By Richard Trionfo on 2015-04-06 23:00:17
We are in Austin, Texas and your announcers are Byron Saxton, John Layfield and Booker T.

Byron mentions that Triple H and Stephanie are on vacation this week so who knows what will happen tonight after what we saw last week on Raw.

Big Show is standing next to his trophy while Seth Rollins, Kane, Jamie Noble, and Joey Mercury are in the ring.

Seth says before we get started tonight, he wants to take a second . . . to be interrupted by the crowd booing him. Big Show has joined everyone in the ring.

Seth says that he is trying to . . . he gets interrupted again.

Big Show tells you to show some respect for your champion. Seth tells Show he understands that they are all jealous and he would be jealous of himself too. Seth says he wants to wish Triple H and Stephanie well wishes since they are on vacation. They deserve a vacation after the Wrestlemania they put on. Seth says he thought we were over the ‘You Sold Out’ chants. Seth reminds everyone that he is the WWE Champion.

The biggest takeaway from Wrestlemania is not that they broke the attendance record for Levi’s Stadium, that this was the record Wrestlemania crowd, or that they trended 142 during Wrestlemania. The biggest takeaway is that the Authority always wins. Wrestlemania is all about creating moments. They created moments all night long.

Their leader and his role model Triple H nailed the final nail in the coffin of WCW when he single handedly beat Sting. Big Show cemented his place as the greatest Giant of all time by winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

Kane . . . Kane . . . Kane was there.

Show takes the mic and he says that he is no longer under Andre the Giant’s shadow, and he says he never was because he is the greatest Giant of all time. Now everyone is under his shadow. Wrestlemania ended with a new WWE Champion. A true fighting champion. A champion with honor, dignity, and respect . . . Seth Rollins.

Seth says the future is now and not just in the new WWE Champion. Seth Rollins is the greatest champion OF ALL TIME.

Show says that we should thank Seth because Seth gave us an epic memory. A memory that will go down as one of the greatest things that will live forever, on the WWE Network.

Seth cannot think about what to say about Kane so Kane takes the mic. He says that the Authority was successful at Wrestlemania because . . .

Randy Orton’s music plays and he makes his way to the stage. Randy congratulates Seth for getting his Wrestlemania moment and he wants everyone to let Seth hear it. By cashing in, it does not take away from Randy hitting the greatest RKO of his career. Randy points out that he beat Seth.

Seth tells Randy his problem is that he sees things as ‘glass half empty’. Seth says he cannot stand whiny complainers. It is not about Randy Orton.

Randy says that he is calling it like it is. He deserves the chance to face Seth for the title. Randy wants to know if he needs to check with Mommy and Daddy to make it okay.

Kane says that he is still the Director of Operations and in a position of power so he tells Randy to show him some respect. Kane says that Randy has made it clear that he wants to challenge Seth Rollins for the WWE Championship, but there are others who are worthy. Tonight we will have a triple threat match to determine the Number One Contender to face Seth Rollins at Extreme Rules. It will be Roman Reigns versus Ryback versus Randy Orton. Kane says that is what is best for business.

Kane says that you will all compete in singles matches before the main event. Kane tells Randy his match is next. . . . against ME!
