The Authority’s Farewell To The “Yes!” Movement, Batista, Randy Orton

As we head to another commercial, we see Triple H and Stephanie McMahon backstage making their way to the ring.

When we return from commercial, Triple H’s “King of Kings” theme hits and out he comes with his lovely wife Stephanie. The power couple enters the ring, both with mics in hand, and the boo’s start pouring out from the fans in Washington, D.C.

Stephanie talks about how Triple H is going to destroy Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania. HHH says he’s not even sure how much they’re going to care. He says this generation has no loyalty. He says they just wanna be part of something. They don’t wanna do anything, because that might require effort, they just want to feel a part of something. He says one year ago at this time there was a big thing, and they both mock Fandango and the big “Fandango’ing” craze.

The fans drown out Triple H with a “CM Punk” chant as he talks about the fans throwing away Fandango. Stephanie asks who wants to see Bryan tonight. The fans all chant “Yes!” She says Triple H was right, even they could get them to chant it. She says they can chant all they want, however, because Daniel Bryan isn’t going to be here tonight. She says because that’s what’s best for business. HHH says Bryan and the “Yes!” movement is just a myth. He says he’s not an A+ player. He says they can chant “Yes!” all they want, but it doesn’t make it true. HHH says it’s the same as people who think he has all the power and success because he married well. He says he has the power because of his dominance in the ring.

HHH continues to talk as the fans break out into a loud “boring” chant. He introduces a video package. The video package, narrated by Stephanie McMahon, highlights what they were referring to as some “flavors of the month” that HHH went through. Among them were Booker T’s spinarooni, Scott Steiner posing, RVD’s thumbs, Jeff Hardy’s death defying acts, Goldberg’s “what’s next,” Chris Jericho’s “RAW is Jericho,” Mick Foley’s cheap pops, Kurt Angle’s “it’s true.” None of it mattered because in the end, the only thing that lasts is “The Game.”

After the video package, Triple H says it’s not that any of those guys aren’t great. He says they were all just players in the game though, and he is “The Game.” He says he’s “The Game” now more than ever. He says since everyone has cried about it, not only is he going to beat Daniel Bryan and the “Yes!” movement, but he’s going to step in the ring with Randy Orton and Batista and show the world that he is the most powerful man in WWE. He says he’ll walk out of WrestleMania as the C.O.O. of this company and as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

As he turns to leave, Batista’s music hits. Out comes “The Animal” in another ridiculous outfit. A t-shirt covered with a Georgetown basketball jersey, skinny jeans, Lugz boots and a goofy ass beret-type hat. Gotta love his dress style.

Batista enters the ring and grabs a mic. The fans boo the crap out of him as usual. Some fans actually chant his name. Batista says he loves this whole “say goodbye to the yes movement” thing, he calls it really cute. He says he couldn’t help but notice he wasn’t in Triple H’s video. He says that’s because Triple H has never beaten him. HHH says he’s said that plenty of times now, almost like it’s all he can think of. Batista says HHH is the brains of this operation, his wife is the brawn. The fans “oooh” and “ahhh.”

Randy Orton’s music hits. Orton comes out and tells Steph to wait a minute. He says if she’s about to slap Batista again can she wait so he can get into the ring and have a front row seat. He says on second thought, save the beating for Batista to him when he faces him in the ring later tonight. Orton says he’s not thrilled about a triple-threat match at WrestleMania, but he understands that it’s what’s best for business. He says he knows HHH is going to beat Bryan and it would be an honor to defend his titles against him, but he asks HHH to reconsider being in the match.

HHH says no amount of ass kicking is going to get him out of this. He says he’s going to lose his titles at WrestleMania, unless he becomes The Viper again. He says he’s not even sure if he could beat that guy. He says the Orton-Batista match tonight is now no disqualification. HHH’s music hits and he and Stephanie walk off. Orton and Batista look at each other, and Batista smirks. We head to commercial.

Dean Ambrose says the important thing to remember is that they didn’t disrespect them, they disrespected us. Roman Reigns says The Shield is not to be messed with. Believe that. And believe in The Shield.

Even if I’d have to grow my hair out longer or dress more feminine!
              For the clean-shaven Viper Randy Keith Orton….I’d do that!!!
              If it was any other guy who’d want me to, I wouldn’t do it then.
