Stephanie McMahon came out to interrupt. Steph offers Cena a business proposition for Survivor Series saying that he should join the Authority since the fans just want to see blood and guts. She says Cena does what he does every night but just for fan appreciation. She says maybe the winner of Cena vs Rollins can be the captain of “Team Authority” at Survivor Series. Cena tells her “hell no,” which brings out HHH next. He said “told you so” to Steph and then said Cena is hanging on by a thread mentally and physically right now. He said it will be Team Authority vs Team Cena at Survivor Series. He said Cena can have anyone on his team he gets to say “Yes” but he’s going to learn The Authority always wins.
