Rollins – Thank you for coming out to Monday Night Raw. Actually, actually, welcome to Monday Night Rollins! Let's face it, week in and out, I'm the best thing about Raw, and your WWE WHC. Before we go further, I want to acknowledge Ambrose. Ambrose brought the fight to me like never before. He kept his promise and brought his A game. The only problem is that as good as it is, it's not quite as good as mine. Last night I made good on my promise and beat Ambrose by myself in one of the greatest Ladder Matches in WWE history and took back my WWE WHC. Hey, I don't want to be all bragadocious. I'm just one man and it takes a great team to make a great man thrive. Grasping the Title I had to hold back tears thinking of those who got me to the top of the mountain. I'm a first class team player and want to take a second to acknowledge all the people who helped me get to where I am. Think about it, I'm just a kid from Davenport, Iowa. Think about how far I've come. It's incredible. I want to thank everybody. I actually made a list, that's how important this is to me. (heat) Please, please, please. Lack of respect from you guys, come on now! First, and foremost I'd like to thank Seth Rollins! And Seth Rollins. And Seth Rollins. And Seth Rollins. And Seth Rollins. And Seth Rollins. And Seth Rollins. And Seth Rollins, and there's more. I don't want to leave anyone out, this is real important to me. Uh, Seth Rollins, Seth Rollins, Seth Rollins, Seth Rollins. Oh, yeah, I'm leaving someone out. Yeah, Seth Rollins. Last, but certainly not least, Seth Rollins. Who else would I thank? Not dumb and dumber, aka J&J Security. I didn't need them. I certainly wouldn't thank the devil's favorite dinosaur. I didn't need him. Hell, I didn't need Triple H and Steph. You know why? Because that's how good I am! With my performance last night, I might have well punched my ticket to the Hall of Fame. Parents all over the world are going to be naming their children after me! (off comes the belt) Take a good look, because this is what a WWE WHC looks like. (heat) Johnny Idiot Face (Manziel) over there isn't going to bring you a Title. (heat) LeBron James isn't bringing the Title back to Cleveland! (more heat) This is the only Championship you should be celebrating, so soak it up, because I'm leaving this piece of crap town, and I am taking this Title with me. You understand that?
Ambrose's music and out he stomps. Rollins is pissed in the ring as the fans go wild for Ambrose on the stage. Ambrose limps to the ring. They meet at the bottom of the ramp with punches.

Rollins grabs his strap and heads up the ramp. Ambrose grabs a chair and a mic, back into the ring.
Ambrose – That Title might have slipped, literally, through my fingers, as we crashed to the mat last night Seth, but when you're out here running you mouth, I remembered just how much I enjoyed making your life a living hell over the past year. Hell, I don't think I want it to end. So, we're going to change things up tonight. I'm going to take a seat, right here in the great state of Ohio, and I ain't leaving until you get your ass back out here.
Ambrose sits and waits with a smirk.
In Ring Segment
Ambrose still in the ring, waiting. The fans love it.
Rollins rushes in to Trip and Steph.
Rollins – So, what's the deal? We going to let Ambrose sit out there and hold the show hostage? That's what we're doin'?
Trip – It's taken care of.
Rollins – So, I beat him last night. It's my Title, my show, we make the decisions around here, right? Not him. Right?
Steph – Are you listening to yourself? We are. We heard you out there in the arena, and certainly don't sound like you need us. You certainly said it again.
Rollins – I didn't say that.
Steph – You did say that.
Trip – Now you're calling her a liar?
Rollins – N-n-n-n-n-n-no! I didn't do that. I'd never say that.
Trip – It's what it sounds like.
Rollins – I'd never say that. I would never disrespect you guys like that. You know that. I was out there sticking it to everyone who said I couldn't do it on my own. J&J Security, Kane, all these stupid people. This is us, right? This is what's best for business. Let's get Ambrose out of here and we can move on as us.
Trip – We were just discussing what's next for the WWE WHC, who you next challenger is. Could be anybody, including Ambrose. But you'll find out tonight, when everybody else does. We'll make the decision by the end of the night.
Rollins – Do I get a say in that? I'm the Champ.
Trip – We trusted you to beat Ambrose all by yourself. Now, you can trust us to make this decision all by ourselves.
Rollins – But...
Steph – Thanks for stopping by.
Rollins leaves and Steph looks up at Trip.
In Ring Segment
Sheamus' music hits, and out he comes, mic and case in hand. He swaggers down the ramp.
Sheamus – You know Deano, you and I are very much alike. We both like to fight, and we both made bold predictions at MITB. The difference is lad, I'm a winner, and you're a loser. At MITB, you lost, where I became Mr. MITB! (heat) You know what? This means I'm one brogue kick away from becoming WWE WHC anytime, anyplace, anywhere! Who knows, may even happen tonight. The Authority thought it would be a great way to celebrate for me to come down here and kick your head straight off your shoulders. Purely for my entertainment.

Noble – Look Seth, we ain't heard a word, even if we had, we wouldn't tell you. But I know who I think they should choose.
Rollins – Oh, really?
Noble – They should pick the Superstar who pinned you in the middle of the ring, just last week. My boy, Joey Mercury.
Rollins – Wow, just when I think you couldn't get any dumber Jamie. Are you drinking your grandaddy's moonshine? Reliving your glory days of WCW? No one wants to see a match between Joey and I. I think you're here praying I'll give you your jobs back.
Mercury – I think, you're afraid of me...
Rollins – Oh, I...
Mercury – I wasn't finished! I know you're afraid to get in the ring with me, no matter what happens the rest of your career, the record books will always show, you lost to J&J Security! See you're all by yourself, vulnerable, so it doesn't become a question of if you lose that Title, but when!

Cena vs Owens at MITB last night.
In Ring Segment
Kevin Owens to the ring, NXT strap over his shoulder. Cole talks up all of Cena's huge injuries.
Owens – John Cena is not here tonight. (solid pop) When you want someone to blame for that, look no further than Cena himself. Now, I'm not denying that I played a part in it, after our match, I did powerbomb him on the edge of the apron. Cena forced me to do that. Because after the match, as we shook hands, Cena said something that was the most disrespectful thing I've heard in my 15 year career. He stood here, said, 'You belong here, in this ring, in front of all these people." I know I belong here, I've known I belong here since I first stepped into a WWE ring. I know, and I don't need you to endorse me in any way, shape, or form.
"Fight Owens Fight!" chants.
Owens – People want to talk about me being a sore loser, how about Cena being a bad winner. After his victory, he could have walked to the back like a gracious winner does. Like I did, when I beat him at Elimination Chamber. He stood here and demanded I shake his hand. That wasn't respect, that was Cena hogging the spotlight, because Cena always has to be the hero. The fact is John Cena disrespected me, and I did what I had to do. Regardless of what happened last night, I still hold a victory over the US Champion, and I want a rematch. But this time, when I win, I want the Title. Now, this is about the time when Cena's music would hit, he'd run down the ramp, slide in, hold up the Title for the Open Challenge, but something tells me he's not doing that tonight. So I will. I'm issuing an Open Challenge right now. Anyone in that locker room who wants a piece of Kevin Owens, let's do it!
Ziggler comes out with Lana in tow. They kiss on the stage. Lana stays on the stage.
Ziggler – Kev, other than kissing Lana, you just made my night. I'm not out here to defend John Cena, but you got a lot of guts standing in that ring talking about sacrifice. You wanna talk about sacrifice? I've scratched and clawed for everything I got in this business. This city has scratched and clawed for a Championship, and I'll be damned if I don't give them one now. You want a challenge for the NXT Title, you're looking at it, brother.
Lilian starts announcing the match, and Owens cuts her off.
Owens – Wait blondie. I said I was issuing an open challenge, I didn't say anything about the Title being on the line. So Ziggler, you wanna go, we'll go. The Title's not on the line.

Divas milling around.
Paige – Ladies, could you gather around? Thank you for coming, short notice. I gathered everyone because we need to take a stand around here. Our careers, our lives, our world has been dominated by the Bellas. They have stopped at nothing to make everything about them. We need to stop that.
Summer Rae – Hold on a second. Is this because you lost, again, to Nikki last night?
Paige – I did lose to Nikki last night, and it sucks, but it's not about that. It's about standing together, because if we don't, then we'll never have our moment.
Fox – Um, how are we supposed to trust you? You've turned on everybody.
Layla – That's true.
Paige – I haven't been the best ally. It isn't about that. It's about us sticking together. They're going to continue to chew us up and spit us out, and why? Because of who they're married to? No. We have a chance to prove ourselves to The Authority, to the people, and to the Bellas that we're just as powerful and strong as them.
Naomi – I cannot stand the Bellas, and I may even agree with you, but you must be crazy if you think I'm gonna let you boss me.
Paige – I'm not trying to boss anyone around. I am crazy. I'm so crazy that I challenged the Bellas to a 2-1 Handicap Match tonight. Yes, if you take on one, you take on both. I don't have to be out there alone. Who's with me?
Nikki – Sorry we're late to the meeting. Excuse us. I'm sorry Paige, were you saying something? From the looks of it, you have everyone hanging on every word of yours. I actually have some words I'd like to share. Ever since I helped Steph McMahon win at SummerSlam last year, (to Brie) no offense Brie.
Brie – It's okay.
Nikki – I've been the Divas Champ, and it's not by accident. It's a free country, so if you want to side with Paige, well, by all means, side with Paige.
Summer Rae leaves. Then Fox, Layla, Rosa, Tamina and Naomi also leave Paige standing alone.
Paige – This isn't over.
Nikki – Funny, because it looks like it is. It's so tiring being the Champ.

Rollins – Kane, Kane, Kane! Congratulations out there. Hard fought victory. You know, it must put you in a better mood than last night, considering you lost and I won without your help. You might not be able to admit it now, of all my doubters, you were my biggest. My success pains you because it reminds you of all you used to be – a Champion, a winner, someone to be feared, things you no longer are.
Kane – Seth, anyone can win one match. If you truly want to be the mat, the future of the WWE, you have to win match after match after match, night after night after night. It takes an entire team behind you to do that. You don't understand that. You're not an architect, you're an idiot. Because no one can do it on their own.
Rollins – I can do it on my own. I did, and will continue to do so. Someone like you wouldn't understand that, because you've always had someone holding your hand. From the Corporation, to the Paul Bearer, to your big, bad brother... whoa!
Kane grabs Rollins by the front of his shirt and pulls him in tight.
Kane – Let me make something clear, no matter who is named your next opponent, don't EVER mention my family again! Or I will eviscerate you, understand me?
Rollins breaks free.
Rollins – Don't you ever put your hands on me, again. I'm the WHC. I hope Trip and Steph name you my next opponent. Look at you, you're a sad excuse for a human being, and you need to be put out of your misery.
Rollins leaves and Kane seethes.

Reigns through the stands to the ring.
Reigns – Last night was not a good night, and I got very little sleep, which makes for a long day, which means I'm pissed off. I'm not waiting until Battleground, I say we throw down, right here in the Cube! (pop) Bray Wyatt, bring your ass out here, right now!
Reigns paces the ring.
DEP! But Wyatt stays backstage.
Wyatt – In the morning two stars will rise. One speaks the truth. The other tells lies
Reigns – Shut your mouth and get out here now!
Wyatt – Hahahahaha! Hello to you too, Roman. What a fiery temper you have. You want answers, but you haven't the capacity to comprehend their meaning. Oh, how quickly we forget (something) ascending that ladder, and grabbing MY destiny! But it was you, Roman, it was you. Two weeks ago, you stole my opportunity. I could have changed things. I could have been that beacon of hope the world so desperately needs. But you, selfishly, denied me. I think it's that ego of yours. That ego that makes you do such crazy things. Come to think of it. You remind me of someone I knew a very, very long time ago. He too was the chosen one. His people believed that this chosen one would lead them to paradise. He was chosen, while the other was cast aside. Now we know, they made the wrong choice. If you don't believe me, all you have to do is look outside your window, you will see that this, all of this is no paradise. In fact, it's quite the opposite, don't ya think. Just like you and I are opposites. I am the yin to your yang. We balance this whole thing out, man. Whether you're willing to admit it or not, we need each other. That's how I knew, I knew last night when I saw you climbing that ladder. I knew the true justice. The justice you once said you fought for, it needed to be sought out. Anyone but you Roman, anyone but you. I will temp you, I will lie to you, I will haunt you, and ultimately, I will destroy you! But not tonight. What kind of example would we be setting, with Father's Day right around the corner. Hahahaha! (Looking at a pic from that commercial Reigns did with his daughter a while back.) I'm a little tea pot, short and stout, here is my handle, here is my spout. Huh. Patience Roman. Our fun is just getting started. RUN!

Kane – Unlike you Dean, I have been WHC.
Ambrose – But that wasn't you you! That's hellfire and brimstone guy Kane, tombstone, yeah! You used to tear people apart in the most sadistic ways possible. That guy. I used to like that guy. That guy was WHC. What you are now is some sort of glorified messenger boy in a suit.
Kane – I am DOO of a global company.
Ambrose – What it says on your business cards and what you actually do are two different things. In the end you are loyal to The Authority, so your heart is not in this. Just a job. Me, this is my life. This is what I live for, laying it on the line, every single night. And, last night, I had the WWE WHC literally in my fingers, I tasted it, and I like it. I will not stop, until I get another taste. I NEED that Title and I will never, ever stop until I get it. That's what I live for. What do you live for?
Ambrose leaves Kane standing there thinking.
Trip and Steph heading for the ring.
Another great Dusty video.
In Ring Segment
Trip and Steph to the ring.
Steph – First of all, I'd like to apologize for the actions of Kevin Owens against MGK. Disciplinary actions will be taken against Kevin Owens, because it's what's best for business. When I say what's best for business, it's not just a catchphrase, it's truly how we run this global property. That's how we put smiles on people's faces the world over. We have the distinction of who the next opponent, who the next challenger will be for the WWE WHC against Seth Rollins, and I guarantee that we have made that decision doing, what's best for business.
Trip – A lot of Superstars feel they deserve a shot at Seth Rollins and the WWE WHC, but I can assure you, it will not be Joey Mercury, it will not be Jamie Noble, it won't be Kane, and I can assure you it will not be Dean Ambrose.
Heat from the fans.
Steph – They didn't like that one. Well, if it's not Ambrose, then who will it be?
Rollins' music hits, and out he comes with a big smile on his face, laughing his way to the ring. Rollins shakes hands with both Trip and Steph, before grabbing a mic.
Rollins – You know guys, it really doesn't matter who you pick for my next opponent, because you've been right about me all along. There is nobody on the roster who is capable of taking this from me. I am every bit as good as you say I am, and better. Whoever you pick as my next opponent, I'm gonna beat them, embarrass them, and make you guys proud.
"We want Lesnar!" chants are forming.
Trip – And you very well might make us proud Seth, the thing is, while a lot of people have doubted, you have proven from WrestleMania when you became WWE WHC. You've proven yourself over and over. You've beaten Roman Reigns, you've beaten Randy Orton, you've beaten Dean Ambrose. Last night at MITB, you did exactly what you said you were going to do, without any help, without any backup whatsoever, you beat Ambrose. You've proven yourself, and you might say you never really needed anybody's help in the first place.
Steph – Some people might say that, you're a very polarizing person, Seth. We are proud of you and your accomplishments, but some people think that without The Authority, you're ripe for the picking. Now, you've also tested our patience a fair amount, therefore, you might have something a little bit left to prove.
"We want Lesnar!" chants.
Trip – Seth, we have invested everything in the future, and in you. Sometimes in life you have to take a step back and look at your investment, and ask if this investment is truly going to pay off, or just suck cost. If you wanna know what you have with a lump of coal, you stick it under immense pressure. Under immense pressure it could crumble and turn to dust, and render it useless, or turn it into the diamond you always hoped it could be. Seth, the question now is, do you crumble, or do you become the diamond we've invested in? Because Seth,the pressure is on.
Off mic Rollins says, looking Trip in the eye, "I'm ready. I'm ready."
Brock Lesnar's music hits, and out he comes with Heyman in tow. Major pyro for Brock, and Rollins looks like he's going to vomit. Brock around the ring, staring at Rollins, Rollins watches him all the way around. Brock jumps up on the apron. Brock and Heyman into the ring. Heyman and Trip shake hands. Heyman with that slimy smile. Steph shakes Heyman's hand with a shrug.
Chants of "Suplex City!" and "Suplex City Bitch!"
All the adults leave the ring, as Brock stares at Rollins. Rollins cannot look Brock in the eye.
Brock steps up at Rollins, smiles and nods his head.
Rollins steps back very slowly, still not meeting Brock's eyes. Brock steps up, Rollins back very slowly, eyes down. Brock up, Rollins back still slowly, eyes averted. Rollins gets to the ropes and slowly leaves the ring to heat.
The Authority watches Rollins leave the ring. Rollins slowly walks around the ring, watching Brock. Rollins backs up the ramp, still looking scared enough to barf. On the stage, Rollins holds his hair back with his hands, eyes wide.
