Eden Stiles introduced Seth Rollins in the ring, and he headed out with Stooges 2.0 in tow. Rollins grinned and said he was feeling good tonight. He asked the crowd if they saw the look on Cena’s face at the end of Raw, and put up a photo on the tron so they could look at it again. Rollins said he manipulated Cena into doing something that he said he would never do again, and that was bring back The Authority. Rollins said The Authority being back in power is on his head, and so are the careers of Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan, and Ryback. Rollins said everyone owes John a debt of gratitude, because happy days are here again, and he’s in the Main Event at the Royal Rumble. Rollins then said the Authority aren’t being vindictive, because their actions are justified. But, just because he’s a nice guy, he wants 10 seconds of silence for the lackluster careers of Rowan, Ryback, and Ziggler. As the bell played a salute, Roman Reigns’ music hit and he walked through the crowd to the ring.
Rollins said it was good to see you again, BROTHER. Reigns said he was sorry, but not sorry to interrupt. He called Rollins full of himself, and also full of something else. Reigns then called him a son of suffering suckatash, and said his brain was donkey dung. Rollins demanded to know why he was really out there, and Reigns said he was there to kick his ass. He then cleared the heels from the ring and they scampered up the ramp. They gathered on the ramp, and Kane and Big Show joined them. Kane had a mic and said that it would be Big Show and Rollins vs Reigns later in the show. Kane said Reigns could try and find a partner, but they would be running afoul of the Authority. Big Show grabbed a mic and said that his Superman Punch has nothing on his KO Punch. Show said he would knockout Reigns and his partner, and he’d knockout anyone else who wanted to try him. Show said Reigns had awoken a tiger, and that he was screwed.
Big Show and Seth Rollins were already in the ring. Kane and the Stooges were at ringside. Roman Reigns made his entrance. The announce team asked again who would be nuts enough to be his partner, make sure to give everyone a nudge and a wink a second time. Dean Ambrose then made his entrance as a surprise, and the faces cleared the heel form the ring as the crowd finally woke up.
