WWE RAW Results (1/20) - Wichita, KS
We are live from the Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, KS, as Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring with Akam, Rezar, and Buddy Murphy.

Seth says he wants everyone to know something. He says you have all played a part in making him the man he is today. Without all of you, there is no Monday Night Messiah. Seth says thank you to everyone. Thank you so much for believing in him and for your support. For all of the faith that you have place in him to make Raw the premier program in WWE. For all of that, I am forever in your debt. Seth says there is someone he needs to thank specifically. Last week, this man opened his eyes and he embraced his fate. Last week, when Akam, Rezar, and he were in their darkest moments, this man was brave enough to rise up and he stands firmly etched on the right side of history.

We see a video of what happened during the Fist Fight Match last week, with Buddy Muprhy helping Seth Rollins and The AOP to get the win.

Seth officially introduces the newest disciple, Buddy Murphy. Seth says Kevin and Joe were standing in the way of progress and they even brought in the Big Show. Their plan failed because this is destiny and it is determinism at its finest. We have reached a crucial time. It is time for you to decide who you want to be. You are either with us or you are against us. For those who stand in opposition to us..,

Kevin Owens' music interrupts. Owens is joined by Samoa Joe on the stage.

Kevin asks Joe if Seth talks to much. Kevin says he understands coming out here and gloating about taking out the Big Show. You should be proud of yourself. The problem you are running into is that the Big Show will be back eventually. The bigger problem is that you didn't get rid of us. Kevin says he thinks the good people of Kansas agree with him when he says that we are sick of hearing Seth's voice. Kevin suggests less talking . . . more fighting.

Seth says that if Kevin wants to fight, they can fight, but they will not fight right now. Seth says they need the proper time and place. Joe interrupts and he says that he thinks he sees a self-proclaimed Monday Night Messiah, but it sounds like a typical lawyered up asshat.

Seth says he is a forgiving man and it is in his nature as a human. The AOP not so much. If the two of you are hellbent on coming down and fighting the four of us, there is nothing left to say but come on down and dance with destiny.

Joe says one of the side effects of being an asshat is not being able to listen good. Joe says they were ready for a fight, but they weren't alone. Joe asks for his boys to come out and The Viking Raiders join Joe and Kevin.

Everyone is fighting except for Seth Rollins. Owens with a stunner to Akam and Joe with a uranage to Buddy. Joe's music hits as the babyfaces stand tall and taunt Rollins and his crew.
