Rusev is walking in the back and he has his Russian flag as we go to commercial.

We are back and Rusev makes his way to the ring wit his giant Russian Flag while Lana carries the United States Title to the ring.

Lana goes through her pleasantries and then she tells everyone to shut up.

Lana says after the emotional, inspiring, and heartfelt speech that Ryback gave last week on Raw, a terrible thing happened to him. The Authority came back and fired the Big Guy.

We see comments from Ryback after he was fired and he says that just like that, the job you worked your life to get is gone. He says it is the worst feeling of his life. He doesn’t know what the future holds for him but he is going home.

Lana tells Ryback that you have really worked hard for ten years. She says that you have overcome obstacles no mere mortal would have ever done. But your reality is that the embarrassment that you feel after you got fired compares to nothing as the shame you would have felt if you faced the Super Athlete Rusev.

Rusev takes the mic and he says last Monday on Raw you were embarrassed. If you had stayed in the ring, you would have been humiliated. The Authority did you a favor because you left with your health. He would have mopped you up if you wrestled. Rusev says that he will enter the Royal Rumble, where 29 other men will fall before his feet. Rusev will take his place, his righteous place in the main event of Wrestlemania.

We get comments from Erick Rowan after he was fired. Rowan says disappointment comes to mind and then he puts on his mask and walks away.

Dolph Ziggler says that he is guilty of being a WWE Superstar who tries to do the best, steal shows, and set bars. He did something great at the Survivor Series, but now he no longer has a job. Dolph tells Renee it was good to work with you.

The announcers wonder how John Cena is coping with this. Michael Cole mentions that the weekly Triple H interview returns on Wednesday.

We go to commercial.
