Seth says he did not come out here to rain on Roman’s parade. He came here to acknowledge Roman and his success. Seth says he has a question for Roman. Can you look at yourself in the mirror at night and say that you have done that by yourself. That is the big difference. Without Roman, Seth Rollins is just fine. I was holding your hand left and right in the SHIELD days. When I sent you packing with that chair to the back you couldn’t do it on yourself. You needed the Bloodline. Who is the best? I created you and I can destroy you.
Seth starts to laugh and dance around.
Roman says this is a waste of his time. You look and sound like a clown because you are a clown. You don’t have the star power I have. If I was honest. if I was looking for a superstar from Raw, it wouldn’t be you. You wouldn’t have been the choice from your household. If I wanted to battle with a megastar, I would have chosen your Wife.
