Kane tells Seth that is correct . . . in theory. Kane is trying to remember what Seth said earlier tonight. Did you say that I am obsolete or irrelevant?

Seth says it feels so good when a plan works out perfectly. This past Sunday, at Wrestlemania, he cashed in his Money in the Bank contract, inserted himself in the main event, defeated Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns, and became the World Champion. Seth says he solidified himself as the new face of WWE.
Seth says being WWE Champion isn’t all about being the best in the ring, even though he has proven it in the ring. After shocking the world, he jumped into the private jet, flew cross country, and appeared on the Today Show. Then he flew back across the country to walk into Raw to hear Brock demand his rematch.
Seth says he knows you cannot relate to being him, when you flew across the country twice, you can get jet lagged. Seth says the WWE Universe deserves Seth Rollins at his best. Even though Brock deserved a title match, Monday was not his night.
Seth says for every action, there is a reaction. If Brock had not lost his mind and F-5ed innocent announcers and innocent camera men, he might have gotten his title match tonight.
Randy Orton makes his way to the stage. He says he remembers everything. He remembers Seth curb stomping him through the steps. He remembers playing all of you in the ring like a fiddle until he got his sweet revenge. He remembers almost ripping off your head with an RKO at Wrestlemania. That was before you cashed in your precious contract.
Randy says that he is deserved a rematch. With Brock suspended indefinitely, he is at the top of the list for people for Seth to defend his title against.
Seth tells Randy not to dwell on the past when the present and future of the WWE is standing in this ring? He says he does not know who Randy thinks he is. In his universe and his WWE, he decides when and where the next title shot happens.
Randy says him and him alone? Who are you kidding because you have never done anything by yourself. He knows why J&J leech onto whoever is in power because they are spineless sewer rats. He does not understand why Big Show and Kane are lap dogs for the Authority when they are monsters.
Big Show did win the Andre the Giant Battle Royal, but what did you do at Wrestlemania Kane? Randy says he didn’t see him there. What does the Director of Operations do? He went from the Big Red Monster to Little Red Riding Hood.
Kane tells Randy that he has plenty of power. That is why you will face the winner of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, the Big Show. If you can defeat him, maybe . . . just maybe the Authority will reconsider your title opportunity. Kane tells Randy his match starts right now.
