They showed a highlight package of the Cena/Ambrose stuff from last week.
Opening segment – Dean Ambrose comes out. Ambrose said that there’s nothing that he likes more than to be locked in the cell with Seth Rollins so he can brutalize him so bad that he wishes he never heard the name Dean Ambrose but before he gets there, there’s something pissing him off. He said he has a matter to deal with…that’s John Cena, the face of WWE. He said that he needs to get through John Cena first and he doesn’t have a problem dropping John Cena where he stands and he did last week but Cena did the same to him on Smackdown. He said that The Authority just wants to protect the golden boy Seth Rollins. He said that he will grab the contract at Hell in a Cell and he’ll beat John Cena senseless with the pole and then he’ll beat Rollins head like a basketball and no one can do anything about it. John Cena comes out. Atlanta boos Cena. Cena says that Atlanta is excited. He tells Ambrose to relax because the Cena/Ambrose match is made and it’s 2 weeks from now at Hell in a Cell and it’s a match the WWE Universe wants to see because they know that they both have a chance and the Universe wants to see who gets their hands on Rollins. He said that Ambrose is talking trash maybe so Ambrose can leave him unconscious again..”or maybe you walk out of here, or maybe you don’t.” Cena said that Ambrose has the match of his life coming up and “shut up and instead of coming out here and getting all crazy, use your two weeks to get ready for the biggest match of your career.” Ambrose said that he was born ready and has been ready to whoop Cena’s ass for years. He told Cena not to talk to him like a chump and not to act like he can trust him. Cena told to him to throw it all away by losing his temper.
