The show opens with a video recapping Daniel Bryan's road to being stripped of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Then, a video is shown that hypes the wrestlers in the main event at Money in the Bank.
Afterwards, Triple H, Seth Rollins, and Randy Orton are waiting in the ring. Triple H says that people refer to eras in wrestling. Today, he's heard it called the reality era, but it should be more accurately called the authority era. The Authority is constantly making history. This Sunday, history will be made. At the end of Money in the Bank, a new champion will be crowned, and that man will be the new face of the WWE.
That's not all though. At Money in the Bank, there will also be a traditional Money in the Bank match. If he were a betting man, he would be willing to say that Orton will be the new champ, and Rollins will win the Money in the Bank match. Whether the fans like it or not, that's what's best for business.
Orton says that Triple H is right. He will win on Sunday and become the new champ. Once again, he will be the face of the WWE. Rollins says that he will become the new Money in the Bank holder and forge his own destiny. In case things work out, there is always a plan B.
Orton asks what Rollins thinks will go wrong. Rollins says it's not unthinkable that Orton won't get the job done again. Orton says it's not unthinkable that without the Shield guys he will whip Rollins's ass.
Triple H says that Orton should trust Rollins because he does. The reality of it is that the Authority is constant. That's not going to change. They can either survive against the Authority, or thrive with the Authority. He tells them to adapt or perish. He calls Orton the present and Rollins the future. It's best for business.
