MONDAY NIGHT RAW - NOVEMBER 9, 2015
Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw from Manchester, England and we kick things off with The Authority coming out to the ring and Triple H announces that as a result of the injury to Seth Rollins he has been stripped of the WWE Championship which in turn has forced a tournament to determine who the next WWE Champion will be.
Triple H introduces Roman Reigns and offers him an opportunity to join The Authority and back when they were recruiting Rollins they were seriously considering Reigns and while Evolution was fighting The Shield, Triple H was scouting and Rollins had the one thing Reigns didn't have and that was the willingness to do anything to become WWE Champion and Rollins had that and asks Reigns how it felt when Rollins took Reigns' dream of becoming WWE Champion away.
All these months later, Reigns still has all the postivie qualities and but nothing to show for it. Triple H can make all these walls around Reigns go away, all Reigns has to do is be Triple H's man. Triple H says the WWE Championship comes with criticism and not everyone is going to like him. From when he was a boy, he's wanted to be WWE Champion and Triple H is offering him that opportunity. He knows what's important to Reigns outside of wrestling and that's his family. All Reigns has to do is be Triple H's man. Triple H extends his hand and Reigns tells him everything he got in life he earned and he's never looked for a hand out and it's not happening tonight. Reigns tells Triple H to take his offer and shove it.
Triple H thanks him for reminding Triple H why he didn't choose Reigns in the first place and welcomes him to the back of the line and informs Reigns his match up is next
