Randy Orton vs Seth Rollins confirmed for WrestleMania

Published 7 Comments

The penultimate RAW before WrestleMania XXXI ended with a fantastic segment which led to the confirmation of a huge WrestleMania clash.

The match had been confirmed earlier in the night but it was only with the help of the vigilante Sting that one man's chances of making it to WrestleMania were increased.

RAW tonight started with the members of the Authority in the ring as they all apologised to Seth Rollins for allowing Randy Orton to attack him so violently last week.

Eventually, Rollins would accept Orton's previously placed challenge for a match at WrestleMania on one condition.

That condition would be that Orton must compete in a match with Mr Money in the Bank in the main event tonight.

Throughout the show, each member of the Authority would turn on Rollins including J&J Security who would both quit their jobs.

Prior to the arranged match, Rollins would laugh and reveal that it was all staged and that the entire Authority were together and would all approach the ring.

As they circled the ring around Orton, the sound of a crow was heard and the lights would go down, when they came back up, The Vigilante Sting would be stood shoulder to shoulder with Orton.

Orton and Sting would beat back the Authority's forces who were forced to retreat at the hand of the steel chair Orton was wielding and the infamous baseball bet of Sting.

The two would give a post- show interview in the ring with Sting talking about how he will bring down Triple H at WrestleMania.

One more confirmed

With the confirmation of Orton vs Rollins, the WrestleMania match card is now all but complete.

Eight matches have been confirmed and one more is expected with the rivalry surrounding the tag team championships set to come to a head in the remaining 13 days until WrestleMania.
