Seth Rollins & Constable Baron Corbin In-Ring Segment: 

Burn it down will be Seth Rollins rallying cry when he puts his title on the line against Dean Ambrose. More importantly, that is going to be the theme for tonight in San Diego. Rollins is not here to call out Ambrose cause that would be a waste of time. Rollins is here to spit out some truth. Baron Corbin has been talking about being on the right side of history. Rollins wants Corbin to come out and get a dose of reality. If Rollins wants to have a conversation, they can do it in private. The door to his office is always open to a superstar of his caliber.

No one wants to hear what Corbin is saying. Rollins has been wrapped up with Dean Ambrose and he’s lost sight on the job Corbin is doing as Raw General Manager. The title of Corbin’s job description does not matter, but the bottom line is that under his ‘leadership’, Raw has sucked. Corbin is ruining people’s careers. Rollins goes through the bevy of issues you can hear on every single wrestling podcast. Corbin is allowing Rollins to vent, but he needs to watch his tone.  What will Corbin do? Fire him? The locker room has so much talent and Corbin has no idea what to do with it.

We have The Revival who should be wrestling for the tag titles, but they are in Lucha House Rules Matches. If Corbin was going to fire the entire roster, would the show be a three hour ass kissing session with him, Lashley and McIntyre?  That will really help ratings. How about more urination? Every decision you have made masks your insecurities. Has Braun Strowman hurt his feelings so much that he had to hand the title back to Brock Lesnar? A man who shows up only when he wants to show up.  Brock never wants to show up.  Where is your Universal Champion? Do you know the last time Brock has wrestled on Raw? It was 2002.

This Baron Corbin experiment has been an abject failure. The morale backstage, the fan support, and the ratings are at an all time low, and it is all because of him. Corbin appreciates Rollins feedback. He tells Rollins to write it down next time so he can file it under the i don’t care section. Raw is his show and if Rollins doesn’t like it, that is too bad. Corbin will be in charge for a long time. If you think it is bad now, it will get a lot worse for you. Rollins doesn’t think it can get any worse. Corbin says that Ambrose will beat Rollins on Sunday. The following night, he’ll become the permanent general manager of Raw.

Corbin always wanted to have a TLC match, but Strowman only has one arm. From that next day until the day he quits, Corbin will put Rollins through hell. Why wait until next week, let’s start putting him through hell tonight. Rollins challenges Corbin to a match. A one on one match is not good enough for the people. Since you wanted to have one, and the tools of the trade are here. Why not have a TLC match tonight? Corbin is dangerous man when using a chair, Strowman can attest to that. Rollins says that Corbin will be a tune up for Sunday. If Rollins wants to be a hero for the locker room, it will cost him in the long run. Corbin will show what happens when you disrespect the current and future GM of Raw. Rollins forces Corbin to accept the match. This match will now be for the Intercontinental Championship.
