Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring. Seth says it is time for a reality check. Seth says he is special. He is not regular old special, he is really special. Mega special. Once in a generation or once in a lifetime special. Before him, it was just a pipe dream that someone would have the guts to cash in their money in the bank contract during the main event of Wrestlemania. Before him, every single one of you believed that Brock Lesnar was invincible. Before him, every single person in the WWE Universe was clamoring for someone to come along and knock John Cena off the top of the WWE mountain. That is what he did when he became the first man in history to be the WWE World Heavyweight and United States Champion at the same time. That is greatness. He says that this city is not known for greatness but that is greatness. A statue was crafted in his image. A statue was immortalized due to his greatness. It created so much jealous that a face painted freak like…Seth says that you and I both (in response to the ‘We Want Sting’ chants) because two weeks ago Sting stole his statue. Sting had the audacity to put his filthy little hands on the WWE Championship belt. Sting, be careful what you wish for because at Night of Champions you have the opportunity of a lifetime to validate your entire career . . . to cement your legacy. Seth says he has the power to crush your legacy and that is exactly what he is going to do. He will make sure that Sting never gets his hands on Seth’s WWE Championship ever again.
That is not all. Last week, it became apparent to him at Night of Champions, all titles are on the line. Seth says he has to defend his United States Championship as well. Because of this information, Mr. Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect…Mr. U Can’t See Me invoked his rematch and he will be facing John Cena for the United States title at Night of Champions. Seth says he was a little upset and he searched for a solution and then it hit him like a bolt of lightning. He is Seth Rollins. He is Seth Freaking Rollins. It has been his year and Night of Champions will be his night. On that night two future first ballot Hall of Famers are going after his titles on the same night. He will do to them what he has done to every opportunity put in his path. He will own them. Just like he owned all of you. Just like he owned this ring. He will own Sting. He will own John Cena. He will own his legacy and his generation. If it is the last thing he does, he will get his statue back. The statue was not stolen just from him, it was taken from all of you. You deserve to see it every week. It is proof that he is not the future of the WWE, but that he is The Man. Sting appears on the TitanTron and he tells Seth that your statue doesn’t belong ringside or in some office. It belongs right here . . . with me. Sting tells Seth that he is the man. You’re the man…the man with out a statue. He tells Seth to come and get it. He says he is taking good care of it. Sting dusts the statue and he tells Seth to come and get it.
Sheamus makes his way to the ring and he has the Money in the Bank briefcase with him. Sheamus tells Seth he looks a little agitated. Is it because you are worried about your two matches at Night of Champions. Seth says he is not worried about Sting, John Cena, or you. He says he has a statue to rescue. Sheamus asks Seth how stupid he sounds. Seth asks Sheamus if he realizes how stupid he looks. Sheamus says he does not look stupid. Seth says that Sheamus looks like Ronald McDonald with a bad haircut. Sheamus tells Seth not to bring his family into this. Sheamus says his point is right here (as he holds up the briefcase). Sheamus says he could make his point tonight. He could make his point on Smackdown. He could make his point at Night of Champions. If you miraculously win both your matches, you might have a third…against me.

Seth says they need to prove that this hasn’t gotten into his head and he wants to know if Hunter is here. Seth turns around and sees Hunter. Hunter asks Seth if he doesn’t think Steph can handle this. Seth says he wants them to do this as a family. Hunter says that Seth can handle this because he is the man. Seth says that he can focus on the statue. Hunter says that Sheamus will be facing Randy Orton tonight. He tells Seth maybe not to focus on the statue because he has two matches at Night of Champions. That is why Seth will compete twice tonight to prepare for it. Hunter says the first match will be champion versus champion. Seth Rollins will face Ryback. The second match will be champion versus Challengers. It will be Seth Rollins and The New Day against The Prime Time Players and John Cena. Stephanie tells Seth not to look at her because she was going to tell Seth to go after Sting. Hunter says he likes his plan because Seth gets to go out and show the world that you are Seth Rollins and you are THE MAN.
