Alexa Bliss lands at the commentators table. She says that Belair may be the champion, but she’s the only one here. Belair is not afraid of Bray Wyatt or Uncle Howdy, but of her, because he is the face of her evil. And she’s never felt better, because she’s taking control. He has the world in his hands and he is not afraid to use them to tag Belair and take the title.

– Back, austin theory He arrives in the ring and takes the microphone. The theory says that the champion is HERE! The truth is that he is the present and the present is forever. Where is our visionary? Where is Seth Rollins? He thought Rollins was going to defeat him, humiliate him, but Rollins’ old knee couldn’t take it. We know what happened last Monday, Seth Rollins was outclassed, Seth Rollins was taken to school by United States Champion Austin Theory. Seth Rollins’ music starts and he arrives on crutches. Rollins throws away a crutch and shows that he can finally walk on crutches. The crowd sings his theme song. The theory goes that the fans may be singing their theme song and it’s real, but the pain is real too. Rollins wants to pretend that he’s okay, but he beat him last Monday. If Rollins is the mountain of business, he is the pinnacle of business. Rollins is good, but he’s over it and he’s ready for great things. Like when he is going to win the Royal Rumble Match 2023. But there is more! After winning the Rumble, he will go to WrestleMania to emerge as the United States Champion and the new WWE Universal Champion.

Rollins asks him if he’s done. Rollins says that he needs to give an update on his knee. The truth is that his knee is not 100%. But his knee will be 100% just in time for him to win the Royal Rumble. Which leaves plenty of time for Seth Freakin Rollins to make it to the main event of WrestleMania. In the same way, he came here to hear the fans sing. The fans start chanting again. Rollins says that they will meet again at the Rumble. Rollins leaves the crutch and leaves the ring, but Bobby Lashley’s music begins! Lashley passes Rollins on the ramp and approaches the ring. Theory tells Lashley to stay out of the ring, Lashley is the past. Lashley enters the ring, dodges a kickstand and throws Theory! Lashley takes Theory out of the ring. Lashley says it doesn’t matter who is at the Royal Rumble because he’s back. His suspension is over and he can’t wait to get all the fighters out of the ring.
