Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw, The Authority walk down to the ring to open the show. They tout how great the HIAC PPV was. Triple H brought up Alberto Del Rio’s return to WWE and that Seth Rollins is leading the charge for the new wave of WWE Superstars. They then introduced Rollins to the ring. They praised him for beating all of the challengers that they’ve placed in front of him. Triple H said that they’re proud of him for all of his achievements. Rollins then hugged the both of them and said that he is speechless. Rollins said that he kept his word and outed that Demon Kane. He thanked them for giving him the opportunity to succeed. They said that he’s cleaned out the division and now the Superstars have to earn the right to fight Rollins for the title. This led to Roman Reigns walking down to the ring.
