Seth Rollins addresses having two matches at WWE Night Of Champions
Seth Rollins’ music hits, and the WWE World Heavyweight Champion makes his way to the ring. Rollins will face Sting at Night Of Champions with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the line. He’ll also face John Cena with the WWE United States Championship on the line the same night. Rollins stands in the ring as the crowd boos him. Rollins says it’s time to give Baltimore a reality check. Rollins says he is special. He’s not talking about the regular type of special. He’s mega special as in once in a lifetime special. The crowd boos this. Rollins says before him, it was just a pipe dream that someone would have the guts to cash in their Money in the Bank contract in the main event of WrestleMania. Before him, everyone really believed that Brock Lesnar was invincible. Before him, every single person in the entire WWE Universe was clamoring for somebody to come along and knock John Cena off the top of the WWE mountain. Rollins says that’s exactly what he did at SummerSlam when he defeated John Cena to become the first man to hold the WWE World Heavyweight and WWE United States Championships at the same time.
Rollins says Baltimore is not familiar with greatness, but he is greatness. A statue was crafted in his image to immortalize his greatness. This statue brought so much jealousy that a face painted freak… Rollins stops himself and takes a deep breath. The crowd chants, “We want Sting.” Rollins says two weeks ago, Sting stole his statue. More importantly than that, he had the audacity to put his filthy hands on the championship. Rollins warns Sting to be careful what he wishes for because at Night Of Champions, he has the opportunity of a lifetime to validate his career and cement his legacy. On the flipside, he has the opportunity to crush Sting’s legacy. That’s exactly what he’ll do. Rollin says Sting will never get his hands on his WWE World Heavyweight Championship ever again.
That’s not all. Last week, it became apparent to him that at Night Of Champions, every single championship (a “Boring” chant breaks out – Rollins tries to squash it, but it continues) is on the line. Rollins has to defend his WWE United States Championship at Night Of Champions as well. John Cena politicked his way into invoking his rematch. Now he’s defending the United States Championship against him at Night Of Champions. At first he was a little upset. He searched for the solution before it hit him. He’s Seth Rollins. This has been his year. Night Of Champions will be his night. Two future first ballot Hall of Famers are vying for both his titles in one night. Rollins will turn them into opportunities and do what he’s done to all the opportunities put in his path – he’ll own it. Just like he owns the crowd and the ring, he’ll own Sting and John Cena. He’ll own his generation and legacy. Also, if it’s the last thing he does, he’ll get his statue back. That statue wasn’t just stolen from him; it was stolen from the fans. The people deserve to see that statue every single week on the stage or by the commentary table. It’s a reminder that he’s no longer the future of WWE. He’s the man.
The sound of a crow cawing is heard, and Sting appears on the titantron. Sting says the statue doesn’t belong out there. It belongs with him. The camera zooms out to see Sting next to the statue. Sting says Rollins is the man… without a statue. Sting says it’s here. Sting is here. Sting dares him to come get the statue before dusting it with a feather duster. Sting says, “Come and get it,” before the video feed cuts.
Rollins shouts that he’s not afraid of Sting before Sheamus’ music hits. Sheamus makes his way to the ring carrying his Money in the Bank briefcase. Sheamus wonders what’s wrong with Rollins because he looks agitated. A “You look stupid” chant breaks out. Sheamus asks if Rollins is worried about his two matches at Night Of Champions. Rollins says he’s not worried about Sting, John Cena, or Sheamus. He does have to get a statue back. Sheamus asks if Rollins knows how stupid he sounds. Rollins asks if he knows how stupid he looks. Sheamus is not happy about that. Sheamus shouts that he does not look stupid. Rollins says he looks like Ronald McDonald with a bad haircut. Sheamus warns him to not bring his family into this. Rollins asks what his point is. Sheamus says his point is in his hand. Sheamus says he could make his point tonight, on Smackdown, or at Night Of Champions. Sheamus says if Rollins wins both of his matches, he may quite possibly have a third against him. Sheamus holds up the Money in the Bank briefcase as his music plays. Sheamus then walks off.
Summer Rae wants to apologize to Rusev regarding the controversy last week. Paige will take on Sasha Banks, next.
Stephanie McMahon is seen texting in her office when Seth Rollins walks in. Rollins asks if she saw what just happened before asking for Triple H. Rollins wants to know if he has a plan. Stephanie tells him to calm down because she has a plan. Rollins says he has to calm down before asking for Triple H again to see if he has a plan. Stephanie angrily stares at him before Rollins turns and sees Triple H. Triple H asks if he doesn’t think Stephanie can handle the situation. Rollins says he just thought they could come up with a plan as a family. Triple H says the situation is irrelevant because Rollins is the man. Rollins says he should focus on getting the statue. Triple H tells him to not worry about Sheamus because he’ll have his hands full with Randy Orton. Triple H tells him to not worry about the statue, but he needs to focus on what’s important. Rollins needs to focus on his two matches at Night Of Champions so he’ll compete twice to prepare for it. The first match will be Champion vs. Champion. Rollins will go one-on-one with the WWE Intercontinental Champion Ryback. The second match will be Champion vs. Challengers. Rollins will tag with The New Day to take on The Prime Time Players and John Cena. Rollins looks at Stephanie, and she says she was going to tell him to go after Sting. Hunter’s plan is better. Triple H tells him to show the world that he is Seth Rollins, and he is the man. Rollins tries to pump himself up by saying he’s the man before leaving the room.

Summer Rae issues an apology to Rusev for her behavior
Summer Rae is standing in the ring. We see a replay of the entire TMZ type story we saw earlier in the evening. Summer says this past week has been the most horrific week of her life. At the center of it all has been a man that does not deserve the scorn and ridicule he’s been getting. He is the true victim of this situation. She owes this man an apology. Summer asks Rusev to come and talk to her.
Rusev’s music hits, and he makes his way to the ring. Summer says he has been her beacon of light. He got her to get her body into the right shape for him. It’s because of Rusev that she was able to pose for Iron Man Magazine. Rusev gave her the courage. That’s why she feels so terrible. Dolph Ziggler has been trying to seduce her for weeks. When Ziggler got her to go into his locker room last week, she shouldn’t have. Her innocence got the best of her. To see Ziggler in the shower with the water on his muscles and the glistening in his eye, it was too much. She was too weak. She let Ziggler kiss her. The crowd is chanting, “Boring.” Summer starts to cry and apologize. She says she betrayed him. It was a moment of weakness.
Rusev grabs her face lightly and takes the microphone. Rusev says she betrayed him, but he accepts her apology. She calls him, “Rue-Rue.” They hug. Rusev calls her “Sweet Submissive Summer” before fixing her lipstick. It’s never been her fault. It’s that pathetic, pale, blonde, hairless, disgusting Dolph Ziggler that fed her these American lives. Rusev is not a victim. Summer is. Summer isn’t the only victim. Lana is as well. She was fed these American lives. Lana isn’t here because she has a broken wrist, but that’s a lie. She’s not here because she has a broken heart. Rusev says they may have had their differences, but he’d have never cheated on Lana or made her feel the way Ziggler has.
Dolph Ziggler makes his way to the ring. Ziggler says he knows Rusev wouldn’t do what he’s done. Most importantly, no one is buying into their lies. Ziggler doesn’t believe them, everyone knows it and so does Lana. Rusev says Lana is at home with a broken wrist. Ziggler should be there giving her flowers. Ziggler says Lana has a message for Rusev. Ziggler throws his microphone at Rusev and superkicks him. Rusev and Summer quickly retreat.
