Michael Cole announces that The Authority is on vacation.

After a loud ovation for Roman Reigns, Reigns says he comes down to the ring with a point. Reigns brings up Triple H putting him in the Fatal 4-Way at Battleground because it’s Best For Business. Reigns thinks it’s because Triple H thinks he can neutralize John Cena, then Kane takes out Reigns, allowing Randy Orton to walk away with the title. Reigns says he can neutralize John Cena, neutralize Kane and that Randy Orton won’t be walking out as WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Roman Reigns tells the WWE Universe that he has assessed this situation a 1,000 times and although he is a wanted man, he’s got a trigger. As Reigns speaks, a loud”We Want Bret” chant breaks out.

The loud chant breaks turns into a “Cena Sucks” chant. Reigns tells the WWE Universe that when Roman Reigns is in the house, you’re damn right Cena sucks. The WWE Universe erupts.


Roman Reigns says he doesn’t care if The Authority has to say because he is irrelevant. Reigns calls Randy Orton irrelevant and pawn in the Authority’s game, then declares that he will be the new WWE Word Heavyweight Champion. Reigns says to “Believe That” then gets interrupted by The Demon Kane.

Roman Reigns stares down Kane then asks him if he’s standing in for The Authority. Reigns asks if Kane is still the Devil’s Favorite Demon because lately, it looks like Kane is Triple H’s lapdog and Randy Orton’s Bitch.

The Demon Kane charges to the ring and starts brawling with Roman Reigns outside and into the crowd.

Kane agrees, then tells Orton that at Battleground, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is coming back to The Authority.

Rollins tells Kane and Orton that if either one of them win the Money In The Bank, he’ll think twice about cashing in his Money In The Bank Briefcase.
