Footage from last night’s Survivor Series was shown where the Survivor Series elimination match came down to the final two men; Dolph Ziggler for team Cena and Seth Rollins for team Authority, Triple H did his best to keep this match going. Ziggler attempted to pin Seth Rollins after his Zig Zag finishing maneuver, Triple H knocked out the referee. Ziggler attempted to pin Rollins again after hitting the same finishing maneuver, Triple H knocked out the new referee too. Triple H entered the ring and beat down Dolph Ziggler all by himself. He knocked Ziggler out with the Pedigree and pulled Seth Rollins over him for the cover. Scott Armstrong; the new referee came out to count the pin, and then, it happened. The Sting made his WWE debut. The Sting entered the arena to surprise everyone. He entered the ring and nailed Triple H with his Scorpion Death Lock finishing maneuver. He pulled Ziggler over Rollins and allowed Ziggler to pick up the victory for team Cena.
The show started as the authority came out to the arena. The fans totally booed them. They entered the ring as Stephanie McMahon started things off. She said that she expected this kind of reaction from the fans that night, because none of them knew the meaning of the word respect. None of them understood the courage that took to come out there, because none of them understood what it was to be a leader, to stand in the face of all of this adversity and except responsibility for their actions which was exactly why they were out there on that night.
She said that team would have won easily, but they could not because of one man. One man who never stepped in a WWE ring, one man who in one night changed the entire face of WWE history forever, and that man was of course Sting. The fans cheered really loud to hear the name of Sting. She said that because of him the authority was out of power, and because of her father; the chairman and CEO of WWE, only person who could rehire the authority was John Cena. But they stood before them on that night not as losers, but as leaders, as winners, because at the end of the day they still had their corporate responsibilities. They might not have any influence over the lives of the WWE Superstars and Divas but they still have each other. Stephanie McMahon started crying as she could not speak anymore. Triple H hugged her.
Triple H asked the fans if they loved it. The fans cheered in unison. The fans chanted ‘yes.’ Triple H said that these fans were bullies. Triple H told the fans to go ahead and cheer, the authority was out of power, something that they ever wanted. But like he said before be careful for what they wished for. Because he knew the fact there was nobody there that could handle that power. They lived in a world governed by the laws of finance, and commerce, supply and demand, something the fans knew nothing about and in order to ensure that those things that meditates a leader who was willing to do what best for business was. That would make decisions, made what best for business was, certainly not what was popular.
He asked who was going to make those decisions on their behalf now, was it going to be John Cena, was it going to be Dolph Ziggler, or was it Sting. Triple H said that Sting made a big mistake by involving his painted face on their business, it might be a tempt of standing with Triple H on the same ring with thirty seconds to make his career relevant somehow. But whatever it was, it would be a matter, because ironically, his first night in a WWE ring was his last night in a WWE ring because the fans thought the authority might not be in power, what they really did was ensuring the demise of the WWE, when the authority would be in power again, they would make things better. They had a greater responsibility than them. They cheered for team Cena, and stood against the authority because they had that luxury of not knowing what they knew, that the things they did for all of them was seemingly cruel and sadistic or what it took to make the WWE thrive.
Triple H asked who was going to make those decisions now, without the authority there was no John Cena, there was no Dolph Ziggler, there was no Ryback, and without the authority there were no fans. Triple H congratulated the fans, he asked the fans what would they do when the Monday night Raw no longer existed, what would they do. They would just sit back and memorize their old memories of their own personal failures. He wanted the fans to cheer because the authority was going to leave now. He wanted them to mark his words, they would beg for them to come back.
Triple H and Stephanie McMahon attempted to leave the ring. Daniel Bryan’s music hit and the former WWE World Heavyweight champion Daniel Bryan came out to the arena. He came out to the ring doing the ‘yes’ chant with the fans. They went near Triple H and started chanting ‘yes.’ Then he went near to Stephanie McMahon and did the same thing. The fans were going totally wild as they joined Daniel Bryan. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon left the ring, Bryan followed them back again he chanted ‘yes’ on their face to irritate them. He first did it on the face of Triple H and then he did it in front of Stephanie McMahon. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon remained quiet, and swallowed all the embarrassments as they left the arena slowly.
Daniel Bryan went back to the ring and said that it felt really good to be back to WWE. He said that he did not know about the fans but kicking the authority out of the ring felt him really good. He asked what about team authority, the fans might not know this but on that night Daniel Bryan was put in charge running Monday Night Raw. He knew the fact that Triple H was convinced that people like Bryan is not capable of running the show. But as the man in charge he would want team authority to come out before the fans, just because they lost last night did not mean they were bad people.
Team Authority; Seth Rollins, Kane, Rusev, Luke Harper, Mark Henry, Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury came out to the arena. Bryan told them that he was not a spikeful man, they were not going to strip anyone of them from their titles, they were not going to put them in any unfair match, he was a fair man, and he would prove it, he was going to start with Mr. Money in the Bank Seth Rollins. He told Seth that he was used to compete in handicap matches. The authority always put you in three on two or four on two matches all the time, so there should not be any difference on that night. On that night, he was going to team him up with two other WWE superstars to wrestle the team of John Cena and the man who single handedly defeated the Authority last night, Dolph Ziggler. He knew that Cena and Dolph were always up for challenges, and like he said, this was going to be a three on two handicap match, something in they were used to.
Seth Rollins interrupted him, he said that big picture wise he was still the future of WWE. There was nothing he could do about that. But he was curious about what the deal was. Who would Bryan team him up with, was it Hornswoogle and El Torito, or would be JBL and Michael Cole. He asked who would it be?
Daniel Bryan said that actually he was not teaming up with anybody, it would be the WWE Universe who would. The WWE Universe would be choosing his tag team partners on the WWE app and Bryan was going to give him some real good choices. Team A; Mark Henry and Luke Harper, it would be quite a strong team. Team B; Mark Henry and Kane, another strong team, Daniel Bryan said that he did not want to be unfair. And the third team that he could possibly team up with, he wanted Rollins to move a little side. Rollins moved, Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury were standing behind. Bryan said that team C to be Seth Rollins’ tag team partners would be; Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury.
