Stephanie McMahon and Triple H are in the ring. Stephanie says that she is proud to announce that an attendance record has been set of 76,976 for Levi’s Stadium. Stephanie talks about sitting in the crowd for Wrestlemania when her friend Andre the Giant slammed Big John Studd. It was only available on Closed Circuit television. Now, Wrestlemania is available in 170 countries on the WWE Network.

She says this evolution would not be possible without . . . ME. She also says her husband Triple H. Without them, WWE would not be where it is without their guidance.

Hunter says the truth hurts. Not only did he beat Sting, he felt like he beat anyone who ever bet against them. He says it was like he beat 76,976 of you. He also beat millions more watching on the WWE Network. The fact is he owned Sting. Just like they own every superstar and diva back there. Just like we own all of you. Whether you like it or don’t, it doesn’t matter. The Authority always wins (except for Seth Rollins).

If you smell . . .

The Rock makes his way to the ring.

The crowd chants ‘This is Awesome’ and Stephanie wants to know if the people know what awesome means.

Stephanie says we get it that you are happy to see him so can you be quiet.

Rock says that you don’t own them and you damn sure don’t own the Rock. You come out here and you run down the people. You fail to realize the Rock is an East Bay boy. He was born in the East Bay. There are two choices. You can go dress up like Terminator again or we can have a Wrestlemania moment right here, right now.

One of the biggest rivalries of all time. The Rock against Triple H.

They get nose to nose and Hunter says they had a hell of a rivalry but he remembers kicking Rock’s ass for most of it. He ain’t got nothing to prove to you.

Rock says just like he left his heart in San Francisco, in front of the millions of the Rock’s fans, Hunter has left his balls in Stamford, Connecticut.

Stephanie tells Hunter to wait a moment. Rock has a chip on his shoulder. He is going to feed the crowd lines and he will feed his ego. Rock knows without the McMahons there is no Rock. Stephanie mentions Peter Maivia, Rocky Johnson, and Dwayne Johnson would be nobody without Vince McMahon, Vince McMahon Junior, and Stephanie McMahon.

Rock says Stephanie would not be in power if it wasn’t for Vince McMahon’s Johnson.

Stephanie slaps Rock and she asks him what is he going to do about it? Is he going to hit a woman? This is her house and her ring and her people. She tells Rock to get the hell out of here.

Rock says he would never hit a woman, but he has a friend who would be happy to.

Stephanie says it is a nice surprise to call Ronda into the ring spur of the moment. Stephanie says they are fans of each other. She was ringside for her match at SummerSlam. She wants to know if Rock filled her head with dreams of a Wrestlemania moment because it isn’t going to happen. Stephanie says Ronda is the most dangerous unarmed woman in the world. She is the Queen of the Octagon. She would never mess with Ronda in MMA. This is the squared circle. She tells Ronda if she isn’t going to sit there an enjoy herself, she needs to get out of the ring.

Ronda says any ring she steps into his hers. If you want her to leave, make her.

Stephanie tells Ronda to get the hell out of her ring. . . NOW.

Rock interrupts and he says he has to tell Stephanie what ‘that look’ means. It means that if you continue to run your mouth, she will reach down your throat and play jump rope with your Fallopian tubes.

Hunter tells Rock that is the last thing you are going to say about your wife.

Rock agrees and he punches Hunter. Ronda with a hip lock to Hunter and he rolls to the floor. Stephanie turns Ronda around and she tries to slap Ronda but Ronda grabs Stephanie and sends her to the mat and Stephanie leaves the ring.
