#RawUK #RawLiverpool – From the UK tonight. John Cena opens the show explaining The Authority doesn’t want him to have a team for Survivor Series. But he says he has two guys; Jack Swagger — who will face Seth Rollins tonight, and the other is Dolph Ziggler. Cena says he is fighting Ryback in the main event tonight, but asks him to come on out because he knows Authority has held him back and hopes maybe they can form an alliance. Ryback enters the ring with Cena. Then HHH, Kane, Setph, Rollins come out, then Mark Henry comes out as now part of The Authority. HHH says he’s going to put the fear of God into everyone so they don’t join Team Cena. Steph gives Ryback their pitch for him to join Authority. HHH backs her up offering Ryback more of anything he wants.
“The Big Guy’s not afraid of The Authority,” says Ryback. “I also don’t see John Cena’s name at the bottom of the Big Guy’s paycheck,” he adds, then picks Cena up for a Spine Buster. “Yes! Yes! Yes!” chants Steph, as she and HHH mock a stretched out Cena. So I guess we know where Ryback stands now.
