Seth Rollins’ music interrupts Cena.
Seth is joined by Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble. Seth asks John to do us a favor and shut up. He wants to know how many times in the last ten years has John come out before a huge match and tell us what he is going to do? Seth says that he will give credit where it is due. John is in this spot because he has stepped up. Ninety-nine times out of One Hundred, John has done what he said he would do.
After this Sunday, when he beats John at TLC, there will be a new standard set for the things that Seth says that he is going to do ninety-nine times out of one hundred. John talks about how the future has to go through you. Seth says that the future doesn’t exist without Seth Rollins. All you do is seem to want to talk.
He tells John to spare him. He will spell it out in a way that John can understand. John said it was about stepping up or stepping aside. Your time is up and Seth says that his time is now. At TLC, he doesn’t even have to pin John Cena or make him submit. All he has to do is do what he did the last two weeks and that is put John through a table.
John says to mark this date on your calendar. This is the date that Seth Rollins became a man. He doesn’t see the Shield or Authority around him. He sees a proud, confident Seth Rollins standing on his own two feet, believing he has a chance in this fight. After he beats Seth on Sunday, he will have to wake up and look in the mirror and say that he is not ready.
Don’t get me wrong, you are good, but you will find that you are not ready to stand in the ring on a Sunday night and stand face to face with the guy who runs this place. You have a Tables Match with John Cena and you are going to find out why for more than a decade there hasn’t been a safer bet than John Cena. He will have a purpose and that is to prove that the future is not now, it is not Sunday, and it is not next year. It is because John Cena is here.
Seth says that John just doesn’t get it. You keep talking about the future like it is some distant, far off place. Seth says that he is the embodiment of the future. It is right in front of you. You have been living in it for the two years that he has been in the WWE and blown the doors off this place. It builds to their Tables Match on Sunday.
Seth says that when he puts John through that table on Sunday, he won’t just be beating John. He won’t just be taking away John’s opportunity at another shot at the WWE Championship. This Sunday will mark the beginning of the end for John Cena. This is a paradigm shift. Seth tells John that he will explain what he means.
He tells everyone to stop with the Cena chants. When he beats John on Sunday, everything you worked for goes up in smoke. You start to fade into the background and you become a whisper, a ghost, and a memory. It will be the rise of a new standard bearer in the WWE, Seth Rollins.
John tells Seth that his confidence makes you a fool. He tells Seth that he is good, gifted, and have a bright future in the WWE. If you want to talk like a man, you better act like one. John says that this is his life and if you think for one second that on Sunday you are going to shove him out that door, you can get in line with the ten thousand other people who have said that and ended up eating those words.
From Renee Dupree to Triple H. From Orlando Jordan to the Rock, John has survived because of passion, heart, and the guts to never give up.
John tells Seth to show up on Sunday thinking that John has lost that step. John will take that foot that Seth thought John has lost and he will shove it up Seth’s ass.
