He is the guy who is going to beat your ass tonight because he accepts Seth’s condition to respond to his challenge. Randy knows it will be five on one later tonight with the deck stacked against him. Seth, you need all the help you can get because he has enough venom for all of the Authority.
If he suffers a beatdown tonight, it will be worth it to get his hands on Seth at Wrestlemania. You better hope you get it done tonight because if you make it to Wrestlemania, he will finish Seth.
Seth Rollins vs. Randy Orton
Before the match: Seth has something to say. He tells Randy it took you three weeks of scheming and conniving and cajoling to make every single member of the Authority look like fools.
Seth starts to laugh as if he is “PURE EVIL”, but it only took three hours to make a fool out of you.
Triple H’s music plays and the Authority is out and they are unified. Orton goes to the floor and he takes a chair because a steel chair can stop seven people.
The Authority surrounds the ring. Rollins signals to everyone and as he gets on the apron, everyone else does. They all get into the ring and the lights go out and a crow sounds. The lights go back on and STING is in the ring with his bat. Orton hits people with the chair while Sting hits people with his bat. Sting with a Vigilante Stinger Splash on Mercury and Noble. Sting with the Scorpion Death Drop to Noble. Orton twists to the mat and he hits Mercury with an RKO.
Randy Orton makes his way to the ring. Seth Rollins, Kane, Big Show, Jamie Noble, and Joey Mercury are already in the ring. Kane tells Randy that they could have done this in private, behind closed doors before the show started, but they wanted to do this in the ring in public, to prove to everyone that you are one of us to rub it in their face and show their ignorance.
Kane says that he welcomes Randy back into the Authority.
Big Show says they go back a long time . . . and then Show waits to deal with the ignorant ‘You Sold Out’ chants before continuing. Show says that when he looks at Randy, he sees the most talented and sadistic Superstar. He is so ruthless that he would RKO his own father if he stood in the way of what he wanted. Show says that he stood up for Randy and told them what he could provide. He welcomes Randy back into the Authority.
Jamie Noble says that he is proud . . . he calls Randy a no good snake who cannot be trusted.
Seth tells Randy to excuse Jamie because he has always been the sensitive one. He asks Jamie if he was offended when Randy gave him an RKO. He says that Jamie is 100% thrilled that Randy is back, just like Joey.
Joey doesn’t want to say anything.
Seth tells Randy to cut them some slack. He wants to address the elephant in the room. Everyone in the WWE Universe has been saying the same thing. They are saying that Randy Orton is not part of the Authority. Randy is just biding his time until he gets his revenge on Seth Rollins. You guys must feel like the biggest idiots on Planet Earth right now.
Seth says it is not because you live in Pittsburgh, but because he is standing side by side with Randy Orton in the same ring as proud members of the Authority.
Seth says everyone had a little bit of doubt, including himself. He is willing to say that he had some doubt. Everyone had doubts, even Big Show, but no one cares what Big Show thinks. Seth wonders why everyone is so stressed out. He says they are all back together as one big happy family. Seth says that he wants to extend his hand and welcome Randy home.
Seth wants everyone to give it up for Randy Orton.
Randy says that was very touching. He thanks everyone for the kind words and he felt it in the bottom of his heart. It left him thinking about something. What the hell happened to the Authority? You guys are kissing his ass. Who do you think you are?
Kane was the Devil’s Favorite Demon, now are you the Devil’s Favorite Dumbass? Are you kicking ass and taking names or kissing ass and making coffee?
Why isn’t Big Show the most dominant man in the WWE. Instead, you bitch and moan about yourself. From the most dominant superstar to the most pathetic.
Jamie, you speak from your gut, but why do you despise him so much? Is it because people know who he is or is it because Randy can get on all the rides at Disneyland. Randy says his daughter feels the same way, but she is six years old.
Randy ignores Joey completely before going to Seth. You are the self proclaimed future of the WWE. You have been blinded by your ego so much that you cannot see. Randy has been getting close to your ‘family’ to make sure that you are safe and secure. At that time, he will strike. Not only will he beat Seth, he will make Seth his bitch. You are going to feel every stomp, kick, and punch as he takes him apart piece by piece until there is no future for Seth Rollins.
Randy says that he is just playing around with you. He is messing around and Seth laughs with him.
Seth tells Randy he had him good and maybe Randy should take over for Jon Stewart. Wait until you see what him and his partner do tonight when they really have fun when they dismantle Roman Reigns and derail him on his Road to Wrestlemania.
Backstage: Randy Orton appears and he tells Seth that . . . was embarrassing. Where was Seth’s crack security team? They shouldn’t have let Roman within ten feet of Seth. He agrees with what Seth said. Randy says if that happened to him, he would go to the Authority and demand a one on one match against Roman Reigns to prove that not only could he out talk Jon Stewart but he can outwrestle Roman Reigns.
Seth says that he can outwrestle anyone on the roster and he will take care of this himself.
Backstage: Seth is in the office and he says that he cannot believe that Jon Stewart came into his ring and embarrassed him.
Randy Orton comes out and he says that he saved Seth’s career. If you had punched Jon, you would have been sued and you would have lost your job. Where is the thanks? Randy says that if Seth needs any help tonight, all you have to do is ask.
Kane and Big Show enter and they say they have Seth’s back. Jamie tells Orton they won’t need everybody out there.

Randy Orton makes his way to the ring as he makes his return to Raw after returning last night at Fastlane.
Randy says that he is not the guy who come out here to talk your ears off for twenty minutes in a long promo or monologue but he has something to get off his chest. He has been out of action for the last four months because of the Authority and Seth Rollins. In case you forgot why Orton has been gone, we see the footage from November when he got curb stomped by Rollins.
Randy says for the last four month he has been replaying that moment over and over in his head. That is why he is back. He is here to say that he is just getting started. Last night, Seth Rollins got away, but it was just a stay of execution. There will be no more hiding or running.
Randy tells Seth to get his ass out right now.
Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Big Show, and Kane make their way to the ring.
Stephanie is going to be the spokesperson for the Authority. She welcomes Randy back and she says that Randy made a hell of a return at Fastlane as well as tonight. Even though it happened at the expense of the Authority, that is the Randy Orton that the people love. Stephanie says that is the Randy she wants as the face of the WWE.
Randy says that he is not part of the Authority. He will not forgive Seth Rollins. All he is going to do is bash his brains in.
Stephanie says that Randy can forgive Seth. The face and future of the WWE can co-exist. You left us no choice four months ago. We can forgive you so come back home.
Randy says that he would rather kick some ass than kiss some ass.
Big Show decides to talk some sense into Randy. He says he knows that Randy is frustrated. All that anger and frustration inside, he can understand. Show says that he has had to put some anger and frustration aside. Joining the Authority was the best decision that he ever made. Show says that he knows Orton.
Show says Orton coming back to the Authority is the best decision he could make.
Orton says coming back to the Authority would mean ‘selling out’.
Stephanie tells Randy to look her in the eyes. She says that Randy is not a good guy. He does what he does not for the love of the crowd, but for his own rewards. You have done deplorable things for those rewards. Some of those acts have been against her family. She mentions that some things have even happened against her. She says that she is asking Randy to listen to them. She is not trying to force his hands. She wants a business conference so they can discuss this as professionals. She wants Orton to come back home.
They leave the ring, except for Triple H, who stares at Orton. Hunter leaves the ring.
Randy tells them to wait a moment as they are about to go to the back. He says he will be there and he will see them for the business meeting.
