Seth Rollins & Shinsuke Nakamura Segment 

Seth Rollins: I recently made my triumphant return to SmackDown after a lengthy hiatus. And when I did, the entire SmackDown locker room came out to the ring, surrounded the ring to greet me like a king. And now, let’s make no mistake about it, it’s not because they like me, some of them might, but most of them probably don’t, that’s fine, it doesn’t matter. They came out to greet me because they respect me. They respect everything I’ve accomplished in this ring. So, when they all turn their backs and walked out on me, I respected their decision to be idiots. But there’s one person who took disrespect too far. Cesaro stayed out here, by himself, he stood, right there. He looked me in my eyes, he disrespected me, he humiliated me, he embarrassed me. And I finally figured out why. He’s jealous of me. Cesaro is jealous of me.

He’s jealous of the fact that I’m successful at every single thing I do. He’s jealous of the fact that I am loved everywhere I go. And he’s jealous of the fact that I am a WrestleMania Main Eventer, while he is an abject failure. The big difference between Cesaro and I, beyond all of that, is that I’m a fighter. I’m not a failure, I’m a fighter. You knock me down, I stand right back up. And, after what Cesaro showed us last week, he can’t say the same thing about him. What’s keeping you down, Cesaro? You’re having a hard time standing up for yourself? Wait, maybe it’s all those years, running around and reaching for that brass ring. Listen to me very closely, Cesaro, you swung me 22 times, I count, and you will never disrespect me or embarrass me like that again, because I’m Seth Freaking Rollins and you are the biggest waste of potential in the history of WWE.

– Shinsuke Nakamura comes out to interrupt Rollins.

Seth Rollins: Talk about disrespect, you come out here and interrupt me? For what? Don’t you step another foot near me or what I did to Cesaro is going to happen to you, ten fold. Shinsuke, listen to me, don’t disrespect me. Look, you are better than Cesaro, you are better than him, you are more of a man than he will ever be, alright. I know you respect me. I didn’t you stand out here, you walked away like a good man.

Roman Reigns & Daniel Bryan Segment 

Daniel Bryan: Wow, what night. In tonight’s main event, we have Edge vs. Jey Uso, Edge’s first match on SmackDown in 10 years. And the winner gets to be special ringside enforcer for my Universal Championship Match against Roman Reigns at Fastlane. Wow, wow. You know, if Jey Uso wins, we know exactly what we’re gonna get, he’s going to do everything in his power to make sure Roman Reigns wins. And to be honest, if Roman was the champion he thought he was, he wouldn’t need that help.

On the other hand, Edge is the Ultimate Opportunist. He will do anything he can to get what he wants. And what he seems to want more than anything is to face Roman Reigns one on one at WrestleMania. And I get it, I understand why, because Edge doesn’t want to face me. And Edge thinks he could beat Roman Reigns. But here’s the difference between me and Edge, he thinks he could beat Roman Reigns, I know I could beat Roman Reigns. And I am going to prove it this Sunday at Fastlane, when I do exactly to Roman Reigns what I did to his cousin, Jey Uso, and that’s make Roman Reigns tap out.

Roman Reigns: You’re gonna tap me out? He’s going to tap me out. Look, DB, I can deal with you telling these little lies, like a couple weeks ago about being ambitious, about deserving to be in the main event of WrestleMania, I can deal with these little white lies about yourself. But you’re gonna come out here and you’re gonna drag my name, you’re gonna lie on The Tribal Chief? You can’t tap me out. You don’t have a chance. Paul, he has a better chance of shooting lightning out of his ass than tapping me out. DB, you got better chance of sprouting out wings and flying out here like a little bird than tapping me out. Understand this, little man, no one in my entire career has tap me out. I would rather lose my arm than to tap out to any man. And I would rather die in that ring than to tap out to somebody like you.

Daniel Bryan: You rather die? That’s pretty strong. Make no mistake, you’re talking about lies, and lies I’ve told. All those things that you say about yourself, the head of the table, the this or that or whatever, those are all lies, man, they are all delusions. And here’s the thing, everybody thinks they’re invincible until they’re not. And everybody thinks they’re unbeatable until they lost. Everyone thinks they’re untappable until they tap out. So, here’s the thing, I’m not just gonna make you quit, I am going to break you, I am going to break you of your beliefs, I am going to break you of everything you think you are, I am going to break you of your delusions. And here’s the thing, I hope you don’t die, but if you tap out or if you don’t tap out, I am beating you for the Universal Championship at Fastlane.
