonight? What about us? What about you? Rusev wants to sit on his butt until Extreme Rules. Why can't we have a US Title match here in Austin? I want to give a warning to anyone who accepts my challenge tonight, or any other night, all I'm offering is an opportunity to step in and compete. If you think you're going to easily take this from me, you're dreaming. I fought extremely hard for the US Championship and I'm extremely proud of the USA. Simply put, you accept this challenge, step in here and step up, or you're gonna get stepped on. John Cena US Challenge starts now, and if you want some, come get some!
