He says shame on all of you people for doubting him for a second. Doubting that he wouldn’t make it to Clash of Champions. Doesn’t his track record mean anything. Twenty years in this company and the constant is that he never walked away from a title match and he won’t do it any time soon. But, the World Title Match isn’t exactly a normal World Title Match?
Orton walks to the ambulance and he opens the door. Randy says he took a ride in this very ambulance a few short weeks ago. That was because Drew McIntyre gave him not one, not two, not three, well maybe three Claymores. As I was tied on that stretcher, the sirens were blaring and he was fading out of consciousness. The feeling that came over him was how this must have been what it feels like to be taken out by the Legend Killer. This is what everyone felt like when he kicked them in the skull.
As I came to and woke up in the ambulance, a smile came over his face. It wasn’t from the pain that Drew inflicted on him. It was because he knew what he is capable of. He knows what it takes to become WWE Champion. This ambulance represents many things for different people. For some, it means hope and healing. For others, it means pain and agony… even death. This ambulance, what it represents for me is my fourteenth World Championship.
At Clash of Champions, I will make sure you have one more ride in this ambulance and your title reign flatlines thanks to the three most dangerous letters in Sports Entertainment… R… K… O…

In the Arena:
Back in the arena and The Monday Night Messiah, Seth Rollins, makes his way to the ring.
Seth says it is no secret that he has had the Mysterios number for quite some time now. After he defeated Dominik last week inside a steel cage, he thought he was done and free of the torment that the Mysterio family has been putting him through for months. There is something that has bothered him about the Mysterio family for some time. Seth says he should have let it go, but he was inspired to look into it and dig deeper by the unlikeliest of sources.
Seth mentions that WWE.com posted a series of photos of the Mysterio family and a light bulb went off.
We take a look at a photo of the family and Seth says to look at Rey and then look at Dominik. Seth says it doesn’t seem possible. We deserve the truth so Seth says he had some people do some digging and in this here folder, he has the results of that investigation. Before he delivers that information to the WWE Universe, he would like to extend the courtesy to the Mysterio family to find out the truth from him in person.
Rey makes his way to the stage with Aliyah, Angie, and Dominik. Rey says this must be important to have everyone out here. Rey says he is tired of their mind games. Rey says they will give him a beating like they gave Murphy.
Seth says this might sound crazy but speaking to your entire family, I have grown to respect you. Seth says he is inspired by them. They stand together, cheer each other on, and fight adversity together. That is why you deserve the truth. Seth says he has the results of a DNA test. Seth says he knows this has been done before and technology has changed. We need an answer to the question, are you really Dominik’s father.
Rey tells Rollins to cut the BS. Rollins says the fans and the family deserve the truth. The truth is… Rollins pulls a paper out of the holder. He says the DNA test results are conclusive – Rey is not the father of Dominik. Rollins laughs and the crowd boos him. Rey says Seth really brought them out here for that. Does Rollins really want to go down this road again? This didn’t work before and it won’t work now, Rey says. He tells Rollins to quit running his family’s name through the mud. Rollins says maybe he did make a mistake. He asked his guy to look into the Mysterio kid, but maybe it’s Aalyah who is not Rey’s daughter. Rollins says if the test isn’t enough, he’s got some concrete footage to back it up.
Rollins shows us how Aalyah briefly checked on Murphy after last week’s Steel Cage match. Rollins says that doesn’t look like something a Mysterio would do. Aalyah wasn’t consoling a family member, she was consoling his disciple. Rollins asks Aalyah what was going on there. Rey says Rollins talks to him, not her. Rey says he and his daughter already spoke about last week, and it’s nothing Rollins needs to know. He raised her to be compassionate and caring, something Rollins knows nothing about. He tells Rollins to keep her name out of his mouth. Rey says she’s just 19 years old and knows nothing about their world. Rey turns and looks at Aalyah but she walks off to the back. Angie follows. Dominik stands with his dad. Rey leaves to the back now and Dominik follows. Rollins says he’s sorry. He just came out here to inform, he didn’t come out here to drive a wedge in the family but he guesses that happens sometimes, right? Even a family as strong as The Mysterios. Rollins looks at the camera and says he’s sure this has probably even happened to some of the and and their families. He says he’s sorry again and puts the mic down. A somber Rollins marches to the back as his music hits. Rollins stops on the ramp and smirks some.
