Highlights of Seth Rollins betraying the Shield on Raw.
Triple H's "Bow Down to the King" theme music hits, and he makes his way out with a giant smile on his face. He is followed by Seth Rollins, still in Shield gear. They make their way to the ring. Triple H says the people probably think he is here to gloat and to say I told you so and that he won. He's not that kind of guy, but everyone knows that anyway. Everyone has questions for Seth Rollins, they want to know why, why he was the man that took down the Shield. The Shield crushed legends, giant and champions; the group that even defeated Evolution. Why would Rollins walk away from that, they want to know why Seth. Rollins takes the mic and says everyone wants an explanation. They want to know why he did what he did to his brothers on Raw. The only person who knows why he did what he did, and the only person who needs to know and owes anything to is himself. Rollins and Triple H whisper a bit in the ring, and then Dolph Ziggler's music hits. Ziggler is sure he'll catch a beating for this and will get punished and pushed down the card, but he can't listen to this. He was not a fan of the Shield, but he dug them because they went against the Authority, they won against Evolution, and even got Batista to quit. But what Rollins did on Monday was far worse than anything the Shield ever did; he turned his back on his brothers. Rollins is nothing more than a traitor, and he sold out. Rollins and Triple H whisper a bit more, and Triple H says Ziggler has a fair point. Something that Ziggler will never do, sell out arenas night after night. Triple H also says he will get a beating tonight, and it will happen right now, because he will go one on one with Seth Rollins.

But then he remembered her face, and how she used to warn him about the evil place. They will circle you in the water, but those sharks will help you realize death is real and in death, you will find rest. In rebirth, you will grow stronger. You will learn to accept the responsibilities and become their leader. Your voice will sooth them and you will lead their armies. You will lead the lost and you will stand.

He plans to do the same to Orton tonight.
