Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring. Seth says it feels good to be out here again. He did not know if he would be able to stand in the ring on his own two feet to talk to you again. He did everything to get ready for Wrestlemania and he could not think about ‘after’ Wrestlemania. Seth says he was in more pain after Wrestlemania than any time before. Physically he was messed up, but emotionally and mentally, he was at peace because he left it all in the ring and he did it. Seth says we did it. They slayed the King of Kings. Seth says he wants to take this opportunity to step back.
Seth says thank you for giving him a second chance and having his back. He says Wrestlemania was not the finish line. They are just getting started on Raw. He says he has some scores against Samoa Joe. He wants to get his hands on the Universal Title. Based on what happened at Wrestlemania, he might not get those opportunities. We see footage from the end of Seth’s match with Triple H at Wrestlemania when Stephanie interfered in the match and got sent through a table. The crowd chants ‘Thank You Seth’. Seth says he does not think he will be named Employee of the Month. He says that Stephanie does not handle failure well. She will come back and she will have to see Seth’s face and it will remind her of her failure and her husband’s defeat. If he is not already public enemy number one, he will probably move up the list. Seth says maybe he should go to Smackdown because that is the easy way out. Deal with Shane instead of Stephanie. Seth says he took the easy way out once before and he won’t do it again. If you want to ship him to Tuesday night, you better get an army because he is not leaving without a fight.
Kurt Angle’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring. Kurt tells Seth he is going to be straight up with him. It’s true, Stephanie made it clear she wants you gone. If they had this discussion two weeks ago before Wrestlemania, you would be gone. At Wrestlemania, he saw something special. Kurt says Seth was the one legged man who won an ass kicking contest. Kurt says he is not here to play politics. His show has Seth Rollins. Kurt says that as long as he is the general manager, Seth has a home on Raw. Kurt leaves the ring and Samoa Joe attacks Rollins. Kurt tries to separate the two men and it is not too successful. Joe with a head butt but Seth with an enzuigiri and super kick.
Backstage: Seth Rollins asks Kurt Angle about Chris Jericho and Kurt says that the match is on, but Chris is not able to continue but, that he will find him a partner by the end of the night.
