Seth Rollins & Sami Zayn Segment
Seth Rollins: Mohegan Sun Arena, Welcome To Monday Night Rollins. I am a visionary. I am a revolutionary. I am Seth Freakin’ Rollins. And I am still your World Heavyweight Champion. Hey, now, normally I would like to come out here and talk about myself, but tonight I actually came out here to talk about two other people. Two people that I need to give a big thank you to. First off, I want to say thank you to Drew McIntyre. Saturday at Crown Jewel, Drew and I beat the hell out of each other. It’s the reason why I’m not at 100% at the moment. But it is also the reason that I am a little bit better than I was before Saturday. The real reason why I want to give props to Drew is because he’s a man of his words.
He said he was not in bed with The Judgment Day, and at Crown Jewel, The Judgment Day didn’t get involve in our match. Now, after our match, Damian Priest tried to cash in his Money In The Bank Contract on me, which leads me to the next person I would like to thank. But I would like to thank him in person, so, Sami Zayn, if you’re back there listening, come on out and join the party, baby. You know, Sami, I half expected you to come out here with Damian Priest’s briefcase that you hijacked on Saturday. But wait, let me take a wild guess as to what happen, you showed up at the building and Adam Pearce made you return it, didn’t he?
Sami Zayn: Wow, that’s a pretty good guess. As a matter of fact, that’s exactly what happened.
Seth Rollins: Look, let me cut to the chase. Saturday after my match, I was in a pretty bad way. Now, I could’ve handled Damian Priest on my own, but maybe I couldn’t have handled Damian Priest on my own, so I just wanted to say, thank you, Sami. And since Saturday, I’ve been thinking about how I can repay you.
Sami Zayn: Let me stop you before you get too far. I want to be honest with you, okay? I’m really glad that I helped you out. And I appreciate that you appreciate it, but that’s not why I did what I did. I went out there because I’ve been dealing with The Judgment Day for months and months. For months, I’ve been listening to them talk about how they run Monday Night Raw. And that’s almost true because they hold every championship that’s on Raw, except for one, that World Heavyweight Championship. And if Damian Priest cashes in that Money In The Bank Briefcase, if he gets that World Heavyweight Championship, we are no longer dealing with The Judgment Day, we are then dealing with The Bloodline 2.0. And I have fought too hard and for too long to let that happen because I meant what I said last week. As long as there’s a breath of air left in my body, I will fight The Judgment Day and make sure that they don’t run this show.
Seth Rollins: Alright, Sami Zayn, everybody. Man, you know what? That’s what I’ve always loved about you. You’ve always stood up for what you think is right. It doesn’t matter if you’re out numbered, whether it’s three on one, five on one, a million on one, you keep fighting for what you believe in and I dig that conviction, man. But here’s the thing about life, people like you, they don’t get what they deserve. The Judgment Day, they don’t run Monday Night Raw, I run Monday Night Raw. And as long as I’m the World Heavyweight Champion around here, that Money In The Bank Contract is not the only way to get an opportunity at my title. Now, the reason I knew Pearce made you return the briefcase was because after you left his office, I went into his office today. And the reason I went to see Adam Pearce is the same reason I invited you out here tonight. Sami Zayn, you have got yourself a World Heavyweight Championship Match. It’s waiting for you, baby. It’s got your name on it. All you got to do is say when.
Sami Zayn: I got to be honest, Seth, you’ve caught me a little off guard, I wasn’t expecting that. I’ve learn the hard way how hard it is to get a championship opportunity in WWE. But the first thing that’s coming to my mind, when I win that World Heavyweight Championship, because mark my words, one day I will win that World Heavyweight Championship. But when I do, I want to beat a champion that’s not compromised. Seth, I mean no disrespect, I love you, we go way back, but everybody knows that you’re not 100% right now.
Seth Rollins: Cut the crap, Sami. Cut the crap, I’m not 100%. Let me ask you this, are you 100%? We go back a long time. We both been doing this for decades. Guys like you and me, we are never 100%. But that doesn’t stop us giving 100%. And so, I say again, Sami Zayn, there’s a World Heavyweight Championship Match with your name on it, just say when.
Sami Zayn: Just say when? Well, Seth, I can’t think about a better place or better time than right here, tonight.
