Raw begins as is tradition with someone talking and this week it is Triple H and Stephanie McMahon (who is no longer billed as one of the principal owners of WWE).
We see photos from the main event of last night’s Hell in a Cell pay per view and then the biblical attack by the Wyatt Family on the Undertaker.
Stephanie says that we saw battles of mythic proportions at Hell in a Cell.
Hunter says that from the get go with the triumphant return of Alberto Del Rio to defeat John Cena to become the new United States Champion. Last night was the emergence of the next generation of WWE Superstars.
Stephanie says the man leading the next generation had the biggest win of the night against Kane. He is the man . . . Seth Rollins.
Seth comes out and we see photos of the match between Kane and Seth Rollins from last night.
Stephanie points out Seth has been WWE Champion for a long time, he has changed the course of WWE History.
Hunter says he has not made it easy with the people who have been put in front of him.
Stephanie says you are still champion. Hunter says you proved them right.
Stephanie says their reputations were on the line when they picked him from The Shield to lead the superstars and Divas. This is just like her husband, Triple H, has done through the years.
Hunter says that Seth won and stood by his beliefs and by winning, Kane is no longer Director of Authority. You have made the WWE better. Hunter says they are proud of Seth, and Stephanie agrees.
Seth hugs Hunter and Stephanie. He says that he is speechless for the first time ever. Seth says he exorcised his greatest demon when he defeated Kane and kept his title. He ousted Kane as Director of Operations. Seth says he never would have had this opportunity to show the world how great he is if not for two visionaries, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.
Stephanie says that Seth is the greatest start of his generation but he has left them in an awkward situation. Hunter says that Seth has cleaned out the WWE by beating everyone there is to beat. Now someone has to dig, scratch, and claw to fight their way to earn their right and the privilege to step into the ring with Seth Rollins. That is what people are going to do tonight. The winners from last night are going to compete in the ring. The winners of the matches will compete in a Fatal Four Way. The winner of that match will earn the right to be called the Number One Contender and earn the right to get into the ring with you. They will have gained the privilege to be beaten by Seth Rollins.
Roman Reigns’ music plays and he makes his way to the ring and he seems okay after last night’s Hell in a Cell Match against Bray Wyatt.
Roman gets in Seth’s face and he says this whole thing has got him feeling sick. Y’all are really out here saying that Seth belongs in the WWE Hall of Fame? After tonight, you are looking at the Number One Contender. He is taking that championship. . . believe that.
Stephanie says let the games begin.
Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring to watch with the announcers.
Alberto Del Rio versus Kevin Owens versus Dolph Ziggler versus Roman Reigns in a Fatal Four Match that came about from four other matches earlier in the night to determine the Number One Contender for the WWE Championship
Winner: Roman Reigns
Rollins is running down Reigns from the announce table and then Reigns gets in Rollins’ face.
They both look at the WWE title belt and then Rollins grabs it and holds it close to his heart.
Reigns walks away and we go to credits.
