Seth reminds us of him shocking the world by beating Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns to win the title. Renee brings up Kane saying the Wrestlemania moment was only due to Kane.
Seth says that makes Kane sound desperate. He is irrelevant. Kane is trying to preserve his job by making this match at Payback. Kane is jealous of him. Seth says he has something that Kane will never have. Seth says his brain has gotten him where he is and he has a plan. Seth says he is the man. He says the Future is Now.
The official contract signing carpet is in the ring to support the official contract signing table and chairs.
Kane is in the ring and he says it is his job that your voices are heard. You said you wanted to see Seth Rollins defend his title not against one or two people, but three. The match will be sanctioned when all four men sign on the dotted line. Kane says let’s make this official.
Kane brings out Randy Orton and he is dressed to wrestle. Roman Reigns comes toh te ring next and he makes his way through the crowd. Dean Ambrose is the third man to make his way to the ring for this contract signing.
The final man to come out for the contract signing is Seth Rollins and he is joined by Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury, but he decides to stay on the stage instead of getting into the ring with three men who just don’t like him.
Kane says in ten days, these four superstars.
Dean says that Justin Bieber might be a VIP in Canada, but does that mean he doesn’t have to get in the ring? He tells Biebs to bring Frodo and Bilbo to the ring with him.
Seth tells Dean he has a sharp tongue. His humor was never his style, but it was better than hearing Roman trying to form sentences. He is not coming to the ring, so if you three have any issues to work out, go ahead.
Roman says he has a sentence for Seth. Once he signs the contract, he is going to go kick Seth’s ass.
Randy tells Seth they are here for the same reason. They want the title around his waist.
Roman signs the contract and then Randy signs it.
Dean tells Seth to come down here to sign the contract or he will drag his ass to the ring to sign the contract.
Seth says that Kane has the authority to sign his name on the contract so that is what is going to happen.
Kane tells Seth that is correct . . . in theory. Kane is trying to remember what Seth said earlier tonight. Did you say that I am obsolete or irrelevant? If you were physically unable to attend the contract signing and he could sign as your proxy. Since you are standing in front of him and in perfect health, you should come to the ring to sign the contract yourself.
Seth makes his way to the ring with Joey and Jamie. Seth tells Joey to get the contract for him to sign. Joey gives the contract to Seth and Seth says he needs to review the contract. He says that everyone is accounted for. We have Dean Ambrose, or low rent Roddy Piper. Seth says that is what Roman called Dean when you were trying to entertain the idiots. Roman Reigns. That is good because he is better at signing autographs than wrestle. Dean used to say that Roman couldn’t wrestle his way out of a wet paper bag.
Then you have Randy Orton. It is no secret how Dean and Roman thought about you. They called you spoiled and entitled. Roman said that you never had to work a day in your life. Dean said the only reason you were in the WWE was because of your old man. What is wrong with a little honesty.
Seth enters the ring with Joey and Jamie and he signs the contract and then he gives the contract to Mr. Obsolete.
Kane tells Seth it is because of Mr. Obsolete that you are champion. Seth disagrees and he says it is because of him that he is champion and Kane had nothing to do with it.
Dean rearranges the furniture in the ring while Seth and Mr. Obsolete argue. Dean puts the table in the corner and then Kane and Seth stop arguing.
Dean says we all know how this is going to end so he calls dibs on the table. Dean kicks Joey and throws him onto the table, but the table does not break. Everyone goes after Ambrose and then things break down. Orton sends Rollins over the top rope to the floor while Reigns and Kane battle at the announce table.

[spoiler] Smackdown closes with the contract signing between Dean Ambrose, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. Kane made his entrance first, summarizing what lead to the contract signing, and introducing each participant. Seth waited on the stage, while the babyfaces took turns making fun of him. Seth refused to come to the ring, saying that Kane had the authority to sign for him. Kane said that he wouldn’t do that, since Seth was in perfectly good health and could sign it himself. Seth tried to turn the babyfaces against each other bringing up all their history with one another before eventually signing. As soon as the contract was signed, Ambrose propped the table in the corner and said, “We all know how this is going to end anyways, I call dibs on the table” before the obligatory brawl broke out. The brawl ended with Rollins standing over everyone with the belt.[/spoiler]

Kane reminds Seth he hit him twice. Seth says that was an accident. He says it is Kane’s fault that he is in a match against Randy Orton and Roman Reigns.
Kane says that if Seth says he is a fighting champion, he should have no problem facing both men. Seth says that he will beat both men, like he has beaten everyone else. Kane is his problem because as Director of Operations, he should be doing what is best for Seth. Kane suggests what is better for business than giving the audience exactly what they wanted.
Seth says the truth is that Kane is jealous of him. Jealous because Seth is everything Kane never could be. Kane sits idly by while Seth rises and Kane just fades away. Kane says that part of his job is to see that Seth grows as a person and champion. He will make a man out of Seth if it is the last thing he does. Tonight, Seth will face the man he was supposed to face last week, Dean Ambrose. That is why he will be facing Dean tonight.
Seth says that Kane from 20 years ago is what is best for business. He dares Kane to prove that he has any viability for the Authority.
