Paul introduces himself, but Brock takes the mic and he says that he is ready to fight. He tells Seth Rollins to come to the ring. Brock says that when he shows up it is business time baby. He tells Rollins that you have about ten seconds to get your weasely ass out here. Brock says that when he shows up you are nowhere to be found. Instead of Seth Rollins, Triple H’s music plays and we see what happened last week on Raw. Hunter tells Brock and Paul he gets it. You are upset and he understands why you are upset. Seth embarrassed you last week and curb stomped your head into the ground. That is not a good thing. Brock, the thing is, wouldn’t you have done the same thing if given the opportunity? You did suplex Seth Rollins first.
Maybe it is understandable what Seth Rollins did. Maybe we should all calm down. We can get Brock a nice big juicy steak. He can talk about this with Paul like businessmen. Paul says that they have been rational. Brock asks Hunter if he is here to fix this or is he here to fight? Stephanie McMahon’s music plays and she wants everyone to calm down. She is joined by Kane and the Big Show. She tells Brock to think about this. Stephanie says something to Paul but Paul says he is trying to fix this and they are being reasonable. Stephanie says that she is not trying to make Brock defensive.
Seth appears on the TitanTron and he says Brock’s name a few times. He says that Brock is always two steps behind. You want to call him out and get your hands on him. He tells the caveman to be patient. He will get his shot at him, right before he takes Brock’s title at the Royal Rumble. Paul tells Seth this will be between the adults. He wants Hunter to put a leash on the puppy before he fixes this himself. If you fix this, Brock can be happy, but if Brock fixes this you will have a depleted roster. Whoever fixes this, at the end of the Title Match at the Royal Rumble, you will hear ‘The Winner… and STILL Undisputed…John Cena does not let us hear what Paul is going to say and he makes his way to the ring in a new shirt. John tells Paul not to spoil everything and he tells Seth to shut up. The contract has been signed and on Sunday, we are going to settle it. He came out here to talk to the Authority. A long way back, the Authority asked him to join them and he said Hell No. Then they concocted this great plan to get rid of John Cena. That is why Brock is here and that is why they say bad things about him and put his back against the wall to make him quit. John tells them to keep it up because everything you say lights a fire under him. He will never give up. He will knock the teeth out of your mercenary and protégé.
John says you don’t have any fire. You use your false sense of security. You use politics to get three men fired. John will do what it takes to get them back. John says Triple H and Stephanie aren’t the Authority, they are the World’s Biggest Ashholes. Stephanie stops John’s music and she wants him to come back. Stephanie wants to savor this moment because it is the turning point in his career. John used to overcome the odds and would win at the end of the day. That is what John used to be, but it is not what he is today. John lied to every one of you by bringing the Authority back. You can talk about not liking us and make your corny jokes. They are here because of you. You use the word fire, but you are single handedly responsible for those three men to get fired and lose their livelihoods. It is all on you John. No one wants to cheer you or see you win at the Royal Rumble. You aren’t the man you used to be.
Seth calls John a loser and he says no one wants to cheer a loser and a failure. Last week John failed to get his friends their jobs back. This Sunday, John will fail again. Everyone knows John is a failure except for John. If there is one thing that Brock and he can agree on is that John needs to step away and take himself out of the match at the Royal Rumble and tuck his tail between his legs. John points out Seth’s mistake and he says that he should go find the room that Seth is in. It is not about the money or the power, it is about respect. When he beats Seth Rollins and Brock Lesnar, you don’t have to like him, but you better respect John Cena. John says that when he wins at the Royal Rumble, The Authority gives Ryback, Rowan, and Ziggler their jobs back.
Backstage: Seth Rollins walks in the back with Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble and Brock Lesnar stops him. He says that he is not going to hurt Seth . . . tonight. He says that he hopes Seth takes care of John tonight. Then on Sunday, he will be paid to take Seth out, and he will take Seth out.
