WWE World Champion Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring and he is alone. Seth thanks everyone for coming out tonight and he welcomes everyone to Raw. Seth welcomes everyone to Monday Night Rollins. Week in and week out, he is the best thing about Raw and he is your WWE World Champion. Seth says he wants to take a second to acknowledge his opponent from last night, Dean Ambrose. Dean brought the fight to him like never before. He made good on his promise and he brought his A Game. We see photos from last night and Seth says that as good as Dean’s A Game is, it is not quite as good as his. Last night, he made good on his promise. He beat Dean Ambrose all by himself in one of the greatest ladder matches in WWE history and he got back what is rightfully his, the WWE World Championship.
Seth says that he is only one man. It takes an incredible team to make someone like him thrive. When he was clutching the title last night, he was holding back the emotion to remember who got him to the top of the mountain. Seth says he is a first class team player. He wants to take a second to acknowledge all of the people who got him to where he is. He is just a kid from Davenport, Iowa. Seth says he wants to thank everyone who paid a part. Seth pulls out a list. Seth says the crowd is not showing him the proper respect. Seth starts off by thanking . . . Seth Rollins. He also wants to thank Seth Rollins, Seth Rollins, Seth Rollins, and…Seth Rollins. He thanks Seth Rollins a few more times before throwing away his notes. Seth says he would not thank Dumb and Dumber…aka J&J Security. He wouldn’t thank the Devil’s Favorite Dinosaur, Kane. He didn’t even need Triple H and Stephanie. That is how good he is. With his performance last night, he might as well have punched his ticket to the Hall of Fame. Parents will be naming their children after him. Seth tells Cleveland to take a good look because this is what a Championship looks like. Seth says that ‘Johnny Idiotface’ won’t bring you a title. Lebron James won’t be bringing a title back to Cleveland. This is the only championship you should be celebrating. Seth says that he is leaving this piece of crap town and he is taking his title with him. Dean Ambrose’s music plays and he makes his way to the stage.Dean comes towards the ring and they fight on the ramp. Ambrose clotheslines Seth over the top rope to the floor. Rollins kicks Dean in the knee and then Rollins punches Dean and he tries to send Ambrose’s leg into the table, but Dean kicks him away and Dean with an elbow off the table. Seth gets out of the ring and he runs to the back.
Backstage: Seth Rollins enters Hunter and Stephanie’s office and he wants to know what is being done. Hunter says it is being taken care of. Stephanie points out that Seth said he didn’t need their help. Seth denies saying that and Hunter wonders if Seth is calling Stephanie a liar. Seth says he was sticking it to everyone who said he could not do it on his own. Seth says they need to do what is best for business and he wonders what is next for us. Hunter says that they were talking about Seth’s next challenger for the WWE Championship. It could be anyone else, even Dean Ambrose. Seth will find out tonight. Hunter says that they trusted Seth to beat Dean by himself so Seth should trust them to make the decision by themselves.
Backstage: Seth Rollins walks in the back with his title belt and Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble stop by. Seth calls them Harry and Lloyd. He says he hates to be the guy who says ‘I told you so’…but I told you so. He beat Dean by himself because that is how good he is. He is willing to bring them back on board…if you have any inside information on who Hunter and Steph are choosing. Jamie says they don’t know and wouldn’t tell him anyway. Jamie says they should pick the man who pinned the champ last week in the ring, Joey Mercury. Seth says he did not think that Jamie could get any dumber. He says no one wants to see a match between Joey and him. You are trying to get your jobs back. Joey tells Seth that he is afraid of him. Joey says he knows that Seth is afraid to get back into the ring with him. No matter what happens in your career, the record books will say that Seth Rollins lost to J&J Security. You are vulnerable. The question is not ‘if’ you lose the title, it is ‘when’ you lose the title.
Backstage: Kane walks in the back and Seth Rollins stops him. He congratulates Kane on his victory and he says that Kane must be in a better mood than last night since Kane LOST and Seth WON, without Kane’s help. Seth says that Kane might have been one of Seth’s biggest doubters because Seth’s success physically pains Kane about what he used to be, a winner and a champion. Kane says anyone can win one match. If you want to be the future of WWE, you need to win match after match, night after night. It takes an entire team behind you to do it. If you can’t understand that, you aren’t an architect, you are an idiot. No one can do it on their own. Seth says he did and will continue to do so. Kane doesn’t understand since he has always had someone holding his hand. Whether it was the Authority, your brother, or Paul Bearer. Kane tells Seth never to mention his family again or he will eviscerate Seth. Seth tells Kane to never put his hands on him again. Seth says he hopes Stephanie and Triple H name him his next opponent. Seth says he should put Kane out of his misery.
In Ring: Stephanie asks Hunter, who will Seth’s opponent be? Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring. Seth says it does not matter who they pick as his next opponent because they have been right all along. There is no one on the roster who can beat him. Seth says he will beat the person announced as his next opponent. He will embarrass them and make Hunter and Stephanie proud. Hunter says that you have proven since Wrestlemania. You have beaten Roman Reigns, you have beaten Randy Orton, you have beaten Dean Ambrose. Hunter says you have proven your point and you might say you never needed help. Stephanie says that without the Authority, some people think you are ripe for the picking. You have tested their patience.
Hunter says they have invested everything in the future and in you. There are times when you have to take a step back and look at the investment to determine if it is going to pay off or is it a loss. You put a lump of coal under great pressure. It can crumble and turn into dust. Or you can turn it into the diamond you always hoped it would be. Hunter asks Seth will you crumble or turn into the diamond they invested in. The pressure is on. Brock Lesnar’s music plays and he comes out with Paul Heyman. Brock circles the ring and then he does the Brock Bounce and leaps to the apron. Paul shakes Hunter’s hand since people named Paul do not mind shaking hands. Everyone but Brock and Seth leave the ring and they stand face to face. Seth looks like he has seen a ghost while Brock stands there like a statue. Seth leaves the ring and we go to credits.
