The closing moments of Monday Night RAW might have seen The Authority back away from the combined threat of Randy Orton and Sting, leading people to believe that WrestleMania will have a happy ending; but what if they fail? What if The Authority prevail over their adversaries?
Randy Orton’s venom struck last week after weeks of gaining The Authority’s trust. Seth Rollins, as The Architect, should have seen through Randy’s ploy, but he was blinded by his own ego to see the obvious. His carelessness landed him a first-class ticket to bitch town as Orton laid the proverbial smack down and drove his body through the announce table with a hellacious RKO.
Orton was successful because The Authority were not in Rollins’ corner that night. But as seen at the end of RAW, The Authority undoubtedly has Seth’s back and will certainly make their presence felt in their WrestleMania match. Randy Orton is a vicious competitor and would have no problem striking down each member with an RKO, while continuing to unleash his rage on the self-professed Future of the WWE, but the numbers game will certainly be a factor. The Authority may not care about the rules of the match and decimate Randy Orton.
The Vigilante Sting foiled The Authority’s plans once again when he inserted himself as Orton’s back up. With his signature bat in hand, and the element of surprise, Sting was able to help Orton fend off The Authority. More importantly, Sting was able to burrow his way deeper inside Triple H’s psyche.
Knowing Triple H, he will want to have Sting to himself without any outside interference. It’s been his creed as The King of Kings, which has led to many losses at The Showcase of The Immortals. It’s how the saying goes, pride comes before the fall. Triple H believes that he can eliminate Sting from the record books, and prove once and for all that WWE was superior to WCW in every facet.
We know why Sting finally decided to come to the WWE (read Sting: The New Face of Vengeance). But what if he fails to extinguish the corrupt Triple H? What if he fails just like he did WCW?
And what if The Big Show or Kane win The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal?
Then there’s the matter of the WWE World Heavyweight championship. Brock Lesnar versus Roman Reigns may be the main event of the show, but that doesn’t mean either one will walk out with the title. Seth Rollins can and most likely will cash in Money in the Bank to solidify himself as the Face of the WWE.
The Authority would reign supreme at the top of the mountain without anyone to oppose them. And just like what happened in WCW when the nWo took over, WWE will crumble at the heels of The Authority.
