In Ring Segment
Trip and The Authority to the ring. Steph in a black dress with nude accents she's worn numerous times on TV and other events. Video of Raw ending last week, Ambrose getting the match he wanted, but then getting beaten down by The Authority, getting the pedigree from Rollins.
Rollins – Before we begin tonight's festivities, let's give a round of applause for Ambrose. Last week he acted like a common thug, extorted and intimidated his way into a match for my WWE WHC.
"You sold out!" chants.
Rollins – No, this is about Ambrose who clearly is a hero and role model to all in the WWE 'Universe' (pop) The thing is...
"We want Ambrose!" chants.
Rollins – The Authority made that under duress as that's not what's best for business. It's what you said last week Steph, Ambrose hasn't earned or deserve a title shot. After what he did last week, you can take it from him. Actually, if you wanted to, Hunter, you could fire Ambrose right now. And you considered it until I asked you not to.
"We want Ambrose!" chants.
Rollins – Thanks you, I'm a benevolent human being. Ambrose isn't really a threat to me. He's not on my level, never was, riding my coat tails in The Shield. No wonder you picked me, right?
Trip – It was an easy decision. But now while we have a verbal arrangement with Ambrose, we will need something more, pardon the pun, concrete. So, Ambrose, if you want your match against Rollins for the WWE WHC at Elimination Chamber, all you have to do is come to the ring and sign this contract.
Ambrose's music, and out he comes with a mic in hand. He stays on the stage.
Ambrose – You may find this hard to believe, but I think there's something wrong with me.
Ambrose – There might be something wrong with me, I can't sleep at night. Instead of counting sheep, I count the punches to Rollins' face. I count the teeth flying out of his mouth. By the time I get to 200 punches, I sleep like a baby. I get this feeling, you might call it happiness. Beating up Seth Rollins makes me happy. I get my jollies kicking the crap out of Rollins for free. But last week I decided that the next time it needs to be for the WWE WHC. And the crazy thing Seth, it's going to happen! All it took was a couple chairs, some cinder blocks and some imagination. I hope the WWE 'Universe' liked it as much as I did. I know The Authority appreciated it because this Sunday, their boy, their golden boy, their golden little baby boy, the Architect, gets replaced by some call a lunatic, but everyone else will call the new face of WWE. When that happens, I want to make some changes around here. First of all, J&J Security will go barefoot, like a couple respectable hobbits. Kane, you cans top wearing that cheap suit, and you can wear a collar, like the obedient little lap dog that you are. Seth, well, you can drunk dial Selena Gomez, because you'll always be our little Justin Bieber.
Rollins – You shut your mouth, Ambrose!
"Justin Bieber!" chants.
Rollins – When are you going to get it, you called me a sellout for so long, as if I wasn't proud of it. Now you call me Justin Bieber like it's an insult. Bieber is rich, famous, has to beat girls off with a stick, or because he's the most successful artist of his generation. You all wish you could be Bieber, just like Ambrose wishes he could be Rollins. The problem with that Deano is that you will never be Seth Rollins, you're just a cockroach. The thing about cockroaches Dean, they're really good at surviving. I've heard it said they could survive a nuclear holocaust, but they never thrive, never win, Dean. You are destined to be a loser your entire life. All you want is to be me Ambrose, and it's a blessing in disguise that you're weaseling your way into a match with me at Elimination Chamber, because I'm sick of chasing you away from the WWE. You have the guts to sign that contract, I will gladly scrap your teeth off the bottom of my boot for the very last time at Elimination Chamber. Come on down, I dare ya!
Ambrose – Well, I'd rather be a cockroach than the wrong end of The Authority's human centipede!
"YES!" "YES!" "YES!"
Ambrose – All I have to do is get in that lion's den and sign that contract. I might be crazy, might be stupid, but it might be worth a shot, but only one way to find out.
Off comes the jacket, down goes the mic, and he heads to the ring, then around it. "Ambrose!" chants the whole way. As he's down there, Reigns' music hits to a really solid pop! He comes out as backup for Ambrose. They bump knuckles, then look into the ring.
Steph – Everywhere I look, you Shield boys are inseparable, you are cute and sweet. Everybody likes it, so nice. Ambrose, you have until the end of the night to sign the contract, but until then, I'm going to make a main event. How about the two of you team up to face the team of Kane and the WWE WHC, Seth Rollins! But the best part is, you don't have to wait until the end of the night, because this match happens right now!

Renee – Congratulations on your win, but you still have to sign the contract for Elimination Chamber.
Ambrose – The Authority has played these games before. By the end of the night, I will have a signed contract.
Noble – Don't worry, we brought that contract to you. Give it to him Joey.
Mercury feels his pockets, but there's nothing.
Noble – Slap my head and call me Sally, my boy Joey forgot it. Looks like you ain't going to get it after all, anyway.
Ambrose – Don't worry about it Sally.
Ambrose slaps Noble, then goes after Mercury, beating on both of them, taking the cameraman down as well, accidentally. Ambrose checks on the cameraman who is holding his face on the floor.

In Ring Segment
Rusev – Lana, please, we need to talk. For Bulgaria, for Mother Russia, we need to talk. (In his native tongue.)
Lana comes out in a black pinstriped suit with white collar and cuffs. He holds the ropes, so she goes in the other side.
Lana – You asked me to come, I came. Now I'm waiting.
Rusev – Lana, I know you care about me, despite your actions that cost my match at WrestleMania. Despite that you misheard me say 'I quit' at WWE Payback. Despite the fact that you kissed this blond, disgusting Dolph Ziggler American, twice! I know, Lana, Lana, I know why you doing all this. You're woman, and like all women, you do these things for me to pay attention.
Lana – Rusev, everything I've done, I've done for you.
Rusev – I know. Lana, I know, I know you care about me, and I know you care about us. I know you want to crush America and the American spirit just as bad as I do. Ever since we met in Bulgaria. All our dreams, we can still make it happen Lana.

Lana – No! You're a liar and a quitter. And you're so cowardly that you cannot take responsibility for your own actions! You do not own me. I belong to no one. I'm not yours and no longer your victim. So you can take your stupid ways and I am not going to listen to your cruel, caveman, brutish thick headed, moronic mouth again!

Trip – Nothing fun about what's about to happen to you.
In walks the cameraman with two suits behind him.
Ambrose – You've got to be kidding me, this guy?
Trip – (to Ambrose) You've done enough already. (to the cameraman) This the guy who assaulted you?

Cameraman (head down) – Yes. Yes.

Steph is smiling, and Trip thanks someone on the other end of the line of his cell phone for the update.
Trip – Ambrose is on his way to central booking. Even if he gets bailed out, there's no way he will get back for the end of the show, which means he won't get that contract signed.
Steph – I can't believe. Rollins just isn't going to have an opponent at Elimination Chamber.
Trip – He deserves a night off. Hey, check these guys out.
In comes the cast of Entourage. Steph talks them up. They thank The Authority for having them, and saying that Hollywood is crazy, but nothing like this. They ask about Ambrose getting arrested.

One of them talks up getting his butt kicked by Rondy Rousey in the cage, and they know what that's like. Trip and Steph aren't impressed by that.

US Title Open Challenge
Cena out to the fans singing with his music. On the stage Cena says to the closest camera, "Apparently the remix is still a popular song!"
Cena to the ring through continuing heat.
Cena – For over ten years now, you, the WWE 'Universe' can be summed up in five words. Let's go Cena, Cena sucks! Simply put, there's those who fight with me (pop), there are those who fight against me. (heat)
Dueling Cena chants, which he waits to develop, even before they'd started.
Cena – For those of you chanting, 'Let's go Cena!' you believe what I believe in, hustle, loyalty, respect. No matter the fight, back against the wall, you never give up! Over the past ten years we've shared together the agony of defeat, and triumph of victory. But, most importantly...
An interesting dueling chant of, "We want Ryder!" and "Woo woo woo?" Cena lets them chant. Later is morphs into a chant of, "Fight, Owens, Fight!"
Cena – Most importantly, over the past ten years we've formed a fraternity, a family, a bond that will not be broken that will allow us to survive most atmosphere, no matter how hostile they may be. So, for those of you chanting, 'Let's go Cena!' I'm saying now that I'm eternally grateful for the years you've given me your unwavering support from the bottom of my heart. And then, of course, there are the others. (heat) Who chant, among other things, 'Cena sucks!' Why? Because for over ten years they have been clamoring for a man to step in this ring that is everything I am not! Knock me down, and keep me down! Here is where the story gets difficult for those chanting, 'Cena sucks!' Because name, after name, after name, hopeful, after hopeful, after hopeful have tried, and have failed. I was rather forcefully introduced to the next hopeful on Raw. (mixed) A man names Kevin Owens. (more mixed) Last Monday Kevin Owens debuted on Raw and left me incapacitated. Then he broke the Internet. Then on NXT TakeOver on the WWE Network, Kevin Owens broke his best friend Sami Zayn in half. And this, this is why those who chant 'Cena sucks!' thinks Kevin Owens is the man to take me down and keep me down. This is why those of you who chant 'Cena sucks!' thinks Kevin Owens is the man to change things that you think need to be changed around here! (almost dead silence) Amazingly enough, it's those who chant 'Cena sucks!' that at Elimination Chamber might not be chanting 'Cena sucks!' (heat) At long last you will be able to chant, 'Fight, Owens, Fight!' (some reaction, but not a lot) Yeah, that's the sound of all of you tuning into Elimination Chamber, where you see things you can't believe your eyes, but for the first time in a decade, you may not believe your ears. Because there may not be a 'Let's go Cena!' 'Cena sucks!' you may hear 'Let's go Cena!' 'Fight, Owens, Fight!' I'm here right now to tell you that 'Fight, Owens, Fight' does not promise win, Owens, win. (heat) last Monday on Raw, Kevin Owens knows how to start a fight, this Sunday at Elimination Chamber, we'll see if Kevin Owens knows how to finish one. But, that of course is Sunday. This is Monday Night Raw. And might I add a mighty raucous crowd at the last WWE ever here! On this very special day, Memorial Day, it gives me great pride to put this US Championship on the line, right here, right now. Because if you look around, Long Island is the place to be, and judging by the hardware, John Cena is the man to beat. The John Cena Open Challenge opens now. You want some? Come get some!

Trip – Yeah, you give these guys the opportunity, they take it.
Rollins – I've known Kevin a long time, and he's awesome, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. I'm still the present and the future of the WWE now, aren't I? Right?
Steph – Of course you are, Seth.
Renee comes in.
Renee – You think we can get an update on the Dean Ambrose situation?
Steph – The Dean Ambrose situation is that he's been given the end of the night to sign his contract in order to have a WWE WHC at Elimination Chamber. And we will abides by our word, at the end of the night we will go to the ring with the contract and Dean will have every opportunity to sign, if he shows up. It does look like Seth Rollins might be without an opponent at Elimination Chamber.
Renee – Isn't that more of a formality, seeing that you had Dean Ambrose arrested earlier tonight?
Rollins – Whoa, whoa, whoa! We? We didn't have Ambrose arrested. Dean Ambrose had himself arrested. He did this to himself. He got what he deserved. He assaulted an employee. You know what they say Renee. You can't do the time, don't do the crime. Hahaha!
They talk about Ambrose's predicament. They show video of the fight and how the cameraman was pushed into Ambrose and how he tried to tend to the guy. Then The Authority forced the cameraman to press charges, and Ambrose was arrested.

(almost no reaction from the fans) Big E then starts ripping on the arena falling down around them, then onto their hockey team who left and will always be losers.
Kane out to the stage.
Kane – I hear your concerns, it's a matter of perspective. You have a one in six chance of winning, like any other team. So it's very fair, unlike your match tonight, because you're facing Cesaro, Kidd and Los Matadores, and, The Ascension, and Prime Time Players, and Lucha Dragons in a 10 on 3 Handicap Match.

In Ring Segment
The Authority to the ring as JBL and Cole yell at each other.
Rollins – What you just saw on some idiot's cell phone means nothing. Ambrose assaulted him and was justifiably arrested earlier tonight. Nothing more than a common thug and takes pride in that ridiculous Lunatic Fringe thing. Recklessness can only get you so far. Paid off for him last week, he almost gets a shot at my Title, this week, behind bars. Hahaha!
Steph – Our crew works tirelessly every week to bring you Raw live, and the deserve respect, but Ambrose doesn't have any respect for them, their hard work, for anyone. That's right Seth, Ambrose struck a WWE employee. He's a father of newborn triplets. It is our job to create a safe environment for all of our employees, and cannot tolerate such hazardous actions from our Superstars. Our goal is to create a kind, nurturing, supportive environment here at WWE. I would like to say more about Ambrose, but our legal counsel has advised us against it as this is still and ongoing investigation.
Trip – Despite Ambrose's unstable lunatic state, we are still willing to give him the opportunity to face Seth Rollins at Elimination Chamber for the WWE WHC, all he had to do was sign a contract. But that same unstable mental state came back to bite him, so he's not here. So we have no choice but to formally announce at the Elimination Chamber, Seth Rollins...
Reigns' music hits, and he comes out of nowhere (the ramp?) and slides in on Rollins. He takes out J&J Security, and then onto Kane. Rollins, and J&J Security on Reigns as Steph yells at them to, "Get him!" Kane gets into the fight. Reigns free, goes after Kane, but takes a chokeslam. Steph claps for the move. Rollins with the contract in hand, right in Reigns' face on the mat. Rollins yells at them to get him up.
A siren plays, in comes the paddy wagon, looks like Ambrose driving. He comes through the back, the way Stone Cold Steve Austin would have. Ambrose rolls out next to the stage, all dressed in a jacket, hat, and badge, two night sticks in hand. Noble, Mercury tossed out. Ambrose on Rollins. Kane grabs Ambrose, but Ambrose out of the ropes takes Kane down. Rollins on Ambrose, Ambrose free. Rollins grabs a night stick, rears back with it, but Reigns takes it from him. From behind Ambrose pushes Rollins into Reigns who uses the stick to Rollins' guts. Then Ambrose does the same. Rollins clotheslined from the ring, so J&J Security and Kane back in. Reigns takes out Kane, then double spear on J&J! Kane tosses Reigns out, but as he's climbing out through the ropes, Reigns with a superman punch. Kane staggers back into the ring, right into dirty deeds!
Steph, Trip and Rollins on stage looking down at Ambrose. Reigns comes into the ring with the contract and Ambrose signs as JBL yells for them to stop the show early. Ambrose up on the ropes yelling smack at Rollins who is yelling smack down from the stage. Reigns is behind Ambrose with his arms crossed, and a smile on his face.
