Paul says he is not a fighter, he is an advocate. He is not out here to advocate on behalf of his client, the reigning and Undisputed WWE Champion of the World . . . BROCK LESNAR.
He is here to advocate his own position. Paul says he wants to address the Seth Rollins situation. A man who had a chance to be a true Paul Heyman guy for taking John Cena out of the title equation and the number one contendership. Seth Rollins failed in his task tonight. He says that he cannot wait . . .
Seth Rollins’ music plays and he comes out with Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble.
Seth says that Paul said he couldn’t wait to see Seth Rollins later tonight . . .

Paul says that he is not a fighter or a sports entertainer, he is an advocate. He wants to take a step back.
Seth points out that Paul Heyman was at ringside to watch the Tables Match. You saw him put John Cena through a table. He saw a WWE official raise his hand in victory. Once again you saw that victory get taken away from him. Seth says that his victory at Survivor Series was taken away by one man, Vigilante Sting.
Seth says he had Cena right where he wanted him, but then there is Roman Reigns. John Cena cannot beat him on his own. John needs help to beat him because Seth is that good. Seth says that he has had enough of John Cena. John can talk about Hustle, Loyalty and Respect, but John Cena is a coward.
John knows that he cannot beat him without help. If John is half the man he is, John will accept the challenge he is going to lay down. He wants to challenge John to a rematch . . . not tonight. Seth says he went through hell last night. When he is good and ready, he wants to face . . .
Speaking of John Cena, he makes his way to the ring.
John tells Seth to go into the corner to play with the kids because the grown men are in the ring. Just because you put a microphone in your hands, it doesn’t mean you have testicles in your pants. We had a match last night, but you lost. You are here whining and complaining and making excuses. That means you haven’t learned how to be a man. A man doesn’t whine and complain over a defeat. A man dusts himself off and continues to fight.
Even if that fight is with a beast (as John looks at Paul). It is official that at the Royal Rumble he will face Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship. That is sure as hell going to be one fight.
John says that he still showed up tonight looking for a fight. He heard through Seth’s crap about a rematch. John says that was one of the really nice things that Seth said because John says that he was feeling the same way. John says that Seth said he couldn’t win without help. Tonight, he needs help because he cannot make matches. He needs someone who can make matches on tonight’s Raw.
John spies Chris Jericho still in the ring and he welcomes Chris back to Raw. Chris says that he has the power to make matches tonight on Raw.
Chris says that if we want John Cena versus Seth Rollins on Raw, you have it. Chris suggests that maybe this match take place inside a steel cage.
What a coincidence because there is a steel cage above the ring.
Seth is furious at what Chris did and he calls Chris the worst general manager of all time. He is worse than that computer or Daniel Bryan. Seth says that Chris is jealous of him. He says that Chris is rusty because he is on tour. Chris doesn’t know the hell that Seth went through last night.
Seth says that Chris couldn’t even beat the janitor. He couldn’t beat the popcorn salesman. You couldn’t even beat Paul Heyman.
Chris tells Seth to calm down. He says the popcorn guy is a ninja. He says that he thinks he could beat Paul Heyman.
Seth says that he doesn’t think Chris can beat him. Chris disagrees. Seth says Paul isn’t a fighter. Chris asks everyone if he is the only one who thinks he can beat Paul Heyman.
Paul tells Chris he thinks Chris can beat Paul Heyman.
Chris says that in addition to the cage match between Seth Rollins and John Cena, we will have Paul Heyman versus Chris Jericho. Chris wants people to choose the type of match for tonight. He says that after tonight, Heyman will never . . . eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeever be the same agayne.
Backstage: Seth says that he wants to say that this is getting ridiculous. A short 24 hours after his hellacious match at TLC against John Cena and he is expected to be in a steel cage with the man who cost him two of the biggest matches of his career. It happened because this place is a madhouse. This place is unsafe. He says that he is safe because of J&J.
Seth reminds us of what happened to Chris Jericho. Chris may have run his mouth and may have deserved that, but that is not the point. We need the guidance and control of The Authority. We need them back in power. A normal man would not be standing here, but Seth says that he is no normal human being. He will go out and finish what he started at TLC. He will teach John Cena a lesson he will not soon forget.
