Recap of the growing questions between Rollins and Orton heading into last week's main event. Orton to the ring and helps Rollins get the win.
In Ring Segment
Orton to the ring. The Authority is already in the ring.
Kane – Randy, we could have done this behind closed doors, but we wanted to do it in public to prove to everyone who refuses to believe you're one of us, to reveal their ignorance. It's my duty to welcome you back into The Authority.
Big Show – You and I go back a long time.
Heat stops Big Show's speech.
Big Show – See, it's ignorant people like you who make me mad when I'm making a point. I apologize for their rudeness. When I look at you I see the most talented, sadistic, aggressive athlete I've seen. You'd RKO your own father if he stood in your way. I told them what you're about, I know you. Welcome home bro, welcome back to where you belong.
Noble – As a member of The Authority. (serious heat) I'm proud... I can't do this Seth, he's a no good snake...
Rollins grabs the mic from Noble.
Rollins – Hey, wait, you will have to excuse Jamie, he's always been the sensitive one. (baby voice) Right little Jamie, your little feelings were hurt when big bad Randy gave you the RKO? Look, Jamie, I assure you is 100% thrilled to have you back in The Authority, just Like Joey, right Joey?
Mercury takes the mic, looks, rolls his eyes, then hands the mic back to Rollins, saying, "No," off mic. Mercury then simply gives an iconic thumbs up with one hand, as he's holding the case with the other hand and leaning on the top rope with that elbow.
Rollins – They're J&J Security not J&J Public Speaking. Let's all address the elephant in the room, because we've all been hearing the same thing since you came back. Everyone in the 'Universe' has said the same thing, Orton isn't part of The Authority. Orton is just biding his time to get his revenge on Rollins. (to the fans) Oh yeah, you guys must feel like the biggest idiots on planet earth right now, don'tcha? Not because you live in Pittsburgh, but because Orton and I are side by side in the same ring, proud members of The Authority.
Rollins – Look, they weren't alone, even myself. I'll admit that. J&J Security had doubt. Kane had some doubt. Big Show, well, no one really cares what Big Show thinks. Hey, hey, takeit easy big guy. Why is everyone stressed? Take it easy. We're all back together, one big happy family. So I'd like to extend my hand and welcome home Orton.
Rollins and Orton shake hands.
Rollins – Now, if you would please, stand up and pay respect to one of the most decorated Superstars in the WWE and my partner tonight, Randy Orton.
Orton – That was very touching. Those words were kind and I felt it in my heart, but it left me thinking something. What the hell happened to The Authority? You guys listening to yourself kiss my ass? Kane, you were the Devil's Favorite Demon, but right now the Devil's Favorite Dumbass? Which is it Kane? Kicking ass and taking names? Or kissing ass and making coffee? What are you looking at Big Show? You should be the most dominant giant in the WWE, but you use all that size, strength and power to bitch and moan and feel sorry for yourself. From the most dominant Superstar in history to the most pathetic. Jamie, you speak from your gut, tell it like it is. Why do you despise me so? Is it because everybody knows who I am? Or, wait a minute, is it because I can get on all the rides at Disney and you can't? It's okay buddy, my six year old daughter feels the same way. And you... (to Mercury) Which brings me to Mr. Seth Rollins. The Architect, Mr. MITB, the self-proclaimed Future of the WWE, you have been blinded by your ego that you can't even see what's happening here. Weeks I've been getting close to your family, biding my time, and you feel safe and secure, and only then will I pick my opportunity to strike. When I strike Seth, I won't just beat you, I won't just beat you down, I plan on making you my bitch! You're going to feel every stomp, every kick, every punch as I take you apart piece by piece until there is no future for Seth Rollins left.
Orton – Come on guys, I'm just playing around! I'm screwing with you! Lighten the hell up! Come on! I'm messing around guys.
Rollins – The Viper strikes again. You had me so good! Maybe you should be taking over for Jon Stewart. You think we're having fun now, wait until you see us in the main event when we derail Reigns on his Road to WrestleMania. Bring it in, because that is what's best for business!
They're all milling in the ring, none of them quite sure of Orton, but that's to be expected.

Exclusive look at Jericho's newest DVD after Raw. The DVD will be released tomorrow.
In Ring Segment
Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and all day long they have been trying to get me to preview this video, but instead I'm out here live to watch it with you.
It's a Reigns video, looking at his journey, with interview clips looking at him from NXT to The Shield to now. They look into his family and how Rock told him to remember the family, and how he needs to raise that bar. He's all for opinions, but people need to respect his opinion as well. Reigns says WrestleMania is the biggest moment of his life. Sometimes you can build a mystique and everyone's bought into it. He's backed it up, but he can be beaten. He's been told he can't win, but says he can, and will. Believe that.
Heyman – Huh, okay. So Reigns makes some interesting points, to which I shall retort, here comes the pain. The reigning, defending, undisputed WWE WHC Brock Lesnar!
Brock's music hits and out he comes, strap around his waist, pyro goes off. Down to the ring, slides the strap in, then jumps up on the apron. Into the ring, the strap over his shoulder.
The fans are not impressed.
Heyman – I understand what a fan pleasing video, but to my client, it was nothing more than propaganda. If it came out of the tail end of a bull, it wouldn't smell any different. Oh, Reigns was the standout in NXT, went on to be the bad ass of The Shield where he was a standout. Then, he went on to win the Royal Rumble to be the #1 contender, and defended his opportunity at Fast Lane – yay! I've known that family since I was 14, so let me tell you the truth about Reigns. WWE likes to live through fantasy, and that was pure fantasy. The truth that when Reigns was nine, barely more than a savage himself, used to take Reigns and his savage cousins, point out the football players and say, one man left standing, don't come home for dinner tonight. Reigns' uncle would take him to the beach with his other criminal cousins and point out the muscle heads and say, one left standing, don't come home tonight. Take them out with a punch, a tackle, the two moves you see him do today. The same at WrestleMania, beat Brock Lesnar for the Title or don't call yourself a member of this family. Profound motivation for any young man, let alone the baddest member of the family, except one problem, Reigns won't beat Brock Lesnar for the Title at WrestleMania. Brock Lesnar won't lose the Title to you at WrestleMania. Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean the whole world's not against us. I know what goes on behind the scenes, so if The Authority wants to get the strap away from Brock and on Reigns so Rollins can cash in his MITB contract, and isn't man enough to cash it in on Brock Lesnar, and that's smart, because Rollins will be cheaper as Champion than Brock. If anyone has it in their heads to pull a Montreal Screw-Job on Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, my client assures me that anyone involved in a Montreal scenario will not leave that arena alive! See, while Reigns is coming into WrestleMania with the mindset that he wants to stay a part of his family, he has to bite Brock's face off? Brock can get his face stitched up, but the sheer beating Brock will give to Reigns will make all of respect Reigns. Reigns down the street, after the beating he takes from Brock Lesnar. You'll say that's one bad ass Samona, he took a beating like I've never seen. When Reigns...
Heyman's mic cuts out again this week. Heyman looks really annoyed.
Heyman – You know what I really like the about this? I like that Oz behind the curtain, or in the production truck likes to shut off my mic, instead of coming to the ring and taking it out of my hand. Instead of someone in the position of authority around here comes down here and takes that Title away from Brock Lesnar. And if you'd like to take the Title away from Brock Lesnar, go ahead, grab a leg, take your best shot. Because if Brock Lesnar wants to spend his summer unifying the WWE and the UFC Title, that's what he's gonna do! (a bit of a pop) Censor this one, if Brock Lesnar decides to go to Vegas and slap around Mayweather and Pacquiao...By the way, you know if you combine those two, they're still ten pounds shy of you?
Brock smiles, chuckling to himself.
Heyman – That what Brock Lesnar is going to do. Here's a message for everyone who keeps shutting off my damn mic. This Title, no longer belongs to the WWE, this Title belongs to Brock Lesnar! It's his! And he's not giving it back! In 2002 they took a rookie and put him in the ring with The Rock, because they thought they'd make headline with Rock beating a former NCAA Champion, and that rookie sent Dwayne Johnson off to Hollywood. In 2014 they took this accomplished athlete – the first to hold the NCAA Division 1 Heavyweight Championship, the UFC Title and the WWE Title – sent him to Taker at WrestleMania, thinking he'd be the 0 in 22-0, and he didn't just kill the Streak, her damn near killed Taker, now Wyatt has to resurrect him. At SummerSlam, one Beast suplexed Cena out of the main event at WrestleMania. Here's my question, all the same answer, who did that to them all, and what do you think he will do to Reigns at WrestleMania? The answer to these questions is this – Brock Lesnar, Brock Lesnar, Brock Lesnar, Brock Lesnar, Brock Lesnar, Brock Lesnar, the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE WHC, the Beast, the Conqueror, and the one who will leave Reigns on his back at WrestleMania, Brock Lesnar!
Brock rolls his eyes up to look at the WrestleMania sign. Cole talks about the intensity in Brock's eyes as he looks at the sign.
Wyatt – WrestleMania is almost here. The reaper awaits you Deadman. Where are you tonight? Find me.
Wyatt is standing behind Taker's urn.

Video recap of the high points of the match. Big Show into the ring to Kane. Kane on his knees, holding his head. Kane to his feet, yelling at Big Show over this. They argue quite a bit in the ring, but Steph's music hits. She comes out to the stage in a Heather grey sleeveless shift dress with a subdued ruffle on the V-neck which didn't add any bulk to her already impressive chest, and knee high black boots. She looks pissed. Steph starts on mic on the stage, yelling at them on mic her whole way to the ring and in.
Steph – Hey! Big Show, Kane, turn around right now. What's wrong with the two of you? Why can't you behave like professionals instead of arguing like children? Shut up Big Show! We are three weeks from WrestleMania and you're going to behave like this? Don't you understand that you represent The Authority? That means you represent me and Trip, and WWE. You know what, maybe Orton was right. You're listening now? Maybe Orton was right. Maybe you're too busy whining and kvetching. And maybe you're too busy getting coffee. Orton may have been kidding, but I'm not. I don't know what happened to the monster and the giant, but I want them back. You know what, just get out of my ring. Get out of my ring. I said, get out of my ring!
They both leave the ring. Kane over to Steph and says something.
Steph – Oh, you can work this out yourselves? Yeah. You can do that. How about the two of you pack up your stuff and leave the arena. It's time you think about the bigger picture and what's best for business, and the role you play. And, until you can. Do I make myself clear?
Big Show (off mic) – Yes ma'am.
The two of them head up the ramp ashamed. Steph stomps up and out after them.
Cole talks about Miz's commercial last week on Raw. They run the segment and the commercial, followed by Miz slapping Mizdow. Mizdow kept his temper.
Miz – My background is in musical theater. I can see it, WWE's A-Lister, and hip hop's multi platinum recording artist working together on an album. Think about it, think about the name. The Miz and Wiz!
Wiz – I like that, and I like you. I seen what you did, that ad thing. I don't think our brands work together. And, I already ran into another WWE A-Lister, he signed in and everything.
Mizdow with fake loks, shades, trucker cap and hoodie. He also has cartoon talk bubbles as fake tattoos on his neck.
Mizdow – What's up?
Wiz – Give him something.
Mizdow – Coming straight to you from the 412, spitting direct and correct, all factual and true. Me and my crew, we on track, coming at you like a train, Miz, relax your brain. We still close like kin, but when it come to the Andre The Giant Battle Royal, yo cuz, I'm in.
Miz wants to say something, but can't think of anything and stomps off. Wiz and Mizdow celebrate that.

After he's done, Mizdow comes out to celebrate with him. #Wizdow is trending.

Rusev and Lana head for the ring, but there's Cena.
Rusev – What do you want? If you want another rematch, your answer is no.
Cena – I know what your answer is and I don't give a damn, I was listening last week. I know that performing at WrestleMania is not a right, it's a privilege. If I haven't earned it this year, then so be it. But you should listen close, because it seems you're too stupid to understand the same thing! You have had the privilege to come to this country and provide for your family, chase the American dream. You want to be proud of where you're from? Be proud of where you're from, he a hero of the Russian Federation. But get this straight, that does not give you the right to go down to that ring and degrade the very country that's given you the opportunity and expect your actions not to have repercussions.
Rusev – Is that so?
Cena – 100%! You have the right to free speech, but around here I have the right to shut your mouth! You think America's week? You think America has no fight? Why don't you go down there tonight and say one word about the USA, and we don't need a match at WrestleMania, pal, I will prove to you how much fight America has.

Rusev finally releases the accolade, and the flag unfurls. Rusev and Lana celebrate in the ring together, Lana calming Rusev, telling him not to do this.
Rusev – You see this America? You see this? This represent each and every one of you. Because he's pathetic. He's delusional. He thinks he's a man from the past who is no more. Back in the read Hulkamania days, America was strong, but all you do now is live in the past! ("What?") (Speaks his native language off mic.) ("What?") You Americans, all you want to do is negotiate. You are spineless. If you had a spine, it would be made of Jell-O. If you had a heart, it would be full of disease! America, if you had a soul, then God would look down and spit on it. ("What?")

Lana – John, okay! John, okay! Please let him go! Please, John, I beg you, let him go! Okay, we will give you a match! Okay, we'll give you a match at WrestleMania. Okay, we'll give you a US Title Match at WrestleMania!
Cena lets go and looks at Lana. Cena smirks at Lana, then stands up. Cena has that lowered eyebrows, semi-evil look he got on his face last week when working against Axel. A small "Cena!"chant erupts, and it sounds male. Cena from the ring, keeping that pissy look and smile. On the stage Cena salutes. He's not goody-goody Cena, but he's not full on semi-evil Cena either.
The camera on Taker's urn. Wyatt is standing behind it. The camera pulls back to show Wyatt's face.
Wyatt – I would walk through the fires of hell just to see you. But I can't wait much longer. Tonight I raise the dead. Find me!

Video recap of the opening segment of Raw.
Noble talking smack about Orton.
Rollins – Come on! You two need to remember, you work for me! Alright. I know exactly what I'm doing. Have I ever, ever steered you guys in the wrong direction? No, absolutely not. I know when people are trustworthy and when people are liars. Orton is one of us guys. 100%, I guarantee it. He likes to kid around, don't we all? And, maybe there was a bit of truth to what he said out there to Big Show and Kane, but you really think Orton is so stupid that he would get up in my face and tell me the plan he was going to enact tonight, or anytime in the future? That's crazy, doesn't even make sense Jamie.
Noble – We just have a bad feeling boss.
Rollins – You two have a bad feeling about this. Well, let me ask you this. Were either of you the person who masterminded the destruction of The Shield? Or, come up with the plan to bring back The Authority? Was that either of you guys? Huh?
Noble – No.
Rollins (baby voice) – Well, who was it Jamie?
Noble – It was you Boss, the Architect.
Rollins – That's right. I am the Architect, and here is the blueprint for tonight. Stop worrying about Randy Orton. You saw what happened last week. He's family. You gotta start focusing on Reigns, because tonight, he gets what he deserves. Trust me guys. I got this. Trust me.
Rollins leaves, but Noble and Mercury don't look convinced.
In Ring Segment
Wyatt to the ring through his fireflies. He puts the urn carefully on a table covered in puerple crushed velvet cloth in the center of the ring.
Wyatt – I never sleep, but I'm always dreaming. In the darkness of these dreams, I start to see things. I see the world not for what it is, but for what it should be. I see a world laid barren to the virus that infects it. I see cities burning. I see governments crumbling. All these beautiful creations laid to ruin. Hahaha! There's such beauty in chaos, is there not. In these dreams, it is the buzzard that guide me. I can see them circling off in the distance, and I follow them, and when I finally reach them, I am astonished by what it is that I see. For below the buzzards is the shell of a man. Below the buzzards lay the mighty Undertaker. Hahaha! Don't you see Deadman, can't you see it was always about you. Can't you see it was always about you Deadman! Pride has always been my favorite sin, for it was pride that cast me down to walk amongst you. It was pride that led me straight to you. Understand Undertaker, I will not worship you. I don't even want to stand by your side! I want to walk over your broken bones as I ascend to my throne! Because I am not your redemption. I cannot be your redemption Undertaker, because I am the new face of fear!
A small but solid pop from the fans as Wyatt takes a small pause in his speech.
Wyatt – Fear, that's right. You know fear because they all used to fear you. This was preordained. I was chosen! You always knew that you were gonna, that the Streak was going to end, and that you thought you'd be carried off on your shield. But that ain't what happened, was it? Instead the cruel hands of fate stole your destiny, but understand, I can give it all back to you Undertaker! For WrestleMania will be your resurrection, and it will also be your requiem. Your final resting place. So what say you Undertaker? Will you answer me? Will you accept my challenge?
Wyatt drops to his knees in the ring.
Wyatt – Come on Undertaker! Come out, come out, wherever you are.
Wyatt back to his feet.
Wyatt – Where are you? Ah, we play this game again. Or is it this? Is this how we do it? Is this how I bring you back? All of your power locked inside a jar. Hahahaha! But can this urn bring back the dead?
Wyatt takes the urn, removes the top, then looks into it. At first he looks scared, then laughs. Wyatt returns the urn to the purple covered table.
Wyatt – Surprise, surprise everyone, it is empty! It is empty and shallow and hollow just like...
From the urn in the center of table, smoke starts billowing and Wyatt's words are cut off. On the tron there's lightening! Lights flicker above Wyatt.
Wyatt (off mic) – Bring it to me! Come on! Come on! Where are you? Where are you?
Lights go out!
The lights come up and the table with the urn is gone, instead there's a spotlight on Wyatt's old chair and he's freaking out.
On the tron says WrestleMania, The Man Comes Around.
Taker's voice bellows - You will rest in peace!
Lightening strikes the chair. Wyatt laughs hysterically as his chair burns in the center of the ring. Wyatt can barely hold himself on his knees as he laughs.
Taker's music plays. Wyatt watches the tron, the fire, then throws his head back to the sky.
