Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and The Authors Of Pain In-Ring Segment

Seth Rollins: This time last week, I brought the entire Raw roster out to ringside, so we can discuss our performance at Survivor Series. And look, I’ll say it as plainly and frankly as I did last week, I said we all sucked. That was a little bit too harsh, but I want you guys to understand that it was coming from a really good place. It was coming from my heart because this is not just my job, this is my life. And the guys and the girls in that locker room are not just my colleagues, they are my brothers and sisters. They are my family. And families aren’t just about blood, they’re about fighting together.

As the head of this family, I felt like it is my responsibility to motivate our locker room and to get the absolute best out of every single superstar here on Raw. But I may have gone overboard. I thought about it all week and I would like to apologize. First and foremost, I would like to apologize to the WWE Universe. I would like to apologize to the entire locker room. Specifically, I would like to apologize to Kevin Owens. Kev, I know you’re back there listening. I know you’re back there watching. Would please come down to this ring, so I can apologize to you, face to face, man to man.

Kevin Owens: Do you guys smell that at all? I don’t know if it’s just me, but it smells like something I can’t quite put my finger on it. I got it. It smells like when the rodeo comes to Nashville. Like the animals and stuff, there’s a certain smell attached to that. And right now it’s hitting me hard because what I just heard you say. This whole apology and talking about how we’re all a family. Let me ask you this. Would the two closest members of that family of yours happen to be The AOP by any chance?

Seth Rollins: Kev, I have nothing to do with The AOP. I don’t know anything about that man. I swear to you. I don’t know why they laid you out.

Kevin Owens: Seth, I’m sorry to interrupt you, well not really. Do you know how I know you’re lying? Because your lips are moving. By the way, that smell I was referring to, is bullshit.

Seth Rollins: Kev, I had nothing to do with that man. I promise to you. You know that. I would not do that to you.

The Authors Of Pain: How about the two of us versus the two of you here tonight?

Seth Rollins: Alright! Hey I can’t speak for you Kev, but if you’re in, I’m in. Let’s do this thing.

Kevin Owens: If I’m in, you’re in? I’ll tell you what, the way I see it, one of three things can happen and all of those scenarios end with the three of you beating the crap out of me. So I’m not falling for that. If you guys are gonna do it, let’s do it now. Let’s get it over with.

Seth Rollins: You know what man? I tried. I tried. You do you, I’ll do me. You’re on your own man.

– Rollins exits the ring.

Kevin Owens: You know what, Seth might be out of here, but I absolutely would love to get a piece of the two of you. So you want to come down here, preferably one at a time, that would be great? Come on, let’s have some fun boys. Alright, I guess it won’t be Seth. I guess it won’t be AOP, but I’m in the middle of this ring, I’m all taped up, i’m ready to go and I think Nashville wants to see a fight. So somebody indulge me. Come out anybody and fight me.

I’m direct and I’m going to get straight to the point. Randy Orton, I’ve got a problem with you, so bring yourself to this ring right now, so we can bloody talk about it.
