The show started as the full WWE roster was seen standing near the entrance stage. Michael Cole revealed that there would be a big announcement. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon came out to the arena. Footage from last week was shown where Triple H and Stephanie McMahon officially stripped Daniel Bryan from the WWE World heavyweight championship and also announced the first time ever Money in the Bank ladder for the WWE World Heavyweight championship.
Cameras focused on the two championships hanging high over the ring as Stephanie McMahon started things off, she welcomed everyone to Monday Night Raw. She said that she called out all the WWE superstars and divas for a meeting because they wanted all of them to know that they care, they expressed their disappointment as they did not have a WWE World Heavyweight champion in the meantime.
Triple H said that they put their bodies on the line to become the WWE World Heavyweight champion. Stephanie gave the example of her husband on how a champion should be. That was why they thought it was too embarrassing for the superstars to be represented by a B+ player like Daniel Bryan. Triple H said that Daniel Bryan was selfish man to refuse all the other superstars to give the opportunity to prove themselves for the championship. They deserved better than that, the WWE Universe better than that.
That was why they were going to give everyone the opportunity to compete for the WWE World Heavyweight championship, because the authority was all about opportunities. They announced a battle royal where all the superstars standing in front of the entrance stage would compete to join Randy Orton, Cesaro, Alberto Del Rio, Sheamus and Bray Wyatt in the Money in the Bank ladder match for the WWE World Heavyweight championship match.
The fans started cheering to hear the announcement as Triple H stopped them by saying that not everybody will join the battle royal as not everybody evolved. There are a certain number of superstars who did not imply to the authority, they would not be competing in the battle royal. Triple H announced the names of those superstars who would not be competing in the battle royal are; Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and also John Cena.
Triple H asked John Cena not to get excited because he said that he would be giving him his opportunity to compete. A couple of weeks ago Stephanie announced a type of title match at Money in the Bank which they could not give because of Daniel Bryan. So they arranged a stretcher match between John Cena and Kane where the winner will enter the Money in the Bank match.
