“The Monday Night Messiah” Seth Rollins kicked off the final WWE RAW before the WWE Royal Rumble. Rollins’ associates, the Authors of Pain and Buddy Murphy, accompanied him to the ring. The Architect told the fans all of them played a small part in making him the man he is today. He thanked them for their support and he also thanked Murphy for his help in last week’s main event match.

Rollins called Murphy his newest disciple and hugged him. The Architect told  the wrestlers in the locker room and the fans to decide who they want to be and pick a side. Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe came to the stage. Owens said Rollins’ crew may have gotten rid of the Big Show but the two of them are still standing. Owens challenged Rollins to a fight but the Architect said they needed to decide the proper time and place. Joe called Rollins a “lame a**-hat” and Rollins invited the duo to fight the four of them. Joe revealed that he brought back up in the form of the Viking Raiders. The four men entered the ring and brawled with Rollins ‘ group. Rollins fled the ring and Joe slammed Murphy.
