Seth Rollins comes out and talks about WWE Extreme Rules, but he said he doesn’t need help from anyone this Sunday. Kane cuts him off and says he’s still a monster, and he could either secure Rollins’ biggest victory or biggest defeat this Sunday. Rollins says Kane won’t pull anything or he might get fired, and Triple H gave him this role because he feels sorry for him. He says Kane laid down for him a few weeks ago because it’s best for business, then Kane says it’s only fair if Rollins returns the favor.
Rollins says he is the WWE Champion and he doesn’t lay down for anyone, but Kane says he’s not anyone; he’s the key to Rollins’ future. Kane calls for a ref and tells J&J to clear the ring, then Rollins tries to talk him down but Kane tells them to ring the bell. Kane says he is The Authority right now, but Rollins says this isn’t best for business, so Kane says lay down or he will rip his guts out! Rollins reluctantly gets on the mat and tells Kane to calm down, and then Kane leans in and says he was just messing with him. Kane says he is on Rollins’ team, but he will still have a match tonight, and it’s against Dean Ambrose right now.
