No one could question Randy’s abilities, it is where his loyalties lie. Randy should be an example because if that is what they do to one of their own, what does that mean for everyone? You are with the Authority or against it. Choose wisely.
Dolph Ziggler was offered an opportunity to have the world. Instead, he chose your admiration, your adulation. Dolph thinks he can survive if he aligns with Team Cena. Let’s see if you can survive tonight against me.

Dean asks Christian if he knows. Dean says that you usually go after the person who has something that you want, but Dean says that he has nothing. There is no title for Bray to take from him. What does he want? Dean says that he thinks Bray likes to play mind games. The people who cannot handle the volume being turned up, so Bray preys on weak minded people.
Dean says that his mind is a dangerous place to be. Nobody knows him. Dean says that he does this because it is fun. He likes danger, fighting, adrenaline, riding on the edge of the lightning bolt.

Bray Wyatt’s screen saver shows up and his music plays. Wyatt makes his way onto the stage with his smoking lantern.
Bray sits down in his conveniently placed rocking chair.
Bray says that Dean has nothing to fear because he has nothing to lose. Bray says that there was a time when Dean had something to fight for. A time when you had safety and security with the Shield. Bray laughs and he asks what happened. What happened? That love was ripped from you and that security was taken away. It has left you like a fish out of water, gasping for air.
He asks Dean if he knows who he is and what it is that he does? He says that he heals. He heeled Erick Rowan and Luke Harper. He can heal Dean Ambrose too. All Dean has to do is take his hand and he can make it all go away. He knows that salvation is not for everyone. He once offered his hand to Daniel Bryan. Daniel defied him. Now he is nowhere to be seen. Dean, you can be different. He says that he can fix him. What does Dean have to lose? Your own father turned his back on you.
Does he still send you postcards from prison? He wants Dean to tell him he is wrong and prove him wrong.
