WWE Royal Rumble had many rivals coming into the ring. The Monday night RAW saw many confronting each other and more challenges made. But the big one was Seth Rollins and Triple H. After the Tornado tag team match, Triple H appeared in the ring and confronted his protege Rollins, who had tried to get The Game’s attention. The confrontation was where Triple H answered questions about his betrayal of Rollins. He said that Rollins was a “failure” without his support. The 14-time World Champion then gave the shock of the night.
He called first ever two-time NXT champion Samoa Joe unexpectedly. Joe ambushed Rollins from behind and then pulled off a Coquina Cluctch. Triple H just left.
Earlier, Rollins had called out Stephanie McMahon. She did come and explained Rollins some news. She said that Triple H is scared of what he would do to Rollins, and she told Triple H not to do anything. Rollins replied that he has nothing to lose and told Stephanie that Triple H was scared of him as he would end his legacy. Stephanie demanded an apology. Rollins then threatened to invade a board of directors meeting, or the WWE headquarters or perhaps their house. That is when Stephanie dropped the bomb. She said that Triple H is coming to the arena.
