This was the first segment of the night and it was quite a big one. Chris Jericho welcomed the fans to Raw and Chris Jericho’s highlight reel in his vintage style by saying ‘Welcome to Raw is Jericho’. He excited the fans by taking the name of the local place and he praised the fans for all of their hard works.
Jericho revealed who would be his guest of the night and that would be Randy Orton. But before Jericho could finish the music of Triple H was heard. The authority (Triple H, Kane, Randy Orton and Seth Rollins) came out to the arena. As they entered the ring Jericho said that he was expecting Randy Orton to come all by himself, he did not expect him to bring his stable members who according to Jericho were ‘sell out suck ups’.
It angered Kane who went forward to threaten him but Triple H prevented him. Triple H said that this was Chris Jericho; the man that never grew up, both figuratively and literally. Triple H said that he would love nothing more than standing right into the ring and swapping selves with him.
Jericho said that he was confused because Triple H did not come out to the ring occasionally for serious matters unless his wife was put in jail. Triple H said that Jericho should think more about himself than thinking about Jericho and mocked him and his outfits. Jericho quickly returned the favor by mocking Triple H’s outfit.
Triple H said that Jericho should be thanking him for making this highlight reel the most historic highlight reel ever. Because he had been listening to John Cena and Brock Lesnar, he had been listening to the experts, he had been commentaries from their Hall of Fame forum their last week, and he had watched the match between Cena and Lesnar from Summerslam over and over again.
But at the end of the day it felt that the conclusion might not come out as the best for business to have a rematch between Cena and Brock Lesnar and he was contemplating naming a new no 1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight championship at the Night of Champions.
Jericho mocked Triple H by asking him if he could not get the WWE Network for $9.99. He asked one more question that Triple H had already granted John Cena his mandatory rematch so why was he changing his mind right now. Jericho asked who the no 1 contender was.
Randy Orton interfered him by saying that there was only one man in the arena who could beat Brock Lesnar and he was the twelve time World champion Randy Orton himself, Kane said that it might be someone dug up the mask and unleashed the demon. Seth Rollins concluded the potentials name by naming himself. The fans chanted for Seth really well. Jericho said that Triple H could give the chance to Chris Jericho who was a former six times World champion.
John Cena’s music hit and Cena came out. Fans booed him just like always. Cena quickly went inside the ring with a mic. Cena told Triple H that just because his best friends Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair did not think he could not beat Brock Lesnar did not mean he could not beat him and it did not mean he would not. They were the same two guys who thought Cena could not beat Triple H at WrestleMania 22 and Triple H tapped out, and if he did not remember that, he should go and watch it for $9.99.
Cena continued that Triple H was running WWE as the COO of the company, he could not change decisions by hearing to his friends. Cena invoked his rematch, and Triple H authorized it which meant even if he thought of taking it away from him Cena would think of taking him to court. He would then force him lose all his pennies and he would become the COO of WWE, and once he became the COO of WWE, he would fire Triple H. Cena imitated Vince McMahon when he said ‘You’re Fired’. He said that the rematch was happening and he would beat Brock Lesnar at the Night of Champions.
Triple H mocked John Cena for mentioning that he would take him to court. He said that he might be a small minded person, but he knew what his job was, and he knew what the COO of WWE of was and it meant no matter what he did was best for business for WWE every single day (I heard sleep of tongue from Triple H, he said WWWE). He said that John Cena as WWE World Heavyweight championship would not be the best for business anymore. But he also thought that John Cena’s career coming to an end by hands of Brock Lesnar would not be best for business either.
Seth Rollins interfered and said that let him have the rematch. What worse thing could have happen, there might be an opportunity for Seth to cash in his contract. Randy Orton said that Seth was right, let Cena have his rematch and after Night of Champions, Orton would face the champion, and Orton had his one on one championship match pending since the end of WrestleMania.
Jericho said that since Randy Orton had four thousand title matches after WrestleMania and he never got successful, as a matter of fact, the last time he had a big match he was defeated by Roman Reigns. Orton said that Summerslam was an accident and he could beat Roman Reigns anytime he wish and if Jericho wanted to make fun of him, he could not help himself from the Punch line.
The music of Roman Reigns hit and Roman Reigns came out through the crowd. He entered the ring and told Randy to do whatever he could to him. He mocked Seth Rollins and Kane next. He said that Seth and Reigns had unfinished business to deal with. But when the discussion was about the WWE World Heavyweight championship, he name needed to be included in that discussion.
Triple H said that it sounded like everybody inside the ring thought he was the guy, he was guy to who should face Brock Lesnar and John Cena at Night of Champions for the WWE World Heavyweight championship. He told Cena that he still did not believe that Cena could beat Brock Lesnar at night of Champions, neither he thought Cena himself believed it. Triple H said that he was going to give opportunities to all the superstars standing inside the ring to get a chance to face Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight championship at Night of Champions. He wanted to see who stood tall. John Cena, Roman Reigns and Chris Jericho would face Randy Orton, Seth Rollins and Kane. He wanted to see who could do it. He would be around the ring and he would be watching the match.
The Authority made their way out of the ring. As they were departing, Seth Rolling sneaked inside the ring from the backside of the ring and tried to attack Roman Reigns with the briefcase, Roman Reigns punched Seth Rollins right into the face, Seth fell down and left his briefcase inside. Reigns picked up the briefcase and taunted Seth. Reigns asked Seth to take the contract from him. Seth wanted Reigns to give him the contract back. Reigns threw it hard and it stuck against the mid section of Seth Rollins. It hurt Seth really good, his allies stopped him from going inside the ring, Triple H and the other authority members departed slowly as Roman Reigns stood tall inside the ring. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns kept taunting each other as Kane dragged Seth Rollins out of the arena.
